Desperationville

This song is by MercyMe and appears on the album Pleased to Meet You (1995).

Well this town's gone crazy
Where they talk about love
It seems they've gotten lazy
Answers just 'all the above'
There is no restitution
No effort to find what they have lost
Only desiring tainted solutions
To avoid the actual cost

Oh, you can almost hear them
Their silent screams coming through
How can our Father forgive us
When we've never been introduced?
Will somebody tell them?
There is a love burning in the dark
A love that's like no other
Saying, 'come as you are'

This town needs a hero
But will they welcome Him?
That in hope is less than zero
It's just another day in Desperationville

No one answers to no one
Or so their stubborn minds think
This town's just a loaded gun
Bang! Before an eye can blink
Everyone's pointing fingers
'Don't look at me if it goes wrong'
They're all heartbroken singers
Singing the same old sad songs

Oh, you can almost hear them
Their silent screams coming through
How can our Father forgive us
When we've never been introduced?

Oh, this town needs a hero
But will they welcome Him? Oh
Well that in hope is less than zero
It's just another day in Desperationville, yeah

Somebody tell them
There is a love burning in the dark
A love that's like no other
Saying, 'come as you are' in Desperationville
In Desperationville
Welcome to, to Desperationville
Ooohh, oh, oh
