1. Insignificance

From the recording Oaths of Abundance

This song was written as counterbalance to narcissism inherent in today's me generation. You can either worship your higher power or you can worship yourself and your own ideas. When you get to the end of yourself and realize your own insignificance, you get to the beginning of God and the start of a life no longer belonging to you if you are opening to being a vessel or an instrument of a purpose higher that is more meaningful than anything you can ever imagine.

I'm just a drop in the ocean
No matter what I do, I lose
With misguided devotion to anything but you

I see them getting drunk
On power, sex and booze
Believe in self too much
It seems they are confused

Lord, I do pray that I can be different
Lord, I accept my insignificance
'cause I'm nothing without you, nothing without you
Want to be all about you
I'm nothing without you
Lord, I accept my insignificance (x2)

Pre-Chorus 2:
I see them getting drunk
On money, looks and youth
They don't see their gold is junk
They think their lies are true
