Human Being

by Caroline Cobb

"Human Being" explores what it means to be human in the digital media age, about my struggle to stay awake to wonder even as our phones draw us into narcissism or escape, about hearing God's whisper in the midst of all the noise. Releasing 7.26.

l y r i c s:

I don’t want to play the game
I don’t live inside a screen
I’m not for sale, not a brand, not a name
I am a human being

I want to let all my friends up close
Where I’m fragile, unfiltered and weak
’Cause only the broken can be redeemed
It’s the way of the human being

From dust we came, to dust we’ll go
Still Love has called our name
We were made for more than this fool’s gold
Or acting on this stage
Oh can’t you feel that ache

So teach me to number my days
Turn my eyes from worthless things
I want to see my children and watch them grow
I want to pray in the secret when no one knows
Look up at the stars and turn down the noise
And listen for that still, small voice
I want to lay down the trifles and choose the feast
For we were made for eternal things…
I am a human, we are all human
We are all human beings
We are all human beings
