You can't have one foot in the water
And one foot in the sand
You've got to make a decision
You have to take a stand
In this world that's always changing
Where the lines are hard to see
We must rise above the compromise
And then we will be free
Chorus
Free to love
Free to give
Give up everything we hold on to
If we leave this world behind then
We'll be free to live
We will be free in Christ
We can't have one foot in the water
And one foot in the sand
I have wandered through the mountains
I have made with my own hands
But what good is a kingdom
If it's built on shifting sand
It was only just an illusion
It was never meant to stand
I am here in my confession
And you've made me understand
REPEAT CHORUS
When you gonna wake up
It's time for you to wake up
