Mom & Dad,

I'm fine. How are you? I have joined a
Small circus (that much is true). I'm a
Little malnourished, but try to relax.
Could you find a better photo for the milk
Carton backs?

Send money.

Runaway
Where's your head?
Dreamers' dreams
Are grounded

Chorus
In reality
That comes from above
God is calling
There's no bigger love
It's his reality that welcomes us back
Trust and obey
There is no other way

Mom & Dad,

I'm fair. How's life? Lent the money you
Sent me to the clown with the knife. My
Career as an acrobat hasn't begun, but
I'm busy giving blood and shoveling
Elephant dung.

Send money.

Runaway
Why so tense?
Dreamers' dreams
Will make sense

- Chorus -

Runaway
Blowing smoke
Your folks are worried
(and going broke)

After the fall
Is an all-new episode
Reality
Is the high road

- Chorus -

    When you are obedient to god, no matter how crazy the thing god called you to may seem, there is nothing better you could do than simply trust and obey god. The world percieves "reality" to having a steady job with a husband/wife and a few children and family get togethers and always staying in your spiritual "comfort zone. " but the real reality of this life is going wherever god calls you to go, even if that is a circus - and he will always come through; trust him, and wait on god.
