Words and music by Bob Hartman
Based on Matthew 28:19, 22:9

It's so easy to lose the burden - Take our eyes off the fields
Settle into apathy and forget what the harvest yields
It's so easy to think we're finished with our labor for awhile
Kick back and let somebody else go the extra mile

(Chorus)
Jesus said Go (Go!) into all the world
Make disciples of all men
We gotta Go (Go!) to the highways and compel them to come in
As long as there's a tearful eye that cries alone at night
As long as there's a weary soul ready to end the fight
As long as there's an aching heart that still has strength to beat
We gotta take this message back to the street
We gotta take this message back to the street

It's so easy to stay untangled in everyone else's life
Don't get involved with strangers - don't get involved with strife
It's so easy to save your own life - resting on what you've done
But Jesus would leave the ninety nine to try to save the one

It's not easy to beat the system
It's not easy to face the heat
But somebody's got to take this message
Back to the street

    With biblical knowledge, i think that this song is talking about the struggle for people to tell about jesus' command to spread the news about him dying for our sins and rising again (the great commission "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, the son, and the holy spirit... ")
