Better
by Josiah Williams

Album: Rerouting, Vol. 2


Verse 1
You call me intelligent
When it's relevant
You say I can do more, and you phrase it with eloquence
Why do I settle for being short of incredible?
I could use my whole heart and mind
And not a sectional

Apparently, I'm a man of potential
Could be higher
If God is my audience, then I'm preaching to the choir
'cause I could be
Reaching out to those that feel like they weren't chose
They fell and never arose
So they hurt, and it shows

Why should I be selfish? When I could be selfless?
Helping someone else could really tell me what the "self" is
Got so much inside, I gotta let it out
I'm clearing all of these weeds
I'm tryna learn how to sprout

I am the only problem, I gotta learn how to see
Showing you God's love while showing what I can be
Gave it all to the King, while the world wanna be a Prince
And I haven't felt the same ever since
(And Christ said:)

Chorus
I know what you want
You just wanna be
Better

You can come to me
For whatever you need
Forever

You know that I love you (x4)

Verse 2
Kinda hard when you're living life with a mirror
That's pointing at everything killing you in sight
Reflecting all of these images
Saying "Go be a ruler."
Spending so much time winning, you fail at being a loser
Can't be a connoisseur cause you're living in sin
Wrapped around you like a waistband that holds you within

They told me 'bout God's peace, that's exactly what I needed
I'm a glass half-empty, and God came to complete it

I'm not a shining example, but I live in His shine
I can tell you the direction without reading the sign
I'm working on getting memorized
All of these verses that I recognize, so everytime I say 'em
I get energized

I'd rather be redeemed instead of rotten
And I'd rather be forgiven than forgotten
Tryna get that rebound, something like Dennis Rodman
But I'm living for chapter 3:23 in Colossians
What?

Chorus
I know what you want
You just wanna be
Better

You can come to me
For whatever you need
Forever

You know that I love you (x4)

Verse 3
I don't wanna think about the past
I'm just moving on
I've got a whole lot in my life that I'm improving on
I've got people sayin' that they like the old me
That's what they told me
But, I can say it now:
It was too hard to control me

I may not be perfect
But, I know I'm workin'
And I know that I'm confident even when I ain't certain
Cause I trust in a God that's gon' watch my back
And that's Psalm 55 for you to check that fact

Chorus (x2)
I know what you want
You just wanna be
Better

You can come to me
For whatever you need
Forever

You know that I love you (x4)
