"Lose My Soul/Afterparty (ft. Kirk Franklin & Mandisa)" Lyrics [edit]
by TobyMac | from the album Discover: tobyMac EP
 

Father God, I am clay in your hands
Help me to stay that way through all life's demands
'Cause they chip and they nag and they pull at me
And every little thing I make up my mind to be

Like I'm gonna be a daddy whose in the mix
And I'm gonna be a husband who stays legit
And I pray that I'm an artist who rises above the road that is wide and filled with self love
Everything that I see draws me
Though its only in You that I can truly see that its a feast for the eyes - a low blow to purpose
And I'm a little kid at a three ring circus

I don't want to gain the whole world and lose my soul
Don't wanna walk away let me hear the people say
I don't want to gain the whole world and lose my soul
Don't wanna walk away let me hear the people say

The paparazzi flashes and that they think that itís you
But they donít know that who you are is not what you do
True, we get it twisted when we peak at the charts
Yo before we part from the start whereís your heart?
Youíre a pimp, hustler?
Tell me whatís your title
America has no more stars now we call them idols
You sit idle
While we teach prosperity
The first thing to prosper should be inside of me
Weíre free Ö
Not because of 22ís the a range
But Christ came in range we said yes now we changed
Not the same even though I made a fall
Since I got that call no more Saul now Iím Paul

How do I sense the tide that's rising?
De-sensitizing me from living in light of eternity
How do I sense the tide that's rising?
It's hypnotizing me from living in light of eternity

Behind the Song:
"Itís easy for any of us to fall into the trap of setting our eyes on success and achievements. I wanted to be honest about my struggle because I believe no one is alone in it and we can learn from each other. I wrote my verse as a prayer, one that I find myself praying often. ĎFather God I am clay in your hands. I wanna stay that way thru all lifeís demands cause they chip and they nag and they pull at me and every little thing I make up my mind to be, Like Iím gonna be a daddy whoís in the mix, and Iím gonna be a husband who stays legit and Iím gonna be an artist who rises above, the road that is wide and filled with self loveĒ Since I was a kid, my dadís favorite verse has always been on the back of his business card. ďWhat does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul?Ē With an infectious chorus melody and an all-star choir on the vamp it already felt like an anthem. Enter Kirk Franklin as a guest on the second verse and Mandisa (American Idol) on the bridge and we are officially over the top." - TobyMac
