Capturing Bleakness

Sometimes secular music seems to capture the bleakness of the human situation more profoundly then any Christian song does. I think this is the natural order of a fallen world. And as much as secular music may capture the world’s bleakness, it cannot comprehend it like more religious music does. Each has its place. This song by OneRepublic (Say) speaks to where I was at spiritually not too long ago. Some of the lyrics capture my bleakness so perfectly:

Do you know where your heart is?
Do you think you can find it?
Or did you trade it for something
Somewhere better just to have it?

Well, bless my soul
You’re a lonely soul
Cause you won’t let go
Of anything you hold

Do you know what your fate is?
And are you trying to shake it?
You’re doing your best and your best look
You’re praying that you make it
