la la land

Let's face it -- being a Christian isn't easy, especially if we are really walking the walk. It's a lot easier to just leave well enough alone and hide in our own "bubble." This song is about those "easy chair" Christians who don't live out their Christianity the way the Bible specifies. While "walking" out our Christianity is a daily struggle, the rewards of eternal life far outweigh the sacrifices we make here on earth. - Ian

The question isn't whether it's true
The question--"Is it working for you?"
Marshmallow skies
And custardy pies
And nothing's too hard to do

They're five happy verses or so
They told me all I needed to know
Ignore all the rest
Trials and tests
And threats to my comfort zone

Well I've got no time to find out what's real
I stick with what I happen to feel
It feels grand
When you're livin' in lala land

You can name a blessing yourself
Stake a claim on power and wealth
And strong healthy teeth
A spot at the beach
And romance that's really swell

All the saints and martyrs alike
Well they would have called a national strike
Demanded less pain
More personal gain
If only they'd known their rights

Well I take it very personally
Yeah, I got to know what's in it for me
Ain't it grand?
When you're livin' in lala land

I've got my prayer cloth collection in a Jesus jar
I've got the Holy Ghost ridin' in the back of my car
Sometimes He gives a little tickle I go "hardee har har"
Ain't it grand, when you're livin' in lala land

My Jesus decal does quite a trick
Right above my dashboard I stick it
A good luck charm
It keeps me from harm
And saves me from speeding tickets

Well I take it very personally,
Yeah -I gotta know what's in it for me
Ain't it grand, When you're livin' in lala land
