That anchor man


says the fight began

somewhere in the Middle East.

The world prays for peace.

There's a single mom

just got laid off when she lost a job

to some foreign hands

in some faraway land.

Last night in Oklahoma

some twister took thirteen


and they're praying that they find

the missing three.

God must be busy.



That highway sign

went from slow ahead

to traffic's dead.

Thought it couldn't get worse

than that Amber Alert.


They say she's 4,

Colorado plates, headed out-of-state

in a Chevy van.

It's hard to understand.

You can see it in the faces

of all those highway strangers,

they're praying that God

keeps that girl from danger.

God must be busy.




And I know in the big picture

I'm just a speck of sand

and God's got better things to do

than look out for one man.

I know he's heard my prayers

cause he hears everything,

he just ain't answered back

or he'd bring you back to me.


God must be busy.



That evening news,

Ain't much changed

pretty much the same

since I left home.

Yeah that war's still on.

They found that little girl.

She was soaking wet,


half scared to death

on the side of some road.

Them prayers work, you know.

And the Bloods and Cripps are at it,

and theres a killer drought down south,

and old folks can't afford the drugs

they can't live with out.

God must be busy.




And I know in the big picture

I'm just a speck of sand

and God's got better things to do

than look out for one man.

I know he's heard my prayers

cause he hears everything,

he just ain't answered back

or he'd bring you back to me.

God must be busy.




That anchorman,

says the fightings worse,

cities burn in the Middle East.

[The] world prays for peac
