THEY TRIED TO BRING EGYPT BACK

THEY TRIED TO BRING EGYPT BACK

They tried to bring Egypt back

They treated them like Israelites in captivity

They were free

But their mindsets kept them in bondage

They ate the lies

And fell for the tricks

They tried to bring Egypt back

They forgot who they were

They sold their rights

They wandered away from the light

They wore shackles

Camouflaged as jewelry

They tried to bring Egypt back

They created a playpen

Threw in toys

But built walls around the pen

Around and around they ran

No exit…no doors

They tried to bring Egypt back

Very few saw it coming…
