"Lost the Plot" as written by Steve Taylor, Steve Taylor and Peter Furler....
When You come back again
Would You bring me something from the fridge?
Heard a rumor that the end is near
But I just got comfortable here.

Sigh.
Let's be blunt.
I'm a little distracted.
What do You want?

Headaches and bad faith
Are all that I've got.
First I misplaced the ending
Then I lost the plot.

Out among free-range sheep
While the big birds sharpen their claws.
For a time we stuck with the Shepherd
But You wouldn't play Santa Claus

Sigh.
Let's be blunt.
We're a little distracted.
What do You want?

Once we could follow,
Now we cannot.
You would not fit our image,
So we lost the plot

Once we could hear You.
Now our senses are shot.
We've fogotten our first love.
We have lost the plot.

When I saw You for the first time
You were hanging with a thief.
And I knew my hands were dirty,
And I dropped my gaze.
Then You said I was forgiven
And You welcomed me with laughter.
I was happy ever after.
I was counting the days
When You'd come back again.
We'll be waiting for You.
When You comin' back again?
We'll be ready for You.
Maybe we'll wake up when...
Maybe we'll wake up when
You come back again.

Lies.
Let's be blunt.
We're a little unfaithful.
What do You want?

Are You still listening?
'Cause we're obviously not.
We've forgotten our first love.
We have lost the plot.

And why are You still calling?
You forgave, we forgot.
We're such experts at stalling
That we lost the plot.
Lost the plot.

When You come back again
Would You bring me something from the fridge?
Heard a rumor that the end is near
But I just got comfortable here.

    Revelation 2:4 yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repend and do the things you did at first.
    -----
    Revelation 2:1-7
    1"To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:
    These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands: 2I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. 3You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. 4Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. 5Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. 6But you have this in your favor: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.

    General CommentMy favorite Newsboys song hands down!
    Peter Furlers vocals are on the money,it's raw and to the point and sadly describes many christians who have gotten too comfortable here on earth,forgetting that something greater awaits those who are faithful to the end.

    General CommentHeh, I get it. Listening to the whole song helps. Its about someone who has become apathetic to everyone and everything around them. They're realizing they're moving away from something that was good in there lives but they just dont care anymore.

    General CommentGreat Song. He is talking about the Christian church and how many of us have become stagnat and comfortable.

    If you love this album's lyrics, you would probably enjoy Steve Taylor's lyrics. He is the reason Newsboys became big, helping them produce and write their songs.

    General CommentI get a sense of grief and anger in the vocal delivery that doesn't match any other Newsboys song... From the line "lost the plot" matching John James' statement in various interviews, I have often wondered if this song is an outpouring of the grief Peter Furler was feeling to the lifestyle that John was living during that time.

    I know that sometime between the release of TMTYL and SUTTM, JJ confessed and was asked to leave the band...

    Speculation, but this perspective really gives a richer tone to the song
