"Lose My Soul/Afterparty" as written by Christopher E. Stevens, Toby Mckeehan and Michael Ripoll....
Man, I wanna tell you all something, man
Man I'm not gonna let these material thing's, get in my way, you all
I'm trying to get somewhere
I'm trying to get somewhere
That's real and pure and true and eternal

Father God, I am clay in your hands
Help me to stay that way through all life's demands
'Cause they chip and they nag and they pull at me
And every little thing I make up my mind to be
Like I'm gonna be a daddy whose in the mix
And I'm gonna be a husband who stays legit
And I pray that I'm an artist who rises above
The road that is wide and filled with self love
Everything that I see draws me
Though it's only in You that I can truly see
that its a feast for the eyes, a low blow to purpose
And I'm a little kid at a three ring circus

I don't want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul
Don't wanna walk away, let me hear the people say
I don't want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul
Don't wanna walk away, let me hear the people say

(Mr. Franklin, Step up to the mic sir)

The paparazzi flashes, and that they think that it's you
But they don't know that who you are is not what you do
True, we get it twisted when we peak at the charts
Yo before we part from the start
Where's your heart?
You a pimp, hustler?
Tell me what's your title
America has no more stars, now we call them idols
You sit idle, While we teach prosperity
The first thing to prosper should be inside of me
We're free
Not because of 22's on the range
But Christ came in range, we said yes now we changed
Not the same, even though I made a fall
Since I got that call, no more Saul, now I'm Paul
(Yep!)

I don't want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul
Don't wanna walk away, let me hear the people say
I don't want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul
Don't wanna walk away, let me hear the people say
Don't wanna walk away
Don't wanna walk away

How do I sense the tide that's rising?
De-sensitizing me from living in light of eternity
How do I sense the tide that's rising?
It's hypnotizing me from living in light of eternity
How do I sense the tide that's rising?
De-sensitizing me from living in light of eternity

(Lord what we gonna do,We're relying on you
All eyes are on you Lord
All eyes are on you, all eyes are on you Jesus)

I don't want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul
Don't wanna walk away, let me hear the people say
(Don't let me lose my soul, my soul)
I don't want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul
(This is my honesty, Father, won't you cover me)
I don't want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul
(Don't wanna walk away, and all those people say)
I don't want to gain the whole world, and lose my soul
(Don't wanna lose, I don't wanna lose my soul)

Lord forgive us when we get consumed by the things of this world
That fight for our love, and our passion
As our eyes are open wide and on you
Grant us the privilege of your world view
And may your kingdom be, what wakes us up, and lays us down

(Hallelujah, don't wanna lose our soul
No, don't wanna lose my soul)

Hey excuse me
I'm looking for the after party
Toby
Ha ha, yeah, last door on the left, you'll hear it
Thanks
No problem

Don't let me lose my soul, I never wanna walk away
I don't wanna lose my soul
No, no, no
Don't let me, don't let me, lose my soul
I don't wanna walk away
Don't let me walk away
Na na na na no
Don't let me lose, my soul
I'm never gonna walk away
