"Sprinter" as written by and Mackenzie Ruth Scott....
Word of life, I'm so retreat
I picked it up and took a swing
My pastor told us don't you worry
Even he has found his glory
Why, why's a sprinter then?
Leaving the sea den

The pastor lost his position
Went down for pornography
So I found myself some ground to stand
Bound to be the better man
'Cause I was a sprinter then
Leaving the sea den

Round up, moving and holding a pattern
Circle around in a logic
Under a pack I plead to stay
Then went down for a deep sea den

'Cause I was a sprinter then
Die in the sea den
I was a sprinter then
Die in the sea den

There's freedom to, and freedom from
Dream of the one from everyone
There's freedom to, and freedom from
Dream of the one from everyone
Well what I did is what is done
The Baptist in me chose to run
But if there's still time to choose the sun
I'll choose the sun, I'll choose the sun
I'll run it back, I'll choose the sun
I'll run it back to everyone
If there's still time I'll choose the sun
I'll run it back to everyone

    General CommentLooks like my lyrics were replaced with this. I'll post what I believe to be the correct lyrics again:

    Word of life on severed tree
    I picked it up and took a swing
    My pastor told us, "Don't you worry"
    Even Zacchaeus found his glory

    I was a sprinter then
    Living dissident

    Pastor lost his position
    Went down for pornography
    So I found myself some ground to stand
    Bound to be the better man

    'Cause I was a sprinter then
    Living dissident

    Wound up in a holding pattern
    Circled my landing in a lather
    Unnerved, I laughed, I planned to snag
    But then went down for a dipso jag

    'Cause I was a sprinter then
    Dying dissident
    I was a sprinter then
    Dying to see it end

    There's freedom to and freedom from
    Freedom to run from everyone

    There's freedom to and freedom from
    Freedom to run from everyone

    Well, what I did is what is done
    The baptist in me chose to run

    But if there's still time to choose the sun
    I'll choose the sun, I'll choose the sun

    I'll run it back, I'll choose the sun
    I'll run it back to everyone

    If there's still time, I'll choose the sun
    And I'll run it back to everyone

    Song FactMackenzie said:

    “‘Sprinter’ is definitely about my love and appreciation for my upbringing, but also my desire to run away. I was raised in the Baptist Church in Georgia. My parents are very sweet, churchgoing people. They’re content in that; I wasn’t.”
