"Reality" as written by Steve Taylor, Steve Taylor and Peter Furler....
"Mom and Dad,
I'm fine.
How are you?
I have joined a small circus
(that much is true)
I'm a little malnourished, but try to relax.
Could you find,
A better photo for the milk carton backs?

Send money."

Runaway
Where's your head?
Dreamers' dreams
Are grounded

In reality
That comes from above
God is calling
There's no bigger love
It's his reality that welcomes us back
Trust and obey
There is no other way

"Mom and Dad,
I'm fair.
How's life?
Lent the money you sent me to the clown
With the knife. My career as an acrobat hasn't begun,
But I'm busy giving blood and shoveling elephant dung.

Send money."

Runaway
Why so tense?
Dreamers' dreams
Will make sense

In reality
That comes from above
God is calling
There's no bigger love
It's his reality that welcomes us back
Trust and obey
There is no other way

Runaway
Blowing smoke
Your folks are worried
(and going broke)

After the fall
Is an all-new episode
Reality
Is the high road

    General Commentfirst, has anyone seen Down Under The Big Top? It was inspired by this song. It stars the 'boys and is the funniest movie i ever watched.
    When someone runs awasy from God, or home someone will welcome back. Also saying God should be first in you life, once you figured that out, the rest is easy-er.
