People change and plans get changed and
Everything changes but You
Everybody moves around and
Everything gets pushed around but You
You always stay the same, stay the same

I want to finish last
Last in the world's eyes
No matter what I do
I will be first in your eyes

I am running in this race and
I am pressing onwards towards the finish line
You have promised me a better life
Far beyond this world, far beyond this place and time

    General CommentThis is yet another good song by Stellar Kart. I want to finish last in the worlds eyes (by being a Christian and being set apart from the world it might not make me the most "popular" or "successfull" by the Worlds standards) but by being different from the World (in it, not of it) I would be finishing first in God's eyes, and that is all that matters, so I want to "I want to finish last,
    Last in the world's eyes and No matter what I do
    I will be first in your eyes"

    General CommentI LOVE this song!!! I think most people don't notice it 'cause it's last on the C.D., but it's AWESOME! I like it because it speaks such truth. How I long to finish last here on earth! May I be like David, called a fool for dancing in the streets to give my God glory.
    Plus, I could SO see this song playing at the end of some hit t.v. show, like One Tree Hill or The O.C., in the last dramatic moment before it goes off; that would be really cool. It has that sound to it. I could see it.

    General Commentthis song is an awesome nonconformity song.
    forget what the world thinks.
    no matter what the world thinks of me, even if i seem to finish the race last...
    there's so much more waiting for me with God.

    General CommentThis has always been my favorite song by them. Always. It expresses exactly what all Christians should live by, which is that we shouldn't care what the world thinks about the way we look or how we act because what we do is all for God's glory, not for our own. I'd love the chance to sing this in my church.
