Departmental assistance not required and unwanted
In the belly of the artist living off the love of the Lord
Found in him.
Assign a case manager to this poor soul so he will prosper they said
And earn his way in.
For he will belong when his stripes have been attained.
But he had remembered the Lord in his youth,
The case manager did not know Departmental assistance not required.
We do life a certain way, you’ll belong that way they said.
Where indeed you will, dear man…
But in the belly of an artist living off the Lord
Was found the deeper recesses of water
That had nourished his soul
If they hadn’t come
He might still be at peace
In the deeper recesses of his soul.
In the artist living off the Lord
The Lord was still here,
Abundant life had already fashioned
Departmental assistance was not required.
The artist’s spirit could not be broken.
Deeper waters already brooding.
