Because I'm alrightAnother departure from typical CCM fare is "Big Fish," a song about the trouble we get ourselves into when we don't follow God's leading in our lives.
Trouble may find me
But it's not gonna keep me down
'Cause I'll hold on tight
To the Father who loves me
He likes having me around
Yeah, He loves me and He cares for me
And so I'll be alright.
Are you in the big fishWhat makes this song work is its four part harmonies. Although carried along by instrumentation, it has the feel of an acappella piece and the group acquits itself nicely with harmonies that are clean and flawless.
Are you sitting in the belly of a world gone mad
Have you turned your back on His wish
His will for your life, have you made Him sad
Do you want to get out of the big fish
Listen to God and follow His plan
And you won't be part of the main dish
He'll spit you out onto dry land
Spit you out onto dry land.
