"Praise differently" series 6.: The incredible Wire

The cold hands of temptation.

While I listen regularly to praise and worship songs, I’m fascinated by the artists who are in the mainstream, and write songs about God and their spiritual life.

I cannot find words to describe The Wire, my all time favorite TV show. I was totally addicted to watch it. All seasons proved to be overwhelming, realistic, impactful, engaging, gripping. 

I copy here the entire lyrics (original is of Tom Waits). Pure, straightforward thoughts, in strange sync with the series' rotten beauty and perfection:

When you walk through the garden
You gotta watch your back
Well I beg your pardon
Walk the straight and narrow track
If you walk with Jesus
He's gonna save your soul

You gotta keep the devil
Way down in the hole

He's got the fire and the fury
At his command
Well you don't have to worry
If you hold on to Jesus hand
We'll all be safe from Satan
When the thunder rolls

Just gotta help me keep the devil
Way down in the hole

All the angels sing about
Jesus' mighty sword
And they'll shield you with their wings
And keep you close to the lord
Don't pay heed to temptation
For his hands are so cold

You gotta help me keep the devil
Way down in the hole
