MXTV - Steven Mcleish

I don’t know who I got to be,

As I have this mixed message that Mtv is sending me,

And the negative lyrics are starting to affect.

So it’s hard to keep my faith in check,

Because you ain’t all that, if you’re not out getting wasted.

Plastic surgery for famous faces & using women as sex objects,

And if I ain’t perfect, I’m not accepted.

They’ve packaged up a lie so good, I am impulse buying it.

The currency is my soul and I ain’t even denying it.

But hey, at least they can relate to me, because it’s relevant to me.

They are meeting my generation where they are at, you see.

I ‘m sorry, but lectures, begging for money and old school gospel tract will not cut it.

Then I came across MXTV.

My generation is hard to reach,

But they are reaching me,

changing me and impacting me.

From 1997, they have been inviting the world to Heaven.

Speaking my language,

Broadcasting over 200 countries and reaching 3.4 billion people.

Because they made church more than pews,

stain glassed windows and a steeple.

People say plant some seed, when really it’s Jesus they need.

I remember Tim spoke on ‘Love What You Do.’

When I was thinking, I really don’t love what I do.

But now I love what I do,

Bringing my generation to salvation.

Thank you MXTV.
