Lyrics and Music by Chris Rice

‘Cause I can sniff, I can see
And I can count up pretty high
But these faculties aren’t getting me
Any closer to the sky
But my heart of faith keeps pounding
So I know I’m doing fine,
But sometimes finding You,
Is just like trying to,
Smell the color nine.

We live in this very physical world. It is sometimes so hard to see behind the facade and see the “real world”. Reality, is that we live in the midst of a spiritual battle. Sometimes finding God in the midst of the day to day routine of this pavement and plastic world is just like trying to “smell the color 9”.

Praise God for poets!
