It's Not Enough

Dustin Kensrue, former guitarist and lead vocalist of Thrice, put out a new album called The Water & The Blood last year. The entire album can be streamed here.  On the album, there is a song called “It’s Not Enough”.  It prompted me to write this post on John 4:1-26. As you listen to this song, pay attention to the lyrics (below). If you know the Water of Life, remember what the Lord saved you from. And if you know not, and this song resonates with the very fiber of your being, I urge you: know the Lord. He is enough to quench the deepest of longings and thirsts of your soul. May He draw you to Himself.

Though all the wealth of men was mine to squander And towers of ivory rose beneath my feet Were palaces of pleasure mine to wander The sum of it would leave me incomplete

Though every soul would hold my name in honor And truest love was always by my side My praises sung by grateful sons and daughters My soul would never still be satisfied

It's not enough, it's not enough I could walk the world forever Till my shoes were filled with blood It's not enough, it's not enough

Though I could live for all to lift them higher Or spend the centuries seeking light within Though I indulged my every dark desire Exhausting every avenue of sin

It's not enough, it's not enough I could walk the world forever Till my shoes were filled with blood It's not enough, it's not enough

I could right all wrongs Or ravage everything beneath the sun It's not enough, it's not enough

To make me whole It's not enough, it never was Awake my soul It's not enough, it never was

It's not enough, it's not enough I could walk the world forever Till my shoes were filled with blood It's not enough, it's not enough

I could right all wrongs Or ravage everything beneath the sun It's not enough, it's not enough

Though all would bow to me Till I could drink my fill of fear and love It's not enough, it's not enough
