T Bone BurnettOne of my all time favorite songs. Sums up the struggle for letting Christ live through me rather than me trying to show Christ how it's done. 
 
It's a funny thing about humility
As soon as you know you're being humble
You're no longer humble
It's a funny thing about life
 
You've got to give up your life
To be alive
You've got to suffer to know compassion
You can't want nothing if you want satisfaction

Tonight the world looks like a different place
Tonight the moon is turning in its place
Tonight we find ourselves alone at last
Watch out for the trap door
Watch out for the trap door

It's a funny thing about love
The harder you try to be loved
The less loveable you are
It's a funny thing about pride
When you're being proud
You should be ashamed

You find only pain if you seek after pleasure
You work like a slave if you seek out the leisure
 
Provides clear explanation for why we need to discipline ourselves as God’s vessels so the traps of this world don’t claim us.
