Faust, Midas, and Myself
That is the name of a song off the new Switchfoot CD Oh! Gravity. The lyrics in this song are a clever way of looking at an age old tension. What if we were offered everything and anything? Nothing left to dream and fantasize about...we could have it all. What would we finally want in the end? Materialism and its promises just subtly and continuously feed the lies of what we supposedly need. I can still be driven by material dreams which I can many times justify with some spiritual goal. What if we could finally just answer that question, once and for all...get it out of the way?
