What wisdom hangs a man up on a tree
As the only way to end my misery?
What kind of thinking made the way to heaven hard
A crooked journey down a straight and narrow path?

How can I make sense of this?
I am living in God's foolishness
All the money and the power
And the cleverness of this world
Defeated by foolishness
Foolish things shame the kings

Foolish, foolish, foolishness, foolish
Yeah, foolish, foolish, foolishness, foolish

What wisdom puts a prophet in a desert place
Nobody to hear a single word he says?
What wisdom brings reward from suffering
Where if I wanna win I have to lose everything?

How can I make sense of this?
I am living in God's foolishness
All the money and the power
And the cleverness of this world
Defeated by foolishness
Foolish things shame the kings

Foolish, foolish, foolishness, foolish
Oh, foolish, foolish, foolishness, foolish

Cool water from a rock, salvation from a Nazarene
Dethroned for the unloved, a cross in the heart of God

Yeah, how can I make sense of this?

I reasoned myself to death but I was saved by foolishness
All my big ideas made such a mess
But I'm clean now, saved from foolishness
Foolish things made a king from a fool

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah, how can I make sense of this, sense of this, yeah?

Oh, how can I make sense of this?
Oh my God, it's foolishness
Oh, how can I make sense of this?
Oh my God, it's foolishness
Foolish things made a king from a fool
