  CRUCIALITY

Inside my selfish thinking
In the middle I'm always sinking
I am so far down I can't escape
But all around the trees are falling
Too much sunshine comes in
And so I wait another day
What is brightest in my life
And what will I receive (tomorrow)
If I'm Spirit filled will I be so content (so content with sorrow)
Crucial is my mind on Christ
So much He had to (He had to die)
Buildings empty, standing tall
Precious people breathe and fall
What will you have when all is thru?
Or maybe then I save the sea
For other people after me
Instead I am never living now
Turn my eyes and to the stars
Is there life so very far?
Or better is there any very near
It is this so understand me
Christ gave so we can be free
And will I wait another day
Is this love?
Is this life?
This world's already gone
This world needs the Son
But we have so many things to do?
And so enough of flower power
Step on ways that make us sour
We cannot wait another day.
 

ALL PRETTY FOR THE T.V.

I see the wealthy guy
The world in his eyes
He need not contain no pain or shame
"And never will," I cry
And I'm a dirty word
You know I'm so absurd
If I write things off as meaningless
So I'm never heard
Stare and no care into nowhere
Round and round pounds the sound inside
We never give it up
Well, I can never live up and the box won't shut up
Ground me out without a doubt
We never give it up
So I didn't need a book to get the certain look
now
Well, I just tune it in
So this is what it means to live
And I am really free
Cause you and me are we and how
We always fit right in
So this is what it means to live
And now I'm turning blue
Without a thing to do
Cause I'm wrapped, enthralled and my brain it stalls
I can't think it thru
Give me a second chance
I'll learn your happy dance
Cause I want to be in, forget the sin
You'd think I'm in a trance
Have you got the ears to hear
And would you draw so near
Cause it's got things to say and us to change
You know you needn't fear
So make your senses soft
And never turn it off
Just step inside and join the ride
Here's our real God.
 

SHINE

What is it like when it's gone?
All the day and the night and the song
And what seems so real
Is what keeps us from the dawn
Truly I know it sometimes
I see the reasons and signs
That this world can only turn so many times
In a simple way
Though I be so wrong
Though I turn away
I know where I belong
Feelings all around in me
Do this, do that, and you'll see
That it's hard to find
Just what we need where we seek
I'll say it again that I've tried
To find the right ways on this ride
Where we're upside down
And we still will try to hide
In a simple way
Though I be so wrong
Though I turn away
I know where I belong
And the Son will shine
And the reign won't fall
And I know inside
How He loves us all
Our hands will get so that they
Can't pull us up all the day
We need to find that now we have to say.
 

DRENCHED DECENT

Can you feel this love that flows?
Do you thirst? Do you know?
And will this water fill your soul?
Well I am drenched to the bone.

And does the fountain run at your feet?
Or would you bow? Get on your knees.
Well we must sail in this sea.
Well I am drenched and taken home.

Itís taken me my life.
Heís given grace and open eyes.
And now this river carries me
Today and forevermore

Well He has said ďCome drink your fill
This is love and this is My willĒ
And so I put my hands in the stream
Well I am quenched and taken home

Now leave your cup and wonít you come on in
Letís throw this crazy life and sin
Now give yourself and do not thirst no more
Well I am drenched to the bone

Itís taken me my life.
Heís given grace and open eyes.
And now this river carries me
Today and forevermore

Itís taken me my life.
Heís given grace and open eyes.
And now this river carries me
Today and forevermore
 

WHERE WERE ALL OF YOU - Remix

hey you got a little something to say
i know you think it wrong
and you're gonna make the world okay
make us strong

where did you go?

want your right? rise up today
you, one and all
and the soul not so much to pay
feeling tall

where did you go?
where were all of you?

a man can die
a child can cry
or One crucified
for you and i

a child can die
a Man can cry
and nailed on high
to give us life

where's the rights?
where's the rights?
oh, where's the rights?

have to push 'no choice' away
ya, make it small
"have to do all what we may"
you can't fall?

where did you go?
where did you go?
 

RING TRUE

what is this?
thru strange and bad
it does not touch this joy i have
what is this?
thru future, past
and now or then only love will last

oh, these words ring true to me

love the Maker
crown the King
who gives us all and makes me sing

count my blessings 
on my knees 
so thankful for all everything

oh, these words ring true to me

my strength is dead
i hope instead
in what will be
in what we'll se
my strength is dead
i hope instead 
on every word He's said

this is real
and this is good
to trust in truth now as i should

give the glory 
give the pain
and let the fall build me again

oh, these words ring true to me
oh, these words ring true to me

my strength is dead
i hope instead
in what will be
in what we'll see
my strength is dead
i hope instead 
on every word He's said

who gives us all
(who gives us all)
and makes me sing
so thankful for 
(so thankful for) all everything

my strength is dead
i hope instead
in what will be
in what we'll see
my strength is dead
i hope instead 
on every word He's said

who gives us all
(who gives us all)
and makes me sing
so thankful for 
(so thankful for) all everything
 

BLISS IS Ė Mellow Version

raised to be rich
trip or be tripped
give to get, live to get
throw a fit
give to get, live to get
what is it?

you're gonna have to wait
my family can't relate
on the floor, out the door
clean the slate
on the floor, out the door
in this hate

and this is how
i'll let it go
Savior save me 
from what i know
(oh, what do i know?)

pushed ahead in this
society angry bliss
disregard life is hard
give a kiss
disregard life is hard
cut my wrist

did i never care?
silence at the dinner chair
hush up now, hear us now
sit and stare
hush up now, hear us now
was it fair?

and this is how
i'll let it go
Savior save me 
from what i know
(save me from what i know)
 

SICKLY

is it sunny?
or is it raining out today?
is it calm outside?
or is the wind all on your face?
did the storm subside?
did it leave without a trace?

are you well?
or have you never been so sickly?
are you stupid?
or have you never been so funny?

will, i don't know, but i think i'm gonna 
scream
well, i don't know, but i think i'm going 
crazy

are you empty?
or are you all up full of money?
is your head clear?
or is it busy, falling, snowing?
are you sad?
or have you never been so happy?

well, i don't know, but i think i'm gonna 
scream
well, i don't know, but i think i'm going 
crazy
well, i don't know, but i think i'm 
on my knees
well, i don't know, but i think i 
gotta pray
 

MY WORLD FALLS DOWN

oh, how my world falls down
and how i sink at the sound
but how i won't shut up

i stay(though my pain it swells)
i wait (as if all is well)
i faint (cause i've choked to tell)

i've got my sin and i've got my lie
am i on my face? got to know who am i
i'm a stupid man and my eyes are dry

oh, how my world falls down
and how i sink at the sound
but now i won't shut up

insane. what say me?
my God, get me free
insane. what say me?
my God, get me free

i stay(though how dumb i be)
i wait(as He waits for me)
i faint(cause it's so heavy)

will i lift my hands and die inside?
i suffocate when i hold my life
will we throw this out? ya, i need Christ

insane. what say me?
my God, get me free
insane. what say me?
my God, get me free

oh, how my world falls down
and how i sink at the sound
and still i won't shut up
 

FOR THE LOVE OF MY COUNTRY

for the love of this country, hey
one man pinned up and traded away
for the love of the country, hey
He is...

for the love of this country, man
how He laid down to love His land
for the love of this country, man
He is all

but what can i say?
(oh)
run and hide?
(no)
how can i be?
(low)

do you see this place?
(gone away, gone away, gone away)
do you see this race?
(gone away, gone away, gone away)

for the love of this country, see
how we shake our fists angrily
for the love of this country, see
we are so

but what can i say
(oh)
run and hide
(no)
how can i be
(low)

do you see this place?
(gone away, gone away, gone away)
do you see this race?
(gone away, gone away, gone away)

for the love of this country, hey
would i live so to fade away?
for the love of this country, hey
would i fall?
 

DIGGING DEEP

so now hold your breath
and set the stage
prepare your self for the cynic's rage
is it a question still of who is man?
or how they feel with what i am

but digging deep i found a way
what more do i need to say

gone thru life and death 
and what remains
if any blemish hang your head in shame
like a fever that just keeps you down
would you simply let it stay around?

'digging deep' i guess i say
is more pridefulness of that day
in truth i know that it is clear
i was distant, God is near

in the goodness and strife
found an empty wanting life
though so long made no sound
with tears i bowed myself down

won't you greet this man 
and hear his words
maybe an open ear would make him stir
could a closed heart have saved a man?

digging deep i guess i say
is more pridefulness of that day
in truth i know that it is clear
i was distant, God is near
so now hold your breath and set the stage
prepare yourself for the cynics rage
is it a question still of who is man?
or how they feel and what i am
 

RECEIVE

tell the jury
tell the judge
tell the world
mom and dad
you are sad
check your name
check your head
I've heard more joy 
from some - someone dead

are you He?
did you die on a tree
and I can't help 
it makes me think
made of dirt
full of greed
like a theif 
making life in robbery
mae a crown
for the pain
and it falls on your mind 
like so much rain

receive

too close
too far 
too insane

receive
 

CHANCE FOR THE CHANCERS - Remix

everything's gonna be okay
He's gonna wipe those fears away
and before the night is thru
this is all going to make sense to you

but you won't hear these words
no you don't have the time
that would be a crime

right now, right away
before it gets to cold
and I know how it kills 
and I know how it makes you ill

but you won't hear these words
no you don't have the time
that would be a crime

everything's gonna be okay
He's gonna wipe those fears away
and before the night is thru
this is all going to make sense
 

WHAT IF UNCLE BEN HAD LIVED?

falling down the stairs
climb into the sea
the world is on it's hands
then it's on it's feet
touch the silent man
who cares where he goes
stand high above his back
like the ground beneath your toes

the breeze is to much for me - anymore
 (I've seen this in people who are weak)
and if I push the blade in deep
will it break inside of me
in me, in me...

reaching for a star
with my eyes dead on the floor
racing all the time
my soul can't take much more
touch the silent man
who makes himself so low

will I spit on him again
and turn myself away
what more will it take

falling down the stairs
climb into the sea
the world is on it's hands
then it's on it's feet
touch the silent man 
who makes himeself so low
make your self as small
just He and I and all
 

HELLO SUNNY WEATHER

She shook her head and turned away
she said she will not hear my voice today
"you are still asleep and still the same,
same as the day you said you'd change."

and with my thoughts she let me stand
with words that scared my face and hands
maybe when I let my rocket land
she will see the boy inside the man

break this heart as cold as stone
you got to, got to now
then hello sunny weather
hello sunny weather
breath so deep this love of Christ
I got to, got to now
then hello sunny weather
hello, hello

lovliness it has a name
like John and Jill and Bill and Charlemagne
and I guess my years of acting sane
were spent looking for the Saviours face

I know I've said this all before 
but I'm sure I mean it now all the more...
 

CLOSING DOWN

goonight
sleep tight
the sun is set
and day is night
just you rest
it's all alright

but it's the same
day to day
why can't I 
sleep this away 

a headache 
 (keeps me awake)
my eyes are red
 (from trusting too much in me)
I've got to pray
 (I've got to give this up)
but will He hear me now?

goodnight
sleep tight
I wish I were 
I wish I might

but it's the same
day to day
and I can't 
sleep this way

a heartache
 (keeps me awake)
is my brain dead?
 (from trusting too much in me)
I have to say
 (I've got to give this up)
He said He'd hear me now
