Dreams For Sale
Out here it's live and learn,
So you can rush and earn,
A peice of this pie.
Its work today and rest tomorrow,
But it's never tomorrow.
Untill we die.
We strive to find contentment,
And so often we miss it,
When it's knocking at the door.
We're too busy to open up,
My sweet Jesus,
I love you.
And I'm trying so hard.
It's not so easy,
Down here anymore.
Everyone just treats me,
Like I'm crazy or something.
Sometimes I feel like I am,
Because no one seems to understand.
Heroes Will Be Heroes
Well, look at yourself now
Swinging that sword around
You think there's something there
But you're just fighting air
You can't do this alone
Hush, little boy, don't say a word
Don't you know Daddy's got this one?
Hey, little boy, bury your sword
Jesus already won this war
Like A Bell Tolling From Another World
Before there was time, there was the three.
Rejoicing in the fellowship of what we dubbed the trinity.
There was no friction, no sight, and no sound.
God created matter--the senses were found.
Soul and flesh were bound.
If seeing is beleiving,
How do you know what you can't show?
Beleive in what you're seeing,
In your heart's eyes, past the disguise.
Nobody Hugs A Rose
She cannot see the ocean.
For the trees that block the way.
She cannot see forever 'cause,
She can't see past today.
She's driving home so empty.
From another one night stand.
With a guy who doesnt't care,
But just wants to feel like a man.
If only falling in love was as easy making it.
Let me tell you what he did for me,
With the weight of my worries tearing my sleeve.
I cried to my father the other night, the end of all hope.
"Show me the rope, which way to go"
As I fell asleep, he took away my worries.
He picked me up put me on his shoulders.
I could see for miles.
He showed me that the mountain I'm climbing,
Is not a mountain at all,
O Shachah, where did you go?
O Shachah, where did you go?
We bow our heads and bend our knees,
In a legalistic state of mind.
But if nothing happens in wardly,
We're only wasting our time.
We won't sing what we're supposed to.
We will sing what we have to.
So Shall It Be
Stand and lift your head.
Redemption is drawing near.
The armies of heaven,
Are riding in the air.
Look into the clouds,
Every eye will see,
Christ coming down.
So shall it be.
This Is Love
Is this love
Or something to think of?
We fool ourselves for comfort,
We're swayed by every wind.
And if this isn't true love,
Then we can just pretend.
But what is love?
This is love
You say to yourself,
"Nothing will shake me"
You take hold of the world to find yourself.
You find yourself so empty.
What have you let go of and for?
What have you let go of?
You were a brother before you were a king
When you're determined what will you be?
