Adam & Eve (June/July '08) (Chorus:) Call me (D) naive, but (G) I still be(A)lieve in (G) Adam & (D) Eve (As4) Call me in(D)sane but I think when it rained just Noah's family remained Call me a fool, but I think it's cool that Jesus Christ's gonna rule Maybe I'm gone for (G) writing this (A) song, but I will sing on Born & raised in a (D) country where people just (A) "know" that they descended from (G) monkeys Can be just a bit squeezy when they get into teasing folks who believe in Jesus And it's not like they're blissful, thinking they're just fistfuls of primordial soup that one day crawled out on land Overly glorified mutants, specialized in disputing things they don't understand (Ch.) If you just keep repeating the same old lie, folks won't think that you're cheatin' Cause they'd never assert you'd have such a nerve, instead of fearing a beatin' And if this worked before, they figure there must be more people to pull some wool all over their eyes And what they call education in our civilized nations doesn't amount to much more than just a big pack of lies So, (Ch. 2x)
A FURIOUS VOICE FOR THE TRUTH CHORUS: Let me (Em) do only (C) Your will Let me (G) go (D) where You choose Let (Am)me be yours, yours (B/G)only: a (C)furious (D)voice for the (Em) truth here in(C)side me I’ve got (G)nothing to (D) loose let your (Am)love guide & (B/G)make me a (C)furious (D)voice for the Truth!

Again And You'll be all I needed to be finally completed Flow through me, make me wholly Yours and then just use me for whatever I am worth Go on, undo me, and piece me back together again And then take me to the water, fellow sons and fellow daughters Take me way beyond any borders of what they call law and order Make me rise up to be slaughtered if that's what You will And then raise me to Your harbor let my ship sail ever farther and embrace me like the father raced to kiss his long missing prodigal son and then let your greatest gift to me be not to let me part from You again

I've said this before, but I've just got no clue Many are called but the chosen are few The few who know nothing else matters but You So, come & let Your lovelight shine on me & make Your crazy love mine Jesus, all I want is You All I want, all I want is You All I want, all I want is You So, come & let Your lovelight shine on me & make Your crazy love mine Jesus, all I want is You All I want, all I want is You All I want, all I want is You

Another Golden Time
I’m sittin’ in this dark room & I’m Thinkin` of the latest lies that I’ve Heard on the t-box, boy, this time they knocked by socks off & I`m wonderin’ will this ever stop?, oh, will You take us back to the top, oh Lord to the way it used to be in times , in times so long gone by & I`m rememberin’ oh so clearly in my aging youthful mind desiring so sincerely that one day we all may find another golden time A time that didn’t feel so hard, a time to open up our hearts A time when people wouldn’t live a lie or live for money, do or die A time foretold so clearly in the book of ancient rhymes & if we read between the lines I know we`re gonna find another golden time.
Times all I dreamed of was finding Just a small trace of human touch Voices around would remind me I always expect to much Where did those sweet times go That you & I used to know Where did all our minds go That` s one thing God only knows (Chorus:) But I can`t wait in silence anymore I run from my island to your door Now those times left behind me Are lessons learned no more And I think I may find me A much brighter way to go No more sleepy dreamin` Of what is & could not be No more smoke and steamin` Well, that`s, at least no more for me (Chorus) You gave me faith when all was lost You taught my eyes to see Just bein` next to you`s the perfect thing for me (Chorus)

As Brands From The Burning You know He has changed my life, why don't you let Him change yours, too? You know, He has saved my life (soul), why don't you let Him save you, too? We were saved just as brands from the burning when there was no hope left in sight Won't You keep my heart from yearning, Jesus, I need You tonight (Ch.) All through my life I'd been searching, seeking a reason to live Till one day I found the answer in Jesus, He taught me to love & to give (Ch.) You're no fool to give a life you can't keep for a love that you just cannot lose Come on, all you've got to do is receive, so, tell me, which side will you choose (2nd Ch.:) He's inside my heart, why don't you open your heart, too? You know, He's the way, the truth & the life you're searching, too (Ch.)
Asking You (May 29, 2009)
Why? - I'm asking you why must you always defy the One Who came to die for you, the One Who won't lie? Please, tell me why - why all the force and the strain the hunger and pain, innumerable faces, tears falling like rain? I'm asking you why all the killing and hate as if it was our fate to keep running away from love until it's too late? Just tell me why, I'm asking you why is it so hard to brak down this despicable wall of abominable pride? Why is it too hard to say that you keep looking for answers, solutions, results you won't accept anyway? I'm asking you why, if you're so God-damn smart, you keep breaking God's heart by rejecting His love, defying Him all the way? Just tell me why, before I'm gonna go, is your one single answer to the most precious chance you'll ever get always "no"? I'm asking you why, just tell me why are you so in love with death that you must strangle love's breath before it can come to life?
(Am) Here (B/G) we (C) are, (F) we've come this (C) far (F) crossing that (C) bridge to the (Am) stars and Here we stand daring to defy (F) those who will (C) say that we (G) can't and here we walk, the few who believe that there's more to do than just talk and here we live, ready to die for the truth we must give (Chorus:) Ready to (C) fight an(G)other (F)day It's (G) time to shake off that (C) old, back-(G)breaking (F) weight Stop paying the price that He already paid No use hanging on this way Here He comes, here comes the Son the Son and the Father are One and here we run, run to His arms we have only just begun and here we sing, we sing our song cause we belong, let it ring and here we stand because we can do no other than here to stand (Ch.) (G) Here (F) we (C) are, we've (G) come this (F) far Here we stand because we can do no other Here we sing, we sing our song cause we belong Here He comes, here comes the Son We're all gonna be as one, as one, as one We're all gonna be as one when He comes We're all gonna be as one
Babylon the Great (July 31 2008) Babylon the Great is gonna meet her fate In one hour of one day she will be blown away Because she has made drunk with the wine of her fornication all the peoples of this earth, of every tongue and nation And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus in her was found the blood of prophets and all that were killed on the earth Babylon the Great is going to have to pay for her war-mongering, whoremongering, false & evil ways As much as she has glorified herself & lived deliciously So much torment & pain give her who sits there like a queen For the merchants of the earth have grown rich through her delicacies So come out of her, for God remembered her iniquities Babylon the Great is waking up too late therefore shall her pagues: death, famine and lament, come in one day So pay her back double portion of the cup she gave to you So rejoice over her, heaven & saints, for the Lord, the Judge, is true For in one hour such great riches they shall be no more & the voice of harpers & pipers shall be heard in thee no more And no craftsman of whatever craft he be shall be found no more in thee And the voice of the bride and the Bridegroom shall be heard no more in thee For by your sorceries were all nations deceived Babylon the Great is fallen - is fallen, in one hour is your judgment come Babylon the Great is fallen - is fallen, come and see what she has become Babylon the Great is fallen - is fallen, in one hour is your judgment come Babylon the Great is fallen - is fallen, come & weep over what she's done

As I walk the pavement of these city streets my eyes turn from those buildings to the people I meet. Conversation here won't lead very far, God, it almost seems to me as if they've all got concrete hearts.
Concrete hearted people never show what they feel, eyes as cold as diamonds, minds made of stainless steel, never tell on whose side they are, no, no, they won't show their loneliness deep in their concrete hearts.
Concrete hearts are as hard as the streets on which they walk, never mean a single thing when they talk, just surround themselves with concrete walls. Concrete hearts would rather stop beating than be caught shedding tears, always pretend they never once knew a fear, no, not even in a million years, sad lonely concrete hearts.
Talking to someone that I thought I once knew showing some emotion 's one thing she just won't do, leave me sittin' here in the bar, oh, but girl, tell me, who's ever been missing a concrete heart?
I'm not gonna let you make a fool of myself, just because you look as pretty as a vase on some shelf,
play with me but don't go too far, no I'll never let myself fall for you and your concrete heart.
Concrete hearts are as hard as the streets on which they walk, never mean a single thing when they talk, just surround themselves with concrete walls. Concrete hearts would rather stop beating than be caught shedding tears, always pretend they never once knew a fear, no, not even in a million years, sad lonely concrete hearts, cold lonely concrete hearts, sad lonely concrete hearts.
Round & round & round, keep spinning Without ever falling down, this old ball they`re now Bringing to its knees It’s such a catastrophe, guess it`s the way it has to be We burn the forest ‘cause we can`t see the trees Christ, this seems much too hard to bear I look for you but I can`t find you there (Chorus:) And I would fly into the breeze But you prefer me on my knees This life is such a strange disease So, why won’t You cure me, please That’s alright I was just kidding Cause I’ve had good times, I admit it That I cannot pretend were just a dream But when this thing, reality comes creepin`, Catchin’ up with me that silver lining’s further than it seemed Love has left a lonely, vacant chair I look for You but still don’t find You there
Depending On You (April 5 & 6, 2008)
(Intro: G-F#/Dsus2-Em-C 2x) Here I (G) stand by Your (F#/Dsus2) grace Bringing (Em) nothing but a (Em/D) heart full of (C) praise (D) I have tried for too long On my own, but I just wasn’t that (C) strong And as (C) I discard from my life all I (B/G) find less than true I trade (Am7) (in) those substitutes for the re(Em)solve that I’ll (Dsus4) be Depending on (G) You (intro) Let it rain down on me Let the water of Your Word wash me clean I’m afraid what I seemed & I thought to be was not really me And as You discard from my life all that’s much less than true Teach me one skill that will serve me when all other fall through: Depending on You (half intro) (Chorus:) De(C)pending on You I find (B/G) new strength within for things that (Am7) on my own I just couldn’t (G) do (D) Depending on You I am protected and know That there is no battle I could ever (Dsus4) lose Here I (G) stand by Your (F#/Dsus2) grace Bringing (Em) nothing but a (Em/D) heart full of (C) praise (D) I have tried for too long On my own, but I just wasn’t that (C) strong And as You discard from my life all that’s much less than true Teach me one skill that will serve me when all other fall through: Depending on You (Chorus)
DESIRE (Chorus:) Hold me close, don’t let me get singed by the fire Hold me tight, don’t let me lead myself astray Keep me close, don’t let me drown in my desire Keep me near, don’t let my heart wander away Jesus, You know me better than I know myself I put on a show, pretend to be somebody else Haven’t we all believed those lies we tell ourselves Help me to be the one You want & no one else (Ch.) Beautiful daydreams, wishing the world were another place Imagining perfect scenes & all flaws gone without a trace But life cannot all be fun & bliss without hard times to face The greater the darkness & sin, the more the light shines with radical grace (Ch.)
Desnudo Puedes decirme tu quien yo soy? De donde vengo y a donde voy? Puedes decirme tu que hago aqui? Si hay una razon de existir para mi? No aguanto mas sólo sobrevivir Preciso nuevos mundos pa descubrir Debo saber a donde debo ir Sin que me digan como me tengo que vestir (Ch.:) Desnudo llegué a éste mundo y desnudo me iré Lo unico que cuenta es el segundo y vivir cada uno antes de que se fué Llamando al cielo, habla tierra aquí Que veo aca es un susto para mi Y lo que escucho son mentiras y cuentos sin fin Ché, Dios, no puede ser que sigan siempre asi Hay un payazo en la téle jugando rey Que dice sus palabras desde hoy son ley Mas yo no quiero mas que paz, mañana y hoy Y sin verdad, dispuesto a vivir no estoy
Gee, this treadmill’s not for me Free’s what I was meant to be Bono says, “What can we do To free the world from poverty?” I would ask, “what can we do To free the rich from their misery?” Cast your jewels into the river, Watch them sparkle, watch them glitter In colors you have never seen Aaah, stop making such a fuss! Less is sometimes more, More sometimes less Jesus didn’t have a church, a house, no place to lay his head So why do we all think We need a golden king size feather bed? Go on, build your barns & make them bigger for your 15-digit figures you must leave here when you’re gone Gone. Thanks, Bill Gates, for what you’ve done! You could even make a tiny contribution For this song! I don’t have to envy you As I’m sure you don’t envy me After all, we’re all in the same boat, Big Brother, you & me Except I won’t have to stoop as low To get back to reality The reality that happiness Is merely the ability To enjoy things that money just won’t buy A chirping bird, a sunny sky, To see the donut, not the hole
1) When you sheer collapse under the weight that’s on your back & you’re feelin’ trapped & like you’re runnin’ outta luck close your eyes, call on Me & you`ll be alright 2) When you’re feelin` strong, that’s not when I got through to you Please, don’t get me wrong, I want you to enjoy life like I do It’s true, I’ve been with you all along I’m your song 3) Please, bear with me, darling, just like I will bear with you Are we just getting started or are we almost through? Wrong or right? - Please, not tonight! there`s gotta be something so much better to do (Chorus:) Please, tell me you remember (how I kept you warm at night) (Do you?) Tell me, can you remember (that I love you, wrong or right) (Do you?) Do you ever remember, do you? (Tell me, do you remember, do you?) 4) Do you want me to stop? Should I just pack my things & go But you don`t wanna talk, so there`s some things I`ll never know Should I just keep on gessin` what`s wrong with you? I just think there should be something better to do (2 fr.) (Chorus 2x)
ENEMIES OF TRUTH When (Bm7) you’ve declared war on the (En7) enemies of truth You’ll find the ride rough, turbulent and (Bm7) anything but smooth You’ll face one huge, tough Goliath, stout & (Em7) armed to his last tooth But life ain’t (Cmaj7) life until you’ve declared (G) war (As2) on the enemies of (Bm7) truth When you’ve declared war on the enemies of love You’ll walk a rough trail that you won’t make with no help from above They’ll try to tear you down, destroy you, make you scream “I’ve had enough” But life ain’t life until you’ve declared war on the enemies of love (Chorus:) (Em) Bring truth and love, instead of (Cmaj7) hatred and their (Bm7) lies Replace bondage with freedom, open up their blinded eyes Shatter illusions & expose the foe’s disguise And you’ll see (Cmaj7) God’s new world (Em7) finally a(Bm7)rise When you’ve declared war on the enemies of peace You’ll find the first hill to tackle’s to make your own hatred cease For only then will God’s full awesome power be released Life ain’t life until you’ve declared war on the enemies of peace When you’ve declared war on the enemies of life You’ll know that life’s more than what they take with bullets or with knives You’ll face the dawn when your last hour on earth will have arrived And you’ll go on as the victor over all of the enemies of life (Chorus) (First verse) …on the enemies of truth (3x)
The Enneagram Rap (by Dave Mendoza) I'm ONE - having fun's not what life's about for me I need perfection, every section of my life is squeaky clean Like St.Paul & Martin Luther at the core I'm a reformer I'm a teacher, preacher, innovative pioneer & explorer I'm a TWO, and for me, nothing matters quite like you I need someone in my life to dedicate my passion to Helping others - sisters, brothers, is what I'll most gladly do Because all you need is love & to be loved & needed, too I'm a THREE, I'm a THREE, and a winner I will be nothing less than success is gonna cut the cake for me I don't have much time for failures nor for losers or for wailers I won't stop, close the shop, before I have reached the top (Chorus:) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 distinguished kinds of human personalities, made in God's design 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 - if you can figure out yours I'll tell you mine I'm a FOUR, and what's more, I am different, that's the score to be anything but ordinary's what I'm striving for to stick out from all the others, I will dress in different colors because beauty is what's gonna save the world, & not your dollars I'm a FIVE and I jive with those who let me live my life In the castle that's my home I prefer to be alone Unless you will let me mind my business and will mind your own To collecting things and hoarding knowledge I am rather prone I'm a SIX, just a SIX - your old average people mix I will play along the game as long as by the rules you stick You don't really need to praise me or tell me that I'm amazing 'cause I fear that's just a game you play to rig things up your way (Chorus) I'm a SEVEN, and to me, life is pretty close to heaven I enjoy myself, & I would like to keep it up, so never let me in on all the ugly things out there, cause that's not clever Just don't worry and be happy & don't spoil the party, ever! I'm an EIGHT, I'm the boss & give you hell if you're too late I will even pick a fight with you, if that is what it takes If you're weak I will protect you, if you're strong I will respect you But provokoing me is something you might easily regret I'm a NINE, and I'm fine, even if I lag behind I don't need to be the greatest, I prefer to just be kind Ambition, competition & endeavor's not my mission I'd prefer to bring you peace & like to help you catch that vision (Chorus 2x) http://www.davemendoza.de/songs/other%20projects/misc/Enneagram%20Rap.mp3
Europe Is Dying And the man who stood there at the end of the line, he was cryin` He said, Give me a penny, son, can`t you see Europe is dyin` & I wished I hadn`t understood a single word he said & I wished it hadn`t been as if he`d looked inside my head So, little by little I ford my way up through the river & the power that`s mine is the power of one who`s forgiven & I wished I had some better news than what I just now read & I wished I hadn`t understood a single word the newsman said Yeah, I wished that I was wrong or even lyin` But seems like Europe is dying So I fly `cross the ocean & I find another man cryin` He says `gimme a cent, son, America, America is dyin` (Chorus 1+) & I wish we`d use a little more of what`s inside our heads, but, son, America`s dyin` Cause it`s not always the stronger one who`s always in the right & your money`s not a guarantee that you`ll win every fight God I wished that I was wrong or ... but your money is dyin`

Farewell Mr. President
This is a song for you, though it's a song you'll never hear The man who's wrecked & ruled "the greatest nation in the world" for 8 long years Oblivious to the facts, oblivious to how it feels to have lost a son in Iraq for some greedy, old men's petrol deals I wonder who'll wipe off that grin from your mischievous monkey face You're wading knee-deep in your sins, the blood of thousands on your hands Of all the hypocrites I've seen you were the one that takes the cake Farewell, Mr. President! You sure fulfilled your daddy's dreams: that New World Order's rolling in Cause, after all, what have you been than a mere puppet to their schemes? And best of all, you've done it all in the Name of the One you hate Cause you were taught not to repeat the one mistake your daddy made The hypocrites fell for you the way that brand of people do But me, I see right through your wicked smirk, oh, yes, I do Farewell, Mr. President! So now you're leaving with a bang, the way that big-shot people do to leave another man to hang in the place you have left him to I suppose history will show what you did, who you were for real Perhaps our grandchildren will know what all you schemers now conceal But in a long, black list of fools, I think you'll be and always will the most pathetic one of all to me Farewell, Mr. President! War is your game, war has been your creed Though it's sure as hell not you who fight, no you let other people bleed The wind you have sown, the storm you will reap So, come on get down off your thrown, make room for yet another creep "We won't get fooled again," is that what we really believed? But then we'll believe anything, anything - you screwed us over in our sleep Farewell, Mr. President! Sure had us fooled again Farewell, Mr. President! Don't come around again

Fire, Water, Air And Earth
Five billion souls under one sun learning to live in peace on one, one speck of dust we call our planet. Five billion different worlds in one learning to get along, each one so very different from the other. So many different shades in one, so many different traits yet one, only one human race, one Father.
Fire, water, air and earth and what's inbetween, fire, water, air and earth and anything that is seen, learning to live with each other.
From a distance the stars all look the same but if we get close the aspects change: they all vary in purpose, size and colour. Like Venus, Mercury and Mars, our personal characters all are as manyfold as the constellations.
Fire, water, air and earth and what's inbetween, fire, water, air and earth and anything that is seen, learning to live with each other.
Just go walking down your street, so many different types you meet, wouldn't you be bored if we were all the same? One is proud, the other shy, some a little dumb, the other sly like a snake that's waiting for it's chance to bite. Some walk high and some walk low, one goes fast the other slow,
we all can learn a little something as we go. Some love music, some play ball, some can't stand that stuff at all, they'd rather work all day just making sure the money rolls. Some as quiet as a lamb some are violent, some are tame, we all need each other, no two folks are just the same. Red, brown, yellow, black or white, the one thing not to do is fight, but we must learn to live eternally in harmony. That's what we're all here for, we have to open the door, and take a step to love each other.
Fire, water, air and earth and what's inbetween, fire, water, air and earth and anything that is seen, learning to live with each other.
First Day (D) Good morning, God's child it’s (A) time to rise, yeah, (Em) this is the first day of the (G) rest of your (A) life What your (D) hand finds to do, do it (A) with all your might Cause (Em) this is the first day - (G) of the (A) rest of your (D) life (A-Em-G-A-) Good morning, God's child, rise & shine there's no time to lose, no time to murmur or whine the path of victory is yours, it’s yours to choose So, good morning, God's child; it's time to rise & shine Pick your feet up & leave your burdens behind Yeah, this is the journey to the rest of your life Though a steep path ahead & many hurdles you’ll find Child, this is the first day… Do what you can but don’t push too hard No, don’t worry & let go & let God finish all of the good in your life that He started just take the first step on the rest of your march
FOCUS Every day comes with a sheer array of Shiny things designed to make me go astray Countless temptations and distractions coming my way Must have this & “Lord, I still need that” And then I’m craving this, though I’m already fat & there’s this one thing missing for my happiness Until You call me to look up And You make all this madness stop (Chorus:) I focus on You & the more that I do The more I realize that nothin else In this whole world could ever really satsisfy I focus on You & the more that I do The more it becomes clear that all my wants, selfish addictions and desires disappear when I focus on You The web, the movies & computer games Along with buzzy drinks can sometimes blur our aim Make us forget that we are fighting a war Endless pleasure trips and lethargy can come across like Good & dear old friends to me until I can’t remember What I’m fighting for Lord, take control & lift me up And please make all this madness stop (Chorus) (2nd chorus:) When I focus on you I see nothing is true Except You and Your Cause That matters more than any other thing that I could ever do I focus on You and the more that I do Everything else fades away like a long & sad day With nothing to say until You came my way I focus on You (2x) I fix my mind, I keep my eyes pinned straight on You I’m tuning in, I won’t let go, You’re all I think, You’re all I know Make all this madness fade away There’s nothing else that’s left to say Cause without You it all won’t matter anyway I focus on You Keep me focused on You I focus on You
Follow God (Chorus:) For God’s sake, follow God ‘cause we’re just gonna have to trust Him, it has come to that For God’s sake, you’ve gotta see God No use in tryin’ to figure it all out in your own head That’s right, you heard what I said: You gotta see God, for God’s sake, follow God! For God’s sake, follow God ‘cause in the end we’re gonna find out we’re not all that smart It’s true, you gotta see God His signs are everywhere to see for open minds and hearts You wanna get it right from the start? You gotta see God, for God’s sake, follow God! (1st verse:) What’s the first thing you should do when you get stuck? Pray! – You gotta see God! Who do you turn to when it seems like you just ran out of luck? For God’s sake, follow God! Who’s the only One Who really knows what’s up? Hey, you gotta see God! (Chorus) For our mission, blind ambition’s not quite what it takes No way! You gotta see God! Calculations and equations till your head starts to ache? Uh-uh! Follow God! Mystifying speculation, mind-rotations till late? I’d say, you gotta see God! (Chorus) (rep. last line)
Follow Me ( Till The End Of The World ) Follow me where I go, wherever He may lead us now 'cause, love, don't you know that there's a new freedom that's just waiting for you, waiting to take you away, hey ... Yes, if you want to be free, just take my hand & follow me where I go, through fire & rain, love, through water & snow & don't you look back! But will you stay by my side through winter & summer, love, through flood & thru' tide & till the end of the world, babe we've got nothin' to hide No, no, no, no no we've got nothin' to hide ,no, no, no, no Oh, if you're longing for joy, for someone to love you & to care when you cry, why don't you break out & leave those old chains behind & don't you look back Oh, if you search for the truth, make up your mind now, babe which side will you choose & come follow me Girl, we've got nothin' to lose, no, no, no, no, No, we've got nothin' to lose ...
Forevermore I hear them say the words we read don't really mean quite what they say I hear them pray as if they don't expect an answer anyway I hear them say that God could not have made the world in 7 days I hear them justify themselves by saying "loving doesn't pay." I see them endlessly continuing their selfish, rotten game I see them point their crooked finger and yet never take the blame Why do they have to keep on killing, fighting, hurting, in His name? I cannot see how they'll escape from everlasting grief, contempt and shame Why do they have to keep on taking His most holy name in vain? Why won't they ever make attempts to put an end to all this pain? Why are they lying to themselves and to each other for mere gain? Why can't we be content with what we have, but murmur and complain? How can we say that we know better if our works don't show the same? Now is the day to break the fetters, strengthen the things that will remain "Thou shalt not kill" was hewn in letters that we'd better read again How can we hope He'll come & get us before tribulation reigns? I cannot see, I cannot hear, I cannot speak, I'm powerless I only feel and mourn and pray and await that ancient, promised bliss When He that was to come will come again and restore righteousness And every nation on this earth will once again call itself blessed Then will that mountain fill the earth, nothing will hurt kill or destroy New life will be born from the ashes, sorrow will turn into joy His name and truth will then be known by each man, woman, girl and boy No longer will the tempter and his legions pester and annoy I don't know when or how but I know one thing is for sure That day will come when all the nations will be cured The project "man" will be renewed, revamped and totally restored The rightful Heir and true King, Jesus Christ will reign forevermore Jesus Christ will reign forevermore Jesus Christ will reign forevermore Jesus Christ will reign forevermore

Forward, march! – This is your second chance Forward, march! – Family, this is your dance Forward, march! – It may be their last chance You’ve been My chosen ones for nearly 40 years You’re the work of My hands, My blood, My sweat & My tears Out of America, to the ends of the earth I’ve called you out & now again I send you forth (Chorus) On February 18, 2008 I’ll send My signal shot The world must no longer wait I’m calling you to march, move forward & advance Take the offensive – this is your chance (Chorus) You can do what’s been unheard of, do what’s never been seen You will lead My Endtime Army as you follow your queen You will reap the mighty harvest, you will bring in My sheep You will usher in My Kingdom, wake’em up from their sleep (Chorus 3-4 times)
Locked up in an iron cell, my life was dark and vain, a hollow shell until you came in and you gave new life to me. Childhood memories were sad and gloomie as can be, there was no love for an unimportant little boy like me.
When you came along it was like someone finally turned the light on inside my dark room and made me see. When the morning dawns I know that you will come and take me home and set me free.
In the early morn' I'll spread my wings and I will soar into the sky and fly so free.
I was just a prisoner till the day you came along, trapped inside my cage just like a bird without a song, hardly anyone could understand what it's to be finally free, free.
Locked up in an iron cell, my life was dark and vain, a hollow shell until you came in and you gave new life to me, oh my past was hell, compared to what's become, you broke the spell and set me free -- free -- free!
Free As the Wind I go wherever I want to go where I'm coming from you don't know nor can you tell where it is I'm venturing I'm free – free as the wind free, free, free, free, free as the wind I blow wherever I want to blow you hear my song but you still don't know where it is my road ends or begins I'm free – free as the wind free, free, free, free, free as the wind I do whatever He bids me do you notice me but you don't have a clue where it is my Lord is beckoning I'm free – free as the wind free, free, free, free, free as the wind (Bridge:) So is anyone born of spirit and wind so is every son of the King of kings (First verse, chorus twice)

Give Me Truth
(Ch..:) Oh, give me truth, whatever you give me Don’t need to paint it nice for me Cause what’s the use, if I can't believe in it I’ve heard enough lies in my day I'm not the kind who choose to blindly grope through a dark world, Where artificial lighting sets deluded minds awhirl Don't tell me lies, no alibis, no sweet, enticing words I'd rather have it straight, the facts - even if it hurts (Ch.) I must confess, I don’t like darkness all as much as light But careful with those coloured spotlights, when they get too bright To really see what’s going on, we need the light of truth And that sometimes reveals some things you won’t hear in the news (Ch.) I do appreciate you efforts to be friendly & polite The most politically correct, smart diplomat in sight But what I need is honesty to make it through my day It’s not the smoothness of your words that counts with me, no way (Ch.) So,…
God Needs You (capo 3rd) Don't you (C) sometimes feel the need to (G) prove that you can (Am) make (F) it in this (C) lost & lonely (G) world, all on your (Dm7) own? (F) And then sometimes you might even try to fake it and pretend that all you need is brains & brawn But when the (Am) storms of life tear (G) down your house & (Dm7) shake it (F) (Am) wouldn't it be nice to (G) know you're not a(F)lone? You don't (Am) have to be a (G) self-made fool you don't (Dm7) need to show off all (F) you can do there's (Am) really no point that you've (G) got to prove, brother (F) I've got news for (G) you: (C) God (G) needs (Am) you (F) to (C) do what you a(G)lone were meant to (Dm7) do (F) to play that part in His big plan that He knows no one else but you can, to love Him and to know you need Him, too So, when it all comes down to it, remember you're worth, every bit because (Am) God (G) needs (C) you Do you sometimes feel like everybody's watching? And just waiting for the moment you will fall? But then you're not the only one nobody's touching and there's many who feel no one cares at all If you realize there's many others searching Why not turn around & tune in to their call? It's time to take note you're not alone out there there are hungry souls like you everywhere they're just waiting for you to break out & share & to show them someone cares (Ch.) There's a (D) mighty harvest (A) out there no one's (Bm) reaping (G) there's a (D) big job waiting (A) no one wants to (Em) do (G) And I sometimes think that I can hear Him weeping 'cause the ones who care for others are so few So the (Bm) next time that old (A) loneliness comes (Em) creeping (G) Just be(Bm)lieve with all your (A) heart that this is (G) true: (Ch.)
God of Love
(D) You say (C9) can’t believe in a (G/a) God of love when there’s (Em7/f#) so much that (A7sus4) just won’t make (D) sense to you How can He be a God of love when there’s so much that’s bad & good things so few? How naív to believe all will turn out good Is this just wishful thinking or true? And you tell me that life has been hell for you Well, life has been hell for me, too But there’s one difference between our points of view And I think that’s what each of us choose You say, “What do I gain from believing this?” While I’d say, “What have you got to lose?” Just a load full of pride & a heart of blues You ask me, I’d say, that’s quite a deal: Just forget how much life has been hell for you Sister, I know quite well how that feels You see, faith is something you can’t touch or see Yet it can take you beyond any star It’s a torch light that leads some place you’ll be free & at home no matter where you are It’s a simple as turning a light switch on Illuminating a dark room & though life may have been quite some hell for you I’m offering Heaven to you Do you believe it? Will you receive it? Can you hear Jesus? He’s standing right at your door & just waiting for You to whisper the words, “Come on in!” Do you believe Him? Will you receive Him? He’s standing right at your door & just waiting for you Come on, let Him in! Do you believe it? Will you receive Him? Just say, “Dear Jesus, come into my heart, take my sin! I want to believe it! I want to receive you! Help me & save me, Come in!”
God's Creation (Chorus:) (G)When will the beauty of (C)God's creation find (D) admiration, ap(G)preciation of the inhabitants (C)of the nations Oh, (D) when will they honor (G) God? When will the church of God have the nerve to give Him the credit that He deserves When will they stop swallowing the devil's lies & his sweet sugar-coated pill? (C) He didn't need ten (D) billion years (C) to make this pretty (D) world appear (C) Just like Jesus didn't (D) need a year to (Em) heal the leprous (C) man but some people are (D) so afraid (C) to admit that he (D) could have made (C)The whole universe (D) in 6 days, that's too much (Em) for them to compre(C) (D) hend (Chorus) No amount of random mutations can come up with the equation that would be needed for generations of species to come about There's too much about evolution that doesn't jibe with the constitution of living things & their sheer perfection & it makes me wanna shout (Chorus)
Good Day to Die (Ch.:) It’s a good day to (As2) die, Good day to (F) teach’em how to (G) live (Ds2) Bid one last goodbye to pride & give all I’ve got to give Kill off those lies stopping me from helping you believe Yeah, it’s a (F) good day for me to (G) die for you, my friend (Ds2) (F) die that (G) you might (As2) live (C/As2-D/C>2-F-G…) Thank you for killing my pride by revealing a side of me I never knew I’m not the man I thought I was Thank you for teaching me well that we all deserve hell unless by His grace We choose to receive the Son of God Thanks for the way you wipe out my suspicions & doubts By showing me where they lead & where they’re coming from Thank you for being around to show you all I’ve found Even if it turns out that you want none of it (Ch.) Thank you for lending an ear & confronting your fears In accepting me here telling you there’s more than this And if you open your heart & say your little part You’ll be taking a step you won’t ever regret Don’t think I’m leading you on with the words of this song I believe & I mean every little part of it Someone must die that another may live & I’m here to tell you That that’s precisely what Jesus did (Ch.) Good day to die that you might live (4x)

I WAS DEAD
(Em/f#)I still remember it as clearly as if it happened (D)just today: (Em/f#)I was driven in my car when suddenly this truck rolled up a(D)cross my way, (Am)It was to late to brake, and all I could do was cry (G/A)out and pray & the (Am)next thing I re(C)member (D)was the (Em/f#)crash (Em/f#...)I somehow knew that I was dead, though I remember I was feelin' great Then I heard people scream and someone by the car wreck said, 'It is too late' when I looked over there to see what he meant I thought that (Em)I would faint, for the dead man lying on the ground was me and (Am) that's when I (G) realized (C) I was feelin' (Dm) just so light and (F)hoverin' right a(Dm7) bove a nearby (Gs4) tree (G) (Am) I felt like (G) I could fly and (C) yelled, 'Hey, I (Dm) didn't die' though (F) no one heard me, (Dm) I just felt so (Gs4) free (G) (Chorus:) I was (Am/B) dead and am a(G/A)live again I was (Am/B) dead and am a(G/A)live again and when (F) I came back my (G) whole life was (Am/B) changed (Em/f#)...As I soared up into the evening sky suddenly I saw Some former loved ones who had passes away and left this World long ago They greeted me and told me not to be afraid or worry anymore as they led me through a passage of light beyond the tunnel I saw golden light, as bright as I had never seen A shiny City full of flowers of new colours, rolling hills of green As we drew nearer I was welcomed by a bright, angelic, shining Being and I felt such warmth and love I'd never known and (Am)...then, in a moment's time He showed me all my life and all I'd ever done, good, wrong or right I saw how I had failed and prayed, 'God if there's a way, please let me go back and start again!' (Chorus) (Em/f#)...Then, suddenly, to my amazement, I woke up back in the hospital Doctors around me had revived my body, which was feeling miserable But all the pain I felt could not begin to equal with the joy I felt That my life had begun to make sense Now for the first time in my whole life I could realize there was a plan and behind everything in life there is a reason and God's mighty hand and that our purpose here in life is just to learn to love our fellowman and yes, I now know there's a life after death and (Am)... I talked to all my friends about this experience Though they just laughed it off, time and again I know that it was real and so is the joy I feel I now have a mission to fulfill For..... (Chorus)
I WILL TRUST (Chorus:) I will (Em) trust & not be (G) a(Ds2)fraid, (As2) I (G) will ... (3x) I’ve got a (Em) first class ticket (G) to (Ds2)Heaven (As2) (G) Second (Em) best will be no longer (G) my (Ds2)style (As2) (G) I’m gonna (Em) sit right here & (G) stop (Ds2) worryin’ (As2) (G) & for a (Em) change I will enjoy (G) the (Ds2) ride (Chorus) I‘m an old man & had many troubles Most of which never happened anyway I must seal off myself from those bubbles (the) worries about tomorrow & yesterday (Chorus) (rap:) I’m in a good trance, gotta catch this drift
I’d Like To Be With You Right Now
I’d like to be with you right now
Under the stars somewhere, somehow & there we`d take a peaceful vow I’d like to be with you right now Oh God, to be with you right now The thought makes me want to dance & shout Your love has turned me inside out If I could be with you right now If I could be with you right now Take all your apples from tree by tree Love is what will work for me Send me a pauper, send me a clown But please let me be with you right now (1st verse)
If I could say just one thing to you I think I’d say , ‘Yeah, girl, f ... you, too That `s just no way, treat me like you do me You do me, you do me, to Treat me the way you do Just pretend that’s the end & all is said & nothing `s done drifting one step further from the sun, well, have fun. If I could send one message to you You’d read : ‘I believe what we had was true’ I know some day you’ll see me like I see you I see you, I know you’ll see me the way I see you: Just a perfectly alright ‘nuther fucked up Lonely hunter for the truth (Bridge:) Why must we break up in anger, like this? Why do we still fight after 6.000 years Guess all trust in mankind will be hereby dismissed Cause love sometimes needs stronger ties than gently singin’ `Seal It With A Kiss` (1st verse)
If That's The Way You'll Use Me (C)I'm gonna (G)be Your (F)prick, (Am) I'm gonna (G) be Your (F) poking (G) stick (C) Yes, even (B/G) if it's (Am) me they'll (Am/G) kick if (F) that's the (Am7) way You'll (Dm7) use me (G) (C...)

I wanna be Your cock, the one who wakes and makes 'em rock so, let 'em go and say I suck, if that's the way You'll use me I wanna be Your fool, Your ole heehaw and faithful mule As long as I can be Your tool and that's the way You'll use me I wanna be Your crack, the one they'll say's completely whack as long as they'll go on, not back and that's the way You'll use me I wanna be your slave, the one they'll say no shrink can save If I'll be nuts as I'll be brave, and that's the way You'll use me (Chorus) (Bridge:) (Fmaj7) Nothing in this World, no high or (E) low can ever separate me (F) from (Am7) Your (Dm7) Love (G) (Fmaj7) Any obstacle ahead are (E) only windmill giants that You'll (Dm7) help (Am7) me (F) rise a(G)bove, hey! I wanna be Your pawn, as long as I'll go ever on I'd rather make 'em scream than yawn if that's the way You'll use me I'm gonna be Your prick, I'm gonna be Your poking stick Yes, even if it's me I'll kick, if that's the way You'll use me (Chorus)
If You’d Only Reach Out
If you’d only reach out & touch Me & would call upon My name You’d find oh, sweet rest from your care & pain, as you’d never found the same If you’d only call out & receive Me, I would whisper in your ears All my wondrous, precious Words of life that would cast out all your fears If you’d only reach out & touch Me (Ch.:) And you would learn how to sing like a sparrow in spring & find a new life full of freedom Yes, you would learn how to fly like an angel, so high & you’d never come back again If you’d only reach out & touch Me If you’d just lift your heart up to heaven & would listen to My voice You’d find treasures that forever last, more than silver and all gold If you’d just open your heart & receive Me as I stand here at your door I would give you joy & such heavenly bliss as you’d never known before If you’d only reach out... (Ch.)
The Lord Himself will give you signs: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a Son and they will call Him Immanuel For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, the government rests on His shoulders. And he will be called Immanuel Wonderful Counselor Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
In Thy Skirts
Thousands of unborn new babies each day are legally murdered the civilized way In the name of progress, the name of advance they are stripped of each semblance of even a chance You may cry your heart out while they bleed to death Or think you're so great cause you stole their first breath In thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents 10.000 starvation victims a day while we carelessly throw our leftovers away We're all so clever, developed & smart We consider killing each other an art You may shrug your shoulder while they starve to death and plan which country you're going to ruin next
Is It A Sin
Is it sin to wanna share love with all men? Is it sin just because you don`t understand? Is it sin if I ask you again, is it a sin? Is it sin not to keep for myself what I`ve got? Is it sin to reach out, do I ask for a lot? Is it sin if I ask you why not?, is it a sin? Is it a sin if I act on what I do believe do you believe? Is it a sin to put feet to what we have received, to freely give? What makes you think that you`ve got nothing to win so you hold in. Is it a sin, is it a sin? So, here I stand alone against the wall of you heart & scream please collapse! Please collapse! Running all around & bang my head on the ground I scream open up! Finally open up Open up your heart ! Is it sin to wanna share love with all men ... ( first 2 verses) ... Is it sin if I asked you why not ? (3x) Is it a sin? (3x)

Pain’s a part of life just like sunshine & rain

IT’S GOTTA BE I was (G) talkin' to the Lord about some things I'd said 'cause I (Bm7) couldn't really tell had they been good or bad Our in(Am7)tentions may so often be quite good and pure then there's (C) other times that I just wouldn't be so sure So, the Lord said, 'Honey, don't fret nor dismay, there's a simple little rule by which you've got to play And if you'll stick to it you won't go astray, What(C)ever you do, what(D)ever you say, It's gotta be (G) love. It's gotta be (Em) humble it's gotta be (C) true, kind, give peace to the troubled and sight (Am7) to the blind it's gotta set the (Bm) captives free and (C) most of all, (D) it's gotta be (G) Me So I went about my life & what life's all about and I stuck to the rule, followed that golden route Till a week or so later, must have sheer forgot and a nasty little thing to say slipped out The reaction wasn't quite what I had hoped it was And well, isn't that the way that it so often goes So I'm goin' back to Jesus, what He has to say Said "Remember what I told you just the other day?" (Ch.) So if you're some fellow who's quick with his lip Let me share this with you: don't let nothin' slip that you wouldn't want someone to have said to you and remember that Jesus gave this golden rule: (Ch.)

Friend, tell Me, why, why did you betray Me? Come, seal my fate with a kiss Did your pride not let you just obey Me? You took the lies if the witch Brother, you don’t know what you’ve done, do you? Not to Me, but to your own soul You sought to save yourself, secure your own tomorrow Now that it’s done, what have you gained? For I, I will rise again, while you’ll drown in your sorrow left with your everlasting shame Go & do that which you must do quickly Name My price, what am I worth Go and take your 30 pieces of silver and cast them into the dirt Come to Me now, and ask Me the question: “What are these wounds in Your hands?” And in My tears and My pain I’ll answer: “These are the wounds of a friend.” What if a man should gain the World and lose his soul? Oh, only what’s given can be saved Now you have paid the price & thrown it all away Oh, Judas, the choices that you made
Judgment Day (Oct.2, 2006)
What is it that makes you try to avoid me? What makes you run and turn the other way? What is it that you just get so annoyed by Before there's even one word I can say? Why are you so afraid to hear me talking? And way too scared to look into my eyes? Exactly what's it you can't keep from stalking What makes you hide & put on your disguise? Oh well, that's (D) just too bad that (C) you can't stand the (G) fire Too bad that you're allergic to the heat So sad that it's the truth you don't desire but you prefer to play your game of cheats Your pitiful addiction to the darkness has made you come to fight against the light In this life's play you've fogotten what your part is no longer able to tell wrong from right One simple choice from you could well reverse this and put you back onto a better way: the childlike act of saying 'yes' to Jesus and you'll be justified on Judgement Day What good is it when one man owns the whole world and finds himself afraid to face the light No pinball wizard failed to see "game over" No day failed to be followed by the night

Just one beat of a heart away from falling apart Just one width of a hair away from just giving up But if you hold on for one more breath You’ll find shoulders to lean on And leaning find your strength Just one beat of a heart away from finding the truth Coming so close to knowing, and yet so far The choice has always been yours Determine now what you’ll be What you will do, and, baby, who you are Just one beat of a heart between the finish and start Just one blink of an eye will make the difference Just one word from your lips, one touch or even a glimpse Can determine the course of years you’ve yet to live Just one look or a smile, an inch, a yard or a mile, Second, minute, hour, or day You can’t tell anyway Who do you think’s in control? C’mon, only God knows it all Sometimes you’re tempted to think, “Does anything matter at all?” There’s just one thing you can do and that’s let Him work through you He’ll give your life a new start With nothing you can’t do Just one beat of a heart…
Just One Day
(Intro:) You came my way, bumped into my life on just an ordinary cold November day & you came to stay `cause I think you mighty like the kind of silly games you & me would like to play 1) & I’d think you & me we’ve got Yeah, I think that you and me, we’ve got Some mighty damn good reason to stay Don’t blow away, your beauty’s like the summer wind That once taught me to bow my head & praNo calling for a taxi cab, there’s not a moment I won’t grab, a 1.000 years with you are just one day Just one day I’ll do as you say cause I found out by experience That for me there is just no other way (1 + 2) ... just one day (3x) (intro)
KING OF LOVE (Em) The streets are empty and you (Asus2) hear (Am) the wind blow (D) & whisper of forgotten (G/A) things you don't know (Em/f#)if there is something for you (Cmaj7) to be(Ds2/F#)lieve (Em/D) in (B7) if there is someone you can (C) still hold (D) on to So many years of your whole life seem wasted although of every cup of fame you've tasted but all those streams of pleasure have run dry now & leave you empty with a thirsty sigh, oh But there's a voice that whispers deep within you a voice of hope that cries, 'Let the light shine through! And let it chase all your dark clouds away & change your life into a (Em) sunny (E) day (Ch.:) Let Him (Am) in, let Him (D) in This is the (G) King of Love Who's (C) calling (B/G) (Am) Calling you to come (D) back into the (G) Country of the (Em) Free (E) Let Him (Am) in, let Him (D) in This is the (G) King of (F#/Dsus2) Love Who's (Em) calling (Am) Calling you to (D) come back to be (Gs4) free (G) So many people live in their own cages chains forged by their own hands in selfish rages Prisoners of their own desires & passions yet never really knowing satisfaction But there's a Man Who longs so hard to free them Who lived for love & died for you and me and rose again to set the captives free that we might live for all eternity (Ch.)
(Music: G.F.Haendel, original Italian lyrics: unknown, English and Spanish translation: Dave Mendoza)
Oh my sweet Lord I feel you inside Oh, Lord, the peace You give Courage envelops me When You are near God, come live in me I want to lay me down Here in the soft green grass My saving Love No, don’t leave me, Lord Please, don’t forsake me, Lord Light and life of my heart Let me hope to bask in the beating of Your heart Please, don’t forsake me, Lord O mi Señor Te siento en mi Señor, cual paz me das me envueleve el animo cuando me hablas Dios, ven, vive en mi quiero hundirme aqui dentro de Tu calor salvante Amor No me dejes, no No me dejes, Senor Luz de mi corazon Solo en tu latido puedo esperar en Ti quiero estar
Life Is Deeper You can give me your phony smile & tell me you're alright You can even tell me you're satisfied with the way you drink away your nights You can tell me your stories of how happy you once were but a look into your eyes shows me that there's a deep desire in you for something more (Chorus:) Life is deeper, much deeper than some people confess That is why they all live in such a superficial mess There is more to, much more to life than people admit It is more than playing poker, drinking beer or watching football on your tv set You can give me your party life & pretend you're living high & I congratulate you for the different one you lay almost every other night You can call it relaxation or satisfaction of some kind But if that's what you call happiness, my friend, I really must confess you're far from right (chorus) (Bridge:) But you just wonder how I can believe in the hereafter & all my pleas for you to believe are met with cynical laughter But if eternity's an ocean then this life's just a tea spoon's portion of it all, friend, can't you see? You can show off with your latest model of a BMW take me to your favorite golf club every Sunday afternoon You can treat me nice with color slides of your trips to Honolulu but fulfill that yearning, aching void inside your cold & empty heart, they'll never do (chorus)
Life's Like a River Life's like a river that is flowing endlessly ever on towards the boundless ocean of eternity Down the mountains through the valleys, passing nature scenes Or through filthy, smoky cities, till it meets its destiny Mile by mile you run your course, keep fowin' where you're bound until the journeys over & the day your goal is found A song's like a picture, some abstract & sometimes clear so, let me paint my message now for everyone to hear The truth is an arrow that can cut you to the heart deep down to the bone & marrow, it'll tear your soul apart Separates the fight from wrong & shows you where you stand until the day you face yourself & take the master's hand Speech is a mirror by the which we all can see if the one who talks is chained by pride or whether he is free the mind is a traveler, a lonesome pilgrim on his own that can meet a lot of fellows that'll tell him where to roam Mile by mile you run your course, keep goin' where you're bound until the journeys over & the day your goal is found
Life's Not A Freeway
I know what's on your mind, babe You think I'm left way behind, babe But one fine day you'll find out that despite the way it may seem, hey, life's not a freeway No need for pushin' & shovin' It's time we started some lovin' You need to get through your mind that despite the way... It's a rough & rugged mountain track that once you have started you don't dare look back I know what's clouding your mind, man, pressure from every side, Stan You've gotta learn to say 'Stop!' 'cause,... I know you're tryin' to be first, boy but turning out just a jerk, Roy I think you better slow down, for...
Listen & Live
There is a life void of worry & strife you don't have to act as though you had arrived If you pretend you'll lose in the end why don't you just reach out for the Master's hand Darling, (Chorus:) Listen & live Listen & live, Stop, look, listen & live Listen & live Listen & live, Stop, look, listen & live Empty your mind strip your soul & take time to leave all your cares & your worries behind In the quiet & calm find that soft, healing balm just lay your soul into the Lord's mighty palm as you (chorus, repeat)
LISTEN TO THE WHISPERS (capo 3rd fret) (Chorus:) Listen to the (C) whispers (G) (Am) in your (F) heart that will tell you (C) where to (Dm7) go, (Am7) listen to the (F) voice of (G) love Listen to the (C) whispers (G) deep (Am) in your (F) heart [Listen to the (C) whispers! ] (F) (C) (G) Listen to the whispers, to the Words of Love that tell you what to do 'cause they come from above You can hear the whispers if you're still enough (Listen to the whispers!) (Am7) Child, there are so (Em7) many of us just waiting, (Fmaj7) waiting for a chance to (G) speak (Am7) Child, you know, we're (Em7) here to help you you've just (Fmaj7) got to have the faith & re(Gs4)ceive (G) (Chorus) Give, give out the love, children because this is an important time Live, don't be afraid now, just be there & give it out, oh, let it shine (Bridge:) There are so (Fmaj7) many souls that might (Em7) never know His love & (Fmaj7) joy & Heaven's peace of (Em7) mind That's why (Fmaj7) you must go to share & (Em7) tell & show them the (Fmaj7) blissful life that's yet to (Gs4) find (Chorus) .....to give out, give out, give out the love .....we'll give you guidance from above
LITTLE ANGEL OF THE STREET (G-C9-G-Ds4-E/G-C9-G-Ds4-G) Little (C9) angel of the (G) street (Ds4) (Em/G) you have (C9) made my life com(G)plete (Ds4) You came with your sweet, sweet mile saying "just a wee, wee while & every(Am)thing will (C) be al(Ds4)right" Little angel of the street You put me back upon my feet You brought hope where there was none I couln't cope, you taught me, "hang on, the darkest hour's just before dawn" (Intro) (Em/G) You talked about how Christ was born to bear His cross & all their scorn to bring life to one like me Little angel of the street You were more than kind & sweet Will you tell your Lord for me since that's where you went to be that I'm ready to believe? (Em/G) Tell Him, "thanks" for sending you to this drunk & homless fool tell Him from me, "I owe you" and if He wants, He can send me, too Angel, see you (G) soon Oh, Angel I see you I'll be home someday soon thanks to you, girl, thanks to you
Why isn't it easier to heal the pain When you've been stripped of your pride & left standing in the rain? I wish I could help you make it through this fight I know it's rough on your own tryin' to make another night Where is all this lonely living gonna end? You feel like wanting to cry or even die, you hurt so bad Come on, turn around, I've had enough of your frown you should get out of yourself There's so much to do, there's someone waiting for you somerwhere else If you believe you'll find strength to pull right out of this hole in your mind Learn to receive from above & you'll be able to give and you'll find your love Bad when you're a loser from the start to end but if you'll give it a try you'll be back on your feet again sad when all the wounds inside don't seem to mend but there'll be waiting a prize if you hold on until the end Wrong to give up when you feel you're beat again Without a battle to fight there'll be no shiny crown to win Get up on your feet or get on out on the street & face the morning again You've got to break out, away from under that cloud you've been haunted by so long Find someone else who needs love & you won't ever be lonely again Open the shell that's surrounding your heart & just reach out your hand: There's love!
Long Time Searching (G) I’m so weak, Lord, & (C) You’re so (D) strong (G-C-D) (Em) You’re right, Lord, & (C) I’m so (D) wrong (Em-C-D) (Am) I know to You (C) I be(D)long (Am-C-D) I’ve spent a (Am) long, long, long time (C) searching to (D) find my way (G) home (C-D) You’re my light when I can’t see I was tied up, You set me free I’m Yours for eternity I’ve been a long, long, long time walkin’ just to get to You Lord, I love You to the bones I know You won’t leave me alone It’s to you I sing my song I’ve spent a long, long, long time searchin’ to find my way home Thank You for Your big, big love And the power to rise above Thank You, Lord, for AME* & for giving us the power of the keys Lord, You’re really my best Friend Thank You for holding my hand Help me up when I can’t stand You bring Your bright light in my life, You help me understand Jesus, You’re so way, way cool! You’re so wise and I’m your fool Help me, Lord, stick to Your rules I’ve been a long, long, long time waitin’ to become Your tool (1st verse) * AME: “Ask Me everything!”
Losers Turn Winners
The fake of the century's revealed now, though some are still blind and can't see, it just isn't all gold that glitters, not everything's good that is cheap. And some things can be quite expensive and bring you deep down to your knees, for those things you insisted on having, you may find out your life was the fees.
For some people life is a teacher and others won't ever perceive, too late, much too late comes the awakening, they find out they have been deceived. The mystery's past comprehension to sqare minded natural men, the harvest they'll reap is damnation, let's break loose as long as we can.
So here's to all of you captives who really believe to be free but are bound by the chains of your own bigotries, traditions, rivalry and greed. I just can't cope with all their hatred, the madness in all that I see, oh God, I beseech you to bring it to halt, this system of idolatry.
For you who may think we're the losers, for lack of material gain, may find out when we'll reach the end of the road, that the losers turn winners again, the losers turn winners again.
The line's drawn between those who're simple and blindly just treading along, and those who know just what they're doing, they'll have you all sold before long. Their plan has been kept through the ages and soon will have come to its end, the plot is complete and has rendered the whole world in the palm of their hands.
I damn all your weavings of evil, your rituals, cursing and spells, compared to the light you're just fooling around your road will just land you in hell. I pray for all those you have blinded that one day they might again see, I pray for the ones you have bound with your lies that the truth will again set them free.
And though you may think I'm a loser for lack of what you call success I'd rather be poor as a peasant than found guilty of all your excess.
Yeah, you who may think we're the losers, for lack of material gain, may find out when we're 'round the corner that the losers turned winners again, the losers turn winners again.

Love Doesn't Care What People Say I've got a feeling, an honest opinion an inner conviction to stand up for what's right For there have been times I listened to people caring too much what they'd call wrong or right Now set me free, Lord. Help me to be what You want me do be and not care what they say For I must be free, Lord. & know what I'm here for And see it through no matter what price I have to pay (Chorus :) Love doesn't care what people may say It just keeps on loving the one anyway Though thousands may try to toss you off the brink No, love doesn't carfe what people think Sometimes I doubt aand sometimes I waver struggling to bring out the words on my heart No compromise, no truth mixed with lies will ever succeed to turn darkness to light Help me to be bold now. a messenger sold out on what I'm proclaiming wherever I go So I'll be a fighter, willing as a martyr to live and do die for the truth that I know ( Chorus ) Cause if you really love someone you're afraid of losing You'll tell them the truth even though if may hurt An honest foundation makes the best relations Keep sharing your heart with the world everyday

(Chorus) (Em) How any of us here can (Cmaj7) quite sincerely (Bm7) say that we are truly in the (Em) way that Jesus Christ taught us to walk? Our deeds tell more than what we say So let us all do more than talk and not just know but walk the way How many of us are distracted by the means of keeping rolling the machine? We feed our bodies, not the soul and consequently fail to know what it is that makes us all grow Oh, (Chorus)

( Hello Heaven)
Hello Heaven, good-bye, Earth It’s been a good time, could have been worse Don’t shed a tear, friends, if I must go into that Light much brighter than anything we’ve known We’ve had our good times & hard times, too But be assured that Someone’s got a clue Don’t weep my children, at least not for me But if you must, weep for the darkness you’ll still see For men love darkness more than the light & that’s the reason there’s so much more wrong than right So, this is my farewell, though the time I may not know I’ll hear the tolling of the bell, just let me be prepared to go Not be attached to nor cling to treasures Pertaining to this world, I want to fly & just let go So, hello Heaven, good-bye, Earth
My Hiding Place My hiding place where no one goes, that's where I wait for them to know that neither power, luck nor gain determine who will truly reign My hiding place where this is heard: "In the beginning was the Word" where neither day reigns nor the night, but only Your eternal light my hiding place My hiding place, where there's no room for wealth nor money to consume but only love there reigns supreme, and shines on me its golden beam My hiding place, that's where you'll find the One Who rules my heart and mind So vast and great and yet so close, my every thought and dream He knows My hiding place My hiding place, that secret spot Your Holy Book has spoken of where shepherd king David of old found refuge from the bitter cold For he who dwells beneath Your wings will stand when all else around sinks and they who find comfort in You know they've a Helper strong & true, my Hiding Place My hiding place, that's where you'll find me leaving this old world behind a place of peace within the storm, You are my Rock, Safety and Warmth You are the hand that shelters me, the only One Who sets me free I can't get nothing out of life unless there's You for me to hide, My Hiding Place
My Melody You say you know me by the way I walk categorize me by the way I talk I'm just a gypsy beggar you can mock & that's alright with me You judge me by the way I sing my song & whisper to your friend, that note was wrong She answers, and his nose is much too long! What kind of freak is he? (Chorus:) But I Just sing you my melody a love song that could set your spirit free And even though perhaps you don't like me just one or two minutes, couldn't you listen? Cause I don't wanna be the star of the show I just want one thing & that's let you know that there's Someone above you who loves you more than you know You say attention's what he's looking for Or, he's just after money, & that's all Why don't you tell him to get on the ball & go to work like we? And all the while you try to analyse how could you ever even realize that in my song a secret message lies how could you ever see? (Chorus)

Never Quit No, I'm not giving in, I'll keep hanging on I'm not giving up, never gonna stop No, I, I refuse to quit, I'm destined to go on I may not be that strong but I carry on Never quit! Do you sometimes feel as if nobody cares no one shares the burdens that you bear? Do you sometimes wonder "Is anybody there?" Well I can relate if that's how you feel I know it's real but I assure you, it's no big deal Cause when temptation bids me to give in, saying, "You can't win" and when the Enemy is closing in, I just grin and answer, (Ch.) Do you sometimes feel as though your life's a mess the more you give, they all could not care less? Do you sometimes wonder where's the point in this?

No Friggin’ Way (Nov.23, 2006)
Would I trade my faith for your deluded ways of hatred? No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way, dude! Sell my life of freedom for a fake steak in the Matrix? No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way! You can tell me all you want how life evolved in ancient swamps Repeat your mantras ‘til you almost fall for them yourselves Still I won’t believe a word of all your expert schemes I’ve heard enough of all of that so put your book back in the shelf Am I gonna bow down to your idol on the mount? No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way, dude! Take your mark into my head or hand for a discount? No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way! Maybe I won’t be as brave then as I feel right now But I know my God’s gonna save me from your clutches anyhow You can tell me to behave, but I still think you’re so depraved Although your outside’s shiny like a golden polished cow Am I gonna fall for you when all the others will do? No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way, dude! Cause in my heart there burns a flame that’s gonna put your pride to shame, A flame that’s even older than the fallen likes of you In my soul there glows a name that signifies the end of your game Satan, in the name of Jesus, I defy you (solo) Do you really think you stand a chance against the Master of the dance? No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way, dude! No friggin’ way!
No One Else (Chorus:) Lord, there is non one else like You No one as marvelous as You No one as beautiful, wonderful, magnificent as You Jesus, You thrill me through & through There's nothing I can't do with You Jesus, You lift me up, raise me up, as you fill me up with You (C) Everyday the sun greets me, the first thing on my mind is (G) You My (C) first responsibility and (Am7) number one priority is You I can do (Em) nothing without (C) You, cause there's... (Ch.) I give my plans up willingly, without You, I'm just silly me, it's true Without Your re-directions, Lord, without Your sweet affection: no clue! Lord, I haven't got a clue (Ch.)
No Place To The Snakes! Give no place to the snakes, awake, for Christ's sake! Their lies & their hate just don't cut the cake They've been blinded like fools, they're the Devil's own tools They are suckers for Pan & his motto, "Crap rules!" Can't you see that their intention's to drag you to the pit? Make you despise all that's good & forget about it They won't stop until you cop out & become one of them, join the club of those all heaven calls a crying shame They're despisers of their birthright, they just toss it away for a cheap mess of pottage that's seen better days! 'No place to the snakes!' is our motto today Don't let any cheap excuses steal your crown away! What it all boils down to & on what it all depends is: Are you standing on the Rock or where DO you stand? Is it Jesus & His Word or the System of man that your faith is built upon? Rock or shifting sand? No place to the snakes, nor the Evil one if you listen to him, you're gonna come undone! he's scared out of his wits of what you're going to be: The Lord's Endtime power-houses, making history! No one is strong enough to stand on their own, without the Word, that standard in your life you will be blown about with every wind of every doctrine, every silly act cause faith is built by faithful study of the Word & that's fact! No place to the Devil, not at any time or level! If your suffer with us now, you're gonna reign forever But if you choose to reign now, you'll lose, so beware of the leaven of the Scribes & the Pharisees' share (1st verse)

I woke up this morning & once again I looked at the state that my life is in Beginning to wonder if it’s right Is this really the way that things should be Or have I failed God or’s He failing me? Then I hear His voice, “Not in your life!” (Chorus:) I don’t have a perfect life, I’m no perfect husband to my wife But I have a perfect God I don’t have a perfect house & man, you should see the car I drive but I have a perfect God And He’s all I need & all you need, too With Him there is nothing that we can’t do & know everything’s alright Cause His perfect care cares for me & you & His perfect strength will make all things new & love us, imperfect as we are Cause what greater love can a great God do Than give His own Son for both, me & you To show us that we’ve got a perfect God So I walk through my day & once again It’s me and my Savior holding my hand & I’m thinking, “Gosh, what a life!” For I can see beauty in everything & meaning & sense where before there’s been barely the hint of a glimpse of light (Chorus, last half twice)

Popularity (July 31 2009 - translated & adapted from German original) People are asking me, "Hey, where's your money, dude? Are you nuts? You can't just live the way it pleases you!" But they don't understand that I can't live that way: another cog in the machine, same old rut every day They say, "How come he doesn't want to play our game?

But I just know that your game ain't the one that's meant for me, your hunt for entertainment, cash and popularity (Chorus:) Come, oh come, heavenly One Come shine on us like the sun (2x) Popularity is not the thing for me because the One for Whom I live was nailed onto a tree He wasn't popular, He was no superstar That was a lie cooked up by someone that's gone way too far My Lord was persecuted, executed like a thief So to think they'd make me famous would be quite naive As long as I am truly servant of God's Son this world and I are never gonna be as one I'm only here to say how much you're being loved No matter how often you turn your back on God There is no greater beauty than His glorious light: Jesus the Son Who brightens up my darkest night (Chorus 2x) (Rep. last 2 verses) (Chorus)

Rise Above (English Version of “Steig’ hinauf”) Proclaim it now with all your might: Under a bushel’s no place for the light Open the door and let it out What you receive is what you must shout You’re not alive just to stay alive No, that’s not what life’s all about The choice is yours: high or be low Make up your mind & let us know The higher path’s the one you are called to walk All others lead where you won’t go No man lives just to himself alone No, brother, that just isn’t so (Chorus:) Don’t allow to remain unfound all that’s yours yet to retrieve You were born to walk higher ground, life is yours, if you believe Pay no mind to “it can’t be done” nor to those who push & shove Mountain peeks are your destiny, do what you must do for love: Rise above! Down in the valley they start to scream Because you’re ruining their scheme “Hey, that’s no way, get yourself back down here! Take your place in the machine!” Don’t listen to them, their Titanic is sinking Don’t let them rob you of your dream (Chorus twice)
Roses or Daggers Turn off this way I feel, your thoughts and words are real Are your words roses you pass on or knives & daggers made of steel? Will your cutting remarks just leave a host of scars Or will your words blind up & heal the broken hearts along your path? (Chorus:) Choose now which way to walk Be mindful when you talk & careful with your choice words //: will they be blessing or a curse :\\ (2x) will they be blessings? Society today teaches us wicked ways You turn your television on & your home’s flooded with decay Chase out these evil birds that utter hateful words Lest you be one more casually & yictim of the prince of dirt (Chorus 2x)
Run To My Arms
Run to My arms, I will hold you so close, I will keep you from harm Run to My arms, you won’t need any clothes, here you’ll be safe and warm Run to My arms, baby run like the wind, run as fast as you can Run to my arms, baby, run to My arms again (G*) I have heard you in the garden, (F#/D*) searching for Me You came with (Em*) pain as you saw you were not as (D*) I would have you be I’m calling you to cast aside your garments and your robes I long for nothing but to feel your skin, feel you so close So, run to my arms, remove these silky gowns, let your hair blow wild in the wind Run to My arms, strip off these things which hide the warmth of your body from My skin Run to My arms, let nothing come between us so that only you remain Run to My arms, baby, run to My arms again I wish only only to touch you & I care not what they say Come to me now, my bride, my love, let nothing cause delay Let your heart pound out each step that brings you close to Me Your steps be swift, your thoughts be of none other, let Me be all you see (Rep.

Sacred Ground St. Teresa, pray for me that I might make it back some day That I might get my feet of clay back on sacred ground Hey, St. Martin, pray for me that one good day I, too, might see That in no other thing but love is real happiness found You know I do believe but I don` t always put feet to it , I need a little help from all you guys up there in Heaven, ginme sacred ground (Put my feet back on sacred ground!) Hey, St. Peter, pray for me just like Jesus once did for thee When the old serpent thought that he might sift you like wheat You know we all get weak but if we`ll ask we`ll receive That` s why I need a little help from all you guys up there... (Chorus:) Put my feet back on sacred ground (Bridge:) Send someone down here to me to take me by the hand Help this feeble mind of mine to finally understand, hey, hey ... (1st verse + Bridge) (Chorus 4x)
In the Beginning was the Word, was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God And the Word was made flesh (was made flesh) and lived among us He came unto His own and His own received Him not (Ch.:) But as many as received, as received, as received Him to them gave He power to become the sons of God even to them that believe, that believe (believe) on His name to them gave He power to become the sons of God You see, He's standing at the door of your heart, of your heart now, knocking, waiting for you to let Him in You see that all you've got to do is open up your heart now And just ask Him, receive him, ask Jesus to come in (Ch.) You see, we've all been sinners, we've all made mistakes and that's why God sent His Son that through His death we might be saved Because God loved everyone in the world so much, He gave His one and only Son so that through faith in Him we could be saved (Ch.) You can't work for it (work for it) because it is a gift And He won't take it back from you (back from you) because it is a gift you can't work for it, pay for it, earn it, it's a gift you can't be good enough nor too bad, can't deserve it, it's a gift (Ch.) For by grace are you saved through faith - not of yourselves it is a gift of God and not of works - not of yourselves for the wages of sin is death - not of yourselves But the gift of God is eternal - eternal - eternal - eternal life But the gift of God is eternal - eternal - eternal life through Jesus Christ (Ch.) Just pray this pray & repeat after me and say, "Jesus, come into my heart! Forgive all my sins, give me eternal life, I believe You are the Son of God..." (Ch.)
SAVE OUR SOULS!
There's a storm on the horizon, many will drown in the flood But it's in your hand to save them: don't be guilty of their blood Son of man, I made you a watchman to warn the wicked of their doom But if you fail to give them warning I’ll require their blood from you Can’t you hear their call, can’t you hear them, too? Their spirits are crying out to you: “Won’t you hear our call, won’t you save our souls? Won’t you come & do all you can do? (Chorus:) Save our souls! Save our souls! Save our souls from the grind of the old! Save our souls! Save our souls! Save our souls from the darkness & cold, Save our souls!” This Titanic’s slowly sinking, sinking to an icy ground Don’t waste precious time just thinking; seek the lost & those who will be found For there are those who still remember there’s more to life than vain success And they are reaching out their hands now, won’t you save them Won’t you save them from this mess? (Chorus) Can’t you hear their calls, can’t you hear them, too? Their spirits are crying out to you: “Won’t you hear our call, won’t you hear our call? Won’t you come & do all you can do? (Chorus)
Say What You've Got to Say
Boy, you've got something to say so don't just lock it away Let it burst, let it flow They don't need more silly songs but one who tells'em what's wrong and which way to go (Am) Say what you've (G) got to say (Em) speak what's on your (F) heart to speak Show them the life and way and truth they may not seem to seek Give what you've got to give Don't hide what you received They may not show today what soon will be known, that you've got just what they need It may not promise success, this road that looks like a mess compared to Mammon's big guns But you're to free them from fear and not just tickle their ears there's more at stake here than fun (Ch.) (Br.:) (Dm) Give them new (Am) life for real a (F) love that's not (G) found in this world (Dm) Tell them a(F)bout the deal (Em) that's guaranteed (Am) out of this world Never again may this chance come around To lead (G) this soul Home So, (Ch.)
Seasons (G---D-C—Em---D-C—G---D-C—Em---C-G) In the spring time of my life I heard the birds like angels sing Thrilled by all the newness every day of life would bring The sky, the animals and flowers, all seemed to be as one in the spring time of my life, my dance on earth had just begun In the summer of my life, I danced, I laughed, I drank and sang Sought the company of others, held many a maiden's hand I said, "Sun, you'll be my friend forever, moon, you'll be my bride And I hoped the dance would never end with you right by my side In the autumn of my life I felt the wind begin to blow And the fruits of what my life had sown clearly began to show So I harvested my tears and laughter and deemed it the best I enjoyed the fruits of all my labors and laid down to rest In the winter of my life I could hear the angels sing Ever beckoning to come back to the Source of everything There was some remorse but also joy as I could hear Him say "Welcome back, enjoy forever what I've done for you this day!" In the seasons of my life I learned that everything belongs to love God and one another is the purpose of our song He that sows in tears will reap in joy and gather his reward In the seasons of my life I learned to love and trust the Lord
SEE YOU LATER
Where you stand, I must have missed Perhaps your face will tell me this If you won`t pull back into your den Do something for me,don`t run off again! Where you`re headed, no one really knows Least of all yourself, but that`s the way it goes Anywhere a pretty face will take A young woman who`s just just learning how to fake (Chorus:) Listen to the word I`ve got for you, there`s nothin` you can say or think or try to do that`ll ever manage to replace respect See you later, once your senses have you back I don`t know with whom or how you sleep I just hope that he`s a little deep Not like the rest of those superficial dudes Who threaten to pluck you up by your roots. (Chorus 2x)
Seguiré / I’ll Go On
(Chorus:) Con El seguiré a cualquier lado, con El me iré al citio dorado
With Him I’ll go on – wherever. With Him I’ll walk on to heaven No me importa donde vaya, tampoco peligros que hayan And I don’t care where He’s going, nor which perils I’ll be knowing No me importa que haga el malo, no me iré de Su lado Whatever the foe may do, from God’s side I’ll never move (add:) (Chorus)
Jesus es Amor que nunca falla, Dios es el calor que acalenta mi alma Jesus, He is Love that won’t let me go, my God is the warmth inside my soul Y aunque no sé donde vaya, sé que mi Dios nunca falla Though I don’t know where He’s leading, I know He will never leave me Y aunque ya no veo nada, sólo sé Jesus me ama And though I still can’t see nothing, all I know is Jesus loves me Amor, la verdad, amor – nada mas The one truth is love, come on, rise above Jesús, que vengas, danos que tengamos Jesus, please, Lord, come, give us a new Home
Send Me A Light
Sometimes you feel there's a world on your shoulders, day after day slowly we're getting older, faint seems the visions and dreams that inspired us yesterday, caught in a web of taboos and possessions was the desire for success my transgression? All I want now is to find a way out, a way to escape.
Somewhere I know there just must be an answer, a purpose for me in this world to exist for, I don't know where but I won't give up searching till I find, I can't believe that the dream I once lived should be over, and I don't see how it could be that it all should have left me nowhere. Give me new faith to hang on to, give me new hopes I can cling to, send me a light that will guide me through all this night around me.
Funny it seems how the things we most long for, once obtained can leave us cold like a closed door, all those material things can bring is such emptiness. Trapped in a cage of clichees and belongings, I don't need a house or a car to feel strong in. All I want now is to finally break out, a way to escape.
Somewhere I know there just must be an answer, a purpose for me in this world to exist for, I don't know where but I won't give up searching till I find,
I can't believe that the dream I once lived should be over, how could it be that it all should have left me nowhere. Give me new faith to hang on to, give me new hopes I can cling to, send me a light that will guide me through all this night around me. Give me new hope to hang on to, give me new faith I can cling to, Send me a light, sned me a light, to guide me through the night.
Send Me Right Back To You
Here I stand at the start of a new thing, somehow, somewhere, someplace new. And I know that wherever it leads me, you'll show me just what to do. As long as I'll stay true I'll hear from you and I'll know where to move.
And I don't know, will I succeed or will I fail in my pursuit. I just know that the sowing is my job and the reaping is all up to you. I'll do what I can do to spread the news and what else can I do but tell the world about you.
And the road isn't gonna be easy all of the time, this I know. But it's better to suffer a little than to live like a king just for show, and I'll go high and low, fast or slow, until everyone knows.
Here I am singin' to someone, sending my thoughts up to you. And I know that whether they'll like it or whether they won't, you're the truth. And when the race is run and work's all done and I'll finally be through, send me right back to you,
send me right back, send me right back on to you, please let me be with you, let me, send me, just sent me right back to you!
Servant of the King
You may speak with the tongues of angels, you may know all things May be brave & defy all danger that this world may bring You may know how to walk on water, you may dine with kings May establish your own world order & wear a diamond ring But can you joy in the simple glory a sunset brings? Or have faith to believe the story about the King of kings? And if you do, can you yield all questions to His royal hands? If you’re calling yourself a Christian, would you go to the end? Would you follow Him up that mountain where His cross stands Where His blood once became a fountain, nails pierced His feet & hands? And would you partake of that communion of God with men And take the gift of Salvation from His Own hands to find (Ch.:) He‘s real, so real; more real than anything you see or feel And you yield your will, surrender everything, become a servant of the King In the valley of indecision multitudes trudge along Perishing without any vision, souls void of tune or song For too many neglect their mission to right the wrongs They’ve avoided the Master Fisher’s call for way too long So, lift your eyes up unto the harvest, white in the fields Oh, have mercy on all the starving souls who long to know that... (Chorus 2x)
Shadows Who will be My torch in the middle of the night? Who'll whisper My truth in the void of any right? (Ch.:) Run from the shadows, you must be strong soon the night will break into a new blue dawn Hush, little darling, you've run too long soon the light is gonna sing its victory song Herald the morning with its golden glow Soon the summer will melt the winter's snow Fly on the wings of an eagle, like a dove Hide in the lonesome wilderness, My Love (Chorus) ...leave the empty grave forever far below ...leave the shadows far behind
Shady Cloak Of Lies Shady Cloaks of lies -- the Devil's favorite game Pulls 'em 'cross their eyes -- a dirty rotten shame So they won't even realize that they've been fooled & they've been framed by the shady cloaks of lies one of the Devil's very favorite games Tell them there's no plan, that there's no purpose at all tell 'em it's coincidence they're living on this ball Tell them God is dead, no one to catch you when you fall & pretty soon you'll have 'em so confused & scared you'll see they won't resist at all (Chorus:) Shady Cloaks of lies from the time children go to school Shady Cloaks of lies only a few find they've been fooled Shady Cloaks of lies from the cradle to the grave The truth was crucified with Jesus, but He rose again so that we could be saved Try to count each piece of dirt, polluting every land Try to count each chemical, each dead bird in the sand Try, (to) count all crimes & evils, every hair on every skunk & you still won't come up with the amount of lies that you've been handed by the punk (Chorus) Shady Cloaks of lies -- the Devil's favorite game Pulls 'em 'cross their eyes -- a dirty rotten shame So they won't even realize that they've been fooled & they've been framed by the shady cloaks of lies one of the Devil's very favorite games
(Chorus:) Shine, shine, shine! Go & let the whole world know just what it is that’s on My mind Shine, shine, shine! And I will let them know that I’m with you if you’ll only let it shine This is My will for you, to let your light so shine If you will yield to Me they’ll know that you are Mine A city that is on a hill no one can hide I’ll be your flame if you’ll proclaim my name & burn free Let it… (Chorus) The power is yours to let there be darkness or light The power is yours to choose to turn wrong into right A city that is on a hill no one can hide I’ll be your flame if you’ll proclaim my name & burn free Let it shine,… (Ch. 3x)
Silver & Steel My Love's eyes are shining just like silver & steel there is no way to sing about the way that I feel Sweeter than honey, Her skin's whiter than milk Her hair as dark as the night, her touch as tender as silk She's got me running on the water, she's got me ridin' on the wind There's just no way I could describe this crazy state that I'm in She makes me rich man or a pauper, thief or a prince my universe is out of order if my Love won't let me in (Chorus) My Love's eyes are shining just like silver & steel there is no way to sing about the way that I feel Clearer than water, Her heart's purer than gold fills me with strength when I'm tired, makes me feel young when I'm old There's no way I could be without Her without Her love I'd be lost I'm like a fish out of the water, I need Her at any cost Won't let Her slip right through my fingers won't let Her part from me again I need my love right here to linger until the very end
Simply existing is hard enough to do So, if you don’t mind me sayin’ so But I don’t need the likes of you To tell me I don’t do anything stewing here in my own brew But that simple little living thing’s already hard enough to do (1st line) So don’t come `round here calling me an uneducated little fool I’m a slow but I’m a happy man & well, can that be said of you Cause that simple ... (Bridge:) You come here tellin` me all that I`ve got to do but I`d rather listen to the voice I know is true (1st line) If you don`t know where you`re goin` ,boy we`re gonna see who`s been the fool just sit down, get your instructions, too from the one who cares for you & can turn simply existing into a life joyful & true
Sing About You I shouldn’t sing about You Though that’s just all I can do So maybe I’ll just cover up & make this sound like soda pop Some jingle from the TV slop Cause I shouldn’t sing about You I shouldn’t sing about You Though You’re all I know that’s true So maybe I’ll just drop Your name Before I put myself to shame & I will be the one to blame cause I shouldn’t sing about You I shouldn’t sing about You Though there’s some folks who just do Scream “Hallelujah,” sing & shout Tell all the world what they’re about I wonder how come they’re allowed When I shouldn’t sing about You (Br.:) (Am7) Maybe I can make You a big (G) myste(F)ry So no one has to know what it is I believe I don’t know if I’m bold enough to tell the world about Your love After all, they’re smart enough to figure out what You’re about Let the others sing & shout, I’ll hide my talents in the ground I shouldn’t sing about You Some folks just shirk when I do Cause You’re just so unpopular You’re all else but a superstar They all say it would go too far If I kept on singin’ ‘bout You I shouldn’t sing about You But there’s nothing else I can do So let’em try to wipe me out I simply can’t help sing & shout Aah, Jesus, You’re what life’s about I can’t stop singin’ but You And on & on & on & on Till all those jerks are finally gone I’ll keep on singin’ ‘bout You
(Chorus:) I’m not better than you no matter what it is you do We’ve all blowin it, it’s true: I have surely messed up, too I’m not bad better than you I’m a sinning saint like you Some folks just can’t wait They’ve got to bend each bent line straight They see things black & white They’ve got to know what’s wrong or right But Jesus said, it’s best to wait To see what grows there: wheat or weed As much as we would like to be, Perfect’s not the way we emerge yet (Chorus) If you’re better than Joe, Congratulations! Way to go! If you’re better than Jim, self-righteousness might be your sin Just remember, that little splinter In Jim & Joe’s eye, they’ll survive It would seem, that old beam In my own eye needs more attention (Ch.)
Sleep On Is this all that you have found? All you live for – here & now? Nothing more than what you see right now, Each sight, each touch, each sound Is this all that you believe? All you hear & feel & see? All that matters to you is this moment However fleeting it may be Sleep on, sleep on If that’s all you wish to see Sleep on, sleep on If that’s what your choice will be Do I scare you with my song? Think that I’m the one who’s wrong? “Things should stay where each of them belongs and they’ve been this way for so long” (Ch.2x)

I'll be your water when you thirst, make you feel better when you're worst If you will only put Me first I'll give you everything My name is "Love, all that you need!", If you feel trapped, I'll set you free If you will only come to Me, I'll ease your every pain If you'll let Me make love to you, you'll see there's nothing we can't do I'll be your power when you're weak show you the answers that you seek I'm all of this & so much more and I am standing at your door I'm the One Who created you, forever I'll love you I will show you the solutions, child, there is nothing more to say I'll clear away all your confusion any price for you I'd pay I'll be your Love of all loves, I'm gonna help you rise above and when your life on earth is through I'll be right (D) there to welcome (G) you (I'm always here to comfort you)

Love, stop breaking my heart, I gave it to you, you tear it apart. Love, hold on to my heart, two souls gropin' 'round alone in the dark. I feel the rain fall down on my soul, just soothing the pain that I've come to know. I hear the rain, the ground is so dry, wash away the stains that covered my life.
Listen to it, the soul rain that washes me clean, just try and catch the soul rain that falls deep within, I've got a thing pouring under my skin I call soul rain.
Tears, yes, I have cried tears, in secret, alone, hiding from my fears, love, start melting the ice, this world is so cold, infested with lies. I feel the rain pour into my life, it waters my heart and streams from my eyes, I hear the rain, I open my hands, I open my lips, I kiss and I drink the dew heaven sends.
Listen to it, the soul rain that washes me clean, just try and catch the soul rain that falls deep within, I've got a thing pouring under my skin I call soul rain.
Listen to it, the soul rain that falls deep within, just try and catch the soul rain that washes me clean,
and when I smile there's a rainbow that beams through my soul rain.
(April 5 & 6, 2007)

STANDARD OF LOVE
(Asus2) Love don't give up hope to soon, though you're not born with silver spoon in (A/E) hand or mouth, nor your own room with hobby horse & lots of toys, don't (F#°/A) worry away the afternoon, those (F#°/D) pampered little girls & boys are (Asus2/C#) not as rich as (Esus4) you For (Asus2) I have something more to give to My children than to live mere (A/E) superficial, little lives with everything that money buys & (F#°/A) yet an emptiness within that (F#°/D) grows & grows with every sin of (Asus2/C#) selfishness & (Esus4) pride All (Asus2) the distractions in the world could never numb the pain & the hurt that (A/E) comes from leaving out the word proceeding from the mouth of God to (F#°/A) shine a light onto your path, bring (F#°/D) love & light where darkness was, the (Asus2/C#) code to bring your system up (Esus4) to the standard of (Asus2) love the standard of (A/E) love the standard of (F#°/A) love (F#°/D) (Asus2/C#) Lift the standard of (Esus4)love Obliterated, ridiculed have been My teachings by those fools themselves professing to be wise, selling for truth a pack of lies they claim their darkness to be light, declare their wrongs to be right & the only way of life So, I sent prophets, one by one, to show them that this can't be done: the Lord & Builder of the house expelled from His own & cast out they persecuted everyone, they even killed My very Son, how long will you go on? Mete out destruction, mete out the wind, a mighty hurricane is what you'll reap, & righteous judgment for your sins you self-righteous & foolish men, deceived by Satan & his kin: Be ready, for I'm bringing in the standard of love Prefer your neighbor to yourself & don't hurt anybody else for if you give you will receive; if you will live you must believe And man will reap what he will sow, this simple rule for all to know: that's the standard of love Do unto others as you would that they do to you; that is good And keep your brother fed & warm, don't wish upon them no ill nor harm No greater love has any man than he who would die for his friends That's the standard of love
(Lift the standard up, hold the standard up, raise the standard up, lift the standard of love....)
St. Francis’ Prayer There’s an old (D) song we used to (G) sing Called “All I (Bm) Want Is Serve The (G) King” God, how I long to feel that (D) way To want (G) nothing else but pour (F#/G) myself (Em) out for You (A) every (D) day I thought my foes had hoofs & hornes To vanquish each & everyone’s what I had sworn But no one came as close to putting out my fire As the most treacherous of all my enemies, my own desire (Chorus:) So, let me (Bm) give all I can (D) Let me no (Bm) longer seek to just re(F#m)ceive (A) Let me do (G)anything for any(D)one, any(Bm)where & let me (Em)pray with (F#/Dsus2) all my (G) heart (A) St. Francis’ (D) prayer Where there is hate, let me sow love Let me no longer seek to just be loved Where there is injury and pain Let me forgive again, again and again For it’s in giving we receive By letting go we find the treasures we most seek We’ll be forgiven as much as we forgive And it’s by dying that forever we live (Bridge:) Lord, (Bm) make me an instrument (A) of Your (D) peace (Bm) Let me bring light where (A) darkness (D) is Let (G) me, let (A) me (Chorus 2x)

Song)
In the distance I can see the sun arise and chase away the clouds of doom. Long before the daybreak darkness filled the sky but now you see the first flowers bloom. Glittering sunlight kisses my eyes and fills my mind with heavenly tunes. Everything the cold of winter put to sleep now comes to life with the first breath of June. Gone are the rainy days, summer has come and washed them away. Now winter's pain has paid for the life that's being born before our eyes.
Like a butterfly emerging from the dark of it's cocoon so summer's born. It's the promise of a new life without pain the curse removed, the bonds of death torn. Glittering sunlight touches my eyes and wipes away all doubts and fears. In the silence of the morning you can hear the voice of God whisper in your ears. Now all of creation groans longing to be freed from it's chains. Melt all the ice and snow, heavenly warmth, come, fill my everlasting days.

Take it by Faith Take it by faith that there is more to life than what you see Take it by faith there is a perfect plan for both, you & me Take it by faith that at the end of the road you`ll find all you dreamed Take it by faith that it all ain`t as bleak as right now it may seem Take it by faith, take it by faith Take it by faith that you` re becoming just what you were meant to be Take it by faith he that created you did it so perfectly Take it by faith this world `s a mere passage way to eternity Take it by faith there `s so much more for both, you & me Take it by faith, take it by faith (Bridge:) Take it by faith that we`re all much more than some accident in space That you`re in good hands by it is sheer amazing grace Take it by faith, take it by faith sure as a hammer hits He`s gonna right your wrongs Take it by faith there is place for you where you`ll feel you belong Take it by faith compared to forever this life isn`t very long, take it by faith (1st verse)
TALKIN’ ‘BOUT FAITH (Capo 2nd) I (G) used to think that strong is (C9) strong, & (Ds4) weak is weak (C9) But now I'm starting to see things quite differently That (Em/G) things are not always the (C9) way they (Ds2) seem to be (C9) below the surface there's a deeper mystery And though my ships come home with broken sails I will not quit for I know my God cannot fail Circumstances have become irrelevant when you leave everything inside His mighty hands (Chorus:) I'm talking 'bout faith - not faith in numbers but the unseen, yet almighty hand of God I'm walking by faith, though I may stumble I'll get up & keep on walking against all odds There is a way that seems right to many a man But before you leap, I'd say, better look again! That road to fame may turn out to be a dead end While God's way up is down, for His true mountain men Thank You, Jesus, Lord, You always win When we lose all, You still give us back everything We're persecuted, mocked & scorned, despised by men But that's no wonder; just like You, we'll rise again (Chorus) (add:) For eye has not seen & ear has not heard the wonderful things that God has prepared for those who hold on to His Word

The Birds Fly South
The birds fly south in autumn, & they return in spring So, when You will return, my Love, I will have learned to sing One night while I lay listening to some symphony or song I felt the fire glistening in my love's heartbeat strong A vision clearly struck me of things that are to be Of sceneries, like fairy tales in books our children read The birds fly south in winter, & I will fly to You At the carcass the eagles gather, so, will You call me, too?
The Busker's Song
Every night I sing and play guitar, take my music from bar to bar. I walk in, there they are, starin' at me like at some creature from Mars. I say "Hi!", they go "Huh, what's the freak up to, anyhow? Seems he don't quite know who we are: we're our town's intelligentsia!
Don't you know we're the coolcats, can't you see we're the cream of the town, won't you bow, to the Jet-set, we're the cool-gang, the insider crowd. Don't you know we're the coolcats, can't you see we're the cream of the town, won't you bow, we're the Jet-set, and we don't need no strangers around!"
I play my songs, just three or four, 'cause I know they can't take anymore, some pay and leave the scene of crime, before I can make 'em eke out a dime. When I'm done with the show, no one dares clap or say "bravo". Say "Don't you know who we are? We're our town's Saturday night disco stars
Don't you know we're the coolcats, can't you see we're the cream of the town,
won't you bow, we're the Jet-set, we're the cool-gang, the insider crowd. Don't you know we're the coolcats, can't you see we're the cream of the town, won't you bow, we're the Jet-set, and we don't need you strangers around!"
Every night I sing and play guitar I take my music from bar to bar. Well I don't care just who you are, whether king or queen or pope or czar. I know you're so intellectual, so educated, so critical. But when it comes down to this acting "cool": it's just yourselves you're tryin' to fool.
So you think you're the coolcats, so you think you're the cream of the town, well I think you're just bullheads, call it cool, man, I call it lukewarm. So you think you're the coolcats, so you think you're the cream of the town, well I think you're just bullheads,
all this coolness is bringin' me down.

I know it's hard when you don't have a reason Nothing to live for, nothing to believe in everyday's struggle to just keep existing I know how it feels accuse I've been through the same thing But then one day a friend & I were talking about religious trips & groups, you know, kind of joking He told me about the People of Love then We met the next day to go & see them I still remember it, how the door opened Two arms flung around me, a smile, a warm welcome True songs of life were sung, words of love spoken I was a lost sheep, my heart young & broken People bald hands & sang prayers before eating I knew that this was the love I'd been seeking & then they asked me if I would receive Him I didn't know but how could I resist Him (Chorus:) The day first believed in Him, I'll never forget it The day my new life did begin I'll never regret it The day I first believed in Him, the day I was born again Something inside me was suddenly changing And I came back almost every evening soon I quit dope, though at school friends were laughing Suddenly I knew my life had a meaning Never again I'd be tired of living Now I know all my mistakes are forgiven God fills with life every moment I'm breathing And I know I'm donna make it to heaven I know it's real & I really believe it It's nothing you must do, only receive it He’s knocking on your heart's door, of, can't you feel it If you just let Him in you'll be so glad for the day you first...

Tell ya somethin', I think the angels will love us for that Every Saint up in heaven's rejoicing, uh-huh, I think they're all tickled pink about that Yeah, the Man on the Top really digs what I'm doin', uh-huh, I think He really likes me for that I think He really loves me for that

He's going mad without a doubt He's pulling all his big guns out But there's nothing he can do he's just a raging fool and we're gonna stand our ground "Lucy in the sky" has gone electric: he's panicking and freaking out right now The battle got intense and rather hectic Won't be long till Jesus knocks him out (Chorus) Everytime the Devil pulls a smart one & thinks he's gonna score a point this time he finds himself out-smarted, licked & out-gunned So he'll just throw a fit & scream & whine (Ch.)

The Year Love Disappeared
There are some weird things happening in the World today It seems they're slowly taking all our sense away & though you still can't see the writing on the wall I know that time keeps ticking & a hard rain's gonna fall There are some bad birds hanging underneath the sky controlling wants & wishes while our feelings die & though we still can't see the end, it's getting clear to see we're living in the year love disappeared This is the year we learned to run I knew someday it had to come This is the year we always feared This is the year love disappeared All those tv commercials have programmed our kids to thinking getting rich is really all there is this is the decade when material things replaced our need for love & closed our minds to values from above
Thief In The Night
He came, He came like a thief in the night He came like a thief in the night We were all like zombies, we were hypnotized by that tv happiness & Hollywood lies Oh, we were all too busy lovin' ourselves & we had turned this World into a piece of hell Yeah, we had all been blinded by the Serpent's light until He came, He came like a thief in the night (Chorus) Yeah, we had craved for power, our lust was greed We were fanatical egotists, spilled the seed We wore with pride the tattoo beneath our skin We'd built a raging kingdom we were servants in Where every right was wrong & every wrong was right until He came, He came like a thief in the night

Tiempo del Fin
Manana la vida será mas facil de lo que es hoy dia se piensa el idiota que ignora las senas de la sombra oscura La guerra avanza y pronto nos traerá la última etapa y parte del tiempo del fin La Bestia subirá del agua de muchos pueblos y gentes y harà la guerra en contra de los que tienen el testimonio de vida se abrirá el libro de las palabras de vida del Cordero, pues, es el tiempo del fin Profetas de los siglos heacharon sombras de hoy en sus profecías Perdidos los almas de los que siguen al hijo de la perdicion Benditos los muertos que mueren en el Senor desde ahora, ya que es el tiempo del fin Benditos los muertos que en el Senor mueren de ahora Benditos los muertos que mueren en el Senor
How well do you really know the heart of your wife, the heart of your husband, the heart of your child? How well do we really know the heart of God? How much do you really take time to find out the souls of your loved ones and what they're about? How well do you really hear the voice of God? How well can you really hear their innermost cries their deep, secret longings & hidden desires? How much can we really say that we love the least of our brethren the way we'd love God (Ch.:) It takes (C) time to learn to (Fmaj7) love and that's the one (Am) thing that we're all running (Fmaj7) out of It takes time to learn to care to really tune in, realize they are there So (C) why do (Dm7) we al(Em7)low our ene(Fmaj7)my to steal from us the one thing that we need to learn, to see, to hear & feel & really be 'cause love is spelled t.i.m.e. (Give'em your time!) For what do I really care, immortal souls or fragile possessions, and temporal goals? How much can I really say I'm putting first things first? How much do I really invest in the stocks that won't crash? Do I build on the Rock? How much do I really pour into the values that will last?
Oughtta be hittin' the road, oughtta be hittin' a load of folks out there today Got something stuck in my throat somebody don't want me to get anywhere today So I'm-a pull out my keys and I'm a-stickin' my sword in the face of the Enemy After all, am I free, or am I free, or am I free, or am I free? Free to go where He shows, free to be who my Lord tells me to be today Free to do what He says free enough to serve Him, free to obey If I don't make any sense is it possible friends you have not yet looked God's way? But if you lend me a hand He can teach you to stand upon His rock today (Ch.:) Cause today is the day Love can show you the way and no matter what they do our say Today's the tomorrow you dreamed of yesterday the sun shines, a good time to make hay yes, today is a good day to live and a good day to give all you got, today Love is more than a pond, it's an ocean upon which we all can sail away it's as big as the sun & you can change anyone with just one of its rays Come & let's make a move, come & get with a groove, things are gonna be okay It's not a hard one to choose what have you got to lose, c'mon let's have some fun today
TODAY IT ALL MAKES SENSE
Memories of mine painted in shades of grey Times I thought I would not see the light of day Growin’ up’s a hard task when you don’t know why Or if there’s any purpose in the tears we cry Meanwhile I’ve learned trials are often heaven –sent Though most times you don’t know what’s comin’ ‘round the bend When the night is darkest, give it one more try Even if you don’t care if you live or die (CHORUS:) But I can see it now, finally it’s all so clear (it all makes sense) Now, that the sun broke through the clouds & made them disappear Yes, I can see it now, finally it all makes sense Those deep & dark turns in life’s road that I went thru’ Today it all makes sense Though tomorrow’s not visible to our eyes I know, I know someone in whose hands it lies Faith & trust are hard to keep when no one’s there Until you finally see there’s help from everywhere (CHORUS:) (last Chorus:) But I can see it now, finally it’s all so clear (it all makes sense) Now, that the sun broke through the clouds & made them disappear .....the way you put me to the test ‘cause you knew how it would end .....my life’s road with all it’s bends Yes, every lesson you had to put me thru’, //: Today it all makes sense://
United we'll stand but divided we'll fall that's why we simply must stick together Together we're great, separated we're small we've got to fight and march on together Let's choose to win for the sake of us all let's choose to run, win, work, stand together Let's do our best to heed and answer the call for unity and let's walk together (Chorus:) For the sake of you, for the sake of me for the sake of all: let's get together For the sake of truth, for the sake of peace for the sake of love let's get together You and me, we were meant to be one because we'll be much stronger together A three-fold chord can't easily be undone That's why we've got to hold on together Let's become like the Father and Son as They are One, let's all be together Let's not falter but stick to our guns Let's be in heart, mind, soul, truth, together (Ch.) We've got the answers to the world's problems but only if we stay together We've got the power to master the hurdles but only if we take them together You and me, sister, may never be perfect but we can rise above sin together You and me brother, will never be heard if we won't join hands and sing together (Ch.2x)
To My Family When you were born you filled my life with joy on that cool autumn morn My little girl, my precious gift of love, you came, so sweet Your little eyes exploring all around you, always open wide Such lively eyes, intensely studying everything they'd see I sang & danced those first days of your life, holding you in my arms I still recall singing to you, rocking you to sleep Now time has passed & I've watched you learning how to walk & talk & now my love, you’re even learning how to write and read And someday soon you'll have grown up and maybe you will hear this song Remember that you’ll always be the girl that one day came from Heaven to me My little boy, red cheeks, big eyes, you're truly any father's joy Can laugh, can cry, & sometimes you don't know which of the two You grow so fast that when I've gone a few days I feel years have passed But even then you cuddle up, I'm still daddy to you you're showing me my weaknesses & strengths just like a mirror's glass for you reflect the love, the joy, the pain that we show you And yes, I know, together we will always be in heart & soul & though sometimes you're not with me, my son, you can be sure I'll always love you My little wife, mother of my children, partner of my life you hold me tight, assuring me each day & every night You're loving me, putting up with my faults & helping me I couldn't see where I would be without you today And if sometimes it got too hard to bear when things just weren't right I thank you now for that you stayed & stuck it out with me My faithful one, we've surely come a long way since our love began And I believe we'll always be a true family & now we wait for number three And yes, no matter what may come, whether ill, death or harm we'll sail through the storm & be safe His arms

Welcome To The Rhythm (from the album “Rhythm Of Life”)
Dec.12 1994 by Dave Mendoza
As I sit here by this bed in which you’re waiting to be born So many things in my head, holding on to your sweet mom Wondering if you’re a boy or a girl, a rough little gem or smooth pearl Will your hair be straight or curled? Either way, we’ll always give you all the love in this world (Chorus:) Welcome to the rhythm, welcome to the tune Welcome to this world which you’re about to know so soon Welcome to the outside, welcome to the light Welcome to the music, welcome to the rhythm of life!

Where Grey Skies Won't Go
I grew up in a grey sky town, lots of people with grey sky frowns, man, I tell you, they bring you down, them grey sky blues.
Traveled far to a southern land where the nights are much longer and you see smiles in the warm white sand and the skies are blue.
Now some folks say there's no place like home, but I'd say depends on where you're born, 'cause I feel just like a southern man who'd vote for grey skies to be banned.
So take me where the golden sunsets glow, where the sky is blue and the palm trees grow, that is where I will call my home, there where life's still worth living, where the sun shines and grey skies won't go.
I grew tired of black chimney smoke, fourtyfive year olds dyin' of stroke, I said, God must be kiddin', I hope make those grey skies move.
Man I barely turned seventeen, I was no longer to be seen
in the land governed by machines where the grey skies rule.
Now I know some people just don't care whether they breathe in smoke or air, but I wanna sleep 'neath a starry sky where the moonlight lingers in my lover's eyes.
So take me where the golden sunsets glow, where the sky is blue and the palm trees grow, that is where I will call my home, there where life's still worth living, where the sun shines and grey skies won't go, where the grey skies won't go, where the grey skies won't go, the grey skies won't go, grey skies won't go.
WHO YOU ARE (capo 4th fret) (Intro: Am-F-G-Am-G-F 2x) (Chorus:) (Am) You don’t have to (F) hate your(G)self (Am) ‘cause I love you the (G) way you (F) are More than status, power, fame or wealth, in My world you are a star To really live means to become what I see you already are Don’t let your heart get hard and numb, come & let Me show you who you are Who you are So many you cry because you feel unloved and useless So many times you wonder why you’re made the way you are But you don’t have to be ashamed of all those hurts & bruises You don’t have to hide your scars (G/a) Let Me show you what I (As2) see when I look at you Let Me set your trapped mind free and know you’re beautiful To become what you must be, just accept that all is (C) well And that includes the way you (E) are, so let it be, love, let it (Am) be (Chorus) If I believe in you, can’t you believe Me for you, too? Believe in that I knew what I did when I chose you (Chorus) It’s okay to love yourself, it’s okay to trust in who you are You don’t have to hate yourself, ‘cause you’re made and loved the way you are It’s okay to love yourself, come & let Me show you who you are Who you are Who you are Who you are Who you are
Will You Marry Me
I never thought it would come to this But you bewitched me with your kiss //: will you marry me? :\\ I swore I’d never say that line But here I go for the second time: //: will you marry me? :\\ (Chorus:) Will you marry me up in the canyon, by the brook? Will you marry me beneath the angels` smiling looks? Will you marry me & may our witness be the One Who makes our love each day as if it’s only just begun I thought I’d never say these words I felt were just for fools & nerds, will you marry me? I’ve been a coward all my life How come I didn’t run this time, will you ... (2nd Chorus:) Will you marry me beneath the shade of some old tree? Will you marry me, the stars, the mountains, you & me Will you marry me in that most peculiar style? I’ve got this feeling you and me, will stick together for a while (3rd Chorus:) Will you marry me before the dusk turns into day? Will you marry me & sing our “I’ll Be On My Way”? Will you marry me cause` you don’t care what people say Cause I love you & you love me & what else really matters anyway?
Winning Team I'd vote for you if you would run for president I'd have you elected as my queen I'd choose you any day over the government 'cause you're the sweetest boss I've ever seen (Ch.:) Cause, Baby, I think you & me, we are a winning team It's true, you see, you can have the driver's seat Cause all we need is love and unity and some humility for us to become a winning team The same goes for our brothers, sisters, all our friends who're with us, trying to change the world with love If we will stick together till the very end our King will find us joined as one when He'll come from above Cause brother, I think you... (Chorus)
Wisdom Tell me, who is She that talks to & soothes the wind & the fire & the rain Gives me Her comfort & touches me, heals me & eases my every pain Is She a woman, a spirit, some magic or only a mystical dream ? I’ve known Her since I was a child, so I know that she must be reality Oh, I can feel Her, oh, I can breath Her Oh, & I know I’m not alone on this lonesome road Once in a vision I thought I had seen just a glimpse of Her smiling at me The beauty & grace of Her facial expression is something I will always see Sometimes at night in the stillness I hear Her like whispering into my ears Wonderful words of Her wisdom that fill me with peace when I know She’s near Oh, I can hear Her, want to be near Her Never want Her to let me go Once in a summer I thought that I heard Her like singin’ a lovely refrain Of all of the wonders & miracles of life & repeat it again & again Spirit of freedom & love, Queen of Heaven, oh Mother of all that is life Oh, for my heart to be filled with Your wisdom, Your truth to enlighten my eyes Oh, I can see Her, feel & perceive Her in every miracle of life
Woe! When the (Am) children of Zion (G) dream about the (F) Matrix (Am) Trading truth & (G) love for the (F) Big Lie & (Em) hatred Des(Am)pising their own (G) heritage & (F) think it’s rather odd It’s (Am) hard, (G) hard, (Am) When the children of David bow down & worship mammon They stop living the Law of Love, having all things in common When money is the thing of which they just can’t get enough It’s tough, tough, tough (Chorus:) (F) Lord, forgive us for we’ve strayed & (Am) heal us from our sin (G) Help us get back on the way for (Am) we’re destined to win (F) Free us from the bondage of the (Am) Devil and his kin (G) Help us wipe off from his face that (Em) evil, wicked (E) grin When the children of the Kingdom go astray and follow Satan Down the broad way, through the wide gate of those who’ll only betray them When sheep put on the clothes of wolves, pretending they’re so bad It’s sad, sad, sad When the New Church of the Lamb has lost ist purpose & the vision And the multitudes are still lost in the vale of indecision Cuase the shepherds have not come to tenderly gather them in It’s sin, sin sin (Chorus:) (F) Lord, forgive us for we’ve strayed & (Am) heal us from our sin (G) Help us get back on the way for (Am) we’re destined to win (F) Free us from the bondage of the (Am) Devil and his kin (G) Help us wipe off from his face that (Em) evil, wicked (E) grin (Bridge:) (G) Break us and re-make us and wake (F) us up from our (Am) sleep (G) For we have to warn the world & (F) find His little (Am) sheep (G) With the keys of destiny there’s (F) nothing we can’t (Am) do We’ll (G) rise above and overcome and (E) win the World for You (Chorus 2x)
Worthy (2.Samuel 22:2,4,7,33) The (A) LORD (E) is my (D) rock, and my (C#m) fortress, (D) and my de(E)liverer God is my strength and power: and He maketh my way perfect. (Chorus:) (D) I will call on the (E)LORD, Who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and He did hear my voice out of His temple, and my cry did enter into His ears. (Ch.) Who is worthy to be praised (2x) Thou art worthy to be praised You are worthy to be praised
Yearn for You (April 08)
Every day has a new riddle for me Like crawling through a fog on hands and knees Question marks in the dark Where's the spark that will just shine enough light on the shadowy path before me? There are many things I just can't see unless You reveal them to me I've no clue where to go, what to do unless You show me & lead me & guide me Oh, Jesus, (Chorus:) I yearn for You I'm burning to learn so much more from You Teach me, Lord, let Your Word make my world more like Yours Open my eyes and my heart, Lord and teach me to see I want to be so much more like You, Jesus Change my heart, give me a new start, a new part to play in this mystery called life Jesus, show me the way! Every day brings a new challenge to me like a new prison from which to break free Whispers and voices surrounding me pointing in different directions in my quest & search for the key (mod.) There are many things I just can't see unless You reveal them to me I've no clue where to go, what to do unless You show me & lead me & guide me Oh, Jesus, (Chorus) Put the right words on my lips to say Be my way, make my day fill every moment with Your light, Your love & Your presence Oh, Jesus, (Chorus)
You (Living God)
Oh You are my sunshine, you are my life Oh, You give me comfort from all my strife You enlighten my hours, both, day & night You’ve wiped away all of those tears from my eyes -- You are a rainbow, you made the flowers, you made the butterflies You are my Angel, You are my Lover, Your Spirit takes me so high You set me on fire, You gave me light You encouraged my heart in the deepest night Oh, You show all the wonders of life to me You shared all the secrets of life with me -- You taught me the dance & You taught me to sing You taught me to love & to give You taught me to cheer up a broken man’s heart You’re the first One who taught me to live Oh, You make me happy You make me sing You fill up my heart like a deep blue spring Oh, You are the meaning of life to me & now, rise up again & make love to me -- Over the hills and over the trees, over the mountains so high Over the rivers and over the waters on wings of the spirit we fly, high (1st verse) Oh, Jesus, the Son of the Living God, Praise be unto Your name, oh, Living God!
Yeah, I've been told before, "There's nothing worth searchin' for, There’s no reason to believe In things that you cannot see." But when I look up to the stars, Amazed at the myst'ry that we are And the beauty that I feel, Op.1: That's all the reason I need. Op.2: I'm so convinced You are real. Op.3: My heart sings out, "You are real!" Chorus 1 Jesus, You're the One I need, You're the One I've been looking for. You see, I couldn’t find an open door, And I heard that You’ve got the keys. Jesus, You're the One I want To take me to Your fancy restaurant Up in the Place they call heavenly. Would you keep a table for me? Jesus, You're the One I need. Verse 2 With not a place to go, Many things I still don't know. Barely see the road in front of me, There's too much fog there to see. Come and shine Your light Into my heart & set things right, Make me part of Your family; So glad that You've rescued me. (Repeat Chorus 1) Bridge Let them have their loud, empty places, Filled with meaningless faces. I still know that my place is Somewhere higher than that. Let them keep their nasty illusions, Their brains stuffed with confusion. There’s one simple solution, And I'll just leave it at that: Chorus 2 Jesus is the One you need, He's the One you've been looking for. You see, you couldn't find an open door, But I tell ya, He's got the keys. Yeah, He's the One you want To take you to His fancy restaurant Up in the Place beyond the blue, He's got a table for you. Jesus is the One you need,
YOU’RE THE AIR THAT I BREATHE (C9) Lord, You're so gracious to (Em/G) me, You are all I can (F/G) see made me more than I (Gsus4) ever asked to be Lord, You're all that I am, You do all that I can't You're the beginning & end of my story (C9) You're in all I (Am7) do, I'm nothing without (F/G) You I'm just a helpless (Gsus4) fool without Your love You're my Destiny, Yours I'm meant to be You're the air that I breathe, Jesus, You're better than a dream You're life's purpose to (Em/G) me, I am totally free being tied to You's all I want to be I'm perplexed by Your ways, You turned my night into day took my burden away, You rescued me For eterni(Am7) ty, Yours I'm meant to be I was blind, now I see Your majesty Without You life was pain, now I'm born again You're the air that I breathe, Jesus, You're better than a dream (Br.:) (Am7) Though Life still ain't (Em) perfect & there may be (Fmaj7) battles at every (C) turn I now know what I'm fighting for & with (G) You there's nothing I can't learn (First verse)
You Shed Light Into My Heart (Thanks to You) Could I forget, would it be fair to let it slip my mind, all the things that you & I have gone through? There's no regret, nor can I fail ever to mention thank you for the way that you have made my life true Thanks to you I love this life Thanks to you I found my part Thanks to you I found my way You shed light into my heart Now I walk, my head held high, ever facing towards the Son Share with me the love of life, feel forever just begun
You Won't Ever Be The Same I had such a very broken heart, everything I dreamed fell apart couldn't find another start, oh no I, deep down inside was so alone, in spite of all the things owned kept on looking for a way back home Then I still clearly remember the day when the Son came into my life set me free from care & strife, turned my darkness to light and chased the dark clouds all away Now I won't ever be the same again my heart cracked open & love came Now want to tell the World & sing That all life’s reason is in loving Him Now you, I turn around & look at you because you're seeming just as blue as me before I was born anew You see, this love, isn't just for me but it can also set you free & lift your life into the heavenlies So why, why don't you Just give it a try? You hear him knocking at your heart He'll give your life another start, although you're torn apart And a love that will never die And you won't ever be the same again If you just open up & let Him in Then you'll want to tell the World & sing that all life's reason is in loving Him

Bald Bald kommst Du zurück & holst mich ab in der Entrückung in der Nacht wenn Du das Glück nach dem wir uns sehnen vollkommen machst Und bald wird auch der Fluch behoben sein der auf uns lastet wie ein Stein wir werden endlich und für immer frei sein und vereint wenn Du kommst wenn Du kommst Bald wischst Du die letzte Träne fort wenn wir Dich seh'n an jenem Ort an dem Du zu Beginn die Welten erschufst durch Dein Wort und bald wird alles Tote auferstehen und neues Leben wird erblüh'n und offenbar jedes Geheimnis das wir nicht verstehen wenn Du kommst wenn Du kommst Bald - ein neuer Anfang für die Welt wenn die Zeit selbst plötzlich anhält & Du uns zu Dir rufst, hinauf in's off'ne Himmelszelt Und bald wird Frieden herrschen wo einst Krieg aller Hass von Sanftmut besiegt Wenn jedes Auge dieser Welt endlich Dein Licht erblickt wenn Du kommst wenn Du kommst wenn Du kommst wenn Du kommst
Bin ich jetzt ein Terrorist? Bin ich jetzt ein Terrorist weil ich für eure Riesentraumfabrik einfach zu wach bin? Weil ich das was ihr uns eintrichtern wollt nicht schluck‘, sondern sag‘, „So’n Schwachsinn!“? Steh‘ ich jetzt auf eurer schwarzen Liste weil ich nur allzu gerne wüsste wie ich dem ganzen Schrott-System meinen Mittelfinger zeig‘? Werd‘ ich jetzt von euch geächtet weil ich mein gutes Recht verfechte zu tun & lassen und zu glauben was ich schlicht und einfach tun, und glauben mag? Seid ihr jetzt gar sehr empört weil es mich ganz heftig stört dass ihr uns betäubt, belügt & aussaugt; von früh bis spät bespitzelt, ausraubt, versucht uns in den Schlaf zu wiegen, den letzten Freiheitsdrang besiegen, benutzt wie eine wegwerfbare Batterie? Würdet ihr mich jetzt gern zerquetschen, eliminieren und zerfetzen, die nackte Wahrheit ausradier’n? Ich sag‘ euch gleich, das schafft ihr nie! Für jeden von uns den ihr töten werdet verliert ihr tausend eurer Herde dein Hass bringt dich unter die Erde, du großer Sonnengott, ich prophezei‘ dir deinen Fall Du kamst herab, du Stern des Morgens, wolltest dir die Welt mal eben borgen „Wer braucht den Himmel wenn man Hölle haben kann?“ Bin ich jetzt ein Terrorist weil ich schrei, „Bezahlt die GEZ nicht!“ Bezahlst du deinen Nachbarn etwa auch dafür dass sein Hund in deinen Garten kacken darf? Meine Ohren sind Geschwülste, wund und taub von dem Gesülze mit dem ihr uns tagein tagaus schier bombardiert Werd‘ ich jetzt auf das Schafott kommen weil ich sag‘ „Boykottiert die Tkom!“ oder „Leute, stoppt das Ferkel!“ „Poli-ticker sind Null-Blicker!“ „Herr Professor, Sie sind im Irrtum!“ „Herr Doktor, Sie sind Quacksalber! Schluck‘ deine Medizin doch selber oder amputiert euch doch mal selbst das falsche Bein!“? Ihr habt Denjenigen verachtet Der euch den Sinn des Lebens brachte, wolltet Ihn in eine Schachtel stecken in ein Haus mit vielen bunten Ecken mit Orgelsound am Sonntag Morgen und Glockenklang So wahr Er auferstanden ist, ich bin wie Er kein Terrorist, zumindest keiner der mit Spielzeugwaffen kämpft Sein Wort ist meine Munition. Sag‘ jetzt nicht gleich, „Ach, kenn‘ ich schon!“ Denn du weisst nichts und das was du zu wissen glaubst hat man dir nur einverleibt Und wenn du denkst ich bin voll panne und hab‘ wohl einen an der Kanne dann pass‘ mal schön auf was noch bald vor uns geschieht: Wiev iel Eier kannst du kochen, wieviele Tage oder Wochen wirst du überleben wenn man dir den Stecker zieht? Wenn jeder Laden an der Ecke ganz einfach zu ist, Mann, verrecke! Die Welt ist eh‘ überbevölkert - oder nicht? Man muss die Massen dezimieren und das Gesindel eliminieren. Gestern die Juden, morgen die Christen und alle ander’n Terroristen und dann, was dann? Wie fein und, ach, wie toll wird’s sein: Dann läuten wir die neue Ära des großen Führers aller Heere, die langersehnte, wunderschöne neue Weltordnung - ganz ohne Bargeld - ein.
Receive the Mark, or die!
Der Feind Der Krieg um eure Seelen der vor langer Zeit begann kommt langsam zum Finale das das Gute längst gewann Der Feind hockt direkt vor euch auf einem schönen Tisch ein Schrein in eurem Heiligtum – doch ihr erkennt ihn nicht Er stiehlt euch eure Kinder, er stiehlt euch eure Zeit er stiehlt euch eure Meinung, macht sich in euren Köpfen breit Er sagt euch wie ihr sein müsst um cool und „in“ zu sein und nistet sich in jeder kleinsten Faser eures Wesens ein Er definiert euch neu die Wahrheit, Ethik, Moral, und zwar genau und wer von dieser Gerade abweicht, der wird schon seh’n, das war nicht schlau Diktiert Gedanken und Gefühle, eure Gewohnheiten auch denn er weiss alles was ihr jemals wolltet (oder etwa nicht?) und braucht Er zeigt dir endlos schöne Bilder & singt dich täglich in den Schlaf Bestimmt wann du Adrenalin brauchts & lachen oder weinen darfst Er raubt euch eure Energien, ihr Geiseln eurer eig’nen Couch Wann schnippt er wohl mit seinem Finger: „Es ist vorbei. Wacht auf!“? Er ist kein Mensch und doch ganz viele, und hat doch nich ein Herz gehabt er ist ein Ding, eine Maschine: euer heissgeliebter Fernsehapparat Wenn dir das Wörtchen „Freiheit“ lieb ist, dann geb‘ ich dir den guten Rat: Lass‘ dich nicht länger mehr versklaven, steh‘ auf und geh‘, schreite zur Tat Und hol‘ die Axt aus deinem Keller, zieh‘ ihm den Stecker ‘raus und, Mann, dann hau‘ das Ding in tausend Stücke & fang‘ ein neues Leben an!
Der Schmerz der Andern

(Ref.:) Den Schmerz all (F#m) derer die's ver(A)sucht haben, und nicht ge(E)schafft & jener die (F#) Hände voll trübem (A) Wasser trinken, statt (E) Seen aus purem (B) Saft Die Stimme wird (A) stärker, die mich fragt, "Hey, was hast du (B) heute getan das einen (F#m) Unterschied (E) macht?" Die Trommelfelle tun mir noch weh von der Musik und dem netten Applaus Doch spätestens um viertel vor vier geh ich allein nach haus Ich denk' darüber nach was wohl geschieht, meine Gedanken wandern Ich kann ihn einfach nicht ignorier'n...

Du lebst Wenn jemand sich entschließt zu leben, zu lernen, zu lieben, zu geben. Wenn jemand den Einblick in's Geheimnis erfasst, dann wird er von manchen geliebt & von vielen gehasst Wenn Du aufhören willst zu kriechen, versuchst einen Stern zu erreichen Dann wird dir von manchen ein Tor aufgemacht wirst von einer Handvoll gelobt & von den Massen verlacht Doch du kannst sie nicht einmal hören Dein Blick ist fixiert auf dein Ziel Du lässt dich von niemandem stören weder hindern noch ablenken, von ihrem Spiel- du steigst Bereit sein sich selbst zu verlieren bedeutet zu seh'n zu kapieren Es gilt größ'res zu finden als lediglich sich selbst Lass los & steh nackt vor dem Licht. dem Schöpfer der Welt Und lass' dich von Ihm inspirieren, du weißt, es gibt nichts das nicht geht. Was hast du schon zu verlieren? Dein Stolz ist es, der deinem Glück widersteht Drum lass' einfach los, bevor du dich versiehst: So wahr du in dieser Welt lebst- ich schwör dir, du schwebst Drum lass dich vom Leben verführen den Wundern & Rätseln die es ständig gibt Lass dich von der Liebe berühren Wenn du weißt du wirst bedingungslos geliebt dann freu dich: du lebst MP3

Du rast wie der Wind (Em) So, du glaubst du hast (C) Pech gehabt und, nun, es (G) kam halt wie es (D) kam Du stehtst nicht gern als Versager da, doch was dir abgeht ist dein Charme Und wo sind nur all die Leute hin mit denen alles möglich war? Du siehst, die Zeit hat dich eingeholt, du stehst mit leeren Händen da Und was nun? Gibst du (C) auf oder bringst du zu (G) Ende was du einst an(D)gefangen (Em) hast? Dieser ewige Schwachsinn raubt dir noch die Sinne, Mädel, pass auf was du machst Du gehörst nicht hier hin, also falte die Hände und bete dass, wenn du gehst du irgend einen Ort, irgend einen Platz findest, nun tret schon auf's (Ds4) Gas (Ref.:) Du rast wie der (G) Wind & hoffst (F#/Ds2) niemand er(Em)kennt dass du (D) keiner von (C) ihnen bist, 's nie (B/G) wirst und nie (Ds4) warst Du gehörst nicht hier hin, drim renn' Baby, renn' auch wenn jeder hier dich nur einen Feigling nennt Du rast wie der Wind Irgendwie ist es komisch, wie schwer es oft ist sich eizugestehen dass du ziemlich weit von dem Weg abkamst den du einst auszogst zu geh'n Und wie lang' es immer dauert bis man bereit ist einzusehen Wir haben alle viel Mist gebaut, was gibt's daran nicht zu versteh'n Aber du bist spezial, auf deine Weise genial, auch wenn du jetzt sagst, "Der spinnt!" Dir ist sicherlich klar, du bist das was du warst: schon immer ein ganz besond'res Kind Auf deine eigene Art bist du echt wunderbar auch wenn du manchmal ganz grundlos ausklinkst Das ist mir ganz egal, ich bin nur für dich da, & ich folge dir nach (Ref.)

Es gibt ein Gebot (Thou Shalt Love) Sehr geehrter Herr - 'ch mein' - Mister President könnt' es sein dass jemand hier das Ziel verkennt? Du laberst auf uns ein, wie's Politiker halt tun und du erzählst uns, bis die Übeltat bestraft ist, wird dein Zorn niemals ruh'n Der Krieg macht sich bezahlt und ist gut für's Geschäft Vor allem dort wo Öl sich leicht entbehren lässt Deinem Volk ist's ja egal ob du korrupt bist und brutal solange du nur weiter vorgibst du liebst Jesus statt Krösus gewinnt jeder Trottel die Wahl Doch was dir entgeht ist was geschrieben steht: "Es gibt ein Gebot: lieb' Gott und deinen Nächsten wie dich selbst" - so wie dich selbst "Es gibt ein Gebot: lieb' Gott und deinen Nächsten wie dich selbst" - nichts and'res zählt Ich muss sagen, du bist wirklich ganz schön abgebrüht so wie du das Blau schier aus dem Himmel lügst Du bist zwar nicht der erste der das wirklich super kann und bestimmt auch nicht der letzte der uns weis machen will dass wenn man den Feind killt, hilft's dem Land Was dir entgeht ist was geschrieben steht (Ref.) Einzig und allein was wir in Liebe tun bleibt je besteh'n auch lang nachdem der Vorhang fällt Nur wie du den geringsten deiner Brüder hier behandelt hast, ist was in Gottes Augen zählt Glaubst du denn der Himmel wär für die die keine and're Lösung kennen als den Krieg?
Ganz nah Ganz nah, ich brauch' Dich ganz nah Wenn ich Dich nicht bei mir spür' bin ich nicht ganz da Ganz nah, ich brauch' Dich ganz nah Lass mich Dein Herz in meinem klopfen fühl'n sag' mir, was ist wahr Bist Du so weit weg wie sie's uns einreden wollen? Sind wir bloß ein Stück Dreck, dem Urschleim Zufall entronnen? Sind wir nur ein Patent - 'ne Art Massenproduktion? Oder bin ich Dein Kind und vielleicht wartest Du schon? (Ref.) Sind wir vorprogrammiert dazu uns selbst zu zerstör'n oder sind wir bestimmt dazu zu Dir zu gehör'n? Hast Du uns gar schon satt oder fängst Du jetzt erst an uns zu zeigen was Deine Liebe bewirken kann? (Ref.) Sag', bist Du die Liebe Selbst, so wie Dein Buch Dich beschreibt oder ein Supergehirn das hier sein Unwesen treibt? Ist Dein Name Jehovah, Krishna, Buddha, Allah oder bist Du der zu dem uns're Seele ausruft, "Papa!"? (Ref.)
Glauben heisst Sehen Ich dachte immer schwach ist schwach und stark ist stark doch heut' hab' ich gelernt, nee, das war alles Quark Gegebenheiten sind nämlich bedeutungslos denn Gott macht große Leute klein und kleine groß Drum, kehrt mein Schiff auch mit gebroch'nen Masten heim so werd' ich nicht verzagen sondern Ihm vertrau'n Denn nichts scheint wie es ist und nichts ist wie es scheint Unter der Oberfläche kann es oft ganz anders sein Denn Glauben heisst seh'n, wenn auch ganz anders nämlich mit Augen die das Unsichtbare seh'n Hör' auf zu verstehen um zu glauben sondern glaube um am Ende zu versteh'n Da ist ein Weg der scheint den Menschen recht zu sein Jedoch am Ende fliegt er in die Patsche rein Bevor du springst guck lieber vorher noch mal hin und denk' dran dass bei Gott die Dinge anders sind Danke Jesus, dass Du stets gewinnst Du findest uns auch wenn wir schier verloren sind Werden wir auch verfolgt, verspottet, ausgelacht Du bist und bleibst Der der aus allem Gutes macht (Ref.)

Ob du’s glaubst oder nicht, es gibt ein ewiges Licht Heller als das Licht der Sonne und doch blendet es nicht Ob du’s glaubst oder nicht, & auch wenn du Ihn nicht siehst Er ist die große Liebe von der du immer liest Ob du’s glaubst oder nicht, nur in Seinem Gesicht Wirst du die Liebe finden die niemals erlischt Ob du’s glaubst oder nicht, bevor alles zerbricht Wird sich zeigen ob’s klug war zu glauben oder nicht (Ref.)
Herrenrasse? Und das ist also die Herrenrasse „Ein Snickers, und zwar JETZT!“ - Gott wie ich sie hasse Der Trendschmied der mich rügt wenn ich den Juden in mir zu sehr raushängen lasse Der Besoff`ne der mit glasigem Blick drauf wartet dass ich Ihm sein nächstes Bier verpasse. Herrenrasse? Dass ich nicht lache. Wenn ihr die Welt beherrschen wollt, dann steckt mich lieber in’s KZ! Erschießt oder vergast mich, macht aus mir `ne Lampe für neben’s Bett! Das ist sie nun: die Herrenrasse ne Horde wilder Säufer, ungelehrt & arrogant.

Es ist doch heut' so kalt. Ich weiß, wir diskutieren gern, manchmal tagein tagaus und legen uns dabei die Wahrheit oft von neuem aus Doch währenddessen, irgendwo dort in der dunklen Nacht irrt jemand der zu uns gehört, der Gott noch nicht gefunden hat Drum lasst uns uns zusammentun und aufhör'n mit dem Streit und Jesus helfen, ihn zu finden; ich höre wie Er weint: (Ref.:) Ich rufe dich, ja dich dort draussen in der Dunkelheit Ich werde geh'n um dich zu finden, ganz egal wie weit Ich rufe dich, ja dich, der du umher irrst in der Nacht und wenn du Meine Stimme hörst, dan folg' ihr bis der Morgen lacht Ich weiss dass du dort draussen bist, verloren und allein Doch wenn du Meiner Stimme folgst, dann find' Ich dich bestimmt und führ' dich heim Drum sing' ich dieses Lied für euch, die ihr dort draussen seid Du weisst vielleicht nicht wo du hingehörst, doch mit der Zeit wirst du die Stimme Gottes auch in deinem Herzen hör'n und wenn du Seine Stimme hörst und ihr gehorchst, o kleines Lamm, ich weiss genau: Er findet dich bestimmt und führt dich heim (Ref.)

Ich werd’ hier noch total verrückt denn alles schreit nur " Geld ist Glück" Wo sind nur die Tage hin als wir noch suchten einen Sinn Bruder, Schwester, bin ich tot? Sonst helft mir doch in meiner Not Und sagt mir ... MP3
Schieb’ Liebe in dein Herz Raff´ dich mal auf & schieb` Liebe in dein Herz Wach endlich auf und schieb Liebe (You gotta shove the love) Das beste Input für den Durchblick Die love-mega-power-zip disc (Ch. Var.:) Mach dich mal auf ... Das Zeug ist nämlich echt nicht ohne Das Chappi für meine Kanone (Chorus x2) (rap:) Love, the power that does unite The hearts of both, this, & the other side If you think that you can, like some do, do without Tell you man, you are in for a mighty shout Love alone is the thang that it`s all about Like milk with cookies `stead of brussel sprouts S` shove it in, turn it on, spread it all around Open up, shove the love & then give it out C`mon, open up & shove love into your heart Come on, wake up you gotta shove the love `til all get enough (2x + Chorus x2, whistle) MP3
Schon immer Du bist die schönste Blume in meinem Garten Auf dich hab’ ich schon so schrecklich lang gewartet Du bist der Regenbogen an meinem Himmel Ohne dich wär’ meine Seele schon längst verschimmelt (Chorus:) Denn du bist stark, du bist real Du bist immer für mich da Du hältst mich fest, ich bin nicht allein Ich glaub` nichts könnt’ besser sein als deine Liebe Du bist die Kirsche auf meiner Geburtstagstorte Ich glaub’ es gibt echt nur eine von deiner Sorte Mensch, wo bist du nur dermaßen lang geblieben? Wie konnt’ ich einst leben ohne dich zu lieben? (2.Chorus:) Doch ich kann dich seh’n wie du vor mir stehst Du lässt mich nie alleine geh’n Du fängst mich auf, du bist mein Zuhaus’ Mit dir kann ich alles klarer seh’n Ich glaub’ ich schwebe Das Leben liegt vor mir wie eine Riesenwelle Komm’ wir zieh’n uns aus und spring` n rein Halt so, auf die Schnelle „Ich hab` keine Lust“ ist ein Satz den ich von dir nicht kenne du bist genau so süß wie die Prinzessin aus Krieg der Sterne (Chorus 1 + 2 ...)... hurra, ich lebe (1. Zeile) Du bist das allerschönste Bild in meinem Zimmer Ich glaube, geliebt hab’ ich dich eigentlich schon immer ... schon immer (3x)
See You Later
(Irgendwo & irgendwann)
Wo du stehst das weiß ich nicht Vielleicht verrät` s mir dein Gesicht Wenn du dich nicht schon wieder versteckst Komm’ tu was Gutes & lauf` nicht wieder weg Wo du hin willst weißt du selber nicht Ist ja auch egal, Hauptsache schön & reich Nun, hässlich bist du nicht, das weißt du ganz genau Doch das Wort reich ersetz’ ich ganz gewiss niemals mit schlau (Chorus:) Hör’ mir zu was ich dir sagen muss: Mit der Show die du hier abziehst ist jetzt endgültig schluss. Kein kleiner Finger mehr, um den man mich noch wickeln kann. Ich seh` dich später irgendwo & irgendwann Wie du schläfst, das weiß ich nicht, nun ich nehme an Nicht halb so schlecht wie ich Es sei denn du träumst ganz rein zufällig auch Von Godzilla & King Kong im Megadrogenrausch.
Sei unser Mann (Dm) Sie haben Dich fertig ge(C)macht (Am) doch Du hast weiter ge(F)lacht (Em-Dm) Du hast sie trotzdem ge(C)liebt (Am) Zeigtest der Welt wie man (F) gibt und (Em) gibt und (Dm) gibt Ihr Hass flog Dir um die Ohren Hast viele Freunde verloren Hast uns gezeigt was ein Held ist Wer auch nicht von dieser Welt ist, ist Dein Freund (Ref.:) Was Du tatst hast Du aus (C) Liebe getan (Am) Liebe statt Hass und (Dm) all uns’rem Wahn Dagegen kommt keine (C) Macht der Welt an (Am) Komm’ zeig’ uns was Du noch (Dm) kannst, Sei (Am) unser (F) Mann (Em-Dm) Sieh’ an wie die Massen toben Sie weigern sich Dich zu loben Vom Feind verkauft und belogen Haben sie den Mann betrogen der für sie starb Doch jetzt hab’ ich keine Angst mehr Vor ihrem brutalen Handwerk Du hast mich mächtig gemacht Denn Du stärkst jeden der schwach ist, arm und matt (Ref. 2x) ... denn (Em) es gibt (Dm) nichts was (C) ich durch (Am) Dich nicht (Dm) kann

In meinem Kopf lief heut‘ ‘ne Show von ganz besond’rer Art Der Showhost, Mr. Ego präsentierte seinen Star „Maine Damen, meine Herren, heut‘ mit von der Partie: das Selbstmitleid mit seiner Show ‚Fühl‘ mich so elend wie noch nie‘“ Ein Hauch von seinem Zaubergas verwandelt dich im Nu in Kummersack und Trauerkloß mit ihrem Hit „Buhu“ Buhuhuhu, buhuhuhu, buhuhuhu, buhuhuhu Das Selbstmitleid im Rampenlicht verneigte sich ganz tief & widmete dann mir persönlich sein allerneu’stes Lied Es hieß „Du armer, mega-oberallerärmster Mann“ und zog mich dann mit seiner Melodie in seinen Bann Buhuhuhu, buhuhuhu, buhuhuhu, keiner hört mir zu außer Du Du kamst durch meine Tür nicht durch den Kopf sondern durch’s Herz Tratst meinem Teufel in den Hintern dass er flog, ganz ohne Scherz Mit einer kalten Dusche triebst du auch Herrn Ego fort das Wasser war so kühl und klar, das Wasser was Dein Wort Juhuhuhu, keiner kämpft wie Du Du wandelst meine Traurigkeit in Freude um im Nu Juhuhuhu alles wird gut Wo gestern noch die Einsamkeit war, da bist heute Du MP3
Sinn des Lebens Die Suche nach dem Sinn des Lebens Ist nicht, wie mancher meint, vergebens Auch ist das Thema nicht tabu, sperr’n sich auch noch so viele vor ihm zu Im Gegenteil, so manches Kind nimmt schon zuweil Ganz unbewusst an dem Geheimnis teil Muss es doch auch durch sein Benehmen Lernen dass geben seliger ist als nehmen Drum, langes Suchen, kurzer Sinn: nur wer gibt der auch gewinnt Wer Liebe kennt, der weiß: hierin liegt uns` res kurzen Lebens Sinn (intro) Die Suche nach dem Sinn des Lebens Ist nicht die Irrfahrt eines jeden Der glaubt Gott wäre sein Verstand, sein Bauch, sein Auto oder Land Er findet sich vielmehr von selbst Wenn ein Herz mit einem anderen verschmilzt. Drum, langes Suchen, kurzer Sinn: nur wer liebt ... ... Sinn liegt uns’res ...
So viel zum Thema So viel zum Thema, “Das wussten wir nicht:” Ihr habt’s ignoriert. So viel zur Masche, „Wir sind doch so schlicht, überhaupt nichts kapiert.“ So viel zum Thema, „wir sind doch so blind Niemand der uns führt.“ Ihr habt gezeigt Ihr habt gar nichts gelernt Es hat Euch nicht berührt Egal wie oft, ihr tut es doch Alles was zählt ist wer bringt Geld Und wenn es auch der Teufel ist Ihr fallt drauf rein, auf seine List Das Gewissen verbrennt jeden der nicht erkennt Dass er wieder in die Falle rennt (Ref.) Die Wahrheit interessiert euch nicht Ihr wollt die Dunkelheit, kein Licht Und wenn die Welt zusammenbricht, dann war’s halt Pech, was kümmert’s mich Nein, es ist nicht das Kreuz vor dem ihr euch verbeugt Denn ihr habt überhaupt nichts bereut (Ref.) MP3 Video
Steig Hinauf (Em)Verlaut’ es nur, verbirg’ es (D) nicht unter ’nen (B7) Scheffel stellt man kein (Em) Licht Öffne die Tür, lass es hinaus Was du bekommst muss wieder `raus Du bist nicht nur zum über(Am)leben hier Wie (B7) all die anderen (Em) auch Du hast die Wahl: hoch oder tief Geht auch so manches dabei schief, der höh’re Weg ist deine Berufung alles andere ist naiv Du lebst nicht nur für dich allein komm’, zeig uns: was ist dein Motiv (Chorus:) (G) Lass nicht länger ver (C)loren sein was es (Am) hier zu finden (D) gibt Du bist dazu geboren ein Strom zu sein der nie versiegt Hör nicht auf all’ die ander’n die sagen „es hat keinen Sinn, gib’ auf“ Dieser Berg ist dein Schicksal es gibt nur eins zu tun, steig `rauf Unten im Tal sind sie entsetzt Weil du ihr Weltbild schier zerfetzt „So geht das nicht, komm’ sofort da runter du verstößt gegen das Gesetzt“ Doch hör’ nicht auf die, ihre Titanic geht unter Der beste Lacher lacht zuletzt
TV-Zombie (Chorus:) TV (Em) Zombie, (Am) TV (Em) Zombie (B) (2x) (Em) Ich bin ein TV Zombie, glotz' von (Am) früh bis spät Ich zap' mich durch die Sender bis gar nichts mehr geht (G) Ich zieh' mir jede Talkshow rein, den aller(D)letzten Tratsch (Em) Kenn' jeden Werbespot und (B) füll' mein Hirn mit Quatsch (Ch.) Ich bin ein TV Zombie, leb' auf meiner Couch meine Fernbedienung ist alles was ich brauch' Vielleicht ein Fläschchen oder 2 dazu und wenn ihr mich in Ruhe lasst, lass' ich euch auch in Ruh' (Ch.) Ich wünsch' mir Unterhaltung, denn was brauch' ich sonst? Dann muss ich nicht mehr denken, das ist meine Kunst Und wenn ich einst in's Gras beiss', geb' den Löffel ab Dann denkt an meine Glotze und legt sie mir mit in's Grab (Ch.) (G) Meine Seele gehört dem (D) Master, der GEZ und dem Flimmer(Em)kasten sein Wunsch ist mein Be(B)fehl (Ch.) (2x)
Was könnt’ wichtiger sein? (Em) gut oder schlecht, so leicht richtet es sich nicht drum lass’ es lieber (A) sein Liebe hat recht, wer nicht liebt, der bleibt ein Knecht Nur sie kann be(D)frei’n Arm oder reich, ganz so wichtig ist das nicht Wie was in dir steckt Hart oder weich – wie aufrichtig ist das Herz Das da in dir schlägt? Dir oder mir, wem gehört das Ganze hier? Wer regiert deine Welt? Liebe ist mir wichtiger als meine Gier Nach Ruhm, nach Macht und Geld (Ref.:) (G) Ich wüsste (D) nicht was könnt’ wichtiger (A) sein als dieses Licht das auf mein Leben scheint Siehst du es nicht selber auch langsam ein? Die einzige Pflicht in der Welt Ist einfach du zu (Em) sein Ganz so viel Text verarbeitet ihr ja nicht Drum lass ich’s lieber sein Und lass den Rest dieses Lieds ganz prompt und schlicht Wie den Anfang sein Arm oder reich... Dir oder mir... (Ref. 2x)
Weißt du noch damals? Weißt du noch damals als wir noch jung war `n Wir war’n kaputt, Mann; echt abgefuckt, Mann Doch da war etwas in uns `ren Augen In das die Erwachsenen sich nicht zu seh’n trauten Wir hatten Träume, nenn’s Illusionen Doch wer sieht je schon das an das wir glauben? Wir hatten Mut, wir hatten Wut Wir fanden’s angebracht uns wegzudreh’n Und viel zu schlecht um mitzugeh’n Vielzu schlecht um mitzuspiel’n, dieses Spiel das ihr so liebt (1.Str.) Wir war’n verstrahlt Mann, echt durchgeknallt, ... ... mussten hier raus, hielten’s nicht aus es noch länger mit anzusehen wie sie uns das Hirn verdreh’n uns lehren einfach wegzuseh’n um einige war’s schon gesche’n
