Lyrics

1. I LOVE YOU

If I were a ship on the ocean would you throw me a sail
If I were locked away in a prison would you pay my bail
If I were thirsty in the desert would you give me a drink
Naked on the scorching street would you walk right over me

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

If I had no place to sleep would you give me your bed
If I were a stranger in a strange land would you leave me for dead
If I were nailed to a cross would you scream save yourself
If I became the curse would you remove the nails

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

To the least of these you done to me
to the least of these
To the least of these you done to me
to the least of these

If I live in a glass house would you throw me a stone
If I asked for only meat would you give me the bone
If I asked for a fish would you hand me a snake
If I begged for a single egg would you say just live by faith

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you

I love you
I love you
I love you




2. THE WORM

You don't know how it feels to be Me
To be sitting on the edge dangling my feet
Wondering if god would give his angels charge
If I was feeling small
If my mind was growing large

I am the worm crawling through your head
I am the worm crawling through your head

You don't know how it feels to be Me
Having all these faces looking in to see
Their eyes are white lit just like a torch
To burn my soul which is thin and which is worn

I am the worm crawling through your head
I am the worm crawling through your head
I am the worm crawling through your head
I am the worm crawling through your head

Take my life
Take my life
Take my life
Before I taken it myself

You don't know how it feels to be me
To be a poet nailed to this tree
Where are my accusers those who ridicule
Those who have learned to hate and curse this silly fool

I am the worm crawling through your head
I am the worm crawling through your head
I am the worm crawling through your head
I am the worm crawling through your head




3. END

The sun shined through poking holes in the sky
Like cigarette burns on the bedsheet
Sound the horn step down with a shout
The earth and the sun are gonna burn out

Til the end
Til the end of the world I'll be with you
Til the end
Til the end of the world I'll be with you

Sold her soul to pay the rent
And the baby won't stop crying
Take my life before i take it myself
Because today she feels like dying

Til the end
Til the end of the world I'll be with you
Til the end
Til the end of the world I'll be with you

She drops acid to find god
Falling angels roaming through her head

He has a handgun he calls Christ
Say they like talking with the dead

They Say, they Say, they Say, they Say
They Say, they Say, they Say

Looking at the ceiling when she saw the sky
Saw a door open the light burned her eyes
Spirit moved through the mulberry trees
Hold onto jesus don't hold onto me

Til the end
Til the end of the world I'll be with you
Til the end
Til the end of the world I'll be with you




4. I LIVE FOR YOU

Deny yourself die to the flesh
No conceit - pride of life
Law of grace - serve in love
Wait for hope of righteousness
Pluck out my eyes - my sight to you
Walk a mile - I'll walk two
Turn my cheek - state of grace
I have left all

If I live - I live - I live for you
If I die - I die - I die for you
If I live - I live - I live for you

If I live - I live - I live for you
If I die - I die - I die for you
If I live - I live - I live for you

So I speak with tongues of angels
Speak with wisdon of men
Give my body to be born
Without love I’am sin

Deny yourself die to the flesh
No conceit - pride of life
Law of grace - serve in love
Wait for hope of righteousness

If I live - I live - I live for you
If I die - I die - I die for you
If I live - I live - I live for you

If I live - I live - I live for you
If I die - I die - I die for you
If I live - I live - I live for you

Give me life - liberty - I want to be free
Give me life - liberty - I want to be free

If I live - I live - I live for you
If I die - I die - I die for you
If I live - I live - I live for you

If I live - I live - I live for you
If I die - I die - I die for you
If I live - I live - I live for you

If I live - I live - I live for you
If I die - I die - I die for you
If I live - I live - I live for you

If I live - I live - I live for you
If I die - I die - I die for you
If I live - I live - I live for you




5. FOLLOW ME

I'm a man given to much prayer
Never been tempted by strong drink
I'm not afraid to call Jesus lord
I have no fear of the fires below

And if you break my spine
You can't break my will
Try to strip me of my gift
My reward - you can't steal

Eat with the sinners they might be saints
Beautiful are the feet that obey
How shall they believe if I'm not sent
A man forsakes his childish ways

And if you break my spine
You can't break my will
Try to strip me of my gift
My reward

Follow me I know the way
I am saying what no one will say
Follow me
Follow me

Follow me
Follow me
Follow me

I dip this pen into my heart
Write from my soul
If ink were blood
I'd be still and cold

Follow me I know the way
I am saying what no one will say
Follow me
Follow me

Follow me
Follow me
Follow me




6. TELL ME

Tell me
Tell me - is this what you want
Tell me - is that what you mean
Tell me - what is rolling off my tongue
Tell me - sugar coated from my lips

I don't ever
I don't ever
Want to feel this way again
I don't ever
I don't ever
Want to feel this way again

Tell me
Tell me - would you rather hear me scream
Tell me - or preach the word to you
Tell me - spoon fed choke it down
Tell me - will I ever get through

I don't ever
I don't ever
Want to feel this way again
I don't ever
I don't ever
Want to feel this way again

Tell me
Tell me - am I living in prophecy
Tell me - the worlds so sad and ugly
Tell me - let me help you to your feet
Tell me - no one's gracious in defeat

I don't ever
I don't ever
Want to feel this way again
I don't ever
I don't ever
Want to feel this way again
This way again

Tell me
Tell me
Tell me
Tell me

Tell me
Tell me
Tell me
Tell me




7. LOVE/HATE

The cross you wear
The lips that swear
The heart that tears apart
The do's and dare's
The troubled shared
The pain that causes want
The arm of flesh
The kiss of death
The infant sings of resurrect
Eyes that lust
Love waxed in rust
Finally rest in earth's sweet dust

Bless the ones who persecute
Love those who hate you
Bless the ones who persecute
Love those who hate you

Who are the enemies of the cross
And who finds it a stumbling block
Who can endure despising and shame
On the instrument of pain
Promises kept and Jesus wept
All four corners have been swept
To each his own
We should have known
That father God would call his children home

Bless the ones who persecute
Love those who hate you
Bless the ones who persecute
Love those who hate you

Bless the ones who persecute
Love those who hate you

Bless the ones who persecute
Love those who hate you
Bless the ones who persecute
Love those who hate you




8. HUMAN RACE

Born into iniquity
No one is immune
Die to the grave
Everyone the same

One race the human race
It's no discrimination
One race the human race
It's moral deterioration

Hate mongers
Know no peace
Chaotic minds
Swim in blood

One race the human race
It's no discrimination
One race the human race
It's moral deterioration

Who will stand
In the end
Except the ones
Who are called by him




9. I HEAR A WORD

Voices haunting me accusing me from within
They are present with me making me behave

Spirit never condemns never talks to himself
Spirit never condemns never talks to himself

I hear a word
I hear a word - resting on me
I hear a word
I hear a word - resting on me
Inspired

In my selfishness my pride did swell
I must learn to serve in all humility

Spirit never condemns never talks to himself
Spirit never condemns never talks to himself

I hear a word
I hear a word - resting on me
I hear a word
I hear a word - resting on me
Inspired

In the valley of darkness I never stopped to rest
Cleansed by the word washed by the blood

Spirit never condemns never talks to himself
Spirit never condemns never talks to himself

I hear a word
I hear a word - resting on me
I hear a word
I hear a word - resting on me
Inspired

I hear a word
I hear a word - resting on me
I hear a word
I hear a word - resting on me
Inspired

I hear a word - resting on me
Inspired
Inspired
Inspired




10. COSMIC CHRIST

Religious fanatics and their cosmic Christ
Spin doctors liberating giving life
Authenticity judges the politically correct
Denominational ax grinds the spirit from the flesh

Lost divinity in disguise
Goddess in embryo to materialize

Fuming fundamentalists hungry laity
Cannibalistic naturalist proving fallacy
Burden of proof lies in legitimate faith
Read between the lines of a saving grace

Lost divinity in disguise
Goddess in embryo to materialize

Cut to the bone how deep it goes
Cut to the bone blood flows

Lost divinity in disguise
Goddess in embryo to materialize

Rejection of supernatural truth
Omesticated academic agnostic fools
Theologians with the promises of politics
Counter cultural wisdom rhetoric

Lost divinity in disguise
Goddess in embryo to materialize

Lost divinity in disguise
Goddess in embryo to materialize




11. THE WORLD I KNOW

I looked back to see it all
Like a moth to the flame
Stopped pushing pulled my hand from the plow
I looked back looked down
Embraced the world - closed my soul
Looked back - looked back - looked down
Looked back - looked back - looked down
One last glance at the world I know
Looked back - looked back - looked down
Looked back - looked back - looked down

All my sins forgiven me
Except the sin of apology*
Holy Ghost I do swear
Like a sound in the air

Embraced the world - closed my soul
Looked back - looked back - looked down
Looked back - looked back - looked down
One last glance at the world I know
Looked back - looked back - looked down
Looked back - looked back - looked down

To forgive is a must
Give and it will be given to you
Good measure pressed down
Shaken together and running over you

Embraced the world - closed my soul
Looked back - looked back - looked down
Looked back - looked back - looked down
One last glance at the world I know
Looked back - looked back - looked down
Looked back - looked back - looked down
