Lyrics

 

Hell is no Party

 

One time you shake your fist in the air, one time you shout to the sky,

 

One time you destroy what good could be there, one time you just got too high

 

Bridge

God says its sin and you say ‘Oh well’

 ‘I’ll laugh with my friends when I get to hell’

 

Chorus

Hell is no party. Hell is no fun.

You face the Maker (and eternity) in a crowd of one.

Hell is no party!

 

 

One time you deny the existence of God, one time you call Him a crutch

 

One time you abuse because Christians are odd, one time is one time too much

 

 

One time the Christ child came to the Earth, one time He lived kindly and just

One time God asked Him to offer His worth, one time Christ declared ‘I must’

 

Bridge (alt.)

                                            

Jesus paid for sin, we cannot deny

               

His blood was spilled. And do you know why? – Because à

Lyrics

Wallowing in the Mire

Another day the shadows wake me, the sunlight pierced through my eyes

 

Is this the day the pain will take me and when it does it’s no surprise

 

I find my deeds bring destruction, unraveling all that I love

 

An evil day, will someone wake me, will someone take me, will someone SHAKE ME?!

 

(Chorus)

 

I’m wallowing in the mire; I’m rolling in the mud.

 

I’m sinking deeper everyday; don’t tell me about a cleansing flood.

 

(Repeat)

 

 I found a way to hide my sins; from God, from people, even me

 

My friends away - it’s me who wins, and no one else will ever see

 

I love this sin, but hate the shame. This back and forth may drive me mad

 

I get my way; I keep my sins, tell me who wins, does Christ’s blood cleanse?!

 

(Chorus)

 

I love these feelings and I want some more

 

And feelings, too, I’m trying to ignore

 

The kind of filth a shower cannot clean

 

Guilt and shame that gets down in between

 

My flesh and heart & soul – Can I be free?

 

What is it that those Christians said to me?

 

(Chorus) (Guitar Solo) (Chorus)

Lyrics

King of Kings

 

  The Lord will return full of life, with the sword of His mouth

 

He rides the skies on a horse of white, smiting nations north and south

 

They will see Him that pierced His side, and rejected His love.

 

 Jesus Christ whom they crucified, justifies men by His blood

 

 

Chorus

 

And His vesture dipped in blood He is the Lamb who bore the cross

 

He is the mighty King of Kings. The war shall not be lost

 

 

 

   Jesus Christ, whose blood was shed, for the sins of the world,

 

is resurrected from the dead. Now His banner is unfurled.

 

Satan’s armies will gather then, to battle the Lord.

 

 Evil men with hearts full of sin shall be slain by His sword

 

 

Chorus

 

Interlude/Solos

And though He returns with wrath and power, you can be right with Him

 

Just bow before the Lord this hour, and turn from your sin! He’ll forgive your sin!!

Lyrics

Bright and Morning Star

 

 

Though I’m in a crowd of people, I still feel all alone

 

 Though I seem to have so many friends, I still feel I’m on my own

 

Though I try to do what I think should be done

 

 I look at myself and my life’s on a shelf and I feel there’s no answer but one

 

 

My anger builds from deep within me, I don’t know who to blame

 

I remember my life as a child, will I ever be same

 

Will I ever see a way to be free, free from this pain?

 

I walk in the dark I just need a spark. Jesus Christ, He’s the hope that remains

 

(Chorus)

 

He’s my Bright and Morning Star. He’s my Light and my Salvation

 

Everyone’s best dream by far. He’s the hope of all creation

 

He’s the Rock on which I stand. Jesus Christ knows who I am

 

 

(Lead Guitar)

 

 

When I call He answers me,” Here I am my child."

 

 Do not fear ‘cuz I will be with you all the while.

 

I’ll be here so do not fear, I died to make men free

 

Removing your pain and sin’s ugly stain, so that you could be here with me

 

 

(Chorus)

Lyrics

Don’t Shoot the Messenger

 

               

The prophets of old   ----   Spoke the Word, - Convincing men of sin

The kings were told   ----   You’d better turn, - or face the fix you’re in

                         

And when they didn’t like what they heard – they turned an evil eye!

And when they killed ---- The man of God, - They heard the prophet’s cry

 

(Bridge)

In Him there is blessing and liberty. Forgiveness is His way

                           

In Him there’s a ransom for you and me, new life everyday

 

(Chorus)

                                                                            

Don’t shoot the messenger; you know I bring good news

If you feel the fear of God, You know what you must choose

Don’t shoot the messenger (or – We are the Messenger), my message - don’t refuse

 

Just embrace the love of God, there’s nothing you can lose  

    

When Christ was killed ----- Then raised again, The Holy Ghost came down

 

Disciples turned ----- Apostles then, - about to gain their crown

 

And when they shared what the Lord had done – they knew they could die

 

Those that killed ---- the martyrs heard, - the bold apostles’ cry

 

(Bridge)    (Chorus)

You & I ---- In this room, - ask ourselves today

 

Will we hear ---- Or face our doom, - C’mon what do you say?

 

And when you don’t like what you hear – don’t turn an evil eye

 

Just believe ---- the man of God, - Messenger will cry

Forbidden Love

 

    I saw her there, her eyes- her hair, and her smile, shining bright

And though she’s fun, or could be the one, I hoped she was in His light

 She came to me, in hopes that we, could begin, to be a pair

But I knew, that we two, had beliefs we needed to share

 

                                  

We come to God with all our trouble. Can we live outside our bubble?

 Or do we believe enough just to get by?

 

(Interlude)

When I know, that I know, that you’re His, I’ll be yours

When you see, that you see, He is real, He opens doors

 

(Bridge 2)

Wondering what we might find, questions coming to our minds,

 should we be in love without the Lord?

 

(Interlude)

We can start, when your heart, has been changed, from above

We’ll know when, but until then, it has to be, forbidden love.

LOVE FORBIDDEN!!

 

(Bridge 3)

She came to me with a new mind. More than loving, more than kind… I felt within my heart that she was changed!

Lyrics

The Rapture

 

When one is taken and the other is left,

 

- One sees Jesus and the other fears death

 

Chaos on one side, joy on the other - One is with Him one could’ve been a brother

 

Hear Jesus call with a clear loud voice,

                                                                                  

 Calling them that made the Lord their choice

 

Leaving the lost & taking the atoned, calling His bride and taking her home

 

Chorus

 

What a great day that will be – The great day of the Lord

 

What a great day that will be - The terrible day of the Lord

 

Woe to the world in the Rapture

 

Woe to the world in the Rapture

 

 

   Life is a choice between two roads.

 

 You’re gonna choose the way you go

 

One way is narrow and the other is wide.

 

One leads to satan and the other to Christ

 

God promised joy in His presence.

 

Once you’re in Hell it’s too late for repentance

 

Jesus promised a mansion in Heaven. Take the narrow road!!

Roar

 

                           

Says she cares – she says she hates

 

She spikes blue hair - her friendship grates

 

Told as a woman – told as a youth

 

She blames a lie on the truth

 

Cuts her arms and asks for help

 

She beats her face and leaves a whelp

 

Loved through Christ - Who could do more?

 

She kills herself. It makes me want to

 

 

 ROAR!!   ROAR!!   ROAR!!

 

                         

Raised in church - he’s taught to lead

 

He preys on kids – his flesh to feed

 

Lives in shadow – he lives in light

 

He hides his sin and sleeps at night

 

Hides behind the Cross and Christ

 

Their innocence is sliced and diced

 

Word and Spirit – at his door

 

He spurns the truth. It makes me want to

 

 

ROAR!!   ROAR!!   ROAR!!

Chained

 

Chained within this unreal world of rock ‘n’ roll fantasy

The struggle goes on, what’s right - what’s wrong, confusion inside of me

I put on my mask, I strut my stuff. I’m never really there.

And people get hurt by the things I do, I never really care

 

(Bridge)

Rock ‘n’ roll was my way of life. Rock ‘n’ roll was my dream

Rock ‘n’ roll had destroyed my life. Things just aren’t what they seem

 

(Chorus)

Chained, chained it just wouldn’t let me go

Chained, chained somebody holds the key

Chained, chained somebody has to know

Chained, chained somebody rescue me

 

 “There’s new life in the Spirit if Christ”, a friend of mine said to me

“New life begins when you turn from your sins & the blood of Christ makes you free”

I got on my knees and I cried to God,” Will you save me Lord?”

Then I saw what I’d never seen I never knew I could afford

 

(Bridge)  (Chorus)

 

There in the quiet, in the dark, God’s Spirit helped me see

 The evil things that I had done - I could blame nobody but me

I searched my heart, I searched my mind. Oh God please make me clean!

I got a new start I’m no longer blind I understand now what He means

America, Why?

                     

A little girl trapped in a well, the world watches breath by breath.

We wait to hear the newsman tell, she’s rescued from the jaws of death.

                      

A young boy snatched away and raped, an innocent life is scarred.

The man is caught, the child escaped. We wonder whose heart is so hard.

 

(Chorus)

America’s young, America’s mirth, America’s now, America’s then

           Our backs are turned before their birth. America – why do you kill the children?

 

 A twisted mind, a building explodes; the death count comes one by one.

Our hopes removed with the rubble load. They were kids just having fun

 

Oklahoma, the boy, the little girl, all drew our heartstrings as one.

The unborn child snuggled up in a curl, is somebody’s daughter or son.

 

(Chorus)   (Interlude)   (Chorus)
