Song Lyrics

Asleep Among Wolves

Yeah, I realize I should pluck the plank from my eye. But, how can I when we’re all asleep on the inside not willing to admit that we’re all going to die comfortable in our sin making no real commitment? We should be ashamed. Professing faith in things we don’t even understand because we’ve been taught them by ravenous wolves. Ravenous wolves. Ravenous wolves. And then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto ten virgins. Though some were fools and some were wise the Bridegroom tarried. And the churches decided to close their eyes, neither warm nor cold. We’ll be spewed out of His mouth just like that parable foretold. The truth is that we’re all asleep on the inside not willing to admit that we’re all comfortable in our sin not wanting to make a commitment. I am tired of being asleep. The church needs to get back up on its feet. Wake up, wake up, wake up. Behold, the Bridegroom is coming. Yeah, I realize I should pluck the plank from my eye. But, how can I when we’re all asleep on the inside not willing to admit that we’re all going to die comfortable in our sin making no real commitment?

Keep Your Eyes Up

Oh, let us give thanks to the Lord unto the day of His return. In the clouds of glory He will descend. And His reward, it is with Him. It is with Him. Keep your eyes up. Oh God, prepare the way in me to have a clean heart that’s true and pure and righteous for You. Oh Lord, make me whole. Make me whole. I want to be with You. I want to see it through. Take me home. You’re my King, my God, my everything. You make my heart sing for joy in the name of the Lord. The Lamb that was slain from the foundation, so true. My heart skips a beat just knowing he wants me and you to be by His side for the rest of all time. Hallelujah. The Alpha and Omega. The Beginning and the End. The Ancient of Day and the Everlasting Almighty. The Creator of all things. The Banner and my Rock. The Shepard of my soul. And my Strong Tower. Oh, the Advocator of my soul. Faithful and True. The Chief Cornerstone. The Great High Priest. The King of kings. Our hope. Our joy. Our everything. Hallelujah. It’s not enough just to know I’m loved. He died for me and you. He had to see it through that we might escape it all. The Redeemer of my soul. Fear God. Keep His commands. For this is the whole of man. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.

Oh, the Aftermath

Oh, the aftermath of that sling as the stone struck the giant down on the ground. Sunken between the eyes like Balaam that couldn’t see what was coming after kicking the donkey because she stopped in the middle of the path. Oh, the aftermath. Open our eyes God.  If God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them. He spared not the old world by bringing in the flood. What are you going to say when it’s your turn to be judged? Many will say in that day, Lord, Lord. Have we not prophesied in Your name, casting out demons? Oh, how foolish could we be to think that in His name we are truly set free while on the inside we challenge like Goliath the day of that Great Battle who is the True and only Almighty? His flowing words come forth from that of a meager donkey the perverseness of our hearts and the nature of our being. As the unrighteousness removes us from the narrow path and into a self-control of denial, we’ve got to change. If God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them. He spared not the old world by bringing in the flood. What are you going to say when it’s your turn to be judged? Many will say in that day, Lord, Lord. Have we not prophesied in Your name, casting out demons?

Waiting

Oh, my God. Know this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers and mockers walking after their own lusts saying; where is the promise of His coming? For, since the fathers fell asleep all things continue as they were. From the beginning of all creation, willingly ignorant. Belligerent in fact. Ingrained in their minds that their ideas are the only ones worth buying. We’ve got to weigh the evidence first. And when He says he is coming again, there’s no reason that I should never believe Him. It’s not a matter of if, but when. You’ve got to realize there’s no disguising the truth. Oh my God, what have I done? I don’t know that I can wait much longer Lord. Bring me Home. But, if you want me to wait I will. Because, at the end of the day I would wait eternity. Let them mock and snicker if they want to. That just means they don’t want to be with you. It’s alright if I end up crucified. Every word they say, it just ends up fulfilling prophecy and pointing back to that great day when you died and your mother Mary she fell on her knees and she had to cry. And the vail was torn from top to bottom. And since that time we wait that great Day of the Lord. How long oh Lord until you avenge our blood?

The Perfection of Beauty

In my Father’s house are many mansions and I can’t wait to see them. If it were not so He would not have told you. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty. God will shine forth like a precious stone of jasper clear as crystal. He will reign forever in the house of Jacob. His Kingdom will have no end. Even so Lord Jesus, come. And after these things I looked and beheld a great multitude which no one could number. All the nations, tribes, and peoples, and tongues standing before the throne. Before the Lamb, clothed in white righteousness with palm branches in their hands crying out with a loud voice saying; salvation belongs to our God and to the Lamb who sits on the throne. Through Jesus Christ, the only one who could redeem us all. What do you think about that? What do you think about that? Jesus Christ. Oh, my God. Come again. Even so Lord, come again. Lord, come. Lord, come. Even so Lord Jesus, come. We’re waiting on you Lord. We’re waiting on you Lord. Bring down Your Kingdom. Bring down Your Kingdom. Come Lord Jesus, come.

Now a days the only thing that I actually use the internet for is pretty limited. I mostly just keep this site up and use Youtube to listen to music and watch lectures an eschatology, theology, and the sciences. I know… I’m getting old.

Well, after a while the AI algorithms have caused me to stumble into melancholy Post Rock. And I have to say, I am really loving it. I am more of an introvert by nature and this genre is really relaxing, reflective, and yet still very powerful.

Here are just a few bands I’ve found so far worth checking out.

As Seas Exhale

We Lost The Sea

Some really great stuff if you ask me. Some of this style of music might end up rubbing of on me with the next set of releases that I do after the set that is about to come out. I already have a 5 song EP done. I am just waiting to hear back from some people about releasing it.

Well, I made what I think is going to be a final studio change for a long time. I did a huge studio update by creating a vocal booth to the left of my gear. I was really happy with how the vocal booth sounded. It really cleaned up the audio quality. It however shut down my creativity. You see, in the studio I am writing while I record. I am writing while I record with almost all of it… especially the vocals. The booth cramped the writing process by forcing me to have to move around too much.

But that’s old.

I changed it today by getting a swivel pivot stand so that I can go back to recording vocals the way I was doing it before setting up the vocal booth. This time I will still have the extra padding to help with the noise reduction. In the process of switching out this new setup I shifted the entire studio down a little. I am really happy with how it turned out.

Studio stuff is always fun!!!

Well, after taking the time to put together the vocal booth I have decided once again to make a few changes to the studio space. It’s a little hard to have something prefect, because technically this space is also a guest bedroom and craft room all rolled into one. So, I am doing the best with what I’ve got to work with. I am still going to be using the vocal booth space, but I have decided to change it up a little.

I am going to do what I can to post some before and after photos of the changes I decided to make. But, for now I thought I would explain my vocal booth experience thus far.

I really like the change in recording quality. But, the way that I have it set up right now as the person doing the recording, and tracking, it is a lot of work for me to press record, walk into the booth, put on headphones… record my takes, and then take the headphones off… step out of the booth… and then sit back down. I know, it may seem like I am being nitpicky. But it really does become a hassle when the writing process is happening during the recording session itself.

The current set up is just cramping the writing process when tracking vocals.

The only thing is, in order for my idea to work, I am going to have to make a custom swivel mic stand that is strong enough to hold everything that is on it.

Like I said, I’ll post before and after photos once I’ve gotten it figured out.
