  • 02:33 Story Lyrics
    Oh! Jesus

    Jesus
    Come down I’ve got to talk to you
    Oh! Jesus
    Come down I’ve got to talk to you
    Far be it from me to tell you anything
    But man this world is cruel

    Why me?
    I guess the question is why not me
    Why me?
    I guess the question is why not me
    I lusted and got sidetracked and I panicked
    ‘Cause I thought you’d done forgot me

    Jesus
    Can you supply me for awhile
    Oh! Jesus
    Can you supply me for awhile
    Moses said “thou shall not steal” my credit’s shot
    And begging’s not my style

    211 Degrees

    When I bash my knee on the side of my desk / Want to follow my spirit but I go with the flesh

    I pile up credit ‘cause I don’t have the cash / Got a real nice car can’t afford the gas

    And I get mad / About to boil over / Turn down that burner can’t take one more degree

    Need some peace / Need some peace


    God is so good and I act like a brat / Wanna do this but end up doing that

    Want to bite my tongue but instead I attack / Got a brush full of blue but I paint it black


    And I get mad / About to boil over Turn down that burner can’t take one more degree

    Just need some peace / I need some peace


    Sun is still shinin’ up above the clouds / You’ll get past what you’re feelin’ now

    You’ll have it all when you give it all away


    Want to be unique but instead I conform / Time to get up but the bed is so warm

    Too much traffic and the drive is too long / Thank God for coffee make it good and strong


    So self-conscious do I really belong / Fast food cheap but the order is wrong

    Trying to stay fit but I blew it again / The Lord’s coming back but I wanna know when

    Words Unspoken

    Back and forth and back like the paperboy
    Bringing all the news that’s fit to print
    Trying to figure out not always getting it
    Your problems aren’t always heaven sent

    Early on and all through our lifetimes
    Many many things just don’t get said 
    Trippin’ through wires walkin’ on sunshine
    Bennie’s still here but the Jets are dead

    Oh, feelin’ tomorrow
    Feelin’ like tomorrow’s already gone
    Wind-whipped wave wake up and whisper
    Sufficient to the day is the evil thereof

    Early on and all through our lifetimes
    Many many things just don’t get said 
    Trippin’ through wires walkin’ on sunshine
    Bennie’s still here but the Jets are dead

    Time is passing / Say what you need to say
    Words unspoken / Forgotten fade away

    Don’t let go don’t forget the mission
    Don’t forget the reason He came down here
    Don’t pipe down somebody’s listening
    The facts are all in but you need not fear

  • 03:29 Story Lyrics
    Prodigal

    Please write me / I’m an open book but my pages are blank / Please write me
    Please use me / Got a guarded heart but I wanna do my part / Please use me

    Careened and finally crashed / So I threw away my stash
    Did my time in no man’s land and I’m ready to come back

    Please push me / Wanna step out of my zone but I tend to be alone / Please push me
    Please wind me / A broken clock’s right twice a day and that’s ok but / Please wind me

    Careened and finally crashed / So I threw away my stash
    Did my time in no man’s land and I’m ready to come back

    Prodigal Prodigal / Gambled with my very soul
    Prodigal Prodigal / Take me back and make me whole
    Oh Father I am heading home again

    Please please me / Wanna love your way on your path I wanna stay / Please please me
    Please keep me / In your ever lovin’ arms for forever and beyond / Please keep me

    Blue Haze

    There’s a blue haze draped over everything
    There’s a shadow moving with the tide
    There’s a blind man wondering how it got to this
    And the bells in the tower are sending the news far and wide

    Now the blue haze is creeping through the city walls
    Feel the fear grip your heart as the demons start knocking on the door
    Won’t do anyone here any good to run into the hills to hide
    And it’s time for the saints to accept what they know is in store

    There’s a blue haze hanging on my heavy heart
    As I stop to consider the fate of my brothers unsaved
    I will leave them and begin my time in paradise
    But did I do all I could to prevent their descent to the grave
