From the 2004 CD, NOT UNCLEAN

Lyrics

When Jesus came down from the mountain
Behold a leper came and worshipped Him
Saying, "Lord if Thou will, Thou can make me clean"
And Jesus reached forth His hand
And touched him saying, "I will, be thou clean"
And immediately the leprosy was cleansed

I can see your sin from here
Covering your skin like liquid shame
Sweat oozes from your pores from fear
Afraid someone will call your name

What if someone finds you out?
That you're not what you claim to be about
What if someone finds you out?
That you're not what you claim to be about
And you're unclean! You're unclean!

You and your friend could be twins
In fact, everyone in the world's guilty
Imagine exposing all your sins
I can tell you right now that it wouldn't be pretty

Who will ever touch your hand ?
That's where the line is drawn in the sand
Who will ever touch your hand?
That's where the line is drawn in the sand
When you're unclean! You're unclean!


In Jesus eyes there are no lepers
We are only sons and daughters
In Jesus eyes there are no lepers
We are only sons and daughters



Who is the master of your failure?
Pray tell, is it One who can forgive?
Or is it just another sinner
Without the knowledge how to live?

Who is that beating your brow?
And what does God think about them now?
Who is that beating your brow?
And what does God think about them now?
Telling you that you're unclean!


In Jesus' eyes there are no lepers
We are only sons and daughters
In Jesus' eyes there are no lepers
We are only sons and daughters



These signs shall follow them that believe
In my name they shall cast out devils
They shall speak with new tongues
They shall pick up serpents
They shall lay hands on the sick
And they shall recover!

After all is said and done
The victory's already won
After all is said and done
The victory's already won
You're not unclean! You're not unclean!


In Jesus' eyes there are no lepers
We are only sons and daughters
In Jesus' eyes there are no lepers
We are only son's and daughters

Paisley Yankolovich
From the 2005 CD, ITCH

Lyrics

Got an itch in my heart
I’m aching for love
The kind that is real
That I can depend on

I’m tired of the pain
I’m tired of the waiting
Of coming too close
But not close enough

What a curse
What a curse
To scratch and scratch
And make it worse

Will you satisfy my craving?

Got an itch in my brain
I’m longing for truth
I’m living a lie
And I’m afraid

I’ve tasted the blood
Invested the time
I’m wasting away
In my identity

What a curse
What a curse
To scratch and scratch
And make it worse

Will you satisfy my craving?

Will you satisfy my craving?
Will you answer to my need
I’ve been running wild and rabid
I was held captive thinking I was free

But now it’s dark and fear is falling
Hope pulled right out from under me
Up ahead a light is forming
Is that light available to me?

Will you satisfy my craving?
God, are You available to me?

Paisley Yankolovich
From the 2006 CD, DOES GOD SLEEP

Lyrics

Was God sleeping
The night my baby died
I don’t think so
It’s so easy to lay the blame

When He knows all things before they happen
A vision of the night to hold on to
I have that memory of you

I need an extra dose of faith to get me through
Why did God give me someone like you?

Does God Sleep?
I don’t think so, no

Was God sleeping
The night my mama died?
It’s true
She couldn’t take anymore

I hope that mama had the guts to Him in the eye
And say, “I’m sorry
I have no memory of You”

I need an extra dose of faith to get me through
Why did God give me someone like you?

Does God Sleep?
I don’t think so, no

I think God was asleep when He
Let my dad take me out back, you see
In the shade of that old willow tree
And do those awful things to me

I think God was asleep when she
My mom at my sixth grade party
Whispered in my ear gently,
“You stink, you sink, you’re so ugly”

Where there is one person
There is hope for change
Where there is life
There is hope for change
Where there is one church
There is hope for change

There is hope
Our hope is Jesus
And without Him
There would be no hope

Where there is the old
The young have the hope
To survive
The rough times

Where two or more
Are gathered in His name
There is hope
To survive
The rough times

There is hope
Our hope is Jesus
And without Him
There would be no hope

Paisley Yankolovich
From the 2007 CD, REAL MAN

Lyrics

I  can’t become super human
Can’t you love me for all that I am?
I aim to please I try to impress
But baby, I feel like such a mess
When you say...

“Be a Real Man
You’ve got to be a Real Man
Be a Real Man for me
Like the guy on tv
Put your hands in the air
That comes to you so easy
Put your hands in the air
Grab a star for me
Won’t you grab a star for me?”

I can’t handle all this pressure
Can’t you see I’m going under?
I can’t play no god for you
Can’t you see what I’m going through?
When you say...

“Be a Real Man
You’ve got to be a Real Man
Be a Real Man for me
Like the guy on tv
Put your hands in the air
That comes to you so easy
Put your hands in the air
Grab a star for me
Won’t you grab a star for me?”

Would a Real Man
Help you out in the kitchen?
Would he help you start
Your own religion
Would he soak you for
All that you’re willing to give?
Or would he love you enough
To let you live?


“Be a Real Man
You’ve got to be a Real Man
Be a Real Man for me
Like the guy on tv
Put your hands in the air
That comes to you so easy
Put your hands in the air
Grab a star for me
Won’t you grab a star for me?”


Paisley Yankolovich
From the 2007 CD, DISPLACED

Lyrics

I know one day I’ll be home
Rejoicing in the presence of our Maker
Basking in the love in His eyes
Celebrating Jesus Christ forever

But in this life we take our chances
Things don’t always work out as planned
Broken dreams and failed romances
I pray that people understand

I need A Place 4 My Heart to call home
A roof over my head with love to spare
I need A Place 4 My Heart to call home
Will you take me there?

I admit it’s not all that easy
Facing my lot day by day
Whispers, pointed fingers always bring me
Down to my knees-I start to pray

God please tell me this is only temporary
The nights are cold and I’m too often alone
Please send an angel who can reassure me
That somewhere in this world I have a home

I need A Place 4 My Heart to call home
A roof over my head with love to spare
I need A Place 4 My Heart to call home
Will you take me there?

People building bridges
Life just tears them down
People loving families
Mine just ain’t around

Winter’s coming and I’m not even sure
Where I’ll rest my head
Maybe by the time you hear this
I’ll be lost among the dead
No, no, no

I need A Place 4 My Heart to call home
A roof over my head with love to spare
I need A Place 4 My Heart to call home
Will you take me there?

Jesus said, “If you do this
For the least of My children
You have done it unto Me”

Will you take me home?
Will you take me there?

From the 2007 CD, ZOMBIES

Lyrics

When I think about what we have
I look at you and you're so sad
I'm sick and tired of playing games
I'm sick and tired of naming names
When I think about what we have

There's a shadow out of nowhere
Its my church and I'm afraid to go there

There's Zombies
On the loose tonight
There won't be
Any kiss goodnight

Zombies
Walking down the halls
Zombies
Staring at the walls
No no no no no no

When I think about what we are
We haven't gotten all that close so far
On the other side of the room
Sittin' there prophesying my doom
When I think about what we are

There's a shadow out of nowhere
Its my church and I'm afraid to go there

There's Zombies
On the loss tonight
There wont be
Any kiss goodnight

Zombies
Walking down the halls
Zombies
Staring at the walls
No no no no no no

I gotta tell you
I am soooooooo scared
If I feel this uncomfortable now
Whats gonna happen
When you really get to know me?

Are you gonna turn your back on me?
Are you gonna turn your back on me?
Are you gonna turn your back on me?

Or are you just gonna talk behind mine?

I don't think so, no
No no no no no no no no...

Paisley Yankolovich
From the 2008 CD, WHEN LOVE DIES

Lyrics

I wonder about you
As I sit here waiting and waiting
What is it that you do
Every night as you're leaving?
After one long year...

Is it something you can feel?
Is it something you can taste?
Is some other love more real?
Because it's mine you waste
After two long years...

Where are you now?
Does it even matter if I think of you?
Does it even matter if I manage to pray?
I wonder if they ever make if through
When Love Dies

I get into my car
This is something that I need to know
I need to know how far
Away from me you go
After three long years...

Is it something you can feel?
Is it something you can taste?
Is some other love more real?
Because it's mine you waste
After four long years...

Where are you now?
Does it even matter if I think of you?
Does it even matter if I manage to pray?
I wonder if they ever make it through
When Love Dies

Paisley Yankolovich
From the 2008 CD, LEADING HORSES

Lyrics

Leading Horses one by one
Leading Horses across the sand
We are horses, everyone
Galloping toward the Promised Land

See the horse, a messy breed
Leading Horses on to Zion
See the horse alone in need
Through the desert, up the mountain

We’re drowning in dirty water
Splashing evil everywhere
But we just love that dirty water
Hell’s bells ring…
And we don’t care
(We just join the choir)

Leading Horses two by two
Horses in sheep’s clothing all
Leading Horses-what we do
The bigger the stallion
The harder the fall

See the horses swim in mud
See the horses head to slaughter
Leading Horses to The Blood
Horses, horses, sons and daughters

We’re drowning in dirty water
Splashing evil everywhere
But we just love that dirty water
Hell’s bells ring…
And we don’t care
(We just join the choir)

Paisley Yankolovich
From the 2009 CD, BURN IN HELL

Lyrics

Dripping blood in a bathtub late at night
With your baby is just as bad
As dripping blood in a bathtub late at night
By yourself, now ain't love grand?

Ain't love grand...

May you Burn in Hell
For eons an eons
'Cause you broke my heart so bad
May you Burn In Hell
For eons and eons
I'd Burn In hell
Just to see you again

Using porcelain for a canvas
Is so passe, original...
Why don't you sniff some glue and call it
1976 and take a hike'

Take a hike..

May you Burn in Hell
For eons an eons
'Cause you broke my heart so bad
May you Burn In Hell
For eons and eons
I'd Burn In hell
Just to see you again

I'm gonna tell everyone I know
That I hate your guts-and I do
Two lives pissed down the drain
On a Friday night-I'm so impressed

I'm so impressed...

May you Burn in Hell
For eons an eons
'Cause you broke my heart so bad
May you Burn In Hell
For eons and eons
I'd Burn In hell
Just to see you again

Paisley Yankolovich
From the 2009 CD, LOVE ME FOREVER

Lyrics

Saw you on the street
You looked a little funny
You looked a little funny
When I saw you on the street

It bugged me when you stepped
When you stepped on me buddy
It bug me when you stepped
When you stepped on my feet

And you're not around
When you're not around
No you're not around at all

Do you think you could Love Me Forever
Even after I go to war?
Say your prayers and Love Me Forever
Let me know what I'm fighting for

Let me know that you love me

Call you on the phone
And you gotta hang up
You got a hang up
About me using the phone

Then you pat me on the head
Just like I was a pup
But I'm gonna cry tonight
Because I'm all alone

And you're not around
When you're not around
No you're not around at all

Do you think you could Love Me Forever
Even after I go to war?
Say your prayers and Love Me Forever
Let me know what I'm fighting for

Let me know that you love me

I'm so scared that I'll end up in my grave with nothing left to show for it But a pile of nothing Just a pile of nothing

Would you throw a drowning man
A line to save his life
Or would you just drive outta town
Tell yourself don't worry 'bout a thing

It's nothing
Just a pile of nothing

Do you think you could Love Me Forever
Even after I go to war?
Say your prayers and Love Me Forever
Let me know what I'm dying for

Let me know that you love me


Paisley Yankolovich
From the 2010 CD, MONSTERS

Lyrics

I’m just like everyone else
I’m out looking, looking out for myself
I see what I want, I take it as mine
I change my mind time after time

You, You’re a lot like me
You give your love so freely
But the love You give ain’t attached to strings
I recognize the pain that my love brings

The love You give: all there could be
But the love that flows, that flows from me
Is a Death Door key

Death Door Key

I, I’ve got me a flat
And the end of Hancock and I like it like that
I keep it filled with discarded toys
Oh mothers, I have known your girls and boys

And You, You see all that I do
You love me though I’ll never love You
How can You forgive my sin
Knowing full well the monster I’ve been

The love You give: all there could be
But the love that flows, that flows from me
Is a Death Door key

Death Door Key

Blood.

From the 2011 CD, PSYCHOTIC

Lyrics

Baby had a religious experience watching tv

It was really cool, she saw the light

Changed her mind and life forever

Otherwise felt otherwise

And before you knew it

Someone called the cops

 

If you're happy you must be crazy

If your being fulfilled you might be dangerous

If you suddenly believe in God

Then you're Psychotic

 

Baby doesn't read the morning papers

She doesn't listen to music or watch tv

She doesn't leave the house much anymore

(You know it's true)

She can't eat rice or use public transportation

 

If you're happy you must be crazy

If your being fulfilled you might be dangerous

If you suddenly believe in God

Then you're Psychotic

 

Baby had a religious experience watching tv

It was really cool, she saw the light

Changed her mind and life forever

Otherwise felt otherwise

And before you knew it

Someone called the cops

From the 2011 CD, HIGH RISK SEXUAL BEHAVIOR

Lyrics

I know I hurt you

I didn't do it on purpose

You probably don't belive me

Didn't do it on purpose

 

 I know I hurt you

I didn't do it on purpose

You really gotta belive me

Didn't do it on purpose

 

I held you in my arms

I sang you love songs

You cooked dinner

I even told you my name

 

I thrust like a man

And made us both sweat

And reach for ciggerettes

 

We had OK sex

In someone else's bed

 

I know I hurt you

I didn't do it on purpose

You probably don't belive me

Didn't do it on purpose

 

 I know I hurt you

I didn't do it on purpose

You really gotta belive me

Didn't do it on purpose

 

I never lied to you

I just held back

You'd probably laugh

If I showed you my disease

 

Thanks for a lovely dinner

In someone else's home

We had OK sex

In someone else's bed

 

I know I hurt you

I didn't do it on purpose

You probably don't belive me

Didn't do it on purpose

 

 I know I hurt you

I didn't do it on purpose

You really gotta belive me

Didn't do it on purpose

 

Why don't you believe me?

Why do people leave me?

Lyrics

 

The Liberal Soul shall be made fat

And he that watereth

Shall be watered also himself

So feed my lambs and I’ll feed you

 

In much wisdom is much pain

And he that increases

Knowledge increases sorrow

So heal my lambs and I’ll heal you

 

Feed my lambs and I’ll feed you

From the 2013 CD, TYPHOID MARY

Lyrics

A gospel of hate had to be written

It was decreed before my birth

It’s why I climbed the mountain

It’s why I came to Earth

 

Whatcha gonna do

When I split your soul in two?

 

A ramshackle old prophet

In the skin of a nubile child

A racketeer raking up the profit

A snake oil salesman gone wild

 

Who you gonna be

When there’s no room left in me?

 

(Chorus)

I’m Typhoid Mary

Spreading my virus across the land

When history book are written

They’ll say it was with my own hand

 

I’m Typhoid Mary

My disease will eat your flesh

Cut you open with the smallest words

Don’t worry this is just a test

 

Don’t worry

Be happy

This is just a test

 

A gospel of love had to be forgotten

For my existence to occur

So easy for me to cause you lather

To get under your fur

 

Whatcha gonna do

When I split your soul in two?

 

A perfect carnal possession

For an achy breaky soul

When I become your obsession

So easy to take control

 

Who you gonna be

When there’s no room left in me?

(Chorus)

 

You allowed me to erase

Pharaoh, Hitler, Judas, Manson

Everyone you went to high school with

Everyone you said you’d never be like

You’ve become

 

Typhoid Mary

We’re all Typhoid Mary

 

Jesus loves you

But then again

So do I

From the 2014 CD, SONGS FROM THE LAKE OF FIRE

Lyrics

(Lyrics co-written by Leaha McGillivray)

I’m tired and lonely
I’ve failed you yet again
The light has disappeared
Like a burned-out star
My choices drag me down
With the weight of a thousand planets
Darkness seeps through my soul
Like pouring rain


Please renew my strength
Please give me peace
Let me soar like and eagle
In the Clear Blue Sky
In the Clear Blue Sky


I’m ready to fight
I’m ready for war
Even in the darkest hour
I still have power
Armies on my left
Armies on my right
But Jesus is the victor
And all He does is speak

Please renew my strength
Please give me peace
Let me soar like and eagle
In the Clear Blue Sky
In the Clear Blue Sky

(From Psalm 5...)

Lord, how they increase that trouble me
Many there be that say of my soul,
“There is no help for him in God”
But you oh Lord are a shield for me
You’re my glory and the lifter of my head.
I cried unto the Lord with my voice
And He answered me from His Holy hill

I laid me down and slept
For the Lord had sustained me
And I’ll not be afraid of ten thousand people
That have set themselves against me roundabout

The stars shine in the distance
God is smiling
God is smiling.
