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

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

Lyrics

It's a dirty job

But someone's gotta do it

You be the brain

And I'll be the brawn

 

If all goes well

And our timing's right

We'll be eating good for weeks

Yeah, we'll be eating good

 

It's you and me, baby

Partners In Crime

Get up early, outsmart that worm

Partners In Crime

It's you and me, baby

 

I hope it doesn't rain

On our special day

Get your gun

We're gonna have a good time

 

Your mamma's gonna hear about us

On the news

Here a bang, there a bang

Everywhere a bang bang

 

It's you and me, baby

Partners In Crime

Get up early, outsmart that worm

Partners In Crime

It's you and me, baby

 

If we get out of this alive

We're gonna spend our days

On the beach

In the sand

With the sun

And the air

So fresh and clean

 

It's you and me, baby

Partners In Crime

Get up early, outsmart that worm

Partners In Crime

It's you and me, baby

Lyrics

There will come a day

Afraid now don’t you be

Your hopes may disappear

And the sky may fall

 

Yeah the sky falls hard

And the air blows ultra-dry

But you feel so unafraid

‘Cause I’m there for you

 

(Chorus)

I’ll never let anything bad happen to you

Trust Me

I’ll never let anything bad happen to you

 

A shoulder for your tears

And a handbag for your soul

And a hand to hold yours in

And a heartbeat

 

Let our hearts now beat in time

To the rhythm of the band

And you feel so unattached

‘Cause I’m there for you

(Chorus)

Lyrics

Two Broken Men

Two Broken Men

Two Broken Men

Find love again

 

Met you on a Friday

Fell in love on Friday

Still in love on Monday

Praying every Sunday

 

Two Broken Men

Two Broken Men

Two Broken Men

Find love again

 

Your kisses send me reeling

As my heart you're stealing

I am slowly healing

From love that's so revealing

 

Two Broken Men

Two Broken Men

Two Broken Men

Find love again

 

Baby we are flying

As our fear is dying

After love we're sighing

In your arms I'm crying

 

Two Broken Men

Two Broken Men

Two Broken Men

Find love again

 

Met you on a Friday

Fell in love on Friday

Still in love on Monday

Lyrics

Gambling Dreams
Gambling blessings
All through the night
Always testing


To see what works
To see what sticks
What makes God move
What makes God tick


Holding reason and might
Holding darkness and light
Gambling Dreams all through he night


Challenging words
Aggressive stance
Day after day
Dance after dance


I like how this feels
Up against my skin
Gambling Dreams
Who’s gonna win?


Holding reason and might
Holding darkness and light
Gambling Dreams all through the night

Lyrics

I  told Cindi I can’t sleep at night
I told Mike that I keep the light on
This is something I did back in high school
But it’s been going on since I don’t know when

I’m running out of Secrets
It’s tearing me up inside
In the light of day
I run and hide

I’m running out of Secrets
It’s tearing me up inside
Just like Adam and Eve
I run and hide

I told my Secrets just the other day
To a priest in confession- though I’d never been
He told me to stop and it would be alright
But we both know I’m never gonna stop

I’m running out of Secrets
It’s tearing me up inside
In the light of day
I run and hide

I’m running out of Secrets
It’s tearing me up inside
Just like Adam and Eve
I run and hide

I got on my knees and tried to pray
“Jesus, you’re the last chance that I have”
Maybe He’ll tell me I’m not so bad after all
Or maybe He’ll just wipe my sins away

I’m sorry but these are my Secrets
I’m sorry but this is the truth
I’m sorry but these are my Secrets
Maybe I’ll do better next time


I’m holding Jesus’ heart in my hand
Consumed by His love
And washed in the blood of the Lamb

Lyrics

All us saints
We’re so distracted
So all complaints
Become directed

Toward All small groups
That aren’t protected
By all the people
Who aren’t affected

All around the world
Whoever you are
You have the right to be saved
It’s like buying a car

You can walk right in
Say, “It’s my turn now”
Lay down your sin
And in the Throne Room bow
Now Take A Bow

Who’s to say
What your path should
Look like today
And what would be good

Who’s to scream
Up in your face
You’re not to dream
You’re out of place

All around the world
Whoever you are
You have the right to be saved
The journey’s not that far

You can turn around
See Jesus now
Lay down your life
And in the Throne Room bow
Now Take A Bow

All us saints
We’re so distracted
So all complaints
Become directed
Toward all small groups
That aren’t protected

Lyrics

Go ahead and judge

If it makes you feel better

You made me this way

 

Go ahead and laugh

If it makes you feel better

You made me this way

 

I don't need anything from anyone

I'm a series of one night stands

Spray me down baby and I'm good to go

Don't bother giving me your number

 

I'm a product of your churches

Your schools, your cemeteries

Your Pagan rituals , your bad examples

 

Your divorces, your molestations

Your junk food and reality shows

 

I could sing a sweeter song

If I had sweeter inspiration, amen...

 

Look At Me

I'm Your Baby...

 

Go ahead and cry

If it makes you feel better

You made me this way

 

Go ahead and leave

If it makes you feel better

You made me this way

 

I'm not here for your peace of mind

I'm not here for your convenience

Everybody needs evil to blame

I'm glad I can be of assistance

 

With you hypocrisy democracy, your poli-tricks and reindeer games

It's unsafe to eat and drink

And find love and hope

 

Jesus gets buried in the blarney rubble

Mary starts to weep all over again

 

Elvis is officially irrelevant

And finally leaves the building, amen...

 

Look At Me

I'm Your Baby...

Lyrics

You broke my heart not the heart of the matter

You think you're so smart but you're stupid

You're a big fat baby getting fatter and fatter

And I don't wanna think about what you did

 

I may have lost the will to love

But I found The Will To Live

Every single moment of the day

Ever since you went away

 

You're a big fat baby with a capital "B"

"B" is for what bulls drop in a pasture

Staying up late talking trash about me

Do you even know what it is you're after?

 

I may have lost the will to love

But I found The Will To Live

Every single moment of the day

Ever since you went away

 

A friend asked, "How come you're no hitter?"

I didn't bother with a reply

The days are so long and my sauce is turning bitter

Bitter but no way I'll ever cry

 

Except when I'm alone

Staring at the telephone

Except when I'm alone

Staring at the phone

Screamin', "Why baby, why baby. why baby. why?"

 

I may have lost the will to love

But I found The Will To Live

Every single moment of the day

Ever since you went away

Lyrics

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're shit, you're shit, you’re so ugly”
