Lyrics

I waited patiently for the Lord
And He heard my cry
He brought me up out of the pit
And established my steps

He put a new song in my mouth
"Praise to our God!"
Many will see it and fear
And will trust in the Lord

Blessed is the man
Who makes the Lord His trust
Who does not respect the proud
Nor turn aside to lies

Many Lord are your wonderful works
That You have done
And Your thoughts which are toward us
They cannot be recounted

Many Lord are Your wonderful works!

Lyrics

I admit I’ve thrown in the towel
Most of us have really
It’s easier to live alone
After so many corners of cower
 
And feeling quite silly
And never receiving a bone
I’ve made up my mind
To quit while I’m behind
 
But at night, in Countless Dreams, I fall in love
I win the fight by day
But at night, in Countless Dreams, I fall in love
It’s not for me to say
`Cause at night, in Countless Dreams, I fall in love
Does it simply mean
God wants it this way?

This is a secret that I keep
What if it’s just lust?
And I’m meant to fly solo?
It only happens when I sleep

Not something I can trust
A righteous place to wallow
It creeps up from behind
And plays tricks on my mind

But at night, in Countless Dreams, I fall in love
I win the fight by day
But at night, in Countless Dreams, I fall in love
It’s not for me to say
`Cause at night, in Countless Dreams, I fall in love
Does it simply mean
God wants it this way?

Is there someone special
On my horizon?
Or have I found a new way
To self destruct?
Would that small circle of friends
Laugh at me to know
That I still dream
Of finding love?
 
In Countless Dreams

Lyrics

Switching channels I caught the news
11pm on a Tuesday night
Convenience store, surveillance camera
A minor robbery, a tragic fight

A Vietnamese man comes to America
To find his fortune on our golden streets
Shot and killed over fifty bucks
Bled to death by the frozen meats

In San Bernardino
The doors were locked
Open 24 hours
Unless we're shot

In San Bernardino
We never close
Unless we die

Will I ever be the same?
Will I ever close my eyes?
Afraid to sleep, afraid to dream
Afraid he'll hear my muted cries

'Cause he was looking right at me
No one else but right at me
"People die here every day
You never pray, you never pray
Instead you only watch TV!"

Lyrics

I saw myself driving by
I was headed down the highway
In this one-highway town
I didnt turn to wave
I simply ignored me

I saw myself on television
Yes, on some reality show
The volume was turned down
Cause what I was saying
Wasnt really all that important
So, I simply ignored me

There are some places
I hope I never see me


Who are we anyways?
Who are we kidding?
Who would we see
In Jesus eyes?

I saw myself in someone's vision
Actually it was a nightmare
I was their worst nightmare
Because they were becoming
Just like me
But I woke up screaming
And they felt so much better
And simply ignored me

I saw myself in a hospital
Laying in a soiled bed
Of my own making but
It still felt wrong
I asked, Where is my family?
Where are my friends?
Why are you ignoring me?

I guess, there are some places
I would never see you

Who are we anyways?
Who are we kidding?
Who would we see
In Jesus eyes?

Lyrics

There was a man who knew too much
Boys town queen with a Midas touch
He desired to be on his knees
He acquired the big disease

Go ahead and cheer him on
A couple of years and he'll be gone
He's not like us, his mind is curved
He got what God thought he deserved

And we Stand Around And Watch
Just one man
Not that great a loss

And we Stand Around And Watch
Just one man
But not one of us

Goes to the market to buy Ovaltine
His skin is purple, his teeth are green
Twenty-five look the other way
Twenty-five figure he was gay

Go ahead and cheer him on
A couple of months and he'll be gone
It doesn't matter that he'll be crying
It doesn't matter that he'll be dying

And we Stand Around And Watch
Just one man
Not that great a loss

And we Stand Around And watch
Just one man
But not one of us

Can we Stand Around And Watch?

Lyrics

Outstretched hands and wanton eyes
Caught in a web of carnal lies
Waltzing and mincing as you go
The things you wear flatter you so

Charm bracelets and ornaments
Perfume, incense, heaven-sent
Your smell precedes you as you go
The things you wear flatter you so

So it shall be
For your vanity

Instead of perfume there'll be a stench
Instead of covering there'll be a rent
Instead of hair- baldness there
They flatter you so the things you wear

So it shall be
For your vanity

Gates lament and mourn
Existence tattered
Tattered and torn
We've adorned ourselves
Adorned ourselves in shame
Please call us by Your Name

Outstretched hands and wanton eyes
Caught in a web of carnal lies
Waltzing and mincing as you go
The things you wear flatter you so

So it shall be
For your vanity

(From Isaiah 3:16)

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...

Lyrics

Two are better than one
And they have a good reward
For their Labor
God's favor

Two will never have to be alone
When Two lie down together
They keep warm

Two are better than one
And they have a good reward
For their Labor
God's favor

Two will always
Take care of each other
And if they fall
One will lift up the other

Two are better than one
Two are better than one
Two are better than one
Two.

(From Ecclesiastes 4:9)

 

Story

"Zombies" was an old song of mine that God had me re-write as a scathing attack on how the church treated queers-or anyone different, for that matter. It was daunting, purposely taking on The Church At Large but obedience paid off and this record forever changed my ministry path.
