Chevette

Twenty years ago I watched in awe as my dad drove up the driveway.
More than proud to have a brand new family car.
Thirty miles to the gallon, 0 to 60, sometimes.
I remember putting down the back seat and lying in the hatchback.
Looking at the sky watching trees go by.
I was the son of a preacher, and he was a rich poor man.

No A.C.
And no FM,
And no regrets,
In my Chevette.

The winter cracked the highway and we tried to dodge the potholes.
He never promised us it would be a gentle ride.
He never had a problem though, keeping it on the narrow road.

No A.C.
And no FM,
And no regrets,
In my Chevette

New Body

Never been accused or been confused with a model on a cover page.
Never could've been a superstar in the NBA.
Can't run that fast, never could break dance, can't jump a building in a single bound.
Anticipate, can't wait till I hear that sound.

The sky splits
I'm moving,
I let it freely take me.
This must be the moment God picked to rearrange me
You and I
want a new body
You and I
want to fly

Crutches left on the ground
bodyparts lost are found
everybody gets to walk today
No more tears and we will feel no more pain.

The sky splits
I'm moving
I let it freely take me
This must be the moment God picked to rearrange me
You and I
want a new body
You and I
are gonna fly
You and I
can get a new body
you and I
will never never die.

Never gonna die
I'm gonna fly
Never gonna die
I'm gonna fly

You and I
want a new body
You and I
are gonna fly
You and I
can get a new body
you and I
will never never die.

The sky splits, I'm moving
I let it freely take me
This must be the moment
God chose to rearrange me

Some Kind Of Zombie

I must have been
confused or vain
to let this evil in my brain
Lord did I
enjoy the change.
That You made inside my heart.

Oh here they come
I'm not afraid
There's no temptation
I can't evade.

Stand up straight
I look through the haze
I begin to walk
through the maze.
Here they come
They're all up on me
but I'm dead to sin like
some kind of zombie!

I hear you speak and I obey
Some kind of zombie
I walk away from the grave
Some kind of zombie
I will never be afraid
Some kind of zombie
I gave my life away

Crutches left on the ground
bodyparts lost are found
everybody gets to walk today
No more tears and we will feel no more pain.

The sky splits
I'm moving
I let it freely take me
This must be the moment God picked to rearrange me
You and I
want a new body
You and I
are gonna fly
You and I
can get a new body
you and I
will never never die.

Never gonna die
I'm gonna fly
Never gonna die
I'm gonna fly

You and I
want a new body
You and I
are gonna fly
You and I
can get a new body
you and I
will never never die.

The sky splits, I'm moving
I let it freely take me
This must be the moment
God chose to rearrange me

Original Species

Now my heart and mind agree
A super natural selected me
I see a plan so grandiose.
My very own Galapagos.
God laid down and
He began to trace
an image that
He could embrace
Then He smiled down
upon His plan
and from the dust
He made a man

I'm an original species.
More enlightened than Nietzche.
I'm sure you'd like to meet me.
I am loved

By the Maker who's so clever
I was made to last forever.
Though my body turns to sand
My soul is in His hands
A breakthrough theory of origin
A simple truth that's always been
Fingerprints have been left behind
that point us to a Master mind

I'm an original species.
More enlightened than Nietzche.
I'm sure you'd like to meet me.
I am loved

Stars in the sky
There to please my eye
The cosmos in His command
But He has time to hold my hand

I'm an original species.
More enlightened than Nietzche.
I'm sure you'd like to meet me.
I am loved

People Like Me

I could tell you a story of shame
I could talk for hours on how we became
A flower that bloomed in one day
The next day our glory faded away
Divided by hostilities
Hung up on issues, we disagree
A body that's been torn apart
We're still a body with a healthy heart

People like me, persons like you
We want to be, closer to God
Closer to free
All you people like me

What do you think when you see continuous losers
The people like me
I hope you never believe
Just for a moment you're better than me
The truth is that we are the same
All different people, but only one name
I hope that you will agree
That all of you are people like

People like me, persons like you
We want to be, closer to God
Closer to free
All you people like me

I can't stand by myself anymore
I forgot what we're fighting for
Please come take my hand
We will make our stand
Feels so good to be, be so free

People like me, persons like you
We want to be, closer to God
Closer to free
All you people like me

Blitz

14 kids in an old church van
(14 kids in an old church van)
With a light in their eyes and some tracts in their hands
(14 kids in an old church van)
60 Miles an hour feels way too slow
(14 kids in an old church van)
When you got the Chevy pointed down to Mexico
(14 kids in an old church van)

We all want to run the race to win
Never giving up or giving in
Coming at you like a blitz

They've had 3 flats, and their radiator's leaking
(14 kids in an old church van)
Ain't nothing gonna keep 'em from the prize that they're seeking
(14 kids in an old church van)
They're riding all together and it's in God's hand
(14 kids in an old church van)
14 kids in an old church van
(14 kids in an old church van)

We all want to run the race to win
Never giving up or giving in
Coming at you like a blitz

They're jamming at the show and everybody's freaking
(14 kids in an old church van)
Ain't nothing gonna keep 'em from the prize that they're seeking
(14 kids in an old church van)
They don't get around like ordinary fans
(14 kids in an old church van)
14 kids in an old church van
(14 kids in an old church van)

We all want to run the race to win
Never giving up or giving in
Coming at you like a blitz

Lighthouse

Bouncing like a buoy
Drifting on the water
Singletary solitude man begins to holler.
He says "Man overboard"
I jump ship on the trip
It was a worldwide cruise
Trading riches for some fishes
I've got nothing more to lose
I'm a man overboard
I'm a man overboard

If it wasn't for the Lighthouse
Where would my life be
On a ship bound for nowhere
On an unforgiving sea
I thank God for the light

Legs and arms are burning
Swim against the tide
Keep an eye above the water
So I can see the light
I'm a man overboard
I dream about the Saviour
I dream about the shore
I feel the sand
You take my hand
And we will walk forevermore
I'm a man overboard
I'm a man overboard

If it wasn't for the Lighthouse
Where would my life be
On a ship bound for nowhere
On an unforgiving sea
I thank God for the Lighthouse
I thank God for the Light

Bouncing like a bouy
Drifting on the water

Flicker

Have I become, A target that some people can't resist
My flaws have become a greater risk
If my name is a synonym to love and happiness
They why am I bombarded with distress
My old friends, haven't seen them since I don't know when
But I can send them a signed 8 by 10
My sweetheart, she understands why I'm away
But still it gets harder everday

But it's my delight, to sing all night
Till the sun comes up again

After all my cross isn't hard to bear
It is heavy, I am weak, but you are there
There are times when I am down and fell undone
You pursue me like I am Your only son
My old flaws You've overlooked and put to rest
They're farther than the east is from the west

But its my delight, to sing all night
Till the sun comes up again
Yes it's my delight, to share a flicker of Your light
Just a ray of hope to a friend

I've spent about 24 hours in a Flying J truckstop
I haven't had a shower and 'bout to drop
It really doesn't matter if we make it or not

But its my delight, to sing all night
Till the sun comes up again
Yes it's my delight, to share a flicker of Your light
Just a ray of hope to a friend

God-shaped Hole

All around the world people are trying
Deserted souls cry to be filled
Spirits left undone their hearts are hollow
I can see, in their eyes, hollow lives

And every heart
And every soul
And everybody's
Got a God-shaped hole

You may have tried to fill that hole inside
With an empty hand you reached in vain
Substitutes don't work, bandages only hurt
The only thing that heals is the hand of God

And every heart
And every soul
And everybody's
Got a God-shaped hole

Nobody's meant to be left all alone
Our lives are much too short
To have an empty soul

And every heart
And every soul
And everybody's
Got a God-shaped hole

All around the world people are trying
Deserted souls try to be filled

Superfriend

You're like a lonely statue
The wind and rain comes at you
You'll stand and take your chances
Against the world's advances
You rely on flimsy virtue
No man can stand alone

Does it offend you
I got a friend who
Knows what you've been through
Says that He loves you

I want to sing His name
Of how He became
Jesus a friend of mine

How long will you be posin'
How long can you stay frozen
You'll crumble from the inside
Your pride will be your demise
Won't you let someone help you
Everybody needs a Friend

Does it offend you
I got a friend who
Knows what you've been through
Says that He loves you

I want to sing His name
Of how He became
Jesus a friend of mine
