Rail

Jesus tie these hands
I used to think
that every thing I touched
turned gold
but it don't
it turns cold

and reason guides this man
like spring, and fall
and wind to sand
I sway, I sway,
I cannot stand
what do I do,
when it seems I relate to Judas
more than You
and I can't ever
I can't ever
see the end...

Jesus help me see
it's not about consequence
it's peace
and I won't seek
on my own knees
and grace is over me
It's true I feel, I know it's real
but will I live
what I believe

Receive

tell the jury
tell the judge
tell the world
mom and dad
you are sad
check your name
check your head
I've heard more joy
from some - someone dead

are you He?
did you die on a tree
and I can't help
it makes me think
made of dirt
full of greed
like a theif
making life in robbery
mae a crown
for the pain
and it falls on your mind
like so much rain

receive

too close
too far
too insane

A Better Me

do you and I have time to spare
to wonder why and is it fair
who is it that makes me frown
I'm inside out and upside down

I say we can
I say we can, but we might not be
a better man, a better me

what was it you used to say
better shut your mouth and look away
I've been thinking about yesterday
I'm still thinking about yesterday

Inside
it creeps and bites
my thoughts and head
my patience dead
and low
it grows and holds me
loves to hate me
so irate I...

I say we can
I say we can - but we might not be
a better man, a better me

What If Uncle Ben Had Lived?

falling down the stairs
climb into the sea
the world is on it's hands
then it's on it's feet
touch the silent man
who cares where he goes
stand high above his back
like the ground beneath your toes

the breeze is to much for me - anymore
(I've seen this in people who are weak)
and if I push the blade in deep
will in break inside of me
in me, in me...

reaching for a star
with my eyes dead on the floor
racing all the time
my soul can't take much more
touch the silent man
who makes himself so low

will I spit on him again
and turn myself away
what more will it take

falling down the stairs
climb into the sea
the world is on it's hands
then it's on it's feet
touch the silent man
who makes himeself so low
make your self as small
just He and I and all

Joy I Had Was Joy I Sold

boom, I fell
on the ground
what it something sad
that made me mad

feelings to close to let me free
and what i have is what i hold
and joy I had was joy I sold, you see

crown the pain
and face the day
what i though would last
is fading fast

Chance For The Chancers

everything's gonna be okay
He's gonna wipe those fears away
and before the night is thru
this is all going to make sense to you

but you won't hear these words
no you don't have the time
that would be a crime

right now, right away
before it gets to cold
and I know how it kills
and I know how it makes you ill

but you won't hear these words
no you don't have the time
that would be a crime

everything's gonna be okay
He's gonna wipe those fears away
and before the night is thru
this is all going to make sense

The Weeds That Grow Around My Feet

choices cloud my head again
wrapped inside my self instead
and if I fall this time
will it be the last time
for this crime

and anger has more of my soul
than I ever wished it would hold
and as I let it grow
and watch how it grows
it won't fold

do I love this world?
can I breathe beyond here?

flowers have grown round my eyes and ears
the soil it soaks all my tears
how I'm tired of standing here
and I'm sick of that heat that's so near

and if were all right
and if we can't be wrong
than we needn't
we're almost there
like I'm depressed and I hold a gun

do I love this world?
can I breath beyond here?

it's all the same
just falling rain
all more the reason to stay
what is the scene
it's brown and green
the weeds that grow around my feet

Enough

And is the worst all over
did my dreams go south or...
I've a bruise on my head
does it show?

my words sound so strange to me
thought that I was strong
but now I'm feeling empty
and so low

another cup of nothing
cause I think I'm full
and my hands are trembling
for a soul

wait, don't count me down or lost
(I know what's real)
I've held - I've held His hands
I know the cost

this is written on me
Christ is everything

wait, don't count me down or lost
(I know what's real)
I've held - I've held His hands
I know the cost

Hello Sunny Weather

She shook her head and turned away
she said she will not hear my voice today
"you are still asleep and still the same,
same as the day you said you'd change."

and with my thoughts she let me stand
with words that scared my face and hands
maybe when I let my rocket land
she will see the boy inside the man

break this heart as cold as stone
you got to, got to now
then hello sunny weather
hello sunny weather
breath so deep this love of Christ
I got to, got to now
then hello sunny weather
hello, hello

lovliness it has a name
like John and Jill and Bill and Charlemagne
and I guess my years of acting sane
were spent looking for the Saviours face

I know I've said this all before
but I'm sure I mean it now all the more...

Closing Down

goonight
sleep tight
the sun is set
and day is night
just you rest
it's all alright

but it's the same
day to day
why can't I
sleep this away

a headache
(keeps me awake)
my eyes are red
(from trusting to much in me)
I've got to pray
(I've got to give this up)
but will He hear me now?

goodnight
sleep tight
I wish I were
I wish I might

but it's the same
day to day
and I can't
sleep this way

a heartache
(keeps me awake)
is my brain dead?
(from trusting to much in me)
I have to say
(I've got to give this up)
He said He'd hear me now
