I'm mostly finished with this one. Lyrically, at any rate. Need to write the music. Mostly means "I'm not planning on changing it anymore, but may if I think I need to." Not "This is STONE".
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I can walk in shadow if my heart is turned to stone."

Walk the dark and lonely streets praying for the light of day
"Forsake the light, breathe in the night, our faith will keep us safe"
“Darkness holds no power, strength will hold us from temptation”
Words of reason spoken from the wisdom of creation.

Lost in my delusion, blinded by this sin,
Face the doubts that plague me, in this death I’m living in.
Save my from my wisdom, whispers from the flesh.
The Truth will come and save us, but our ignorance is bliss.

Blundering and stumbling, we are not alone.
Others walk beside us, with the One who guides us home.
Shadows bow and tremble, and the clouds begin to break.
Sound of thunder clashes, with voices in the wake.

I hear songs that sing of wonders, ancient mysteries unknown.
Unveil your singing galaxies and the star that guides us home.
Forgiveness for the fallen, made for His name’s sake.
Take up the torch and follow, Singing "light and love and grace".

Lost in my delusion, blinded by this sin,
Face the doubts that plague me, in this death I’m living in.
I hear words that speak of wonders, ancient mysteries unknown.
Unveil Your shining wonders and the Star that guides us home.

The coldness melts within me, and my heart begins to sing.
Nations fall and crumble, but the faithful praise their king.

That's a very deep song.

What inspired you to write this?

Eh...I realized (or was shown) that even though Jesus freed me from my sins, that didn't give me license to do what I wanted, even though I could take it without faltering. That concept is written clearly in the bible, and something I've always "known", but still struggle to come to terms with. Also, because even though I am freed from sins, I still struggle with them.

Here's another one. I'm not entirely sure I'm finished with this one. I like it, but it still feels like it's missing something.

Tentatively titled:

Assurance of Death (Life's Lament)

Tainted am I called, my need I won't deny.
The foulness in my heart, no way to justify.
One called Savior came, to save His fallen race.
He gave to me Your grace, I threw it in Your face.

How long will I listen to the taint?
I'm still a sinner, not a saint.
How far will Your grace extend?
How long will You forgive my sin?

The plague within this shell, call's upon the earth
Only sinless blood, to fight this sinner's curse.

Your light cannot tolerate a shadow.
(I'm fallen. I've fell into disgrace)
Could my salvation be so shallow?
(Fallen one, you'll never see His face.)

If I was truly Yours, wouldn't the change be so apparent?
If I was truly Yours, my sin, how could I bear it?

It's said the fountains of Your grace will never run dry.
I want to change my heart, this one of stone to die.
I have fallen, but not beyond His hand.
I am fallen, but not among the damned.

Oh Father, this I make my plea,
that Your light would come and master me.
That when this fragile vase may break
my heart, my soul, are Yours to take.

It's perfect as it is, it made me cry :cry: , touched me.Image

There is nothing wrong or missing.

Only thing missing is the music.

Still writing songs. Problem is, it just takes me awhile to write stuff because of writers block, laziness, ETC. I think I'm getting better though. XD But...I dunno. I'm rambling because I'm nervous. So I'ma stop talking and get with the song putting up.

An Endlessly repeating cycle of berry flavored Danishes.

Everything's the same, nothing ever changes.
I've played this same old game, wish they'd rearrange it
All my problems came to stay, I was just to bored to face them

This can't be how life is meant to live,
doing things that I already did,
even in peace I'm not content.

I did the mountain climb, this is what the wise mans saying:
that “Life can't stay the same, everything is always changing”.
The problem I have found is that I make the same old changes.

This can't be how life is meant to live,
Making changes, I already did.
I find a difference but it never lasts.
And I'm back living in the past.

This can't be how life is meant to live!
I refuse to believe that this is all there is!
That the life you had to give is nothing but the same old thing...

You gave me life, now show me how to live
Take me to places where I've never been.
Pull me from safety put me on a limb,
only show me how to live.


A Bouncy Hymn of Desperation.

The wonders of Your heart,
the power of Your mind.
Yet willingly You gave
Your life in place of mine.

Words cannot describe,
the deepness of your love.
So I won't even try,
these words won't be enough.

Deeper than the stars,
older than the sand.
Your love never began,
and it will never end.

Oh Father this I sing,
though this song will never bring
That your breath of Life would
spread and cover everything.

Cover me, Oh Lord,
that I may spread it like a fire.
Fill my soul with strength and
make this life worthwhile.

The days of dark will come,
and shroud my heart in lies.
Take away the numbness,
set my soul on fire.

And when I leave this death behind,
then my apathy will die.
As I awaken to your love and
how you've blessed my life.

(Actually written out of desperation. XD)

The Wombats Attacke at Mid Night.

The days of innocence have left me.
I struggle to remember them.
But in the hopes that You won't hate me.
I promise you I won't give in.

But now the easy part is over.
Temptation wears a friendly grin.
Desperately I want this water,
blind to the river I'm in.
let me drown.

Sometimes this life can seem so empty.
But I'm just repeating words we knew.
I know that You will never hate me.
Emptiness can be filled by You.
Let me drown!

My lungs are filling up with water
My friend has left me to die,
But everything has it's season,
I know you will allow me to rise
Let me drown.

Life Is only found in death.

And I will say that the final entry was done in an attempt to create a song that would've fit in with the 70's disco funk music I came up with. I believe I succeeded.

Another one. Haven't got music to this one, but this is special to me. This song...I realized that it's not about the song. It's about praising God.

Through the Mistral, A Gothic Jokerman approaches.

I start to write a song, but the words refuse to flow.
And through this block I find, a wish that starts to grow.
I want to make a difference, change the world but instead
I create an empty rhyme, that leaves so much unsaid.

I’ll try to tell a story, about one who came to seek.
Workers hands, a mortal man. With sandals on His feet.
The tale is old and simple, with tellings told, untold.
But the honesty within it makes weakened hearts grow bold.

That the hands that crafted galaxies, would be nailed upon a cross.
That the back of the innocent would bear the sinners cost.
That the crowned head of glory would wear a crown of thorns.
That the Soul who crafted ages, would be held to Shadow’s scorn.

That the blood poured down the rocks, and puddled at His feet.
Was poured out like a fountain, raining down on you and me.
That the third day dawned with gloom, and hopeless was their song.
That the angels sang so loud in heaven for death itself was gone

That the third day dawned with gloom, that, like shadow, didn’t last.
That the man returned from death, breaking free it’s final grasp.
That the shadow bled profusely, and cursed the holy light.
That the ones who thought they knew Him, fell silent at the sight.

That the man laughed off the shadow, and saved a fallen race.
That the man called us His family, and showed His Fathers face.
That life and love are tied as one, and both grow from God’s grace
That this life is more than simply things, and death more than decay.

That Life and Love are tied as One, and neither come from me.

I wasn't so sure when I started reading it, but it wasn't long before it won me over, quite heavily in fact.

It's hard to write stuff like that that bleeds conviction, but you've succeeded.
