An Other Life Lyrics

It's the dawn of the long existential angst the antacid blues and your bleary eyed dreams The backdrop to a mundane 9 to 5 life serving remote ends to obliquely set themes Catch a flight to Amsterdam three days to get your mind off things Timeless skies and atmosphere sphere to sphere and rings to rings Caught in a moment of the illusion of self-sovereignty Lost in a moment of the illusion of self-sovereignty Paved the way to a new born light centered in the core of your mind unrestrained and not yet tamed it glares at you thru the cracks in what you know and beckons you to go an unfamiliar way And the distant howling of the wolves and the impending collapse of all time belie the distress of the client who wants to know which outfit to buy And one day overwhelmed by the sense of your own sarcastic humor in your ego's last defense The sunrise at your back and so with your commute now instead another track to create a new you Thirty hours driving to an underdeveloped land where your ID is your handshake and you hold your life in your hands Is this the height of madness or the height of majesty? Is this really the answer or purely insanity In the fields thru the day sun's blinding light a man who works with his hands and a sense of pride fills you like ice and for the first time in your life, you sleep soundly at night Dust you are, and to dust you shall return to the ground Dust you are, and to dust you shall return to the ground filling all the words with meaning building kingdoms tall you think you know what it's all about you've cleared your system and you've figured it out Dust you are, and to dust you shall return to the ground Dust you are, and to dust you shall return to the ground Those you've left behind still wait watchful eyes fixed on the gate missing person on the wall object of the manhunt's call but you've found your calling you have found your calling on you're knees you bow and with your tongue confess memories do not grow dim and your family won't give in but for you it's far behind An other life you've left behind and you've found your calling you have found your calling on you're knees you bow and with your tongue confess That you have found your calling I look up to the sky is there a heaven why am I? And is there some justice or anything I owe to the life that I've abandoned And the silence of the evening so vast so high sends my thoughts backwards But that life it seems too painful to me and I feel inside that here I'll remain for the rest of my life Several months now I've been free and I've come to see I can escape from the city and the job and the family but everythings the same I can't escape the shame now I know what I did not know me it's a problem I can't flee the same in the country as the city can't shrug it off It's the dawn of the long existential angst the seltzer blues and your bleary eyed dreams The backdrop to a mundane long day in the fields serving remote ends to obliquely set them

Journal Lyrics

Reaching Climber Seeking Higher Savior Granting Heart's Desire Target the mark The High Call of God Pressing on The High Call of God Valley's Shadow broken vessel caught in battle dark opressor Target the mark The High Call of God Pressing on The High Call of God Pressure falls upon me crushing on my chest Oh, I cannot breathe locked in a skin-tight metal vest Icy diamond sky above me A chilling night all by myself Unending as the days go by Guilty and a victim of the lie In the visceral Melee I will call out Your Name Jesus, guide me out of the conditions of my life but if this cup won't pass and I must consume it all uphold me with Your strength or I will surely fall Thoughts like oozing liquid from reality to dreams they flow I cannot concentrate but I cannot let it go This is poverty in spirit This is mourning over sin This is thirsting for Your righteousness This brokenness I'm in In the visceral Melee I will call out Your Name Jesus, guide me out of the conditions of my life but if this cup won't pass and I must consume it all uphold me with Your strength or I will surely fall Weight of glory let the terror and the awe upon our souls let it fall Holiness, Holiness in moments we cease speaking make us still let us know that You are God Holiness, Holiness Weight of glory as the chilling dome above blue steel by day rich diamond tapestry by night Holiness--crying silent-- Holiness Eternal words express the conflict is there sufficiency in knowing can we move to embrace? or wait on the initiative of grace? As we fix on unsure reflections as we wait in holy desire at the end of this life this mission we await the beatific vision And is it now, You're passing by? and with our retrospective gaze only after will we see it? Await the day we see Your Face As we fix on unsure reflections as we wait in holy desire at the end of this life this mission we await the beatific vision Approaching that which is oh so Holy, oh so Sacred It was such a great injustice, oh My Lord that they condemned You to death- Crucified You Though Innocent You bleed and die Oh mystery hidden from the ages Oh Messiah, Jesus crucified in all our wisdom we could never arrive in all our wisdom we could never arise Oh mystery, hidden from the ages Oh Jesus, God incarnate Crucified blood poured, our souls to save buried and on the third day risen from the grave In the sands of the desert where water was scarce You have opened the floodgates of heaven In a world of deception where lies would take rule You have spoken and shown us the Truth And The Spirit of God shall prevail and His power shall never fail word of grace to impart/ giving life to the heart The Spirit of God Purpose and fulness behind every moment the sweetness of everywhere being Your hand Causing to work towards good--in fullfillment Holding each breath and beside every step lifting, uplifting, reshaping, my life torrents and storms but divinely I'm kept How can I thank You Lord? I am only spit and dust Yet You love me, yet You give me endless life/undying trust endless life/undying trust I could cry so hard and long that I run out of salt for my tears even this would not express the gratitude, devotion and passion You're ow

Mary Lyrics

Oh Mary, Oh Mary, Oh Mary don't you weep Oh Martha, oh Martha, Martha don't you moan for though they persue you, they never will catch you The horse and the rider are sinking like a stone For Pharoah's army, hook line and sinker are drowning in the sea The torn temple veil, the invitation for you and for me The ancient of days provides the grain for the harvest 'till we're bringing in the sheeves look to the day, when he will wipe away all of our tears Oh Mary, don't you weep Oh Mary, dear mother, or Mary don't you weep Oh Mary, dear Magdalene, Mary don't you moan For though the grave holds Him, it never could keep Him He's died, now He's rising, now ascending to His throne The ancient of days provides the grain for the harvest 'till we're bringing in the sheeves look to the day, when he will wipe away all of our tears Oh Mary, don't you weep Oh Mary, Oh Mary, Oh Mary don't you weep Oh Martha, oh Martha, Martha don't you moan for though they persue you, they never will catch you The horse and the rider are sinking like a sto
