LYRICS

TO FIGHT HER ABSENCE
I'm thinking only of her blue eyes
crashing in the ocean
sparkling to my surprise
(lyrics by kyle)

AND I QUESTION
And I question as your view point collapses
for the engine that breaks our hearts in two  has me convinced
my arms aren't safe without you
take my grievances and take some gasoline
proceed to drench my shoulders
ignite and flee the scene
(lyrics by kyle)

DECLARATION
I will tell the world  I am a Christian
I will tell  the world that I am not ashamed  to bear His name
I will tell the world I am a sinner
I will tell the world I am not ashamed
I'm not ashamed of God
(lyrics by kyle)

CRASS SARCASM VS. VERBAL CIVILITY
Excessive lack of  intellectualism has surrounded me
it seems that I'm a witness to the murder of diplomacy
God. please grant me verbal civility
and my purpose is not to be mean when I say that you don't act like a human being
(lyrics by mark)

QUESTIONS OR DISMAY
When I glance at this second chance I realize it's carried on to me
rolled right by the clouds in flight  for a glimpse of pictured sky
and it's all blue and green
limping along  where's your strong mind?
just back up
there ain't no free ride
don't look behind you there's no crutches by your side
you're just like a cripple with no pride
walking down the streets blind to yourself
there are more valuable things than just wealth
you've got yourself in a real tight hole
put your foot in your mouth
it's all gone like smoke
(lyrics by kyle)

BAD DAY (disclaimer from the band.. we hate this song we put it on there to please our parents who dig it ... so please excuse the cheesy nature of the lyrics!! ha ha it's from the old school of Honyock.)
Woke up to my dog licking my face
you're not supposed to be here in the first place
burnt my toast no gel for my hair
this day is getting worse it doesn't seem fair
I got fired cause I wasn't there on time
what's with my life where's this God of mine
what am I saying that's just not right
God help me through this day so I can see the light
oooooh please show me the way
cause I'm lost and I need your help
I don't know what to do
my mind is wandering and I don't know what to  do
I trusted God who guided me through
all my trials and everything I do
He took this day and turned it around
picked me up and took me off the ground
see what happens when you trust the Lord
He'll help you out when you get floored
I don't care what gets thrown in my face
I'll keep running and I'll finish first place
ooooh please show me the way
cause I'm lost and I need your help
I don't know what to  do
my mind is wandering and I don't know what to  do
I've been having a really bad day
things just don't seem to be going my way
it's the kind of day that makes you want to say
people leave me alone and go away
go to  my  room unplug the phone
quit calling me cause I'm not home  yeah yeah
ooooh please show me the way
cause I'm lost and I need your help
I don't know what to do
my mind is wandering and I don't know what to do
(lyrics by kyle and carson)

P.O.V. ( another disclaimer. yes we like this song but .. the lyrics can be misleading  if you don't understand why they are written as they are. we are christians and don't want anyone to think otherwise due to the lyrics in this song. mark wrote these lyrics from the point of view (p.o.v. get it ?) of a non-christian person. it is supposed to be a call to arms to all christians out there to quit acting dumb and to display their beliefs.  so now that that is cleared up...)
With all my heart I want to hate you and everything you can offer me
I try so hard to resist your love
but it's the very thing that I find I have been dreaming of
I take this hate
and throw it in your face
you come
I run
from your loving grace
I'm looking for a cooler version of salvation
an MTV savior  on the charts at number one
tell the old man to keep on preaching
wake me up  when he's done
why do you ask me if I hate you ?
why won't you try to see my point of view ?
see my point of view
With all my heart I want to hate you and everything you can offer me
I try so hard to resist your love
but it's the very thing that I find I have been dreaming of
hey you holy Christians I'm not amazed
I hear you talk about this God who's never phased
you say that He knocks and I should open up my door
you make it out to be love but it looks like a chore
I spent many night  dealing with my pain
where's your King of Kings when I need Him again ?
take off your canvas hats and listen up  good
I don't need your God  or His loving fatherhood
in the end of time when I'm burning up in Hell
I want to  be with someone  who will listen to me yell
I take this hate
throw it in your face
(lyrics my mark and kyle)

ALL THE REASONS ( I DISAPPROVE OF HER)
When I set out for you I picked up on your grace
you ripped the petals off my rose and strew them all over the place
Now and then I see you underneath the shade of time
and I ask myself why?
why this misery?
what am I to say my precious dear girl?
what am I to say about your actions?
(lyrics by kyle)

THE DAILY FORECAST
The newspaper wrapped in a plastic bag says it won't rain today
I think of you and I put my umbrella away
awakening, you wipe the tear drops from your eyes
inside you frown and you expect more from the skies
gazing at the sky, we lose count of time apart
we choose our clothes accordingly, neglect the other's heart
how can I live underneath the sky
that warms your back or rains down on your face?
my eyes upon a single star
perhaps the same that your eyes are
if only our hearts like our eyes could be in the same place
the sunny skies remind me of your face as I recall
perhaps I ought to carry my umbrella after all
(lyrics by mark)

NOW I HAVE FOUND THE METHOD
BY WHICH SELF IMPROVEMENT CONTINUES ITS COURSE
Excuse my "hate"
I couldn't wait for you
rare is a chance to die to self
so much less the  chance to live
how many take ?
how many fail to give?
every day forgets about you
every night brings dreams  of life without you holding me down
searching for my solitude
to save the hope of peace renewed
when time will find my hands unbound
this time the world will have to wait for me
I'm never gonna fall again
I'm never going to make the same mistake
of seeing you as a friend
don't know for sure if I needed you before
but I can't say that I need you any more
(lyrics by mark)

OF DOORS AND DOORBELLS
I see you looking through me like I have no pigmentation
holy ways just seem like an aggravation
plant the seeds of life and turn on the irrigation
or reject my ways of truth and watch them melt like condensation
(lyrics by kyle)
