A Good Friend

Can we tie each other up
Like meat filled pinatas
And beat each other
With rubber scented metal bats
And have an arguement
Over who is the craziest
Or who is more depressed
Or who is more likely to kill

And in the end, you're a good friend to me

Can we plot to implode the world
Or take it over with baboon lackies
And hug each other
And mug each other
In the middle of the street
With no cars around
Can you believe and understand what I say
Or is it open to interpretation

And in the end, you're a good friend to me

Are we really cool or just posers
Then why are we so lonely
And high school is just a phase
Who cares what you are then
And why do emotions run so high
And dogs crouch so low
But there's nothing else to do
But watch cartoons and play punk rock

And in the end, you're a good friend to me



The Drive Home

I drove home tonight
In the dark
In the middle of the road
I met no cars
And I had a smile on my face
The radio was playing
But I heard no sound
And those few short miles
Stretched on and on
Giving me time
To think and stew
And understand myself

Why is it time to go already?
Just when I began to enjoy myself
And I have a best friend again
How can I stay?
And how can I go?
I try to avoid it
Just don't think about it
Six days
Not much time
Not enough time
To say goodbye


Not so happy

You are Me

The devil feeling is back again
I want to kill you, want to kill me
Make me know that no one gives a care
Can't even write the words I feel
and think
and wish to say
I promised long ago
They would never come again
I want to fall on my knees, fall on my face
scream and scream and cry
until I pass out or puke
And no one will come running I know
I could beat myself
But would I beat you?
Doubt and speaking riddles to myself
You're the one
that makes the second letter come first
You're the one
that makes me talk to myself without end
You're the one that makes me want to vomit
or slam this flashlight across my own face
I HATE YOU, HATE ME!


Humble Pie

I'm hiding in humility
I know I'm not an expert
A step down the ladder
Realizing I'm not the savior of the world
The lines surrounding sockets get darker
I'll breathe my lat "I'm sorry" to you
Sorry for that smack in the face
You couldn't have known anyways
I'm burning, but I'm the one at fault
Why did I open my big mouth?
Quiet, it's over now
Kill my tender heart, please?


Stuff that you need to hear

Turning Point

You've come to this cetain point
Have to make that most important choice
Choose enternal LIFE
Or close your ears to His voice

It's that critical time while you're waiting for the gel to dry
Naked, poor, and vulnerable; it's your time in life
To become STRONG and follow Him
Help me Lord, to change my ways
Drop my nets and follow You
You are the only GOD
That much is true.

I surrender all my soul
I want to feel you work in me
Take me Jesus; take me now
The time is come; please set me FREE



Wake Up Call (Isaiah 53:6)

We all, like sheep, have gone astray
Each of us has turned to his own way
But that's the difference between you and me
You are in bondage; I've been set free

A life of sin, bound for hell
Satan had me under his spell
Jesus washed my sins away
Listen to me! Hear what I say!

I don't want to get into a fight
This is what I know is right
Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ
Paid the living sacrifice

Jesus made me a fisher of men
You are still absorbed in sin
Pick yourself up; refuse to fall
Ring ring...this is your wake up call



For J

Why do children want to be adults
And adults into children turn
When worse become worst
Why can't we be who we are?
Why can't I be me and you be safe?
Why does life have to be so dramatic?
You know what I mean when I say that
Just open your eyes for crying out loud
See what you're doing to yourself
Don't torture yourself
You can find a better life
A better way, a better hope
I Life for One, a Love from another
Give up on all this; it can only hurt you
Don't you see I care
Don't you want to know why?
How can you like awake at night
And not wonder about Something bigger
Or is that why you drown your mind
And blow your understanding away
In a cloud of sickening smoke?
You're worth more than that.
The sick need the doctor more.



Lucky Numbers

I used to be into all that junk
Readin' cards and prophe-say
With all that and more, who woulda thunk
I'd be speakin' this way today?
I'm askin' you now: What was it all for?
Cuz I don't believe in lucky numbers anymore

I don't believe in lucky numbers anymore
I know now what that first commandment was for
Stars may be shinin' my way, but I don't care
Cuz I don't believe in lucky numbers anymore

Horoscopes and tarot cards aren't what he has in mind
Any question you need answered, in Him you can find
I don't need no crystal ball in some dark circus tent
To tell me heaven is where my days are going to be spent

I don't believe in lucky numbers anymore
Satan's tools may now be crushed on the floor
Stars may be shinin' my way, but I don't care
Cuz I don't believe in luck
That life before sure did suck
God showed me his light
Now I know what's right
And I don't believe in lucky numbers ANYMORE!



God Bless America (Note: I wrote this the summer before 9/11. I still feel this way.)

Do you salute the flag when you pass by?
When the president speaks do you silently cry?
To save the nation would you give up your life?
Fortunate son, you're done for.

This land was built on Jesus Christ
Then "freedom" stepped in to cruxify.
It's so very wrong to glorify
Any other name but ourselves.

Why is it wrong to say what's right?
Why is it wrong to put up a fight?
Post-modernism is the blight
That's tearing us from God.

I pledge alligence to no one
Except the great and only ONE.
Don't try to convince me anyone
For I worship and serve ONLY GOD



Disappointment

I always thought you were a cut above
I didn't think you were like all the rest
Just another fly dropping in an empty glove
You got an F, yes you failed the test

You don't want to fess up when I call on you
Conscience, guilt is a thing of the past
For a while, Satan's eyes were a deep ocean blue
But they're getting read pretty darn fast

When will you wake up, and see the pain you're causing
Wipe off the makeup, that mask, no time for pausing
I always thought you were ahead of the pack
Now turn around and face up now there's no more looking back

When I'd heard the news that you'd fallen down
I fell to my knees and just cried
Why must I be the one who must polish the crown
Shine dim light on a spirit who's died

I am willing to help if you are willing to crawl
I won't let you don't I won't forget
I know the first steps are the hardest of all
But just take them and then you'll be set



A Dark Time

I am not the same as you
Though I have a heart and a head too.
You may feel bright yellow, sky blue.
I am black, for the world is dark and cold.

You can ask me if I'm scared.
The world against me teeth are bared.
You wonder if I could have shared
The Love I know and peace I have in dreary.

I'm on the inside looking out
Inside your mind I hear you shout
What is my life all about?
So unfeeling, so masked the unsaved.



Stuff that I didn't write for you
One Big Love Psalm

Lord Almighty, my provider
You're the one I can confide in
I run to you when I need a guide
Loving Father, I adore you
I've got tons of praises for you
But it's not enough to pay for all the things you've done for me

I raise my hands, lift them higher
Praise your name up to the sky
I get tired of phony love songs
Want to make this one big love Psalm

I'm a sinner, You forgave me
Through your love, my God you saved me
From a life that would only end in death
I will love you, Lord, forever
I know that You'll leave me never
Use me now, oh shine Your light through me

I raise my hands, lift them higher
Praise your name up to the sky
I get tired of phony love songs
Want to make this one big love Psalm

I have seen Your power and glory
I crave Your love before my life
I'll lift my hands and praise forever
My soul is filled, I'll sing for all my life!

I raise my hands, lift them higher
Praise your name up to the sky
I get tired of phony love songs
Want to make this one big love Psalm


I Want to be in Your Presence

There's something that I want
More than anything else
More than gold or silver
Or life itself

To feel His Touch
To see His Face
To shine His Glory
In this darkened place

I want to be in Your Presence
I want to live to give You reverence
I want to know you Lod, O Lord, my Lord
I want to sing Hallelujah!
I want to live to sing praises to ya
I want to know you Lord, O Lord, my Lord

What can I do for You
You've done so much for me
How can I reach Your people?
How can I make them see?

I'll shine Your Light
To boys and girls
To every soul
In this world

I want to be in Your Presence
I want to live to give You reverence
I want to know you Lod, O Lord, my Lord
I want to sing Hallelujah!
I want to live to sing praises to ya
I want to know you Lord, O Lord, my Lord


Lost

What is this feeling inside?
Empty and hollow
Why can't I fix it today and
Will it be gone tomorrow?
What's going to happen to me
If I don't turn it around?
Can you help me? I know you can.
Lord Father, send Your Healing down.

Something's wrong.
I don't know how bad.
The way my heart feels
Makes Him very sad.
I read and pray.
Nothing seems to hit home.
I feel lost
Though I'm not alone

How can I get back Dad?
I want to feel You near
You Holy Spirit
Whispering in my ear.
Something isn't right.
I don't know what to change.
Bring me close Lord.
Teach me to rearrange.
