CD 1 Lyrics:

01 It’s Thru You (1:40)

I had to make a big decision
Was I gonna listen to what You say
Or go my own way

I’ve always been a reckless dreamer
I never knew where I was going to
But now I know You

And I’m doing things I could never do before
And everywhere I go You open up the door
And You’re like a bright Light shining out of me
Everywhere I go I want them all to see
It’s thru You

I could get a strange reaction
Maybe some people will think I’m crazed
But that’s okay

If they can get up and shout against You
You know that I will do the same
But I’ll exalt Your Name

Lord You’re in everything I say and o
And everything I do I do it unto You
And You’re like a bright Light shining out of me
Everywhere I go I want them all to see
It’s thru You

(Nina Llopis)

 

02 Better Off (2:03)

Better to have been a baby seal
Thank an unborn living baby human
Baby shoulda beena a seal
Now he’s dead like the 17000000

O Lord have mercy on me
Wondrously You have formed me
You knew us all before we were born
And we holocaust aaway and beat up our sons

Better to have been a soldier
With a gun to fight your killers
That’s all she wrote as the needle comes in
God’s mysterious wonder turns to collagen

But they’re coming back triumphant

(Julio Rey)
03 Get Out Of My Face (1:43)

I’m looking at you
You’re looking at me
You’re wondering why
I say I’m free
I’m under his thumb
Is that what you say
You’ve got to be strange
To follow the Way

All you ever do is cover your ears
I see you living in death and fear
If you knew God He’d open your mind
He’s easy to reach He’s not hard to find

But you always say
Get out of my face

You say it’s not cool
To follow some rule
We’ll see in the end
Who ends up a fool
You won’t be bought
Is what you’re telling me
My battle’s been fought
And that’s why I’m free

All you ever do is cover your ears
I see you living in death and fear
If you knew Jesus He’d open your mind
He’s easy to reach He’s not hard to find

But you always say
Get out of my face

(Nina Llopis)

04 Question What Authority? (2:04)

Hardcore rules here are two
Hate Ronnie Reagan no matter what he do
Question authority I’d really like to know
Who got the authority to make those rules

Question the authority that says question authority
Gonna hafta see for yourself

Left right wing bands, bands without a stand
It is a fad or is it a command
We’re no role models cos as for us
Our Role Model died for us on the Cross

We looked all over and when it was done
The Truth we thought was a lie was the truest One
The Cross Resurrection the Forgiveness of sins
And the Spirit inside adds up to more than a whim

Its the devil’s world so there’s no surprise
Just mention Jesus no comfort inside
Try to hide it by ridiculing Him
Shouldn’t that be telling everybody something

(Julio Rey)

05 You Don’t Know (2:18)

You don’t know what I know
But you think you know
But you don’t really know
You don’t know what I know
& you don’t really know
You don’t see what I see
But you think you see
You don’t really see
You don’t really see what I see
You don’t really see
You don’t hear what I hear
You think you hear
But you don’t really hear
You don’t hear what I hear
You don’t really hear
You don’t believe what you say you believe
But you think you believe
But you don’t really believe
You don’t believe what I believe
And you don’t really believe
1 2 3 4

(Isaiah 44:18 Romans 11:8)
(Nina Llopis – 1986)

06 Kill Satan (3:30)

He’s the one that pushes you into the jaws of sin
He’s there when innocence ends & tortures begin
He’s in every drugland & The Bible belt
Tells you it’s all in your mind
Tells you all is well
I’m gonna hear those demons cry out
In one tortured scream
Controlling the controllers he gives no one a chance
He’s got a gun in his hand he’s gonna see you dance
He’s the instigator of teenage suicides
He’s the one who’s trying to give man his cyanide
I’ll be there when the time comes to stand
Next to that pit of fire
I’ll be there when the moment of truth
Overtakes the father of liars
For he was always there when I was lying & hating
So I’ll be there when the time comes
For the Lamb to kill Satan
(Julio Rey – 1986)
07 It’s Thru You (1:29)

I had to make a big descision
Was I going to listen to what you say
Or go my own way
I’ve always been a reckless dreamer
Never knew where I was going to
But now I know You
Now I’m doing things I could never do before
& Everywhere I go You open up the door
You’re like a bright light shining out of me
Everywhere I go I want them all to see
It’s thru You
I could get a strange reaction
Maybe some people think I’m crazed
But that’s ok
If they can up and shout against you
You know that I can do the same
But I’ll exalt Your name
& Lord You’re in everything I say & do
& You’re like a bright light shining out of me
Everywhere I go I want them all to see
It’s thru You

(Nina Llopis – 1985)

08 The Law Of Love (3:34)

The world has laws for this and that
But there’s only one law
It’s called the law of love
When Jesus came down to save men from sin
He came with a law
It’s called the law of love
In your hearts keep His words
Accept the teaching that He endured
He suffered a lot for your sins & mine
So He can stop satan from robbing you blind
It’s the law of love, for you too, see
It’s the law of love for you & me
Todays the day that Jesus will come in
To relieve yourself from the bondage of sin
His high is better than any pill
I don’t need drugs to get my thrill

(Robbie Christie – 1986)
08 Throwaway (2:01)

“I cant do anything for you
Lord I’ve got so much to do
Look @ my life You blessed it well
I don’t even have to worry bout Hell”
Just another throwaway
“I’ll finish the race even running behind
If You come back tomorrow
I hope not to look back
After all were talkin about Heaven
Though I hope You’ll set the date back
Let no black cats cross my path
I promise You You’ll see me at church
Won’t you make me a happy girl”

(Julio Rey – 1986)

09 Second chance (2:31)

Ive got a way of looking straight at you
Ive got a way of looking straight thru your somedays
You ought to breathe life
& you don’t need to cheat on life
With God inside you you know that you
Can see it thru
I got a second chance
You know I got a second chance
Don’t tell me you want to go where I go
Don’t tell you want to get there someday
You ought to breathe life
Then you wouldn’t need to cheat on life
With Jesus inside you you know you
Can see it thru
Hes got a way of looking straight at you
Hes got a way of looking straight thru you
Your somedays
He wants you to breathe life
and not have to cheat on life
With God inside you you know you can
See it thru.
Jesus gave me a second chance

(Ephesians 5:8)
(Nina Llopis – 1986)

10 Lead You To Repent (3:11)

The time is near & Jesus will appear
He died for the world & its sin
If you respect the Lord get ready to fear
For God’s righteous judgement will begin
God’s judgement will come to the world
God’s going to judge mankind
If you want to live with Jesus
Just ask Him to control your mind
Surely you know that God is kind
He’s trying to lead you to repent
But man’s heart is so stubborn & hard
His evil ways have a terrible scent
The world puts the blame on the Lord Jesus
Don’t put the blame on Him
He choose us from the start to be His kids
So love your brothers your enemies your friends

(II Corinthians 8:20 Ephesians 1:4)
(Robbie Christie – 1986)

11 Question What Authority? (1:53)

Hardcore rules here are two
Hate Ronnie Reagan no matter what he do
Question authority I’d really like to know
Who got the authority to make those rules

Question the authority that says question authority
Gonna hafta see for yourself

(Julio Rey)

11 One Step Ahead (1:36)

Gonna run to my ride into West Germany
Cause I’m one step ahead of the KGB
It’s cold but I’m warm the Lord of my strength
He comforts my soul & shortens the length
Even iron curtains can be broken thru
& I’ll run Bibles thru them to old Moscow
Let the world hit Leningrad & the Ukraine
In underground services away from Lenin pain
Run hard don’t stop move fast don’t walk
Hard snow you’re there you’re there
You’re there you’re there hard snow
I don’t care if I’m caught I’ll slowly die
But just thinking bout my next running ride
I’m just a guy who liked to flirt with death
Then I cut it too short and I found life
Now I just give it to those that had given it up
That the Blood of Jesus might cover up their strife

(Julio Rey)

12 Death of a Gunfighter (4:04)

His name was Trigger Luke & he had the fastest draw
He’d killed three sheriffs he lived by his own law
1 Day after game of cards & the whisky poured hot
A woman waited for trigger upstairs in a cot
He and the bartender her price but tempers
began to fly
Another claimed an earlier payment
And he was shot down on the pavement
Not dead but never to be a man again
If what I’m saying you can understand
& Trigger quietly walked away
He stayed with the woman for three days
He left town & no one saw him months on end
Rumors filtered in that he’s been changed
I heard he crossed paths with a travelin preacher
Trigger drew his gun but the man had
reached him
I heard he lay down his gun
Smashed his bottle on the ground
I heard he cried that day
I can’t believe what I’ve heard said
He won’t ever touch another woman
& He was beaten by a man
& He’s coming back to town
& 5 men want to gun him down
I woke up late to se exactly what had passed
I saw Luke lying dead of a shotgun blast
I heard Luke rode in at the crack of dawn
As enemies confronted him with their guns drawn
They said they wanted a fight
To pay him back for their lost rights
Luke just asked to forgive him
He said he had a new life to give them
“Long ago I was lost”
His next words were drowned
By the shots
Someone heard his last breaths
He said “Lord forgive them”

(1983 Julio Rey)

13 Better Off (1:58)

Better to have been a baby seal
Thank an unborn living baby human
Baby shoulda beena a seal
Now he’s dead like the 17000000

O Lord have mercy on me
Wondrously You have formed me
You knew us all before we were born
And we holocaust aaway and beat up our sons

Better to have been a soldier
With a gun to fight your killers
That’s all she wrote as the needle comes in
God’s mysterious wonder turns to collagen

But they’re coming back triumphant

(1985 Julio Rey)

14 Lead Us to Salvation (2:12)

Jesus is the One who leads us to salvation
He is the One that really really cares
He is the One who gave us our salvation
He is the One who never ever fears
You don’t believe God made creation
You don’t believe he’s the One to fear
You don’t think that Jesus is the answer
But let me tell you cause satan is at your ear
Get Right!

(Hebrews 2)
(1986 Robbie Christie)

15 Take Him Home (3:09)

I got a new direction
I want You here inside of my life
I’m looking for perfection
I never saw it till I found You
I want to take You home
I’ll never be alone
I’ve got You in my
I’ve got You here in my life
I was in the strangest places
I never could find anything but heartache
I found You in the Word
I know You only died for my sake
So I’ll take the Word home
I’ll never be alone
I’ve got You here in my life
You were there from the beginning
I only wished I knew You back then
I got my head thinking clearly
I don’t need to look around for a new thing
I’ve got You in my home
I’ll never be alone
I’ve got You here in my heart

(John 14:17 & 4:23)
(1986 Llopis)

16 Get Out Of My Face (1:29)

I’m looking at you
You’re looking at me
You’re wondering why
I say I’m free
I’m under his thumb
Is that what you say
You’ve got to be strange
To follow the Way

All you ever do is cover your ears
I see you living in death and fear
If you knew God He’d open your mind
He’s easy to reach He’s not hard to find

But you always say
Get out of my face

You say it’s not cool
To follow some rule
We’ll see in the end
Who ends up a fool
You won’t be bought
Is what you’re telling me
My battle’s been fought
And that’s why I’m free

All you ever do is cover your ears
I see you living in death and fear
If you knew Jesus He’d open your mind
He’s easy to reach He’s not hard to find

But you always say
Get out of my face

(1985 Llopis)

17 I Can’t Hide His Name (3:35)

I seen you before
You look the other way
I want to say Do you want me to stay
or go away?
I’ve told you my story
I can’t hide His Name – Jesus is my glory
I’m not the same
No I’m not the same
You look to me like you’re so sad
But you don’t have to feel that way
You can know Him like I do
Give your heart to Him today

(1986 Llopis)

18 It’s a Crazed World (2:46)

I’m not of the world but I’m in
Jesus can free you from sin
The sins of the world won’t pay
His love fills the earth all day
If you’re of the world and not in
& You happen to die in your sins
The Lord will judge you on that day
& boy you’re gonna pay pay pay
It’s a crazed world today
If you want to live for Jesus
Accept the Lord today
Just receive Him into your heart
& tell satan to depart

(2 Pet. 3:10 Matt 9:6 6:19-21
Jeremiah 22:29 John 3:3-21, 31-36
2 Cor 5:1 James 3:14)
(1986 Robbie Christie)

19 Non Religion (1:59)

I don’t need no religion cos I got the Lord
Don’t need to work up to Him cos He came
Down & did it all
Don’t need no barefoot pilgrimages
Don’t need no porcelain images
Don’t need no candles lit
Don’t need no penance sit
Don’t need no religion
Jesus came & touched me
Don’t need no religion
He came down & changed me
Don’t need no religion
Don’t have to do a thing
Don’t need no religion
If I want to it’s out of loving Him
By faith
I don’t need no religion don’t need
No load on my back
No fall down no failure
No asceticism no fall back
I thought that I would work my way
Into God’s kingdom someday
But He let me know in time
Now I’m in His kingdom
And He’s ruling mine

(1986 Julio Rey)

20 Emergency (2:58)

I was thinking about
What you’ve done in my heart
How You changed my life
& now You are my Lord
& I was thinking about
How much I had heard about You
Then I read your Word
& You were everything they said
That You would be
Now that I’ve changed
I see You all the time
You are the Lord of my life
I just want to glorify You
In everything I do…
Emergency

(1986 Llopis)

 

21 Revolution in the Heart (2:53)

There is no earthly solution
Rebels against every revolution
All you end up with is a final solution
Either die or live in disillusion
Greed & lust for power
Alway waiting to take over
Don’t expect it to stop
Till there’s a revolution in the heart
Old revolutionaries are forgetting
The things they used to do
Now just regretting
I leave it up to God, it’s all in His Hands
I see things happen I get more
convinced of that
If there was no need for salvation
Then there would not be war
If man’s heart were not evil
No one would be starved
For money will never quench
That vague elusive inner need
Neither will being a working class hero
Nor pride in humanitarian deeds
Lets get down to it, the Lord created us all
& His standard is what will judge us all
You can start the revolution
Just by believing
& Jesus will end the devils’ deceiving

(1986 Julio Rey)

22 No One’s An Atheist (3:04)

He was nobody’s fool he always knew what he was
Just a bunch of molecules no spirits or souls to speak of
He turned his back on God
Spat on those offering His love
He was in charge of his life
Til something happened to his wife
No one’s an atheist when you’re looking at death in the face
Sit down blubbering trying to pray before it’s too late
Trying to jump out of a fiery plane into the pearly gates
Jesus is so real when you’re looking at hell in the face
He was nobody’s fool but now he’s a puppet with strings cut off
Sitting on her deathbed trying to strike a deal with God
He doesn’t know where to start
Promise to go to church forever
Light one hundred candles a day
To make the reaper go away

(Julio Rey)

23 XB (3:07)

Looking over there
Looking everywhere
Look what I see
She’s looking straight at me
Lord give me strength
Not look with lust
I’ve got the power
Of God’s Holiness
I’ve got the power
To rule over sin
I’ve got the strength
To live once again
Jesus gave His life
To destroy satan’s plan
Satan can’t rule
With chains on his hands
Jesus is the Way, the Truth & the Life
Yes yes Jesus lives
He’s the One that will forgive

(Robbie Christie)

24 Sick of This (4:20)

Sometimes I don’t act the way I’m supposed to do
That’s when I get scared wondering when I’m being true
Getting sick & tired of the same old smiling faces
Running out of people to like, stuck in the same places
What did you think? This was the easy way out?
What did you think following the Lord is really all about?
Did you think we just got our daily holy kiss?
And no failures and frustrations make me sick of this?
Sometimes I get home with scum all over me
That’s when I look in the mirror disbelievingly
Finding out how much God loves me every single day
But I’m always finding out the hardest way
Trapped by my intellect, where do I go from here?
Just turn off the lights & go to sleep without a prayer
Somewhere someone’s nails are ripped out for the Lord I take so lightly
And with each stumble & guilty pang satan grows more & more mighty
Now here I sit like a useless rug on the floor
Waiting for the hand that pulls me to heaven’s door
Sometimes a sin is all I need to get me thinking right
A failures all it takes to get me back into the fight

(Nina Llopis & Julio Rey)

25 You Don’t Need Him (3:33)

Took a long time just to find you
Though sometimes Lord I’m
Still running away from you
& Your will for me
And a voice inside me says it’s not true
It says
You
You don’t need Him
& you don’t need His love
I’ve been thinking all about you
& how you keep on running away from Him
And His will for you
It’ a game you play
But you can’t ever win
Well I haven’t got too much time
I can only tell you what He’s done for me
And what your life could be like
And how His love is the only love
That can set you free
You see, you
You need Him
You need His love

(Nina Llopis)

26 Calling Out to You (2:12)

We’ve been driven out by demons for too long
We’ve been in the flesh letting it get strong
Cold conviction is the sword into our hearts
Opens up a wound & lets the filth depart
Life without the Lord is a pursuit of nothing
Run in circles till you’re on your knees & screaming
Dive into the murky depths of satan
Drown in it you still die empty
And He’s calling out to you
And He has died for you
But He can not force you
The Lord always waits to fill your life
His jagged wounds spilled the payment of the price
Just like Him you can say goodbye to your death
Let Him break your babel before it falls on your head

(Julio Rey)

27 Alienated (1:46)

I like your name and I like your face
Are you a charter member of the human race?
Are you ever frustrated by the things you see?
Does it make you sad or upset like me?
You are alienated from this world
Talked about but politely neglected
Alienated from this world
& I’m beginning to understand
With love in Your eyes you confront the lies
The double standards and the party ties
My one affiliation is with Your name
To share Your kingdom & to share Your shame
I have chosen the narrow road
Lord You gave me such and easy load
I look at the cross & I see Your love

(1981 Glenn Kaiser)

01 Abomination (2:14)

Oh Lord what can I do now?
Have I done wrong to You somehow?
All this failure in every station
Have I given You an abomination?
And I just feel like running away
Become a monk and pray
Cut myself off from everyone
All alone until I see the Son
Abomination strange fire
Don’t wanna be a liar
Oh Lord what a tough road
It’s even worse when I carry the load
I know I’ve got to give it to You
But I’m hearing lies that seem so true
I fear You now fear Your wrath
Oh Lord keep me on Your path
Abomination strange fire
I don’t wanna be a liar
Oh God I just give up
What a solution to my lack of trust
Life crumbles, I never heeded
You’re giving me what I needed
Broken now, build me up
Like You no one can sculpt
Perfection from formless mass
Eternal truth from dead past
Abomination strange fire
I don’t wanna be a liar

(Julio Rey)

01 National Pride (0:46)

USA USA thousand and one ills
Everyone offers a thousand one pills
Don’t need national pride
Don’t need national lies
Ain’t cornered the market on God
Gotta bend your knees and fall
USA USA heart to heart
Of, by, for the people, make a start
Away from the pride and the dollar bills
Adultery for which there is no pill
The Blood was spilled for all
For gains non territorial
You destiny’s not manifest
You can’t earn what’s blessed
Yankee come home
Facing hell alone
Hold out your hand
For the flames know no flag

(Julio Rey)

02 He Won’t Take a Joke (3:42)

666 and pentagrams on the wall
Dark kingdoms decay and forces fall
I need my booze and marijuana every single day
& all the girls I can bring in & kick out the next day
I look in the mirror & there’s my phantom lord
Make me forget the kind of poser that I was before
Satanic bible is creative input
I wake up at night and see red eyes hovering above
Got Kentucky Fried Chicken bones tied round my neck
Playing a game called evil making love to death
A skull-faced succubus with the coldest touch
Fulfills my fantasies of the upside-down cross
A creature of the night lost in my head
Find a metal mama gonna leave her dead
Gotta keep running & who cares where
As long as it’s fast as long as I dare
Try to think of it as a game
When you face the real reaper and say
You’ didn’t mean it when you took God’s Name in vain
Playing with satan’s fire and walking in the smoke
But satans’ got you & he won’t take a joke
Ignore the wrinkles forming fast on my face
Pedal to the metal & keep it hell paced
Sometimes I feel something chasing me don’t know what
I’ll be alright as long as the music don’t stop
First it’s cool til the cold comes creeping in
In waves of fear and paranoia
Don’t know how to get out of what you got in
Played with satan’s fire now get ready for the pit & smoke
You chose to play his game but he didn’t t take the joke
You & your master
Dying ever after

(Julio Rey)

03 No Religion (2:35)

I don’t need no religion cos I got the Lord
Don’t need to work up to Him
Because He came down & did it all
I don’t need no barefoot pilgrimages
I don’t need no porcelain images
I don’t need no penance sit
I don’t need no candles lit
I don’t need no religion
Jesus came & touched me
Don’t need no religion
He came down & changed me
I don’t need no religion
Unless it’s out of loving Him
In Faith
I don’t need no religion
I don’t need no load on my back
No fall dow failure no asceticism
No fall back
I thought that I would work my way
Into God’s kingdom someday
But He let me know in time
Now I’m in His kingdom
And He’s ruling mine
I don’t need no religion
He came down and changed me
I don’t need no religion
Don’t have to do a thing
I don’t need no religion
Unless it’s out of loving Him in faith

04 Old Warrior (1:31)

Keep looking keep looking keep looking
Keep on having fun
The answer is keep on looking
Keep your mind on the run
Old warrior Old warrior
Is it so uncool to run a clear race?
Is any answer to you a lie?
Think you’ll only find the truth of life
On the day that you die?
Old warrior old warrior
Old warrior old warrior
Anyone who claims to have the answer
Is a turnoff to you no matter who
But I pray that on the day that you die
You don’t have to realize you let the Answer go by
When you turn fifty or sixty
If the world should go that far
You can smile at your life of changing windmills
Call yourself an old warrior

(Julio Rey)

05 Tunnel Vision (5:05)

Hey you Yeah I’m talking to you
Jesus died on the cross for you
And He shed His blood for you
But you’ve got tunnel vision
You let the message of salvation
Go in one ear and out the other
Don’t don’t reject Him
Because the reason that He died
Was to take away your sin
But you just turn a deaf ear
To everything I say
And act like this message
Is not for you but it is
Hey you yeah I mean you
Don’t let it get too late
Don’t think you can wait
Get rid of that tunnel vision
Because that message of salvation
Was meant for you

(Robbie Christie, Nina Llopis, Julio Rey)

06 Puritan (0:17)

Wrinkles on their face they doubt
Dress for corporate power outfits around
Can’t see the things I do my way
Feel bad inside when they say they’ll pray
Of God’s guidance I am sure
And I’ve made my share of errors
Just follow God the best I can
And not to be tempted to cry “puritan!”
Pimples on their faces they doubt
Dress for rad trend fashion around
In a sea of ways trying to show God’s way
Feel scared inside when it’s time to pray
Of God’s guidance I am sure
And I’ve made my share of errors
Just follow God the best I can
Sometimes you’ve got to be a puritan

(Julio Rey)

07 Jesus Became Sin (2:06)

Try to look through His eyes as Golgotha approached
Can you feel the bolts of pain that seared through Him?
But it could not compare to the desolation inside
The guilt of every murder the despair of every lie
Jesus became sin such was His love
He was mutilated beyond all recognition
But in God’s eyes He was more than repulsive
He became sin the thing that He most abhorred
And from God’s love Jesus got an expulsion
Jesus became sin
He looked up for His Father in hope on the cross
The very Jehovah who thundered “This is my Son”
Jesus cried out but the Father turned away
Turned away from this filth and He was gone
Darkness had won
AND ON THE THIRD DAY…

(Julio Rey)

08 Change The World (3:52)

So you’ve seen the light
Well what are you going to do with it?
Don’t hide it inside
That’s not what He wants you to do with it
‘Cause that’s how they know Him
They know Him by what you do
It’s not only what you say
It’s what you do

chorus:
You say that you want to change the world
Yea, you say that you want to-
Change the world

I said it’s not what you say
It’s what you do
That’s how they know Him
They know Him by watching you
They could be tired
They could be hungry
They could be lost
They could be dying

repeat chorus

If you want to change the world
You’d better let God work on yourself
And after you let God work on yourself
Then maybe you can help change something else

(Nina Llopis)

09 Boring World (1:41)

It’s not too hard not to love the world
When it’s nothing but one big bore
The few things that we could call simple pleasures
Just leave us in need of being restored

chorus:
Careers and bank accounts-what for?
Don’t get detentions and pass you classes-what for?
Buy a beautiful house and build a wall-what for?
Get a beautiful wife have lots of kids-what for?

The promises of growing up seem like lies to me
Driven by green rectangles profit mentality
And when I get myself far away from the Lord
Is it any wonder all I feel is bored?

repeat chorus

It means nothing outside the Lord

(Julio Rey)

10 Suicide Is A Lie (4:10)

A suicidal thought or two
Or three or four or five
Satan will do anything
But to keep your faith alive
A hole’s been drilled inside your heart
It’s getting bigger by the day
But still you turn your eyes
When someone says
God could be the way
No. I can’t see inside your head
But I know the feeling
And I know the dread
You see I’ve been there before
And I know how it feels
Satan will come to rob
he will come to destroy and to steal

chorus:
he’s the father of lies
And he’s telling you a lie
‘Cause he’s telling you to die
And suicide-is a lie

You try and try to make it
Through the night
Everything seems wrong
And nothing seems right
A voice keeps whispering
Again and again
Make this day your last
Make the anguish end
But Jesus is the Way
And the Truth and the Life
And He will take away the fright
And the fear and the anguish
And pain that you feel
Don’t listen to satan’s lies
When he tells you God is not real

repeat chorus

He knew you before you were born
And He even knew you when
You were not even formed
He knew the time and place you began
Yes-Jesus is the Way
And the Truth and the Life
And He will take away the fright
And the fear and the anguish
And pain that you feel
God will take it away
Because God is really real

(Nina Llopis)

11 Internal Pain (5:36)

Why do you doubt
To know what God is all about
You want to live your own way
You say that “God is dead” to me

I see right now that your spirit is hurting inside
You spirit cries for something to relieve the pain
You lack of faith in God is why your spirit is dead and weak
The cries of help are getting to where you can’t sleep

Let me tell you why
Your spirit is hurting inside
You life is full of hate
You want to destroy what God creates

You say there is no God you don’t believe in what you see
Look at the birds in the sky and the fish in the sea
The power of God is for real. Faith in Him will set you free
It’s up to you if you want Him to free you of this internal pain

Now my life is closing in I can’t believe the mess I’m in
I scream for help God are You there I want to know why I’m here
Please oh God help me now the walls of life are closing down
The pain inside is killing me the fear inside is haunting me
I put my faith in You now just take away this awful pound
Now I see what drove me down the hate and sin that’s all around
Clean my life take my sins Jesus Christ I ask you in
Now I won’t go insane You’ve taken away this internal pain

It is hope that builds the faith to strengthen our dreams
Alone with God and His Word is the main thing for me
Know His love and share His word is the Power we need
You alone can’t save yourself from the evil we see
Run the race to win the prize God will bless all your needs

(Robbie Christie / Julio Rey)

12 Hope You stay Alive (1:50)

I had words for you I had ears for you
I had time for you patience for you
I had hope for you I had dreams for you
I had smiles for you I had love for you

But now all that’s left is the love
And I’ll keep praying to God above
It can still come out alright
Why do you do the things you do
Who blew it your mom or you
Now there’s a price

Walking down Mr. Big wearing that fishing cap
Concealed weapons laughing at heart attacks
Alway getting wasted writing crud on the walls
Gang violence mentality take it into Youth Hall

Friends worried and concerned for you
Wanting no more trouble for you
Now the county’s coming to take you
Showed you Jesus and faith
Did you take it and throw it away
Prayers for you.

I will dream for you I will smile for you
I will wait for you I will think of you
I will visit you I will talk to you
I will listen to you I will pray for you

Hope this first time is the last
Hope it soon will be passed
I hope you survive
That time you prayed to be saved
Hope it was real wasn’t faked
I hope you stay alive

(Julio Rey)

13 Oh No, Not Again (3:54)

Oh no I try to get myself to stop this sin
but I just can’t seem to make it go away
Oh no it must be something inside of me
that says it want to go, but maybe I
really want it to stay you you you seem
to be always there just waiting just waiting
for my weakness to emerge you you you like
a stalking giant just waiting there until I get the urge

chorus:
Oh no . . . here it comes again
It’s the same old-it’s that same old sin again

Stop stop is what I shout is what I shout
to myself but then I do it
anyway repent and pray repent and pray
I get on my knees and repent and pray when will this anguish end
give it up give it up you’ve got to give it all up to God
when will you ever learn fight fight you fight
with all your flesh don’t you see it’s only by His power

repeat chorus

But I can do all things through Jesus Christ
He give me the strength

(Nina Llopis)

14 To the Ends of the Earth (3:46)

“Don’t tell me what to do rich boy
“Don’t tell me what I am old man
“It ain’t doing no good to me
“Your good book there in your hand
“Did you spend a lot of time practicing
“Reciting your words so perfectly
“Are you trying to win a gold star
“Is you preacher giving trips to Hawaii?”

Is it in our minds is it in our eyes?
What do we do Lord what do we do?

“Did I hear ‘love’ a couple of times
“I guess it’s hard for me to tell
“I look at you and your teeth are smiling
“Your eyes despise me for my look and smell”
Uttering the same old phrases
Looking for brightness in the faces
Seeing anger an indignation
We left God out of the equation

It’s in our minds it’s in our eyes
What do we do Lord tell us what to do?

Once I spoke the same old joyful words
And I said them with conviction
And that fire still burns inside
Though my world put a mote in my eye
Makes it harder to see the prize

Hades sufferers cry out
From doom’s other side
“Warn my family warn my friends
“Bring them to Jesus from satan’s lies”

15 Losers (3:13)

The empires are crumbling how the mighty have fallen
Electric church short circuit is this what they’ve been sowing?
Are they really aberrations mutants out of God’s will?
and if they’re really saved are they in for the early kill?

chorus:
Ten little Indians one by one
Fat fortune luck? points it’s gun
God is dead all will say
Soul by soul burns away
Look in the Bible Old Testament failures
Moses hit the rock Noah drunk and naked
For a woman David murdered Solomon took idols
And a few years later Peter’s three denials

repeat chorus

It’s not the amounts of money, it’ll all perish in the end
And it’s not the people who gave of their heart God will prize them in the end
And it’s not he ones who stole God will know how to deal with them
It’s the ones that now may never believe they’re the losers in the end

We’ve got to open our hearts we’ve got to hit the ground
Cry on your knees eyes closed face down
I know my failures as darkness covers the world
And I am no better I’m in the hands of the Lord

(Julio Rey)

16 Who’s the Victim (3:31)

Oh God
Oh God
Please say this can’t be
This morning they said
There’s a baby inside of me
They’re telling me that I
Should make it go away
To start my life over
I’d better do what they say

And they say you’re not really a baby
You’re just a fetus
And you’re not even formed
And they say that I won’t remember you
And they say that I will not think of you
And they say you’ll be just a faded memory

Well they lied-they lied
You see it isn’t true
Because every day I think of you
And what it would be like
To hold you in my arms
I never meant to kill you
I never meant to do you any harm

But they said you weren’t a baby
You were just a fetus
And you didn’t need to be born
But on that day they lied to me
You were alive inside but they just couldn’t see
You are always a living memory
And only a loving God could forgive me

Oh God, forgive us for murdering
Our children

(Nina Llopis)

17 I can’t find it in My Heart (2:23)

I know it’s like this everywhere
But I can’t help it I’ve got to care
If only cause it’s hit me in the face
Lost a few notches in the spiritual rat race
Seems some church brothers lied about me
Word’s gotten around what could they think of me?

chorus:
I can’t find it in my heart
To forget to forgive how shall I then live?

I’m not in love I just made a friend
Nothing’s going on we both understand
But righteous anger has turned to rage
And rebuke has turned into a war waged
Youth group and service all eyes are on me
And I’m getting getting getting getting angry

repeat chorus

And so I suffer and I suffer . . .

I know it’s pride I keep hanging onto
God will strike me my grip will soften
I’ll beak down and forgive any day
But when they say hello, I’ll probably still look away

(Julio Rey)

18 Skate or Die (4:05)

I know your motto
It’s Skate or die
Well Jesus died
Do you know why

Oh yeah you say that you know God real well
But you don’t think about Heaven
And you don’t think about Hell
You could be skating for the King of Kings
Instead you’re not skating for anything

It’s on your mind
All the time
Possesses you
It’s what you do

But I can see real well
You could skate yourself
Straight to hell
If you’re not skating
For the King of Kings
Then you’re not skating for anything

He will take
All you do
He will give it meaning
He will empower you

But yea I see real well
You’ve taken God and put Him on a shelf
If you’re not skating for
The King of Kings
Then you’re not skating
For anything

(Nina Llopis)

19 Kill Satan Mosh (3:41)

He’s the one that pushes you into the jaws of sin
He’s there when innocence ends and tortures begin
He’s in every drugland he’s in the Bible belt
Tells you it’s all in your mind tells you all is well

chorus:
I’m going to hear the demons cry out
In one tortured scream

Controlling the controllers he gives no one a chance
Got a gun in his hand gonna see you dance
He’s the instigator of teenage suicides
He’s the one who’s trying to give mankind his cyanide

repeat chorus

I’ll be there when the time comes to stand next to that pt of fire
I’ll be there when the moment of truth overtakes the father of liars
For he was always there when I was lying or hating
So I’ll be there when the time comes for the Lamb to kill Satan

repeat chorus

(Julio Rey)

20 The Empty Sepulchre (4:16)

Sunday morning
Still the dark
Mary saw
That the stone had been rolled away
Disciples
She screamed real loud
She told them that
They have taken our Lord away

Mary, Jesus said, I have risen from the dead
Go tell them now that I’m alive not dead
But they believed her not. that He had risen from the dead
He was very sad that they did not believe in Him

Go ye
Into all the world
And teach My Words
In the name of the Father Son and Holy Ghost
That’s what
The Bible says
In color red
Those are the Words Jesus said

Bible is for real the Words in this Book they can heal
His Love is for real don’t let Satan kill or steal
You know what Jesus did when He rose from the dead
He broke the chains of sin that we may all live with Him

(Robbie Christie / Julio Rey)

21 Defiance (4:00)

You say you live by no rules but your stomach must be fed
And you’ll cry and scream for rules when you’re stabbed and left for dead
You say you’ll throw out society and replace it with something new
But someone won’t like it and do their own coup on you

Defy defy

You mock the ‘damned Christians” but you can’t kill the Truth
Burn down the churches we’ll go back to catacombs
Gag our mouths and torture us strengthen us even more
We see behind the blasphemy you can’t shock us anymore

Defy defy

(Julio Rey)
