01  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)

02  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)

03  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)

04  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)

05  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)

06  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)

07  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)

08 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

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)

09 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)

10 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)

11 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)

12 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)

13 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)

14 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)

15 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)

16 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)

17 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)

18 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)

19 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)
