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 SOLOS: ANDY, JULIO 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
Boring World 01:44
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 SOLO: JULIO repeat chorus It means nothing outside the Lord
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 SOLOS: JULIO, ANDY, ANDY & JULIO 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 repeat chorus
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 can’t 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 SOLOS: JULIO, ANDY, JULIO, ANDY, JULIO
INTRO: Walking down Mr. Big wearing that fishing cap Concealed weapons laughing at heart attacks Always getting wasted writing crud on the walls Gang violence mentality take it into Youth Hall 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 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 SOLO: JULIO 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
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 gives me the strength
“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 and 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? solo: julio 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”
Losers 03:22
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 Fate 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 SOLO: JULIO 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 repeat chorus
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 SOLO: ANDY Oh God, forgive us for murdering Our children
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 . . . SOLO: JULIO 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
Skate or Die 04:13
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 SOLO: JULIO
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
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
Defiance 04:02
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
