about

Another album along the same lines as the last but hopefully some growth in writing, playing, recording, mixing and mastering. Recorded in my basement while my children slept or at my Church while my children napped.

Spiritually, emotionally and intellectually My convictions remain basically the same. I am nothing and have nothing without My SAVIOR. The connections deeper and the conversations with more impact.

It's possible that no one out there will read this so i am going to let loose - like one does while singing in the car or in the shower.. perhaps ill get caught but perhaps not..

* warning * This is me bloggin out me feelings.:)

My tunes always seem to come out of a angsty youthful side of me that bubbles over perpetually as I record, despite my desire to create something a little more soothing and contemplative. As I wrote, declaring my love of Christ it was hard not to take his death with the utmost seriousness which inevitably for me at this point in my life comes across prayerfully intense.
These songs are some what Genre less, hints of reference and reverence all over. Stemming from an over indulgence in sound.

Like most, I wish to convey what was and is in my heart at the time I worked on the song. often my intent dips into communicating that i have not been swindled by an ignorant doctrine. I have not been swept away by a brainwashing and unloving program of out dated, irrelevant customs and this is in part directed to my old homies.

I was however, taken by force and slowly convinced with grace. I was won over by the clear wisdom of His word. How it constantly seems to relate to and direct the current period of time. How God is constantly conversing with all of us.

Psalm 19

" The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun."

Forever forgiving and miraculously healing despite what you think you were dealt. The dark has no power in the light and is blotted out. Its a blessing to glimpse into our measurement, to be humbled by an inability to find genuine peace and pure joy without the absolute foundation that the creator of all gives.

One perpetually finds as one perpetually relies on Christ.

all have an opinion and in this age, all can voice it. all can create and distribute. The game is different. No sgt peppers, no pet sounds, no Joshua tree, no kind of blue, no Elvis Presley, no never mind, no
illmatic, no kid a, no thriller, etc..
I'm not sure if it can be achieved by this heavy tidal of media. Its a weird reality, the flood was cause by the influence of something that is now impossible to achieve.. so what are you all doing>? is a glimpse enough for you?
is there meaning in your song? does achievement give you purpose?

i doused myself in secular music for an extended period of time which did much harm but perhaps did just a little good. The philosophy of contemporary art cannot be ones foundation. it is flippant and at its fringes wishes to destroy instead of create. It cannot find true love because it worships itself instead of the creator of Love. Artists are seeking The deepness and truth that only God knows.. Pride distorts so much. the secular artist conveys a worldly variation of truth or rather what they are genuinely feeling which is in general melancholy and lustful hopelessness. a partial form of a beautiful creation, a stab in the dark, a distant hope that something real would be found. which am still fond of. Art shows what the world is believing about existence. its fascinating, alarming, devastating, challenging and inspiring

I have been wishing for something to sound like The Besnard Lakes -
falsetto crooning about the Good news of the gospel.

This is all to say that I know its probably not in my "best" interest to say so much, I should be vague and mysterious, I shouldn't tell you what this music sounds like but i am pretty darn sure that this does not sound like Contemporary Christian music. The Jesus loving music i love sounds nothing like this. My music is experimental in style but conservative in content.. that is a weird mix man.

I do however, believe the father provided this music and words, perhaps if this reaches into no ones heart than it was foolishly in vain. I pray that it is not.

The truth that lies within Him is undeniable if you approach with an open heart. He provides evidence in abundance if you allow it to penetrate the hard and skeptical heart we tend to have.
He does not betray your choice

anyway. all done.

would love it if you listen!

Track Name: No one
No one is righteous - no not one
No one understands - no not one
all have turned away become useless
no one does good - no not one

blessed is a man who is forgiven
blessed is a man whom the Lord will not count all of his sins

our throats are an open grave deceiving with our tongues
vipers venom under their lips
our mouth is full of cursing and bitterness
our feet are swift to shed blood

blessed is a man who is forgiven
blessed is a man whom the Lord will not count all of his sins

destructive misery are our ways
the path of peace they have not known
there was no fear of God in their eyes
every mouth will be shut on judgment day

Blessed is a man who is forgiven
blessed is a man whom the Lord will not count all of his sins
Track Name: Lying in wait
crouching at your door
a silent snake
lying in wait
what do you taste? what do you hate?

is the beast that you feed really what you need?
is he tame?

crouching at your door
a silent snake
lying in wait
what do you taste? what do you hate?

the all consuming flame?

is the beast that you feed really what you need?

is he tame?

crouching at your door

the all consuming flame

lying in wait

do you taste?
Track Name: I need you
Father I need you - I plea for you
I need heavenly security
sovereign authority for my family

Father I need you - I plea for you

My infinite dependency
is at my Lords mercy

the Sons - intercession - on behalf of my loved ones - I need

My infinite dependency
is at my Lords mercy
for the glory of the holiest of holy
my body for you - for you solely
Track Name: The I
The I must disappear
Self preservation is extinction
Seek your life - you lose it
You can't hide inside your pride

He loves you more than you do

The renewing of your mind
Doesn't mean you'll necessarily find
The pleasures of wealth
an abundance of ease
It's more like you'll be down on your knees
begging Father, Father won't you space me please?
Your sin is solely
Your very own responsibility
Turn your heart to his divinity
Let it be taken in his authority

He loves you more than you do

Woe to those who receive their comfort here.
Who see the cross like a stumbling block
Whose hearts are locked with embarrassing thought
who see obedience like freedom lost

The I must disappear
self preservation is extinction
seek your life you lose it
you can't hide inside your pride

He love you more than you do
Track Name: Somehow
somehow - through a sea of sin
somehow - through the poison within
somehow - through the line of Jesse
somehow - He decided to bless me
first with a king - somehow
then with my queen - with my queen

love is stronger than death
design is stronger than the grave

somehow - our work is with him
somehow - He conquered the deaf, the dumb and the dim
somehow - your skin is my remedy
somehow - you cured all of my tragedy
and as our bodies are one, we are revived from the dead
and as our spirits are lead o the poison it fled

love is stronger than death
design is stronger than the grave

somehow - beyond destiny
somehow - intertwined relentlessly
somehow - the depths they don't compare
somehow - to the beauty who gave me my heir
his love extends far above our union
somehow - He gave us our children!

LOVE IS STRONGER THAN DEATH
DESIGN IS STRONGER THAN THE GRAVE!
Track Name: Only
Only a survivor because of my savior
its hidden in Him - all treasures of wisdom
its hidden in Him
immortal, invisible and only
blessed and sovereign
king of kings

High priest of all good things
and only a survivor because of my savior

High priest of all good things
mmm mmm mmm mmm

only only only only
Track Name: Scarlet robe
n the garden - where it started
the spirit is willing - the flesh is trembling
a cloud of Adams unable to witness
a king bow down - the cost of service

in the garden - death sold for silver
legions stood down - a sheep before the shearers
His sword is the word that points toward
victory in surrendering - the healing of our hearing

scarlet robe
crown of thorns
mocked by fools
nails through the wood

in the garden - where it ended
darkness descends and a light drifts upward
the earth is shaken - the veil is torn

saints are raised
separation dissolves
a spotless gift
