And I’ll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it
Then I’ll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin’
But I’ll know my song well before I start singin’
And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall

Guitar[s] Gently Weep[ing]

November 14, 2020

I look at the world, and I notice it’s turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake, we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don’t know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don’t know how you were inverted
No one alerted you

(I look) Look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps

Never Surrender: Triumph

November 7, 2020

My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all;
and [nothing] is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.

Out in the streets inspiration comes hard
The joker in the deck keeps handin’ me his card
Smilin’ friendly he takes me in
Then breaks my back in a game I can’t win
Jivin, hustlin, what’s it all about?
Everybody always wants the easy way out
Thirty golden pieces for the Judas kiss
What’s a nice boy doin’ in a place like this?

Never Surrender – keep your dreams alive
Never Surrender – hold your head up high

Modern apathetics, you got plenty of nothing to say
Some are born to follow, some will make their own way
Today you found a hero, tomorrow you’ll forget
You’re lookin’ for convenient truth, you haven’t found it yet
You don’t make commitments, no time for regrets
Easy come and easy go and easy to forget
You don’t ever take responsibility
Don’t you know that part of you is part of me

Never Surrender, it’s easier said than done
But you got to finish what’s already begun
Never, that’s forever, seems like such a long time
But I only got one life to live – It’s gonna be mine

Never Surrender – keep your dreams alive
Never Surrender – hold your head up high
Never Surrender – we cannot be denied
Never Surrender – spread your wings and fly

Isaiah 40:31


I Was Raised In Babylon

October 26, 2020

Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.

Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

You Light Up My Life (by God)

September 18, 2020

So many nights
I’d sit by my window
Waiting for someone
To sing me his song
So many dreams
I’ve kept deep inside me
Alone in the dark
But now you’ve come along

And you
Light up my life
You give me hope
To carry on
You light up my days
And fill my nights
With song


Triad: Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)

Help me cope, with this heavy load
Trying to, touch and reach you with,
heart and soul

PLEASE take hold of my hand,

Let It Rain

August 23, 2020

The rain is falling through the mist
Of sorrow that surrounded me.
The sun could never thaw away
The bliss that lays around me.

Let it rain, let it rain,
Let your love rain down on me.
Let it rain, let it rain,
Let it rain, rain, rain.

Now I know the secret;
There is nothing that I lack.
If I give my love to you,
You’ll surely give it back.

“I said it was going to be playing, and it is.”

The Morning After [by God]

May 16, 2020

There’s got to be a morning after
If we can hold on through the night
We have a chance to find the sunshine
Let’s keep on looking for the light

Oh, can’t you see the morning after?
It’s waiting right outside the storm
Why don’t we cross the bridge together
And find a place that’s safe and warm?

It’s not too late, we should be giving
Only with love can we climb
It’s not too late, not while we’re living
Let’s put our hands out in time

There’s got to be a morning after
We’re moving closer to the shore
I know we’ll be there by tomorrow
And we’ll escape the darkness
We won’t be searching anymore

There’s got to be a morning after
(There’s got to be a morning after)
There’s got to be a morning after

All Along The Watchtower

February 15, 2020

One may have seen (and lived) what was not meant to be spoken of.  Still, through writing, there is another way.  What was pictured, what was sent, what was undergone, was to be of what will be.  Through this, while looking and living forward, what was shared can be shared – as a voice beyond a tongue.


And I’ll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it

[They] also knew what was next: a towering wall of water washing over
. . . , cleansing it of all that was evil and impure.


To Bear Witness of That Light

February 8, 2020

A Ready Pen_0001+

And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest.  And he said to me, “These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”

And there will come a time:
“Do you want to eat?  Or, are you willing to die?”

Waiting, in a psalmist sense, may lead to an arrival of bestowment all at once.  Along the way of perseverance, we may also be fulfilled in steps after steps – where the promised gift is an eventual culmination.  From the onset of this spirit, our knowing, our believing, and our faith may withstand any rising mountains – where we, ultimately, realize a lifting beyond each one.


Words of Mass Discernment

February 2, 2020

God and Jesus do not work with, or through, lies; that would be “a house divided.”  They tell us the Truth; it is only within this that we are meant to hear, to be moved – forward.  To see what is provided, clearly, to know what is beneath and beyond present[ed] cloaks, is Their calling – that our learning may lead to teaching[s] after (perspective) silence[s].  Ask, question, discern: What reality is being, or has been, put forth (to follow)?  What is the originating base?  What are the goals?  Take the original Fact of this assertion – and be guided only within those directions.  When answers are of undoubted division, reject and rebuke that house.  Then, strengthen your own – that it may be one (continuously built upon).

“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth:
I came not to send peace, but a sword.”

Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

January 11, 2020

Of-Timing

As I was walking down the street one day
A man came up to me and asked me
What the time was that was on my watch
Yeah …  and I said

(I don’t) Does anybody really know what time it is?
(Care) Does anybody really care? (about time)
If so, I can’t imagine why (Oh no, no)
We’ve all got time enough to cry

And I was walking down the street one day
A pretty lady looked at me
And said her diamond watch had stopped cold dead
And I said

(I don’t) Does anybody really know what time it is?
(Care) Does anybody really care? (about time)
If so, I can’t imagine why (Oh no, no)
We’ve all got time enough to cry

And I was walking down the street one day
Being pushed and shoved by people
Trying to beat the clock, oh, no
I just don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know-oh
And I said … yes, I said

(Background:
People runnin’ everywhere
Don’t know where to go
Don’t know where I am
Can’t see past the next step
Don’t have time to think past the last one
Have no time to look around
Just run around, run around think why)

(I don’t) Does anybody really know what time it is?
(Care) Does anybody really care? (about time)
If so I can’t imagine why (Oh no, no)
We’ve all had time enough to die

Everybody’s wondering (I don’t care) I don’t care (About time)
About time (Oh no, no) I don’t care

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

I will praise thee forever, because thou hast done it: And I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.

For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee,
Fear not; I will help thee.


[The] Daily Bread: Break[s] Every Chain

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain
To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain

There’s an army rising up ( We won’t keep silent)
There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up
To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain
To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain

Declare that the chains are broken –
By the power that’s in the name of Jesus
Every chain of bondage …

I hear the chains falling
I hear the chains falling
I hear the chains falling
I hear the chains falling
I hear the chains falling
I hear the chains falling

Break – Chain – Break –
The power of life and death is in your tongue
(We) Command it: “Break” – “Chain” –
“We command you – to break”

The freedom of the Lord is here
To break every chain, break every chain, break every chain

In The Light

December 7, 2019

And if you feel that you can’t go on
And your will’s sinking low
Just believe, and you can’t go wrong
In the light, you will find the road
You will find the road

Hey, did you ever believe that I could leave you
Standing out in the cold
Yeah, baby, I know how it feels cause I have slipped through
To the very depths of my soul
Oh-baby, I just want to show you what a clear view
It is from every bend in the road

Now listen
Oh, whoa-whoa, as I was and really would be for you, too.
As you would for me, I would share your load
Let me share your load
Ooh, let me share, share your load

And if you feel that you can’t go on
In the light, you will find the road

The the winds of change may blow around you
But that will always be so
When love is pain it can devour you, but you are never alone
I will share your load,  I will share your load
Baby, let me, oh, let me

In the light
Everybody needs the light
Ooh, baby.  Everybody, everybody, everybody

Light, light, light, in the light
Light, light, light, in the light
Light, light, light, in the light

Victims of the Fury

November 30, 2019

Victims of the Fury+

You were all the rays of sunlight
Shining O’ to me
Every colour of the rainbow
I was blessed by high decree
You were every moment’s magic
Joy beyond compare
You were all the rays of sunlight
I was lost without a care

Victims of the fury
Shadows in the dark
Victims of the fury
Arrows found their mark

So we lived our days in rapture
Like the world could never end
We weren’t thinking ‘bout the future
We had time enough to spend
We were blessed as though in heaven
We were messengers of joy
There were angels all around us
There was none who would destroy

Then the world collapsed around us
And the tables overturned
We were lambs before the slaughter
We were driven out and burned
Yes the world collapsed around us
And the archers found their mark
We were victims of the fury
We were shadows in the dark

Only By; Only For; Only When

Your Spirit: This Is Why We Sing

November 2, 2019

This is Why We Sing

In the name of Jesus:
I was lost;
I was found –
I was saved.
In the name of Jesus:
I found Love;
I found peace –
As He gave.
In the name of Jesus:
When we find the songs –
Then we sing –
In His Name.

This is why we sing:
For the truth (as given).
This is why we sing.
When we find Your truth;
When we know,
We sing to the Holy –
As we follow.

Peace – as I was saved;
Filled – as He lifted –
I was gifted;
In Your Love, I was reborn.

In the name of Jesus –
I was found;
I was saved;
I am Loved.

I found Love;
I am Loved.

We’ve been waiting
We’ve been waiting on you

I am not the same
I’ve been changed

Jesus: The Son of Man: Joseph – Surnamed Justus
They say that only the wind combed His hair, and only the rain brought His clothes and His body together. They deem Him mad, and they attribute His words to demons. Yet behold, the Man despised sounded a challenge and the sound thereof shall never cease. He sang a song and none shall arrest that melody.  It shall hover from generation to generation and it shall rise from sphere to sphere remembering the lips that gave it birth and the ears that cradled it.

The Groom’s Still Waiting at the Altar

August 17, 2019

Prayed in the ghetto with my face in the cement,
Heard the last moan of a boxer, seen the massacre of the innocent
Felt around for the light switch, became nauseated.
She was walking down the hallway while the walls deteriorated.

East of the Jordan, hard as the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the page, Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

Try to be pure at heart, they arrest you for robbery,
Mistake your shyness for aloofness, your silence for snobbery,
Got the message this morning, the one that was sent to me
About the madness of becomin’ what one was never meant to be.

West of the Jordan, east of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the stage,
Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

Don’t know what I can say about Claudette that wouldn’t come back to haunt me,
Finally had to give her up ’bout the time she began to want me.
But I know God has mercy on them who are slandered and humiliated.
I’d a-done anything for that woman if she didn’t make me feel so obligated.

West of the Jordan, west of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the cage,
Curtain risin’ on a new stage,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

Put your hand on my head, baby, do I have a temperature?
I see people who are supposed to know better standin’ around like furniture.
There’s a wall between you and what you want and you got to leap it,
Tonight you got the power to take it, tomorrow you won’t have the power to keep it.

West of the Jordan, east of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the stage, Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

Cities on fire, phones out of order,
They’re killing nuns and soldiers, there’s fighting on the border.
What can I say about Claudette?
Ain’t seen her since January,
She could be respectably married or running a whorehouse in Buenos Aires.

West of the Jordan, west of the Rock of Gibraltar,
I see the burning of the stage,
Curtain risin’ on a new age,
See the groom still waitin’ at the altar.

In The Name of Love_0001

Walking alone through the desert sands
In a blinding light someone reaching out their hands
I saw the black of the midnight sky
Turning blood red right before my eyes

I’m simply mystified
A soul electrified
I feel a yearning within
As the spirit kicks in

The earth stands still as I shake
Before my maker’s face
There’s no time, no space
My body elevates
I see my world collide
I feel so alive
This might be my last
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

In The Name of Love_0

Walking on water in a raging storm
I could see the face of a man with a crown of thorns
In the distance I can hear a voice
And it’s calling me, it’s calling me

To testify
No need to justify
I feel a heavenly wind
Like a breath on my skin

The earth stands still as I shake
Before my maker’s face
There’s no time, no space
My body elevates
I see my world collide
I feel so alive
This might be my last
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
