about

This is an album of raw songs from 1994 - 2011. Songs from the heart of someone seeking the ways of Christ. If that is not your bag there is your notice. It is not polished at all.

My journey sometimes gets confusing and sometimes dark but I still cling to my Father. My recent albums have departed from such a naked expression of faith and It is no secret that I have separated myself from the state corporations that call themselves the Church but are not anything close to resembling what Christ established.

Since 1994 I have been in many different camps and participated in many incarnations of "church". These are songs from that journey. I have quite a different perspective on almost everything now but I remain a seeker of God's kingdom and his righteousness.

For whatever reason, today I kicked into auto pilot and compiled this collection. I was moved by these songs again and hope there is value in them for you as well. I have to believe there are a few of you out there that this is for.

Grace & Peace,

Track Name: If it's Gonna Rain
(Romans chapter 8, Ephesians 5:19)

A lullaby for broken souls
In the army of the King
Prepare your heart
The battle’s on
But take the time to sing

CHORUS:
If it’s gonna rain it’s gonna rain
Where they may - the chips will fall
If my God is for me - who can be against me

Bitter sweet humble pie
Sweet simple songs
Settle down
Let it go
This is not my home

CHORUS:
If it’s gonna rain it’s gonna rain
Where they may - the chips will fall
If my God is for me - who can be against me

~ INSTRUMENTAL CHORUS ~


The King is good
Stay in His hand
He’ll never let you go
The storm will come
And it will go
But the Kingdom it will stand

CHORUS:
If it’s gonna rain it’s gonna rain
Where they may - the chips will fall
If my God is for me - who can be against me
If it’s gonna rain it’s gonna rain
Where they may - the chips will fall
If my God is for me - who can be against me
who can be against me
Track Name: Doulos (Kemper Crabb Cover)
You are my God and I am your man
And I will worship you with the works of my hands
And the thoughts of my mind
And the love in my heart

If the world could know – if they could understand
That ah the exquisite touch
Of the creators hand
Brings a blur to my eyes but makes my vision clear

Ring rainbow ring encircles the throne
Fiery ring of love around your own
The golden ring to show just where I stand
The ring that binds my heart into your hand

And looking back across the years
I can see that you were constantly there
The constant creation that’s what I am
Cause you are making me into your man

Here is my ear drive through the nail
And the world will know by the ring that I wear
That I am not for sale
Cause you are my God and I am your man

Ring rainbow ring encircles the throne
Fiery ring of love around your own
The golden ring to show just where I stand
The ring that binds my heart into your hand

For you are my God and I am your man
Track Name: If I Were
If I were a stone – I’d sing your praise
If I were a rainbow sky – I’d mesmerize
All those eyes
As they seek your face

If I were a tree – I’d sway for thee
If I were an ocean wave – I’d roar your name

But I’m just me
So I will praise
All my days
In my way

If I were a bird
I’d fly so high
Just to get to you
I’d fly and fly
fly and fly

The trappings of a mortal man
Leave me on this earth
You’ve given me your heart and hands
I’m here to do your work
Help me oh Lord
To love like you

If I were a stone
If I were a rainbow sky
If I were a tree
If I were a mountain high
If I were a bird
If I were an ocean wave
If I were the sun - the moon - the stars-

But I’m just me
So I will praise
All my days
In my way
So here’s my song
And here’s my heart
I love you Lord
Track Name: Brother
I sing this song for the wounded soldiers
I sing this song for those who mourn
I sing this song for my hurtin’ brothers
I sing this song for my self

Oh my brother
I know you’re weary
Oh my brother
The battle is long
Oh my brother
Don’t let this world get to you
Don’t let this world get to you

Well it seems it’s getting closer every day
And people been sayin that now for years
Those who know the word can see the signs are comin
Lord we know the season is here

Oh my brother
I know you’re weary
Oh my brother
The battle is long
Oh my brother
Don’t let this world get to you
Don’t let this world get to you

I sing this song for those who are still spinnin
I sing this song to you searchin for the truth
I sing this song to you who God is calling
Turn around now – truth will set you free

Oh my brother
When you gonna see
Oh my brother
Your not one of them
Oh my brother
Jesus Christ will save you
Leave this world behind he said – it’s not for you

I sing this song for the wounded soldiers
I sing this song for those who mourn
I sing this song for my hurtin’ brothers
I sing this song for my self
Track Name: Painted Room
The beauty of your presence lingers
No one paints a room like you
We lift up our praises and we thank you
Lord we invite you to paint this room

And we sing
Hal-le-lu-jah

Open our eyes and let us see
Speak to our hearts and let us hear
We wait on your glory – Master
In spirit and truth we worship you

And we sing
Hal-le-lu-jah

You are majestic
Yet your touch is sweet
We come here hungry
And we leave – complete
Some of us dancing
And some of us – still
We worship you Lord
And we always – will

And we sing
Hal-le-lu-jah

We crush the serpent
And we dance – on Jezebel’s grave
We’re taking dominion
We’re no longer slaves
Jesus is freedom
Jesus is King
Through us he’s reigning
And so we sing

Hal-le-lu-jah

And the beauty of your presence lingers
No one paints a room like you
When we worship in spirit and in truth
You come to meet us
And paint the room
