Barroom Hitz
Parody of "Ballroom Blitz" performed by Sweet and written by Mike Chapman & Nicky Chinn
(Titus 1:15, Judges 6:25-28, Matthew 13:52, 2 Corinthians 5:17)

Are you ready, Keith? Uh huh.
Stanley? Yeah!
Ted? OK.
Alright, fellas, let's go!

Oh, kids benefit from Mozart
Even if they think the dude's a dweeb, uh huh
With "Twinkle Twinkle's" words changed
That guy could help you learn your ABC's
Oh, I see a man with the flag sing the National Anthem
In his eyes an incredible song
But the bar on the corner's where the poet and lawyer
Named Francis Scott Key got that music from

Oh, yeah, it was enlightening – everybody's rewriting
And the music they're spoofing – and they all starting new things!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
And the plan of attack is give 'em Bible facts
With reworded tunes from barroom hits
And the Salvation Army and dinosaurs like Barney
Use converted tunes that's all our group did
Borrowed bits of barroom hits, borrowed bits of barroom hits

Oh, reaching out to unchurched
Teaching those who occupy the pews
If some may call us posers
I really feel there's nothing left to prove
And the monks in the black robes sang contrafactums
Their praises ascend to the sky
If the Lord's in your corner, then everything's purer
He can cure you in the twinkling of an eye

Oh, yeah, if you think Wesley -- would panic at Presley
Then on next Christmas Eve, please -- take a good look at "Greensleeves"
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And the plan of attack is give 'em Bible facts
With reworded tunes from barroom hits
And Weird Al has accordions we use a concordance
When converting tunes with borrowed bits of barroom hits

Oh, yeah, it was enlightening – everybody's rewriting
And the music they're spoofing – and they all starting new things!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And the plan of attack is give 'em Bible facts
With reworded tunes from barroom hits
And the girl Fannie Crosby employed that quite a lot
She used converted tunes that's all our group did
Borrowed bits of barroom hits

Let's fix the barroom hits, let's fix the barroom hits
Let's fix the barroom hits, let's fix the barroom hits
Yeah, fix the barroom hits!

Titus 1:15
To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.


Guard Your Candle
Parody of "Hard to Handle" performed by The Black Crowes and written by Allen Jones, Al Bell & Otis Redding
(Matthew 5:14-16; John 1:4-5, 3:19, 8:12; Isaiah 42:3, 2 Timothy 1:14)

He saved me, here I am -- I'm a man God redeemed
My candle is much too hot to be locked up at home with me
I can drop a bushel on it that I got from the corner store
But when my wick stops glowin' I'm only a glob of some wax for floors

Sure, some things will come tryin' to snuff it
They can't snuff it if you trust the Lord above and
Give it everything -- never hide your candle
'Cause your Papa wants to show off His handiwork, yes, uh, now

I know He's the light of the world, and I'm a lamp He made to share it
I know He's got some other lamps, but we can all do better than this
Hey, my lamp don't need a shade I'm gonna illuminate the world He made
Now's not the time to cover Jesus up so make sure that they see

Boy they'll come along in time tryin' to snuff it
I ain't nothin' if I can't stand sufferin'
Give it everything -- never hide your candle
'Cause your Papa wants to show off His handiwork, yes, uh, now
Yeah, guard your candle now

He saved me – here I am -- look in Matthew 5:14
I'm a city up on top of a mountain for the world to see
I know God He put me up there, and I got some important chores
When I get those done then all you are gonna come and glorify the Lord

Sure they'll come along in time tryin' to snuff it
I ain't bluffin', man, I'm quite sure of it
Give it everything -- never hide your candle
'Cause your Papa wants to show off His handiwork, yes, uh, now
Ah, guard your candle now
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
LEAD

Boy they'll come along in time tryin' to snuff it
I ain't runnin' like a scared Miss Muffet
Give it everything -- never hide your candle
'Cause your Papa wants to show off His handiwork, yes, uh, now

Guard your candle now

Baby, don't snuff it
Baby, baby
If you love Him – let's see more of Him
Make it a habit
Oh yeah – guard your candle

2 Timothy 1:14
Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you—guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.


Lived the Day You Died
Parody of "Love the Way You Lie" performed by Eminem featuring Rihanna and written by Marshall Mathers, Alexander Grant & Holly Hafermann
(Matthew 2:11; Mark 15:23; John 11:49-52, 19:39; Isaiah 53:1-12; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7)

Don't understand why they brought You myrrh
But that's all right because I like Your day of birth
Don't understand why You'd heal, me, Christ
But that's all right because I lived the day You died
I lived the day You died

I can't tell you what a thrill it is
Like in bowling when you got your first strike
It's like now I'm hitchhiking on the turnpike
I broke free from doin' life, now it's midnight
Then God comes along with a ride, invites me inside
I offer stuff to compensate
He doesn't want no payment – says, Brother, it's all be covered
It's tough to take – I say, Lord, I'm a lousy clown, why'd You stop to save me
You must be crazy, man, I'm such a waste
Where we goin'? I'm redeeming you – no you ain't
I'm bad, and someone like that can't become a saint
It's too ingrained – He said, there's no one good – you're goin' straight
I took command, and I'm winnin' you back – your soul is saved
But, Lord, my past was awful, I feel so estranged
I'm trapped – Who trapped you? I don't see no ball and chain
I laid hands on you – you'll never do this alone again
I guess you don't know the Lord's grace

Don't understand why they brought You myrrh
But that's all right because I like Your day of birth
Don't understand why You'd heal, me, Christ
But that's all right because I lived the day You died
I lived the day You died
I lived the day You died

You know, they struck His body so much
He could breathe when they hit Him
But Jesus, He did not refuse, even though they whipped Him
Not a warm, fuzzy feeling, gettin' killed just for livin'
Like He's some punk they didn't know from Adam
The Lord, He said, forgive 'em
When they did those things to hurt Him
Though they spit upon His face and invented stuff to curse and convict Him
They plucked out his facial hair
Laughed while givin' Him a thorny crown
Pinned Him to a cross in the Roman mannerism
Yet they gave Him a cold drink to cope with though
Something infinitesimal, a gesture made
Guess that they didn't know that in their painkilling recipe
Something was left over from a different day
One that came with frankincense and gold
It was embalmer's myrrh
Mixed with wine – He still refrained
You don't get it, Wonder Man, Christ was not immune to pain
But it's not in vain
Now the rest of us receive God's forgiveness
Guess that's why they say "no pain no gain"

Don't understand why they brought You myrrh
But that's all right because I like Your day of birth
Don't understand why You'd heal, me, Christ
But that's all right because I lived the day You died
I lived the day You died
I lived the day You died

Now I know I said things, did things that were pretty mean
And we fall back to the days of Adam and days of Eve
But Your temptation was bad as mine is, from A to Z
Yet You never flunked the test like I did
You made it clean somehow
They cussed at You, nailed You to a tree
Maybe it was Satan just shiftin' the blame to You from me
Maybe that's what happens when some fourth graders meet with Darth Vader
All I know is the devil's too much for us to face now
The Messiah picked up my tab 'cause He died for all
Though I see sin starin' me in my face when I fall
Though I'm just a slimeball
Took me in when I called
Yes, I'm enlistin' as a Christian disciple
Guess it's time here for me to testify
I will follow Christ even through my lowest times
"Cause I know I became righteous from the fact I know my Messiah
If the devil tries to sucker me again
I'm a try and do my best to just renounce that liar

Don't understand why they brought You myrrh
But that's all right because I like Your day of birth
Don't understand why You'd heal, me, Christ
But that's all right because I lived the day You died
I lived the day You died
I lived the day You died

Mark 15:23
Then they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it.


Do What David Did
Parody of Do Wah Diddy Diddy performed by Manfred Mann and written by Jeff Barry & Ellie Greenwich
(1 Samuel 13:14, 1 Kings 15:5)

Everyone listen what I'm 'bout to speak, singin'
Do what David did and Saul didn't do
Saul was the king first but he stumbled in defeat, sinkin'
Do what David did and Saul didn't do
He looked good (looked good)
He looked fine (looked fine)
He looked good, he looked fine
Yet he really lost his mind

Before I knew him Dave was watchin' Jesse's sheep, slingin'
Do what David did and Saul didn't do
Told them God's plan, "Jesse, that child's meant to be king" and
Do what David did and Saul didn't do
He knocked on (He knocked on)
Goliath's door (Goliath's door)
He knocked on Goliath's door
And helped Israel win the war

Oh whoa! I knew he was valiant enough
Yes, I did, and so I told him, you're the king God's been dreamin' of

Now read together nearly everything that they did and
Do what David did and Saul didn't do
'Cept for Bathsheba 'cause that was a mistake, sinning
Do what David did and Saul didn't do
Now I've heard (I've heard)
He's fine (He's fine)
I've heard he's fine
Let me tell you one more time

Oh whoa! I knew it was gonna be rough
Yes, I did, and so I told him, You'll be king, just believe and trust

Now read together First and Second Samuel's pages and
Do what David did and Saul didn't do
I'm in half of it, that's how it got my name, dig it? (I dig it)
Do what David did and Saul didn't do
Now I've heard (I've heard)
He's fine (He's fine)
I've heard he's fine
Let me tell you one more time

1 Kings 15:5
because David did what was right in the sight of the Lord, and had not turned aside from anything that He commanded him all the days of his life, except in the case of Uriah the Hittite.

God's Blood
Parody of "Hot Blooded" performed by Foreigner and written by Lou Gramm & Mick Jones
(Acts 20:28; Hebrews 9:22,10:4; Isaiah 1:11, 1:18; John 6:53-58)

Well, now – God's blood is – shed just for me
And all the people that are gonna believe
C'mon baby, you can be born again
It's God's blood and – He's got plenty

You know back in Jesus' time – the folks had to sacrifice
Blood of bulls and of goats
Now if you don't mind – in Isaiah 1 you'll find
The blood of goats wasn't doin' half of the job
Now this much is true -- even pagans see what blood can do
You need some proof?
I'll show you Hebrews 9 verse 22

That's why God's blood is just what you need
And God is Jesus and I want you to see
C'mon, baby, to the book of the Acts
It's Acts 20, verse 28

Even Jesus Christ says that it can save your life
So believe Him not me
But you've got to drink from the wine – c'mon now
'Cause that's a sign
Help me – It's in John's Gospel -- look in verse 6:53

Are you bold enough?
Will you be ready to drink of God's blood?
It's a sign of life
You've been saved by the blood of Jesus Christ

Yeah, now, God's blood is red as can be
Scarlet fever burns the sins out of me
C'mon, baby, it can do more than that
It's God's blood and it's not funny – uh uh
LEAD

Now His blood removes
Things that sacred sheep could not get through
Oh, 10:4 Hebrews
You'll have a better way than bulls, goats too

Well, now, God's blood is precious indeed
I was evil but His blood cleanses me
C'mon, baby, it can do more than cleanse
It's God's blood and – I got some of it

God's blood and – shed when He died
God's blood and – the Book it shows why
God's blood and – now you're finally wise
God's blood and – it's only offered through Christ
God's blood and – I'm a little surprised
God's blood and – that you didn't know why
God's blood and -- it makes you so clean
God's blood is -– such a sweet sweet thing

Acts 20:28
Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.


For Just You
Parody of "Forget You" performed by Cee Lo Green and written by Christopher "Brody" Brown, Bruno Mars, Cee Lo Green, Philip Lawrence & Ari Levine
(Luke 15:1-32, Matthew 18:12-14, 1 Peter 2:25)

Would Jesus Christ have come down from His throne above
To come die for just you? (ooh ooh ooh)
Well, if a sheep in His flock is wanderin' off, He'll find
And get you like good shepherds do
Well, you'll find in Scripture, He's real efficient
(At catchin' sheep, at catchin' sheep)
And though it's strange to suggest
We're like fish in His nets, we're lives He rescued

He'll hold a soiree when He finds where you are, eh?
But that don't mean He'll just let you there
You could be next door, or on a safari
But on the day you pray He'll pay your fare
Like Pepι Le Pew – nobody wanted you
(Although we was both stinkers, His love still grows bigger)
Oooh! When God's son chooses you
Yeah, go on, and tell me you ain't a bit important

Would Jesus Christ have come down from His throne above
To come die for just you? (ooh ooh ooh)
Well, if a sheep in His flock is wanderin' off, He'll find
And get you like good shepherds do
Well, you'll find in Scripture, He's real efficient
(At catchin' sheep, at catchin' sheep)
And though it's strange to suggest
We're like fish in His nets, we're lives He rescued

Well, I know it's hard to swallow
But, babe, He's skilled at findin' sheep
Christ can reach ya, Christ can keep ya
'Cause Jesus' love is everlasting deep
Like Pepι Le Pew – nobody wanted you
(Although we was both stinkers, His love still grows bigger)
Oooh! So what's your new excuse?
Oooh! I really hate to ask right now

Would Jesus Christ have come down from His throne above
To come die for just you? (ooh ooh ooh)
Well, if a sheep in His flock is wanderin' off, He'll find
And get you like good shepherds do
Well, you'll find in Scripture, He's real efficient
(At catchin' sheep, at catchin' sheep)
And though it's strange to suggest
We're like fish in His nets, we're souls He rescued

Amazing grace that saved me I was blind and such a jerk and so bad
(So bad, so bad, so bad)
When I was still a prodigal, He told me, kid, don't run from your Dad
(Your Dad, Your Dad, Your Dad)
Like uh -- Why? (uh) Why? (uh) Why evade Him?
(Uh) God loves you! (Uh) God still loves you!

Luke 15:4
"Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it?


Weep Jeremiah
Parody of "Sweet Child O' Mine" performed by Guns N' Roses and written by Axl Rose, Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Steven Adler & Duff McKagan
(Jeremiah 9:1; Ezra 1:1; Lamentations 2:11)

He doesn't smile and he seems to me
Resigned to a life of misery
Yet everything that he says hits a tight bull's-eye
Now men dread when they see his face
He tells them that they'd better mend their ways
And when they still don't stop
He often breaks down and cries
Whoa, oh oh, weep, Jeremiah
Whoa, oh oh oh, we love the lie

He prophesied Babylonia's rise
And said we'd not escape
They came up against Judah's sides
And we were all afraid
But Jeremiah said the one safe way
Was give up without a fight
We said, "You're a traitor and a pain
You falsely prophesy!"
Whoa, oh oh, weep, Jeremiah
Whoa, oh oh oh, we love the lie
LEAD

Whoa, oh oh, weep, Jeremiah
Whoa, oh oh oh, we love the lie
Whoa, oh oh oh, weep, Jeremiah
Ooooh, we love the lie
LEAD

Dare to be bold, dare to be bold now, dare to be bold
Dare to be bold, dare to be bold now
Dare to be bold, oooh, dare to be bold now
I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I
Dare to be bold now
Dare to be bold
Oh, dare to be bold now
Dare to be bold, dare to be bold now
Dare to be bold, dare to be bold now
Now, now, now, now, now, now, now
Weep Jeremi-i-i-i-iah
Jeremi-i-i-i-i-i-iah

Jeremiah 9:1
Oh, that my head were a spring of water and my eyes a fountain of tears! I would weep day and night for the slain of my people.


Special Stone
Parody of "(I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone" performed by the Monkees and written by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart
(Matthew 21:42; Mark 12:10; Luke 20:17; Psalm 118:22; Isaiah 8:14, 28:16; 1 Peter 2:4-8; Zechariah 10:4)

Chri-i-i-i-ist was a special stone
Chri-i-i-i-ist was a precious stone
They're tryin' to make a Marxist society
They're usin' all their bricks made from human beings
But read along in Isaiah 8:14
The stone the world rejected caused a stumblin' scene

Chri-i-i-i-ist was a special stone
Chri-i-i-i-ist was a precious stone – Whoa!
Not just any stone – Not just any stone

LEAD

In Isaiah the world was given several clues
About a rock of salvation some refuse
You read 28:16 and then you choose
But you can find His name in the Book of Luke, too

Chri-i-i-i-ist was a special stone – Psalm 118
Chri-i-i-i-ist was a precious stone – Whoa!
Not just any stone – Not just any stone

Matthew 21:42
Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the Scriptures: 'The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes'?"


Puffed-Up Cliques
Parody of Pumped Up Kicks performed by Foster the People and written by Mark Foster
(Hebrews 4:12, 13:12-14; Matthew 13:45-46; John 15:18-25)

Robert's caught in quicksand
He's lookin' 'round the room for help but he's stranded
Got untold secrets
Ain't comin' out of his mouth, he's a careful kid
Or from the clique he'll be shunned
And he's gettin' blasι – he reads the Book for somethin'
I don't think he knows what
But he's huntin' for truth, yeah, he's hungry for truth

All the other kids with their puffed-up cliques
They're better than everyone, how come, how come?
All the other kids with their puffed-up cliques
I'd rather run with the Son back where there's no bullies
All the other kids with their puffed-up cliques
They get to shun everyone outside their fun
All the other kids with their puffed-up cliques
I'd rather run with the Son that's where it's the coolest

Said His word's a long blade
It can cuts ya both ways, and if Robert obeys it
He thinks he'll be ostracized
But didn't Jesus mention it's a sacrifice?
He weighs it for a long time
Then in spite of the danger, leaves the clique forever
He's no longer secret
Sayin' pearls of value also cost you a bit

Hebrews 13:13
Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore.


Too Pregnant
Parody of "Two Princes" performed by The Spin Doctors and written by Christopher Barron, Aaron Corness, Eric Schenkman & Mark White
(Jeremiah 1:5; Isaiah 5:20)

Yeah, one girl's pregnant, she'll inform you
She's gonna have a baby
An infant, who'll be born soon – she's growin' big now
One girl down the street is talkin' – she's also pregnant
But this one, she says she wants the right to stop if
It's inconvenient
Yeah! We have a little bitty disagreement
And you've seen it on the bumper stickers
Rubber baby buggy bumpers

Listen: we've got to print the facts 'cause
A lot's been said now
We got some linguistical gymnastics
'Bout being pregnantYou carry him, you call him "Bill" or "Tony"
Or how 'bout "Fred," now?
You terminate, the doctor says it's only
A fetus then, now

Pretty words for dirty deeds
Call it what you want to baby can't you see
It ain't God you fool with your rhetoric
I know what it is and baby so does He
I know what it is and baby so does He so

If you want to call it a baby, just go ahead now
But if you'd like to terminate it, just don't forget now
The issue, isn't what you call it, it's what it is now
And if you'd like to think about it, you know it is now

One last thing left to say before you just walk away now
If you've been through an abortion, I do not hate you
God knows how much you have gone through -- He felt your pain now
And if you want someone to talk to it's not too late now

Here right in United States
It's against the law to break an eagle's egg
If we protect bald eagles not little babies
What we gonna tell Him on the judgment day
Why not get forgiveness while there's time to pray?
CHORUS

Oh can't you see? You won't regret keeping your pregnancy
C'mon, c'mon, and use your head now …

Isaiah 5:20
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.


You've Got Another King Comin'
Parody of "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" performed by Judas Priest and written by Rob Halford, K.K. Downing & Glenn Tipton
(Revelation 17:14, 19:11-21; Romans 13:1-7; 1 Peter 2:13-17; 1 Timothy 2:1-2, Titus 3:1-2; Philippians 2:10-11; Acts 4:19, 5:29, 23:5; Matthew 22:21; John 16:33; Acts 17:6-7)

Won't lie – I'm not political
They're takin' bribes -- they get so hypocritical
Scandals – crimes done we're findin' out
It's non-stop and it's wrong – an abuse of power

Evil kings have been around since the world was five
You think you'd like a good one – He's still waiting to arrive
Although it's unfortunate, maybe you've been had
It stinks to Heaven – don't get mad
You've got another king comin'
You've got another king comin'

Left, right – each has their talkin' heads
And if they listen once, it'll be some accident
MSNBC and Fox -- could have a nice time if they all learned to box
If you're sick of sittin' 'round while they shift away the blame
If you're tired of votin' for the lesser-evil name
Out there is a horseman – faithful, true – we have
The King of Heaven's coming back
You've got another king comin'
You've got another king comin'

In this world of driven men, the man of prayer gets swallowed
Men with power who won't praise Him -- ain't for you to follow

Don't throw rocks – just try to make the best, yeah
Hang tough like Romans 13 says
Respect government's authority
'Cause God ordained that
Read 2:1,2 First Timothy, yeah

If you think I'm wimpin' out, that's no big surprise
I think First Peter 2 verse 17 it still applies
Power is apportioned – even to the bad
The King of Heaven knows all that
You've got another king comin'
You've got another king comin'
You've got another king comin'
You've got another king …
Comin' for you!
(Comin') You've got another king comin'
(Comin') It's in Titus 3:1
(Comin') He's a comin' y'all!
(Comin') That's what Revelation says
(Comin') Oh yeah, oh yeah
(Comin') He's a comin', He's a comin' king
(Comin') They can't defeat Him, They can't defeat Him
(Comin') He's comin' all at once, so hold strong, come and ride along
(Comin') Hey yeah, hey yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
(Comin') Babe-babe-babe-baby

Revelation 19:16
On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.


Gimme Pre-Trib
Parody of "Gimme Three Steps" performed by Lynyrd Skynyrd and written by Allen Collins & Ronnie Van Zant
(1 Corinthians 15:51- 52; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; Matthew 24:3-44; Luke 17:26-37; Revelation 3:8-10, 4:1-2, 11:12, 13:1-18, 14:4-16, 19:11-21)

Our Lord's comin' for us
And there's a day called the Judgment
But the world ain't in the mood
Then in walks a man with an un-Christian plan
And he's a-workin' for you-know-who
He's a hateful fellow if you dare to rebel though
'Cause you'll die if you do
So it's a time to prepare if you're a man who's scared
There just might be an out for you … to say excuse me!

Well, there's several theories for that time
Our Lord takes us like a thief on a spree
'Cause there's a pre- and mid- and post-trib Rapture
And folks who like none of these
Oh, take a minute, Christians, and look at First Corinthians
In verse 15:52
And then both Thessalonians and in Matthew twenty-
Four and Revelation for clues

But won't you gimme pre-trib, gimme pre-trib Rapture
Gimme pre-trib or before
Gimme pre-trib, gimme pre-trib Rapture
And they'll never see me no more
For sure
LEAD

Well, it's not clear today when those events take place
And we oughta dwell on the Lord
And I tell you: for some, to debate's more fun
Than to wait for the Lord's reward
He'll return for me and them and you
That's the day I'll be looking for
And you'll be hearin' me singin' the highest praise
As I'm heading up toward the Lord

But won't you gimme pre-trib, gimme pre-trib Rapture
Gimme pre-trib or before
Gimme pre-trib, gimme pre-trib Rapture
Don't know when we're gonna see the Lord
Don't even act sure

1 Thessalonians 4:17
After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.


Lock
Parody of "Walk" performed by The Foo Fighters and written by Dave Grohl
(Hebrews 7:24; Romans 8:29, 11:29)

I missed You while I was away
You sent so many Christians to woo me – they were spurned
They think I've lost my faith
'Cause they couldn't win me over at the time when I was burned

Turning the lock again
I believe I may just open up, let the light back in
Turning to God again
Can't you see I've wasted long enough in a life of sin

I do remember the days
I felt my faith move mountains then sadly watched it burst
I think I found Your grace
'Cause I feel I'm growing stronger with each Bible verse

Turning the lock again
I believe I may just open up, let the light back in
Turning to God again
I believe I've wasted long enough in a life of sin

Now
I was scared the first time
But You changed my mind
Set me free from sin
To Jesus Christ: I've failed so many times
You're still inside – I was wrong to deny it
The sacrifice that only You provide
I first declined but now I say You're right
I won't retreat, I'm stayin' by Your side
Together, forever – I've severed all my ties
I'm never gonna die, I'm never runnin' dry
Like Romans reads – 11:29
I'm standing on Your grace
I'm runnin' to Messiah
Together, forever in Heaven we'll reside
I never will believe another stinkin' lie
The devil is clever, but Heaven is better

Turning the lock again
I believe I may just open up to Your light within
Turning to God again
And I see I've wasted long enough in a life of sin

Turning the lock again
I believe I may just open up
Turning to God again
And I see I've wasted long enough

Romans 11:29
for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable.


Man on a Cross
Parody of "Man in a Box" performed by Alice in Chains and written by Jerry Cantrell, Sean Kinney, Layne Staley & Mike Starr
(Luke 23:39-43; Romans 6:6; Galatians 2:20)

I am a man on a cross – perishin' in my sin
Won't You kindly save me, please save me
Please, I cry -- can You show me love?
Jesus Christ -- can I be saved, sir?
He replies -- you'll be with Me
In Paradise -- now you're goin' up

High on a cross with this thief – struck for those in sin
Won't You kindly save me, please save me
See that sky -- Heaven's opened up
Jesus Christ -- Divine Redeemer
He who dies -- will be raised yet
We will rise -- now we're goin' up

See me I'm crucified – death for both of us
(With) Jesus Christ – we died together
Read between the lines – in Galatians
He redeemed my life -- now we're goin' up

Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.


Cemetery Came Alive
Parody of "Semi-Charmed Life" performed by Third Eye Blind and written by Stephan Jenkins
(Matthew 27:51-53)

He's back and I'm hopin' you'll find Him
He's livin', He's comin', He lives for me
Says that we should teach the nations about His salvation
Jesus died and He rose – I believe
And it makes me smile, hope it does for you
To 27 Matthew come and we'll review
Jesus died and then the earth moved
Temple curtain was ripped and then divided in two
When it seemed as though things were gonna get worse
Brothers came alive that belonged in a hearse
There's a lot of people in their graves
Who came out and they was raised, I said

That was something else
When every Jewish cemetery came alive, baby, baby
That was something else
And now Christians ain't afraid ... to die
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do

He died and rose -- listen folks
You should take a tip from a dude who knows
And I wish I could get back there someplace after
Violently the earth began to shake
Soon the curse of death was lifted off us in its wake
It broke rocks
The folks in town where in shock
When the stiffs that had risen went out for a walk
'Cause when they jumped up
They took a trip around the city
And went up to men and then went up to Heaven and
Now we'll all go back there too
The place with all those who sleep in Christ who
Followed our Savior up unto
The place where He went
CHORUS

I believe that the man named Jesus rose
I preach 'cause it's real and not just a feeling
I believe and my faith it grows
And before I close, you may be bright
But when it's the truth, it's real
And I could die and I would be all right, all right
And when complaints come in from anyone nasty
Who tell us that it's just an idiot myth
On the verge of being a lie
Now I shrug 'cause truth survives
Though they choose to carry out jealous threats
Scornin' Jesus and bustin' heads
That little-read passage in Matthew says
That up around the bend we'll break out of our caskets
Sprung -- not as zombies or as ghost men
But as something that's more than human forevermore
If I get buried underground
Not scared -- I'm not goin' down – oh, no
My Lord's runnin' my life
He's got my tombstone knocked down with a smile
And I will be all right, all right
That was something else
When He gave you His life, baby
That was something else
And now Christians ain't afraid ... to die
To die, to die, to die!

He died and rose -- listen folks
You should take a tip from a dude who knows
In the twenty-seventh chapter
The Gospel of Matthew
Is the place where you should start
That was something else

Matthew 27:51-53
At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
