  RAGE   KING STRANGE  
 


(Turner, Besa)

You feel like screaming
at the darkness
Feels like you're trapped
inside a cage
You've built a wall
that comes between us
Where once was love
now only rage

 


(Turner, Salva, Dy)

You saw him on the video
He took his clothes off
in the middle
of the show
Is he a woman or a man
Why people worship him
you'll never understand

CHORUS
King strange

Unearthly king
became a man
And as a servant
pointed to a promised land
His life
is marked in history
He never took a throne
but died upon a tree

CHORUS
King strange


 
  A LOT TO LEARN   IT'S A  
 


(Turner, Besa)

You can only give
what you receive
you can only live
what you believe

CHORUS
You've got a lot to learn

All the sons and daughters
look to you
Listening and watching
what you do
Every life contains
a destiny
Living for yourself
is misery

 


(Turner, Dy)

I'm feelin
so confused
By the thoughts
inside my head
Sometimes
it gets so dark
I think I'd be
better dead

CHORUS
It's a lie,
It's a lie

They say that
there's no God
I'm a fool
if I believe
No one to hear
my cry
When it's black
and I can't see

 

 
  TOXIC HATE   TOO LATE TO PRAY  
 


(Turner, Dy)

In a world
where all different
kinds of people
have to live
Life becomes
like a hell for
those who'd rather take
than give

CHORUS
People barely human
spreading toxic hate
Thinking they're superior
to everyone they meet
Walking in the darkness
spitting out their lies
Can you see the anger
in their eyes

We can't judge
other men
By the color
of their skin
If we can't see
the truth
We've been blinded
by our sin


 


(Turner)

Planning your forever
By how you live today
Many good intentions
But nothing ever changes
Life is racing quickly
Like clouds across the sky
Seems like only yesterday
You're young and then you die

CHORUS
The dawning of eternity
Is just a breath away
Your life on earth is over now
And it's too late to pray


Look to your horizon
The setting of the sun
Do you want a just reward
For all the things you've done
Don't wait until tomorrow
Until your final hour
Now's the time today's
The day to know his holy power

 
  PEACE AT LAST   COMIN' HOME  
 


(Turner)

I've lost my sight
Can you help me see
I've lost my mind
Can you help me
understand

I'm everybody
And you don't know my name

But look in the mirror
And we both look the same

I've lost direction
Can you help me
find my way?
I've lost my money
can you help me pay?
I can't hear you
Can you open up
my ears
I'm so scared now
Can you take away
my fear?

CHORUS
Come into my arms
I'll give you rest
Follow me you'll find
your peace at last


I'm so lonely
Won't you be my friend
I'm so hopeless
That I want my life
to end
I need forgiveness
Can you take away
my sin?
I need a new life
Can I begin again
?

 


(Turner)

I've crossed the ocean
I've flown the sky
I've said I couldn't see a thing
When it was right before my eyes
I've known some people
I've had some friends
I've gone away and said
that I would not be
comin' back again

CHORUS
After a long
Time away
I'm comin' home
I've heard the thunder
I've felt the rain
I've kept a smile upon my face
when my heart was full of pain
I've had opinions
I've counted costs
But it didn't seem to matter
after comin' to the cross

 
  COME TO ME   WORDS IN RED  
 


(Turner, Salva, Dy)

You come to me
when I can't see
You come to me
when I call
You come to me
when I can't see
You comfort me
when I fall

CHORUS
YAHWEH
Oh Ya
YAHWEH
Come to me

 


(Turner, Salva)

All the things I hate
Are the things I do
What I meant to say
Never quite
comes through

CHORUS
There's a war going on
Inside my head
The only peace I can find
Are the words in red

Burned my conscience down
Got it back again
Now that little voice
Is my dearest friend


 
  DON'T STOP THE MUSIC   PLASTIC JESUS  
 


(Turner, Salva)

I've got a fire
Burnin' inside my soul
You took the pieces of my life
And made me whole

CHORUS
Don't stop the music
Playin' inside my head
Don't stop the music
Or maybe I'm already dead

Just when I think
that I can't hear
You speak to me
You break the chains
around my heart
And set me free

 


(Turner, Salva, Dy)

I I I I I I

I ask the Lord to bless me
'Most each and every day
And then I live the way I want
So get out of my way
I never ask directions
I don't take good advice
I've got this world
All figured out
No need to tell me twice

CHORUS
Plastic glow-in-the-dark
Jesus on my wall
I'm so high

Mighty high
I that I'll never fall

I heard an old man sayin'
That none of us is good
We always choose the evil way
And don't live like we should
I heard the name of Jesus
So I know I'm OK
I closed my eyes
And laughed at him
And turned and walked away
