The Killing Tree

Dear God

Welcome To The Human Race

If I was Jesus

Are You Looking for Jesus

No Problem

Mr. Religion

I Owe It All

Jesus in Show Business

I Was Raised To Believe

He Is Alive

When?

 

 

The Killing Tree

 

All alone in an evil dream I see myself up high

And it's me over you with my arms spread open wide

I try to run from the place I know that I can be set free

Come away come away there's a sweet voice calling me, to the killing tree

 

I look around at all the faces who are passing me

And I run try to run with nails in my feet

All the time I was building castles on a sandy beach

Leading you leading you to a place I'd never been

To the killing tree, come on

 

I know what you're asking me and I don't wanna give

'cause it's safe and I know 'cause I've been here all these years

All the precious pain I hold without it there is fear

And I'm afraid when you say that you'll get me outta here to the killing tree come on

 

Come away to a place of healing

 

So now I run to you and I move from night to day

For to live I must die and there's still no other way

I was alone in an evil dream 

but you took my place up high

Now it's you over me 

with your arms spread open wide

On the killing tree, Come on

 

Dear God
 

Dear God, I don't understand
What you're doing
If you're real and you're in control
You must see the path we're choosing

And I don't understand but somehow I believe
It's all in your hands

Yeah but I don't believe in a God who gives
More of his love to those who say they believe
And I've read your book and I think it says
It's not what you say but it's how you live

Dear God
How your name's been used to justify treason
And although it hurts me to say
Sometimes the enemy's religion

 

And I don't understand but somehow I believe
It's all in your hands


 

If I Was Jesus

 

If I Was Jesus, I'd have some real long hair

A robe and some sandals, is what I'd wear

I'd be the guy at the party turning water to wine

Yeah me and my disciples, we'd have a real good time.

 

And I'd lay my life down for you 

And I show you who's the boss 

I'd forgive you and adore you

While I was hangin' on your cross

If I Was Jesus.

 

I'd have some friends that were poor

I'd run around with the wrong crowd, 

Man I'd never be bored

Then I'd heal me a blind man, get myself crucified

By politicians and preachers, who got somethin' to hide.

 

If I was Jesus, I'd come back from the dead

And I'd walk on some water,

just to mess with your head

I know your dark little secrets, 

I'd look you right in the face

And I'd tell you I love you, with amazing Grace.

 

Welcome To The Human Race

 

Jesus was a homeless man

We got mansions on the hill

Jesus said not to judge

We say sinners burn in hell

Jesus made perfect wine

We call it the devil's cup

If he was preaching today in our church

We’d probably try to string him up

 

The government hated Jesus

We want our picture with the president

Jesus cleared the temple

We just fill it up again

Jesus was a poor man

We're as rich as they come

If he was walking through our neighborhood

We’d probably dial 911

 

Jesus was the prince of peace

We're marching off to war

Jesus turned the other cheek

We're always keeping score

Jesus was the king of love

We think we need more guns

If he was he was walking across our borderline

We’d probably lock him up

 

I’ll meet you brother at the dying place

Wash ourselves in the river of grace

I’ll search your eyes for Jesus’ face

I’ll meet you brother at the dying place

And welcome each other to the human race

 

Jesus never owned anything

We wish we had more

He was friends with prostitutes

We download our porn

Jesus kept no secrets

We're all about the bluff

And if he busted up our house of cards

We’d probably try to beat him up

 

I’ll meet you brother at the dying place

Wash ourselves in the river of grace

I’ll search your eyes for Jesus’ face

I’ll meet you brother at the dying place

And welcome each other to the human race

 

 

 

Are You Looking for Jesus?

 

Are you looking for Jesus?

You wanna find him yeah?

You could start in the churches

But he isn't always there

 

You may find him with the broken-hearted

Or find him with the poor and lame

You won't find him with everybody

That calls upon his name

 

You may find him at the hookers' party

Or dancing at the Mardi Gras

He might be drinking the high and mighty 

and telling jokes at the bar

 

You may find him in the Oval Office

Serving coffee to the VIP's

Or see him down at the border

Hanging with his fellow refugees

 

You may find him old cathedral

or with believers that are underground

Washing feet at the mosque on Friday

Or with the synagogue sabbath crowd

You tell me that you follow who I’m singing about

You tell me that your faith is real and devout

You tell me what the Bible teaches

You tell method you’re looking for Jesus 

 

He can see what’s hiding underneath the skin

He knows how to speak every language that’s been

So tell me as you cut them to pieces

Are you really looking for Jesus?

 

You tell me that you follow who I’m singing about

You tell me that your faith, is real and devout

You tell me what the Bible teaches

You tell me that you’re looking for Jesus 

 

You’re sitting in your castle judging us all

Pointing your finger, to the rules on the wall

So proud of your pious speeches

Blind to your toxic diseases

 

You say to the sinner come to Jesus today

But then you put mine field right in their way

So tell me as you blow them to pieces

Are you really looking for Jesus?

 

No Problem

 

Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo

 

I've no problem receiving from a God who could set me free
I've no problem believing that He came and He died for me


But condemnation and judgement I hate
And conversations and endless debate
Show me something real live it in your life
Maybe I'm the fruit hanging off the vine

I've no problem with compassion or a little bit of dignity
But you haven't asked me a question all you do is you patronize me


Condemnation and judgement I hate
And conversations and endless debate
Show me something real live it in your life
Maybe I'm the fruit hanging off the vine

We're all God's creation not just those who agree
If we don't love every heart then we make God a lie
And simply justify all the reasons why people don't believe

Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo

 

 

Mr. Religion

 

Dear Mr. Religion seems times are not so good

You say people ain't doing the things they know they should

Well Mr. Religion people say that you had your go

And they're not believing not in the God you show

 

Dear Mr. Religion you sing amazing grace

So please will you tell me what's that disapproving look upon your face

Do you love the sinner though you may not love the sin?

Are you part of the problem and the mess we're in

 

And don't you know 

people are the same wherever you go

And can't you see 

they're a lot like you and a lot like me

And it's only love only love

That changes hearts and changes minds

So please Mr. Religion don't let them leave you behind

 

Dear Mr. Religion can you rise the limbo bar?

'Cos I can't get under not the way things are

Well Mr. Religion are you too quick to judge my sin

'cause you still haven't asked me how I made the mess I'm in

I Owe It All

 

No matter how far I run
Run away from you
You've always been there
And you welcome me home
Like I never was gone
Friend of all friends
I've forsaken, I've mistreated you
Lover divine
No matter how hard I tried
To stray from your side
You've always been true

 

And I owe it all to you Jesus
I owe it all to you
All my life I lay before you
I owe it all to you

 

It seems too good to be true
That all that I've got to do
Is learn to let go
I lay this burden down
And I let your love surround
All of my soul
When I'm broken, you mend me
Healer divine
And all that I've got to do
Is learn to follow you
Let your grace break through

You always lift me when I fall
You always hear me when I call
And you forgive me Lord
And in your grace I am found

 

Jesus In Show Business

 

They put Jesus in show business

They made him a white guy with baby blue eyes

Perfect nose and a lamb on his shoulder

Chiseled cheek bones and the safest replies

 

They put Jesus in show business

He got his own station on cable TV

“The lack of money is the root of all evil”

Said a man with a jet plane and pearly white teeth

 

They took him down off the cross

And put him up on the stage

And they made people pay

To hear them sing his name

And they took all the cash

And built mansions on the hill

Now there’s a code at the gate

Cos they put Jesus in show business

 

We put Jesus in show business

took words from the bible, and put chords to them

(we) called them our own and filled up the arena

And called it a blessing when the money rolled in

 

We took him down off the cross

And put him up on the stage

And we made people pay

To hear us sing his name

And we took all the cash

And gave it to the man

Who could keep us in power

And keep Jesus in show business

 

I put Jesus in show business

I said it was Him but it was me on my mind

I used his name to further my kingdom

I said I could see, but I was totally blind

 

So I knelt at the cross

And burnt down the stage

Face to the ground

And wept as I prayed

Forgive me and teach me how to be less

and to never ever put

Jesus in show business

 

I Was Raised To Believe

 

I was raised to believe

That if you didn’t say a certain prayer

That God wouldn’t let you go

In through his pearly gates

 

I was raised to believe

That if you didn’t say a certain phrase 

You were going straight to hell

Forever burning in the flames

 

And I was too young to question

But somewhere in my heart I knew

That something just didn’t feel right to me

There had to be another view

 

I was taught to believe

That everybody else was wrong

And I was told to let them know

In a sermon or a pretty song

 

But I wondered what God was thinking

If most of the people he made

Would spend all eternity burning up

And punished cos of how they were raised

 

I’m shouting out a prayer tonight

Show me how to see it right

My heart  tells me that you’re there

I just wanna know the truth

You know that I believe in you

And if you made us all you care

About people everywhere

And your love is everywhere

 

I don’t pretend to understand

I don’t pretend to know it all

but my religion isn’t Disneyland

Or my prayers like a booty call

 

And I believe that God’s a Father 

and a Mother to us all

And knows just how to talk to us

No matter how we call

 

He Is Alive

 

One Friday morning evil came
And tried to steal my hope away
They crucified my precious Lord
Left Him to die alone in scorn
And though they tried to keep him in the ground
No power could keep my Savior down

 

He's alive hallelujah and
The stone is rolled away
He's alive, He's alive hallelujah
He's alive hallelujah and the stone is rolled away
He's alive, He's alive hallelujah

 

And as He staggered up that hill
He carried my own cross as well
And on that cross He took my shame
He bore my sin and freed my name
And though they tried to keep him in the ground
No power could keep my Savior down

So Jesus take my life, a living sacrifice
I'll always live my live with You
And I surrender now, before your name I bow
I'll always live my live with You

So Jesus take my life, a living sacrifice
I'll always live my live for You
And I surrender now, before your name I bow
I'll always live my live for You

We know they tried to keep Him in the ground
No power could keep my Savior down, yeah

 

 

When?

 

When are you gonna let me love you?

When are you gonna let me in? 

When are you gonna let me love you?

cos I tried all day today

and tomorrow I’ll be here to do it all over again!

 

You’re a genius in deflection

trying to fight off my affection

You’re a master of rejection, yes you are

 

But I’m a wave of adoration

That’s gonna break in your direction

I’m the voice of resurrection, yes I am

 

You’re a ball of condemnation

In constant need of affirmation

Who runs to isolation, yes you are

 

But I’m a river of salvation

And a bridge of restoration 

I’m the wind of liberation, yes I am

 

Take your broken story line

You can leave it all behind

Perfect love can redefine

So open up your heart and mind
