Well, ooh ooh, why me, thousands cried holy
Bound for some, Son of our God
Daughter of Zion, Judah the Lion
He redeemeth, and bought us with his blood
John the Revelator, great advocator
Gets ‘em on the battle of Zion
Lord, tellin’ the story,
risin’ in glory Cried, “Lord, don’t you love some I”

Well, Moses to Moses,
watchin’ the flock
Saw the bush where he had to stop
God told Moses, “Pull off your shoes
Out of the flock, baby, it’s you I choose”
Tears of the angels,
burnin’ down the heavens
Rainin’ for the love of Christ
Bound for glory,
I’m telling the story
This here’s The Story of Light

When John looked over Calvary’s hill
Heard a rumblin’ like a chariot wheel
Well, tell us, John, what did you see?
I saw a beast rising from the sea!

Talk to us, John!
What’s the good news?
The crippled can walk
The dumb are singin’ the blues (oh)
John, in the graveyard, whad’ya see?
The dead are dancin’ all around me
O tell us, who is writin’?
Tell us, who is writin’? (etc.)

Time for revelation and for jubilation
Tell us what you’re writin’

The Moon and I

There is a love affair between The Moon and I
We skate the Milky Way in a forever sky
And all the stars crash like waves beneath our feet
And time could never find us
As we slip beneath nova sheets

And down below, you command the ocean’s tides
But you spin alone in a prison of gravity
Magnetic soul casts a spell so enchanting
Behind my eyes, I search in my galaxy

Come to me
Show me how you glow
We’ll escape to the other side of space
Where forever and never and all that’s unknown is known

Coming Soon!
