Host of Days

My kingdom is here
come, make yourselves at home






















1














The Master

Angels fly
devils prod
and they are both
trying to make their home in you





















2














Booked

Everyone's got a story
will yours be in the book of life
maybe I should start a new chapter
think I'll start tonight





















3











Kite

I walk among the dead
and I am
still, sometimes I feel the wind blow upon my face
and sometimes she blows inside
then for a little while
I am alive






















4












He Whispers

Then the words grow bigger than the whole world
until men throw them into the fire
so they can bend and twist them
for they do not love him
as much as they love to sin






















5
Proverbs

____The Answer___

Oh, man, why should I bend reality to favor life
when you constantly bend it toward death?


____Dark Ages___

Those who wonder,
'How will he deceive the whole world? '
do not realize that he already has


____Holy Grail___

His words the wine


____The Bible___

It's not algebra or biology
it's history and poems for Christ's sake!


____Word___
Is it a book or just the image of one


____Ishtar___
Those who teach us to worship God in strange ways
teach us to worship strange Gods








6


____The Attorney___

So, ya’ gonna’ defend God's truth
or your sins?


____Ragged Edges___

I am a religion of one
just like everybody else


____Practice Practice___

Those who practice evil
are destined to become the masters thereof


____Peace___

Those who find some kind of peace with God
will surely find themselves at war with the world


____Marvelous___

Some look around and marvel at creation
while others just take it for granted


____Confusion___

Those who teach without fear






7


The Seedlings

My God,
I wish it were possible to heal the world
without destroying it


Truth
Does the word truth come without instruction?


The Universe
Because a picture is worth a thousand words


Axis
Well, Hitler and Rome


Ephesus
Mary said what


Israel and Judah
We curse our blessings and the world spins in dismay


Oh Roman,
Jerusalem is the eternal city


Spring Bride
And Baal Proposed to Easter







8
Vain Nations
Because their leaders refuse to tell them who and what they are in prophecy


Holy Bible
Sweet child, can you bring me that dusty old book on the shelf
I think I’d like to read it before I die
I want to see how I should have run my life


Israel
Word shadows
Prophetic profile
Denial
Joseph and Judah are not the same
perhaps the confusion, a misplaced name


Death
Attaching spirits to things which do not speak
or to days unsanctified by the host
or unto deeds altogether unclean


Expert
Worldly master at best


Biblical Scholar
Sounds more like the devils lawyer










9











Rayz

The light chases the gravity
of some tiny thing
returning into that from whence it came
nothing
nothing but a shimmering trail
echoing in the shadows of time






















10












Light

Universe: a clock
Mass: energy balled up
Life: embodiment of release
Mankind: conciseness at liberty























11










Wasted

Did ever change your mind in the middle of a dream
change course so to speak
surely miracles are possible
for what are we if not something dreamed up
and put together by someone above
as mankind, we repair the things we create
constant trouble and we get rid of it
unsalvageable waste





















12





Magic

I think scientists have recently discovered
the wavelength surface tension
of a very small and fast dimension
it's almost beyond imagination
how fast these teeny tiny things go
seem to be in several places at once
I don't know how they know
but I'd say that down there instant to instant
is very large and slow
like two atoms bumping together
touching electron flows
time is digital and mass electronic
everybody knows
we search out and ever deeper
who knows how far we will go
at what point will we be magic
some think creation was an accident
no effort it just happened
but this is what I know
we should all thank the host
and try to live in peace
with his Holy Ghost













13




Reason

Does life exist beyond our earth
somewhere out there in the universe
why not life without flesh to hurt
is the inside of your mind a home
where you dwell all alone
no voices but your own
no echoes from the seeds you've sown
do not worry
in time you will lay down in the ground
a fitting death will be found
silence the only sound
as we sleep the sleep
of those who rest in peace
we are all getting there no matter what you believe
think none can resurrect the dead
I guess we'll have to wait and see
according to your own faith
you shall surely receive
we are all so very small
and there are things beyond the stars
does the technology exist to create a universe
my love, here we are













14






Echoes

Flesh, the surface tension between heaven and the world outside
Oh my,
Lord what kind of devil am I
surely my flesh will die
and all the spirits that I let fly
will echo upon this earth
Pain the labor of birth
must learn to throw thoughts of sin to the fire
become an angel of God for hire
for one has bought my soul
died on the cross in the days of old
murdered for being hot
in this world so cold
ice ice the Echoes



















15






Train

I pulled my bike up close to the tracks
bells started clanging
fiery red eyes started blaring and flashing
as an arm came slowly down
the sound
the sound came alive and thundered all around
until the engine’s momentums pierced my soul

solid steel wheels whirled by and by and by
hair waving in the breeze
I wondered if the angels and devils inside
caught a glimpse of what it feels like
to be breathing, heart beating and enfleshed
with eyes open wide
my God how good it feels
to be alive

















16








Three Crosses

The faults in me
cannot justify the faults in you
and those who look to blame
would do better praying for mercy
for the Lord hangs on the cross between us
bleeding that we might look to ourselves
and learn to love each other
























17





Glorious Escape

Look at Abel,
sitting there in the velvety cavern
filing suit against his brother Cain
full of hate and disdain
his throat all thirsty and dry
there is no drink wherein he dwells
no
no fountain of life

seeking judgment where judgment awaits
waste on waste
yet I know that there is a place
where people have learned to live
those who dwell with the presence of glory
fear God and know well
how to forgive



















18


Thirty Pieces

Thirty pieces of silver
thirty pieces in the sack
on a journey to see the master
with some guys trained to attack
the kiss
slight struggle then one lost an ear
in the attempt to attack back

Jesus cupped head and ear in hand
and healed like so many times before
said to his disciples
put away your swords
for this is my fathers will
I am the one prophesied in the scriptures
and their words are with us still
my fate must be fulfilled
prophecy cannot be broken
the ones I spoke nor the ones that were spoken
thirty pieces of silver
look at what they bought
the poor man’s champion
the king of heaven
in pain and nailed to a cross
those sitting in high places were laughing
because they could not perceive the loss
repent and give or be forsaken
and who can count the cost









19



Saving Paradise

Gazing out at the stars
nowadays we can see
so very very far
all things go round and round
I wonder what we will find
I can tell you what I have found
consider these words and you will see
the kingdom of heaven is all around
we are here on earth
standing on God-given ground
and where would you rather be
where would you rather go
we have all that we need
and no matter where we roam
we will always refer to this earth
as home

with my Lord I cry
while religious philosophers lie
they say that those who believe
are going to heaven when they die
instead of encouraging us to build it
right here while we're still alive
I scream
we were brought up out of this dirt
and what is the difference between heaven and earth

if not obedience and the lack thereof

we destroy paradise with every sin we take
we destroy paradise with every commandment we break
and where do you want to go
we destroy heaven on earth
and why should Jesus Christ
have to save it all alone
we should all be getting ready
for the Lord God almighty to come home you want to go to heaven
it might get very hard to breathe
God's word says we'll be resurrected
why don't you believe what you read
is it because of the devil
and all of those wonderful lies that he speaks
open your eyes and you will see
that David has not ascended to heaven
and who do you believe
Jesus Christ who died on a tree
or the wolf behind the altar
all dressed up like a sheep
saying all you have to do
is say that you believe
and don't you know
he is up there deceiving
stop and think about it
what worthwhile thing comes easy
bring forth fruits worthy of your repentance
and did you ever hear of words like these
we should all start saving paradise
the first step to get down on our knees
repent then get up and try
remove the beam in our eye
and if nobody else will help
we should patiently wait for the messiah
while building heaven inside of us
right now while we're still alive
it will most certainly be too late
if you decide to wait until you die
for come judgment day

we'll all have to give account
for the things we did while we were alive
and I know this world swiftly runs to hell
as Christians we should be getting ready to rebuild
and save this paradise
we should all be searching for the holy spirit
and praying for the wisdom to decide
the difference between wrong and right
to be faithful to the word of God
(continued)
21




with every thought we think
every day and every night
to thank him for all we are given
and repent of every sin
that we might some day live again
in his paradise
right here on this earth
and don't you think it's worth
saving in God's eyes
if we could only learn to be obedient
we would never have to die
my God I cannot even save myself
and yet I try
I sit down and write
what strange effort is this
to try and save paradise





















22







The Gold

I need to move where the days are longer, the bills are shorter
and psychos run for cover
where the days are brighter, the lakes are deeper
and filled with fish that jump
where the skies are bluer and the women more beautiful
because they don't just give it up
their search for a God fearing man
instead of ones with lots of stuff
somewhere that the rivers flow easy, the oceans are breezy
and the rainbows never end
because we don't need a pot of gold
currency other than morals
tempts us all to sell our souls



















23



Blind Spot

Blind spot in the rear view
haunting to some
does it haunt you too
Ten foot neck
wrapped around his body in slumber
his parents are out foraging in the forest
keep an eye out for hungry predators
like kangarexroo and saber-toothed tigers
shall we give them words?
or shall we give them to another
give them words and they'll subdue this earth
and become your fleshy headed brothers
Oh my, will they die
we'll have to wait and see
I'm going to leave it up to them
come, let's go plant this tree
if they eat it's fruit against my will
they'll have to learn for themselves
what is good and what is evil
let's plant it here next to the tree of life
and if they eat of the fruit of this tree
they will live forever and never die
and I know what they will do
because I know you too my child












24






The Wealth

We are all incredibly rich
few truly realize just how rich we are
we have inherited another day
a day full of life and opportunity
on God Almighty’s favorite planet
a day such as this
is such a wonderful gift
that surely those who curse their neighbor
will be cursed
and those who bless their neighbor
will be blessed
so let us all raise thoughts and children
unto the glory of the living God




















25




The Blessed

Blessed are those who woke up this morning
with no stones to throw
at God sitting upon his throne
let us live in peace today with his word
and give him authority over the earth
let us not bring matters before him to judge
but rather look for his wisdom in us
even if this means
turning the other cheek

time is ticking away and I know
that the Lord will have his day
and I am afraid that when it comes
most of us will be turned away
who do you think
will receive permission to stay
if not those who admire his wisdom
these practice and study his ways
blessed are those who lift no stones
to throw at God or his family today















26







my love I hope you will forgive me
I throw stones that others might see
it is an attempt to open their eyes
many worship false Christs
Jesus honored the father
and I know this we should do
my love,
if I throw stony words at them
it's because they throw stones at you
my love,
if we all opened our eyes
would we be able to see
we live in the darkest of times
yet I know just a glimpse of your light
will bring hope in the darkest of nights
I know your words are true
and if you came down to this earth
I know what they would do
the same thing they did before
and yet they say that they love you
woe unto those
who pick up stones to throw
at God upon his throne












27








The Grateful

He said,
if God came and granted you just one wish
what would it be? What would you say
so I told him the wish that I would make
I said, I would wish for another day
and he said, you are in pretty good health
a wish like that would be such a waste
I guess that he did not realize
that the wish was not just for me
but for the entire human race






















28












The Saint

If only the Lord could walk around in my flesh without shame
insomuch that I could wear his name
we could heal the sick and raise the dead
feed five thousand with a loaf of bread
if only the Lord could walk around in my flesh
without shame





















29



Thoughts Of The Day

Why sure,
he's gonna resurrect the little ones
he'll raise them up and raise them as his own
just like he does now
he'll even bring back those
that lived in the days of old
the first will be last
and if the truth be told
the last shall be first
and everybody knows
that the meek shall inherit the earth
so gather up all of your pride
and sell it for what it's worth
food for worms that work
to turn the flesh to dirt

our children will soon inherit the world
let us be thankful for all that we lose is not lost
want to give them the kingdom of heaven
we sin without measuring the cost
we could be healing the sick
and curing the blind
the chosen will be given great power
and they will not ask for one thin dime












30







Today

Bible in his hand
blood in his mouth
not his
but one that he chewed up and spit out
and many trust him
to teach them what the word of God has to say
so he tells them what they want to hear
then they give him a little pay
he says believe and you'll go to heaven
instead of instructing them on how to build it
right now, right here, today





















31










Walker

Some say that they are Christian
and that they don't have to follow God's laws
the very framework of heaven
who and what did Jesus exalt
what does their preacher teach
and who should get up and walk























32





Worth Avenue

Some of us die while we're still alive
we sit down to listen and then to write
unto the glory of the living God

I'd like to fly but deep down inside
my sins keep me anchored to earth
there is nowhere to hide we must all lay down and die
when it comes time to pay the price
and what was all of your life worth
still I hope and pray that come judgment day
that I wont find myself even worse
I guess dying is not so bad after all
I was never much more than a fantasy made of dirt
still I hope to find in good time some grace in the master’s eyes
so that some day I might arise to once again be alive
to live again in some future time somewhere in some pleasant little place
alongside all of the faithful and those who survive
the end of this present age
















33

One Minute Till Midnight

One minute till midnight
and the whole world is asleep
I wonder if any will wake up
to open their eyes and take a peek
will they see the honed edge of a mighty sword
pulled out and against the whole damn world
I see it and tremble with fear
for my brothers enfleshed I shed tears
for they do not believe

Oh my God have mercy
they run to darkness so they cannot see
the light before their eyes
the kingdom of heaven is at hand
but her laws we despise
and all the world will soon go up in flames
think anyone will hear our cries
one minute till midnight
and we’re all gonna’ die
can you hear me
can you see

you know Jonah was inspired to write
'Those who listen to lying vanities
forsake their own mercy'
now it's one minute till midnight
the end of the world in sight
Mr. Armstrong was also inspired
he brought many prophesies to light

this poem you cannot receive
just go on back to sleep
while I dress up in sack cloth
and practice being meek




34

The Chase

Our sins chase us with knives
our sins chase us with knives
when we were young we did not realize
but when we get older we start to recognize
that our sins chase us with knives
our sins chase us with knives
Oh how I wish that I
was a young man sure and wise
I'd cut my sins to size
instead of giving them a place to hide
now our sins chase us with knives
our sins chase us with knives
little children be aware
there are evil spirits out there
consider your thoughts and deeds with care
the things we say and do
will someday come alive
and our sins chase us with knives
our sins chase us with knives
the older we get the slower we run
when we were young they were so much fun
if I slow down much more I'll be done
before I go I'll let these words fly
our sins chase us with knives
our sins chase us with knives
Yeaaaaaaah!
the older we get the slower we run
if I slow down much more I'll be done
before I go I'll let these words fly
our sins chase us with knives
our sins chase us with knives







35

Door To Door

The salesman needs to make a sale
his wife is in the county jail
needs some money to pay her bail

all the cocaine they did last night
caught her in the bathroom with some other guy
man you know there was a hell of a fight
I wonder if anybody died

can you believe the world we live in
low morals and full of sin
as far as my eyes can see
I don't know maybe it's just me
my god I’d love to be free
I'd fly
Oh so high
to the edge of the given sky
and don't even know why
I guess I need a place to hide
from a world that's about to fry
seems nobody cares or even asks why
all wrapped up in ourselves and we're blind

The truth goes unknown
when you die where ya’ gonna’ go
The resurrection is coming soon
and I tell you all that we are home











36

The Mayors Burden

Here I sit a king
and I really don't want to be
but what will happen if you love the word of God
then pray for the people in your city
every good mayor loves and protects his citizens
now consider what you have done to me
my friend, what demon possessed you to take what you took
think you are the only one sitting in the hot seat
I wish I'd never met you
oh how I long to be free
from the burden you've placed in my lap
how I wish you'd just get up and leave
go build yourself a new life
and didn't I warn you to get up and flee
the lord would hang us all on crosses
in the hope that some would see
there was a reason that there were three
soon everybody in town
will know what you did to me
I ask peers what to do
none of them think that you should be free
yet I wonder what you think
what would be the best thing to happen to you
I know that I am a sinful man too
and I am no better you see
what should a mayor do
one who loves his people and his king
have you any idea the height of the mountain whereupon I sit
if you love me like I love you
you'd go turn yourself in
go before the courts and ask for mercy and repent
relieve me of this burden
even though I probably asked for it





37












The Good Life

Perhaps we should all write God a poem
maybe it should be a love poem
I'm going to tell him how much I love being alive
and prove it
by showing him so






















38












The Big Show

They were looking to escape Rome
when he showed them how, they laughed
as if he couldn't possibly know
but the wisdom of his words
is, quite literally, the big show






















39






The King's Kings

Sixty million dollar yachts
the things we build that they've got
wondrous marvelous things
that some rule over us to achieve
yet many cannot believe
that God’s word walked around as a king
his wealth
words and deeds
to this day he waters these seeds
they are growing inside of those who believe
true wealth is life itself
a truth that only a few can see
God's will we seek
those who find it cannot be deceived
for they are and will be

the king's kings!
















40






Hundred Dollars

You don't know what a hundred dollars is
until you’re a waitress in a donut shop
you don't know what a hundred dollars is
until you steal it then run into a cop
you don't know what a hundred dollars is
until you go to Rodeo Drive to shop
you don't know what a hundred dollars is
until you spend it on your yacht
you don't know what a hundred dollars is
until it's more than all you’ve got
I tell you what a hundred dollars is
either a little or a lot
you don't know what a hundred dollars is
till you give 'em a fair price and they ask it off
or until you need it and ask your brother
and he says, I think not

















41








The Shameful War

When we all begin to war
against the evil inside
and none desire Mammon’s throne
sitting upon the world so high
the wealthy shall find their shame
and darkness shall swallow them,
their ways, and their names
so that charity and good will
can stand tall at every man’s door
righteousness will rule the earth
forever more
forever more




















42
Greed

Look around
the world is crude
working mothers have no food
so many people
with no home to go home to
those willing to help
are far too few
then there are those
who need medical attention
the price of which
is too high to mention
this is real life
it is not fiction
and our leaders look down from towers so great
they see death and disease then contemplate
what to do, what is our fate?
you who lust for money with greed
it is your fault why can't you see?
you take advantage of the poor with children to feed
you skim bucks off the top, here and there
don't you realize the cupboards are bare
the interest rates the fees you charge
so you can stack it up and drive fancy cars
you are good with money but do you give thanks?
or do you believe you are of higher rank
so what is the price? what is the fee?
and does the end justify the means
you think you'd be happy if you had more stuff
but I know you, it's never enough
money is your god if in it you place faith
you'll soon grow old and your bones will ache
and the money will save you time after time
at least till you leave it and life behind
soon after this I think you'll find
it would have been better to give it all away
but your heart has stopped beating and I'm afraid it's too late




43 Checkered Smiles
for the Worthy Selves

I get up and brush my rotting teeth
the dentist he don't want to see me
'cause I ain’t got no insurance
and my bank account is near empty

I go to work to earn my pay
boss looks at his watch to see if I'm late
acts like I'm not worth my wage
that's worth less every single day

I say boss can I have a raise
looks at me and says, 'There ain’t no way
sales are down today
we'll be out of business if things don't change

now I don't know what we’re gonna do
but I feel like we're being used
don't you think that denomination
is just another false religion
developed by the head of some ancient nation
another device to control the population

and what do you think is gonna happen
when things get out of control
will there be a revolution
when the poor find the words to speak bold

yeah, I'd take care if I were you
before they start looking at you like food
yeah, things are starting to get out of control
because the worthy selves have grown stone cold
so proud to have all that money can buy
we're gonna eat you in the middle of the night
would you like to see my checkered smile
before we carve you up to take a bite
do you think that's wrong
better wake up and do what's right

The Fisherman’s Gold


The dentist stole the gold from the poor ole fisherman’s teeth
and said, 'Oh, Mammon, hell is waiting for you and me
for surely we are now cursed by the god that created all things
and we have no way to give it back
for the fisherman has gone out to sea”
























45

Financial Reward

Mammon has his priests
and we all have our needs
clothes and something to eat
a home and some shoes
for our little one’s feet
but the priests they don't care
they just want their share
they say you better pay
come on, it's only fair

visa and master charge
and all those who give out cards
that financially rape and extort
late payments and interest from the poor
let me give you a clue
because I'm a little worried about you
and I have some very bad news
I'm afraid that
there will be no heaven for you
because of those things that you do
so go out there and enjoy
all those things that your money can afford
might as well have some fun with your reward
I know that I have fun with mine
even though it's little more
than words fashioned into a sword
and if I cut off your ear
it’s in an attempt that you might hear
the words of the lord
think there will be no judgment
who and what did Jesus die for







46



I never saw a camel
fit through the eye of a needle
still, this world props up idols
do you want to be a star
like those who live in lavish mansions
and drive fancy schmancy cars
or perhaps you'd rather be a lawyer or a politician
write and rewrite the laws, loopholes, and conditions
slant everything toward Mammon’s traditions
far from my lord and his position
let the unjust be unjust still
live according to your own will
but that is not to say
there will be no judgment day
and into what will you be reborn
a man that is low and humble
hardworking, loving, and simple
caring not for the things of this world
but to try and bring the kingdom of heaven
to every boy and every girl
that we might all eat and live in peace
to teach
that we should all give and live in charity
and build ourselves to be
free from the agents of greed













47

In God We Trust

In God we trust
but I think he's mad at us
with what nation are we at war?
all eyes on the sandman
lack of work and blame the Mexicans
and illegal immigrants
Mammon’s sickness rooted deep within
our citizens and their government
to be a nation without morals is to take a stand
against God's own
mighty kingdom at hand
we all must die and what will you say
that you died because you grew old and grey
or will you say child, because I broke heaven’s laws
I must lay down in the grave
who will you exalt
only the king of one nation can save
does the technology exist to create a universe?
here we are
does the technology exist to raise a man from the dead
for what will this effort be put forth
men die for their own nations
heaven has her laws
laid down long before creation
in what god do you trust
the ones that you prop up
in the name of Jesus?
morals the price of liberty
in this we are in debt
can you see the reflection
we call the national deficit







48








Rich And Tall

Walking tall in the world of high finance
he is after all nothing less
than Mammon’s prince
the money swells up with every risk he takes
you wouldn't believe the money he makes
in time it will buy him a few more days
before we put him in the ground to rot away
so treat him well and earn your pay
for he is temporary and cannot stay
his reward is with him and with him
all the worldly possessions will decay




















49







Lonely Heart

I need to look into your eyes
I want to see your face
I need to feel the warmth of your smile
Oh say you'll go out with me
even if it's only for a little while
come and take a look
my heart is an open book
in this chapter I am lonely
and I know that I am not much
I'll be okay
something just died inside
nothing I can't hide
don't worry I'll be alright
you know I never cry
come, let me hold you tight
your glowing presence
is all that I need tonight
so come my love
come and see me













50






The Loser

What are you looking at
I don't want you
you’re just another working man
what do you think you can do
for me for me for me
look at all this
I'm a beauty queen
You’re just another loser
do ya’ think it's free
I deserve a guy with lots of green
you know what I mean
I'm talking about money
money money
every weekend I want to go to the mall
I want to travel the world
I wanna’ see it all
I want an engagement ring
with a five carrot rock
I wanna’ boss the maid
and do the pool guy too
I want to boss around losers like you
you’re just another working man
what do you think you can do
for me for me for me









51








Angel 756

Well, I’m no great prize but I'd love to come hang out and be your best friend.
we could fool around and pretend
I'll keep all your secrets inside
and when Mr. Right comes along I'll just kiss you goodnight
then say goodbye
I wish you all the best already
call me if you ever need a full grown teddy
do not worry
you could never break this heart
I have become so comfortably numb
I wouldn't care if you ripped it apart




















52

Heaven

I thank God for my heaven every day
while others wait
as if death were a key
come and love in heaven
like me
or die and fade away
thinking the grave will set you free
the illusion that the living breath
and that dead souls get up and leave
heaven is for the living that believe
and the longer they live
the more they see
truly, there will be a resurrection
until then we must prepare ourselves to be
a child of love, mercy, and charity
well practiced in the ways of the Lord
full of humility, grace, and peace
for the king is coming to earth
to reclaim the land for his meek
the proud will be cast out into utter darkness
along with their spirits of coveting and greed
yes, the end of their world is coming
and who is going to be saved
if not those who worship the words
accepted and spoken in his glorious name
the son of man is coming to prepare this earth
for the presence of the head of days
the Lord of spirits, his Majesty,
the Creator of all things,
the fiery and all powerful
God almighty







53






Naked Soldier

Some days I'm surprised that I am not famous
some days I'm surprised that I am not dead
all these angels and devils
singing and fighting within my head
worlds are all around
some are alive and some of them dead
but I am not here to judge
still I know that an imperfect soul
should not hold a grudge
some think they're going to go to heaven
so they can continue to whine and complain
think wisdom is a mansion
built on a rock within their brain?
some think they are going to rule others
for God's and their own personal gain
but God has purchased a nation
shall he purchase yours the same
his child’s blood and pain
or will you build yourself up
to possess much in vain
some are grateful
they sing songs, whistle, and hum
most days, most of us just strive to survive
some days I march with my drum









54










and I wonder
if I will live again in the end
if for nothing else but to say words of grace
and give thanks for another day to dwell in
I drum to try and put away the sin
I drum to try and break out of our own
unholy and lonely prison
so I hone and polish my sword
strive to fashion my words
to reflect those of my Lord's
and my outside world is a wreck
and my inside world is at war
all those devils that I let out
just the other night and
when I was young, blind, and stumbling about
Oh, angels at hand
I am torn
my Love, give me strength
to survive this battle and become
a more perfect child reborn











55





Criminal Minds

'God created heaven and earth'
Not according to the evidence
'Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
you have no idea who and what you judge
if the sun is the only light you can see
you shall die because life comes from me'

Oh God have mercy
help me to find your light
I am sorry and I want to thank you
for giving me this taste of life
now I don't want to die
surely the difference between wrong and right
lies in the creator’s eyes
for only he holds the seeds
of the tree of life
who am I to decide
am I some kind of ground
I am here and I don't even know why
I hope the rain comes down
that these trees might grow up high
bugs crawl, rabbits hop,
and birds fly up in the sky
while men walk, talk, and judge
as if we had the right










56







we fill up and swell with pride
making it easy for the demons to deceive
and take us over inside
and when the Lord comes around
most of us run and hide
back to the faith of the evidence
we are here and wonder why
there they go dissecting creation
and I wonder when they will find
that the word of God is life
his gift, liberty of mind
sooner or later they'll discover God himself
and do you think they’re gonna try
to kill him or spit in his eye
they already blame and judge him
and they do it all the time
what is the difference between now and then
I sure hope we all open our eyes
in time to realize
before his judgment comes down
and destroys us for these crimes












57


True Colours

Some place themselves so high
that they look down on us like ants
all the money is green
hard to see when you have so many accountants

all the blood is red
but theirs is rarely seen
do those who have all that they need
send their own to the front to bleed

the earth is white and blue
pictures from outer space
those who come down and walk around
will surely find it an amazing place
full of beauty and life
being destroyed by the human race
they seem to be very short-sighted
for very few of them can see
beyond their own wants and greed
even though they were given
more than they could ever need

should we let them destroy all this land
designed to be God's kingdom
I guess we're going to have to
for this was given to them
and we shall all soon see
the glory of God and his wisdom
for the prophecies are all coming true before us
can you see Joseph falling into trouble
now who will protect his brother Judah
watch for the time draws near
the second coming of the prophesied Messiah
no flesh would be saved alive
if not for the glory of Jesus


58









Mt. Mole

All the money belongs to the government
our traditions tell in what god we trust
Baal's Sabbath is Sunday
this day time-and-a-half is forced upon us
blessing will turn to curse
because we worship immorality in the name of Jesus
the kingdom of heaven is at hand
we should explore this option
before we are removed from the promised land






















59
Saxon

Isaac's son
Saac's son
Saxon
O Israel where are you
I know you are not a Jew
Joseph come home
come home O child come home

I spy David's throne
we'll have to make preparations
to bring it back to Jerusalem
so that when our savior comes home
he will have a proper place to sit
there upon his father’s throne

for sins the Lord withheld the blessings
over twenty-five hundred years
and then we suddenly received them
swiftly they fade away
think we will ever learn our lesson
think we'll ever straighten our ways

'Be sure to observe my Sabbaths
keep the sanctified days
do not go around worshiping idols'
keep your morals in check
do you think about fornicating all day?
now blessings are fading away
does anybody else know
what does the word of God say

soon the skies will be iron
and the land will turn to brass
plagues shall scald our people
and our cities will break like glass
that fell down from the heavens
shattered and scattered all to pieces
we should have obeyed the laws of our father
like we were told to by the great king Jesus

O Ephraim, O Manasseh
I pray we learn our lesson fast
so that the pain doesn't have to last
we will all soon be slaves
do God's will and try to be brave
still I pray
my God have mercy
and I pray to see the day
when we all learn to live
within God's laws and learn his ways

O America, O Britain
nation overseas and mine
don't you know God is going to punish us
time after time after time
until we learn the way to happiness
and inherit eternal life
we will walk by the river of life that flows
I guess we’ll have to learn the hard way
I guess that's just how it goes
they don't believe God and they won’t believe me
I guess that soon enough
everybody in the world will know
everybody in the world will see

Jer: 50: 4-6
In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD,
the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together,
going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the LORD their God.
They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come,
and let us join ourselves to the LORD in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten.
My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray,
they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill,
they have forgotten their resting place.

Crossing the Beast

Hey! !
what do you think you’re doing
you can't work here on Sunday

'But I am a Jewish carpenter'

I don't care who or what you are
it's against the law!
you better pack up and get outta’ here
right now before I call the police!

'Ok, Ok, I will leave
wouldn't want to cross the beast'


















62










Diggers

Home is a grave where ya’ gonna rest
you go to work six days and you do your best
then you go home to the bills and the mess
do you need a day off from all this stress
life is a whirlwind and at the end of the quest
may you lay down and rest in peace























63








The American Party

If I were president
I would beat our swords into plowshares
then concentrate on feeding and housing the world
who could do this better than America
what nation would bite the hand that feeds them
what
oh no
well, Perhaps those who live in the jungle
will teach us to live off the land
after our devices destroy us





















64




Tarzan

Our nation’s fathers built a great nation
a nation that cherished the ideas of freedom and liberty
one nation under God
let those who would not let them down
form 'The American Party'
lest we fail them and worse
our children
truly a new system is in order
and we will find it one way or another
how can we bring down those in power
to elect God fearing souls
whose only true goal
is to love his sisters and brothers
and how would this guy survive
all the gimmicks and tricks of the others
should I write a new declaration
start a rebellion and build a nation
I'm all fired up let's go
do you really think anybody cares
and do you think there's any possibility
of creating a system that's fair
and if we did would anybody want it
oh, no












65
Shackles and Chains

What will happen when
we lose respect for our government
what will happen if
those whom we elect become corrupt
we laugh and ridicule our presidents
but war is serious business
and do you think
that our enemies want to be like us
gimmicks, tricks, and greed
brothels, rioting, and beggars
looking for a handout in our streets
so far in debt that we cannot even see
and we keep wanting to live
well beyond our means
O America
what has happened to you
and what will happen to any free nation
whose morals become loose
liberty and freedom has a price
and we all must sacrifice
put away sinful thoughts inside
give well especially to your workers
for they are not charity
they are quite literally
your money
watch the dollar fall
if you don't believe me
we should try to be
an example for other nations to see
what happens when a people lives right
don't you know
we could have God on our side
let us pull together and try
oh how can we get there from here
in the pitch black of night




66








Diseased

America,
potential being choked by politicians and endless liability
power, lawyers, and greed
tricks, facades, and sleaze
think liberty means do as you please
money is the root of all evil
upon it those who farm it feed
and Mammon eats all that he sees
soon the vultures will have to eat each other
from sea to shining sea





















67

The Crusade

A government by and for the people
has become by and for the rich
once a safe haven for the poor and downtrodden
once a great eagle out for justice
now Mammon sits and laughs
as we stand around and bitch
the lawyers are sharpening their knives
because they enjoy an evil feast
they rule the world along side false prophets
who like Dracula have fangs for teeth
they suck the life out of God's word
then turn into werewolves to eat the meat
and who on earth cannot see
how they chain us that we are not free
seasonal fantasies they try and feed us
we observe their lies in the name of Jesus
observe God's Sabbaths and there'll be no job for you
no money and how will you eat
the commandments of God they cheat
while sitting upon the highest of seats
and are you so thoroughly deceived
or can you see the fathers of blasphemy
they promote the day of the sun
the same is a sign of the beast
a shadow of things to come
is upon us watch and see












68





the leaders of nations free
get down upon their knee
and worship the unholy beast
by placing a kiss upon his ring
and what do you truly believe
will not all of us suffer for such a thing
take a look at the military's machines
they will eventually destroy this world
and almost everything that lives
even the innocent little boys and girls
and for what does he crave such power
and why does the world worship those who sit in his towers
and do I stand alone to bring them down
from their thrones so way up high
behold,
a hundred and forty four thousand
coming from every tribe
the word of God in their mouths
and coming in the sky

















69










Speechless

She's just another image for the masses to worship
waved around by some anti-Christ religion
looking for some kind of worldly power and glory
Just think about it, Ephesus, what did she say

























70






The Burning

Our money will burn

our flesh
will burn

our world
will burn

In time the sun will expand
and our entire solar system
will burn

but the poems that I write
shall never die
at least not the ones
that reflect the light
so draw a cup of faith
and take a sip
from the waters of life















71





The March

We are all marching toward the kingdom of heaven
but not all of us are marching against her
sword and flag
in our mouths and at our fingertips
sinners are not the enemy
but sin itself
the battle is not with our brothers
but our demons
and what is a brother?
repenting demon
that's what I am
and in the end who will be responsible
truly
I am the man



















72


O' brother
will you think of me when I am dust
and all that is
and all that will ever be
is but a memory
will my memory haunt you
what am I
O' brothers
know you not,
as long as ignorance prevails
and men turn deaf ears toward wisdom
liars and false prophets will rule over us
they ask not because they do not believe
they prop up idols and strange deities
that do not answer
because they cannot speak
why look for another
they are all the same that's just how it goes
we are all searching and nobody knows
how to discern truth
or how to listen to and for God's word
but those seeking glory in heaven
will surely be rejected on earth
and who or what will be remembered
when all things fade away
but those who fight for the King
strong bold and brave
full of the spirit and faith
know well that the walls of their cities
are grown men that repent kneel and pray
then strive to turn away
because they understand
and hear what our holy father has to say






73







People Talk

People talk about heaven
and they talk about hell
few read the Bible for themselves
so what do you think we know
only what we are told
such a beautiful evening
we leave the church all warm and fuzzy
see their faces how they shine
O' yes, I had a wonderful time
the preacher said everything just right
we're all going to heaven
and our world is doing fine
and we all sang together
because we love one another
and you know we trust
the wolf behind the altar
















74







Resurrections

Want to go to heaven?

here we are

the kingdom belongs to those
who do their best to live by her laws
those who build her culture and search
for the understanding, wisdom, and mercy
of her chosen king
for these are the children of God
and who shall be great in heaven
if not those who overcome
the obstacles and cares of this world
for the hope and the faith of the world to come
rest assured that
God has kept his promises to Abraham
and he will keep his promise to us
the kingdom of heaven is coming
along with the judgments and the resurrections
of just and the unjust













75











The Resident

Oh my God forgive us
My lord forgive us all
we kick out devils and then
seven more vicious than the first
come strolling in
tempting us to sin
until our temples crumble and fall
we are all just a part of a world
full of evil and chaos
a world that has gone insane
Oh how I wish I could build myself to be
a home where you could dwell without shame
















76











The Philosophers

So, basically what you’re saying is
You’re going to go to heaven when you die
instead of building it while we’re still alive
we could try
and if nobody listens
we should patiently wait for the Messiah
while building it on the inside
and what is the difference
I'd say obedience and the lack thereof



















77
Center

Some are searching for truth
O' my Lord, are they looking for you
I tell them, 'The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! ”
O' my God
help them to understand
come, my little audience of nine
believe me when I say
these things are not hard to find
except maybe in the winter
towards the end of December
seems something else hides inside
and center
and I also know that he who swung the ax
also grafts
these sayings who can receive
open your eyes child
open them and see
ask whatever you will
O' tell me what do you seek
some say that I am left
and some say that I am right
some say I am sitting on the fence
watching stars collide
and maybe they are right
crashing into their own destruction
it is prophesied
shall it not come to fruition?
think that I do not care
what do you want me to say
we should beat our swords into plowshares
and we should start today
I am not a prophet
just a guy upon this earth
sitting here and watching
I pray the poems that I sit down and write
do not shed darkness but light
still, I am a sinner just like you
but sometimes you have to stand up for what is right
the hairy scary truth
you could die just like Jesus Christ

but with what and how
do the humbled and meek people fight
and who is their God
they pray for goodness and mercy
O' my God what a wonderful thing
I hope these get to live forever
forever on an earth as kings
and I pray that they find the wisdom
for goodness and mercy certainly seem to be
like pretty good goals to achieve
yet, how can we bring about these things
our only weapons words and deeds
good will toward the eyes of God
and the eyes of his glorious King
to the glory of his words I will fight
to the glory of his words I will die
for the glory of his words I will live again
at the very least to tell you all
that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand
who can let it shine
but those who are possessed by this
center it deep inside
the resurrection is coming
will you feel at home
or be cast out with your pride,
the false prophets, and all of their lies
come on, I don't want you to die
turn around, turn around I cry
we might just live again
Come on, we gotta try
some cannot and I know why
know this,
that the rich possess their consolation
and sometimes I wish I had the strength to say
It would be better to give it all away
come down here where the servants play
for we are not here to rule
but perhaps, to serve those who cannot stay
you say the price is too high?

give a little anyway
for what will you fall
better to be a little
than to be nothing at all
God's kingdom will be here any day
or so it seems to me anyway
O' my
what shall I write
my love, if you show them something
what can I confirm?
I am just another man
sinning upon this earth
to what shall I give birth
words standing as I kneel and pray
shaking in fear of them
right now, today
here your presence is known
and look how little I have grown

WOW
living in the world today
the science and its pace
quantum physics and parallel space
O' my God
what is the human race
I know that we have some purpose
here we are
and you have fulfilled your promises
the son walked on earth as a man
he gave us some words to heed
but we refuse to understand
most of the prophets were killed
but I will see and say what I can
we judge what is good and evil
and I ask, 'What defined the very first man? '
who can say, but what is more important
who can understand

O' snake
what have you done
O' prince of the air
was it all in fun
how I wish I could rule over you and I have faith
that I will some day
I will
we will
surely this is God's will
O' man, who will be given rights
to eat from the tree of life
some drink from the river still
yes, I am quite sure
that some drink from the waters still
am I in the Kingdom of Heaven
who is and who can be
if not those who believe
enough to make you real
and who on earth can see
the fire of your jealousy
some die for strange gods
that do not talk or feel
some of them no more than stone
or some spirit of the dead
that no one on earth can heal
coming to life as lies
like the one sliding down the chimney
into the fire tonight
remnants of the Gods of Babylon
spiritual monsters that feed upon
this world’s fleshy headed minds
who can find the Kingdom of Heaven
here in this age of confusion
seek the will of the Lord
for his wisdom is far from delusions
how can any think with a clear mind
there are so many false gods
what God shall this one and that one find
and will they fall in line
behind
their chosen king

O’ my Lord, what am I
who can possibly decide
am I the least in the Kingdom of Heaven?
if not me then who
I hope he's my friend too
inside and out we dwell
everybody rebels
and everybody dies
here in this world of death and hell
O' nine
what do you hear?
do tell
what will we find?
are we running out of time
to what God will you honor and sing
Armageddon is coming
least, so says my King
we should all be trembling with fear
the day of the Lord is near
for these are evil days
false gods are all around
all around I say
many dwell in their prisons
can you perceive their cage
and how will you escape
the monsters that we create
others wait for a Messiah
that has long since come and gone
peace on earth but his words divided
everyone an army believing something
and we are all divided into ones
I wonder who will win
I wonder who has won
I wonder who sits back, laughs and says
it was all just for fun
roulette with a loaded gun
for fire and for power
bombs measured in megatons
yeah, megatons
we all know how to split the atom
let's see if we can split the proton
and the tiny things that exist,
in many places at once
and for what O' children of men
I know that you love the darkness
because I can see how you love to sin
will you use the science of creation against him
you know who
the designer, the ultimate definer
and I know we do
think we are at peace with our creator
does he live in and out of you
in and out of time and space
what are we to you my love
me and all this human race
thy footstool?
my God, O my God
I just hope I can find some grace
within the depth of your eyes
I am just one man, I am not a nation
and if I ever am
I pray the people learn to fear
the God of all creation
for truly his is the everlasting kingdom
that resides under and above
our tiny yellow sun
shining down on everyone
every heart is a Kingdom
design yours to live at peace
within our Lord's Kingdom of Heaven
rest assured, that he takes no pleasure in destruction
and not one soul has died
that cannot rise in the resurrection
those who show goodness and mercy
will surely find it
come, let's all live and dwell within
God Almighty's Holy Spirit

Center Of The Universe

Where is the center of the universe
God has chosen earth
he filled it with life and wonder
then brought forth a creature in his own image
right up out of her dirt
where is the kingdom of heaven
now that the creatures have taken it away
this earth was created to be God's footstool
and soon will come the day
when his throne will be restored
into it's proper place
his son will rule from Jerusalem
when he comes home to stay
glory to the king
that we killed and put away
if we were wise we would extend our welcome
by walking in his ways
think if he came we would kill him again
then pray to our own gods in his name
yes again we would kill him
we do it everyday
he came to this earth to save us
from our evil ways
but we prefer to sin
who is going to be saved
the prophets rise in our midst
then this world destroys them
and how is it,
that their words never fade
for years they linger on
their spirit will rule this earth
forever after this world is gone

Journey of Faith

From the smallest atom
to the largest galaxy
everything is unwinding
with precisely perfect timing
stories unfolding, poems rhyming
birds flying in the sky
comets passing closely by
children pointing and smiling
growing old we're slowly dieing
prophets warning
babies crying
chicken in the oil
bubbling and frying
seems few on earth are truly trying
turn a penny in the gumball machine
what thing worthwhile comes easy
the shakedown is surely coming
I guess we will see who truly believes
and who shall wither by the wayside

Bones in the Closet

I don't know what the future holds
but I know
immorality has its reward
bones in the closet
I have mine and you have yours
sometimes I fear for us all
one of the spirits of those bones just walked by
and he was strong and tall
ever wonder who is the architect
drawing up our pains and death
probably someone we've known all of our lives
lurking in the depths way deep down inside
jumping out of our mouths and out of our eyes
when we become full of hate or pride
or when we do those things
that we later try to hide
from the Lord when he visits and asks
what did you do and why
bones in the closet
they are fierce dogs on a leash
and when the devil lets go
there will be gnashing of teeth
lest we find a way to put them asleep
another way is what we need
another way to pay for our deeds
those who repent and turn away
may well receive forgiveness and grace
and how will Satan get paid
we all pound the nails into the cross
our sins cause great pain
We are all in debt to his holy name
think you'll be forgiven
I guess we're going to find out
come judgment day



86






She's on T.V.

Eighteen inches of laundry on the floor
I open up the dresser drawer
it is empty
I am happy-go-lucky
but I don't think that she can see me
she's buried herself in the TV
depression hurts
yeah it hurts
I wonder what is the source
I pray that those who thank God
can put it out and lock the door
inside her home is a disaster
depression has become her master
and I don't think she loves me or anything
anymore
anymore

Alarm Clock’s Warning

The alarm clock’s warning woke her up in the morning
but all she wanted was to keep on snoring
because the nightmares are better than the life she lives where the demons and monsters are real
and how does this make you feel
what do you want
what do you need
I get so damn tired
of being ruled over by greed
Hey!
what do you want
what do you need
I get so tired
of being ruled by greed
I sure hope that we don't get caught up in the molars
where the rich chew and grind their meat
all I want
is all we need
to live a simple life
and become a child of peace

We go to work
we earn our pay and it really doesn't matter
we have no say
think I want to be rich
I don't wanna’ live that way
I just pray God will have mercy on us come judgment day
and there is only one thing
that really makes me afraid
that's to have the root of all evil
stacked up in the bank and wearing my name





88





the bills are adding up and coming in the mail
late charges and interest when our situation fails
they talk about freedom but the stress is hell
The alarm clock’s warning woke her up in the morning
but all she wanted was to keep on snoring
because the nightmares are better than the life she lives where the demons and monsters are real
and how does this make you feel
now we all know we're supposed to love our neighbor
but if you look at one wrong he might call his lawyer
liability and judgments slowly rot our nation
and you'd think the politicians might not forget to mention
the problem we have with all this inflation
everything but my pay keeps on going up
I guess that I'm just flat out of luck
many say that crime doesn't pay but I know that money corrupts
I guess it's no crime when you make and twist the rules
to take what they take from us
The alarm clock’s warning woke her up in the morning
but all she wanted was to keep on snoring
because the nightmares are better than the life she lives where the demons and monsters are real
and how does this make you feel

No Mommy No

Raising the gun aiming it at her daughter
she thought,
I'll send my baby to see her departed father
who just recently died
big bright eyes looking up high
no mommy no she cried
the only sound the ringing in her ears
pushed the gun against her face full of tears
she shakes as they roll down from her eyes
thoughts of suicide
gun lowered
resisting what many call the unforgivable sin
I scream, 'What is worse,
to kill yourself or the innocent? '
or to teach that we go to heaven when we die
why oh why do they believe this lie
bullet hole in your daughter’s head
I'm telling you all that she is dead
from now until the time of the resurrection

















90





they discard the Word of God
then walk around confused without direction
lovers of darkness turn to liars for wisdom
he has a Bible in his hand let’s go hear him
and of course they tell you what you want to hear
I tell you all that there is a God
and we should all tremble with fear
did you think cold-blooded murder would please him
do you think going to church will save you
what has caused you to commit this sin
did they fail to teach you about the devils within
here you are entertaining them
I tell you all that she was dead
the moment these thoughts took over her head
tell me now can you see?
or do you also want to put a bullet in me
the unforgivable sin is blasphemy against the holy spirit
said don't you do it and do you remember hearing it
before the blast and the ringing
No mommy no she cried
no mommy no then she died















91

The Madness

I miss the married life
Oh how I wish that the anti-Christ
hadn't seduced my world
hadn't seduced my wife
I should have known from the beginning
when she said he was close to life
and that we should all practice his lies
now here I am all alone
how I wish that I had a woman
instead of this broken home
divorce cannot set us free
according to the words of the king
I am here and either way
it is adultery
damsel what shall I say
come and die with me?
denial run back to the darkness
where it is very hard to see
while I stand here in the fire
and pray to God for our mercy

perhaps I should publish a book
and you know I love to write
I have nothing else to do
now that I have lost my wife
I'll bring down my enemy
sitting upon his throne so high
truth will cut him to size
and strip him of his pride
then I'll look in his eyes
and say







92




you teach the people to worship false gods
then tell them to observe strange holy days
you have set up idols
these things lead the children astray
the dead are not in heaven
they are waiting for the resurrection
heaven will be here on earth
and there will be a judgment day
open the Bible in your hand
tell me, what does it say
and where will you be
do you want to live without flesh and bone
you just might find yourself there
living without a home
broken and all alone
an eye for an eye
here am I
we are here and still alive
don't you think you should apologize
to all the world and to me and my wife
for all those lies before it is all too late
I do not hate
let us all forgive each other and walk
right up out of the grave
for all those who honestly repent
will surely find some grace










93




Author’s Bride

Put out of the kingdom again
seems adultery is still a sin
my body is on fire
in the middle of the night
and I am oh so tired
how I wish that I could fall asleep
Oh how I wish
that my flesh would give me some peace

I hope someday they'll let me in again
until then I guess I'll walk through this land
full of witchcraft and sorcerers and I know
that I am no different than them
I put my head down in the water
and repent

My love, what is my life
I am lonely
and I am a man
sometimes a man must stand up for what is right
even if it means firing your wife
my love forgive me
and I know my true bride
is those that bring the children
that I name after I write










94







About A Girl

It's about a man who painfully put away his wife
I cannot tell you how he cried
he thought he might go out and try
but it tears him away
from his one true bride
and those who know my work
know my true love is life

tell me what is a man
and who can understand
I do not write to the world
but to the spirit close at hand




















95











Dancing with Swords

These works are but a dance at the wedding
and I dance with the bride, and I dance with you, and I dance for them,
and sometimes I dance with myself, and everyone is invited.
Yet some plot and plan to pollute the bride
while others pass right on by
some join in the dance
and some are going to fry
therefore I pray for mercy
for everyone including my wife
and sometimes I fear the words
that I name after I write

















96

Twisted Religion

A child of Abraham journeyed to Babylon for a visit
he liked it there so much that he decided to stay
in time he changed the name of his god to Baal
because he wanted to fit in
but he kept the customs and holidays of his fathers
as time went on he became despised by the people of Babylon
for in their eyes he was a false prophet because his God had the
same name but not the same customs and he became hated and cast out
and no town or nation would receive him after that
only the worms and darkness

woe unto you false prophets who say you are Christian and are not
the kingdom of heaven is at hand yet many of his children are lost
because their church wears an idol that states ours is a church of God
you changed the name but kept the customs of Babylon
what is the duty of the church if not teach God's laws
and keep the customs and the holy days that the word of God has taught?
Jesus did not come to free us of God's law
but to keep them one and all
to set an example for the entire world
that none of us would have to fall
and that everyone would know
that you don't have to be a child of Abraham
to be a child of God
come
let's all go to heaven
let's all learn her customs and learn to love her laws
love thy neighbor a good place to start
this we must do
from deepest depths of our heart








97
Just for Fun

Can you hear me
can you hear
think the end is near
flesh melting from bone
as galaxies tremble and quake
the Lord in the sky with fire in his eyes
and the ground begins to shake
and for what will he destroy the world
how is it you do not know
the fierce wrath of his jealousy
his jealousy
because we worship false gods
false gods
O' valentine did you give it thought
how 'bout you Ole Santa Clause
Sunday the Sabbath of Babylon
Easter the bride of Baal
O' false prophets don't you know
you’re all going to be cast into hell
can you hear
O’ can you hear
dropp to your knees and tremble with fear
the congregation looks to you for truth
you make me want to puke
I am sorry
there is no place for you in my kingdom
good riddance
and good bye
I hope you enjoy the fire
say hello to your demons
and the world that you so admired
for now our king is the Lord
and all his children sing
and you won’t be around to oppress us
with your lies and your ways anymore
O' crispy crispy critter
do tell, what was the lying for
just for fun
just for fun
you destroyed everyone
just for fun




One Kingdom

I know there is more than one Jesus
you have yours and I have mine
the guy across the street prays to his
almost all the time
but there is only one
that writes in the book of life
only one of them is the Christ
pray that the one will open your eyes
think that you are wise?
is there a Jesus in your mind
I have read that he came to divide
there is only one Jesus of the Bible
discount all the others
and you might find the light
he walked in paths cut by the father
whose father do you idolize
establish his law and the word within
and you just might realize
that God's truth is very real
and his spirit very much alive
for what are you willing to die
repent and prepare to fight
for his kingdom at hand












99




Iceberg

What is life
memories fade away
like youth and the things of the day
talent, skills, and lessons learned
the heat of a flame that burns
poetic passions
and thoughts discerned
time and days to live and learn
who and what to serve
the Jews serve God by remembering his days
yet I fear very few
are familiar with his ways
and don't you think it's kind of funny
look at how much they love their money
those who expect extras for free
when you’re already working for them
cheap cheap cheap
will never leave you a tip
but they'll push or guilt you for a discount
even if you’re already pissed
those who learn to serve Mammon
sail upon deep and dangerous waters
in their mighty yet sinking ships













100 The Warning

It is a warning
for I fear that another Hitler will rise
or worse
the anti-Christ
the son of God was a Jew
and don't you ever wonder
who and what are you
can you see the world through eyes like these
the Sabbath a sign between God and his own
yet the world rests with the beast
and he just might sink his teeth into you
on his next holy day feast

it is a warning
a warning to the children of God
and to the world
and to all of those who become filled with greed
you cannot love God and Mammon
God's true children are humble and meek
you cannot be his child
with out a heart full of love and charity

possession oppression possession oppression
war a demonic feast
and the world will surely destroy herself
I just pray she does not destroy you or me
I offend all for all offend God
who lives without sin
every woman and every man
needs to earnestly repent
and can you see what time it is
the monster sits upon his high mountain
and the world worships him
growing in power and saying, 'I am Christian'
all the while teaching the world to sin
and who on this earth is your faithful friend
may the word of the Lord haunt you
until the bitter end

101








Coal Train

Tales tall
most start off pretty small
you'd think
this couldn't hurt anything at all
but some just grow and grow
like a weed they grow right out of control
then turn in to monsters that devour our world!

then with a twinkle in our eye
we discard truth for lies and tell them
to our own little boys and girls




















102
Ft. Nicholas

I was living just outside of Fort Nicholas
one of the very strongholds of hell
they built it high on a mountain
even higher than I can tell
but I don't think it was high enough
to escape that rancid smell
of the blood that filled the valleys
from those who tripped and fell
so I climbed up on the rooftops
and this is what I yelled:
'What is worse
a golden calf at Mt Sinai
or reindeer in the sky
our children walk in a place
darker than the darkest night
some in the name of the Lord
think he delights in lies
that's what the devil is for'
now I cannot tell you why
they keep this fortress so close
in their hearts and in their minds
and I tried so hard to warn them
but everybody just walked on by
leaving me and my warning
in the dust and far behind
no one even paid attention
until the first commandment was mentioned
then they threw me out
because they preferred their world of deception
I heard them laugh all over town
now I walk alone with truth in heaven
knowing that the walls of Jericho came down
and I am in no hurry
to make that final lap around
I love so many inside
so I sat down and I cried and cried
how I wish they would all just walk away
so that this false god could finally lay down and die

103






Mystery Babylon the Great

O' ashes
either Jesus was a Pagan
or you’re not a Christian
were you not warned about the liar
the anti-Christ in white
soon to be thrown into the fire
those who want death to Passover
should not observe false gods like Easter
if you want to become a child of God
you must obey his laws
and what do you have to lose
your life?

just like Jesus Christ
some believe that he came to bring peace
but he said, 'I have come to divide'
now Christians serve Pagan gods
somehow I am not surprised
O' 'Mystery Babylon the Great'
these things my Lord prophesied













104









The Face of Evil

Men are men
devils are devils
the angels draw close to God
for only God is good
call no man on earth your holy father
any child could understand this phrase
many try and twist these words
in an attempt to take his place






















105



White Horse Mountain

Teacher teacher
life or deceiver
pompous delusion
the contemplation
can a man of Christ
be antichristian
spread the light
or misinformation
take the time
look up Matthew twelve dash nine
these words are God's and now they are mine
no need to read between the lines
for they are very clear
but not all who read them can hear
call no man your father on earth
I guess that blasphemy has its perks
holy father
holy father
they all beat feet to kiss his ring
leaders of the world line up
none of them follow me
few hold truth in hand
those who do understand
open your mind if you can
and what do you oppress
if you can't
truth
this they try and try to cover up and hide
still a few learn to see deep inside
and if you try you will find
the winds of truth blowing
within your mind




106




Dark Days Indeed

The blind stand up to teach us
my God can you hear their speeches
these days are growing dark indeed
it's getting very hard to see

I'm surprised the ground beneath our feet
doesn't turn into jaws with razor sharp teeth
we are always angling for more than our share
adulterous minds and their evil glances and stares
are there no prophets to come and warn us
we ignore the words of Jesus
except for hell’s agents who learn to twist them
they set up false gods and idols for us to worship
we are deceived by their costumes and their desire to win
we forsake the truth of God for those with no truth within
everybody sins
few feel the need to repent
dark days indeed
I am surprised that the air we breath
does not ignite from the heat
or that the water that we drink
doesn't choke us to our knees
dark days indeed
dark spirits dwell in man
because these are the ones we feed










107





The Horrors

Passover afternoon
I am reading the gospel of Luke
searching the scriptures for truth
and I heard a woman cry out loud
her voice heard above the crowd
'Blessed is the woman who carried you in her womb'
and the Lord said, 'yea rather,
blessed are those who do
what the scriptures tell them to'
now I know
that the fire burns very hot
for those who teach us to worship
strange things like the mother of God

Peter, James, and John
were on a mountain fast asleep
Peter woke up and saw the Lord Jesus
shining and visiting with Elias and Moses
Peter said, 'We'll build temples for all three
Moses, Elias, and thee'
just then a cloud came down to surround them
and a voice thundered, ” This is my beloved son:
hear him”











108







this, and millions are deceived
I guess they just can't see
that we're not supposed to be
hailing anyone else but Jesus
yet unto this very day they teach
millions to hail Mary
while praying to her and counting beads
oh the horror that must be waiting
for those that plant these evil seeds
they lock up the doors of heaven
that nobody on earth can see
we should open the word of God
and let his spirit teach us
instead of following along
with those who attempt deceive us
let us go out and teach what Jesus taught
even if nobody believes us
and what does it mean to repent
it is not enough to say I am sorry
but we must turn away from our sins
the kingdom of heaven is coming
let us prepare ourselves within












109










You In Me

If our race survives another thousand years,
will we not learn to create a man from dirt?
perhaps another universe?
O' Adam, truly we are made in his image
O' Lord, truly we are Gods
my Love, who will see?
Yes, I do believe!
my religion is you in me.





















110





Slow Tempered


Slow Tempered Saturday afternoon
the millennial Sabbath is coming
surely there is plenty to do
and what are we getting ready for
seems to me that we are getting ready for war
truly we were warned
those who lived by the sword shall die by the sword
and many will weep and cry
we will all receive a just reward and I fear
most of us will die
and or fry

while the meek inherit the earth
many will witness prophets
rise up out of the dirt
and where will we go
where will we hide
when the Great One shows us
the devils inside
and we all curl up and tremble
from the glory of his might
one prays for our mercy in heaven
let Jesus become our Christ










111
Dry Tear

Alas,
We are all false prophets
none of us are true
consider these words of wisdom
I offer them as proof
all go to the grave
none of us get to stay
we will lie there and rot away
our lives lived in vain

still some patiently wait
for the promise of the judgment day
resurrection and who will awake
and do you wait in fear
for our creator to appear
men will pray for death!
we shall surely repent to tears

the thoughts within your brain
which ones did you entertain
they are roads to death or life
were you not given the power to decide
between what is wrong or right?
















112





woe unto the so-called Christians
who attempt to destroy the Christ
and all those who stand on stages
twisting the words of life
that none on earth can see
for the darkness of your light


where is the kingdom of heaven
is it not where men practice all of God's laws
you hold the Bible in your hand
into the pit your protests fall
into the pit the world does fall

you use the power of our savior’s name
to bring our world to flames
and who do you think we will blame
our father?
or the imposter who wears the name

















113








Praise

Praise and glory to God
for he took it upon himself to create all the universe
and the earth and the fatness thereof
my lord my love what could possibly be the next challenge
to raise the dead
is it a simple thing for one who lives forever and ever
one day to place the stars in the heavens numbered
as the men observe the illusion and the poem
that all who above the ground are alive
and that all below are dead
while God chooses the ones he loves
and the ones that will fill his kingdom



















114










What to Say

Some say time is marching forward
other watch as it ticks away
what to say
does God's spirit stand behind altars?
Saturday, Sunday, did you have a day off
on what day did you sacrifice your thoughts
and turn them towards your God
just because you couldn't make the Sabbath
does not mean you shouldn't make it at all
come home child come home



















115








7

So what do you think is the mark of the beast
what is so different than the way it should be
tell the world your gonna rest on Saturday
and you will see the wolf's shiny teeth
hiding underneath the cloak of a sheep
oh Judah what do you see
what will happen if you deny your king
surely another will be set over you
and what will you do
think my lord committed blasphemy
this you shall surely see
wail moan and cry
soon comes the anti-Christ


















116





The Christizing

Me, I silently scream
come, here is a good one

The bloody lamb on their doorposts
he denied none of them
unto this very day
many deny the lamb
and can you see his power
gods of old have changed their names
they want to be his bride
but they still play the same ol' games
come home O’ child come home
O' world, is it not written in her laws
that you can become a child of God
what was it that Jesus taught
magnify the God of hosts
throughout all the land
good news from the Messiah
the kingdom of heaven is at hand!















117










The Remembrance

It must be Passover
I just saw the spirit
out and about around town
rummaging around in the lost and found

may you cry this day























118








The Careless

The unleavened bread tastes like cardboard
because they couldn't care less
you'd think that on a day like this
they'd bring forth their very best
dip it into the wine and you might find
the lamb of God inside your mind
and do you think he couldn't care less
he died for the sins of a world
that prefers to eat and drink in darkness
or not at all





















119


Black

The Egyptian mothers were crying
their firstborn lying in their arms and dieing
oh Ramses, look at what your heart of stone has done
and where is your firstborn son
Moses and the workers are gone
who will build your temples now
oh Isis where is thy crown
now here we are once again
no morals and full of sin
and those who worship false gods possess the land
who is going to save us
oh how I miss King David
a great warrior full of faith in God
now he's gone all gone
but I know if he were alive
they'd hang him on a cross
a spectacle for all to see
a death for all to watch
sin and his friends would put him there to die
greater than David was God's only begotten son
think the almighty broke down wailed and cried
now they all gather around his words
and twist them into lies
who will eat his flesh
who will drink the wine
the bread and blood of Christ
come, it is Passover time










120






many deny him and eat and drink this in vain
who can discern my words
are they not a sign of the times
today Moses and David are dust in the wind
they came and they saw then did what they did
Jesus came to deliver God's people from their sins
and what would happen to them
if his nation were known
this world destroys the kingdom of heaven
and all the seeds that we've sown
but none will prevail against her
and my lord sitting upon her throne
all bow down and worship his words
or be tuned to dust and bones
soon my love will be here on earth
for his majesty is coming home



















121










Invisible Man

You wouldn't know that today was Passover
all the children were in school
and workers were doing the work that they do
so I asked one walking down the street
he laughed and said, 'I am not a Jew'
but this holy day is for all of God's children
now I wonder, what are you






















122









Children of God

And the Levites stand on the corner
begging for a dime
they wonder,
why can't I just knock on my brothers door
and tell them, I am here to dine
shower and spend the night
there's one now standing on the corner
think I'll give him a couple a’ bucks
deep down within my soul
I know it's not enough




















123









Relative

Time and scale are relative
say you live for ten billion years
how fast six thousand would fly by
don't fall asleep or blink your eyes
or you just might miss me waving hello
goodbye
and if you lived forever
you'd see the universe expand into nothing anymore
then watch it become reborn
its children stretching out into God knows where
what a neat thing to see
my God I hope I'm there


















124









The Home Coming

Day break
time to go chase death
the devils get up and put on
our fancy suits of flesh
then they go out to sin the day away
the judges have lost their innocence
and now all of our thoughts go astray
thoughts of lust, pride, and selfishness
immorality will surely win the day
fear of God the road to light
and I wonder how, or if any
will ever find their way


















125






Castle Walls

Who would harbor the devils
if I could put them out of him
and what makes any of us think
that we are better than them
live another day
another day my friend
and know that those who truly believe
repent and turn away from sin
for if we want to build God's kingdom on earth
we must realize his kingdom within
so that on the day of resurrection
we will be found fit to live as gods again
for the Lord will choose and the chosen
are his wife, his church, and his children
these will heal the sick and raise the dead
according to the will of the Father
and who knows what else was said
live your life as a book of life
lest your name be found in the book of the dead














126



The Abortion

Some churches complain about abortion rights
but we all justify the things we do in our minds
they should go home and teach their proselytes
to keep their pants on and closed up tight
until they are ready to multiply
who is ultimately to blame
many churches sin without shame
they whore around with false gods
and isn't it just the same
and can you see their children
howling from the pain
burning engulfed in flames

this world leads our children
to spread legs because they want to be cool
but sex without purpose should be far from you
living here in the godless society
they say, 'It is not born just kill the baby'
sex sells sex sells let’s sell sex
well sing about it
then splash it all over our television sets
half naked women on the magazine racks
set at a Child’s eye level
come on come on come on everybody
let’s all go act like the devil

this godless society will be aborted
and all those beings that prefer to be immoral,
they shall surely die
when the Lord comes down from heaven
there will be nowhere to run or hide





127




Peace

Want peace? the grave seems a peaceful place
peace in house of corruption?
peace in a place of idolatry and blasphemies
peace while children starve to death
peace in halls struggling for power
Peace
want peace? destroy the world! !
Word:
'Unless those days were shortened there would be no flesh saved alive'

What do you really think
think we can live in peace
while conjuring up demons to war against the creator?
think we can live in peace
while the children of God come up with new ways to take advantage of their neighbors?
and what say the wise?
we are all divided against each other, all who are divided against the Lord
and is it not to say,
you have your truth, go in peace

DeadLine and the Whispers

The Lord cometh and he goeth he giveth and he taketh
but you didn't hear it from me
if it feels like a chain then break it
all but the yoke of the Lord

The American Dream

I am the man
who mops the floor
I work every day
how can I be so damn poor
what we need is a war on poverty
hey Mr. President look at me
want to spend money on a war
who 'round here is the terrorist
I to wield a pen as a sword

the children go to school
where they teach them to sing
America is great let freedom ring
but the liberty bell is cracked
perhaps she knew something
I don't think we will ever be free
until we find a system that runs on morals
instead of greed

I am a riot
a true American
think I want to vote
for another president
I’ll cast my vote for the working man
we’ll bring you down
and build a new system

tell me,
while you’re out in your yacht
alone in your thoughts
do you think about me or how to get
more than you got
nice how everything clicks for you
I am a line in the sand
and I bring bad news




130




I am a riot
a true American
think I want to vote
for another president
I’ll cast my vote for the working man
we’ll bring you down
and build a new system

I am a man who lives under the bridge
just me, my friends, and all of their kids
and do you really think
that we are free
I live in prison
of poverty
and how can this be
I make twice the minimum wage
we take our baths
right out in the lake
freedom is gone
an idea of the past
security deposit, first and last
just another fading hope that I once had
gotta’ keep the beater insured
and pay for the gas
so I can go to work at some job
where the pay is half-ass
the money I make barely buys us food
but I’d rather live like this
than to be like you

(continued)






131









I see you drive by
in your Mercedes Benz
laughing at me
with all of your friends
you take advantage of the working man
even though we're all doing
the best that we can
I am a riot
a true American
think I want to vote
for another president
I’ll cast my vote for the working man
we’ll bring you down
and build a new system

A Thanksgiving Poem

And the spirit of America was out walking around
looking for a new king
one bold and brave enough
to change everything
and strong enough to pull her reigns back
toward a high standard of morals
according to the words of the God in which we trust
a new America under a new system
And didn't our fathers start out
wanting to build a kingdom of God
Oh, Manasseh
who has blessed you
who will curse you
your president cannot save you
let's all repent and go back to that place where we belong
and do what we do best and turn away
from doing those things that we know are wrong
this we must do
if we're ever going to rise up out of the ashes
to once again be healthy and strong
let us learn from our mistakes
so that we just might become a human race
worthy to spread out into the heavens
and I know
that for this they long







133






Grace and The Judges

Adam ate the apple
he wanted to judge for himself
and we are all his children

judgments of the judges
the wise judge all things
it would be wise not to judge at all
those who judge will be judged
to judge our very nature
some will judge angels
and how can we judge angels
when we cannot even recognize the devils within
and if we say we recognize them and then sin
how is it that we can judge ourselves worthy
to inherit the kingdom of heaven

into the fires again, Oh man
if we inherit the kingdom of heaven
what will we do when we get there
and how is it that you do not know
we were formed from the dust of the earth
and we are already home











134




Mark's Prophecy

May God's voice
fall upon ears wide open

and the stars go on and on and on and
we are belittled by them
some to the point of everlasting despair
for they reason within themselves,
“No creature could possibly have created all of this”
While others say look at the beauty, the power, and the glory
and say,
“Truly all things are possible for an everlasting God”
for what is scale and reason to him that lives and has lived
for ever and ever
his children shall fill the universe
and the faithful shall visit them
they will exalt God's truth and his title:
Good Father
which is to say:
Holy Father
and they shall carry his love with them
and teach the women and men
to repent and to turn away from sin
some will live and die again
just like Jesus Christ
did way back when
he died for the love of God
now all things reside in his kingdom

I have to agree, Lolly,
I guess it is pretty sermon like. Does that make it bad? Or as something no one wants to hear?
Here's my newest favorite sermon. I went out looking for a good one. Just for those who are thirsty for truth. It's from the book of Enoch, written before the flood. Only seven generations after Adam, and I just wanted to share something very special with you, and let you know that:
To know and love these words is to be a very rare and precious thing before the Lord of Hosts.
Enoch:

XLV. The Lot of the Apostates: the New Heaven and the New Earth.

And this is the second Parable concerning those who deny the name of the dwelling of the holy ones and the Lord of Spirits.
And into the heaven they shall not ascend,
And on the earth they shall not come:
Such shall be the lot of the sinners
Who have denied the name of the Lord of Spirits,
Who are thus preserved for the day of suffering and tribulation.
On that day Mine Elect One shall sit on the throne of glory
And shall try their works,
And their places of rest shall be innumerable.
And their souls shall grow strong within them when they see Mine Elect Ones,
And those who have called upon My glorious name:
Then will I cause Mine Elect One to dwell among them.
And I will transform the heaven and make it an eternal blessing and light
And I will transform the earth and make it a blessing:
And I will cause Mine Elect Ones to dwell upon it:
But the sinners and evil-doers shall not set foot thereon.
For I have provided and satisfied with peace My righteous ones
And have caused them to dwell before Me:
But for the sinners there is judgment impending with Me,
So that I shall destroy them from the face of the earth.




136



XLVI. The Head of Days and the Son of Man.

And there I saw One who had a head of days,
And His head was white like wool,
And with Him was another being whose countenance had the appearance of a man,
And his face was full of graciousness, like one of the holy angels.
And I asked the angel who went with me and showed me all the hidden things, concerning that
Son of Man, who he was, and whence he was, (and)
why he went with the Head of Days?
And he answered and said unto me:
This is the son of Man who hath righteousness,
With whom dwelleth righteousness,
And who revealeth all the treasures of that which is hidden,
Because the Lord of Spirits hath chosen him,
And whose lot hath the pre-eminence before the Lord of Spirits in uprightness forever.
And this Son of Man whom thou hast seen
Shall raise up the kings and the mighty from their seats,
[And the strong from their thrones]
And shall loosen the reins of the strong,
And break the teeth of the sinners.
[And he shall put down the kings from their thrones and kingdoms]
Because they do not extol and praise Him,
Nor humbly acknowledge whence the kingdom was bestowed upon them.
And he shall put down the countenance of the strong,
And shall fill them with shame.
And darkness shall be their dwelling,
And worms shall be their bed,
And they shall have no hope of rising from their beds,
Because they do not extol the name of the Lord of Spirits.
And these are they who judge the stars of heaven,
[And raise their hands against the Most High],
And tread upon the earth and dwell upon it.
And all their deeds manifest unrighteousness,
And their power rests upon their riches,
And their faith is in the gods which they have made with their hands,
And they deny the name of the Lord of Spirits,
And they persecute the houses of His congregations,
And the faithful who hang upon the name of the Lord of Spirits.








The Adoption

Like a rib taken from his side
the words of the prophets his bride
ever faithful and standing by
together they multiply
now the Bible is my mother
and my father is never far away
he sends his son to visit
and when he leaves some part of him stays
my faith is killing me
that I might live in the light
with my new parents and my big brother
standing by my side
and you know those who are adopted into this family
will never ever die
for they worship the spirit of the words
and the same is the father of life















138











Mansions and Prisons

The only true religion is the one inside of you
spirituality has to do with the self control of thought
and we tune out all the voices we hear, inside and out,
except the ones we decide to keep for our own
























139









Glory and Power

With love in his heart
and grace in his eyes
the mustard seed said unto the mountain
stand or fall
and many died
for the people that dwelled therein
possessed hearts of stone
and those that belonged to the summit thereof
possessed hearts frozen and cold
for they craved that which belongs to the Lord




















140







The Nots

I read,
'Woe unto those who say they are Jews and are not'
and I thought,
Woe unto those who say they are Christian and are not
those who believe in Jesus
surely know what he taught
but the anti-Christs are too busy
setting up their stumbling blocks
you know,
things like Idols, Images, Pagan rituals, and False gods
things like Lent, Easter, and Santa Claus
pictures and statues of things like Mary
and the 'holy' cross
and all kinds of things that cannot talk
but who and/or what is God's rock
the Holy Spirit dwells within those who knock
and submit themselves to the word of God
and many say they are Christian
and are not













141







I Wonder

It is the will of God and can you see
that flesh is a gift but it ain’t free
we have to work
because we all have to eat
but here lately the rich
have become hard to feed
yet we all make a living
from the things that we need
sometimes I feel like somebody's choking me
and the rich get richer
and the poor get poorer
and I guess that's the way it has to be
and the rich are miserable
because they possess their reward
and I wonder what that means
we all lay down to sleep
still, I wonder if we'll ever be free















142












The Poisoned

Trees of naked thought
and one was disobedience

























143










My Will

Ashes to ashes dust to dust and the meek shall inherit the earth
and testament
If your will is God's will I'll see you there
until then, my good friends, take care
