Track Name: Caranoid
V1
A Child cup yellow star beam, can you dig it?
Streaming and beaming, beaming and flying by.
Can I know you? Can we go?
To square box soft walled room. Singing the song and you can too.
Kneel on the ground Jesus Loves you. Kneel in the sky Jesus loves you

V2
Black hole wheel turns; pistols shuffle lives heart beat
Click and turn, click and turn; clicking clacking, clicking clacking
Aren’t you glad you came? Would you do it again?
To sing in the silver cylinder black haired woman.

Chorus:
Jesus Christos e el Nino
Ninety Mile High,
I'm a Caranoid (Glory Glory Glory Holy)

V3
Down left, up right, not peace but a sword
Up right, down left, Die Hiere is lief vir jou
(Afrikaans for The Lord Loves You)
Wipe Away the tears so you can see what is ahead
Monitor the monitors so you can read the vital stats
Pulse rate, breathing, temperature and energy
But all this will pass if you run out of gas
Here is the place fuel can be found...Kneel on the ground!

Chorus

OUTRO
Mukti deliah Yeshu naam, shanti deliah Yeshu naam
Mukti deliah Yeshu naam, shanti deliah Yeshu naam
(Hindi for Greetings to you in Jesus name, Salvation comes in Jesus name)
Track Name: Finger Of God
Planning, Scheming, Yielding, Learning
“Hit the ground and take cover,
Put your hand behind your head!”
You’ve just seen the Finger of God

...and I know, oh yea, It’s a funky situation,
oh my - What is this Salvation?

But, I know it’s real and hard sometimes.
Adjusting the Machine
...Still I know, I’m more than a creation
A real renovation: sweet salvation!!!

I...I...I have bona fide sensations
Like seeing the stars in the sky or hearing the music in my mind.
Like feeling love for the very first time or dancing, dancing, dancing.
Track Name: Addictions
Addictions
And the nights get longer And the fight is harder And to wander around Looking for air to breathe
Air gets harder
And the night is longer And it’s hard to breathe
Track Name: April 2008
Mother do you see the baby, taste the cup of life
But your death,
it broke my heart, but my legs are fine so I will carry on.
My soul and spirit pours out like wine. My heart, it feels like it stops.

So, I look at my watch to keep the time
Tell me is it eternity, I don’t know

Sometimes I get happy spasms
Other times I get angry,
Home, family and others I cannot think But most of all I enjoy my friends
The purpose of life and reasons I don’t know
But this I know, the spirit is our hope.
changed from... (but a friend told me the spirit is the pope.)
Track Name: Christina
Christina, resist it
You want somebody to love When you want somebody to love
Resist, resist it Stop the tendency Stop the hungering
Christopher, resist it
You want somebody to love
I know you need somebody to love
Resist, resist it Stop the tendency Stop the hungering
Resist it, resist it Stop the tendency Stop the hungering

Another grin on her face Another notch on the bed
Happy and content they fell
Happy and content they feel for now
Every session, every time Passing down the hatchet
Cut a little, cut a little
It’s just a little, it’s just a little
This wretched cycle will end I hope, that this all ends

Christina, resist it
You have somebody to love Resist, resist it
Your don’t have to do it again Christopher, resist it
1, 2, 3, 4
Resist it, resist it
Stop the tendency
Every session, every time Passing down the hatchet
Another stupid grin on his face Another score on the bed
Tired and old they feel Tired and old as it is...
Christina, resist it
You have somebody to love Resist, resist it
Your don’t have to do it again Christopher, resist it
1, 2, 3, 4
Resist it, resist it
Stop the tendency

When I saw her, I thought it was you.
She was standing across, across the room.

Pre-chorus
You are my all things. My all things is you.

If I put body on you, would you hold it against me? (bk voxs: Body)

Verse 2
I bought her a drink, gave her a dance,
I gave her a lift and she gave me a ride.

I am weak but you are strong Every little breathe I take
Makes me want to love you more

Lay me down to sleep
I am weak and you are strong
Next time won’t you sing with me?

Alt ending for the live version...
You’ve been weighed, you’ve been measured and you’re found wanting.
Repent and receive forgivness of your sins.

*“This is what these words mean:
• Mene: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end.
• Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.
• Peres: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.”

From the NIV Bible, Daniel 5:25-28
