    Entil'Zha, I'm interested in that song you alluded to. If you don't want to post it, could you PM it to me? Don't worry about me being offended, that doesn't happen too easily.

    And yes...those were very religious songs, but don't portray the same message as ours by any means. Difference is good ;)

    The very words I live by are in my favourite song in the world - Every New Day by Five Iron Frenzy...

    When I was young, the smallest trick of light,
    Could catch my eye,
    Then life was new and every new day,
    I thought that I could fly.
    I believed in what I hoped for,
    And I hoped for things unseen,
    I had wings and dreams could soar,
    I just don't feel like flying anymore.
    When the stars threw down their spears,
    Watered Heaven with their tears,
    Before words were spoken,
    Before eternity.

    (chorus) Dear Father, I need you,
    Your strength my heart to mend.
    I want to fly higher,
    Every new day again.

    When I was small, the furthest I could reach,
    reach, was not so high, then, I thought
    the world was so much smaller, feeling I,
    could fly. Through distant deeps and
    skies, behind infinity, below the face of
    Heaven, he stoops to create me.

    (repeat chorus)

    Man versus himself. Man versus
    machine. Man versus the world.
    mankind versus me. The struggles go
    on, the wisdom I lack, the burdens
    keep piling up on my back. So hard to
    breathe, to take the next step. The
    mountains is high, I wait in the depths.
    Yearning for grace, and hoping for
    peace. Dear God... increase. Healing
    hands of God have mercy on our
    unclean souls once again. Jesus Christ,
    light of the world burning bright
    within our hearts forever. Freedom
    means love without condition, a
    beginning or an end. Here?s my heart,
    let it be forever Your?s, only you can
    make every new day seem so new.

    U2
    Achtung Baby

    "One"

    Is it getting better, or do you feel the same?
    Will it make it easier on you now
    You got someone to blame

    You say
    One love
    One life
    When it's one need in the night
    One love
    We get to share it
    Leaves you baby if you don't care for it

    Did I disappoint you?
    Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
    You act like you never had love
    And you want me to go without

    Well it's...
    Too late
    Tonight
    To drag the past out into the light
    We're one, but we're not the same
    We get to carry each other
    Carry each other
    One

    Have you come here for forgiveness?
    Have you come tor raise the dead?
    Have you come here to play Jesus
    To the lepers in your head?

    Did I ask too much?
    More than a lot
    You gave me nothing, now it's all I got
    We're one, but we're not the same
    Well we hurt each other
    Then we do it again

    You say
    Love is a temple
    Love a higher law
    Love is a temple
    Love the higher law
    You ask me to enter but then you make me crawl
    And I can't be holding on to what you got
    When all you got is hurt

    One love
    One blood
    One life
    You got to do what you should
    One life
    With each other
    Sisters
    Brothers
    One life
    But we're not the same
    We get to carry each other
    Carry each other

    One

    Whoo! Haven't been around lately - lots new here. Hmm, let's see... favorite song... That'd have to be...

    Gone Jackals - Legacy

    December '61.
    my Dad's wages light.
    Still on that salary
    we, all four, could sleep tight.
    Right now if you drank from
    that very same well,
    you'd need a run of luck
    to score a bed in a trick hotel.

    Is this the legacy of
    too much for too few that I see?
    The kind of legacy that's
    tossin' some good men to their knees.

    The "Great Society's"
    maligned concrete cage
    sits dead and vacant now -
    at least it kept out rain.
    With all those corners cut
    the cracks grow wide and near.
    I heard some cash was saved
    but where it's gone ain't clear..

    Who goes down next I don't know.
    I don't know nothin' anymore.
    Tomorrow's legacy that's
    layin' in state awaits reprieve.

    I always thought that when a man goes down
    you do your best to pick him up.
    But how can the milk of kindness trickle down
    when it's syphoned off and cheats the cup?

    -------------

    I also love Rammstein; however, AT60 seems to have beaten me to posting theirs (unless I post Engel...)

    OK, here it is then.

    Iced Earth

    Disciples of the Lie

    You abuse and you victimize
    But you're dignified, so you justify
    It's in your eyes where deception lies
    So you criticize with cruel eyes
    Father in black, black as sin
    Pure hypocrisy to no end
    Condemnning me and my fellow man
    I live my life among the damned

    I've gotta do as you say, not as you do
    You're a man of the cloth, I'm comin' for you
    You say you can save me, cleanse me of my sin
    A holy predator, the wolf in sheepskin
    Disciples of the lie

    Breeding fear in your twisted smile
    Pedophile, in denial
    I taste revenge when I think of you
    A life of hell you put me through
    When I find you I'll take youout
    No remorse, you're going down
    You see satisfaction in my eyes
    I vindicate, now you die

    I've gotta do as you say, not as you do
    You're a man of the cloth, I'm comin' for you
    You say you can save me, cleanse me of my sin
    A holy predator, the wolf in sheepskin
    Disciples of the lie

    The blackness inside overwhelms me
    The pain engulfs and turns to rage in me
    Trapped so deep in my mental hell
    Release the demons, set me free

    I've gotta do as you say, not as you do
    You're a man of the cloth, I'm comin' for you
    You say you can save me, cleanse me of my sin
    A holy predator, the wolf in sheepskin

    Wow, actually that does sound like a good song. I'm sorry to say, but there are people in the ministry who are like that.

    "The greatest single cause of Atheism in the world today is Christians."

    Wow...you have no idea how much the truth in that song weighs down my spirit and deeply saddens me...wow...

    I don't know if this would matter to anyone else, but I feel I have to say it. I apologize so deeply for the things some people who claim to be followers of Christ are responsible of. It tears up my heart and soul to the deepest extent. I wish there was something I could do to change it, but all I can do is continue to live my life as an example of the One who blessed me with it, and hope that you will take what you see in me to overshadow the atrocities others of my faith are responsible for.

    To complete Ryan's (IZird's) quote:

    The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, and walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

    Which leads into this song:

    What If I Stumble? ~ dc Talk

    Is this one for the people?
    Is this one for the Lord?
    Or do I simply serenade for things I must afford
    You can jumble them together
    My conflict still remains
    For holiness is callin
    In the midst of courting fame

    Cause I see the trust in their eyes
    Though the sky is faling
    They need Your love in their life
    Compromise is calling

    What if I stumble?
    What if I fall?
    What if I lose my step and make fools of us all?
    Will the love continue
    When the walk becomes a crawl?
    What if I stumble?
    And what if I fall?

    What if I stumble, what if I fall
    You never turn in the heat of it all
    What if I stumble, what if I fall

    Father please forgive me
    For I cannot compose
    The fear that lives within me
    Or the rate at which it grows
    If struggle as a purpose
    On the narrow road You've carved
    Why do I dread my trespasses
    Will leave a deadly scar?

    Do they see the fear in my eyes?
    Are they so revealing?
    This time I cannot disguise
    All the doubt I'm feeling

    Chorus

    Everyone's got to crawl when you know that
    Your back's against the wall, it's about to fall
    Everyone's got to crawl when you know that
    Yeah...

    I hear You whispering my name
    You say
    My love for you will never change
    Never change

    Chorus

    What if I stumble, what if I fall
    You never turn in the heat of it all
    What if I stumble, what if I fall
    You are my comfort, and my God

    Is this one for the people, is this one for the Lord?


    I love y'all very much....I hope you know that....I don't care if I've known you for three years, or never met you before in my entire life....I really do....

    Here is a favorite of mine

    'Only time' by Enya

    Who can say
    where the road goes
    where the day flows
    - only time
    And who can say
    if your love grows
    as your heart chose
    - only time

    Who can say
    why your heart sighs
    as your love flies
    - only time
    And who can say
    why your heart cries
    when your love lies
    - only time

    Who can say
    when the roads meet
    that love might be
    in your heart
    And who can say
    when the day sleeps
    if the night keeps
    all your heart

    Night keeps all your heart

    Who can say
    if your love grows
    as your heart chose
    - only time
    And who can say
    where the road goes
    where the day flows
    - only time

    Who knows - only time
    Who knows - only time

    From Iced Earth again, a cover of the Spawn character


    A Question of Heaven

    The time is close now, the end is near
    My walk through the valley, trails of fear
    I feel empty, my penance overdue,
    I guess it's too late now to be with you
    I'm extremely frightened of what will surely be
    I sold myself, the death of me
    I know you can't forgive me I know I'm on my own,
    I've betrayed you I walk alone

    What exactly is the meaning of this
    Just pawns in your twisted game
    Severe pain for the lie I'm livin'
    For a love I never could betray

    Question me not say the lord unto thee
    You have chosen your own fate and your own destiny
    Denied of this life is what you are to be
    You have chosen your own fate and your own destiny

    Lord I pound my fists at you
    Won't you just let me die
    Would I not suffer enough
    No inner peace no after life

    Question me not say the lord unto thee
    You have chosen your own fate and your own destiny
    Denied of this life is what you are to be
    You have chosen your own fate and your own destiny

    I did what I thought was right
    All for the love of my life
    I know it's sad but true
    Something is very wrong
    Condemned to suffer so long
    For a love so true

    The question that lies within
    Is so hard to understand
    It still tears at me
    And in my dying breath
    My heart holds no regrets
    I wouldn't change a thing

    My spirit begins to rise into the heavenly skies
    Just to be shunned away by you
    Now all I want is to die, no streets of gold in the sky
    And I wash my hands of you

    Rising to the heavens light
    Just to plea for death
    Just to be denied

    CCM is contemporary Christian music, Primrodo. The reason I'm not too into it is because I like heavier stuff.

    System Of A Down
    Toxicity

    Aerials
    ---------------
    Life is a waterfall,
    We're one in the river,
    And one again after the fall.

    Swimming through the void
    We hear the word,
    We lost ourselves,
    But we find it all?

    Cause we are the ones that want to play,
    Always want to go,
    But you never want to stay,

    And we are the ones that want to chose,
    Always want to play,
    But you never want to lose.

    Aerials, in the sky,
    When you lose small mind,
    You free your life.

    Life is a waterfall,
    We drink from the river,
    Then we turn around and put up our walls.

    Swimming through the void
    We hear the word,
    We lost ourselves,
    But we find it all?

    Cause we are the ones that want to play,
    Always want to go,
    But you never want to stay,

    And we are the ones that want to chose,
    Always want to play,
    But you never want to lose.

    Aerials, in the sky,
    When you lose small mind,
    You free your life.
    Aerials, so up high,
    When you free your eyes,
    Eternal prize.
    Aerials, in the sky,
    When you lose small mind,
    You free your life.
    Aerials, so up high,
    When you free your eyes,
    Eternal prize.

    'As the world falls down' by David Bowie from the movie Labyrinth :)


    There's such a sad love
    Deep in your eyes, a kind of pale jewel
    Open and closed within your eyes
    I'll place the sky within your eyes

    There's such a fooled heart
    Beating so fast in search of new dreams
    A love that will last within your heart
    I'll place the moon within your heart

    CHORUS
    As the pain sweeps through
    Makes no sense for you
    Every thrill has gone
    Wasn't too much fun at all
    But I'll be there for you-oo-oo
    As the world falls down

    Falling
    (As the world) Falling down
    Falling in love

    I'll paint you mornings of gold
    I'll spin you Valentine evenings
    Though we're strangers till now
    We're choosing the path between the stars
    I'll leave my love between the stars

    CHORUS
    As the pain sweeps through
    Makes no sense for you
    Every thrill has gone
    Wasn't too much fun at all
    But I'll be there for you-oo-oo
    As the world falls down

    Falling
    (As the world) Falling down
    Falling
    As the world falls down
    Falling
    Falling
    Falling
    Falling in love
    As the world falls down
    (down) Falling
    Falling
    Falling
    Falling in love
    As the world falls down

    Falling
    Falling
    Falling

    Makes no sense at all
    Makes no sense to fall
    Falling
    As the world falls down
    Falling
    Falling
    Falling in love
    As the world falls down
    (down) Falling
    Falling
    Falling in love
    Falling in love (love)
    Falling in love
    Falling in love
    Falling in love

    La Vie en Rose
    -----------------------------

    Des yeux qui font baisser les miens
    Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche
    Voilà le portrait sans retouches
    De l'homme auquel j'appartiens
    Quand il me prend dans ses bras
    Il me parle tout bas
    Je vois la vie en rose
    Il me dit des mots d'amour
    Des mots de tous les jours
    Et ça m'fait quelque chose
    Il est entré dans mon coeur
    Une part de bonheur
    Dont je connais la cause
    C'est lui pour moi, moi pour lui, dans la vie
    Il me l'a dit, l'a juré, pour la vie
    Et dès que je l'aperçois
    Alors je sens dans moi,
    Mon coeur qui bat

    Des nuits d'amour à plus finir
    Un grand bonheur qui prend sa place
    Les ennuis, les chagrins s'effacent
    Heureux, heureux à en mourir

    Quand il me prend dans ses bras
    Il me parle tout bas
    Je vois la vie en rose
    Il me dit des mots d'amour
    Des mots de tous les jours
    Et ça m'fait quelque chose
    Il est entré dans mon coeur
    Une part de bonheur
    Dont je connais la cause
    C'est toi pour moi, moi pour toi, dans la vie
    Tu me l'as dit, l'as juré, pour la vie
    Et dès que je t'aperçois
    Alors je sens dans moi
    Mon coeur qui bat
