Red – Pieces (Lyrics+Video)


Once upon a time this was me. This is a shout out to everyone who got a second chance. Not all of us get to be this lucky… Most of us just fade away… lost and forgotten

I’m here again
A thousand miles away from you
A broken mess, just scattered pieces of who I am
I tried so hard
Thought I could do this on my own
I’ve lost so much along the way

Then I’ll see your face
I know I’m finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name
I come to you in pieces
So you can make me whole

I’ve come undone
But you make sense of who I am
Like puzzle pieces in your eye

Then I’ll see your face
I know I’m finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name
I come to you in pieces
So you can make me whole!

I tried so hard! So hard!
I tried so hard!

Then I’ll see your face
I know I’m finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name
I come to you in pieces
So you can make me whole
So you can make me whole

Ghost : He Is (Lyrics Revisited)


We’re standing by the tree of life
in God’s garden of Eden
We’re children born of hallowed love
our names, etched in his heart

He is
El elyon, el shadai, the Lord our righteousness
And he is El Olam,
Adonai,
the lord who sanctifies
He is
Jehovah Jireh
Jehovah sabaoth
He is

we are hiding here behind the trees
All of our shame, in full display
The guidance of the morning star
lead the way to death and decay

He is
El elyon, el shadai, the Lord our righteousness
And he is El Olam,
Adonai,
the lord who sanctifies
He is
Jehovah Jireh
Jehovah sabaoth
He is

While I was attempting to sketch the lyrics, I got nagged by the thought of why God would kick man out of Eden for a frivolous  mistake… and found this excellent article by 

What follows is his article. Read on…. Its a very interesting and informative read

Ghost : He Is (Lyrics Revisited)

Ghost : Bible lyrics revisited


I love music and I cant get any work done without music buzzing in my ears.  I usually stream from you-tube ( its uncomplicated and easy). I would like to listen to christian music, but after a while, it gets boring because there is only so much that you-tube has to offer.  As I strayed from christian themed music, I found myself drawn to melodic death metal. I got tired of that too after a while.

Recently I started listening to some feel good music, but pretty soon realized that the band was Ghost and the music was an affront to christian music. They don’t play games, they make it loud and  clear that they worship Satan ( maybe it’s just an act).

Well anyway the point of this post is that I liked this one song (Bible) by ghost  (because I normally don’t pay attention to the lyrics)  and it often turned up in my playlist (thanks to youtube) .

I don’t know why, but I felt a deep compulsion to make a christian version of the song. I am not sure if it is morally wrong to take the music of a satanic song and Christianize it.

I am really hoping that some one would make a christian version of the song.

In case you are wondering  here is the song from Youtube and my lyrics follows (hopefully someone will replace the original lyrics with what ever)

and now for the song

My version of the lyrics to this song. I call it the “Creation” song

The earth was formless, all desolate and vacant
The raging ocean, shrouded in darkness
The spirit of GOD was moving o’er the water
And GOD commanded the first day and night

Then GOD commanded the waters to sunder
The sky was formed with the crust beneath it
An evening passed and the morn came after
Life was still to be born

Then GOD commanded the earth and the seas
GOD was pleased with what he saw
The earth kindled with all kinds of plants
and the third day was born

Now, who will praise this GOD of creation
Sing a song to my king above
On your knees before his grace
and beat the drum, for life is unfurling

Then GOD appointed the sun, moon and stars
them to rule the day and night
Lights ordained to mark the seasons
and the fourth day was born

“Now let the waters be swarming with life
and let the birds soar above”
He blessed them all to grow in number
and the fifth day was born

On the sixth day GOD commanded
let the earth bear all the fauna
Large and small, tame and wild
and so He made them all

Now, who will praise this GOD of creation
Sing a song to my king above
On your knees before his grace
and beat the drum, for life is unfurling

Now human beings, we will make
making them, to be like himself
He created them, male and female
and he blessed them and he was pleased

Now, they will praise this GOD of creation
Sing a song to our king above
On our knees before his grace
and beat the drum, for the life he gave

he gave us his life

For God loved the world in this way: so much that he would give up his Son, The Only One, so that
everyone who trusts in him shall not be lost, but he shall have eternal life.

Interesting side note: The original song is made by a old Swedish band named Imperiet (The Empire, taken from Star Wars actually), they were basically a far-left pro-communists rock band, a side project to the Swedish punk band Ebba Grön. The biblical imagery is more like a metaphor for the rise and fall of humanity. Basically a loose application of Genesis onto human history.

Scream… if you have something to say….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Children


I miss them dearly.  I would give anything, just to get a glimpse of their images. Sadly my request has been denied. I guess that’s how new age mom’s take revenge on the dad’s.  It’s OK. My Dad used to say, you can’t create a clapping sound by waving one hand. Only a pair of hands can make a clapping sound. His point being, fights are not just caused by one person or their character flaws. There is always more to it than that.

Perhaps I will never meet my children or maybe I will when they are too old.  I can imagine the song “Cats in the cradle” playing in my head as we break into chat

Everything Is Meaningless

“Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher.
“Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.”
What do people gain from all their labors
at which they toil under the sun?
Generations come and generations go,
but the earth remains forever.
The sun rises and the sun sets,
and hurries back to where it rises.
The wind blows to the south and turns to the north;
round and round it goes, ever returning on its course.
All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full.
To the place the streams come from, there they return again.
All things are wearisome, more than one can say.
The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing.
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which one can say, “Look! This is something new”?
It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time.
No one remembers the former generations, and even those yet to come
will not be remembered by those who follow them.

As much as it is depressing I always see a ray of light at the end o the tunnel

“Do not be afraid, because I’ve redeemed you. I’ve called you by name; 
you are mine." Isaiah 43:1
God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak
in the world to shame the strong; 1 Corinthians 1:27-28
You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in
your book. Ps 56:8

Megadeath Vs Arch enemy (Symphony of Destruction)


I accidentally came across the classic song “Symphony of Destruction” on YouTube ( happens to be an all time favorite song for me). Arch enemy has rendition-ed the song in their own guttural growls.

Which do you think sounds better? I liked the original, but after hearing Arch enemy a couple of times, I am confused.

Hear it for yourself

Megadeath

 

Arch Enemy

 

Weight it out… Will Ya….

oh…. Gotta have the lyrics

You take a mortal man
And put him in control
Watch him become a god
Watch people’s heads a’roll
A’roll, a’ roll

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the symphony
Of destruction

Acting like a robot
Its metal brain corrodes
You try to take its pulse
Before the head explodes
Explodes, explodes

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the symphony

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the symphony
Swaying to the symphony
Of destruction

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
A’warring for the heavens
A peaceful man stands tall
Tall, tall

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the symphony

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets
We dance like marionettes
Swaying to the symphony
Swaying to the symphony
Of destruction
