Arisen

1st Verse:
Go ahead grab a pen and paper
Write this down and save it for later
We often times fail to see the simplicity
That is existing within our very surroundings

Call it what you want a lack of knowledge
Or being taught incorrectly from K through college
We’ve been numb to the elevation of wrong
Letting it slip through the cracks for far too long

Insensitive to problems that still remain
Since many are far too focused on personal gain
We’re not meant to feel ashamed or be lame
However the actions we’ve taken need to be tamed

There’s a purpose we’re all alive and each unique
If you feel down now it doesn’t mean you won’t peak
There’s a calling card within in each of our minds
Sometimes it just takes a little time

Where do you turn to in crucial moments
Has improvement ever happened, would you even notice

Hook:
Let the trumpets sound, alert the crowds
That’s right, He is arisen now
Let the trumpets sound, alert the crowds
That’s right, He’s here for you now

2nd Verse:
Knock Knock, who’s there… it’s Jesus
Believe it or not He actually needs us
This is for real it’s not a joke
We need to spread His love to more folks

The message is clear as it has always appeared
Ignore the alterations that took place over the years
A relationship isn’t a one way street
We need to do our part to fulfill the needs

There’s one path that leads to satisfaction
And it may not be the most pleasurable plan
But you’ll be suited for a greater experience
It’ll help you overcome any and all situations

So with all the nonsense that comes in our life
The way and the truth will get us through the strife
Think about how words effect your personality
Now imagine the author being pleased with your mentality

It isn’t enough to say we believe
If nothing really changes, did we honestly receive
There’s a reason faith can live on and be seen
It’s through actions like the sacrifice on Calvary

Hook:
Let the trumpets sound, alert the crowds
That’s right, He is arisen now
Let the trumpets sound, alert the crowds
That’s right, He’s here for you now

3rd Verse:
Our journey isn’t a simplistic mission
Many people want it to be easy, they keep wishin’
No algorithm can solve the problems we face
Only the gift from God which is His grace

As we try to improve with each given task
We need to remember the right questions to ask
There’s solace in learning the proper facts
So don’t hesitate to pursue salvation’s tracks

In order to open the treasure you need the key
But you can’t find it if you don’t believe
As we lose loved ones joy can be hard to see
So allow yourself the ability to handle grief

It doesn’t matter who you were or where you’ve been
His arms are open wide for you to come in
Not many can fathom a gift being given
Despite the action having already happened

If you feel lost now you may fear death
Since you aren’t certain what comes in the end
The message has already been depicted
The choice is yours on how your eternity is scripted

Good Book

Intro:
Often times I get asked how can I not do this or that
Why did I choose to do this or that
How or why, why or how
Well here’s a little snippet

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

1st Verse:
Nurture over nature or nature over nurture
The evils are circling around us like vultures
Trying to slip in under the guise of cultures
Many of us don’t realize we’re in torture

All the depression they say that we’re sick
As if there is no other option
I’m sorry that isn’t how life goes
We’re all meant to have some hope

Can’t you see society is on a slippery slope
You offer a little faith and they say nope
Trying to manipulate what it is we feel
Look at the epidemic of sex appeal

It’s like the lottery, trying to find shine
Where has it all gone, this isn’t fine
There’s more questions than answers
But the answers reside in the good word

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

2nd Verse:
People want to be near me or fear me
I appreciate your perspective honestly
But I can’t even define myself accurately
There’s not one of us that lives perfectly

I always try to do what is right
That doesn’t mean that I’m free from blight
Mistakes have been made over the course of life
It’s just the process of learning what to be like

Despite having a rock solid blueprint
There are times when one falls to temptation
Every situation presents a radically different decision
But are we making the ones we can live with

Precision comes in our creation
Our free will is what brings affliction
The choices give us various directions
But real forgiveness comes from one foundation

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

3rd Verse:
They say the mirror holds the best reflection
Yet our thoughts possess the important projection
What it is we think effects our daily regimen
And how we feel determines our actions

If iron sharpens iron then why berate
Our tongue like a sword cuts deeply with hate
Edification and support bring forth fate
Positivity and kindness being spread is always great

Don’t get it twisted love remains
Despite humanity’s efforts to use it in vain
Love is something that can never be slain
So feel free to hop aboard the proper train

We’re destined to succeed because Christ made us free
God is real and still many refuse to believe
Sometimes you need to believe in order to see
There is proof out there for you to receive

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

Wondering what exactly that sequence of posts was about? Feel free to take a listen to the words in motion of the entire mini project that happened to be a compilation of ideas to get me back into recording. Thanks for your time!
