Core

There lies a treasure trove
Hidden within a deep cove
Many don’t know it’s their own
Since it has never been shown

We all have traits within
Dreams that seem thin
The answers that lie beneath
Are waiting to become seen

It may take a little time to find
That’s why we expand our mind
Learning the pathway to navigate
What it is that makes us great

Each unique as we never peak
Don’t sell to yourself that you’re weak
Time moves forward and so do we
Obtain the treasure that sets you free

Forward

We’re now looking ahead to the new days
Remembering the past having the good and bad days
No matter what it is that anyone says
We’ve been through a lot of suspense
The situations we’ve faced and rose above
Lead us to the point where we have that strong love
A bond that cannot be broken
Unshaken in the face of all the doubt that gets spoken
Even though our lives will take different paths
The bond is always something that will continue to last
Our stories knitted together since your beginning
We’ve put together quite the journey of winning
Accomplishments were made and lessons learned
Our light that shines is meant to brighten not burn
As you walk into this next chapter I hope I’ve done right by you
So that you can hold your head high and lead her too

Journey

What is hope without love in the brain
What are friends without memories being made
What is truth without learning along the way
What is life without others involved in your day

Many questions and contradictions on the Earth
Just know your story has some worth
Nothing can compare to who you are
Because nobody else has your scars

No matter what, everyone has issues
Pain is part of the process so don’t let it surprise you
With gain there is loss, but it comes at what cost
The healing is always free with the gift from the cross

Let your experiences speak inspiration
Let joy shine bright in all situations
Let your words reflection compassion
Let kindness flow within all your actions

Casual

We peer out the window
See all the other traffic flow
Life flies by like, “where’d it go”
Once a child, now we’re full grown
Responsibilities stack up
How do you see the cup
Half full or half empty
So much to be distracting
Everyone vying for our thoughts
Questioning everything we bought
They call it research invading our privacy
Seems a little off logically
We watched movies about aliens invading
Never thought my life would be probed by agencies
So many thoughts, so little time
We all now walk a fine line
Nobody can make a gesture
Without feeling a ton of pressure
You see the conspiracy
Then everyone says you’re crazy
What if they just pay attention to the reality
A lot of what is considered real is fake
All for entertainment’s sake
When we witness a rift
We should see it as a gift
Because we need those that are different
The same ol’ same isn’t change
A continuous spiral of doing the wrong things
Gatekeepers trying to keep the truth out
People think it’s nonsense since it isn’t their doubt
Round and round we can go with discussion
The plot twists and ideas of separation
So many try to define differences that aren’t there
Making you numb to the feeling of wanting to care
Everyone wants their wealth to multiply
Yet their thoughts of others only want to divide
Command and conquer is one given tactic
It’s sad that many want to embrace that bracket
All these headlines are a miserable racket
Nothing we should hear if we want cheer
Just because we are in a different year
Doesn’t mean we should accept everything
There is still right and wrong in our living
Laws exist as does violence
So why does protection get met with resistance
Wrongful accusations are becoming persistent
Trying to create a dialogue that isn’t coherent
Yet still many believe everything they see
Instead of taking the time to learn correctly
There are many manipulative strategies in marketing
Hooking the minds of individuals unpleasantly
Think how it is you decide
Where have you gone on this ride
Are you comfortable enough not to hide
Can you allow yourself to express what’s on the inside
What is it that has dominated your focus
Are the proper things getting noticed

Memoirs

Thinking over the memoirs
As I look up into the stars
I feel all the old scars
With hope still shining afar

All the tragedy, insanity, and calamity
With each breath there’s intensity
Draining quickly all my energy
What’s left of me is in jeopardy

What this world does is blasphemous
And the ways of it aren’t at all prestigious
The declarations being made aren’t religious
Because most claiming it are instead venomous

The destruction is of our own doing
Hatred instead of love is accruing
That pressure of us lost in our own things
Is what’s keeping us from the grace we should be experiencing

Late Nights

All of these late nights with thoughts in wonder
As the world around me is falling down under
Innocence has been plundered by the acts of sin
When is it that correct progression can begin

The darkness of these late nights consumes actions
People thinking they can pursue any satisfaction
Nobody wants to admit what drives this insanity
Since many make profit off of all of this calamity

Treachery also happens in the daylight
But nothing can deny the sleepless late nights
The mess of stress influencing the rest
As we awake again the next day to try our best

Constant flow of information out in the air
Plenty to antagonize our mind with so much flair
A sensation to race at a pace that is strenuous
Leaving us tired and at times oblivious

We need to pay attention to the focus of our sight
There is much to consider as we lay down at night
The more we know the sadder it all seems to be
People getting fooled into thinking their life has no meaning

People crave control, but when we sleep our body is in a lull
We’re absent of consciousness, yet it still operates in full
With the choices at hand what is guiding the way
What drives us to make the most of our day

Look in the mirror and analyze the mind
Give yourself a little face to face time
Circumstances come and go in various capacities
Are you honestly aware of the truths in our reality

Sorrows

Hook:
All these feelings dwell
All these emotions swell
I can hardly even tell
What’s bad and what’s well

What will come tomorrow
I hope it’s no longer sorrow

1st Verse:
All these people around the globe
Seeking recognition through likes and follows
What they fail to realize is even those with them
Still feel the sense of emptiness within

I see it all the time those receiving attention
Remaining in a state of indecision
Always craving more than what’s in store
Leaving themselves caught in an infinite chore

Many people there to build up their attitude
Yet they still feel depressed to a high magnitude
It’s all smiles, laughs, and gratitude in sight
But then they admit just how hard it is to fight

It takes a lot of courage to bare it all
And it takes even greater strength to stop the fall

Hook:
All these feelings dwell
All these emotions swell
I can hardly even tell
What’s bad and what’s well

What will come tomorrow
I hope it’s no longer sorrow

2nd Verse:
There are many women victim to addictions
And it isn’t even their volition, but another’s perversion
A sad state of affairs that leaves many in despair
With many feeling too afraid no one cares

We see it all too often harassment and violence
These people don’t deserve to sit in silence
At the same time the root cause is slipping away
As we continue to allow morals to decay

Many think certain approaches are ok
When it really only attaches a bandaid
If you want the cure you need to hit the source
Which for some reason is debated away of course

Look at the masses of survivors reaching out
We need to realize the true evil that needs to be taken down

Hook:
All these feelings dwell
All these emotions swell
I can hardly even tell
What’s bad and what’s well

What will come tomorrow
I hope it’s no longer sorrow

3rd Verse:
It seems there is truly an outbreak
Nobody forgiving themselves for past mistakes
Saturating their current mind state
With elements that they can’t change

What’s done is meant to be learned from
So why are so many limiting their options
Not giving themselves a chance to move forward
Instead deciding failure is what they’ll go toward

It’s heartbreaking knowing so many doubt
Constantly putting themselves down
I wish when I looked out and about
There weren’t so many excruciating frowns

The forecast seems to be cloudy with a chance of rain
As tears are falling while people bind themselves in chains

4th Verse:
People no longer approach marriage with full force
It’s like they find comfort in the notion of divorce
Many broken homes leaving kids stranded
Then they wonder why discipline never landed

Selfish reasons seem to be in every season
All year around there’s relational treason
Cheating has never been so rampant
I don’t know how people can stand it

Thinking they can get away with the act
Or just simply don’t contain any tact
It’s hazardous to the characteristic of trust
Which has always been somewhat of a must

All the dilemmas and problems circling around out there
Is it just me or does anyone else find it strenuous to prepare

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

Valentine

So many caught up in how they feel
The fact is you are truly loved and it’s real
Sadly society isn’t keen to that deal
As they’re caught up in other ideals

I’m not going to slander this holiday
But who’s to say love should be celebrated only one day
It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a significant other
There are plenty of other things to hold dear amongst eachother

Time doesn’t heal all wounds unfortunately at this time
But giving yourself time allows you more opportunities to shine
All the sorrow and sadness that piles up in one’s thoughts
Doesn’t mean your life’s purpose is forever gone

There is someone out there who needs your kindness
Even if it is just the one you see in the mirror’s reflections
Celebrate the moments and memories that gave you happiness always
Because there are more experiences awaiting your presence in all days
