Buckle

Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.
Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.
Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.
Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.

Commander Keen jumps higher than me.
Doorman keeps conspirers in need,
Scorn had its turn, now I want to see
Forlorn epiphanies don’t understand peace.
Open storehouse, everything is free.
Hopefully we don’t forget mercy.
Ardorous task can’t become the least,
But arborists know there’s hope for a tree.
Order my chore list from what I can see,
Score fifty-four goals in something, that’s glee.
Borrow the best from a spring you can’t reach,
Obtain what’s left when you get where we can’t be.

Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.
Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.
Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.
Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.

I’ma sing to who I’m with,
Messiah King knows what to give,
Flying rings that never miss,
Ironic hope that overcomes sin.
Peace that surpasses understanding,
Love inside that nobody can offend.
Forgiveness is what Jesus gives,
Belief will carry us further than guessing.

Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.
Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.
Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.
Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.

So, let’s buckle up,
Get your chin up, love,
Let’s set our eyes above,
Let go of what we cannot have,
I’m not troubled now,
We’re set well, walking on this path.
It was steep, but why look back?
We’re together still and that’s just that.
We’ll remind us when we forget,
But it’s the attitude that brings us there.
Get the umbrella out, but carry
Less than we need and Jesus will help.

Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.
Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.
Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.
Let’s just keep going,
Keep going along.

Dusty CD Stacks

I’m not gonna tell you what you’re worth
In my eyes, man I’ll never fully understand your hurt.
Checking out your life is like peeking under a skirt,
(Skirp skirp, just for Curt, ha!)
But I can confidently exhortate about my God’s loving heart,
I can talk for days about His perfect, loving arms.
I can wax eloquently on and on ’til I don’t know.
Backhanded arguments envelop overall,
But lack can’t decide our fate; Messiah is God.
There is nothing at all that can make Him trip or fall.
So we shout, “Hallelujah, Hosanna, our King is good!
“Glory to God, all honour, praise above!”

Yeah, skipping tracks,
Like dusty CD stacks.
These dubstep sounds thrash,
But I’m standing back.
Yeah, skipping back
From dusty CD stacks.
May understand lack,
But I’m standing back.
Yeah, rip this beat, hack
It to pieces, I’m glad
It’s dusty CD stacks,
And I’m standing back.

Trumpet sounds broken up and down,
Oscillating vortex turns frowns right upside down,
I’m peddled out of my wares, I’m out of gowns,
Spinning auditory crowns, get caught when your hair is down.
All the people getting out to hit the town,
Not sure what it did to them, but I’m underground.
Tunneled deep beneath it all but now I’m turned around.
Not sure if I found the steeple or if I’m just not allowed
Inside the penance weep, I guess it’s over now.

Yeah, skipping tracks,
Like dusty CD stacks.
These dubstep sounds thrash,
But I’m standing back.
Yeah, skipping back
From dusty CD stacks.
May understand lack,
But I’m standing back.
Yeah, rip this beat, hack
It to pieces, I’m glad
It’s dusty CD stacks,
And I’m standing back.

Putting boots down with echoes,
Punching up through groundlevel stairwells,
Thunder wakes the weary near train track bells.
Letting loose guns won’t overtake hope.
Bulletproof vest only helps you choke.
Stumble at best, if you bet you can cope.
Undertake less and discover your soul.
I’m not a fake, I just grow hammer blows.

Yeah, skipping tracks,
Like dusty CD stacks.
These dubstep sounds thrash,
But I’m standing back.
Yeah, skipping back
From dusty CD stacks.
May understand lack,
But I’m standing back.
Yeah, rip this beat, hack
It to pieces, I’m glad
It’s dusty CD stacks,
And I’m standing back.

Full-fledged

Praising my God
With all that I’ve got.
I keep trying to stop,
Like I’m not good enough.
But God comes along
And helps me to write a song.
So I will praise God
With all that I’ve got.

I’m trading my hate.
Replacing my gait,
Full-facing my state,
I’m embroiled in faith.
Every single day I say,
“God, I need Your help today.”
I’m full-fledged, God stayed,
Made me a super safe place.
My brain feels unsafe like I fail
Every thought, but Jesus prevails.
He fulfills my heart anyway.
Lets me enjoy, partake and pray.

Praising my God
With all that I’ve got.
I keep trying to stop,
Like I’m not good enough.
But God comes along
And helps me to write a song.
So I will praise God
With all that I’ve got.

Suspended in death’s dump,
God togethered all my lumps
Of junk, of always blowing on my trump.
When I was stuck, feeling defeated, drunk,
Endless tar pit downward suck.
Convinced me my whole life was done,
Watch my dreams melt in the sun.
But I have never seen my God run
From any problem or anyone.
So I kept on, I just kept on.
God was there whenever I stunk.

Praising my God
With all that I’ve got.
I keep trying to stop,
Like I’m not good enough.
But God comes along
And helps me to write a song.
So I will praise God
With all that I’ve got.

So I guess I’ma clap, clap, clap,
It wasn’t long ago I coulda never rapped,
I skip along the beach and grab handfuls of sand.
Let it stream on down in sunlight, running from my hands,
Keep the rocks and shells that I found,
Pearls hiding wherever they can.
Starfish lie splayed, high five stamp,
Glittering gold lies where roaring waves crash.

Praising my God
With all that I’ve got.
I keep trying to stop,
Like I’m not good enough.
But God comes along
And helps me to write a song.
So I will praise God
With all that I’ve got.

I can’t build bridges all by myself.
But I can trim hedges and water them well.
I can plant gardens and enjoy their smell.
We’ll all rejoice when we get well
In heaven, one day, where we don’t think about hell,
Where death is just a proverb we no longer tell.

Better together.
Dismembered go-getters,
Regather our inner
Mind and man and seek better.
Resettled in heaven,
Nestled up against Him.
We’re seeking a Saviour,
Never to waver.
He sent Him to save us.

Lemme Lemming Know

I like remembering the old days,
I fight defending my own faith,
But I once intended to make gray
Colours, spent all my thoughts on pain
Now I find nostalgic ways
In my mind, like memories don’t fade.
Wandering along paths, I came
Upon one that was groomed like a highway.

Lemme, lemme know,
Lemme, lemme know
When I can go home,
Lemme, lemme know.
But I don’t wanna go,
No, not even home,
Unless if it’s my Lord
Who opens the door.
Lemme, lemme know.
Lemme, lemme know.

So I take these steps one by one,
Roadsigns point to what’s to come,
But hope like a wave likes to overrun
At the very last minute, never once outdone.
“Don’t ignore the other ones,”
I’ve implored my brothers, run
To restore the loveless, come
Along before you lose your sense of fun.

Lemme, lemme know,
Lemme, lemme know
When I can go home,
Lemme, lemme know.
But I don’t wanna go,
No, not even home,
Unless if it’s my Lord
Who opens the door.
Lemme, lemme know.
Lemme, lemme know.

Real Christianity started with Christ.
I might feel like I’m bland but He imparted brand new life.
Steel inhumanity hardened like ice.
Sealed with this new man in me, I’m restarting this fight.
The right height isn’t set within my sight,
This gripe heist is arrested, filled with light.
I’m sparked inside with a directive in spite
Of everything I collected by walking in the night.

Lemme, lemme know,
Lemme, lemme know
When I can go home,
Lemme, lemme know.
But I don’t wanna go,
No, not even home,
Unless if it’s my Lord
Who opens the door.
Lemme, lemme know.
Lemme, lemme know.

I don’t need to live flat,
Sidle up on me, tulips stand
Beside the school, intact,
I’m never going back.
Panic like a heart attack
Serotonin lacks,
But I’ve got Holy Spirit stance
I’ma believe in His plan.

Lemme, lemme know,
Lemme, lemme know
When I can go home,
Lemme, lemme know.
But I don’t wanna go,
No, not even home,
Unless if it’s my Lord
Who opens the door.
Lemme, lemme know.
Lemme, lemme know.

Evergreen

I wanna be evergreen.
Standing tall on roots so deep.
Like I can’t drop leaves
And I’m never left unseen.
Somebody catch a breeze
And send it on to me.
I wanna be evergreen,
Wanna be clothed righteously.

Evergreen.
Like a tree.
Seasons leave,
Pick up your peace,
Fruitless dreams
Become your grief.
Evergreen,
Your lofted beams
Covering
For shelter seek,
No wilder beasts
Will ever see,
But songbirds speak
From evergreens.

I wanna be evergreen.
Standing tall on roots so deep.
Like I can’t drop leaves
And I’m never left unseen.
Somebody catch a breeze
And send it on to me.
I wanna be evergreen,
Wanna be clothed righteously.

Fruit on my branches,
Take free second chances,
I’m skipping what’s backwards
And sowing in pastures.
Nobody runs faster
Than Jesus, our Master.
I’m loving this weather,
I’m coming untethered.
Gepetto’s unfettered
All the toys who want better.
So I’m writing letters
Into rhymes like they’re rolling papers.

I wanna be evergreen.
Standing tall on roots so deep.
Like I can’t drop leaves
And I’m never left unseen.
Somebody catch a breeze
And send it on to me.
I wanna be evergreen,
Wanna be clothed righteously.

Planted by a stream,
Enlisted to my King,
Standing on a dream
That was given us to sing.
Racked with what I’ve been,
God helps my listening.
Restores my broken knees
And sets me back with Him so free.

If it’s snowing all night,
Then I want the sunlight
To shine all the white
Up like a Lite-Brite,
Kaleidoscope my skies
When I’m waiting out my fright,
Soften edged shadows with a ray of moonlight.
Spell Your Name out in the clouds just in time tonight.

I wanna be evergreen.
Standing tall on roots so deep.
Like I can’t drop leaves
And I’m never left unseen.
Somebody catch a breeze
And send it on to me.
I wanna be evergreen,
Wanna be clothed righteously.

Catch Me

Catch me!
Catch me!
I’m falling,
Sick of all my feelings,
I blew through the ceiling,
Love in me seems so fleeting.
Lord, send help so I don’t feel defeated.

Catch me!
Catch me!
I jumped and I’m falling.
Forget the fear, I’ma praise my holy Father,
Lemme let go, memory limericks’ll bother,
So I wanna let go, invest a little further.
Waiting on these wings, hope You catch me, God, I’m hoping.
That You’ll
Catch me!
Catch me!

Catch me!
Catch me!
If I’m sinking in the waves,
Set my eyes back on Your face,
If I’m almost outta faith,
Jesus, You can help me stay!
If You’re with me, there’s no way
That I’m gonna fall out on You today.

Catch me,
Catch me.
Messiah get me out this free falling.
I’m kinda dead in my mind, real pain,
Keeps on befalling me by the side of the way,
When I’m walking carefree, when I think I’m made,
God, keep my feet from potholes, these pitfalls, tricky pornography,
You know everything that tempts me.

Catch me.
Catch me.
Every time I think I got it,
Jesus, You reach me, yeah, You call out,
Spend a lot of my time falling,
Frustrated that I keep reinterpreting my calling.
Baked outta my mind just so I don’t collide inside with my folly.
Get so angry that I didn’t do better that I forget that I follow.
Landed more black eyes over this than anybody’s given Connor.
McGregor, I mean, hope in me nobody’s mocking.
Guess I’d have it easier if I just quit talking.

Catch me.
Catch me.
I’m rambling, scrambling,
Hunter’s trap is slammed on me,
But I know Jesus is free,
And I know that He put His name on me,
I know my sin won’t become my glee,
But I am tired, and I’m falling so deep,
God, can You hear me calling, please open my heart to weep.
Humble me, please, I mean it, I will not go on pridefully.

Weightless

If I didn’t wake up in crazy town,
I wouldn’t know where I am right now.
Beside my acres, I’ll wait without
Vehicles related to gravel routes.
Remind me, I need to take medicine, oh,
Mary Jane’s green, but my jealousy goes.
Expended hits put a sheen on my brow,
This madness in me, in time it’ll slow.

I’m weightless.
Unscathed and
My faith kept
My heart sane.
I’m weightless.
Unscathed and
My faith kept
My heart sane.

Sifted grit,
Lifted fist;
Gifted stints,
Smith’s cadence.
Hit with mist:
Exceptionalist,
Wit spigot,
Insipid bliss,
Descriptionless,
Performance skits,
Scheduled maintenance.
Wholeheartedly writ,
Exceptional intent.
Skipped granite,
Flipped-out tricks
Kitchen mitts,
Hitched up kit.
And exited.

I’m weightless.
Unscathed and
My faith kept
My heart sane.
I’m weightless.
Unscathed and
My faith kept
My heart sane.

I’m up in space,
I’m like a headcase,
Tall spiral staircase,
Inspired by cranes.
The sunrise looks great,
The moon’s surface is grey,
Satellites keep swinging by to say,
“I once saw a better way.”
But I hold onto flotsam faith,
I call on Messiah’s Name,
I might drift way out some days,
But pull me back, don’t pull away.

I’m weightless.
Unscathed and
My faith kept
My heart sane.
I’m weightless.
Unscathed and
My faith kept
My heart sane.

Mars is not half as dark
As all the stars have said so far.
But lonesome men will soon depart
Planet homes for further sparks.
Embarking gives a brand new chart,
And mapping out what’s new feels smart.

I’m weightless.
Unscathed and
My faith kept
My heart sane.
I’m weightless.
Unscathed and
My faith kept
My heart sane.
