"Clouds" as written by and Derald/hindalong Daugherty....
The blood remains as red
That colours our spirits white
The blood remains as warm
That paints black skies with fire

The Word remains as high
That commands the snake to crawl
The promise ever true
That shatters the venom vile

But clouds are round about You
Clouds are round about You
Clouds are round about You
And shadows veil Your eyes

The love remains as pure
That poisoned seas will ne'er dilute
The love remains aflame
That many waters can not quench

repeat chorus

The Ghost is ever bruised
Who defends me when I fall
The Ghost is ever sure
Who holds tight for precious life
The blood remains as rich
That poor sinners drink like wine
The blood remains as warm
That paints black skies with fire

Repeat chorus

    General CommentI love the drum pattern in this song. I can't think of any other song like it. I also love that when they hit the bridge, the drums disappear completely. It feels like clouds. It swirls around you, and then it's right back into that cool mesmerizing beat.

    I also love how the band recognize both a Creator, and our inability to come to terms with him/her/it.

    We need to get some of the band's newer stuff in here. "Oh How the Mighty Have Fallen" has similar themes, but might even feel more longing than Clouds.
