.:: Rose Colored Stained Glass Windows ::.


Another sleepy Sunday, safe within the walls
Outside a dying world in desperation calls
But no-one hears the cries, or knows what they're about
The doors are locked within, or is it from, without...

Chorus:


Looking through rose colored stained glass windows
Never allowing the world to come in
Seeing no evil and feeling no pain
Making the light as it comes from within, so dim...


Out on the doorstep lay the masses in decay
Ignore them long enough, maybe they'll go away
When you think you have so much, you have so much to lose
You think you have no lack, but you're really destitute


[Chorus]

    General CommentDid JOC redo this song? Or is it out of place?
    I know that PETRA had this on an album in the mid-eighties.

    General CommentOne of the seven churches described in Revelation. A church with no faith, no care about reaching out to people

    General CommentThis is an old Petra song, covered by Jars of Clay for the "Never Say Dinosaur" tribute album which came out in 1996. This version is notably different from the original, due to the programmed drums, the non-standard time signature used during the intro and guitar solo, and the overall more tense feeling. I believe it also marks the first time that Matt Odmark played an electric guitar on a Jars of Clay studio recording (the band's self-titled album was almost exclusively acoustic).
