Is it true today that when people pray
Cloudless skies will break
Kings and queens will shake
Yes it's true and I believe it
I'm living for you

Is it true today that when people pray
We'll see dead men rise
And the blind set free
Yes it's true and I believe it
I'm living for you

I'm gonna be a history maker in this land
I'm gonna be a speaker of truth to all mankind
I'm gonna stand, I'm gonna run
Into your arms, into your arms again
Into your arms, into your arms again

Well it's true today that when people stand
With the fire of God, and the truth in hand
We'll see miracles, we'll see angels sing
We'll see broken hearts making history
Yes it's true and I believe it
We're living for you

    General Comment"Is it true today that when people pray

    No, the ignorance of the clouds will glow greater and wider than before, and all the royals will do is laugh at your pitiful existence.

    Your truth is not my truth. Your opinion matters not to me. In the end, we will all be buried, rotting, in this world full of hatred, pain, and death.

    So how will your god help you? Armaggedon will never be upon us. It already is.

    And i'm here making a stand for what i think is right, for what i know is right. Your insecurity will never save you. Your life will be a waste, and you will look back on your death bed and realise what the hell you've done: tried to live up to a deity that promotes Elitism, Racist, and Homophobes, and never achieve that status. You may well preach to your friends about what they have done, but before you judge other people, look in the mirror, and judge yourself. Look at the TV, see the war in Israel, and judge what your faith has done. Look outside your window and judge the destruction of your doctrine.

    But my opinion counts nothing to you, as all you will do is brush me off. An Infidel, the Heretic. But in the end, your judgement counts for nothing.

    Freeedom, Peace, Equality for all

    General CommentThat's heavy, man, but some of it is sadly going to be true in time enough. What is time, for that that is swallowed up into a non-existence? Personally, I do believe in a God who is loving and treats all regardless of others' beliefs of elitism. Whatever people believe about the best getting the best in life, and however true that is, it is merely a reflection on our society. Where the poverty-stricken may rot away as people believe, slowly it consumes the very souls of the deepest believers. And these poverty-stricken are the ones who WANT to make the best of themselves for themselves and others' beliefs in them wound them so far away.

    I, personally, am totally unprejudiced. As a person who has had more than their fair share of painful experiences in time immemorial, I realise that I am a comparitive nobody as regards judging everyone else. Why should I? I don't give a damn about the guys that take the piss out of a "different" me. Besides which, I'm still the same as I was yesterday, the day before, just with a more rounded view on things.

    Every opinion, to me, matters. I give a damn about the ones that decide to speak out. The ones that are depressed, the ones that lack adequate courage to carry on, the suicidal, the fiery eyed utopian dreamers. Tomorrow, the next day, whenever, they're gone. Vaporized into the dreams which nobody could steal, yet everyone kept alive for the fact that they knew they could make a difference. My judgement does count. To me. I could bleat on about that that I stand for, and nobody could care. I enjoy listening to other people. Their beliefs, their dreams, and, more importantly, their morals. I know people that would run me a mile through a hedge to kill me after 200 yards. Nothing's right, but nothing, yet, has changed. This still happens, and, until a beautiful utopia can exist, which then gets swallowed up in the dreams of those who don't want to make right the wrongs of yesterday? I reiterate, I care. Something is coming. The Revalation of St John The Divine talks of many apocalyptical things. He talks of Jesus in this way. "Behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is he who keeps the words in the prophecy of this book." This is about life, flowing, nourishing, cleansing life. If life escapes, it shall be reprovided by a kind and willing God, and, though we don't all believe, anyone can trust in the fact that with the right teachings, those of non-hatred, non-pain, however much is going on in the world, the individual can make the difference.

    I'll continue my thoughts later.

    General Comment(continued..)

    Delirious? are a Christian Rock band, or, as it is known in certain circles, CCM (Christian Contemp.) First of all, I believe the title is an allusion to God. The only one who has changed two billion people's lives to this very day. Now, I'm not personally biasing toward religion, though being religious myself, I'm prepared to see both sides. For example, I'm sure there are people who listen to Delirious? for the music and not for the message (everyone, for example, who doesn't visit this site). The blurs made clear through today's elitist society (for example, the problem of 5% of America containing 95% of the wealth) is a pecuniary problem that has lasted for many years. Something needs to be done about this, and fast. For ever, man and woman alike have judged themselves and each other. The one true judge is God. So his earthly incarnation, Jesus, taught us, he will come again to judge the living and the dead. And I certainly feel that my character is tested with each and every passing day.

    This person, I feel, is looking for a saviour. Away from the ones who are born into who they are, this person is searching for (God's?) strength to find the power to do his work. The arms refer to God's arms, an Earthly God who is willing to accept people into his arms. Reference: Revelation of St John.

    Fantastical dreams. Made true by one common aim. Salvation given by God. And He gives all and takes all justly.

    General CommentFett , I so agree with everything you've said there man!
    This is such a good song for reminding us as Christians of how much God can do in and through each individual one of us, and some of the stuff you've said there so goes wuith that.
    I'll try and remember to pray for that guy as well, if that gives you any consolation - after all, 'nothing is impossible for God'.

    General CommentI love this song! It's so anthemic. It's very stirring and

    Matt, from earlier up the page, you appear to have no hope in this life... so don't be a slave to the things that are causing all the pain, death and misery in this world. Lose your inhibitions and pray to Jesus: He has promised He will meet you if you seek Him. Knock and the door shall be opened to you. The answers you seek so desperately are far simpler and more wonderful and more available than you imagine. Try it, it can't hurt...

    General CommentHeh, it gets me thinking of Acts. Great song, showing how we will triumph over evil with God's power. Or rather, how God will use us to do it. Exciting times ahead.

    General CommentCycovisionary, I'm glad you gave your opinion, I am. I hardly dismiss you as a heretic or whatever word you want to use, and I read everything you said. That being said,

    "Your opinion matters not to me" - at the end of the message you say that one of the bad things about us is that we don't accept the opinions of others... make up your mind, bud.

    "And i'm here making a stand for what i think is right, for what i know is right." - You never mentioned what that even is. All you did was put down what I think is right, what I know is right.

    "Your life will be a waste, and you will look back on your death bed and realise what the hell you've done" - No, I'll look back and realise that I've helped and served people the best that I could. Hopefully I'll go to Heaven, but if not at least I'll have lived a good life.

    "tried to live up to a deity that promotes Elitism, Racist, and Homophobes" - This was the only thing that you said that annoyed me. The thing about people who denounce Christianity like you is that they know almost nothing about its teachings, only the stereotypes. If you come back after having done some serious research (like I have), then I'll respect what you've said in that sentence.

    "You may well preach to your friends about what they have done, but before you judge other people, look in the mirror, and judge yourself" - That's the entire point of the Faith. Some of us are better at it than others, but we're all human. "Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us" man.

    "Look at the TV, see the war in Israel, and judge what your faith has done" - Like I said, some people make mistakes because of extremist beliefs and whatnot. I can't help that as I have NOTHING to do with them and I never will, so please don't judge me based on their actions... you're dabbing into hypocracy a little bit there man.

    "But in the end, your judgement counts for nothing." - Exactly. Only the judgements of one person will count, I believe that as much as anyone else. I try not to judge in my life, like I hope you do.

    Anyway, I'll pray for you, so even though I doubt you'll take comfort in that I hope you'll remember it.


    P.S. how come you came to a religious band's lyric page to give your rant, anyway??
