Hmmm..., this one, again, digging around for stuff, sure no ones gonna want to hear... -- during the period of my desert while plenty of frustration, dissapointment, and not sure if anger (since does absolutely nothing...) this came out. Many from that period, I could not write fast enough, almost couldn't read it... minutes and sang to the walls...

Keep in mind, as said by someone else here..., to be sure, not "christian enough" for christians, yet may say "God" to many times for the secular Smile ... oh well... DerUgoAgain... Smile

-- As an after thought for those who read these and "care" ? ... I've always said, "me" is a combination of Job, Jonah and Peter... I don't tolerate the krappey life or a Box with no doors, and shaken like a Paint Can Mixer... I never asked to be here (as far as I know)... so as far as "inherited debt" well, that is krappe. So remember folks prior to kicking the bucket, take out a big mortgage and have your kids cosign for it... --anyway. What is the alternative? Liberal Atheism? -- That would be yet another level of delusional hell on earth to endure Smile Just, say'in... [ And, I am Okay now... hmmm, hard to argue with Reality... however it may suck Wink I guess that's why He seeks us... what a mystery... ]

-- Hear it with heavy, over played drum kit amped via Marshall stack.. angry, loud, yet crystal clear acoustics ... and maybe like 6 soulful backup singers, thoroughly pissed off from their last as-whole too.

Lyrics: 

G s-g
I’m not a stranger
Dm s: a-f
In the hands of my maker
C s: f-e
My body bent and broken
G s-d G
From the life He gave

G [Go up pitch then down]
Every mourning I wake up [no, not a typo]
Dm
To plead my life
C
Psalm Seventy-three, me and …
G G (G-Jangly w/sus)
Jesus Christ

G
Every mourning I wake up
Dm
To pray for peace
C
Holy – men say … I should be grateful
G G
To Jesus Christ

[CHORUS]
G s-d
I keep my faith
G9-7 s-f
I keep my faith
G6-4 s-e
I keep my faith
G (G-Jangly) s-d
I keep my love

G
He is He, who has the seven
Dm
Spirits of God
C
Your love lies sleeping, while in
G G
His, you, thrive

G
Every mourning I wake up
Dm
To bleed my life
C
Holy – men say … I should be grateful
G G
To Jesus Christ

G
Every mourning I wake up
Dm
I beg with the Lord
C
Holy – men tell me, how it’s done
G G
And to wait my turn

[CHORUS]

G
Every mourning I wake up
Dm
I pray for the ruptured church
C
Holy – men can’t say really
G G
What that’s worth

G
Job asked why
Dm
Was given no answer
C
Jonah fled away
G G
But only for a time

G
Every mourning I wake up
Dm
From morphine doctrine
C
Killing His Church
G G
Breaking souls, But, I …

[CHORUS]

This is really catchy - that chorus is a 'sing along'. Something of the red hot chilli peppers here. Loving those sus chords too. This has the potential to be really big as in anthem!

"Every mourning I wake up" very interesting double meaning there. I don't think a person should were about whether they are too religious or not religious enough. Do no harm and to thine own self be true is what I say. This definitely feels true to you, and that makes it awesome. And I like the depth of the lyrics.

Smile yes..., no, it was literal... Hahhh... then I realized folks may hear it as "morning"... nope, the other. [so put the nottatypo note]

And, thank you... the comments are appreciated!

Very interesting title and wordplay with mourning. I read your liner notes and also find it interesting that you wrote 'angry, loud, yet crystal clear acoustics.' Makes sense though, for the lyrics tinged with anger. That's a side we haven't heard yet, I don't think. At least I haven't heard it. The soulful backup singers - yes, I can definitely hear them! They go well with the melody you've got. You've got quite the song here. Smile
