Track Name: The Golden Girl Of The Golden West -2019
she's a pistol packin' mama and a bleach blond surfer queen
a highfalutin' filly and an adolescent's fling
she was born at Sutter's Mill and killed up on the silver screen
she opens up her golden gate and offers us a dream

na na na na na na...

she's a powder snow bunny and a painted desert rat
an avocado model in a boysenberry hat
she's our buffed and spangled banner, she's our sedentary fat
she's hungry cold and homeless, and she's luxury's lap

chorus
she's the golden girl of the golden west
a lipo-sucking diva with a saline chest
she's the golden girl of the golden west
a fashion island floozy in a skin-tight dress
she's the golden girl...

one man's blessing and another man's curse
she's an economic engine with her gears thrown in reverse
she's a double beef burger called "the double patty hearse"
she's a Napa Valley vineyard selling toast and liver worse

na na na na na na...

she's a corporation raider on the sports bar beat
a giant dodging forty-niner with two athlete’s feet
she's a warrior and an angel and a ram in heat
she's a drunken clipper captain with a silicon leak

chorus

na na na na na na...

she's a bleeding heart madonna with a big electric chair
an earth shaking quaker with a fundamental flair
there's a method to her madness and a charismatic air
an orthodoxly logic in that presbytery stare

so come all you huddled masses, all you yo-Yosemite sams
make a wish and pitch a penny off the mighty Hoover Dam
yeah and leave it all to beaver and start packin' up the van
take the California aqueduct on down to Disneyland

chorus
Track Name: A Briefing For The Ascent- 2019
Take a burning spear
And the Savior's promise
Ride a horse of air
Through the burning forest
With our Father's faith
And a child's wonder
Down the halls of grace
By His mercy go under
It will seem so sudden
Yes, but through God's will
The season will dream and
Time will stand still (for)
Hearts in waiting
Ascending
Hearts in waiting
Beneath a crimson sea
Is a buried treasure
You will find the key
That unlocks forever
Does it seem so sudden
This sad sweet goodbye?
This is what you have lived for
Now for this you must die
Hearts in waiting
Ascending
Hearts in waiting
Close your eyes
And rest secure
Your soul is safe
Your body sure
He that loves you
Is He that keeps
The One that guards you
Never slumbers, never sleeps
Take the greatest care
To hold onto your vision
Climb the golden stair
To the courts of Heaven
It will seem so sudden
But you will laugh as you run
You will wash in the river
You will shine in the Son
Hearts in waiting
Ascending
Hearts in waiting
Ascending. . .
Track Name: Stone Away- 2019
Just as I was leaving
Just as I stopped feeling
Just as I was dying
and every word denying
I felt the wound
saw the empty room,
'Cos you had flown away
and just when I was sleeping
and just as I stopped breathing
and just when I'd grown colder
and thought that it was over
felt kingdom come
blood on my tongue
rolls the stone away
Now you fall like a shadow I cannot touch
And faith is half the battle, I don't have much
(so roll the stone away, roll the stone away)
Just as worlds were ending
and just when I was winning
and just as the door was closing
and just as my hand was folding
the whole earth shakes
the stronghold breaks
so you can fly away
Now you fall like a shadow I cannot touch
And faith itself is half the battle, I don't have much
(so roll the stone away, roll the stone away)
Well, it's good to know
you own my soul
and you have flown away
So how can I deny you
when I've walked beside you
Well I'm just a coward crawling
and I am an angel falling
Oh carry me
and bury me
then roll the stone away
Now you fall like a shadow I cannot touch
And faith is half the battle, I don't have much
(so roll the stone away, roll the stone away)
Track Name: Be That As It May
Let the moonlight pour into the room,
Hushed voices carry ’cross the pond
I may hear the knock
On the door behind me, locked
Where inside I am a child still hard at play
Be that as it may

Let the boats set sail across the page,
Weather the storms, find a peaceful shore
I’ll live with the taps
On the window at my back,
The friends I’ve lost, and words I didn’t say
Be that as it may

And through thick walls built out of mist
I see the girl I never kissed
Every open door I ever missed
And the many times I lost my way
Be that as it may

Let the ink flow like a river’s course,
Through the vale of death to a serene sea
Gentle as a prayer,
Ferocious as a dare
To run the race on hobbled feet of clay
Be that as it may
Be that as it may
Be that as it may
Be that as it may
Track Name: He Is Not Here (He Is Risen)
He no longer wears
The shroud of death
Or the cloak of chains
In which he once dressed
The heart which failed
Beats in His chest

He is not here
He is not here
He is not here
He is risen

He no longer lifts
His thorn-crowned head
Towards an empty sky
With forsaken dread
Now that it’s finished
And the angel said

He is not here
He is not here
He is not here
He is risen

Alleluia
Alleluia….

He no longer bleeds
Or cries out in vain
He’s no longer broken
Or bears the shame
Come to the tomb
Rejoice! Proclaim!

He is not here
He is not here
He is not here
He has risen

He is not here
He is not here
He is not here
He is risen
He’s risen
He’s risen
Track Name: Boomtown- 2019
Skeletons are moving under ground
There are angels on the sly
God is busy turning a big wheel 'round and 'round
Camels trudge across the desert sand
with their humps of holy water
They're looking for a home in the needle's eye
See them fly
And we go 'round in Boomtown
('round and 'round in Boomtown)
(but we don't cry in Boomtown)
(live and die in Boomtown)
Up and down
High rises reflect a gleaming spire
It's another faithless Sunday
God's still busy turning the big wheel
'round and 'round
chorus
The fire fell here a long time ago
but the glory could not last
We still wear our veils to the dark afterglow
and pray for some shadow of the past
for a star leading home
above the Savings and Loan
Skeletons are moving under ground
(ghosts and angels on the sly)
God is busy turning a big wheel
