Lyrics

Shadow Lands

Written By: Charles James Harding Conrad II

Hold me through these shadow lands
Hold me help me understand

You are my reality
I wrestle with desire
Nothing of this world
Can quench the Spirit’s fire
You have created me to long for Heaven’s home
Father guide my steps as I approach Your throne

I stumble through this life
How I long to be with You
Beyond these shadow lands
Where Your light shines pure truth
Scriptures clearly show that truth will be my guide
Heaven’s endless joys are on the other side

Hold me I stumble as I run
Hold me as I follow the Son

A new day with You I reach with open hands
A new day with You beyond these shadow lands

Beautiful Mind

Written By: Charles James Harding Conrad II

Oh oh oh oh
beautiful mind
sha la la la
You're beautiful

Destroyer and creator of the universes
Painting galaxies in haiku verses
Playing chess with Fibonacci's law inverted
World hunger, cancer, death are all averted

I am the matrix, I know kung fu
Mind melting spoons making silver fondue
ESP, telepathy abiogenetic
Saving lost souls it's almost prophetic

chorus
Oh oh oh oh
Beautiful mind sha la la la
Beautiful m-i-i-i-nd
Beautiful mind woo-hoo-hoo
Your beautiful

Head honcho, big cheese, your on top
Look at you in charge of the comic book shop
You know you can manage it like no one else
But why's something missing off the aisle shelf?

Samurai

Written By: Charles James Harding Conrad II

When he walks when he talks he is a samurai
When he eats when he sleeps he is a samurai
When he breathes or blinks an eye he is a samurai
‘Til the day he dies he is a samurai

He gave an oath to serve and protect his master
His blade has saved many dynasties from disaster
He was head of the house but his son grew up on his own
His wife wished him dead for always leaving her alone

Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
It’s a life worth fighting for living the art of war
It’s a life worth dying for living the art of war

Tonight his master’s house can sleep without a care
There's a thief on the roof, but he’s already prepared
A rice paper wall is slit in the clear moonlight
There’s a frog in the pond to watch his enemy die

Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer
It’s a life worth fighting for living the art of war
It’s a life worth dying for living the art of war
It's the truth that really kills a man
Cuts much deeper than a weapon can
He said, "I’m living the art of war"

He is one with his mind his sword his code and his passion
Ready to kill no time left for a distraction
When he caught the thief he could tell he’d already won
But his mind went blank and his whole world came undone
His mind went blank and his whole world came undone
Yeah his mind went blank when he saw the thief was his son

Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer
Was this a life worth fighting for living the art of war
Was this a life worth dying for living the art of war
It's the truth that really kills a man
Cuts much deeper than a weapon can
He said, "I’m living the art of war"

Faith

Written By: C. James Conrad

Faith is a bird at rest on a limb;
She pays no mind and sings
should the branch break under her weight;
It won’t bring her down she has wings

Like radar in the fog;
Before the break of dawn
She’s always looking for the good it seems;
When it’s time to sing her song

CHORUS
She sings
Come on, come on, wake up and see
Oh what a day today could be
Walk by faith not by sight
It’ll be alright

Below her the creature known as Fear
Slithers up to do her wrong
Above her the clouds of Despair turn black;
What gives her strength to carry on?

I asked, Can I have faith like yours?
She said, Know who’s in control
Who feeds the birds of the air?
Faith can bring heaven to your soul.

Chorus

BRIDGE
God’s grace paves the way
Take a step of faith

Chorus

It’ll be alright; It’ll be alright
Yeah everything's gonna be alright
