Elijah's Dream

BandChristianAlternative

It's NOT your grandmother's music, and you probably won't sing it on Sunday mornings at church. It's dark, heavy, mostly metal with techno-undertones and a "Pink Floydish" no-holding-back Christian theme. It's gonna ruffle a few feathers, but it needs to be heard. There is hope.

Biography

Lyrics

Damnation

Written By: Elijah's Dream

Damnation
Lyrics by Harrison Starr
© 2008 - Elijah’s Dream

Verse 1
You don’t wanna hear the truth but you must
‘N we are gonna bring it to you or bust
The time is near the ice is dangerously thin
You’re gonna die unless your freed from sin

Verse 2
Don’t sit out there and think that this song’s not for me
Now move it ‘fore you lose it for eternity
The words are here the truth is plain now make your choice
Stand up and represent and let ‘em hear your voice

Chorus
Damnation (the tolling bell)
You better trust in God and tell the Devil he can go to hell
Damnation (the price of sin)
You better get real, real fast, repent and let the Holy Ghost in
Noitanmad! (damnation backwards)

Act Like You Believe

Written By: Elijah's Dream

Act Like You Believe
Lyrics by H. Starr
© 2008- Elijah’s Dream

Verse 1
The preacher on the TV
Says there’s a better way
Believe in something you can’t see
That’s what he calls faith
Now every week your in the church
Dressed in your best lies
Don’t think that smile hides the shame
From God’s all-knowing eyes

Verse 2
You say that He’s omnipotent
Oh there’s nothing He can’t do
But when your world comes crashing down
You go crashing too
Now out there in reality
You’re no different from the rest
You save it for the seventh day
But you still failed the test

Chorus
You better act like you believe
That this isn’t all there is
God is tired of empty prayers and broken promises
Don’t be a candle need to shine much more than that
You better act like you believe
Cuz we ain’t home yet

Said And Done

Written By: Elijah's Dream

Said and Done
Lyrics by H. Starr & D. Swisher
© 2009 - Elijah’s Dream

Verse 1
Where will you go when the party’s over?
What will you do when they’re all gone?
Tears in a smile, it’s only a cover
Who are you lyin’ too when it’s said and done

Verse 2
What have you done to make a difference?
What will you do to make a change?
When will you come to all your senses?
What will it take to rearrange?

Chorus
When it’s said and done
You’re the only one
Who will answer for what you do
When it’s said and done
You’re the only one
Who can make that change for you

A Reflection Of You

Written By: Elijah's Dream

A Reflection Of You
Lyrics by D. Swisher
© 2008 - Elijah’s Dream

Verse 1
How long will man be blind to you, my Lord
How long will it take to get through, my Lord
I think it about it night and day, my Lord
Give me the right words to say, my Lord

Chorus
Send me, I will go
Use me to let them know
You died so that we might be free
I will spend, my time
Making, sure that I’m
Being what You want me to be -
A refelction of You.

Verse 2
More of You and less of me, my Lord
That’s what I want You to see, my Lord
I look around, the time is near, my Lord
You are my sword, I will not fear, my Lord

Repeat Chorus

Breath Of Life

Written By: Elijah's Dream

Breath Of Life
Lyrics by D. Swisher
© 2009 - Elijah’s Dream

Verse 1
Time is a killing thing
Everyone must face the truth someday
Time is a healing thing
Nothing else can take the pain away

Love cuts you till you bleed
In every life there is a place to cry
Love can be all we need
Some receive and some just pass on by

Chorus
Breath of life, breath in me
Open my eyes, that I might see
Now I know, when You speak
Lord I pray, my soul to keep

Verse 2
Night can without end
Searching for the day that never comes
Night can be your best friend
Helping hide the fear felt by some

Tears of a lonely man
Flowing from a river deep inside
Tears sometimes only can
Wash away the sins of foolish pride

Repeat Chorus

I Belong (To You Now)

Written By: Elijah's Dream

I Belong (To You Now)
Lyrics by D. Swisher
© 2008 - Elijah’s Dream

Verse 1
I feel your presence, everywhere I go
I know you’re with me, and when I’m feelin’ low
You are the reason, I can smile again
I have been changed, You took away my sins

Chorus
I belong to You now
I belong to You now

Verse 2
When every thing is closing in on me
I turn to You and You will set me free
Oh what a difference, it’s like a brand new start
I asked forgiveness, You came into my heart

Repeat Chorus
