Biography

Lost in Rotation (LIR) is a four piece Christian band from Stafford, Va. Their music is a collision of rock, acoustic, alternative, pop, and balladic stylings that set them apart, and keeps them away from being categorized into a corner. LIR was featured at the Virginia state fair last year and recently appeared on the “Virginia This Morning” television show (based out of Richmond, VA). The band has played a variety of venues ranging from coffee houses and bars to worship services and youth conferences. LIR owns all its sound equipment and thus can easily provide music and sound for venues of 500-1000 people. LIR is currently working on two independent CDs (Almost Unplugged and Wild Romance) that showcase several exciting new original songs written by Lost in Rotation. LIR started as a three piece in early '04, and later that year released their freshman cd, "from nothing to everything." Florida Wayne (lead vocals & acoustic guitar) and Pat Branson (drums & percussion) spent all of '05 and most of '06 losing and/or replacing members of the band, and as a result they came to a stand still - until '06, when they added Mike Schilling (bass) and Mike Kelly (lead guitar & vocals). This was the change that LIR desperately needed to move to the next level. In May of '07 they released their sophomore cd, "the barnyard session vol.1" actually recorded in a barn in Brunswick County, Va. LIR's desire is to be a part of God's plan to bring the message of Jesus Christ to a lost world. The band members are worship leaders at their home churches and thus have a heart for singing praises to God and leading people into His presence. LIR's mission is to bring music that glorifies Jesus Christ into public venues so that people who do not know God can hear about him.

Lyrics

Letters

Written By: Lost In Rotation

Two thousand year old letters
Forwarded to my door
And as these times go by
I sit and realize
Your word remains the same
And nothing ever changed
It's all the same my friend, it's all the same
It's all the same

Chorus:
I'm reading letters from Paul
I'm reading letters from Paul
I'm reading letters from, I'm reading letters
I'm reading letters from Paul

You turned to dust a long time ago
And the truth you told me of
Well now I know
Two thousand years of love
Forwarded to my name
You wrote the breath of God
Your word remains all the same

It's all the same
Nothing has changed
The word of God goes on
To your front door

Dove Song

Written By: Lost in Rotation

Verse 1:
If peace came on the wing of a dove
Would you shoot it down in the name of love
And hold it up, for all to see
Or would you hide it from your enemy

Bridge:
Lift the wing up to the sky
Lift it up for you and I
Peace will ring, eternity
Peace will be, you and me

Chorus:
Take flight and rise above your pain and strife
Turn your eyes to the one who can save your life
Peace and harmony, all that sounds so nice
When you reach out to him, the one who paid the price

Verse 2:
Or would you let, the bird fly away
Holding on to all your fear of yesterday
Don't take flight, without the wing
This is my plea and why I sing

Crawl

Written By: Lost in Rotation

Verse 1:
If I can't walk, if I can't talk
I crawl to where Your grace is
If I can't see, if I can't talk
I crawl to where Your grace is

Chorus:
Aha, yea yea, I crawl to where Your grace is
Aha, yea yea, I crawl to where Your grace is

Verse 2:
The saints have come, the people lied
Focus on the flame pleasure crowned peace the prize
Left on the floor, left to die
I crawl to where Your grace is
I wasn't alone, I was alive
I crawl to where Your grace is

The Innocent

Written By: Lost in Rotation

Verse 1:
We are warriors not for fortune
We are soldiers not for fame
The cross we take up daily
For the King, "Glory's" His name

Chorus:
We cry a thousand tears
For the souls of our enemies
We die a thousand deaths
Advancing the kingdom
We pray ten thousand prayers
For the hearts of the innocent
The innocent

Verse 2:
Prepare for battle armored and true
Where there's war, we will move
If love we have not, we will fail
With God's mercy peace prevails

Verse 3:
We are warriors, fighting soldiers
If love we have not, we will fail
With God's mercy peace prevails

Ask

Written By: Lost in Rotation

Verse 1:
Is it green on the other side
Does it make you feel better inside
Every ideal situation has its ups and downs

Bridge:
You are everyone
You are everyone to me

Chorus:
Ask and you will receive
Seek and you will find
Knock and the door will be opened
For everyone

Verse 2:
Ask for what you want
You always get what you need
All your hopes, all your dreams
All this when you believe

Lord of All

Written By: Lost in Rotation

Verse:
Lord, You're Lord of all
My precious Jesus, we give You praise
Lord, You're Lord of all
My precious Jesus, we give You praise

Chorus:
Cause You're the "Prince of Peace"
And "Lord of Lords"
You're the "King of Kings"
Lord of All
