The Life and Death Brigade

BandRockAlternative

Our tight power trio will hit you in the head like a velvet covered brick. Our original songs are edgy, subtle, driving and mysterious, with roots in classic rock, gospel, metal, and blues.

Biography

The Life and Death Brigade is almost like a super hero team! All three members slave away at their boring blue collar day jobs until the whistle blows and they race towards their base (practice space) and don their costumes (instruments) to fight the evils of uninspired and mediocre music that surrounds them!

All three members of The Life and Death Brigade have only a few common points of interest: playing music and becoming less concerned with what happens in their lives and eventual deaths, but rather concerned with how they will meet these challenges.

Lyrics

God Through Us

Written By: Dylan Frashier

Shine your light. God through us.
God through us. Shine your light.
Show your love. God through us.
God through us. Show your love.

Deliver peace. God through us.
God through us. Deliver peace.
Give them hope. God through us.
God through us. Give them hope.

Almighty creator above us,
Use these hands to do your will,
Reach out to your kingdom father,
God through us.

Bring them joy. God through us.
God through us. Bring them joy.
Bring you praise. God through us.
God through us. Bring you praise.

Almighty creator above us,
Use these hands to do your will,
Reach out to your kingdom father,
God through us.

Extend your grace. God through us.
God through us. Extend your grace.
Exalt your name. God through us.
God through us. Exalt your name.

Almighty creator above us,
Use these hands to do your will,
Reach out to your kingdom father,
God through us.

Shine your light, show your love,
Deliver peace, give them hope,
Bring them joy, bring you praise,
Extend your grace, exalt your name.

Almighty creator above us,
Use these hands to do your will,
Reach out to your kingdom father,
God through us.

My Bad Ways

Written By: Dylan Frashier

Lookin’ for kind words, couldn’t find any,
Nothin’ but garbage all around.
Must of done good deeds, but not many,
All of the trouble I have found.

All of the wrong roads have been plenty,
Done nothin’ but drag me down.
Lookin’ for sex, drugs, and more money,
Nothin’ but darkness, I have found.

Damn my bad ways,
And all the crap I say.
I think it’s time to change,
Change my bad ways.

Lookin’ for someone to rescue me,
From what I can’t get out of myself.
Beat all the demons that dwell within me,
Make em’ go somewhere else.

Damn my bad ways,
And all the crap I say.
I think it’s time to change,
Change my bad ways.

My temper causes so much damage,
My words have hurt the ones I love,
My passions pull me toward the darkness,
Dishonesty has cost me trust.

Lookin’ for kind words, couldn’t find any,
Nothin’ but garbage all around.
Must of done good deeds, but not many,
All of the trouble I have found.

Damn my bad ways,
And all the crap I say.
I think it’s time to change,
Change my bad ways.

Awaken Me

Written By: Dylan Frashier

Lord I know I don’t pray enough,
And I feel my faith is too small.
All I want is to grow closer to you,
Closer to truth,

The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak,
If you’re willing, wake me from my sleep,

Shake me Lord, awaken me,
Save me from where my will has taken me.
Wipe the slumber from my eyes, lead my feet when I arise,
And awaken me, awaken me.

Lord I know I don’t do enough,
For the least of my brothers.
All the things I could do for them,
Would be for you,

The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak,
If you’re willing, wake me from my sleep,

Shake me Lord, awaken me,
Save me from where my will has taken me.
Wipe the slumber from my eyes, lead my feet when I arise,
And awaken me, awaken me.

Wake me, up Lord,
Shake me from, my sleep.

Only God’s grace and our faith can save us,
And faith without works is dead,
We were created to do good things in our savior, Christ Jesus,
Let us be, a living sacrifice, for the one who died, in our stead.

Shake me Lord, awaken me,
Save me from where my will has taken me.
Wipe the slumber from my eyes, lead my feet when I arise,
And awaken me, awaken me.

Morning Light

Written By: Alec Hoenicke, Dylan Frashier

I will worship you my Lord,
In my darkest night.
I will praise you holy God,
You’re the morning light.

On Fire

Written By: Dylan Frashier

See the new believer, yeah,
On fire for the Lord.
So young in their walk with Christ,
So much more to be explored.

Do you smell something burning?
Is it getting hot in here?
Oh man, I think it’s me!
I’m on fire for the Lord.
He has reached down to my once cold heart,
And set it on fire.
Think it’s time to stop, drop, and pray.

See those who’ve walked a while,
Years of lifting Jesus’ name.
Still burning with the passion,
Still spreading Jesus’ flame.

Do you smell something burning?
Is it getting hot in here?
Oh man, I think it’s me!
I’m on fire for the Lord.
He has reached down to my once cold heart,
And set it on fire.
Think it’s time to stop, drop, and pray.

See those I love in heaven,
Walking hand in hand with him.
No more pain, no more sorrows,
They are living free from sin.

Do you smell something burning?
Is it getting hot in here?
Oh man, I think it’s me!
I’m on fire for the Lord.
He has reached down to my once cold heart,
And set it on fire.
Think it’s time to stop, drop, and pray.
