Lyrics

Get Thee Behind Me Satan

Written By: Hockenberry Epsha

Verse 1
You'd better step on back
To the end of the line
There’s nothing here for you
You’re just wasting all your time

Verse 2
Everything you bring
Is ain’t good enough
But you always deliver
But I don't want your stuff

PRECHORUS
I won't live in servitude
So move on back now
There's no room up here for you

CHORUS
Get Thee Behind Me
Get Thee Behind Me Satan

Verse 3
I followed you up
But you can’t fool me at the top
You made your big bad promises
I thought you’d never stop

Verse 4
I see where this is going
And right through the things you do
You tried to lead the way
But I’ll never follow you, no no no

PRECHORUS
There ain’t nothing here for me
So move on back
Its time for you to follow me

CHORUS
Get Thee Behind Me
Get Thee Behind Me Satan
Get Thee Behind Me
Get Thee Behind Me Satan

BRIDGE
I won’t deal with you
Doesn’t matter what you do
I will never let you lead the way
You can’t understand
While I’ll never shake your hand
Listen to me when you hear me say
Get Thee Behind Me…

Verse 5
You'd better move on back
Cuz its the end of the line
Nothin left for you
You’re just wasting all your time

PRECHORUS
I won't live in servitude
So move on back now
There's no room up here for you

CHORUS
Get Thee Behind Me
Get Thee Behind Me Satan
Get Thee Behind Me
Get Thee Behind Me Satan
Get Thee Behind Me
Get Thee Behind Me Satan
Get Thee Behind Me
Get Thee Behind Me Satan
Get Thee Behind Me
Get Thee Behind Me Satan

Redemption

Written By: Hockenberry Epsha

Verse 1
Damn the dark of the nights
It always seems to swallow me
I turn my back on God again
Who may or may not be
Well it’s always my own hand
That tries to choke my soul
Another twisted lesson today
Never makes me whole

PRECHORUS
Forgive me for my blindness
And what I chose to see
But I don’t want your kindness here
The only thing for me is . . .

CHORUS
Redemption
Oh redemption
I need redemption
God forgive me

Verse 2
I know I’ve made my bed
Up inside this head
And I made up all of my reasons
To keep the demons fed
I don’t want your sympathy
I can do this on my own
I’m the only one who will cry for me
So lonely but I’m not alone

PRECHORUS
Forgive me I am human
Another mistake made
Don’t write me off too soon now
’Cause I was just about to pray for . . .

CHORUS
Redemption
Oh redemption
I need redemption
God forgive me

Bridge
You can try forgiveness
You can try to forget
Please don’t crucify me
I’m not ready yet

CHORUS
Please redemption
Oh redemption
You know I need redemption
God forgive me
Redemption
You know I need redemption
Redemption
God forgive me

Take You Down

Written By: Hockenberry Epsha

Verse 1
You can have your way
With any soul you say
But now its time to even the score
We may never know
How many are down below
But you say there room for just one more
The end is near…

Verse 2
You have made your case
Against the human race
But the jury does not look like you
They have heard your lies
You can see it in their eyes
There’s nothing left for them to do
The decision’s clear …

Chorus
They’re gonna take you down
We’re gonna take you down
I think it’s time to take you down
Where you can’t make a sound

Verse 3
For the one’s not here
I have no fear
I know exactly what to do
And to those who need
The darkness to bleed
You know that I’m the one for you
You’ll never get away…

Chorus
They’re gonna take you down
We’re gonna take you down
I think its time to take you down
To where you can’t make a sound

Verse 4
You have changed your name
But your fate will stay the same
Your sentence here is almost complete
Now you realize
I can see through your disguise
I will not know defeat
I can smell your fear . . .

Chorus
I’m gonna take you down
We’re gonna take you down
I think its time to take you down
To where you can’t make a sound
Where you can’t make a sound
Take you down
To where you can’t make a sound
All the way down
I’m gonna take you down
I’m gonna take you down
To where you can’t make a sound

Tennessee For You
©2010 Tim Hockenberry and Christopher Epsha
Lyrics and Music: Tim Hockenberry and Christopher Epsha

Verse 1
You know I’ll be right here waiting for you
Doesn’t even matter what time you got through
Never a waste of time, waiting for you
With roots and wings with nothing to do

CHORUS
Never thinking you would ever die
Everybody has their reasons why
Maybe there’s a way that I can
Fly to Tennessee for you
Fly to Tennessee for you

Verse 2
Did you get lonely on the top of that hill?
Maybe you only wanted a thrill
What makes me think that you’d be there still
I bet you love me and you always will. . .

CHORUS
I never thought that you would ever die
Now I know you’ll never see me cry
Maybe there’s a way for me to
Fly to Tennessee for you
Fly to Tennessee for you

Bridge
Climbin’ to the top of the stairs
Just starin’ out . . . into the air
I’m hopin’ you are out there… somewhere
Even though sometimes it just seems so unfair

Verse 3
I’m a little lost waiting for you
I don’t think I’ll ever ever be through
I’ll never leave you here, baby its true
I’m right back here waiting for you

CHORUS
Never thinking you would ever die
Everybody has their reasons why
Crushed (you) couldn’t trust in me to hear
All the things you thought that I would fear
Maybe theres a way for me to
Fly to Tennessee for you
Fly to Tennessee for you
