“See Heartless Progress”

The world sings its song:
To Hell with the children,
Protect all other living things,
Sacrifice all for our progress.

The future belongs to us,
We are the masters of our fate,
We are the engineers of our destiny,
We are the only gods of our lives.

Let peoples’ blood be shed,
Let it flow and cover the earth
As long as we get what we want.
So what if there’s blood on our hands?

Expediency is our method,
The ends justify the means.
Our goal will be achieved –
A Godless Paradise on Earth!

The gears of the progress machine
Are oiled with the blood of innocents.
Crimson streams flow everywhere,
The horizon is painted bloody red.

Heartless naturalistic pragmatism,
Foolish mechanistic functioning,
Cancerous conscienceless plans,
In a hurry on the highway to Hell.

They’re breathing murder
And spreading hatred,
They now sow to the wind and flesh,
They’ll reap the whirlwind and destruction.

They want a Godless utopia here
But they’ll only get Hell on Earth.
The greedy and ungodly fools
Will meet their sad end one day.

“If This Is All There Is”

“If This Is All There Is”

If this is all there is,
The here and the now
And nothing after
When we let out our last breath
Then we’re all wasting our time
So let’s waste it as we see fit,
Feed on lust, lies, sins, all of it.
What does it matter?
It doesn’t matter,
It never mattered.

If all we are is dust
And there is only matter
Then what’s the point of this
Period of time we call life?

If we all exist for a little time
And then disappear into nothing
Then do any of us really live
And if so, what’s the point of it?

Who has the answers to these questions?
Only a true fool would say
These questions don’t matter.

I’d like an answer that satisfies
My heart and my mind,
I don’t want excuses,
I want to hear the best answers
The so-called smartest and wisest can offer.

I don’t want theories that hold no weight,
I don’t want subjective nothingness,
I don’t want answers to hypothetical existence,
I want the real thing, it has to be something of substance,
I don’t want the superficial and hollow,
I want something true and something sure.

The world’s wisdom can’t answer these questions.
The worldings fail to give the answers,
All that the worldlings give amounts to
Hollow, shallow, superficial, insufficient,
Sad attempts by usaved souls to give
What they cannot because they reject
The Way and the Truth and Life,
So all they know is confusion, falsehood, and death.

“Against Meaninglessness”

“Against Meaninglessness”

“This life is all you get,
There’s nothing after death.”
It’s a comforting delusion
For those with pitiful hopes.

All their words seem so empty,
They spread their hopelessness,
It all seems so meaningless in the end.
Do they believe it themselves?

Are we all just fooling ourselves?
Are we all just fooling one another?
If this is all as meaningless as they say
Then there’s nothing to keep despair away.

Can you show us something you love,
Watch it die and say it’s just life?
Can all the pain and all the tears
Mean nothing to you in the end?

Can’t live this way – exist and die,
“Nothing is eternal,” fools say,
Nihilism is despair, it’s useless,
Don’t believe those fools’ delusions.

“To Praise You, Lord”

“To Praise You, Lord”

We will sing to You
And praise Your holy name,
You’re the Way and Truth
And the Life of all, Lord.

God, forgive our sins,
Wash away our shame,
Fill us with Your Holy Spirit
And make us whole again.

Lead us where You will,
Be our strength to fight
The battles yet to come,
In it all be with us, Lord.

The Devil and Hell may rage,
Our bodies may grow weak
But You will be our strength
For You’ve overcome it all.

You are the Way,
You are the Truth,
You are the Life,
You are all we need!

“The Fading and Renewing”

“The Fading and Renewing”

Light fades with the setting of the sun,
Hope fades while the battle’s not won,
Much love fades on the liar’s face,
Time passes with a flying pace.

“Strengthen the tired heart, dear Lord,
The battle has gone on for so long.
Renew the spirit, give a new song,
The soul won’t wither with the world.”

The fading of all that is prone to fade
Surely will come in its appointed time
But hope in God your heart won’t evade
And God can forgive our every crime.

It’s true, false remedies won’t alleviate the pain,
False cures won’t avail those suffering,
Hope won’t grow from a liar’s offering
And all the enemy’s efforts are ultimately in vain.

“Only Fooling Yourself”

“Only Fooling Yourself”

A cycle of fooling self
That this will relax you
When the stress grips,
When problems abound.

The inhalation
Of the poison,
A false relief,
So very brief.

Oh, what a waste
Of time and money;
You’re ruining your health,
You’re killing yourself slowly.

This isn’t what you need.
Why is it what you want?
You ignore all the warnings,
You’ve only yourself to blame.

Nothing good will come of this.
There’s poison in your lungs,
You’re in addiction’s grip,
You’re wasting life you’re given.
