Track Name: For the Love of the People
for the love of the people he gave his life
for the love of the people he gave all he had
what more could he give to us than his love?
that god so loved the world that he gave his only son
that whoever believe in him shall receive everlasting life
everlasting life
what more could he give to us than his love?
Track Name: Is My Living In Vain?
is my living in vain?
is my singing in vain?
is my dancing in vain?
is my striving in vain?

oh no, no, of course not
it's not in vain
look just up the road: eternal gain
oh no, no of course not
it's not in vain
everlasting life
he promised me eternal gain

am i wasting my time?
can the clock be rewind?
have i let my light shine?
have i made ninety-nine?
is my living in vain?

chorus

is my living in vain?
is my labour in vain?
is my singing in vain?
is my thinking in vain?
is my playing the guitar in vain?
is my semen in vain?
is my writing in vain?
is my playing the guitar in vain?
is my semen in vain?
is my fasting in vain?
is my living in vain?

now i think ahead to the moment i am free to put down my heavy weight and take up life in thee
now i'm asking you, say, is my living in, in vain?
Track Name: God Is Calling Me
god is calling me
to do something a little louder each day,
i listen a little more each day,
i break away from hating myself a little more each day,
please fix what's broken
Track Name: Let It Be You
the body inflamed
let it be you who draft the pain
the body in scores
let it be you who insert the mass into the chamber
let it be you
let it be you who flies the scene into a lesser scene

the body in sight
let it be you within the frame
the body online
let it be you who take me to town
the town i live there
i wanna go back

all we wanna do is get hard
all we wanna do is get down
all we wanna do is go now
all we wanna do is go downtown
all we wanna do is get done
all we wanna do is get down
all we wanna do is be down
all we wanna do is go downtown
all we wanna do is bottom out
all we wanna do is sing loud
all we wanna do is get plowed
all we wanna do is go downtown
Track Name: Triumph
remember the light we almost shared
down in the gardens in the square
you touch her and the crowds rejoice
the sound of a piano the sound of your voice
my god i feel so, so new

walk through fire you take the burn
make it a throne to crown your word
the cultivation of the boy results in
wholly overdoing it every time
until now until you

loved by millions loved by all
such is your triumph
may you never fall

throw your arms around the
image of the figure you trust
who'll care enough to follow you up
toward the light that you'll share with
even the fools who mock your ways
can't harm the product, harm the face
the posturing of one world
becomes the intent of another
follow your lead into now
follow your voice into now
follow your moves into now
know all your songs into now
treasure your eyes into now
treasure your lips into now
treasure your skin into now
honour your will into now, into you

be at your side when you take the fall
such is your triumph
you will gladly fall
