Stark/Spare 3:50

Rez Band - Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore - © 1981

 

Stark/spare and barely there
The ghetto moves beyond the knowledge
Or even consideration
Of the upper-middle riddles
That just don't care
Stark/spare an' tell me who cares
Slumming ain't the answer
To the cancer poverty		
That so many of the poor
Slip into degree
Jesus walked among them
Pausing to refresh
Finally giving to the point of blood
To share their emptiness
Mark and Teresa
Godspeed to you
Suffering in love
When you don't have too
And God have mercy
On the rest of us to
'Cause when we shut out the poor
Lord, we're shutting out you

Jesus walked among them
Pausing to refresh
Finally giving to the point of blood
To share their emptiness
And we must walk among them
For we can do no less
Than what the Saviour taught us
By his life and by his death
For the truth is on our tables
The crumbs are on our floors
We must give while we are able
Both Lazarus and our judge are at the door

Elevator Muzik 1:58

Rez Band - Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore - © 1981


Who needs rock'n roll
Who needs song savin' your soul
Plastic musik plastic food
Cellophane tunes for that
Synthetic mood
You got your inspiration from a vending machine
It's an audio starvation diet
Mannquins on a shopping spree
Who cares if you like it
BUY IT !

It's everywhere I go
It programs my soul
It tells me what I need
It takes me the lead-lead-lead
Elevator Muzik
It's a capital idea
Elevator musik
Programmed just for you
Elevating sales at the speed of sound
Soon you'll be shopping in sensuround

Controlling your wallet
Coaxing your soul
The corporate big brother
It's an overload
Get off that conveyor
That treadmill of persuasion
Jesus brings the light into every situation

Elevator musik  - It's a failure in heaven
Elevator musik - It's a subtile kinda leaven
What this world needs
Is music that feeds
Not elevator musik
Not elevator musik
Dump elevator musik
Get rid of elevator musik

Alienated 2:00

Rez Band - Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore - © 1981


I like your name I like your face
Are you a charter member of the human race
Are you ever frustrated by the things you see
Does it make you sad or upset like me

Alienated from this world
Talked about but politely neglected
Alienated from this world
And I'm begining to understand

With love in your eyes you confront the lies
The double standards and the party ties
My one affiliation isn't with your name
To share your kingdom and to share your shame

Lord, You are Alienated from this world
Talked about but politely neglected
Alienated from this world
And I'm begining to understand

Alienated from this world
Talked about but politely neglected
Alienated from this world
And I'm begining to understand

I have chosen the narrow road
Lord, You gave me such an easy load
I look at Your cross and I see Your love...

Lord, You are Alienated from this world
Talked about but politely neglected
Alienated from this world
And I'm begining to understand

Alienated from this world
Talked about but politely neglected
Alienated from this world
And I'm begining to understand

Can't Get You Out Of My Mind 2:57

Rez Band - Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore - © 1981




I heard Your song on the radio
It stole my heart and it won't let go
I'm telling You it was so unreal
You know exactly how I feel

It said that You were the Only One
Who understood where I was coming from
You put me together and You tore me apart
You told me the truth about my broken heart


And, I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my
I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my
I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my mind


All of my friends say I'm going mad
I guess I thought they might understand
But nothing I do, and nothing I say
Can make Your melody go away

I sat there on my sinking ship
I wrung my hands and I bit my lip
Staring at my shoes and my ball and chain
While on and on your music played


And, I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my
I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my
I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my mind

I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my
I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my
I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my mind


The news is spreading all over town
You tore all of my road blocks down
I can hardly eat, or hardly sleep
I'm over my head in a Love so deep

I heard what You said, You told me what can be
And then You left it up to me
But once I realized it was true
Jesus how could I let You


And, I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my
I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my
I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my mind

I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my
I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my
I can't (I can't)
Get You outta my mind

Outta my mind........

The Chair 5:06

Rez Band - Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore - © 1981


Paralyzing facts countless diseases 
Semi-mobile, semi-useless, sub-human
So many startled eyes say 
"only an occasional ray of light" 
But feel free to subtract any ray of hope. 

Disabled confined labeled and shelved 
Minus-limbs minus-movement minus-worth
"so sorry" they say, but they forget me. 
Once a year they buy themselves that right.

We won't understanding not pity
We need love not occassional headlines
We've been used and abused and aborted for years
and I've learned not to expect respect for my tears

Regular check-ups needles and charts
The nodding of heads and the shedding of hearts
My legs are defenseless this chair is my cell
My food is my medicine reality hell

Disabled confined labeled and shelved 
Minus-limbs minus-movement minus-worth
"so sorry" they say, but they forget me. 
Once a year they buy themselves that right.

We won't understanding not pity
We need love not occassional headlines
We've been used and abused and aborted for years
And I've learned not to expect respect for my tears

Sometimes I feel so removed
Lost in a maze of self-pity and dreams
No one regards me I just don't belong
They don't know how to react around me

Sometimes I feel so removed
Lost in a maze of self-pity and dreams
No one regards me I just don't belong
They don't know how to react around me

Until you came to me Lord 
I had so little to live for
Til you came to me Lord 
I had nowhere to turn
Jesus you alone have helped me to grow
Beyond my circumstance and despair
My suffering can't compare to what you took willingly
My sacrifice nowhere near what you gave on that tree
I can see though I'm blind
Loving one at a time
There is so much that I can do
Giving love and following you
Giving love and following you
I'm so glad you care
Let my love flow free from this chair.

Can't Do It On My Own 2:54

Rez Band - Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore - © 1981


 

I've tried to understand what went wrong
I've tried to figure out why it took so long
I've tried to go back through my past
And just undo the selfishness
I've tried to turn my heart from stone into a heart of tenderness
But I can't do it I can't do it on my own
I can't do it I can't do it all alone
I can't do it I can't do it on my own

Late at night lying im my bed
I used to ask myself, is it You or is it me who's dead
Until I saw You for myself and You revealed Your love to me
I never gave my heart away
And love was just a mystery
I could'nt do it couldn't it on my own
I could'nt do it couldn't do it all alone
I could'nt do it couldn't do it on my own

I could'nt do it couldn't it on my own
I could'nt do it couldn't do it all alone
I could'nt do it couldn't do it on my own

First Degree Apathy

Rez Band - Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore - © 1981


 

You sit there don't care twiddling your thumbs
You don't mind to waste your time contemplate the air
There's no life it ain't right the passive state you're in
Apathetic yeh pathetic can't you see it's sin

You're being judged
And righteously
The sentence is passed
It's apathy
You're being judged
And righteously
The sentence is passed
It's apathy in the first degree

You might be lost might be found doesn't make a difference
Sleepwalking you're just jive-talking obviously indifferent
What'd you care if the world gonna burn
With millions going to hell
You might be with them or maybe you won't
But it' sure hard to tell

You're being judged
And righteously
The sentence is passed
It's apathy
You're being judged
And righteously
The sentence is passed
It's apathy in the first degree

It's easy to realize
Much a' the world has closed its eyes
Sometimes I cry 
For Christians to care at all
It's sure Jesus cares 
Wasn't passive that's sure
In the comfort seeking church
He calls us to share the hurt

You're being judged
And righteously
The sentence is passed
It's apathy
You're being judged
And righteously
The sentence is passed
It's apathy in the first degree

Apathy in the first degree

Wake up, wake up

Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore 4:21

Rez Band - Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore - © 1981


Mommy says she don't love daddy anymore
Daddy says mommy walking out the door
Sister says she's getting married to escape
Brother says enlisting sounds just great

Me I don't know who to believe
Me I don't know how to maintain
The world that used to be
'Cause everyone is leaving me 
Everyone is leaving me 
Everyone is leaving me 
Everyone

When you're eight and your family is dying
When you're hurt but too scared to cry
What on earth can you do to find release
God, what is, what is happening to me

And me I don't know who to believe
Me I don't know how to maintain
The world that used to be
'Cause everyone is leaving me 
Everyone is leaving me 
Everyone is leaving me 
Everyone
Everyone

Daddy shrugs and slowly turns away
Mommy says God why did it end this way
Can our family really die so fast
Is love a thing that just won't last
Me I don't know who to believe
Me I don't know how to receive
The love that used to be
'Cause everyone is leaving me 
Everyone is leaving me 
Everyone is leaving me 
Everyone

God, please don't leave me

The Crossing 3:50

Rez Band - Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore - © 1981


It was a rainy day in Amsterdam
When the curtain came crashing down
It was a solo dance, finished romance
Once again I played the clown
With no one there left to care
I took the boat to London
That night the channel looked to me
Like a friend I could lean on

Crossing the border, losing myself
Leaving a part of me behind
Crossing the border, tears in my soul
But you're healing my heart and my mind

It was a foggy night on Brighton Beach
Waves writting in the sand
I walked alone beneath the haze
A broken empty man
The dreams and castles that I'd built
Had all been lost at sea
The shadows played, someone prayed
Daylight finally found me

Crossing the border, losing myself
Leaving a part of me behind
Crossing the border, tears in my soul
But you're healing my heart and my mind
You've been healing my mind

Crossing the border, losing myself
Leaving a part of me behind
Crossing the border, tears in my soul
But you're healing my heart and my mind

Crossing the border, losing myself
Leaving a part of me behind
Crossing the border, tears in my soul
But you're healing my heart and my mind
Healing my heart and my mind

Little Children 2:38

Rez Band - Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore - © 1981


Dead black kids in Atlanta
When will this insanity end
White or black, many or one
The killer poses as a friend
Fear grips the little children
They can hardly sleep at night
The Klan The Nazis, and the FBI
Only adding to their fright

In South East Asian refugee camp
To Haiti and beyond
The suffering of these little ones
Screams at a world gone wrong
The selfishness, greediness
And wars have crippled and killed them
We can roll in the shame of our sinful gain
But we can't replace our children

Abort me abuse me
Rape and use me
To buy your way to happiness
Swear or hit me or just neglect me
It's only at a child expense
What does it matter
You'll get what you're after
But if I die before I wake
I'll be safe
In the arms of my Saviour
So much love for so much hate

Lovin' You 3:25

Rez Band - Mommy Don't Love Daddy Anymore - © 1981

 	
I love the rain
I love the autumn wind
I love the snow
I love the space I'm in
I love the cold, on a winter's day
I love the truth, of the things You say

Sometimes my world gets spinning like a top
No matter what the price I just can't stop


I can't stop lovin' You
I can't stop lovin' You, no no
I can't stop lovin' You
No matter what they say


I love the waves, on a stormy sea
I love the stars, the way they shine at me
I love the moon, I see Your Light in it
I love Your Word, there's so much life in It

Sometimes I feel my world is falling down
How good to know Lord that I've been found


I can't stop lovin' You
I can't stop lovin' You, no no
I can't stop lovin' You
No matter what they say

There's nothing more, that I'd like to do
Than to see Your Face, and fly away with You
And pass those gates, and enter Heaven
With my wife, and my children

Oh Lord I know You must be coming soon
I'll stand before this world and shout it's true


I can't stop lovin' You
I can't stop lovin' You, no no
I can't stop lovin' You
No matter what they say

I can't stop lovin' You
I can't stop lovin' You, no no
I can't stop lovin' You
No matter what they say

Lord, I can't stop lovin' You
I can't stop lovin' You, no no
I can't stop lovin' You
No matter what they say
