SILENCE SCREAMS




Silence Screams

Resurrection Band - SILENCE SCREAMS - © 1988


The hand are frozen solid on the face of saving grace
Where infiels are harlots choose a blackened burning place

Silence screams, the echoes roar
Silence screams, forever more

With idiots and manneguins and charlatans in tow
Circus clows and lunatics and ladies dressed for show
In a sullen field of chaos where dead men still have dreams
From pressure in these spaces silence screams

The folly in our passion
The prisoner of desire
The fooliness of bigots
Tinder for the fire
In bitterness and exile
As brutal as it seems
In the coldest darkest spirit
Silence screams

You knew
You heard the truth
You understood
You knew what to do
To receive Him
Believe Him

You Got Me Rockin'

Resurrection Band - SILENCE SCREAMS - © 1988


Ain't pullin' no punches
I got nothing to prove
I'm a holy roller an' I live in Your Truth
For Your power is mighty
An' I trust in Your Word
So bring on the lions, they have to face you first

You got me rockin'
An' I give you control
You got me rolling
My name's on the roll

Fill me with Your Spirit
Transform my mind
I will not be silent
'Cause now is the time
For the Truth of the gospel
To be shouted out loud
In the heat of the battle
In the midst of the crowd

I thank You for dyin', so that I could live
I thank You for somethin', that I could give
My tallent surrendered me
My life on the line
Jesus You're my salvation
Turnin' water to wine

Someone Sleeps

Resurrection Band - SILENCE SCREAMS - © 1988

Yellow moon rice
And the shadows are so long
Comes as no suprise
I hear another good night song
And the echoes
In those hills
A random rhythm
The silence fills

And someone deals in pain
And someone deals in power
And someone sleeps tonight (forever)

Ragged children left to play
Fear, then hear the sound
Run, run, oh run away
Stumbling feet on dusty clay
In the rockets glaring red
A weeping mother bows her head
'Cause someone sleeps tonight, forever

And in the flame's of inferno
Consuming human flesh and soul
Innocence becomes a stranger
Despair a burning coal
An old man's eyes are vacant
His hand is open, still
Children wander in the ruined streets
Wrehe grief roams, never filled
Sometimes at night they hear
The wind of a past they cannot change
And in the morning silence
Tell me what goodness will remain?
The bitter cup is filled once more
A bloody history pains this land
They try to seal a tomb that's empty
While they build the cross again

Waitin' On Sundown

Resurrection Band - SILENCE SCREAMS - © 1988

Hands in pockets
His wallet's a weapon
Corporation hit man
Nothin's left when he's done

They come from Pnomh Penh
Got seven children
What's the difference
He'll just evict them
No need to trick them
Just a victim

He don't know the family
He don't need no reason
He just play the game of buy and sell
People don't concern him
Money is what drives him
Why should he be bothered by them hell?

Waitin' on sundown
They get the lowdown
I don't want you in my town

No way to hold out
Just bought and sold out
Down the river
No one to turn to
Their home went to
The higgest bidder

Waitin' on sundown
It's the story of Uptown
Another refugee rundown
There is gonna be a shutdown!

Presence Of The Lord

Resurrection Band - SILENCE SCREAMS - © 1988

I have finally found a way to live like I never knew before
And I know I don't have much to give but He will open every door
Everybody knows the secret, everybody knows the score
I have finally found a way to live, in the color of the Lord

I have finally found a place to give like I never knew before
And I know I don't have much to give but He will open every door
Everybody knows, it's no secret, everybody knows the score
I have finally found a place to give, in the presence of my Lord

Light/Light

Resurrection Band - SILENCE SCREAMS - © 1988

They surround Me like a ring of fire
They crown me with bitter desire
I pay for the sake of souls
My grave just a visit below

Storms inside, darkness in broad daylight
The pounding of the waves lonely black as night

Light, light, carry My light on high
Light, light, carry it on

Silence the great divorce of dreams
The frozen sound, the holy ground, and today they rise with Me

Rain Dance

Resurrection Band - SILENCE SCREAMS - © 1988

Talkin' to myself
Idea and images covered with dust
Memories well-worn from contant use
Stained by loneliness and lust
Heaping on my heart abuse
Somebody tell me
What's the use?
Somebody tell me
Somebody tell me
What's the use?

Wet-walking in streaming rain
Hair stuck to my head like my thoughts
Regrets half-felt and sin half-loved
What I have bought?
Drops coming down on my face
And on the roof tops
But they don't reach inside me
I say faith is just for fools
Somebody tell me
What's the use?

Love cold and wet
Against my skin
Where do you end
How do you begin
I'm so lost in a world without Your breath	  
Afraid to be in touch without (...)
Needing Your fire
Fearing Your flame
Should I surrender
Waiting for the rain
Streaming rain
Come rain
Lord send Your rain, rain, rain rain rain
Yeah, yeah
Send Your rain
Rain rain rain

Every Waking Hour

Resurrection Band - SILENCE SCREAMS - © 1988

You're getting through to me
There's no mistake
I knew it instantly
There's no escape

Shadow on the wall
Ooh, voice in my night
It's like a silent movie
Runnin' in my mind

I think I know You
I think I'm known
No one can fool You
My cover's blown

Shadow on the wall
Ooh, voice in my night
It's like a silent movie
Runnin' in my mind

Shadow on the wall
Ooh, voice in my night
It's like a silent movie
Runnin' in my mind

What are You tellin' me
Why do I feel fear?
Every waking hour
I know You're so near
Every waking hour
Every waking hour
Every waking hour

Will You please hold me
Don't let me go
Please take me in Your arms
I need to know
Why do You love me
In sacrifice
How could You offer me
Your very life?
In every waking hour
You are so near
In every waking hour
I knew You're, I, I knew You're
In every waking hour
In every waking hour

Three Seconds

Resurrection Band - SILENCE SCREAMS - © 1988

They got him bangin' his head again
The family fights but who cares when
Crack party waitin' in the street
Where hell is heaven and nothin's free

They'll be comin'
They'll be searchin'
They'll be lookin' for him that's for certain

Pick up his jacket with the colors on
Pick up his girl and the gig is on
Tough boys in a squad car scene
And he ends up downtown wearin' prison green

They'll were comin'
They'll were searchin'
They'll were lookin' for him that was certain

He was a loser
They got him
Three seconds and the jury was in
Bad dope, bad shot
Bad rap and it was prison he got  
He was a loner
He got sack (?)
Three seconds and his life on the line
An old song, in his ears
Amazing Grace for him and then came the tears

My love, won't leave you alone
My love, will carry you home

There was a scene in his cell again
They tried breakin' his will again
But he ain't really under their command
He knows the freedom of another Plan

They'll be comin'
They'll be searchin'
They'll be lookin' for him that's for certain
Jesus comin', angels searchin'
They'll be lovin' him long
That's for certain

You Get What You Choose

Resurrection Band - SILENCE SCREAMS - © 1988

Where have we been and where are we goin'
And who really cares?
A trip to the moon, a tryst in the desert
We fall down the stairs

Somebody wins, and somebody loses
It's up to you
Someone's fool and someone is a fighter
You get what you choose

Moses to Paul, Samson to Delilah
It's all the same
You sell out or you put out
And it ain't no game
Scars on our hearts and mud on our faces
On network tv
A passion for success, a love affair with money
It's time to get on our knees

All the talk in the world
It don't mean nothin'
Even when intentions are good
God send His Son to make us be honest
Not just to make us feel good
Nothin' is worse than a self-centered liar
And sometimes that's me and you
But for everyone involved we gotta change
That the world can know He is the Truth
