Most valuable thing learned from a song?

Recommended Posts

Sometimes a shadow dark and cold 
Lays like a mist across the road 
But be encouraged by the sight 
Where there's a shadow, there's a light 

Sometimes it's good to look back down 
We've come so far - we've gained such ground 
But joy is not in where we've been 
Joy is who's waiting at the end


-Road to Zion, Petra 

What's your favorite??

Hell's Gates by Wrathchild Amrerica

When you see me comin'
and you hear my cry
you see the look of fear
and the chill in my eye
 
you play the killers game, all the faces have no names
he'll come to hunt you out and he'll live to cut you down
now your god can't help you, you are on your own
he'll drag you through the fiery gates to bow before his throne
 
Satan waits
at hells gates
Desecrate
pain, torture, hate

Destruction lies far down below
Hells gates are filled with fire
Love has no hidden meaning
You're cursed and damned a liar

Satan waits
at hells gates
Desecrate
pain, torture, hate
 
Live in hatred die in grief
Challenging my disbelief
Burning flames are boiling my brain
Lucifer inflicting the pain

Wretched life that didn't matter
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
You lie decaying your final chapter
Your misused soul lies in his clutch
 
You got nowhere to run got nowhere to hide
There's turmoil all around you like
The coming of the tide
Now you can't help but wonder
About your after life
When you wake up dead
Horns or halo, burn or fly
 
Live in hatred die in grief
Challenging my disbelief
Burning flames are boiling my brain
Lucifer inflicting the pain

Okay I'm gona get stufff, but I love Jesus so much :wub:

We Need Jesus- Petra 

When will the world 
See that we need Jesus? 
If we open our eyes 
We will all realize 
That He loves us 
When will the world 
See that we need Jesus? 
When our hearts are as one 
And believe that He's the Son of our God 

The Lord is our God 
And we shall never want 
The Lord is our God 
And we shall live forever 
When we share the love of Jesus 
See each other as He sees us 
Then His love will see us through 
His love will see us through 

When will the world 
See that we need Jesus? 
When sister and brother 
Love one another as one 
When will the world 
See that we need Jesus? 
Will we ever understand 
Jesus is the Son of man? 
We must live in the shadow of His love 

When will the world 
See that we need Jesus? 
If we open our eyes 
We will all realize 
That He loves us 
When will the world 
See that we need Jesus? 
When our hearts are as one 
And believe that He's the Son of our God 

When will the world 
See that we need Jesus? 
When sister and brother 
Love one another as one 
When will the world 
See that we need Jesus? 
Will we ever understand 
Jesus is the Son of man? 
We must live in the shadow of His love

"Wine, Women An' Song", though to be fair I drink beer. 

You should really give wine another chance.

Petra Fools Gold 

Some say this life is only foolishness 
No waiting pot of gold in the faith that I possess 
But the treasures of this life will slowly turn to dust 
And this fool will find His gold in the Savior that I trust 

Fool's gold it's waiting in a crown 
Fool's gold in a city coming down 
I'll leave the gold I can't afford 
For the higher prize I'm pressing toward 
I'll preach the foolish cross of Christ 
And wait for my reward 
Fool's gold 

The wisdom of the cross is easy to receive 
But only foolishness to them that don't believe 
They may say that I'm a fool for the cross that I proclaim 
But the gold that I must seek won't be found in earthly fame 

When the crowns of gold all lay before His feet 
Then the worthy Lamb of God is the treasure we will keep 
Some may call me foolish some may call me odd 
But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of men 
Than a fool in the eyes of God

Ha! The words I'm always sticking to-Petra just has amazing lyrics!! 
                            :D

Yeah but beer tastes better ;)

Oddly enough, she's actually right, Karpetface. I always thought you were male? :unsure:

Anyway, not sure I've really learned anything valuable from a song, if I'm being honest. But I learned some pretty cool things from the Steel Panther albums that I'd previous not heard before, lol. I was not aware of 'The Shocker' before...

Listening to some "Firehouse" today. The first tim I heard this song it moved me. 25 odd years later it still does. Great song and great message, although it is easier said than done.

speaking about food and learning, I remember learning what a vegemite sandwich is from a Men at Work song, though not sure how valuable that is :)

That's what my mom said! She had an Australian classmate and she brought a jar to school. My sister had me try some- it's very salty and not my favorite. But that's pretty cool!

Never have it straight out of the jar. Try a small amount on a slice of buttered toast.

    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.
