Return of the Revolution

Supertones
There ain’t no stopping us now
I’d like to say that from the outset
Not up in this business just to get what we can get
But bet that
We gonna bring it to you loud and clear
How loud I gotta say it ’fore you people start to hear
I can name our problems
But I know a solution
Bring back the revolution.
The revolution comes and we all stand as one
Rises from the darkness and shines like the sun
As the sun gets higher, our church catches fire
Down from our pride and up from the mire.
It’s a dream that I’ve had and I hope it comes true
I forgot to say the revolution starts with you.
See wisdom and knowledge is one thing that we lack
You’ve been a Christian how long and you’re still on Similac
So I call on Martin Luther and all the reformation, back
Then the common people couldn’t read God’s revelation
You had to be a monk or a priest or read Latin
That was all before the revolution happened
But the fire cooled down ever since that generation
We put down the Bible and pick up the play-station
And we can’t defend our faith ’cause we don’t even know it
We say we love his word but pick a funny way to show it.
The world walks by and we don’t have a thing to say
I call ’em as I see ’em
And that’s what I see today.

Chorus:
The revolution returns.
The reformation lives on.
The great awakening is now.
Sleepers open your eyes!
A war is on, our rally cry is “no compromise”
No compromise, yeah, no compromise;
A war is on, our battle cry is “no compromise.”
So throw your fist up and pray the revolution rise
A war is on, our rally cry is “no compromise.”

Our hearts have grown so cold,
And we’ve such numb souls.
But shirts and bumper stickers
Man we got ’em by the truckload
Is true religion what you have around your wrist
What does the scripture say of this:

They honor me with words,
But their hearts are far away.
I call ’em like I see ’em
And that’s what I see today.
So I call on John Edwards
Who preached us all awake
We try to be emotional but here is our mistake
As a church we lack repentance, and we lack true affection
Not only in our minds but our hearts need correction,
And man that’s true religion, resignation and contrition,
To love each other so much that we’d die before division.

(chorus)

So what about you
Will you join us?
Will you admit that the waters around us have grown?
You better start swimming or you’ll sink like a stone.
Do you stand with us or do we stand alone?
It’s time that we stand up, enlist for the war.
I’ve tasted battle and now I want more;
I’ve known the truth and been cut to the core,
But I’m back in the game to even the score
And I mean to go out with both my guns blazing
Amazed at a God who’s so truly amazing
To triumph in battle as the spirit enables
Can’t turn back the clock but we can turn the tables.

  1. I like it. I wish I felt it more.

  2. I like the updated library too. I’m only 350 some odd pages into The Institutes. It’s so hard to read. He packs so much in so little space. I think I would rather read Owen in some ways. Well, maybe not.
