Track Name: Underground
There's a steel door, Mama
I used to care about it
But Mama, I don't care about it now
There's a long hallway, Mama, deep underground
I guess I'll lay some footprints down

There's a crystal dream whispering
I can't make the voices stop
Mama, I sit and think about it sometimes
Deep underground, while the clock hands race around
And 'round

And Mama, when I try to write it out in words
I can't find the words, and I can't find the pen
I can't suffocate a cynical laugh
I know you send a useless prayer to heaven on my behalf
So thank you for that

There's a torchlight Mama, through the window of your eye
But Mama, I can't talk about it now
There's a secret scene, Mama, deep underground
I guess I'll lay some footprints down
While the clock hands race around,
And round and round

I wonder, what's a dream for
If not to come true?
What's a door for, if not to open?
What's a torch for, if not to show
The way things really are?

There's a long hallway, Mama
Deep underground
I guess I'll lay some footprints down
Track Name: Carpenter song
Jesus Christ was a labouring man
Worked all day with his own two hands
Worked all day in a carpenter's shop
With a hammer and nails
And a measuring rod

Took his lunch with the people there
Brother worker, and sister fair
Laughing 'neath the olive tree
With jokes and stories, memories

It's just another day, at the carpenter's shop
Just another day, with the son of God
He's making good things for people to use
Talking about the weather, and the local news

See him now, the door he builds
Shapes the wood, and he marks the nails
Carries it through the streets of town
To a customer's house

Watch him set that door in place
When the job is done he collects his pay
A fine strong door, for a winter's night
From hands that set the stars alight

He said, "Blessed are the meek
And blessed are the humble
For you shall inherit the earth."
Track Name: Mourning Turned To Dancing, Sackcloth Into Joy
I will exalt you Lord
For you lifted me out of the depths
You didn't let me go
Didn't let my foes
Gloat over me

When I called on you for help
You restored my health
And you healed me
You raised me from the grave
And in your kindness saved me from Sheol

So now sing you saints
And praise his holy name

For his anger lasts but a moment
But his favour is for life
And rejoicing comes in the morning
Though there's weeping through the night
All my mourning's turned into dancing
And my sackcloth into joy
And you have clothed me with joy

When I felt so secure
Just like a mountain, sure
That I'd stand strong.
Then you hid your face away
Then I was dismayed
And cried out to you

And I cried Lord,
Where then is the gain
In my going to the grave
Down to Sheol
And how will this dust yet praise
How will it proclaim your faithfulness?

So be merciful oh Lord
And hear my plea
Track Name: Two Squeaks in the Night
Two squeaks in the night
That sounded so barely
And right out of the shadow, I guess
Two smart tiny thieves
Snuck 'round our place
And took every trinket, and yes

Mommy moved in her dreamsleep
Because she felt you sneaking away
You were a-scared to get caught, I guess
So you shrunk down to dots and blinked out
It's quiet in our house today

Not much of a man
I passed out on the couch
And snored until the morning, and yes
I missed your debut
Your spectacular death
They'll nail me to the cross, I guess
It's what I deserve, and yes

I slept through it all
I deserve no better than death
But I ask for more
I ask to play with you
To skip past the crooked tree
To spin in the grass
And mostly to run, and never grow tired
My two little thieves and I
In those glorious fields

Mommy moved in her dreamsleep (I slept through it all)
Because she felt you sneaking away
You were a-scared to get caught, I guess
So you shrunk down to dots and blinked out
It's so quiet in our house today
Track Name: Broken
Broken, I'm broken
Broken, so broken
You can see the cracks
Beneath my shiny, happy cover
You can see the cracks
That's where the light shines through

Wheels keep falling off
Again and again
My wheels keep falling off
That's how I know I need you

I've been crucified
On my own cross
That's where you meet me
When I'm weak, then I'm strong

Broken, so broken
I can see the cracks
Beneath your shiny, happy cover
I can see the cracks
That's where the light shines through
The light shines through
Track Name: All the Peoples
God be gracious to us and bless us
Cause your face to shine on us
That your ways be known on earth
And your salvation among the nations

Let the peoples praise, praise you oh God
Let all the people praise

Let the nations be glad
And sing for joy
He rules the peoples justly
Let the nations be glad
And sing for joy
For he guides all the peoples of the earth
So let all the people praise

Then the earth will yield its harvest
And God our God will surely bless
God will bless us and all the ends of all the earth
Will fear his name
Track Name: Hold Dearly To Me
Hold dearly to me daughters
Though I am a jealous storm
A low, and waning god

Hold dearly to me sons
Though I am thin as the mist
And slippery as a bead of oil

Hold dearly to me wife
Though I am faithless as the wind
And distant as a dream

Though it be a sin
To hold too long
Though I flicker in doubt
Before the wind, who is not a wind
Blows me out

Hold dearly to me father
Though I am bony as a fist
Shrivelled as a little-used heart

Hold dearly to me mother
Though I am dying every second
Forgetting names every minute

Hold dearly to me brothers
Though I am hard as a knife edge
Sharp as a criticism

Hold dearly to me sisters
Though I am a house both ragged and torn
And divided against itself
Track Name: Vineyard of Red Wine
Vineyard of red wine
Drinking the blood of Jesus Christ
God's kingdom blossoms and buds
Fills the face of the earth with fruit
The Lord keeps it night and day
Pulls any bitter root
In his vineyard of red wine

Lord we take ahold of your strength
You are our peace
We take ahold of your strength
You are peace
Prince of peace

We're drinking the blood of God
Because in the blood is the life
He poured it out for us
And he's in our hearts tonight
It's his vineyard of red wine
Drinking the blood of Jesus Christ
Track Name: Arise
Arise, oh Lord God of vengeance
God of justice, now shine forth
Rise up oh Lord, and judge of all the earth
Render recompense unto them for their works

So how long for the wicked
How long shall evil ones rejoice?
In arrogance they speak, and they pour forth all their words
So how long will they still vaunt themselves oh Lord?

He who plants the ear, does he not hear?
He who forms the eye, does he not see?
He who chastens nations, will he not rebuke?
Arise oh God of justice, now arise, arise, arise.

See how they crush your people, Lord?
And afflict your heritage?
They'll even slay the widow, and the stranger on his way
As they murder orphans, still you'll hear them say

They say, "See, the Lord doesn't see
The God of Jacob won't take heed"
But now take heed all you senseless
All your thoughts are but a breath
You stupid ones, when will you understand?
Track Name: Hallel
Hallel to the Lord
Praise all you nations
Extol him all you peoples, praise the Lord, Hallel

For great is his love,
His love towards us
The faithfulness of the Lord endures forever, Hallel

Hallel, hallel, hallel, hallelujah
All praise to the Lord
Hallel, hallel, hallel, hallelujah
All praise to the Lord
Hallel
