Track Name: Never Coming Home
A sad story that I’m telling you
A simple thing you should never do
She’s was looking at her phone
Now she’s never coming home

She was just a girl only seventeen
She was living her American dream
Everything always seemed to go her way
Little did she know this was her last day

Driving her car in the pouring rain
She was heading downtown to Fourth and Main
She sent a text to momma don’t stay up and wait
I’m going to a concert and I’ll be home late


She was looking at her phone
Now she’s never coming home
Her momma never ever got to say goodbye
She just would not see it could take her life

She read a message from her best friend
Told her she’d be there but didn’t know when
She started texting out her reply
She never looked up and crossed the center line

She was looking at her phone
Now she’s never coming home
Her momma never ever got to say goodbye
She just would not believe it could take her life

A sad story that I’m telling you
A simple thing you should never do
Put down your phone it will be ok
Put down your phone and live another day
She’s was looking at her phone
Now she’s never coming home
Track Name: Foolproof
I see you heading down a dead end street Walking away from Me
Your not who you were meant to be Why are you ignoring Me

If you knew the gift of love and that I gave my all for you

I got the key to your ball and chain Are you crying to be set free
Don’t you know you can give me all your pain Why are you rejecting Me?

I dare you to ask me what you should do Is it so hard to believe?
Could it be I just might answer you Why aren’t you asking Me?

If you knew the gift of love and that I gave my all for you
I set you free on Calvary, what more can I do?

You can run around in circles for another day Or open your eyes and see?
Or I can show you the easy way Just open your heart to Me?

If you knew the gift of love and that I gave my all for you
I set you free on Calvary, what more can I do?

You’re still heading down that one way street Running away from Me
Your not who you were meant to be Why aren’t you listening?

I got the key to your ball and chain Why won’t you believe in me?
I’m offering you a great exchange A fool proof guarantee

Are you sick and tired of struggeling Why are you rejecting Me?
I’ll give you a brand new song to sing Why are you scared of Me?
Why are you ignoring Me?
Don’t you want to be free?
Track Name: Words
Words cut like a knife Speak in peace or strife

You can win or lose With the words that you choose


Make up your mind If your words are cruel or kind

Think before you speak The better off you’ll be


What more can I say You don’t listen anyway

Like one and two is three You’re blind and cannot see


The writing’s on the wall And pride goes before a fall

I know that you may not care But he truth isn’t always fair


What are you saying now Why do you think outloud

You should hear yourself right now Why do you think outloud
Track Name: Left Behind
I went to church the other day
What did the preacher say

When you go to sleep tonight
Better make sure your life is right


Later that night I went downtown
All I do is hang around

Back at home i went to bed
Forgot about what the preacher said.


CHORUS

Doesn’t anybody know
Where did everybody go
Here I stand and wonder why
Would I trade the truth for a lie



A friend of mine he messaged me
I got something you need to read

I said ok but not right now
don’t believe it anyhow


Then he called me back again
Told me it’s not if, but when

He said it’s on the written page
We’re living in the end of days


CHORUS

Doesn’t anybody know
Where did everybody go
Here I stand and wonder why
Would I trade the truth for a lie



So I got my bible out
To find out what it’s all about

I’m just too tired I’d say
I’ll save this for another day


CHORUS

Doesn’t anybody know
Where did everybody go
Here I stand and wonder why
Would I trade the truth for a lie


The next day I turn on my TV
I can’t believe what my eyes see

The whole world has gone insane
I realize now I missed the train

Millions of people disappear
Vanished right into thin air

Now my heart is gripped with fear
All that I refused to hear

The return of God’s only Son
Written in Thessalonians


CHORUS

Doesn’t anybody know
Where did everybody go
Here I stand and wonder why
Would I trade the truth for a lie


Sat bolt upright in my bed
Felt my body shake with dread

Turns out that as real as it seemed
It was only just a dream


Called my friend up right away
Said can you come over let’s pray

Don’t wanna leave my life to chance
Wake me up from out of this trance


Today’s the day I change my mind
There’s way too much that’s on the line

Now my life is right this time
I will not be left behind
Track Name: A Great Gulf Fixed
“There was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day.

But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, full of sores, who was laid at his gate, desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table.

Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

“Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in these flames.’

But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented.

And besides all this, between us and you there is A GREAT GULF FIXED, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’

“Then he said, ‘I beg you father Abraham, that you would send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, that he may warn them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’

Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’

But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’”
