The church is dead... long live church...



Pitching far too High

All that I know now
I'm pitching far too high
I cannot behold
The gilted angel's robe
The guilted pierced soul
I cannot behold

And the heavens roll
And the trumpets blow
And the sun outside burns this uncertain soul

All my learning stops
Whilst trying to join the dots
That pin-prick the night
Sun streams its life through the glass
Scriptures and sermons elapse
Suddenly, I'm with you
I'm old enough now to decide
To leap out and loosen these ties
But something is grounding me
And it's something I like

And the heavens roll
And the trumpets blow
And the sun outside burns this uncertain soul

What an amazing way to 'do' church! Jesus Himself was found so often eating with His friends. Love the video, the colour, the idea of a French bistro in church (cool or what!), the music is fantastic. Loved it! H

Curse you again! You have caused my minister's stipend to wither still further...

Greetings Heather! Yes, a wonderful understanding of how things could be... a fantastic band with such a holistic approach to everything they create.

Cheers Graham, just keeping you on your toes!

Best, PB
