A Life to Come

04:54

The Finite Beings

Nicholas/DePaola

Lyrics

Where did I come from?

This place seems so strange

I look up at the sky

Just floats around in space

There's all these other people wandering around

I often interact with them

With this voice that makes sounds

And all along I'm thinking

Why are we here?

There's so much confusion, So many tears

So many tears...

 

 

Deep in the heart of man we desire the things that decay

If we don't guard our hearts we give in and wither away

I'll invest it all in a life to come.

 

 

Help me be grateful for what I hold to be true

My call for answers have all led me to You

So much of this world seems to throw away

The guide of Your Word and the promises You've made

I still continue thinking "Why am I here?"

I was so lost and blind for so many years

So many years...

 

 

 

Deep in the heart of man we desire the things that decay

 

If we don't guard our hearts we give in and wither away

 

I'll invest it all in a life to come

I'll invest it all in a life to come

I'll invest it all...

 

 

For the Weary

The Finite Beings

Nicholas/DePaola

Lyrics

I've been kicked when I'm down

I was in a blind free fall

I followed the crowd

I've been ignorant to it all

 

 

This world pushes you from the Way

There's no room for neutrality

You keep drifting further away

Your a victim to reality

 

 

There's a good that I see in all of us

But we don't have a lot to show

There's a good that I see in all of us

But we've got a long way to go

 

 

I know that many are weary

This world has a way of beating you down

And some may be angry

Searching for a light that cannot be found

In the midst of this darkness

It's been pursuing you all along

Stop using your eyes

And open your hearts as you sing this song

 

 

There's a good that I see in all of us

But we don't have a lot to show

There's a good that I see in all of us

But we've got a long way to go

 

 

Submit to the Divine

03:50

The Finite Beings

Nicholas/DePaola

Lyrics

For all the times I've tried I found a way into submission Who ever said you can't omit pride Must have been suffering with the same conviction You hold on to me while I am weak You hold on to me... I've grown to know You and its Your will above mine I submit to the Divine, Divine, Divine, Divine, Divine For all the times I claim victory Remind me that It's not through my deeds Help me view myself more humbly As through repentance you meet my needs

You hold on to me while I am weak You hold on to me... I've grown to know You and its Your will above mine I submit to the Divine, Divine, Divine, Divine, Divine And while this world walks away The devil reigns I will focus on you The One who remains.

Imaginary Things

03:23

The Finite Beings

Nicholas/DePaola

Lyrics

I've fallen into the pit of imaginary things I've come out of the darkness and the emptiness it brings But was it ever real? Was it ever real? I believed in the creations of my mind And I clang to them Yeah I sang to them Let me see, Let me grow Show me things that I didn't know Make me feel, Make me stronger Give me a pill to make my life a little longer I've fallen into the pit of imaginary things I've ran around in circles Lost grasp of everything I was told it wasn't real I was told it wasn't real I believed in the creations of my mind And I clang to them Yeah I sang to them

Let me see, Let me grow Show me things that I didn't know Make me feel, Make me stronger Give me a pill to make my life a little longer Sometimes you have to examine yourself And bow down to ask Him for His help So I clang to them While I sang to Him I sang Let me see, Let me grow Show me things that I didn't know Made me feel, Made me stronger Gave me a pill to make my life a little longer

The Hole

05:44

The Finite Beings

Nicholas/DePaola

 

Lyrics

In his hole as he lies

With darkness creeping on the light he was seeking

He comes to realize

The hole he dug is too deep and the climb is too steep

He cries out to the sky

"I alone demise, I alone demise"

 

Oh he sees dreams of another life

Where his soul hasn't faded away

And he hopes of being reconciled

Alone he stands in his way

I pray

Pray for a change

 

My sanity I must find a vitamin for my mind

A cure of some kind

 

In the depths of his heart

He doesn't know where to start

He is torn apart

Time is ticking away

He doesn't see the light of day

He's been led astray 

He must get up and rise, He must get up and rise

 

Oh he sees dreams of another life

Where his soul hasn't faded away

And he hopes of being reconciled

Alone he stands in his way

I pray

Pray for a change

 

My sanity I must find a vitamin for my mind

A cure of some kind

My sanity I must find a vitamin for my mind

A cure of some kind

 

I've begun to recognize my way out came with a price

I've begun to recognize my way out came with a price

 

Make A Decision

03:23

The Finite Beings

Nicholas/DePaola

Lyrics

I could twist You into a god of my making

But You will still remain the same

I could try to manipulate Your words for my desires

But then I would never change

 

I could turn a blind eye

Or I could turn to You

 

I'm at a fork in the road

And the dust and the wind keep clouding my vision

And it all starts to fade as I stand there in a daze

Make a decision

 

I could follow the trend of this dying world

But wicked hands spread the disease

Pity myself with all these excuses

Be false light nobody sees

Nobody sees...

 

I could turn a blind eye

Or I could seek the truth

 

I'm at a fork in the road

And the dust and the wind keep clouding my vision

 And it all starts to fade as I stand there in a daze

 Make a decision

 

I could turn a blind eye

Or I could turn to You

 

Brother

Lyrics

Brother, where are you?

You're nowhere to be found

Brother, where are you?

I'm afraid You're not around

 

Drain me

Oh drain me dry

So I can't feel the rain when It's falling down

 

Brother, where are you?

Did you leave us behind?

Brother, where are you?

Standing outside of time?

 

Drain me

Oh drain me dry

So I can't feel the rain when It's falling down

 

And as I look at the sky

I remember all of the times

When we both pondered this life

We're a rare breed you and I

Well I guess when it rains it pours

Struggling even more....more

Well no more...

 

Where did you go? (Where did you go?)

I don't know

Where did you go? (Where did you go?)

A Taste Of Conflict

06:04

The Finite Beings

Nicholas/DePaola

Lyrics

A taste of conflict fills the room

Each man becomes consumed

Ideas and opinions

Tension begins to loom

If we could only come together

And agree on the path to choose

 

Is there any way we can open a door

To something more than a hopeless oblivion

Would You keep us in line, shape our hearts and minds

Help us to find a way out of oblivion

 

A taste of conflict fills the air

We aren't getting anywhere

It keeps us on our toes

What comes next no one knows

If we could only find the answer

Can the music flow on its own?

 

Is there any way we can open a door

To something more than a hopeless oblivion

Would You keep us in line, shape our hearts and minds

Help us to find a way out of oblivion

 

Is there any way we can open a door

To something more than a hopeless oblivion

Would You keep us in line, shape our hearts and minds

Help us to find a way out of oblivion

Spirit Driven

Nicholas/DePaola

Lyrics

I was a sight for sore eyes In my mind the light wouldn't shine Erased my horizons I lay desolate on this beach of mine I was in need of something Far beyond what I truly knew Create my horizons Spirit driven, I give myself all to You Just when I hit rock bottom You showed me who I had become He dwelled in me from above If you had told me that I would believe in the Bible I would have said, "Isn't that obsolete, used for mind control to enslave the gullible and weak?" Wisdom and understanding Would you keep my soul in line? Strengthen my horizons So I can follow You home and never die Just when I think I know it You show me that there's so much more to learn Guided me from my birth If you had told me that I would believe in the Bible I would have said, "Isn't that obsolete, used for mind control to enslave the gullible and weak?" Forgive me I knew nothing (Guide me home) Forgive me I knew nothing

 

 

Rejuvenate Me

04:26

The Finite Beings

Nicholas/DePaola

Lyrics

Disregard me

I know what I do

I put myself ahead of You

I try to be faithful, I try to be strong

I try to understand how You've known me all along

You've known me from the start

 

Please forgive me

I'm set in my ways

I've walked down that road that rots and decays

I wanna shine Your light

Break the dark and give sight

I look up to You to make things right

You promise to use all things for good

 

Rejuvenate me

I grow numb to the world

Its so hard to feel in a world so cold

Rejuvenate me, Rejuvenate me

Will You answer my call?

 

Will You answer my call?

Will You answer my call?

Will You answer my call?

Stairway to Hell

Nicholas/DePaola (Parody of Led Zeppelin Stairway to Heaven)

Lyrics

 

There's a man who has sinned

As his eternity begins

He's walking down the stairway to hell

When he gets there he'll see

Many come but no one leaves

He hears the gnashing of teeth and the weeping

 

And he's walking down the stairway to hell

 

There's some writing on the floor

That leads to a door

It says "My words have only one true meaning"

In the mind of the man 

He understands what he can

But he never gave the words an interest

It makes me wonder, It makes me wonder

 

There's this feeling I get

That sends shivers down my spine

And my soul cries, "Lord forgive us"

In my thoughts I have gone

To find meaning and behold

It leads me to the one with pierced hands

It makes me wonder, Really makes me wonder

 

And it's wisdom thats formed

Through fear of the Lord

From what He spoke we can come to reason

As our days come to an end

We can have hope through who He sent

And the gift is free for all who accept Him

 

If we are separated from Him due to our sin

Then lets restore by repenting

Yes there are things that hold us back

But in the end all

If He is for us who is against us?

And it makes me wonder

 

Now there are two sides fighting for you

In case you don't know

We can decide which one to join with

We all have headed down that stairway

And in the same way

We can take the high road less traveled

 

And as we walk up that high road

We feel the Spirit fill our souls

There's the man that we all know

Greatest story ever told

And if we open up our hearts

It doesn't matter where we start

We were all broken and torn apart

Now lets step out of the dark. Now lets step out of the dark.

 

I was walking down the stairway to hell...

Stubborn Creatures

03:04

The Finite Beings

Nicholas/Depaola

Lyrics

 

Look at all of our faces
Slobbering, greedy beings
Hoping we all will be saved
From the world and its new beginnings

Want to be entertained?
Nothing learned and nothing gained

Oh we truly are stubborn creatures…

Using our imaginations
We know it all…seems so fitting
Ignoring all the instructions
We know it all…who are we kidding?

Want to be entertained?
Nothing learned and nothing gained

Oh we truly are stubborn creatures…
Oh we truly are stubborn creatures…

God cant open up to everyone if all that we do
Is dissolve in our problems that we got ourselves into
Can’t open up the heart if the mind is of neglect
The walls intertwine and the paths intersect

Oh we truly are stubborn creatures…
Oh we truly are stubborn creatures…
Oh we truly are stubborn creatures…
Oh we truly are…

Utterances

03:17

The Finite Beings

Nicholas/DePaola

Lyrics

 

Let’s unleash the utterances
Utterances…Utterances
Let’s unleash the utterances
Utterances…Utterances

Feeling alone…
As if an emptiness haunts you
With each passing breath you grow a weakness inside
You’ve been compromised and you don’t even realize
Oh, I’ve been there…

Now is the time to rise
And break through these chains that bring you down to size
There’s a truth to be found

Feeling hollow…
As if your skin and bones reflect who you are
More than your mind and your soul
You are paralyzed…No remorse in your eyes
Oh, I’ve been there…

Now is the time to rise
And break through these chains that bring you down to size
There’s a truth to be found

(utterances)
Feeling alone as if an emptiness haunts you
(utterances)
With each passing breath you grow a weakness inside
(utterances)
You’ve been compromised
You’ve been compromised
You’ve been compromised.

Grasp of its Hold

04:52

The Finite Beings

Nicholas/DePaola

Lyrics

 


One of these days all will be known
Beyond what I’ve seen, beyond what I’ve shown
One of these days I’ll see myself clear
They’ll be no misunderstand, miscommunicating, blindness for the seeking
In here…

I try to grow
I try to show that the weakness in me is like a pest running ragged through the world
And in due time I’ll take what’s mine, leave my agenda behind
Because I’m choking on the grasp of its hold

One of these days my possessions will decay
I gain more and more just to watch them fall away
One of these days I hope to grow wise
Break me out of my shell
As I look up to the sky
From down here…

I try to grow
I try to show that the weakness in me is like a pest running ragged through the world
And in due time I’ll take what’s mine, leave my agenda behind
Because I’m choking on the grasp of its hold

And so this story goes
I can wonder but who really knows
If the door I’m trying to get to is open or closed

This worldly fixation throughout the population
We need a destination over here
This worldly fixation throughout the population
We need a realization down here..

Awaken the Night

06:08

The Finite Beings

Nicholas/DePaola

Lyrics

 


What’s there to do?
What’s there to say?
If I can’t love you the night is my day

I wake in the evening
Have breakfast at night
Dreaming when the sun comes out
Afraid of the light

Does anyone know how to heal the pain?
Is there anyway to start again?

I’m so tired and I’m so wired
Well I’m so tired and I’m so wired

Nothing can change me
There’s no where to go
Is there an answer? (yes)
What don’t I know?

The moonlight is shining
It helps me forget
All of my sorrows
And things I regret

I’ll never know how to heal the pain
There is nothing you can say to start again

I’m so tired and I’m so wired
Well I’m so tired but I’m so wired…

Let’s awaken the night!

And so the nights drag on
As my mind drifts further away
Drifts away…Each passing day (repeats)

The Weeping

Want some music?

How many of us go with life?
How many of us grow with life?
How many of us go with life?
How many of us grow with life?
