about

Originally released in 1989 on cassette only, this rare follow up to 1987's breakthrough album "Shaded Pain" marked the beginning of Blonde Vinyl Records and a new standard for labels in the Christian underground. Rereleased on cassette and CD in 1992 made the album more available to the public but the production lacked the power of "Shaded Pain".
J. Powell at Steinhaus Mastering has brought new life into this Post-Punk masterpiece! There will be a noticeable difference from the moment the drums come in on "The Bomb"! You will rediscover that every track on this album is a "greatest hit"!
CD and vinyl options available soon!
Michael Knott has done a fresh new painting for the album cover since we were unable to locate the original paintings.

Track Name: The Bomb
The judgement and the jury are waiting for the bomb to fall
The preacher and the teacher have all felt the call

The bomb
The bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb
The bomb
The bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb

It'll hit you high, it'll hit you low, from your body to your head
You'll want to stand and scream, "It's a wonderful thing," but you'll be on your face instead

The bomb
The bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb
The bomb
The bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb
Oh, here comes the bomb

Pythagoras and the Mathmatist have got a theorem for serums
And the baby that flies in the Aegean skies has got nobody to steer him

The bomb
The bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb
The bomb
The bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb, the bomb
Oh, here comes the bomb
Oh, yeah
The bomb, the bomb, the bomb
Track Name: Ocean Blue
Hey, Mr. Leader, I know how you need her to follow your every whim,
But she’s docile and fragile; so willing for you to tell which way to give in,
You mislead the masses, you turn them to ashes, and they blow away
You mislead the masses, you’re taking your chances,
This mockery lay will pay.

I see you under the ocean blue,
And I’ll see you under the ocean blue.

Hey, Mr. Breather, your breath is a Caesar, tying her hands behind
You’re a ruthless viper, waiting to kype her,
This time you’ll control her mind,
You mislead the masses, you turn them to ashes, and they blow away
You mislead the masses, you’re taking your chances,
This mockery lay will pay.

And I see you under the ocean blue,
And I’ll see you under the ocean blue.

Take that millstone around your neck, tie it much tighter,
Cast your body into the sea; if not for her, for me.

And I see you under the ocean blue,
And I’ll see you under the ocean blue.
Track Name: Touch
With my hands held high in the Caspian Sky, I try to catch a drop of your love,
But the longer I try, the hotter the wire inside - I've been spinning enough,
I'm gonna crack in two if I can't get next to you,
I know you're living inside, but the river that flows passed my soul,
Now I'm in a desert that's dry.

Oh, I'm standing here, waiting,
Oh, I'm not asking for much.

What I want is your touch - that's all I want,
Your touch - that's all I want.

Now, if a baby asked me for bread, I wouldn't give him a stone?
How much more do I mean to you?
So I'm on my knees, begging you please,
Won't you gimme, gimme something new?

Oh, I'm standing here waiting,
Oh, I'm not asking for much.

All I want is your touch - that's all I want,
Your touch - that's all I want.

Yeah, ooh,
Yeah, ooh.
Track Name: House Of Love
So groovy to be your friend,
Oh, yes,
I'll be your friend,
Let me hear this.

I was living in the gloom of a groom, groom, zoom,
I'm in a room and I get 'em a clue,
I need a home; I don't wanna be alone,
Dinner time, looking to find,
Room zoo, in the zoo, zoo, blue,
I was so blue and nobody was there,
Blue too, another room,
How far to go?

Oh, I'm in the house of love,
I'm in the house of love,
I'm in the house of love.

????

Oh, I'm in the house of love,
I'm in the house of love,
I'm in the house of love,
I'm in the house of love.

Love, love, love,
Love, love, love,
Love, love, love,
Love, love, love,
Love.

Oh, I'm in the house of love,
I'm in the house of love,
I'm in the house of love,
I'm in the house of love,
I'm in the house of love,
I'm in the house of love,
I'm in the house of love.

Love.
Track Name: Revival Nineties
It's the dawning of a decade,
It's the end of the push and pull,
It's the bringing of a new day with thoughts from the pillow,
It's a mirror time emotion; except for it's real,
A common life, devotion,
Shout out the way you feel.

Revival nineties.

It's the coming of a new way,
It's the starting of the give and get,
It's the end of a blue day, with thoughts from the common guilt.

It's a mirror time emotion; except for it's real
A common life, devotion,
You shout out the way you feel.

Revival nineties.

No more pushing,
No more pushing,
No more pushing,
No more pushing,
Emotion.

Revival nineties,
Emotion, emotion,
Emotion, emotion...
Track Name: Carry Me To Cairo
Two miles east of the Nile, near the cattle ground which is five miles 'round,
Treasure is found hiding in a hideaway,
There is gold, riches, exotic wines buried beneath the triangle shrines,
And though the pharaohs are dead, the ruby bed is shining in red.

Carry me to Cairo,
Carry me unto the riches of old.

Richer than the treasure is a story that's true,
The brother, small, who ruled them all,
And when the famine came, they Pharaoh gave him everything,
They stuck him in a hole, they sold him away to a caravan that passed that day,
And though they sold him for dead, they were at his feet, begging for bread.

Carry me to Cairo,
Carry me unto the riches of old.

Carry me, oh, to Cairo,
I said, carry me unto the stories of old.

Carry me to Cairo,
Track Name: Come Alive Again
Wake up, come alive again,
Wake up, come alive again,
I tell you why,
Wake up, come alive again,
Wake up, come alive again,
I tell you why.

Your daddy was a preacher and your mamma was a teacher,
But you didn't want to listen from the oh-pay-oh,
Daddy was a preacher and your mamma was a teacher,
But you didn't want to listen from the oh-pay-oh.

Walk it to the minute, and you walk it to the mile,
And you walk it to the minute on the oh-pay-oh,
You walk it to the minute, and you walk it to the mile,
And you walk it to the minute on the oh-pay-oh.

Wake up, wake up, come alive again.

Wake up, come alive again,
Wake up, come alive again,
I tell you why,
Wake up, come alive again,
Wake up, come alive again,
I tell you why.

You walk it to the minute, and you walk it to the mile,
And you walk it to the minute on the oh-pay-oh,
You walk it to the minute, and you walk it to the mile,
And you walk it to the minute on the oh-pay-oh-oh,
Your daddy was a preacher and your mamma was a teacher,
But you didn't want to listen from the oh-pay-oh,
Daddy was a preacher and your mamma was a teacher,
But you didn't want to listen from the oh-pay-oh.

Wake up, wake up, come alive again,
Wake up, wake up, come alive again,
Wake up, wake up, come alive again,
Wake up, wake up, come alive again,
Wake up, wake up, come alive again,
Wake up, wake up, come alive again,
Wake up, wake up, come alive again,
Wake up, wake up, come alive again.
Track Name: Dancin' In The Kettle
There once lived a man: his name was Abednego,
Meshach, Shadrach, tossed into the inferno.

The kettle was hot,
The fire, it burned,
They all fell down as their love had turned,
They were there,
Oh yeah, oh yeah.

Dancing in the kettle,
Oh, oh, oh.

When you're holding me tight,
Make me feel alright, singing,
I get a little closer, lose all composure.

The kettle is hot, like the world that turns,
We all fell down as the love hit learning,
Oh, yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.

Dancing in the kettle,
Oh, oh, oh.

The fire is hot,
The fire, it burned,
They all fell down as their luck had turned,
Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.

Dancing in the kettle,
Oh, oh, oh.

Dancing in the kettle,
Dancing in the kettle,
Dancing in the kettle,
Dancing in the kettle,
Dancing in the kettle,
Dancing in the kettle,
Dancing in the kettle.
Track Name: I Need You So
The clock it ticks, like clicking sticks, when I'm not by your side,
I get so cold, I feel so old; there is no place to hide,
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 A.M. - I'm out so late tonight,
You lie awake, and wait for me to come home to your side.

I'll never go away,
I need you so, I need you so,
I'll never go away, no.

No matter how tough it gets - we, baby, we'll be strong,
Don't you ever get in your head I'll ever do you wrong,
Wendy, baby, don't you cry,
I love you so much, it's true,
I need you.

I'll never go away,
I need you so, I need you so,
I'll never go away, no.

Oh, yeah, oh,
Coming home,
I'm coming home soon.

I'll never go away,
I need you so, I need you so,
I'll never go away,
I need you so, I need you so,
I'll never go away,
I need you so, I need you so,
I'll never go away, no.
Track Name: Nineties Tease
Shirley MacLaine will go insane and get lost on Channel 3,
The Japanese Tsar will golf to par and steal the American dream.

Nineties,
Nineteen nineties,
Nineteen,
Nineteen nineties tease,
Nineties,
Nineteen nineties,
Nineteen,
Nineteen nineties tease.

Jimmy, Tammy, Swaggart, and the rest are all back having a ball,
But the I.R.S. will make a mess when they break the non-profit wall.

Nineties,
Nineteen nineties,
Nineteen,
Nineteen nineties tease,
Nineties,
Nineteen nineties,
Nineteen,
Nineteen nineties tease.

It's all be coming up roses, except for the ones with holes in their noses.

Nineties,
Nineteen nineties,
Nineteen,
Nineteen nineties tease,
Nineties,
Nineteen nineties,
Nineteen,
Nineteen nineties tease.
Track Name: Wakin' Up The Dead
Waking up the dead...I love it,
I heard the words that you said, and I want it,
Bring on the gospel hour with a holy shower,
To the dead and cold, to the spiritually soiled,
Waking up the dead...I love it.

It's like a sweet...it's like a sweet perfume,
It's like a sweet...it's like a sweet perfume.

Waking up the dead...I want it,
I read the words that you said, and I want it,
Bring on the gospel hour with a holy shower,
To the dead and cold, to the spiritually soiled,
Waking up the dead...I love it.

It's like a sweet...it's like a sweet perfume,
It's like a sweet...it's like a sweet perfume.

Waking up the dead,
Waking up the dead,
Waking up the dead,
Waking up the dead,
Waking up the dead,
Waking up the dead,
