Story

It seems that the world's bottom line is always the Almighty Dollar. It is the ultimate goal in the world. As Christians, we set our sights on the high prize of Eternal Life through Jesus Christ.  Big Business is a song that reminds us to be careful not to get caught up into the worldly things. 

Lyrics

BIG BUSINESS

THEY WANT YOUR MONEY TO SAVE YOUR SOUL

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO REACH A GOAL

DO THEY CARE IF YOU'RE PART OF THE FOLD

OR DO THEY JUST WANT YOUR SILVER AND GOLD

 

THEY SIT IN FRONT OF THEIR ELECTRIC BOX

GIVING THEIR MONEY, BONDS AND THEIR STOCKS

DO THEY CARE HOW THEIR MONEY'S SPENT

OR DO THEY THINK IT'S ALL HEAVEN SENT

 

THERE'S GOING TO COME A DAY WHEN WE WILL REALIZE

WHAT THEY'VE BEEN TEACHING US IS REALLY ONLY LIES

ONE DAY WE'LL STAND BACK BETRAYED BY A KISS

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO ADMIT IT'S ALL BEEN BIG BUSINESs

 

THEY SIT UPON THEIR VELVET THRONES

EAT THE MEAT THROW AWAY THE BONES

DECISIONS THEY MAKE SEEM UNREAL

HOW DO THEY KNOW HOW THE HOMELESS FEEL

         

MAKING THEIR WAY UP THE CORPORATE LADDER

WHO'S HEAD THEY CRUSH DOESN'T SEEM TO MATTER

BUT ONE DAY THEY'LL TAKE A STEP AND THEY'RE GONNA MISS

AND THEY'LL JUST SEE IT'S ALL JUST BIG BUSINESS

 

CHRIST NEVER SAID FORGIVENESS WAS BOUGHT

IT GOES AGAINST EVERY THING THAT HE TAUGHT

WHY GIVE MONEY TO A MILLIONAIRE

LET HIM USE HIS MONEY TO STAY ON THE AIR

 

MAKING THEIR WAY UP THE IVORY TOWER

DOING ANYTHING TO GRAB ALL THE POWER

THEY GET TO THE TOP AND THE EXPENSE IS ON US

BUT ONE DAY WE'LL SEE IT'S ALL JUST BIG BUSINESS

Story

 God Won't Let You Down

Written as a response to a young person's need to understand the concept of an All-powerful God that can help us overcome any situation.  The idea that friends and family can come and go in our lives at anytime, the thought that the Almighty is always there for us and will not let us down.  It is an anthem song with a message.

Philippians  4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest,whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure,whatsoever things are lovely,whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

 

Lyrics

 
BAD TIMES ARE BEHIND YOU, GOOD TIMES ARE UPON YOU
IT'S TIME TO START YOU LIFE AGAIN
ALL THE PAIN AND PERSECUTION SUBSIDES IN RESOLUTION
IT'S A BRAND NEW WORLD TO LIVE IN NOW
 
I KNOW THAT PART OF THE PAST WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU
BUT  IT'S WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT THAT WILL SEE YOU THROUGH
YOU'VE GOT THE CHANCE TO DO IT RIGHT
CAN'T YOU SEE THE TRUTH IS IN THE LIGHT
YOU CAN MAKE IT WORK THIS TIME AROUND
WHEN YOU KNOW THAT GOD WON'T LET YOU DOWN
YOU'RE LIFE HAS BEEN CONFUSION A TOTAL LIFE OF ILLUSION
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'VE GOT TO DO
THE CHOICE IS YOURS NOT HIS OR MINE BUT IT'S TIME TO DRAW THE LINE
EITHER WAY IT'S ALL UP TO YOU
 
YOU'VE GOT THE CHANCE TO START YOUR LIFE AGAIN
JUST DON'T GET CAUGHT UP INTO THE WORLD OF SIN
 
SO WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO WITH THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
WILL YOU SERVE GOD OR ARE YOU GONNA SERVE MAN
WE'VE GOT TO TAKE THE CHALLENGE AND USE OUR AGENCY
IT'S UP TO YOU AND IT'S UP TO ME
(TO FIND A ) BETTER WAY SOMEONE WHO MAKES IT ALL RIGHT
  BETTER WAY THE TRUTH IS IN THE LIGHT
  BETTER WAY IF YOU STEP OUT IN FAITH
  BETTER WAY A BETTER WAY TODAY

Story

Here's our first single.  1988 and 1989 were two exciting years for Lucid Dreamer.  More than the founding of the band, the end of 88 and into 1989 saw the release of the band's first single.  "Charlotte" was a song written in response to a blossoming love.  David's musical pen couldn't stop writing about Charlotte and the first song from him about their trip to Six Flag's Holiday in the Park was picked as their first single.  Rock and Pop combine to give you this happy little tune.  Recorded at Patrick McGuire's Studio in Arlington, Jessie plays drums while David handles guitars, bass and vocals.  Copyright 1989 by Lucid Dreamer Publishing and produced by David for DEN Productions, this is the remastered version.  

Lyrics

CHARLOTTE

 

LAST NIGHT'S GOING 'ROUND IN MY HEAD

I KEEP THINKING OF THINGS WE SAID

DIDN'T SLEEP BUT AN HOUR OR TWO

COULDN'T STOP THINKING ALL ABOUT YOU

 

WE SPENT THE HOLIDAY IN THE PARK

ROMANTIC EVENING IN THE PARK

THE LOOK IN MY EYES I KNEW YOU KNEW

I WAS FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU

 

MY HEARTS BEATING FASTER MY HEADS IN A SPIN

I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU AGAIN

 

CHARLOTTE YOU'VE GOT THE PERFECT SMILE

AND YOUR EYES THEY SAY IT ALL

CHARLOTTE WHEN I LOOK AT YOU

I CAN'T HELP BUT FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU

 

SOLO

 

MY LOVE'S ON THE LINE FOR THE FIRST TIME

I'VE GOT TO KNOW IF YOU'LL BE MINE

 

IT'S GETTING HARDER ALL OF THE TIME

TRYING TO KEEP YOU OFF MY MIND

GOT SOMETHINGS I NEED TO ASK

THE BIGGEST ONE IS WILL THIS LAST

 

I DON'T LOOK AT OTHER GIRLS ANYMORE

I FOUND THE ONE I WAS LOOKING FOR
