Stuck in my Head…

I am not a big fan of “worship” music. Todays stuff just doesn’t have the gravitas of some of the old hymns, that I love but the hymns didn’t have the musical quality so hymns redone is about my favorite things. That is all just a side bar because this is a song that I LOVE as a worship song but most people will just think it strange. It, however, speaks LOADS to me.

The Insyders
Album: Fight of My Life
The Hunted (Click here to listen)
Warning it is a pretty hard song…

I’m hiding in my secret place Built up in my mind
Searching for the rest that I can never find
My wrists held with metal Shackled to the floor
Torture like this I’ve never seen before
I dream about revenge And how sweet it will be
When you’re locked up in this cage Staring back at me
The colors fade to black darker than my sin
I cannot give up now I cannot just give in
I’m wrestling with a beast I cannot see his face
He spits on me and does not care He puts me in my place
His dictatorship is vile His kingdom built on pain
Pure evil poured on everyone Is how he plays his game

Psychotic, deranged, crazy, insane
Poke me with a stick I’m locked up in this tiny cage
You have me I’m yours treat me how you will
With hate and fear until emotion I don’t feel
You bellow and laugh, turn your head away
And with a snap of the chains Now you become the prey
The shifting of your eyes The shadows my disguise
Stumbling while you run But you can never hide
The terror begins, the hunt is on
The tables seemed to turn I hear the scary song
Or is it just the score Of this movie gone astray
You’ve had my soul on layaway And now you’re gonna pay

Darkness and evil surround me As the hunt begins
Good vs. evil Me and you round one of Armageddon
I’m coming your way so hurry Releasing God’s fury
One Judge no jury Your demise you’ll meet so worry
My sworn enemy by any means I’m gonna Bring you pain
Representing heaven In this life or death game
Maintain my cool though My heart’s like an engine
You had your turn now it’s time for mine, Revenge and
Rage controls my body Your tears are running down
But it is only fitting that You’re the hunted now
So I’ll hunt you down with the Wrath of God within me
Not here to take your life Though you can give it up freely
Hear me in the night as I make you go insane
As my non-stop chantin’ starts To seep into your brain

Dear God, I beg for mercy On the souls that tortured me
I ask that they be shown The grace that You’ve shown me

The end is upon you I’ll release my anger on you I’ll destroy you then you will know that I am the LORD!

For decades and decades You’ve hunted us down
Body count rising or descending to the ground
The concrete jungle closes The silence surrounds
The only thing heard is Your heart as it pounds
Sweat pours from your skull Afraid to turn around
Looking over your shoulder What was that sound?
Sick of it all no more you can take
The running’s slowed down Your spines about to break
My sights lined up you don’t have a clue
Should I make my move, what should I do?
The chase is almost done The oppression forgot
I’ve escaped with my life by the grace of God.

I know it uses some imagery that you don’t expect to hear in a worship song, but it works for me, maybe I am all alone on this one…

It’s just you…

I kid, I kid… I’m with you on the hymnals – but I love the classics just as they are. I do enjoy the remakes as well, but hearing The Old Rugged Cross with electric gitars just doesn’t sound right 🙂

Yo this song makes me want to slam on Lucifer with a baseball bat. No joke they need to make alot more music like this, “christian” music is just too soft now.

My sworn enemy by any means Im gonna bring you pain

Sick…just plain sick. I was tired before I read this song.
