Song Squawk – Pain

In the mid nineties, I had a little red Buick and a big ol’ bass box in the trunk, and would listen to “Christian Rock”, cranked to 11.

(What did you say?  Huh?  Can  you say that again, I didn’t hear you….)

I have gotten away from that genre for many reasons, the least of which may be a loss of hearing, but some songs have stuck with me over the decades.

The artist’s I listened to sought to reflect Scriptural teaching for the most part. They ranged from “preaching” pop culture religion to significant theological teaching. As I listened to the lyrics, I found some to be quite challenging.

To be honest, I listened because I could justify the rock beat with “sanctified lyrics”.

Occassionaly I will post a song, supply the lyrics and make a comment or two. If you decide to listen to the tune, turn the speaker down unless you are already deaf. Some of the songs tend to have a certain “volume” about them!


This post will consider the song

Pain – by Grammatrain

At first the bass line had me. (Remember the bass box in my little car – this song vibrated the road!) Besides the bass line, this song speaks!

As we travel this world with faith in the Master, I have learned that the teaching of the prosperity gospel is empty, void and so deceptive.

When I became a believer, to be victorious meant always a smile, success, great feelings and never admitting to weakness, or to the tensions in the believers life that are so real.

If you are a beleiver, understand that faith lives in suffering and the pain of a broken world. Grammatrain nails this concept. I personally have experienced some difficult times internally lately, and need to look to the Master in the mist of them.

This song hit me today!

I find through every ounce of pain I feel
That my mind cannot deny that God is real

I have referred to this group once before (Execution – by Grammatrain), and will likely direct you to them again. They are awesome! This song hits home in so many ways. If you are struggling, take a listen, and read the lyrics. So much tension!

Take a listen!

Pain – by Grammatrain

I wish that I could say I am a perfect man
I wish sometimes that I would not be who I am
One day I decided I would think on this
Not knowing if faith and pain could co-exist

Could I ever on my own conceive
Of someone I did not know, but I need?
I must be made to be at peace and communion
‘Cause there must be some place
Somehow from where I have fallen

I find through every ounce of pain I feel
That my mind cannot deny that God is real

The inconsistency of what I say I should be
Compared to what I am in actuality
Leaves me in conclusion that I know the way
Though I am unable to always obey

Nothing in this world has satisfied
My soul’s hunger for a deeper life
The weight of my misdeeds were crushing, blinding me
And I still live with pain inside but now I can see

And I find through every ounce of pain I feel
That my mind cannot deny that God is real

The pieces of my life are scattered on the floor
I stared at them till I could take no more

I do not deserve to be set free
Forgiveness is what I desperately need
If it wasn’t for the perfect blood was shed
Would I not be dead inside but I live now instead

I find through every ounce of pain I feel
That my mind cannot deny that God is real

I find through every ounce of pain I feel
That my mind cannot deny that God is real

I know my faith’s still here
Believe through all my tears

Let me know what you think of the lyrics, and of the tunes!
