Song Squawk – Mortal Stomp

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”.

Occasionally 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

Mortal Stomp – Ultimatum

How we do groan to be released from the confines of earthly mortality.
To live is Christ to die is gain.
We will be free from this earthly frame.
Lord how we long to meet you in the air.
The dead shall rise first, the living, death shall spare.
Eternally changed, these cloths shall be shed Mortal Stomp, the resurrection of the dead.
Instantly changed to incorruption.
Those who reject Him will taste separation.
The ground it shall open (and) awaken those who sleep.
The Earth in birth pains shall give up her deceased.
Spirit and body will be reunited.
Death has lost it’s sting, the grave its victory.
Eternally changed, these cloths shall be shed, Mortal Stomp, the resurrection of the dead.
Death, Separation, Life, Resurrection. (2x)
Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! (3x)
We shall not sleep, but we shall be changed.
In a moment the last trump shall sound.
No more sickness and no more tears, no more pain and no more fears.
This hope we hold will soon come to pass.
Thanks be to God for the victory at last!
Eternally changed, these cloths shall be shed,
Mortal Stomp, the resurrection of the dead.
Death, Separation, Life, Resurrection. (2x)

Death, Separation, Life, Resurrection. (2x) STOMP!

These guys were hard driving with crazy vocals. I loved this one!

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