Big, Warm, Sweet, Interior Glowing
Affectionately referred to as The Big, Warm Swede in the studio. An expose on elitest, self-appointed visionaries or oracles of God. A call for accountability. A call for Ed to use brushes on his snare.

If You Want To
Two people choose love and change the world in a small way. Romeo and Juliet with a happy ending or Roy and Dale riding a stuffed "Trigger" into the sunset. Eternal resolve.

The new world order vs. the kingdom of God. The unholy work, yer little gawd and the tower of Babel all rolled up into a great big cowpie with a surprise center. It's a message in tongues with no interpretation. It's religious Fahrvergnugen. We all love to say it, but what the heck does it mean? It's every "ism" mankind has ever mindlessly embraced. Yeehaw! Somebody stamp me and pass the jello salad.

I Will Return
Apocalyptic blues in the big city. The Mall All Over the World finally meets the wrecking ball. Christ returns. Metal cocoons sprout flying nuns. (the graves were opened?) Finis.
NOTE: No hallucinogens were taken during the writing of this song.

Tracking the Amorous Man
Story board pictures of divine vs. natural love. Inspired by Barry White and the Bible

Virgin Falls
"We're all sinners and need redemption and you can take that to the bank!", said Robert Blake, former Little Rascal.

Nationalism as religion accompanied by drunken pedal-steel guitar riffs.

Prayer Wheel
The call to shame, sorrow, repentance and prayer on a national scale. The Tibetan practice of building prayer wheels provided some interesting images. "Hey kids, let's have a burger bash and build us a prayer wheel, then we'll get the high-priestess of American culture, Vanna White, to give it a great big spin."

Note to Anna
Everybody loves a mystery and a refreshing beverage. Was it murder? Suicide? A grunion-hunting accident? 'Tis a puzzlement, composed of human frailty and inability to ultimately save the soul. Only Christ can and will.

Father Explains
Taken from the "it's a bad place and I wouldn't want to live there" file. Songwriter imagines he's a young man trapped in the horrors of life, war and death in a third world country.

The Gate of the World
It's the global village and Christ is among the villagers. He's not hard to miss- He's the thirsty child and the homeless, hungry beggar. The grand finale.
