I really enjoyed the discussion on DFBB. Here the opener for Alarma!


Central Theme

from the album "¡Alarma!"
Words and Music by Terry Taylor
©1981 Paragon Music Corp./ASCAP

Central theme, the most important thing
Central theme, the tie that binds together
Central theme, every line is breathing
Central theme, another heart receiving
Shining in the center, my Lord in the center
Jesus in the center, revolving around Him
Always revolving around Him

Solar screams, I am nothing
Vibrations under the rings, how great you are
Moon like a gong, how great you are

Central theme, the object of affection
Central theme, the core of our perfection
Central theme, moving upward in direction
Central theme, changing musical conceptions
Shining in the center, my Lord in the center
Jesus in the center, revolving around Him
Always revolving around Him

Infinite space, I am nothing
Infant moves in the womb, how great you are
Wind and sea, I am nothing
Ghost of the heart, how great you are

Solar screams, I am nothing
Vibrations under the rings, how great you are
Moon like a gong, how great you are

Who is on the throne you find, the King of Kings
He's the one I have in mind, the central theme
Lord of Lords, Lord of lords, Lord of Lords...




Fairly obvious what Terry is talking about, but anyone got comments? I particularly like the line about changing musical conceptions Big Grin

I like that line too. I don't really have a comment for this one since it is kind of cut and dry but I will say that it is a great tune. I bought Alarma for the first time at a calvary chapel bookstore right when it was reissued on CD. They had about ten copies that ended up sitting on the shelf for years Crying

¡Alarma!

from the album "¡Alarma!"
Words and Music by Terry Taylor
©1981 Paragon Music Corp./ASCAP

It's a brain drain laid down on the reel to reel
The warning of the after life the after birth
And telling how we feel

Alarma, somebody's crying
Alarma, somebody's dying
Alarma, somebody's turning away

Sugar cane in cellophane is playing at the radio station
Laughs out in the gallery believing that it's all elation

Alarma, somebody's pleading
Alarma, somebody's bleeding
Alarma, somebody's turning away

A wise guy in the sky invites you to a guilty party
Won't charge you at the door
But sure knows how to get your money

Alarma, he's pointing a finger
Alarma, he's such a dead ringer
Alarma, somebody's turning away
Somebody's turning away, somebody's turning away
Alarma, somebody's turning away
Alarma, somebody's turning away
Alarma, somebody's turning away

The American Church for the most part is phony. I've was involved in a church that cut the youth funding (because the kids looked too "punk rock" and were not acting like "Christians" ) and put that money into new carpet. Not much has changed since this song was written. I also see churches turning a cold shoulder to the sinner because of the sin. I've seen a lesbian couple pressured to leave a church. I myself have had the church turn it's back on me when I needed them most.

In another thread I mentioned that reaching out to one person on a personal level can do more for the cause of Christ than giving thousands of dollars to the church or a charity. Christians usually take the easy way out and surround themselves with warm happy fake joy while the world dies. Alarma Crying

Most of the songs on this one are pretty straight forward.

"Props" may be an exception to that. A very odd little cool song! Pleased

It seems to be iAlarma! was were DA really become DA, the record they found there voice. Sure they were close with "I love you #19" but it seems like with iAlarma! Terry found DA's purpose. Before that they seemed to be trying to convert the heathen. With iAlarma! the focus is on the heathen church!

As to the Church....yeah, things are pretty screwed up, especially in America. However, it is this community which is so messed up which is becoming more and more important to me all the time. I've come to believe deeply that the Church is where every Christian belongs (not the building- the body). Its screwy that one part of the body always seems to be hurting another part, but it is still essential for each member to be in the body. Unfortunately, and I know many people here have been in circumstances far worse than I've actually encountered, the Church is way to worldly to take care of its own, let alone shine its light in the darkness. ¡Alarma! I pray everyone here will be able to find a local church in which to break the bread and drink the wine (or grape juice, as it may be).

Big Time / Big Deal

from the album "¡Alarma!"
Words and Music by Terry Taylor
©1981 Paragon Music Corp./ASCAP

Beam it on the satellite, send it through the T.V.
Get it on the play list, preach it to the masses

I want the big time, it's not for everyone
I want the long line, to tell them what I've done
Give me a bullhorn, I'll help Your kingdom come
I get all this, and heaven when I'm done

Why stop with the little things, wires cross the continents
The moment of conversion, on the cover of my album

I want the big time, it's not for everyone
I want the long line, to tell them what I've done
Give me a bullhorn, I'll help Your kingdom come
I get all this, and heaven when I'm done

Heard some talk about the big big big big big deal
Can't wait, moving on, can't wait, moving on
Lawyers talking 'bout the long long long long
long long long long contract
Five years, how long?, sign here, moving on

Send a tape to Carson, got a date in Vegas
Start a church in LA., billboard off the freeway

I want the big time, it's not for everyone
I want the long line, to tell them what I've done
Give me a bullhorn, I'll help Your kingdom come
I get all this, and heaven when I'm done
I want the big time, I want the long line
Give me a bullhorn, I get all this, and heaven when I'm done
