Live for HIM (FAWM Song)

We’ve been blind to our true selves for so long
Living in the coldness of the world
We have forgotten what’s it’s like to be on fire
We have accepted that mediocrity is the way that we should be
We have rejected our heart’s true desire

But there’s a better way for us to live our lives
We have the power to turn ourselves around
If we can leave behind the things that once brought us happiness
And get away from all the mess,
We can truly listen to the holy sound

Live for HIM, live for HIM
Turn your back on your old life and reach for the cross
Live for HIM, only HIM
There’s no other way that I can say it
You need to face this truth
You must live for HIM

We need to remember what it was like
To be living a truly joyous life
Now it’s time to banish the happiness, as it’s only temporary
It’s time to let the true light shine through

Live for HIM, live for HIM
Turn your back on your old life and reach for the cross
Live for HIM, only HIM
There’s no other way that I can say it
You need to face this truth
You must live for HIM

(instrumental break)

Live for HIM, live for HIM
Turn your back on your old life and reach for the cross
Live for HIM, only HIM
There’s no other way that I can say it
You need to face this truth
You must live for HIM
Live for HIM
Live for HIM
Live for HIM
Live for HIM
Live for HIM

Taking Back My Life (FAWM Song)

My whole life, everyone has controlled me and told me what to do
They said I was retarded, I shouldn’t think for myself
But I know better than to live like that, no matter what they say
I guess the time has come for me to break away
and…

I’m taking back my life from those who want me gone
I’m taking back my life from the demons who want my soul
I’m taking back my life from the diseases that want to destroy me
I’m taking back my life
I’m taking back my life from the lies they say about me
I’m taking back my life from the sins that want to trap me
I’m taking back my life from my mind that wants to control me
I’m taking back my life, I’m taking back my life

They say that I should dream of freedom
Yet they’re the ones keeping me as a prisoner
But do they know how much I want to be free
From the miserable life that I have…

Before we go any further, I have this to say
You say you’re tired of your life and people have hurt you and called you bad names
You say you want to get away from this life and do whatever you want
But I’m sorry, dear, but life doesn’t work like that, you have to learn to roll with the punches
You’re born the way you’re supposed to be born, and no amount of magic is going to change that
So give up your silly dreams of freedom, give up your dreams of escape
You will never be healed, in fact, you are your parents’ worst mistake…

So I have to roll with the punches, I have to give up my dreams
I have to be happy with people abusing me?
That’s not the way God wants me to live
In fact, he’s giving me the power to break free from my cage
and…

I’m taking back my life from those who want me gone
I’m taking back my life from the demons who want my soul
I’m taking back my life from the diseases that want to destroy me
I’m taking back my life
I’m taking back my life from the lies they say about me
I’m taking back my life from the sins that want to trap me
I’m taking back my life from my mind that wants to control me
I’m taking back my life, I’m taking back my life
I’m taking back my life
I’m taking back my life
I’m taking back my life
I’m taking back my life

Not Just Another Christian (FAWM Song)

Everyone says that a Christian should tolerate other people’s lives
But I don’t think that’s right
Everyone says that a Christian has no place in the world
And that’s why we have so many problems today
Everyone says that a Christian should stick to their own kind
But then again, you’re cutting Christ out of your life

They say that Christians should be tolerating,
But tolerating’s not what we’re here to do
But as for me, I’m going to be
What everyone doesn’t want me to be…

I don’t want to be just another Christian
I want to be something more
I don’t want to be what everyone else wants a Christian to be
I want to do something extraordinary
No, I don’t want to be just another Christian

They say that we’re becoming Christianish
We say we follow Christ, but we tolerate the sins of the world
This is not the way that we’re supposed to live
Believe me when I say that

I don’t want to be just another Christian
I want to be something more
I don’t want to be what everyone else wants a Christian to be
I want to do something extraordinary
No, I don’t want to be just another Christian

Let’s be honest here, we’re not really Christians
Not if we continue to follow the ways of the world
Let’s take our worldly ways and throw them away
Let’s start living like the Christians we say we are…

I don’t want to be just another Christian
I want to be something more
I don’t want to be what everyone else wants a Christian to be
I want to do something extraordinary
No, I don’t want to be just another Christian
I don’t want to be just another Christian
I don’t want to be just another Christian
I don’t want to be just another Christian
I don’t want to be just another Christian

The War

Not all wars are fought on the battlefield. In fact, some wars are often fought at home.

Such as my ongoing war against myself.

I already saw what happens when people try to go against what is normal in society and attempt to redefine what society considers “normal”. Most of those people who try to redefine “normal” often take their own lives because they don’t like what they’ve done and they can’t face the sins they have committed.

But I’m stronger than that.

Yet, I fight a daily battle against the person that says it’s OK to be gay, bisexual, transgender, or transsexual. I must fight against a culture that’s starting to tolerate these kinds of behaviors. All I know is that I would rather die than give in to the demons that surround me.

I won’t give up and I won’t give in, no matter what they do or say.

Prompt #8: A story set during a war.

A Life Worth Living (FAWM Song)

Live Your Life Be Free (song)
Live Your Life Be Free (song) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I see my life and know something wrong with it
I don’t have much in material possessions, but I don’t have what other people take for granted
I wish I had never been born at all
But I know I have to find a way…

I want to have a life worth living
I want to have something to strive for
I don’t want to be just another handout
I want to live a life that I want to have

I hate the life that I’m living
I hate the world I’m forced to live in
Is there no chance for me to escape?
I need to find a way to break out of my routine…

I want to have a life worth living
I want to do something worthwhile
I don’t want to be just another charity case
I want to live a life that I want to have

God, are you there, can you hear me
I don’t like the life I’m living
It seems like the road I’m on
Is at a dead end and I’m stuck
C’mon, God, I need something new
Get me out of the life that is my prison
Take me to a place where I can be useful
I want to have a life worth living…

I want to have a life worth living
I want to have something to strive for
I don’t want to be just another handout
I want to live a life that I want to have

I want to have a life worth living
I want to do something worthwhile
I don’t want to be just another charity case
I want to live a life that I want to have

True Hero (FAWM Song)

I don’t need to wear a cape or have super powers, but I know I can save the day
I may not be the strongest or the smartest, I may not even be the best-looking, but if someone needs my help, I will be there
If you have a problem and no one wants to help you, just call my name and I will come…

Because you need a hero, a true hero, you can’t do anything by yourself
We all need help with our problems, we need to put our pride on the shelf
You need a hero, I need a hero, everybody needs a hero
Not just another costumed crusader, but a true hero

I don’t want a man in a mask coming to save me, and I don’t want to save myself, but I need a hero and I’ll hold on until that hero comes
I’ll save you and you’ll save me, we can save each other, that’s all there is
We need each other in order to survive in this cruel and unforgiving world…

Because you need a hero, a true hero, you can’t do anything by yourself
We all need help with our problems, we need to put our pride on the shelf
You need a hero, I need a hero, everybody needs a hero
Not just another costumed crusader, but a true hero

A true hero never gives up, they keep going when life wants to crush them
We don’t need capes or superpowers, but we can always save the day…

Because you need a hero, a true hero, you can’t do anything by yourself
We all need help with our problems, we need to put our pride on the shelf
You need a hero, I need a hero, everybody needs a hero
Not just another costumed crusader, but a true hero…

Heaven (FAWM Song)

The road of life has gone on for far too long
I’m so weary, I can’t do it anymore
I wish that I could just give up now
But to give up is to be a fool

I want to leave this mortal plane behind
There just is no place there for me at all
There’s a shining golden city that I know awaits me
And I have so far to go before I’m there…

Take me to heaven, the one place where I truly want to go
Take me to heaven, I only want to see the city of gold
The world is not our home, God has a better place for us in mind
One day, we will meet him in heaven, and heaven is where we’ll stay

The road of life has gone on for far too long
And I have many miles to go before I sleep
I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow
But I know that no matter what, life isn’t certain

Take me to heaven, the one place where I truly want to go
Take me to heaven, I only want to see the city of gold
The world is not our home, God has a better place for us in mind
One day, we will meet him in heaven, and heaven is where we’ll stay

Take me to heaven, the one place where I truly want to go
Take me to heaven, I only want to see the city of gold
The world is not our home, God has a better place for us in mind
One day, we will meet him in heaven, and heaven is where we’ll stay
