Lyrics, Poetry by Zeph Daniel

I was sad
trying to find my way across
from the truck stop to the diner
and what I found
People didn't even know they were alive
So I healed them all
I healed every one at the truck stop.

The power of God
has healed them
The Lamb
has healed them

Outcast
I healed them but they wouldn't go
I might as well go drown myself
take to the highway
nobody knows me and no one will
but I heal them across the way

A thousand miles of dust out there
a healing...
I'm here to heal the land
all of this

They don't believe it
I know you don't want the answer

I walked across the desert there were trucks with people in cages screaming:
"What happened to the 3rd rock from the sun?"

so I looked down the road
and I found a guy in a pickup truck
he didn't have any cargo
and I said, "I heal you!
You can now see!
You were blind but now you see!"

And in the city there were people
scattered everywhere,
and I said,
"You are healed in the Name of Jesus.
All of you."

They said collectively
"We don't want it. Take your religious garbage, get out on the road, bum
keep walkin'..... "

So I walked into the desert
And started laughing
hahahahahah, hahahahaha, hahahahah
And I started dancing

Undulating (Waves of Love) - The Mystery Remains 

by Zeph Daniel

Undulating_Waves_Of_Love_X_512.jpg

It’s all stripped away now

everything I thought

has come to naught

 

Everything I believed

is hearsay on my sleeve

forgetfulness is my friend

forgetfulness endure

homeward bound

forgetfulness

it’s the one thing I can count on

even if induced

 

It’s the one thing, one thing

I can’t live without

 

Undulating waves of infinite love

cascading through the universe

and something incomprehensible

revealed to those who wait

but one can never go back to tell the others

 

Undulating waves of love

from which the worlds are born

Undulating waves of potential

where all things come from

 

Terrifying

All consuming

The movement a dance throughout forever

coming and going

entering in 

and mysteriously disappearing

all of which is language

all of which is spoken 

all of which is sung

all of which a frequency

cannot be discovered

the mysteries note

the mystery of it all

resides in the opening

and the closing

 

the coming and the going

without ceasing

without beginning or end

without form or shape

fully conscious and awake

long before everything began

and then long after it went away

the mystery remains

it’s the mystery of love….

War Drum (Stand Up For Yourself Mix)

War Drum (Stand Up For Yourself Mix)

By Zeph Daniel

 War_Drum_04_21_2018_X512.jpg

Coming for you

I and mine are coming through the window 

Take what you have 

Stand up for yourself 

Stand up for yourself 

Stand up for yourself 

Stand up for yourself 

 

They met in secret 

They weighed in the balance everything 

you should know 

 

So they saw you in the alley with all that firepower 

you took 'em out with machine gun fire 

you disrupted their meeting 

you froze their bank accounts and kept it a secret 

And now... 

 

After the sneak attack you're declaring victory 

Marxist death notice 

Marxist death notice 

Comin' for ya! Comin' for ya! 

 

Commie Rat 

Street sweepers, 

anti aircraft 

guns poison, 

every other weapon of war.... 

Beat war drums, beat, beat, beat

CRUMBLE CAKE - KELLIE ROWLEY, ZEPH DANIEL

CRUMBLE CAKE 

They want us to eat a crumble cake, a crumble cake.

I like crumble cake but not so much anymore. 

It gets everywhere. 

Wake up in the night, 

you can't sleep, can't get it right, 

all those thoughts they peruse down in the darkness 

where you are used as fodder like your son and daughter. 

 

It's 5 g on the line, we're streaming wild now in time. 

I can't live like this anymore, I can't take it anymore, 

I need release, I need some peace 

I can't take this anymore, they want us lying on the floor, 

begging for mercy, begging for mercy. 

 

Echo, echo, echo chamber. Circle jerk. Feedback loop. 

 

It's a myopia of trigger words enforced. 

Sharp sting of the vaccine, your pineal gland purification. 

 

Plato's cave. 

Modern slave. 

Do you get it? 

Do you get it now? 

I can't live like this anymore, 

I can't take it anymore, 

I need release, I need some peace. 

I can't take this anymore, 

 

they want us lying on the floor begging for mercy, 

begging for mercy, begging for mercy. 

But I won't beg for mercy cause I see who we are.

ONLY ONE

ONLY ONE

BY ZEPH DANIEL

ORIGINAL RELEASE FEBRUARY 21, 2009

I made a podcast out of this presentation of a new track in a my own dubstyle--using elements

from Dub Reggae (melodica, echo device), and mixing in other elements including soundtrack

dialogue. It is pretty hard-core and I was picturing a certain apocalypse and at the same time

the people of Jah (Jesus, Yahweh, Yahushua, Elohim YHWH) returning.

Both chaos and joy -- hope you enjoy it. For those with certain trained ears, TURN IT WAY UP...

but watch the deep bass, it will break your windows

FIND

FIND 

by Zeph Daniel

A long distance to FIND what we are looking for... but the mistake is not to set out in the first place.

To find is key, to have is golden. A Zeph Daniel ambient cinematic spiritual track, with narration.

Lyrics

What good does it do a man to gain the whole world but to lose his soul....

to lose everything...what does it profit a man to gain it all and lose the One, the Life, what does it

profit a man to win .... ooooh

And then I saw the highest mountains, the lowest valleys, the depth of the seas and everything in

between and all the stars and all the past and all the future, and then I understood

And so he searches far and wide to find the One, the one thing that would make all make sense, that

one last chance, that one last effort, that one last sojourn, that one last ounce of faith...

Find it or die

Find from Zeph Daniel on Vimeo.

ASTRAY_BEAUTIFUL_FALSE_HOPE_02_15_2018_X512.jpg

Lyrics

From the beginning of time

putting it on the line

to go tomorrow

gonna solve a mystery

the eternal ones have called me

They know the way

Out of the strife

Slavery

To a new beginning

Beyond the shore of strife

From the beginning of time

putting it on the line

to go tomorrow

gonna solve a mystery

(they took me to a gate)

The eternal one has called me

(Nothing like we thought)

Nothing like we knew.

FABLE FREAKO

FABLE FREAKO

By Zeph Daniel

Hi... hey this is a good place to write stuff.  You know, I use sound and music to capture the

prevailing situation, or capture that moment we are going through... this is VERY unusual, BUT

COOL too... if you wait long enough you'll hear my voice--talking about being framed by a porn

star.  Hmmmm... a lot or reality seems simulated and I'm trying to stop that here.  -Zeph

SPEAK THE TRUTH

"Speak The Truth - Kellie, Michael and Zeph" 

Song Notes:

There was a question that came in the early hours while I was thinking about our young people.

How are they getting through this strange time we live in? Michael and I mulled over this in

conversation. And this song came forth. His guitar says much of what the angst in my gut felt

and then Zeph brought his drums and amazing production skills into the mix and brought what

was in our hearts to fruition. It's amazing! 3 people. One in Santa Fe NM, one in Brisbane Australia,

and another in Rocky Mount NC, making music together like we were making bread.

We hope you enjoy! - Kellie Rowley

SPEAK THE TRUTH

Lyrics 

There's a million lies whispering in your ear

They're coming through the airwaves and that's why you are here

This is the time, make up your mind

You can change your world

But first you gotta open your heart

And speak the truth inside

 

Speak the Truth, live the truth

Speak the Truth, don't be afraid, don't lie to yourself just speak the truth

 

Where are you going to in the search for your meaning

What have you gone through and is the past all its seeming

Oblivious, it's just us

Found in the wreckage of humanity

But what if I told you

Theres a way to keep your sanity

 

Chorus

They say open your 3rd eye

I say open up your heart

Question everything

Divide the light from the dark

And be brave, don't just behave

Laugh at the demons in their faces

Give your kindness willingly

Keep the bitter roots in their places. 

Chorus

NOW YOU GO (To The End Of The World)

NOW YOU GO (To The End Of The World)

By Zeph Daniel

NOW_YOU_GO_TO_THE_END_X512.jpg

I tell you, we’re going wrong

I tell you, we’re going wrong

We’re going wrong

 

We’ve gone beyond

all our grace

It’s the summation of all I knew

If you’ll be judged by your acts on earth

I hope you come out ok

 

I tell you, we’re going wrong

We’re going wrong

 

He sits down at the edge

and weeps the ocean

 

And down the line

 

To the end of the road

To the end of the road

 

Now you go to the end of the world
