about

This album is about what is going wrong in our nation. The IRS, Benghazi, Obama Care, the Veteran's Scandal - they're all here! It is also about what the true answer is - Jesus Christ and Christian renewal. I know these are subjects one is not to discuss in polite company but it is what we need to hear!!

Track Name: Redneck Revolution
Redneck Revolution by David E Ball

We need a Redneck revolution
'Cause the elite have let us down.
We need a Redneck revolution
To turn this government around.
The Constitution still means what is says.
Can't our leaders even read?
We need all Patriots to take a stand
And keep this country free.
We need a Redneck revolution…
'Cause the Rednecks still believe.

When our leaders won't defend our troops
When an Ambassadors shot down
Attacks watched while they happened live
The President simply lies down
And when the bullets and grenades have stopped
And real Patriots have died
Our leaders watched it all, streaming live
And then tell the people lies!

We need a Redneck revolution
'Cause the elite have let us down.
We need a Redneck revolution
To turn this government around.
The Constitution still means what is says.
Can't our leaders even read?
We need all Patriots to take a stand
And keep this country free.
We need a Redneck revolution…
'Cause the Rednecks still believe.

When our leaders work to confiscate
Any freedoms we have left
And sell their tyranny with lies
Through a health care full of jest
They really never intended it to work
They intended it to pass
And then they strapped a few more trillion on
Our future babies’ backs!

We need a Redneck revolution…etc.
(Repeat Chorus)

Track Name: Who'll Take a Stand
Who'll Take a Stand Words and Music by David E Ball

What can I do to help you understand?
It's gonna take more than a prayer.
It's gonna take people who'll take a stand
and do so much more than just care.
People who'll stand up for what they believe -
living their lives by the Word.
Willing to confront their culture and fears,
proclaiming truth 'till it's heard.

Who'll take a stand and be counted with Christ?
Who'll stand with Him before men?
Who's gonna counter the enemies lies?
Where are the Godly men?
Who'll take a stand for Him?

What can I say to convey such a need,
society dies more each day.
Though we have the answer, we keep it within.
Why don't we share Christ, today?
As people willing to stand up and state
what we believe unashamed.
Willing to enter in public debate,
wisdom we've gained in Christ's name.

Who'll take a stand and be counted with Christ?
Who'll stand with Him before men?
Who's gonna counter the enemies lies?
Where are the Godly men?
Who'll take a stand for Him?

What if it takes more than saying a prayer?
Pray by all means, but what then?
What if the Father in answering our prayers tells us,
"You are my answer!" What then?

Who'll take a stand and be counted with Christ?
Who'll stand with Him before men?
Who's gonna counter the enemies lies?
Where are the Godly men?
Who'll take a stand for Him?

Track Name: Why Have We Treated Them This Way?
Why Have We Treated Them This Way Words & Music by David E Ball

When the children of this nation
Fight a war we recommend,
They do so with belief and confidence
That we will never forget them
And never betray
The sacrifice they make for us each day.

As they train for their positions
And put forth both life and limb –
The best an American can give!
For they believe we’ll remember
And never forsake
Those that fall or are injured for our sake.

So why have we treated them this way?
Withholding care that they need ‘till some have passed away.
Why have we treated them this way?
Ignored this one sacred duty and shamed the price they’ve paid!
Why have we treated them this way?

(Interlude)
(Why this way? Why have we treated them this way?)

As a nation that is caring
And concerned for those we send
Into harms way. Our care must both extend
To make them whole who have suffered,
Provide the best that we can give.
Our heroes must be honored, they must live!

With our Commander inattentive,
Congress too inept to act.
Our veterans have been left out on the brink.
They’re more concerned about elections
Than their duty, sworn to keep.
Our veterans pay the price. A nation weeps.

So why have we treated them this way?
Withholding care that they need ‘till some have passed away.
Why have we treated them this way?
Ignored this one sacred duty and shamed the price they’ve paid!
Why have we treated them this way?
Why have we treated them this way?

Track Name: No, Mr. President
No, Mr. President Words and Music by David E Ball

I’m having trouble with the IRS
But it’s not taxes causing the unrest
But the blatant attacks by political hacks
Trying to silence what I still believe.
I always thought in the land of the free
We could express our ideology
Without being construed as corrupt or confused
By a rouge, bullying agency.

No, Mr. President, I do not believe
That you have the right to misuse bureaucracy.
When I was young I was told they work for both young and old –
Yes, for all of the citizenry.
No, Mr. President, I do not believe
In the IRS enforcing on me
Illegal laws our Congress never foresaw
‘Cause they came from your pen and your chats!
No! Mr. President stop! We want our country back.

I’m having trouble with your rule of law
Where you enforce only what you recall
Where you ignore what you like and rewrite what you might –
And do nothing constitutionally.
I believe in equal powers in our land
But you’ve proven that that is a sham.
You do whatever you like – like a “king-royal” might,
But as your boss, I think you should be canned!

No, Mr. President, I do not believe
That you have the right to misuse bureaucracy.
When I was young I was told they work for both young and old –
Yes, for all of the citizenry.
No, Mr. President, I do not believe
In the IRS enforcing on me
Illegal laws our Congress never foresaw
‘Cause they came from your pen and your chats.
No! Mr. President stop! We want our country back.

(Repeat Chorus)

End:
No! Mr. President stop! We want our country back.
No! Mr. President stop! We’ll take our freedom back.
No! Mr. President stop!
Track Name: Honest Enough
Honest Enough? Words and Music by David E Ball

May I be honest enough
to let my weaknesses show.
Let others see
It isn't me
But it's by Your grace, I grow.
For when I am weak,
That's when I'm strong.
So, I will boast in my weakness
For to you I belong.

It's not by might, it's not by power
But by Your Spirit, Lord -
Your love and grace are sufficient for me.
In weakness Your power's perfected,
Your glory is made known
And I'm sustained to follow Thee.

May I be humble enough
to let my trials be known.
Help others feel
This battle's real,
And can not be won, alone.
But when two or more
Gather in His name,
He, too, shall enter their presence.
They, the victory claim.

It's not by might, it's not by power
But by Your Spirit, Lord -
Your love and grace are sufficient for me.
In weakness Your power's perfected,
Your glory is made known
And I'm sustained to follow Thee.

Why do we keep so much locked up inside ourselves,
Afraid that someone else might see our pain?
We must confess our needs to each other
And allow the saints of God to pray in Jesus name!

It's not by might, it's not by power
But by Your Spirit, Lord -
Your love and grace are sufficient for me.
In weakness Your power's perfected,
Your glory is made known
And I'm sustained to follow Thee.

In weakness Your power's perfected,
Your glory is made known
And I'm sustained to praise your name!

Track Name: Dreaming Again
Dreaming Again
Words and Music by David E Ball

I’m dreaming again.
And don’t awake me until Spring comes again.
I’m dreaming again.
I’m dreaming, dreaming!
I’m singing again.
Don’t interrupt me; life’s a tune once again.
It’s not over when
I’m singing, I’m singing!

Why does it seem dreams seem so quick to go?
Well, I do not know. But I’m learning!
Why do we give up so much and so soon,
Like losing life’s tune. But I’m singing.
I’m singing!

Singing again.
Don’t interrupt me; life’s a tune once again.
I'm singing, my friend.
I’m singing, singing!
Dreaming again,
And don’t awake me until Spring comes again.
I’m dreaming my friend.
I’m dreaming, dreaming!
Dreaming again!

(Interlude)

Dreaming again,
And don’t awake me until Spring comes again.
It's not over when
I’m dreaming, dreaming!
Singing again.
Don’t interrupt me; life’s a tune once again.
It’s not over when
I’m singing, singing!
I'm dreaming again!

Track Name: Uncle Sam
Uncle Sam
Music & Lyrics by David E Ball

Well I’m your Uncle Sam doin’ all I can
But feeling rather weak.
You of course can reverse this course
Of our nation on the brink.
Our Founders, way back when; knew we must defend,
Division of government -
Less potentates emasculate
Our freedoms, upon a whim.

So, I will try to clarify
To each and everyone that I see.
That freedom’s cause, enshrined in our laws,
Is being trampled by this Presidency.
(Such lunacy!)

I’ll be a happy man when our system stands,
Three branches still intact.
The casting call for the debtor’s ball,
Rebuked and soundly set back.
Then I’ll be fine and free, our democracy,
Having chosen to rebuff
A lawless cad’s foolish grab
For an uber-presidency.
Get your freedom-stealing paws off of me!
We fought you once before -
Tyranny- You sicken me.

So, I will try to clarify
To each and everyone that I see.
That freedom’s cause, enshrined in our laws,
Is being trampled by this Presidency.
(Idiocy!)

Yes, I’m your Uncle Sam and on freedom stand
With Statesmen who represent
Their people and our Forefather’s plan
In our founding documents -
The Declaration of Independence
The Constitution and (of course)
The people’s consent!

Track Name: What Has Happened in the Land of the Free?
What Has Happened to the Land of the Free?
Words and Music by David E Ball

There once was a time
When none were inclined
To call the Americans weak.
The truth though, is this -
Americans miss
A leader who’ll lead…
And not from behind

So what has happened in the land of the free
And what has happened in the home of the brave
The unfortunate truth
We elected a ruse.
And sadly the whole world has paid

Now terrorists strike
Behead left and right
And no strategy can be found
This passivity
From a nation so free
Is demeaning at best…
Can no leaders be found?

So what has happened in the land of the free
And what has happened in the home of the brave
The unfortunate truth
We elected a ruse.
And sadly the whole world has paid

America needs to lead once again
Return to a common creed once again
Embrace what is right
Revive our true light
And carry the torch of the free
In the land that God gave liberty

So what has happened in the land of the free
And what has happened in the home of the brave
The unfortunate truth
We elected a ruse.
And sadly the whole world has paid
They could not trust us…and so walked away!

America needs to lead once again
Return to a common creed once again
Embrace what is right
Revive our true light
And carry the torch of the free
In the land that God gave liberty

"There once was a time
When none were inclined
To call America weak…"

Track Name: A Beautiful Day (Joshua's Song)
A BEAUTIFUL DAY (JOSHUA'S SONG)
Words and Music by David E Ball

It was a beautiful day to be living.
It was a beautiful day to behold.
It was a beautiful day we were singing the Lord's praises.
It was a beautiful day when you were born.

It's hard to believe what's been given to me --
A wonderful gift so precious, so fine --
A beautiful wife and a newborn baby boy,
But we know the child is ours but for a time.
So we will raise him, and pray for him
And teach him your ways.
And show him our love and the Lords,
For we know the most precious gift that we can give
Is to share with him our faith in the Lord.
Yes, we will share with him our faith
In You, Lord!

It was a beautiful day to be living.
It was a beautiful day to behold.
It was a beautiful day we were singing the Lord's praises.
It was a beautiful day when you were born.

Track Name: Fathers and Mothers
Fathers and Mothers
Word and Music by David E Ball

From a father to his son
From a mother to her daughter –
“I only want the best for you;
The best that life can offer.
So we must let you go –
We’ll let go of each other.”

From a mother to her son
From a father to his daughter –
Though it was hard to watch you grow,
Letting go’s even harder.
But we will let you go
To give your love to another!

As it’s been from the start
Is how it is and ever shall be –
A son shall take a bride
And together build a family.
So we will all let go,
Yet still cling even stronger;
Such is life’s carousel
For fathers and mothers.

From a daughter to her dad
From a son to his mother –
“We love you both so very much
But God’s provided another.”
We’re asking you, “Let love grow,
And embrace yet another.
Love fully one more child,
Dear father and mother."

As it’s been from the start
Is how it is and ever shall be –
A son shall take a bride
And together build a family.
So we will all let go,
Yet still cling even stronger;
Such is life’s carousel
For fathers and mothers.
Such is God’s paradox
For fathers and mothers.

Track Name: True, Noble and Right!
True, Noble and Right!
Words and Music by David E Ball

Whatever is true, noble and right,
Whatever is pure and lovely,
Excellent or praiseworthy –
Think about such things.
Whatever is true, noble and right,
Whatever is pure and lovely,
If it is admirable
Think about such things.

We are living in a world
That is trying to deceive us,
Trying to destroy us,
To drag us down.
But we have a choice to make.
Don’t be fooled, it’s your decision.
Will you live by your convictions,
Or by the ways of the world?

(repeat chorus)

Then what are we feeding our minds?
Is it Truth or degradation, or just worldly imitations,
Or are we reading God’s word?
We have so many things
That keep us entertained –
Like movies, our music and our TVs,
Our laptops, our I-phones, it’s a disease –
Please help us, dear Father, to find our knees
So we can be free.

(repeat chorus)

Track Name: Yield to the Spirit
Yield to the Spirit
Words and Music by David E Ball

Yield to the Spirit.
Yield to the Son.
Allow the love of Jesus
to overcome
the desire to do all
things on your own.
Yield to the Spirit
And live life,
Live life in the Son.

Everyday I look into the mirror and see
A very average face staring back at me
And I'm reminded what Jesus said to me,
"You can do nothing apart from me."

Yield to the Spirit.
Yield to the Son.
Allow the love of Jesus
to overcome
the desire to do all
things on your own.
Yield to the Spirit
And live life,
Live life in the Son.

Another thing I've found to be just as true
When I forget myself and give my all to You
That's when the burdens lift, I hear the Spirit say,
"I've so much more child, yield everyday."

Yield to the Spirit.
Yield to the Son.
Allow the love of Jesus
to overcome
the desire to do all
things on your own.
Yield to the Spirit
And live life,
Live life in the Son.
