Song(s) of the week 27 – Skillet / Jars of Clay

Two very extreme genres of music. But both bands that I have enjoyed in my life journey.

We will start off with the heavier track by Skillet.
A song of their newest album: Rise

Here is the video, Sick of it

Skillet – Sick Of It

If you’re sick
If you’re sick
If you’re sick
If you’re sick of it
If you’re sick
If you’re sick
If you’re sick of it!

When everything you do
Don’t seem to matter.
You try but it’s no use
Your world is getting blacker.

When every time you fail
Has no answer.
Every empty promise made
Is a reminder.

No one can make this better
Take control, it’s now or never!

Are you sick of it?
Raise your hands,
Get rid of it!
While there’s a fighting chance.
Are you over it?
Bored to death?
Have you had enough regret?
Take a stand, raise your hands…

If you’re sick of it!
If you’re sick
If you’re sick
If you’re sick of it!
If you’re sick of it!
If you’re sick
If you’re sick
If you’re sick of it!

Every single day
I chase my own tail
Like a rat inside a maze
Gotta get, gotta get, get away

I’m running out of time
For me to break this.
I’m tired of feeling like
I’m never gonna make it.

No one can make this better
Take control, it’s now or never!

Are you sick of it?
Raise your hands,
Get rid of it!
While there’s a fighting chance.
Are you over it?
Bored to death?
Have you had enough regret?
Take a stand, raise your hands…

If you’re sick of it!
If you’re sick
If you’re sick
If you’re sick of it!
If you’re sick of it!
If you’re sick
If you’re sick
If you’re sick of it!

I’m tired of it
I’m over it
I’m bored of it

Gotta fix this
I’m sick of it!

Raise your hands
If you’re sick
If you’re sick of it
Raise your hands
If you’re sick
If you’re sick of it

A song with a cry for help.  Defintely that generation we’re in has this as an anthem..  There is Someone who hears…

Next song is a lyrics video and is a more mellow song:

(Read the lyrics in the video itself)

I have loved Jars of Clay throughout their career.  their lyrics about real life issues have moved me to my core a few times.

no maps you can rely on
faith and guts to guide you”
