AwAreness: Wells Without Water

Posted in Gypsy Carns on September 13, 2010 by Gypsy Carns

Today I begin a series of posts regarding the new record we are recording ELIJAH RETURNS on TTM Records, scheduled for a May 2011 release.  It involves End Times topics and relevant lyrics that will speak to this generation.  The first song is called “Wells Without Water.”  It comes from 2 Peter 2: 12-22 where Peter is couseling the congregation regarding false teachers, much like the times we live in today.  Read what Peter has to say: “But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, and will receive the wages of unrighteousness, as those who count it pleasure to carouse in the daytime.  They are spots and blemishes, carousing in their own deceptions while they feast with you, having eyes full of adultry and that cannot cease from sin, enticing unstable souls.  They have a heart trained in covetous practices, and are accursed children.  They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; but he was rebuked for his iniquity; a dumb donkey speaking with a man’s voice restrained the madness of the prophet.

These are wells without water, clouds carried by a tempest, for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.  For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error.  While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage.  For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the later end is worse for them than the beginning.  For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.  But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: ‘A dog returns to his own vomit,’ and ‘a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.'”

WELLS WITHOUT WATER        TTM   c BMI 2010

You teach a lie, with a smiling face.  Deny Christ and His grace.

You lack truth and direction, You lost the LORD and His protection.

Preacher Preacher, talk your jive. Telling people how they’ll survive.

You’re leading lambs  right to the slaughter,  Preacher, Preacher, Wells Without Water

 You interpret God’s word without eyes.  It’s your opinion and your words are lies.

Worldly wisdom – you are proud of,  Divine knowledge comes from above.

Preacher Preacher, talk your jive. Telling people how they’ll survive.

You’re leading lambs  right to the slaughter,  Preacher, Preacher, Wells Without Water

Like a storm cloud void of rain,  Eternal life you will not obtain.

Like a river full of rock and sand,  Jehovah’s wisdom you don’t understand.

Preacher Preacher, talk your jive.  Telling people how they’ll survive.

You’re leading lambs right to the slaughter,       Preacher, Preacher, Wells Without Water
