Like Lightning (free) 03:48
They walked up to Jesus with a smile on their face They said ‘we cast out demons in your name’ He said ‘don’t rejoice that the demons obey Instead be glad that the book contains your name’ Coz like lightning, like lightning I saw Lucifer fall like lightning He took Him out to the desert 40 days and nights Tempted Him to jump from an awesome height Showed Him all the nations in his hand He said they’re yours if you’ll just bow down like a man He was accusing the brethren all day and night When the Lord like a thief came and took his bride There was battle between Michael and that serpent of old Called Satan and the devil who deceives the whole world

Fire, Fire (free) 05:20
I don’t want to interrupt you while you lie there in your bed You seem so calm and peaceful but your peace could leave you dead You took the battery from the sensor but the smoke is rising high So awake now from your slumber should you sleep you’ll surely die What sounds like love it could be hate What sounds like hate it could be love Fire fire, fire fire (x2) I don’t want to wake you up I don’t want to lose a friend But I’ve got a message for you That could save you in the end Get out get out get out get out! Your house is on fire! Get out get out get out get out! Your house is on fire, Your house is on fire Love can be unsubtle with its crowbar in its hand I’m gonna knock your door down with the deadly 10 commands Coz I know the way it feels to know your house is burning down If you’re gonna meet the judge don’t do it in your dressing gown

Running On The Wheel (free) 03:43
The city’s calling you to bow down Internet calls you to tune in and log on The promise of freedom has changed You got to be free to be stuck on the wheel The system’s a monster, the system’s a beast Our freedom’s been slain on the altar of peace The prophet’s foretold it our leaders pursue it Grasping the wind they can’t shake off the disease Running on the wheel running on the wheel Running on the wheel waiting to jump off It’s not the fall that kills, not the fall that kills It’s not the fall that kills, it’s just the sudden stop No time to check your compass No time to check direction is sound Red tape and blind confusion Keep you running till you run aground So many voices coming at you The devil got you chasing the wind Selling your soul love and money Taking a chip for the man of sin Keep running keep running keep running oh oh oh oh Keep running keep running keep running oh oh oh oh
4.
Get Up (free) 03:37
Maybe you’re alone like a rolling stone Maybe you don’t know love at all Climbing up the stairs going to nowhere Trying to fill that hole down in your soul Sunday Monday, Monday through to Sunday Still a heart of stone Find no meaning staring at the ceiling Cracks, they’re in the wall Get up, get up, make a new start make a new heart Get up, get up, make a new start make a new heart Get up, get up Chasing after wind trying anything Just to keep yourself from thinking When you need a rock just to stand upon Just to stop yourself from sinking Take a drive out in the car look up at the stars Think about the God that made you Ask the question why think about the cross Think of why He came to save you Sunday Monday, Monday through to Sunday But no heart of stone Find no meaning staring at the ceiling But you’re not alone

There’s a party going on somewhere No one’s going and no one’s there We don’t know when we don’t know where But there’s a party going on somewhere Something’s happening and you’re missing out Loads of actors in a studio somewhere They’re being beamed through the system to your tv screen While we sit here in our chairs It’s gonna be cool, so cool All the coolest people are gonna be there In fact it’s happening now But you’re not there There’s a party going on somewhere No one’s going and no one’s there We don’t know when we don’t know where But there’s a party going on somewhere (x2)

The clock is ticking since ’48 Israel is the last day’s sign These are the days of Ezekiel 37 38 and 39 No Time For Foolin’ Around (x2) It’s no time for playing fast and loose With a devil that knows his trade He got a man with a plan for you Saying ‘are you gonna go my way?’ It’s no time, it’s no time It’s no time for pretending you’re blind It’s no time, it’s no time It’s no time for thinking that there’s time No Time For Foolin’ Around (x2) The Russian president just made a deal He sold a bus load of bombs to Iran It’s a tinder box waiting to go off The devil got the world in his hands

Man on the news he’s saying We’ve all been very naughty We’re pumping too much CO2 into the sky United Nations launching Weapons of Mass Deception The inconvenient truth Turns out to be a lie We all like sheep have gone astray But we don’t care much anyway Man on the television Wearing a shirt and tie He’s speaking soothing words to ease our troubled minds Man lying in a coffin Down in St. Peter’s Square Eyes of the world are watching…such a humble affair We all like sheep have gone astray But we don’t care much anyway

Time O' The Signs (free) 02:15
The Jews are back in their land to stay They ain’t going nowhere coz the bible says 2000 years and we’re back here again It’s a sign of the times, the time of the signs oh yea The Pope says that all roads must lead to Rome But he’d like to make Jerusalem his second home They’d like to build a temple right beside the dome It’s a sign of the times, the time of the signs oh yea Satellites out in outer space If you think you’re free you can still be traced There’s no way you can run away It’s a sign of the times, the time of the signs False prophets and false teachers everywhere you go What is the truth no one seems to know? An increase in earthquakes and volcanoes It’s a sign of the times, the time of the signs, oh yeah Lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala

Be Serious (free) 04:22
I watched the TV and it lulled me to sleep I read my bible and I sprang to my feet It said it’s time to get serious It ain’t no time to be cool Watched Aaron Russo on Google Video And half way through I thought, uh oh here we go I guess it’s time to get serious It ain’t no time to be cool It ain’t no time for doing things that you feel It ain’t no time to be asleep at the wheel People are dying and the world is on fire Wake up my friend don’t fall for some cherub liar oh no! I read the news today it wasn’t so good I read my Bible and I understood That it’s time to get serious It ain’t no time to be cool I realized I’d wasted most of my life Concerned with things that caused me trouble and strife I guessed it’s time to get serious It ain’t no time to be cool Well they took Jesus nailed him up on a tree He said they’ll hate you coz they firsts hated Me Coz what He said was so serious He didn’t try to be cool

Pay no attention to all the connections Don’t join all the dots…too many to mention Don’t follow the money, eat what you’re fed Keep skipping along while you’re singing the song Coz the wicked witch is dead Don’t look don’t look Don’t you know that it’s rude to stare? Don’t look don’t look Keep your eyes glued over there now Get into line and sing it Get into line and sing along Pay no attention to all the commotion Don’t look at the man messing with the buttons Behind the curtain Don’t ask no questions if you value your soul Keep skipping along while you’re holding hands On the yellow brick road Join the revolution against the puppet regime Join the mass delusion that you’re fighting for freedom When freedom ain’t free Imagine there’s no heaven it’s easy if you try Sing along with John, no hell below And above is only sky Tick all the relevant boxes in all the relevant places If you’re gonna read the bible Rip out the relevant pages Don’t pull back the curtain, won’t like what you find Coz the truth is stranger than fiction You’re better off blind

Walk Away (free) 04:18
Looked out my window what did I see? I saw a young man standing there in the street Ignorant of the danger he faced Hook, line and sinker, took the path to her place She said ‘I’ve paid my dues I made my vows I’ve come out on this night and it’s you that I’ve found I’ve made my bed, it’s perfumed with myrrh So come let’s take our fill till the morning comes’ In the dark of the night she’ll fool you (x2) Walk away, walk away Don’t go back to her place coz she’ll lead you astray Walk away, walk away Don’t go back to her bed coz it leads to the grave With her honey lips, her flattering words She fooled him she fooled him She caused him to yield as he went like an ox As it’s led to the slaughter, like a fool to the stocks He’d never conceived he‘d forfeit his life Lips sweet as honey and a tongue like a knife So listen to my words, remember them well Stay far from her path coz her house leads to hell So listen to my words, remember them well Stay far from her path coz her house leads to hell

Good to see the band, fronted by Andy Jennings, who for awhile used the Maccabees moniker back with a new album. 'Weapons Of Mass Deception' has a late '70s/'80s rock feel to it. By which I don't mean heavy gated reverb, electro-pop drums or even bad hairdos. It's more in the song structure, the riffs, the vocals ("Fire" being sung "Feye-urr"), the guitar sounds. The opening song ("Like Lightning") has an acoustic opening that sounds very "Stuck In The Middle With You". Production-wise, it's far more up to date in its crispness and clarity which allows the songs to shine. "Get Up" is pop-punk (1970s not 1990s), with its Buzzcocks intro and riff, Blondie guitar work and Spizz/Devo vocal inflections. I could go on - it's fun spotting the influences: Lou Reed, Jonathan Rickman, Space, Morricone, T Rex, INXS. That said, it's not a pastiche - it's very coherent and is brilliantly done and "Be Serious" is one of the catchiest tracks you'll hear on the radio this year (at least Cross Rhythms radio). If you haven't heard it yet, it features a Lou Reed-style vocal and some whistling (I lie not). All in all, this is one of the most enjoyable albums I've heard for a while. I'll be playing this one again, that's for sure.
