Song “Dreams For Sale” by artist Cool Hand Luke (song and lyrics)

Song: Dreams For Sale.
Artist: Cool Hand Luke.

LYRICS:
“Out here it’s live and learn,
so you can rush and earn,
a piece of this pie.
It’s work today and rest tomorrow,
but it’s never tomorrow.
until we die.
We strive to find contentment,
and so often we miss it,
when it’s knocking at the door.
We’re too busy to open up,
busy with other stuff,
so we go on as before.

Like a pencil you hold dear,
but you lose behind your ear.
You won’t find it ’cause it’s already here.
You can’t see it with those
eyes so tightly closed.
It’s right here in front of your nose.

What are we fighting for?
Are the spoils of war,
all they’re meant to be?
We strive for 401k,
but we could make a trade,
for eternity.
Put down those papers,
put down that phone.
Put down those fake diamond and imposter cologne.
Yes, there’s contentment.
No, it’s not free.
You have to lay down your anxiety.

If you were trying to end change,
you’re wishing for the grave.
This is the flux of things,
in the rain you will get wet.
And there is trouble yet,
this is how we pay our debt.
Running past the things you want,
it was always here.
You just closed your eyes and couldn’t see it.
Open your eyes.
You’ll see it’s still here.
But you can’t chase this world and find contentment.

It has a face, it has a name.
Jesus Christ.
What if I told you,
you could live forever,
if you’d lay it all down?
What if I told you,
you could live forever?
Just lay it down.”

Song “Sing for You” by artist Cool Hand Luke, with lyrics.

Lyrics:
What do You want me to do?
If I knew I swear I would
Anything You ask me to
Can I only know that it’s You who’s asking?

Sing, I’ll just sing for You
When I don’t know what to do
Wait, I’ll just wait and take heart (Ps 27:14)

Why is it so hard to move?
I can trace my choices back to fear
What do You want me to do?
Like a bison, run into the storm

Oh, take it over

Lyrics to song “The Balancing Act” by artist Cool Hand Luke.(+song at bottom of post)

I’ve got to climb to the top
Never stop til I reach it
Til I feel that I’m good and that I’m in control
Of life and my thought
When I’m not I still preach it
Cause they’re all gonna see if I start to fall or lose control
I’m losing control of this

I’ve been balancing on suspended pianos
And trying to appear composed
It makes the loudest noise when they begin to crash
With eyes on me I force a laugh
You come to me and set me free

Cross my arms across my chest
This is not a gift I can accept
But I appreciate the sentiment
I worked too hard for righteousness
To just lay down while You hand me this
And put my faith in something You call grace
From You

I’ve been lost inside a cave without a lantern
At every sound I start to run
Feel my way around the dark without a pattern
If I would wait You’d come
To rescue me and show the way

Cross my arms across my chest
This is not a gift I can accept
But I appreciate the sentiment
I worked too hard for righteousness
To just lay down while You hand me this
And put my faith in something You call grace
From You

Son, you’re trying to earn
What is far beyond you
Son, you’re trying to earn
What is freely given

Every time that you try to just reduce
This to a give and take
You spit in My face
And tell Me that this blood was shed in vain
