We Want a Righteous Invasion of Truth

‘R.I.O.T.’ Lyrics (2007)
Written by: Carmelo ‘Carman’ Domenic Licciardello & Tommy L. Sims
 
“Webster’s dictionary say a riot is like an unrestrained
Uproar in a public place, turbulent right in your face
With the facts we’re gonna spread God’s Word
And attack every lie you’ve heard

Like the doctrines of men that are still fallen prey
To the silvery sword of God’s Word today
It’s true, we look to Heaven and our mansions in the sky
And it’s true we’ve got the gaze of Eternity in our eyes

But before this Church is raptured
There’s no way we’re gonna leave here quiet
We want a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

Jesus, we’re callin’ on Your name
Jesus, we’re gonna see a change
Jesus, we’re taking on Goliath
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

Righteous, to conform to the Bible
Invasion an armed attack
Of truth, the real state of affairs
Like a church on the move that will not double back

From the fight, ’cause we’re salt and light
And we thrive on Jesus, the theme of our lives
And here’s the spin
Love nothin’ but God, hate nothin’ but sin

It’s true, now’s the time to win nations for the Lord
And it’s true, now’s an hour, the saints must go to war
We’ll preach it, we’ll sing it, we’ll shout it, we’ll cry it
‘Cause desperate times need desperate action
And that means we need a R.I.O.T.

Satan is a madman, a relentless entity
He’s the source of every plague known to the human family
We understand the mortal conflict in which we are engaged
And the gates of Hell come crashing down
When the saints of God begin to praise

Jesus, we’re callin’ on Your name
Jesus, we’re gonna see a change
Jesus, we’re taking on Goliath
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.”

Jesus, we’re callin’ on Your name
Oh, Jesus, we need to see a change
Jesus, we’re taking on Goliath
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

Jesus, Jesus
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

Jesus, Jesus
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

In America, Again

‘America Again’ Lyrics
Written by: Carmelo ‘Carman’ Domenic Licciardello & Michael Omartian
 
“George Washington, Thomas Jefferson
Samuel Adams, First Chief Justice John Jay
Names synonymous with the spirit of our country
Founding fathers of the U.S.A.

Over 200 years ago they shook off the chains of tyranny from Great Britain by divine call
Citing 27 Biblical violations they wrote the Declaration of Independence
With liberty and justice for all

But something happened since Jefferson called the Bible the cornerstone
For American liberty then put it in our schools as a light
Or since “Give me liberty or give me death”, Patrick Henry said
Our country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ

We eliminated God from the equation of American life
Thus eliminating the reason this nation first began
From beyond the grave I hear the voices of our founding fathers plead
You need God in America again

Of the 55 men who formed the Constitution
Fifty-two were active members of their church
Founding fathers like Noah Webster who wrote the first dictionary
Could literally quote the Bible chapter and verse

James Madison said, “We’ve staked our future on our ability to follow
The Ten Commandments with all our heart”
These men believed you couldn’t even call yourself an American
If you subvert the Word of God

In his farewell address, Washington said, “You can’t have
National morality apart from religious principle,” and it’s true
‘Cause right now we have nearly 150,000 kids carrying guns
To these war zones we call public schools

In the ’40’s and ’50’s student problems were chewing gum and talking
In the ’90’s, rape and murder are the trend
The only way this nation can even hope to last this decade
Is to put God in America again

The only hope for America is Jesus
The only hope for America is Him
If we repent of our ways stand firm and say,
“We need God in America again.”

Abe Lincoln said, “The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation
Will be the philosophy of the government of the next”
So when you eliminate the Word of God from the classroom and politics
You eliminate the nation that Word protects
America is now number one in teen pregnancy and violent crime
Number one in illiteracy, drug use and divorce
Every day a new holocaust of 5,000 unborn die
While pornography flood our streets like open sewers

America’s dead and dying hand is on the threshold of the Church
While the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah vex us all
When it gets to the point where people would rather come out of the closet than clean it
It’s the sign that the judgement of God is gonna fall

If there’s ever been a time to rise up Church, it’s now
And as the blood bought saints of the living God proclaim
That it’s time to send the alarm from the Church house to The White House
And say, “We want God in America again”

I believe it’s time America to stand up and proclaim
That one nation under God is our demand
And send this evil lifestyle back to Satan where it came from
And let the Word of God revive our dying land

For Jesus Christ is coming back again in all His glory
And every eye shall see Him on that day
That’s why a new anointing of God’s power’s coming on us
To boldly tell the world you must be saved

Because astrology won’t save you, your horoscope won’t save you
The Bible says these things are all farce
If you’re born again you don’t need to look to the stars for your answers
‘Cause you can look to the very One who made those stars

History tells us time and time again
To live like there’s no God makes you a fool
If you want to see kids live right
Stop handing out condoms and start handing out the Word of God in schools

The only hope for America is Jesus
The only hope for America is Him
If we repent of our ways stand firm and say,
“We need God in America again.”

(repeat)

We need God in America
God in America
God in America again”

Putting America First

“In foreign affairs, we are renewing this founding principle of sovereignty. Our government’s first duty is to its people, to our citizens – to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values. As President of the United States, I will always put America first … We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism… I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down… and under my administration, we will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs … The nation-state remains the true foundation of happiness and harmony.”

Socialism & Secularism: Raising the Next Generation

“America’s public school system is in shambles,
teaching what it’s not supposed to teach, indoctrinating when it should be educating,
and raising the next generation in ways it decidedly should not go — and voila,
no wonder socialism and secularism are spreading in quick-time, throughout the country”

Something We Should All Celebrate Every Day

“We’re getting ready to sit down at the table and have Thanksgiving,

Calling on the Patriotic Heritage

and we need to do that again.”
