ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dwell Eternal’s name is based on we dwell eternal before we eternally dwell. We focus on the things that matter, “Eternal things" before we die. The intro to dOuble crOss simulates the nation is constantly being double crossed or deceived by sin. We need to change the interpretation, for double cross nation to represent just as Christ died for us we die to our selves. The second meaning to dOuble crOss does deal with betrayal. dOuble crOss can represent either two crosses or two X's. The meaning of the two x's represents when we betray or cross out or sin, then x will mark the spot where we can hear God's will for our life.
The first song packed talks about music should not just be made to be popular, but benefit the listener. Packed also has a second meaning, that we need to store or Pack the commandments of Christ within. This concept is based on Romans 12:2, which God says we will be transform by the renewing of our minds.
The song Humble But Hungry is based on whatever we do, do to the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10:31). The other meaning is how we substitute things that don't matter, like the media or money. We need to think less about to enjoy things, but more about things to enjoy.
Uplift focuses on hip-hop/rap is not about dissing somebody or putting them down. It’s about picking people up, through encouragement based Ephesians 4:29. Uplift also uses the metaphor of the word “lead” to represent similar to Proverbs 17:24, that as Christians we sharpen each other as iron sharpens iron. That meaning "lead" also refers to leadership in the song. Uplift also talks about many objects of art to show the creation of Christ. The objects either bring out the artistry of Jesus or block the meaning of us being created in his image.
No Outlet, refers to clicks and groups that exclude people can be prevented when we plug in to the source. The source is Jesus Christ, and he is also our source of power. It also deals with the concept that salvation can be obtained by anyone through confessing our sins (Romans 10: 9-10). Salvation is not just a onetime thing but an ongoing process. It is mentioned in Luke 9:23 we follow Jesus daily. When we are saved that is not the end, until it is finished. We make Jesus our savior, Lord of our life.
The dOuble crOss intro talks about the discoloration of sin and how black it really is. Ironically even with the darkness it brings out color, our true colors- what we stand for. Another concept is the intro talks about we don't make decisions by being one voice (even though we are an individual) we make the wise choice. The concept comes from 1Corinthians 10:23, which says everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial.
The final song dOuble crOss talks mainly is about dying to ourselves, but has a couple of other concepts as well. The part of the song that says "not like a check, like a check list that represent perfection, X marks the spot to the resurrection." This warns to not make life out like a check list, referring to a perfectionist or out of obligation, or also wrongly based on self accomplishment. It should be based off the greatest GIFT Jesus gave us the only way to salvation through him. The song also refers that X represents Christ, meaning that Christ is the answer and the variable missing!

Dwell Eternal is only the first step of the equation. Dwell eternal represents X, as the times word written in the dOuble crOss equation. The full equation Times 2 (cross) solves and shows what a dOuble crOss life looks like.

"I want my music for all of my audience to understand, but not fully understood because interpretation creates interest, which leads to greater creations. I want the listener to have interpretations based off truth, not only by my music, but even greater from the BIBLE.”

Lyrics
dOuble crOss CD intro for Dwell Eternal
Attention nations double crossed
Morals have been cross out values have been lost.
We need to cross over the nation is being double crossed by sin.
But we need to take up or cross and live again.
Christ died once for our sin.
We need to take up our cross and live again.
No more double crossed by sin.
That’s right a dOuble cross nation.
Cross out your past no matter what you did.
X marks the spot where the treasure of God's will
begins!!!

Packed (not just stored, restored)

Why do you we make music popular when it should benefit the listener?

Chorus:
Music is not just packed.
We meet the listener where there at.
Not putting our old self away.
New attitude every day.
Music is not just packed.
We meet the listener where there at.
Every day that’s the way
That’s Christ
That’s what we say.
Music is not just packed.
We meet the listener where there at.
Not putting our old self away every day.
Music every day
We display
Christ everyday
That’s the way
He’s the way.

Not like the Pac the Pac on TV not a trip of a conference were going to win.
We store up the commandments of Christ within.
Renew our mind every day.
Instead of putting God in a box like a display.
Christ every day we display.
Not just stored, restored.
Not just to store by the light.
Too continue Restore the meaning of life which
We our restored by Christ.
We follow Ephesians 4-24
Change our heart
See it’s not about being number one on to the charts
Chorus:
Music is not just packed
We meet the listener where there at
Not our old self away way
We put on a new attitude every day.

We unpack our burdens of our life to God the son.
We performed not for one audience but the audience of one.
Restored not by a post that says how we perform but in the post and the pre form by our Lord.
Not just stored restored.

Humble But Hungry, (Choose the bread of life)
Chorus:
I’m humble but hungry to everywhere I go
I may be parched but I am full.
Based on a diet, in everything I’m confident.
.
I don’t thirst than anything more than God the Son.
I follow first Corinthians 10:31.
Whatever you did do eat, drink
do to the glory of Christ,
Being Christ like is not about having an appetite.
I don’t always go for seconds,
Though we’re meant to be second as servants.
That’s not the source that’s stable.
It’s like you got up from the main course,
Just left the table.
You were not excused
You still hungry,
It’s like you invested everything, everything into nothing.

Chorus
(2) I’m humble but hungry to everywhere I go
I may be parched but I am full.
Based on a diet, in everything I’m confident

I care for the living water, and the bread,
More than making bread that can go to your head,
Because your interest you have to pay,
But people lose interest in Christ every day.
It’s not like news feed that’s not why I’m alive,
Through the living water, and the bread I survived.
Chorus
(2) I’m humble but hungry to everywhere I go
I may be parched but I am full.
Based on a diet, in everything I’m confidant
Instrumental: To be Christ like is not an appetite , Choose the bread of life

Uplift, (not defined by a diss)
Chorus:
(3) Uplift uplift
Uplifted
Uplift uplift
Uplift uplifted

Here we go!!!
Why are we trying to be defined by list.
For others to be read.
When we clearly can’t be sharpen
Or even be lead.
Not mistakes
Because God can create
And he says we were fearfully and
wonderfully made.
You can be accurate through Christ where your were at
Or you can still be a rough draft.
We think we need the paper we don’t need ink
But where liked water down paint.
where like a draining sink
There ain’t no current
Because we are worried about the next dis or burn
Not uplifting by words for all.
But making a person worsen like a pencil being more dull
You think your rhymes are fine like
Crude oil, but their just crude like slippery spoiled soil.
You don’t ever help anybody grow.
You just begin to decompose.
It’s just frustration.
You don’t have any foundation.
You thought you put the seed down.
But really you just drove it to the ground.
You think your killing it, but
Really you just killed it.
In any situation that’s is designed
We follow the bible’s lines
There the bible lines that are aligned.
In any situation that is designed.
You think you fall down
But you can’t get up.
You think you fall down
But you can’t get up.
Instrumental:
You think you fall down
But you can’t get up.
You think you fall down
But you can’t get up .
Like a storm like a strike, sudden homer
We are not the creator we have a owner.
A diss is not about slamming somebody and saying you got own.
God is our creator, and owner.
Heaven is our permanent home.
(3) Uplift uplift
Uplifted
Singing Uplift uplift
Uplift uplifted
Uplift uplift uplift


To be Accurately Artistic
Means to be uplifted

No Outlet (Just get plugged in)
Chorus:
4.) No outlet just gets plugged in.
The Source to the source
That all removed sin.

Unconnected from creation.
Connected to the creator.
Or just trying to get by or do something greater.
Are we just saved or
Do we have a Savior.
A life for support.
Never turned down by the everlasting power source.

(4) No outlet just get plugged in.
The Source is source
That all removed sin.

Life may be shut down
Beat down
Hurt or broken.
Life may be a down turn for support.
Never turn down by the everlasting power source.
Chorus:
No Outlet just get plugged in.
The source of the source
That removed all sin.
No Outlet just get plugged in
The source of the source
that removed all sin.
No outlet just get plugged in.
(Echos) no outlet just get plugged in
No outlet just get plugged in.
The source of the source
That removed all sin.
No outlet just get plugged in.
The source of the source
That removed all sin.

Never turn down
By the everlasting
Power source.
Instrumental to the end.

dOuble cross song intro

Sin deep dark black.
Exposed by are colors.
But easily disposed
Once we give it to God forever.
We are under constant attack, attack. (echoes)



Christ died for our sin.
To finish is not to end.

We don’t just try to do things
By being one voice.
No we make the wise choice.
This is it.
One Life,
One life.
But a once in a life time opportunity.
We think about things above
Before we reach the place above all things.
We dwell eternal
In falling world
Before we eternally dwell.

dOuble crOss song( Take up your cross and live again)
Chorus:
(2) Christ died for your sin.
Christ died for your sin.
Christ died for your sin.
Take up your cross.
And live again
Live again.

We need to be a cross and remain alive and take up our cross for which he died.
We betray the past cross out what was then.
But take up our cross and live again.
No gift can replace what he gave.
So we cross to the lost because he paid the cost.
Being a Christian is not about having a check box.
Or an account to save for when you were right.
Take account we were all saved by Christ.
No need to mark a check
Because X marks the spot.
We cross from our point from God to plot.
Not A check like a check list that represents perfection.
X marks the spot to the resurrection.

Chorus:
(2 )Christ died for our sin.
(echoes) Christ died for your sin.
Take up your cross and live again
Cross out sin.

We check if we
Intersect to the X axis
In all situations.
Not always worried about being right, but having the relation.
If we think your graph is based on performance,
It’s like you did the math with no coordiance.
We need to talk in lines not segments
So our direction is equivalent.
Chorus
(2 )Christ died for our sin .
(echoe) Christ died for your sin.
Take up your cross and live again
Cross out sin.

Be a line wrote no matter the length
If we acknowledge him he will make our path straight.
Don’t design your own ladder.
It does not matter, cross to a new pattern.
We graph our plot that Christ represents X.
Read it as an equation.
That he crossed out sin.
So we need to take up our cross and live again.

(4 ) put your dOuble crOss up whatever keeping you down, put your hands put your hands in the sky to yourself you die Christ is alive.

(2) dOuble crOss up.
dOuble crOss up.
dOuble crOss up .
dOuble cross.
oh oh oh.
dOuble cross up.
dOuble cross up.


(2 ) put up your dOuble crOss whatever is keeping you down oh oh oh oh.
Put your dOuble crOss up, if something keeping you down oh oh oh oh.
Put up your dOuble crOss whatever is keeping you down oh oh oh oh.
put your dOuble crOss up if something keeping you down oh oh oh oh.
(Guitar solo)

Hip hop half time break down
Into Slow down

We think about things above,
Before we reach the place above all things.
We Dwell Eternal
Before we Eternally Dwell!
