Flyfeaf & RockBand

I love music, all kinds and forms of music have some value even if I can't see it personally. I was raised on Hymns and John Denver, exposed to Country Music, Classical Music, Rock Music and learned to appreciate them all.

In College I took a Music Appreication Class from one of the best music professors ever (Hiya Aunt Carol) and we delt with Classical music in the short class and I learned a lot. I say all that to say this; I love music. :)

We bought Rockband to have a party game for the 360 that was not violent to play, in the process we noted there are no "Chistian Rock" bands in the video game. While doing some research on "why not?" I discovered that one of the bands although not a "Christian Rock Band" were all indeed Christians and their music permeated with Christian overtones (and pleanty of Grunge Rock) were on the game.

We played the game right over this song.... the chourus is my personal favorite and although you won't find a lot of Flyleaf on my MP3 player, it is great to see Christians impacting their world for the glory of Christ. Unashamed of their belief they sing on into a culture that many would rather write off.

"I'm So Sick"

I will break into your thoughts
With what's written on my heart
I will break, break

I'm so sick,
Infected with where I live
Let me live without this
Empty bliss,
Selfishness
I'm so sick
I'm so sick

If you want more of this
We can push out, sell out, die out
So you'll shut up
And stay sleeping
With my screaming in your itching ears

I'm so sick,
Infected with where I live
Let me live without this
Empty bliss,
Selfishness
I'm so sick
I'm so sick

Hear it, I'm screaming it
You're heeding to it now

Hear it! I'm screaming it!
You tremble at this sound

You sink into my clothes
And this invasion
Makes me feel
Worthless, hopeless, sick

I'm so sick,
Infected with where I live
Let me live without this
Empty bliss,
Selfishness
I'm so sick
I'm so sick

You planning to tell me you got Rock Band any time soon? This is one I'll play online with you pretty much anytime :)

While I think it's neat Flyleaf's in the game, I don't care for that song much :(
