C, G, D/F#, Em
if I told you
that I would give you
if you give me back the hostages
what do you think
the best way to get more weapons would be?
It’s a hostage trade.
We’ll give ‘em right back.
Then we’ll take some more.
For some guns that attack
Oh, maybe we didn’t think this through
I won’t negotiate with terrorists
at least in public
Should have kept your public promise Reagan.
Not just because it’s right, but because you’re not real good at it.

But, gambling's different. Let's say I enact my gambling theory from yesterday. I get great at poker. Play people worse than me. And win lots of money over time.
All I'm really doing in this situation is siphoning money off idiots. I'm not earning money by adding value to anyone's life. I'm solely taking it away. If you can get past that, it's a no-brainer. But, it's a tough one to get past.

Wooh! This one ended up being a lot harder than the first, but after listening to the final mix (...about 200 times) we think it's worth it! Matt and I are so excited to let you know that "The Fallen Cry" is now available on iTunes. "The Fallen Cry" is an attempt to bring back the full spectrum of Psalms to the modern-day worship experience. That people would be able to sing along to songs with words that more accurately reflect the reality of their hearts. The album title comes from the perspective of each song, sung from the voice of the fallen, a voice we believe has quite literally fallen silent in the Americanized Church. Plus, if you buy the album and send the iTunes receipt to me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll send you a copy of our last CD, "Still Running" for FREE. (if you live outside the U.S. I'll send you a digital version). So, jump on iTunes, give us a 5-star rating and a nice review, and most importantly, let us know what you think of the album! And for those of you able, willing and a believer in the message, please help us spread the word. You guys rock!

Am, Em, G, D
couldn’t you be a little smarter
all your taxes have more consequences
than just short-term income coming in
oil import quotas, windfall profit taxes
regulations, foreign debacle of Iran’s revolution
add it all up and what does it equal
the highest lending rate of all time
round-the-block for gas wait lines
way to heal the nation
