Finally, A New Song

Actually, this song has been written and recorded for awhile, but I’ve been waiting to get it produced. It is still W.I.P. but I haven’t posted for so long, I decided I may as well share it in it’s rudimentary form.

Happy Mask
The inspiration:

In the Bible the term hypocrite was used for play actor. Masks were used for plays (like in that one scene in Gladiator where they made fun of the Emperor in the street skit.)  So many of us wear masks to suit the group we happen to be in. When I wrote this song, I thought of masks, but also clay. Clay in God’s hands = good, but becoming clay to fit the molds of those around us can be very bad.  You’ve got to know your convictions – the places you wouldn’t follow a group, no matter who they were.  It’s funny how many people take Christians for hypocrites, and many of us are, but Jesus – Christianity’s Founder, and the final Word on what it is was the first I know of to coin the term ‘hypocrite’ the way we use it today. He said, “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men.” Matthew 6:5
Okay, enough commentary. Please listen, enjoy, download and share. I hope to have another song up soon. Here it is, plus more links for Blipping, downloading, sharing, etc:
