about

This album was born during two years of struggle and restoration over what does it mean to follow on the steps of the Great Rabbi. The lyrics are an expression of it all. As it is, its content can be considered Christian, but it tries to disentangle itself from all the cliches of Christian music.

In order to do that, I moved away from all the U2-influenced roar inhabiting churches and youth camps and took a trip to my own inner sanctuary. There, I filled the empty spaces with synthesizers and guitars while allowing the experiences to talk for themselves. The end result is closer to electronic dance music , specially Chillout, because that is the way Heavens sounds to me.

It was born from certain experiences in certain communities but it ended as an expression of isolation, pondering the centuries old question: can we be isolated from all community and still call yourself a Christian? This music does not try to answer the question, just document it.

In the end, when all the complains and bullying from the righteous ones stops, the experience, the real Experience, is all that is left. The rest is noise.

released April 27, 2010

This album was and is dedicated to Jesus Christ Our Savior.

With special Thanks to my wife, for her patience and understanding, without whom, this project would still be in some closet. Also, to all the people that walked with me over the years. Special consideration to Maumee UMC in Perrysburg, OH; Alan Hall for pushing me forward in the search and our friends Oscar and Sonia at Comunidad Cristiana, Winston Salem, NC. for giving me the first chances. All of them taught me something over the years.

Thanks, also, to all the people who refused to participate in these recordings and to the ministers that fiercely criticized its technical qualities. You know, the Psalms do not use rhyming.

Track Name: Over the Treetops
Over the Treetops
by Heaven Knows

Over the Treetops
Over the landscape
Your life is filling everything.
Over the Treetops
Over the Landscape
Your love is singing out loud.

And I’m getting closer now
to all the things that you hold dear
is the new beginning now
your Kingdom growing up on us.

I can see it clearly
I can feel it growing
Track Name: Dry Season
Dry Season
by Heaven Knows

Once I had a dream of endless life
Once I thought that everything was right
Now these eyes hurt from tears never shed
Now these hands rise your bread and wine

Once I had the future on my side
Once I believed this world will love me enough.
All is gone now. I don’t need to hide.
It all make sense now.
I come to you for life.

Once I trusted that reality was real
Once I though that Heaven was a place
In my dry spell your blood never fails
It all make sense now
I rise your bread and wine.

I come for Your Grace.
I come to you for Life.
come for Your Grace.
I come to you for Life.
Track Name: In the Wind
In the Wind
by Heaven Knows

We are not strangers
We all bleed and fall in love
We all care about children and trees
Somebody has been lying to you.
We are not your enemy,
We are made in his image too.
We all dream and hope and sing
We want a future just like you.

Can you feel the wind blowing all around?
Can you tell which way to go?
Can you see the scales falling from your eyes?
Is the taste of a new life.

We are not your mistake.
We refuse to stand in silence
Somebody has been lying to you.

Can you feel the wind blowing all around?
Can you tell which way to go?
Can you see the scales falling from your eyes?
Will you walk in this new light?
Can you feel the wind blowing all around?
Can you tell which way to go?
Can we grow together once again?
This loneliness is killing us.
Track Name: When I Think of You
When I think of you
by Heaven Knows

Is when I think of you in silent storms at night
when all the pain and grief becomes the only thing.
Is when I see your light that I can understand
this darkness growing in me
that chains me to my sin.

Is when I think of you dying in my place alone
I realize how far away is the life you intended for me.

Is when I think of you and your blood that set us free
gives me strength to face the day
and become what you want me to be.

Is when I think of you dying in my place alone
I realize how far away is the life you intended for me.
Track Name: The Blessing
The Blessing
by Heaven Knows

May the rains wash your soul
and the suns warm your heart
May every road you walk
lead you deeper into your vision.
May the life that you are
illuminate everyone around
May the life that you breathe
shine brighter every day.
By the way, you know,
I love you.

May the wind bring you words
that will show your truth inside
and all the shadows melt away
from your future and your past
May the life that you are
illuminate everyone around
May the life that you breathe
shine brighter every day.
By the way, you know,
I love you.
Track Name: Terra Incognita
Terra Incognita
by Heaven Knows

You send me out to get the land
you promised to my fathers
but here I’m so weak
not ready to become
what you want me to be.

The wind is bringing rain
to wash my tears of shame
the trees remain in silence
when this night is over
I will walk into your daylight.

Is your Grace that’s flowing like milk and honey
Is your Name that’s storming, shinning over the land.

You send me out to tell your story
to any one that may hear
but the time is running
and this road is so hard
I need your hand to rise me.

Is your Grace that’s flowing like milk and honey
Is your Name that’s storming, shinning over the land.
Track Name: Searching for You
Searching for you
by Heaven Knows

I have been searching for you
in different places all around,
with a different name
with a face that was not mine.
I have been lost in endless streets
I have been stoned by friendly hands
I lost my bearings and my soul
not knowing I was upside down.

How can I be the one you want?
How can I see your face and truly live?
There must be a mistake somewhere
Everything I try is broken.

I have been searching for you
in every stranger, every fool
They all deserted me, you know
I didn’t know what they were looking for.
But I believe there is a new chance
that I can take it and be made new
I do believe your grace is stronger
than all my empty destinations.

How can I be the one you want?
How can I see your face and truly live?
There must be a mistake somewhere
Everything I try is broken.
Track Name: This is Your Song (Album Version)
This is Your Song
by Heaven Knows

This is your song, Lord
the one that has been all along
from the beginning of time
your wonder so sublime.
This is the song you wrote
about the greatest love
the song we sing in crowds
or when we fall alone.

This is your song
let us sing it for you
Let us rejoice in you

This is the song we sing
in every street of lust and sin
or when the sun is rising
your glory so surprising.
A song of rain and wind
the song we find ourselves in
in broken homes and jails
where your name is hailed.

This is your song
let us sing it for you
Let us rejoice in you
Track Name: Untitled
Untitled
by Heaven Knows

Late at night I called upon the Lord
and I asked Him
why am I feeling so dry?
He said:
If you don't stand in Faith
you will not stand at all.

World
by Heaven Knows

Time is running toward you.
The universe flowing between your fingers
and here my soul glorifies your love
(your love, your love, your love)

This world was made for you
this body born in your love
Come with your power and grace
take what belongs to you.

The stones and trees will scream your name
the moon and seas living within your rhythm
and here my eyes rest in your beauty
your beauty all around

This world was made for you
this body born in your love
Come with your power and grace
take what belongs to you.

The rivers bring your blessing forward
and mountains greet your majesty
and here I rest in your embrace
the warm of your embrace.

This world was made for you
this body born in your love
Come with your power and grace
take what belongs to you.
