The sky's been torn and the moon is red. 
The world will soon be engulfed by grace. 
My heart's been born but it's been yellowin' 
so I'm hopping on a camel 
'cause it'll be making its way to where...

Darkness turns to light, death turns to life. 
The silent will yell as the empty are filled 
and the camels go squeezing through the eye of the needle. 

Lord, you know my soul, and though physics escape me 
a camel could eat me in three bites. 
And that needle seems so impossible. 
But not for you, 
'cause the camel will find that place where... 


None of us deserve a bit of your love. 
But you took the eye of the needle and opened it up. 

And you see my soul, but Jesus is disguising me. 
So there is hope and the camels squeeze, yes and...


Mitch: Camelsong  was started in the summer of 2001 and is another song that started out with a completely different thought behind it.  But I wanted to stay with it.  I was hoping it would become something.  It use to be about the Cany Fork River in Tennessee.  This is a river that when your traveling on I40, you cross over it five times in four miles; it 's a real windy river.  One day we went over it and it had this real beautiful white fog sitting on top of the water.  That's were the song started; it was about the Cany Fork River.  It soon progressed to camels and how Jesus talks about how it's harder for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven then for a camel to squeeze through the eye of a needle.  Some people's biggest stumbling block is money and material possessions.  Everybody has a biggest stumbling block and it's different for each person.  I know that Jesus has made it possible for me to enter the kingdom of heaven despite my biggest stumbling blocks and the same with everybody.  So I guess the camel must go squeezing through the eye of the needle because of Jesus.
