Songs of the Day – Supernatural and Jesus Freak (DC Talk Month Openers. Lyrics Included)

01 Mar

Ahhh the good ol’ days.

Today’s Songs of the Day are DC Talk’s most famous hits, Supernatural and Jesus Freak, to kick off DC Talk Month (March 2013) with a bang!

Supernatural was the highly-anticipated follow-up to DC Talk’s ground-breaking Jesus Freak song and album. The Jesus Freak album was released in 1995, while Supernatural was released in 1998.

Jesus Freak is the song that propelled DC Talk into the mainstream and the album and song became one of the most well-known and biggest Christian rock hits of all time (and best-selling)… During a time when Christian bands were not well known and rarely crossed over or had secular appeal. The song was also a rock track that rocked hard, a big departure for this previously hip-hop focused band. Jesus Freak is track #3 out of 13 on the Jesus Freak album.

Supernatural is a fitting follow-up and has a very cool futuristic, experimental sound to it that is a perfect sequel to Jesus Freak IMHO. Supernatural rocks harder but in different ways. Supernatural is track #12 out of 14 on the Supernatural album.

While Jesus Freak has a unique sound, it has an old-school rock vibe in many ways, while Supernatural has a new-school cool feel to it. Either way, both songs are absolutely phenomenal. Even today they are headbangers for sure and are best enjoyed together. Enjoy!

Supernatural DC Talk Song Lyrics

This world’s a tortured place to be
So many things to torment me…
And as I stumble down this… road it takes a toll
These days and nights I turn to You
No human hand can pull me through
No cosmic force or magic… brew will ever do

But I can see it coming
You’re not so far away
Cause I can feel Your power surging through the
whole of me

God is there and He is watching
He tells me all is well (it’s supernatural)
God is there, there’s no denying
Supernatural (it’s supernatural)
Supernatural

Beyond this physical terrain
There’s an invisible domain
Where angels battle over… souls in vast array
But down on earth is where I am
No wings to fly, no place to stand
Here on my knees I am a…
STRANGER IN THIS LAND~

I need an intervention
A touch of providence

It goes beyond religion…
To MY VERY circumstance

God is there and He is watching
He tells me all is well (it’s supernatural)
God is there, there’s no denying
Supernatural (it’s supernatural)
God is there and He is watching
The signs are everywhere (the signs are everywhere!)
God is there, there’s no denying
Supernatural (it’s supernatural)
Supernatural

Six days a universe was made…
Supernatural
From the dead a man was raised…
Supernatural
They say He walked across the waves…
Supernatural
And I’ll believe it to my GRAVE

But I can see You coming
You’re not so far away
Cause I can feel Your power surging through the WHOLE OF ME

God is there and He is watching
The signs are everywhere (it’s supernatural)
God is there, there’s no denying
Supernatural (it’s supernatural)
Supernatural

God is there (God is here! God is there!)
God is everywhere

…. Some things just can’t be explained……

Jesus Freak DC Talk Song Lyrics

Separated… and I cut myself clean
From a past that comes back in my darkest of dreams…
Been apprehended… by a spiritual force…
And a grace that replaced all the me I’m divorced…

/ I saw a man with tat on his big fat belly /
/ It wiggled around like marmalade jelly /
/ It took me a while to catch what it said /
/ Cause-I-had-to-match-the-rhythm-of-his-belly-with-MY-HEAD! /
/ “Jesus Saves” is what he raved /
/ In a typical tattoo green… /
/ He stood on a box in the middle of the city /
/ And claimed he had a DREAM /

What will people think
When they hear that I’m a JESUS FREAK
What will people do when they find that is true

I don’t really care if they label me a JESUS FREAK
There ain’t no disguising the truth

There ain’t no disguising the truth…
Though I ain’t into hiding… The Truth

Kamikaze, my death is gain…
I’ve been marked by My Maker
A peculiar display… yeah
The high and lofty, they see me as weak
Cause I won’t live and die… for the power they SEEK

/ There was a Man from the desert with naps in His head /
/ The sand that He walked was also His bed /
/ The words that He spoke made the people assume /
/ There wasn’t too much left in the upper room /
/ With skins on His back and hair on His face /
/ They thought He was crazed by the locusts He ate /
/ You see the Pharisees tripped when they heard Him speak /
/ Til the king took the head of this Jesus Freak /

What will people think
When they hear that I’m a Jesus Freak
What will people do when they find that is true

I don’t really care if they label me a Jesus Freak
There ain’t no disguising the truth
What will people think
When they hear that I’m a Jesus Freak
What will people do when they find that is true
I don’t really care if they label me a Jesus Freak
There ain’t no disguising the truth

No… I ain’t into HIDIN’….

People say I’m strange, does it make me a stranger?
That my best friend was born in a manger….
People say I’m strange, does THAT make me a stranger?
My best friend was born in a MANGER

What will people think
When they hear that I’m a Jesus Freak
What will people do when they find that is true
I don’t really care if they label me a Jesus Freak
There ain’t no disguising the truth [repeat]

What will people think?
[What will people think]
What will people do?
[What will people do]
I don’t really care.
[What else can I say]
There ain’t no disguising the truth
[Jesus is the way.]
