A view of heaven – the great palace of eternal music – with a modern frame of reference. Continue reading below the graphic for more about specific lyrics and phrases.
This song came together on its own during a time of soul-searching and longing for the hope of a bright tomorrow. But then I saw tomorrow’s night club with the holiest of holies spinning records for his fans.
Big house right outside of town
Reminiscent of Audio Adrenaline’s Big House, another song with a modern (for 1993) view of heaven Also a reference to just how close the realm of eternity is to ours.
Casa Get Down
A pretty cool name for a house of endless dancing, if I do say so myself.
The cover free
To enter costs nothing. Or everything. Or both.
I’ll put you on the way
I know where the ladder is. I can show how to enter.
Shake your troubles
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
Feel the beat so subtle
There’s always been an undercurrent of stillness and quiet in the voice of God.
Many mountains to move
The often told measure of faith, so freely expressed in Casa Get Down.
Like you’ve never aged
We’ll be healthy and whole, wanting for nothing.
Eyes are drawn to the open stage
Only the throne is lit
Daniel, who saw it, said God’s throne was ablaze with flames. In this viewing, the spotlight is on the turntable and the music is perfect.
King over a house of sin
Mission: To seek and to save the lost.
Purpose: A free gift given to those who’d never make it on their own.
Vision: Bright, majestic, a place to approach with boldness.
Values: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Everybody takes a bow
[A] Every knee shall bow
Every voice shouting out in every tongue
[B] Every tongue confess
The host starts shaking like a tower of power
Not just any host. The biggest baddest, raddest host of all. The lord of hosts.
Spin ‘Espírito Santo’
To spin a record is to play it. DJ lingo, for those not in the know. Espírito Santo is the chart-topping hit that never gets old.

Cool song. Glad you add notes because sometimes I don’t quite follow. You’re an odd duck! I’m so glad every time I see in your words and music how much you love Jesus. I’m also amazed at your perspective and descriptions describing the here and now vs the better life promised.

Awesome! Two friends, actually: bass and guitar. The guitarist is better than me, and I loved holding down the rhythm while he played lead. Good clean fun.
