does anyone remember that first ad for the iPod? at least, i think it was the first ad. it featured a brown guy dancing in his apartment, downloading music to his iPod. then in a moment of silence he picked up the iPod. as he put on the earphones, the music started again, and he danced his way out the door. i too can do such things with my mp3 player. it's no iPod, but it's more than enough for me.

i often listen to music on my way to school. sometimes, if the music gets loud, i wonder what people would think if they could hear it. i never feel bad if it's secular music that i'm listening to. but if it's Christian, i suddenly feel an urge to lower the volume.

why do i feel ashamed of my music? am i ashamed of Christ?

Jesus Freak
DC Talk

[What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus Freak?
What will people do when they find that's it's true?]

Separated, 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've 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 it raved in a typical tattoo green
He stood on a box in the middle of the city
And he claimed he had a dream

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

Kamikaze, my death is gain
I've been marked by my Maker
A peculiar display
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 strange by the locusts he ate
The Pharisees tripped when they heard him speak
Until the king took the head of this Jesus Freak

[chorus 2x]

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 it make me a stranger
That my best friend was born in a manger

[chorus 2x]

What will people think?
What will people do?
I don't really care
There ain't no disguising the truth
