Clues for The Next Three "Future Tense" Songs
Sat., Jan. 12. 2008 6:35pm EST

We just finished recording vocals for three more songs on our upcoming "Future Tense" CD. We hope to have the finished versions ready for download by next week's newsletter.

"Future Tense" will be the 15th CD from ApologetiX. Carrying on a time-honored ApologetiX tradition, we are giving clues as to the contents.

We've already announced the first three tracks and made them available for anybody who pre-orders the CDs:

1. Bethlehem's Boy ("My Best Friend's Girl" by the Cars)
2. Tip From an Angel ("Lips of an Angel" by Hinder)
3. Try Micah ("Drive My Car" by the Beatles)

Here are your clues for the next three:

4. Iraq & Iran
In this time of political unrest, a title like "Iraq & Iran" will probably make this look like another anti-authority song designed to make America look foolish. Huh-uh. Although many pop singers today try to make our president look like the brainless scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz, this is actually a melancholy commentary about how even the greatest kingdoms of the world come crumbling down with time. Iraq and Iran were once the sites of two of the ancient world's greatest kingdoms, Babylon and Media-Persia. Go to the book of Daniel and check it out, especially Daniel 2:36-45, 4:17, 5:18-31, 7:17-27, 8:19-26, 11:1-45.

5. Stupid's Stronghold
This clue will stump a lot of readers who'll think they're unfamiliar with the song we're spoofing. But the real McCoy was a super-huge hit, and they probably know more about this tune than they realize, so we're willing to take the fallout from them. Just don't close off your mind or shoot down your own potential. This combination of old school and new school will give a little bit more meaning to the album title, "Future Tense." Although it's not an outright theological song, it takes a tongue-in-cheek look at current media trends and how they not only contradict the Bible but also common sense. We took the long way around this clue, but we didn't do it to be cruel. Right? Quite right!

6. Miss Martha
Lazarus' sisters, Mary and Martha, had differing ideas about hospitality when having Jesus over to dinner in Luke 10:38-42. Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made, whereas Mary sat at Jesus' feet and listened to him talk, not spending a single second on the housework. This wreaked havoc with Martha's sense of right and wrong, causing her great affliction. Martha could only shut her mouth and open her eyes for so long before the seeming injustice of it all lit a fire inside of her that forced her to blurt out, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!" In this song, Martha sings her sorrow, only to find out with great disappointment that her sister Mary had actually done the right thing.

Pre-order "Future Tense" now for $14.99, and you'll get downloads of the first three tracks from "Future Tense" (plus nine other downloads) free instantly. And you'll be able to download the next three tracks, "Iraq & Iran," "Stupid's Stronghold," and "Miss Martha" as soon as they're ready, most likely next week.

On top of that, you'll get the "Future Tense" CD (with free shipping anywhere in the United States) when it comes out, most likely by the end of winter. As the other "Future Tense" are completed, you'll be able to download those as well -- long before the CD is out -- with the link we'll send you when you pre-order.
