Story

Song information:

LAMB is about Jesus, and placed as the first song on the Smile Meter Album.  The song's break is Jesus.. ;;;;;Stomping the enemy Nations ------> written in end-time prophecy..... Yes, Jesus loves you, and yes,  he's coming back to rule here on Earth for a millennia.  This time, the Second coming, as opposed to the first Coming when Jesus was a  sacrificial lamb sent by the Father to die on the cross for us..... This time, Jesus will rule with an Iron Rod! The question is, for those of us that remain; Will we, rule with him?  The Rod will enable peace.....  The Holy Bible teaches that the people that are raptured up (called up) prior to his return to meet with Jesus, for awhile to be transformed and to learn, shall return to earth to administrate the laws and ways for God, that His ways are greater than our ways, through Jesus Christ who's wisdom is from the Father above. Every knee shall bow and every tongue profess that Jesus is Lord.  Philippians 2:8-11 says, "He humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal's death on a cross." And, goes on to say, "Every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God The Father." Therefore, Jesus is our link to our Father above.................Then in, Isaiah 63:3, Jesus speaking, "I alone,-------> stomped the grapes! None of the nations helped.... I stomped nations in my anger and stained my clothes with their blood." The plan is beautiful for us that pass the test..... Jesus died on the cross to erase our sins and give us a new start, only if we ask and accept him into our heart, then, we can start a new journey and live forever in his love and covered by his blood that washes away the sins of the world.  

Song origin:  

Lamb was one of the last songs written for the Smile Meter Album.  Here's a little gloss on the developement of this song. Mike Ruiz, Mike Young and Roger Grace had planned a rehearsal in the nearby hills as a fun get away and have a break from the studio. To add flavor to this adventure they brought along food, drinks, and their favorite snacks. They unpacked, set-up, lit the barb-b-que and strapped on their guitars while the grill was preparing.   The jumbo size open room was made of slump-stone , wrapped with clear windows on two sides, and had sheet vinyl flooring which caused the room to be echoey. The ambenience was just rignt and to remedie the noice bouncing back the windows were opened to release a portion of the reverberation.  After warming up, Roger ask the two Mikes to listen to a partly constructed and roughly arranged new song titled, LAMB, hoping they would like it.  The result was, nods with smiles of agreement.  Roger roughly sang a couple bars of the song to demonstrate the melody, then smilingly, said to Mike Ruiz, "I hope you'll agree to sing LAMB."   So, Mike gave it a Modest Mike try and it was immeditally evident that Mike could handle the song with ease. Later that evening, the three worked on the rough edges of the intro and the song's break and hone the timming.  The song was later tracked in the studio.
