BLOODGOOD – The Messiah – Live Music Video

COMMENTS

Here’s a earblast from the past! In 1987 Bloodgood released their legendary sophomore album, called Detonation. “The Messiah”, along with its companion song, “Crucify” were immediate hits, and they still sound great nearly 30 years later.

Unfortunately, this video was recorded from a JCTV broadcast directly to VHS, so the picture and sound quality is not the best. But it stands as a reminder how much music and technology have evolved in 3 decades.

What’s YOUR favorite Bloodgood song and/or memories? Let me know in the comments section below.

The CD can be purchased directly from the band here: BloodgoodBand.com

Bloodgood - Detonation

“The Messiah” LYRICS:

Take Him down, take Him down
Move Him gently, hold His head
Wipe His face, clean the blood off
Lay Him here, wrap Him in this cloth

Lift Him up, lift Him up
Move Him easy, careful now
He’s the Messiah

Tears are filling, eyes of sorrow
Hands are touching, no one’s speaking
His eyes are empty, skin’s so white
His body’s cold, it has no life

He’s the Messiah
He’s the Messiah

Go! Into the world and tell
All of creation He lives
He lives in the hearts of men
He said, “Go! Into the world and tell
All of creation He lives
He lives in the hearts of men”

Dry your eyes, hold each other
Lift your thoughts, you are brothers
He’s the Messiah

Don’t be afraid, He has risen, He’s not here
Why are you trembling with fear?
Just as He told you, just as He said
They could not stop Him, He is not dead!

He’s the Messiah
He’s the Messiah

He’s alive!
