Back in the day -- Hound of Heaven

I first heard Daniel Amos in the late 80's. By then they had musically migrated from country music to rock. As a Christian band, their lyrics fused with a solid rock rhythm. One of my favorite songs was Hound of Heaven. Their music often focused on the society we live in and our apathy toward God.

He got lost among the stars
Hollywood flash, cash, mansions and cars
Deep sea diver Lear jet flyer
Will this thing go to the moon?
Give me elbow room, and for heaven's sake
Take this aching away

You can't run, you can't hide, from the hound of heaven
You're free to choose, can you refuse the seeker of souls
