about

Karl Miles Batavia, Illinois

I have finished recording my latest Catholic studio album "Where are the Warriors" an album which is a call to Catholic's to live our faith to its fullest meaning...we are called to be saints.

God's truth and love concurs all evil, but people must be able to feel and see this love in us. It is my hope, truth and love is heard in my music.

Track Name: Saint Born
A Saint Born

Sometimes in this world a saint is born
A blessing to every person near with love filling voids
Wells of hope are found
Springs of peace flow now
Love is as the dew
every blade of grass it’s found
The weeds uprooted from the ground

With the years her wisdom’s clear
Her conscience fully formed
In suffering she is fully conscious of our Lord
Her pain for the unloved, Her pain for the lost
Her pain for the dying,
their lives with out the cross
In suffering she blessed them all

How lovely how beautiful
when she graced this land
Her radiance her aura
Love pure as Eden’s plan

As she lay among the flowers
The blessed have come to mourn
A light so white
The dark was bright
Their faith was better formed
Prayers were fulfilled
Sickness often healed
Demons always ran
And this world is better now
Every tear there’s joy some how

How lovely how beautiful
when she graced this land
Her radiance her aura
Love pure as Eden’s plan
Track Name: Weary Soul
Weary soul

There are wonders in this world
I will never see
But you I can receive

I will turn my heart towards you
desperate every time
seeking more of you

Sorrow burns an endless hole
If not filled by grace
Your love I can't replace

sorrows draw me deeper in
nearer to your heart
adoring you is my part

Chorus:
Come to me, I will hold your weary soul
give you rest and make you whole
bring your weary soul

all the things that brought me near
never will I know
how you brought here

I will stay and hear your words
your voice will soothe the soul
come and make me whole

Chorus:
Come to me, I will hold your weary soul
give you rest and make you whole
bring your weary soul

Bridge:
I'll show you love you've never known
love which grows and burns the soul
it asks of you a sacrifice
this love will bring you back to life

I will give you all my heart
through trials more secure
my cross I will endure
Track Name: Love So Pure, So Beautiful
Love So Pure, So Beautiful

A gentle women, young and pure
a pearl for the lost
Her fragrant beauty, crystal clarity
her love washes you

With her heart she feels their pain,
the needs of those all alone
Cast aside to live or die
she seeks these tortured souls

Chorus:
And love so pure so beautiful (2x)

These lonely years with death and tears
her - love it multiplies
In every eye she hears their cry
for more than she can give

Chorus:
And love so pure so beautiful (2x)
Bridge:
And all the angels cried out to God
bring her home, bring her home (2x)

Salient love for those unloved
by friends and family
She took their needs and their disease
upon the bed she lies

Chorus:
And love so pure so beautiful,
And love so pure so beautiful

Bridge 2:
And all the people cried out to God
let her live let her live (2x)

As she lay her face so pale the lost,
come to mourn
Please don’t leave we cannot grieve
your life you brought us hope

Her eyes look past, the world’s grasp she says
I’m going home
Track Name: Oh Love My Love
Oh love my love

My love is the one who's scorned
mocked, jeered, abhorred
though she is only love
she's called a whore

Oh Love my love

Their words more vile now
Their hatred grows
It is more blatant now
With laws to oppose

Oh Love my love

Dance my love the world will see your glow
With your heart displayed they'll see it grow

Emboldened prideful minds
progressive times
no logic in their words
just hate and lies
Oh Love my love

Chorus:
Dance my love the world will see your glow
With your heart displayed they'll see it grow

Bridge:
Though all the world tries to strip you of arms
I will still stand near your heart
though some have faltered and lived out their lies
Saints will bear fruit in these trials

With what was prosperous times
our great regress
we must now give our lives
to pass this test

Oh Love my love

Chorus:
Dance my love the world will see your glow
With your heart displayed they'll see it grow

Bridge:
Though all the world tries to strip you of arms
I will still stand near your heart
though some have faltered and lived out their lies
Saints will bear fruit in these trials
Track Name: If It's Real
If it's real

It's amazing the way that we feel
rise above to see if it's real
quickly now quickly away
You were a wandering child
lovely though with your smile
loving you was never the same
Chorus:
You took me back to a time long ago
all alone you told me more I didn't know

though it was hard it was all true
I couldn't deny but how could you

you took the life now I'll never know
how did I ever let you go
never going back there for more
for more
Track Name: Silent Cries
Silent Cries

When I hear my newborn cry
thoughts of those who lost their lives
for what I do not know

Torn from their mothers womb
a place where life should assume
safety from all the worlds harm

I wonder why
I wonder why

Life there is no more precious gift
Tragic how they despise it
Their own flesh and blood

how dark the world has become
where life is but a nuisance
the silent cries when will they be heard

O God please come and right this wrong
turn the hearts of man gone wrong
hearts gone wrong
Track Name: Where Are The Warriors
Where are the warriors

In this age of grand illusions,
words meant to deceive
what is true is so disfigured
few know what to believe

moral laws decried as slavery
mocked as un-evolved
logics gone, the way of reason
neither can you find

Chorus:
Where are our warriors
the mighty one's
who dumbfound thousands
with God’s pure Love

In the Church which Jesus founded,
with God's guiding hand
It is Truth our mother teaches
pray you'll understand

Chorus:
Where are our warriors
the mighty one's
who dumbfound thousands
with God’s pure Love

Bridge:
Will you walk in her teachings,
stand firm in His Sacred Heart

Her Sacraments strengthen
Unleash the Church's power
Track Name: Purpose
Purpose

I must live with one goal in mind
I must seek the Kingdom of God
We are here not for pleasures or Gold
But to love with all our soul

It is God who gave us our life
It is God even when we deny
He won't force any one to love
Though He gave His only Son

Chorus:
Though the world brings passions we must fight
blurs lines that show us what is right
distracts us from what is pure good
we must keep our eyes on The Lord

We are called to be nothing less than the
saints who've lived before
Through the Church we receive such grace
We must choose to live this faith
Track Name: Come Home
Come Home

Peace is gone war has come,
Our soldiers, are they strong?
The line’s been drawn the lies begun
It’s the fog of war

Some friends they choose the side deceived
The faction I fight against
I pray their soul is kept from harm
Returned to loving arms

Come home please come home
the door is open wide
Come home please come home
the healing is inside

the evil the darkness of this war
will make the sides less vague
the side of right will shine more bright
as it’s purified

come home please come home
no prison on our side
come home please come home
to heal the wounds you hide

nothing in vain, no death, no pain
all will be our gain
This fight for life is won at night
Through the prayers of saints

Come home please come home
The devil cannot win
Come home please come home
The gates of hell won’t prevail

Our faith is weak, we are too meek,
We’re called to be saints
Track Name: He Holds Us Close
He holds us close
(Lyrics by Matt Tooley)

There’s a man on a tree,
greatest of these
head is bowed
as you take his breath away
hear him say, “it’s over now”

i love you, my father
i will trust in you

here’s a boy on his knees least of these
sin on his mind
and it takes my breath away
you still say, “son, it’s all right”

i love you, my father
i will trust in you . . . even though
i don’t always know why you give your herd
what we don’t deserve
i just want to say
father, that it takes my breath away

there’s a friend of mine
one day finds a beautiful girl
and she takes his breath away
vows are made, wonderful and sure

i love you, my father
i will trust in you

but just three months in
an accident brings dismay
and as you gave us breath of life
you took his wife, took his breath away

i love you, my father
i will trust in you . . . even when
i don’t understand why you let your sheep
fall and hurt and bleed
but despite the pain i just have to say
father, i hear you say, “just breathe away”
