Nickel Creek

So there is this band I've been hearing about a lot lately from some friends of mine called Nickel Creek. They were one of those bands that your friends rave about, but you never remember to go and check out... well anyway thanks to Jon, I found their link and checked them out on myspace. All I can say is AWESOME!! I'm not normally a bluegrass kinda guy, but wow! Go over to their myspace and listen to couple songs. Two of my fav's are Their cover of Britney Spears (she could never sound that good) and their song "Doubting Thomas" I'm not sure where these guys are with their walk with God, but there is some awesome stuff in these lyrics, check it out...

"DOUBTING THOMAS - by Nickel Creek"

What will be left when I've drawn my last breath,
Besides the folks I've met and the folks who know me,
Will I discover a soul saving love,
Or just the dirt above and below me,

I'm a doubting thomas,
I took a promise,
But I do not feel safe,
Oh me of little faith,

Sometimes I pray for a slap in the face,
Then I beg to be spared 'cause I'm a coward,
If there's a master of death I'll bet he's holding his breath,
As I show the blind and tell the deaf about his power,
I'm a doubting thomas,
I can't keep my promises,
'Cause i don't know what's safe,
oh me of little faith

Can I be used to help others find truth,
When I'm scared I'll find proof that its a lie,
Can I be lead down a trail dropping bread crumbs,
That prove I'm not ready to die,

Please give me time to decipher the signs,
Please forgive me for time that I've wasted,

I'm a doubting thomas,
I'll take your promise,
Though I know nothin's safe,
Oh me of little faith
