1. Truth for a Lie

You know that men love darkness
Rather than light
Because their deeds are evil

They have the Truth in front
They look without and within
They harden their hearts
Given over to sin


We manufacture our perception of Truth
Always taking the easy way
Every day weíre drifting farther from God
Exchanging Truth for a Lie



Iíll take a little of this
And a little of that
"Whatever feels right"
Is what I always say

Ignore the voice inside me
Happiness is my right
Why resist our nature?


We manufacture our perception of Truth
Always taking the easy way out
Every day we travel farther from God
Trading Truth for a Lie



Even a dog knows his master
But you donít know your own
Mistake creation for creator
Give up the meat for a bone



The evil we have
Is not enough for you
To satisfy your lust
You must invent some new

To you the knowledge of God
Is something lacking in worth
So He has given you up
Depravity for your mirth


We manufacture our perception of Truth
Always taking the easy way out
Every day we journey farther from God
Forsaking Truth for a Lie



Be sure you check to see
Who God has revealed Himself to be
Not who youíd like Him to be
Or who you think He should be




2. Seven Trumpets




3. More than a Carpenter

It's a nice day for a walk
I think I'll go to the lake
I see the people standing there
I hear a voice

"Friend, tell me what's going on?"
He shakes his head and walks away
I see a man in a boat
I hear him speak

Birds!
Rocks!
Thorns!
Good soil!

You think you see, but you are blind
You think you hear; you do not understand
Your hearts are hard, you've closed your mind
Oh, I would heal you!


More than a man
The Son of Man
More than a carpenter
With Eyes of Fire
And voice like a stream/thunder
His words cut to the bone


He tells another tale as I watch
I sense his words are true
Though he talks in riddles
I know there's more

Many leave now, though I stay
I need to understand
Tell me more, I need to know
Who you are

Who is this man, a carpenter?
How did he learn such truth?
Who is this man, a carpenter?
No, so much more




4. Yamiso

Why am I so

Weak, when I want to be strong?
Selfish, when I want just to give?
Dirty, when I long to be clean?
Blind, when I know how to see?


Why am I so?
Because I am so
No worse than me, you canít deny
/ The Chief of Sinners am I

Why do I do,
What I wish not to?
Oh God, have mercy on I
Sinner am I


Why am I such a

Liar, when the Truth be known?
Fool when the Wisdom is mine?
Thief, when I have all I need?
Beggar, if I am so rich?


What a wretched man, oh that I am.
Who will set me free from this body of death?
Who is He that condemns, but He who sets free
Oh the Lamb of God, its for me that You bleed


Why am I so

Guilty, when the debt has been paid?
Red, if I'm white as snow?
Dead, if I shall live?
Selfish, when I want just to give?




5. Good and Faithful Servant

So many people go through life never satisfied
they're always longing for things to fill them up with pride
A new promotion, a brand new car,
some thing or other make them feel just like a star

Wanting recognition, honor or fame
When you boil it right down, most folks are the same

But there is only one thing that I really want to hear
When I stand before God's throne with Jesus standing there


Well Done. Good job, My son
Well Done my good and faithful servant
Faithful with a few things, I will give you more
Well done My good and faithful servant



But I fear that when I get there I wont hear those words
Cause I know that there is so much more that I must learn
The work of the Kingdom on this earth wont be done
Until the Master brings us home and all our songs are sung

So give me understanding, Lord, open my eyes wide
Speak to me in whispers slowly that I may know your mind, and youíll tell me


Well Done. Good job, My son
Well Done my good and faithful servant
Faithful with a few things, I will give you more
Well done My good and faithful servant




6. Revelation 101

Got a little thing Iím trying to tell you
But I donít want you to be concerned
You know it's something that you might find scary
But you gotta know your worldís gonna b-b-burn

You know it shouldnít be a Revelation
We been hearing for a thousand years
Itís a manual of devastation
But it seems to me that no one cares

Heís cominí back
Heíll take me home


I got a little class on economics
Itís called Devastation 101
You can go ahead and try to hide
But in an hour thereíll be no where to run

You know Babylon will be thrown down
No never to be found again
The only sound that youíll hear is weeping
From your merchants and the worldís great men

Heís cominí back
Heíll take me home


Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save
Nor his ears too dull to hear
But your iniquities have separated you from your God
And your sins have hidden His face

I hope you donít call me a gloom and doomer
Cause that really ainít the way I feel
Yeah, I'm lookin forward to that day
And I hope its not late, but sooner

Heís cominí back
Heíll take me home




7. Better Man

Where do I begin?
Iím still lost in my sin
No matter what I do
I still fall short of You

Id like think that I could go
beyond where I am
But each time I try
I find myself back where I started


Iíve heard it said
Its easier to die for You than live
I pray that in the end
Its the fighting of the battle
not the triumph

He was a better man than I
He was a better man than I
Id like to think that I would die
For such a better man than I



How do I stay in the Spirit
As long as my flesh lives?
Nuno you said it best
"My miracles run weak"

Release me from my bonds
I cant take it any more
Cant you see?
My flesh, I abhor


Iíve heard it said
Its easier to die for You than live
I pray that in the end
Its the fighting of the battle
not the triumph

He was a better man than I
He was a better man than I
No worse than me you canít deny
You are a better man than I



Though I battle my flesh I wont give it up!
No, I will fight till the end!
I know that the dying is worth the living
I give You all that I am

Lord give me the strength to
Pick up my cross yet again
Turn your sword on me Lord,
I lay down for You again


I know that its true
Its easier to die for You than live
But I pray that in the end
Its the fighting of the battle!

You are a better man than I
You are a better man than I
The Son sent, for me, to die
Jesus, You are a better man than I

Tears of sorrow I cry
For the Son sent down, for me He died!
I will fight all the days of my life
You are a better man than I
