1. The Calm




2. Skin For Skin

Skin for Skin

All power and lying wonders to take it all
He comes to everyone like a serpent he may crawl
He will come to touch your bone and flesh
Hoping that you will curse God under your breath

He will give you all that your heart desires
If you donít mind judgment in a Lake of Fire
He cannot be divided you donít know his depths
You will serve him well if you turn stone to bread

Skin for Skin
The seeds are sown
Youíre by yourself
But you are not alone

Overcoming, standing, walking, living, in the victory of him
Who is holy and him who is true
That makes us a pillar in the temple of god
I will make you Ė i will make you

Who can he bind that is not already bound?
Only those who cast themselves down
In a religious world that pacifies
He is always there to paganize

He doesnít know a thing about a man made hell
His work is to destroy you in this earthly realm
To cast you into prison in unholy cell
To deceive the world to break them at their will




3. End of Days

End of Days

From the beginning of the garden to the end and the grave
Salvation of all comes by the cross, the blood, the life the name
Every man, women and child followed Adam to the grave
Your flesh he will destroy that your spirit will be saved

End of Days, End of Days, The Age is Over
Embrace the Revelation

Forever feels like Sunshine

Tasted death for every man suffered for your sins
Not willing that any should perish can you comprehend?
Some will be saved so as by fire, the past is burned away
First Begotten of the dead Light of the world today

I saw the dead small and great stand before the throne
I heard a voice out of heaven calling His children home
Concluded them all in unbelief heíll have mercy on everyone
By His grace and peace the Spirit and the Bride say come




4. Take the Medication

Take the Medication

You are my deliberate infectious
You are my confessed and addiction
You are my welcomed restriction
You are my damaged contradiction

You are my self induced affliction
You are my septic convictions
You are my unsaved thoughts
Now I got to let you go

There is one answer thereĎs one touch
Salvation is on your tongue
There is one answer thereĎs one touch
So donít you ever come undone

Take the medication
If it makes you pray
Take the medication
If it makes you stay
Take the medication
Thereís no other way
Take the medication
If it dulls the pain




5. Inside Ourselves

Inside Ourselves

Flowers on my grave Jesus saves thatís the bitter taste of blackness
Eyes closed tight, pitch of night, starring into the face of blindness
If Iím possessed if I confess kneeling feeling the earth beneath
Stumbling mumbling it ends at the cross,
Undistinguished words make me complete.

Gazing, Raising, instinctively up, warmth to wrap the coldness
Draining, straining, all in me waning, to muster the faith of boldness
Teaching, reaching, outward and on, to touch what lays before me
Coping hoping to find a recall
Never disappointed in what I see.

We only live inside ourselves
Until someone takes us out of here

You got to stand for something
Youíve got to stop the suffering




6. Hard to Kick

Hard to Kick

American badge Caucasian white
A new minority a new chalk line
White media is not on our side
Hollywood stands beautified

Weíve kept our mouths shut let is slide
Our homeland has been occupied
You get what you get and thatís all there is
Do nothing at all if thatís how you want to live

Some donít believe they just deny it

Hard to kick against the pricks
Gnashing of the teeth
Inferno in your head
Hard to kick against

Equality / No color / No fairness act / or race
Open your eyes we are all the same
There ainít no white heaven, ainít no black hell
Thereís only Christ and heís not for sale

Parasites and demons donít believe in either one
Iíve never been afraid of what Iíve become
Following the screams and the smell of fear
Listened for the truth with my fingers in my ears




7. Fuel and Fire

Fuel and Fire

I drive a 69 Lincoln with suicide doors
A modified engine I put 4 on the floor
Head lights glowing like the devils eyes
When I fire it up youíll go blind

From the tail pipe we got red brimstone
When I drive by it rattles your bones
The horn howls like the hounds of hell
Got demons in the backseat ringing those bells

Fuel and Fire got no place to hide
I ride the lightening and I never die
Fuel and Fire canít you read the signs
I am in your head I fall from the skies

The highway that I run is paved with ash
I always borrow and I never pay back
Poor little souls praying for their loved ones
I wonít stop burning till the killing gets done

If you feel the ground shake and see black clouds roll
Iím going to warn you Iím stirring the coals
When you see me coming it is too late
If your eyes on me then youíve sealed your fate

I am the antiChrist I am the anguish that you wear
I am your covering a long piercing dead stare
I am your veil of flesh that blinds you from the truth
I am humanity the mortal man shall never rule

I am the drugs you take that gets you closer to your God
I am all the things that you never thought you would become
I know you hate me for itís written in your own blood
So go ahead and kill me and youíll stand where I have stood




8. Breathless

Breathless

Her hair was the color of redemption
She had almond lips her skin was alive
She was looking for a new Savior
Didnít want to be left behind

Have you ever seen a girl?
With clouds in her eyes
Her face as clear as a summerís day
She was eternally alive

She leaves me breathless, hypnotized, mystified
This is the power of the crucified an endless life

She donít wear cheap distractions
Like the neon ghost inside
Sheís addicted to the experience
And all the scars she could find

She makes me hear the earth spin
Iíve been a broken penny in a well
She is the spine laid in my back
Got me holding my breath again




9. Prodigious Savant




10. Bang Goodbye

Bang Goodbye

Living off the fumes of my fading reputation
Looking down the road at my darling aggravation
Craving a hit star struck infatuation
Chained like a dog choking humiliation

Got myself in another tight situation
Living on an island simple imagination
Breathing hard with feeble calculations
My mind spreads its wings universal liberation

Living with hope chemical frustration
My flesh is burning with carnal limitations
War within spiritual castration
Armageddon goes bang goodbye the population

CHORUS
I want I need, Jesus didnít fail
I feel I love, Come on, Come on
A world where no one cries
A world where no one dies
Iíll find my way back home

Acid in my eyes, Gall upon my tongue
Cyanide and vinegar I stole a handful from the sun
Is it time, Iíve seen the priest
Wearing black white color glow
Thereís nothing he can do for me




11. Rise Above

Rise Above

Iíve knelt at the cross held His burnished feet
I have embraced the body lifeless in my arms
I laid His head upon His pillow so gently
And watched the stone be rolled

Living not dead giving I said

Christ lives in me

Rise above, rise above it all
Rise above, rise above it all
When are we going to rise above it all?

I watched and I prayed and I fell asleep again
When I awoke there was no sign of Him
The Tomb it was empty no body no sign
And I fell to the earth defeated and I cried

Why do you weep?
Where have they laid Him?
He spoke my name
Promised to never forsake us.

I laid His head upon His pillow so gently
And watched the stone be rolled
The Tomb it was empty no body no sign
And I fell to the earth defeated and I cried




12. The Government

The Government Song

Weíre the Super Power, Godís of the hour
We got God on our side, you canít hide
Cause we got the bomb, in the Promised Land
One nation under whom? Got blood on our hands

I am bigger than the government
I am hungrier than the poor
Anybody with one good eye can see
That nothing good comes from war

Generals and Presidents think itís a coincidence
You know world dominance pride and prejudice
Blow it up build it back, pat our enemies on the back
Drop our bombs roll our tanks teach our foes how to give thanks

I met the spies sent from the government
All their dirty money says in God we trust
You vote them in then you want them out
You sell democracy I have my doubts

Send our kids, march the poor on TV. Knives to their throats
Spilling blood making bombs body bags will never vote
Meaningless rituals politics is on parade
Repeating the past like criminals who is the renegade?
Canít we live in the peace that we create?
No man can serve two maters you have something to explain
Thereís no hope in your creed a man must live on his knees
I have no faith in institutions I believe in revolution




13. Super Ego Star

Super Ego Star

Iím going super Nova
Sheís the Perfect Holy Rolla
If the Starrs refuse to shine
Let me down for the glorified
Just lead me to the stage
Thatís where Iíll be found
Iíll be Born Again no kamikaze sound

Itís a slow burn a slow burn
Iím a Super Ego Star
Gotcha Gotcha by the hand
World gets more bizarre

Gothic Black City
Star Gazer what a pity
Making sense of shattered souls
Bethlehemís Child
Dropped in a world gone wild
No tears today
just a sun face glow

While Iím burning pray for me
This is not who Iím supposed to be
Dear sweet Jesus meet me half way
Between here and the grave




14. Hang On
