1. Prelude




2. War Memorial

Awakening from a lingering slumber
The haziness dispels from my eyes
Clearly around me, I am surrounded
By enemies on every side

We give our lives up
And if we must, we will die
In His service
Our last command is our battle cry
ďStandĒ

The weapons of our warfare are mighty through God
To the pulling down of strongholds

The Peace of God, when the battleís won
All my tears are caught by the Holy One
We must stand until the end
We must stand until the end




3. Even You

Nobodyís listening to what I have to say
They donít comprehend
They think Iíll have to pray

Please . . .

Donít interrupt my mind
Distortion interferes
Lies are spoken, the truth unseen
And Satan has raped my youth

Please, Please

Natas si a rail od ton netsil ot sih seil
Od ton kool ta eht elkraps ni sih seye

And now my eyes are open wide
I see how you really are
Once a prince, now a murderer of souls
A dark and falling star
Please, please, please, please

And even you must bow down to Jesus, King of Kings
While casting down your tattered crown
At His nail scarred feet
And even you must bow down to Jesus, King of Kings
Even you must bow down




4. Raven's War

I can see the light and I can interpret the fight
A generation of the God blind
A generation with a blessed sign

Take from the rich and give to the poor
Oh Lord, train my hands for war
Oh pharisitical scribes, search your text
For the passages where the last generation comes
By the name of X

Get on your knees

They canít see the Light
The foolish confound the wise
A generation of the so-called God blind
Yet for His name, they will surely die
Yet for His name, they will surely die

Here comes the Bride
Here comes the Bride
I can see the light




5. Alliance

Heís the only way out of here
He shed His blood
He shed His blood
He shed His blood

Come to the Alliance




6. To The Unknown God

To the unknown God
From the Mosque to the Parthenon
Where are their gods?
Stone cold, dead, embossed
Iíve been to the Cross
Where you Suffered and Satan lost
You covered me in blood, wiped away the dross

And I will serve no other god

Evil men say that You donít exist
They reject You, they donít believe that they sin
And I donít want to be like them
I just want to be like Thee
I just want to seek You
For I am your friend

You made the stars
Men worship and reverence them
They call themselves gods
But did they give their breath to them?

Holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty
Holy, hold is the Lord God Almighty

As I begin to take my steps toward your fire in the sky
Just to touch Your face
And my hair to turn woolen-white
Yeshua, Abba, Father
Your Kingdom that is to come
Iím a stranger in a strange land
I must return to the Land of the Son
Lord of the Son
Lord of the Son




7. Outbuckett

You captured me and bought my soul
Where You lead me I will go
And in Your presence I fall to my knees
Just in knowing who You are

My tears - they wash Your feet
For You have forgiven me
Your blood - it washed my sin
So I could begin again

And You love me, You do not leave
And nobody can take that away from me

My tears - they wash Your feet
For You have forgiven me
Your blood - it washed my sin
So I could begin again

Sign my name in your Book of Life
Wonít You sign my name in your Book of Life?
Wonít You sign my name in your Book of Life?




8. Crystal River

He was the best friend anyone could have had
The reason he did what he did
Was Ďcause he hurt so bad
And I know heís in Heaven, no longer living in pain
Heís under the shelter of the Most High
Heís out of the rain

Lay your head down, sleep tight
Youíll always be in my heart
My little brother for eternal life
And weíre anxious, but we know you wait
We know youíll wait
To take us by the hand, into another land
Through those pearly gates

And my eyes are filled with wonder and stories
That cannot be told
I remember the demons surrounding me
And taking their hold
He washed away my acid tears
And fought the fight that I could not fight
Then all of the demons and fear
Were consumed with his holy light

I can hear the angels sing and now I understand
I enter the gates of Heaven holding Jesusí hand
Look, thereís Daddy, and the animals talk
And the lion lays down with the lamb
Now I stand by the crystal river
In the bosom of Abraham

I will live forever
With the First Born of the Dead
I will live forever
With the First Born of the Dead
I will live forever
I will live forever




9. Lamb

Lamb, you have gone astray
Lamb, you have gone away
And I will leave the ninety-nine
ĎCause you are mine

Lamb, you have gone away
Lamb, you have gone astray
And I will leave the ninety-nine
ĎCause you are mine

Peace, peace I give to you
Peace I give to you
Peace I give to you, my child




10. No More Night

The Bible says life passes like a shadow
And I know
And as I got older words were said that I regret
Oh, but yet
Life goes on after life
In the light, no more night
Donít be afraid, donít be scared
Donít you worry
He knows the very number of the hairs on your head
And when you take your final breath
Got to your long-awaited rest
And we will meet at Heavenís gates
And I can hardly wait
Forevermore!

Life goes on after life
In the light, no more night
Donít be afraid, donít be scared
Donít you worry
He knows the very number of the hairs on your head




11. Bury The Dead

Lord, when You call in the night
ďWhat would Your servant do?
What land are you sending me to?Ē
And I will go for You
What about my family and friends?
Let them go
Let them go
Let them go
Let them go

Lord, Iím walking
And Iím not taking anything with me
And Iím on this road
And the voices are calling but Iím not listening
And Iím not alone
For there are those who are coming with me
And Iím on my way home

When everythingís left unsaid
Let the dead bury the dead, little brother
Get up and take your bed
Even when your last tear is shed
Follow me

Lord, my spirit is tired
I will renew your strength
And Iím in captivity
Itís for freedom I set you free
Lord Iím in much too deep
For each other to breathe
For each other to breathe
Lay it at my feet
Lay it at my feet

Lord, Iím walking
And Iím not taking anything with me
And Iím on this road
And the voices are calling but Iím not listening
And Iím not alone
For there are those who are coming with me
And Iím on my way home

When everythingís left unsaid
Let the dead bury the dead
Oh, weíre almost done
The Spirit and the Bride say
ďCome . . . marry me.Ē
Marry me




12. Omega

My children, weíre running out of time
My children, hear my cry

And I want you
And I need you, my children
Come and know my love
Come and know my Son
I am who was and is and is to come
I am who was and is and is to come

My children, why wonít you come?
Youíre my children, so why wonít you come?

My children, I gave you my Son
My children, He gave you His blood

And I want you
And I need you, my children
Come and know my love
Come and know my Son
I am who was and is and is to come
I am who was and is and is to come

My children, weíre running out of time
My children, heís coming for His Bride

ďMy children . . .Ē
