Track Name: Age of Innocence
In a time when integrity is tarnished with no remorse
Where being in right-standing is considered a disease
To become impure has become a source
To set one's mind at ease

You have been given an irreplaceable pearl
Cast it not away for the sake of mere approval

Be aware
Of the Lord's constant calling
For the walls wherein you dwell
May rise up in judgment against you

Authentic love will wait, yearning for that day
When the Lord will bring two souls in unity
Deposit not your beauty you only once can give
Only to be lost in a world where consciousness is short-lived

The age of innocence should never perish

(Romans 13:12-14; Hebrews 13:4)
Track Name: Double Curiosity
The work of sin leaves a callous on my soul
Leading unto death
Mandatory born into this nature
Since my very first breath

At first sin was fun but now I'm paying
For all of my mischievous deeds
I want to know what I have so much pain
Can someone tell me please?

Because of a man I'm destined to die
Along with the people I see
Unbearable pain, the worm never dies
Weeping and gnashing of teeth
The man's name: Adam, the sun: disobedience
No part in this do I want
But now it's too late, I've dug my own grave
The memory, this fate will now haunt

There's no way out as there was a way in
The paint of temptation that dries into sin
God had once told you, "You would surely die"
Your sin has affected me, now I must cry

Why did You die for me?
Why did You not leave me be?
He ate from the fruit of the tree
My eyes can see, why?

Who is this man who died on the cross
Whose mission was to seek and save
Destroying the sin originated by Adam
At the abandonment of the grave
The man's name: Jesus, the work: obedience
Obeying the Father unto death
Eviction of sin at the cry, "It is finished!"
Before His dying breath

I know I'm not worthy of all that You give
The simplicity of receiving to live
Take me in, receive me from strife
I want to serve You the rest of my life

Why would You die for me
Give Your life to set me free?
It's all because You love me
And I thank You Jesus for what You've done

"Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous."

(John 3:16-17; Romans 5:17-19)
Track Name: Hellrazer
Arrogant one stands tall
Forcing masses to fall prostrate
View the idol made of gold
Homage to this man of hate

Threefold denial
Cast into the flames
Acknowledgement of faith
Diving Protector came

If God is for us who can be against us?
The world and its desires pass away
Your oppression has come to an end

Pain - the massive pain
Hear - blood-curdling screams
Feel - the fires of Hell
Within - the Second Death

Satan screams as he loses all control

(Daniel 3; Romans 8:31, 16:20; 1John 2:16-17; Revelation 20:14)
Track Name: Requiem
Behold the killing fields
The hordes preparing for battle
The angelic host stands ready
Lucifer doomed to fall
War broke out in Heaven
Angelic blood was shed
Michael and his angels fought
The dragon and his angels bled

Satan was not strong enough
Lost his place above
The great dragon was hurled down
That ancient serpent called the devil
Who leads the whole world astray

Day of wrath, the day of mourning
See fulfilled the prophets' warning
Heaven and Earth in ashes burning

I saw Satan plummet
Like lightning from the skies
He prowls like a roaring lion
To devour with his demise
I saw an angel
Come down out of Heaven
He holds the key
The chains are ready

He seized the ancient serpent
Bound him for a thousand years
Thrown into the Abyss
Locked and sealed

When the thousand years are over
Satan will be released
To deceive the nations

Legions have been gathered
Like the sands of the seashore
They march across the earth
Surrounding God's people

"But fire came down from Heaven and devoured them. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever."

(Revelation 12:7-9, 20:1-3, 20:7-10; Luke 10:18; 1Peter 5:8)
Track Name: Burn No More
Embers of pain flicker through the night
Aware, leading to the furnace of hopelessness once again
All alone, cries seem as whispers
Thoughts of your voluntary murder, but the final doom awaits

Victimized, my life raped by evil
Turn the page of life to another hellish chapter
The last words written in blood
The undying will to live, amputated

Salvation obtained, impossibly earned
Crimson skeletons behind the closet to burn
Jesus, Lord and Master of All
Gives me life, I burn no more

Life, peace, love, joy
I welcome you to meet new life in Jesus

(Romans 7:24-25; Ephesians 4:22-23)
Track Name: Night of the Living Dead
Severed the lusts of the flesh
No torment to be found thereof
Banishment of the guilt within
Grace given freely from the Father above
I'm dead to the flesh
The life that I live is now my faith in Christ
Now I'm alive
Living dead, walking through the night

Night of the living dead
Illumination of the dark
Through the power of Jesus Christ

Where will you go
When the soul is all you've got left?
Accountable for one's own actions
You're responsible for your death
To your sins you must die
Put on the full armor of God
Dismember mortality
Clothe yourself with the power of God

(Colossians 2:13, 3:3, 3:5; Ephesians 6:11)
Track Name: No Compromise
They question God's ministry
We give our lives to Jesus Christ
We will not change to ease the minds of men
There will be no compromise

Rejection through closed eyes
Denying the chance to lead
Hearing only screaming
They believe we're in sin

They fail to see what we're doing
Spreading the Word of Jesus Christ

We choose to see
To lead through our ministry
Giving our talents back to the Lord
There will be no compromise

In our heaviness, we praise Him
We will never give ground to Satan
In our heaviness, we praise Him
We will never back down

They fail to see what we're doing
Spreading the Word of Jesus Christ
We will not change to ease the minds of men
There will be no compromise

(1Corinthians 9:19-23, 12:12-14; Romans 12:4-5)
Track Name: Strength
Do you believe you're more powerful than I?
This spiritual strength comes from the authority of God
Do you believe you're more powerful than Him?
Your presence makes me want to vomit

I call upon the angels of the Lord in the name of Jesus
To smite the pathetic demons present
To dismantle their deceptions
To bind all their lies

Satan, you lost the battle long ago
I rebuke you and your demons, so weak
I dismantle the deceptions
I bind all the lies

Spiritual authority has taken control
No longer will you deceive me

I'm covered by the blood of Jesus Christ
In the name of Jesus, flee!

(Luke 10:17-19; Ephesians 1:7; James 4:7)
Track Name: Reborn
Clawing at the walls
Alone with my sinful nature
Left to die
No hope for me, my soul lies bleeding

Reaching out, it's like nobody's there
Choked on the lies, I spit in the air
The pain I have given is now plain to see
The life I have chosen has walked out on me

I've heard it all before
It never meant that much to me
How a Man I didn't know
Could suffer and die in humility
For a soul as lost as mine
And actions undeserving of a Savior's love
I felt just like the prodigal son
And crying out I reached for God above

I believed
You came and took my hand
You set me free
In victory I stand
I'm relieved
No longer insecure
I received
A perfect love from a heart so pure

(Luke 15:11-31; Romans 8:37-39; Galatians 5:1)
Track Name: Shield
I will exalt You O Lord
For You lifted me out of the depths
You did not let my enemies
Gloat over me

O Lord my God I called to You for help
And You healed me
You brought me out of the grave
Out of the pit

Give praise to Him you saints of His
Praise His holy name
Weeping may last for a night
But joy comes in the morning

I lie down and sleep, I wake again
For the Lord sustains me
I will not fear tens of thousands
That come against me on every side
Arise O Lord
Deliver me
Break the teeth of the wicked

(Psalm 30:1-5, 3:3-7)
Track Name: Twisted Words
You said you loved Me, I believed
I gave My will and you agreed

Over time your own path you've made
Even after the price I paid
You tried so hard to follow My path
But twisted words have churned up wrath

Time is short, there's work to be done
But futile quarrels have begun
Enter the bedlam, the innocent pay
From closed minds within the twisted day

The victim is you, not Me
It is for My glory that you should see
Instead of sharing My love with friends
The dissension among you already begins

Time is short, your unknown destiny has been set
Feel destruction's breath breathing down your neck
You blame this on others and fight in your homes
To keep from having to leave your comfort zones
Tribulation is over, the days of life are gone
Your friends aren't with you and you wonder where they went wrong
Your life is at an end, your flesh given to birds
Only because my trials you failed due to twisted words

An unseen lampstand
Thereupon is a star
Its life faintly flickers
Seen from afar

As rivers of fury and oceans of hatred grow
The lampstand is darkened and with it its glow
You must not grow weary or forget what you've heard
Blood was shed on the cross before those twisted words

(Matthew 5:14-16, 7:15-16; 1Timothy 4:1; 2Timothy 2:24; James 4:14; 1Thessalonians 4:17; Revelation 1:20)
