Since the album is now officially on the table as a FREE DOWNLOAD on bandcamp, I thought I would post the lyrics here for those of you that care to give them a look see. The lyrics were a collaborative effort between me and the vocalist, Russell.
Track 1: Always Been About Us All
I was the one who spit in his face. Gave him the sinner’s place.
I was the one who put him on the cross. I was the one drenched in the law.
I was the one who put him on a tree. I was the one at fault. But it was never about me.
I was the one he taught the way. I was the one he came to save. It was never about me.
I was the one he told to die. I was the one he brought new life.
Track 2: Blood Stricken Hands
Jesus Christ, slain from foundation. We are here Lord, waiting translation. By His great glory, we rejoice. Pray you hear His voice. Prove all things. Hold to which is good. Blessed are the undefiled. Walk in the law. His testament. His glory. I shall not die, but live. The God of the living. The resurrection.
He who justifies the wicked and condemns the just, will taste the wrath reserved for the harlot of lust.
By the grace of God’s son with blood stricken hands, the sacrifice was made. And my debt has been paid. And sealed by the blood of the Lamb. It is because of Him, we stand.
By His glory, we rejoice. Pray you can hear his voice.
Track 3: We Wept for Zion
Manifest in me, oh God a light unto this dying earth. Let me show them what you’re worth. If I honor myself, I honor nothing. I lift my hands unto the second coming. The firmament shows thy handiwork.
Creator of all earth and sky, and day and night. Cherubim and Seraphim were made to worship Him.
The rivers of Babylon. We sat down. We wept for Zion.
I cry, make haste. The glory of the kingdom, a high tower. Fortress so brilliant, it blossoms like a flower. Kill the deceiver. Rebuke the accuser. The bottomless pit will be his future.
Hallelujah. We praise you. You are King. My Lord, my God.
Descendants of Abraham, cry out the call.
Track 4: Rage and Regret
Careful, a man is held by injustice. Unravel his cords and all you see it wickedness. Count elections bought by the rich and I see no freedom. Only debt. Fear looks upon the weak. It’s so deprecating. I look for life. But I’m suffocating.
My destiny is eternity. Your sanctity changes everything. And it’s taking over me.
Tears of rage and regret fill my eyes. But, never once did defeat enter my mind.
Never. My destiny is eternity.
Track 5: Feast Upon the Grey
Who am I to say the stars that guide the day were made to burn this way? What am I to do? I just need to trust in you. Why do I still try to run away and hide?
Bring me home to where You are.
These bones have all but died. His fury will feast upon the grey.
Bury your idols in the flame. Carry your trials to the grave.
Track 6: Melchizedek, King of Salem
Restoration. My heart’s meditation, remove all of modification. 24 elders, 10,000 crowns. 144,000 will be found. Sing a new song.
7 bowls of wrath as the dragon makes its final grasp. A house divided cannot stand. Lead us into the promised land. Blow the trumpet until it falls. Every stone in that crumbling wall. Beguiled by the serpent. Trodden by feet. The vail was torn and through the glass we can see darkly.
Melchizedek, king of Peace.
Track 7: Onward We March
No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper. And every tongue that accuses you, in judgment You will condemn. Mountains shall fall among the trees. Stones will cry out Your praise.
Onward we march. Light unto the dark. Bringing peace and salvation.
Fear not those who can kill flesh. Their only reward is death. My God has my soul to keep. The willing and gnashing of teeth. He comes in the night like a thief. Don’t hold your breath. The wage of sin is death. Let not your heart be filled with filth.
The gift of God through Christ is eternal life. Go therefore and live.
Track 8: Last Rights
End of the earth will pay Glory to the one true God. Jesus Christ and his fiery rod. Blessed by His blood, redeemed by His grace. I long to see Your face. Raise the dead. Jesus Christ, the King of second chances. Know what your stance is. Time is running short to stand before the court. The Judge of all kings. The Judge who knows all things.
Find repentance before your final sentence.
Burned at the stake or hung to die. Spread the light. Fight the fight. A martyr’s last right. Open your eyes.
Track 9: Death Man in my Path
When He whispers the changes that bind nations shall fall. When He speaks every wave in the ocean shall halt. When He breaths every demon in hell will tremble. When he breaths every mountain will crumble.
Under his feet, vengeance He will bring. Because above Him there is nothing. At the cross my flaws I shall bury. Because, under His grace I escape His fury.
I will sing a song of hope. I will walk this narrow road.
Shadowed by the mountain of His might, I will drink from the fountain of light. No longer will I starve and parish. For that new life he will feed and cherish. Moving on, I leave a dead my man in my path.
I am free. I am free from wrath.
Oh, but when He loves it melts my heart of stone. Oh, but when He heals I find life in Him alone. When He died my heart was filled with sorrow. Because He lives I can face tomorrow.
Track 10: Fragments of War
As long as there is breath in my longs, there is still a war to be won.
Stagnant blood in my heart is but a fragment that pulls us apart. The words of my empty love build the message that You’re not enough.
No more second thoughts. No more hesitation. I pray you cleans me from desecration. Take my flaws. Take my gold. Take everything. Bring me joy. Bring me peace. Give me more than survival.
I want revival.
