Track Name: Human Torch
You replaced right or wrong with faith or unbelief.
Predestined I am onto you, but still I’m struck with grief.
Why oh soul so downcast when I know His word is true?
Why oh God so faithful when I constantly doubt you?

(1st Chorus)
But no! Enough! No more!
Lord, give me strength to fight this war.
God set me ablaze with fire above.
A light-bringing torch to those you love.

My heart so tangled in lies; my intentions veiled from light.
Darkened skies hide the path, the only truth, from sight.
Why oh world reject Him when for you He suffered loss?
He a God so loving, that for us He endured the cross.

(2nd Chorus)
But you! Your love! Your glory!
Lord, give me courage to tell your story.
God set me ablaze with fire above.
A light-bringing torch to those you love.

No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no heart conceived,
what God has prepared,
for those who love...
Track Name: Rendered Innocuous
Adam first sinned and I have followed.
With tainted blood I walked & wallowed.
Cursed from birth, destined to die.
My body decays before your eyes.
I attempt to fight, but there is no resisting.
Like dung my efforts in stench consisting.
With bleeding hands, with weighty conviction,
He exchanged His life for my affliction.

(Chorus)
He first raised and I will follow.
DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?
When in our midst His praises bellow.
DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?
Exalted He stands, the right hand of power.
DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?
His return, the final hour.
DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?

He first raised and I will follow.
Flesh turned dust in 6 feet shallow.
My body replaced; an immaculate prize.
In glory bathed before your eyes.
I ran from grace, but there is no resisting,
like moths to light; boa’s constricting.
His love, His grace, His revelation,
the effect of which; my transformation.

(Chorus)
He first raised and I will follow.
DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?
When in our midst His praises bellow.
DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?
Exalted He stands, the right hand of power.
DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?
His return, the final hour.
DEATH, WHERE IS YOUR STING?

Come & get me! Death, take me home!
Move swiftly! Death, take me home!
Track Name: Descent to Hell
I have felt the flames of Hell and seen them scorching,
the living corpse I would be when sin crushes my soul.
I have knelt down in this line waiting for Lucifer
to capture my existence. I will be tortured forever.

(Bridge)
Scream! Hear them die.
Shrieking, “Help me”
Change your life round
Before you go…

(Chorus)
DOWN! Death to the world.
DOWN! Plummet in Sin.
DOWN! Gates of Hell.
DOWN! Before you go.

I have seen the end times and if you don’t transform
I, God, will destroy you. You will stand that line to
Hell and burn your afterlife, for the sins you’d never repent.

I have cried out and
you have heard my plea
Lord I am Yours now.
You have saved me
form this life.
Track Name: The Dead Walk Among Us
I see the dead, as they walk among us.
Erratic they walk, stumbling in speech.
Searching for light that always deceives.

Zombie-like, crawling on all fours.
Eyes lifted up to a dark barren sky.
Murder, rape, demonic civil wars.
In lust-filled sin they begin to die.
An image of hate, painted in sadness.
A portrait of rage, coloured with madness.
Oh brute beasts, what have we become?
Bathe in blood, die in the Son!

(Chorus)
I see the dead as they walk among us.
Erratic they walk, stumbling in speech.
Searching for light that always deceives.
I see the dead as they die among us.

Vampiric creatures come to the light.
Come to Christ, come die tonight.
Be born again in second birth.
Cast off these chains that bind to the earth.
Raise your hands, freedom in sight.
Lift your heads, redemption is nigh.
No other way, just one open door.
The sin that binds will hold you no more!

(Chorus)
I see the dead as they walk among us.
Erratic they walk, stumbling in speech.
Searching for light that always deceives.
I see the dead as they die among us.

I see the dead as they live among us!
I see the dead as they cry out His praises!
Track Name: To The Slaughter
Shall famine, distress, tribulation, persecution or sword
separate us from Him who conquered the grave?
When we, like sheep, to the slaughter
Can share in His sorrow, thus heirs to His throne.

(Chorus)
Who’ll lay charge, when it’s God who justifies?
Where’s my accuser, when sin remains crucified?
We more than conquerors in Him
be justified, sanctified, glorified!

Death nor life, nor angel or demonic strive,
No past or future, no power dead or alive,
Can change these words once spoken by The One
Like a lam to the slaughter; “It is done.”

(Chorus)
Who’ll lay charge, when it’s God who justifies?
Where’s my accuser, when sin remains crucified?
We more than conquerors in Him
be justified, sanctified, glorified!
Track Name: Molested Innocence
Children, beautiful, innocent,
a soul that believes and dreams.
Innocence stolen, raped and abused,
a world now entered of sin and evil.
Innocence lost forever,
Souls wounded deep.
Beliefs fade and turn into disbelief, distrust,
of everything and everyone!
Dreams remain dreams… Dreams remain dreams…

(Chorus)
Sexual abuse, NOT just a physical act.
Sexual abuse, NOT just forgotten about.
Sexual abuse, sick, evil, perverse.
Satanic, pain, hurt, distrust, wounded soul, secrets kept.
Things now hidden… Things now hidden…

A life lived far from God.
Things in life never make sense!
I’m always second best.
Leave me alone.
I’m the king of my world.
I don’t need you or anyone.
I have everything I need right here,
When’s the next drugs, alcohol.
Addiction please…Addiction please…

(Repeat Chorus)

God is guiding your life.
It may not seem like it, it may not feel like it.
One day His glory will be shown.
In your life, in your pain.
I pray for this, arrest her heart Lord,
Change her Jesus

The day has come,
I can’t wait any longer to hold my child.
I’m sorry my child,
It was wrong; you’re the innocent one.
I wept over you.
I love you, I watched over you.
Come close, let me embrace you, heal you.
Come talk to me, we have your whole past to catch up,
and a future still to live…
Track Name: Evangelion
Sword heaved through desert sand.
Strength fade, arm and hand.
Breathe deep, signal trumpet call.
My last act before I fall.

(Chorus)
His sacrifice will never fade!
His love for us be evergreen!
The ground is shook by many feet,
of those who’ve heard Evangelion!

My gaze lifts, I look around.
Many heard the trumpet sound.
I sense our hope, my strength return.
Charge the hordes, its time to burn!

(Chorus)
His sacrifice will never fade!
His love for us be evergreen!
The ground is shook by many feet,
of those who’ve heard Evangelion!

Evangelion!
Evangelion!
Evangelion!
Evangelion!
Track Name: Blood Hunt Labyrinth
I wake but yet I dream, No escape from things unseen
Unambiguous route but still I’m blind, trapped in this maze my mind
A creature stalks my blood, my flesh, shadows dance
I feel its breath, my skin, sends shivers down my spine
Blurred choices of path, these wretched demons
My every step they laugh, their eyes pierce my soul
They hunt, tormenting me, these visuals I see
Minotaur stalks my scent, twisting my spirit bent.

We run, we hide,. Our souls grown blind
Cling to deception. We spiral down in darkness

Hope like sand slips through my hands
Time that’s passed, I can’t go back
Blood hunt screams, insanity bleeds
Choking me, severed from God!

I sense it’s presence near, my grasp on life deter
Death stench the only sound, tormented souls surround
Silence, deaf my ears, sanity’s loss I fear
This Labyrinth now my life, this maze a burning knife
Wounded I flee from this, the air thickens mist
My tortured death I see, as thousands pick at me
I cry out in vain, deaf ears hear my pain
Choices regret, I groan, flesh tearing from my bone
I left the path of faith
Ran from my protective rock
I walk now with all I forgot
Hades deceived me
This labyrinth now my lie!
Track Name: Black
V1
Legions gather from dust and stone
Their numbers are many, flame and bone
(Creatures from Blackened breath)
The dead rise, their time has come
Hell and its slaves will follow again
(From beneath hoods of wicked)
come serpents, beasts of earth, black as night
So are we one of them?

CH
BLACK!
I am a demon
BLACK!
I am a beast
BLACK!
Fallen angel
BLACK!
Let go!

V2
Armies of Heaven blaze and burn
Millions form, my faith return
(Clothed in white, open skies)
Hunt flesh, rip death from eyes
Thousands stand united as one
(The battles rage has just begun)
Earth collides and I am spared
Raised me up
Fall on your knees and praise our God!

CH

CODA
Fear I will not for the hunt will stand
My Lord, my God, my faithful hand
War screams but you are there, out ahead but I know you're here
Fight my fight, protect your child
Come down now Holy fire
Come down now Holy fire!!
Track Name: Broken Glass Reflection
I stare in the mirror, this broken glass reflection.
Am I a man or am I a beast?
To what level have I descended, such utter rejection.
Blistered with sin, hatred and disease.
I claw at my face, the mask peels away.
The leering grin of death is revealed.
I am wretched, naked, pitiful and diseased.
I thought I hid it well. I thought it was concealed!

(Chorus)
I am steeped in sin, born in iniquity.
I am covered in shame, dying in conformity.
O wretched man that I am!
Who will save me from this body of death?

I stare in the mirror, this broken glass reflection.
Drops of blood bleed upon the shards of light.
Blood not of my own, but blood of the Son
Pouring through shredded veins for my imperfection.
You hung in my place, murdered my flesh.
Gazed in my eyes, spat in the face of death.
Humbled and fallen, I rise in Your embrace
Shattered and broken, You bled for my disgrace!

(Chorus)
I am steeped in sin, born in iniquity
I am covered in shame, dying in conformity
O wretched man that I am!
Who will save me from this body of death?
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!
