Track Name: Hard Heads
What do you want? What do you want to see?
Signs and wonders? Brimstone and fire?
It wouldn’t matter, you’ve chosen not to see
You’re only blind ‘cause you’ve chosen to be
Hard heads, black hearts, no hope, no god
We took the knife and stuck it in our hearts
Destroyed our values for the sake of knowledge
Peace is out of reach ‘cause truth is relative
So do what you want, everything will be ok
We’ll kill ourselves to find ourselves
We threw away God to do it ourselves
Track Name: Quiet Man
I am a quiet man, I am a humble man
I stay inside, I lead a quiet life
I work then sleep, I sleep then work
I do the 9 to 5, I am dead, not alive
I’ve died inside, I’ve died inside
Trapped inside this soulless life
Who am I anyway?
A nameless ghoul on the great conveyor belt
But the sun will set and the moon will rise
I shall have my day, the wolf will have its way
The beast inside comes out
I’m a monster through and through
I am a quiet man, I am a humble man
I will cut you down from behind these prison walls
I am safe inside, I will make you cry
I will make you see the same as me
I will use my teeth to rip your flesh away
My nightmare will be your nightmare
I’m a wolf and you’re the sheep
But the sun will set and the moon will rise
I shall have my day, the wolf will have its way
The beast inside comes out
I’m a monster through and through
Track Name: Rattle & Roll
Tonight, tonight
We’re all just fine
Shake our hearts and grab ahold
Rise up, rise up
Oh daughters and sons
Lift your voice, rejoice
Shake, shake, rattle and roll, rattle and roll, rattle and roll
Tonight, tonight
We’ll dance and sing
Lift our spirits high and free
Rise up, rise up
Oh daughters and sons
Life your voice, rejoice
Shake, shake, rattle and roll, rattle and roll, rattle and roll
Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
The night away
Rattle the drums
Make some noise
Track Name: Courage
I lack the confidence
To speak the words
I know you need
I know you need to hear
I lack the courage
To pick you up
To pick you up
When you have fallen
God brings purpose
But I’m crippled with fear
The path lays open
But I walk away
Give me the courage
To live with purpose
Track Name: Open
We walk, we stumble
Through this thing called life
We fight, we fall
We will risk it all
We search, to find
Answers to questions
That burn, inside
Our hearts and our minds
We seek, the truth
The truth that will set us free
Our hearts, our minds
May they be as one
Reveal, Your truth
So that we may see
Your light, Your hand
That is in everything
Open our hearts
Open our eyes
Open our minds
We seek, we find
When it’s truth that we seek
Jesus, the Christ
The way, the truth, the life
My heart, my mind
Belong to God
The peace, of mind
The void is filled inside
We seek, the truth
The truth that will set us free
Our hearts, our minds
May they be as one
Reveal, Your truth
So that we may see
Your light, Your hand
That is in everything
Track Name: Powerviolence
Slashed in the face
Tooth knocked out
Ice in our veins
When push comes to shove
We drop the gloves
Take the puck, down the ice
Crash the net
Pass, shoot, score
Light up the lamp
Slashed in the face
Tooth knocked out
Ice in our veins
When push comes to shove
We drop the gloves
Track Name: Drown Your Guilt
Blood split, murdered Son
Cut to pieces, ripped to shreds
Blood soaked hands, no one is innocent
I am drowning, I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe
Guilt consuming, I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe
Blood is falling, I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe
Rescue me!
Kill…kill…kill…
Track Name: Heart Beat
Cobbled Streets and alley ways
Back roads with no place to go
Short days and long nights
I drank whiskey, you drank some tea
Your hand in mine, we walked in line
Side by side, we kept in time
No hesitations, no plans
Just visions of glory from a haunted past
Crowds of strangers, their muffled voices
We passed doors of yellow and blue
Bright colors, for bright eyes
I held your hand, you held my heart
Off together, in suspended time, because..
Our hearts beat
To the rhythm of the streets
Cool breeze and shuffling feet
Bright lights, light up the night
I catch their flicker in the glimmer of your eyes
We took it slow…
We didn’t want to miss a sight
We were lost, lost in the city
We were lost, lost in each other
You cracked a smile, I fell in love
Get lost with me, get lost with me again, because..
Our hearts beat
To the rhythm of the streets
Cool breeze and shuffling feet
Bright lights, light up the night
I catch their flicker in the glimmer of your eyes
Get lost with me…
There’s a chill in the air
But we don’t care
We move on, on, on
Track Name: Lighthouse
Shine through the darkness
Cast down Your light
Upon the breaking waves
Pierce through the clouds
Ships set sail
Look to Your brilliance
A glimmer of hope
Amongst the rocks and waves
You are…the hope
Through these troubled waters
You shine…Your light
Salvation comes to us
Turn Your light on
Shine through the clouds
Light up the darkness
Let them know
They're not alone
Guide them home
Track Name: Death Grip
The sun breaks through
Storm clouds, black
No more dark days
The Son light shines through
No more weeping
My distraught offspring
No more sad days
The joyous Spring blooms
Shout for joy, even rocks shall cry out, even rocks shall cry out
Shout for joy, even rocks shall cry, even rocks shall cry out
Death’s grip loosens
With Winter’s melting snow
Life springs from death
Nothing can contain it
Shout for joy, even rocks shall cry out, even rocks shall cry out
Shout for joy, even rocks shall cry, everything shall cry out
Cast off your worries
Pay them no mind
Shed your worn torn skin
Know peace evermore
Shout for joy, even rocks shall cry out, even rocks shall cry out
Shout for joy, even rocks shall cry, even rocks shall cry, even rocks shall cry, every rock shall cry out
Track Name: Fueling Anger, Fighting Logic
We all talk, we speak to argue
But we run in circles
It keeps running, running and running
Spitting nothing but hate
Fueling anger and fighting logic
Failing just to see
When you listen closely and anger slowly
It kills your vanity
We all talk, we speak our minds
Before we know what we are saying
We all talk, words just pour out
But we’re not listening
It keeps running, running and running
Spitting nothing but hate
Fueling anger and fighting logic
Failing just to see
When you listen closely and anger slowly
It kills your vanity
Track Name: The Silencing
Free speech, free thought
Only if you agree with them
Free speech, free thought
They bully us to keep us silent
Free speech, free thought
Speak your mind, they’ll tear you down
Free speech, free thought
Silencing
Free speech, free thought
You’re not going to scare us silent
Free speech, free thought
We don’t have to agree with you
Free speech, free thought
We all have the right to speak our mind
Free speech, free thought
What right, what right
Do you have, to silence me
