Sanctuary
Follow me down to the sanctuary.
I'll show you where all of the bones are buried.
A place of righteous sacrifice.
The spirit He bids you attend tonight.

Those who attend this will live to tell,
The holy torment of angels that fell.
Those who reject this will live out the lie,
And go to the place where the pain never dies.

Some know the truth,
And some truly believe.
Some will press on and won't stop 'til they're free.

I won't hear the voices of strangers.
No longer hear, the voices of strangers.
I won't follow the voice of a stranger.
I won't hear the voices of strangers anymore.
 
 
Theater of War
Cain killed his brother and the blood began to flow.
Gathering momentum into a torrid flood of woe.
War made its entrance into the virgin realm of man.
Steel forged in hatred brought the drama of the damned.

The reaper's standing just inside the backstage door.
Waiting for the players in the theater of war.

Man's quest for power for fortune and for fame,
Brought the blood of battle and the cannon's glory blaze.
Leaders make their speeches, propaganda's mind control.
Bezerkers in a frenzy as the madness takes it's toll.

Massive destruction.
Missiles, guns and war machines,
See the butchered bodies as we play another scene.

Armageddon's coming we're at relevation's door.
Final performance for the theater of war.
 
 
Traces of Grace
In a world of flesh and money, carnal society.
See the waves of brainwashed zombies,
Marching to the rhythm of a master's beat.
Living in a pressure cooker, constant anxiety.
In the street there's paranoia.
"Why is everybody always looking at me'"

We live in faithless torment. Like a puppet on a string.
Drowning on the waves of the devil's sea.
There's more to life than riches.
Feeding the lust of the beast.
Chasing the image of a fading dream.

I'm yearning for freedom, from chains of this bondage.
I'm hoping, reaching, searching for traces of grace.

We live in fragile bodies, struck with mortality.
The sands of time are running,
Lost to the realms of eternity.
So, tell me this my brother, my sister if you please,
What's your defining purpose at this point of reality'

We live in faithless torment. Like a puppet on a string.
Drowning on the waves of the devil's sea.
There's more to life than riches.
Feeding the lust of the beast.
Chasing the image of a fading dream.

I'm yearning for freedom, from chains of this bondage.
I'm hoping, reaching, searching for traces of grace.
 
 
Wisdom
Life is a journey that you must take my son
Take care and live it well because there's only one
Remember there's a purpose that you were meant to be
You have a heart, you have a mind, you are humanity
Listen!
Challenges will come
Storms will rage against your heart
Face them and be strong
Face them and be strong!

A lifetime of learning is what I give you
When you make a choice in life, be sure to think it through
Wisdom holds a treasure of knowledge in her hands
Take care and love her well, you'll be a better man
Listen!
Learn to understand
Use the gifts that you possess
Find your destiny
Dare to live your dreams
Challenges will come
Storms will rage against your heart
Face them and be strong
Face them and be strong!

Watch your back, protect your mind
Always keep your objectives clear till the day you die
Find your destiny
Dare to live your dreams

Pain will come, tears will fall
Guard your heart, keep your vision clear, rise above it all
Find your destiny
Dare to live your dreams
Find your destiny

Can't you feel the hunger that's growing in your heart?
Let your gifts consume you, let them tear your fears apart
Hear the voice of reason that's calling from the sky
Face the winds of future with a fire in your eyes
 
 
The Warning
I saw a bird of heaven fall before the dawn of time.
Satan and his angels, lords of sin, lords of crime.
Then in the garden of Eden a tragic thing took place.
Man became a fallen sinner. Fallen from God, fallen from grace.

I saw the crimson line all trough history.
The need for a messiah to set the world free.

He was born a common child. He lived a life of poverty.
But He had a hidden plan the people could not see.
He healed the sick, He healed the lame,
He raised the dead from their graces.
A sacrificial lamb on the altar
His precious life he gave.

I saw the blood stream down the hill they call the skull.
I heard, "It is finished" as the rain began to fall.

The warlords gathered 'round the table to plot their strategy.
Satan and his demons smile in evil glee.
The battle of all the age is about to take place.
Evil seeking to devour the pure and holy race.

I saw the fire come down from God in heaven above.
Evil gone forever by the wrath of holy love.

Listen closely people to what I have to say.
Just around the corner, destruction's on its way.
 
 
Sarah Williams
How many times must I feel this way
The fool who never learns
Selfish pleasures override my thoughts
Give that wheel just one more turn
Drunken stupidity rules my mind
And things aren't what they seem
How many times must I feel this way
I wish it were all a dream, a dream

I'm sorry about your sorrow, I'm sorry about your pain
If I could turn back the hands of time
I'd make things new again
I'm sorry about your anger, I'm sorry about your rage
If I could do one thing in this world
I'd make her live again

Once such a happy young man
Now a shell of broken dreams
Taken from me all that I am
Myself the only one to blame
My heart is filled with the blood of guilt
But nothing can I say
I see the anger in everyones eyes
For the life I've taken away

I'm sorry about your sorrow, I'm sorry about your pain
If I could turn back the hands of time
I'd make things new again
I'm sorry about your anger, I'm sorry about your rage
If I could do one thing in this world
I'd make her live again

A friend they've lost forever gone
Not a chance to say goodbye
Forever imbedded in their thoughts
Why did she have to die?
The life I've taken burns inside me
Always there to remind
You think you're life is so damned hard
Why don't you try living mine?

I'm sorry about your sorrow, I'm sorry about your pain
If I could turn back the hands of time
I'd make things new again
I'm sorry about your anger, I'm sorry about your rage
If I could do one thing in this world
I'd make her live again
Live again, live again, live again
Oh god please let, let her live again

There's no excuses for what I've done
There are no words that can change the past
Oh but I, I can't deny, I've killed an angel
While the whiskey demon burned my soul
I took the life of Sarah Williams
Now I stand and face this bitter hell
Oh Sarah Williams if you could hear
Would you forgive me?
 
 
De Machina Est Deo
(Instrumental)
 
 
Black Souls
Dark seeds were planted,
When the king gave up his throne.
Lost to deception
Through his flesh and bone.
His queen enchantress believed the dragon's lie.
Their souls infected and now began to die.

The flaming sword, the wicked spell,
Dominion lost to the gates of hell.

Vile pride brought death and fear.
Legacy of the black souls.
Sorrows grow in a sea of tears.
Legacy of the black souls.
Only the blood of the alien can kill this wicked curse,
And bring an end to the age of sin.
Legacy of the black souls.

The nails were pounded, the blood began to flow.
The horde defeated with a single blow.
Behold the potion that broke the dragon's spell.
The one who was dead
Is now alive and well.

The sacred blood, the broken spell.
Lightning crashed through the gates of hell.
Vile pride brought death and fear.
Legacy of the black souls.
Sorrows grow in a sea of tears.
Legacy of the black souls.
Only the blood of the alien can kill this wicked curse,
And bring an end to the age of sin.
Legacy of the black souls.
 
 
Critical Mass
'39
Europe's plains
Blood and fire spill again.
Warring forces set their cause.
The race for fission had begun.

Powers of destruction sought,
Hidden by the hand of God.
Took six years to conceive,
Construct, deploy, and now destroy.

Burning sky. Say goodbye to the rising sun.
In a mushroom cloud. Heaven knows what we've begun.
Firestorm, earth consumed with a fervent heat.
Power loosed, now we cannot kill this beast.

'45
Pacific isle,
A bird flies out before the dawn.
Oppenheimer's legacy is carried by Enola Gay.

Many sons owe their thanks
To the heroes of that day.
But victory was bittersweet,
As many blameless were swept away.

Burning sky. Say goodbye to the rising sun.
In a mushroom cloud. Heaven knows what we've begun.
Firestorm, earth consumed with a fervent heat.
Power loosed, now we cannot kill this beast.

Hell on earth had been released.
