Drama of the Ages
Turning and burning
I look up at the sky and see
The storm that is coming

Waiting and praying
Father give us strength
To face the day with courage

Seasons are changing
The nations
Are raging

Mysteries explained
The day of our reckoning is coming

Prophecies unfolding
Mysteries are told me
The audience is waiting
For the part we're playing

Daylight is fleeting
And mercy
Lies slain upon the floor

Darkness consuming
And freedom is painted
As a whore

Heaven is calling
Like thunder in the night
The sleeper is awaking

Counting the sorrows
Every tear remembered
By he who holds tomorrow

Prophecies unfolding
Mysteries are told me
The world stage is waiting
For the part we play
In the drama of the ages
 
 
Keeper of the Crown
Stone and mortar
Mixed with blood
Keep an ancient tale

Of the tower
And the secret
Of a mother's prayer

For the throne
Men once fought
For the right divine

In days of old
When blood was spilled
To seize the kingdom

The victor to the throne
The vanquished to the tower
One to lose his head
And one to wear the crown

Once a king notorious
Regarded man not God
Cruel and wicked in his ways
The sword his only love

Spilling blood
And spilling tears
Till all despised his name

Paving foreign lands
With tombs
Of his bravest men

Grieving wives and mothers cried
May heaven intercede
Stop the senseless sacrifice
Of their children

In the guise of glory
The nobles waged a war
They feigned to sail against a rival
On another shore

Once beyond the sight of land
The king would meet his fate
When conquered by the kingdom of
The master of the depths

In the shadow
Of the castle
Silence seized the land

On bended knee
One and all
Revered the judgement

Surely providence divine
Has revealed his hand

May his mercy ever reign
Over the hearts of man

Holy be the throne
The glory and the power
Our sovereign regale
The keeper of the crown

The victor to the throne
Till the final hour
In heaven and on earth below
Let thy will be done

Thy will be done
From the rising unto
The setting of the sun

Thy kingdom come
To God be the glory
Forever and evermore
 
 
Spinning Leaf
A slave to time as I look back on my life
A path that can lead to insanity
All the years that I leave behind me
All means nothing at the front of the gate

I look to the sky
I raise my head
Pondering the valor of the dead
The meaning of life? Who holds the key?
Can I fathoms things I cannot see?
Born into sorrow, who am I ?
Lost in the silence of the mystery
So many questions
How can I see to unlock the paradox?

Life is like a spinning leaf
Rise and fall with our valor and grief
Life is like a spinning leaf
Your world can be broken so easily

I question the lies that I've been taught
Can't hold onto this frail life I once sought
The journey begins I'm searching for light
The evidence of truth to give me sight

Reborn in fire
Flesh mortified
Bringing death to the agony
This life is now but we must look to eternity

Enslaved by my flesh as I search for the truth within myself
To see the things that I cannot see
I pray for your wisdom and your guidance because I need your knowledge to see
I give you my life the one who made me
I hold you to my soul
 
 
Stand Or Fall
See the hunger and the fire in our eyes
We won't play their tune or sing the lyric to their lies

Don't need the promises or the kindness of thieves
And we won't stand by idle as you're spreading you disease

Take your place there in the line
Blind, you leaders of the blind

While the kingdom slumbered
No one watched from the wall
Our enemies were plotting and they want to kill you all

For litany of lies
A coward sells his soul
Does the devil that you know bear the devil that you don't?

Tell me what's worth fighting for
Will you stand or fall?
Now's the time to have your say
If there's anything at all

Tell me what's worth living for
Can you hear the battle call?
If you won't even save yourself
Is there reason to live at all?

September sun was rising
Morning shadows crawled
Etched upon our minds that day
When we watched the towers fall

When the dust had settled
We joined our shaking hands
On bended knee with broken hearts
We swore never again
 
 
Tempest
Destiny
She calls to me
Lifts me from my sleep
To come and see

Steal away the stars
From the sky
This tempest turns me and I don't know why

Empty promises and compromise
Conspiring now to fill
My head with lies

Clear the clouds from my mind
Take me away to
Where you reside

Through the veil
I see a mystery
Carnival of fools
Before their kings

Eternity
She beckons me
Wakes me with a scream
To come and see

"Father
Where, art thee?
Father
Don't hide from me!"

"God is not there;
He cannot hear you!
Don't waste your time,
He never speaks!
You've lost your sight;
You have no vision.
Don't be a fool!
I own your dreams..."

Lying drained too
Tired for sleep
Father take
My soul to keep

"Where is your God?
What are you thinking?
Call to him louder;
Perhaps he's asleep
Maybe he's laughing...
You're such a fool!
It's been quite awhile;
Leave him in peace..."

Where's the voice of peace
That comforts me
Touch me with your fire and heal me

Racing thoughts
That seem to chase the wind
On an isle of doubts
I'm waiting

Why have you forsaken me?
"Hear me now!",
I'm pleading

"God is not there;
He cannot hear you!
Don't waste your time,
He never speaks!
Your God has left you!
Your cries sicken me!
Where is your pride?
Get off your knees..."

"Here I stand
In the midst of your pain
I still the storm and trials within."
 
 
Third Way
Manipulate and fabricate
A scheme to rule the masses
A rotting corpse in royal gown
Hail the throne majestic

A cancer eating at the heart of blood bought liberty
No aggressor could prevail she's falling from within

A socialist utopia
Equality for all
The ruling elite exempt themselves
From the cruel reality

Sacrificing for the goal of global unity
Atone the sins of capitalist and racist sovereignty

The third way
Is the reign of idiocy
One by one
Freedoms stripped away

The third way
The offspring of our apathy
Down we go
Into the vortex of tyranny

Bleed our inspiration
Conform at any cost
The individual must give way to new identity

Regulate, confiscate
Blind diversity
Breed the worker drones to serve in numb complacency
 
 
Forever Winter
Greet the May sky misty morning
June's crystal raindrops fall
Fields of July white with fresh snow
August's evening coldest known

Always winter
Never Christmas
Fall is but a memory
Talk of spring is foolish
Feels as though is will be
Winter forever

Embrace the wind receive her kiss
The bite of frost on skin as bliss
The cold that wraps around your bones
As the fire of passion for your lover

Release your memories to the air
And as your breath they disappear
Commit your bodies to the earth
No resurrection no rebirth
Till redemption is complete...

Fall is by a memory
Spring is but a dream
This is our curse to bear
Embrace the wind receive her kiss
The bite of frost on skin as bliss
Winter forever
 
 
Drowning Man
With a shrug and a sigh
Deeper you slide
Painting your mind closing your eyes

Seeing the signs but not asking why
The promises fade and hope leaves you dry

Bound in chains of fear and pain
Take a look through the eyes of the walking dead

Kissing the blade
Feeding the shame
Killing the pain and dying within

Trying so hard to believe the lies
You self to yourself a soul sacrificed

Memories fade of your life and crimes
And leave you insane dreaming of lies

I hear the cry of pain in your voice
Your trembling hands betraying your words

Time is a blut
One night to the next
Black when you rise and black when you rest

In a pouring rain the searching begins
Somewhere in your heart is a drowning man

Running wild crawling in sin
You cling to the blade as the bleeding begins

At the end of yourself is where this road leads
The black inner sea that's raging within

A cry in the dark as the blade's sinking in
This way isn't the way it was meant to be

From bad to worse
Can't break the curse
So the bottle's here to stay
Crawl inside and hide away

In a pouring rain the searching begins
Somewhere in your heart is a drowning man

Running wild crawling in sin
You cling to the blade as the bleeding begins

At the end of yourself is where this road leads
The black inner sea that's raging within

A cry in the dark as the blade's sinking in
This way isn't the way it was meant to be
 
 
Deceiver of the Nations
Lucifer has carved a throne in strange a city lie
Far upon a distant shore where good men seldom spy
When time was laid eternal rest with ancient earth and sky
Behold the twisted image of the city of the night

Turn, behold emerging now
Like dawn divides the night
A city rising 'bove the mountains bathed in brilliant light
Sun nor stars are seen above
No moon hangs in the sky
The glory of the holy one illuminating all

I'll exalt my throne above the stars of God
And I will ascend above the highest clouds
Before the dawn of time
You lost your place on high
The shining one
Filled with pride
Defeated, falling, as lighting from the sky

Ruling with a rod of icon
Eternal his empire
The secrets in the hearts of men
Laid open for his eyes
There is no want no jealousy within the kingdom walls
And Lucifer's conspiracy as prophesied will fail

Released from the abyss
Ablaze with vengeful lust
Free from heavens chain
To charge Jerusalem

His word a sword ablaze as fire
Raining from on high
The final victory o'er the sons of perdition is nigh
Before the world as witness for judgement now he stands
For all to see the one who brought deception to the land

Join me now my sons and find your destiny
Vengeance will be ours and we'll rule eternally

Before the dawn of time
You lost your place on high
The shining one
Filled with pride
Defeated, falling, as lighting from the sky

I am man's disease
I will rise above the earth
This world is my kingdom
I'll deceive the hearts of men

Before the dawn of time
You lost your place on high
The shining one
Filled with pride
Defeated, falling, as lighting from the sky

Faithful you once were
Rebelling still you served with the beast
The prophet in fires
Never again will Jehovah be defied

Is this the one who deceived the nations?
 
 
Cutting Words
The silence here is deafening
Pouring fuel on an open flame

Something's going to break if we can't learn to bend
New wounds atop of old
We never seem to mend

The face of fear has come to me
Whispering threats and jealousy

What is and what could be we may never see
Tomorrow hides and holds our destinies

You're killing me
I'm killing you
Will vengeance pay the debt we're due?

With cutting words I run you through
Stoke the coals till we're consumed

Each morning brings a chance to change and be renewed
We've got to stop the bleeding of souls torn in two

'Neath the sea of memory all is laid to rest
The sword that once divided sleeps beneath the depths

The winds of war may rise but will not resurrect
The weapons of our hatred
The poison of our lips

Hatred is our enemy
We must learn to let it go
Forgiveness will free the soul
We must leave the past behind
 
 
Victory
The time has come to take a stand for what is right
And to resist the attacks from the enemy
Never back down
Stand strong for what you believe
Stand united as one
From the ashes to victory

Come rush the stage
Take your place it's all right
Nothing can stop us
No mountain too high

Don't live your life t look back and regret
What could've been if you had tried

Take hold the power
It flows from our hands
Bringing the music alive

Lift your hands
Receive from on high
The spirit of life
Speak His name
Shout for the power and feel the fire

We won't play the fool for silver and gold
No sell out and no compromise

Born to a purpose
A calling, a life
Burning inside with fire

Shed now your bonds
The corpse that would hold
Take wings as an eagle and fly

In the end the wicked ones with their treasure will burn

Light the flame
Don't let the chance pass
It may never return

Seize the day
Leave the fools behind
Who would stand in your way

Take my hand
We will surely arise from the ashes to victory

Seize the day
Set your eyes on tomorrow
Say farewell to yesterday

Find your way
To the brave goes the glory
The warrior's destiny
 
 
At the Gates
Fearless, fists held high
No one is questioning why
In the hearts of the one I see before me

Faithfully sworn as the legions who have gone before
Beyond the bonds of blood
We are the chosen ones
And we shall stand united till the end

When the call rings out
Will you rise with a shout
And take your place on the line

Here's for your courage
And here's for your soul
Here's to remember if you should grow old
So live... for the moment flees away

Hold onto the hunger I see in your eyes
Till we are all one and our hearts satisfied

Does your heart still stir at the beat of the drum?
Does the song still echo in your mind?
Are you one with the blood of the sovereign one?
Is the fight and fire still alive?

May we meet once again in the kingdom in the sky

The master awaits his soldiers at the gates
And has prepared a place for you and I

Till we meet once again in the kingdom in the sky

The master awaits his soldiers at the gates
And has prepared a feast for you and I
