Track Name: Wicked Ones and Thieves
They are the wicked ones and thieves.
Keep your eyes up, keep your head up.
Just don’t make contact with them
They are stealing, they are stealing innocence.
They sit perched on the top of the world,
They will watch for you to fall.
Cast aside, they are building the tombs for the dead
Their faces are so very dangerous.
Built to die, they are taking control of the world
We’ll face them all courageously.
Keep your eyes up, keep your head up.
Just don’t make contact with them
They are stealing more than just your reputation.
Keep your eyes up, keep your head up.
Just don’t make contact with them
They are stealing, they are stealing innocence.
My eyes grow weak with sorrow;
They fail because of all my foes.
They’ve failed to bury us.
They’ve failed to carry us away, to silence our hearts.
The ways of the wicked will be condemned.
They sit perched on the edge of the cliff
We will watch for them to fall.
Track Name: Have Fear...For It is Revealed
Buried under buildings, with my body asleep
They pulled me down below, from my bed above, into a prison cell.
I tried to pull away, but the heat was unbearable
I couldn’t lift my broken body from the floor.
I could sense they were watching me, with their hands pulling at my skin.
I could feel the fear setting in, as I crawled on my knees.
Crawling, pleading, screaming
’Oh God, please help me’
Buried under buildings, with my body asleep
Finally, I see the light.
I’ve gotta get back to my body.
Buried under buildings with my body asleep.
Track Name: We Are the Bold
Condemned to the bottom, they’ve made a mistake
How could one lose so much self control?
The stage was set, but all of the timing was wrong
The hour glass should not be left alone.
You’ve got a little time before I permanently change my mind
About everything I thought you were.
But now that things are callous, you’re choosing sides.
And it seems like you are slipping but the ground isn’t wet.
Call off the attention, become a real bad mess,
Turn away if you crave emptiness.
Call on the arrival, and let it sink into your skin,
Fill the void as the calm is setting in.
And all of my love has been given to others,
But I know that it needs to be shared with you.
Stand and await the collision.
Condemned to the bottom, they’ve made a mistake
How could one lose so much self control?
The stage was set, but all of the timing was wrong
The hour glass should not be left alone.
I think I…I think I might fade away, I need to share myself with you.
Stay close and embrace me, your embrace means that I am bold.
I’ll take the steps to uncover it, to find out what’s inside of my soul.
Destined to remember, do not forget this,
We are the bold, we will rise above the dead.
Left to your devices, you might regret this,
We are the bold, we will rise above the dead.
Stay close and embrace. Your embrace makes me whole.
Track Name: Keeping the Innocent
Uplift, throw fists in the air. Lets stir things up while
they are carelessly filing themselves into futile lines.
Try your best, you might just get to them to follow you,
But its better than giving in.
I can see them getting closer.
Make your move this will all soon be over.
We are the chosen ones, we are called to endure.
Holding fast our word, we will endure.
Pull me down, drag this out.
I will fight with my eyes wide open.
Try your best, you might just get to them to follow you,
But its better than giving in.
Try your best, you might just get to them to follow you,
But its better than giving in.
If they are broken we will teach them,
If they are broken we will hold them.
If they are broken we will keep them,
If they are broken we will keep them.
If they are broken we’ll stand beside them,
If they are broken we will guide them.
The past is a graveyard, the past tense doesn’t matter.
We’ll fight on and we’ll keep them
We’ll fight on, we will endure.
We’ve got a long way left to be secure
The coldest air breathes down our necks.
Try your best, you might just get to them to follow you,
But its better than giving in.
Try your best, you might just get to them to follow you,
But its better than giving in.
Track Name: And We Will Be Delivered
Collapsed in your arms my body has failed me
This vessel is a shell plagued by defeat.
I can’t imagine life alone in darkness
Without the strength to carry on.
I’m holding onto ideas of dissolution,
This desolate sky won’t let light through.
I can’t imagine life alone
Hear me, hear me.
When you call to me I will say
’I’m sorry, I’m sorry, forgive me for the things that I’ve done’
When you call to me I will say
’I’m sorry, forgive me’
Hold on to me ’cause I want to love like I should.
My body is a wreck and I was the driver.
My God, I feel so wrong, like I’ve lost everything
But you would never let me go through this alone.
When I get to the gates I will say
’Pass judgment on me, pass judgment’
When I get to the gates I will say
’Deliver me, deliver me with grace’
