1. SONS OF VIPERS, HOW WILL YOU ESCAPE THE JUDGEMENT OF HELL

(no lyrics available)




2. WHILE THE SPARROW SLEEPS

Outside these city walls I sing
while the sparrow sleeps.
These hands couldn't raise any higher.
This heart couldn't find a deeper hole.
With your blood on my hands,
I speak more about you than with you.
The work of my hands is not yet my prayer.
If a song is just a song, will my voice be heard.
You who are so close
if you would ask, then ask
how high could one man's praises raise?
My lips are longing for the kiss of your praises.
Outside these city walls
I sing while the sparrow sleeps.
These hands couldn't raise any higher.
This heart couldn't find a deeper hole




3. THE SLAYING OF THE SERPENTINE DRAGON

4 THE BETRAYERS

We are betrayers of perfection
Love spoken from these lips means nothing
All eyes on me
Looking left from right
Pulling poison from petals
Crimson roses corrode
Murder meadow
Death fills your harvest
In fields of blood
Your betrayals stretch for miles
Oh how my hands do shake
Stretched out to receive
The coins sing, as they hit the ground
Oh, how the silver shines in our eyes
We are betrayers of perfection




5. PERSERVERANCE

Oh God,
You who are so wise,
where is the joy in my trials?
Weak, i'm tossed about.
You who are so wise,
give me your strength.
Perserverance.

I stand stronger

You do not tempt me.
It is my death that tempts me.
Death disguised.

My sin leads to death.

Mirror, mirror
tell me your lies

Look after look my face is the same.

Oh God from the heavenly lights above,
pull me from these shadows.
Oh God wake me from this dream.
Save me from me from me.

Oh watchman, watchman,
what's left of the night?




6. RESURRECTION OF THE BEAST

This night brings with it glory,
these hearts a victory song,
these eyes the flames of passion.

Watching now, the skies are splitting,
drying now the ocean's parch.
Cracking now, these lands are barren.

Trying are these times and seasons,
the rising son shall bring the brave.
Raising fists and shout in glory,
the innocent shall soon be saved.

Tears were shed as hearts were shattered,
walked upon as broken glass.
Left to die, were those who gathered,
children first and women last.

Tears were shed.

Black flags raised,
as they were slayen.
Black flags rasied,
blood red will burn these embers.

Scribes to your scrolls,
marching drums alert the towers,
to tell the tail as kingdoms fall,
as we sing our victory song.

Though in the end, these walls may crumble.
Though in the end, I too may fall.
I live to hear those trumpets sounding,
victory in their final call




7. A HYMN OF PRAISE

I will extol you my God
O King i will bless your name
With the reason of everyday
I will praise your name forever

One generation speaks your name
of the glorious splendor
highly to be praised

As men pour forth like a fountain
the praises of your grace
highly to be praised

I'll sing it loud, I'll sing it loud
abounding in mercy
and loving-kindness

I'll sing it loud, I'll sing it loud
your saints praise your tender mercies
highly to be praised.

O Lord, My King.
My eyes wait for you
Your open hand provides
gracious and merciful

You who are so close to me
hear my cry
hear my prayer

My lips speak your praise
I'll sing your name
Forever and ever




8. DEATH HAS BEEN SWALLOWED UP IN VICTORY

They came from the hills
By the hundreds of thousands they swarmed
They marched in the shroud of the eve
Their flags raised high
Leaving nothing but tears in their wake
Mauling the weak, no mercy shown
Not a life was spared.
Blood to earth, blade to bone
Declaring a world of ruin upon me
Overthrow his majesty
Echoed through the trees
With the sound of war
Still i killed them all
My God I watched them die
It became so hard to scream
through their silence
I fought back against this evil wave
i watched as white flags raised
With his strength i march this crusade
With their last bleeding breath they paid
Victims made, Victims laid
Victory, Cry Victory




9. EVERYTHING AND NOTHING

Oh bishop of souls,
Break me out. Break me away. Make me aware.
This is the day and age.

I call out.
This will be my battle cry.
I call out.

For your kingdom, for your glory
for your eyes to fall upon me.
For your eyes like stars, to fall on my face,
a love that keeps my soul still yearning.
For your eyes like stars, to fall on my face,
a love that keeps my heart still burning.

I've been stuck at this crossroads for way too long.
Between everything and nothing, i stood
I've been stuck at this crossroads for way too long.
Without you i couldn't take one step

Break me out. Break me away. Make me aware.
This my day and age.

I can't take one step without you.
I can't take one step alone




10. TURN IT DOWN
