Lyrics

1. END OF DAYS

Faith, family, friendship, forever




2. UNBREAKABLE

Forever true !

New life, resurrected, one chance to start again
My heart and soul convicted, freed from a life of pain
This world will not break me, it’s lies won’t hold me down
I’ll stand strong by your side,
Unified we’ll stand our ground...

Through blood we are brothers,
Through blood we’ve been set free
This friendship is forever, you are my family

Unbreakable !

New life, resurrected, one chance to start again
My heart and soul convicted, freed from a life of pain
This world will not break me, it’s lies won’t hold me down
I’ll stand strong by your side,
Unified we’ll stand our ground

United we stand, divided we fall
His blood was spilled for us, this bond... Unbreakable...

Faith, family, friendship, forever
Faith, family, friendship, forever true
Forever true




3. BURY ME IN JIMÉNEZ

Bury me in Jiménez
Bury me

Take me home at the end of the day
Give me a humble burial in an unmarked grave
Take me back to where the water is pure and the air is clear
Water is pure and the air is clear

You carry me with promises
To a place where beauty breaks your heart
To where beauty breaks your heart, beauty breaks your heart

To where I can lay at your feet forever
To where I can bask in your majesty for eternity
In Jesus Name
Amen




4. THE DISGUSTING MAW

From the moment that you were born
You’ve been shown aesthetic perfection
And told that you’re nothing if not that
Force-fed vanity by the media and its lies, and its lies

So you hide your heart and you hide your face
Buried beneath six feet of mascara
Building your life on one single layer of foundation

And all the while just beyond your sight :
The face of love
Compassion stares from behind the mirror
He weeps, for you are ashamed of the beauty
He sees deeper, even deeper
The only beauty that matters

For everything of this world will pass away,
Is subject to decay

Look further... Even further... Even further...

And you too will see what His eyes rest upon
It’s you and that beauty is indescribable
Let it breathe




5. PUKELIPS

An ever present question haunting every single thought
That passes through my head, inner monologue bombarded
With a slew of degradation and abuse
Seemingly mocking my every attempt to grab
At any form of stability... Yeah, stability

The voice of unreason screaming in my ear
Throwing reality out the window
And removing any sense of balance
And removing any sense of balance

And all this through a crack in my shell

The vastness of the enemy’s army
Is both fear and awe-inspiring
(But a mere whisper has been more than enough to crush me)
Words, get out of my head, just get it out of my head
Get out of my head

Oh, oh Jesus please, still this vomit lathered tongue




6. WHERE IT RAINS

If I could take you away
I’d take you to a place
Where I can sing you to sleep
Somewhere I don’t have to scream
To a place where I can open my chest
Without being afraid
And there the future wouldn’t writhe
And there the future wouldn’t writhe

Where He reigns
Where it rains
Where He reigns

Take me to a place where tomorrow
Wouldn’t cripple me with fear

There tomorrow would not cripple me with fear

There, we could sit and talk the hours past
And pain would wither in the radiance
Of His blessing, this blessing...

Please bless this !
Father preserve us !

Maybe even our feet would never again
Touch the ground and it would rain every single day
No more sunshine here and we find comfort and rest
Only and always in eternal Son shine. Always.




7. THE EYE OF THE STORM PART II

(Instrumental)




8. OAXACA

Through storms and wars take me into a new place,
A world so beautiful
a city of treasure buried beneath a sky of injustice
I am here, but I am filled with fear
Am I ready or am I standing in naivety ?

Send me out !

Through storms and wars take me into a new place,
A world so beautiful
a city of treasure buried beneath a sky of curses
In the air the smell of death,
The grip of fear was all surrounding
The oppression all-consuming, overbearing, overwhelming
I am here, but I am filled with fear
Am I ready or am I standing in naivety ?

But the scriptures tell us that the Lord has not given us
A spirit of fear, but one of power and of love
And of a sound mind, that we can go into the world
And that Christ will be our strength and our protection,
And that the sick will be healed and the dead will be raised

Send me out ! Let it be !
I am your hands, God use me
Send me out ! Let it be !
I am your hands, God use me

A nation on its knees will see the power of God released
A nation on its face will see salvation in this place




9. ALL, BUT THE ARCHER

All I ever wanted was a father to love and edify me
All I ever wanted was a lasting pure embrace
But your attempt was self-serving and sick
What father would ever do this to his own child ?

Let me fall victim to perversion :
Justice died the moment you stepped in
Trust betrayed and innocence taken :
Silence bought your justification

You put a price on... purity !
Scared it into secrecy
But dormant bodies burst

But the scratches on the surface hinted at something Terrible beneath, waiting to bleed out
A secret death : a truth untold
But once it’s spilled the battle is over
Internal bleeding ebbs long after wounds have healed
No part of me remains untainted by your hands

The guilt is on your head : the blood is on your hands
The guilt is on your head...

This war is won




10. THE LISTENER

I would have you know that if it were denounce
Or die you would be staring into dead eyes
I would like to know,
Do you carry the weight of truth and conviction
Or am I speaking to a room pulsating
With the motions of fermenting flesh ?

Would you really go to any length ?
Would you fight ‘til the death ?

Well, either way, I hope you realize
I would happily “waste” my breath on you
‘Til the day I die to help you see the Truth
‘Til the day I die... Until the day I die...

I’m not afraid of change.
My name is revolution




11. BOUND BY BLOOD

This is a blood-bound brotherhood,
Nothing can take this away
No hate can come between us, no distance can separate
Through the years
I’m looking back without an ounce of regret
These times we shared together I know we’ll never forget

No regrets. Never look back
In His name. Bound by blood.

"From the East Coast of New Zealand to South Australia
And worldwide, flying this banner high,
Proclaiming a message of hope to a dying world."
"You think we’re gonna sit back
And watch this world burn in hell ?
No way... It’s time to step up or step out’ the way !"

Break it down... Drop it... Bound by blood...




12. THE DETERMINED DRUNK

Flesh rising, a bloodied battle field
Mass temptation, a ceaseless bludgeoning
Constant confrontation, a flood of decadence
Tearing at my weaknesses
Clawing, gnashing at my blistered heels
Who can save me now ?
Who can save me from myself ?
Can you save me now ?

Thus far I’ve only further
Tightened the grip of sin’s hands around my throat
No strength, no strength of mine
Only God’s good mercy, only His perfect love

(For I can do all things through
Christ Jesus who gives me strength.
For I can do all things through
Christ Jesus who gives me strength.)

Guilty hands are covered with the stink of sin
But perfect precious blood takes the bitter shame away
Mercy poured out freshly, a flood of righteousness
Covering my brokenness
Dark deeds are swept away like crumbling ashes
I accept my death
I embrace my cross, the thorn in my side
I embrace my weakness, the log in my eye

Thus far I’ve only further
Tightened the grip of sin’s hands

This is me, the face of dependency
Lord give me strength, for I am weak
Christ be my strength so I can overcome
I will overcome
