Track Name: Lies
Looking backwards on this year
Trying so hard to see clear
The things I've seen, decisions that I've made
How drastically things have changed
And after all this time

You're still
My lifeline
You're still
The light that shines
And no matter how far I stray
Your love is not far away

And all the pain that was my fault
I wish that I could take it back
My mind is a locked up vault
Where my thoughts attack
The deceiver's lies
Bring tears to my eyes
Help me shut him out
God help me

Help me shut him out

I've got to get these lies out of my head

Your time is up
Get out now

I've seen your tactics before
Your tongue is venom; crawl on the floor
You try to bring me to my death
You cursed the one who gave you breath

Kill the devil
Kill the king of lies
Kill the devil
Kill the master of deceit
Track Name: Ignorance
Put yourself in their shoes.
Life or death, what would you do?
Would you have had the time to think it through?
See things from their point of view.
Of course there are some who abuse.
But not all of them do.
Do not condemn the good because of the few.
With ignorance on both sides we all lose.

It kills us all.
Humanity's flaw.

It's obvious.
You're oblivious.
To the things you say.
But regretfully, I know that you'll never change.
Track Name: Blind Defeat
Riots, rubble, destroyed earth
The world is entering rebirth
Annihilation of mankind
We'll be defeated because we're blind


Nothing will stop the carnage
Track Name: My King
Consumed by anger, hate, grief, and despair.
I'm apathetic; it's so hard to care.
Waking up with this hole in my heart.
Wondering when I will depart this life.

I've fallen so low.
Nowhere to go.
My mind will explode.
I try but have nothing to show.

Not good enough.
Not strong enough.
Can't do this by myself.
I'm nothing, God, I need your help.

I now realize I'm trying to fix myself; a task that I could never do.
I bow my head in humility, and finally I turn to you.
I fix my eyes on the cross.
O how I've gained from your loss.
My heart is heavy with gratitude.
My hope forever lies in you.
Your praises I will sing.
Jesus Christ, my savior, my king.
Your praises I will sing.
Jesus Christ, my savior, my king.

My king.
My king.
My savior, my king.
Jesus Christ, my savior, my king.
