Track Name: Confronting The Atheistic Sideshow
CONFRONTING THE ATHEISTIC SIDESHOW

And I’ve seen the lies, and I’ve read the lies, and I’ve heard the lies, and I hate the lies
And I’ve seen the created exalt itself above the Creator
And your science is wrong, and your textbooks are wrong, and your speeches are wrong, and your protests are wrong
For there’s a way which seems right to a man but in the end it only leads to death

Atheist-Free Youth
We’ve embrace what’s true

And I’ve watched your mundane song and dance whining that there is no God
But I’ve watched you deify and worship the human potential
Humanism is your idol, and skepticism is your bible
But all the wisdom of this world is but foolishness to God

Atheist-Free Youth
We embrace what’s true

God’s not the one who’s dead
Track Name: I The Contrite
I THE CONTRITE

You say when I have sin God doesn’t hear my prayers
As though they dissipate into thin air
Somewhere between my lips and the heart of God
I look into the Crucified’s eyes and I don’t see that there

Facedown in all the filth I’ve lived
Repentant heart, faith in the Son: He sees and He forgives
So if your statement is true then I have no hope
For no human effort could ever make me His
Track Name: Declaration To A Dead World
DECLARATION TO A DEAD WORLD

I don’t want your poison
I don’t want your filth
I don’t want your reasons
I don’t want your lies

Resist for a better today
Resist for a better tomorrow
Steadfast I choose life
I don’t want what makes you die

I don’t want your drugs
I don’t want your death
I don’t want your excuses
I don’t want your one night stands

Resist for a better today
Resist for a better tomorrow
Steadfast I choose life
I don’t want what makes you die
Track Name: All My Heroes Have Fallen
ALL MY HEROES HAVE FALLEN

I know a man whose heart of gold is not very hard to see
I know a man who’s clothed in wisdom, in strength, and dignity

And every hero that I’ve ever had has fallen except for one
And in this world of silver and of gold I can find nothing greater than to be your son

I know a man who raised his son in ways of righteousness
I know a man whose son desires to make him proud and nothing less

And every hero that I’ve ever had has fallen except for one
And in this world of lofty dreams and goals I can find nothing greater than to be your son

And my father is a man among all men
My dad, my friend

This world is full of foolish men and idols
This world is failing fast but this I know

Every hero that I’ve ever had has fallen except for one
And every hero that I’ve ever had falls short of this one man:
My dad, my friend
Track Name: Vespers
VESPERS

If I serve You out of want for Paradise then lock me out of Paradise
If I serve You out of fear of hell then send me straight to hell

I am not worthy, Lord, to receive Your love and grace
But only say the word and your servant shall be healed

The Lord has promised me, His Word my hope secures
He will my shield be as long as life endures

Expand my heart to perfection
And grant me the satisfaction that is beyond any desire

This is my Faith
On Christ the solid rock I stand
This is my Faith
All other ground is sinking sand
Nothing in my hand I bring
Simply to the cross I cling
This is my Faith, this is my Faith

The mystery of forgiveness overrules the truth of judgment
Do what is worthy of Thee, not what is worthy of me

This is my Faith
On Christ the solid rock I stand
This is my Faith
All other ground is sinking sand
Nothing in my hand I bring
Simply to the cross I cling
This is my Faith, this is my Faith
Track Name: No Victory At Carl's
He was taken to Carl's Jr and fired from the band...YOU'RE FIRED!!!
Track Name: Cancer The Bastard
CANCER THE BASTARD

One point five million died last year by you
In America alone, about nine (million) in the world
Murderer, thief, liar, and a cheat, destroyer of dreams
Families are ripped apart but you don’t care
So here is what we think of you

Cancer you’re a bastard, an imbecilic bastard
One day you will cease to be and what a day that’ll be
Cancer you’re a bastard, a half-witted bastard
You may have killed but in the end your victims win

Melanoma, breast cancer, I hate you
Prostate cancer, colon cancer, I hate you
Testicular and lung cancer, I hate you
Lymphoma, stomach cancer, I hate you
Cancer of the ovaries, I hate you
Cancer of the pancreas, I hate you
Oral cancer, bladder cancer, I hate you
Leukemia, I hate you

Cancer you’re a bastard, an imbecilic bastard
One day you will cease to be and what a day that’ll be
Cancer you’re a bastard, a half-witted bastard
You may have killed but in the end your victims win:
No more death!
Track Name: And Of Heaven In Such A Hell
AND OF HEAVEN IN SUCH A HELL

Open your eyes, my friend, and look around
Yah there’s death tonight, yah there’s death tonight
Open your eyes, my friend, and look around
Yah there’s sorrow tonight, Yah there’s sorrow tonight
Open your eyes, my friend, and look around
Yah there’s loneliness, yah it’s everywhere
Now open your heart, my friend, and open your arms
Let’s go

Speak for the silenced and fight for the weak
Listen for the lost and those that weep
Don’t turn your back cuz it could’ve been you
In a world that’s dying walk the Path of life and truth
And of heaven in such a hell
Track Name: Turn Your Head And Cough
Turn your head and cough!!
Track Name: The Relativism Plague
THE RELATIVISM PLAGUE

So quick to change the Message to fit the times
If that’s your faith then it’s not mine
It’s time to put away the slogans, put down the cliché tactics
And pick up responsibility

Preacher: rebuke thyself
Prophet: rebuke thyself
Teacher: rebuke thyself
If you forgot what matters most

Have we carried our cross for so long that we neglected to carry our own weight?
And at whose feet did you really lay your burdens down?
And did you manage to get their name?

Preacher: rebuke thyself
Prophet: rebuke thyself
Teacher: rebuke thyself
If you forgot what matters most
Track Name: The Few And The Proud
THE FEW AND THE PROUD

First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor true and clean
Admiration of the nation, Semper Fi
We’re the strongest ever seen

Honor guides our every step, Oorah Oorah
Courage grants us no regrets, Oorah Oorah
In many a strife we fought for life and never lost our nerve
Committed to what makes us free
The few and the proud

If the Army and the Navy ever look on Heaven’s scenes
They will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines

Honor guides our every step, Oorah Oorah
Courage grants us no regrets, Oorah Oorah
In many a strife we fought for life and never lost our nerve
Committed to what makes us free
The few and the proud!
Track Name: This One's For The Survivors
THIS ONE’S FOR THE SURVIVORS

This ship has sailed before
Into the tempest it sails again
All beacons blackened out
Our bearings gone
Confusion reigns
And constellations cruelly hidden behind the clouds
Why must this happen once again?
My sweat it turns to blood
Still I will force these words to bookend my plea:
Baruch Atah Adonai (blessed be the Lord)

Let there be signs
Of land ahead, of beacons bright and true
Let there be signs
Of something, of anything that will guide and see us through

If this journey called life has taught us anything at all
It’s that this too will pass

This ship has sailed before
And we’ll survive it once again
