My Declaration (Single)

My Declaration

I’m tired of wasting time and soul away

I’ll put my faith in who created me

They’re all watching and they need to see

A light unto the world, the man I need to be

 

I wanna lead courageously, leave a legacy

I wanna surrender myself

Faith awakening, live for eternity

I’ll stand with no ovation

This is my declaration

This is my declaration

 

I’m not afraid to face all I have done

And I’m not perfect, but a child of the Son

Gonna face my demons, for I know that they will come

They’ll hear me screaming, “The end of you has come!”

 

I wanna lead courageously, leave a legacy

I wanna surrender myself

Faith awakening, live for eternity

I’ll stand with no ovation

This is my declaration

This is my declaration

 

When the enemy comes I will not rest

When the enemy comes I’ll be ready with the light in the darkness

When the enemy comes I will not rest

When the enemy comes I’ll be ready with the light in the darkness

When the enemy comes I will not rest

When the enemy comes I’ll be ready with the light in the darkness

 

I wanna lead courageously, leave a legacy

I wanna surrender myself

Faith awakening, live for eternity

I’ll stand with no ovation

I wanna lead courageously, leave a legacy

I wanna surrender myself

Faith awakening, live for eternity

I’ll stand with no ovation

This is my declaration

This is my declaration

Sabotage EP

To War

Soon I will meet my greatest enemy, it knows me well

Here it comes to steal all of my hopes and dreams and cast a spell

We move to war

 

Push us back in the dark until they say we can be free again

Now the powers that be have formed a line

We’re marching out to meet them (We’re off to war)

Can love still save the souls of men?

 

Here comes the storm too late to turn away, it knows me well

This dark traitor knows much more than just my name, our kingdom fell

We move to war

 

Push us back in the dark until they say we can be free again

Now the powers that be have formed a line

We’re marching out to meet them (We’re off to war)

Can love still save the souls of men?

 

Lightning breaks the shroud, death can’t hold me

Hear me scream out loud, you won’t control me

We march to war…

 

Push us back in the dark until they say we can be free again

Now the powers that be have formed a line

We’re marching out to meet them (We’re off to war)

Can love still save the souls of men?

 

 

Scarecrow

Fear of the world inside you and all the things that could be

Your mind is the devil’s playground, let him roam so free

Afraid you’ll get too close now and he might make his move

Tell yourself go back now, his eye’s fixed on you

It’s just a mask, hollow as glass

No hold on you, it’s inside you

And what you fear’s only a mirror

Staring at you, creeping up on you

 

You’ve been running from a scarecrow in your mind

Blind to what’s been hunting you

Scarecrow in disguise

It’s distracting you, tear it down

Tear it down…

 

Always seems so frightening, never know what might be

You never know who’s watching, lose your sanity

Loving what can’t save you, and your heart has fooled you

Dancing to the prelude, the demise of you

It’s just a mask, hollow as glass

No hold on you, it’s inside you

And what you fear’s only a mirror

Staring at you, creeping up on you

 

You’ve been running from a scarecrow in your mind

Blind to what’s been hunting you

Scarecrow in disguise

It’s distracting you, tear it down

Tear it down…

 

Serpents whisper solace as the venom paralyzes

The scarecrow froze my vision as the slayer remained hidden

Wake and arise, take back your life and wipe the sleep from your eyes

 

You’ve been running from a scarecrow in your mind

Blind to what’s been hunting you

Scarecrow in disguise

It’s distracting you, tear it down

Tear it down…

 

 

Alive

I’m down here in this cavern, a dark and lonely place

I’m shouting here on bended knee with the echoes screaming in my face

Can you hear me? Lord, can you hear me? Hello?

It’s so cold in here I can see my fear

Abducted by my enemy anger, a victim of my own war, I don’t love you anymore

In the darkness we all look the same

I’m so alone but hear someone calling my name

 

I was dying till I heard your name

Lying in a pool of my shame

Poisoned through my veins

You broke through my night, blinded me with your light

My lungs just want to scream it

For the first time, I’m alive

 

I’m hiding from this fear that dances, I’ve ruined all my second chances

Oh there’s so much more to me

And a hero will come rescue me, I can hear the bell toll for me

A prisoner enduring the lashes, but I hold the key, as if ashes

Oh I did this on my own

So I’ll forgive and I’ll be reborn

And I’ll live for, I want to live for something more

 

I was dying till I heard your name

Lying in a pool of my shame

Poisoned through my veins

You broke through my night, blinded me with your light

My lungs just want to scream it

For the first time, I’m alive

 

You broke through my night

Scales fell from my eyes

I’m not who I was, no longer calloused

We are the change, we are the light

Love will save us all, don’t give up the fight

 

I was dying till I heard your name

Lying in a pool of my shame

Poisoned through my veins

You broke through my night, blinded me with your light

My lungs just want to scream it

For the first time, I’m alive

 

Sabotage

Strung up on these chains I’ve wasted time and soul away

I won’t obey you, overtake you, and make my escape

But I feel your eyes on me, you won’t take over me

Freeing my weakening eyes, this beautiful mirage

Watch as your walls start to fall, this is a sabotage

What are you living for?

What are you fighting for?

What are you dying for?

 

How long must we dream? And this life is not what it seems…

It only takes one life to change this world

Who will save us?

 

Breaking from delusions and the lies that swallowed you

Piercing flesh and darkness, now you finally see the truth

But I feel your eyes on me, you won’t take over me

Freeing my weakening eyes, this beautiful mirage

Watch as your walls start to fall, this is a sabotage

What are you living for?

What are you fighting for?

What are you dying for?

 

How long must we dream? And this life is not what it seems…

How long must we dream? And this life is not what it seems…

It only takes one life to change this world

Who will save us?

 

I severed your strings, O, you’ll bow you puppet master

No longer will we be bound by the enemy

No longer will I let venom inside of me

I won’t live another day in your mirage

The tide has turned, this is a sabotage

 

 

Beautiful Scars (In Memory Of Braxton Kooser)

I thought we had more time, we were never afraid

We were so blind, before these sorrows came

I would give anything to say one last time how much you meant to me

I’d say I’d do it again lying on these stones

But it doesn’t hurt any less in my bones

 

Scars for you, so beautiful, I’ve set aside a part of my heart

I’ll see you soon again, I’ll dream of you till then

Where shadows can’t find us anymore

 

Paradise seems so close, but I have so far to go

A light to all those, now with tears, they know

Just a silhouette to remember you, and your last words to me

I know you’re truly alive in the souls you awoke

A rose blooming in winter’s cloak

 

Scars for you, so beautiful, I’ve set aside a part of my heart

I’ll see you soon again, I’ll dream of you till then

Where shadows can’t find us anymore

 

O, can you wake me from this dream of frailty, sorrow can be so cruel

Grief can’t enslave me, it’s not gonna break me, my God will sustain me

The same God that blessed me with you

 

Scars for you, so beautiful, we’re stronger now because of you

On streets of gold you’ll run, our tears rest in the Son

Where shadows can’t find us anymore

Within My Reach

Venom

One last time you’ll take me

One last time I’m giving into you

Sick inside you make me

Seep into my veins & I’m drowning

Sinking you pull me down

Still I run this sick cycle for you

 

One more time I can’t breathe without you

You’re my sweet seductive noise

One more time I can’t live without you

You’re my sweet seductive voice

And you’re the venom of my choice

 

One last time you’ll take him

One last time he’s giving into you

Black inside you made him

Laid into the ground now he’s silent

Too late to turn back now

No one soothes our fragile minds like you

 

You can’t have me anymore

You can’t have me cause

I’ve thrown the key away

I’ve found another way

Cause I was too weak to stand on my own

I crawled back to you I was all alone

You’re my intoxicating demise

I’m sick & tired of all your lies

 

One more time I’m going to breathe without you

You’re just ashes amongst the noise

One more time I’m going to live without you

I’ve been given eternal voice

And you’re nothing without my choice

 

 

30 Silver Coins

These 30 silver coins they’re staring back at me

They won’t let me sleep their betrayal runs deep

In the black is where he called your name

Oh what have you done?

 

Your knife runs deep into his back

You heart is the one consumed in the black

You’re my puppet & I will pull the strings

Decay is the song that you’re life sings

 

You looked into my eyes & it was done

Can you see what a monster I’ve become?

How could I have betrayed the ones I loved?

What have I done?

 

With these whispered words I sealed our fate

I’m drowning in my lies

 

You can’t save me learn from me

It’s to blame my hypocrisy

I kissed your face fell from grace

The devil’s gaze whas the puppet’s strings

I have your blood on my hands

Don’t have regret on your hands

This silver burned me

 

 

The Raven

Solemnly pacing through the meadow’s eve

Your eyes appear sullen he shouted carefully

For he was not alone not the only breath to be seen

A raven in audience holding court in the judge’s seat

“My boy whatever do you mean?”

The boy said “You no longer rule in my veins as you’ve fashioned

And I bind you in the Name of the One who bore my lashings

Too long you’ve haunted my dreams so frail

Raven you’re no longer welcome to watch me fail

So I say…”

 

Nevermore will your lies destroy my heart

Nevermore will you tear my life apart

Nevermore will you leave me with these scars

Nevermore

 

She’s a scavenger holding to empty valor

A princess of lies where the shadows invite prowlers

It’s not been like this always

Writhing in constant shame

Tears where the dirt has claimed

Lost in her prayers for rain

Her life was a dance away from pain

Somber cries can’t drown the judgement in this ally’s eyes

An imposter perched high the raven calls into sorrow’s pride

“Too long you’ve haunted my dreams so frail

Raven you’re no longer welcome to watch me fail”

 

Scarlet Hands

I hear your hollow heart your hollow words

Feed this frantic need never slow down

You have believed in lies

Given up on me as they slowly feed on your mind

 

I’ll take your coldest night

The scarlet on your hands forever mine

I’ve loved you all of your life

I promise I will never leave your side

Forever without you I’d rather die

 

I see your anger bleed slowly killing me

Shades of who we used to be

I am the breath of life

The morning light

I can hear you screaming for life

 

Slow down your breathing

Your crown is crumbling

Angels and demons

In darkness lies treason

Glory runs through our veins

Heaven’s a heartbeat away

Shadows cannot hold us

The trump will resound victorious

 

 

Dream Of War

Run away going nowhere but something’s out there

Light of day still surviving but slowly dying

 

Who will come for me?

When the darkness comes to take what’s left of me

Who will fight for me?

Believe me we’re at war, see, there’s the open door

My monster’s been set free

 

Heroes come but they’re not ready & I’m not waiting

Heroes go did what you had to I survived you

Separate, my guilt has made me

And you can’t save me

Hesitate, it’s gaining on me

Someone wake me from this nightmare

 

Who will come for me?

When the darkness comes to take what’s left of me

Who will fight for me?

Believe me we’re war, see, there’s the open door

My monster’s been set free

 

Searching for some feeling

Can you tell me what I’m dreaming

Can’t shake this darkness in me

Can you take this nightmare from me?
