Ready. Aim.

Ready. Aim.

It whispers silently

I locked you out, but still you found the key

An uninvited guest, you left my mind in disarray

But I won’t let you stay

Your time is running out and soon you’ll find out

The gates of hell will not remain

Too long you controlled my mind

Too long been buried inside

And I don’t need your lies

This time I surrender my soul

To the one who’s in control

I’m coming for you Darkness

To take back what you stole

We are not alone, oh the light has shone

From the hills we see as the angels they sing

A beautiful victory

You’ve only brought me shame

Don’t even speak my name

This is the end, the end of your reign

Too long you controlled my mind

Too long been buried inside

And I don’t need your lies

This time I surrender my soul

To the one who’s in control

I’m coming for you Darkness

To take back what you stole

With love on our side, we’re warriors of the day

Arm in arm, the war is coming

We’re running toward the monster. Ready. Aim.

We’re running toward the monster. Ready. Aim.

Too long you controlled my mind

Too long been buried inside

And I don’t need your lies

This time I surrender my soul

To the one who’s in control

I’m coming for you Darkness

To take back what you stole

Too long you controlled my mind

Too long been buried inside

And I don’t need your lies

This time I surrender my soul

To the one who’s in control

I’m coming for you Darkness

To take back what you stole

We’re running toward the monster. Ready. Aim.

We’re running toward the monster. Ready. Aim.


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


Save The World

With axes they may come

Lighting fire with their tongues

But we will show them love

Darkness cannot stop the Son

If we are shadows like the night

How will they ever find the light?

Save the world, save it from the flames

Brace yourself, it’s gonna be insane

Save the world, save it from the flames

Stand your ground, proclaim the Name

In the darkest times, love will lead the way

They’ll look into our eyes, eternity remains

Save the world, save it from the flames

Brace yourself, it’s gonna be insane

Save the world, save it from the flames

Stand your ground, proclaim the Name

All our hearts are burning for the ones that we love

All our hearts are burning for the ones that we love

You’ve heard the story told, it’s gonna save the world

A war for our souls has come for us (in the darkest times)

And we’ll stand at the gates victorious

Save the world, save it from the flames

Brace yourself, it’s gonna be insane

Save the world, save it from the flames

Stand your ground, proclaim the Name


Game Over (feat. Justin Forshaw)

A seeker, a sayer, I am a dragon slayer

If only I could kill this fear inside me

Your freedom, salvation, or face annihilation

But can you break the chains that rule this kingdom?

All these games I’ve been playing

I’m not who you think I am

But I think you knew that all along

And with the truth I must fall

The army assembled, you make the darkness tremble

And here I sit inside the pitch black shaking

I could be an ally, yet fighting for both sides

And one day I will catch the arrows that I’ve thrown

All these games I’ve been playing

I’m not who you think I am

But I think you knew that all along

And with the truth I must fall

Grace, Your unending grace

You’ve given us Your grace

Your unending grace

But I will fall

All these games I’ve been playing

I’m not who you think I am

But I think you knew that all along

And with the truth I must fall


No More Suffering

You try to tell me everything’s alright

(Can anybody, anybody hear me?)

But I don’t know if I can close my eyes tonight

(Can anybody, anybody hear me?)

You try to tell me everything’s alright

(Can anybody, anybody hear me?)

But I don’t know if I can close my eyes tonight

(Can anybody, anybody hear me?)

One day there’ll be no more suffering

And one day there’ll be rest for me

But not today

Even when I feel my hope is gone

(Can anybody, anybody hear me?)

You hold me up in strength to carry on

(Can anybody, anybody hear me?)

One day there’ll be no more suffering

And one day there’ll be rest for me

But not today

One day there’ll be no more suffering

And one day there’ll be rest for me

I won’t walk alone and I won’t be afraid

Cause Love will come down and Love will save me

I won’t walk alone and I won’t be afraid

Cause Love will come down and Love will save me

One day there’ll be no more suffering

And one day there’ll be rest for me

But not today

One day there’ll be no more suffering

And one day there’ll be rest for me

So I will live for today

One day (there’ll be rest for me)

One day (there’ll be rest for me)

One day (there’ll be rest for me)

One day (there’ll be rest for me)

One day


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?
