Track Name: Visions Of Hypocrisy
Visions of Hypocrisy…
SPIRITS FORM, HEAR MY VOICE
WILL YOU COMFORT THE EARTH
NOW MAKE YOUR CHOICE

I MOVE MYSELF IN POWER
NO ONE CAN STOP ME NOW
CONTINUALLY I’LL BREAK NEW GROUND
BUT NEVER BREAK MY VOW
AS EVIL FLOWS ALL THROUGH MY BLOOD
AND I’LL GIVE IT ALL TO YOU
SHOW ME ALL YOUR POWER
AND ALL THAT YOU CAN DO

ALL THESE THINGS THAT SEEM TO ME
ARE TAKE—OFFS OF REALITY
DEATH TO ME IS THE THING
THAT IS TRULY REAL

EVIL IS MY ONLY FRIEND
GOOD CAN NEVER REIGN AGAIN
FEEBLE THOUGHTS OF HAPPINESS
THEY WILL NEVER BE

LOVE CAN’T TAKE WHAT’S DEAR TO ME
VISIONS OF HYPOCRISY
COMPASSION OF A HUMAN RACE
THAT WILL SURELY DIE

TAKE THE TIME TO LOOK AROUND
YOUR WORLD INSIDE IS FALLING DOWN
DENY LOVE AND HAPPINESS
AND THEN YOU’LL FOLLOW ME

I’LL SERVE THE ONLY ONE
THAT SERVES ME LIKE I SERVE MYSELF
UPON THESE WORDS I SPEAK TO YOU
PUT THE LORD UPON A SHELF
THE MIGHTY LIGHT PREVAILS ON YOU
CAN IT OVER TURN THE DARK
THE FEAR OF LOSING EVERYTHING
WILL MAKE YOU CHANGE YOUR WAY

I HAVE COME
I’VE SEEN THE SIGN
NOW COME WITH ME
YOU’LL DIE TONIGHT

GUARD OF FIRE UNSHEATHE YOUR SWORD
AND LET ME SEE THE EVIL WAY
TAKE ME TO MY FINAL HOME
AND PREPARE ME FOR JUDGEMENT DAY
ALL THE GOOD IS TAUNTING ME
SO SAVE ME BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE
FORGIVENESS, LOVE, AND HAPPINESS
ARE ALL THE THINGS I’VE GROWN TO HATE

BRIGHTNESS MUST END
IT CANNOT WIN
ENGULFED IN SIN
SHOW ME THE WAY
FORGET YOUR LIFE
BEWARE THE NIGHT
HEED ALL THESE WORDS
GIVE ME YOUR SOUL

YOU’VE HEARD MY WAY
YOU’VE SEEN THE SIGN
YOU TOOK THE VOW
NOW YOU ARE MINE
Track Name: Encased In Glass
Encased in Glass…
LOOK INTO MY DREAMS AND TELL ME
WHAT DO YOU FIND
BROKEN GLASS, FADED DREAMS
OF A SHATTERED LIFE
YOU LEFT ME OH, SO LONG AGO
NOW WHAT BECOMES OF ME
A STATUE NOW REMINDS ME
OF ALL THAT’S DEAR TO ME

LOOK INTO THE PAINTED GLASS
I GAZE UPON MY KNEES
I TRY TO FIND THE ONLY WAY
TO END MY MISERY
THERE’S NO ONE HERE TO HELP ME
NOW WHAT BECOMES OF ME
BEHIND THE STONE, I HEAR A VOICE
AND NOW WHO CAN IT BE

DON’T BE –AFRAID I’M HERE TO HELP YOU
DON’T FEAR—I BRING YOU NO HARM
TAKE MY – HAND AND WE’LL WALK NOW
HURRY NOW – FOR I FEAR THE STORM
THUNDER –BEGINS TO BREAK THE SILENCE
LIGHTNING – BLINDING THE DARK
THE TEARS – ROLL OUT OF HER EYES NOW
I FEAR – FOR WHAT IS IN STORE

WAKING FROM A SLEEP I KNOW THAT THIS
IS NOT A DREAM
BEHIND THE DOOR I HEAR A VOICE AND SHE
BEGINS TO SCREAM

I SEE – THE PAIN THAT SHE FEELS
AND THEN I SEE HER CRY
I DON’T – KNOW ALL THE REASONS
WHY SHE…..WHY SHE HAD TO DIE
THE GLASS – IT BEGINS TO CRACK NOW
AND THEN – SHE FADES AWAY
HER FINAL – WORDS WERE TO ME IS
“I WILL RETURN HERE ONE DAY”

WAKING ONCE AGAIN I WONDER
IS THIS HAPPENING
THE BROKEN GLASS AROUND MY BED
AND DIRT AROUND MY FEET
LOOKING THROUGH THE WINDOW
SHE’S WAVING BACK AT ME
A VISION OF THE LITTLE ONE
THAT MEANT SO MUCH TO ME….
GOODBYE
Track Name: Benediction Of Faith
Benediction of Faith…
FLOWERS NOW DECAY
THE END DRAWS EVER NEAR
SORROW EASES HAPPINESS
BUT I WILL SHED NO TEAR
FEAR WILL RAPE COMPASSION
DOUBT WILL SWALLOW TRUTH
I LIFT MY EYES TO HEAVEN
AND LAUGH AT HOLY FOOLS

TAKE ME TO THE PLACE I’VE SEEN
SO MANY YEARS AGO
ON BENDING KNEES I PRAY TO THEE
AT THE BASE OF HATREDS THRONE
I SCREAM MY NEEDS AND BEG FOR WANTS
UNTO A BURNING SKY
SATAN GRANT ME JUST ONE WISH
AND LET THAT BE TO DIE

ECLIPSE THE LIGHT OF DAY
GATHER STRENGTH FROM THE NIGHT
TAKE YOUR FEAR EMOTIONS REVERSED
AND END THIS THING CALLED LIGHT

NOW I WILL POSE A QUESTION
ANSWER ME IF YOU CAN
WHO WILL YOU CHOSE TO GUIDE YOU
INTO THE HOLY LAND
CHOOSE WISE FOOLISH MORTAL
YOUR LIFE IT WILL DEPEND
THERE’S NO ONE HERE TO HELP YOU
YOUR LIFE IS AT ITS END

SIT WITH ME AND GAZE UPON
THE FINAL SETTING SUN
THE HUMAN RACE AS WE ALL KNOW IT
IS FINALLY DONE
REALITY OF THINGS TO COME ARE SEEN
RIGHT THROUGH MY EYES
HELPLESS BASTARD CHRISTIAN ONE
IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO DIE

GAZE UPON THE BLACKENED NIGHT
AND SEE THE DARK MOON RISE
THE DAYS BEGUN IT’S TIME FOR US
TO BRING THE LEGIONS UP
YOU’VE MADE YOUR CHOICE
YOU RAISED THE TEST
YOU’VE DETERMINED NOW YOUR FATE
YOU’VE SEEN THE WAY
YOU KNOW THE LIES
OF THE BENEDICTION OF FAITH
Track Name: The Apocalypse
Apocalypse…
SCREAMING UP FROM HELL
THE VOICES CALL TO YOU
AND WHAT LURKS DEEP INSIDE
THAT’S TEARING AT YOUR WOMB
PRISTINE BITCH OF GOD
THIS COULD NEVER HAPPEN TO YOU
BUT GUESS AGAIN THE DEMONS SEED
HAS BEEN PLANTED IN YOUR WOMB

JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE
THIS SEED BEGINS TO SPAWN
AND HELL SHALL OPEN UP AGAIN
AND BRING FORTH HEAVENS FALL

HOODED MEN THAT STALK THE NIGHT
BRING YOU IN FROM THE RAIN
WHO ARE THEY, WHAT DO THEY WANT
AND WHICH GOD DO THEY SERVE

LOCKED INSIDE THE PRISON CELL
YOU BEGIN TO FEEL THE PAIN
THE FEELINGS OF YOUR OWN BIRTH
ARE HAPPENING AGAIN
A SHADOW FORMS UPON THE WALL
AND SCREAMING FILLS THE ROOM
THE DARK IS FALLING ALL AROUND
NOW WHAT WILL YOU DO

EVIL NOW SURROUNDS YOU
NOW WHAT HAVE YOU DONE
YOU’RE THE ONE THAT’S GIVEN BIRTH
TO HIS UNHOLY SON

MY GOD WHAT HAVE YOU DONE
AND NOW WHAT WILL YOU DO
THE REVELATIONS AT HAND
AND IT’S ALL BECAUSE OF YOU

NOW RISE ---BRING FORTH THE END
NOW RISE ---SO WE MAY REIGN AGAIN
MY FATE –IS RESTING IN YOUR HANDS
MY LIFE --- WILL NOW BEGIN AGAIN

ANGELS DESCEND FROM THE SKY
DEMONS ASCENDING FROM THEIR CELL
RISE UP AND LEAD US IN TO FIGHT
VICTORIOUS WE’LL RETURN TO HELL

FAITH
YOUR RELIGION
WHAT HAS IT DONE
YOU’LL FALL TO ME
OH HOLY ONE

CURSE
ALL THE LOVE
THAT YOU BESTOW
HATE CANNOT LOSE
TO ONE SO WEAK

HATE IT PREVAILS
LOVE IT NOW FAILS
FEAR NOW IS MINE
DEATH I GIVE TO YOU

THE SEALS BREAK
I SEE THE LIGHT
HELL GLOWS –IN ALL IT’S GLORY

SEE THE SIGN
AND SEE THE WAY
IT’S TIME – IT’S JUDGEMENT DAY

BREAK THE SEALS AND HEAR THE SOUND
THE WORD OF GOD IS ALL AROUND
NOW YOU KNOW THE END OF TIME IS NEAR

YOU SEE YOUR LIFE BEFORE YOUR EYES
YOU REALIZE IT’S TIME TO DIE
HAVE YOU BEEN A HOLY LITTLE CHILD

THE TRUMPETS SOUND ANGELS SURROUND
YOU’LL BE GONE BEFORE TOO LONG
BUT WILL THEY BE THE ONES TO TAKE YOU HOME

CONTINUALLY THEY PASS YOU BY
AND YOU DON’T KNOW THE REASON WHY
YOUR EVIL LIFE RUNS BY YOUR EYES AGAIN

REMEMBERING THE EVIL RAIN
YOU WITNESS YOUR OWN BIRTH AGAIN
AS HOODED MEN BRING YOU IN FROM THE RAIN

YES IT’S TRUE THE MARKS ON YOU
AND NOW MY PRINCE WHAT WILL YOU DO
THE SEVENTH SIGN DEPENDS ON ONLY YOU

GIVE THE WORD AND I’LL BE GONE
I CAN DEFY THE HOLY LAW
THE FAITH OF HAPPINESS WILL SURELY FALL

NOW I SEE THE MARKS ON ME
AND NOW MY FATHER COMMAND ME
THE SEVENTH SIGN REST ON MY EVIL HEAD

FROM THE NORTH I SEE
HATRED BECKONS ME
FROM THE SOUTH I HEAR
PEOPLE SCREAM IN FEAR

NO I CANNOT FAIL
CREATOR HEAR ME NOW
FOR YOU MADE ME TOO
I AM JUST LIKE YOU

NOW YOU WANT A WAR
NOW FOREVER MORE
SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND
ALL OF THIS IS MINE

THUNDER I HEAR
THE SKY WILL FALL
THE EARTH IS MINE
FAMINE’S MY CALL
I PLAGUE THE EARTH
WITH MY OWN BIRTH
I KNOW IT’S ME
COMING FROM THE RAIN

FOOLS CANNOT SEE
ALL THAT I CAN
FOOLS CANNOT SEE
JUST WHO I AM
SEE AS I SEE
DO AS I DO
FEAR WHAT I AM
BECAUSE I AM YOU
Track Name: Maniac
Maniac…
THE VOICES IN YOUR HEAD ARE TELLING YOU BEWARE
YOU HEAR THEM LOUD AND CLEAR BUT YOU DON’T EVEN CARE
YOU SEARCH DOWN IN YOUR SOUL , YOU’RE SURE IT’S NOT YOUR OWN
YOU KNOW NOT WHERE YOU’RE AT OR WHERE YOU WANT TO GO

THINK TO YOURSELF AT ALL THE TIMES AND THE END IS GROWING CLOSER
THE NEXT YOU HEAR THE KILLER, THE KILLER SLOWLY ENTERS YOUR HEAD
SPREADING ALL THROUGH YOUR BODY, A PAINFUL POSSESSION AND DEATH
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU DO, YOUR MINDS NOT IN CONTROL

YOU SAY IT’S ALL IN YOUR HEAD BUT IT WON’T LET YOU GO
YOU’LL BE BACK IN HELL AND THAT IS WHERE YOU’LL DWELL
CONFUSED BY ANGER YOU ROAM THE STREETS TO KILL
HIDING IN THE SHADOWS BLINDED BY YOUR STEEL

AWAIT YOUR HARMLESS VICTIMS, THE ONES YOU RAPE AND KILL
THE BITCH APROACHES CLOSER GET READY TO ATTACK
CAN’T HIDE IT ANYMORE YOU FEEL WHERE YOU BELONG
HAS SATANIC MAGIC LEFT YOU ALL ALONE

FEEL THIS CANCER GROWING DEEP INSIDE YOUR MIND
YOU’RE IN CONTROL BUT HAS IT LEFT YOU BLIND
NOW YOU ARE THE KILLER, STRICKENED WITH DEATH
WILL YOU STRIKE AGAIN, IT’S ALL INSIDE YOUR MIND

LOST CONTROL FOREVER TRAPPED BEHIND YOUR EYES
IN YOUR MIND YOU PLAY THE VICTIM TRAPPED INSIDE YOUR LIES
BACK OUT ON THE STREETS AND WHY YOU DO NOT KNOW
YOUR MIND IS PLAGUED WITH DEATH, POSSESSION JUST WON’T LET YOU GO
THE POWERS THEY COME FROM HELL, ALL YOU NEED IS DEATH
LOST CONTROL IS SATAN INSIDE OF ME
RAPEING AND KILLING AND BLOOD IS ALL I NEED
DISMEMBERED BODIES LAY IN A POOL OF BLOOD IN FRONT OF ME
KILLING SPREE, I FEEL THEE, YOU’LL SEE………
I’M FREE
Track Name: Works Of Fire
Works of Fire *
DON’T BELIEVE A WORD THEY SAY
SEEING ALL THE SIGNS AND THE WAYS OF OUR TODAY
DO YOU LIVE A LIE OR ARE YOU TRUE
OPEN UP YOUR EYES REARRANGE TO CHANGE
ALONE IN MY DARK ROOM AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS
SEEKING MY SECRETS AND KNOWING ITS WHERE
LET ME HEAR THE VOICES AND FILL THE SPACE THAT RESIDES
ALL AROUND MY SOUL
AND SILENCE IS A QUESTION – CAREFUL HOW YOU ANSWER
TRULY ALL YOU HAVE PUT FORTH

BY THE MOON – WORKS OF FIRE
OF THE SKY – WORKS OF FIRE
LIGHTING OUR – WORKS OF FIRE

SOMEONE IS CALLING ME HELP ME SEE JUST WHAT I NEED
AND SEE IT SET ME FREE
IN A WORLD – BETWEEN TWO WORLDS
GENERATIONS PAY FOR MISTAKES THAT SOME HAVE MADE

BY THE MOON – WORKS OF FIRE
OF THE SKY – WORKS OF FIRE
LIGHTING OUR – WORKS OF FIRE

DARKEST HOUR OF NIGHT, WHO STANDS BEFORE ME SMILING
AS I HAVE MY WAY
I LOOK IN VISIONS – I CAN SEE MY ENEMY – STALKING
EYES THAT STARE ME DOWN, AS IF THEIR STARING FROM THE GROUND
AND WHAT ABOUT YOUR WORLD – YOUR LAWS
DO THEY EVER REALLY SATISFY THE NEED
TO WATCH MAN BLEED

IN MY DARKEST HOUR
I LEAVE THIS PLACE, AND I MAKE NO MISTAKES
I’VE TALKED ABOUT THE OLD – I’VE SPOKEN TO THE DEAD
NEVERMORE WILL I BE BLESSED
THE CHANGES THOUGHT WITHIN MY HEAD
AND THE END OF TIME IT COMES
I’LL BE THE ONE ALONE WAITING FOR – THE CHANGE TO REARRANGE

GATHER AT THE RIVER FILLED WITH BLOOD YOU’LL SEE
THAT FEAR IS NOW YOUR ONLY HOPE
SINS REDEMPTION FROM YOUR FATE THAT YOU’RE

YOU – YOU’RE IN MY HANDS I ASK OF YOU
IF YOU’RE NOT ME – WHO ARE YOU

FALSE PROPHET LOOK AT ME
I KNOW JUST WHO YOU ARE

THE STARS FALL FROM THE SKY
I’VE SEEN THE SEAS TURN INTO SAND
THE SALT TURNED INTO BLOOD
UNHOLY ONE YOU’RE HERE AT LAST
I HOPE YOU’LL LET ME DIE

HEAR THE SOUND OF PEOPLE ALL AROUND
SEARCHING FOR LIES – THE TRUTH IN DISGUISE
PEOPLE SEE – LISTEN TO ME
FIX YOUR PAST – NO FALSE PROPHECIES

REMEMBERING THAT FATAL NIGHT AND ALL THE THINGS
I SAID TO YOU – KNOW IT’S TRUE
TRAVEL BACK WITH ME AND YOU WILL SEE THAT FATE
IT HAS A PLACE IN YOUR HEART

PAIN AND GREED AND BLASPHEMY

Track Name: See'R

SHOULD YOU SPEAK THE WORDS THAT SHOULDN’T BE SPOKEN
OR SIT AND WAIT AND LET YOUR FUTURE UNFOLD

I HAVE LISTENED TO YOUR LIES AND LAUGHED
I HAVE SEEN THROUGH YOUR DISGUISE, I’M LAUGHING
ALL THESE THINGS I DO I DO FOR ME

Track Name: Eyes Of Christ
Eyes of Christ…
ALL THE WORDS ARE INNOCENT
ALL THOSE THOUGHTS ARE FALSE
PEACE DECLARE A HOLY WAR
AND ALL HOPE IS LOST
IN THE SKY I SEE A LIGHT
I SEE FEAR UPON A CROSS
BELOW HIM SEE THE SCREAMING FOOLS
ABOVE HIS FATHERS GONE

FATHER WHY HAST THOU FORSAKEN ME THIS TIME
I NEED TO KNOW THE ANSWER
BEFORE I FINALLY DIE
NAZARENE THERE IS NO ONE
WHY MUST YOU BE SO BLIND
THIS IS THE WAY, THAT I SEE THINGS
THROUGH THE EYES OF JESUS CHRIST

TRUTH IS COMPASSION, THIS VISION CANNOT BE
AND MY EYES HAVE SEEN THE LIES
AND I KNOW WHAT IT IS
CREATION IS A FALSEHOOD, IT CAN NEVER BE
DIE IN HELL MY PROPHECY AND YOU’LL LIVE ETERNALLY

NAZARENE YOU’LL FEEL THE TRIUMPH OF HELL
AND FEAR MY LASTING BREATH UNTIL YOU DIE
LOVE DESTROYS ALL LIFE, SO LET ME BE
YOU WERE PUT ON EARTH TO PARISH

THE EYES OF CHRIST CAN NOT SEE
THE PAIN THAT IS IN STORE
FEEL ALL THAT HE FELT SO MANY YEARS AGO
LOOK INTO THE EYES OF MIGHTY JESUS CHRIST

CONJURE UP THE PAIN, YOU FELT SO LONG AGO
THE WINGS OF LOVE ARE FRAYED – NO FLIGHT
NO PEACE – NO TRUTH
NO ONE TO SAY WHO’S WRONG OR RIGHT
THE FEARS – THE EMOTIONS
ALL THE PAIN THAT I CONTROL
THE TEARS OF GOD, HIS PAIN WILL SOON UNFOLD
WANDER AIMLESSLY, TAKE MY GUIDING HAND
WALK WITH ME YOU’LL FIND
I AM BUT A FRIEND
LOOK INTO THE NIGHT – SEE MY FATHERS EYES
BEWARE THE LIGHT OF DAY
THE HOLY EYES OF JESUS CHRIST
