Track Name: Wolves
Look around and see their faces
Following leaders who fell from grace
Blindly trusting; Force-fed lies
Wrapped in comfort, the Truth denied

Everywhere I look all I see are wolves!

Betray their lies - Watch them flee
Silver bullets never interest me
On the hunt to feed their gree
Let's throw them to the Lions!

Your best life now is of your making
Just say the word and it's all yours
Send the money and the fame will follow
Take the biat; Lose your soul

Through the darkness
Through the trials
Wolves encircle
We will rise!

Track Name: Calling
Feels like I'm falling apart - Like You're so far away
I hear You calling - Hear You calling my name
Right beside me - Where You've always remained
I hear You calling - Hear You calling my name

Hiding in shadows with the monster in the room
Fears and loneliness are starting to take hold
My thoughts are echoes from the voices in my past

Feels like I'm falling apart - Like You're so far away
I hear You calling - Hear You calling my name
Right beside me - Where You've always remained
I hear You calling - Hear You calling my name

You are here, I feel the Spirit all around
Take this darkness out and break the monster down
I surrender - I give it all to You

Feels like I'm falling apart - Like You're so far away
I hear You calling - Hear You calling my name
Right beside me - Where You've always remained
I hear You calling - Hear You calling my name

I hear You calling my name - No longer falling apart
I hear You calling my name - No longer so far away
I hear You calling my name - No longer falling apart
I hear You calling my name - No longer lost and afraid

Track Name: Name In Lights
Everybody's watching...

Hey look who's got her own virtual show
Take on the world, baby watch you go
Will you drown in fortune and fame
Or leave us better than before you came?

Everybody wants to be someone

You want to be a start tonight
You want to see your name in lights
You think you've got a chance, alright
Fame is a drug, watch you ignite
Everybody's watching
Everybody's talking
You want to be a star, alright
You want to see your name in lights

15 minutes, better make them count
To tell us all what you're thinking about
Give us drama; Give us something to see
Give us Truth, c'mon make us believe!

So bring it

Track Name: Empires to Ash
Piece by piece we're torn apart
Time and time again
History repeats itself completely to the end
Decisions made by selfish needs
As fools we play the part
Bracing for decay
The cycle starts again

One day this empire will fall - I'll be there for you
Sifting through the ash of what's left - I'll be there with you

Betrayed by those who are supposed to lead
Following like sheep
Trusting knowledge as their god
While Truth is for the weak

One day this empire will fall - I'll be there for you
Sifting through the ash of what's left - I'll be there with you

Track Name: Identity
Everything – I have held on to
Buries me – Pulling me further down
Media – Celebrates the victim
Who am I – I am not forsaken

Deconstructing all my misery
It’s held me hostage - I don’t want to be this anymore.
In You I claim my identity
It’s in Your eyes: I see who I can be

Vision strong – I’m standing at the edge of glory
Shaking off – the echoes of my regrets
Surrender – I give you all that I have in me
Standing up - Don’t count me out, I’m not done yet

Deconstructing all my misery
It’s held me hostage - I don’t want to be this anymore.
In You I claim my identity
It’s in Your eyes: I see who I can be

Track Name: Nothing
I've never been able to understand You
But it's the turning of tables that leaves me only You
I catch myself believing that things are just fine
And just when I take it for granted, You find a way to shake my pride

In my darkest days You carried me in Your arms
And every time I've need You, You've always been strong

Without You I'm nothing
Without You I have nothing to be
Without You there's nothing
Without You there's nothing to believe

On my highest mountain
You're in my lowest valley
Everywhere I go, You're with me
You always go ahead of me

In my darkest days You carried me in Your arms
And every time I've need You, You've always been strong

Without You I'm nothing
Without You I have nothing to be
Without You there's nothing
Without You there's nothing to believe

Track Name: Question Everything
When will we turn and run away
When will our blindness be erased
When will we wake up from this nightmare?

They keep us happy while they keep us fed
They put the hateful voice inside our head
They spin the Truth while they're telling us lies
We're brainwashed don't we realize

Are we sure what we learn is Truth now,
Or is it propaganda in disguise meant to keep us all in line?

When will we turn and run away
When will our blindness be erased
When will we wake up from this nightmare?

Don't question and do as your told
Try not to shake the cage or break the mold
Keep quiet and stay in line
They've got control when they control our minds

Are we sure what we learn is Truth now,
Or is it propaganda in disguise meant to keep us all in line?

When will we turn and run away
When will our blindness be erased
When will we wake up from this nightmare?
We'll never make it out alive
Can't run with nowhere left to hide
One day we all will die trapped in this nightmare
Track Name: Sift
I know there must be some potential
Or else you wouldn't even come for me
I know I could be used for great things
And you would like to destroy me

[Satan has asked to sift you]

Power and lust are selfish pleasures
A mental image that is calling me
I know seduction is your weapon
Sometimes I fall but you can't have me

See me rise! I awaken!
I realize who has saved me!

Stripping away all of my comforts
You bring the fear and then you threaten me
I recognize intimidation
I don't fear you or the lies you bring

See me rise! I awaken!
I realize who has saved me!

[Your seduction, intimidation, and name calling try to keep me from remembering who I really am. You try to dominate me. Well I know who I am: I am the adopted son of the King! And you have no power here over me or those I love! In the Name of Jesus, go back from which you came!]

I hear the voice in the back of my head
It says I have failed at everything I've done
You like me best when I wish I was dead
Try to cut me with your two-edged tongue

See me rise! I awaken!
I realize who has saved me!

Track Name: Aftermath
This weight is pressing on me
I break at last
Nothing left to fight for
Nothing to grasp
I know this is my fault now
This ego-crash
Still feels like I'm the victim
In the aftermath

And even though I feel I'm done for
You come and help me to my feet
This path I tread I know You've suffered
Now only You can bring relief

My best efforts are wasted
To keep control of a life bent on destruction
To damn my soul
So take these broken pieces -
What's left of me
Remove these hollow echoes
of disbelief

And even though I feel I'm done for
You come and help me to my feet
This path I tread I know You've suffered
Now only You can bring relief

Track Name: Make It Yours
You are my God
You are my everything
You are my God
I give You everything

I can feel You
Reaching out now
Take my life and
Make it Yours

You broke the chains that held me captive
My death was conquered on that day
These hands are bloodied and my eyes can barely see
Revealing weakness, finding my true strength
Life forsaken while the fight within me grows
Taking shelter in the shadow of your love

You are my God
You are my everything
You are my God
I give You everything

I can feel You
Reaching out now
Take my life and
Make it Yours
