Track Name: Intro (Blood In, Blood Out)
I will stand my ground, my ground for you
I WILL STAND MY GROUND, MY GROUND FOR YOU
I will stand my ground, my ground for you
I WILL STAND MY GROUND, MY GROUND for you

I will stand my ground for you when you have nothing left
I will stand my ground for you even in the face of death
Track Name: Dead Man
I have walked a thousand miles in every direction and found none as blameless as You

Here stands a hopeless man with a shattered heart and a broken hand longing for something more; reaching out to feel something that is real
Because I have tasted and I have seen and I no longer want what the world is offering; despondent and obscene

And I can’t take this anymore…

Something has change, I won’t make it; I’m dying
Will You save me? I relinquish everything

I will not be the man that I used to be
You were there to save me when I was a desperate man
Offered salvation through sacrifice
Blood spilled so that I could be born again

My body burned, but my soul lived
Rose through the ashes NO LONGER CONDEMNED
But I won’t ghost; the whole world will know
For it is like a fire SHUT UP IN MY bones

They will all know…that I’m a dead man walking

Now every man shall know the name of God above
Now every man shall know that this is your chance for new life

I am a dead man walking
Track Name: DOA
You died…

You died at the hands of self-righteousness
You fool, you fell into the enemy’s hands
All a part of his plan to tear you down destroy your life
So easily compromised, what happened to your resolve?
Was it all for show when you were sitting alone letting your guard down, enveloped in darkness?

All that you stood for was impure even when you tried to stand WITH BROKEN KNEES
You will not crawl away from this

You cannot fool me, I see right through you…
I hear the gasp of your final breath with vultures circling above your head
I see the mask falling from your face; the one that made a mockery of our rebirth
Is this everything you thought it would be, slow dancing with the Devil at night?
He had you right where he wanted you, in the palm of his hand

We were…
We were supposed to better than this, not hide behind a façade
We were brothers in arms but yet you made fools of us all
Still I reached my hand out in grace to make amends face to face
But I get the impression that you never believed in anything we said

You made your bed; you made your choice
Now lie in it; sleep with remorse

You didn’t burn the bridge you burned the house down

You cannot fool me, I see right through you…
I hear the gasp of your final breath with vultures circling above your head
I see the mask falling from your face; the one that made a mockery of our rebirth
Is this everything you thought it would be, slow dancing with the Devil at night?
He had you right where he wanted you, in the palm of his hand
Track Name: Age of Apocalypse (Feat. Matt Honeycutt of Kublai Khan)
All the nations tremble to their knees, as they all once stood in reverent fear
Lightening cracks to show the battlefield, show this world WE ARE VICTORIOUS

We have a Power beyond all Power, a strength that surpasses knowledge
The ground shakes and the masses tremble when they see the flag of our King they fall to ruin

WE WILL NEVER DIE
Set apart since the dawn of time, from birth refined through fire
Hands unbound with the purpose to bring Hope to the hopeless; the sick and dying
But we’ve returned to depravity breeding filth hatred and disease
This injustice will no longer stand; you will feel the fury of my Father's right hand
HIS RIGHTEOUS hand

Carnal our weapons are not because we fight with Blood bought hands
We aren't the new breed but we're the old guard and we've returned to save the whole world

We are victorious and that will never change

Everything you've ever known in this one moment crumbles, are your beliefs, your foundations mean nothing to me
Tears well up in your eyes as you fall to your knees and you realize...you realize...

We won

No matter what we are victorious
Track Name: Punisher
You know, it’s hard to see with your spit in my face
I only see your back as you WALK AWAY from everything we had, from everything we built
But then you buried it six feet underground all for a taste of this world…

You lied to me

You became the monster that you claimed you hated
The embodiment of debauchery feeding on the flesh of a soul that you could have saved
Instead you led them to an early grave...and now they burn

Where is the faith you professed?
I guess it died like the bodies lying at your feet
You threw it all away for selfish pleasure and sinful gain
AND NOW THEY BURN so you can have your fun
Well live it up because you’re burning the candles at both ends and your time is up

Are you happy now?

Did you get everything that you wanted out of this life?

Oh I hope so…

Forgive me Lord for I have tried but they vehemently reject Your Truth
So I wash my hands of their blood…
Track Name: Endgame
Humanity has a loaded gun with the barrel pointed to it’s head
READY to pull the trigger and let the bullets fly just to feel something inside
The world falls into chaos as they reject the word of God
FEEDING their sin and self-indulgence with no care for impurity

Wake up…
Wake up to the horrors around you as the world descends to Hell in a basket weaved of flesh and moral deplorability

We will rebuke and abstain from this carnality that’s overtaken society

We are not of this world so we drew a line in the sand
You’re either with us or against us so choose where you stand

They feed with reckless abandon distorting love for lust
DROWNING in a sea of drunkenness; inhaling the ashes of the dead
But we stand firm sanctified; fighting when no one else will fight
WE ARE the light in the darkness; the heavy hand that holds the flame of hope

We have blood on our hands from fighting the GOOD FIGHT

We are not of this world so we drew a line in the sand
You’re either with us or against us so choose where you stand
We are not of this world so we drew a line in the sand
You’re either with us or against us so choose where you stand

The day of reckoning is upon us
Take a stand or dig your grave
The day of reckoning is upon us
Martyr or burn

This is not a game; what were you thinking?
I gave you no indication that this was the case
When real lives are at stake we have an obligation to be what God created us to be
Track Name: Jaw Wired Shut
You are not a man of God; you are a snake disgorging venom of self-glorification
This makes me sick and your reign of terror ends tonight

Abdication must TAKE PLACE for the sake of every lost soul to truly be saved
You do not speak Truth YOU SPEAK selfishness and condemnation
For every person who does not BOW DOWN and worship everything that you say
Holier than thou, you are a fool and A SNAKE and a reason that the lost may never be saved

You lost your humanity when you fell in love with every malicious word that uttered from your tongue
No matter the cost or the damage that you caused
And now you’re all alone; no one left to listen to your lies
And now you’re all alone; no one left because everybody died

Can you hear them? Because they’re burning in Hell

You love hearing the sound of your own voice; it may soothe your soul but it does not soothe mine
When you speak it’s like salting an open wound and then scraping it shards of broken glass
I pray that conviction hits you like a brick in the face so that you’ll change your ways

This all begins and ends with you…

Tongue tied with nothing to say
Your mouth is clenched tight; your muscles aren’t responding
With your jaw wired shut let the congregation see you for what you really are

Prepare for the end
Track Name: Ironclad
The Devil stands before me and he’s calling for my head
Spewing venom, gnashing his teeth; longing to rip out my still beating heart
But what this demon doesn’t know is that I’ve fought this fight before
And I know when my enemy rises up like a flood…

I will stand firm on what You made me to be
Born of fire I AM IRONCLAD; I do not fear death and I do not fear the grave

When all hope is lost I will stand firm and fight, fight for my life

Unrelenting, I will shout to the heavens and bring Your holy fire down to incinerate this evil before me
Flame, all consuming

The Devil strikes back, his blow puncturing one of my lungs
He laughs as a grin starts to cover his face
But I see the fear in his eyes as I taste the blood in my mouth…

And I stand firm on what You made me to be
Born of fire I AM IRONCLAD; I do not fear death and I do not fear the grave

Death has no hold over me (DEATH HAS NO HOLD OVER ME)

And I raise a banner to the sky proclaiming victory over my enemy
So every vile creature will see I am bought by Blood and nothing can touch me

Unrelenting, I will shout to the heavens and bring Your holy fire down to incinerate this evil before me
Flame, all consuming

And with the Blood that runs through my veins I know that death is only the beginning
Track Name: Age of Decadence (Feat. Michael Casillas of Black Aevum)
***This song is a warning; a tale of sin and pleasure taken beyond the point of no return (death) with no care or cause for concern for one’s salvation from earthly desires. There are two roads in this life…the road of deliverance and hope through Jesus Christ by way of repentance of sin…or the road of eternal damnation by rejecting Jesus Christ by indulgence of worldly pleasures.***

Welcome to the new age of decadence where carnal pleasure’s at your finger tips
Now let me introduce myself, I am the baron of this barren wasteland and here I am king

And you can have whatever you want as long as you feed from me
Drink in iniquity; indulge…

Indulge to your heart’s desire and disregard what your soul’s screaming inside
You have no idea of the price you paid because the first taste is always free

Carpe noctem (seize the night); seize the day
Never mind that your soul is mine because…

I am the demon in the bottle
I am the shot in your tied off arm
I am the lust on your TV screen
And I am the key to your darkest dreams

Set your eyes upon the master of lies; Lucifer, darkness personified
I relish the panic in your eyes when you fathom that you’ll never leave this pit alive

THERE’S NO WAY OUT as the gates of Hell seal
DELIVERANCE is just a dream from your past

You had your chance for salvation but you rejected hope to feast with me
And no matter how loud you scream you will rot and die in eternal suffering

Carpe noctem (seize the night); seize the day
Never mind that your soul is mine because…

I am the demon in the bottle
I am the shot in your tied off arm
I am the lust on your TV screen
And I am the key to your darkest dreams
I am the demon in the bottle
I am the shot in your tied off arm
I am the lust on your TV screen
And I am the key to your darkest dreams

You belong to me…
