Track Name: Intro (In Blackest Night)
I left my pride at the front door; falling knees first head bowed at the altar
Giving all I am as a sign of repentance I offer to You as my act of penance

I left my pride AT THE FRONT DOOR; falling knees first head bowed AT THE ALTAR
Giving all I am as a sign of repentance I offer to You as my ACT OF PENANCE
Track Name: Blood In, Blood Out
WE ARE moving our feet with our hoods on
Sacred is the ground on which we dance upon (to the beat of our own drum)
This covenant was made with foundations being broken and bloodstained hearts becoming whole

When the weight of the world comes crashing down on your shoulders
And your bones begin to break from all of the pressure; the pressure is rising RISING
Just remember the blood that was spilled for you and I
The blood that shook the foundations of the Earth

Believe me and the promise that you won’t be left behind

Remember me and what I said, that we will stand and fight to the end
Remember me and what I said, that we will stand and FIGHT TO THE end
For what doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger
For what doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger

As iron sharpens iron, we are here to strengthen you
We built you up (brick) brick by brick and we never intended just to let you fall down

Bloodshot eyes, and a weary heart; you cannot do this on your own…

But 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: Punisher
You know, it’s hard to see with you spit in my face
I only see your back as you WALK AWAY from everything we had, from everything we built
But you burned it to the ground

And I just want to know why?

You became the one thing that you claimed you hated (Hated)
Debauchery running wild, playing your mind games, and torturing these lost souls
This is not a game

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 sinful pleasure and selfish 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?
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: Age of Apocalypse (Feat. Matt Honeycutt from 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 and you fall to your knees and you realize...you realize...we won

WE WON

No matter what we are victorious
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 you might change your ways

This all begins and ends with you…

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

PREPARE FOR THE END
I told you that this ends tonight
Track Name: Iron Clad
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 that when my enemy rises up like a flood I will stand firm on what You made me to be

Born of fire I AM IRON CLAD; 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 iron clad; I do not fear death and I do not fear the grave

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

As I raise a banner to the sky proclaiming victory over my enemies
So every vile creature will see I am bought by Blood; 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 flows through my veins I know that death is only the beginning
