Darkness Falls

Open in Spotify

(Verse 1)

Burnt it out
Cry and shout
Squandered all the options
Turned about

Feel the weight
Separate
Demons taunt and mock
Closet close and lock
Suffocate

Then the help has all withdrawn
Though the battle rages on
They see evil’s breaking in
Confidence is fading when…

(Chorus)

Darkness falls on me
Brings me to my knees
Back is turned you flee
Until darkness, falls on to you

(Verse 2)

Broke and torn
Cast out scorn
Grasping aimless helpless
Left to mourn

Step this way
Say you’ll pray
When things headed south
Speak both sides your mouth
Please just stay

Then the help has all withdrawn
Though the battle rages on
They see evil’s breaking in
Confidence is fading when…

(Chorus)

Darkness falls on me
Brings me to my knees
Back is turned you flee
Until darkness, falls on to you

(Bridge)

Come out from the shadows
Help me lift this burden that brings me high to low

You could gain the whole world
You could turn a blind eye and still can lose your soul.

(Chorus)

Darkness falls on me
Brings me to my knees
Fight until we’re free
Until darkness, falls on to you

If Two

Open in Spotify

\(Verse 1)

Follow the leaders and chase our tails
A house that’s divided is built to fail

Sparkle the facets on the gem
Sharp ones they cut and dull ones dim
Look at the coin it has two sides
Sword double-edged leads to my demise

(Pre-Chorus)

Looking both ways cross-eyed
Staring so hard but going blind
Putting your best face on
Two faced your head has always spun

(Chorus)

If 2 are masters who are you serving?
Serving of one choose now this day
Days are numbered are you persuaded, baited, jaded?

(Verse 2)

Travel is slow riding the fence
Hoping for loss of consequence
Spinning our wheels we lost our way
Swerving causes our delay

(Pre-Chorus)

Looking both ways cross-eyed
Staring so hard but going blind
Putting your best face on
Two faced your head has always spun

(Chorus)

If 2 are masters who are you serving?
Serving of one choose now this day
Days are numbered are you persuaded, baited, jaded?

(Bridge)

No man can serve 2 masters
He’ll hate one and love the other
He’ll hold to one and despise the other
So who is your leader?
What is ruling you?
For me, there’s only One that I will bow

(Chorus)

If 2 are masters who are you serving?
Serving of one choose now this day
Days are numbered are you persuaded, baited, jaded?
If 2 are masters who are you serving?
Serving of one choose now this day
Days are numbered are you persuaded, baited, jaded?

Fade

(Verse 1)

It’s over before it even starts
The more I mend it, it falls apart
Clueless the riddle I know by heart
Falling faster

(Pre-Chorus)

Hated
Wasted
Frustrated I know

Stalling
Crawling
Falling faster

(Chorus)

You’re celebrating when I’ve hit the floor (I notice)
You even begin to cheer
I experience my greatest strength (you notice)
When facing my greatest fear

(Verse 2)

Gaining speed while I chase my tail
Been lifting chains now I’m not so frail
It’s overwhelming but won’t prevail
Falling faster

(Pre-chorus)

Hated
Wasted
Frustrated I know

Stalling
Crawling
Falling faster

(Chorus)

You’re celebrating when I’ve hit the floor (I notice)
You even begin to cheer
I experience my greatest strength (you notice)
When facing my greatest fear

(Bridge)

I’m digging down to get to the root
And rip it out before it can grow
It’s absolutely not absolute
It’s taking me from what I know
Finding my mark and I will not miss
Can’t be held back won’t be bound
Getting to the bottom of this
Before I rise above I’m going down

(Chorus)

You’re celebrating when I’ve hit the floor (I notice)
You even begin to cheer
I experience my greatest strength (you notice)
When facing my greatest fear
My greatest strength
When I’m facing my greatest fear

Blindside

Open in Spotify

(Verse 1)

Another day goes by
Another war inside
Turning back from all that I know
To chase a world that’s growing cold
It’s myself to blame, dragging me away

Now I’m all alone in this cell
Though my sin has served me well
It cannot fill the emptiness
It can’t give strength for my weakness
Will my guilt cease? Will I find release?

(Chorus)

But You held me near
Not letting me fall
So I’ll lay it all down again
Erase it all

Surrender sweet
Laying at Your feet
And I won’t look back now
Lord, take me away

(Verse 2)

For all the times I’ve tried
My strength has failed
Walking with this weight that I wield
Forgetting all that You’ve revealed
Lord, I have failed You, And I’ve shamed You

Do You hear my hollow words?
Or are the cries in vain?
I cannot take this loneliness
Maybe death would end my pain?
I will reach for You, and I’ll kneel to You

(Chorus)

But You held me near
Not letting me fall
So I’ll lay it all down again
Erase it all

Surrender sweet
Laying at Your feet
And I won’t look back now
Lord, take me away

(Bridge)

“My child, I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
“For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone…repent and live!”

Now is the time
Today’s the day
Tomorrow’s uncertain you cannot delay

Now is the time
Today’s the day
Tomorrow’s uncertain you cannot delay

Now is the time
Today’s the day
Tomorrow’s uncertain you cannot delay

Now is the time
Today’s the day
Tomorrow’s uncertain you cannot delay

Don’t wait

Prophetic

(Verse 1)

You threw me in the furnace
And I dance in the flame
You fed me to the lion
And now I wear it’s mane

You gave me as a slave
And now I run this place
A giant tried to fight me
I threw a stone is in his face

(Chorus)

There is no
Other way to explain
Miracles
The weary get strength
It’s mystical
And can do the
Impossible

(Verse 2)

Challenge to set a blaze
The wet is now drier
I call on from help from my Source
And now it rains fire

Shackle me up in a prison
A song has set me free
I’ll conquer every conquest
Who can be against me?

(Chorus)

There is no
Other way to explain
Miracles
The weary get strength
It’s mystical
And can do the
Impossible

(Bridge)

Things are hardest multiplying
Suffocating air poisons my soul
Call me down from the deep
And I’ll follow You
Where You lead I will go

(Chorus)

There is no
Other way to explain
Miracles
The weary get strength
It’s mystical
And can do the
Impossible

My Will

Open in Spotify

(Verse 1)

We forfeit the answer
And think that we’re better off alone
Our ego’s a cancer
Distort the goal to fit our own

(Chorus)

In all of our waiting for a call
When we’d rather do nothing at all
Despite the creating from the clay
We twist and bend from the Hands as we pull away

(Verse 2)

Emotional treason
We can’t tell ourselves we’re shameless
In search for the reason
Continue to wonder aimless

(Chorus)

In all of our waiting for a call
When we’d rather do nothing at all
Despite the creating from the clay
We twist and bend from the Hands as we pull away

(Bridge/Chorus)

I won’t pull away
Form this lump of clay

In all of our waiting for a call
When we’d rather do nothing at all
Despite the creating from the clay
We twist and bend from the Hands as we get pull away

This vessel is cracked and emptied out
Misused from years of pride and doubt
It’s time to be broken start again
Stop fighting against the Potter’s hands

I won’t pull away
Form this lump of clay

Fallen Lion Living Hound

Open in Spotify

(Verse 1)

There is hope for those who live
Righteous wicked conclusive
Rushed to the exact same end
Minutes hours days all spend
You resided undecided
Focus now is short sided
Time to surrender your heart
Time to realize who you are

(Chorus)

And we fall in line
Depending on the day
No hiding, even in a shallow grave
I resided undecided
Then change was underway
We fall in line to see our judgment day

(Verse 2)

Die to live or live to die
Follow truth or live a lie
Gaining way or start to sink
Forgotten within a blink
They resided undecided
Until truth was provided
Tear it down or build it up
Stay in slumber or wake up

(Chorus)

And we fall in line
Depending on the day
No hiding, even in a shallow grave
I resided undecided
Then change was underway
We fall in line to see our judgment day

(Bridge)

Fallen lion living hound
Below above ground
Fallen lion living hound
Below above ground
Knowing this comes to a close
Go where living water flows
The earthquakes make and break the mountain range
Shake things up change

We fall in line
Depending on the day
We will see our judgment day

(Chorus)

And we fall in line
Depending on the day
There’s no hiding, even in a shallow grave
I resided undecided
Then change went underway
We fall in line to see our judgment day

Haunting Me

Open in Spotify

(Verse 1)

Sleeping, exhausted from sorrow
Weakened by the thought of tomorrow
Seeking, resources spent on self
Lonely despite being one of twelve

Well it’s in me
Guilt and shame from abandon
It’s haunting, help me because I am…

(Chorus)

Feeling like something’s wrong inside
Fears once laid to rest now take to flight
Feeling like something’s gone inside
Blinded by the darkness from the light

(Verse 2)

Hidden, from the acknowledgment
Deny devotion as fraudulent
Demons, they’re calling out my name
They see weakness and they know my games

Well it’s in me
Guilt and shame from abandon
It’s haunting help me because I am…

(Chorus)

Feeling like something’s wrong inside
Fears once laid to rest now take to flight
Feeling like something’s gone inside
Blinded by the darkness from the light

(Bridge)

Losing my life for the sake of saving it
Revoke myself forcing this flesh to submit
Losing my life for the sake of saving it
Revoke myself force this flesh to submit
To submit

(Chorus)

Feeling like something’s wrong inside
Fears once laid to rest now take to flight
Feeling like something’s gone inside
Blinded by the darkness from the light
From the light…from the light

(Verse 1)

There’s give and there’s take
It’s real or it’s fake
I’m starting to drown in my doubt
They see it, it shows
You feed it, it grows
I’m needing to find my way out

Words meant to say
Time ticked away
I’m starting to drown in my doubt
Trying to stand
Foundation of sand
I’m needing to find my way out

(Chorus)

Am I broke beyond repair?
(Patch it up the pieces won’t stick)
Is the load too much to bear?
(Gratify I need the fix quick)
Will it ever come to pass?
(Holding on I trip and I fall)
Will I survive, will I last?
(The time is now, surrender all)

(Verse 2)

Part of the truth
Completely confused
I’m starting to drown in my doubt
The pit in my gut
Too big to throw up
I’m needing to find my way out

The patience to wait
Action sedate
I’m starting to drown in my doubt
Cultivate waste
Honor disgrace
I’m needing to find my way out

(Chorus)

Am I broke beyond repair?
(Patch it up the pieces won’t stick)
Is the load too much to bear?
(Gratify I need the fix quick)
Will it ever come to pass?
(Holding on I trip and I fall)
Will I survive, will I last?
(The time is now, surrender all)

I Am

Open in Spotify

(Verse 1)

You say I won’t be forsaken
And I’ve tried to remain unshaken
Burdens I’m being overtaken
Give me strength keep me from breakin’

I searched in the wind and in the flame
Shuttering earth and it’s all the same
Thinking this test should end quicker
Then You say in a whisper

(Chorus)

I am the beginning and the end
Creator of all here to hold your hand
The Voice that’s calling out your name
Be still ’cause I am the I Am.

(Verse 2)

Victory comes in the depths of night
Now that surrender ended the fight
Emptiness of a shell still remains
But I resist pacifying pain

Desperately trying to be seen
Filthy hands are in need to be clean
Coming close as I draw near to You
Now the message is coming through

(Chorus)

I am the beginning and the end
Creator of all here to hold your hand
The Voice that’s calling out your name
Be still ’cause I am the I Am.

(Bridge)

And so realize You’re in the midst
And advise me on how to exist

(Chorus)

I am the beginning and the end
Creator of all here to hold your hand
The Voice that’s calling out your name
Be still ’cause I am the I Am.

I am the beginning and the end
Creator of all here to hold your hand
The Voice that’s calling out your name
Be still ’cause I am the I Am.
