I’m running the race that’s set before me And I’ve been a disgrace in the war that calls me But if I didn’t bleed, back in the mud I’d be A labor of love in this battle I’m sent Where the dark would hang me if I lived in regret So I carry on even if I fall Brothers together, even when we crawl. By nature’s desire, I’d plunk it to the wind My jar of clay is treasure when I’ve nothing to give Let my weakness be what makes me strong Let this thorn keep me, hold my pride down low Without it I’d reap what my flesh would sew So brother carry on even if we fall Even when we bleed, from the mud we crawl.

Fingerprints 02:16
Seen in the eyes of those Whom they have led astray Heard through the mouths of those Who mock and turn away May Adonai... May Adonai rebuke you I smell you in the stench of death And rotting moral decay Evidence you leave wherever you walk, It betrays you... I know, I see they live among us I see, I know their fingerprints I see you! I see you! I see you! I see you! May Adonai... May Adonai rebuke you! The truth He shows me Every time you try to sell the same old lies! Ain’t buying it, no, just get outta my face Ain’t buying it, no, just get outta my face Ain’t buying it, no, just get outta my face I won’t give you a place in my heart... No place.

Arizona 04:54
Rattlesnakes and flames Across the desert plains The eagle flies majestic in the sky The Spirit will make you love The red rocks bathed in blood And the land where so many warriors have died Up above in Arizona skies From the fires of Hell Like the Phoenix, your soul will rise Arizona take me home Some say the heat's too much In the Valley of the Sun But it's the place that we're proud to call home The sun sets every night Watching canvases go by Each painted by the Great Spirit's hands Up above in Arizona skies From the fires of Hell Like the Phoenix, your soul will rise Arizona take me home Rattlesnakes and flames Across the desert plains The eagle flies majestic in the sky The Spirit will make you love The red rocks bathed in blood And the land where so many warriors have died Up above in Arizona skies From the fires of Hell! Like the Phoenix, your soul will rise Arizona take me home Up above in Arizona skies From the fires of Hell Like the Phoenix, your soul will rise Arizona take me home Take me home...

Caterpillar 04:24
The caterpillar crawled Into his house of stone Ah-hah... Ah-hah... The caterpillar crawled...yeah He made a chrysalis He prayed and did his best Ah-hah... Ah-hah... He made a chrysalis...yeah He disappeared inside In green and gold to hide Ah-hah... Ah-hah... Asleep for weeks inside...yeah Reappeared with mighty wings Unfolding them, he sings: Ah-hah...! Ah-hah...! Above the crawling things...he flies He flies... He flies... He flies... Lyrics by Dan Lively ©2016 King Riff Music, ASCAP

Flower 06:05
Father, take this seed For I am waiting among the weeds Plant me in the fertile ground Where Your richness and mercies abound Where my life was undone, Something new had begun Break me - my shell Cause my spirit inside to swell Guide me through the toil Move me up through the soil Will I fade away? Or die in the heat of the day? I want to push on through An in the morning bring glory to You Drench me with living rain That I may never thirst again Clothe me in your grace Safe and warm in Your Son's embrace For He who began this good work in me Is able and faithful to make it complete I'll turn to His light and His goodness repeat Over and over again... See me, I'm alive! In Your garden I grow and thrive Gentle, calm and still I am rooted within Your will And as my petals unfold Speaking mysteries long foretold The world is not enough room For the faith of a flower in bloom Lyrics by Randy Michaud ©2003 Fiercely Independent Music, ASCAP

Hello mother, How have you been? It’s been such a long, long time When will I see you again? I barely remember The sound, of your voice I lay awake at night Wishing I had a choice Father above hear me cryin’ Can you guide me, towards the light? Resented pleasure, the rose that’s wilted Coming; undone Show me how It ends, just fine Show me how It’ll be, alright Give me a reason, Give me a sign Send me an angel, Bring me to life Eight years has gone so fast.. The memories we made.. Never seemed to last.. And I’m left here by myself.. Loneliness enshadows me Creating my hell Father above hear me cryin’ Can you guide me, towards the light? Resented pleasure, the rose that’s wilted Coming; undone Show me how It ends, just fine Show me how It’ll be, alright Give me a reason, Give me a sign Send me an angel, Bring me to life I remember your name I remember your face I’m sorry that- I’ve brought you shame How can I live In my disgrace? Lyrics by Christopher Michaud ©2016 REDD

I'm in love with an angel But that angel doesn't love me If I could make that angel See how true my love can be I'll tell her I love her I'll tell her I care And I'll ask her to share Her love with me For eternity Oh angel, please be mine Angel, please be mine... I'm in love with an angel But that angel doesn't love me If I could make that angel See how true my love can be I'll tell her I love her I'll tell her I care And I'll ask her to share Her love with me For eternity Oh angel, please be mine Angel, please be mine... Lyrics by Tommy York

Scorch 03:06
Common sense would tell us To share and share alike But now the iron’s hot as hell I say it’s time to strike I sought to ask one question: Have once again I failed? What must I do to qualify, My efforts to avail? She told me scorch Clear the damage with a torch Raze it to the ground and start it all again Drive out all impurities Purging flame will set you free Rise from the scree and face down what’s within Go forth and scorch For don’t you know that if you strike An iron that’s still hot Then it won’t even matter If you qualify or not I posed another question: How can I sustain the burn? How can I keep on going With blind corners every turn? She told me scorch Clear the damage with a torch Raze it to the ground and start it all again Drive out all impurities Purging flame will set you free Rise from the scree and face down what’s within Go forth and scorch I had a final question (The darkest of my fears): Can it truly break the curse That I’ve borne so many years? No more the sword of Damocles Will hang above your head A lion’s heart, a steady hand Will be your lot instead She told me scorch Clear the damage with a torch Raze it to the ground and start it all again Drive out all impurities Purging flame will set you free Rise from the scree and face down what’s within Go forth and scorch Lyrics by Beth Patterson ©2013 Beth Patterson/Speak Jolly Music (BMI)

Kraken 06:07
Trapped inside time as a slave to the brine Your human form no longer seen As power you wield immortality's shield Forever, never ending you've been Under Olympus rule, you would not play the fool So they damned you to obscurity Twisted by fate, increasing your hate Condemned to a life in the sea So now you dwell in a world you call Hell Sanity rests on a knife Freedom is shut out Oh God! How you want out! Your lust is a vengeance on life Ages ago, you held a young man's beliefs In search of a God-given fate Destiny undaunted, your mortal soul haunted Delivered anew to Hell's gates Your memory drowns as time runs you down You scream for a life you now miss Your cries and your pleas aren't heard overseas They don't even know you exist Offered up for your pain, a maiden in chains A vision of virginal bliss You need little force and feel no remorse In giving her death's solemn kiss So now you dwell in a world you call Hell Sanity rests on a knife Freedom is shut out Oh God! How you want out! Your lust is a vengeance on life Ages ago, you held a young man's beliefs In search of a God-given fate Destiny undaunted, your mortal soul haunted Delivered anew to Hell's gates Leviathan...destroyer of the deep Forsaken one...'til death is done, you cannot sleep! Prophecy fulfilled in horrifying tone Chilled to the bone Stand alone Turned to stone... Lyrics by Kevin Mack & Randy Michaud ©1989 D.T. Seizure/Name Your Poison

Never 04:00
What’s it worth, what is the cost? Sell myself, integrity lost Keeping up with the trends Changing styles, it never ends I was this but now I am that Never me, deny my past Selling out to the crowds Circle goes around and around to sellout SELLOUT! In the Land of Never! Selling out to the crowds Circle goes around and around to sellout SELLOUT! In the Land of Never! Looking back on what was Then apologize to you my friend Look at me, I’m the focus Integrity is not for us Sell more units to please the suits Fill their pockets, forget the Truth No matter what be on the charts What’s it worth and what is the cost to sellout? SELLOUT! In the Land of Never! What’s it worth and what is the cost to sellout? SELLOUT! In the Land of Never! For a price go to the top, SELLOUT! In the Land of Never, Never! What’s it worth, what is the cost? Sell myself, integrity lost Keeping up with the trends Changing styles, it never ends I was this but now I am that Never me, deny my past Selling out to the crowds Circle goes around and around to sellout SELLOUT! In the Land of Never! Selling out to the crowds Circle goes around and around to sellout SELLOUT! In the Land of Never! For a price go to the top, SELLOUT! In the Land of Never, NEVER!

From the distant waters Her siren's song came Now their hell, then your heaven As you whispered her name This moment changes everything Nothing will ever be the same again And in your faces Joy has drained from your eyes The dream, the journey is over Can you rebuild the empty shell of your lives? This fleeting moment in time When you come to your senses There is nothing left to look upon Finality the bitter pill And the clocks keep ticking on Another midlife crisis Trust slipping away Does it seem worth the price now In this cold light of day? This moment changes everything Nothing will ever be the same again This night rearranges everything No words to defend And so it goes And so it comes to an end Fleeting moment in time Lyrics by Ian Arkley ©2015 MSW

Driving in the dark on a full moon night Western Pennsylvania in the pre twilight See a dark haired girl and I catch a fright In the cold of the winter she’s a lonely sight Reimer Road is lifeless like no mans land A Woman in distress is waving her hands This is something that I can’t comprehend 20 miles from nowhere with my drunk friend Said she been walking for a very long time And asked politely may I please have a ride With out reason and with out rhyme Paranormal Melanie climbed inside Paranormal Melanie a mystery is calling me Paranormal Melanie she came to me so eerily Paranormal Melanie she needs a ride so desperately Paranormal Melanie or damn is thee for passing she As legend claims it is right where she died For a little dead girl she seemed so alive Like an eerie melody that moans and wines A distant deja vu that transcends time One Half of mile was the whole damn ride By no Wheresville at the cold roadside Apparition from a sad tragic end Raped and freezing with out a friend No one helped her when she was alive So her spirit stayed on after she died With out reason and with out rhyme Paranormal Melanie climbed inside Paranormal Melanie a mystery is calling me Paranormal Melanie she came to me so eerily Paranormal Melanie she needs a ride so desperately Paranormal Melanie or damn is thee for passing she (I see dead people) Lyrics by H. Slaughter & D. Johnson ©2014 Henry the Horse

The Maker 05:05
Foundations of time from the first Earth age You breathed life into each and every soul Before the child conceived, the plan was secure A life no law of man can claim or hold We expose our pride in what we perceive as wise And take the new life into our own hands Without regard for the blessed new heartbeat The machine we created cuts the silver strand We won't be distracted by the same life we hold to With our goals and desires we strive to achieve In our self-proclaimed right for power over life We now find more value in the trees In the end our human will won't be done Though thru time we deceive ourselves to believe And the blood that we spilled, the dreams that we killed In those fractured wombs we'll one day grieve Lyrics by Victor Griffin ©2010 Place of Skulls/Brethren Music (ASCAP)

Rainbow 06:37
Dove ascend to ride the wind And sail into unknown Across the sea to olive tree Oh my, how you have grown Bless the day return to say What we'd like to know Is where you been the grass is green And shines a new rainbow Yeah.. The tide, the waves, the moon A dove sings his tune The wind, the world he's on Finding life alone Dove... Dove... Dove... Dove... Lyrics by Ric Bennett ©2004 Starchild/Ric Bennett

Get Gone 04:31
Well I’ve seen you before baby, on the side of the road From the mountain you want a ride, where we goin’ Get in and let’s ride mama, just as far as we can We’ve got nothing but sunny times, so let’s get gone You better hang on tight honey, we’re getting hot for speed Leavin’ all the dust behind, that’s all we need Rockin’ space and time, until the sky turns black We’ll leave it all behind mama, with the seats back Now I know we’re so far behind we didn’t see it Get up and get gone because they day’s too long, it’s time to split baby Now I know we’re so far behind we didn’t see it Get up and get gone because they day’s too long, it’s time to split baby Well I’ve seen you before honey, on the side of the road What mountain you want a ride, where we goin’ Get in and let’s go baby, just as far as we can We’ve got nothing but sunny times, so let’s get gone Now I know we’re so far behind we didn’t see it Get up in and get gone because they day’s too long, it’s time to split baby Let’s get gone Lyrics by Pete Campbell ©2016 BuzzardMusicMN (ASCAP)

Darkest Hour 06:00
I shaped my time the instant that I fled And woman, I could never love you any less But these many miles that I've roamed Are weighing so heavy on my withered soul I dream of the end when sleep comforts me No sorrow or longing, nor burdens will I keep I've ventured so long with these misguided hands Burning my own trail to the Promised Land If there's freedom out there And I believe no price to pay In my darkest hour Truth's light will shine the way Lyrics by Victor Griffin ©2006 Place of Skulls/Brethren Music (ASCAP)

I need to redeem myself Need to release my tortured mind You know this wasn't my choice The words are mine in another man's voice Darkness came down upon me Sickness tore right through me Pressure, the depth of that misery Felt just like suffocation You can look anywhere for answers I looked for too many answers in you This fool thought it lasted forever Trying so hard not to witness the truth Lost to supplication Forever beyond the pale Tribulation, sorrow and pain Burning deep within my veins All we have is ourselves now and we are alone All we hear is the silence, the empty unknown We kept turning the key but this wasn't our home Looking up at the skies when the follows had flown This is not me This is not my voice You look at me with tears in your eyes Believe me now This was not my choice Wait long enough and everything dies Love lost and found And lost and found Moving forward then turned around Feeling alive then feeling alone in this garden of thorns and neglect Gaining our strength and losing ground I need to redeem myself Need to release my mind from this I will live on in hope of something better than this Until I breathe my dying breath Lyrics by Ian Arkley ©2015 MSW

[unstrumental] ~~~ She has eaten voraciously again and again and yet still she is empty...her eyes dart wildly back and forth, desperately searching for some new fodder to consume in another vain attempt at satisfaction...in her terror, she pauses, looks down and sees something she had not yet considered until this very moment...the source being herself...without hesitation, she doubles over and begins to feed upon that which she once blindly accepted as her greatest strength and most valuable possession...as she tears into her own leathered flesh, she feels the familiar frenzy take over once more...one last sanguine ecstasy as she gorges herself on this final repast...undoing all as she hovers as close as she ever will to rest and relief...but, as always, this heightened state is short-lived as her diminishing vessel is no longer able to carry the curse of her existence...her withered host is reduced to waste while her wretched essence hangs in the putrid air for but a moment before dissipating into nothingness to be remembered nevermore... ~~~ The succubus is a female sexual spirit...a demon or supernatural entity which appears and takes the form of a human woman in order to seduce and feed upon the emotions, energy and resources of men (the male counterpart is the incubus). Some religious traditions hold that repeated contact and sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health and even death.
