Every time I see you, your eyes are full of fear
Every time I listen, your voice cries silent tears
Laying in your bed at night, scared to make that choice
Scenes torturing your mind, so scared, but still so blind

You're waiting for consolation
But on this path you'll find no solution

Lost in Vain
A frozen heart will burn a lukewarm soul
Lost in Vain
If you believe the lie you won't be free

Every time I seek you, you turn and run away
Every time I miss you, my heart is full of pain
Loving you is what I do, please try to understand
I died so you could come with me, to the Promised Land


Theory whispers in my ear, I came with a great big bang
Just a cell, no lungs or brain, a little floating thing
I got better later on with limbs and hair to comb
I had a lot of trees to climb, with new limbs I began to roam

Can you see that they are making a
Monkey out of you and me?

Mother evolution
It's the only way to explain their confusion
Mother evolution
Guessing their way into this delusion
Mother evolution
Making claims without resolution
Mother evolution
The greatest minds with no solution

In the sky I'll learn to fly, then cruise beneath the waves
I'll build a house right on the moon, I no longer need to breathe
As time grows I'll get more legs and exchange my nose for a trunk
I'm getting faster day by day, someday I'll be the perfect hunk


I have worked my life to know Your ways
So far my life has not been what I planned
I've tried to follow You all of my days
I want to understand

My heart's on fire
It's come down to the wire
My heart's on fire
You're my only desire

You are the author, creator of my life
And I will trust You through the darkest night
Sometimes the pain attacks with its merciless bite
Help me through this fight

Heaven has opened wide is its gates
Your Spirit now surrounds me
As I move on to meet my fate
You strengthen my faith


Painkillers to make my day
Life is a thrill what can I say
A pretty face and perfect style
Beautiful body only for a while
Seduced by fashion, I'm better than you
I won't be second cause that won't do
I must be on top, too far to drop
Loosing my grip, how can I stop

In the final hour
Dust returns to dust
Then we live on forever
Facing life's choices we must

My life is traveling at the speed of light
Quiet the mind, to find what is right
I'm pulled and stretched in every direction
Trying to live a life of perfection
I must slow down and think through this maze
Who can help me see through this haze
Gotta take a stand gotta take a hold
Ooh want you come and save my soul

5. DIE

Just an ordinary man just an ordinary guy
Got my life on top, spend some time to settle down
Are you ready to be taken away?
Would you leave it all behind?

Die, you need to die
Leave this world far behind
A better place for you and I
Die, you need to die
The chains that bind us here will free
By the one who holds eternity

Heading down that same old road, to the point of no return
You know you have a choice, isn't it time to make a turn
There's so much more to life for you to see
Can you imagine what I mean?

Die, you need to die
Leave this world far behind
A better place for you and I
Die, you need to die
The chains that bind us here will free
By the God who lives eternally

Die, you need to die
Leave this world far behind
A better place for you and I
Die, you need to die
The chains that bind us here will free
We will live eternally


Some might think my hair is to long
Some might fear the beat of this song
So much religion, so many rules
But this is us and we are tools

He calls us to be free
Enjoy that freedom, friends
In time, we all shall se
Where man-made rules end

I might offend you by how I look
But God will not, according to his book
It's by our fruit that we will be judged
To show the world Jesus love

So keep the sheep together
No matter if one's shaved
'Cause the wool means nothing
For all Christ came to save

I respect old-fashioned ways
Let's come together in His grace
Lord help us all to understand
How you can use a hard rock band

7. I AM

When you're out on the streets and you're looking for love
There's a voice calling you from above
Living a life in a way you don't like
The devil is ready to strike

It's your time to choose
There's no time to lose

I am, the way, the truth
I am the life
I am, your way, your truth
I am your life

In a land made of crystals with streets paved with gold
Whit hope and joy, we never grow old
Believe in the Son and you won't be denied
Don't be deceived by the great lie


Your mind is screaming and your heart is bleeding
You're soul aches and you don't know why
Searching for answers in religious myths
But nothing seems to satisfy

Emptiness grips your soul
Alone, forever falling into this black hole

Lay your burdens down
Chains will fall and you will be free
Lay your burdens down
Our eternal stain been paid for you and me
All your friends fade away
Left alone with nothing to say
Millions of questions burn in your soul
There is healing the heart can find

Look to the sky, never forget
Don't live in endless regret


Destructive power lies in our minds
They say there's "no heaven", we live than die
A fallen angel leads the way
Promising Heaven and delivering hell

But there's a way of life
It's the way of The Light
Ancient of days fountain of life
A love beyond measure everlasting life
Highway to grace eternal delight
We are his treasure if we trust Him with our lives

We got a fire that burns inside our souls
A gift of life, with no more death
Can you hear its voice callin' you
The voice of endless love


I've walked your path. I've followed my creed
But know I'm astray, are you still in the lead?
Desperate to feel your presence close
Renew Your spirit till my heart overflows
When my last day dawns, when I've won this race
I long to finally meet you face to face

As I reach for the goal
I give you my soul
Guide my way, be my light
As you hear my prayer tonight

So many times I've walked my own way
The goal of this world is to lead me astray
Why I've come back is simple to see
Your love is amazing, so simple and free
