1. PREACHCORE LIVES!

Sleeping Giant!
Up from the underground!
We leave behind a legacy of praise!

Kingdom over everything!

I can still feel the rain,
Thinking back over these last years,
Reminded again,
You're the only joy in this world of pain! (Pain!)

Let Your word run wild!
And our hearts be filled with Your fire and reign
And recognition of one true name! (Name!)

Let the freedom come and the truth be seen!
My prayer is that all may know what You truly meant to me!

Up from the underground!
We leave behind a legacy of praise!

Don't perform for the crowd,
But reform for the crown!

Sleeping Giant!

Kingdom over everything!

You'll have the words of life
You'll see the fear in their eyes
But don't be intimidated
The darkness in them is just afraid of the light! (Light!)

Let Your word run wild!
And our hearts be filled with Your fire and reign
And recognition of one true name! (name!)

Let the freedom come and the truth be seen!
My prayer is that all may know what You truly meant to me!

Christ, my strength, my song!
Know, my life is yours
'Til we meet again
I will worship for an audience of One!

For an audience of One!

We leave behind a legacy of praise!


2. SECOND CHANCE KIDS (FT. MATTIE MONTGOMERY OF FOR TODAY)

No truce, no compromise
Someone gave their life for me
I get it - you better recognize (x2)

Now I will never return to the life
I destroyed the twisted pain of my sinful mind
I broke the pact with the void

Leaving our past behind us
No backward glances
Now we stand in the glory of our second chances

Second chance kids!

Leaving our past behind us
No backward glances
Now we stand in the glory of our second chances

Pain!

From this earth I was born and
From this earth I was formed but
In the end I will soar

Eternal Kingdom reborn!

No truce, no compromise
Someone gave their life for me
I get it - you better recognize

Leaving our past behind us
No backward glances
Now we stand in the glory of our second chances

Second chance kids!

Leaving our past behind us
No backward glances
Now we stand in the glory of our second chances

Second chance kids!

I'm gonna take my chances

No truce, no compromise
Never looking back!
You better recognize!

You let your circumstances write the script
That's worth forgetting

This is your second chance!
Now let the King of Kings take hold of you!
No more regretting!

This is your second chance!

God gave you life!

Take it!


3. NO LOVE (FT. GARRETT RUSSELL OF SILENT PLANET)

We've got no love,
We pushed the world away (x2)

We've got no love

Not your buildings and not your plans
Not your doctrines, oh sons of man!
Not the judgments that push and shove
They'll only know that you're Mine by love
Tear it down, tear it down, go!
There's only one thing that we can show
Break apart the sickening world
There's still only one way they will know
All the world will know
All the world will see (x2)
All the world will call upon
'Cause every soul has a right to believe

How can they believe in You?
How can they know if they can't see our love?
See our love?

Why would they believe it's true?
How can they know if they can't see our love?
See our love?
We've got no love
We pushed the world away (x2)
True love, personified
Holy God, crucified
Hatred makes Him nothing more
Than homophobic holy war
Flags and racists stage the shows
It's all a fraud, no one knows
Faint desire, look above
The truth of God is found in love
All the world will know
All the world will see (x2)
All the world will call upon
'Cause every soul has a right to believe

How can they believe in You?
How can they know if they can't see our love?
See our love?
Why would they believe it's true?
How can they know if they can't see our love?
See our love?


4. CLEAR EYES, FULL HEARTS

How deep is the scar, the wound, the vow
I swear we've been here before
But everything should be different now

Sail your sinking ship,
Familiar spirits laughing out loud
Cycles of perpetual abuse and addiction I cannot allow

Solider, be sober, be vigilant or be consumed yourself
Be sober, be vigilant, or be consumed!

Don't be consumed!
Be consumed yourself!
Your enemy prowls!

Keep your head straight!

The lion walking the line between legal and lawless
His eyes glisten, there's cracks in your armor

We know this culture defines us
Orphans worthless
Low of the life
Scum of the earth

I defy!
I've made my decision
Oh royal blood

Don't touch their wine
Lest in ignorance drink and fall and die
Speak hope from a clear mind
My eyes are open

My eyes are open
We see the signs of the times
I know I've been here before

Blood in your eyes, your character's gone
But I guess that they've already opened the door
The good book in my grip
A new vision in mind

Disciples sinking with the bottle
That won't stand for me and my kind

Soldier, be sober, be vigilant or be consumed yourself
Be sober, be vigilant, or be consumed!
Don't be consumed!
Be consumed yourself

Disciples,
Keep your head straight!


5. LANTERN (FT. BRUCE LEPAGE OF 100 DEMONS)

I was lost and now I'm found (x3)

Born to fear
Left for dead
Straight to hell
Left alone

I was lost and now I'm found

I was lost, I was lost, I was lost in darkness

Disciples of an orphan world, left to find our way alone
How dare you all point at my kind, from the safety of your Father's home?

Father's joy
A Father's crown
A Son is born to let You down

Who else lived beneath the lie?
A man is born to fail and die
Fail!
Fail and die!
Fail!

Lost in darkness

I refuse to hide like a pretender
I give my gift of life to just One
I now light the lantern called surrender
Father come and find your lost son!
Please help me!

I was lost and now I'm found (x3)

Born to fear
Left for dead
Straight to hell
Left alone

I was lost and now I'm found

I was lost, i was lost, i was lost in darkness

We were never born to fear
Religion left Your children here
I will fight to end your shame!
I know my Father and my name!

Father's joy
A Father's crown
A Son is born to take the ground

Who else lived beneath the lie?
A man is born to fail and die
Fail!
Fail and die!
Fail!

Born from darkness

I refuse to hide like a pretender
I give my gift of life to just One
I now light the lantern called surrender
Father come and find your lost son!
Please help me!

Discipled by an orphan world!

Light the lantern! (x2)

Discipled by an orphan world!

Light the lantern!


6. NO SLEEP PT. 2

I was there to give your name – I was only a kid myself!
And I was lost when you went away – that moment of living hell!
Phone calls to hear your voice – this isn't what you deserve!
But a father's love never dissipates – I swore that you'd come back to me!

Dark night. I'm weary. But I'll stay awake!

No sleep from my eyes!

Didn't I, didn't I say – you'll get no sleep from me!
Didn't I, didn't I tell you – I am a patient man. I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait!
Didn't I, didn't I say – you'll get no sleep from me!

Ten years I have stayed – it's felt like a lifetime!
You are shining destiny – you're part of a dynasty!
I've fought for you and I've prayed – this intercession has cost blood!
I believe in you, you've found your way – just One way

And now you're on a journey with me!

Dark night. I'm weary. I swore I'd stay awake.

Didn't I, didn't I say – you'll get no sleep from me!
Didn't I, didn't I tell you – I am a patient man. I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait!
Didn't I, didn't I say – you'll get no sleep from me!

When you pass through the waters I will be with you
When you walk on the waves you won't be swept away
When you pass through the waters I will be with you
When you look in my eyes you'll see that I'm awake
When you pass through the waters I will be with you

A father is always a watchman!
When you walk on the waves you won't be swept away
My child, protected, I'm looking out!
When you pass through the waters I will be with you

A father, a daughter, a watchman!
When you look in my eyes you'll see that I'm awake
All my watchmen – stay up!


7. HAUNTED

This enduring suffering
The Cross captures the attention of the world
The mystery revealed!

Mystery!
Revealed!
I stand at the foot of the Cross!

All my questions swirl!
I have so many whys!
I can see Your face
In this cloud of unknowing!

His life is in my hands!
But I can't see the sky!
This whole place is ghosts -
Or is it my own mind?

My heart, my world - so diseased!
Will I ever find a sense of peace?
The realization - I am haunted!

This enduring suffering
The Cross captures the attention of the world
The mystery revealed!

Mystery!
Revealed!
I stand at the foot of the Cross!

Into the pit You came
With such determined eyes
You reached out Your hand...
It's okay, just let me die!

Why are You pulling me up?
Why is Your blood in my eyes?
I've been lost in the war, but
Why are You on my side?

Looking back, I couldn't see what You wanted
Now I realize, it was me and I am haunted

I am haunted (x2)

I am wounded
I am ruined
I am haunted

I am wounded
I am ruined
I am haunted

By this Love


8. FLY. FIGHT. CROW. (FT. RYAN CLARK OF DEMON HUNTER)

How do we compare? Just another orphan generation..
How do we compare? A generation of lost boys!

I hear your songs, I don't dance and I will not stay
I know the truth now and I'll never walk away
This generation doesn't recognize its own name
I'm sorry folks - my tribe and people don't play!
It's a mob and the crowd is louder than I care to bear on my way.

Condemning voices they talk and talk and talk
Condemning judges just never say a thing -
they neglect the Cross of Christ but it's the only power for true change!

I reduce the choir to one voice
I choose the assignment of the cast aside
My place is outside of group-think
I choose to identify as crucified!

Crucified!

Crucified!

How do we compare? Just another orphan generation..
How do we compare? A generation of lost boys!

Give me a name, give me a home - lost boys!
I'm so afraid, I'm so alone - lost boys!
Give me a name, give me a home - lost boys, finding our way home!

I hear your songs, I don't dance and I will not stay
I know the truth now and I'll never walk away
This generation doesn't recognize its own name
I'm sorry folks - my tribe and people don't play!
It's a mob and the crowd is louder than I care to bear on my way.

Condemning voices they talk and talk and talk
Condemning judges just never say a thing -
they neglect the Cross of Christ but it's the only power for true change!

Orphan generation - identify as crucified!

I choose to lay down my life! Crucified!
Identify as crucified!

Lost boys - your assignment is "The Crucified"

Crucified!

Your assignment:
Lost.


9. REFORMATION (FT. BROOK REEVES OF IMPENDING DOOM)

Oppression at the hands of the priest
Progression begins with an overthrow of manipulation

This is our Wittenberg hour
No more religious control!
Out of rebellion we establish the new
Healing for the hurting soul

Live like He lived
Die like He died
Live like He lived
With the world to come in mind

Restoration 'til the war is won!
Reformation! Reformation come!

Oppression at the hands of the priest
Progression begins with an overthrow of manipulation

No other law in this reformation!
Only the law of selfless love!
One chapter closes another begins!
With a standard of fire from above!

Live like He lived
Die like He died
Live like He lived
With the world to come in mind

This is our reformation!
Until the war is won!

Restoration 'til the war is won!
Reformation! Reformation come!

Restoration 'til the war is won!
Reformation! Reformation come!

Reformation come!


10. HOSANNA

Hold up the light to see the Way
Hold fast your hope in peace
The Savior has come!

Move! Bleed with me! Dominate and demonstrate in the presence of hatred!
Bow low! Stand and sing! Please believe – the Savior reigns, so prophesy with me!

Hold up the light to see:
You are the light
The Way
The light of the world

Hold fast your hope in peace
This is the Kingdom!
The Savior has come!

The Savior has come!

I heard Your whisper in my darkest day, "Behold the Lamb who takes the pain away."

What can I say? – You are the God who answered me! You are the Lord whose love has conquered my world!

Suffering King! Author of life! You gave everything!

The world's at war, there's chaos on all side!
He stops the storm!
It's calm in my mind!

Move! Bleed with me! Dominate and demonstrate in the presence of hatred!

What can I say? – You are the God who answered me! You are the Lord whose love has conquered my world!

Suffering King! Author of life! You gave everything!

So we sing Hosanna!

Hosanna!

Hosanna!

Hosanna!


11. SMASHED UPON THE ROCK

I've built my life with these sticks and these stones
With all that I can steal or mend or break
I've built myself a fractured home
And late at night I fear and shake in the unknown

Lovesick. Warfare. Worn thin. Thread bare.

I'll rebuild. I'll add it up. If you know hope, please tell it to reach me soon...

Smashed my life upon the Rock
Breaking all its locks and chains

Test my work by Holy fire
And let the worthless things be ripped away!

Tell me why Your Son was born die?
Why He chose to pay the highest price?
Bringing mercy to the cast aside!
Were we even worth the sacrifice?

What good is life when you're lost and alone?
With nothing in the give that's worth the take?
Who really understands the way that we're thrown?
Into the chaos and the void of the unknown!

I'm sick! Gun shy! No care! Suicide! I'm at the end! Walls closing in! If you know hope, please tell it to reach me soon...

Smashed my life upon the Rock
Breaking all its locks and chains

Test my work by Holy fire
And let the worthless things be ripped away, before the waves consume me!

Tell me why Your Son was born die?
Why He chose to pay the highest price?
Bringing mercy to the cast aside!
Were we even worth the sacrifice?

The only thing a man can take as he passes through the grave is love!

Smashed upon the rock!

I bid you farewell!
