01. Costs

Save your words, they fall on deaf ears. Save your words for the weak who will listen to you.
Save your words, they fall on deaf ears. Save your words for the weak who will listen to you.
Save your words, they fall on deaf ears. Save your words for the weak who will listen to you.
 
 
02. Unworthy

Filthy hands.

Worn and dirty feet. I walk the path of persecution.
Death unfolds before me as I see through tear-filled eyes.
Memories of past regrets all quickly become nothing.
Arms open wide I scream at the sky.

Let this fire burn. Let this fire burn and never die.
For the sake of something I won’t see with my own eyes. Let this fire burn.

Filthy hands raised to the sky. Your pain will not be in vain. Your pain will not be in vain.
The peace you found, the truth you sought; unworthy is still your claim.

Unworthy is still my claim. Walking with death could never compare to the pain.
Hopeless, my head to the ground, I lift my eyes to the earth with the sound of a steady pound.
Arms open wide I pray my goodbye. Arms open wide I pray my goodbye.

Filthy hands raised to the sky. Your pain will not be in vain. Your pain will not be in vain.
The peace you found, the truth you sought; unworthy is still your claim.
Unworthy is still your claim.... Unworthy....

Let this fire burn. Let this fire burn and never die.
For the sake of something I won’t see with my own eyes. Let this fire burn.
 
 
03. False Profits

If money makes the world go round, feed them lies to put them in the ground.
Tell them exactly what they want to hear because they all have itching ears.

You are the one that I despise. Instead of love you spread your lies. Again. Again. Again. Again.
So go ahead and prophesy and let the money satisfy.
How can you live your life knowing it’s just a lie?

Here I stand, I can do no other. Truth at all costs.
Here I stand, I can do no other. Truth at all costs.

If money keeps you satisfied, feed them lies as long as you get by.
Hide behind the name of Christ. You are the one I despise.
Instead of life... Instead of love you spread your lies. Again. Again. Again. Again.

Here I stand, I can do no other. Truth at all costs.
Here I stand, I can do no other. Truth at all costs.

I will stand ’til my last breath. I will stand against the lies.
I will stand against the lies, against the pain that you’ve caused inside so many lives.
You are the one I despise.
Your words, they seem as though they’re knives,
sunk deep into their backs and I can hear their cries.
I will defend the truth.

Truth at all costs. Your life’s a lie.
 
 
04. Gutcheck

You need a gutcheck. Got me on my knees praying for you.
You did this for me, now I’m doing this for you.
Your lack of faith is making me sick.
The only thing left is dealing with it. (dealing with it)

They said question everything, but I still believe.
When all my friends have picked up and gone, I still believe.

Spit you out... Spit you out. I spit you out my mouth.

You need a gutcheck. Got me on my knees praying for you.
You did this for me, now I’m doing this for you.
Your lack of faith is making me sick.
The only thing left is dealing with it. (dealing with it)

They said question everything, but I still believe.
When all my friends have picked up and gone, I still believe.

Towers fall, mountains shake, the earth quakes.
Towers fall, mountains shake, the earth quakes.

Spit you out.... Spit you out.... I spit you out my mouth.
 
 
05. Foundation

This foundation you stand on is paper-thin, budging with the wind.
I see you running – running from the truth. I hear the anger – anger in your shaking voice.
You are running in the dark. Stare me in the face and say there is nothing to live for, to die for.

This foundation you stand on is paper-thin, budging with the wind.
Look into my eyes and say there is nothing to live for, to die for.

Wasted life, wasted time, faithless living as this time rolls by.
The pride you carry makes you so weary. Stand on something stronger than yourself.
Stand on something stronger than yourself.

This foundation you stand on is paper-thin, budging with the wind.
Look into my eyes and say there is nothing to live for, to die for.

Wasted life, wasted time, faithless living as this time rolls by.
Wasted life, wasted time, faithless living as this time rolls by.
 
 
06. Brave New World
(feat. guest vocals by Jackson Greene of As Hell Retreats)

We crossed the big blue pond in search of religious freedom. Our gluttony is enslaving our own.
Pretty packaged garbage we sell to the innocent. Our hearts are filled with discontent.

Don’t you think it’s strange? Things weren’t set out this way.
Don’t you think it’s strange? Things just work out this way.
I’m just a man seeking truth. Brave new world. I’m just a man seeking truth. Brave new world.
I’m just a man seeking truth. Brave new world. I’m just a man seeking truth. Brave new world.

We crossed the big blue pond in search of religious freedom. Our gluttony is enslaving our own.
Pretty packaged garbage we sell to the innocent. Our hearts are filled with discontent.

We stumbled upon America. I’m tired of all these lies wrapped up in suits and ties.
We’ve stumbled upon America. Empty mouths are not filled with brick and mortar.

With friends like you (like you) who needs enemies?
With friends like you (like you) who needs enemies?
I’m so tired of all these sanctuary police. I’m so tired of all these sanctuary police.

I’m just a man seeking truth. Brave new world. I’m just a man seeking truth. Brave new world.
I’m just a man seeking truth. Brave new world. I’m just a man seeking truth. Brave new world.
 
 
07. Virtue

Tell me, tell me, tell me that I’m going nowhere. Tell me this isn’t enough.
I see what they go through. I guess you never had to feel that pain.
I’ve counted the cost. This is where I belong.

So many questions run through my head. Time for us to leave again.
My whole life packed in this van and the road is calling.
Remind me what you said again. How I’m on the road to nowhere land.
Well, this is what I’m made for. If only you could understand.

This is what I’m made for. This is what I’m made for.
I’ve counted the cost, nothing to lose because He gave me everything I’ve lost.
This is what I’m made for.

Miles and miles away from home thinking ’bout the things I can’t let go.
But as sure as the breath inside of me I know that this is where I belong.
I see the hurt, I feel the pain. This is what I’m made for. Maybe now you’ll understand.

Tell me, tell me, tell me that I’m going nowhere. Tell me this isn’t enough.
I see what they go through. I guess you never had to feel that pain.
I’ve counted the cost. This is where I belong. This is where I belong.

I have counted the cost, nothing to lose because He gave me everything I’ve lost.

Tell me, tell me, tell me that I’m going nowhere. Tell me this isn’t enough.
I see what they go through. I guess you never had to feel that pain.
I’ve counted the cost. This is where I belong.
 
 

08. Kingdom Minded

You haven’t done what I’ve done. You haven’t seen what I’ve seen. What will we do with life?

What will we do with it? We’re only here for a moment.
One glance, a blink of an eye, one chance – it’s your only try.
What will we do with it? We’re only here for a moment.
I don’t live twice, because I refuse to step back and watch my life go by.

Kingdom minded – I am Kingdom minded. Kingdom minded – I am Kingdom minded.

What will we do with it? We’re only here for a moment.
One glance, a blink of an eye, one chance – it’s your only try.
What will we do with it? We’re only here for a moment.
I don’t live twice, because I refuse to step back and watch my life go by.

Living in light of the Kingdom. Living in light of eternity.
Living in light of the Kingdom. Living in light of eternity.

Kingdom minded – I am Kingdom minded. Kingdom minded – I am Kingdom minded.
Kingdom minded – I am Kingdom minded. Kingdom minded – I am Kingdom minded.
I am Kingdom minded. I am Kingdom minded. I am Kingdom minded.

You haven’t done what I’ve done. You haven’t been where I’ve been.
You haven’t done what I’ve done. You haven’t been where I’ve been.
What will we do with life? This is no game. You only have one life.
What will you do with life? There is no game. You only have one life.

 

 

09. Dreams

I am weak from the weight I carry. I am sick from the poison I’ve been fed.
Go ahead, judge my ways, you don’t know right from wrong.
I will overpower this doubt that you’ve lodged into my soul.
I will be myself when everyone tells me to be someone else.

Save your words, they fall on deaf ears. Save your words for the weak.

Go ahead, keep pouring this doubt into my mind – into my soul.
Your words are nothing more than the dreams you’ve left un-followed.
Judge my ways. (Judge my ways.) Judge my ways. (Judge my ways.)

I am weak from the weight I carry. I am sick from the poison I’ve been fed.

I am sick. (I am sick.) I am weak. (I am weak.)
Save your words, they fall on deaf ears. Save your words for the weak.
Save your words, they fall on deaf ears. Save your words for the weak.
Save your words, they fall on deaf ears. Save your words for the weak.
