Disc 1 - The Kingdom of Man


01.
Forever

Forever, the concept is heavy, the truth about it so hard to grasp.
This place, my will, words, decisions are here and now.
But I will never hold onto forever.
So my anger at the pain in this world has a hold on me.
Put a change in the way I believe. Open my eyes to the truth behind this all.
This is still breaking me down and I am powerless to change it.

I want to know, I want to see.
Re-create these hands, make them of a gentle man’s. All my ways have been flawed.
Re-create these hands, make them of a gentle man’s. All my ways have been flawed.
Re-create these hands, make them of a gentle man’s. All my ways have been flawed.
I want to know, I want to see. Re-create these hands...
Make them one of a gentle man’s. All my ways have been flawed.

Put a change in the way I believe. Open my eyes to the truth behind this all.
This is still breaking me down and I am powerless to change it.

I won’t let truth be relative. I need to see it, I need to know it.
May I be a catalyst. Hope has been embodied in me.
I know that somehow I can change the world.

Re-create these hands, make them one of a gentle man’s. All my ways have been flawed.
 
 
02. Blind in Retrospect

Has the world found your weakness, the desire to conquer your will?
All things will fade away.
Has the world found your weakness, the desire to conquer your will?

What has this life been guided by? A question for us all.  
What is the motivation behind? A question for us all.
Can we find the ability to stand, hold our own when things all come down?
My guard must not fall, the deception of the one who drives this will break us down.

But if we fall I hope we will be shown mercy, grace to endure.
Is this time well spent? Can I now see change?
Don’t be swept away. Strong is the man who endures.
Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way.

This life is a gift. Take this opportunity to look back.
Don’t think tomorrow is a definite or will bring change. Work hard for your passion.

Has the world found your weakness, the desire to conquer your will? All things will fade away.
Has the world found your weakness, the desire to conquer your will? All things will fade away.
 
 
03. Growth in Passion

Have you forgotten how it feels to be whole?
Reach out your hand and receive the gift of a greater freedom.
Bound by the things we’ve done, is there hope for change?
This love it cannot be contained.

I see growth in passion, I have passion for change.
Can there be a cure with surrender, a treatment with complete sacrifice?

Have you forgotten how it feels to be whole?
Reach out your hand and receive the gift of a greater freedom.
Bound by the things we’ve done, is there hope for change?
This love it cannot be contained.

Have we lost how to truly give?
If only we could open our eyes to the needs of others close by, their holes would be realized.
Realized, seeing in full. All clarity opened to me... opened to me.

Turning this place from separation to swells of compassion.
I know kindness was shown to me, even life’s breath was given to me.
You can make this the time, we can make this the time.
Giving with no regard, we can make this the time.
This is so unexpected, are you hungry for change?
Realized, seeing in full. All clarity opened to me... opened to me.
 
 
04. Forsaken Me

(feat. guest vocals by Matt Wentworth of Our Last Night)

There must be... there must be more to all of this.
There must be... there must be more to all of this.

There must be more. These dreams have been shattered, broken.
My hope has been foolish. These are dark days.
If only I had one promise, one moment to cling to.
Will these struggles purify or be my ruin?
Will these struggles purify? Overthrow, renew.

I’m waiting on, I’m waiting on these promises.
They were made for me, they were meant for me.
And I’ll persevere and hold fast hope in the face of fear.
When you speak to me, will you speak to me?


Is there more? There must be more. Is there more? There must be more.
Will your power be made... made perfect in weakness?
Purpose, drive me on, overthrow. Purpose, drive me on. Purpose, renew.
 
 
Disc 2 - The Kingdom of Darkness


05. Ruler of the Air
- [Audio Stream]

(feat. guest vocals by Jake Luhrs of August Burns Red)

(Ephesians 2:1 and Colossians 1:13)

Darkness... this is the kingdom of darkness.
I thought I knew... I thought I knew who I was.

Kept down, kept away from any straight and narrow.
Its hold can look like so many things (so many things),
as long as you never reach your goal.
Never find who you are, never find who you really are.

Do I know who we are?

It wants to beat and break you, beat and break you down.
It wants to beat and break you, beat and break you down.
It wants to beat and break you, beat and break you down.
The Kingdoms: They are divided. Don’t be fooled. Don’t be fooled.
Darkness... this is the kingdom of darkness.

That’s why we wrestle not... we wrestle not with flesh and blood.
Deception, where the truth is bent just a little to fool you.
Hoping in things that are ruined by moths and rust.
Darkness will steal, kill, destroy. ...steal, kill, destroy. ...steal, kill, destroy.
 
 
06. Take Notes

This pain is not yours. The depth behind this distrust breathes life from the dark side.
Born from the other side. The depth behind, straight from behind this other side.

When others lead lives that bend the rules put in place.
This giving (this giving), this ripping.
When others lead lives that bend the rules put in place.
This giving (this giving). This weight won’t last on you.

Giving all, unconditional, this takes a pure heart.
Sweet and true, yours is of gold, the best I know.
Now it’s time to stop the over and over. Now it’s time...
Let your responsibility be the change, let your endurance be the change.
Born from the other side. The depth behind, straight from this other side.

There are plenty of reminders. Don’t forget the battle has been won.
There are plenty of reminders. Don’t forget the battle is won.

You are still a diamond in the rough.
Hold true to the way that you are and He
will bring you through... will bring you through.
Hold true to the way that you are and He
will bring you through (will bring you through)... will bring you through.
 
 
07. Swarm

Swarm....

Swarming darkness.
Like a plague of locusts destroying everything it touches.
Devouring all that’s good, leaving only barren waste.
And conquering your will, this is a pure addiction.
Don’t be deceived; it’s here to stay.
This will eat your flesh, drink your blood, crush your humanity.
You will shame your family for generations. You will shame your family.
This perverted thirst begging your end, hollowing your bones.
Stone on top of stone, on top of stone,
drawing further down into a coward’s hell, isolated and alone.

Leave this world behind. Cut off ties with razor’s edge.
Beat down darkness, beat it back with...
Beat back darkness with brothers’ arms and the Blood of the Lamb.
Beat down darkness with brothers’ arms and the Blood of the Lamb.
Beat down darkness with brothers’ arms and the Blood of the Lamb.
Beat down darkness with brothers’ arms and the Blood of the Lamb.
 
 

08. Buried Idols

You’ve got yourself wrapped around this. It will dig your grave.
You should know the empty things of this world digs you a shallow grave.
The wealth you crave is holding you back from the truth.
Will the heart become so calloused from self-deceit?
There is more than stacking stones, one by one,
Making walls because your castle is bound to fall
Stacking stones, one by one.

The day will come when a wealthy man will lose it all.
When the prideful men will be humbled and the arrogant struck-down.
You should know the empty things of this world digs you a shallow grave.
The wealth you crave is holding you back from the truth.
Will the heart become so calloused from self-deceit?
Now....
Gain the whole world, you will never have enough.
Gain the whole world, you will never have enough.
Gain the whole world, you will never have enough.
Gain the whole world, you will never have enough.

 

 

Disc 3 - The Kingdom of God


09. Induction


Some of you need to hear this for the first time, and so this is from our hearts:

The Kingdom of God is for the burnouts, the broken, and the broke, the drug addicts, the divorced, the HIV-positive, the herpes-ridden, the hopeless, for the outcasts that have been created by the church, and for the outcasts of our society that have been created by us.

The Kingdom of God is for the brain-damaged, the incurably ill, for the barren, the pregnant-too-many-times, and the pregnant-at-the-wrong-time. This is for the over-employed, the underemployed, the unemployable, and the unemployed. This is for the swindled, the shoved aside, the left aside, the replaced, the incompetent, and the stupid. This is for the emotionally starved and the emotionally dead.

The Kingdom of God is for the bigoted, the murderers, the child molesters, the brutals, the drug lords, the terrorists, the perverted, the raging alcoholics, over-consumers, the incredibly ugly, the dumb, the ignorant, the starving, the filled, and the filthy rich. The Kingdom of God is for everyone and the Kingdom of God is for me.

 

 

10. Who I Am

This is who I am!
I’ll walk out this Kingdom not as a duty but an honor.
Now called a son, I’ve been set free from the slavery of sin.
And when I fall, I stand in the face of darkness and I say: This is who I am.

My father has freed my past, present, and future.

He doesn’t see what I see, He doesn’t see what you see.
He sees my destiny and calls me to be a son.
This is who I am, in the midst of a firefight; You’ve called me a son.
This is who I am, by the power of the risen death and what You’ve done.
This is who I am, all I’ve been and who I’ve become. Oh oh oh...
This is who I am, who I am: I’m a son! ...who I am.

 

 

11. Like a River - [Audio Stream]

This is a flowing river, like no other.
A constant power, a spirit enduring. Running through like blood.
Shining freedom, truth in a world full... full of deception.
Embodied in passion for grace. Always growing, always full.

It will run through like blood.

This is for the broken, seeking out redemption, nothing else can heal through and through.
This is for all the people, singing restoration.

It will run, river of life empower. It stands at the front lines declaring.
Called into being free, pouring out and overflowing, alive.

This is for the broken, seeking out redemption, nothing else can heal through and through.
This is for all the people, singing restoration.

Flowing like water, streams of living water. Putting out deadly fires.

 

 

12. The Healer - [Audio Stream]

(Matthew 10:5-8)

By His stripes we are healed.
By His spirit we can heal the sick, raise the dead, and cleanse lepers, cast out demons.
With a confessing tongue and a mustard seed we can move the earth. We can move the earth.
I am a powerful ambassador, made to overcome. I am a partner in the Kingdom come.

Confessing tongues and the faith of a mustard seed.
We move the earth and we’re taking back our seat.
By His stripes we are healed.

So as you go, say to the lost: "The Kingdom of heaven is near."
Freely you have received and freely you must give.

Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, and cast out demons.
Experience will not dictate truth about You, God. You are holy, just and good to all.
Confessing tongues and the faith of a mustard seed.
We move the earth and w’re taking back our seat.
Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as in heaven.


 

13. Ascension

(feat. guest vocals by Joel Davis of Ascend The Hill)

(Acts 1:1-11)

When will You settle the score? When will You make the world right again?
We hear You promising power, but what does this mean and how am I to live?
And don’t go now! Don’t go now, what are we to do?
I know I won’t know, but I want to know. And as You go You’re telling us to go.

How can this be the plan, how can we change the world?
I’m seeing now that we are to fight for their lives.
And when we call upon Your holy name hell can’t stand against the power in us.
