What could I hear before the roar? What could I see before the light? Safe in the dark in mothers’ heart. Her body harboring my life Until an hour would bring me forth in bitter cries and blood and pain Into a world so loud and sharp. Into a place. Into a name I was born into noise. Estranged from my Father, astray from His voice Into confusion. Into chaos and a thousand voices raised All clamoring for weight and worth. O, to be heard among the fray Is there a reason in the madness, or a solace in the sane? O to go back before the roar. O, to be heard and not in vain

This is how it is here. Welcome to our race. Fall and be trampled no difference to us This is how it is here. Welcome to the pace of hurtling onward from dust back to dust This is how it is here. Orphans of our fall. Ripped from our Father and cast out to flee This is how it is here. Orphans one and all. Exiles. Wanderers. Cold refugees Run for your life. All knuckles white. All hands tied tight. This is how it is here. Desperation reigns. Hunger enthroned on the backs of our sons This is how it is here. Transient escapes are best you can ask for before you are done Run for your manumission Run until the earth gives way Run though your feet are bleeding Run from the Judgement Day

Liar 04:26
Tell me your story. Feed me some more Sweet like the honey. Strong like the truth I’ll feast until I vomit. Forever hungry You’re making me like you Your beauty enraptures. Promise me everything I want this world you’ve constructed, construed All for my pleasure, glory and power You’re making me like you Liar Something is wrong here. Subtly different Returns diminish. Promises skew Is this real love yet? Bitter, tormented You’re making me like you I thought you loved me? What is my name? Will you not answer? Will you not soothe This burning desire? Hollow and empty You’re making me like you

Speak True 04:16
Here among bones I find peace down in the depths of my soul Gone are the answers of men. Left is the question of God Son of man, speak true. Here your brothers lie. Can these bones live? Here among bones I find rest down in the depths of my soul Gone are the answers of men. Left is the question of God Answer Me

One Word 04:27
Here is something different unlike anything Substance of the shadows. Long awaited dream Thunderous amazement deafening decree All I hear are one All I hear are one. Glorious in song All I hear is One Word Nothing of the earth ever spoke like this Symphony of light different yet the same Perfectly reflecting joyous in its’ make All I hear are one
