Track Name: Born Into Noise
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
Track Name: Run For Your Life
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
Track Name: Liar
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
Track Name: Speak True
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
Track Name: One Word
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
