Time & Eternal

1 – Time

When I die where do I go, do I ascend up above or do I rot in this hole? I am a sinner just like the rest. Do I ascend up above? Does the fire feast on my flesh?
When I die where do I go, do I ascend up above or do I rot in this hole? Death is the path to eternity from time – look in my eyes and watch me die.
The shadows of my past are cast too dark – too dark for me to shine.
Buried alive by the sands of time, the hourglass flips as I begin to die. Death is a transformation to eternity from time. Lost at sea I float into the darkness of my mind.
So what’s the point of being alive, cause ever since I can remember I’ve been living a lie.
I am ashamed of what I’ve done I hate what I have become, one last breath before the plunge.
I let the ocean fill my lungs.
We love and die by the hands of time.
The taste in my mouth reminds me of a place – a place that I once knew.
I lay adrift in this ocean of time, waiting for the tide to bring me back to you. I thought I heard you say my name I’m digging my own grave.
Watch me die.

2 – Superficial Savior

All of this means nothing, tell me what are we living for, as we worship a superficial savior.
This world that we live in condones all of my sin. It paints a portrait of acceptance, of a world that puts more worth in possessions then our very own loved ones.
It seems to me all you see is someone on the street trying to sell you on who you should be.
You can never buy beauty and you will never define me.
Tonight, tonight you’re the only reason that my heart still beats, I wish everyone could see. It doesn’t matter. It never mattered. Supersede everything I see that isn’t you. It doesn’t matter, it never mattered. You are the one that can save me from myself. No one else can save me from this hell.
Turn my back to the ones that made me, brainwashed by society. You can have everything in the world but it all means nothing.
We are so near-sighted we are blinded from the truth. We waste our lives always wanting more. We’re always searching for a superficial savior.
Tonight, tonight you’re the only reason that my heart still beats, I wish everyone could see. It doesn’t matter. It never mattered. Supersede everything I see that isn’t you.
It doesn’t matter, it never mattered. You are the one that can save me from myself. No one else can save me from this hell.

3 – Injustice

One nation under God, where is God in this nation? No one is safe, our worst fears are yet to come.
I will embrace the end.
This nation is decaying from the inside out.
I realize we live lives of lies. Stab out my eyes and rid me of my sight. This culture teaches us how to die. So we must stand and fight for what is right.
We are the threat.
Try and cut me down but you won’t, you think you’re so smart like you know something I don’t.
Well know this I’m sick of the lies. Never will I bow to you never will I die.
One nation under God, where is God in this nation?
This nation is decaying from the inside out.
I realize we live lives of lies. Stab out my eyes and rid me of my sight. This culture teaches us how to die. So we must stand and fight for what is right.
You are not safe, your worst fears are yet to come.
When death rears its ugly head you will rue the day, I will embrace the end.
We are the threat.

4 – Dirge

Time is Death.

Eternal Rest.

5 – Bereavement

How can you forgive me if I can’t forgive myself?
I took you for granted and now you’re gone. How could you take him from me?
Father dig my grave, no matter what I go through I could never – never forget you.
Memories run through my mind, only moments frozen in time, I have so much pain things just aren’t the same.
He lived a life of happiness, a life filled with love, I need to just keep breathing.
Who knows what tomorrow will bring. Because tomorrow’s a broken promise.
Live my life in regret it was so hard to see you go but in the end there is hope I will never let go. I will never forget you.

You took his life like a thief in night for all I know you could take mine – with the blink of an eye when you could die I watched the light leave your eyes.
I will see you again, until then I will cherish these memories. You will always have a place in my heart.
Live my life in regret it was so hard to see you go but in the end there is hope. I will never let go. I will never forget you.
I put you in the ground, But I see you in the sky.
If you could see me now you would be so proud.

6 – Transgressor

Before I knew you I was scum of earth, empty and broken from the moment of birth. Without you I am no one.
All we are is filthy dust if I were him I wouldn’t claim us. We are all dirty thieves, doing what we want when we please. Who will save me from this body of death, a miracle from every breath. Empty and broken body of death.

I gaze into this void of problems and I see myself begging for help.
Once you choose your path there is no turning back. It’s everything or nothing – it’s now or never staring face to face with forever.
Don’t choke, swallow your pride – everyone deserves to die.
As far as I can tell we should all be burning in hell. Only your grace can save, just and supreme forever sovereign He reigns.

I gaze into this void of problems and I see myself begging for help.
How can we live our lives as if they were our own how could we call this place our home. We are the heirs to the throne.

7 – Pentecost

8 – Beacons

What happened to that heart of fire that burned so bright so everyone can see? A light of truth like a beacon that brings us back to you.
I lose myself with every sin like a fire dying in the wind.
I may stumble on your path but you always get me back on my feet.
All I am is a broken promise, don’t let me disappoint you again.
Every sin is another nail in the cross why do I do this to you – why do I do this to myself?
I don’t know if I can follow this path without turning my back. I can’t set myself free but maybe that isn’t how it was meant to be.
I can’t save myself.
Condemn me to hell if for a moment I believe I can save myself.
Intentions of righteousness are not my own but from Christ alone.

Every sin is another nail in the cross why do I do this to you – why do I do this to myself?
I am trying to be a better man striving to live my life guided by your hand.

9 – Approaching the Throne

Approaching the throne – you delivered me from death, my eyes from the tears, you gave me every breath. you took away my regrets, nothing in my hands I bring, simply to the cross I cling.
You paid my debt and now I’m free.
You washed my hands clean and now I’m free.
He put his son in my place, not in vain.
It’s the heart of grace.
All of the things I don’t deserve I have received, Creator of heaven and earth, your death is what animates me.
My name is written on his hands, my name is written on his heart, he forged all of my plans from the very start – for his love will never depart.
I will approach the throne in faith.
Approaching the throne - you delivered me from death my eyes from the tears, you gave me every breath. You took away my regrets, nothing in my hands I bring, simply to the cross I cling.
You paid my debt and now I’m free.
He put his son in my place, not in vain.
It’s the heart of grace.
All of the things I don’t deserve I have received, Creator of heaven and earth, your death is what animates me.
I will sing a song of praise, I will glorify your name, you put your son in my place, you paid my debt, and now all I know is grace. You have given me everything, I long to hear you say – you are forgiven.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, salvation has been won, I am a beggar adopted as a son, I long to hear him say, you are forgiven.

10 – Eternal

Finally I know the truth, finally I’ve been renewed.
I stand on solid ground, I know there has to be more to life than what we see. I know there’s more to life than just me.
I stand on solid ground. You save me from my own demise.
Every scar is a constant reminder of the former self, that empty shell of a man that I once was. I am forgive for what I’ve done.
All of my sins are washed away by your holy son.
I am not a slave to death.
I will not become like the rest.
I am not a slave to death.
I will not become like the rest.
I will not idle by and watch you burn. I will not become another burden on this earth.
I stand on solid ground, I know there has to be more to life than what we see. I know there’s more to life than just me. I stand on solid ground. Finally I’m set free.
I am forgiven, I am a new man, I will eagerly wait for the end. I’ll leave this past life behind me, now finally I’m free.
