Track Name: The Achromatic World
Bring me the Beautiful Things,
Give me the sun, where it rises and sets!
Show me the holy things.
Show me what defines Beauty!
“There is a light; it will shine like none other,
it will show all colours in The Achromatic World!
Showing the threads of love implanted in all creation.”
Bring me the holy things.
Show me what defines Beauty!
It tortures my heart to see you act this way,
And I’m sure it must torture you too.
Where is that light we all once had?
We gave it all for nothing!
Justice will not be solved with death, but with Forgiveness.
Love is our light.
Like cowboys we ride, holding our lights.
But even cowboys got to die.
Ride with us! Carry and Share our light!
For even cowboys got to die.
Track Name: Martyrs (Part I)
Called to the land where tears of joy and dreams are never fulfilled.
I see oppression in the core of every eye that looks at me,
I promise it’ll change, I’ll bring God here!
And then the tanks rolled in!
With weapons in hand, they come to take my flesh!
But I won’t fear them!
I won’t fear the ones who take from my flesh,
only flesh and spirit I will fear.
Pacifist is not my soul, Pacifist is not my actions.
And if I die fighting, I will be one with the martyrs.
How dare you compromise the faith of millions by your
sentiments and opinions that make you king?
You are nothing more than mortal
than like the rest of us.
How dare you compromise me?
To the stake, TO THE STAKE!
To the stake I go, they go to take my flesh.
But I won’t fear them!
I won’t fear the ones who take from my flesh,
Only flesh and spirit I will fear.
Pacifist is not my soul, Pacifist is not my actions.
And if I die fighting, I will be one with the martyrs.
I share a smile with my oppressor
I do not fear him
I share a smile with him again
I pray it sinks in
Track Name: The Line I Made And Sadly Crossed
I made a line in the sand,
And I sadly crossed it.
After I promised myself I wouldn't do this.
I made a line in the sand,
and I used the ocean as an excuse
for washing it all up, when I knew I
drew my line to close to the shore.
Let me make things clear,
I never wanted this.
But how could I have chosen this?
Was I really that foolish?
And I’d tell you everything,
But would you love me less?
Oh, I know you won’t love me less!
So I’ll sing a song for my lover,
So I’ll sing a song to my God,
And I don’t give a care who’s listening
as long as I’m singing to my Lord!
Move slowly, so I may feel your beat again.
Maybe this time I won’t get out of rhythm, out of line.
How many times have I done this? How many times?
I lost count
and hopefully you did too.
Would you even care if I said I’m sorry?
But would you love me less?
Oh, I know you won’t love me less!
So I’ll sing a song for my lover,
So I’ll sing a song to my God
And I don’t give a care who’s listening
as long as I’m singing to my Lord!
Track Name: Run Through That Red Light And I'll Make Note To Teach You Better Next Time
That snake in the grass that I once worshipped,
he took me down, he brought me down after my father died.
You see, he was a hero of war, but the commander’s letter says “He’s No More.”
What is a child without their father?
I’m scared for my momma’ that the police
will come take her away because, she became a drunk.
She buried her sadness at the bottom of a bottle.
She’s all I got left.
Don’t take her away, she all I got left.
Oh, God.
Please tell me I’m not broken like I say I am.
Please tell me I can get through this.
Oh Lord, Take me by the hand.
Happy Marriages, that’s how they all begin,
but lately my parents have been fighting over themselves.
No peace in this house tonight.
A week later, my parents file for a divorce
and none of them want me because
I remind them of each other.
Now I’m stuck in this foster home
until someone opens up their heart to love me.
Will anyone love me?
Will anyone love me God?
Please tell me I’m not broken like I say I am.
Please tell me I can get through this.
Oh Lord, Take me by the hand.
Lord, oh Lord, raise me up past the field of shadows.
Lord, oh Lord, raise me up past the valley of gallows.
Hallelujah! You raise me up!
Hallelujah! You raise me up an you tell me God,
You tell me that I’m not broken like I say I am.
You tell me I can get through this.
Oh Lord, Take me by the hand.
I say “Hold on to me God.”
He Say “I promise I won’t let you go.”
You teach me better when I run through those red lights.
Hallelujah! You raise me up.
Track Name: Something Beautiful... Fall Upon Me
My God, how I long yet to see your glorious face.
Oh God, how I yet to touch your wounds that
save me from my transgressions.
And it’s because of you; I know why I was made.
I’m living for you.
I won’t stand down,
No I won’t stand down until my
feet lift from the trumpet sound,
the sound of your return.
I won’t back down,
No I won’t back down until my body
gets buried in the ground.
Something Beautiful, Fall Upon Me.
My God, I swear that my calling
could cost me my life.
But through broken and bloody bones
that were broken for you,
I’ll die a happy man,
for I know these broken bones
were broken for you.
FALL UPON ME
I won’t stand down,
No I won’t stand down until my
feet lift from the trumpet sound,
the sound of your return.
I won’t back down,
No I won’t back down until my body
gets buried in the ground.
Something Beautiful, Fall Upon Me.
Track Name: Revolutionaries (Part II)
As the Martyr’s blood quenches the fire,
the smile he once shared with his oppressor, sinks in deeply.
He prayed for this.
Our oppressor begins to question,
“What made the martyr hold on to his conviction,
his belief that drove him to the dawn of his death?”
He is captivated.
“What happiness brings a love like this?”
Our oppressor reads the scriptures that are outlawed
just to calm his sense of curiousness.
He finds God in his heart, he is new again.
He is caught reading the words,
the words the martyr brought to
express his conviction, his belief.
Our oppressor is now a believer:
The working of the modern day Revolutionary.
“If I were you, I’d run as fast as I can.”
There he goes, he running like a wild man.
There he goes, he running like an outlaw can.
“Yeah boy, you know them’ dogs are after you.
Run fast, the dogs have gotten your scent!
Run to the border, try out run the dogs!
Run to the border, you’ll find safety there.”
Our believer is safe,
His oppressors can’t hurt him now.
“What now?” Does he say.
“Look for me my son, I’m always here,”
The voice of God spoke to him, and he said,
“Arise my son, search for what you’re fighting for…”
