Track Name: Soundtrack to a Revolution
Battle hymns are being sung
The War is almost won
Civil war within my flesh and bones
The promise of spilled blood
We will not be defeated
We'll stand up next to you
Signaled by the change of gaurd
A declaration of the truth

Its our revolution
Its our time to shine
United we stand strong
Together we fight

This battle that we face
The ground we compromise
No more will I be pushed around
Distracted by the lies
The chains have been broken
Liberation has been granted
We raise our flag to signify
We Stand on Holy ground

I pledge alligence to my God
Creator of all things
And I lift my hands up to the sky
Reilizing what that means
Look around at all of those
Doing the same thing
Here we stand with the great I Am
Let true freedom ring

One enormous army
Singing with one voice
We lift our anthem high enough
To give everyone the choice
Will you live your last days
Like you're already dead?
Or will you sing the praise
Of God and saints
Let me hear you say Amen!
Track Name: Call to Arms
No longer will I just sit back as this world's slowly dying
I'm not done having fun, i'm no good at goodbye
today's the day we can't delay, we fight to save those that hate
the time is right, we can't deny the voice inside to rise above

This is a call to arms, prepare for war
This is a battle charge, prepare for war
We'll still hold the fort, prepare for war
This is a call to arms

No one is safe, their all asleep and the darkness creeps in
No longer will I be the one that this world marks for failure
Today's the day we can't delay, we fight to save those that hate
The time is right, we can't deny the voice inside to rise above

This is a call to arms, prepare for war
This is a battle charge, prepare for war
We'll still hold the fort, prepare for war
This is a call to arms
This is a call to arms
Track Name: Testimony
As I stand here today
Living proof of your testimony
Your truth, Your life and Your way
I feel inspired by You every day

Because you are God. The Great I AM
You help me be a better man
You light my fire, You’re here with me
You pick me up when I am weak
By the work of your hands
In everything I see
The Great I AM The King of Kings,

Oh Lord my God, please hear me now
Singing every word coming from my mouth
I lift Your name, I crave your grace
I stand in awe, accept my praise,

As I stand here today
Living proof of your testimony
Of your forgiveness and grace
You’ve helped me through my share of mistakes
By the work of your hands
In everything I see
The Great I AM The King of Kings,

You quench my thirst, You pick me up when I am weak,
You’re here with me,
You live in me, a light to see Your love is the strength I need
Track Name: Another Sleepless Night
I don't think I'm gonna sleep tonight
I don't think its gonna be alright
I just wish this world would spin
A little slower now and then

No more punching in and out
No more questions. I can do without
All the frustrations of life that come with growing up
When will I grow up?

This world is eating me alive
If I can make it through tonight
Please God, let me see that sunrise

I've lost a step and I'm slowing down
I feel my best when I'm laying down
My body aches from everything
When did I make that choice?

I'm reaching for my medication
Relaxation through meditation
These are things I never thought I'd be doing in my age
That I never thought about

This world is eating me alive
If I can make it through tonight
Please God, let me see that sunrise

Dear Lord I ask of you
Part the clouds, let the sun shine through

Now I see the world differently
You cannot change it single-handedly
I have to have your strength my God
To keep focused on the task

You've gotta draw the line
Know where its at
Make sure you never look back
Track Name: God Almighty
Well I know its hard to think and its hard to believe
That we’re back from the dead and we’re back on the scene once again
Yeah, back from the dead

We’re out of the shadows and we’re back on the street
Getting ready to march to our planned destiny
Yeah, Our Destiny

Its the road less traveled but it goes by to last
Father give us your blessing let us make and impact
Yeah, your words last

God Almighty be with us
God Almighty in you we trust
May all the saints and angels be with us
As we press on through our existence

Life is so much tougher than I thought it would be
I need Your strength and wisdom God, You gotta help me
Yeah, please help me

Yeah life is a struggle its an all out war
I lay my burdens at Your feet Christ, you are Lord
Yeah, my Savior
Track Name: Seeing Voices
Power surges through my veins
Like a lightening bolt through a metal chain
My eyes glow white like bright headlights
My fingertips crackle like sparks in the night
I feel the chills on the back of my neck
My hearts about to jump out of my chest
My eyes overflow with tears of joy
And my body goes limp like a child’s toy.

My body’s engulfed by flames
My clothes burn off but I feel no pain
I ignite like a stick of dynamite
I know the blast is coming but I feel alright
Everything that I see is a blur
And all I hear are the most soothing words
My heart has been cleaned purified by flames
And I know I’ll never be the same

That voice I heard
Was like a light house in the storm
Drawing me close
steering me from harm
And now I see what once was blind to me
I have been chosen for this destiny

Power surges through my veins
Like a lightening bolt through a metal chain
My eyes glow white like bright headlights
My fingertips crackle like sparks in the night
And as I lay on the ground in disbelief
Trying to comprehend what happened to me
If I told you what you wouldn’t believe
That an angel just whispered to me.
Track Name: Chosen Few
This thing that is eating their lives away
They know what’s coming but they don’t know what to do
No need to panic ‘cause they know where they’re going
No need to cry Lord they’re coming home to You
With this evil comes tremendous wisdom
You see life for what it is and what it’s not
They gave hope to all that met them
They gave me hope when I was with them

When I close my eyes I feel like I am flying
You hold my heart You hold my soul
I look up to You as I rocket towards the great beyond
and I always knew that it was You

The tubes pour out of their bodies
Like some crazy road map of their lives
Pumped full of more harm than good
It drains every last drop of their life
The is evil is a catch 22 it kills a soldier
But witnesses to groups darn and butch were the chosen few
They took their hits and gave glory back to You
Track Name: Better Half
We all know one and one makes two
But I am nothing without you
You’re my everything
You’re my everything

I’m quick to anger and you’re slow to speak
My temper rages and you turn your cheek
Everyday I pray
to be more like you

I’m so glad you’re my better half
The silver lining to my whole mess
I’m so glad you’re my better half
I’d be doomed

I hold grudges and you pass our smiles
You give me the look when I get wild
What would I do
Baby, without you

You’ve softened me up I’ll admit to that
My heart beats fast when I hold your hand
Everyday I see
What you mean to me
Track Name: The Shootout
Kid Rock, Slim Shady and those wicked clowns
Are the ones bringing hits with the Detroit sound
But when you dig deep enough hit the underground
You see some other brothers rocking, tearing up this town
We may not be one ones on the magazines
We don’t get recognized by fanatic teens
We’re the ones in the shadows creep up on you all
But when we drop you stop and realize it’s on

Cause we’re coming out shooting like Billy the Kid
In a blaze of glory, cast our cares to the wind
We got a method to our madness and it ain’t just ska
We bring the motor city thunder and a dash of rock
We’ve been creeping for a while and we thought it was time
To come out of the woodwork and let the light shine
Once again we’re ablaze with the truth and hope
And when we finish here I guarantee you’ll know

So get up, let’s make some noise
Come on, All you girls and boys
We’ll roll on, to the break of dawn
With everybody in the party just singing along

We stroll down the street as if nothing’s amiss
Surrounded by the walking dead and their eyes that shift
Packing heat within our hearts and minds to kill
Even demons run away cause they know God’s will
And the guys he’s called hired guns you could say
Stand before you now up on this stage
We’ve got a bone to pick and a debt to pay
So let’s fire it up, we’ve got a world to save
Track Name: Shame on Me
When will I realize
This revolution is more than just these songs
I feel so two faced I feel so disgraced
If I could only be what I sing about

Same on me. How dare I
Hide behind this microphone, and straight up lie
Shame on me. Please forgive me
This insurrection will stat with me

I won’t be a memory
A songwriter that sings of fantasy
I’ll give it all back every last track
The band, the fans if I can make an impact

Same on me. How dare I
Be the one that sits while everybody else still fights
Same on me, Please forgive me
This revolution will start with me.

Same on me. How dare I
Keep this truth hidden deep inside of me
Same on me, Please forgive me
I want to be the one that starts this mutiny

Same on me for not seeing
That I was like the blind leading the blind
Shame on me please forgive me
I pray this mission can still use me

As I lay here
Tasting my own tears
Give me strength to finish what I started
