Intro Now I lay me down to sleep Drowning in monotony Gone too far and in too deep I need you to save me Verse 1 Deadman walking fast asleep Blind to my impurities Promises I never keep Can you please forgive me Now you wake me from my sleep Trust in you my soul to keep Open up my eyes to see Your love is amazing Chorus Isn't it Amazing Isn't it Amazing Your love's so Amazing Isn't it Amazing Verse2 Deadman risen from the deep Clothed in new identity Breathe your spirit into me Make me like a baby Turn me from iniquity Turn me now to follow thee Train my hands for victory Look at how you've changed me Verse3 **It's true ya'll I'm gone be singin' some Hallelujah's **New songs Raisin' my praises up to the true one **It's You Lord This forever what I will do I'm consecrated, committed, and dedicated to you, Yah Chorus Isn't it Amazing Isn't it Amazing Your love's so Amazing Isn't it Amazing Verse 4 Now that we know him a little bit better Ya'll We need to chase him a little bit harder ya'll We need to pray for a little bit longer now We need to praise him a little bit louder now x2 Verse5 Bear my burden, share my grief Shed your blood to wash me clean Gave your life on Calvary Long before you made me Chorus Isn't it Amazing Isn't it Amazing Your love's so Amazing Isn't it Amazing x2

Verse 1 They laughed at the thought they would ever bow down to the ones who were made from the dust of the ground. Much farther down than the ones who were rulers in Heaven. They were made from the fire and passion to burn with their love for the Mighty Creator of Earth, but their reasoning swayed when the fire began to deceive them. Was their journey worth the loss of glory they'd behold had they stayed beside the throne? Verse 2 They departed form Heaven, abandoning Grace, to be one with the arms of a mortal embrace, beginning a culture of worship we still subscribe to. In the secrets of reading the stars, of roots, of seduction, and bearing of arms, along with intentions to distance the one we would turn to, were their lessons innocent professions or intentional progressions all along? Chorus Their lives were ended the moment that they landed. Rejected by the hand of all they loved, they have turned their wrath on us. Their lives were ended the moment that they landed. The momentary passion's consequence in the minds of "never-ending". Verse 3 With their passions arousing their worlds would collide. The Daughters of Man would have nothing to hide: The power of angels bestowed to the son she would bear him. But, depravity grows in the mind of a god as restraining him proves and impossible job. His hunger would grow and his judgment would drown in the blood of his foes as it pours from his mouth. Sinful nature, born a soulless creature, they've become the abominable ones. Chorus Their lives were ended the moment that they landed. Rejected by the hand of all they loved, they have turned their wrath on us. Their lives were ended the moment that they landed. The momentary passion's consequence in the minds of "never-ending". Verse 4 Refused into Heaven, returned to the dirt, unable to eat of the fruit of the Earth, they would grow in their envy and learn to despise the Elect of the mortals and Children of Light. They could leave from the ground to the depths of Sheol, they could learn how to torture the depths of a soul, or be worshiped as gods in the place of the Mighty Creator. Chorus Their lives were ended the moment that they landed. Rejected by the hand of all they loved, they have turned their wrath on us. Their lives were ended the moment that they landed. The momentary passion's consequence in the minds of "never-ending".

[Demons] We Are the things that you see inside We are the reason you run and hide We are the things that you see in the night, in your dreams when you scream and you wake up We never sleep We never breathe You cut us up but We never bleed [Warrior] I tried to run away I tried with all my might *but the creature remains I had to stay and fight *the blood was shed I called the name of Christ *now the creature is dead [Saints] We are the Knights We are the bride We are the one who'll stand together We live for the fight We never die We are the one's who'll live forever

(Verse 1) So this is the End The world is all over There's nowhere to stand but the words are still here You thought that all was lost thought you were dead and gone you're put back on your feet by the hand of Almighty God if this is what He does if this is really Love then there's a meaning behind the battle we're speaking of (chorus) This is the way we start tomorrow This is how we fight the sorrow This is how we face the day Through the power of YHWH This is the Name we praise forever This is why we stay together This will never fade away The Splendor of YHWH (Verse 3) So this is the end we found the horizon We're here in his hands and the path is made clear His Wisdom will be shown His perfect Will be known and every step we choose to follow him we start to grow and as it starts to show for all the world to know May He be honored in the things we do forever more (Verse 4) So this is the end Our lives are laid down here by the Blood of the Lamb our debts have been cleared Salvation will be found and oh, "How sweet the sound" to know that we get to enter into the House of God And as we all kneel down We'll offer up our crowns and give him honor and raises unto His name renowned

about

The album "Awakening" is in part a musical bio of me (and people like me who are) coming to the realization that Christ is essential to life. The Album starts off with a declaration of the current state of the world, followed by a song that is both a limerick and a lament. It is a "coming to life" anthem. The album then takes a detour into a fantastic realm of action and drama, merged with spiritual statements about the warriors (the church) and their enemies (spirits of old) clashing throughout time. After the fight, one warrior shares his personal struggles with depression and offers his spiritual walk with God as the only hope he has. The album finishes with two songs that collectively show how emptiness can drive you to the cross, and that God is willing to forgive.

Awakening is designed to be a thought provoking experience. It is intended to show a perspective of the world we live in that enlightens one to the need for repentance. Repentance comes as a gift from God, but when we loose sight of what we're turning away from, we may never fully understand our brokenness, confusion, and basic need to wake up from our state of spiritual slumber. Christ offers awakening. Will you accept?
