Track Name: I - The American Gospel Is A Lie
...oh, my God
...fill this place
...come, Thou fount

The American gospel is a lie
God has set a fire in our hearts
Now that the fire is here
Come burn with us
Track Name: II - Cages
What you've been taught in your cages
A God that is not so
This atrocious prosperity gospel
Claiming God to increase your cashflow
Your hearts are dark as evil
One day you'll know
as you stand before our Father
and reap what you've sewn
Track Name: III - Perspective
You see creation
I see a masterpiece
painted out across the canvas of eternity
You see a smile with harmful intent
I see a face who hasn't felt love yet
You see power-hungry people
sick and filled with greed
I see men and women
who are begging on their knees
Torn into pieces by a world of sinful seed
It's a matter of perspective

Unfulfilled, broken and drowning in doubt
We spend our lives rotting from the inside out
We try to please everyone who knocks us down
I won't become a wolf's floormat

You are more than this
We are more than this

I won't conform to a society
who claims we're only flesh and bone
Begging for significance and love
inside a lost and broken home
I can't ignore the fact
I know we're more than this
I am more than this
It's a matter of perspective

Don't be another victim of the world's lies
Track Name: IV - New Age
Is the approval of others
enough to warm your soul
because when I'm not myself
my soul grows cold

It's the dawn of a new age
beginning a chapter at the end
of a church-led failure
We built on selfish desires
with fake glory and fire when
we don't even know our own savior
Screaming prayers in chapels
but not in our homes
Putting leaders on pedestals
Exalting our egos
We'll stab our brother in the back
if it helps to build us up

So grab your nothing and hold it tight
Track Name: V - Hostage
I've traded my soil for gold
So hard to think for myself
No way to grow
No way to mold
I've become like everyone else

I call it my life
but I don't control it
I don't belong here

Severed from the life I've longed for
so many years
I don't belong here
Track Name: VI - Undertow
Lately, I've felt myself starting to slip
into this hole
with no way out of this abyss
My hands are shaking
My body growing numb
I'm holding to a life gone for so long

My nightmares and terrors
keep me awake
Growing stronger as the days pass by
This feeling never fades away

Keep me afloat
I keep slipping under

...because without You
there's no hope for me

I can see the end approaching
There's no hope for me without You
Track Name: VII - Fix Bayonets (feat. Nikk Goben of TONE)
...birth
...sweat
...loss
...death

The life between the lines
hides itself from my eyes
A fruitless, void existence
Born into my demise
To wake up and fall in
to these eternal thorns
is not what I was made
to live in; shame and scorn

Bitterness in walking down life's long broken road
only eased in knowing it can't get much worse
Track Name: VIII - Limb
How could you turn your back on them?
What you preach is fake and disgusting
Tearing down the ones we should love
with godless protests
You call this love but it's all hate
Pushing people further to Hell
How can you not see what you're doing?

Judgement flows from your blind eyes
Filling souls with nothing but lies
Do you really think Christ died
for just a handful of souls?

As I look to the body
I can't find your limb
