Dark Lyrics


1. Beaten Beyond

Beaten beyond recognition
a mutilation extreme
the sacrificial lamb prepared for slaughter
God in the form of man, holy and supreme

Chief priest plot to kill based on blasphemy
innocent blood, betrayed and denied
case built on envy

Not a word spoken in defense
witnesses no longer needed
symbolic washing of the hands
the crowds violent hatred feeded

Fulfillment of the prediction
acknowledgement counted among the wicked
the onslaught of agony
despisement shown in a bloodied frenzy

Arrival of the execution
excruciating pain entwined with suffocation
testimony of humiliations punishing demands
pouring fourth the innocent blood of the Nazarene

Mourning over the body, awaiting anointing
darkness reveling, a sorrowful doom
lamented weeping concluded at the skull
covenant shed, forgiveness of sins

2. Eternal Life

That which is born of flesh is flesh
that which is born of spirit is spirit
A man cannot see the kingdom of God
unless he is born of the spirit
that's why the followers of Christ
are called born again

Grow in grace and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Savior (Jesus Christ)
to Him be glory both now and forever
talk to Him daily and study His word
so that your spirit may grow

I will rejoice in the Lord
My soul shall be joyful in my God
for He has clothed me
with the garments of salvation
and has covered me with the robe of righteousness

For true Christians are the light of the world
Blessed are they who are persecuted for it
because theirs is the kingdom of Heaven
let your light so shine that men
may see what you have done
and glorify your Father which is in Heaven

Whoever hears the sayings of Jesus and does them
will be likened to a wise man who built his
house upon a rock. And the rain descended
and the floods came and the wind blew
and beat upon the house and it fell not.
Because it was founded upon a rock.

And whoever hears the sayings of Christ
and does not do them shall be likened
unto a man who built his house upon the sand
and the storms descended upon the house
and it fell and great was it's fall

Open your eyes to a relationship with Christ
continually seek His word
become a true disciple
a child of God
then you shall know the truth
the truth shall set you free

Don't put your trust in the riches of this world
trust in the Living God who gives
us all things to enjoy
that you'll be rich in good works, spiritual treasure
Benevolence, generosity

By the mercies of God
present your bodies
a living sacrifice
Holy, acceptable unto God
though Christ is absent in the flesh
He is with us in the spirit
receive Him in your heart
and walk in faith

So let us fight the good fight
and run the race before us
lay aside every weight and sin
that so easily stops us

whoever is born in God
will have the victory
to know the one true God, Jesus Christ
this is eternal life

3. Deepest Affliction (Psalm 88)

O Lord my God, I cry out in affliction
let my prayer come before you
with troubles, the soul is surfeited
life draws near to the nether world

Weeping and Gnashing
excruciating infliction
never ending convulsion
pain tearing apart

Dwelling places among the dead
like the slain who lie in the grave
whom are remembered no longer
and are cut off from your care

Eyes have grown dim through affliction
outward the stretching of limbs
increase of lamentations
outcry, catharsis of prayer

Sorrow filled realms call in mourning
existing chorus of pleas
only a companion of darkness
atonement claims, replacing grief

Among those who have departed
shadows arise to give you thanks
justice shed within oblivion
declared kindness in the grave

Eyes have grown dim through affliction
outward the stretching of limbs
increase of lamentations
outcry, catharsis of prayer

4. Dissection

In the kingdom of the cults
false prophets abound
willfully ignoring
where the truth may be found
outwardly they're cloaked
in the attire of a sheep
but sincere intentions
won't hinder what they'll reap

Dissection of the cultic corpse
extraction of the lies
preparation for burial
the malignancy must die

fulfillment of prophetic visions
false teachings shall arise
to satisfy their itching ears
men believe the Hell-spawned lies
by altering the scriptures
divine truths are nullified
to the point of tears Paul warned us
those worst fears are now realized

How many will be infected
in this plague of compromise
with the constant call for unity
Satan's found his best disguise
all teachings and doctrines
must be put to the test
divine scripture is the standard
upholding truth must be our quest

5. Putrid Condemnation

Condemnation seeping, loathing this Perilous way
sewers of compromise, I now open my eyes to the truth

You rotten filthy stinking piece of dung
I can't wait to see you die
into the eternal flames you will walk
I love to hate the father of lies

Oblivious subversion poisoning
numb to the silent repercussions
realizing the control of blinding darkness
exacerbated ways seal your destruction

Time draws near for your demise
My hate for you so intense
no one will mourn when all life is taken
from you scum, the father of lies

An end to your sovereignty
severed from all existence
extraction of authority
fallen again to final defeat

6. All Authority

It may surprise the majority
but many attempts in resolving
the spiritual and meaning of life
are lost within the shadows

Craving of esoteric knowledge
grisly evidence of aberrations
unlocking unthinkable atrocities
you now must pay with your life

All authority given
not an equal but a vanquished foe
Dunameos energeian kratous kai ischous
power working strength and might

Renounce the involvement
encounter the demoniac standing firm
having girded your loins with truth
from the threshold of your mind

testing of the spirits which indwell
discernment unfolds the reality of truth
becoming subject to Christ they leave
overwhelmed by His supremacy

Elements of protection
speaking God's word
if there is any excellence , anything worthy of praise
let your mind dwell on these things

7. Blood Letting

You say you come to me
because of the blood I shed
but deep down inside it was
of circumstances instead

Because of this bleeding you let
this hopeless cadaver of flesh
you would not forget
redeemed, purified while justified

Blood is the only covering to atone
your life link found in His blood
not from circumstances along
from death freedom gained eternally

there is no answer to this cancer
and smell of rotting flesh
only pure blood will heal the wounds
and embalms Christ within

The Prince of Peace given in carnage butchery
bloodstained and broken for you
let Him spill that precious flow
all over to make us whole

8. My Salvation

The Lord is my strength and my song
He has become my salvation
He is my God and I will praise Him
My father's God and I will exalt him

May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight o Lord
My rock and my redeemer

The Lord is my light and my salvation
whom shall I fear
the Lord is the stronghold of my life
of whom shall I be afraid
into your hands I commit my spirit
redeem me o Lord God of truth
the Lord redeems His servants
No one will be condemned who takes refuge in Him

My soul finds rest in God alone
My salvation comes from Him
God wants for all to be saved
Today is the day of salvation

9. Suffering

A reaction to the lies, contradiction bred from inside
temptation reigns over the mortal
captive to the principle
prevented slaves of impurity

Carnal flesh in captivity
revered and worshiped the creature
abandoned to self indulgence
removed facade of conformity
defamation by presence.

Idolatry, impurity, outbursts of fury
jealousy, immorality, occasions of envy

Suffered affliction, self intervenes
through perseverance, death is obtained
follow the me, myself, and I
acts of selfishness, arise

Lustful discourse of action
Holy temple destruction
poverty gains on prosperity
obey cause of obedience
offered to sanctification
righteous spirit in unity
overcome human afflictions

Idolatry, impurity, outbursts of fury
jealousy, immorality, occasions of envy
resist temptations, Christ intervenes
through perseverance, life is obtained

10. I Ask

Lord forgive me for my sins
cleanse me of my unrighteousness
I worship and praise your holy name

I ask for strength to resist temptation
I ask for wisdom in all things
cover me with your blood, and fill me with your spirit
make me your disciple
I thank you for your love, your grace, and forgiveness
for who you are and what you've done
Jesus Christ
who loved us so much, you took the penalty for our sins

Lord help me to deny my flesh and keep my mind on you
take up my cross and follow behind you
I will be hated for your name's sake
but you will never leave me or forsake me
give me courage to face the things before me
and let my ears hear your voice
help me to understand your word
and read and pray daily

Crush the head of Satan
Glory be to Jesus Christ

11. 2nd Timothy 3

You must understand this
in the last days distressing times will come
men shall be lovers of their own selves
covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers
disobedient to parents
unthankful, unholy
Inhuman, false accusers, fierce, haters of good
traitors, heady, high-minded
lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God
having the outward form of Godliness
but denying the power thereof
Turn away from them for this sort
are they which creep into houses
and lead captive gullible women laden with sins
led away with diverse lusts
ever learning, and never able
to come to the knowledge of truth.
these also resist the truth
men of corrupt mind
reprobate concerning the faith
but they shall proceed no further
for their folly shall be manifest unto all men
and all that live in Christ Jesus
will suffer persecution
but evil men will go from
bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived
All scripture is given by inspiration of God
and is useful for teaching
For correction and for training in righteousness
so that everyone who belongs to God
may be proficient , equipped for every good work
I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ
I will suffer persecution rather than deny

12. Grave Of Rebirth

Narrative of the climax
brother of performed acts
illness afflicts Lazarus
remaining place of rest

Lazarus lies

Sickness of the undeath
glorified through wrath
awaken the received
performance to believe
master and disciples
past mortal arrival
placed into the Earth
promise of rebirth

Lazarus dies

Lack of presence questioned
disturbed in reaction
weeping instruction
removal tomb obstruction

Crying voice commands
from the grave ascend
bounding burial garments
return to life present

Lazarus rise

Theme of life dominates
Resurrection integrates
exchanging the deceased
life gained through belief

13. Psallo

I will praise you o Lord with all my heart
I will tell of all your wonders
I will be glad and rejoice in you
I will sing praise to your name O Most High

I will give thanks to the Lord
because of His righteousness
And will sing praises to the name
of the Lord Most High

The Lord reigns forever
He has established His throne for judgment
He will judge the world in righteousness
He will govern the peoples with justice

The Lord is my rock, my fortress
and my deliverer. My God is my rock
in whom shall I take refuge. He is my shield
and the Horn of my salvation
My stronghold.

14. Loud & Clear

[Stryper Cover]

[Verse 1]
The hair is long and the screams are loud and clear.
The clothes are tight, earrings dangling from the ears.
No matter how we look, we'll always praise His name.
And, if you believe, you've got to do the same.

Loud, clear, let the people hear.
Scream, shout, show what it's all about.
Loud, clear, let the people hear.
Scream, shout, show what it's all about.

[Verse 2]
Some of us were always pushed around in schools.
That's why I wrote this song to sing to pushin' fools.
At least we can say we love doin' what we do.
And we're here to say that you can have salvation too.
