Dark Lyrics


1. Lack Of Compassion

Jesus said they'll know Christians by our love
Do not judge or you will be judged
Holier than though, have you never sinned?
The Bible says all men have sinned and fallen short of
the glory of God.

Jesus came for the sinners, not the righteous
All men are sinners
He ate with sinners and had compassion for them
God poured our his love and the sinners turned and
followed Him

Holier than thou
Turning people off to God because of despisement
in your voice
Holier than thou
Pharisees and Sadducees
Holier than thou
show compassion for those who do not yet know Christ
Holier than thou
Love the sinner, hate the sin

If they were only shown the love of Jesus
and not your despisement and condemnation

For God so loved the world
That he gave his one and only Son
That whoever believes in Him
Shall not perish but have everlasting life
For God did not send his son into the world to condemn
the world
but to save the word through Him

Satan loves it when you make a mockery of God's love
Claiming to be a Christian but spitting venom and hate
The Bible says the world will hate Christians, because it
rejects Christ
Not because we acted like a bunch of jerks
Turn your self-righteousness into humility
Accept others with their faults as God accepted you
Who made you a judge, holier than thou
It makes me want to cry to see the harm you do

The sinner you see may have never before been shown love
Pain may be all they know, but Christ can heal their wounds
As ambassadors for Christ it's our job to lead them to Him

They should know we are Christians by our love
The Bible says they'll know we are Christians by our love!

2. Humbled (Luke 18: 10-14]

Satan knows your weaknesses, HE knows just how to tempt you,
You'll get hit at your weakest moment, Fall into sin again and again,
Then depression sets in, you feel so bad that you've fallen again,
You feel too ashamed to turn back to God, then you begin to turn away.

Resistance against Satan is not futile, the bible says
resist him and he'll flee from you.

Humble yourself before God and He'll life you up, Draw near
to Him and He'll draw near to you. Don't turn away from Jesus, He wants to heal your heart and make you whole. Confess your sins and repent, All Christians stumble
and make mistakes, Who can save us from our bodies of death, JESUS!

Never rationalize your sin, Never tell yourself it's not that bad,
Never justify your sin, finding reasons to say it's not your fault or that it's not wrong,
Mourn and wail against your sin, Bring it to God and He'll forgive you, Our spirits seek righteousness and God, our flesh is weak, they're in constant war.

Submission to God is the only way to defeat evil, Our Lord and Savior Jesus is the way.

There were some people who were confident of their own righteousness.
They looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable.
Two men went up to the temple to pray.
One a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself – "God I thank you that I am not like other men.
Robbers, evildoers, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.
I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get."
But the tax collector stood at a distance.
He would not even look up to Heaven, but beat his chest and said "God have mercy on me, a sinner."
I tell you the tax collector rather than the Pharisee went home justified before God...
For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

3. Sarcastic Deviation

Creeping into the chapter of you
The sin you welcome
Multiply strife
Increased death life extinction

Existence that endures
One must see it's scheme
All wrapped up in it's allure
Demise of yourself is foreseen

Desire that is unquenchable
Fulfillment sought from the natural
Settle for a cheap imitation
The heart cold and hardened

The continuation of a struggle
Freedom seems but a dream
Holding fast to the giver of life
Persistence because of His grace

Sarcastic deviation
wanting to call you it's own
Despising it's deception
Truth found in Him, the Cornerstone

4. Withered (John 15: 1-17)

I am the true vine
My Father is the gardener
He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit
He prunes the fruitful branch so it will be more fruitful

If anyone does not remain in Me, He's like a branch that's
thrown away and withers,
Thrown into the fire and burned

I am the vine, you are the branches
If a man remains in Me and I in him
He will bear much fruit
Apart from Christ you can do nothing

As the Father has loved me
So have I loved you
Now remain in My love

If you obey my commands
You will remain in My love
Just as I've obeyed my Father's commands
and remain in His love.

5. My Neighbor (Luke 10: 27-37)

On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus.
"Teacher," he asked, "What must I do to inherit eternal life?
"What is written in the law?" He replied.
"How do you read it?" He answered
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself."
"You have answered correctly." Jesus replied.
"Do this and you will live."
But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus "And who is my neighbor?"
In reply, Jesus said-
"A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers.
They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away leaving him half dead.
A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.
So too, a Levite, when he came to place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
But a Samaritan as he traveled came to where the man was, and when he saw him, he took pity on him.
He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine.
Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him.
The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper.
'Look after him,' he said.
'And when I return I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.'"

"Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?" Jesus asked.

The expert in law replied, "the one who had mercy on him."

Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise."

6. Narrow (Matthew 7:13)

Our cry is for freedom
for what feels good
Aren't there many paths to God
but none understood

Behold the glory and the radiance
All truth found in His word
It's an all or nothing thing
No man comes to God except through His Son

Your belief is archaic
It's all they cry
Again with no standards failing
So many try

A spirit of treason
Billions filled with delusions
Give back the truth
Renewed absolutes filling your minds

Behold the glory and the radiance
All truth found in His word
It's an all or nothing thing
No man comes to God except through His Son.

Through supplication
We prove you wrong
Clinging to abhorrent separation
it what we long

Don't be deceived by
decaying humanity
No one was meant to be lost
Christ died so all could received

Whether you agree or not
Truth stands alone.
Misguided doctrines of convenience
His ways are not our own

7. Eviscerate

The wrath of God is being revealed
From Heaven against all the Godlessness and wickedness of men
Darkened hearts worship the creation
Exchanging the truth for a lie

Suppressors of truth
are without excuse
Eviscerate, transgressive state

Modern man has both feet firmly planted in midair
He who is not with Christ is against Him
He who does not gather with Him scatters

WE have Christ, and anchor for the soul
Firm and secure
Come near to God, He will come near to you.

8. Meaningless (Ecclesiastes)

What is the life worth living?
Living life in the fear of God

Seeing wealth as the road to satisfaction
Our hopes are always disappointed
Living life in measureless frustration
Or living life in the fear of God

We must live life as humble true worshippers
If we are ever to enjoy living
As God intended us to live

Contentment is God's mandate for our lives
True contentment is an act of faith

9. The Word

Words of wisdom, words of life
God gave us His word to teach us his ways
Reading, and studying
A great passion of mine

The words are alive, they strengthen my spirit
They give me direction, they teach me God's will
Ancient scrolls
Just as relevant now to our modern life

Book of rules, regulations
Those who've rejected Christ think it's meant to oppress
But the freedom to my spirit
The words bring tears to my eyes

False doctrine creeps in at every chance
People misquote and take things out of context
You need to study for yourself what's written in the word
Study what's taught to you, and find out for yourself if it's true

Know the scriptures, know the word
Sermons are great, but they shouldn't be your only choice
And like I said, test the sermons
Find out for yourself if they're scripturally sound

But all the Bible study in the world
Is no good if it's not put into practice
Knowing to love others, but showing them hate
Makes your studying null and void

His Spirit residing within you
is what makes the word come alive in your life
He'll fill you with his fire and cover you with his blood
Ask Jesus to enter your heart, He'll give you all you need
His love is like no other, His forgiveness has no end

The choice is yours, He's given you free will
We have the ability to choose evil or good
It's a free gift He's offering you, please take it and become His child
His arms are open waiting for you

His living words contained in the Bible pertain to every
part of your life. It's not some outdated literature,
it's not behind the times
It's what's relevant then, it's relevant now
It's relevant to the future of humankind
Don't deprive yourself of the most important thing in life

10. Misguided Mercy

[John 8:58-59, John 10:30-32; Corinthians 1:18]

A picture's worth a thousand words
A word is worth a thousand hurts
Offensive teaching causes abject misery
The only cure is compassionate sorcery

Ears like a hairpin trigger
Indignation getting bigger
Can't control animosity
At another's perceived pomposity

Moving on is now allowed
Perpetrators are disavowed
They fail to tolerate all acts
Feeling they speak enlightened facts

Point of View of Christian:

But much offense is misguided
Too many things make them see red
To stand for nothing is to die
Allowing you to believe a lie

A new generation of Sodomites
Demand respect and certain rights
Offended and making a fuss
At hearing the bold words of Jesus

The Word was given to proclaim
Speaking it should not bring shame
Tolerance may seem right at first
But tolerating sin is worse

11. Finding

Merely living, not walking
True passion is what you long for
Higher focus on your problems
Deepened awareness to seek your face

Arranging life according to your taste
Preoccupation, selfish nature
Indulgence, conformist
Your demands, one in the same

Entertaining thoughts that lead to sin
Excesses claiming the mind
Turning to God to improve your life
All knowing ignorance buries you alive

Finding God in the midst of Hell
Growing in Christ, Spiritual
Peace sought in restoration
Resting in God is the solution

12. Masquerade Deceit

Endless deception claims death as obsession
Ill spoken lie justifies the oppression

Tempting corruption the minds that receive them
Resulting realms of chaos and mayhem

Constant decay destroys life that is living
Twisted remains breeding the lies you're giving

Truth leads to terror in mere minds deceived
Lies precede death for those who believe

Summoning Defeat
Masquerade Deceit

Outraged emotions wasting unjust repression
Freedoms abased in this worthless statement

Deceitful release south in morbid desire
Escaping of life to existence of fire

Absence of power corruption in violence
Commonplace evil ends hope of benevolence

Crossover minds to existence worth while
Preventing disgrace drains desire for the trial
