Extraction from Mortality Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. Unite (6:39)
Rise up, so you can take a stand against the schemes of evil
Courage, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power
Struggle, not for flesh and blood but against dark forces
Rulers and authorities of sin from the spiritual world
Attack, oppose the Prince of Death in the heavenly realms
Power from the armor, you must stand your ground

We will UNITE AS ONE
We'll stand and FIGHT AS ONE

Take up the potent shield of faith with which you can extinguish
Flaming arrows of the one who seeks to slay the chosen
Uphold the double edged sword which is the Living Word
Piercing unlike any other blade judging thoughts and actions

Weapons of divine power to destroy all strongholds
Fighting the good fight of faith intent on final conquest
Join us disciples of the light in this spiritual warfare
Take hold of eternal life saving souls from Hell
2. Vile Hypocrisy (5:35)
Obeying worthless idols
The prophets prophesied
Manifesting omens
Delusions of their minds
Claiming total wisdom
Knowledge from above
Ordained not from the Father
Ignorance of love

Woe to you o'teachers
Instructors of the law
You who play religion
Impelling men to fall
Legalistic actions
Neglecting man's distress
Outer shells of virtue
Inner wickedness

You blind the eyes that seek to see
Deceiving humanity
Denying God by deeds
Yet claiming intimacy

Drawing lambs to slaughter
Victims of deceit
Unaware they follow
Minds becoming weak
Vile hypocrisy
Method of defense
For rejection of Christ
Eternal consequence

Heed the written warnings
Of deceptive lies
Neglect deceitful guidance
Apostasy defy
There is nothing concealed
That won't be made known
Sifting inner motives
Judgement for what's shown
3. D.O.S. (Desolation of Sodom) (4:19)
All the men of Sodom
Sin had infested
Rampant wickedness
Perverse mortal race
Evil running loose
Misleading minds and souls
Vile unrestraint
Malignant disgrace

DESOLATION OF SODOM
The heavens poured forth fire
GOMORRAH'S DESTRUCTION
Repentance the Lord does require

Lifeless without breath
Wood and rock were hewn
Men did idolize
These pagan gods of stone
Heathens disobeyed
Defying God's commands
But Lot was undefiled
Mercy was his alone

Devastation of life
Brought by God's own might
Eternal punishment
For all with corrupt desires
God despises sin
For the blood shed on the cross
Refines us within
And spares eternal fire
4. Tormented (3:50)
When evil men advance to devour my flesh
When enemies attack, their will to oppress
When bloody wars break loose and armies draw near
In the day of distress my heart will not fear

PAIN, MENTAL torment
SAVED from DEATH

Trapped in mental pain, agony within
Life consumed by anguish, endurance wearing thin
Tormented by misery, struggling to stand
Growing weak with sorrow, my grief is in Your hands

Struck down but not destroyed, you lift me from the depths
You brought me from the grave, redemption from death
Hard pressed on every side but not in despair
Never on my own, Your presence everywhere
5. Shadow of Death (4:19)
Running scared
Fighting for your life
Swords are drawn
'Midst the battle strife
You feel your life slip away

Limbs grow numb
Your flesh starts to burn
Wounds grow deep
Slowly you discern
Your life blood will drain away

The sands of time
Drain from the hourglass
Your life thread
Fraying in your grasp
The gates of death draweth nigh

Morning dawns
The sun begins to rise
Blood and sweat
Cloud your weary eyes
Straining to view your cruel foe

Gripping fear
No one can be seen
Fighting air
Yet your wounds bleed real
You fight the Shadow of Death

Distant form, drawing into sight
A man draws near
With no armor for the fight
Death thrusts the sword in His sight

Hope has gone
Surely you must die
Suddenly
Through the blackened sky
He rises and conquers death

We must die
Our sins will bring us death
At the end of time
Jesus Christ
Death no longer reigns
Human sacrifice

We must die
Our sins will bring us death
At the end of time
Jesus Christ
Death no longer reigns
Human sacrifice
6. Blemished Sacrifices (3:54)
Living a lie, waiting to die
Drowning your soul in sin
Moral decay, you will pay
Injecting the venom within
Hiding your sorrows, running away
Destroying the Spirit's shrine
Wasting your life, unbearable strife
The drug infests your mind

Going nowhere
Living nightmare
Endless falling
He is calling

Ice cold, you sit in fear
Your body weakens inside
Lethal dose, invading you
You're running out of time
Blackest night closing in
Ripping you to the core
Suicide, the terminal lie
Yet eternal life can be yours

Evil defied, escape the lie
Misery freed within
Spirit control leading your soul
Victory from what has been
Gaining wisdom, growing in strength
Attainings dependence on Christ
Forgiven sins, life through Him
He was the sacrifice
7. Not Even One (3:33)
No one is righteous, not even one
There is no one who understands
The Anointed One of God they shun
NO ONE

All born of flesh have turned away
Worthless together they have become
No one does what is right, all disobey
NO ONE

Blood sacrifice
Faith had begun
No one must die
Not even one

Their throats are open graves
Their tongues practice deceit
Ruin and misery mark their ways
RUIN

The poison of vipers their lips outcry
Their feet are swift to shed blood
There is no fear of God before their eyes
NO FEAR

A righteousness from God has been made known
Through the faith one has in Jesus Christ
Believing that His shed blood will atone
OUR SINS

There is no difference for all have sinned
Falling short of the glory of the Lord
But redemption comes from Christ within
BELIEVE
8. Extraction from Mortality (6:070
What good would result for a man
By gaining the world but losing his soul?
Love not the world
Or the wrath of the Father you will behold

Do not conform to evil
The desires conceived in ignorance
Choosing to befriend the world
Brings hatred from God as a consequence

DEATH, SIN
Extraction From Mortality
WORDLY REJECTION
Deliverance from agony

Men would love you as their own
If you belonged to this earthly realm
Mankind hates the ones
Who do not conform but rebel!

DEATH, SIN
Extraction From Mortality
WORDLY REJECTION
Deliverance from agony

DEATH, SIN
Extraction From Mortality
WORDLY REJECTION
Deliverance from agony

Everyone born of God
Will not face eternal decay
Death they will overcome
The ways of man will pass away

Be transformed by renewing
The intentions and thoughts of your mind
Your life must be hidden in Christ
Leaving the corrupted flesh behind

DEATH, SIN
Extraction From Mortality
WORDLY REJECTION
Deliverance from agony

DEATH, SIN
Extraction From Mortality
WORDLY REJECTION
Deliverance from agony
9. Stress (3:01)
What's the use of worrying
What good does it do?
Will it add a single day
To your life?

PANIC - no more
WORRY - about what?
STRESSING - no need
When you HAVE THE LORD

Constant troubles of your mind
Past, present, future time
Problems building up inside
Leave it all behind

Rid yourself of needless tension
Lay your burdens on the Lord
He will give you strength you need
If you'll believe His Word
