Act of Depression Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Zyklus
1. Heart of Stone (5:49)
All the blood in their souls pour out, look for something in the dark
Blinded they find nothing another lust given in, another trust shut within
Listen to him speak so holy, father God, I''''m saved
That''''s fall that matters let the rest burn in hell
Preach false, a sin is a sin, doesn''''t give you the right to condemn then to hell
they know their wrongs you don''''t have to tell them their faults
Once you were a sinner how would you like it if someone laughed at you because of your wrongs?
I''''m not here to accept their sings but I''''m here to show them love within
Listen to him speak so holy, Father God I''''m saved
That''''s all that really matters let the rest burn in hell.
No Matter how hard you try you can''''t convince me that you represent Christ
No more, I''''m fed up with this... you''''ve already killed too many souls
It''''s time you wake up and see the truth Christian, I stand no afraid of my beliefs
Learn to love your enemies, to open their eyes you must be willing to die
Look at your own wrongs before you look at someone else''''s
You want to save souls or put souls to death
Giving our savior a bad name, giving me a bad name
You''''re so wrong with your beliefs, sit in church every week, but never do you help the weak
This is time to take back what''''s ours, not to give the world what''''s ours
Don''''t you want to see everyone saved or just yourself with a river of bloodon your hands?
2. A Love so Pure (10:39)
Always did it on my own then one day I realized
I was blind,, nothing I could do on my own
Turn, we have found a way to see, look up... feel the Almighty
Take control as we gaze into your eyes
We''''re just the tool you use to bring this world to you
Oh, Lord, how we love you
With your grace, take away the hurt and the bruises inside,
reach down let your glory reside
The cross carried for all of us, paint the image in my mind
So I will never think I am something,
but nothing am I but you, you are something
Lord you keep me alive, you give me rest at night
When there seems no way to find calmness in the storm you come and
take me in your arms and then the waves drown me no more
With you I''''ll last this battle and many others
Through the ages your name will reigh forever... never to be replaced
In these trials I face, I pray you humble me
Humble me I want to be like you Jesus more and more like you
I was crucified on that day with Christ
Nailing you there with sin, accepting you
I nailed my soul to the cross and now my life begins
This world so cold but your love keeps me warm
My father holds me in his nailed scarred hands which I put there
But for some reason he still loves me with all his heart
Even through I betray him constantly
He always keeps his arms open waiting, till I give up my old was
God my father, you are the only one that can give me comfort
You touch my heart in such a way that all I can do is cry your name
Jesus Christ I love you
My heart aches for your love
3. Burden in Your Hands (6:27)
Confusing and scared there is a decision made with this choice a child hasto pay
She puts it''''s life in her hands, and then she destroys it''''s only chance to become someone in life
You should of thought aboutthe baby before you had sex, because you have destroyed a gift from God
You kill, you destroyed
Never will this baby be able to grow up or show it''''s love
You''''ll never hear it say I love you, I love you
God does not give you the privilege to carry a child for nothing
When you kill, you destroy that child''''s dreams and hopes
How innocent a baby is... how can you put it to death?
What if you were aborted... you could of never had life
And now you make a choice to take this child''''s life becayse it is a burden in you hands
A burden in your hands
Destroyed out of convenience
They put an end to you life because you''''re too big a burden and one that they can not have
So they take your life before your first breath
When will it stop, the killings continue
Babies die everyday because of a pro choice made
Helpless and innocent they are putto death
Then why did the parents choose to plant a seed and then destroy it?
Pray for the people who are killing the kids of tomorrow
How desperately they need Jesus Christ in there hearts
So they take your life because your a burden in their hands
Destroyed our of convenience
They put a end to you life because you''''re too big a burden and one that they can not have
So they take your life before your first breath,
so they take your life brfore your first breath
4. Innocence Stolen (6:34)
Her body twitches, unbearable pain
Lord bring me out of this, why doesn''''t he stop, love does not exist
Her insides feel like an unbearable hell
Confusion runs through her mind
She prays so loud, she cries from the inside
why, why, why, why, how could someone do this to me?
He has taken this gift from her, fright in her eyes,
he doesn''''t even flinch, persistence on his face
Her body lay helpless as the shock kicks in
Thoughts of death only enter in
Why was I raped? Why did he do this to me,
I thought he loved me, but now my inside bleed
Scared for life, I face this world
Only the Lord helps me make it through each day
How can you look in a girl''''s eye and use her body for your own please?
This one''''s for the child molesters, this one''''s for the people who rape!
My God powerful will burn your bridged down!
Planned attack on your soul to defeat the evil and make you whole
If no change, then hell your fate
When you rape you take the most important thing in a young girls life
Those who have been raped: you are in my prayers... God hears your cries
5. Act of Depression (10:23)
("All I ever wanted was someone to love me")
I tried to cry out from the inside, but I guess my soul did not pour itself out enough
Blood on the walls, flaming black, blood on the walls,
I saw you staring through the cracks
No one was to know what was happening in me I felt no love,
I felt no reason to carry on with my life
Everything was wrong, nothing was right, at least that is what I thought
Kids finding laughter at my expense
They were killing me on the inside they couldn''''t give up their pride
My heart was bleeding from so much grieving
On the outside I looked fine, you couldn''''t tell but on the inside was eternal hell
I got caught up in the moment of depression,
And before I knew it my bodywas lying on the ground
With a gun in my hand my hourglass was out of sand
Thanks to all the people who drove me to death
Without you I could of never ended my breath
Through your anger and hate, I was able to choose my fate
There was a way out, but I chose the easy route
Blast of a gun, breath runs out, final thoughts put to extinction
"No more love, no more pain," for you have chosen suicide as the way out...
Help them
Ice cold fingers, body lays on the floor,
Pool of blood you see, you scream out in terror
Her body is now a part of mutilation, her soul the victim of strangulation
I will not accept this evil anymore
I never thought of who I hurt or I never tried to look for the good
I''''m sorry for whoever I hurt, it''''s not easy to look back on my life,
And know I did not know Christ
For now I live in a real hell
I wish I had another chance... then I would live my life with love
6. Watch Me Die (6:56)
I lay as this sacrifice to this unholy altar
The evil inside Satan; Satan sit and watch me die
Demented screams, tortured beings, where''''s your hope,
where''''s your smile, there was none
Life of lies gone, gone no more
So upset, so distraught, I''''m sorry, I''''m Sorry... I live for the Lord
Watch me die no longer I am alive
My purpose no more... I live for Christ
Dead to sin, only begin, imagine what''''s for Soldier of Christ
Changed with a new beginning, blood of the lamb, white washed sins
Forgive me God for all of these years of my transgressions
I cry renewed, I cry renewed This world means nothing to me
My life changed I now see Crucified with Christ,
the old self left with the rest of this world, rest of this world
Kneel before his throne, home now from this journey
I see my father in his arms finally found
This path I have chosen is hard but I''''ll make it with my saviors help
I survive this hell till the end I''''ll stand true
Eternal life, ready for the fight that the evil brings
No giving in... I''''m free
The fire burns engulfing all the victims in it''''s path, no where to run
Over taken they give in to surrender to the Lord once, and for all
No longer keeping quiet, no longer standing still,
no longer giving in, no longer going back
I stand strong praying for love always to be in my heart
7. Spirit of a Living God (9:07)
I wait for my true love, but she never came
I cry for my true love, but she never came
I leave this world never knowing who she was, departing all alone..

I''''d just like to speak for a second and say that, um.. I just encourage everybody who hears this album to look towards Christ and not towards people, because people allow you to fall away, people aren''''t perfect. Theres only one person thats perfect and thats Christ. And I see people every day who are looking at Christ and blow Christ off because something that someone else has failed on. And its just not worth it, Christ has blessed me and every other member of this band more than any other way that I can imagine, or be spoken. Just the way everything worked out tonight was just beautiful. I just pray for each and every one of you, we wouldn''''t sit here and we wouldn''''t do this unless we wouldn''''t put the time into it unless it was trying to touch you, trying to reach your life and I just ask please just give your heart to Christ, and allow him to come in and just accept him. It says, “If you acknowledge that you have sinned and you ask Christ to come into you life, he will enter you life just believe that he''''s died on the cross for your and risen on the third day, and Christ can life for you and he with you? and I just pray that you just give him that chance to do that, you don''''t know what you missed, you don''''t know what you missed until you haven''''t had something and realize that its gone, then you realize what you''''ve missed and what hasn''''t been in your life. And I just ask you please just give the LORD a chance to do that and I just hear a lot of people say that its just, I hear a lot of people say that its just you know, “Oh? you know, “this some religious person is trying to force this down my throat. Oh? well thats not our intent our intent''''s not to force this down your throat. We do this because we love you and we care for the people that do hear this. And I just wish everybody just to look towards it and give it a chance, and not fall out. There is hope, you can find it, and Christ is hope and your never gunna feel a void, your never gunna feel that huge gap and that void in your life until you turn and you look at the truth, even though you may not see it as the truth, I just pray that God will reveal himself to you and you can open your eyes, just as we were in your same shoes and he opened ours, he opened our eyes eyes.. just... even though it''''s this late you can''''t even speak, I just pray that He''''ll please just show you his power. This album goes out to just, the victims of rape and suicide, child molestation, people who are broken hearted, people who just cant handle life anymore and just have to fall on their knees every night and cry. There is a better way, and we have found it, please don''''t give up, there is a better way.
