1. The Red Horse Is upon Us (1:39)
Instrumental
2. A Portrait of Modern Greed (3:49)


This is all out war.
Born into this struggle.
We've become the things we hate.
No longer will we be the downtrodden - beggars at your gate.
To - all that we own we've been given - over as slaves we are the resistance.

What made you think that we would bend so easily?
(We're not like you)
We're not like you, my friend.
You're so weak.
(We're done with you)

Our entire lives we've been told we have to buy your lies.
But all that will gain us are things that we can't take with us when we die.
Your narrow perception, a weakened device.
Your veil of deception, now falls from our eyes.

What made you think that we would bend so easily?
(We're not like you)
We're not like you, my friend.
You're so weak.
What made you think that we would bend to suit your greed?
(We're done with you)

We are the – resistance.

What made you think that we would bend so easily?
(We're not like you)
We're not like you, my friend.
You're so weak.
What made you think that we'd ever be slaves to your greed?
(We're not like you)
You're so weak.
(We're done with you)

Your veil of deception, now falls from our eyes.
We'll never be your possession.
You'll never get out alive
3. Monuments (3:55)
All hail the shrine to the apex of self-absorption.
All hail the shrine, you worshippers of corruption.
You’re so impressed with yourself.
Self-centered and unaware.
You bask in your own decline.
Your stench pollutes the air.
You're a monument to yourself.

And the monuments you've made to yourself, will one day come crashing to the ground.
And the crowns you wear that you gave yourself so we would stare will one day fall around your neck as you draw your final breath.
You are your own demise.

Just look at what you've made us; greedy, bloated, shameless whores.
Integrity is sold so cheaply to feed the greedy and rob the poor.
All you kings will be made low, you would not see but you were shown.
Crashing to the ground.
All hail the shrine.
All hail the shrine.
All hail the shrine.
To the apex of self-absorption
4. Betrayed Redemption (4:28)
Beyond the source of this wretched decay.
Beyond the force of what pushes
away, underneath and behind...
Everything that you see.
Behind the walls so no one will see.
Behind the lights of this false gallery, inside my skin I bathe in the blood of innocence and self disgust...

Guilty.
I am Guilty.

The blood is on my hands the darkest stains of my own reflection.
I'm not strong enough to stand beneath the shame of betrayed redemption.

Doing what I despise never questioning why and I'm left so nauseated.
I looking with my own eyes and I don't recognize the man I was has been degraded.
Never questioning why...
And I'm nauseated, the spilling blood of the chosen one has bought my reconciliation...
Reconciled.
I am reconciled.
And as I come into this place my guilt is washed away.
And I'm purified anew...
Purified
5. Little Miss Letyouknow (4:21)
Dear little miss letyouknow.
You've taken advantage of my feelings for you for the last time.
I don't know what you want from me.
I'm not a dog you can put on a leash.
OH these are the last words you'll ever hear from me
You're just a ghost of what will never be.
You're just a ghost of what will never be.

You said you'd let me know... then you never said a word to me.
You said that I would be the first to know.
Then you took his hand and walked away and I was the first to go.
Don't you come lookin' for me 'cause I'm already gone.
I'm over this and over you and now I'm movin' on.

Do you want an apology for treating you with respect?
You're only lying to yourself and loneliness is all that you can expect.

So long...
I'm movin on.
When it comes to goodbyes I give the best around, but if you’re lookin' for a good time, ya best try a different town.
C'mon, so long miss letyouknow.
So long...
I'm movin on

7. Broken Man (4:30)
I am a pariah
The product of all the bad choices I've made
Even one such as I seeking redemption
Burn in my pride

See me now desperate for change
I've seen the writing on the wall
First came my pride then came the fall
Then came the fall

Here I am
Can you mend this broken man?
Here I am
Can you make me whole again?

See me now desperate for change
My heart betrays my mind
My flesh betrays us all
My heart betrays my mind
My flesh betrays us all

Here I am
Can you mend this broken man?
Here I am
Can you make me whole again?

As I fall on my knees with my face to the setting sun
Oh, God, have mercy on me

Here I am
Can you mend this broken man?
Here I am
Can you make me whole again?
8. Blood in the Water (5:19)
Take a look at yourself then tell me, is this going according to plan?
Chasing everything that never mattered, trying to catch the wind with your bare hands.
You bought a ticket on the wrong ship and it's all going down.

This ship is going down.
We're all gonna die.

Take a look around and tell me, can your money buy you all that you lack?
All alone and surrounded by strangers, you can't remember how to get back.

Is this life, everything you wanted?
Is it worth the price you pay?
You're treading on bloody water.
Is it worth the price you pay?

Take a look at where you are and tell me, is it everything you dreamed it'd be?
You're in a thousand miles of open water.
A thousand miles between you and me.

If I could reach you, you know I would.
I am right here waiting for you to make your move.
The blood is burning, the waters churning, it's time to sink or swim.

Here come the sharks...
9. Invictus (4:41)


Our wisdom is the raving of fools.
Our knowledge is partial and full of holes.
What can you offer me that I could never lose? This is my offering.
A sacrifice you must choose.

Die to yourself.
This sacrifice you must choose.
This sacrifice you must choose
This sacrifice you must choose.

I am called to stand and be counted among the victorious dead.
When self was laid aside, I became more than I had been.
And on the day I die, I rise to walk again.

I am called to stand and be counted among the victorious dead.
Crucified to the flesh I am bound in, I am the victorious dead.

Selflessness breeds fearlessness.
To face our lives, our death, or anything.
It's all the same.

I am called to stand and be counted among the victorious dead.
Crucified to the flesh I am bound in, I am the victorious dead.
10. (Seeing You Again) for the First Time (5:20)
The latest sun is sinking, as I stand and watch it fade alone.
Now my breath turns to vapor, and I feel a chill in my bones.
Your words have not fallen on deaf ears.
Your presence relieves me of my fears

(I am the Light in the darkness [x2]
The city on the hill, I am the Lion of Judah.
I can never be killed.
I am the First and the Last.
No beginning and no end.
I am the Father and Son, I am the three who are one.

My eyes are open for the first time
As I taste you in the air.
I can see you for the first time.
For the first time.

Now I stand in the doorway.
And I know I must walk through it alone.
I can hear angels singing.
And that melody is carrying me home.
Your name is honey on my lips.
Your words are the water of life that I sip (I am the Morning Star)
I am the Cornerstone.
I am the Great Physician.
Separating marrow from bone.
I am the King of Glory.
Who was and is and is to come
(I am the way. The truth. The life. Almighty Holy One)

I can see you for the first time.
My eyes are open for the first time.
11. Shepherds in Sheep's Clothing (3:18)
You hide behind the pretenses of the meek.
You've turned a nation of warriors into a herd of voiceless sheep.
Shepherds in sheep's clothing.
We should be more than conquerors, not a herd of frightened sheep.
I am disgusted by what I see we've become.
When greed outweighs the greater good, the end has just begun.
Righteous anger should consume us once again.
Every nation that has fallen, has fallen from within.
And when I look at where we started, then see where we are now, it makes me sick.
Righteous anger should consume us once again.
Every nation that has fallen, has fallen from within
