So here I am once again in the darkness of my heart
I'm searching for you, but the shadows keep me guessing
Of where you are,
Now I'm on my knees screaming in pain tears streaming down my face
I can only say one thing, Where are You?
And as I'm ready to give up and die
I see a light in the corner of my eye
Now I stand on my feet
Screaming your praises
Tears of joy stream down my face as I call out your name
Cause now I know you and now I know where You are
You're in my heart
So here I am once again in the light of my heart
My search for you is over
Now the shadows disappear from the radiance of your love
And the devil appears bringing along my sin
But with a grin I turn my head
And he curses Your name
For taking me away
But I turn and run with haste
With a smile beaming on my face
And the shadows disappear
My eye sheds a tear, cause I know where You are,
Your in my heart

From the depths of my depravity,
Comes screaming this insanity,
Cursing, bruising, all of me,
Taking what I cannot be,
But I hear a voice from hell,
"This choice you make can light dispel,
These creatures crawling from the well,
Can stories righteous always tell,"
But light is fading for truth is gone,
A song sung dirge, from dusk to dawn,
And then red skies that pool with blood
Come crashing, flowing, like a flood
To think, to know, that vanity
Has gripped its grasp, its hold on me,
And stolen from eternity,
Redemption's purpose, song, and prose,
And spilt the blood from bloody rose!

On a night where the stars shined bright in the sky.
So bright that their light
Trickled down to the sea,
All darkened with night.
The waves lapped at the shore
Every now and again,
Reflecting the flicker of a flame
That danced between two men.
One man sat taller than the other one,
For he was a father, and the other his son.
They sat in a moment of silence until
The son looked around in the still night air.
From the stars to the waves,
From the stone to the flames.
Each one reminded him of his father
In some small way.
The twinkle of his fathers eyes ,
He saw in the stars.
While the warmth of the fire reminded him
Of his fathers kind heart.
In the waves he felt the power
Of his father alone.
While the strength of his fist,
He saw in the stone.
He thought aloud,
"How could this be?"
Then his father replied,
"Into each of these Ive put a piece of me."
Just then the son looked down at himself,
By the light of the flame,
And he saw that he and his father
Looked very much the same.
"I wonder", asked the son,
With a bit of glee.
"What piece of yourself
Have you put into me?"
"Not a piece", said the father.
"But every part.
For the flame of my spirit
Burns in your heart."
"And my strength, like a stone
Will keep you from crumbling.
While my power alone
Will enable you to run without stumbling."
"Now go, like a star,
And shine for my glory.
Use all of these things
to tell others my story.

30 pieces of silver!
Judas, close you’re eyes
Judas, kill your conscience
Because the purpose of existence
Is culminating in a moment
Judas, numb your nerves
Judas, break your heart
The Son of God you betray
With this unholy kiss
Your corrupt, rotting lips
Graced His perfect face
And damned the Son of God
To this great disgrace
But now I realize
Behind your glowing eyes
Lies a creature stealthily
That looks just like me
