We've gone from Exodus to building chariots with alms for the the poor Jumping in line with the generations of the oppressed becoming the oppressors Forcing our power on others in the name of peace Lessons of history falling on deaf ears Closing our eyes and (calling ourselves blind) Our walls conjure violence While our war calls bounce from the ceiling Meanwhile the graves are shaking, screaming NO MORE WAR! Machiavellianism doesn't excuse an empire of greed Killing doesn't end death Bombs don’t bring peace Don't forget that even bad men bleed And cry out to brothers, sisters, fathers and sons We were taught that two wrongs don't make a right But in a history of violence Resident evil has taken control Drowning out the cries of the oppressed Condemning the other side of the same coin Desperate to douse out the flame But using gasoline (we’re using gasoline) We are all searching, but not all who search are lost We are all searching, but not all who search are lost With dead men's blood on our hands We can still find forgiveness With forgiveness, we can find peace With peace there is an end to war Blood for blood, They scream But if we give it, it can never be taken (no it can never be taken) We can change everything

Darkness closing in on me A lighthouse clothed in shadows A compass with no dial, no stars pointing me Lost at sea, brokeness is all I see. I’m torn up inside, the world has lost it's light A tired record playing on repeat Something isn’t right, (something isn’t right) If you writhe in pain (The world’s not as it should be) You are not alone, you are not alone We’re all trying to sing, but we’ve lost the tune It’s a tired old song, teach us something new we will sing a new song we will see a new song Theres a factory in all our hearts, and the fires burn us clean (burning) We feed them with pain, and are confused at soot billowing We’ve lost that the burning is what keeps it beating (keep beating) Let us tell a new tale, one of hope Gears grinding, the refiners fire bring us to life We burn together, (we are not alone) The fires burning, (give us hope) Everything in us breaking, Everything in us alive The alchemist working, Guiding us home Making soot to gold Brokeness, brings us together Restoration makes us alive As we sing a new song A new world is beginning Pass the torch Light the beacons, Refiners fire guides you home

Some sit on a pulpit of levity A wolf in sheeps clothing With a message of orthodoxy Everything that they teach Reflecting their own depravity “Blessing” the world with their morality Congratulations captain! Report to duty for the moral police You have made it very clear what to believe But it seems dead without orthopraxy So perfect, (at pointing the finger) So blind, (to the log in your eye) There is something better Than screaming at the dark We can’t fix anything by fixating on our “superiority” All you need, is to turn on the light It all starts with a spark The light is so much more powerful than dark Wake up to a better way There is hope in humility This may come off a little harsh Maybe the point isn’t in being right What was planted as a beautiful tree, We have polluted into a filthy machine Ideologically supplying dogma won’t stop our generation from killing itself Because we can preach on a stage and say we stand for something But if we have not love, it is nothing but a gong clanging… And my ears are ringing, (My ears are ringing) But the tides are changing A symphony is playing Drowing out the clanging We are all the same We are all seeking We are all seeking something more

Believe in a better world Born of love Not born from the bullets of war But Born from the blood of sacrifice Where there is hatred let me sow love Instead of throwing molotovs at the fire It’s in giving that we receive It’s in pardoning that we are pardoned and it’s in dying that we are born There is hope There is hope for a better world Make me an instrument of thy peace Tuned like a string for a symphony The song of heaven waits The song of heaven waits Hope in Bb screams at full blast Screaming like a black hole What started as a tiny crack will tear open To sing a new song, we’ll sing a new song In him there is hope Your kingdom come, your will be done On earth as in heaven Bring heaven hope Every breath, your love Break me.

Crimson, everything crimson Darkens to black, consumes me, and I feel dead And there is a river At the bottom of the deepest valley Where death turns to life (Flowing) Bringing hope in despair There is a reminder of dusk No matter how dark the night (He still makes the sun rise) Healing is more powerful than pain Healing is more powerful than dying This isn't the end It's just the beginning This isn't the end It's just the beginning Hope no matter what I see a promise fulfilled Hope no matter what I see a world of love Hope no matter what A world set free Hope no matter what Enemies trading arms Melting them down to turn into plows Weapons becoming tools Killing replaced with sacrifice The end of death starts with life The end of death starts with life Everything alive Everything singing Our atoms resounding With one voice He is not just coming He is here, the king has arrived All that exists in joyful harmony Everything is right Bring down the wall Everything old crumbling Rebuild everything Hope is victory Victory
