about

The album "Awakening" is in part a musical bio of me (and people like me who are) coming to the realization that Christ is essential to life. The Album starts off with a declaration of the current state of the world, followed by a song that is both a limerick and a lament. It is a "coming to life" anthem. The album then takes a detour into a fantastic realm of action and drama, merged with spiritual statements about the warriors (the church) and their enemies (spirits of old) clashing throughout time. After the fight, one warrior shares his personal struggles with depression and offers his spiritual walk with God as the only hope he has. The album finishes with two songs that collectively show how emptiness can drive you to the cross, and that God is willing to forgive.

Awakening is designed to be a thought provoking experience. It is intended to show a perspective of the world we live in that enlightens one to the need for repentance. Repentance comes as a gift from God, but when we loose sight of what we're turning away from, we may never fully understand our brokenness, confusion, and basic need to wake up from our state of spiritual slumber. Christ offers awakening. Will you accept?

Track Name: New Year's Eve [Theatrical Version]
Intro
Now I lay me down to sleep
Drowning in monotony
Gone too far and in too deep
I need you to save me

Verse 1
Deadman walking fast asleep
Blind to my impurities
Promises I never keep
Can you please forgive me

Now you wake me from my sleep
Trust in you my soul to keep
Open up my eyes to see
Your love is amazing

Chorus
Isn't it Amazing
Isn't it Amazing
Your love's so Amazing
Isn't it Amazing

Verse2
Deadman risen from the deep
Clothed in new identity
Breathe your spirit into me
Make me like a baby

Turn me from iniquity
Turn me now to follow thee
Train my hands for victory
Look at how you've changed me

Verse3
**It's true ya'll
I'm gone be singin' some Hallelujah's
**New songs
Raisin' my praises up to the true one
**It's You Lord
This forever what I will do
I'm consecrated, committed, and dedicated to you, Yah

Chorus
Isn't it Amazing
Isn't it Amazing
Your love's so Amazing
Isn't it Amazing

Verse 4
Now that we know him a little bit better Ya'll
We need to chase him a little bit harder ya'll
We need to pray for a little bit longer now
We need to praise him a little bit louder now
x2

Verse5
Bear my burden, share my grief
Shed your blood to wash me clean
Gave your life on Calvary
Long before you made me

Chorus
Isn't it Amazing
Isn't it Amazing
Your love's so Amazing
Isn't it Amazing

Track Name: The Beginning Of These Things
Verse 1
They laughed at the thought they would ever bow down to the ones who were made from the dust of the ground. Much farther down than the ones who were rulers in Heaven.
They were made from the fire and passion to burn with their love for the Mighty Creator of Earth, but their reasoning swayed when the fire began to deceive them. Was their journey worth the loss of glory they'd behold had they stayed beside the throne?

Verse 2
They departed form Heaven, abandoning Grace, to be one with the arms of a mortal embrace, beginning a culture of worship we still subscribe to. In the secrets of reading the stars, of roots, of seduction, and bearing of arms, along with intentions to distance the one we would turn to, were their lessons innocent professions or intentional progressions all along?

Chorus
Their lives were ended the moment that they landed. Rejected by the hand of all they loved, they have turned their wrath on us. Their lives were ended the moment that they landed. The momentary passion's consequence in the minds of "never-ending".

Verse 3
With their passions arousing their worlds would collide. The Daughters of Man would have nothing to hide: The power of angels bestowed to the son she would bear him. But, depravity grows in the mind of a god as restraining him proves and impossible job. His hunger would grow and his judgment would drown in the blood of his foes as it pours from his mouth. Sinful nature, born a soulless creature, they've become the abominable ones.

Chorus
Their lives were ended the moment that they landed. Rejected by the hand of all they loved, they have turned their wrath on us. Their lives were ended the moment that they landed. The momentary passion's consequence in the minds of "never-ending".

Verse 4
Refused into Heaven, returned to the dirt, unable to eat of the fruit of the Earth, they would grow in their envy and learn to despise the Elect of the mortals and Children of Light. They could leave from the ground to the depths of Sheol, they could learn how to torture the depths of a soul, or be worshiped as gods in the place of the Mighty Creator.

Chorus
Their lives were ended the moment that they landed. Rejected by the hand of all they loved, they have turned their wrath on us. Their lives were ended the moment that they landed. The momentary passion's consequence in the minds of "never-ending".
Track Name: We Are the Knights
[Demons]
We Are the things that you see inside
We are the reason you run and hide
We are the things that you see in the night, in your dreams when you scream and you wake up

We never sleep
We never breathe
You cut us up
but We never bleed

[Warrior]
I tried to run away
I tried with all my might
*but the creature remains
I had to stay and fight
*the blood was shed
I called the name of Christ
*now the creature is dead

[Saints]
We are the Knights
We are the bride
We are the one who'll stand together
We live for the fight
We never die
We are the one's who'll live forever
Track Name: The Master's Plan
(Verse 1)
So this is the End
The world is all over
There's nowhere to stand
but the words are still here
You thought that all was lost
thought you were dead and gone
you're put back on your feet by the hand of Almighty God
if this is what He does
if this is really Love
then there's a meaning behind the battle we're speaking of


(chorus)
This is the way we start tomorrow
This is how we fight the sorrow
This is how we face the day
Through the power of YHWH

This is the Name we praise forever
This is why we stay together
This will never fade away
The Splendor of YHWH

(Verse 3)
So this is the end
we found the horizon
We're here in his hands
and the path is made clear

His Wisdom will be shown
His perfect Will be known
and every step we choose to follow him we start to grow
and as it starts to show
for all the world to know
May He be honored in the things we do forever more

(Verse 4)
So this is the end
Our lives are laid down here
by the Blood of the Lamb
our debts have been cleared

Salvation will be found
and oh, "How sweet the sound"
to know that we get to enter into the House of God
And as we all kneel down
We'll offer up our crowns
and give him honor and raises unto His name renowned
