Track Name: The Test for Leprosy
Under the law
Set by Almighty God
The priests had the power
To change your desitiny

Festering boils
Chronic disease
For seven days
Complete isolation

The test for leprosy
Find you unclean

Consigned to neglect
Outside the city gates
Tear all your clothes
And cover your face

One hope you have
Your sores will turn white
Through ritual atonement
Pronounce you clean
The test for leprosy
Heal the unclean

Leprosy, leprosy
Unclean
Leprosy, leprosy
Unclean

We are all like lepers
Without Christ's love in us

Let him heal you let him
Heal you let him will you

Lev 13-14, Jer 17:14, Ps 30:2, Matt 8:2-3, Luke 17:11-19, Matt 11:5
Track Name: Ready or Not
A step in the wrong direction
Is one more step closer to hell
Avoiding the vital confession
You're under the enemies spell

Just as a dog will return to his vomit
Some have returned to their wicked old ways
Not even knowing that God becomes jealous
Hearts will stop beating
When people hear him say...

Ready or not - Here I come!

For heaven's sake what are we doing?
Most of us don't even know
'He's coming back' isn't forever
So, get ready if you wanna go

A.S.A.P.! Say goodbye to the devil,
Selfishness, ego and greed
Soon you will see this is no laughing matter
Freedom will end when the great I Am says...

Ready or not - Here I come!

What on earth could you possibly be thinking?
No one has the guts to let you know
It's about time you put away your finger
Cuz the church is not our model of perfection

Just as a dog will return to his vomit
Some have returned to their wicked old ways
Not even knowing your heart has been hardened
Your tears will be bleeding
You wake up and your friends are gone

Ready or not - Here I come!

Prov 4:14-15, Prov 16:25, 2 Peter 2:22
Track Name: Ark of Suffering
You think it's alright to destroy God's creation
They don't have a voice so who cares how we're treating them here
If you read his word you should know that he blessed them
I know your defense is to say "God said dominate them"

Do you think dominate means to kill just for sport?
Wear the fur from their backs, train them for circus acts?
Take our pets to be gassed once their "cute" age has passed?

Don't you see in their eyes how they trust us
But man in his sin turns that trust into horrible pain
When God says to man give account of your life's work
We must be prepared to reply "Your creation I loved"

Locked behind steel cage forced to take drugs we've made
Cut them up just to show what we already know

Before they die... who will hear them cry?

Track Name: Tears of Korah
A humble man
Moses of Goshen
Behold the plan
You shall deliver them
Out from a land
Escape Egyptian sands
Released from Pharoah's satanic hand

A shameful man
From the highest clan
Korah could not see Divine Authority
He said: You know that we can be the Holy Priests

By fire they tried
By fire they died
Tears of Korah fall from their eyes

Today the same
They rail His Name
Deny the fact of the Savior's act
They say: You know that we can be the Holy Priests

By words you'll try
By words you'll die
Tears of Korah

Track Name: The Threshing Floor
You see life as a game
That you don't want to play in
Born in a world
That you don't wanna stay in

There's only two roads
And none in between them
If you don't choose the Son
The choice you've made is against Him

Watch out! You're gonna lose
If you mess with your maker
Look out! You're gonna lose
If you mess with the snake
Beware you're gonna lose
If you think you can tip-toe in between

Your life is in danger!

You have made up your mind
That you don't need religion
You're such a good person
And you live better than some Christians

Well, I've got some really bad news
You can read it for yourself
Jesus came once to save you
Turn away and He's gonna slay you

Your life is in danger

To confessing Christians that live in sin
To the religious living by the law
Those who heard the Gospel and turned away
Lazy people who wouldn't make up their minds

Your life is in danger - Holy Danger!

Track Name: You Get What You Pray For
All of a sudden this big world will end
Billions of people will wish it never began

Let us pray

No amount of wisdom, stature or wealth
Will impress the ever-loving God
Or (that is) Christ Himself

Let us pray

You get what you pray for
Forgiveness and grace Lord

Ohh - That's what I need

You get what you pray for
Salvation is there for you
Get on your knees

Do you really think that God grades on a curve
when all of the answers are found in the Word Let us pray

Who shall you blame when you're standing in flames
Ya can't pray to Jesus - He won't know your name

Let us pray

You get what you pray for
And that's what it's there for
Ohh - that's what I need
You get what you pray for
And God knows what's best for you
Oh - Get on your knees

You say there's so many things that you need
You never get them cause they would deceive (you)
A man can't stumble when he's on his knees
So let us pray!

All of a sudden God's grace will be torn
Billions of hell bound will wish they never were born

Let us pray

None of your excuses or shattering yells
Will turn the head of God
Who once called for your help

You get what you pray for
And that's what it's there for
Oh - that's what I need
You get what you pray for
What more could you ask for
Oh - but you gotta believe!

You say there's so many things that you need
You never listen so you won't receive
Seek first the kingdom - He knows what you need before you pray

You get what you pray for

Track Name: Swarming Spirits
Two spirits call my name
One from glory one from shame
Burning different flames

I must believe I am receiving
True words of light of the Christ

Swarms of Legions
Swarms of demons
Swarms at war today
Swarms to kill men
Swarms to bless them
Swarms that some obey

The Bible speaks of prayer
For those who have the faith to dare
Jesus Christ is there

Swarms of Angels
Swarms of Devils
Swarms surrounding me
Swarms to kill men
Swarms to bless them
Swarms that we can't see

1 Jn 4:1-6, Heb 12:29, Matt 25:41, Matt 16:15-17, Matt 26:53, Matt 12:43, Eph 6:12
Track Name: Whitewashed Tomb
Instrumental

Matt 23:27
Track Name: Somnambulism
In a permanent dream state
Stumbling in the dark
You walk through life asleep

Confusion overwhelms you
Lifes only what you see

Your eyes look glassy
Wandering aimlesly
You've fallen down the stairs

Is there anyone
To help you find your sanity

Blessed is the man
Who dwells in the unapproachable light
It will open a window
That empties the darkness of your soul

There was a rich ruler
Who mourned his daughters death
In faith came to the Lord

He said if you will only touch her
I know that she will live

But when the master saw her
He said that she's asleep
The crowd just laughed at Him

He said ARISE!
She heard and she obeyed

Blessed is the man
Who dwells in the unapproachable light
It will open a window
that empties the darkness of your soul

If we walk in the light
As He is in the light
He will purify us
Somnambulism - get away from me!

1 Ti 6:16, Matt 9:18-19, 23-26, 1 Jn 1:7
Track Name: Harlot Widow and the Virgin Bride
See the harlot riding sinner scarlet
She's a city made of souls
To the Devil she will hold... to the end

Madness
Drunken blindness...
Fallen! is her kingdom

Future people living out an ancient sin
Before they can win the wedding begins

Queen of ultra darkness harlot of hate
Because of your lust you'll never escape

The pride on your lips is sealing your fate... You just wait!

You've boasted glory as your own
You kept the children from their home

No more blind eyes
Say goodbye to all your lies
The chosen live again
Free from sin
New life within

Broken humans consecrated
By the One they once degraded

Hateful whores transformed to virgins
Delivered from a way that scourged Him

They scourged Him

Virgin bride the Holy blood justified
Your spiritual birth from out of His side

Now the marriage never dies... open your eyes
