Samson Wick Probably the most thoughtful intelligent "hair-metal" ever recorded. For a freshman release it is amazingly well polished. Guy Ritter's high-pitched screaming vocals border on the unbelievable and are perfectly contrasted by the lower end of his range. So many memorable tracks, it's hard to pick my favorite, but I've always loved the slow buildup of the acoustic intro to "Tears of Korah" leading into a shred-your-face-off riff-fest. Unparallelled. Favorite track: Tears of Korah.

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

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

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? Gen 1:20-30, Hab 2:17, Ps 145:9,16-17, Ps 150:6, Ex 23:11-12, Jon 4:11, Prov 12:10

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 Nu 12:3, Ex 3:10, Nu 16:1-3, Nu 16:16-18, Acts 3:17-23, Eph 4:7-10, Matt 12:37, Gal 1:9, Rev 20:15

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! Eph 6:11, Jer 6:16-19, Matt 12:30, Is 45:9, Matt 25:41, Rev 12:9, Matt 7:13-14, Eph 2:8-9, Rev 19:15

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 Rev 9:6, John 5:39-40, Matt 19:24, Matt 7:7-10, 2 Ti 3:16, James 1:22-25, Rev 20:15

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

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

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 Rev 17:3, Rev 17:18, Rev 18:2-3, Rev 17:5, Da 4:28-32
