01. The Discovery

Music by God Forbid
Instrumental.


02. The Rain

Music & lyrics by God Forbid
The dirt of this world washes away as the sun disappears
Behind the cloud
A new start
The rebirth
Another chance

Rain on down
I don't mind the rain
It cleanses me
Hides the tears which cloud my vision
The vision to see

Past mistakes remove
You can try again
Inhale the air around you
Don't let time pass by

Rain on down
I don't mind the rain
It cleanses me
Hides the tears which cloud my vision
The vision to see

Not a care in this world
Not a care in this world
Live in this moment
Right here and now
Nothing is promised
Except for the storm

And in this moment right here and now
I can't stop the rain
Release my pain
And let me breathe agin
Prepare for the storm

Rain on down
I don't mind the rain
It cleanses me
Hides the tears which cloud my vision
The vision to see

Not a care in this world
Not a care in this world
And in this moment right here and now
I can't stop the rain.


03. Empire Of The Gun

Music & lyrics by God Forbid
It seems like yesterday
That day I held you in my arms
Now I'm gone
The warm embrace of my protector is lost forever
I will make it back to you or die trying
You are with me every step I take
I know not why
But I must honor you
I swear I will make it back home
Back home

Soldiers won't be cast into their afterlives
For a fight they never believed in
Go!

It seems like yesterday
That day I held you in my arms
Now I'm gone
The warm embrace of my protector is lost forever
I will make it back to you or die trying
You are with me every step I take
I know not why
But I must honor you
I swear I will make it back home
Back home

Soldiers won't be cast into their afterlives
For a fight they never believed in
I wasn't born to die

Empire of the gun
Empire the...gun
Empire of the gun
We will not fail
We will not falter
Empire of the gun

Soldiers won't be cast into their afterlives
For a fight they never believed in
I wasn't born to die
But I would sacrifice my life.


04. War Of Attrition

Music & lyrics by God Forbid
Bring it on
In the absence
I will introduce my wrath
My malice
Wicked cancer grows beneath the surface
Head to finger
You make me sick
Hating on my freedom
It doesn't matter
What you say
It eats away...

I am the hunted
I am the atrocity
The only chance my kin survives
I am the hunted
I am the atrocity
The only chance my kin survives

This is a war of attrition
Bring it on
Bring it on
Bring it on
This is a war of attrition

No...we are the voice of tomorrow
No...to lies and deception
No...to the chokehold of despair
No...it eats away

This is a war of attrition
Bring it on
Bring it on
Bring it on
This is a war of attrition

In the return from disenchantment
There is but one thing on his mind
How has it come to this?
All that is remembered
Cast into the landscape searching for his...retribution
Retribution...the only chance
Blood will spill
Blood will spill
Bow down to your master
Retribution
Retribution

Bring it on
This is a war of attrition...
Attrition
This is a war of attrition.


05. The New Clear

Music & lyrics by God Forbid
It's all a dream
A spider's web
You're a number
Symbiosis
Symbiosis
The rhythm contorts
Stretches
Manipulates
I waits for an answer that never existed
Never existed
Never existed
Never existed
Never existed
We dream in blood and circuits
We dream in blood and circuits

Find me because I'm there
Find me because I'm there

You are all the abstract
You are nothing
Both the same

You are the new clear
You are the essence of our earth
And now I summon your spirit
Please God
I cherish my life

Our dreams are the only thing we have when things are down
Your courage to show the fool the world will clear the path

Find me because I'm there
Find me because I'm there

You are the new clear
You are the essence of our earth
And now I summon your spirit
Please God
I cherish my life

You're a clone of disaster
The edge of chaos
The beginning of life
The end of death
Pleased to meet you
My name is soul
Repeat after me
My name is soul
Soul
In dark spaces unknown to man
A mystical power lies within your hand

Find me because I'm there
Yeah

The paradox is heaven in our bones
The victors' book is lost

The paradox is heaven in our bones
The victors' book is...

Find me because I'm there
Yeah
Find me because I'm there
Yeah.


06. Shallow

Music & lyrics by God Forbid
Where do we go?
Where do we begin and end this journey?
My back
My back against the wall
And my head raised high
Forward against the odds
A heavy burden
Trapped between the extremes
Coming apart at the seams
Left alone to stand on my own

You're shallow
So shallow...
Come on

Here I am above the world trying to break you down
Misguided attempt to restore the balance
Isolation from the outside world
A heavy burden
Trapped between the extremes
Coming apart at the seams
Left alone to stand on my own

You're shallow
So shallow...
Come on

Surfacing above the world in suspended animation
Surfacing above the world in suspended animation
Beaten into the ground
Coming apart at the seams
You're shallow.


07. Walk Alone

Music & lyrics by God Forbid
Why would you walk into the fire?
Under a shield of love
I give myself to you
Tugging at the strings of my heart
Oh how I wish you were here
Turned on me, and left me empty
You took my heart and changed me
Under a shield of love
With every glance, I give myself to you

You don't have to walk alone
With the world left behind us
We step into the unknown
You don't have to walk alone
With the world left behind us
We step into the unknown

The pain I feel without you eats away at me
The slow drawn breath released from my body
Over
Over and over
The restriction of air
Shifting your point of view
Where do you take your stand?
What do you lose?
Addict
Under a shield of love
With every glance, I give myself to you

You don't have to walk alone
With the world left behind us
We step into the unknown
You don't have to walk alone
With the world left behind us
We become one

Broken down...my barriers
And walked right in
What do you lose?
The sacred bond we hold in our grasp is closer to hell
Than the heaven we see in our dreams

Broken down My barriers
And walked right in
You're tugging at the strings of my heart
Am I the fool for searching for the truth?
It's only lies...
It's only lies
If I find the truth I seek, I won't read the signs
Under a shield of love
With every glance, I give myself to you

You don't have to walk alone
With the world left behind us
We step into the unknown
You don't have to walk alone
With the world left behind us
We become one.


08. Bat The Angels

Music & lyrics by God Forbid
Cast me to the fire
Nail me to the first cross you see
I am a sinner
I am a disgrace
These scars on my back will soon be replaced

We bat the angels out the sky
We bat the angels out the sky
We bat the angels out the sky
We bat the angels 'til they die

My dreams are that of an angel
And I believe the angel lives in me
I am a sinner
I am a disgrace
Feel this
This change through me
Feel this
The world will pay

We bat the angels out the sky
We bat the angels out the sky
We bat the angels out the sky
We bat the angels 'til they die

My dreams are that of an angel
And I believe the angel lives in me

Out the sky
We bat the angels out the sky
We bat the angels out the sky.


09. Earthsblood

Music & lyrics by God Forbid
I haven't been your king
I promised I would be
Liar
Puppet
Addiction fill the free
Free realm I used to be
Sick
Diseased
Am I helpless to the fate of this world?
Has color or belief separated us?
Separation...from our neighbors
The secrets you try to hide are revealed time and time again
We reap the day
Can't go back home
We scavenge graves
Off to hell we go
I never thought it would come to this
Bare witness to the destructive power of man
Why has it come to this?
Rules broken and changed to satisfy
We reap the day
Can't go back home
We scavenge graves
Off to hell we go

All together we stand and rise
Or there will be blood
Opposition set around me
Illusion of equality
Liberty, a far cry
All together we stand and rise
Or there will be blood
Opposition set around me
Illusion of equality
Liberty, a far cry
I haven't been your king
I promised I would be
Liar
Puppet
Addiction fill the free
Free realm I used to be
Sick
Diseased

We are born of conviction
Reality is my muse
Become the meditation
The tragedy reveals the truth
Groove!
We are born of conviction
Reality is my muse
Become the meditation
The tragedy reveals the truth
Scratching the surface
Looking for answers
What do you see when you see me?
The remains of a world in rage
And the gaze of a dead eye

All together we stand and rise
All together we stand and rise
All together we stand and rise
All together we stand and rise.


10. Gaia (The Vultures)

Music & lyrics by God Forbid
What is it you said?
Say it again you piece of shit
I spilled your blood, and the earth soaked it up
The blood in my veins fueled with the fire of past generations
I spilled your blood, and the earth soaked it up
You pulled the finger of the only one that left me in chains
I spilled your blood, and the earth soaked it up
Now I'll never walk away
Never walked away
I can't try to hear your words
I won't try to be a vulture
I thought I could turn away
Hide to try to live in this world

Gaia
Gaia
Gaia
Gaia

What is it you said?
Say it again you piece of shit
I spilled your blood, and the earth soaked it up
The blood in my veins fueled with the fire of past generations
I spilled your blood, and the earth soaked it up
You pulled the finger of the only one that left me in chains
I spilled your blood, and the earth soaked it up
Now I'll never walk away
Never walked away
I can't try to hear your words
I won't try to be a vulture
I thought I could turn away
Hide to try to live in this world
Make of this what you will
Make of this what you will

Make of this what you will
Make of this what you will
Make of this what you will
Make of this what you will.
