The Calling (Gregory, Salmela)
When you've got a call that you just can't ditch
There's noone there who's gonna scratch your itch
Sometimes I got me thinking there's another way
God will keep me strong to fight another day

When you're called you just can't fight it
It's the feeling that's deep inside
Jesus calls boldly to show them the way
That's how it works, start working today

God won't leave you, He's seen it all before
He knows you're weak, just get over it
When He calls your name, be sure you'll be saved
His will absolute, don't think you can change it

When you're called you just can't fight it
It's the feeling that's deep inside
Jesus calls boldly to show them the way
That's how it works, start working today

I know this is true, I've seen it happen to me
You can't escape God once He's pointed at you
Pick up your cross, carry it strong toward him
It's the way to be saved, so start today

When you're called you just can't fight it
It's the feeling that's deep inside
Jesus calls boldly to show them the way
That's how it works, start working today


Play It Loud (Steadman, Gregory)
UFO’s, Vietnam, Texas tea, Taliban
Evolution, superstition, Satan’s bible, God’s a woman
Earth is old, God is dead, truth is found in your head
All this rubbish you just swallow, you think that I am shallow

Everyone tries to be alternative
They think they know a better kind of truth
Isn’t it great to know you’re all the same
Join the elite, be just like everyone
Don’t you see that we’ve all gone astray
Doesn’t it seem like truth is hearsay
Where are the facts that you claim are so real
What is the point of arguing, you’ve failed

Justified inner good, faith in man’s brotherhood
Cosmic theory, we’re all monkeys, we’re so clever, fiction junkies
Many paths lead to God, however you feel good
If you’re so very clever, save yourself by vain endeavour

There is the pop that we see in the news
But in our minds we see it differently
Are there two sides, or do we have it wrong
Could there be three, are we forgetting God
The plan of God is not common belief
Very few know just what is happening
Study the Word and you’ll find everything
Forget the lies and the conspiracies

Alternative these days is just old fashioned truth
The Bible’s the bestselling book never used
Our alternative lifestyle is truly absurd
We worship and serve God and we read the Word
We refuse to take drugs, we do what we should
We can’t say we’re perfect, we try to be good
Our faith in the Lord is what sets us apart
We’re proud to say Jesus resides in our hearts

Don’t be deceived by evil strategy
Focus on God conserve your energy
Satanic lies are made to bring you down
Stand up and fight, shine your light around
Heavenly force will back up every word
You cannot fall when you wield the Sword
Armour of God will keep you safe and sound
Play them some truth and play it really loud

Jesus was just a man, God never had a plan
Christian Science, tarot reading, dianetics, all deceiving
Buddhism, Mormon gods, Satan is just a farce
Moral fibre is our weakness, we won’t let another judge us


Death On The Cross (Travia, Gregory, Salmela)
He came down to Earth as a man for us
Before too long the rulers abhorred him
They hated the things that he stood for
Because His teachings threatened their power
His trial was a farce, He was not guilty
They wanted him dead, so death was His sentence
Crucify Him on a cross, they all shouted
The Son of Man in chains He was taken

He bled, He was whipped, but still He continued
Chose not to call on the heavenly powers
He took all the pain and the torment they gave Him
Shredded skin, gaping wounds could not make Him relent
This man Jesus Christ, He is to be praised
He was lifted for our wrongs on that fateful day
Son of Man, Son of God, all of sin He bore
Precious gift, act of love, that goes on forever

Death, death, death on the cross
Christ, He died for our sin
Death, death, death on the cross
Salvation comes through Him

Death, death, death on the cross
Christ, He died for our sin
Death, death, death on the cross
Salvation comes through Him

When He was crucified at Calvary
Many people witnessed the death of our Lord
They saw the pain in His eyes
They could see He had a broken heart
They heard Him scream out loud from the cross
They were scared as the sky went black
They'd tell you this man was real
They'd tell you that He died for our sin

Death, death, death on the cross
Christ, He died for our sin
Death, death, death on the cross
Salvation comes through Him

Death, death, death on the cross
Christ, He died for our sin
Death, death, death on the cross
Salvation comes through Him

Death, death, death on the cross
Christ, He died for our sin
Death, death, death on the cross
Salvation comes through Him


In Theory (Steadman, Gregory)
They’ve got me on this medication
It makes me numb because it takes away the pain
It hasn’t made me any better
At least I cannot hear the questions in my brain
Where is the voice that spoke to me
Where is the one who knew my soul
I’d rather be labelled insane
Than trapped alone inside this hole

I don’t believe in theory
I don’t accept that we’re all alone
I’ll never bow down to this dust
I know that heaven is my home
I don’t believe we’re monkeys
I know exactly who I am
This silent mockery of trust
Insanity is all I know

The doc increased my medication
He said rejection is a natural part of health
And if I wanted to get any better
I’d better do away with this foolishness
Do only fools look up and pray
When folly makes them pay the cost
Is faith the foolish human way
Of letting go of what we’ve lost

I don’t believe in theory
I don’t accept that we’re all alone
I’ll never bow down to this dust
I know that heaven is my home
I don’t believe we’re monkeys
I know exactly who I am
This silent mockery of trust
Insanity is all I know

One, two, three, four

They’re taking me for tests tomorrow
The doc assures me it will not hurt a bit
He said that soon we’ll all feel better
And there’ll be no more questions in my head
I feel the needle sticking in
I feel the fluid in my veins
My head is going to cave in
While they administer the pain
I feel my spirit fighting death
I know my brain is working well
This little voice inside my head
Is saving me from death and hell

One, two, three, four

One, two, three, four

I don’t believe in theory
I don’t accept that we’re all alone
I’ll never bow down to this dust
I know that heaven is my home
I don’t believe we’re monkeys
I know exactly who I am
This silent mockery of trust
Insanity is all I know

One, two, three, four


Buried Alive (Steadman, Salmela)
Just a little white lie
No more than a pinch of sand
It’s just a version of the facts
To help them understand
It’s just the way it seems
And it won’t hurt a bit
To let them think they’re right
While I just shovel it

I call myself the Sandman
I work while they’re asleep
They think they really know me
I give them pleasant dreams
And when they ask a question
I dig a little sand
I tell them what they want
I’ll even hold their hand

You shall know the truth
Truth shall set you free
No more secret lies
No dishonesty
Christian life can help you
Jesus’ ways bring peace
Gain the trust you lost
By first believing Him

For years I’ve told them stories
That sound as good as truth
I shovel sand and hide
What I find underneath
For if they knew me honest
And if they found the truth
I wouldn’t look so perfect
And my life would be ruined

There’s not much more to go now
I’ve covered really well
And if I shift some more sand
Noone will ever tell
I dig and scratch and bury
I shovel and I hide
With one last scream I realize
It’s me who’s trapped inside

You shall know the truth
Truth shall set you free
No more secret lies
No dishonesty
Christian life can help you
Jesus’ ways bring peace
Gain the trust you lost
By first believing Him

The sand collapses quickly
It’s in my hair, my face
I struggle to get out
I’m all over the place
My lies have caved in on me
And now I cannot breathe
My throat is full of dirt
I’ll never again be free

And as I ponder my fate
I wonder what would be
If I had told the truth
And they really knew me


Celebrity Judge And The Sinners Part I (Steadman, Salmela)
Job sat in the judge’s seat
Satan took defence
God commanded for his deeds
He must make recompense
Job said are you not the one
Responsible for this
Didn’t you cause my suffering
The devil smiled, yes

A rich man came to take the stand
His judges they were many
While he’d prospered in his wealth
They did not have any
They had sold their very souls
To put bread on the plate
He had left his wealth behind
As he stood at Hell’s gate

Moses was next to judge
Darwin hid from sight
For he had shunned the Genesis
To keep men from its light
Moses said, I showed you the way
With scripture from the Lord
Evolution’s twisted system
Never came from God

The Pharisees and all their kind
Were last to take the stand
While people tried to do their best
They ruled with iron hand
Moses said, God wrote the law
And made it set in stone
You hypocrites, you brood of snakes
Your laws will judge your own

Be careful what you do and say
And not just to save face
For God will have His judgement day
And put you in your place


The North Wind (Gregory)
Now is the time for a journey deep in the dark
Through icy chambers that lie deep within your heart
The icy north winds they chill to the very core
Howling as they flow, a truth that is very sure

Christ is Lord
Christ is King
Christ is God
The North Wind

In ancient texts that have been passed down through aeons
There is a premise that just cannot be undone
All we have and all we are is a gift of love
A stone cold truth, stark as ice, revealed from above

Christ is Lord
Christ is King
Christ is God
The North Wind

And so this love that you it feel runs through your veins
Feel your blood unthaw as you are born again
His healing is coming you never will be the same
Now is the time that you must lift high up His name

Christ is Lord
Christ is King
Christ is God
The North Wind

Christ is Lord
Christ is King
Christ is God
The North Wind

Christ is Lord
Christ is King
Christ is God
The North Wind

Christ is Lord
Christ is King
Christ is God
The North Wind

Go nuts

Muscle, tissue, sinew, blood flow accelerates
As you are restored into your intended state
The love of God has restored your heart and soul
The message of the North Wind, it has taken hold

Christ is Lord
Christ is King
Christ is God
The North Wind

Lord, King, God
Lord, King, God
Lord, King, God
Lord, King, God


Tribulation Cometh (Steadman, Salmela)
The end is near, the earth is old
And soon the final horn will sound
We trust in faith that we are saved
We know we stand on solid ground
We’ve been prepared, we’ve seen the signs
We know the end is soon to come
There’s nothing left up for debate
And nothing else which can be done

Tribulation cometh
Let the whole world know
Tribulation cometh
Then where will you go

The Bible shows us the lives of those
Who fought unto persecution’s end
We hope that we will share that strength
Until we meet our Lord and friend
The good book tells us to endure
And fight for Jesus until the death
Terrorism cannot stop us
For we do not fear pain and death

Tribulation cometh
Let the whole world know
Tribulation cometh
Then where will you go

The time is near when we must fight
For the faith that we have found
Among the ruins we will stand
And never fail while foes surround
For Jesus is our guiding light
Our tower of strength in time of plight
When darkness rises like a storm
We’ll overcome, in God we fight

Tribulation cometh
Let them test our might
Tribulation cometh
Will you run or fight
Tribulation cometh
Time for your last breath
Tribulation cometh
We do not fear death
Tribulation cometh
Tribulation cometh
Tribulation comes
To all the earth


Harder To Hate (Gregory)
There once was a time that I’d unleash my anger
Before the spirit of God entered my life
I’d feel bitter at the smallest occurence
But with God’s love I’ve noticed a new change

The spirit of God has gradually changed me
Things that caused anger are now less important
I’m feeling compassion towards my enemies
I’d rather show love than express any hatred

It’s getting much harder to hate
God’s love makes it harder to hate
I’m finding it harder to hate
God’s love makes it harder to hate

I feel more concerned with the problems of others
Though I’m not perfect, there has been a big change
Instead of selfish, I’m feeling compassion
I wanna spend my time serving the gospel purpose

It’s getting much harder to hate
God’s love makes it harder to hate
I’m finding it harder to hate
God’s love makes it harder to hate

Hate hate
Hate hate
Hate hate
Hate hate

Enter His kingdom and feel the change yourself
Like a cool breeze He will change your priorities
Feel the peace of love as He breaks the chains of anger
Be restored unto the purpose Christ intended

Before I knew Christ I was a slave to anger
Consumed with hatred I felt so very bitter
But as His spirit has worked on my heart
I’m finding something odd, I’m realising that

It’s getting much harder to hate
God’s love makes it harder to hate
I’m finding it harder to hate
God’s love makes it harder to hate

Harder to hate
Harder to hate
Harder to hate
Harder to hate
Harder to hate
Harder to hate
Harder to hate
Harder to hate
