Track Name: The devils game
Verse:

If I die tomorrow,
I pray the lord my soul to take,
but tonight I play the devil's game.
With all your lying and cheating ways,
you took the food from my family's plate,
So tonight I'm coming for you

Chorus:

I'm no angel and I'm no saint.
I'm just a man trying to make his way.
I may be lost, but you know what I've found?
There's no forgiveness for men like us.

Verse:
If you get the best of me,
and they put me six feet under the ground,
best know I'm down here waiting on you.
With all your lying and cheating ways,
you took the food from my family's plate.
So, tonight I'm coming for you.
Track Name: A better way
Verse:

Creation groans in expectation.
you call slavery free.
The only key to my redemption,
begins and ends with me

Chorus:

You say there's something better.
You say you know a better way.
I say tomorrow begins with yesterday.

Verse:

No, I'm not afraid to die.
Yeah, I know the score.
You build your grand cathedral
on the back's of the poor.
Track Name: There's something better
Verse:

I'm staring at you
staring at me.
Hoping to find
something to believe.
With each glance
you think twice,
hoping to find something inside.

Chorus:
There's something better.
There's something better
for you and me.
There's something better.
There's something better.
Don't you agree?

Verse:

I'm staring at you
staring at me.
Hoping to find
something to believe.
Life has left me
battered and bruised.
There's no difference
between me and you
Track Name: Seasons
Verse

I feel like dancing in the rain.
Let the November breeze kill my pain.
The chill of autumn melts my soul.
As I breath your love, it makes me whole.

Chorus:

When you spend your time
chasing lies.
Seasons change
before your eyes.

Verse:

The sky is painted desert gray.
While the wind whispers your name.
The chill of autumn melts my soul.
As I breath your love, it makes me whole.
Track Name: So, I'll ask
Verse:

Hospital beds,
weary heads
some things you can
never change.
Fumbled prayers,
awkward stairs,
I'm watching life
slowly change.

Chorus:

So, I'll ask.
Where were you
when they needed you the most?
You fed the hungry,
healed the blind.
But right now you're
nowhere to be found.

Verse:

Gunshots ring
far from home.
A boy must become a man.
Silent prayer,
Sirens wail.
His life turned
upside down.

Repeat chorus:

Verse:

Empty bottles,
bloodshot eyes.
The vice of a broken man.
Desperate prayers,
overdose,
I cried out your name.

Repeat chorus:
