Link Line 02:32
Minds captured and controlled by the sin disease Getting together to build the mad phone machine Pre-recorded lies speaking in the voice of a god Victims think they’re thinking for themselves helplessly nod Pre packaged with hip-hop graphics and the pamphlet looks cool If you seek out another opinion you are condemned a fool Like the death camp Jews who worked to finance their own deaths Money coming out of our pockets to misfeed heads Link Line (Disconnect the) Link Line Let alone not preaching abstinence but encouraging sex Let alone not saying it’s a choice but you’re stuck with homo-sex Employing theories and opinions that fit the agenda the best Selling it as truth with nothing getting through to oppose this Purporting to be of help and of service to the community Achieving nothing but to spread a kind of immunity To anything righteous and that costs and is the difficult way In the name of their philosophy and the god of “anything you say” I’ll hang on to my Bible cause its burning’s on the way Teach my children well that we’re at war today Chip away at my block at the corner that the Lord gives Make the most of my life and the time I’ve got here to live So you can take your Link Line and make all your little chains This is one player praying against all your games You versus God and it’s a battle for every mind Pit eternity against the rest of your life

this silver platter world handing out its song and dance says subjective obsolescence is the right of all humans condemned human race dancing to their hormonal tunes which change according to food intake and tides changed by the moon try it you may not like it trade it in come tomorrow for the main objective in this life is to be devoid of sorrow buy it if you can or steal it if you must and look into the mirror if you need someone you can trust and we can say things didn’t work out til we say things don’t work out you can say things don’t work out i say it’s people who don’t guided by fear of all commitment we can run but we’re still owned by all our petty fears and desires we’ll never satisfy on our sick beds with question marks in our heads as we die god has shown us what is right and what there is to care for but we’re in a hall of mirrors darkly uncaring to find the door words like sin redemption and trust hit our ears irrelevantly condemning ourselves to no hiding place in the time of missed glory to God we’ll say things didn’t work out and God will say shut up and get out

Destroy 04:49
i don’t believe in you anymore or the things you sell don’t accept as fact everything your loudspeakers tell canine snarls lurk behind your every fluoride smile your well-placed bright fashions become a necropolis after awhile the God I love and His Truth branded archaic biased against and ignored in the new state of mind religion of do it yourself instant lords i have bowed to your little global sphere my own mind you have touched trying to make your required sacrifices as my sanity was crushed i look up and see your pharisees sitting there judging your eyes accusing with your words grudging skepticism your God you reduce me to my appearance in your statistical world my voice has no clearance we’re the new heretics you burn our books at the stake i pray to God to take you out of my mind all that i hate your warped moralities changeable to kill posing as a toy good and innocence in your sights you’re ready to destroy so many lies from my lips as i kowtowed to yor party line trying to embrace the colors that could never be mine you disguise things so well token causes as mock fresh breath seems so right but the ends thereof are the ways of death to blow your tumors out of my brain is to be truly alive you blinded me and removed the freedom Jesus won me when He died you wanted to keep me laughing in your shackles til the day of my death leaving my God to work without me me missing out on what He’d bless your scientific advancements mere discoveries of God’s creation yet He shrinks in your psyche while He really becomes greater the collective brain losing oxygen arteries cut off from their Source poison fruit of malignant seed planted and set on hellbound course try to ignore eternal yearnings and the innate need to trust there are no ghosts where there are no men you’ll be conquered by dust packaging immediate contenment and selling it as ultimate joy happiness as virtue in your sights you’re ready to destroy the blind following of these empty alleyways is the only blame to place for there’s nothing truly human about your human reich even now you make these words fall on indifferent ears but I fight you every day long as God keeps me here may God use me to my fullest protect me against your lies give me love to show to your suicide row that they may survive i destroy you world in my mind cut your babylon spider web the smoke from your ashes won’t have my tears in it

Acts of Love 06:50
I don’t know the circumstances All I’ve heard is what I read And a couple of people where I worked Are dead of the disease Your emptiness your void no different Than the one once inside me Someone got in front of your eyes And became so tempting Who was the human landmine That you shared passions with? What was going on in his mind The moments that you kissed? Awareness of death’s specter Or ignorance untold? Or fear of what was in your blood Not knowing what was in his own So tempting to say I’m glad I’m not you Get away from me You’re not like me So tempting to say It’s your own fault You asked for it all Hear judgment’s call Til God pulls me from my sin And shows me all the hate I’m in Nothing left to do but give And pray that you can still live My flesh so used to searching Sometimes forgets it’s found All the reason it needs to live Beyond touch and sight ang sound So tempting have been the situations It has been through No guarantee that in the future I won’t have to face what’s facing you If Jesus is my master His Spirit the Source from which I live I must allow Him to take over me Allow Him to let me give To temper exhortations With decisive acts of love Acts with fingers that point not at me But straight up above Cholera in times of love Triumph of the pill Sex is dead the new cry The god of choice is ill Children of the revolution Slowly eaten away Society binge and purge Of liberation ways Conqueror germs in the air Running through veins All across the face of the earth A growing red stain Souls spiraling downward falling Solutions backfired Accompanying drought of love Eros getting tired

Judas 05:37
Judas at the end of the rope No salvation and no hope Judas at the end of the rope No hope Did he wonder if it had to be As he succumbed to his destiny Did he wonder about what he missed As his lips formed to kiss Satan makes for easy stomping Knowing how he’s behind it all But what to say about Judas What day really saw his fall Did thirty pieces really turn the tide Or was betrayal always in his mind How was he born and raised Was his life filled with dark days Was the serpent his companion Or was the deal already done Did his father break his bones Did he steal or was he stolen from Judas bought the death that bought us life Fulfilled the chronicle from before time It had to happen but it was his choice Though the book was written he had a voice Logic mysterious unassailable Til the end of time concealed Like Pharoah’s heart hardened So God’s glory would be revealed

Psychic Pain 05:54
utopian visions of a dream world quickly fade into dust you finally seize the golden prize and see it’s really rust obstacles are overcome but followed by another test finally settling in the sun still get wracked by stress happiness brings on psychic pain for the darkness surely follows the sun inevitably sets for each rise on the morrow your reality of existence you can’t escape an absurd meaninglesness yet you think you reason your inner world can’t explain why with it you’re blessed got no way to say who’s right or wrong takes thirtysomething states to ratify constitution hitler pursued his destiny with approval of public opinion cut away fron God it is the human condition no happy endings for the rich see them languish and die alone the poor die their absurd deaths drugs or aids or starvation conformed to the choice conformed to the fall sweet breath of Revelation taken as a tale too tall saving bitterest tears for when the Truth hits their eyes will God also cry knowing they won’t be dried?

You Are God 03:33
You wake up in the morning and you call the mirror God With eyes deep inside that show a man in love Self-hypnotized to your transcendency within Idiot-proofed game you play, no matter what you lose you think you win Your soul is your sycophant and you’ve trained it well Drink your sacred cup of today’s lies or chemicals From the ape you have evolved now it’s in your hands You’re going to take that leap of faith, make that advance You are God-so they’ve told you Science pulled down the curtain on Oz You are God-so they’ve told you What you see is whart you’ve got You are God-so they’ve told you So if you must you’ll go out and kill You are God-so they’ve told you The bottom line is “do what you wilt” Spent a century tearing down icons and setting up your might Every instrument readout now says your presence is a blight An empire of waste, a dominion of toilet seat Try to allay the guilt by criminalizing consumption of meat Possibilty of an underlying condition never crossing your mind Everything seemingly in your grasp controllable but time Something inside wants to be free-flying but you can’t decide what With every crystal and pyramid that you’ve got The gate to your heaven so wide even Hitler can get in Because in your world there’s no such thing as sin Blow it in this life you can pay for it in the next The prize nirvana or who-knows-what, not that important I have a vision of all the paths converging on celestial heights Every human being hand in hand walking up no bickering about who’s right Happy music fills the air harmonmious voices blend to one sound Drowning out the cries of those who reach the end and fall to the ground

in the beginning there was darwin and marx formulating theories to throw out God artificial reality free of absolutes the only sin left is telling the truth pregnant child-mom smoking crack spike lee and athletes counterattack noble fight against the symptoms of redemption lost in the want for freedom from all cost man, you made a lonely world every human now a walking lie in his own system of born to live and die one eye desperate on the great beyond with incantations to bring the magic wand to turn the beast back into the prince to balloon back home to Kansas to bring back primeval memories gone but something somewhere’s been left undone

Something new on the TV Something new to get to me Three more sitting on the fence With inadequate defense Three more fell in mammon’s spell Making money out of hell Now glory goes to ABC For reporting the truth to you and me Now glory goes to doomed souls As they just say “I told you so” A few less tears for a burned down church Less sympathy for a suppressed Word Three more like those before defrocked The saints become a laughingstock Three more reasons to say no To Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord Reasons to say no Just look at all this on the TV Suits by Cardin and Armani Look real good with diamond rings And velvet carpeted settings For the rich I have no dis If they know what to do with it Actionless emotions are a lie Quick way to regret when you die TV cameras can never catch What’s behind a door safely latched If at some point they ever do Edit it to do what you want it to An easily manipulated medium To see it is to believe it Medium and message in control Pay your money buy your soul If the cameras could only catch The silent struggles of believers attacked They’re the ones we could look up to They’re the ones who do what we should do Look up to Jesus first no one else Placing others before themselves Feeding those out without a home Keep believing when tomorrow’s unknown Unafraid to share the Word In the everyday neighborhood world Sometimes at night they’ll cry from sin Pray from the hole they’ve fallen in Soon enough you’ll see their cheer As the Lord did not turn a deaf ear There’s some reason to say yes To salvation through Jesus Reasons to say yes

about

The 1994 debut is effectively reborn, as Julio REYmasters the original CD tracks. Epic arrangements, over-the-top stylistic juxtapositions, out-of-control blastbeats and slapping bass and 78 RPM guitar solos coupled with passionately pathologically reactionary lyrics. Now matched with a newfound sonic clarity and power that finally does the music justice.
