Track Name: Measured In Sky
MEASURED IN SKY

VERSE 1

Swing to the rhythm of a Screwtape letter.
Not the Red letter that the heretic spoke.
He’s a total drag and my ways is better.
Do it till you’re satisfied.
Do it til ya choke.
It’s just the dust of the ground you went back to.
The freedom that ya wanted now traps you.
Thinking you can live it up now-
‘cause forever can wait.
Cause if you ain’t sinnin’ then-
ya just ain’ livin’

SUB-VERSE 1

Allow me to entice you.
My palace of pleasures is fully loaded.
But not with things that delight,
but with things that ignite.
Don’t ask yourself if it’s worth it.

CHORUS
You only live forever once.
Your life is measured in sky.
You only live forever once.
Forever smoke or shine.

VERSE 2

I lied before when I said you won’t die.
Now let me sucker y’all one more time.
Everybody’s gotta die one day.
Forget the old book of the Way beyond the grave.
Don’ live by a fairy tale
where the good go to Heaven
and the bad go to Hell.
Shining on High
Or smokin’ below.
It’s all just the language of mind control.

SUB-VERSE 2
Don’t let some old book jive you.
The gospels out-dated and over-rated.
You’re missing all the pleasure
for your eternal treasure.
Gamble for the rush and wage your soul.

REPEAT CHORUS

INTERLUDE
Measured in sky.
Is it so hard to believe?
Smoke or shine
For eternity.

BRIDGE A-B (Modified lyrics from “Spirt in the Sky” by Norman GreenBaum)
I wanna go to the spirit in the sky.
Don’t wanna smoke I wanna shine if I die.

If they should lay me down to rest,
I wanna go to the place that’s the best

Recommend me to the spirit in the sky, Lord
Recommend me to the spirit in the sky
Recommend me to the spirit in the sky, Lord
Be my friend and recommend me, yeah!

I wanna be where you are.
I pray the Lambs Book of life
inks my name by the One
who was slain.

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Death Buster
DEATH BUSTER Lyrics by AlfonZo Rachel and Todd Stevens

VERSE 1 (AR)
I stepped down from a proper crown-
for a diadem of thorns.
From shouts of light shaking praise-
to shouts of cursing and scorn.
No draft exemption for this royalty.
Deployed to the front to be a casualty.
The spikes that they used for my crucifixion
became my weapons in Hell on my rescue mission

PRE-CHORUS (AR)
I took on death with My hands nailed down.
And further handicapped by being so bled out.
Dropped death with a right cross
and crossed back over his body.
Knocked out by the wounded hand of God.

CHORUS (AR)
I’ll take your best shot?
Is death the best you’ve got?
You crossed the wrong individual.
I’m invincible.
Gave up My last breath
and still defeated death.
Crossed into Hades and
back like boss yeah,
(2nd resolve) For my bride and reprisal.

VERSE 2 (AR)
I’m the Priest and the Grave Robber.
I stepped in the house of death and he got clobbered.
I looted his house and snatched up his trophies.
Making short of his sport on what’s in the image of Me.
I straight kicked down the gate,
and kicked demons in the face.
I manhandled Hades in his own place.
On a rescue mission -
a campaign of blood and grace.

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS AND CHORUS

BRIDGE (TS)
Now can you see Me?
Can you see Me reaching for you?
Do you hear Me?
Do you hear Me speaking to you?
Do you feel Me?
Does your heart feel I’m true?
I hope that you do.
The scenario is changing really soon.
The scenario is changing.
The scenario is changing really soon.
Eternal life or eternal doom.

VERSE 3 (TS)
Now I hope you know Who I Am.
This wicked world will see Me once again.
The first time I came with kind intent.
The next time it’s gonna be violent.
So pick a side. I hope that you pick well.
I know you think the hardest come from Hell.
But you’re gonna see it in the sky one day;
the sword that I wield when i come to slay.

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS AND CHORUS
Track Name: Trauma Sutra
TRAUMA SUTRA

VERSE
There ain’t no excuse
I don’t care if you think she’s loose.
I don’t care how many drinks you bought ‘er.
That girl you’re creepin’ on is somebody’s daughter
I know she’s doing it the wrong way
a flirty short skirty on parade-
she’s got you in a daze.
The more your money and wine flows the more ya feel owed.
She better not say no.

VERSE INTERLUDE
I’m about to make your nightmares come true.
I brought you to Hell for the honey moon.
I know you’re not the bride and I’m not the groom.
Don’t deny it. White’s not your color anyway.
(Alternate resolve) But don’t you fight it. Just be quiet.

PRE-CHORUS
It doesn’t matter if she’s thirty or three.
A man doesn’t try to take her dignity.
Passed out drunk or if it’s trafficking.
Don’t cross the line or else you’re gonna be found-

CHORUS
- guilty of trauma sutra.
If I had my way fool, I’d shoot ya.
I need the strength of the Lord to not hate ‘em.
But can I borrow the gavel to castrate ‘em.
(Second resolve) God’s got love for you, but not for what you do.
Wicked desires get you thrown in the fire.



VERSE 2
Your make up and your hair.
The clothes that you wear.
The way that you smell.
As far as he can tell-
you’re giving him the signs,
and he’s made up his mind.
He will not be denied
rejection is the only crime.
She wears more make-up than she wears clothes.
she does it for attention and she’s got him by the nose.
She’s got a right to be wrong,
but you gotta be strong.
Break that spell.
don’t go to jail.

REPEAT INTERLUDE VERSE, PRE-CHORUS, CHORUS

BRIDGE
The Trauma Sutra’s for the wicked and the weak, sucka.
Think about it. The pleasure that you get is for a moment
but you’re victim’s pain will last them for life.

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Electric Exodus
ELECTRIC EXODUS Lyrics by AlfonZo Rachel and Todd Stevens

VERSE 1 (AR)
He’s go the whole world in His hands,
but it feels like we fell through the holes where there were nails.
When I feel I’m sinking down - like Peter weighed down with doubt.
I remember the Power that parted the water to lead His people out.

VERSE REFRAIN (AR)
I resolve to trust Who gave life to dust.
To get us off the hook He got on the cross for us.
(Second resolve)
The King is Risen to bust us out of Prison. Go!

REFRAIN PRE-CHORUS SEGUE (AR)
Apocalypse. It’s gonna be a jail break.
Truth and Feedom is revealed.

PRE-CHORUS (AR)
(You are)
The Freedom from Egypt and-
(You are)
The Freedom from Babylon.
Ransom the flock out of bondage
when death comes to take us hostage.
(2nd Resolve)
In God we Trust for the Electric Exodus.

CHORUS (AR)
Electric Exodus.
Take us up before the wrath comes down.
Electric Exodus.
In a flash the flock will leave the ground.
Elected to be no longer Hell-bound.
VERSE 2 (AR)
Which way is up?
Which way is out?
Which way is in?
Up with the King.
Out from the prison.
Into the Kingdom.
You Dig?
Part the sky like the water,
and lead us over gravity-
from Egypt to eternity.
Let’s blow this joint.

REPEAT VERSE REFRAIN, REFRAIN PRE-CHORUS SEGUE, PRE-CHORUS, CHORUS

BRIDGE (TS)
Eyes open.
Ears open.
Illuminate. In every way we’ve got our
(EYES OPEN)
Speak - we want all the words you say. We’ve got our

Strangers and pilgrims

Are called in election.

This pain and suffering -
we will see You as You are.

Track Name: XLSSBPB
XLSSBPB

VERSE 1
Dragon on my left arm-
tiger on the right.
Branded with a cauldron-
marked for life.
Burned in the flesh of my iron sleeve-
secret techniques of the highest degree.
Be warned by the tatts that are on display.
The end of my arm is a hand grenade.
I’m a peaceful guy with a poison touch-
to make your bones pour out your butt.

PRE-CHORUS
I got a mind for peace-
a body for war.
Cross me once you won’t do it no more.
You thought you were fast, sir,
but I was faster.
now talk to the hand of the master blaster.

CHORUS
Xiao Lin Super Secret Buddha Palm Blaster
Punishing hand of the Kung Fu Master.
A blow to the body spells disaster.
Cause mud butt is what’s comin’ after.

You ain’t dealing’ with the Sho Gun of Harlem.
Can I get a witness?
Sho Nuff!

VERSE 2
Blessed are the peace makers.
Cursed are the peace takers.
Leave me be in peace -
or limp away with your pride in pieces.
I turned the other cheek.
I tried to be nice.
Ya took another swing and ya paid the price.
My splashing hands cause splatty pants.
Now change your ways with your draws’.

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS AND CHORUS

BRIDGE
Don’t say I didn’t warn ya.

INTERLUDE
Like a rapid decompression make you fold
Stand down now or you won’t make it to the bowl.
un-ball your fist before you get hurt
Cause I can see your heart beat through your shirt.
The name of the Lord is the name to remember-
That makes demons sweat in the frost of December.
My Buddha palm still belongs to the Lord.
To defend the peace and the truth when the wicked bring war.

Track Name: A Waltz In grAy Minor
A WALTZ IN GRAY MINOR Lyrics by AlfonZo Rachel and Todd Stevens

VERSE 1 (AR)
You’re going in circles.
You’ve been down this road before.
Never leaving the revolving door.
Always wanting revolution but
revolving 'round the same ideals.
Unify, Under one idea or die.
Forget yourself and diversify.
See the rainbow in gray,
But never see in black and white.

CHORUS (AR)
It's celebration of diversity.
Just as long as you think like me.
Always thinkin' you have a new and better way.
'Round in circles with a waltz in gray.

SUB-CHORUS (AR)
Here we go again.
Waltzing through the gray.

VERSE 2 (AR)
Here we go again.
Makin' it law to be ruled by sin.
We all lose win the selfish win.
Believing freedom is the liberty
to make others forfeit theirs.
You defy the law of nature and live by lies-
that your twisted world view should be mine.
Behind the rainbow is conformity-
Utopian diversity binds.

REPEAT CHORUS and SUB-CHORUS

INTERLUDE (AR/TS)
Let go and conform.
Let go and comply.
Free your mind.
Now you’re mine.

BRIDGE (AR)
Waltz in the gray area.
Believe in no absolutes.
Round and round chasing the air.
Demanding proof. rejecting truth.
Make policy in vertigo.
Spin the people out of self control,
and they feel empowered-
Twisted in chains.

REPEAT CHORUS and SUB-CHORUS
Track Name: Priests Of Chaotica
PRIESTS OF CHAOTICA Lyrics by AlfonZo Rachel
VERSE 1-A
I question if the revelation won’t be televised.
Prime time riots with an invitation to join the party.
It doesn’t matter which way you turn the Tv Dial.
The channels turn to the left -
Brain-washing with style.

VERSE REFRAIN
Relentless propoganda=
of prejudice and slander.
Promoters of confusion.
Unity in Dissolution.

VERSE 1-B
Sucker the masses into voting out their liberty.
Tell them they’re victims owed fairness and security.
Push the signal ’til they snap on their community.
Then blame the gun when they’re the ones who lacked civility.

PRE-CHORUS
Prince and the power of the air.
Broadcasting signals everywhere.
The industry meant to entertain-
are the priests in the service of the one who blames.
Selah. Yeah.

CHORUS
It’s so sensational.
The reactional spectacle.
Addicted to the fiction
that causes the friction.
We have ignition.
Now watch it burn.

VERSE 2
The Tv anchor’s hardly anchored in reality.
They’re not reporters. They’re a ministry of incendiaries.
make the people burn with anger and hate.
Manipulate, instigate. Low attempts to make your ratings great.

REPEAT VERSE REFRAIN, PRE-CHORUS, CHORUS

BRIDGE
They preach reality like they’ve got a stronger claim on it.
Those drugged out celebrities spend their money to escape from it.
Damaged idols are the darlings of the public that are looked up to.
Blind leading the blind away from truth.
Truth resisted.
Cast your spell like witches.
Brew the caustic propaganda.
Chaos fueled by slander.

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Club Dead Waker
CLUB DEAD WAKER Lyrics by Todd Stevens and AlfonZo Rachel

VERSE 1 (TS)
Get up and get down yo we’re the ones that do this right.
We’re at the club.-Still don’t need no drugs we shining bright.
Jump up and down feet off the ground feeling electric.
We’re getting crazy but Baby ain’t nothin hectic - naw
The roof is on fire. It’s burning Holy Ghost ignited.
Wicked must retire cause yo no evil is invited.
We got our lamps full of oil and we ready to light it.
Blink of an eye party in the sky let’s get excited.

PRE-CHORUS (TS)

The temperature is burning hot
Burning off the impurities till love is all we got Go!

SUB-CHORUS (AR)
The King is on His way.He could be here any day.
So dance like David drunk with joy!

VERSE 2 (TS)
Dance your way through trials and tribulation.
Dance your way through sorrow and frustration
Dance today like you’re dancing on those streets of gold.
Don’t delay. Dance like Jesus Christ has saved your soul.
It’s the dead club waker-
the lost soul shaker-
the new life shaper get your party on!
It’s the fallow ground breaker-
8 richter earthquaker.
REPEAT PRE-CHORUS
(Add)
Drive
We moving faster than the speed of light
Strive
Until we make it to eternal life

BRIDGE (TS)
Can’t you see us rising
Don’t you see us shining
God made us something electric
Supernaturally egocentric
It’s the club dead waker
The universe shaker
The redeemed soul taker to the God of all gods

The AFTER PARTY Lyrics by AlfonZo Rachel and Todd Stevens

VERSE 1 (AR)
Through all the trials-
and tribulations-
I know ya really want a break-
and prob'ly thinkin' I'm just taking my time-
or just a fake.
Cause if I'm really Good with Power-

Where tears will never ever cross your face.
Just call on me.
Cause I'm the Way the Truth and Life-
and I can set you free.

So get your hands in the air.
Wave 'em like you don't care.
Pump your fist to be on the list,
and I'll take you there!

CHORUS (AR)
I want your mind,
and I want your body.
I want your soul.
It's me or Sheol if you wanna live.
I went to hell and back, yeah, just to hook you up with that.
(I took on the toll so you can live and live again)

SUB-CHORUS (AR)
I got the wine that gets ya lifted to the after party.
I got the wine that brings the sunshine through the rain.
I got the wine that gets ya lifted to Me.
I'm your Host.
I'm your Ghost.
Drinks on me,
but just believe
I went to hell and back, yeah, just to hook you up with that.

VERSE 2 (TS)
Move! Now don’t complain.
Cause I am strong when you are weak.
I’ve carried you. Now get up on your feet,
let’s go we’ve got a mission.
There’s an army of wounded soldiers.
They need care. Do all I’ve told you - Just trust,
cause I’m with you always.
Be my hands and be my feet, no I don’t need you but I want you to be-
A light for the lost -
to lead em to the promise land I want so many to come in.
