So can you feel their sound reach up from the ground
wrapping hands around your legs, make you slave,
and keep you shackled down.
House of the Ouja board floor, cracks with the name of the Lord,
He sent us in to get you jumpin' with something stronger than sin.
We've got the sound to make you twist. Feel the sweat in your fist.
Let the fuse be your spine, lit to blow your mind.
Called by the Almighty to fight the third, and draw our strength from the throne,
Demons feel my hands around their necks when I grip the microphone.

You say you want change, but you want to stay the same.
Try dropping your weapons and dropping that ego when we drop His name.
But you want to hide from the One, barackading yourself from the Son
Who Doesn't come to enslave but to save everyone.

It's alright. Drop your weapons and get your hands up.

He's offering you freedom, and offering you light.
He's offering the peace and joy that you could never buy.
Just turn your guns on the demons who have lied.
And told you that He's not the way, not the Truth, and not the Life.

We swing that gravity with the quickness when we hit this,
I got you jumpin' cause it's my gift, and it's my sickness.
Avenging angels of the Disco, Apocalypso,
Makin' lungs collapse and breakin' them backs with sonic body blows.
Demons catch a beat down, when the King comes to town.
We load our music with His message then we turn this mutha out.
with bombastic delivery, auditory autilary, pumpin’ round after round,
Like I want the NRA to be proud of me.


You look like your chained up.
You could use a change up.
Give your pain and angst up.
Speak His name up!
Speak His name like you're not afraid
If you think you're harder than you really are
Speak His name unafraid.
It doesn't make you weak to love the One Who bore the cross.
You say you want the truth but you accept the lie, reject the sacrifice,
of such a Nice Guy.
He didn't come to judge but to give you love, and pay your way to the sky,
Which is the limit of your life.
Non believers follow the deceiver weather they believe in the deceiver or not.
Don't let him cheat you of the mysteries, only the King can reveal, know the deal
and throw your hands up!
