Temple of the Spirit
(Lyrics: Waters, Music: Gutierrez, Griego)

Discard your priestly robes, put on sackcloth.
Repent of evil ways, don't ever stop.
Come before the throne of grace, bow to Deity,
for you're set apart for worship of His Majesty.

No need to go to some sacred hall,
God doesn't dwell there, behind stone walls.
No need to run to the priest to pray,
for in your body is His dwelling place.

Torn in two, the curtain falls. The Spirit's Temple, inside us all.
The temple veil now split in two. Ushered his presence,
Inside of Temple of, Temple of the Spirit

Lift up your holy hands down on your knees,
in supplication, He'll hear you plea.
Acquanted with suffering, (was) tempted as we are,
our mediator Jesus the Lord.

Torn in two, the curtain falls. The Spiritís Temple, inside us all.
The temple veil now split in two. Ushered his presence,
Inside of Temple of, Temple of the Spirit.

(Acts 17:24)

The Greed Regime, Inc.
(Lyrics: Waters, Music: Gutierrez, Griego, Trujillo)

Get what you can get while the gettingís gotten good.
Command your god machine today, greeds are understood.
Believe you shall, believe I must, in faith I put my trust.
Cosmic jeanie in the sky, itís riches that I lust.
Faith...in Greed...in Lust...in Lies

Healing it is guaranteed if you give today.
Your god machine is powerless unless you plant your seed.
The suffering lack in faith in their sins they will burn
as I sit in luxury with the gifts that I have earned.
Faith...in Greed...in Lust...in Lies

Greed Regime it wants you now, promises you gold
Greed Regime Calls you in, if youíll sell you soul
The Greed Regime it gives to get, religion for a dream
A Cultic Scheme Is calling out, Indulgence is my name.

Like Robin Hood of old, but in the opposite,
steel from the poor to get rich and buy expensive cars.
I'll feed of their needs and insecurities.
Increase in your faith when you give your cash to me.

Just think about your faith my friend,who do you put it in?
Do you love for what you get or just for who He is?
Can we reduce Almighty God to (an) indulgent Santa ClausE?
Jehovah God will not be mocked, He doesn't live by our laws!

(Gal. 6:7-8, KJV)

Warlord's Sword
(Lyrics: Waters, Music: Gutierrez, Griego)

Sacred steel, the blazing sword, the swift two edged blade.
At the hands of the LORD, will pierce the caverns of your soul.
Bring's conviction, bleeds the sin, cuts you to the core.
Reveals the darkness of your heart, and points you to the LORD.

Warlordís Sword/The Word of Truth,
Wars against the flesh.
Warlordís Sword/The Spirit's Call,
Put's you to the very test

Crafted perfect in every way, no flaw is found within.
Tested in the fires of time, the opposition cannot win.
Stronger than steel and forged by God, for the battles we must fight.
Waging war upon the flesh, His ways are always right.

Declaring war on His Word, with truth they have their fight.
Wisdom calls but can they hear?
Who can battle with His might?
For by the Word we shall live or by it we shall die.
Will you join the Warlord's side, or will it you despise.

The Purging
(Lyrics: Waters, Music: Gutierrez, Griego, Trujillo, Michaels)

Bring me into your awesome presence. Forgive my shameful iniquity.
You alone are my firm foundation. You alone can deliver me.
I stand before you alone and naked. My life reads like a book to thee.
You alone gave your Son to save me. You alone have washed me clean.

Purged with blood ridding me of impurities
Refinded with fire of your Spirit for eternity
Rejoice in trials knowing you'll be there for me
I'm purged in blood ridding me of inpurities.

I lay my pride down before your alter. I stand accused and I plead guilty.
You alone are my Judge, my Jury. You alone have set me free.
My life is empty without your presence. Your Spirit the earnest inside of me.
You alone are my God, my Savior. You alone are purging me

For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone. Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name. I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore. For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell. (Psalms 86:10-13)

Bring me into your awesome presence. Forgive my shameful iniquity.
You alone are my firm foundation. You alone can deliver me.
I stand before you alone and naked. My life reads like a book to thee.
You alone gave your Son to save me You alone are purging me.

Shroud of Science
(Lyrics: Waters, Music: Gutierrez, Michaels, Griego)

Since when is reality limited
to your scientific claims; there are things that can't be seen.
Look around at the beauty around you.
We are not an accident, there is meaning to this life.

State theory as if it's fact,
dismissing creation as a myth, materialism is your kick.
Cold facts distorting the truth.
Fossil records donít hold up; Darwin's theory is a farce.

I am blinding. I am jaded. I am theory masked as fact.
I am blinding. I am jaded. All live underneath my shroud.
I am shroud of science. (4x)

Lost identity, results of the big lie.
Moral decay the consequence of a world that's meaningless.
Play the fool, professing to be wise.
The wisdom of this world is not, it's foolishness in God's eyes.

An explanantion:
And we wonder why people don't care about life. Why care when we are taught all our lives that we are but accidents of chance? Science can't explain spiritual things, therefore they totally dismiss it. Fact is it takes more faith to believe that life came from nothing than it does to believe that there is a Creator with a plan for your life! "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." (Gen. 1:1)

Perilous Times
(Lyrics: Waters, Music: Trujillo, Griego)

Look around my friend and tell me what you see.
A world of blind guides led by MTV.
Generation X is generation "me."
Self regard reigns in the land of the free.

Can't you see the end, the prophecies coming true.
Slick leaders bending & twisting the truth.
Lies become fact when you word them just right.
Corrupt deeds are hidden in the black of the night.

Perilous times, they are near. Hatred is rising, no need to fear.
Wheels are turning, set into gear. Perilous times, our hope is your fear.

The warning signs are present, time's drawing near.
Hatred grow bold, persecution begins.
Wars and rumors rage and death is all around.
Natural disaster and destruction abounds.

Ignorance is bliss, but not an excuse,
when all of the answers are found in The Book.
We'll all stand alone to give an account.
The sins of your heart are all laid out.

Burn
(Roger Martinez, Glen Rogers)
©1988 Broken Songs (ASCAP)

Originally recorded by Vengeance Rising. A classic track by one of the best and most aggressive metal bands from the late 80's. A song that we have been performing live for years, but never really considered recording, until we were bombarded with e-mails from people asking us to record it. So, here it is....BURRRNNN, satan, BURRRNNN.

MutaMitlu
(Gutierrez, Michaels, Griego)

instrumental

Crash Course
(Lyrics: Waters, Music: Gutierrez, Griego)

Living life like in reckless abandon,
ignoring the signs like lifeís just begun.
Eternity is a long time to place into the hands of chance.

So many asking, so many searching,
the truth is right before their eyes.
Life is but a small speck,
In a vast eternity, arise.

Crash Course with Eternity
Faced with the truth, c'mon what will it be
Crash course with Eternity
Life's not a game why can't you see

In an instant, life can change;
one minute your here then your gone.
Mortality is a short time but
Spiritual life will never die

I've said it before I'll say it a gain,
delay can be fatal, in the end.
In betweeners won't survive.
In a vast eternity, arise.

So it shall be, the end of the age,
angels shall come to separate,
sever the wicked from the just.
How much longer will He wait
'til his patience turns to wrath.
Eternally separated.
In a vast eternity, arise

Living life like in reckless abandon,
ignoring the signs like lifeís just begun.
Eternity is a long time to place into the hands of chance.
So many asking, so many searching,
the truth is right before your eyes.
Life is but a speck
in a vast eternity, arise.

Violence & Bloodshed
(Lyrics: Waters, Music: Gutierrez)

Who says you canít mix aggression with a message of faith.
Music is an expression, with that thereís no debate.
Why not sing of my faith, for it's what I live.
If you want message of violence,
I've got a one to give.

Violence & Bloodshed (4x)

Cold steel pierce through the hands,
blood spouts from the flesh,
hard wood rubs at the stripes from the whips to his back.
Gravity pulls down the body, lungs gasp for air.
Impaled and sentenced to die for the sins of man.

Violence & Bloodshed (4x)
Violence & Bloodshed, infliction & hurting,
death & the suffering of man.
For it is written no greater love exists than to lay down your life for a friend! (2x)

Is that violent enough for ya?

solo: Robert Gutierrez

Who says you can't mix aggression with a message of faith.
Music is an expression, with that thereís no debate.
Why not sing of my faith, for it what I live.
If you want message of violence,
I've got a one to give.
To those who try to mock us for that for which we do,
We will never back down for we know our message is true.
Screaming the ultimate music with real brutal truth
And if you want aggression and violence
I've got a message for you

Violence & Bloodshed (4x)
Violence & Bloodshed, infliction & hurting, death & the suffering of man.
For it is written no greater love exists than to lay down your life for a friend! (2x)
