Funeral for the Flesh (album)

1 January, 2005, Independent, CD
 6 September, 2008, Independent, Digital, link expired

1) Funeral for the Flesh
5:38, instrumental

2) Speak to Him
5:41, lyrics:
Speak to Him when nothing seems right
Speak to Him when darkness outshines light
Speak to Him in the morning's dawning light
Speak to Him in your darkest of your times

Speak to Him
Speak His name
Through the rain
And the pain
He'll clear the darkness

Lean on Him when friend seems like foe
Lean on Him when pain is all you know
Speak to Him when betrayal makes you sin
Lean on Him in the darkest of your times

Speak to Him
Speak His name
Through the rain
And the pain
He'll clear the darkness

Not against flesh but against evil
(Repeat)


3) God My Savior
3:31, lyrics:
Once in the night
A vision so bright
God of twilight heavenly
A spirit spoke to me
Telling me how to be holy, holy

God my Savior
Constant companion
God my Savior
Constant companion
Darkness surrounding me
How could this be holy, holy
Across myself I see
A vision how to be holy, holy

God my Savior
Constant companion
God my Savior
Constant companion
(Repeat)


4) Heaven
10:03, lyrics:
In this world you're beaten
Forgotten, insulted
Your best friend is no friend
World nothing best forgotten

Heaven on my mind
This earth I leave behind
A soul so abused
From the earthly and confused

A sure Hell
A dark well
Where there is no love
On earth well
A bad smell
Desire wanting
All will kill
For their own hill

Heaven on my mind
This earth I leave behind
A soul so abused
From the earthly and confused

All for one
And for none
Why should we even see
Our evil towards others
Why God would even care?

Heaven on my mind
This earth I leave behind
A soul so abused
From the earthly and confused

Soul torture a lesson
On those who don't even care
A warning for mourning
This waste I call human life

Heaven on my mind
This earth I leave behind
A soul so abused
From the earthly and confused

You're born to earth, destined to suffer
You're left with only pain and shame
You live alone, you'll die alone
Where is God in this unholy rain?
Light in darkness, the holy one
In the storm is where God is truly heard
A gift of God, His holy Son
Let His word shine boldly and bright
Darkness in humans of deadly thoughts
Misery sin is what it bought
Human suffering a disturbing sight
When unholy men fall it brings delight
Darkness and greed is sin's friend
A devil destroying hellish fiend
Come to God, share His word
For holiness lived is life's reward

Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy
(Repeat)


5) Death to Satan
5:11, lyrics:
Light becomes victory in the darkness of night
Where holy visions take heavenly flight
The devil can no longer lie and steal
The Lord beat him on the holy hill (Golgotha)
Come to the Lord and I know you'll see
The devil's defeat and total victory
Where shadows and darkness
No longer have their place
And evil ends in misery

In comes the evil I can surely feel
The allure of darkness has its appeal
From bloodstain hands, the sign of the cross
I realize I'm not lost
The devil lies, cheats, and steals
Everything around him he will try to kill
Know in your heart he's a defeated foe
Let the Lord tell you where your feet should go

Death to Satan

Look to the suffering on the holy cross (Calvary)
Where death and disease are truly lost
To the pain of this life, from the cradle to the grave
It's Lord Jesus who truly saves, why don't you believe
When He's calling your name
That God is your only claim to fame,
The rule of the wicked no longer has its day
The Lord is here, He's here to stay

Up from the apocalypse called this world
From ashes to glory in the blink of an eye
Know that God is on your side in Him
You should truly hide, take it from God
God who knows the beginning and the purpose
Of those who obey His word and the holy cross
Not like waves blown thrown and tossed

Death to Satan


6) Ends of the Earth
7:14, lyrics:
Father in Heaven
I'm falling, crawling
Father in Heaven
I'm fainting, waiting

I'll be there till the ends of the earth
Till the ends of the earth have faith and see
Till the ends of the earth

Darkness, heartless
Inhuman in its cruelty
Hell bound, in sin drown
Father, please help me now

Father in Heaven
I'm falling, crawling
Father in Heaven
I'm fainting, waiting

Father, Father
This I cry to the sky
Time has come for Your sons
To see You, to believe in You


7) Friend of Satan
9:17, lyrics:
Darkness, heartless
A liar, accuser
Murderer, a destroyer
Robs your will, a need to kill

Friend of Satan
A cold-blooded killer
Cares for no one
Loves no one
Loves to shame
Loves to blame
Feeds on all, one and all

Calls me a weakling
Dares me, taunts me
Pushes me backwards
To horror sorrow

Friend of Satan
A cold-blooded killer
Cares for no one
Loves no one
Loves to shame
Loves to blame
Feeds on all, one and all

Rapes me of dignity
Makes me hate me
Causes me to fall
God helps me stand tall

(Chorus)

Friend of Satan
A cold-blooded killer
Cares for no one
Loves no one
Loves to shame
Loves to blame
Feeds on all, one and all

Kill me, beat me
I will win, God said
Hate will fade
My pain will fade
Friend of Satan, you lose again

Friend of Satan
A cold-blooded killer
Cares for no one
Loves no one
Loves to shame
Loves to blame
Feeds on all, one and all

Darkness, heartless
A liar, accuser
Murderer, a destroyer
Robs your will, a need to kill

(Chorus)


8) Spiritual Warfare
7:09, lyrics:
Come alive in this unholy prison
Torn by devils, human devils
No love shown, and no love given
Stand in ruin, beaten and shattered

In the Bible, a word sent to thee
How to live amongst the enemy
And finally be free

Constant chaos, unholy chaos
Of those who hate man
Sworn hatred against man
Not living God, are holy God
Crave destruction, loving destruction

The word of God is a lethal weapon
That wins by spirit and not might
The powers of darkness will faint
In the heavenly light

All consumed by hatred
Unholy hatred live in damnation
Eternal damnation, driven by Satan
Love of Satan, you're deceived
In your disbelief
In the Bible, a word sent to thee
How to live amongst the enemy
And finally be free
Spiritual warfare
(Repeat)


9) Man's Black Hole
8:25, lyrics:
I don't care about anything
I don't care about anyone
God's word is far from me
Because I don't care about anything

In times man shown to me
His wicked selfish greed
His all about me
Lord, help me with disbelief
Restore Your word in thee
Refresh my soul
From man's black hole
Stay with me

I hate man, his thoughts, his plans
To me, he is the lowest of all
Should live in torment here in afterlife
Mankind is scum, lame, blind, dumb

Lord, help me see
This is no way to think
Lord, help me to believe
So I can be set free
From man's black hole
A deathly costly toll
Lord, help me see
The good in all beings
(Repeat)

Our Father in Heaven,
Hallowed be Your name
Your kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven
Give us today our daily bread
Forgive us our debts
As we also have forgiven our debtors
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from the evil one
For Yours is the kingdom
And the power and the glory
Forever. Amen.


10) Tears from God
10:05, instrumental

11) Most High
5:38, lyrics:
Pain and death, hate and misery
Is all I ever really see
Jesus please help me find my way
Through this human sinful decay

Through the haze I can barely see
Anything Jesus, that resembles Thee
Unholy and inhuman is the call today
Where murder and hatred is so easily obeyed

Somewhere to hide
In You I confide
In the place of the most high
The peace inside

Now the struggle between good and evil
Where wise men listen and wicked men ponder
Life's a choice and good men prosper
The deeds of the wicked should not go unpunished

Hide, if you can, from the holy Lord
Some things are so easily sworn
Your wicked fate has caught up to you
Now into the fire, to Hell with you

Somewhere to hide
In You I confide
In the place of the most high
The peace inside





Steps (album)

1 January, 2006, Independent, CD
 6 September, 2008, Independent, Digital, link expired

1) Something in October
00:41, instrumental

2) Forgive
9:00, lyrics:
Can you forgive
Can you forgive
An insult of another
Can you forgive the
Pain of another
Or will you fall
From years of abuse
Or will you stand a
Warrior of Jesus
An empty shell is what
You'll find in others
A race towards death
A victim of confusion
A useless sick joke
A total waste of life
Prepare for time total
Mental frustration
(Chorus)
To forgive is to also
Forget a disobedient soul
At their total best the
Pain they hope to try to
Inflict is their pain inside themselves
They try to neglect
A soul always seeing but never learning,
A life in them and not
Someone else, try to kill or
Try to deny the word of God
They truly deny
Can you forgive the hate of others
Can you forgive the unholy rulers
Who make their plans for total destruction
Who make their lives dark and overrated
A world of hate
Of total isolation
A world of death in sins
Hall of fame
From man's own heart
A flaming hating
Dart extinguished by God's love
For one and all
(Chorus)


3) Sounds of the Cross
9:19, lyrics:
Unforeseen chaos a world meant
To be evil desires a man and his dream

Form this day forward there shall be no release
The cross showed earth's terror and man's disbelief

Wretched and burning man's own heart from his thoughts
He's torn all but apart

Form this day forward there shall be no release
The cross showed earth's terror and man's disbelief

A vulture and its prey is calling you
Today to devour and betray your heart
And your soul

Form this day forward there shall be no release
The cross showed earth's terror and man's disbelief

Jesus (8x)


4) Pain (Eternal Internal)
10:25, lyrics:
Man's opinion is meaningless
A lying tongue that will beat you into dust

Don't care
You're lying
Don't care
Keep trying
Don't care
Self-serving
Don't care

Undeserving a photograph in history
Is the picture you have made up of thee
God has said that if I believe
The picture you have will be your deceit

Don't care
Receiving
Don't care
Eternal
Don't care
Pain unyielding
Don't care

Hate welding time to shift this hate of mine
To delude some space to shift time

Don't care
Eternal
Don't care
Internal
Don't care
Infernal
Stay in holy darkness
Pain, eternal, infernal


5) The Murdering of One's Faith
6:10, instrumental

6) Steps
8:44, lyrics
How could you be so low torture torture from
This lying saw me in half behind my back wearing a mask

Steps you take are glory divine
Take a step outside
Test your faith and see
Faith does not slave but frees
You're a hellhole, vengeful, frightful
Knock me down without a sound,
Tell me you love me tear me down,
Hate me, betray me

Steps you take are glory divine
Take a step outside
Test your faith and see
Faith does not slave but frees

You'll tear me down, sucked in by your words
Laid to waste, you're a waste
Jesus says to love
Come on, you will see that love sets you free, free

Steps you take are glory divine
Take a step outside
Test your faith and see
Faith does not slave but frees
One way to see is we're all dead
All dead words from beings means nothing
A waste of time
Time to die
You'll tear me down




 Summer of Murders (album)

12 April, 2008, Independent, CD
6 September, 2008, Independent, Digital, link expired

1) Summer of Murders (Intro)
00:54, instrumental

2) War Within
9:36, lyrics:
From this struggle, deep within isolation
Darkness to find, winner or loser, both will destroy you
Smacked from your hand to live in a lonely lie
From now you see the pain, so sick
So now you see the pain, so sick

The war within
You couldn't win if you even tried
The war within
They'll kill you if you even try

Your words are refreshing, warming, healing
A place to hide, a word to hide, in times of trouble
In times of trouble the world is deaf, no one cares
No one is left

Kill the pain, in the brain

Take a spiritual axe and slash away in prayer
You'll find answers along the way
Don't think you can do anything in your own strength, my friend
You'll just find more pain in the end
The war within


3) Drowning in Shame
10:06, lyrics:
Here again, this time today, scars remain from yesterdays
Deep in this tunnel, a bursted bubble, twisted visions
A haunted prison, soul torture, deep within a common
Ground for Hell and misery, tell me what you see, far
Beneath the sea, twisted souls, for death's grand toll

Drowning in shame

So lifeless, Jesus I wonder, can this life be so over
Immortal treason, a soul out of season, no use in
Reaching others on skin leaching thoughtless
Fearless, a soul uncaring, no reason, a taker deep
Within the mind, visions come to find the human
Feed on you indeed

Drowning in shame


4) Through the Eyes of the Rejected
6:41, instrumental

5) He Remains
4:57, lyrics:
For so long I say I need you, living a life that's so much
Beneath you, the hate, the pain, the sickness of sin all along
You're allowing me to win, a lost man, a victim of lies with
No man, I have no ties, I know how you feel when I look in your
Eyes, it's truly me the one you despise
Jesus, You remain
Through my pain
Everyday, every way

All day long I'm belittled and beaten, outcast, Jesus I need You
Falling from the sky onto the concrete, a room full of people
Without my own seat, how can a man be so selective? Is it me who's
Not understanding? Jesus, heal my dying weakness, in You is where I find forgiveness
Help me! Save me!
From the pain, our pain
Help me! Save me!
From the pain, my own pain


6) The Death of Me
8:27, lyrics:
For long been scarred, in pain I tear
A soul abused, a world confused

Had enough of you, had enough of pain
had enough of shame, had enough of rain
Time's come to try, time's come enjoy
Time's come to stay, time's come in pain

Boiled in oil, punched, lied, beaten
By the defeated I stay defeated
There's no justice, blind injustice
You'll stand ruined, paranoid delusions

You'll stay awake, in dark you're saved
No real solution, no retribution

For the death of me, pain and death I wreak
For the death of me, death is all I'll be
For long been scarred, in pain I tear
A soul abused, a world confused


Had enough of you, had enough of pain
had enough of shame, had enough of rain
Time's come to try, time's come enjoy
Time's come to stay, time's come in pain

Walk alone, souls healing

Boiled in oil, punched, lied, beaten
By the defeated I stay defeated
There's no justice, blind injustice
You'll stand ruined, paranoid delusions

For the death of me, pain and death I wreak
For the death of me, death is all I'll be


7) Pray for Death
9:30, lyrics:
Time of torture, time of pain, an ill reproach
Buried in shame, demons shifting; your skin
Is sweating from this life, hidden knives always
Threatening, never quitting, one by one, the demon
Calling; it's kill or be killed, is this all we've learned?
God would say this is wrong, time is spent underground
Cry for help, no one is around, one to reach out for a
Friend to find, everyone has left you for dead, the same
song lives on, somehow try to belong, from times darkness
Is a friend, stare at a wall, till the end

People can't love, they have to be number 1, you're just in
The way they'll throw you away, it's use and be used
Know your role in disgrace, forgotten, displaced, are
You better off alone, or punch drunken and loved?
From evil men with hate as a plan
Pray for death, hope for life

Time of torture, time of pain, an ill reproach
Buried in shame, demons shifting; your skin
Is sweating from this life, hidden knives always
Threatening, never quitting, one by one, the demon
Calling; time to cry out, scream, not shout, from your
Pain, ill refrain; pray for death, hope for life


8) Victim Mentality
00:53, instrumental




Another CD was planned as of 21 October, 2011, to be called "Fire Axe", but I don't know if this album was ever released.

Images that could use better res/quality: Funeral for the Flesh, Summer of Murders
Uncertain info: 1) Was "Fire Axe" ever released? 2) Why is the back artwork for "Funeral for the Flesh" rectangular, like a cassette, when it was released on CD?




Also, an image I found online from the guy who designed their logo, Dohgrafar
