Track Name: Tidal Force
Oh, God, let something rise out of the dust of my affliction
Oh, God, that's a big price from the wake of my resurrection
I behold an incredible truth
The spirit of poverty is close

Whatever structure I build, comes crashing to the earth
In weakness is when you are clear

Groveling in the dark, broken knuckles
You do not lift me up but embrace me there
I move to ascend but my arms give way
I remain filthy but you weep with me there

How beautiful a contraption that you have built
Intricate framework, disciplined object, work of love
But I see the coming hurricane
A tidal force that will break all the strength of nations

I reject the posture of upward ascendance
If dirt is my home, home it will be

Oh, God, let something rise out of the dust of my affliction
Oh, God, that's a big price from the wake of my resurrection
Track Name: Idle Hands
When time is our currency,
How can you lack urgency?
Inhale complacency,
Exhale apathy.
You feel free when you embrace the idolatry
But your mind is caged by the lies that you cling to
Just keep telling yourself, you won't unwind.
It won't get the best of you.
You're not like the rest.
It's not as simple as it used to be.
It's time to step up 2x
We become who we choose to be.
Daily, redefined by your choices.
You are always changing,
So who will you choose to be today?
As the clock ticks onward,
we walk in obscurity.
Plagued by uncertainty
The future looms above your head,
You question everyone and everything.
But there is truth unending and joy fulfilling.
Beyond the ways of the world, there is hope.
You are more than flesh and blood.
So tell me, what makes this life worth living?
You've got to know
Your purpose is waiting just on the horizon.
Everything happens for a reason
There's no such thing as an accident.
Idle hands do the devil's work,
So take a stand
