Track Name: The Beginning
I am overwhelmed by the things you made
The unexpectedness of that which exist
there's so much movement there's so much light
there's so much glory there's so much life

there's a light in the sound
in the sound that you made
your light is everywhere

now there is a seed
life from life
the formless has been shaped
could I be a part of that which you made
early in the morning
I feel the pull
rushing though my body
working into my mind there is life I am alive

there is a sound
in the light you made
your light is everywhere
your light is everywhere
I see the signs
of the Spirit of life
I see those seeds
springing up in me

the only action I can take
is the lift my voice in praise
the only honest response
is an overwhelming awe

there is a sound
in the light you made
your light is everywhere
your light is everywhere
I see the signs
of the Spirit of life
I see those seeds
springing up in me
there's so much movement
there's so much light
there's so much glory
there's so much life

I saw a thousand specks of light
dancing in the yard
could I be one of them
could I be a part of this life
I have the perfect love and she is perfect for me
she saw five thousand birds in the sky
five thousand specks of light

now that I am here
in this place
what am I to do
with this life with this life

I am overwhelmed by the things you made
the unexpectedness of that which exist
there's so much movement there's so much light
there's so much glory there's so much life
Track Name: Seventy Years Of Disappointment
pretending like this place can satisfy
that I fill the unending longing
pour it in, it all comes out again
all my bags are full of holes
now that he's made everything there is
let's turn something into him
how could the made be greater than the one
a speck of light greater than the sun

I won't forget
I don't want to forget
oh help me not forget
oh please help me

see them there bringing the gold
they thought he's gone cast it to a bull
even though it just came to exist
give it glory for our past deliverance
the world is full of insufficient gods
acting like they weren't made just like us
every heart has an alter
every alter has its god
the universe isn't nearly big enough
in that room it's only a speck of dust

should we all tear out the words on the page
if we can't understand what they say
it's not the thing itself it means something's real
it's not the thing itself it means something's real
you can't hold on to the shadows
when your hands are empty then you'll know
it's not the thing itself it means something's real
it's not the thing itself it means something's real

I won't forget
I don't want to forget
oh help me not forget
oh please help me

my hands will not be raised
I will not give you my praise
this world is not my truth
I will not worship you
(the clay was dug up from the ground
they turned it into the making of the light and sound
but it is no God it is not God)

there is one who is worthy
now I know it's not this place it's not me
who is this maker of light and sound

should we all tear out the words on the page
if we can't understand what they say
it's not the thing itself it means something's real
it's not the thing itself it means something's real
you can't hold on to the shadows
when your hands are empty then you'll know
it's not the thing itself it means something's real
it's not the thing itself it means something's real
what does this place mean
how can I be alive
what does this place mean
if it's not the true life

you ask me to join you
hanging in the sky
with holes in my hands
dying to this world and life
our bodies in the earth
you shared your space with me
behind the rock I wait
our bodies are asleep
will you take me with you
when the stone is rolled away
now you are exalted
but will you have me wait
Track Name: The Story Of The Dying Seed
how could I ever believe
seeing the grandeur of this place
think this place was made for me
how could I ever believe
being born into this place
I'm not just a created being
when the the world does not conform
to my every whim I feel betrayed
because you are not listening
even when I was a baby
I laid claim with my cries
to the lordship of my life
I saw the setting and setting
and said this place was made for me
it turns out I am just the scenery

I have finally realized
it was never in your plan
to keep me alive
how could I boast and brag
about that
which you already laid down in death
I have finally realized
all the glory that's in me
is only your glory
all that I am all that I own
its got to be destroyed
come tear down this godless thrown

I have been living like a thief
on the things you made
you've given me it all
but I still try to take

what is there that isn't yours

I don't want to claim
your gifts as my own
I have never made a thing
only borrowed

What is there that isn't yours

I was born without a thing
I will die empty
what do I have that I can claim
there is nothing to my name

I have finally realized
it was never in your plan
to keep me alive
how could I boast and brag
about that
which you already laid down in death
I have finally realized
all the glory that's in me
is only your glory
all that I am all that I own
its got to be destroyed
come tear down this godless thrown

when I see your glory
I'll be on the ground
when you arrive
all my fake independence dies
I can see my nothingness
in the glory of your all
Track Name: The End For Which The World Was Made
behold here he comes
behold he is here
so gentle and strong
blessed be his name

all the other kings
are only faking it
and on that day
everyone will know
all the other lords
are only just pretending
and on that day
everyone will know

behold this is the one
that made the light and sound
the king of glory
God's first born son

all the other kings
are only faking it
and on that day
every one will know
all the other lords
are only just pretending
and one that day
every one will know

you're the movement
you're the light
you're the glory
you're the life

in the light of your glory
I've finally realize
what this place means
who I am the purpose of every human being
in the light of your glory
all my questions melt away
and I know the one thing
the only thing I need
it's not this place it's not me
now I know you alone are reality

it's always been
always will be
from beginning to the end
from beginning to the end
it's your glory
(you're the movement
you're the light
you're the glory
you're the life)
