Track Name: Love And Sacrifice
True war is not waged by shedding blood with our hands
But by living in love and making a stand
Against the corruption that is tainting man

We won’t give in to the hate staring us in the face every day
We won’t compromise to the ways staring us in the face every day

For too long now we have lived this way
Pointing the finger but we’re the ones to blame
As selfish as close minded
Boasting in ourselves, we live like we’re blinded

Can we be the change we want to see?
Are we able to go where others won’t care to be?
What difference does it make if we don’t look to see?
And reach out with this hope that we believe

What difference does it make if we don’t learn to love?
If we don’t care?
We can make an impact if we just stop judging

Retrace! Retrace
It’s time that we retrace
Face, face
The myriad of our mistakes
We are called to live a Better Way
Following the footsteps of the Greatest alive
On a path etched with purpose
May our lives reflect His Sacrifice

Can we be the change we want to see?
Are we able to go where others won’t care to be?
What difference does it make if we don’t look to see?
And reach out with this hope that we believe

If our faith doesn't change the way we live
The way we live is meaningless
If our faith doesn't change the way we live
The way we live is meaningless

Love and sacrifice
Love and sacrifice
Lord teach us how to live
Track Name: Rise Of The Devoted
I want to see the wayward sons and daughters come running home
I want to see the broken and the hurting find healing and hope
There is truth that outshines every lie
And freedom that can liberate every life

And I want to see an army arise
With fire in their eyes
Devotion to their Maker
That consumes their minds

I want to see the love of the Saviour invade every heart
And the power of His sacrifice rip strongholds apart
For there is truth that outshines every lie
And freedom that can liberate every life

And I want to see an army arise
With fire in their eyes
Devotion to their Maker
That consumes their minds
And I want to see an army arise
With fire in their eyes
Devotion to their Maker
That consumes their minds

I've only got this one life to give, so I lay it down
And it's because of You, I wanna make it count
I place my faith and trust in Your unfailing love
And I believe You can set this generation free

And I want to see an army arise
With fire in their eyes
And I want to see an army arise
With fire in their eyes
Devotion to their Maker
That consumes their minds

I want to see this army arise
I want to see this army arise

I believe, I believe

Devotion to their Maker
That consumes their minds
Track Name: Forge A Revolution
I've seen the darkness that is tainting this world
And I've felt its cold and choking grip round my throat
But I refuse to give in to the compromise I see
Lord save me from becoming a fallen casualty

Tear everything off that tries to cut me down
And kill the selfish greed that is dwelling inside of me
I realise I can’t do this on my own
Treading water gets you nowhere

Oh God
Forge a revolution in my heart
Forge a revolution in my heart
Forge a revolution in my heart

Let Your uprising take over in me
Teach me Your Way of Life, Come and breathe

This is my act of resistance
To live this life in love

There is so much that is grieving to see
So much wrong in this world that makes us bleed

But I know that there's Hope, and I fully believe
I can see a change, but it starts with me

Forge a revolution in my heart
Forge a revolution in my heart

Let your uprising take over in me
Teach me Your Way of Life, Come and breathe

This is my act of resistance
To live this life in love
This is my act of resistance
To live this life in love
Track Name: Cause Brings Effect
It carries on, so unrelenting
Tearing, burning, raging
There is no rest here
I have come to accept, what I've done, and where I stand

Looking inside, I see so much wrong
I want to throw it all away
But attempts to escape never cause the problems to fade

Cause brings effect and I’m the cause
I'm the cause, I'm the cause
Cause brings effect and I’m the cause
I'm the cause, I'm the cause

I’m the resting place of consequence
I have so much to answer for
Now gained is the realization
I've fallen so far short

I will never find the truth
Until I yield to You

There is only one way to be free
And as sure as the sun rises, it’s not found in me

How easily distraction clutches me
Trying to pull me down from the way of truth
I've done this all alone, and now I see
Travelling in circles won’t lead me to You

I need You
More than anything

I will never find the truth
Until I yield to You
I won’t find resolution
Until I yield to You

Cause brings effect and I’m the cause
I'm the cause, I'm the cause
Cause brings effect and I’m the cause
I'm the cause, I'm the cause
