Track Name: Overcomer
The past isn't part of me
Just a memory of who I'll never be again
No longer looking back
I've set my sights on what's ahead
Before me

I've been made a new me
Growing to be what I was always designed to be
I'm the head, not the tail
I'm above, and I'm not beneath

[Chorus]
Don't gloat over me
Cause I'll rise again
What I used to be
I dead and gone
He who lives in me
Is greater than all
In time, you will see
I have overcome the world

You can't stand against me
With your trickery and replay of my memories
I know who I am
And I won't back down from my righteous stand

Lookin' like a mighty beast
Prowling around like you're preparing for a feast
But in blood, I stand, with your teeth in my hand
Singing, "Death, where is your sting?"
Track Name: Show Me Whatcha Got
Look up, look up!
I'm talking to you
There's only suffering looking back
at what you've been through
Nothing can be done about yesterday
But you can do so much with the gift
known as "today"

I'm sick and tired of watching you bleed
Today's the final day you're gonna spend in defeat
It's time to fight back (fight back)
against the devil's schemes
You were designed for dominion
So show me whatcha got

Look up, look up!
I'm talking to you
You're going anywhere that you fix your gaze to
Action follows faith, I think we'd agree
So make the authentic you the new reality

I'm sick and tired of watching you bleed
Today's the final day you're gonna spend in defeat
It's time to fight back (fight back)
against the devil's schemes
You were designed for dominion
(So show me whatcha got)
Don't leave your pearls in the realm of the dead
The cross to bear gets lighter with the joy set ahead
It's time to fight back (fight back)
Remember that is was said
"You were designed for dominion"
So show me whatcha got
Track Name: Single Eye
Focusing on so much
My lens so wide that I'm out of touch
With all the things that are necessary
to live life abundant indeed

I don't want to have to gouge it out
I don't want to have to throw it in hell
But I'll go where it looks to
So I'll change everything it beholds

Single Eye, can you tell me why
such narrow sight lets in so much light?
If I keep watching darkness, I know I will die
All because of a single eye

Invaders love a wide gate
It's crawling through a crevice they hate
A tunnel to a grave never elevates
So change the tunnel's path you take

Single Eye, can you tell me why
such narrow sight lets in so much light?
If I keep watching darkness, I know I will die
Yeah, I know I will die
Single Eye, all this time's gone by
Neglected for so long, how it flies
Face down int he dirt now I realize
That it's time to get a single eye
Track Name: Blood. Sweat. Fire.
Trapped in deceit
That anything that we want will just fall at our feet
Promises incomplete
Because when the trials show up
We retreat

[Pre-chorus]
A thousand may fall around me
I will stand
I won't be afraid inside this shadowland

[Chorus]
To lay hold of the prize ahead
It will require
(Blood, sweat, fire)
With ambition ahead
Keep on going higher
(Blood, sweat, fire)

Abandon the ease
To take hold of the freedom discipline can bring
Push through to achieve
While the indulgent stay behind in wishful thinking
Track Name: Breaking Free
My kind has seen
So many repetitions of this
Cycle of trying and failing
So many left discouraged
It takes away the will to press on
Their strength is stolen and their motivation is gone
But I choose to be one of the few that prevail
Watching limitations fall before my restless travail

I'm breaking free
When my mind says "no," but my heart says "yes"
I'm breaking free
I'm gonna discipline my body and I'll make it my slave
I'm breaking free

I'm swinging and dodging
But still, I keep on fighting
Cause seven rounds of failure don't determine the eighth
Contemporaries shake their heads and say I'm a fool
And they preach on why they quit and all the reasons I should too
I shake them off and listen for the bell's ring again
Forget the past and press on towards the goal is my thing

I'm breaking free
When my mind says "no," but my heart says "yes"
I'm breaking free
I'm gonna discipline my body and I'll make it my slave
I'm breaking free
Those around me will become inspired to fight
I'm breaking free
I refuse to be limited
I'm breaking free
Track Name: Cage Fight
Day in and out
There's a battle going on in my head
'Tween the words
That the angel and the devil on my shoulder have said
The seeds sown carelessly
Left me with a harvest that was dead
I need to feast a little more
On the words that were written in red

[Chorus]
It's a cage fight
In the confines of my mind
I'm not backing down
Every round I win's another step in my maturity
It's not over
Till I die or I give up
My mind's made up
I'm becoming everything that I was designed to be

These demons coming after me
Trying to hold me down with all this pain
Trying to pump me full of doubt
Doing everything to get me to refrain
All this affliction
Has got to leave in the Name
And I'm living for the light
Cause the darkness within me has been slain
Track Name: Engraved
In my head
Are the dead prophecies of a life yet to pass
Giving birth
To a storm in the norm only I see amass
In the hope
Of reprieve, I will hold my breath as the waters rise
If they see
Who I am, I'm afraid they will leave
So I'll wear my disguise

Hating the face in the mirror
The image I made myself in
I wish that I could start over
Where a hope and a future begin

[Chorus]
Nowhere can I find a shred of peace
Tossed and driven like a wave upon the seas
My hope is to take hold of the hands
On whose palms has my name been engraved

I resolve
To let go of the sins and weights throwing me off track
Weeping from
The affections I had for the things throwing me off track
Struggling
With the thought of a life where I can love myself again
Tell myself
Everyday of my worth till it gets to my heart from my brain

I won't stop till I'm delivered
From the lies that I've believed in
Taking on a new perspective
I'm transformed as my mind is renewed
