Track Name: War In The Heavens
WAR IN THE HEAVENS
By Mychael John Thomas

One of GODs elite…Not content to be
Seeking to be GOD himself he tried to take control
Even till this day since he was
Thrown from grace and

CHORUS
War in the Heavens…The Angels fight
Michael defending the children of the Light
Satan's rebellion against the throne
Jesus is coming to crush him like a stone

Loosed up on the Earth…Bringing only hurt
Seeking to exalt himself he’s only king of lies
Powerless to all of those
Who realize it

CHORUS

SOLO

Till the end of time he’ll be confusing every soul
No one will escape except
The ones who know there’s

Track Name: Message Of The Drums
MESSAGE OF THE DRUMS
By Mychael John Thomas

I hear the rumbling…Messages proclaimed
Spreading through the villages…Like a ravenous flame
Danger is up ahead…There is no escape
The storm is here…Do we realize too late?

CHORUS
The Evil runs amok…The Evil runs amok
Consuming everyone in it’s path
Pray for the light and look…Pray for the light and look
To the sky…Our Salvation is at hand

I’ve seen the children play…Oblivious to sorrow
Live and love in the moment…Like there’s no tomorrow
How did we get so far from the song that heals the spirit?
Pound a warning beat…Maybe some pure soul still hear it

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Singing Hey ay yah…Hey ay yah
Come and help Your people through the seige
Singing Hey ay yah…Hey ay yah
Faith preserve the ones who will believe

CHORUS
CHORUS

I hear the rumbling…Messages proclaimed
Spreading through the villages…Like a ravenous flame

Track Name: Soldier
SOLDIER
By Mychael John Thomas

I button up my uniform and march out in the street
I got my flag…It ain’t no drag
A privilege to serve my country knowing gladly I would
Give my life…To make it right

CHORUS
My home is covered by the stars and stripes
My heart my passion is this land
I learned about freedom in a different time
It’s truth and love I understand…
And I’m a free man

The spit on me in Vietnam and now Afghanistan
But I don’t care…I’ll still be there
Because I’m the only hope for freedom…I defend the weak
And the oppressed…They get my best

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I remember one great man saying
“Ask not what you’re country can do for you…
Ask what you can do for your country”
Even today these words are no less true…
It’s what we’re meant to do (I am a soldier…I am a soldier)

“Pledge of Allegiance” - recitation

CHORUS
My soul is covered by the Guiding Light
My heart my passion is His land
I learned of Salvation with a different mind
His truth and His love I understand…
And I'm a free man…Baby I’m a free man

Track Name: The Middle Of The Road
THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD
By Mychael John Thomas

Most people see things black or white
But I think that life is more shades of gray
And we all know if someone is looking for a fight
They are surely going to find a way

CHORUS
I’m looking for stability
(Gotta get away) From all this insanity
I want to learn more than what I know

Caught up in the pursuit of dreams
(Day to day) I’m finding the truth its seems
Is somewhere in the middle of the road

I can’t spend all my time makin’ such a fuss
Over all of the little things I can’t change
The real picture is bigger than every one of us
And I believe that Loves true path is straight

CHORUS
I’m looking toward eternity
(And I try) To embrace the ambiguity
(Not troubled) by everything (I don’t know)

All my visions are clearly seen
(Second sight) In the balance of (everything)
(So I’m walking the middle of the road)

CHORUS
The middle of the road (I’m looking toward eternity)
And I try (To embrace the ambiguity)
And I’m not troubled by everything I don’t…
(Not troubled by everything I don’t know)

or anything I don’t know

(All my visions are clearly seen)
All my visions are second sight
(In the balance of everything)
In the balance (I’m walking the middle of the road)
I’m walking the middle…The middle of the road
(I’m walking the middle of the road)
I’m walking the middle…The middle of the road
(I’m walking the middle of the road)

Track Name: Change Of The Guard
CHANGE OF THE GUARD
By Mychael John Thomas

Feeling like a political prisoner…Captive to ideals
Exiled by the power of opinion…Now it’s time to get real
New is coming…I hope it’s something
That’s good for us all
Been so long since I felt strong enough to
Rise up after the fall

CHORUS
It’s just a change of the guard
It doesn’t mean we have to change who we are
You’re dealt a hand then you play your cards
With the change of the guard

Not listening to lies and rhetoric…Just looking for truth
At times it’s the lesser of two evils…What else can you do?
Seize the moment…Keep your mind open
Take every chance you can get
Possibilities…Opportunities will
Happen…We ain’t done yet

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Give ear to every voice…Then make your own choice
Don’t even try to please everyone…It can’t be done
Just live every day as it comes

SOLO

CHORUS
It’s just a change of the guard
It can be easy if we don’t make it hard
Let’s pull together or we won’t get far
With the change of the guard

Let’s pull together or we won’t get far
With the change of the guard

Track Name: EPIC
EPIC
By Mychael John Thomas

I. PEACE LOVE WARRIOR

Peace and Love…Peace and Love…Warrior

If you wanna go to war
You gotta know who the enemy is
When it leads to death and destruction
And it’s over I can tell you this
The real battle is good versus evil
It’s a struggle till the end of time
The only victory you’ll ever have
Is to win the conflict in your mind

CHORUS
I am a peace love warrior
I don’t fight with bullets or bombs
I serve a GOD of forevermore
My heart is loyal to the Kingdom Come

If you want to know your own spirit
You gotta go to the bottom of the well
It’s up to you to shape who you are
You make your choices and time will tell
You can’t decide in the heat of the moment
Keep your passions under control
Look for your center in everything
Don’t let the anger steal your soul

CHORUS
I am a peace love warrior
I don’t fight with bullets or bombs
I serve the GOD of forevermore
My heart is loyal to the Kingdom Come

BRIDGE
Pray without ceasing…Relate without being
Escape without fleeing…Hide without concealing
See without judging…Walk without trudging
Submit without kneeling…Love with all feeling

SOLO

Break Down
Peace and Love…Peace and Love…Warrior

CHORUS
I am a peace love warrior
I don’t fight with bullets or bombs
I serve the GOD of forevermore
My heart is loyal to the Kingdom Come

CHORUS

(Peace and Love…Peace and Love…Warrior)

II. IN THE GRAND SCHEME

Not sure if you really believe in true love?
Never seen it the way it ought to be
You watch everybody else meet someone
But you’re still waiting to see
You don’t wanna be a naysayer
But you can’t say you’re a daily prayer
Heaven there to help you when you waver

CHORUS
Who are we in this great big universe?
Eternal questions overwhelming finite minds
Does someone really care every time we hurt?
We need an epiphany of the mind
To put us over the line (put us over the line)

So many hopes and dreams we are giving up
Exhausting our faith (Revive us again)
Still hoping that love will send you the one
Who will be your forever friend
You don’t wanna be a night player
Alone now but sooner or later
We all see the truth of the matter

CHORUS
Who are we in this great big universe?
Eternal questions overwhelming finite minds
Does someone really care every time we hurt?
We need an epiphany of the mind
To put us over the line (put us over the line)

III. DO WHAT YOU CAN

Do What You Can…Do What You Can...Do What You Can

Every day…Lonely faces on the street
Feel the need inside
Lead the way…To a place where we can meet
And be freed this time

CHORUS
You gotta feel that burn…Compassion in you heart
It ain’t something you can learn just pick a place and start
Another day will turn…You can play a part
And Heaven knows the difference you make
(Do What You Can…Do What You Can...Do What You Can) 2 times

Crazy times…Fear and anger everywhere
Hard to care at all
Still we find a total stranger just appears
Then we hear the call
CHORUS

BRIDGE
What’s it all about? Just why are we here
Would You still the doubt? Help me see it clear---ly

SOLO

CHORUS 1

CHORUS
You gotta change your mind about the way you love
And you got to take the time to really know someone
And when you read the signs…You will see it done
And Heaven knows the difference you make
(Do What You Can…Do What You Can...Do What You Can) 4 times

IV. TREATY

Where can we agree?…
Tell me what you need
What can I give to bring you around?

How do we begin?…
To find a way we both win
So we can finally lay our hatred down

CHORUS
Working on a treaty…Maybe you would meet me
Half Way…Could we let this conflict die?
I’m working on a treaty for a different way of being
Seeing eye to eye…We could fly

In the heat of the moment…
When hearts just won’t be open
Things will escalate and lives be lost

Try to put it in reverse…
Before it gets much worse
You know love will gladly pay the cost

CHORUS
I’m working on a treaty…Maybe you would meet me
Half Way…Could we let this conflict die?
I’m working on a treaty for a different way of being
Seeing eye to eye…We could fly (repeat CHORUS)

We can be peacemakers…We can be Sons…
We are the caretakers…Of the message of the One…

Working on a Treaty...I'm working on a Treaty
Working on a Treaty...Um Hmmm

Track Name: Peace
PEACE
By Mychael John Thomas

Eirene…Eireneuo…Eirene…Eireneuo

In this world of conflicts…From where do they arise
Is it not from passion and desire that fills our eyes
Still there is a calm for us if only we will pray
Listen for His voice and you can hear Messiah saying

CHORUS
Peace I give to you…Give to you My peace
I give to you…Give to you…Not as the world may know
Follow me and I will show you peace

In His word he tells us that wars will never cease
Until the world has ended and his plan is made complete
Only in His armor can we stand until the end
Defending with the words of Jesus saying we can live in

CHORUS
Peace I give to you…Give to you My peace
I give to you…Give to you…Not as the world may know
Follow me and I will show you
Eirene…Eireneuo…Eirene…Eireneuo

SOLO

There’s a war inside you from which you can’t escape
You only have two choices and one of them you must take
You can choose the one who came to destroy & steal & kill
Or you can have eternal life by accepting Jesus will say

CHORUS

Eirene…Eireneuo…Eirene…Eireneuo (repeat)
Peace...
