Track Name: Into the Storm
Go to the city of hatred and lies
To those who will carry your children away
Through you I will show mercy and love
To those who will make your people slaves

Sailing into the storm
Sailing into the storm
Sailing into the storm

I am the prophet who runs from his God
This tempest is my own
Feed me to the blackest depths
That you may live to reach your home
Do not charge us with innocent blood
Do not charge us with innocent blood
Do not charge us with innocent blood
Do not charge us with innocent blood

Sailing into the storm
Sailing into the storm
Sailing into the storm

The wind and the waves subside
The prophet has surely died
Oh my God, what have we done?
Track Name: Sinking Man
What is this that rises through the deep?
Leviathan bearing down on me
Even if I had the strength to flee
I can't remove the guilt chained to my feet

Sinking man
I'm falling down into
Sinking man
The teeth of my anger
Sinking man
I'm tearing apart in
Sinking man
The teeth of my anger

I have walked in light and seen the way of truth
But I've been blind to deal the hatred that's...
Hunting me now, armor of scales
Stench of the dead, thrashing of tail
Cavernous jaws swallow me whole
Never again shall the light of day I behold

Never again to rise

Sinking man
Never again to...
Sinking man
Never again to...
Sinking man
Never again to...
Sinking man
Never again to rise

Cold and damp this bitter season
Solitude beyond all reason
No comfort my second womb
This shall be my hidden tomb
Track Name: Silence of the Deep
You hurled me into the deep
Into the heart of the sea
Somewhere between my life and death
I call to you with my last breath
With my last breath

Please let me stand
In the shadow of your hand
I'll take your plan
And give you all I am

And in the silence of the deep
I opened my eyes in the gloom
And I began to understand
This saving terror was from you
It was from you
Track Name: Nineveh
All rise
Go and let the evil city hear my message
All rise
Full of bloody lies and now no one will mourn her
Forty
Days from now and Nineveh will be overthrown
Forty
Days before you wicked men will reap what you've sown

Now
Now is the time
I'll sit and watch as the fire descends from the sky
Burning your eyes
Burning your streets
Ending your lies
No compassion
Show no mercy

Let the men of Nineveh lie down in ashes
Hear me
Clothe all of your children in the rags of mourning
Too late
Is it too late to turn and wash the blood from our hands?
Maybe
God will show us mercy if we heed this warning
Track Name: Someone Else Like You
I can't lie
I'd rejoice at your fall
Your cruelty is evident to all who know you
How can I give God my trust
When his grace to you is so unjust?
I can't abide this love

Again I find this to be true
I love myself more than you
It's easier to serve myself
Than save the life of someone else
Someone else like you

How can you be among the chosen few
When every day I thank my God
That I'm not you
I have the life
And pure blood is in my veins
So why does your deliverance cause me so much pain?
So much pain

How can it be that God should see
His creature's endless pain
Or hear his groans and rueful moans
And still his wrath retain?

My hate has poisoned me inside
Why couldn't you just let me run?
I'm angry enough that I could die
So kill me now under the sun
I can't be like you
I can't love like you

I hold these people in my hand
A hundred thousand strong they stand
Why should I not pity them
The way that I have pitied you?
Should I not love them, too
The way that I love you?
Track Name: Silence of the Deep - Acoustic (single)
You hurled me into the deep
Into the heart of the sea
Somewhere between my life and death
I call to you with my last breath
With my last breath

Please let me stand
In the shadow of your hand
I'll take your plan
And give you all I am

And in the silence of the deep
I opened my eyes in the gloom
And I began to understand
This saving terror was from you
It was from you
