HERALD
music: Geoff Allen, Aaron Rom, Ryan Schmidt, Tyler Von Moll, Mitch Alpaugh
lyrics: Aaron Rom

I. THE REVELATION

A revelation comes to me
the future is revealed
A vision that must find the light
no eyes can be concealed
Hear me I’m the messenger
chosen to show the way
A louder voice that speaks through me
that I cannot betray

Lead them from the wilderness
my mission is quite clear
The herald of the end of days
the time is drawing near
Cry out to the masses
salvation’s not too late
The time has come to signify
the reckoning of fate

I will be here to save all that I can
I will not fail you for I know the plan

solo: Ryan Schmidt

II. A CALL TO THE FAITHFUL

Gather the faithful
tune in to my voice
the words of the prophet foretold
bring down the fire
from up in the sky
the look in their eyes has gone cold

Judgement is coming swift and severe
the final decision at hand
but if you believe and do just as I say
you will rise up
escaping the fate of this land

I will be here to save all that I can
I will not fail you for I know the plan

III. ONE LAST WARNING FOR THE UNWASHED MASSES

The beast will come for the souls
of those who have turned away
dragging down to hell
the sheep who went astray
Vengeance will be certain
for those who don’t believe
Promises of retribution
leave no chance to grieve

solo: Geoff Allen
solo: Ryan Schmidt

IV. THE HOUR OF RECKONING

solo: Ryan Schmidt

This is the moment
The hour of reckoning
This is the day
I have waited for
Fire will wash the sin away

Vengeance
Judgement

V. BEWARE FALSE PROPHETS

Open my eyes and look to the sky
but the same old world still appears
I promised them fire and pillars of salt
so why are we all still here?
I swore you had told me the hour and day
did everything just as you said
And all I have left is this growing confusion
and anger at being misled

Feeling the failure
the sense of delusion
left with the question
of this false illusion

Why have you abandoned me?
What were the signs I missed?
Unless I was mistaken
and you don’t really exist?
