"For Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. Nor was it to offer himself repeatedly, as the high priest enters the holy places every year with blood not his own, for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him." Hebrews 9:24-28

Shake your fist up to the sky
Life's a mess, wondering why
Disbelief, quit living a lie
There's two roads the truth or a lie
This world brings nothing but pain
Never conform, against the grain
Once lived life hopeless, alone
Now I know, hope sits on the throne
Blood was shed
Price was paid
Don't you die
Raise to life!
We laugh, we cry
We live, we die
There's a truth that can't be denied
Life goes by in the blink of an eye
Lose your life and follow Christ
What do you live for?
What do you stand for?
You're searching for something
A sense of belonging
Today is the day right now is the time
Tomorrow may never come
It is appointed for a man once to die
After this we meet God eye to eye
Give account for this our gift of life
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
