    Excuse me for being an ignorant British dude, but does anyone kknow where I can get hold of the lyrics to the debut album? The CD I'm listening to has no cover because it's not mine: are they on the NET anywhere? I've found a lot of TheocracyAD lyrics, but not these.

    My most desired lyrics are for "Theocracy" and "Sinner"

    Thanks dudes

    (Where to find the lyrics? In the booklet of the CD of course)

    Theocracy

    At the center of my heart there sits a throne
    That the rightful occupant's not always
    free to call His own
    For how can i give the King
    His place of worth above all else
    When I spend my time striving
    to place the crown upon myself?

    Battle cry, to engage
    for the war, set the stage
    and armies march and kings arise
    for the choice, the time has come
    mine or thy will be done?
    and the pain reflects in holy eyes
    for the will to obey
    for the night to the day
    and the seasons change and rulers die
    not of flesh, not of men
    wage the war deep within
    on and on it rages undenied

    I TAKE MY CROWN AND CAST IT DOWN
    CASTLES BURNING
    CASTLES BURNING
    LEARN TO GROW, GROW TO BE
    A FLESH AND BLOOD THEOCRACY
    TO TAKE THE LOSS AND BEAR THE CROSS
    RAISE THE KINGDOM
    RAISE THE KINGDOM
    BURN AWAY ALL IVE BEEN
    TO RESURRECT THEOCRACY WITHIN

    and the would-be rulers of my heart
    that I place upon the throne
    each lead the kingdom of my life to ruin
    to bring every though into submission
    to tear the idols down
    is to break the chains, to rearrange,
    to give the king his crown

    I TAKE MY CROWN AND CAST IT DOWN
    CASTLES BURNING
    CASTLES BURNING
    LEARN TO GROW, GROW TO BE
    A FLESH AND BLOOD THEOCRACY
    TO TAKE THE LOSS AND BEAR THE CROSS
    RAISE THE KINGDOM
    RAISE THE KINGDOM
    BURN AWAY ALL IVE BEEN
    TO RESURRECT THEOCRACY WITHIN

    Rather, use me to be your hands down here
    a mirror to reflect your glory into hurting eyes
    and let me see the world with vision clear
    and not through selfishness and lies
    for if I am consumed with my own cares
    what right have I to speak the words
    Thy Kingdom Come?
    And if I am consumed with my own will,
    what right to pray Thy Will Be Done?

    As all round me I see bleeding souls
    please give me strength to never pass them idly by
    and as the angry stormclouds start to roll
    may they see comfort in my eyes
    for just as you are full of love
    the same to others you have called me to be
    and by the covenant of grace above and below
    within our souls: theocracy

    I TAKE MY CROWN AND CAST IT DOWN
    CASTLES BURNING
    CASTLES BURNING
    LEARN TO GROW, GROW TO BE
    A FLESH AND BLOOD THEOCRACY
    TO TAKE THE LOSS AND BEAR THE CROSS
    RAISE THE KINGDOM
    RAISE THE KINGDOM
    BURN AWAY ALL IVE BEEN
    TO RESURRECT THEOCRACY WITHIN

    Sinner

    Shame covers me
    What was Light has turned To Dark
    Pain torments me
    Where there once was something holy
    now beats my blackended heart

    Sin has tangled me
    My life is broken and I bleed eternally
    Grief’s controlling me
    So I cry out to the only one who can bring
    the healing that I need

    Help me, save me
    Take this guilt away from me
    Hear me, take me
    back to where I was before the fall
    Wash me, cleanse me
    See what has become of me
    Trying on my own I failed
    so I now come crawling back to you
    I've fallen

    I’m a sick man rotting slowly
    Spiritual leprosy
    I’m a captive crying out
    Tear the chains and set me free

    Help me, save me
    Take this guilt away from me
    Hear me, take me
    back to where I was before the fall
    Wash me, cleanse me
    See what has become of me
    Trying on my own I failed
    so I now come crawling back to you
    I've fallen
