Vapor
Words and music by John L. Cooper.

And the future's robbing my soul,
I'm face to face with my futility.
And my life is slipping away
Inhaling my mortality.

I'm a beep, I'm a vapor,
I'm just a blinking light
I'm a beep, I'm a vapor,
And I'm about to evaporate.
I'm a beep, I'm a vapor,
I'm just a blinking light
I'm a beep, I'm a vapor,
I'm a vapor

And I fell my skin's just a shell,
Underneath is my reality.
I breathe dimensions unknown,
It conquers my mortality.

It's a mad, mad world, will it ever stop?
Will the madness end?
While my body decays, my soul does not.
Death is just the beginning

And the future's robbing my soul,
Inhaling my mortality.
 
 
Earth Invasion
Words and music by John L. Cooper.
2001 Photon Music (BMI). All Rights Reserved.
 
One man, one mission, One plot to save the world.
Reclaim all races, And embrace our destiny.

Changing history, when the colliding comes.
And where will you run?
Come with us if you want to live.

Join us in the army that's arising.
The truth invades your mind.
Everyday the kingdom is advancing.
The Earth invasion has just begun.

Without a sound, without fear,
It attacks the heart and soul.
To rule all life and display his government.

The world's frustration
To be whole again.
We'll see a nation
Living without sin.
 
 
You Are My Hope
Words by John L. and Korey Cooper.

Times are hard, times have changed, don't you say.
But I keep holding on to you.
It's hard to keep the faith alive day to day.
Leaning on the strength I found in you.
You're the hope of all the earth...

You are my hope, You are my strength,
You're everything, everything I need.
You are my hope, You are my life.
You are my hope. You are my hope.

Far beyond what I can see or comprehend,
Etching your eternity in me.
Nations stream and angels sing "Jesus reigns",
And every knee bows down.
You're the hope of all the earth...

Carry on and I sing of how
You love and I love you now.
All the times that I start to sink
You come in to rescue me.
 
 
Eating Me Away
Words and music by John L. Cooper.

"It's eating me away", I said to God.
It's rotting in my mind, it's like a cancer.
Is there anything, anything at all to numb the nothingness.
I need a reason to breathe, it's eating me away.

Save me from the rage
And my humanity.
I'm more nothing than being
Is this my legacy?
Feel it eating me away.

Eating me away, it nibbles at my brain.
The question of my existence, and the matter of pain.
I shake my fist, I shake my fist,
At the cosmos and my insignificance.
I need a reason to breath, it's eating me away.

All that I am, all that I want.
All that I lack, come on and save me.
All that I am, all that I want.
All that I lack, come on and save me.
 
 
Kill Me, Heal Me
Words and music by John L. Cooper.

Break my bones and reset me piece by piece.
You break me, pick of the cross cause it's killing time.
Hey, hey, hey, how can I scream when the pain is such a release.
I get the courage to pick up the nails cause it's killing time.

Kill me, heal me.
Kill me, heal me on and on.
Kill me, heal me.
Kill me, heal me on and on.

Breathing your love, you're ferocious, you're in my lungs.
Resusitate, craving your electricity.
Hey, hey, hey, feet to my pain, you give wings to my fear.
Your peace inhabits my blood. Your love is thick.

I can't live without it. I can't live without it.
I can't live without it. I can't live without it.
 
The Thirst Is Taking Over
Words and music by John L. Cooper.
2001 Photon Music (BMI). All Rights Reserved.
 
You alone are what my soul needs,
You know the thirst is taking over.
Hardly breathe, I'm in urgent need.
You know the thirst is taking over.

The thirst is taking over...

Hold me down, hold me down.
Drip it on my tongue, and my convulsions stop.
Thirst for love, thirst for your love.
I could swallow your beauty whole.

Running out, time's running out.
Searching for the one who can conquer me.
I'm gonna scream aloud, throw it down,
Crash in my sweet obsession of you.
I'm gonna swim and drown in the wake of you.

I want to taste it, I need to taste it
Deep in the savior's arms.

I want to drink you in, I am drinking in.
I want to drink you in till I die, the day I die, the day.
 
 
One Real Thing
Words and music by Korey Cooper.
2001 Photon Music (BMI). All Rights Reserved.
 
Speak and my heart starts aching.
Reach and the numbness dims.
Beat, still my mind uncertain.
Breathe, it begins again.

You are the one real thing. [yeah]
You are the one true thing. [that I love]
You are the one real thing.
No matter what the future brings,
You're the one real thing.

Stay locked within your presence.
Truth renewing my mind again.
Rest cause I know you're faithful, and I
Trust cause I know your name.

I get down on my knees,
And feel your love wash over me.
 
 
Stronger
Words and music by John L. Cooper.
2001 Photon Music (BMI). All Rights Reserved.
 
My skin is my disguise, I'm more than a man.
I smile at my demise, ask who I am.
More than a man, more than a man.
More than a man, more than a man.

My skin is my disguise, I'm more than a man.
I was sent to rule on Earth, ask who I am.
I wreck, I wreck, I wreck.
I wreck with every prayer, ask who I am.

Cause I'm stronger yeah,
Than the devil yeah yeah.
Cause I'm stronger yeah,
Than the devil yeah yeah.

The fear tries to take me,
The flesh tries to pull.
The blackness all around me, but I'm undefeatable.
My God is strong, my God is strong, my God is strong, my God is strong.
All creation watches for Him to arrive.
 
 
Rippin Me Off
Words and music by John L. Cooper.
2001 Photon Music (BMI). All Rights Reserved.
 
They say Jesus is doing nothing,
They say evolution took his place.
There's no God that created the world,
And no savior for the human race.

They say God is powerless,
He laughs aloud as we cry in pain.
It's just a part of His sick, sick humor
Forcing us to appreciate.

You say that God is dead, but you're ripping me off.
You can't infect my mind with your vanity.
You say that God is dead, but you're ripping me off.
You can't infect my mind with your vanity.
You're ripping me off, you're ripping me off.
You're ripping me off, you're ripping me off.

They say God deosn't even exist,
We made Him up just to numb our pain.
They can't believe that a loving God,
That deosn't believe in atheists.

We take too much. We take too much.
We take too much. We take too much.
 
 
Will You Be There [Falling Down]
Words and music by Korey & John L. Cooper.

As I fall to sleep,
Wll you comfort me?
When my heart is weak,
Wil you rescue me?

Will you be there as I grow cold?
Will you be there when I'm falling down?
Will you be there?

When I'm in retreat,
Can I run to you?
Will pain release
At you mercy seat?

Are you saying yes?
I gotta believe it.
Are you saying yeah?
When your love comes down I can rest my eyes.
Feel your grace and power flood into my life.
As my brokenness and your strength collide.
When your love comes down, falling down.
 
 
Come My Way
Words and music by John L. Cooper.
2001 Photon Music (BMI). All Rights Reserved.
 
Hundreds come from everywhere
Just to see your face and touch the healer's hem.
Desperate, I push through the crowd,
If I could touch your clothes, I could feel your power.

Come my way, come my way.
Come my way, come my way.

Please look and notice me.
Just to ease my pain, just to know your name.

I'm out of touch, I'm out of reach.
I've got the faith to believe.
Oh, am I out of touch, or out of reach?
What would it take for you to walk towards me?

I'm out of touch, out of reach.
But I'm running towards you, and it's all I believe.
