"Treason" as written by Kasseem Dean, M. Johns and Marinna Teal....
One last disguise

Pawns standing in awe of the game
Of the stage
You've worked so hard at building an empire
Of secret rooms to display yourself
And add to your wealth
The sting of.
Oh, it stings
When I saw it all come crashing
I witnessed the sound of a million voices
Screaming for a public hanging

So hide yourself, hide, hide yourself for now.
So hide yourself, hide, hide yourself for now.

We caught you plotting murder
And now the Tide is Turning
We'll light our souls, heal our bones
Upon your empire burning
Upon your empire burning

When the world is a target for humanity's market
And all of it's sold for a dime
I've seen the towers of gods
And the power of men
In disguises of the worst kind
I am the words on the page
I am the death among life today
I am the voice of one among the silent
Who's tired of burning among the flames

So hide yourself, hide, hide yourself for now.
So hide yourself, hide, hide yourself for now.

We caught you plotting murder
And now the Tide is Turning
We'll light our souls, heal our bones
Upon your empire burning
Upon your empire burning

I do not need anymore truthless heroes
I do not need anymore truthless heroes
I do not need anymore truthless heroes
We don't need no truthless heroes

So hide yourself, hide, hide yourself for now.
So hide yourself, hide, hide yourself for now.

We caught you plotting murder
And now the Tide is Turning
We'll light our souls, heal our bones
Upon your empire burning
Upon your empire burning

I need truth

    General CommentHmmm...no one's commented on this song yet. The Treason to which the song refers is that we will praise God and be good one moment and then before you know it, we are doing wrong. This song teaches us two things: God's grace is sufficient for thee, and no matter what you do, any attempt on your part to "make right" with God will ultimately fail because the only way to make right with God was made right through Christ. So take that Way and remember that when Jesus died, He died for ALL sin, including yesterday's, today's and tomorrow's. Good song that makes you think

    General CommentThis song really got to me the first time I heard it and I never really got it out of my head. I feel like this song is talking about how we keep trying to do the right thing, but we can't, as sinners. It tells us how amazing the grace of Christ is that it doesn't depend on us.

    General CommentThis song really speaks to me about what it was like when I finally came to see the real world. I grew up in a sheltered christian home, my dad was a pastor and my mom was a counseler. I became saved when I was 13, but even before that I was taught to be respectful and do the right thing. Then, as I got to know more of the kids in church, I was absolutely disgusted by how they acted. This song kinda hits how I felt then when I saw my friends as they really were.
