"A Monument Encased In Ash" as written by Travis Dean Bailey, David Edison Bunton, Joshua Michael Childers, Richard Allan Hall and Eric Allan Koruschak....
Will you destroy the righteous with the wicked
Shine your mercy on but 50 men
Show me 10 yet worthy to see the sun again
Though you're naught but dust and ash I will relent

Stand and be counted
Turn from these ruins
Run

Fire rains from the sky
The hand of justice falls
You spit in the face of one whose might is yet untold
Fire rains from the sky
The scales have tipped too far
A monument encased in ash naught but a grave

Where are these men that came to you this night
Bring them forth that we may know them
Be struck blind clear now a path for those I love
Await the brimstone that comes soon to fill your grave

Stand and be counted
Turn from these ruins
Run

Fire rains from the sky
The hand of justice falls
You spit in the face of one whose might is yet untold
Fire rains from the sky
The scales have tipped too far
A monument encased in ash naught but a grave

Whoa break it down

The stench of Sodom quenched in smoke and flame
Angels enraged bring judgment hence
Justice comes burning sear you from the face of the earth
Dead eyes raised to an ash choked sky

Stand and be counted
Turn from these ruins
Run

Fire rains from the sky
The hand of justice falls
You spit in the face of one whose might is yet untold
Fire rains from the sky
The scales have tipped too far
A monument encased in ash naught but a grave

    General Commentthis is a pretty dank metal song and i don't especially like metal, just hardcore. it just like most of the showdown's songs, is about the last days where God pours out his wrath on the world and the believers are raised from death. the reference to 'the One whose might is untold' is to Jesus and 'the stench of Sodom' is used in the Bible to represent evil and straying from purity and good.

    This song has a good message and some pretty cool guitar riffs too.

    General CommentThis song is all about Sodom & Gomorrah.
    Theres is a typo, it should be "You spit in the face of the One whose might is yet untold"
    Meaning that the people now and back then, even with evidence, don't obey God and are destroyed.
    I love the intro and the whole song.

    General Commentok, I just noticed. You missed a whole sentence between Sodom and angels. It's "justice comes burning sear you from the face of the earth." and then angels.

    General CommentUber is right, Sodom and Gamorrah were cities so sinful that God got fed up and destroyed them, and this song is about that.
