about

The only song written by the Bassist Robin Woods. It has obvious elements of Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin and Metallica.

lyrics

~INTRO~
Without faith, I live as I please
I am free from His higher pleas
I live life as full as I can
I will live and die my own man

Approaching mid life, no trouble and no strife
Just one thought on my mind; how shall I take God's knife?
With mercy? In tremor? An endless endeavour
Try to grasp my terror and how will...
Now?

~VERSE~
See myself as if from afar
It's not absolute, the gates are still ajar
I can't decide if I want this faith
But I need to trust, it can't be too late
I have my doubts, I'm blackened by awe
Will He take me in, will He let me fall?
Redeem me Father, I know I've sinned
Will you take me father, will you take me in?

~CHORUS~
Lord, at the Gates of Heaven
Lay your judgement on me
Lord, at the Gates of Heaven
Will your judgement let me be?

~CHORUS~
Lord, at the Gates of Heaven
Lay your judgement on me
Lord, at the Gates of Heaven
Will your judgement let me be?
Lord, did you forgive my brethren?
When they perished and all died?
Lord, open the Gates of Heaven
Will you though I have lied?
