LYRICS FROM SAINT
Too Late For Living 
1988



Too Late For Living

[Music by Josh Kramer]
[Words by Richard Lynch]

I woke up bright this morning
Another sunny day
Life was treating me real cool
Things were going, going my way
Then I jumped into my Chevy
Built to the top, four on the floor
Boring through the streets at day break
I wish I'd known what was in store

How could I know this would be my
Last day on earth
All the things that I've acquired
Now it seems they have no worth

Too late for living
Suddenly life is gone
I drove the center line
Acting like I knew it all
And I wound up in a faster lane
Heading for my fall
Well I see the light but it's too late
For me, I'm gone

Too late for living


Star Pilot

[Music by Dee Harrington]
[Words by Richard Lynch & John Lynch]

Red alert star craft approaching
Everybody put on your gear
By your command engines on stand by
We are the ones that they fear

Permission granted launching pad is clear

Prepare for take-off stay in the pattern
There in your sights is your mind there
It's your mission protect and defend
Send the enemy back to hell

No time to reflect your time is here

Don't you stop fighting, armor up star pilot
Don't you turn your back on me
Calling battle stations, look out for infiltration
We will have this victory

Picking up enemy fighter
Closing in for the kill
I'm losing communication
Navigation is this your will?

My faith gets weak when the pressure turns on

Plot a course into battle
Ignition thrusters igniting done
Blasting with proton power
It seems we've won but they're not gone

Why am I fighting a battle that's been won?

Red alert star craft approaching
Everybody put on your gear
Once again into battle
Out to space no reason to fear

Our Lord protect us we know that He is here


Accuser

[Words and Music by Richard Lynch]

He wears the coat of darkness
You know he wears it well
He is the king of evil
Sent to us straight from hell
Working his master plan
Destroying all of man
So quickly to deceive
With tricks stuffed up his sleeve

Stabbing then twisting the accuser slices you
Stomping and spitting a curse on you all
Death won't avenge to the victors completion
Who's saving their souls from the darkness to fall!

He knows he can't prevail
Thrown to the gates of hell
Forced down on to knee
Thrown to the fiery sea


The Rock

[Music by Dee Harrington and Richard Lynch]
[Words by Richard Lynch]

Life is hard and then you die
Struggle far you don't know why
Empty eyes gazing at you
Turn your back they'll run you through

We are called to stand tall
Eyes upon the Rock

Many come and many stray
Lose their faith they walk away
Turn their back on what they know
What is left where can they go

We are called to stand tall
Eyes upon the One who's love redeems us all
Eyes upon the Rock

Now's the time come one and all
In the light you can not fall
Saving grace is here for you
Ask who've sinned he wants you too


On The Street

[Music by Dee Harrington and Richard Lynch]
[Words by Richard Lynch and John Lynch]

Out on the street
No where to go
Losing my mind
Losing my soul
A beggars life
To live in fear
Lookin' for something

Could take my life
But what a shame
A finger points to blame
I'm looking hard
But can't quite see
I hear a voice
Shouting at me

Now it's time for you to stop running
The time is now salvation's calling

Lookin' for land
Adrift at sea
Will someone have
Mercy on me
Drown in sorrow
Where's my first love
Where is my comfort

A taste of death
Would not be sweet
The devil's fire
Burning beneath
Cries from the heart
To take a chance
Will I go down
Walking the fence

Was all alone
Out on the street
Feeling tired
Down and beat
Then he came
He talked to me
He cleansed my heart

He said move forward
Walk in faith
It's time to watch
The moves you make
Follow the truth
I placed in you
You know what's right
Know I'm with you

Now it's time for you to stop running
The time is now salvation's calling
Jesus is the way for you, that's right


Returning

[Music by Dee Harrington]

[Instrumental]


The Path

[Music by John Mahan]
[Words by Richard Lynch & John Mahan]

I am the false prophet in tribulation
I'm seeking mighty goals and reputations
I serve the prince of hell
He's not forgotten
And there so many fell
And now they're rotten

I search from town to town
To drag who I can down
Don't step in my path

I've got you in my sights
You can't escape me
I've taken all your rights
My mark will set you free
Just let me brand your hide
Assume my genocide
I stand for all to see
My mark makes you like me

Be my device, I'll quickly kindle a fire
Of wrath from my inferno
And savor the lost, who have been tricked by me
My anger rides high for those who've
Escaped me up and through the sky
Then have deprived me and
Still there are some who won't bow down to me

They serve another
A God they can not see
And keep on running from my
Raging terror to be
My satisfaction won't be fulfilled
They must fall down to me
Or I'll have them killed

Don't step in my path


 Through The Sky

[Music by Dee Harrington]
[Words by John Lynch & Richard Lynch]

I could hear the voices shouting
In the blackened night
Feel terror and distraction
On the edge just out of sight
It was there just like a vision
Evil in it's zeal
But the scent of death around me
Let me known it's all for real

Soon the world will see God's face
Raging through the sky
His fiery eyes will find you
So make a choice to live or die

Seven plagues were now upon us
Seven seals were open wide
Seven bowls of wrath were poured out
There was no place you could hide
There was no one left to tell us
The believers disappeared
All the people in confusion
Never knew this kind of fear

Let me tell you this my friend
The truth is to be known
Vengeance, death or victory
The choice is yours, yours all your own
Like the devil seeks his thrill
To quench his thirst to be fulfilled
The prince of death will pay, listen to me


The War Is Over

[Words & Music by Josh Kramer]

The darkness is coming to a close
And in it's grip held fears untold
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
The shackles broke around my heart
I'm thrown about no more on the sea
Yet rip tide still longs to pull me out from the shore

You set me free now I can see
From where I've been enslaved within

You rescued me from the serpent's coil
And all the traps that ensnared my mind
The war is over you won it a long time ago
The truth is sometimes bitter sweet
It's hard to take where it hurts the most
But Lord you're great, the power hits deep down inside

The prince of shadows has lost his hold
His tactics fail, as they unfold
Yet fighting continues in vain until the end
So let battle commence I'm armed for war
You've trained me for the fields of doom
Where many before me fought and many died

The war is over
