Samson Wick With this release, the final missing tracks from the 1992 debut Circle of Dust album are finally re-added to the mix. This album is worth the price for the first three tracks alone. Much of this collection has been recently released (some of it multiple times), but there are some genuine rarities, such as "The Hour of Doom". I especially like the way he clearly made up names for some of these while putting together this collection like "I think this demo is in the full circle documentary". Favorite track: Senseless Abandon (Remastered).

Track Name: Senseless Abandon (Remastered)
The cold of winter now resides where fires once burned bright
Unseen forces waging war for possession of your sight
Allowing walls to crumble leaving armor to decay
The enemy you once engaged steals vital time away

O children how could you ignore your slowly rotting soul
A carnal mind will bring you death sin will take it's toll
From certain death you came to life accepting saving grace
The seed was sown on stony ground you now spit in Savior's face

Hand already to the plow gaze back at what you've lost
Withdraw yourself from servanthood reconsidering the cost
Pride infests your spirit love of money rooting deep
Ignore convictions dying plea now say goodbye morality

Looking for the answers that you once held in your hand
Watch your treasures crumble like a kingdom in the sand
Father time extracts his dues they're getting hard to pay
And even so you turn your back and walk farther away

Why this apostasy for you know your days are few
You know whatsoever you sow will be reaped back by you
Turn back unto the Lord for in Him is life alone
Abandoning the truth you've known is death and it makes no sense at all
Track Name: Technological Disguise (Remastered)
Humanity relentless cycle history repeats itself
We've come so far but not as near
To changing what we really are

(Technological disguise)
(Hide behind electric eyes)

Daily grind 9 to 5 nothing seems to change
Nothing ever seems to change time ticks away
Learn to hate retaliate nothing ever solved
Watch your problems multiply hope divided slipping by

We run from our humanity
Concealed behind technology
The more things change they stay the same
The cycle of mankind

Traitors lacking self control enslaved both body and the soul
Hearts devoid of love and peace possess no fear of God
Bowing down to gods of stone moral values overthrown
Purity aside lust is never satisfied

Government corrupt with lies
Leaders lead with blinded eyes
The future is unknown
The future is well known

Humanity where are we going?
Never mind where we have been
Will the cycle just continue
When beginning runs to end?

(Technological disguise)
(Blinded by electric eyes)

We run from our humanity
Concealed behind technology
The more things change they stay the same
The cycle of mankind
The cycle of mankind

Born from the dust beginnings of man
A seed of disobedience
Stain of the curse we've brought on ourselves
Damnation of the soul
Black roots of sin planted firmly within
The soil of our hearts
One way alone mankind's only hope
Jesus Christ is our salvation
Is our salvation
Deliverance
And our salvation
Track Name: Onenemy (Acoustic)
Open-mouth stares fracturing divide
Empty heart bare emotions coincide
Stolen lungs breathe momentary breath
Empty eyes see secondary death

Four cycles moving on
Three dark days and death is gone
Two wishes to fulfill
Only onenemy to kill

Open-mouth stares, void of speech and dry
Empty heart bare where many failures lie
Stolen lungs breathe the air of darkest dread
Empty eyes see a life already dead
Claimed by the crippled hand of hate

Four cycles moving on
Three dark days and death is gone
Two wishes to fulfill
Only onenemy to kill
Track Name: Demoralize (Cassette Demo 1990)
Force your opinions on the mind of the young
Feeding poison to hungry souls
Prepare them for their self-destruction
Laughing as you watch them die
Lie to me your lie

Make your own concept of what's right and what's wrong
Feeding poison to hungry souls
Take what you want, not what you're needing
Your day of judgment draweth nigh

Demoralize
Converting millions to your lies
Demoralize
Your day of judgment draweth nigh
Track Name: Nightfall (Early Demo)
Deep in the darkness without form and void
The hovering spirit of God
Man given life soon only to die
Fallen by deception

Dwell in the confines of mortality
Gripping the hand of despair
Children of dust blown by winds of distress
Into uncharted futures stare

Again the night falls to darken our dawn
Silence our lips seek refuge from harm again
Children of trial, offspring of pain
Wounds of existence leave scars that remain
Scarred hand of healing waits stretched from the sky
For those who would choose to receive

Chains of oppression, shackles of fear
Forever broken for those who draw near
From storm to shelter, from darkness to light
Wings cast a shadow, a haven from falling night
Track Name: Nightfall (Acoustic) [4-Track Demo 1990]
Again the night falls to darken our dawn
Silence our lips seek refuge from harm again
Children of trial, offspring of pain
Wounds of existence leave scars that remain
Scarred hand of healing waits stretched from the sky
For those who would choose to receive

Chains of oppression, shackles of fear
Forever broken for those who draw near
From storm to shelter, darkness to light
Wings cast a shadow, a haven from falling night
Track Name: Demoralize (HR-16 Demo)
Force your opinions on the mind of the young
Feeding poison to hungry souls
Prepare them for their self-destruction
Laughing as you watch them (die)
Lie to me your lie

The cold concept of what's right and what's wrong
Feeding poison to hungry souls
You better pay for your destruction
Your day of judgment draweth nigh

(Demoralize) Converting millions to your lies
(Demoralize) Your day of judgment draweth nigh
