Lyrics: Dan Robins
Music: Sean O'Leary
Recorded March-April 2022, The Refuge, Vancouver, BC
Revelation 13:15-18

lyrics

A heads up … a warning
Though you’ve ignored it before
These birth pangs foreshadow
Jesus waits at the door
Earthquakes and famine
Pestilence and war
What’s coming is dire
Great danger’s in store

You’ve spent a lifetime sitting on the fence
Saying things will work out is your confidence
Being basically good is your rock of defense
But what’s unfolding now’s no coincidence

Do not take the mark, do not take the mark
No matter what, no matter what
Do not take the mark, do not take the mark
Your only chance is don’t take the mark

If you remain when millions at once disappear
The gospel will be preached amidst chaos and fear
Read scripture for yourself, the message is clear
Know for a fact, the tribulation is near

Do not take the mark, do not take the mark
No matter what, no matter what
Do not take the mark, do not take the mark
Your only chance is don’t take the mark

C’mon you say, why keep flogging this stuff
You’ve heard it before, enough is enough
But when a watchman speaks, it’s not off the cuff
Shake your head, roll your eyes, but this is no bluff

Do not take the mark, do not take the mark
No matter what, no matter what
Do not take the mark, do not take the mark
Your only chance is don’t take the mark
Your only chance is don’t take the mark
Your only chance is don’t take the mark

A beast will arise out of the sea
Establishing rule by guile diplomacy
Performing wonders and signs that deceive conclusively
Demanding worship as God in vile blasphemy

You think it’s all been a joke for centuries
A myth revealed by degrees
You’ve never been driven to your knees
But when reality hits, your heart will seize
When reality hits, your heart will seize

Do not take the mark, do not take the mark
No matter what
Do not take the mark, do not take the mark
No matter what
Do not take the mark, do not take the mark ...
