Take the broken pieces And put them together Fragments scattered abroad It would take me forever I don’t know where to start It’s all fallen apart All over the floor I find particles of my heart Particles, particles of my heart I know You care I can see Your hand in there I know You care I can see Your hand in there I can see Your hand in there Particles, particles of my heart I cry into Your hands You wipe away my tears I give You my brokenness You still all my fears All my fears All my fears

I will not exist in uncertainty Constantly pleading for more evidence With every touch I question further Until the death of trust is imminent How do I know You are here When I can’t feel When You hide Your face When all is desolate I will not give in I will still trust You to sustain me By Your grace I live Holding on to nothing I can see This grace surpasses intellect Liberating my mind to trust and believe I proceed without reassurance A blind beginning to see I know You are still here When I can’t feel When You hide Your face When all is desperate I will not give in I will still trust You to sustain me By Your grace I live Holding on to nothing I can see Holding on to nothing I can see My world is shifting My grip is slipping All I knew had to collapse For all things new to come to pass

You who labor and are heavy laden Come to the throne of grace and receive mercy For the eyes of God Move throughout the earth To strengthen the hearts Who are completely His Sovereign Counselor, Upholder I will not be disgraced I set my face like flint I know I will not be put to shame Sovereign Counselor, Upholder I know I will not be disgraced I set my face like flint I know I will not be put to shame Renewal Renewal

Groaning internally, screaming Comforted by advancement of our understanding The solution comes when we see we don’t have it The solution comes when we see we don’t have it Our movement in circles, dance of the despondent A facade to deny reality oh what we will do to fool ourselves It’s alright to hurt, it’s alright It’s alright to hurt, it’s alright Determine in your heart to acquire the hope that is unseen This hope will transpire amidst your adversity Insisting that others satisfy our longings And shielding ourselves from the disappointment Love doesn’t demand its own way when concerning another Love doesn’t demand its own way when concerning another Determine in your heart to acquire the hope that is unseen This hope will transpire amidst your adversity Our purpose is not self-protection Perfect love casts out all fear of rejection Freedom comes when we forgive Hold your ground and face your fears… will fall away Hold your ground and face your fears… will fall away

Only that I might know You Sought me out while I rebelled How could there be mercy for me Then for you to spare…me from hell Taking it upon Yourself No greater love Taking it upon Yourself I only asked You to touch me But with Your hand came healing To even hear You speak Didn’t think it would make…me complete Taking it upon Yourself No greater love Taking it upon Yourself A hand reaching down Raise me up From this hollow I’ve dug enough No one else will do what You’ve done There will be no other one God You are great God You are good There is no other God than You Your faithfulness endures forever and ever

Premonitions exceeding my soul's reach The expression that evades me Bring this petition to the castle Send reinforcements before we unravel I combat the void to inhale Grown so weary of waiting Give motion to my profession The window is closing We call for You We call upon Your name Unleash war The battle belongs to the LORD

Established beneath the sun He set us as a diamond The light that gave us life Is the light that we've run from Impressed by the darkness of night This darkness we've become Outpouring the blood of Jesus Outpouring His love for you With nothing we confess, we are the harlot But our hope comes from the throne Our sins unto Him wearing the scarlet He calls us His very own Outpouring the blood of Jesus Outpouring His love for you Lay waste to all indecision His heart is broken for you Retribution had found its provision When His body was broken for you Outpouring the blood of Jesus Outpouring His love on you

Living in unceasing darkness I cannot see the beginning or the end Spirit enters in to access my heart and remain Resurrect the dead Only in You are we alive You are the Deathless We will live though we die This day to bring forth my reconstruction Awaken me A new life is born of the blood, of the water, and Spirit Resurrect the dead Only in You are we alive You are the Deathless We will live though we die Truly no man can ransom another, or give to God the price of his life, for the ransom of their life is costly and can never suffice It's rotting away all that I don't need It has no life source anymore I am heir to this fortune Don't presume I'm going to toss this away For whoever wants to save their life will lose it It's all that I've ever had that was real It's all that I've ever had that was real You're all I've ever had that was real You're all I've ever had that was real It kills me, let's through a funeral in honor of me It kills me, let's through a funeral in honor of me What shall a man give for his soul? Oh, One on the cross who was sacrificed You have delivered me from hell We have passed out of death into life

I won't throw away my confidence LORD grant me strength to persevere We are not of those who turn away But who have believed and are saved Ask and you will receive Leave behind all disbelief Faith is the substance of things hoped for The evidence unseen My desire is for You My heart is burning to know Your love We count as blessed those who endure In the face of suffering Put no confidence in the flesh His power perfected in weakness I press on to take hold Of that to which I have been called Whatever was gained I now consider loss For whose sake I have lost all Love the LORD, all his faithful people The LORD preserves those who are true to him Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD. My desire is for You, My heart is burning to know Your love

about

Fortis Amor's first LP has been in the works for well over a decade. Most songs were originally written between 1998 and 2005 before the EP's were written. Saving the best works until the time was right and it could be done to the fullest of it's potential.

Fortis Amor takes aggressive polyrhythmic metal and balances it with refined and beautiful melodies. You will find elements of post-meta and progressive metal. The landscape of this album is not narrow nor predictable due to it's broad range of instruments and atmospheric delivery. A electric guitar and drum heavy album that contains, systems, orchestra, acoustic guitars, and other percussion instruments. Also plenty of vocal melodies that you will want to sing along to and guttural screaming you find in the heaviest of metal.

Featured guest musicians: Jack Daniels(War Of Ages & Hope For The Dying), Zack Uidl(former 7 Horns 7 Eyes), Chris Fullam(Flood Walker), Billy Z Duke(Wrong Windows), Tommaso Zillio, Josh Beetler, David Sertl, Bethany Baily, Dylan Williams, Guy Onraet
