    A collection of songs, in diverse styles such as Latin, World, New Age, Pop, Middle Eastern and a little Rock. The music depicts the soul's desire to transcend the limits of the material world and to soar in the spiritual realm.

Persecution 5:08
Composed by Elika Mahony

lyrics

Persecution

They dedicated their lives to a noble purpose
Innocent victims, Imprisoned for their beliefs
Their suffering knew no bounds
Only comforted by prayerful sounds

Their children suffer the same fate
Subjected to an endless hate
Denied basic human rights
Yet guided by a greater light

Why do you think you can stop the world from knowing
Prevent the truth from showing
You can't block the sun from shining

Pressured to recant their faith
Their Holy Places destroyed,
Their graves unearthed, no place to bury their dead
Denied the right for education
Riddled with false accusations

Why do you think you can stop the world from knowing
Prevent the truth from showing
You can't block the sun from shining

You can burn their homes but not their spirits
Seize their land but not their souls

Why do you think you can stop the world from knowing
Prevent the truth from showing
You can't block the sun from shining

Why do you think you can block the sun
You can't stop us from shining
Seize our land but not our souls

Why.... do you think you can stop the world from knowing
Prevent the truth from showing
