"It's Your Choice" was the band's first self-released demo EP, available only at live shows in the late 90s into the early 00s. The original Tomb lineup featured Dean Watson on vocals. This long out-of-print EP is a classic DIY releasee from before when mp3s, protools and cheap cd runs became common.

Fan-favorite songs "Listen" and "Never Sleeps" were re-recorded for the band's 2005 self-titled CD. This is the only place to get recordings of "Pain Killer," "Lost" and "Echo."


released August 8, 1999

Dean Watson: Lead vox, other guitar
Nathanael Sterr: Lead guitar, other vox
Anthony Sterr: Bass guitar
Marcel Dyck: Drums

Track Name: Pain Killer
Look into my world
See what's there
And then tell me
What is it you see
A life that's full?
A life that's free?
Come into my world
Let me show you all around
Here's my falling life
Here's my lying on the ground

Pain taken away from me
All of it to bear
Nailed to the cross because
He really cares
Slapped Him in the face
Never stopped to care
See the nails in His hands?
I put them there

God I'm sorry
Please forgive me
God I'm sorry
Please receive me

Look into my world
See the sin
And lies that haunt me
But in all of this
Only one side truly frees me
Come into my world
Let me show you all around
Watch me get up
Here's the new strength
I have found

Look into my world
See my life, hear my calling
Calling from a God
I say yes, no more falling
Come into my world
Share this love
Share this calling
Sacfice I will
I will stand
No more falling
Track Name: Never Sleeps
Rage, the one who wants to kill you
Let it out
Pain, this hurt soul brings you
There is no doubt
Longing to kill, crucify
See the hate, in his eye
Nothing have you done to them
but being born black is a sin?

Hate is born
The innocent cry
Hate is born
They all will die
Hate is born
The mother weeps
Hate is born
It never sleeps

Death, is what is here to greet you
Turn and run
Lead, sinks in your back
From their gun
You long to live, in blood soaked cries
That is a right, that they deny
Have you done to them
They don't care
Murder him
Track Name: Echo
Fear, clouds the mind of the broken
Shock, life's door is opened
To the world
Death, to what is inside them
The child, turns it's head in horror
It can not run

Echo past the gates
Echo through the grave
Shattering the earth

Bleed, yes I cry for you
Pain, know this has brought you
It's not your fault

Live, see how the child loves you
Cells, it won't hurt to take them
That's all a lie

Live must live
Their alive

Love what pain has brought
Give a second thought
Slip into their shoes
Can't you see
Hate you it does not
Love from you is sought
Looks to you for life
Can't you see from their eyes
Track Name: Lost
Spiralling down into a quagmire
Of triumphant desires
Forgive me Lord
This world has prevailed again
And I can't do this
And this life cannot survive
In a vacuum of desires
Lash out
Hid the pain inside

Save me Lord I'm finished
Help me Lord I'm lost
Save me Lord I'm finished
Then I'll turn my back on you

Spit in your face
Cause I can get along without You
At the mercy of my stupidity
My flesh being torn from my bones
Like spikes in my skin
Ripping away, flay my soul
From these bones
I don't deserve to win

Do I really want to change?
I am so lost without You

I tell you the truth my brothers
I am not lost I am found
I am found and I am free
I am free cause Jesus saved me
I call out to God
I bend my knee
I call out to God
I cry save me
Track Name: Listen
Open the book now
You say the lies come
You've fallen from grave
Where do you run?
Open your eyes
You'll see you're falling
Straight into hell
It's just begun

Open your heart
Ask what you long for
To be loved
It's no surprise
Depression crawling
Up inside you
See the truth
Open your eyes

See the truth
Die inside you
Never learn
From where you've been
And despair haunt you
At yourself
You point the gun

I am on the rock of salvation
Where I cannot fall
I can hear the voices speaking
Yes I hear the call
I will stand up for my Savior
I will give my life
Give it up
You cannot beat him
Now sheath your knife

Get up on the rock of salvation
Where you cannot fall
Chris can heal the wounds inside you
Can't you hear Him call?
He is crying out
"I love you, let Me take your pain
I bled and died to save your soul
And I'd do it all again!"
