Track Name: Boy and Arrow
Up a low lit street, to a blue lit room

Sits a wide eyed girl who resembles you

She might look just the same, moves her hair to hide the pain

The chosen one is far too numb to care at all
 


Will you change your mind?

If you don’t realize
It’s the end of you and I



These are wasted times, you have stumbled through

I’ve spent all of mine, watching over you

What I need is your voice, can’t you see you have a choice

If you return you have not learned, don’t ask me why

It’s the end of you and I


What of our chance, our fate, don’t let it slip away

One shot will spark a change in you
 

Aim at your heart, steady nerves, and let it fire away

Brighter days return for me and you
Track Name: Even Jesus
You know he used to be king
A young man with the crown
Never knowing the feeling of being let down
The record told of a hero on the local scene
How quickly they have forgotten
How a hero is brave because he dreams
We can’t take back what now has been said

Wake up tonight and meet me I’m your distraction
I’ll be just like a ghost from former days
When the suns on the rise we will arrive at the mansion
Time is running down while we wait
So won’t you pray?

Take a little of my time, and I’ll turn you around
We are alone here, we are living, and we can’t be found
Do you need a distraction to save you now?
We are as old as we feel like, feel the joy that falls around you now
We can’t take back what now has been said
And if you could, then tell me when

Wake up tonight and meet me I’m your distraction
I’ll be just like a ghost from former days
When the suns on the rise we will arrive at the mansion
Time is running down while we wait

Wake up tonight and me your distraction
Kiss me like I’m the one that got away
When the suns on the rise we will arrive at the mansion
Time is running down while we wait
So won’t you pray?
Track Name: The Lion
He turns to face the warmth of her
Remembers now what has occurred
What’s here at night is lost at dawn
What lives in dreams by mornings gone

All this life waiting for a quiet time
To leave behind a world so cold
He walks alone

May joy fill your heart, when we fall apart
Strangers we’ll become, burned out like the sun

All your life waiting for a quiet time
To leave behind a world so cold
He walks alone
Track Name: Semi-Automatic
I don’t hear you tonight, on and snow covered drive, where am I?

I can’t feel you within, there’s a hole where you been, the whole time

The bottle will not to get me through, lost within the sound with more to prove, calling out
 


Love, love the blinding 
Love, love surround me now

We’re beaten, we’re broken, better now


You have fooled me before, thought that I’d known for sure, denied the signs, all lies


The night will bring a rush that leaves too soon, there is not a fix compares with you, still I try



Love, love the blinding 
Love, love surround me now
 


I did not care for our slide, feel the memories of past lives, I did not see that when I say goodbye, I release what I can’t find



Love, love the blinding 
Love, love surround me now

We’re beaten, we’re broken, better now
 


Try again love till when I run you down
It seems every morning that I’m losing ground
Track Name: Fragile Mind
No more lies

It’s felt so wrong for far too long

Is what I’ve become all I truly am now?
 


We sleep in fear, of what’s to come


At night we escape, to where no one dare tells us where to go
 


For we the free have all we need

I’ll walk through the unknown, when I decide to say goodbye, to this fragile mind

All that I will need is here within my hands

And I don’t have to try to make you understand

It’s here within my hands
Track Name: We Breathe In
Dead in the water, you and I will not survive

Through taking orders, all from you
 


We breathe in


Move through the night
 


I hear them calling, you can tell them what you like

No more disorder, away I move
 


We breathe in


Move through the night
 


Once you were a chosen one

Now changed and forever gone


While you try to restore your old control, we breathe



I will not break
Track Name: Couch Sitting Rattlesnake
There's a light sliding through
Stays awhile in the room

My companion this night

What a mess we have made and now all that remains is the silence that binds

Eyes open, mind open
While the rest of this town sleeps

Thoughts that I left behind, now haunt me

Now the movement of trees

Like a hand in the breeze

How they taunt me unkind

Like a storm fed with waves 

You have grown just the same

Here within me you hide

Eyes open, mind open

While the rest of this town sleeps

Thoughts that I left behind, now haunt me

A thousand doubts meant to pain 

Will not drive me away

I have changed, re-engaged

I decide my own fate


I fight to free my mind, yet I can't sleep
Track Name: Steelman
Here we stand not heading warnings

Here we stand now left behind

We deny our fear of falling

Walk like steelmen on the sky



Will we make it out alive?

Will we make it out alive?



Take a breath love though it feels like

There’s no air for you and I

Runaway on endless highways

Celebrate your fleeting life
 


Will we make it out alive?

Will we make it out alive?
 


These old roads are still home you see

In this valley, they will bury me

When all falls down, let it fall like rain

We’ll hold the weight
 


Will we make it out alive?
 

Will we make it out alive?


Brother give me strength to stand up

Mother sing me a song you‘ve made up

Father tell me where we’ll end up

Lover save me before we wake up
 


Brother give me strength to stand up

Mother sing me a song you‘ve made up

Father tell me where we’ll end up

Lover save me now

Track Name: Crash of Waves

On the day we began I was touched by your hand
 never more alive


In the halls of our lies, we were safe we survived 
within our own minds


So don’t let them follow us down to where we hide
 


One last night, one only

One chance to taste what can’t be saved

One last time, with you only

Call out my name before the fall
 


If we stay here inside, only peace that we will find 
just close the door


But you let them follow us down to where we hide



One last night, one only

One chance to taste what can’t be saved

One last time, with you only

Call out my name before the fall
 


You know we were meant to fly



One last night, one only

One chance to taste what can’t be saved

One last time, with you only

Call out my name before the fall
Track Name: One in Three
Watch the world begin, where we’re free from sin, for another try

Feel the cooling wind, run across our skin from Atlantic skies

Won’t you save me? 
Embrace me

There will be no ending

How we’ve nearly drowned

There will be no more night swelled with our pride

Now that we can finally breathe

We are healing, there is more to see

Under black skies, you’ve opened my eyes into brighter places

Daylight is when we realize there is no replacing

Fallen, empty and scarred by wars not worth waging
North Star, shine like you are, with you’re white light save me

Under black skies, you’ve opened my eyes into brighter places

Daylight is when we realize there is no replacing

North Star, shine like you are, with you’re white light save me 
 

Track Name: Through the Gate
To my greatest companion, for all that you given
How I yearn to ease your pain

I don’t know if you can hear me, as your eyes close beside me

May you dream of younger days

And if you go, I’m leaving

To heaven through hell it’s you I’ll see

And if you go, then go with me

If you don’t believe I’ll make you see

Like everything you leave too soon

No child don’t you cry, I’ll follow you

Oh the years go quickly in a world that’s unforgiving

I am blessed to have known your name
And when god calls upon thee
to begin that graceful ending

I will find my way through the gate

And if you go, I’m leaving

To heaven through hell it’s you I’ll see

And if you go, then go with me

If you don’t believe I’ll make you see

Like everything you leave too soon

No child don’t you cry, I’ll follow you
