Track Name: I Awake
Maybe I was right,
Maybe I was wrong,
Maybe I just need to love you,

The view is good from here,
The dream is void of fear,
And all our visions smile before us,

Lying on the edge,
Now you are the ledge,
If you could only be a mountain,

The fear you've felt before,
It could be nothing more,
Than noises in a world of silence,

Take your rollercoasters,
make your toasts and turn to dust.

I am of a stream,
The earth it always bleeds,
And veins are giving of the ageless,

The rocks they shame the proud,
For them all is allowed,
They will not evil on the lowest,

Take your roller coasters,
make your toasts and turn to dust.

The sun's a sliver now,
It rests upon my brow,
The heat is here again,
The season's setting in,
And all within my ears,
The sound of dimming years,
In visions I awake,
And all the souls at stake,
Rise to break the ground,
A sense consuming sound,
In visions I awake,
And all the souls at stake,
Rise to break the ground.

Take your rollercoasters,
make your toasts and turn to dust.
Track Name: I Knew
I knew that I was wrong when I,
Used your words against you like a thief does, Like a thief does,
I knew that I was strong when I,
Looked my weakness in the eyes and accused of the lies it told, of all the lies it told,

The world is bold,
And they might try to stand you down,
But men can’t even save their own,
Wide eyed, human kind,
You’re not in control,

The mores of man are brittle,
And they’re changing every day,
Wearing jewels Courting fashion ,
courting fashion like it's all they need,

They flirt with truth a little,
When advantage holds it’s hand,
Turning on them heels
they ache for what they want, Do anything for what they want,

The world is bold,
And they might try to stand you down,
But men can’t even save its own,
Wide eyed, human kind,
You’re not in control,

I knew that I was wrong, when I…..
Track Name: Friend
Breathing such poison,
Desiring to feel,
Something,
outside of yourself,

Friend, I can see a beast behind you,
Approaching slowly,
Don’t be caught,
Asleep where you stand,

You never listened when I told you to run,
You never listened, you never listened,
You never answered when I called out your name,
My heart it quickened, you never listened, no,

Your voice quakes, it trembles,
I hear it faintly,
I see you vaguely,

When you open your eyes,
You once weren’t so desperate,
I remember your true sound,
Twitching in laughter,
Instead of in pain,

You never listened when I told you to run,
You never listened, you never listened,
You never answered when I called out your name,
My heart it quickened, you never listened, no.
Track Name: No Time
If you’re apart,
Take it upon yourself to change,
I know it sounds strange,
But You’ve got to blame yourself,
If there’s a part,
of you that’s dark and sick and lost,
You need to let it go,let it go,
Make it just get and stay gone,

Are you losing?
You’ve got no time,
To become weak.
Are you losing? Are you losing?
You’ve got no time,

Help up, we all need some,
Hope to get us through,
If your legs feel weak,
And your heart speaks, begging, begging for something true,
You may be hopeless, And livin’ restless,
Struggling to hold your own,
Your age has come; your ride is here,
Show us your heart has grown,

Are you losing?
You’ve got no time,
To become weak.
Are you losing? Are you losing?
You’ve got no time,
Track Name: Lift Up Your Eyes
Sure wish I was a bit more gracious,
Sure wish I was a bit more patient,
Sure wish I was a bit more humble,
Sure wish I was a bit more peaceful,
Sure with the devil would stop wanting me,
I’d love to be a handful stronger,
Hold out for whole lot longer,
I’d love to hold up those people,
That need a little help through evil,
Sure wish the devil would stop wanting them,

Lift up your eyes over the ocean,
Carry your weight just as far as you need to go,
Lift up your eyes over the ocean,
I’d love to tell you it will all go as you plan,
I’d love to tell you that you’re safe where you stand,

You tell me that you ain’t no liar,
You tell me that you live the truth,
Tell me who you admire,
Tell me who inspires you,
You might be a fortress, Walls waiting to let down the roof,
You might stay standing but there’s something that you must do,

Lift up your eyes over the ocean,
Carry your weight just as far as you need to go,
Lift up your eyes over the ocean,
I’d love to tell you it will all go as you plan,
I’d love to tell you that you’re safe where you stand,
Track Name: Mercy, Grace
Mercy, Grace, Mercy, Grace,
The blood that warms my face,
Desperate truth, Ruthless love,
Mercy, Mercy, Grace,

Down by the railroad tracks,
A woman holds a long stemmed rose,
The thorns puncture all, The courage and gall,
Except for Mercy, Mercy and Grace,

May the Desert embrace me,
May it swallow me with its grains,
If I’m worthy of dirt,
Might the sand have me first,
If for Mercy, Mercy and Grace.

The Dutchman was told to be lost,
Who could carry the cost,
Of a treasure that taunts, While it hides in your thoughts,
Only Mercy, Mercy and Grace,

And the gold only weighs on the mind,
If it renders the heart dull and blind,
It would govern all hope, it would own us all,
If not for mercy, mercy and grace,

May the Desert embrace me,
May it swallow me with its grains,
If I’m worthy of dirt,
Might the sand have me first,
If for Mercy, Mercy and Grace.

May the Desert embrace me,
May it swallow me with its grains,
If I’m worthy of dirt,
Might the sand have me first,
If for Mercy, Mercy and Grace.
Track Name: I Am Owed Nothing
Nothing is mine,
I shouldn’t claim it,
Borrowing breath,
Petition for grace,

Companions,
I can not lean on you,
Not yours to bear,
Your time is a gift,

Success you dance,
You owe me nothing,
Hypnotist,

I allow my own enchantments,
You smirk, and watch me transfixed,

Who’s name would you call,
If death was at your door,
And all your strength is gone,
Your breath is not your own,
Who’s debt can you pay,
When your tab is at your grave,
The muddy bed you’ve made,
Better fix what you can change,

Strength,
Deciever,
You are not inborn,
You hold me up with provisions, fleeting,

Hope,
You chameleon,
You pass before me, visions,

Who’s name would you call,
If death was at your door,
And all your strength is gone,
Your breath is not your own,
Whose debt can you pay,
When your tab is at your grave,
The muddy bed you’ve made,
Better fix what you can change,

I am owed nothing,
But to lay my body down,
When you’re breathing,
Be reminded by the sound,
Yes I got troubles,
But you can melt them all away,
You can melt them all away,
love can fill your burden’s place
Track Name: Picture You
Remembering it still,
The glory and the thrill,
I'd never get my fill of your time,
So precious and pure,
So selfless and sure,
I never deserved your smile,

Though love it can be strange,
The passion and the rage,
How could I let it change my sight,
And all my guilty words,
The ones designed to hurt,
they weigh on me and poison my life.

Picture you,
Before me,
Hollow now,
I'm sorry,
I feel it,
Running in my veins.

In the years since your last breath,
And the hole in me you left,
Are changing me as cold rivers wind,
Oh never let me,
A man of bitter deeds,
I owe it to the weeds at your grave.

Picture you,
Before me,
Hollow now,
I'm sorry,
I feel it,
Running in my veins.
Track Name: Heavy
Tell me what you’re composed of,
On what do you feed,
I hear, where you find your thoughts,
That’s where you will be,
I was stunned,
Like a child with no air in his lungs,
Face pale as a nurse’s gown,
A world of desperation folding on me now,

I could stack it all a mile high,
But a dead man’s grave can only be so wide,

If your, heart is heavy with an ugly chain,
you got to cut it lose, cut it lose again,
I got to warn you truly when you do my friend,
Be sure and root it out,

Well I held hands with courage,
I broke bread with my greed,
But neither one brought me no release,
I filled up my belly,
I fed all my needs,
But my selfishness, taunted me,

I could Pile it all a mile high,
But a dead man’s grave can only be so wide,

If your, heart is heavy with an ugly chain,
you got to cut it lose, cut it lose again,
I got to warn you truly when you do my friend,
Be sure and root it out,

What’s in your mind,
It's consuming your life,
What’s in your mind,

When your, heart is heavy with an ugly chain,
you got to cut it lose, cut it lose again,
I got to warn you truly when you do my friend,
Be sure and root it out.
Track Name: Relief
I am not absolute,
Though I am here for you,
The world could cut me down,
And I would be gone too,
There’s only so much,
That I can do,
To save you from falling down,
And pulling me right through,

I want more life,
I want more belief,
I want more spiritual,
To pull down more relief,
From my day to day,
Consumerism theif,
From my day to day warring soul,

Forgive me, for you’ll see,
Though in this moment, I seem so alive,
But you’ll see, as I cease to breathe,
The sorrow in my eyes, as I leave you behind,

I want more life,
I want more belief,

I want more spiritual,
To pull down more relief,
From my day to day,
Consumerism thief,
From my day to day warring soul,

Don’t forget us,
Though I won’t be here,
Recall the heart in my laugh the joy in my shout,

And days remembered,
Marked by such fear,
Courageous as I walk I still doubt,
And without this days,
Just pass in haze,
I’m sick from thoughts of you,
And as for those fears,
They’ll drown in years,
Of dreaming,
Of dreaming,
Walk in right, walk the plank,
Risk your life and you will thank me,
Bear your words and hold your rank,
Face your mind and clear it quickly,
Strive for light and strive for beauty,
For in it’s justice and in it’s duty,
I’ll strive to channel all these through me,
And aspire to not let this die alone,
Can’t let this die alone.

I want more life,
I want more belief,
I want more spiritual,
To pull down more relief,
From my day to day,
Consumerism theif,
From my day to day warring soul.
Track Name: Here
All of your hatred,
Know it’s just how you feel,
Don’t you indulge it,
Or let it believe it’s real,
Mind, crippled wallowing and blind,
Let the cutting coil unwind, unwind, rebuild,
Rise off the ugly ground

All of your courage,
Know that it fills your sails,
And the weight of your reason,
Know that it tips the scales,
Strength, you must preserve it in its length,
Nourish every ounce that’s in you, fight the darkness in your life,
until you fade to black,

Now come back from the distance you’ve made for yourself,
And bring out all the gifts that you have found,
Say goodbye to all your vices, the troubling things that keep you bound,

All of your life force,
Know that it’s all you have,
And the truth of the matter,
Is it’s not even yours,
Cold, brings you sickness when you’re old,
Ages drown you years unfold,
You’re finished breathing now,

I'll come back from the weakness I've made for myself,
And divide all the happiness I’ve been allowed,
Hear no more the vivid lies, or fear things that break me down,

I don’t want to lose you friend just keep on looking up,
Can’t do nothing for you unless you want it for yourself,
I will lift you up now if you could love you in return,
I sit and watch you struggle while your stubborn stomach burns,

Give all you can,
Survive the weather,
Track Name: Rise
There’s dead in the valley,
We rise in the morning,
Wandering the field,
Sewing the ground,

Barren consumption,
Hungry forever,
Don’t become fuel,
For the earth and its lust,

Because man can not feed it,
With his wars or his weakness,
We each fall asleep,
Till the change has been made,

And sleep is not waking,
So don’t be mistaken,
Your thoughts will all leave you,
When you’re dead in the ground,

Dead in the ground,
No murmurs or sounds,
No memory is found,
From the dead in the ground,
Dead in the ground,
No murmurs or sounds,

So stare at your hands,
As they’re wasting away,
And the things that they’ve done,
Don’t cease to degrade,

In a moment of panic,
Your heart begins first,
As flesh begs so earnest,
Just to mingle with dirt,

Dead in the ground,
No murmurs or sounds,
No memory is found,
From the dead in the ground,
Dead in the ground,
No murmurs or sounds,

Your body it whispers,
Till the years when it yells,
That you need one who’s greater,
And you can’t save yourself,
No you can’t save yourself,
You can't save yourself,
You can't save yourself child,
You can't save yourself.
