Track Name: Terminal
It was evident that I couldn't see
Because I mistook it for love
No I wasn't blind
I just chose to keep my eyes closed
I wanted to pretend
I wanted to believe this meant something

Opening my eyes meant... meant reality
Reality meant disappointment
Take me from this place

It's absurd how our convictions become less as we grow old
It's bizarre how love loses it's strength as the seasons change
Oh how a seed; It grows in the hearts of men
It takes root inside our veins; to our thoughts

Light, love, all of the above
Faith, integrity
All these things I thought I knew were fake
Take me from this place

It's terminal
It's terminal
They way I think you are the cure
Track Name: Calm & Collected
The night has turned to morning
The clouds above are soaking up the sea
I'm thinking of the future
And the complex things that always worry me
The rain outside might flood my house
Am I drowning in my sleep?
All the water in my lungs might fill too high so I can't breathe

I can feel the light above my head
There must be something more to this
Uncertainty is controlling me

Darling are you waiting
For the stars above to grant the wish you made?
To restore your innocence
And erase the thoughts that have plagued your mind each day?
You're certain of what's right and wrong
It's not a matter of ignorance
You're just immune to love because you give yourself to everyone

I can feel the light above my head
There must be something more to this
Uncertainty is controlling me
Yeah.
When I close my eyes you're all I see
Bring me back to reality
Calm, collected, and controlled
It's overrated

Slow down; your life is just beginning
So you can slow down

I feel the light above my head
There must be something more to this
Uncertainty is controlling me
When I close my eyes you're all I see
Bring me back to reality
Calm, collected, and controlled
It's overrated
Track Name: Ocean Song
I'll swim in the ocean
The salt in my eyes makes me blind to the distance
As I drift away slowly
My eyes gently open
I can't see the shore
All the fear in my head has taken control of my mind

Can you see through the notion that we're all the same?
Do you feel disconnected from the ones that you need?
Love is such a complex concept to swallow
All the fear in my head is taking control

Of my mind
Of my mind

Let's dream of the days when our hearts were still pure
When we had everything even though we were poor
The waves will expel you unto the sand
So just breathe in the air
Oh give up control!

Help me find
That peace of mind
Let's dream of the days when our hearts were still pure
When we had everything... we were poor
Track Name: Diamond In the Mine
I fell asleep at the wheel again
I passed out cold
I woke up in the forest
Far from the road
I came across the path of magical animals
They said, "Boy you're still only sleeping, but while you are here... we'll sing"

I fell asleep by the camp fire amused
I woke up in my own bed confused
I laid there for awhile to think about it
Of course it was just a dream but those words were true

Keep your head up
Don't let life get you down
You know time is not your friend
Calm yourself down and wipe those cold tears away
And know that love is real
It's just a diamond in the mine that you gotta find on your own

I think I'll take this whole day
I'll wander the town
I'll find the ones with their heads low
I'll sit them down
I'll look them straight in the eye and tell them

Keep your head up
Don't let life get you down
You know time is not your friend
So calm yourself down and wipe those cold tears away
And know that love is real
It's just a diamond in the mine that you gotta find on your own
Track Name: Projector
It's time to go
It's time to leave
You're going back the way you came
This little town that you passed through
In this journey of a life
You met a boy with love to give
That tender heart he gave to you
He didn't know what else to do
Because he had never let anyone in

How can you not feel this too?
How can I erase you from my mind?

"You don't have to leave
You can stay here with me
But if there's nothing left for you I understand"

My mind was a projector
My eyelids were movie screens
When I dreamt about you it played the perfect scenes

How can you not feel this too?
How can I erase your from my mind?

How human we are
How fragile we are
Our hearts are paper thin
I know that the past
Is just broken glass
The shards might cut your skin
Track Name: Heart Of Wax
Collect my bones and throw me out to sea
Take all my wealth and give it to my family
"Captain sir,
How did things turn out this way?”
I'm not a righteous man, but all I can do is pray

Why is there reasoning in doubt?
This heart of wax will melt away
Leaving no shape
Look up
The lighthouse on the shore
It's blinding light is comforting but so far away

My ship is sinking
I've lost control
Iv'e been divided
Body and soul
Do not fear what the monsters may bring
Something in the sky is controlling everything
You'll be alright

Why is there reasoning in doubt?
This heart of wax will melt away
Leaving no shape
Look up
The lighthouse on the shore
It's blinding light is comforting but so far away

Follow
These lights will bring you home
Follow
These lights will bring you home

Why is there reasoning in doubt?
Why is there reasoning in doubt?
Track Name: Bones
An empty shell with nothing left that's all I am
I'll fake my righteousness
Force a smile we're in denial but now I see
The foolish attempts to be
The puppet on a string
So fake yet we're convinced that the movements that we see are real
It's unfortunate the strings are tied to a liar
Who eats and sleeps and breathes deception

But it goes to show there's no fulfillment in a life like this
Yet we take and we take
Until there's nothing left to hold on to.

This house seems to be haunted by the memory of something I used to love
Now the walls are closing in on me
I swear to God
You're watching me from above
As I attempt to write these words on paper
I'm sure you know I don't have a clue
Of what it is I'm trying to accomplish by dwelling in this mess of things

But it goes to show there's no fulfillment in a life like this
Yet we take and we take
Until there's nothing left to hold on to.
It goes to show there's no fulfillment in a life like this
Yet we take oh we take
Until there's nothing left to hold on to.

No I can't see the wind
But I feel it as it blows the leaves
Your body's in the ground
But I know you're safe and sound
In the arms of Jesus

No I can't see you
But I feel you in my bones
I feel you
I feel you in my bones
Track Name: Brutal Atmosphere
Walking down an empty road
A tree within the soil
I'll lie beneath it's wilting leaves and I'll stare up at the clouds
So many imperfections with everything I see
I don't want to stay here anymore
There's nothing left for me

A stagnant brutal atmosphere
It hangs above the clouds
The sky it turns from blue to grey
The rain hits the ground
I will of course seek shelter, but these leaves they will not do
The water falls but after all this world is not my home

Forty years in the womb
I'll try to understand
I don't feel what I should feel
I don't know what I should know
Track Name: Floating Through
The line between my heart and yours is thinning with each passing day
The world outside we're petrified of everything we can't conceive
Tell my why we medicate ourselves
Oh how we dwell in self inflicted hell

We float though our lives begging for a reason
For the things we can't understand
It's never ending

If dreams were made of empty air I'd fall asleep I would not care
The dreams of you sustain my soul
They fill the void
That empty hole in my chest
They tell me I am fine
Progress; it happens gradually with time

We float though our lives begging for a reason
For the things we can't understand
It's never ending

I see the sky
It opens as angels float toward you
They tell you there's a reason for the things you've been put through
I know it's all we have
The days pass by, but it's okay
Because the love that we possess will keep us strong
Until the end
Track Name: I Know
The years they pass
The seasons change
Oh God I just don't feel the same
This awful doubt invades my mind
The wind, the rain, the passing time
It's true I know, I know, I know
They say that you are there
But what if every word they say is just a foolish lie?

The subtle voice inside my mind
It tells me there is truth to find
Recalling when my father said
"Son, you know that grace is all we have"
I know, I know, I know
It haunts me in my sleep
The thought the possibility you were never there at all

So I've given up control
I know the ground beneath our feet will fade away
I've found, I've realized I am branches in the wind
Regardless of how much I sway
I will never drift away

Don't fall through my hands
Take me somewhere safe were I can stay...
Beneath all I am
There's so much more that's left inside

Don't fall through my hands
Take me somewhere safe were I can stay
Beneath all I am

There’s so much more that's left inside of me
Track Name: Carry On
There's something in the air
It's taking me
To the place were I can't see much of anything
Is there peace within this place?
Or is it apathy?
Oh quench this grief with grace and set me free

Silence brings me peace
A beautiful release

A thousand burning leaves on a scorching tree
The smoke it fills my lungs
I cannot breathe
We're searching for a taste of clarity
In a room that's filled with eyes/ice and sympathy

Silence brings me peace
A beautiful release
The sweetness of this place
We'll sleep tonight to see your face
To see your face

Carry on
Carry on
Carry on
Carry on

Hallelujah.
Carry on.
