Track Name: Freedom In Our Failure
People ask if I’m all right
I’m all right, but thanks for asking
Can you see the picture?
The picture is there for seeing
Freedom in our failure
Our failures’ is what we are
We’ve been forgiven, shown mercy
We don’t deserve it

They say nothing in life is free
Well baby take it from me, I know that’s not true
It happened a long time ago
And in that time we were shown
We wont make it on our own
Track Name: Better For You
You lived alone things were messed up
I came to you to fill the cup
You loved me quick with an instant kiss
Now I wonder what I missed
I know I wasn’t perfect that I can see
I just need you to help me believe

Don’t stop your love
Give me one more try
And ill become better
Ill become better for you

Another time for you to grow
Another way for me to show
All the ways that I love you
Now it seems like nothing new
I know I wasn’t perfect that I can see
I just need you to help me believe
Track Name: Brain Tattoo
I’ve been to places; I’ve seen some faces in trees
Honey, let's get dinner
Baby, be a dreamer with me
The man is in the bushes, but all he wants is your money
We don’t think about it, we let him do what he please
We please, we please, we please

I love, can you explain?
The knife is sharper now, so tattoo my brain
The tower is ever growing and I know what they're showing
So tattoo my brain, tattoo my brain

Killers in the courthouse and they have the best seat
Demons in the leaders, they look so good on TV
Manufactured thinking, the assembly line is running clean
They bill us for expenses to their violently produced defenses
They scream, they scream, they scream
Track Name: Change You
They got spies in your heart
They don’t want you to act up
They don’t want you to choose what you believe in your own mind
They’ve got class and wonder
But it’s all one big blunder
They say that were free, doesn’t look that way to me

When you look at yourself,
What they want you to do
Is to change you

America, land of the thieves
Stealing away beliefs
They want you to achieve, nothing at all
Don’t you think about it?
It’s way better for them
Makes it simple to control your thoughts

They’ve got satellites
They want you to bite
Oh what a disgrace this land of the bullshit
Make sure to stay home
Get filled up with those loans
Buy a lot of stuff that you really don’t need

We keep on ignoring
And we keep installing
A most appalling, future for this earth
Now there’s not much to
Say that were gunna do
So we keep on going our own separate ways
Track Name: Look Back
Random soul, where are you trying to go?
Did you know there’s a heavy choice inside us all?

No you don’t have the power within you
You need to see the beauty in our imperfections
It’s going to take more the anything we have to offer
Maybe a holy ghost

Random soul, how do you think you started?
Grab a hold; deflect all this man made garbage

No you don’t have the power within you
You need to see the beauty in our imperfections
It’s going to take more the anything we have to offer
Maybe a holy ghost

Random soul, when will you see the patterns
Find a goal; try to live with mercy and passion

Wont you look back
At some words that were said
On a mountain top
It brought us our all
Track Name: Random
Of all the things that we know and comprehend
Do you think everything’s random?
Could we care about these things?
About these dreams?
Just to end up in the dirt

There’s no reason to feel sad my friend
We danced we cried we did it our way
At least you’ll always know
We danced we cried we did it our way

We let fear cloud our mind and hypnotize
While these things get the best of you
Now I want you to try to comprehend
And think about what if nothing was random?

Maybe one of these days you might start to think
Track Name: Death Is Defeated
What do we really know?
They want you suffering
They want you to detach your soul

We're trying to fill the void
With man made machinery
They don’t want you to see the holes

And Men are filled with pride, so I’ll cry
God came down to the earth and he died

So here’s what I’ve got to say
Lay down your barriers
We are inferior to god
Track Name: In Our Hearts
We are filled up with many desires
Each one coming in by the hour
How long will we let our flesh be in control?
There was an example set a long time ago

There is something in our hearts
Placed there
Look with in

Men are blinded by their own deceit
They think they can claim that they’re complete
How much time will pass until we wake up?
Sacrifice yourself and drink from his cup

My body is slowly rotting away
My mind is constantly changing
My soul is sound and reassured
With the blood of the lamb I am cured

Towers rise and towers fall
Each one claiming to represent us all
Theres only one way to get back to god
And that’s believing in what we're not
Track Name: Gaze
I came home on a Saturday night
Nothing inside was feeling right
Filled up with a lot of question marks
On how my soul got it’s start
Then I realized what was wrong
My pain was misguided, and far too long
The love in my heart was misunderstood
My brain and my body will one day be food

And I rejoice cause I don’t understand
Filled with joy when I feel bad
And it’s ok that I don’t know what will happen next
For I am just a man

I came home on a Saturday night
All of a sudden everything looked right
Our earth is being vandalized
By our sin and by our pride
But its ok and its alright
Because there is no way to hide
Gaze with wonder, at what he’s done
With the eye of faith and hope, be one
Track Name: The Battle Won
Baby we're laughing 'cause we're all nervous wrecks
Baby we're hoping someone will clean up our mess

We're always trying to get back to where we always been
We try to prove to ourselves we got what it takes to win
But in our heart of hearts the deed already has been done
The battle won

Baby we're dancing to an all to familiar tune
Baby we're glancing towards the face of doom

Cant you see the truth clawing away at your feet
If you don't know what's been done, you're always living in deceit
We live in a tricky world, so give it more then a passing thought
The battle won

Baby we're rejecting the one and only love
Baby we're reacting like there's no bellow or above

We're always trying to get back to where we always been
We try to prove to ourselves we got what it takes to win
But in our heart of hearts the deed already has been done
The battle won

Baby we're acting like we're in a Broadway play
Baby we're lacking what it takes to mold this clay

Cant you see the truth clawing away at your feet
If you don't know what's been done, you're always living in deceit
We live in a tricky world, so give it more then a passing thought
The battle won
Track Name: It's The Way
This is how it always starts
My heart falls apart
You’ve got something I want to try
And baby that aint no lie

It’s the way that you walk
It’s the way that you talk
It’s the way that you make me feel so real

This is how its falls apart
My heart knew it from the start
You’ve got something I cant stand
Baby, you’re just too bland

It’s the way that you walk
It’s the way that you talk
It’s the way that you make me feel unreal
Track Name: Beyond The Stone
What should we do?
The truth be told in a hallow tomb
What do we do?
This sinking feeling inside me and you
What do you feel?
On your neck an ancient chill

And all the ways we justify
Our own sins until we die
It’s the devils greatest trick
He plays through the world
Without you knowing it

What do we know?
We come and go, some fast some slow
Why can’t you believe?
Perception is not easy
What’s left to say?
A rhythm in our hearts that floats away
Track Name: Pause
Take me to the temple
Take me to Eden
Take me anywhere away from here
I will show you to the earth
Take me to the honesty
Hold on your policies
Take the time to see who you are
Present me with a worthy pause

And I will honor you
Make me think of something new
And I will honor you
Leave me with some sort of clue
And I will honor you
Leave me with some sort of truth
And I will honor you
Track Name: Harmony
Mystery, shed your light on me
Give me something to be
Lift me up to see
All of your beauty

And I am a son
Am a friend
Am another lost one
Am a leaf on the ground ready to be stepped on
If you just give me a lead
I will feed, I will feed, I will bleed

Harmony, shed your light on me
Make me one to receive
Let me fulfill your need
Be my shelter

Melody, shed your light on me
Give me something to sing
Let me be on your wing
And I will never say never

Destiny, shed your light on me
Be my air to breath
Show me what to achieve
Plant me, I'm your seed, I want to grow
Track Name: Hey Hey Hey
Hey hey hey
When was the last time you could concentrate?
On something great
Before the world washed over your ways

Just when you think that you’ve got it all figured out
Look at yourself and try to realize what its all about
Track Name: Wahooo Blues
Went downtown to the market
Bought myself some cigarettes
Id never that it come to this
Boy I’m a mess
Well you know it aint easy
You know it’s the truth
I’ve been so tired baby
All I want to do is lay next to you

Wahooo
Track Name: Live On
Every government is corrupt
They don’t give a fuck
Lets accept this and move on
Stay in the shadows
Move through the bellows
Tiptoe through the halls
If you want to see change
Start with yourself, you just might find something new
Here’s what you should do
Create something true
And hopefully it will live on

To live on
To live on
You might find some peace of mind
To live on

Everyone is afraid confused and delayed
They don’t know the end of their nose
Try to have some passion
Try to take some action
To effect this world in its growth
If you want things to be different
Start with yourself
I don’t want to hear no more complaints
Here’s what you should do
Create something true
And hopefully it will find its way

To live on
To live on
You might find some peace of mind
To live on
Track Name: Learning To Live
Corners of my eyes
Wipe away the crust
Another day begins
Another day to trust

I'm learning to live, I try
Filter out the lies, ask why again & again

Timing in my head
What a jumbled mess
From now on
I put my faith to the test

I'm learning to live, I try
Filter out the fear, look beyond time again & again

I'm loved by god
How do I know?
I deserve his wrath
Yet, he still leads me on the path

I'm learning to live, I try
Filter out the lies, ask why again & again

I'm never on my own
His love has been shown
Through his only son
With his death I'm known

I'm learning to love, I try
Filter out the fear, look beyond time again & again
Track Name: Smell The Roses
People cant you see
Evil has been in the lead
Stop putting your belief
On what you see on your TV
There’s a pattern that I feel
And it seems to keep happening

Distractions on the way

For you and me
Oh you know its true
All the lies they spew
Keep it hard to see

People please wake up
You know where not the only one
Sharing all this air
We all have the right to breath
No matter what they say
The war machine is here to stay

Distractions on the way
Track Name: Imperial Material
Baby, are we on the road to ruin?
Because lately, all I feel is doom brewing

There are too many shells
Not connecting with themselves
Listening to the help
Getting beat up by the greed
Brought up to just receive and never tell

Honey, can you see past this earth?
Because darling, why does it matter what we do on it?

There are too many shells
Getting filled up with lies
Self deception and tall bribes
Beating up the voice within
They're to smart to deal with sin and it's presence

Darling, have we become disillusioned?
Because baby, all I hear is false information

There are too many shells
Going along for the ride
Thinking it's all justified
They don't ever question the trip
Just as long theres a buck in it
And all the tears that are shed
Over all the unfed
But not a single action done
Ah fuck it, we have won
We're the rulers of the world
Spreading capitalism like a cloud
That will rain down on the earth
Taking control of every birth
As the money keeps rolling in
In the end who really wins?
When we're dead there's nothing to spend
No ego to defend or a health plan

So darling, did you want to rethink the situation?
Track Name: Two Questions
I came down to a question
What for me was good enough?
It was very simple do something that you love
And don’t let the pressures change who you are

I was getting out of control
Baby said she loves that rock and roll
I said I was going to call it quits
Baby said I was full of shit
Ill ask why if I want to
Die if I want to
It’s all part of it
I don’t want to be you

It came down to a question
How should I live my life?
It was very simple be happy with what you’ve got
And don’t let the pressures make you into something you’re not

why isn't really enough for you
Track Name: Everything We'll Never Find
Remember before there were cell phones, ringtones
Life was just a little freer, near
Now you can't get people to stand still, land fills
It seems nothing will quench our desires, fire

We left behind everything we'll never find
Everything that comes to mind is not yours
We could if we could, not that we would

Fake out your own mother, father
Take advantage of the poor
make up your own thing to worship, worship

We left behind everything we'll never find
Everything that comes to mind is not yours
We could if we could, not that we would
Track Name: Devil Pride
Every century it gets more and more old
Violence and anger still have a hold
Every smart man has said peace is the way
Evil don’t want that so they make us pay

My fellow man you’ve gone out of control
When everything you do results in killing someone
My fellow man you’ve gone out of control

Greed has taken over the hearts of man
Feeding a fire that they don’t understand
They do it just to do it because they’re empty inside
Peace and understanding threatens their devil pride
Track Name: In Her Eyes
Hands at your feet
Your standing yards away
I’m wondering if I should say
Something sweet in your ear
I think I will because I am here

And you’ll meet me somewhere in the middle

There is something in her eyes

Never a place
To rest my head
I’m wondering if this should be said
There’s something that I want to do
I think I will because you want me to
Track Name: Naturally
These doubts in my mind are clouding my thoughts because deep in my heart my loves not enough and maybe I need someone to save me

These thoughts in my head are clouding my heart because right from the start I'm dead before I can walk and maybe I need someone to save me

We naturally don't want to believe

Money is my god, that's where I'm putting my trust, giving into lust like it's no big deal and maybe I need someone to save me

Denial is our truth, wealth is our game, everything to blame for our nasty ways and maybe I need someone to save me

We naturally don't want to believe

These things that we think will bring us happiness are instruments of a fallen angel and maybe I need someone to save me

Author of all things put himself on the page so he could rearrange how the story ends and maybe I need someone to save me

We naturally don't want to believe

This battle we face can't be physically seen, so get down on your knees and beg for mercy, no maybe's, the son of man has saved me!
Track Name: Suicide Lovers
Suicide people with their suicide phones
Suicide flowers and suicide poems
Suicide women wont leave me alone
Suicide parents and suicide homes

Suicide creatures with their suicide cars
Suicide letters and suicide bars
Suicide politicians, leave me alone
Suicide weddings and suicide bones

Suicide lovers with their suicide eyes
Suicide smokers and suicide flies
Suicide riddles up and down your back
Suicide schools with their suicide facts

Suicide friends with their suicide thoughts
Suicide drinkers and suicide art
Suicide masses trying to control your head
Suicide leaders and suicide beds

Suicide egos with their suicide ways
Suicide powers and suicide legs
Suicide cowards trying to change your mind
Suicide needles and suicide rhymes
Track Name: The Next Step
Theres an empty feeling we have
Nothing ever gets rid of it
So why don't we step back
Try to look at what we have

On a different plain, in a different (beyond) time, it still shares with us
God wants you to know
Theres no way to get up, if you don't know you fell
God wants you to know
We fallow the law of man and what does it show?
God wants you to know
Its inside us all but its nothing that we've done
God wants you to know

Watch how people are
Its more than you and me by far
Theres a united (trinity) truth
Waiting for you to want to hear

Your heart must be in faith
Or else you'll never be able to face
The perfect defiant grace
It works within you from day to day
Track Name: One Man
I’m trying to see
All the similarities
In the way we breathe
And the way we deconstruct our own minds

It took one man to realize that we’re not dead
The fool is a sinner and I’m looking at me

I’m trying to find
Some peace of mind
In space and time
But it keeps coming back to one very simple thing
Track Name: River That Day
I wanted you, but you didn't want me
We were friends, but I wanted you to see
How good we could have been
None of my actions ever got in

I came across you by the river that day
You seemed sad, I couldn't take you that way
I said some things that were deep in my mind, Anna

After that night I started feeling wound
All those feelings of wanting to be bound
To one person and all there needs
I was about to move, so I had to retreat

I came across you by the river that day
You seemed sad, I couldn't take you that way
I said some things that were deep in my mind, Anna
You are a beauty and you are unique
I looked in your eyes, didn't want to blink
And furthermore you made me think, Anna
Track Name: Life So Don't
We like to think our minds are invincible
That our bodies can’t brake
No matter how much we take
No

All of the times I've looked at my life
I try to have some self-control
Sometimes you just brake down

Now I’m not saying that this is a demand
Or that I know what’s right
Just try to keep up with the fight
Track Name: Completely Unfiltered
Please, be completely unfiltered
Better to let it out then hold it all in
Time has already ended
We’re just living out a higher dream

Love, come back again

Wonder (Stevie), always talks about it
Keep on tryin till you reach the highest ground
Life has already ended
So live it like your not scared to die

Love, come back again
Track Name: Gone
I like to pretend that I don’t need anyone by my, my side
I know that I’m tricking myself once again
Because I don’t want to die alone

When I think about past loves and what they could have been
I know those chances are gone, yeah there gone
At least I dream and slip away to a different scene and know
Something’s are better gone, yeah there gone
Track Name: Drift Away
I played a chord that pleased the lord
But it was all in a dream it was a drift away
Like on a holiday
He said to me “son, don’t you cry even though one day you’ll die”
It’s like a holiday when you drift away

Oh this timing
all these things we cant wrap our heads around
Will one day fade away you and me, you’ll see
Track Name: Mystery Girl
You’re my mystery girl and I don’t know why I want you
You’re my mystery girl I’ve never heard you say a word
You’re my mystery girl and I’ve never felt so helpless

All I know is I want my mystery girl
Track Name: What's Right?
Try to put yourself in others positions
Were all trying to find something to be
Please try to show some kindness
I’m another one trying to understand

What’s right?

Try not to believe everything you hear
Were all told what we think we need to be
Please try to show some alertness
It’s better for everyone who’s trying to understand

What’s right?
Track Name: Hush
Hush, please little darling
You’re starting to fall apart again
Its more then a feeling
Sometimes you need to slow down to win
It’s more then a moment
I don’t want to say calm down again
It never ends
Track Name: Like The Sun
I know we all have our ups and downs, baby he loves you
We can't let pain let us reject the truth, baby he loves you
We all live in the enemy's part of town, baby he loves you

Like a mother loves her child
Like a man loves his dog
Like the sun lights up the sky
Baby, he loves you
Track Name: Thank You, Lord
I was lost, but now am found
I was blind, but now can see
Filled with love, in this broken world
Filled with broken dreams
I do believe

I want to thank you, Lord

Why don’t I?
Why don’t you?
Why don’t we?
Track Name: Good News
Religion offers great advice but I've had my fill of that these days
I'm looking for good news, the kind that sais my soul is saved
Christ said he is the only way to the one who gives all things
So don't be lead astray, open up your heart and let the fear melt away

When will we show up and stop letting our souls be slaves
When will we show up and choose the truth

You say Christ was a nice guy, he didn't give that option
He proclaimed to be the son of god not a motivational speaker
So open up your ears to the one they called Jesus of Nazareth
He'll transform your heart so you can share true love
Track Name: Mary Sue
Mary sue did you hear the news?
It was shocking
All the women and men running around
Defending nothing

Maybe its just me baby
Maybe it’s just me but I don’t know

Mary sue did you see the news
It was lacking
Any sort of information
Worth tracking
Track Name: Figure Me Out
Yeah were all messed up
Don’t get stuck to the surface
Try to chase your dreams
Or they’ll never resurface
Seems like the right thing to do
Seems like the right thing

I just called to see if you could figure me out
Seems like the right thing to do
Seems like the right thing

Yeah were not alone
We’ve got spirits all around us
They want you to get home
Like putting flowers in a basket
Seems like the right thing to do
Seems like the right thing

Figure me out
Track Name: Internet
You can look up anything you want to
It's a lot of fun
Come on now, it's the internet, baby
You know it's for everyone

Internet, what a great gadget

You can be a star if you want to
For everyone to see
Come on now, it's the internet, baby
It's like you're on tv
Track Name: Isn't She
Isn't she pretty, isn't she nice
She probably wants to take me, use me as a human sacrifice
Isn't she pretty, isn't she bold
She probably wants to fit me, right into her tight mold

I need a good christian girl with a troubled past
Maybe she could be covered in tattoos
Take away my blues, tonight

Isn't she pretty, isn't she hot
She probably want to take my heart, tie it all into knots
Isn't she pretty, isn't she smart
She probably wants to take my soul and tear it all apart
Track Name: Grinches
Nobody sais hi in the streets anymore
Nobody wants to know your name
Its sad but it is true
What are we to do?
In a society filled with Grinch’s

So I let my mind get distracted by something good
Smile like I should
I wont be that Grinch
Oh no I wont be that Grinch
Track Name: Stand Up
Moving around
Finding what is found
Makin my way
Searching everyday

Living a dream
Easy as it seems
Follow your way
Don’t be ashamed to say

I wont be tricked anymore
I’m not going to let them win
I am going to stand up
For what I know is true

It’s easy to see
Nothing's as it seems
Start digging deep
They keep it hard to seek

Give it a go
You can make it on your own
Don’t let them trick you
Into thinking that were not the same
Track Name: Timeiseraser
Green should be the color, color of our country’s flag
So when people see it, they can truly know for what they stand
Money is the ruler, ruler of this united land
Busy building castles, those castles made of sand

This shits nothing new
History proves what we do
We are slaves to our feelings
So we hit the bottle to get through
Time is erasing, time is out to trick you
Track Name: Unfold
I’m waiting anticipating this love you see
I’m pouting and shouting because I need to be

Every time I look into her eyes
I know there’s something there
A mystery that I need to unfold
Track Name: The Stranger
Downward spiral, lake of fire
When was this made a joke?
With the knowledge I gain, the more I see
The evil that comes from restless souls

And I feel the stranger on my back

Upward smile, name on file
When was this ever considered living?
The devil has a million tricks
And when he's used them up, he's got a million more

And I feel the stranger on my back
Track Name: Rolling Along
In the park, in the car
In your yard, oh I saw him
In your ear, in your head
Waiting for everything you’ve said, oh I saw him

He was rolling along

In the church, at your work
He’s been everywhere you’ve heard, oh I saw him
In the town, in the hall
Loving every time you fall, oh I saw him
Track Name: Please, Little Darling
Please, my little darling
Don’t you go behind my back
Oh, no
Please, my little baby
Don’t you go behind my back
Oh, no

All these games we play
All these fun little games
All these game we play
We play
