Track Name: The Poisoning
When the fog just will not lift
Stuck for a moment, then years of it
Bitter gray your aura speaks
Of loneliness, it’s the only theme

Life is long, we’re not made to understand it
You feel love, but it the end it you couldn’t give it
Alone we come, alone we stand, alone we go
All we learn here is that we do not know

The rise, the fall, the guilt, the shame
How much right does it take to wash the wrong away?
From the bitter pill of passing days
In the blood of man the poison stays

Has our God left our side?
Was he there all the nights we cried?
If he speaks still we don’t hear
Perhaps it’s his word that we fear

God I’m lost, I could really use some saving
Step right in my faith is wavering
My heart is standing in shadows and denial
I may drop before I see my souls revival

The rise, the fall, the guilt, the shame…

Tears fall like rain, they fall from the eyes
Of a man lost inside
Tears fall like rain, they fall to ground
Confusing the fool , lost to temptation….

Feel so different but look so same
My actions have brought me nothing but shame
The man that once saw so clear, that man wouldn’t even let me near

I heard someone say “everything is broken”
Rang so loud nothing more true ever spoken
I look through the same eyes that saw the lie
At shallowness, bitterness, a weak mans disguise

The rise, the fall, the guilt, the shame….
Track Name: Run For Cover
We feel love, feel the warmth of kisses
We sailed a hundred ships down the river of wishes
Every turn brought a lie, every lie burrowed deeper
No questions allowed from the souls they steal

Run for cover
My restless brother
Time the demon
Faith the great deceiver
You run for cover
Tomorrow is another
Journey to another end

We see evil in the faces of angels
Then throw every ounce of trust at the hearts of strangers
In the distance they stand, in shadows we cower
In between wait the lonely hours

Run for cover…

But my eyes they will not see
My prayers are sent
But are they really ever received
The faith we hold
Is the very same faith we curse
The very same faith we hold again tomorrow

We lie, we wait, fueled by hunger
Simple breaths of God in his great adventure
We rest in reason, we move in passion
But cannot find what we're after

Run for cover...
Track Name: Wind of Change
I feel the wind of change
Has come around
As it blew right through me
It made a crazy sound

The words of my father
Ring so loudly now
Respect the moment son
It won't always be around

Won't always wake to see
The same sun shine
Never felt the same love twice
In all the hands that have held mine

Looking at the sky
Remembering what I’ve seen
Feeling how it felt
And knowing what I’d been
Searching for a time
That wasn’t ruled by sin
Trying hard to see again

Sometimes it will be luck
Knocking on your door
Then luck removes it's mask
Reveals an ugly scar
Deceit the gypsy
Truth the home
There must be a thousand pounds
Of pressure on my soul

Looking at the sky…

Sometimes I try to run
So far away
Sometimes I scream
Sometimes I even pray

That it'll matter somehow
This pain I see
In the eyes of everyone
Searching just like me

Looking at the sky…
Track Name: Never
Looking up, looking down
At my steps I wonder where
Where do they lead?
To another place to another place where I cannot be

Am I never going to shake sorrow’s cloud?
Each day I wake, it wakes with me

Eyes that judge, eyes of fear
I’m just a mother’s son,
How would you think she’d feel if she saw me here?
Look inside yourself
Just how far do you really think you are
From standing here?

There is no love in the shadows of black and grey
Only fear of what tomorrow may bring
Still I walk, I know no other way
Still I hope, …hope is all that is left

Funny, now I remember then
When I was a little boy standing in the gym
Beside others just like me
Sometimes I wonder where they are
Knowing well, they’re not like me

Then I take a pill I took a thousand times
Then I break the razor in my bag
But I sleep again before the task is done
In the morning wonder if I’m weak or strong…

Don’t need your tears, don’t need your shame
Just close your door see if I go away
You can forget so easily
What you don’t allow yourself to see
Just keep those tears and keep your shame
Just close your door I’ll go away

Every now and then
I try to find the moment when
I became, a forgotten man

I curse the sun for simply daring to rise again
I curse myself, and the pain within
I curse a world that seems to have no time to care
I curse everything truth I curse every lie
Track Name: Violet's Wish
She plays the song that takes her away
The words make her feel so brave
Make her feel so not alone

She tries to forget and forgive every lie
To believe that love will find her
Where she hides

A single wish brings a tragic glance
A life so fragile, really owned by chance
Of a perfect world She often dreams
Where right is right and everything is what it seems

So strong, in fear no mercy shown
Helpless to right or wrong
She simply waits to be found

She’s given body, she’s given soul
She’s selfless, willing and able
And she’ll do what she’s told

A single wish brings a tragic glance
A life so fragile, really owned by chance
Of a perfect world she often dreams
Where right is right and everything is what it seems
Love comes around its just lost and found
Takes us high slams us to the ground
She waits to be taken, she wants to feel
Something different something real

As the hours move slowly by, the days turn in to years
Even God stood idly by, as sadness turned to tears
And I wonder when my time is done
And all the battles have been lost or won
Will my heart still hold all that I
Tried to give but was always denied


Is she poison?, or treasure deep?
And are you what her dreams or made of
Or will you haunt her when she sleeps?

She needs to be held, she needs hold
She just needs something to believe
But can we ever really know?

A single wish brings a tragic glance…
Track Name: Once Stood Love
Take me now, show me why
“Love breeds life”, she says with a smile
The time is near, show me where
I stand alone, everywhere

Where once stood love now grows a lie
Weathered and weary, frightened and tried
Hardened by day, hidden by night
It’s so deep within, so far from sight

See this world, mine and yours
The same sun, shines on everyone
Seems so dark, sometimes seems so still
I struggle with, always will

Where once stood love now grows a lie
Weathered and weary, frightened and tried
Hardened by day, hidden by night
It’s so deep within, so far from sight

How many years does it take to see?
How many words does it take to “be”?
How long do we crawl?
How many times must we fall?

From time to time, a wind will come
The clouds above, remind me of
When I could feel, when I could hope
When home , was never far

Where once stood love now grows a lie
Weathered and weary, frightened and tried
Hardened by day, hidden by night
It’s so deep within, so far from sight
Track Name: The Arms of Yesterday
There's something happening, I can't explain I think I disappear more and more each day A life that I once knew, echo's like a distant voice So familiar yet so strange I guess I walk the same, I think I probably talk the same I sleep at night and wake to walk another day But I go in circles like a dog lost in the rain Following the shallow scent of home It’s getting hard these days to see it clear
Everything I ever loved has disappeared
Days gone by
They lead me to a sunset sky
On a weathered trail of love and lies
All the yesterdays hide
I'd like to pack a bag, I'd like to walk away I’d like to run back to the arms of yesterday I'd give up everything, I think I’d take that chance Can someone explain to me how?
The years I feared so, crept up so slow And swallowed everything I have ever loved Left all true and certain, in the distance hurting From these hands that now grow old alone

It’s getting hard these days to see it clear
Everything I ever knew has disappeared
Days gone by…

Years lay beside me, offering comfort
I escape into the memories they hold
I guess it’s not what you’re given
But what you take from life
And now, I wish I taken more

It’s getting hard these days to see it clear
Everything I ever knew has disappeared

Days gone by…
Track Name: Life is Beautiful, Life is Cruel
Jenny hums a song, she can’t find the words
She hears the whisper of the wind
She turns her head
Taken by the moonlight as it shines
Through the curtains, softly spilling shadows
On the soul it finds

Maybe there’s meaning and we just can’t know
But I do know these walls will never be her home
I’ll just close my eyes and go some place far
Maybe I’ll find a reason or at least avoid the scars

The fire in my heart tonight
It rages high, it rages wide
For everything I must forget
Denied, or buried deep within
I struggle for the lesson in
A pain that should be saved
For greater sins
Than loving, trusting, caring
The fire in my heart tonight
It rages high
Rages wide

Hey man, you were in my dream last night
You looked different, but I knew it was you…
You said what you said the night we met
It was good to feel that way again…

Wish I could take you there with me
I guess we left to fast
Can’t change it now, it’s so far in the past
Wish I could see that look again, it’s been so long
But you’re somewhere different now
And that would be wrong

The fire in my heart tonight…

Time forgets a little, but I need a little more
I knew you’d stay with me, even after you’d gone
I’ll admit that life is beautiful
I’ll admit that life is cruel
And that I learned both loving you……

Wherever you are, you’ll never be far
But I am sure I’d never recognize just who you are
But somewhere, maybe deep, below those eyes
You wonder where I am
Standing tonight

The fire in my heart tonight…
