Track Name: My Way to the Sky
MY WAY TO THE SKY
Sing softly to me the words that I need
Is it in your mind to give me anything worth of your time
‘Cause I remember standing still your voice is flattened out

Can I be the only one to disagree on things
Move quickly now pick up your plans to set this world on fire
But I can’t watch, the thought of this is
Killing my eyes, cover your lies
I’d do anything to get me out of here

You’re slowing down my way to the sky
I loved the way you walked in my direction
Don’t slow me down my way to the sky
I loved the way you walked in my direction

My master, I wish these dreams were about you
Cut down your enemies and imperfection

I’m astound at what you say, don't cover words with stupid ways
It’s not over, so won't you love me

Sing softly to me the words that I need
Is it in your mind to give me anything worth your time
‘Cause I recall me standing still, your voice is flattened out
Our hearts are set in stone, I’ll never die alone
A single soul who does what’s right is never crying out
And how could love be any less, just look into the sky

Do you feel alive? Were you born this way?
'Cause we weren't all just made Up, like this for you.

I called out at the top of my lungs, can’t you just come on down
'Cause love moves faster through my bones, I will never die alon
Track Name: Asleep in the Clouds
ASLEEP IN THE CLOUDS
Don’t fall asleep, the congregation wonders why you wont come down
And it overwhelms my soul it overwhelms my soul
Don’t set off with heavy hearts, I've kept my mouth shut for now
You've abandoned me, you've abandoned me

For God sakes its love for the first time
There's love in these blackened skies
Sing over and over my soul again
Bring armloads of blessings

I've gone away, I've gone away my God
Is there anyone else to take my place
The water's rising to my bed someone save me now
Anyone...

Extend your hands reach them out to me
I struggle to find good in this place

I've gone away, I've gone away my God
Is there anyone else to take my place
The waters rising to my bed someone save me now
Anyone

You picked the time to stop and smell your roses
This hurt will stop calm down, just keep your composure

You stripped off all your clothes and don't say this wasn't worth your time
My God can barely watch you, as he peaks through the clouds see's your eyes

I've gone away, I've gone away my God
Is there anyone else to take my place
The waters rising to my bed someone save me now
Anyone...
Track Name: Only Time
ONLY TIME
It’s only, it’s only time
Let’s figure this out tonight, all these troubles in our minds
So delicate these fashions cover you, they cover you
Don’t point the blame its always someone new, it's not for you

I can't decide it's pulling me closer into where you stand
It’s not for me to judge, but this is getting out of hand

You traitors you'll cry out
Carry on you wont be found
Can anyone keep from exploiting yourself into the light?

It’s only, it’s only time
Let’s figure this out tonight, all these troubles in our minds
So delicate these fashions cover you, they cover you
Don’t point the blame its always someone new, its not for you

So slow down there’s this blood stained in my bed
How long do we have to disappear
It’s only time till it goes away
I pray it goes away
It’s not a sign, I will never speak again
Silent music from our hearts don't live in sin
Is it really time
Track Name: Under Blinding Lights
UNDER BLINDING LIGHTS
I'd like to take this time
And give you words that get so lost in the sound,
My lonely words are waiting to be found
This calms my nerves and sends signals
Shooting straight into my heart
It's beating faster when do I begin
To feel the point of separation
Oh how my body feels it now

I think someone took everything
But I know that time will take us
To some place I've never really known

We sit around exploring minds
Under blinding lights
I know the thoughts are coming fast
But the words don't mean a thing

We open our eyes and we all walk down, it's over now, they're all gone now
So don't go back into your mindless state
It's over now, we all cry out
Don't carry words you speak they're really not your own
Just give it back my thoughts you stole
You're not disappointing, disappointing me

I know somewhere deep in me
There's life it breathes and speaks so willingly, with a smile, a smile

We sit around exploring minds
Under blinding lights
I know the thoughts are coming fast
But the words don't mean a thing

So believe in me, these words I speak
If only time can tell then let me leave your eyes

We open our eyes and we all walk down
It's over now, they're all gone now
So don't go back into your mindless state
It's over now, we all cry out
Don't carry words you speak they're really not your own
Just give it back my thoughts you stole
You're not disappointing, disappointing me
Track Name: Its Not the World, Its the People In It
IT'S NOT THE WORLD, IT'S THE PEOPLE IN IT
I'll be your eyes just walk this way
She bleeds and cries out I'll be ok

I'll take you there for what it's worth
But it's coming up too fast, it's coming this way too fast for me
For all of these lies we hide inside our minds tonight, just separate yourself from me now

I'll be your eyes just walk this way
She bleeds and cries out I'll be ok

So hurry with your answers now
I'm nearly at the end of my ropes
Come on down let's say this is something now

Am I something now
You take your time and disappoint
This heart of mine
But you calm me down
Hope is for the words he says hope is for everything I believe it's you

My heart burst it's banks I'll pour it out in a song for you a song for you now

With my head into the skies
Can you come my way
It's getting hard to speak and I really want to know your name
I left my head into the skies can you come my way, come my way

I'll be your eyes just walk this way
She bleeds and cries out I'll be ok
Track Name: Found My Heart
FOUND MY HEART
I should have known
But years have gone
I'll stay and wait for you
I'll stay and wait for you alone
My God, my God, it's in those eyes
I see myself it's true, I've been a mess it's true,
She knows my name, and can hold my heart.
I'd give this up for you, I'll give it up for you.
Please show me ways into your heart
I've been outside my mind, I'm lost outside my mind
I need to know, I need to know.
Just how to love, how to love
Find me a way out, find me a way out

Into your arms, into your arm
Find me a way out, find me a way out
Into your arms.
Track Name: Not Enough Capacity For Compassion
NOT ENOUGH CAPACITY FOR COMPASSION
Won't you feel free and feel me
You'll never be alright

I can't hold on to words that come out screaming from your lungs
I know you're scared to death, I can see you're scared to death
Death...
Will I be the one to come to
When you're down and feeling blue
Just know I feel this too
Please know I feel you too
Come to me, come to me, come to me
I know just what you're needing now
Just hold on to my voice somehow
I'll keep us safe from harm!

We're all in the wrong place
My tired eyes were awake
How can we know if feelings feel the same
And if you can't go on this way
It's time to rearrange
I think I can stand still on my own
I'd like to say this on my own

So quick hide, quickly hide
It's time to go inside now dim the lights, I'm sure somebody's looking for us now
So come to me, come to me, come to me
And I will be someone who knows you
Let feelings show you'll never feel the same

We're all in the wrong place
My tired eyes were awake
How can we know if feelings feel the same
And if you can't go on this way
It's time to rearrange
I think I can stand still on my own I'd like to say this on my own

If l leave without this without love
Yes I've seen, I've seen better days
Were coming out, not standing around you're doing fine, hold your head down
I’ve seen better days I've seen better days

We're all in the wrong place
My tired eyes were awake
How can we know if feelings feel the same
And if you can't go on this way
It's time to rearrange
I think I can stand still on my own I’d like to say this on my own
Track Name: Something Real
SOMETHING REAL
Don't try and go away
Did you know, it's your voice
It saves me,
And if you tried to go away, & let me go
I don’t ever want to know
I don’t ever want to know

I take steps to stay away
‘Cause this world can take you down
It wears me out
For all the lonely, for all the lonely
Take steps and go around, and go around

Keep your head up, keep your head up
We must believe in something real
And try to save our lives
And keep your head up

Look in my eyes, I won't hide
This world I despise, I despise
Lean into me, lean into me
Your warmth is what I need
Is what I need

It's all I need
You saved me,
Did you know, did you know
You saved me, you saved me

I take steps to stay away
‘Cause this world can take you down
It wears me out
For all the lonely, for all the lonely
Take steps and go around, and go around

Keep your head up, keep your head up
We must believe in something real
And try to save our lives
And keep your head up
Track Name: From One to Another
FROM ONE TO ANOTHER
From one to another
The alarming sound
Screams louder with words you always do
Speak softer unless your words are true
Can I get a hand, I'm falling down
I can't control the way, I can't control the way I move

Is this real, am I really to the place
Where I can't stand, no I can't stand

Float away into the water
I'm just learning how to swim how to swim
But I can't control the way I move
Come with me into the water
I'm just learning how to swim how to swim
But I can't control the way I move

Are we lost in the air tonight
Are we waiting for something
‘Cause this world passes and I'll loose my life
I didn't live it for nothing
So hold me, hold me where I stand
‘Cause we're all real

I tried to find a place to hide
Your words are killing everything
Your thoughts are bleeding out your eyes

Do you have any sense of direction
Speak with your mouth open wide
‘Cause I can tell your in the wrong direction
I've been this way too many times

Can I say
This world is coming to an end it's slowing down
But you won't find me anywhere around, around, around

Are we lost in the air tonight?
Are we waiting for something?
‘Cause this world passes and I'll loose my life
I didn't give it for nothing
So hold me, hold me where I stand
‘Cause we're all real

She's as real as I feel the air
But her body and bones will melt away
I'm as real as I feel
But my body and bones will all disappear
She's as real as I feel the air
