Afterfall 03:18
Are you tired of this mind pollution? Are you ready for a new solution? Well stand up and rediscover yourself Remember back to days of yesterday when life meant freedom and you cherished every single day Can you remember what is meaningful? Replacing truth with ritual and bathing yourself in triviality What do you want to be when you grow up? Who do you want to be? Wake up and dust yourself off Don't fret about yesterday All that matters is that you're here no 'Cause tonight we begin the afterfall When life means freedom you can cherish every single day And you remember what is meaningful No more truthless ritual or bathing yourself in triviality.

We are the pursuers the children of the light We follow the contours of intuition and insight We celebrate the truth and rejoice our love For as it is below it surely is above when you walk with love Redefining the way we live Let the sponge replace the sieve Its not too late for we're still young To recognize where we come from and where we are going from here and what we have left to do To spread some peace on earth it starts with me and you The vision's getting clearer as the final hour draws near But we still have time so let your light shine so that others may find the way Stay focused don't be led astray Walk with love everyday love conquers all and we will see that failure's not our destiny Each day we're growing stronger Together we no longer need to live in doubt or fear our finest hour is almost here The vision's getting clearer as the final hour draws near But we still have time so let your light shine so that others may find the way.

The calm before the storm Before any harm is done Time stops with the meeting of our eyes Something falls over me so sudden so sublime I have no success to speak of in reference to love But I can't resist to give it another try And by the way you have such beautiful eyes You crashed right into my life Eased all my pain and strife And I'll fight to the day that I die To be your perfect man Good times can be spent with anyone But please don't run when dark clouds form Just seek refuge in my warm embrace And as the storm rages I'll never lose my faith You crashed right into my life Eased all my pain and strife And I'll fight to the day that I die To be your perfect man Shoulder to shoulder well fight for one another In this not so perfect world.

Only You 04:24
Running away from anything that was real I was slipping away no longer could I feel anything at all I felt my time was drawing nigh I could not see 'til you loosed the blindfold that was blinding me You woke me up you helped me to see that life's worth living and I want you here with me Only you could break the spell that bound me Only you could rescue me from drowning Only you could bring me to my knees Only you could save me from me I'd lived in a fog for far too long Fear and apathy were strangling me You knew something was wrong you had to let me go to set me free Now I'm awake and I do believe that you're an angel sent from God to me I want you to know that I love you so and that my feelings for you continue to grow Only you could break the spell that bound me Only you could rescue me from drowning Only you could bring me to my knees Only you could save me from me My love for you is an ocean that we've only waded into My drug was holding me back from diving in with you Now that I have my mind back my life and energy too I'm left wanting only to give it all to you Only you could break the spell that bound me Only you could rescue me from drowning Only you could bring me to my knees Only you could save me from me.

Weakling 03:59
I see it time and time again I'm guilty just the same We put on a mask to disguise our face As to not reveal the pain that is felt within our hearts at the core of my very own soul When I know what I do is wrong yet proceed to embellish my own selfish desires Because I'm a weakling He can see through me when I can't see through my self A preacher by day a hypocrite by night It's no wonder so many lives are lost Why would they want what we have when we seem to remain unchanged Lord help me I'm a weakling I've fallen and I can't get up Now that I have hit rock bottom I ask to drink from your cup I ask for your forgiveness and promise never to go back To the way that I was When I fall you lift me up When I'm dry you fill my cup You lead me to the light that's true Lord I'm so unworthy of you When I fall you lift me up When I'm dry you fill my cup You lead me to the light that's true Lord I'm so in awe of you When I fall you lift me up When I'm dry you fill my cup You lead me to the light that's true Lord I'm so in love with you Consider it pure joy whenever you face trials of many kinds because the testing of your faith develops perseverance.

Thought you were the only one for me My entire reason to laugh to live to sing But that love has faded out And here I sit in a shroud of my own doubt Your love burned me like an open flame Something I was unable to tame Love is so illogical and insane And is it just me or does it always end the same way I've been kicked in the face And I've tasted the boot of defeat But I'm still and I'm still free Because I'll never let you destroy me I just cant get you out of my mind And how in the end you were so unkind My hearts been shattered and rearranged But looking back there's not a thing I would have changed I've been kicked in the face And I've tasted the boot of defeat But I'm still and I'm still free Because I'll never let you destroy me.

Why you said goodbye I may never know Why you said goodbye I still don't have a clue You said your feelings changed You said you weren't the same What am I supposed to do when you don't love me Where did we go wrong What'd I do to you Will there be another chance or is this it for us We didn't try too hard to keep things going But after 6 long months for us to just fade away What am I supposed to do when you don't love me I want to hold you once again and I'm trying hard to Don't know if I'm doing any good Am I a fool for trying so hard or just someone who cares But how can I forget when I'm still in love with you Your picture it still hangs on my wall And the memories still flow From when you loved me so What am I supposed to do when you don't love me I want to hold you once again and I'm trying hard to Don't know if I'm doing any good Am I a fool for trying so hard or just someone who cares Will the day ever come when we're together again I'm willing to wait I'll be waiting for you Its the least I can do for someone like you What am I supposed to do when you don't love me.

Moons Ago 04:26
I saw your pendant around some other guy's neck And your presence every where I go What was the force that drew me to you I'm afraid that I may never know In the beginning as I prepared for your departure I promised myself I'd be thankful for the time we shared But as the days grew short and the nights much longer I forgot as I clung desperately to you Let me let it go as she did moons ago Let me let her go Let me let it go as she did moons ago Let me let her go Its now been about as long as our rendezvous Since its been through Months even since I have heard your voice Your memory a solemn reminder That every fork in the road demands a choice. Let me let it go as she did moons ago Let me let her go Let me let it go as she did moons ago Let me let her go

Give us a vision Something we can believe in We're running around with no light Help us to begin again Pick ourselves from the depths within And fight for what we know is right Lets start right now What can I do today Lets start right now Who will I be today When you wake up it feels good to be alive When you take up your burdens and accept responsibility only then can you be free Don't be afraid of the bills that must be paid Don't you realize that your life is the prize You deserve to enjoy it but you must serve to enjoy it You can figure it out but will you take the time Lets start right now What can I do today Lets start right now Who will I be today When you wake up it feels good to be alive When you take up your burdens and accept responsibility only then can you be free When you're weak I will be strong For I have been here all along Believe in me as I believe in you We can do it if we try Let love be our battle cry I'll be with you until the end of time Lets start right now What can I do today Lets start right now Who will I be today When you wake up it feels good to be alive When you take up your burdens and accept responsibility only then can you be free.

Time is going by so fast I just want to make something last with you Time is going by so fast I just want to make something last with you Because ever since I came here I haven't met anyone who understands me like the way you do And ever since I moved here I haven't had someone as beautiful as you with me Well soon we will all be gone and you will be so far away from me Well don't you worry because I will be thinking of you every day And soon there will be another day when you wake up in my arms Time is going by so fast I just want to make something last with you Time is going by so fast I just want to make something last with you and me.

Its kind of funny when we first met It was you and me against the world yeah Your brother hated me and threatened to take my life While my mother on the other hand thought you were evil Nearly half a decade since our fateful rendezvous For the first time in a long time last night I saw you I could not believe my eyes Not that your beauty comes as a surprise I love the woman you've blossomed into Stay away from my sister keep away from my son For what its worth you were worth it Stay away from my sister keep away from my son For what its worth you were worth it even though it was short lived I loved every moment with you.

Bed of Coals 03:18
I've been walking on this bed of coals for so long that my senses have dulled and I no longer feel a thing The pain this ritual has cause me leaves me trying in vain to be the same Suddenly lifted from this mess of sin resting safely on his wings I rise above the situations that leave me wanting something more There's nothing more that what you offer me Yet I bind myself dwelling in my own self pity For every battle I fight and win seems I lose so many more Lord what can you use me for I try to tell others of you those who don't know you as I do A poor reflection of who you want me to be What good am I no better than they in their eyes blinded by sin I cannot tell them not to if I am joining in There's nothing more that what you offer me Yet I bind myself dwelling in my own self pity For every battle I fight and win seems I lose so many more Lord what can you use me for Lord please restore me renew me again Release me from this mess of sin that I am tangled in The same prayer I said last night I recite again How can I change throughout the day and at night want back in I'm just a kid but that's my poor excuse my reason for subjecting my soul to this abuse I wish to stop but know I'll be back again I can't wait to see your face 'cause then there'll be no sin.
