Track Name: Lost at Sea
You wonder freely in an ocean carried by the tides
for the frantic search of land
I can only watch as currents take you out to sea
for now on they will be your guide

I can’t provide you the answers you need
so don’t stop looking for them as long as you live
I can’t provide you the answers you need
so don’t stop looking for them as long as you live

We’re all searching for that purpose in our lives
The things that make us feel complete
Although I wish that you were right here with me by my side
I know your quest does not end here
I can’t provide you the answers you need
so don’t stop looking for them as long as you live

And here I stand, Look at the sea
and hope that you have found your paradise
My thoughts in a bottle, clenched in my fist
And I’ll throw it out into the sea
Track Name: Deceptive Cadence
What has become of this place
It’s hollow and all so empty
A place that was our get-away
If these walls could tell you their story
I’d listen to them all

I’m pounding I’m screaming but there is no sound
These words fall on deaf ears and will never be heard
But I continue to scream at the top of my lungs
And I will not lose hope

These words escape from my breath
Of thoughts and things I have seen
The things we all beg to change
Is this world ready for something
A voice to end these days

I’m pounding I’m screaming but there is no sound
These words fall on deaf ears and will never be heard
But I continue to scream at the top of my lungs
And I will not lose hope

We are- breaking the silence
We are- we are all being heard

We are- changing the world
Track Name: Painting in Words
I strive for compliance but cherish the silence
I’m backed in the corner again
The pen is the stylist shading fine detail
in a portrait created of words

I’m painting a picture, an outline of subtext
each letter a careful placed thought
I scream at this canvas, but there’s no rebuttal
I scream for this silence to break

What will you think of me as thoughts run through these pages
my life’s become an open book
as ink drips from this ballpoint and leaves it’s scares on parchment
The image burned into my mind

And I will take this match with fire I will set you free
my thoughts, my soul released into the air
will you take my burdens, will you feel my wait
or will you fucking simply sit and stair

Can you take this from me, can you take this away from me
I have no direction, but a strong sense of loyalty
My life is in shambles, but I will keep writing
Track Name: Echoes
Betrayed by my father, heart ripped from my chest
I keep up my guard like a bullet-proof vest
I’ve stumbled and fell, and tasted the floor
The bottom of the barrel never felt so damn warm
But these arms won’t break
And these hands won’t shake
The struggle has left me deaf by the sounds
And I’m screaming for more
The phone and the TV are ripped from the wall
The echoes of screaming they bounce through the halls
The children are scared, they fear for their lives
They’re closing their eyes to escape from this night
Can you hear the sound
Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust
What remains of what I loved
The smell of destruction is filling the air
The wrath of the carnage leaves homes in despair
The taste of your words it pumps through my veins
The flashing of lights when they call out your name
Can you hear the sound
Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust
What remains of what I loved
Can you stop the chaos and leave this all behind
Please release your grip on the world
And I will save you and I’ll give my life to
Beyond here there is a better place
