Track Name: Letters
Maybe this was for the best
But there’s an aching in my chest
Of said thoughts that I must tell you
& I won’t let them go to waste

With that I will say…

This is the last letter I write to you
Then I’ll burn them all away
Let the ink soak through this paper
With words that start a flame
This is the last letter I’m writing
To the one that got away

I thought our love was purely truth
But love found it’s way out of you
You left me broken in disgrace
All because you love the chase

This is the last letter I write to you
Then I’ll burn them all away
Let the ink soak through this paper
With words that start a flame
This is the last letter I’m writing
To the one that got away

I don’t care if you’re happy
I don’t care if it’s fate
You never cared from the beginning
& now your luck is soon to change
Track Name: Tragedy
I was living in a constant daydream
The hopeless nightmare was you sat there waiting
For the perfect time to end a perfect friendship
So you won’t feel the guilt when you are with him.
Now I’ll wreck my brain to solve this question
I’ll toss, I’ll turn, I’ll scream & no one listens.
If you can’t force someone to make them love you
How could you force the lie that he completes you?
This isn’t based on some “prolific story”
It’s just my life
The truth in all it’s glory

Come one, come all behold the tragedy
How I lost my love in a state of reverie
& no amount of drugs or doctors they can feed
Will ever rid me of this painful memory

Oh, amnesia you’re my only answer
I wanna lose my mind from this disaster
Cause this nostalgia has become my anchor
So set her loose into a sea of anger
Cause to be honest I’m as cheap as they come
& this song is nothing but free medication

They say you can’t force someone to fall in love
They say you can’t force someone
Force someone
Track Name: Sanctity
Hope is something you “deserve”
It lies with all the prayers for the
Ambitions & the love you have for church
It’s become your life
Now you can’t see the people starving
In a world that has been dying
The politics
So much politics
In a holy art thou temple that’s been
Nothing but judgmental

Holy Ghost please
Save me from the followers of
A God that they have made out to be
A ritual
& not a friend

The tongue may be a double sword
But your heart’s filled with poison &
It separates this family from the horde
So go on
& as you tear the walls that Jesus built
The sanctity of marriage will be killed
My love if you’re one of his
& your heart’s filled with impure value
You will find your whole life has been in vain
My God I pray
That we will find true love for Jesus
Not just a place to go for our eternal days

You are the future
You are the voice
So don’t make your mouth a weapon
Go out to the world & make some noise

We are the future
We are the voice
& we won’t make our mouths the weapon
We will go out to the world & make some noise
Track Name: Questions
Tonight I am a victim of my imagination
The distance from you has no
It has no medication
Oh, how my heart is frigid
& God I feel so timid
To ask You this one question
Point me in her direction?
I need just one connection
Please answer this one question
Point me in her direction
So there’s no misconception

You are my stars
You are my dreams
You mean everything
You mean everything to me
Can you hold my heart right in your hands
Then my love will stop once
The sky comes to an end

Your eyes they paint the sky blue
Just like my heart is for you
The tears hydrate my dry face
It longs for your warm embrace
Oh, how my heart longs for you
This has been overdue
Love, what I’d give to see you
A chance to lie here with you

You are my stars
You are my dreams
You mean everything
You mean everything to me
Can you hold my heart right in your hands
Then my love will stop once
The sky comes to an end

Did it hurt you
When you fell down
From where the angels
Sing to Him
Track Name: Dream
Your beauty is so difficult for me to fathom
Your smile is so bright
It can light the darkest night
I never believed in a love of this great kind
But you make me want to shout it from a rooftop
You’ve changed
You’ve changed my mind

If this is a dream then wake me
Wake me from my endless sleep
Cause I don’t want to waste a minute
Thinking that you won’t be here with me

We all live in a world that’s going down in flames
But I find it so hard to worry
When I hold your hand
I’m awestruck by a God who’d make
Someone like this
It makes me feel so unworthy to graze your lips
To graze your lips

If this is a dream then wake me
Wake me from my endless sleep
Cause I don’t want to waste a minute
Thinking that you won’t be here with me
I want to wake up in the morning
& savor every single moment
Just to look at you & think
Exactly what it does mean to believe…

Who needs a broken heart when I have you?
Track Name: Difference
I’m not homesick I’m just sick of being home
Sick of thinking that I have just one more chance
At doing this alone
We can’t change the ‘til we find & change ourselves
So start a revolution & overlook your self

Raise your voice high
Find the dark & shine your light
With all your soul
Read between loves lines
Find the truth & just confide
With all your soul

I’m not broken I’m just sick of broken hearts
Sick of living in a world where love is built
Just to fall apart
Well, even if my voice shakes
My words will not be tamed
Cause love’s the only answer
To hearts that must be changed

Raise your voice high
Find the dark & shine your light
With all your soul
Read between loves lines
Find the truth & just confide
With all your soul

I’m not homesick I’m just sick of being home
