Track Name: Knowing Yourself, Art
I want something to be proud of
A painting, these hands to heavy
A sculpture, this hammer's swing too weak
A chord, these fingers too clumsy
A chorus, this voice too humble
Words are all that I have
Words are all that remain
I painted and no one saw but me
I sculpted and there was no clear shape
I played it fell on deaf ears
I sang and all I received was whispers
But words I can't keep to myself
Words are made for sharing
Yet what if I write and it is shunned
Pour out my heart and my innermost is ridiculed
Speak my mind and everyone disagree
Scream and no one even listen
At least then I could hear myself

Words are all that we have
Words are all that remain
If we could just listen
Nothing would be the same
Let's examine together
The profound and the strange
With open ears, open minds
We'll be forever changed.
Track Name: Tear You Apart
Quick now you sluggard, prick up your posture
This is no time for weakness
Hide it ignore it for they’ll all deplore it
And it’s what they think that counts
No one but you has troubles, your thoughts are all muddled
Pull yourself together now
You’re alone for the first time, eighteen years you have been fine
But what about now?

What if withdrawn
All support long gone
Reveals a gaping hole
In your person

They say
This is what will define you
This is the way we will bind you up
And tear you apart
This is the touch that will make you
This is the glance that will break your heart
It will tear you apart

Perhaps you’ll find peace eventually
But for now you’ll have to cope
Unless you can find a love that’s complete
Behold such is our hope
Open your eyes wide you’re walking through life blind
You can’t do this on your own
And though you might try I think that you’ll find
All fools end up alone


What if withdrawn
All support long gone
Reveals a gaping hole
In your person

They say
This is what will define you
This is the way we will bind you up
And tear you apart
This is the touch that will make you
This is the glance that will break your heart
It will tear you apart
This is the touch that will make you
This is the glance that will break your heart
It will tear you apart
Track Name: Collide
Oh thank God you're alive
I thought you were dead
When you went off the road
I nearly lost my head
Now I know what it's like
To nearly end a life
But I came out alive
And that surely is divine

As the guard rail draws near
Time ceases to exist
And I wonder how
I slid into this
My hands they just hold tight
My eyes open wide
With death looming just in sight
My car, it does collide

These dreams that I have
They give me fear
But it's not for myself
It's for the ones that I hold dear
It's tragic how sometimes
We have to see death draw near
For us to even care
About those that we hold dear.
Track Name: Closer
You talk to me like you don't even know me
But you should know me
I've been there as you've grown
Are you standing there just waiting
On your call to move?
Cause I've called you to move

If you'd just listen you could hear my voice
You'd come running back, running to my arms
Reach out your hand I've been hear all along
You're doing nothing to pull me closer to your heart
To your heart

You're looking for me down the wrong road
You should know I'm not just a means to satisfy
Don't try to win my heart with the good things that you do
You're not built by the things you do

If you'd just listen you could hear my voice
You'd come running back, running to my arms
Reach out your hand I've been hear all along
You're doing nothing to pull me closer to your heart
To your heart
Track Name: Silver
I've purified my heart
And washed my hands in innocence
I sit hear and watch as the
Wicked come out ahead
Come out ahead

I am the refiner of your heart
You sit through the fire to be purified
Trust me I keep my eyes fixed on you
And wait till the point you understand my truth

You've lit a fire beneath
But my blind eyes can;t see
The big picture of the dance
You have always planned
You've always planned
I watch as the wicked come out ahead.


I am the refiner of your heart
You sit through the fire to be purified
Trust me I keep my eyes fixed on you
And wait till the point you understand my truth

You put me through the fire

I am the refiner of your heart
You sit through the fire to be purified
Trust me I keep my eyes fixed on you
And wait till the point you understand my truth
Track Name: Love Recklessly
And now I say to you, love
One another recklessly
Without regards for consequences
Positive or negative
For love is not
Something that should be prostituted
Or used for gain
It is a gift
Given freely
To all mankind, for all mankind
We are to love
In the realization
That everyone is more than what they seem
That where we perceive a body
There is a soul
And that soul is eternal
And that the actions
That we take against one another
Oh they're not
The mere workings of one animal against another
But rather an immortal perverting his eternal purpose
To love
Recklessly
Love
One Another
Recklessly
Oh brothers! Heed my words!
And love
One another
Recklessly
