Track Name: Hunt Me Down
Somewhere along the lines I heard you’re look’n for me
Ask’n people questions about where I am
Pursuing me regardless of whether I wanted to meet you
Try’n to track me down though I keep on running round

Hunt me down, hunt me down in and out of every town
I will run, I will run until my heart becomes undone
I’m doing all I can to avoid your heavy hand
Dodging every question with a grin

Is it true, is it true that you’ll never stop pursuit
No matter what I don’t and what I do?
Well here I am you’ve got me now make it quick don’t tell me how
Do me in invade my soul take my heart and take my gold

Cause I give up and I give in cause with my best well I can’t win
Take my time, take my dreams, take it all take everything
Take my mind, bend it round put my knees with on the ground
Put Your hand to my head say the words that make me dead

Hunt me down, hunt me down in and out of every town
I won’t run, I won’t run because my hearts becomes undone
Jesus Christ I am yours King of kings Lord of lords
Jesus Christ I am yours I am yours.
Track Name: Hard Words
hard, words, cut down to the bone
fear, and lies, seem to hide in our souls
to burn, to be cold, it will stay until we’re old
the trials, and the fire, will build the walls of our home

be still and be calm

this won’t last for long

all things they must pass

don’t give in that fast

doubt, and belief, seem to be a part of faith
and strength in myself, will always be my mistake
hard words, cut down to the bone
fear and those lies seem to hide in our souls


be still and be calm

it won’t last for long

all things they must pass

don’t give in that fast
Track Name: The Captain
All is forgotten I’ve left it by the riverside, I’ve thrown in down the canyon and walked away. I won’t remember nothing from the north unto the south, I’ve buried it six feet down into the ground. All is forgiven rest assured you can take my words, my heart is the anchor of your drifting ship. And I too am The Captain keeping you from certain death, for when I breathe its the wind that blows your sails.

And it sounds like...

When your body crumbles it cracks and creeks beneath your feet and your hair turns white as the crashing waves. For I will never fail you when you come to your hearts end and understanding circumstance is gone. Because all I have given it can’t be given back to me, whats done is done is written its history. For I will continue to be with you when your mind fails even when you don’t feel that I am.

And it sounds like...

All is forgiven rest assured you can take my words, my heart is the anchor of your drifting ship.
Track Name: Song Of Lament
How many times?
How many days?
How many hard, hard, hard ways?

What did it take?
To learn my mistake?
How many worn, worn, worn souls at stake?

There’s something eluding my sunshine

It’s just not who I expected to be

I didn’t think what happens in the movies would happen to me

But now that the hour has spoken

The strong arms of truth are choking

The lies that have shaped who I am

Now that loves gone and the demons have come
whispering lies, lies, lies all night long
there’s just no more strength to stand on my own
I can no longer hide, hide, hide what’s in my soul

There’s something eluding my sunshine

It’s just not who I expected to be

I didn’t think what happens in the movies would happen to me

But now that the hour has spoken

The strong arms of truth are choking

The lies that have shaped who I was
Track Name: We Will Rise
When you’re feeling the lie, coming up inside
Like a fire that’s on the rise
When you’re feeling the fears, ringing in your ears
Like a shotgun to your mind

When confusion is loud, and knocking at your door
Come on its time for war
When the battle is on and things become untied
It’s me that’s on your side

We will rise above the clouds

The sun will bring to light our darkest doubts

And we will rise above the clouds

When we don’t know where to go it only goes to show.
We have much to learn
When I don’t know what to say my words get in the way,
And it seems to make things worse

We will rise above the clouds

The sun will bring to light our darkest doubts

And we will rise above the clouds
