Track Name: Battlecry
Darkness under moon lit skies.
Firefight has me running for my life.
A mother's cry, will her child survive.
Bullets fly from the Devil's eyes.

Chorus
I can't find my way,
Smoke gets in my eyes.

Daybreak against the western skies.
Thousands marching in for the fight.
A dragon flys across the fiery skies.
Bullets fly, another soldier must die.

Chorus
But I can't find my way,
the blood is in my eyes.

I am on my way,
I just can't find my way
I am on my way,
I lived another day.
Track Name: Faded Pictures
Faded pictures and our songs of yesterday
So much misery from all the things I didn't say
Hey I'm going now I must be on my way
So let the rain fall down on my knees I pray

You are everywhere I am
Who do you want me to be, is tomorrow too late
You are everything I bleed
All the promises I break

Street corner preacher not worth a cent for words they say. I'm suffocating from the tongues that echo wicked lies. Seven little children with tears their eyes.
I just want to breathe a point of clarity for you I'll pray.

You are everywhere I am
Who do you want me to be, is tomorrow too late
You are everything I bleed
All the promises I break

You are everywhere I am
Who do you want me to be, is tomorrow too late
You are everything I bleed
All the promises I break

Faded pictures

{Spoken}
It's the weight of the world that that lies on my shoulders. The dark shadows that follow me through the night.

Faded pictures

{Spoken}
In a world that's full of sin and hatred. Will I ever find my way now?

Faded pictures.
Track Name: Old Jack
See old Jack his face is dirty shoes are worn.
Standing there with his hand out to you.
See her there she's hungry lost her children cry
Are you sure there's nothing you can do?

It's no coin toss while you search for change.
You're feeling life slowly turn the page.
Is this it, is this all I've longed for?
Is this all is there nothing more?

You see them there moments away from where you stand.
You realize you're just a step away.
You see the man, his hand and is out his heart awaits.
Are you sure you're going to turn and walk away?

It’s no coin toss while you search for faith
You're feeling life slowly turn the page.
Is this it is this all I've longed for?
Is this all is there nothing more?

Pictures of my life go by right before my face.
The child that I once was now stands there in my place.
Take the time to teach your children about amazing grace.
Yeah!

Pictures of my life go by right before my face.
The child that I once was now stands there in my place.
Take the time to teach your children about this humans race.
Yeah!
Track Name: Far Away
Erase the tears that fall from my eyes
Counting bridges that separate our lives
But knowing my intentions
It’s so hard to say goodbye
Making this a memory
One I can’t deny

You’re so far, far away
In my mind, my heart and soul I bury you away
You’re so far, far away
You were my whole life But now you've gone away

You've gone away

With changing moments time passes by
I wish upon a star that falls tonight
I close my eyes so I can see your face
Holding you close to me is Where I want to be

You’re so far, far away
In my mind, my heart and soul I bury you away yeah
You’re so far, far away
You were my whole life
But now you've gone away

I was lost living day by day
Deeper and deeper inside
My buried pain will stay

I was lost living day by day
Deeper and deeper inside
My buried pain will stay

You’re so far, far away
In my mind, my heart and soul I bury you away yeah
You’re so far, far away
You were my whole life
But now you've gone away

You’re like a butterfly I set you free to fly
You've gone so far away
You've gone so far away

Away

You’re like a butterfly I set you free to fly
A diamond in the sky
You have gone away Away

You’re like a butterfly I set you free to fly
A diamond in the sky
You have gone away

And wipe the tears from my face
Track Name: The Road
I can feel your eyes upon me, as I’m reaching for the door.
I turn for your embrace, I just got to have one more.
The road outside is calling, one thousand exits long.
Enough time for me to write, all the words to this old song.

Chorus
The road is long.
When you’re on your own.
I’ve got to be strong.
Cause the road goes on and on and on and on.

The road it goes on forever.
never ever seems to end.
I get a little closer, seems your just around the bend.
I can see you waiting for me like a thousand times before.
Home for your embrace, then right back out the door.
Track Name: Feel It
Feel it coming up inside me.
Feel it like a tidal wave.
Feel it coming up beside me.
But I don't want to be your slave.

See him standing there before me.
See him holding out his hand.
Calling out my name he knows me.
Paid my price released my debt.

Chorus
Feel it in my heart again.
All your reasons they don't apply to me.
Feel it in my heart again.
There's no time tomorrow's
Here again.

Here you coming up behind me.
Acting like you're my friend.
Promising fame and glory.
But I know how your story ends.

See him standing there before me.
He's my one and only friend.
Standing there in all his glory.
And promising they'll be no end.

Chorus
Feel it in my heart again.
All your reasons they don't apply to me.
Feel it in my heart again.
There's no time tomorrow's
Here again.

See him standing there before me.
He's my one and only friend.
Standing there in all his glory.
And telling me they'll be no end.
Track Name: Lost
A young girl 20 years old
On a corner selling her soul
Saw your daughter but that was yesterday
Dark and cold and she looked away

To another world that's where she'll go
Guided through now carry her soul
A sinner conceived at birth that's what she'll do
But what about you?

Corruption of all has consumed their minds
The streets that own them they draw their line
As fucked up as it may be
Confined and deceived oh we believe

To another world that's where they'll go
Guided through now carry their souls
A sinner conceived at birth that's what they'll do
What about you?
What about you?
What about you?
You!

Walking through the streets I hear The cry of a little girl
Wake up Daddy please don't die
When death is before us that's where will lie
Fate has taken him beyond the skies
To another world oh that's where he'll go
Guided through lord carry his soul

But I ask now
What about you?

What about bout what about
What about bout what about
What about you?

What about bout what about
What about bout what about
What about you?

What about bout what about
What about bout what about
What about you?
You.
Track Name: Everything to Me
Rolling highway 101 thought I saw you there my son.
Beneath the whispering pine.
Saw your sister too she reminded you
of the love I've left behind.
Your faces trailing by I can think of you and sigh.
I pray for you, I pray for me.

Rolling down that road
Feel my heart explode

Riding hwy 23 got you right here beside me were
rolling down that road.
I still can't believe that soon you'll have to leave.
Take my love with you when you go.
I see that airport sign telling me its time
I hate to let you go.

Riding the highway home
feel my heart explode.

I feel my heart break every step that you away from me.
I watch the plane go everything that I know disappears.
I want you to know I'm missing you so
I want you to see

You’re everything to me.

Riding the highway home
feel my heart implode.

I want you with me I need you to be with me right here.
See Your face everywhere man I could swear you're still right here.
I wish you could see i wish you could be with me right here.
And we’d cruise on down that road.
Track Name: Fields of the Wanderer
You’re my only reason you're light before my eyes
I’m reaching for the heavens but only touch the skies
I witness every moment of you running with air
A treasure kind and tender your love is not to fear

In the fields of a wanderer they say our dreams appear
I feel so alone and somber
Oh it brings me home again
In the fields of a wanderer
With you I'm not alone

The answer is forgiveness
It's where our inner soul begins
You see my reflections
And through the scars of where I've been broken roads I've fallen from have made me who I am

In the fields of a wanderer they say our dreams appear
I feel so alone and somber
Oh it brings me home again
In the fields of a wanderer
With you I'm not alone

What appears before me is the tender beauty of your soul
Silently secluded the air I breath is getting cold
The whisper of the winds begin as the pages all unfold
Sharing every minute of life with you, and growing old.
Ohhh Ohhhh Ohhhh

The Fields of the Wanderer
In the fields of a wanderer they say our dreams appear
I feel so alone and somber
Oh it brings me home again
In the fields of a wanderer With you I'm not alone

I'm not alone (repeat)
