Lyrics


Cover Your Tracks

Heart, cover your tracks
The blood that you spill will wash what you lack
Soul, sew up your wounds
Test out your engine. Give it some room
Mind, pick up your pace
Capture the thoughts you always chase
Soul, open your wings
Lift this cage higher than any dream
Cover your tracks
Sew up your wounds
Pick up your pace
Open your wings
Heart, flesh out your webs
The past that was tangled will unwrap & shed
Soul, sing out your songs
Clear out your throat. Belt it out strong



Ways

Ways. Ways. I awoke. I awoke to your ways
Your ways are not my ways. I awoke. I awoke to your ways



You Want It, You Got It

Looking for a still small voice inside
It echoes past whispering where to find
A light that shines stronger than darkness hides
It’s a sea of bright. Oh I’m blind, I see the light
You want it, you got it. Oh everything
Your love, yeah it always, lights a fire in me
Holding on to the words that ring my soul
Screaming out. Shaking my bones, shaking, I’m on the floor
You want it, you got it. Oh everything
Your love, yeah it always, lights a fire in me
I am blind in a sea of bright light



Good Men

It’s gonna feel like fire
It’s gonna hurt like hell
It’s gonna to feel like water pouring down an old dry well
It’s gonna to feel like crawling up a rocky hill
It’s gonna feel like falling off a cliff
Man heart take a spill
All the feat’s, holding onto hopes that meet
All of the good men, good men
It’s gonna feel like sinking
It’s gonna pull down deep
It’s gonna feel like soaring high above the lofty peaks
It’s gonna feel like pressure bearing down on me
It’s gonna feel like freedom
Come on heart set it free, set it free
Don’t bend. Don’t break.



Till the End of Time

Give it up death. Go on and resign
Your stinger is broke and your venom is dry
Move it out, you sins that malign
You’re drowned by my perfect fire, my perfect light
Won’t you be mine
I’ll love you till the end of time
Won’t you be mine
I’ll love you till the end of time
I was the first born of many that none should die
I was born under a star that proclaimed my rights
My father was the author of life. My mother a holy virgin purified
I spent forty days and forty nights
With no food or drink, just you in my mind
I reached out my hand and gave you sight
I turned your dirty water into wine
So untie those knots that bind
For no law or man can grant you life
Cast out your nets to the other side
Drink deep from my well that satisfies



The Heist

How much longer till this safe is cracked
My feet are cold and my hands are shaking bad
How much longer till the cops arrive
To point their guns to catch us in a crime
And we’ve tried our best to conceal the threat
That in time the law will catch us where we sleep
And we’ve tried our best to conceal the threats
That in time the law will see us to our knees
How much longer till this engine starts
My heart is racing like a cannon ball
How much longer till we get away
And drive our crime through a different state
How much longer till this safe is cracked
My feet are cold and my hands are shaking bad
How much longer till our luck is dry
Till you point your gun and shoot me in the side
And I’ve tried my best to forget your threats
That in time your bullet would find it’s way in me
And I’ll try my best to hold my breath
In time the law will find me where I bleed



Heartache is a Cold Place

Heartache is a cold place
When winter was my birthplace
Alone, I can only run
Sorrow is a freed space
When tears have a good taste
And dry in the heat of the sun
Glory is my weakness
When all I wants to seek it
To see that bright light shine
Failures are for reasons
My pride is left conceding
In loss, all the glory is mine
Pain, its more than just a fight
It breaks and builds my might
Faith, man it’s more than just my words
It bends my soul to turn
Hope it’s more than just my pleas
It’s a light I choose to see
Love, man it’s more than just a state
It’s a true and selfless place
Lonely is a cold place
When laughter is a mute case
And my breath is all i hear
Emptiness is bottomless
When all i pour is hopelessness
Alone, I can only fear
Trying is a helpless plea
If giving up is all I need
To feel my days are done
Righteousness is meaningless
If suffering can steal its bliss
And joy goes down with the sun
I’m not giving up, I’m not giving up on this life
I’m not giving up, I’m not giving up on this fight



It's Racing

Maybe I can try come on baby I have to fight
Fire with flames burning up, bellowing inside
All is safe. No wound too deep to break
My heart will pace the fight it has to make
All the way our love will be the same
Till darkness fades into light
Maybe I can try come on baby I have to fight
Fire with rain pouring down, washing up the flame
All is safe. No wound too deep to break
My heart remains this fight it has to make
All the way our love will be the same
Till darkness fades into light
Can you feel my heart. It’s racing. It’s chasing
Can you feel my heart. It’s racing. It’s chasing you



Carry All the Weight

I’ll know soon if it’s the cold hard truth
That all I have wagered I could lose
All but you
I’ll know soon if it’s the chance to prove
That all I have gained is worth it’s due
All but you
I will carry all the weight, carry all the weight
Hold you in my arms. I won’t let you fall. I won’t let you faint
I will carry all the weight, carry all the weight
Hold you in my arms. I won’t let you break
I’ll know soon if it’s a win I’ll have proof
That all I have wagered will come true
Holding you



Half As Tall

I met a man who was half as tall
In his mind then against the wall
He was standing on knees
I met a man who was half as wise
In his mind then in his eyes
They were blood shot from all he’d seen
When the words that we hear
Echo through the years
When the thoughts that we’ve wrought
Take root in our hearts
When the echo’s of doubt creep up and out of your mouth
Won’t you bury them six feet down
I met a man who was half as bold
In his heart than what his muscles could show
He was weak in the knees
I met a man who was half as rich
In his heart than what his income could fix
He was poor in spirit and in need
Wash it out, this tide is cleansing
It’s pouring in and the water’s rising
Flowing out, your voice changing
Hear it loud and the sound is deafening
You’re twice as strong. You’re twice as bold
No more believing what you’ve been told



Wash Me Clean

Wash me clean
In the warm sun dry me
Cleanse my heart
From all iniquity
Baptize me
In the holy spirit sea
Renew my mind
That wickedness may flee
Restore my soul
Holy spirit take hold
Bath me in your peace. Let it flow
Grant me hope
In the dark have your light shown
Sing your love
The sweetest song I’ve ever known
Barren fields will sprout trees
Deaf and blind will hear and see
Dead will raise and begin to breathe
Earth groan’s in pain to see
Sons of God declare to be
The full and glorious family



Let It Down

Let it down. Let it sound.
