Track Name: Healer
I saw a blind guy out for a walk the other day
He made his way with the help of a long white cane
When it slipped off the curb, we were both horrified
He, because he’s blind; me, because it looked like my life

I’m always slipping
Can’t see what’s coming my way
Don’t want your assistance
But I could go another way

If you listen, you’ll hear me waiting there
You can change direction on a dime
You’ll hear the angels sing, and say your death-bed prayer
You won’t be left alone, all in the nick of time

You never listen
Can’t hear a word that I say
Don’t want my assistance
But you could go another way

You walk alone
On and on won’t heed my warnings
It eats you up
Every night then in the morning
So far, so good.
Trying to wash away reminders
It’s not, enough.
Close your eyes, put on your blinders
So what, to do?
To keep at bay the mysteries
A heart made new,and free
Of what you refuse to feel and hear and see
Fool, it’s only me

There was a moment when a God-man entered space and time
He wasn’t here that long, he’s mostly known because he died
But that didn’t last 3 days, before he chose to rise
He chose to take it all, to let us all survive

And he said
I heal the deaf and blind
And you just look away
You don’t want my assistance
But I am the only way
Track Name: Signs
I’m walking out, and I think of all the things you’ve done
to me. And I hope you don’t laugh just to make me crazy
Made the wrong choices, you know it’s been too long
I think they’re crazy, but it doesn’t mean they’re wrong

It’s coming again and I can’t read your face
And I wonder what’s going on
And I thank you again ‘cause you’ll be there ‘till the end
But I don’t know what’s going on
Going on…

A few quips and phrases,
they say it's all done to make me see
I can’t help but be just a little cynical now
If I told you, you’d be as clear as the sky
We could go now, below or just be high

It’s coming again and I can’t read your face
And I wonder what’s going on
And I thank you again ‘cause you’ll be there ‘till the end
But I don’t know what’s going on
Going on…

Now it’s time now to fall asleep
I’m right here - you’re next to me
What does it mean? Am I just here to keep you warm?
Maybe more is going on?
Going on…

It’s coming again and I can’t read your face
And I wonder what’s going on
And I thank you again ‘cause you’ll be there ‘till the end
But I don’t know what’s going on
Track Name: Somerset
I remember when I got high Just so I could fit in
We went to the pool that afternoon even though I couldn't swim
I just stood in the shallows watching you and soaking in the sun
buzzed and telling myself it feels damn good to be part of the fun

Weird and lonely I'm forever wondering if I am the only
Weird and depressed one solitary freak flag flying
still despite it all I never felt quite like lying… to you

That summer i watched 4 soccer girls
so fun and carefree nothing like me
I rode in a truck with an older guy who went to sleep in jail every night
It's called work release I call it no way to help with drunken despair
I guess when you're weird and lonely doesn't matter what feels fair

Weird and lonely I'm forever wondering if I am the only
Weird and depressed one, solitary freak flag flying
still despite it all I never felt quite like trying… do you?

When life plays out like an after school special
it's darker than what they show
I wanted to do the right thing, or just say no, or let my anger go
It's been so many years since then,
I've known deeper love and better friends
This shame should've burnt out long ago,
It still wakes me up in the night though

Weird and lonely I'm forever wondering if I am the only
weird and depressed one solitary freak flag flying
still despite it all I never felt quite like dying… do you?
Track Name: Who I Am
Diggin’ through the garbage for a little piece of heaven
I’m not ashamed of what I do any more
I’m not happy - but I’m not depressed
Seems my memories are all just a bit compressed

And I wonder who I am
Over-analyzed the plan
Taken step by step and we all find the truth
And I’ll still wonder who I am

Resolutions - nights I’ve stayed awake
It’s annoying punishment I have to take
Where’s there time go? I’m a grown-up now
Got the world to please (in my head), and I don’t know how

But I wonder who I am
Take the good things while I can
Walking out the door when I’ve been here too long
And I’ll still wonder who I am

Play some records, and I finally see
Expectations of the world to take care of me
Honestly, I don’t care what they say
Turns out Mom and Dad clap for me today

And I wonder who I am
Over-analyzed the plan
Taken step by step and we all find the truth
And I’ll still wonder who I am
Track Name: Follow In Your Wake
Try to figure it out but I don’t know what I’m doing
They say cheering up is good for the soul
And then I’m walking ‘round - someone in my way
You catch my eye - you just made my day

When I feel like I’m alone again
It’s time to go, time to fall, any time is good enough
I don’t know if I could say the same
Follow in your wake, follow in your wake

Don’t know where you go, maybe left or up the side
Then I think about all the possibilities
Trails cold but I’m hoping you’re inside
Crossing paths end up being perpendicular

Now I wonder if I’m ok
Check for bruises along the way
I don’t know if I could say the same
Follow in your wake, follow in your wake

our time has come
our time is gone
a rising sun
the battle’s won

Now I see that the world’s okay
We’ll sing it loud as we stay
I don’t know if I could say the same
Follow in your wake, follow in your wake

Follow you
Follow you again
Follow you in your wake
Track Name: Satisfaction
They say patience is a virtue
but I can't wait to be with you at the end sometimes
I wonder when I die if I can look back at my life will I be satisfied

Look at this mess I've made, just like a pig to wallow in
I get up just to fall back down, surprised to feel the ground again
But I think I knew all along, that this would be my fate
I ignored the love and chose the curse, to get me where I am today

So far in this life I stand accused
of biting more off than a man can chew
But I hope you know I tried to love
and live so people would not see in me but you
It's not easy hoping when all I know is feeling and I feel alone
But you said you'd never let me be alone
when temptation comes around and I dunno how I can turn to you

Look at this mess I've made, just like a pig to wallow in
I get up just to fall back down, surprised to feel the ground again
But I think I knew all along, that this would be my fate
I ignored the ghost and I chose the flesh, to get me where I am today

Well I guess we gotta win the future
because life is a competition
our country just needs to get better
so we can maintain our position
when I look at the scriptures
I don't see any constitutions
It just says love your neighbor and God
Because He is the only solution

I just keep wondering when you’ll come around
I just keep wondering when you’ll come around
I just keep wondering when you’ll come around
when you said you’d be back
I thought that you’d be back by now

Look at this mess I've made, just like a pig to wallow in
I get up just to fall back down, surprised to feel the ground again
You sought me out and you called my name, what a thing to do
You picked me up and you cleaned me off, now I’m running after you
Track Name: Turn Away
BEELZEBUB:
I see you angry man in the hands of an angry God
I only want to help you and you can help me too
Give me the glory that he asks you for
He Offers you forgiveness but I can offer more
Everything, anything ask and you'll receive this entire world has turned its face to me
Give me the glory that he gave his son, He offers second chances, but what have you done wrong?

MAN:
You were there, you watched me do it
you said "take what you can get you said that he'd forgive me
But I would not forget
You said I would feel the burden
I will always feel the weight
If I must face this all alone
Then I will fall

BEELZEBUB:
My boy, you're all alone
There's no one to love you
You're not worth my time
But I'll tell you what to do
FALL

THE HOLY SPIRIT:
I’M HERE. HE SENT ME. TURN AWAY.
Track Name: Intercept
Most of us are just killing time ‘til we die
Even those of us who believe
I’ve got empathy for apathy, I’m barely alive
Under the weight of feeling pointless being me

But that’s what makes me special, yeah its how I relate
To the kid who can’t make it all alone
Yeah, I’m just like you kid, so unique did
You know how great it is to be known?

Don’t run away, I get my meaning from the ether, I’ve got 5 gigabytes a month (it’s never enough!)
Don’t talk that way, this is bringing us together, the whole world is always in touch (that can’t be right!)
Don’t look away, I fit the bible on a matchbook, no time to read it but hey (it’ll never sell!)
Don’t criticize me, there are demons in electrons, who am I going to obey?

Most of us are just doing that which we must
To make the time to get some time alone
I’ve got nothing but frustration for the way I behave
Like a king who never asked for his throne

But that’s what makes me fearful, yeah it’s all I can do
To hold my breath and wait for the end
I’m just like you dad, so sorry my bad
You know just what it’s like to lose your friends

The apostles wrote epistles, I’m packing pistols and gum
I’m going to make a million dollar deal
There’s a part of me that’s horrified at what I’ve become
While the rest of me was made to lie and steal

Most of us will just throw up our hands in despair
When then sword of fire and judgment finally comes
There is a part of me I know that really wants to be there
While every other atom screams to run

OBEY!
Track Name: All You Need
Forget the things you think you know
Then we’ll head out to the show
Never lose the things you once had
Contemplation will drive you mad

It’s time to be afraid of what’s inside you
And I have got to say, “Take me home”
And all that you need is here

Never saw it coming down
Clouds around hadn’t made a sound
Had to call out to hear the world
Stupid songs about a stupid girl

It’s time to be afraid of what’s inside you
And I have got to say, “Take me home”
And all that you need is here

Show me what I should do
Follow plans - follow through
An empty house is all that remains
There’s no comfort in all the stains
It’s time to be afraid of what’s inside you
Track Name: Full Grown Man
If I could kill, kill kill, the daydream
Then it would leave, leave me alone
Then I could get, get down to the business of
Being fully grown
If I could crush, crush, crush my hopes and dreams
Then they’d stop bugging me
Then I’d know that
I am where I’m meant to be

If I could love, love, love my wife right
Then she could love me back
And we could get, get, get right down to
Giving what we lack
If could tell, tell, tell her my hopes and fears
Then she would understand
That it ain’t easy
Trying to be a full grown man

If I could share, share, share the Gospel
With every listening ear
Then maybe my sweet Lord would come
And take me away from here
If I could live, live, live the Gospel
Instead of trying to make a speech
I wouldn’t need to say
What anyone could see

Lord it ain’t easy trying to
Be a full grown man
You have to work and hurt and be tired
while you’re trying to make a plan
To live easy and be set free from the burdens of your life
By the time I’m a full grown man
I’m afraid I’ll die
Track Name: Desert
You wake me up at 7am on a Saturday
morning and tell me it’s time to go
Pack my things and get in the car,
drive 14 hours through the blinding snow

Flying there just to get there on time
I’m hoping to meet you in the sand
My friends will come out tonight,
and I’m hoping to take you by the hand
In the desert we’ll be alright you’ll see,
no nothing can stop us now.
No nothing can start to stop us now

Morning comes I feel used up,
what happened to the feeling I just had?
Tryin’ to explain to myself,
there’s no reason to feel sad

The sun rises every day ya know,
I should probably do the same
Ya know I just get so sick and tired of playin’
all these stupid games

In the desert we’ll be alright you’ll see,
no nothing can stop us now.
No nothing can start to stop us now

Flying there just to get there on time
I’m hoping to meet you in the sand
My friends will come out tonight,
and I’m hoping to take you by the hand
The sun rises every day ya know,
I should probably do the same
You know I just get so damn sick and tired of playin’
all these stupid games

That’s love
