Healer 04:34
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

Signs 04:01
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

Somerset 04:11
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?

Who I Am 03:25
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

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

Satisfaction 02:47
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

Turn Away 03:50
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.

Intercept 03:31
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!

All You Need 03:33
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
10.
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

Desert 03:22
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
