Track Name: Arise
fall from your grace
failed you again
to high to reach
you pushed me down
on the ground in a pool of blood
and broken dreams

i will arise
cant hold me down

words cut me deep
tied to the chair
your world so small
you sat me there
and told me id never be
the man you hoped i would be
Track Name: blood brothers
do you recall, many years ago
a promise that we made
through thick and thin, where did we begin
to lose the way
deep was the cut, fingers were pressed
brothers in blood
i moved away, you chose to stay
i never understood

i guess time it slips away
further each and every day
i wonder where are you now?
i hope you made it somehow
blood brothers till the end

upon my return, thats when i learned
you moved away
three years ago, i didn't know
theres no words to say
i will hold on, it wont be long
till we meet again
back to the start, even though we part
we'll always be friends
Track Name: ghost
another day, another time
maybe i would lay it all on the line
sacrifice everything for you
but its just not what im guna do.

you say
hold me so close
im asking you, please don't go
hold me so close
no i don't want be your ghost

theres an empty side to this bed
a film of you, running through my head
love is falling into decline
no its just not right, not this time
Track Name: washed away
let me hold you till the morning light
everything is guna be alright
sometimes you gotta stand and fight
but everything is guna be alright

your sand castle crumbles down
washed away with the tide now
left you feeling unfulfilled
grab your spade and lets rebuild

we'll go walk and gather shells
our feet sink as the water swells
the salt will tangle up your hair
come to the shore i'll meet you there

it wont be long hold on strong

hear the waves and watch them roll
hand in hand we can stroll
let me look upon your face
with you theres is no time or space

melt away with the evening sun
and hide behind the horizon
into my arms you can fall
my kingdom you can have it all
Track Name: oh my love
oh my love, i will wait, i will wait for you
oh my love, i will wait, i will wait for you
the days they are long, im weary and worn
but i wait, i wait for you

oh my love, i will crawl, i will crawl to you
oh my love, i will crawl, i will crawl to you
my hands and knees, are bleeding are torn
but i crawl, i crawl for you

oh my love, i will run, i will run to you
oh my love, i will run, i will run to you
and my feet , swollen and numb,
i will run, i'll run to you
Track Name: take the hand
take the hand, that holds you down
take the hand, that steals the crown
bite the hand, that does not feed
hold the heart, watch it bleed
Track Name: hmbs
the heart and mind are often torn
can my soul be reborn
what will come, of this confusion
or is peace just illusion

heart isolation
mind desolation
body relocation
soul rejuvenation

its time for me to go again
to the mountains and be with friends
get release from all this woe
to breathe the air and ride the snow
Track Name: who am i now?
i dont know who is who anymore
reflection showing someone else
don't recognize myself no more
my soul i put it upon the shelf

who am i now?

what you see is not what you get
i like to play a game
you don't know what i'm really like
you only my name
Track Name: the last time
pour a drink, it helps one to think
the mind is in the way again
drawn to the light, alone again tonight
breathe deep that heavy sigh

softly, slowly, leave the bar for the last time

faded picture is all that remains
in hand a dead memory
with each tear the spirit drops away
half the soul one used to be

slowly, softly, tears fall for the last time

walk alone, empty home
fall back into the chair
change of hue, faded blue
no longer able to bare

softly, slowly, exhale for the last time

the dirt and picture are one
last time to bathe in the sun
arms raised, scream out the name
difference, it didn't make a change
Track Name: lullaby
hush now baby don't you cry
daddies guna sing you a lullaby
close your eyes and say goodnight
you'll be in my dreams tonight

a moment never passes by
when you're not on my mind
your smile ignites a fire inside

oh how i miss you so
i want you to know
never will i let you go
