Track Name: Winded To England
I was being winded to england with the thoughts in my head and
Never understood what it meant to be dead I guess i got the notion when i fell in love again
In terms of what happened I'm really not sure and I don't plan to knock on the Mr. Reaper's door If you see him let him know he won't be seeing me for some time.

Someone other than me, If I was somebody else,
I would be desperately seeking someone else's help.
Searching for the smallest bit of motivation in hell.
If I was somebody else, someone other than me,
I bet that you could find me and my whole family tree
searching for the gap that caused it to fall underneath.

For reasons i can't explain
there is a wall put up between the loved, the depressed and the brave
On certain days. Boy, I'll say.

I simply can't recall the words i was thinking of;
What I meant to say.
Track Name: The Ones
Whichever way the wind blows I know it will soon come around.
Just like the way my heart stops whenever your feet hit the ground.
Hard enough to hear but they're sad enough to put us down.
I'll be the one in the corner brave enough to not make a sound. Make a sound.

We are the ones, we are, we are the ones.
By chance the tides have changed.
We are the ones.
It seems that our hopeful days are being put into the wrong case.
We are the ones. We are, we are the ones.

I swear on my life that i never meant to do no harm.
I really wasnt sure what you meant by let go of my arm.
This operation raised the steaks and im done.
I hope that we can still be best friends while were on the run. on the run.

Space out dreamer. The life you seek is within the mourner.
Leave me bleeding.
And if the winds blow you far from me,
forget what you once loved.
There'll be more where that came from.
Track Name: Verse By Verse
Just if you were wondering I am doing fine,
besides the huge confusion
of this question trapped inside.
What is the direction
that I am heading in?
But I'll try to keep my head up
while remembering again that
I've been wrong before
beyond what may be right for me.
What's real is driven out of me, but on a dead end street.
Consider possibilities. The game of truth or dare.
How is one supposed to breathe when one just isn't there?
I bet that they don't breathe at all. They couldn't want this filthy air.
I've left all that I need while breaking walls to find you there.
Ive wasted opportunities and judged my minds societies.
Pacing back and forth only drives my disbelief...

…That giving up makes your let down much worse
and crying songs are babbled verse by verse.
So I'll rely on imagination.
Someone should relate with what I'm faced with.
Each of our lives can be described with words but
not a single one is ever heard.
All alone at night while you dream in bed
the song of who you are is finally written.

It's a funny thing how a clear clear drop
is sobering in a brave nonstop
drinking brigade of mindset changes;
from what was bad to joyous occasions.
Stampeding through what lies before us,
only slowed by the weight of our hearts.
We had a mind we had misplaced but I remember
we won it back in little time with open arms.

When the mood is all revealed,
and happiness is crystal clear,
the clouds will open up and we'll shout at the sun.
Making noise and starry eyed,
the caption closed for us to die
and when it is our time we won't have to question why:

…That giving up makes your let down much worse
and crying songs are babbled verse by verse.
So I'll rely on imagination.
Someone should relate with what I'm faced with.
Each of our lives can be described with words but
not a single one is ever heard.
All alone at night while you dream in bed
the song of who you are is finally written.

Someone, somewhere
sees what I see.
When foul mouthed youngsters
fly through their teens
and young men share fists
when life grinds at their wrists.
To fall back and say goodbye,
we will not live we will not die.
Track Name: Bluebird
All of the things that I feel are troubling me
are all swept away by a tiny little fish in the sea.
And when my heart sings I know he will sing back to me,
"Patience is what hurt you, but patience is what you need.
Pride won't help at all. Patience is what you'll need.
Let go of what you battled. Listen to me when I speak."

All of the things that I feel are troubling me
are all blown away by a tiny little bird in a tree..
And when my heart sings I know he will chirp back to me:
"Listen to your best friends your best friends are who you need.
Just fly amongst what loves you. The love inside is what you need.
Don't forget I met you. Lift your wings come fly with me."

I know I'm lucky to find faith in the little things,
but can you tell me why theres no reply whenever my heart sings?
All I've got is what I've got and thats fine.
One day I hope I'll wake and she'll be mine.
Sometimes I wonder if it's worth it at all.
Maybe love is something just way too small
and those who hunt it are just wasting their time.
I'll wait my turn at the back of the line.

We pretend it wont hurt
and hurt ourselves in return.
'Cause I don't think you'll stay,
So give back the that love I gave.
Track Name: 'Til Death Do Us Part
Her beauty is forever and her boyfriend would agree
her name resounds in quiet towns and rolls throughout the streets.
If i had a love like hers i'd sit back and relax
'cause whats the point of worrying when this girls got your back?

maybe i will be there when the girl replies "i do"
maybe i will sink back in the love that i once knew
judging from my distance and hearing all the words
i know someday her pretty face will get what she deserves.

Go on living your life now
don't let it pass you by
Cause what you've got is one in a million
You know its worth a try

Go on living your life now and
don't let it pass you by
Cause what you've got's one in a million.
You know its worth a try.

A flashback to a veteran returning to his girl
and just for one split second all seems right amongst the world.
In the hallway where I'd finally see you meet your man
you sing straight from the heart a song that loves the best it can.
he whispers what she wants to hear from when they had their start.
He holds her in his arms says "baby, till death do us part".

Go on living your life now
don't let it pass you by
Cause what you've got is one in a million.
You know it's worth a try.

A rush to those single souls
a blinding familiar waiting embrace
struck to these commodities
holding your loved one
and that's all it takes
and I bet
You couldn't see
all of the beauty that lies within me.
And I can only love you for who it is you are
no matter the distance you'd hear my guitar
screeching on the melodies i wish that we could sing.
Just like how you do with the one that gave you the ring.

Go on, test my halo.
We're not the same
but were close.
We're not the same
but were close.

Go on living your life now
don't let it pass you by
Cause what you've got is one in a million.
You know its worth a try.

Go, go on.
Go, go on.
Go, go on.
Go, go on.
Track Name: Neighbors
Neighbors, come unto Thee.
Or consequence will vanish all the leather bound books to the sea
And follow all of what's from me
Or take it as a warning call to whomever hath doubted me.

A blistering reality put forth to those who think.
An awakening clarity free from those that make you drink.

Neighbors, want to rest your souls?
Gather round the cottonwood and carefully do what you're told.
Salvation! The end is near!
Collect all your belongings and sing with me! There's nothing to fear!

A blistering reality put forth to those who think.
An awakening clarity free from those that make you drink.

The make believe that one time is all it takes.
Sucked in, closed mind.
The pressure builds on those to face.
Breathe in; Breathe out.
The air you'd think is so much more than what you make of it.
People isn't all we are: Spectacular immensities of atoms formed directly from the stars.

A blistering reality put forth to those who think.
An awakening clarity free from those that make you drink.
