Breathe

On a cloudy day 
I see God's eyes 
Shining through
Broken souls
Preaching right
Well aware
Of the cost to their lives

And so the prayers
Come rolling down
Sunlight's edge
God knows
How hard I've tried
To pass the tests
Of life

Forgiveness
The way I've tried
Holy lines
But horrors find
A way to breathe
Stealing air
And choking my life

And so the prayers
Come falling down
Starlight's edge
God knows
How hard I've tried
To pass the tests
And failed

Blessed stream
Sacred leaves
God's own breeze
I dissolve
All wants die
Embraced
I'm one with all life

And then the tears
Come streaming down
The lines of fate, lining my face
Blinding light
Rushing sound
Glory's gate is open for me
Now I know
The price I paid
Was worth it, cause now
I see
And I feel
And I hear
And I heal
And I trust
I know
I love
And I grow
And I breathe
And I breathe
And I breathe
And I breathe

La la la la la la la la la



Falling

Love
Heals all in the end
So let's mend our wounds tonight
Fools we both have been
And I don't want to live my life
Without you

So love, hold me tonight
Love, love me tonight
Cause I falling down into your arms

Love
It scares me to be so close
Am I losing myself in you
You are the one that I chose
What else do you need from me
To prove that I love you
That I need you
And I don't want to live alone

So love, hold me tonight
Love, love me tonight
Cause I falling down into your arms
Screaming that I love you
That I love you
And I need you
So why don't you fall into
My arms



Florida Blues

Livin up in Canada
Can't afford to pay the rent
Freezin my little butt off
And my last dime is spent
So I move down to Florida
Get a job down south
Makin a fool outa myself
And making friends with Mickey Mouse
So now they pay the rent
And money to spend
Life is so hard
Singing the Florida Blues

Living down in Florida
Been six months or more
Gonna to visit my friends
And I know what's in store
Gonna razz me to death
But when push comes to shove
I'll feel right at home
Cause that's how they show their love
Should be lying on a beach
Gettin a tan on the shore
Can't do it at home
Now they got no ozone up north

Livin up in Canada
Can't afford to pay the rent
Freezin my little butt off
And my last last dime is spent
So I move down to Florida
Get a job down south
Makin a fool outa myself
And making friends with Mickey Mouse
So now they pay the rent
And money to spend
Life is so hard
Singing the Florida Blues
Singing the Florida Blues
Singing the Florida Blues



Getting Over You (Ellul / Martin)

Misstep, my breath falls away from me
Eyes reach, will you even notice me
First meet, do you know what you do to me
Feel the pace and the grace of this melody

Getting over you is so hard to do
Getting over you is so hard to do

The folly of youth and all it implies
Warm seas, yet fear can still arise
Under wonder of night are you alone
All the warmth and the love that we should have known

Getting over you is so hard to do
Getting over you is so hard to do
And I'm just standing, abandoned, alone
Getting over you is so hard to do

The river of doubt streams wide
Does your tongue still travel my name
The myth revolving in time
The vision remains the same

Rolling in the flowers of reverie
Confusion owns my heart
Questing, questioning everything
Wondering where you are

Getting over you is so hard to do
Getting over you is so hard to do
And I'm still standing, abandoned, alone
Getting over you is so hard to do

Getting over you, getting over you
Getting over you, getting over you
Getting over



Home

If there's hope
At the end of it all
Then please wake me
From this aching dream
I need a rest
For in the breadth of hope
A chance resides
To go home
Oh take me home

Wisdom's reign/rain
Washes clean
The stains of fools
Were ingrained deep
Into my flesh
But with the weight/wait of faith
My hope implies
Another day
And flowing time
I'll find my way
I'll find my way back home



Icons

Do what I say
Not what I do
Ignorance for wages
And your wage for you noose
Hypocritic oath
In glass houses you live
Sinking boat
Rats first off the ship
Blind superstition
The virtue you applaud
Bow to an idol
Is that idol your God

What price have you paid as you prayed to your icons

Bloody mast
Pirates on the sea set sail
Corporate profits/prophets
Human entrails
Give guns to the hungry
And feed bullets to the poor
You've got too much
And yet you still want more
Bow to an idol
It's the deal that you've struck
Trade your soul
For the almighty buck

Are you proud of the things that you've done for your icons
Ornaments of greed, how you need your icons
Glitter in the light that shone from those icons
Cower in the shadows and bleed for your icons

Armchair warriors
Push a button, kill em all
But without wisdom
Your house of cards will fall
National anthem
Let the flag fly loose
Ignorance for wages
And your wage for your noose
Bow to an idol
Any idol will do
Too bad it can't do
A damn thing for you

My god, what have they done for their icons
Games end in graves, how they've played for their icons
Tragedies that they've hung from their icons
Shame in the name of those icons



Loser

Working hard
Or maybe not
Lady luck takes and gives from us half of what we've got
Yet your standing there
And you're judging me
But I ask, if what you have
Really what you need?

Look down on me
Look down on me

I'm a loser
No house, no fancy car
I'm a loser
You think I'm less than you are
I'm a loser
I've got less than you've got
So tell me, why am I smiling and your not

Do you have enough?
Or have you gone to far?
Does saying I'm half of you make you twice of what you are
And what's the price
Of being so confused?
Do you own your things
Or do your things own you?

And is what you want
Really what you need
Look down on me
Looking down on me

I'm a loser
No house, no fancy car
I'm a loser
You say I'm less than you are
I'm a loser
I've got less than you've got
So tell me, why am I smiling and your not

I'm a loser, loser
I'm a loser, loser
I'm a loser, loser
I'm a loser,
Loser



One And Lonely

Blinded by your silence
I hear your whisper scream
Feel the tension building
Expressionless your meaning

We are the one and lonely

You've got to face the truth
Even as ruthless
As it may seem
All the lies
Of separate lives
The end of our dream

We are the one lonely
The one and lonely
The one and lonely

Deceit fills my hindsight
It's bloodied by your lies
Another knife into my heart
I was a fool to ever try
I gave you all my love
And you threw all my love away
Pain is my best friend
But pain's the price we pay
For love

You've got to face the truth
Even as ruthless
As it may seem
All the hurt
Of separate lives
The death of our dream

We are the one lonely
The one and lonely
The one and lonely
The one and lonely
We are the one lonely
The one and lonely
The one and lonely

Again I'm blinded by your silence
Can a whisper ever scream
Feel the tension die



Road Less Travelled

It's been a long hard road
I drag my broken feet
Over bloody stones
It's been a long hard road

It's been a long hard road
Oh my aching heart
And my weary bones
It's been a long hard road

It's been a long hard road

And I've been down
Lord I've been down
And though I've begged for my death, my release
Lord I'm still around

Ahhh

Sorrow all my days
I have known
And if it weren't for my bad luck, Darlin
No luck would I have owned

Long hard road
Long hard road

It's been a long hard road



Shadows

Perhaps I should be sad
Endings are hard to embrace
But my tears have flowed, and cries have been sung
Sorrow is finally replaced
I swam the depths of that hell

Now that I'm gone
Who'll dry your eyes
And drink your tears

Now that I'm gone
Chased from your life
Forever gone
Who will pull you close
And find your smile
When your shadow of a heart breaks, again

The light returns to my eyes
Despite the cold of lonely nights
And if misery loves company
Then whose pride will you now deny
Whose joy will you find to drown

Now that I'm gone
Replaced by his lies
Will you be strong
And face your fears

Now that I'm gone
What excuse will you find
To defile love
Does your conscience ache
There's no one left
For your shadow of a mind to blame

Afraid to feel, you hide your soul
From the pain and the joy that life gives
So you dare not love, and you dare not be whole
Excuses colour you lips
I'm better off without you around
Blessed is the end of this disgrace, I promise
To grow past the scars that you left
Mere words were the whole of your faith

Now that I'm gone
Erased from your mind
Of shadows fond
You're alone with lies

Now that I'm gone
Memories fade with time
At life's last song
Who will hold your hand
And soothe your fears
When your shadow of a life fades, away

So why should I be sad



Shine On (L'amour)

Stranger of now, once proud,
Spinning dreams aloud

Inhale, so begins the tale
Breathe out, and half a life in doubt
Has passed

Tear the veil away
This journey teases me
Secrets circling deep

Shine on
Shine on l'amour

Again I stare
Into the gem of fate
Facets reflect my state
The future's vain
The past is gone
In the center I remain

Wondering what wanders inside
Wandering wonders and dreams collide

In a burst of life
The answer pierces me
And it's all that I need
Oh please

Shine on
Shine on l'amour



Spring Winds (Ellul / Sloan)

The spring winds carry my life back to me
Reminding me of a time
When I gripped existence
With a careless might
And drank deeply of the juice that flowed
All the while laughing because I
Knew everything was mine without knowing I knew

Standing atop the world
Hair scattered by the storm that I drew
Power held in glorious restraint
I shout in triumph and smile
At this world of mine

The spring winds carry my life back to me
The spring winds carry my life back to me

The spring winds carry my life back to me
And with it the knowledge that I might
Kill my oh so sensible adult
And reclaim my birthright
A child is born



The Now And Tomorrow
(Singing My Song)
 (Ellul / Martin)

Sailing on waves of fate I stray
Illusion breaks as cold and hard as stone
The oceans that consume my precious days
Are but puddles I can leap over
I'm no longer Daddy's little boy
That kid you knew, that child you turned away
Reeling from the remnants of your choice
The silence from the shade

Lost in the fog of my sorrow
Inside a truth I knew all along
You can't stop my tomorrow
I'm still singing my song
I'm still singing my song

Shattered glass is cast across my thoughts
This winding road has never known it's path
Voices on the wind, the echo's caught
Reflections of the past

Tasting the flesh of my sorrow
New blood forms in my aching bones
Shimmering drops of tomorrow
I'm still singing my song
I'm still singing my.....

The now can't last past tomorrow
Are the demons that I fight within or....
Without
The chains that bind me to sorrow
The promises emerge from the shadows of doubt
Soaring through the clouds of what I know
On wings alight, my life, my way
The now will be the past by tomorrow
And I'll still be singing my song
I'll still be singing my song
I'll still be singing my...
Song
