Track Name: As I Make My Way
I'm seeing light from the other side of morning
Reflected light from the other side of day
I'm seeing light from the other side of morning
I'm seeing light, my mind is blown away

…My mind is blown away -- away
I'll figure it out as I make my way

I watch the world from the other side of owning
The things I've held, I've let them go away
I watch the world from the other side of owning
I watch the world, desires have slipped away

…Desires have slipped away -- away
I'll figure it out as I make my way

I'm on a journey, I've got my faith
I don't have to worry about my fate
The planets align as the will dictates
I'm writing it out as I make my way

I walk through time with a different understanding
Embracing what I see along the way
I walk though time with a different understanding
I'll figure it out, as I make my way

...as I make my way -- my way
I'll figure it out as I make my way

I'm on a journey, I've got my faith
I don't have to worry about my fate
The planets align as the will dictates
I'm writing it out as I make my way...
(As I make my way) As I make my way
(As I make my way) As I make my way
(As I make my way) As I make my way
(As I make my way)
Track Name: Lines On Your Hands
I see the riches that you will amass
And fill your desires, your wealth is vast
The sun's ascending in your sphere
The world is yours
My vision's clear -- my vision's clear

I see the future written in the sands
And destiny is in the lines on your hands
I'll tell you everything that you want to know
First cross my palm with just a little bit of gold

I see the kingdom that you will build
and people will heed your every will
I see the lands that you will rule
Your power's great -- my vision's true
My vision's true

I see the future written in the sands
And destiny is in the lines on your hands
I'll tell you everything that you want to know
First cross my palm with just a little bit of gold
-- a little bit of gold -- a little bit of...

I see the victories you'll score
And all the glory that will be yours
And all your wishes will come true
'Cause fate is cruel
And beautiful -- so beautiful
So beautiful -- So beautiful

I see the future written in the sands
And destiny is in the lines on your hands
I'll tell you everything that you want to know
First cross my palm with just a little bit of gold
-- a little bit of gold -- a little bit of gold
-- a little bit of gold -- a little bit of gold
Track Name: Rescue
I drifted out as far as I could be
Found myself in the middle of the sea
I wondered how I would get back to me
My home was out of sight, I couldn't reach

Did you even know -- could you even see?
Did you even know -- that you rescued me?

Surrounded by the doubts I could not shake
Drowning in mistakes that I had made
But then you happened to go by my way
You pulled me out and back to shore again

Did you even know -- could you even see?
Did you even know -- that you rescued me?

Shaken faith and disconnected from this life
You never left my side
Putting distance between others and the pain
You never walked away

Did you even know -- could you even see?
Did you even know -- that you rescued me?

Did you even know -- could you even see?
Did you even know -- did you even know --
that you rescued me?
Track Name: Hope To Be
You know I've never heard you say a word about yourself
Always thinking, always worried about someone else
Every cut and every blow gets tucked away
But now it's time for everyone to hear your name

Heading for the western sky
You're gonna soar you're gonna conquer life
You just wait and see

I'm pulling for you from below
You're gonna make it big I swear I know
Cause you're better than I'll ever hope to be

Than I'll ever hope to be
Than I'll ever hope to be
Than I'll ever hope to be

A little disappointment never finished anyone
A little bump along the way, there's no real damage done
A little time can change a lot, I know your day has come
You're creating your own path, and the past will be undone

Heading for the western sky
You're gonna soar you're gonna conquer life
You just wait and see

I'm pulling for you from below
You're gonna make it there I swear I know
Cause you're better than I'll ever hope to be

Than I'll ever hope to be
Than I'll ever hope to be
You're better than I'll ever hope to be
You're better than I'll ever hope to be
Than I'll ever hope to be
Track Name: Take a Step Back
Have you been crying out for help
And hearing your echo, nothing else?
Are you being told to wait
But you can't control that pain?

Have you just forgotten all your friends who
Are always asking after you?
Remember the people who adore you
They're here for you --
don't you be lonely

See the view from above
Take a step back
It's not that bad
It's not that tough
See the view from beyond
When everything's gone
You'll find you're strong
You'll find you're tough

Are you blinded by what you feel?
Do the colors not seem real?
Have you just forgotten all the things
That used to make you want to sing?

Maybe you'll heal if you recall
The words of a girl who told us all
"Think of the beauty still left around you,"
-- it surrounds you --
"and be happy."

See the view from above
Take a step back
It's not that bad
It's not that tough
See the view from beyond
When everything's gone
You'll find you're strong
You'll find you're tough

Come around now, come around now,
Come around -- it's not that bad
Come around now, come around now
Come on down -- take a step back
Take a step back, take a step back.
Track Name: Great Escape
I'm arrested by your gaze
Can't let the picture slip away
Let's build a castle, leave this behind
Let's protect ourselves from time
Spirits whispering their thoughts
Sheltered from the chill beyond
It feels like winter's on its way
Can we make our great escape?

Let the hours pass us by
We'll get away
Cause you're the thing that makes me high
...so high

Drops are falling, crashing loud
We're spinning stories out of clouds
I see my shadow disappear
Every time you pull me near
It seems like autumn's giving way
Can we make our great escape?

Let the hours pass us by
We'll get away
Cause I just want to feel alive
Our great escape
And you're the thing that makes me high --
...so high

(solo)

Escape --
Let the hours pass us by
We'll get away
Cause I just want to feel alive
Our great escape
And you’re the thing that makes me high --
...so high.
Track Name: Kneeling
I take my place among the gathered masses
Drifting round the center of the universe
As far as I can see
I float in the direction
Of the wind and of my will
I drink from the spring that's near
And everything's so clear

Now I can't explain
What I'm going through
But it's gonna bring me back to
Distant days, another time
When nothing really mattered, now I find --
I'm kneeling to the earth and I'm alright
(I'm kneeling to the earth and I'm alright)

I find myself among the lines of people
gazing at the wall that's standing tall
after all these years
And then I place my wishes
into spaces where they grow
And yes I know they're being heard
I do not say a word

And I can't explain
What I'm going through
But it's gonna bring me back to
Distant days, another time
When nothing really mattered, now I find --
I'm kneeling to the earth and I’m alright...

The gates are open wide
The heavens they have sighed
At the sight of all this pain
But we can try again

And I can't explain
What I'm going through
But it's gonna bring me back to
Distant days, another time
When nothing really mattered, now I find --
I'm kneeling to the earth and I'm alright...
I'm kneeling to the earth and I'm alright...
I'm kneeling to the earth and I'm alright.
Track Name: We Are Breathing
They teach you -- but you people won't talk
Beseech you -- but the fire won't stop
I know through the anger it's hard to see
But you know -- you all look the same to me

There is blood in the sky
And a fever burns the insides of our minds
But I know we'll get by
Cause we are breathing --
We are breathing

They guide you -- but the valley is long
Unite you -- but resistance is strong
The leaders and the visionaries flee
And still -- you all look the same to me

There is blood in the sky
And a fever burns the insides of our minds
But I know we'll get by
Cause we are breathing --
We are breathing --
We are breathing

I know -- through the hurting it's hard to see
But you know -- You all look the same --
You all look the same -- to me.

There is blood in the sky
And a fever burns the insides of our minds
But I know we'll get by
Cause we are breathing --
We are breathing --
We are breathing
Track Name: Fallen From Grace
Born into sorrow
Baptized in pain
Bathing in vices, to wash it away

Where is the light?
Where is the day?

Is this a choice that I have made?
Or is it just my fate to end up in this place?
And when the moment comes
I'll know what I have done
I've fallen from grace
I've fallen from grace

Finding distractions
Glancing away
Restlessly drifting -- but never escape

Where is the light? (Where is light)
Where is the day? (Where is day)
Where is the time? (Where is time)
I've given away?

Is this a choice that I have made?
Or is it just my fate to end up in this place?
And when the moment comes
I'll know what I have done
I've fallen from grace
I've fallen from grace

Is this a choice that I have made?
Or is it just my fate to end up in this place?
And when the moment comes
I'll know what I have done
I've fallen from grace
I've fallen from grace
I've fallen from grace
Track Name: Bombs Away
Split the sky with streaks of hypnotizing light
Bring the morning to the middle of the night
Give the masses a spectacular display
Back to safety before darkness turns to day

Jets ignited, engines on
Ninety minutes before dawn
Drop them all, fall where they may
Any which way, bombs away

Bombs away
Time to play
Bombs away

Crack the sky with streaks of captivating light
Bring the morning to the middle of the night
Give the people unforgettable displays
Back to safety before darkness turns to day

Falling to the cruising height
Pressure building up inside
Carpeting the whole landscape
No one escapes
Nothing remains
Let 'em have it -- bombs away

Bombs away
Time to play
Bombs away

Bombs away (bombs away)
Time to play (time to play)
Bombs away
Track Name: You'll Stay Right Here
I never thought I would face this day
So afraid of what they'll see
But I'm seeing a shadow of the faith
that you used to have in me

Running around inside my mind
Wondering how this could come to be
But don't you go down without a fight
Are you listening to me?

Don't you go down
Don't you give up
Don't you give in so easily
Don't you go down without a fight
Are you listening to me?

How does forever look to you?
Is it comforting to see?
You know that I'd gladly take your place
But it isn't up to me

And you are far --
You are far --
You are far too good to leave
Now don't you go down without a fight
Are you listening to me?

You'll stay right here
You are gonna stay with me
Things disappear
Are you listening to me?
You'll stay right here
You are going to stay with me
Your place is here
Are you listening to me?

I never thought I would face this day
So afraid of what they'll see
But I'm seeing the fabric of your faith
and you're listening to me.
