Track Name: Golden Morning Light
Wake up, wake up you sleepyhead
Now it’s time to be what you’ve always been
You’ve been caught up in the damn
Of the fading of your light
But you’re the company command
No surrender, you must fight

Take heed of the sound ringing battles in your night
Hear the pounding of your thoughts as they rage
And when you see the glory of the golden morning light
You will feel the glow of change

You don’t call the shots, but you don’t know the reasons
why
And it’s your life, that you can’t decide
Cause what you know is what you fear
And what you fear you believe
And you’ll believe you don’t deserve
If your fears are all you dream

Take heed of the sound ringing battles in your night
Hear the pounding of your thoughts as they rage
And when you see the glory of the golden morning light
You will feel the glow of change

You’re stuck lying there, waiting for a sign
All along it’s you who’s been passing them by
But you don’t want to face the blame
You’re content to play the fool
Easier to live in chains
Than it is to break your rules

Take heed of the sound ringing battles in your night
Hear the pounding of your thoughts as they rage
And when you see the glory of the golden morning light
You will feel the glow of change
Track Name: Gabriella
Gabriella, sing to me
Don’t forget me, when I leave
You belong to another guy
But Gabriella, you’re mine tonight

Full-speed ahead and I’m caught in her storm and
No news of return, I set-sail in the morning
I think that I’m in…

I draw the curtains, you draw the line
That splits the color in your eye
Two strangers, this despite
Gabriella, you’re mine tonight

She said she could love if the timing was better
That she’d be my girl, if only I’d let her
Let’s run away and get…

I chase you, you hide the key
I’m too old for games, you’re too young for me
We’d never work in real life
But Gabriella, your mine tonight

“Hello California,” the sun lights your face
Farewell to yours fears with the miles you have traced
And don’t forget to send me…

Your love was hidden right from the start
Upon my sleeve, a beating heart
I’ll never know you, this much is right
But Gabriella, you’re mine tonight
Track Name: Mother's Wrath
Cut me down to size and
Bleed me til I’m dry
Oh, how you’ve tread on me

Feed me with your poisons
Bruise me carelessly
Oh, how you’ve tread
And now that you dread
That this is the end
Don’t you cry to me

Slowly drips the leak
Below the base is weak
Oh, how you’ve tread on me

Something has to give
Revenge it is so sweet
Oh, how you’ve tread
And now that you dread
That this is the end
Don’t you cry to me

Shake you from your slumber
Drown you in my tears
Feel the scorn of too many years
And soon you will be just a memory
Cause, If I’m going down I’m taking you with me
Breathe deep for this will be your last
Feel this Mother’s wrath

I gave you my life
For granted you take
It’s been a long time coming for heaven’s sake
And maybe you’re sorry, but it’s too late
For the eye you’ve turned blind has sealed your own fate
And though I still love you, there’s no turning from this path
Feel this Mother’s wrath
Track Name: Let's Start This Fire
You know who I am
I know what you are
I think that’s enough
At least a start

I hear through your silence
My breath fills your lungs
Your cigarette lingers
We don’t need gasoline, we’ve got blood

Let’s start this fire
We’ll watch it burn together
Let’s start this fire
And make it last forever

Maybe you’re damaged
And maybe I’m strange
Together we’re stranded
One and the same

The pulsing inside you
It calls out my name
No one can hear us
Watch the world pass us by through the flames

Let’s start this fire
We’ll watch it burn together
Let’s start this fire
And make it last forever

The salt from your lips
It pumps through my veins
Your flesh on my fingertips
We’ve all the fuel that we need, spark the blaze

Let’s start this fire
We’ll watch it burn together
Let’s start this fire
Track Name: Ballad Of The Black Box
The lights go out I close my eyes
We start to fall, I realize
The night it stings, we gasp for air
No use to scream if I’m not scared

But I’m so tired of waiting
To stop this shaking
The bow is breaking from the strain
To tell my tale is to pretend
For I’m the only
One who knows the end

Why is this happening?
Is this real or is it dream?
A flash of light is all I see
Through the clouds of memories

And I’m so tired of waiting
To end this shaking
The bow is breaking from the strain
To tell my tale is to pretend
For I’m the only
One who knows the end

Hold on, why, I don’t know?
It’s no remedy for what’s below
In this seat is where I’ll die
And when I’m gone, please don’t cry

And I’m so tired of bracing
For what awaits me
The ground is racing up to me
To tell my tale is to pretend
For I’m the only
One who knows the end
Track Name: Big Sur
Highway, take me skyway
Float me on your clouds
My love wanders softly
In the gardens of her mind

But, I don’t mind, oh, I don’t mind

Deep blue cold Pacific
Crashing on and on
Winding cuts the ledge
Golden coast, golden edge

It shimmers like fire on the sea

We all need a place
To take us home
Along the way you weigh; the things you love, where you belong

Sunset red horizon
Going, going, gone

It won’t last long, oh it won’t last long

We all need a place
To take us home
Along the way you weigh; the things you love, where you belong
Track Name: The Storm
A rumble of clouds, throw sounds to the crowd with scowl
So bolt down your cups for the winds are beginning to howl

With a quickness of glance, your chance to advance has now ceased
So drop to your knees and turn in the souls you have leased

And the preacher keeps time with a ragged refine
At a pace that defies his bones
And with sweat on his brow, he nervously vows
To never give up his throne

Oh, but there’s no escaping the storm

With a wit to forfeit all the sins that befit his prestige
The courage he feigned was quickly replaced with unease

For the self-righteousness he possessed, repressed all of his heart
And the hate he displayed for the unsaved became that which tore him apart

And the rivers rise high to meet blotted out skies
That shed down the waters of old
And in your good book it’s told that you reap what you sow
So why do you harvest your woes?

Oh, and there’s no escaping the storm

The lies that infect all the ones we elect we believe
So long as we think that we’re fighting the same enemy

And these foes you must smite to make right of the might of your team
Just reflect all the shame in the game of your hypocrisy

And a thunderous crash turns crumbling ash
To the cloak of the wicked deceit
And with blood on their hands, they anxiously stand
Solemn in their defeat

Oh, and there’s no escaping
Oh, and there’s no escaping
Oh, and there’s no escaping the storm
Track Name: Amelia Bean
When they say that you’re too young
Or when you feel as if the world has won
Just remember, you’re the only one
Who can help you now
Who can cry out loud
There’s no reason for you to hide

Amelia Bean where have you been?
Look out your window the sun wants to play
Amelia Bean where have you been?
Look out your window the sun wants to play

Leaves turn into the color of snow
Takes away all your dreams and nothing else grows
There’s a reason for your season and in the end you’ll know
Why sometimes we
Need pain to see
What we can’t with our eyes

Amelia Bean where have you been?
Look out your window the sun wants to play
Amelia Bean where have you been?
Look out your window the sun wants to play

Amelia Bean where have you been?
Look out your window the sun wants to play
Amelia Bean where have you been?
Look out your window the sun wants to play

Amelia Bean things aren’t what they seem
Look in yourself and you will find a way
Track Name: I Believe
I believe in you
I believe in me
I believe in us
I believe that we

I believe in love
I believe in lust
I believe in lies
I believe in trust

I believe your eyes
I believe my fire
I believe our hearts
I believe this desire

I believe in chance
I believe in fate
I believe in destroy
I believe in create

I believe in want
I believe in need
I believe we get
What we believe
Track Name: Forever Lasts As Long As It Takes
If I let you go
Would you still hold me tight?
Like when the love we owned
Would light the night, right

I’m standing in the road
And the air feels cold
You’re running for your life
Back to when you were alone

And even though we couldn’t go on
In my dreams you still haunt

It’s so easy to end what we make
But forever lasts as long as it takes

And if you run too far
And you forget just what it is
That made you run at all
Made you cry all those tears

Remember that you couldn’t be strong
In a place where you didn’t belong

I always knew that our time was at stake
But forever lasts as long as it takes

If it seems unfair
Falling back into the start
It’s ok to be scared
Follow the sound of your heart

Cause if it ain’t what you need you should leave
Save your fight for something you believe

Careful of the thoughts you create
Cause forever can last as long as it takes
Track Name: The Lighthouse
We were born
Soft, in fallen form
Heir to the heavens and the sands

Hard we’ve grown
And shaped the world we know
By weary hearts and withered hands

And some believe
To bleed is to concede
The sovereign sway and rule of man

But we’ve come so far
To fall apart
So, leave this scar and take a stand

Break the bread
To starve the overfed
Heal the battered hands of time

And words divine
Twisted to divide
Lift the veil up off your mind

And when we’re long, long gone
Will we pass on?
A World gone wrong, far behind

We belong
To all that’s come and gone
All that is and will ever be

A moment’s blink
Has brought us to the brink
The time is now for remedy

Cause we’ve come too far
To fall apart
Open up your heart and you will see
