Track Name: Promises
I’ve got so many defects still you’ve come this far, lets step out in the unknown
There is no promise of safety, but I will stay right by your side

The day will come when these broken bone will come to life
And all the world will fall away, and these darkened eyes will see again will see again

The way it was before

I’ve got broken promises that we will find a way to call this our home, my love for you will never die
So draw tight your coat, cause that cold doubt could sway your mind

The day will come when these broken bone will come to life
And all the world will fall away, and these darkened eyes will see again will see again

The way it was before

Come back to me my love, before we’ve lost our minds

The day will come when these broken bone will come to life
And all the world will fall away, and these darkened eyes will see again will see again

The way it was before
Track Name: The Day Dreamer
Sometimes I wish I was asleep, that way I wouldn't have to worry, about right and wrong
I'd solve my problems in the blink of an eye, then stretch out my arms and fly away to another time
I wouldn't worry about time, I'd just tell the clock to tick in my favor, in my favor
I'd solve my problems in the blink of an eye, then stretch out my arms and fly away to another time

I know you are going down so let me come my dear

In those times I want to be asleep, You quietly remind me how I grow
And if I wasn't ever meant to worry, then where would my reliance in You lie?

I know you are going down so let me come my dear
Track Name: Traveler's Hymn
Oh please believe me Lord it's been oh so hard to keep my mind straight
And oh please forgive me for those vices that make my fingers to twitch

But You make life brand new, make life brand new, oh
Yeah, You make life brand new, make life brand new

Peel back this veil across my eyes and unlock these stubborn lips so I can sing
Oh I know I've heard You say, come now thirsty child to drink and live, yeah

But You make life brand new, make life brand new, oh
Yeah, You make life brand new, make life brand new

Cause when I awoke, I saw the Son and in that light of life, I'll walk
Cause when I awoke, I saw the Son, and in that light of life, I'll walk till my travlin days are done
Track Name: 12 O'Clock At Night
You sat so quietly, your hands folded so tight, you stared straight out the door
I knew something was in the air, something in your blank stare
The clock read 12 at night, as breath escaped your lips, your words were "he is dead"
You stood so awkward waiting for my blank reply, I just stood up and said

Hold me close hold me close don't let me go, I am lost I am so far away
I am lost I am lost come back to me I'm done running away from You

The air is cold tonight inside of my lungs, my God the beating of Your heart keeps me holding on
You give sight to my blindness oh you hold my eyes open
So troubled I lay myself to sleep unable to speak
Am I screaming at these walls only to hear my voice bouncing back to me?
But You hear me and You say "I am with you my son, I am with you my son"
Track Name: Love Song For A Lonely World
I am the light in this darkened room, I'll make straight that which you have made bent
Cause I love you, I love you
I am the bread that will never leave you, hungry and wanting for more
Cause I love you, I love you…
Always

Cause I am the One who has called for your heart
And I am the One who gave up perfect life, to save your imperfect soul
Cause I love you
Always

So come back my dear prodigal you're lost and alone, don't you know you still hold my love and affection
I love you, I love you
Cause I am the light in this darkened world, come take my hand and I'll stay next to you
Cause I love you, I love you

Cause I am the One who has called for your heart
And I am the One who gave up perfect life, to save your imperfect soul
Cause I love you
Always

The earth has felt alone here
Track Name: The Prince of The Air
The prince of the air has been stealing the air from my lungs when I'm tangled up in sheets
I feel him gently compress my chest till I have no breath left, sowing seeds of anxiety and disbelief
My eyes see things that move in the dark, figures I can barely see,
Oh God this is terrible the way they sway and creep
This is more than I can stomach, this is more than I can stand
I reprimand my conscience telling myself this is not what it's like to be a man
But there's nothing manly about the fear that I keep to myself,
Fear of failure, fear of foolishness, fear that this life is it and there's nothing else
But I'll keep to myself for now, I'll justify my passivity and say it's godly somehow
While I cower and say nothing and just wait till I figure life out
But the doubt crushes me like the tyrant waves of the sea
And I finally see why it's not easy for everyone to believe
I beg for a little more courage, a little more strength, a little more reassurance that's all I need
But I'll keep to myself for now, I'll justify my passivity and say it's godly somehow
The prince has been misguiding my step since before I could walk
While I've been singing the praises of my Father sience before I could talk
The prince attacks our flesh when we're young and weak
The Ghost of my Father screams help when I can hardly speak

You hide yourself, still I'm in love, in love with you
You hide yourself, you're worried now and the truth it scares you

Cause I've been the desperate man I never thought I'd be
I never knew that I could fall from such a height
I've made Jesus to a god pent up in a bottle on the shelf that I drink when I am feeling kind of low
And I've been sleeping with these monsters under my bed, and their greedy politics are like my own
Thus a monster I've become all by myself, all by myself

You hide yourself, still I'm in love, in love with you
You hide yourself, you're worried now and the truth it scares you

I was born a fool and excelled at my foolishness
I grew into a prideful child and called my poor self-control humbleness
As a youth I ignored Lady Wisdom calling from the roof tops
I walked with the brazen wanderer like a dear about to get shot
I lost my innocence before I lost my virginity
I lost my desire to live before I learned how to battle shame
I want to grow old and have my children's kids know my name
And I want kids of my own who can honestly love me
God makes us lovely
And we're guaranteed nothing in life but death from life's first cry to our final breath
When you lay me down and bury me deep, I promise I'm not dead, I'm only asleep
Cause death has say over me
I'm not a creature of misled philosophies, I'm the product of careful calculation and honest belief
When the earth sucks the marrow out and swallows my bones
You'll know my heart is full and whole
I'm home, by God, I'm home
