Track Name: Days Go By
I’m finally okay with getting older 
if I’m getting closer to you
cause 30’s not so bad, 
when holding onto your hand
you wipe away all worry, 
I’m happy just to share this day with you

The days go by…

I’m finally coming clean, I will not make concessions
the world could take or leave me,
(But) I’m depending on YOU now
to keep me level headed, feet on solid ground
I cant believe how quick these years have passed

As these days go by
I never question your love
salvation lies, in the hearts of those who know me
These days go by 
things are getting better
I’ll always be by your side
as these days go
as these days go
as these days go by

I swear that I’m okay, things are finally better
I’m happy just to share this day with you.
Track Name: For What It's Worth
When you’re young and dumb

you don’t see the future for what it could be

instead you get caught up in your own sense of fear and uncertainty

I’m sorry that I left


tangled entwined together

we got separated and now we lie alone

tangled bound forever

never unite complete for without you, love is gone


At times I often wonder 
where we would be right now, if I had stayed

give you the love I promised in the letters I wrote you every day

suppose it’s only natural to question a life we could have made.


tangled entwined together

we got separated and now we lie alone

tangled bound forever

never unite complete for without you, love is gone
Track Name: The Drifting
I’m scared to death as I’m paddling out to find peace now

in need of a moment to think

gripping the oars, I cant stop from shaking

praying my vessel wont sink


CAPSIZED! Can you hear my cries?

CAPSIZED! I have been betrayed by that which promised, at birth, to save my life

BREATH IN, feel the water rise

CAPSIZED! Can you hear my cries?


I’m treading water, as panic begins to set in now

I cant seem to right this ship

time drags on, these minutes feel like hours

Solo on this uncharted trip

will I survive this night

have a chance to turn these wrongs to right

this was a humble ship to set sail in

it appears I’m ill equipped

over time I lose my grip and I fall back into the abyss

have I been drifting too far out?
Have I?

have I been drifting too far out?
Track Name: The Shadow and the Shackle
how many bodies down?

22 left above the ground

and I can’t see what sense this killing makes


been trapped behind those doors

no one knows what, why or for

but we know we’re sick of living with this pain 


she screams, why cant you just let me be 

she’s sick of living with this hate

and after all of this, what’s left to be afraid of


keep it inside, there’s no where to hide

that’s where it lies, just waiting to be free

keep it inside, there’s no where to hide

bet you thought you’d never see, this monster inside of me


how many bodies down? 30 more left above the ground 
and I can’ t see what sense this killing makes


how many lies were told

your silver tongue has taken hold

and there’s no way to cover up this mess you’ve made


he screams, where’s God when all that we see

is death upon our streets

and after all of this, what’s left to be afraid of

Track Name: Take it Back
yes its green on the other side, that’s how it seen

through the jaded eyes of envy

The sun went down long ago on those days

you turned your back on everything

now you’ve decided that you want to say, those words to me


take it back take it back

it wasn’t yours to give

take it back take it back

I’m not the one


you always want what you cant have and I was always proud to be, the martyr for your cause

But this will be the last time and I wont double back, on that path that leads to nowhere

If you’re planning to light that flame, you can burn alone.


this is a promise to change

cant believe how foolish I have been

traded my heart for a string 
but now I am severing these ties
Track Name: To Catch a Grave Robber
they deal in algorithmic scripts and double speak 
vampires with a smile and a pen

building their castles on graveyards

and feeding off the children being strangled by the hands that feed them
This is ours today 
and let it be known we’ve built this

and it is not for sale, we are not for sale


this is ours today

to have is to give

You cant take it away

can’ t be taken away


camera shy

Let the light just steal your soul

(I thought this was what you wanted)

dotted lines, sign your life away

I thought this was what you wanted, 
boy smarten up, what are you

camera shy, are you camera shy?


we deal in labors of love

True to ourselves, true to those who have healed us when we were ailing

yes there are the liars and thieves and turncoats in our midst

but we refuse them in our ranks, we are counted as voices not dollars, now hear us
.
I thought this was what you wanted 
to fight with a sword and not a pen

but we’re saving a hundred souls a day

thought this was what you wanted

to let the light just steal your soul

but who’s going to show you all your worth
