Track Name: War and Wisdom
hold on, you gotta be kidding...
think fast, what are you waiting for?
your current intention could use some new direction.
so tired, tired of your preaching.
you're stuck in your own deception.
listen up the world's a calling,
how much is getting through to you?
(what's so special, your religion? same old story, different fiction.)

slow down and take your time.
think about the way you're living and how long before you give in.
please just make up your mind.
the only real decision you have is war and wisdom.

so what, what are you thinking,
i'm a soul, a soul worth saving?
we all end up under ground,
so whats the difference?
im not your sheep, you're not my shepherd...
you couldn't lead a horse to water.
when you're down on your knees, are you praying for me? so tell your story with more conviction)
are you praying?


slow down and take your time.
think about the way you're living and how long before you give in.
please just make up your mind.
the only real decision you have is war and wisdom.

what's so special about your religion? the same old story, your brand new addiction.

slow down and take your time.
think about the way you're living and how long before you give in.
please just make up your mind.
the only real decision you have is war and wisdom.
Track Name: Chapter One
I'm not a writer, i'm not a poet
im just trying to tell my story the best way i know how,
to stumble over my words just like i'm tripping over my tow left feet.
but i can say...

i wanna go back to time where i don't feel so alone and abandoned and taken advantage of.
i wanna go back to a time where i feel so alive, and i don't have a care in the world.

im not a fighter, im just a lover trying to get these thoughts from my head down to my arm.
where they will travel a complex circuitry, a highway leading to my fingers, the pen, and the page.
and it will read.

i wanna go back to time where i don't feel so alone and abandoned and taken advantage of.
i wanna go back to a time where i feel so alive, and i don't have a care in the world.

can i bring my black and blue bruised broken body back to you? to mend for me, because i have seen the ugly truths of the world.

i wanna go back to time where i don't feel so alone and abandoned and taken advantage of.
i wanna go back to a time where i feel so alive, and i don't have a care in the world.
Track Name: Never Leave
i am like a cancer, there's no stopping me now.
i'll only go as deep as your body allows.
like the drugs in your veins, i'm rushing my way to your brain.
but i hope one day soon you'll say my name in a more loving tone than you do today.

hold fast and hold steady.
promise me you wont back down.
if your love is real you'll stand your ground.
some things, they don't matter.
we all make mistakes sometimes.
if your love is real you'll stick around and never leave.

i guess i confess that i'm losing my mind from the dress that you left on my floor last night.
i think i'm just afraid of losing you...
all the lights are out, and all the shades are drawn
im still outside trying to look in.

and i hope one day soon you'll say my name in a more loving tone than you do today.

hold fast and hold steady.
promise me you wont back down.
if your love is real you'll stand your ground.
some things, they don't matter.
we all make mistakes sometimes.
if your love is real you'll stick around and never leave.
Track Name: Echoes
this little light of mine, i'm just gunna let it die
because i couldn't bring it back to life no matter how hard i tried.

because it's the days, weeks and months, how the years have flown by.
it's the blood, sweat, and tears. i've lost so much, i'm fine.
you will echo in the back of my mind until the day that i die.

this is my resignation.
this is my call to arms.
this is my stepping stone.
i'm heading out on my own.
but if i sold my soul, then where did all the money go?

because it's the days, weeks and months, how the years have flown by.
it's the blood, sweat, and tears. i've lost so much, i'm fine.
you will echo in the back of my mind until the day that i die.

everything you say sounds the same.
everything you say, so dull and plain.
everything you say sounds the same.

this is my resignation.
this is my call to arms.
this is my stepping stone.
i'm heading out on my own.
this is my coronation.
i'll say goodbye to all my friends.
see you all on the other side.
the grass is greener, yea thats right.
