Track Name: Ode to Misery
By the train tracks at my feet
Is a man who cannot see.
He’s just trying to defeat
His old misery.


Oh, misery.
Just let me be,
Give me peace,
Some sweet relief.


There’s a feeling in the air
And it feels like life just ain’t fair.
You say I should be aware,
Well my friend, you’re far too scared.


If I should fall weak on broken feet,
Tired of the heat, just let me sleep.
And when I wake I’ll get on that train
With no more pain holding my name.


if my misery is getting strong
and it seems I won’t last long,
won’t you come and send it away?
I know you have what it takes.
Track Name: On the Shore
In my mind lies an ocean miles wide.
And I can’t seem to reach the other side.
‘Cause the tides are coming on strong.
And they’re pushing, they’re pushing me along.

but the waters will recede
and we’ll plant some new seeds.
Together on the shore
We’ll see what the present has in store.


I’m stuck on this one little thought
That maybe, oh maybe I haven’t fought
For the life given to me
I let myself get lost at sea.
Someday I’ll pay the cost
But I don’t wanna give all I’ve got
No, I don’t wanna give all I’ve got
To regretting time I’ve lost.


But the waters will recede
And we’ll plant some new seeds
Together on the shore
We’ll see what the present has in store
We’ll see what the present has in store.
Track Name: Walking On
Wind comes knocking on my door
Tell him I don’t live here anymore.
He lets himself in through
Empty thoughts and broken words
To find me dreaming of warmth.


And I can’t tell you the fear in his eyes.
Oh it took him much by surprise
To see me strong in a place where I belong.
Oh I moved on, I’m walking on.


I’ve walked on land unknown to me
Tell me why it felt so hard to be free.
Second thoughts controlled my every move
But now it seems I’m on my way
Oh now it seems I’m on my way


And I can’t tell you the fear in his eyes
Why should it take him so much by surprise
To see me strong in a place where I belong
Oh I moved on, I’m walking on.
Oh I moved on, I’m walking on
I’m walking on.
Track Name: Wish Me Well
And so the tide rose to meet the land.
And everything around
Every building, every sound,
Collapsed in the name of your throne.
You lean over the edge
Thoughts outside your head
And there you go, there you go, there you go.


Arrows point one way
To leave this place in search of grace.
Arrows guide me to
A love I always knew.


And so the sky fell to meet the land.
And everything below
Every sign you’ve never shown
Crumbled in the palm of my hand.
I lean towards the starting line
Thoughts don’t matter this time
Here I go, here I go, here I go.


Did you feel the earth sink beneath your feet?
And would you feel the need to say goodbye to me
And wish me well?
Why won’t you wish me well, wish me well?
Track Name: Takes Time
Staring out the window
looking for a peaceful sky.
And I wonder if you’re hearing me
call your name into the night.


you can find me standing by,
by the edge of faith and desire.
If you should stumble into my mind
Do not be afraid of what’s inside.

Try to see me
Look now into my eyes
And if you try to free me
Oh I know you, oh I know you will succeed.


It takes time to break away
From the shadows living in this place
But time is just an endless race
To a past I’ll have to face.
Track Name: Cloud My Mind
Shadows slide across the ceiling
Drift into a sleepless night.
In the dark my mind deceives me.
Empty spaces steal my sight.

But in my darkest dreams
I still can see.


I’m going strong now
Through the night
I’m feeling somehow
I’ve made things right.
No trace of fear will cloud my mind.
Oh I will find peace tonight, peace tonight.


Thoughts spill into the silence
Memories that won’t subside
Haunted by familiar presence
When will clarity arise?

But in my darkest dreams
I still can see.


I’ll sleep all my worries away
I’ll sleep all my worries away
And I’ll breathe until the new day
Yeah I’ll sleep all my worries away.


I’m going strong now
Through the night
I’m feeling somehow
I’ve made things right
No trace of fear will cloud my mind
I will find peace tonight
I will find peace tonight
I will find peace tonight.
Track Name: See You There
Every morning when I wake
When I feel your warmth on my cold face,
I turn towards you
To lighten my darkened view.

Promise you’ll stay, Promise, oh sun,
Promise you’ll stay, oh sun, promise you’ll stay.


I sit by the sea watching the wind in my hair.
I sit by the sea hoping to see you there.


And when the night hypnotizes me
And when my sight begins to fail me.
Oh I can hope in you
and know that you’ll rise up soon

Promise you’ll shine, promise oh sun,
Promise you’ll shine, oh sun, promise you’ll shine.


I sit by the sea watching the wind in my hair.
I sit by the sea hoping to see you there.

And if my heart starts to feel so bitter and old,
I know you’ll always break this wall of cold.
Oh I know you’ll always break my wall of cold.


Promise you’ll shine, promise oh sun
Promise you’ll shine on me, promise you’ll shine on me.
Won’t you shine on me, won’t you shine on me.

I sit by the sea watching the wind in my hair.
I sit by the sea knowing I’ll see you there.
Oh I know I, oh I know I, oh I know
I’ll see you there.
Track Name: Unfold
On cloudy days I feel your gaze
Burn through the haze.
Oh take my hand and give me strength,
Strength to feel a change.

And these mysteries unfold
As I lose control.


Oh if I should lose my mind,
Don’t stop me now.
See I’ve been waiting all this time
To feel alive somehow.

And these mysteries unfold
As I lose control.


All the things I’ve tried to predict
Are all the things I’ve only missed
And I will give up my loneliness
for a chance to let you in.


ooooooo ooo oooo…


I feel the warmth sink in my skin
As it’s carried on the wind.
I see the world as it spins,
I see a fire that wants to live in me.

These mysteries unfold
As I lose control.
Track Name: Those Days
Why do you forget to breathe?
Your body is still like fallen leaves.
Oh what are you worried about?
Your eyes turn a gray I’ve never seen.
What are you worried about?


Don’t worry now
The battle is nearly won.
Let your armor down.
Drop the weight of those days
Relieve your withered bones.


Tell me what to do for you.
Your body falls like morning dew.
Oh what are you dreaming about?
Your eyes fade into the sky’s deep blue.
What are you dreaming about?


you should know that everything comes and goes.
Nothing lasts forever.
You ask me, “Could it be so simple?”
Oh nothing is as bad as it seems.
So what are you worried about?
Your eyes watch your life turn around!
Oh what are you dreaming about?
