My heart is thoroughly twisted thinking of the things that I should have said And for the words that did escape my mouth there'll be a hefty price upon my head Cause it's easy to win the argument when there's no one on the other side It's not so hard to write about the things that I won't abide by Cause I've done this to myself What's been done is done I've done this to myself I've shattered all I love I can't take back all this anger, nor the things I believe are true But I would take back how I said it all if I could see how it had hurt you See the problem with being wise as sin, you can't let anyone inside Cause the time will come, you'll be wrong but all the bullshit you pull you will justify But I've done this to myself What's been done is done Now I'm a stranger to myself I've shattered all I love What's been done is done I still haven't found the answers, no matter how hard I dig inside And I apologize I'm not the man I've tried to be for all my life See there's power in stepping through the veil, see what you know is true It's the lesson I take away with me, though I've lost all the love I had from you I’m sorry that I let it slip away, but just allow me to explain that it goes like this What's been done will live on.

Capture (free) 04:40
As days stretch on break of dawn is understated As night kicks in the evening's din is wholly faded The sea and sky are wondering why their child is jaded And in your eyes the caption why is contemplative This capture... Is mountains high and deserts wide This rapture... Is city small and traffic crawl, where conviction's small but judgment's tall It's sitting in my living room, it's living in this living proof This once charade it's no parade, it's not important It's lying there beneath the air it's struck a chord and... As dust will fall the people crawl and shout their 'has beens' It never will become the real at least not for them

You will fight with conviction, but you won't fight with your mind You will fight with opinion, but you won't fight with your own You will fight for my soul but only to glorify yourself And you will fight to be judged fair, but you'll never hold a trial Think for yourself Passion will rule your reason Hypocrisy will rule your nation I'm black, white, gay, straight, compassion, indifference, love and hate I'm dark, light, fight, flight, the sun in the day and the moon at night Our father who art in heaven, please send word by your name Not through presidents or false prophets nor ancient books, nor claims to fame Give us back an identity and strike down pretense at knowing your ways Give us unity and peace and understanding so pure, or give us nothing and let us... Think for ourselves Passion will rule your reason Hypocrisy will rule your nation I'm black, white, gay, straight, compassion, indifference, love and hate I'm dark, light, fight, flight, the sun in the day and the moon at night (Only through our god, could you be saved) Should the righteous fear god For they have no sovereign but reason No guidepost but their hearts Could letting "love" in your heart give you the right to hate and fear and judge, demean I read a book once and thought it was real, had a few ideas I thought I'd steal Til it got out of hand I was fighting for my promised land I had soldiers and soldiers in nations untold Empowered and bold to stomp on the souls of those Who won't go to the promised land

Nineteen 04:42
I could contemplate some better ways to sail the world in 80 days but I should probably just stay home today while wide awake sleep life away for I know, that what I know's known yesterday and now is just an old cliche so Why would you hang on to what's yesterday when all it does is leave you hangin So I suppose the only way to live is every breath, a chance to give it one shot Live out loud with every moment give yourself a chance to own it But leave out fear and hate cause all it does is leave you alone and it just slows You down, why quit before you have begun and why walk when you can run Hello to a new day comin over me with open eyes a chance to see that So much I have to learn's ahead of me and so when it comes I'll be ready And so I give to you thought of today though tomorrow it may not be so Don't you, ever keep that love at bay and don't sleep your life away

Stir 04:22
There's something about the way I feel about you, it's a stirring in my soul And every time this feeling comes upon me, I don't want to let go, but it Won't fall all in to place like movies move and plays may play, there's more for us to do A comment on your grace, the smile upon your face, and you know that it rings true Wondering how to get myself through Show you my love belongs to you What if you could believe everything I say Would you know we're better off this way Two lips, your eyes, your hands on mine it's too much to bear Your clothes, your skin, it's all in kind and only fair You're starting to feel it now and it's all just fine to whisper the truth You've never known a love like mine This life is introspection Til you find the right direction Find love and throw yourself in This life is letting light in

Could you believe I'm sorry for, being myself again Cause all it seems to mean to me, is saying the wrong thing When you turn to look at me, I turn to stone but melt inside Have you ever felt it that, what you wish you could share is what you need to hide Oh, I know, this could all be living in my head But then you looked at me, there's something I should have said Oh no, I'll turn away believe what I always have That I'm just a little boy reaching for the brightest star over my head Told her I would be her friend, in a way I believed it too Funny how we make these plans, but rarely do things do what we expect them to Believe me when I say, I tried to forget, to hide away the truth But to me your honesty, is a beauty that I couldn't shake from you Oh, I know, this could all be living in my head But then you looked at me, there's something I should have said Oh no, I'll turn away believe what I always have That I'm just a little boy reaching for the brightest star over my head So now I've passed this on to you, I wait for the axe to fall I'll probably start to shy from you, what could you think of it all Still when all's said and done, I feel I've made the choice I really should have made Cause now this is an open wound, so it can start to heal and maybe start to fade

All in You 05:30
My life has been written as two things One confidence, assurity, one fear of what the future brings And I don't remember dreams, As vivid as they are I can't hold anything But I do remember you, You were dancing in the rain and I remember saying... Jaw dropped as she walked away Turned to my side just to say Damn that girl done struck my eye Her sway is like a lullaby Throw myself in and here it comes, Looks like we march, to different drums My heart goes in but don't come out Same sad story they all talk about Naturally came sorrow songs, But before too long Your love came crashing like a wave Lucky me to get swept away I'm all in you I'm all strung out on faith's desire, with my voice to sooth I'm all in you And my voice will never tire, saying...

Life 07:41
Forgive me, give me all that you can now I do believe I'm strong enough to be your man I know I jumped in much too quick My heart was in it I must admit Please understand I know just what you're thinking On your own is easier than pain But being alone is kind of like drinking Do you really see truth through the haze? Life is, Every breath you take based on the choices that you make Tell me when you're lonely and I will be your one and only Every breath you make, it's the chances that you're willing to take Life can be sure... Tired excuses and you can't refuse it Push away something to make room for something else I think that it's time for a bit of soul searching Searching for reasons to forgive yourself When every excuse is just like the last girl "My life's a mess and I can't deal with this stress" Well don't you think I know what it's all for? But I've never downed a chance at being wrong Life is, Every breath you take based on the choices that you make Tell me when you're lonely and I will be your one and only Every breath you take it's the choices that you're willing to make Life can be sure... I'm just askin for a chance to show you not all love is riddled with pain Everybody at first glance can seem the same Forgive me, oh, forgive me please for preaching I know the heart ache has turned you cold But maybe that plateau you wish you were reaching Is not something you get til you grow old Is not something that you can get on your own

Jilt 04:07
red painted room, barren four walls laughter once had a face now its a chasm that strikes from the heart alone in the house where you used to dwell I'm quietly breaking down and tearing down walls that you built for the kill silently cursing cause I need you still, and though I know, this is probably just another heart ache take it slow... we bow from the stage a graceful decline and though we may still have love there's nothing to bridge all the cracks in our game theres no way to tell us what we want's the same

The rain crashed down, I stood in the street Rolled down bare arms off my fingertips and made puddles at my feet The street lamps light lit hazed, but the message is clear I bow my head in praise wishing you were here I'm wishing you were here Now I'm crippled and shunned as has always been done to those who perceive And I hate to bare weakness but I fear that in this, I've lost faith in belief So don't you say that I've bid you farewell When compassion reigns you'll see that I've never left What if we all gave up at once, gave up on the thought that others need And what if all this world had forward to see was the backs of those concerned with greed I read a letter that said missing child, I thought, excused what could one man do? I through the picture to the wind and see what it has lead me too The pain of having given up, the loss of human faith Compassion grips on sweetened lips, the cry, "what have I done for this?" Oh please, don't give up on me... The rain crashed down, I stood in the street Rolled down bare arms and reminded of taste, bitter with defeat The street lamps light lit hazed, but the message is clear I spend my remaining days wishing you were here I'm wishing you were here

Wasted Time 04:29
I feel twisting words and have them seem like They're real, everyone goes, your time is wasted Tightly, a feeling clenched within my chest when I see you've grabbed my heart and pulled it out again Lately I see belief turning over old leaves, Nothings new, the clock moves onward What if every word was late and wasted? I'd be nothing but a wall that you'd go over And my time is wasted Okay, I see what you're getting at but, Let's say life's a bitch and then you die for, What cause? Here's the truth now yell it out that Someday, procrastination catches up with you And my time is wasted here Now it's life I've tasted in you No more time to waste in here To say it plainly what if... We find ourselves in twenty years still saying we're afraid of it? How much time do you have... To see how it's controlling you, reveal yourself, to thine be true And if you find your peace of mind, throw yourself to your own kind

Stef's Song 04:10
I was just livin life day by day Never thought much of anything, never figured life would change But then you walked on through that door Now I'm livin and lovin life just a little more So let me be the one say, and let me be the one to pray for you, and say to you just live your life the way you do We trek across this barren plain, if we could do it hand in hand to be, you and me this ecstasy and now we'll see it This exultation, my creation, this newer state Is evidently in relation and quite blatantly All because and the greatest clause lay in the wake My heart belongs to you and my soul is yours to take

Alone 01:58
city's gone to sleep no one here but me wander on my own wonderin why I'm alone thought it was simple babe, your eyes held all I need and though I know you're not to blame the weight is crushing me the city's painted heart reflection of my own strollin through the dark it's better on my own
