Horizon. Lift my eyes to the road I heard that out west there was a shore Don't know why. But i have to go now I'm no dreamer. But i heard that's where they go It's not that bad here. But there's got to be more Maybe there's something that will ask me to never go To whom I may say So rise my body Oh sings this soul I throw my anchor to the great below So it was strange when the road west came to an end Cause it's never ever ever ever the same as in your head But the wind was at my back. And something magic pushed me further yet Now I'm sailing. And as the shore fades away something sparkled there below the waves now I'm fallin'. And i feel your embrace Out there in the blue, I disappear with you into the rays and we say So rise my body Oh sings this soul I throw my anchor to the great below Now take my anger bind it to a stone and cast thee ever to the great below

On one dark and sacred night when they met to say goodbye sat upon a cliff above the sea He looked into her teary eyes then up to the starry skies and said there's so much more here than you think I have seen My road indeed it has been cruel but i am still alive and you'll see me die long before i loose Though the world would hold me down I have been given a crown but finding jewels to fill it is up to me so i seek Oh gimme that sunrise I weathered the cold night to see Oh under the stars I wait for first light to gleam So don't cry for me save your tears for the mean who confuse the battle for the war and although i dismay despair this soul will never take cause victory was written long ago The darkest hour it becomes the say just before the sun breaches the horizon like a king so i sing Oh gimme that sunrise I weathered the cold night to see Oh under the stars I wait for first light to gleam

Cynic 04:16
They bombed the clinics and burned the cynic's, then went to Rome and build giant walls men with dreams and mounted kings, across the treaterous continents they trod he preferred his dirty feet but they dressed him in pricey purple robes & said don't read it for yourself, we'll tell you what it says. Now give us gold do you see where this is going? Nowhere good Then they put it on the three ships. Now we're banking on the British to bring it home well I guess that they were too late, cause that Joseph Smith he swears by what he saw and if your wondering if generations bound in ancient politics were the point just ask Paul ask him what he saw And all these men of God don't speak for me at all Every man's his own. There is no law. There's only love my friend now I'm no friend of Nietzsche but I don't give a fuck what you're preaching. Some things are just once and for all kick ass & take names, give vent to your rage ain't that the way to win that we've been told I got the one, two, do unto punch comin', but I refuse to be there when you fall. When you fall And I've come to love the season's. I don't need to know the reasons why they change But they labeled every movement & think we can improve what we can't explain You're missing everything So I've come to raise a panic. I've been hoping the Atlantic for so long and the things I've seen, well my friend it needs to be said. Christ is not your pawn Though you've tried for so long

Gone 02:55
She gone & said it all asked why. I said, I don't know it just feels right gone & break the fall. For you and I like when Jesus put a sheet underneath Pete that night Gone & set it right Reconcile yeah well. You can say that again alright Glory make a home in my mind I know who I am. I know why So take me down to dust Let the mountains turn to fire Let the world be a liar If someday that chariot comes I won't say you see I'll say friend. Just take my hand

Incoming 03:38
Incoming they yelled from a distance I see our enemy They’re marching straight and strong for my heart to strike And leave me there to bleed It’s do or die in the arena of spirituality This is what we trained for so give em’ hell men No we’ll never leave Then they opened fire on me Just for being born and living here, this the penalty They opened fire on me And I quickly died, thank God Now I can finally breathe Arrest and press against the head The sweet sound of understanding We wrestled there in the dark until the morning came Oh Father find me where I falter Take me there again We hope and pray it won’t come to this But we know that it may & I recall it comin back again oh how I hate you now my old friend that pride that pride my greatest sin And they opened fire on me Just for being born and living here, this the penalty They opened fire on me And I quickly died, thank God Now I can finally breathe
7.
It could go either way So I’ve been praying making sure for no mistakes It’s hard but I’m listening I wanna walk until we can’t see home anymore Suddenly somewhere lost in the world My only fear’s that you don’t care So I act like I don’t fight every night & this will be the best or the worst thing that I ever knew And I’m stretchin out You got me now It’s coming down in or out Before long we’ll say it out loud And if only it was the same What you did and what you say I can take it either way If only I knew what to think If we just kinda lye here quiet and wait And we wait But I’ve never known the line between playing your cards right and fate so this will be the best or the worst thing that I ever knew And I’m stretchin out You got me now It’s coming down in or out Before long we’ll say it out loud And it’s stretchin out It’s getting loud Yeah I see it all We’ll rise and never fall Just believe and keep breathing beautiful And I will save it Yes I will save it Yes I will save it And we’ll never fall

Collide 03:40
It looked like we'd have more time. You go so soon. quite a surprise it's like i'm seeing you still. Your spirit stays with me until i rest, i'll stay here and do my best. Memory and forever collide. Meet mercilessly in my mind. While i dwell with the present confined. Liazanne of love and time. Speak your request love. and i'll do my best for us. As sure as the moon will rise tonight i will see you. When the sun and the stars have all died. I will look in your eyes again. So i guess it's true what they say. no promises but one remain. That this won't stop with the heartbeat. we will meet by the river side and lye. wait for night. So speak your request love. and i'll so my best for us.

Only Me 02:34
If it was only me I would try But as it is I'm alone If it was only me I would fight Flags are down. For i have prayed So whatda you say? Are you with me babe?
