Track Name: Younger Mans Rule
I will not bend any more rules to land on solid ground
From the first time I spoke from my heart I lost all control
But now its time to make my resistance to this younger mans rule
And its gonna take me right to the limit, but if it don't hurt it aint real
You can take all my pride, I'll give it all to you
Cuz this is just my beginning, and now it's time to start my rule

I'm gonna conquer my past today
Not gonna bury it away anymore

I'm gonna face the ones who lied, and forgive em all cuz I
can't hold on to these demons anymore
Like some younger mans rule

I've ruined all of my chances to hold on to her love
Cuz my youth has built what I can't grow, now it's time to rise above
But now its time to make my resistance to this younger mans rule
And its gonna take me right to the limit, but if it don't hurt it aint real
You can take all my pride, I'll give it all to you
Cuz this is just my beginning, and now it's time to start my rule

I'm gonna conquer my past today
Not gonna bury it away anymore

I'm gonna face the ones who lied, and forgive em all cuz I
can't hold on to these demons anymore
Like some younger mans rule
Track Name: Promise Land
Lately I’ve been cut down by this weakness
Like the world set my mind on fire
Everything I reach for, everything I love just burns the same
Nothing I could do but run away

So I went on the road to find myself
Left behind everything that meant something
Sharp faces caught hold of the dark places in my mind/soul
Til this old man turned to me and said

Young man you got it all wrong
Can’t keep living like the world can’t see you
Just give it up, give into who you really are
Maybe you’ll find what you’re looking for

Give you the love that you need so bad
Bring back this confidence you’ve shaken
Fill you up, with everything that you once had
Let your soul and spirit fly to the promised land

So I found my way back home
Sun drenched skin, and my aching bones
All of my life, all of my right to be free
Won’t be broken by the the worst in me

Maybe it’s all coming down
Maybe I’m not that strong
But what I’ve found is I close my eyes and I can see
Everything, everything that sets me free

Young man you got it all wrong
Can’t keep living like the world can’t see you
Just give it up, give into who you really are
Maybe you’ll find what you’re looking for in the Promise Land
Track Name: Steady
Steady you've got to make the right move
She can feel it she's got those eyes in the back of her head
I know there's walls here for a reason
And I can't tell if I'm man enough
But I see a life that I wanna lead
And I can see a love that I can need
So I just find the right feeling
Put it in the back of my mind
I'll never waste a day on these childish games
I'm old enough to know who I am
I'll find all the reasons
To fill up my lonely days
With the feeling of love
That I've gathered inside
Hold until I need someone

Oh no I want more than I can handle
I want a love that's right here in the back of my mind
Oh know I want more than I can handle
I want a love like no love that I can find

Well twenty three is gone for good
You've got these sharp knives in the back of you
Telling you to stay far away from the man
That tells you what you cannot do
So I just find the right feeling
Put it in the back of my mind
I'll never waste a day on these childish games
I'm old enough to know who I am
I'll find all the reasons
To fill up my lonely days
With the feeling of love
That I've gathered inside
Hold until I need someone

Oh no I want more than I can handle
I want a love that's right here in the back of my mind
Oh know I want more than I can handle
I want a love like no love that I can find
Track Name: Crawl On
I see the fire fading in my wake
As I run towards the dark
Mans made of moments and mistakes
Can’t understand my fires mark

But I find all of this freedom terrifying
This battle's done I’ve got nothing left to bleed
I’ll run the line until I find a place to hide

But these stains of corruption have torn me down
Resisting the urge to turn around
My battles led me here to say
Led me right here to say

Crawl on crawl on my love is free
Clear out the pain, give life to the needs
Crawl out of this mystery
break free from the chains
it’s the time to prove who you are
Til your battles done

Run to the space in between
The pain and the pleasure in what i seek
Seems such a shame to stay the same
No good ever comes when i am weak

Cuz I find all my weakness is tearing me down
No love to lean on, no mercy to be found
I'll tow the line until I find a place to hide

But these stains of corruption have torn me down
Resisting the urge to turn around
My battles led me here to say
Led me right here to say

Crawl on crawl on my love is free
Clear out the pain, give life to the needs
Crawl out of this mystery
break free from the chains
it’s the time to prove who you are
Til your battles done
Track Name: Give it Up
Made my resistance to the change
sold to the highest bidder
gone is the honor that I’ve earned

Plagued by the bitter and the weak
No way to resist their inhibitions
But take solace in your name, your history

Done are the actions that you can’t hide
And free is your soul to revival
Make the peace you need inside

Love is a canyon that seeks you
Bred by the strength that contains you
This is the day you find it true

Just give it up
Let it all go
This is the road

Just give it up
The end is near
You’ll find your home

Pushed out the faith that made me bleed
Corrupt by the prophets who rob the weak
No selfish man will make me believe

Love is the strength of my angels
Pulling the strings of what holds me
Absent are rules disguised for trust, for what they need

Just give it up
Let it all go
This is the road

Just give it up
The end is near
You’ll find your home
