Track Name: We All Belong
Cuz We All Find the truth
At the end of the road
And it's all been too much
Change will make us follow through

We all belong to love
It's in our hearts in my bones
Built to stand the test of time
Like no other man made lie will do for me

Cuz we all find the truth
At the end of the road
And it's all been too much
Change will make us follow through

We all test our unity
And cut through fear with patience drawn
Filled up to the brink of all
My resolve and understanding

But we all test our truths
Dive through love with no more mercy
And we find all we need
All we see can set our future

Don't let the lies tear us apart
Or take us down
Rest on the waves keeping us safe
Keeping us loved
Track Name: Shuffleroo
We so much poorer when the lights are on
I'd rather listen to the world in total darkness
Cuz all around is positive people
Reaching out their arms just to find someone to love

I'd like to see the vision from a million miles away
Maybe their lives are better with where they are
Cuz who needs a TV when you got so many people to love
And who needs to feel anything that isn't real

Love outside
Conquers my mind
Hearts that find
Positive purpose
All in my time
Those that try
Those that can
Change something

I'd like to see the world from a million years ago
Maybe the times were better with where they were
Cuz who needs those things when you got so many people to love
And who needs to feel anything that isn't real
Track Name: Own Resolve
Here I am in my own resolve
Finding a way to cut through with heart
But is everything changing
Or is it all my way
To feel my world is spinning round
Not laying lies to rest

But all I am
And all I want
All I need
Is a place to feel some love

Here I am at the end of the day
Feeling so helpless oh what can I say
But is everything changing
Or is it all my way
To push away love and innocence
I think I'll change my ways once again

But all I am
And all I need
All I want
Is a place to feel some love

Here I am feeling so innocent again
Like when my heart was left to love
But she took it right away
Oh all of my time feeling so justified now
Like the time we spent in love
Can't seem to bring it back again

So here I am at the end of the line
Feeling my ways make me out of my mind
But is everything changing
Or is it all my way
To find so many ways to sabotage my heart
Leave it alone once again

Cuz all I am
And all I want
All I need
Is a place to feel some love

Here I am feeling so innocent again
Like when my heart was left to love
But she took it right away
Oh all of my time feeling so justified now
Like the time we spent in love
Can't seem to bring her back again
Track Name: The Limits
Well my heart will set some limits
When you use me for finding your way through
All our past has led us closer
To more pain than I'm worth to you
So let it all out let it all feel
How it needs to be
Cuz you've left me in a haze
Feeling all of the world on top of me

So what am I now but a man without love
What can we do to make it go away
Why won't our hearts let our love go free
Into the past we can't see

So I'm stuck here now with this mercy
Maybe both of our hearts weren't really there yet
Locked down into some kind of space
Losing all of my room to breathe
So let it all go let it change
What we need to be
Can't you see that I'm better now
You're not the one that I love

So what am I now but a man without love
What can we do to make it go away
Why won't our hearts let our love go free
Into the past we can't see

Cuz a falling through is where I am
Don't believe in changing my heart to let you in
And all of your heart, all of your fears
Still can't find a way for our love
Track Name: Righteous Ones
What do we believe in
What do we deserve that makes us right
Well changing all direction now
I've gotta play this just like in my dreams

Well the righteous ones
Owning all their years of sacrifice
Remembers what it was
To feel so all alone
We crawl out now
Finding ways to rid ourselves of hate
Throw down our arms
For the right to believe

So many years have stained my mind
With nothing more than stale thoughts that make me blind
And it's just the way I deal with loss
Of my heart and maybe more than I can see

Well the righteous ones
Owning all their years of sacrifice
Remembers what it was
To feel so all alone
We crawl out now
Finding ways to rid ourselves of hate
Throw down our arms
For the right to believe in more

Looking back on twelve and ten
I should have been content with just one friend
And the years passed before and since
And I still feel the weight of so many events

Well the righteous ones
Owning all their years of sacrifice
Remembers what it was
To feel so all alone
We crawl out now
Finding ways to rid ourselves of hate
Throw down our arms
For the right to believe in more
Track Name: Talking to You
I’m sitting here talking to you
And I think it’s gonna be a little while
Before think its time to understand

Felt alive today
Nothings standing in my way
But it’s been so long since I have left love you could say
Maybe wanting you is not so wrong

No one in the world will listen to you
will listen to you more than I will
No one in the world will listen to you
will listen to you more than I will

I’m sitting here talking to you
And I think it’s gonna be a little while
Before think its time to understand
That I don’t wanna be your man
I’m sitting here talking to you
And I think it’s gonna be a little while
Before think its time to understand
That I don’t wanna be alone

I’m feeling like another
And I’m talking like I shouldn’t understand
So maybe if we go away
We could try to stay awake
So lets allow ourselves a little time
And we can go away and talk a while
Cuz if its just a thought
Its stuck inside my mind

I’m sitting here talking to you
And I think it’s gonna be a little while
Before think its time to understand
That I don’t wanna be your man
I’m sitting here talking to you
And I think it’s gonna be a little while
Before think its time to understand
That I don’t wanna be alone
Track Name: Summer's Coming
So summer's Coming at the winters edge
And everything is fine with such a narrow ledge
But can't you see what's buried under our feet
Just a million miles of bitterness stemming from their souls

So tell me now what my future holds
And make me feel the days were better before me
And don't let the time turn without humanity
Just make them realize how to compromise, rise above the lies

So make me feel like I'm a man again
Til the daylight returns to the ones that I love
Cuz I don't wanna feel alone again
If anyone should need to believe in me
So make me feel like I'm a man again
Til the daylight returns to the ones that I love
Cuz I don't wanna feel alone again
If anyone should need to believe in me

So here we are sitting on top of the world today
All kind of people all kind things that we could all say
Like who we gonna be what we gonna do
When the world stops spinning around us now
I don't wanna be the one to dissipate one to participate anymore

So make me feel like I'm a man again
Til the daylight returns to the ones that I love
Cuz I don't wanna feel alone again
If anyone should need to believe in me
So make me feel like I'm a man again
Til the daylight returns to the ones that I love
Cuz I don't wanna feel alone again
If anyone should need to believe in me
