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

Promise Land 05:02
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

Steady 03:36
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

Crawl On 04:40
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

Give it Up 04:44
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
