Track Name: Gravestone Metaphor
scream into the broken mountains
give them your strength, they need it more
if you’re going to spend it on
tricks to play me like a gravestone metaphor

So we’ve come to this point, we are standing at the edge
and will the fall be worth it all?
and those eyes they are torn with every spectacle that scorns
the lord that you have come to trust.

but you’re too fast and i couldn’t swerve
wouldn’t you say that you’ve got nerve
to go on and eat all your evil,
like a setting sun a junkie and his needle.

so scream into the broken mountains
give them your strength, they need it more
if you’re going to spend it on
tricks to play me like the one you knew before

as you rest looking your best, i clutch the cross hung on your neck
and hope to heavens they got you.
for without you, the air exudes a likeliness to feel such gloom
as the dew seeps through my veins

but he’s too fast and i couldn’t swerve
wouldn’t you say the man’s got nerve to
take me to the places he brought you
i don’t suppose a swindle’s made by fluke

scream into the broken mountains
give them your strength, they need it more
if you’re going to spend it on
tricks to play me like a gravestone metaphor
Track Name: Break Line
Well I, fell for you
Now I paint my tears before I go to sleep
I don’t even recognize you
are a stranger please leave

But she’s a woman now don’t find it threatening
But I have this world to figure out
So you let go of my direction
I won’t need a map of your intentions

Through your heart I’ll try to sew the break line
Through your heart I’ll try to sew the break line
Nobody bleeds like you do
Through your heart I’ll try to sew the break line
Nobody bleeds like you do

Nobody bleeds like you do
Track Name: Spinning Out Of Control
call my way
To talk about a confrontation.
oh hear me through
i wont be a part of that, I’m not a part of you

like a sister, you always were,
you know the better part of me.
Now i’m the bad guy, back with my demons
and defensive as can be.

you’re so smart, but so down
spinning out of control

She denied you quietly,
While you were down south staring at the stars.
Call yourself a man of dignity
But have you every color in your heart

so secure,
above the clouds where you can’t see a thing
and all you need
is a sanctum and a diamond dream

heard you were running, along the shoreline
before the dawn rose in.
cursing your anger, to the ocean
heavens, can’t i win?

you’re so smart, but so down
spinning out of control
Track Name: All In Good Time
I think it best you keep your friends, i’ll keep mine and not pretend that always , always i let you down always, always a habit i’d found

about to take off up on the plane, you’re in my head , running down the lane but oh my, i can’t stay here, changes come despite our fears

i’ll see you someday all in good time, i’ll see you someday you’ve this heart of mine

and now that you’re back from faraway land, no longer a child without a plan. in my old bed i’ll never sleep again, for i am changed sister learn the same. oh , i am changed sister learn the same

i’ll see you someday all in good time, i’ll see you someday you’ve this heart of mine

oh my skin, enveloping my bones. oh my skin, deliver me to my home

i’ll see you someday all in good time, i’ll see you someday you’ve this heart of mine
Track Name: Alot Of Heart
The muse awoke the dawn, to paint a red sky
The wind embraced my body gave me a tainted kiss
Said are you ready for this? you might be missed.
Said are you ready for this? you might be missed

Because when you least expect it, people will plead
Sending invitations so that one day you might see
You’ve got a lot of heart, you’ve got a lot of heart

And so I wrote a letter to the devil
Questioning things about the human soul
Well I don’t know, if ill be missed
I can’t accept your tainted kiss

Because when you least expect it, people will plead
Sending invitations so that one day you might see
You’ve got a lot of heart, you’ve got a lot of heart

You’ve got a lot of heart and we all knew it from the start
Track Name: White Candle
why are you so stable,
when it only ever really makes you sad?
if you’re young and more than able
do not fear the things you’ve never had

but now with the times ingrained in us,
i find it hard to laugh
parliament locked up the gates
and everyone’s turning their backs
on what we have. its not enough.
what more can i give than to give up

its not good to bank your anger
when your baby brother swears he needs you more than ever
before i was a mother the weight of the world was more than i could bear

but now that i have played the part
its your turn to do the same
there are people out there, dying to meet you
can make the change, you’ll do great
i have faith
that you’ll be somebody, one of these days

white candle of the night
the rain stole your light
and you’re older than you’ve ever felt before
but you’ll learn to live the same maybe more

you might be somebody one of these days
you might be someday one of these days

child, dreams may deceive
but you’ll always have a right to your trying
darkness may be on your mind
but your friends provide the light through hard times

you just can’t understand how they go through life so calm
kicking back on pavement yards all glasses up til dawn
well you dont know how they do it so long

white candle of the night
the rain stole your light
and you’re older than you’ve ever felt before
but you’ll learn to live the same maybe more

you might be somebody one of these days
you might be someday one of these days
Track Name: That's Gold
you stare into the room
that has plagued you with all its doom
to become, the one you love

and pastor says your confessions may be brave
yet you stare at your reflection with
no shame, to erase

and thats gold that you’re wearing on your head
and thats gold that one man wish he had

and i died last december only for a reaction,
and now you’re standing above me teardrops in my coffin
so helplessly, i rest in peacceeeee

and thats gold that you’re wearing on your head
and thats gold that one man wish he had

then you stood up to the crowd, shouted yes i may be mad
but at least my mother was proud
and just as you thought you’d told a lie
put your head to your knees and started to cry
saying “this will be the day that im alive”
this will be the day that im aliveeeeeee!

and thats gold that you’re wearing on your head
and thats gold that one man wish he had
Track Name: Say Grace
Why don’t you say grace,
from across the table
Eyes closed give thanks
Fingers all entwined,
Amen whispers through the flames
I love this kin of mine
But what good have I done to deserve it.
when everything feels foreign
and you don’t recognize yourself
go back to the table
remember familiar smells
the comfort of imperfection
the beauty of their yells
but I don’ think I deserve their affections

I know you think that all is said and done
But you’re wrong, you’re wrong
And when the china becomes dusty and null
Be strong, be strong
This name will carry on,
in our children’s children’s blood

blackbird hits the window
as she held my hand and said
in a year or so
I’ll be lowered to the dirt
And you’ll visit occasionally
like a rose growing from the earth
your beauty will bless the breeze
through the mountains, the trees and the sea
and once in a while whisk by me

go on , go on, this name will carry on
go on, go on, in our children’s children’s blood
