Track Name: Stone
i loved you so long ago
when i was young and you would glow
a boy has no such thing as time
dreams will die when the sun is gone
the morning birds and their morning song
the beating heart and breath of life

what happened to the love i knew
the only gift i gave to you
i’ve given you everything that i ever owned
just to watch you drown in a sea of stone

i saw the storm awake
in a blue sky that was fake
i saw the anger in her eyes
reaching out with her withered hands
she sends the rains to a dying land
another sign begins to rise

but you decided this would all disappear in the sea
and you believed you were well in the clear from debris
so you destroyed everything that was near
everything that was dear to me

what happen to the love i knew
the only gift i gave to you
i see these lives just passing by
without a care or a distance cry

i thought it was ecstasy
this illusion was strangling me
hoping for a chance to run away
i find that when i stare
my brown eyes they begin to glare
feel my inside start to decay

but you decided this would all disappear in the sea
and you believed you were well in the clear from debris
so you destroyed everything that was near
everything that was dear to me

what happen to the love i knew
the only gift i gave to you
i see these lives just passing by
without a care or a distance cry

what happened to the love i knew
the only gift i gave to you
i’ve given you everything that i ever owned
just to watch you drown in a sea of stone

i let you feel the sun
your home you did betray
this war that you begun
a price we'll have to pay
this world was yours to run
and you threw it all away
away...away...away...
Hey...hey...hey...hey...

but you decided this would all disappear in the sea
and you believed you were well in the clear from debris
so you destroyed everything that was near
everything that was dear to me

what happen to the love i knew
the only gift i gave to you
i see these lives just passing by
without a care or a distance cry

what happened to the love i knew
the only gift i gave to you
i’ve given you everything that i ever owned
just to watch you drown in a sea of stone
Track Name: It Changes Everything
it's gonna be alright
it's gonna be ok
the past is out of site and everything is on its way
letting go of fear comes a brand new age
that sound you hear is music from a brand new stage

you know how to think but they know how to sell
you can take a drink you can end up in heaven or hell
you hung onto religion like you were hanging from a string
so it forces your decision and it changes and it changes everything

you knew when to kneel and what time to cry
taught you how to feel and what to wear even when you die
but you're the god and you're the spirit and you're the son
and it's not that odd and you can feel it
you know why my boy
you're number one

you were drowning like a man over board
the waves were pounding made you land on another shore
and now you're learning you could always sing
when your voice is burning it changes it changes everything
they keep you guessing where's paradise?
bestowing blessings for a special price
you were a soldier fighting for that king
now that you're older it changes it changes everything

choose the right all on your own
win the fight to fight the unknown
you find yourself in a world that you believed in
remind yourself that's the world you were deceived in
so why do i even try
to hide the things i can't deny

you're praying
obeying
but god loves you when you're paying
you knew it
and you blew it
the devil made you do it

you're praying
obeying
but god loves you when you're paying
you knew it
and you blew it
the devil
the devil
He made you do it

you're praying
obeying
but god loves you when you're paying
you knew it
and you blew it
the devil made you do it

Track Name: You Did it To Yourself
my life
it’s going great
i’ve got it all together
as things always should
i’ve got it good
i’ve got no complaints
i know this isn’t always understood
your life
it’s failing ground
with all the stormy weather
you want this all to drown
i’m going up
you’re heading down
it’s hard to put you back up on your shelf
you did it to yourself

do all the things that you desire
your dreams are burning in the fire
so you thought you were the anointed
so sad to see you disappointed

my nights
it’s all brand new
the people that surround me
there so much i could say
but not today
then i look at you
this whole time you were standing in the way
your fights
i know them well
you’re always into blaming
so my flag’s up in the air
that’s how you care
and that’s how you sell
it’s hard to put you back up on your shelf
you did it to yourself

you did it to yourself
you did it to yourself
you did it to yourself
so welcome to your hell
you did it to yourself
you did it to yourself
you did it to yourself
so welcome to your own hell

do all the things that you desire
your dreams are burning in the fire
so you thought you were the anointed
so sad to see you disappointed
my words are there upon the table
they’re yours as long as you are able
this love is pure manipulating
your slaves are here and now we’re waiting

my life
it’s going great
i’ve got it all together
as things always should
i’ve got it good
i’ve got no complaints
i know this isn’t always understood
your life
its failing ground
with all the stormy weather
you want this all to drown
i’m going up
you’re heading down
its hard to put you back up on your shelf
you did it to yourself

you did it to yourself
you did it to yourself
you did it to yourself
so welcome to your hell
you did it to yourself
you did it to yourself
you did it to yourself
so welcome to your own hell
Track Name: Stormy Weather
did you think that you’d be sitting here
did you ever wonder how everything became so unclear
about a future that you just could never find
did you know that it could get like this
did you ever figure out that there would be so much to miss
from a past you could never leave behind

did you feel that you could get this down
did you ever believe that you could run away from this town
now you sit alone here inside your car
did you think the rain would get this bad
did you ever understand you could lose everything you had
without a road you can’t drive that far

and i can read between the lines
i know that you don’t read the same signs

you always sail in stormy weather
without a cloud up in the sky
but her love will hold everything together
don’t let it hurt when you say goodbye

when you say goodbye
do you feel the wind against your face

do you know the flood is here but you're searching for a holy place
while all your dreams now they gently drift away
do you see how this came to an end
do you finally feel the fear is it something you can comprehend
time to wake up to another stormy day

and i can read between the lines
i know that you don’t read the same signs
i know
i can read between the lines
i know that you don’t read the same signs

you always sail in stormy weather
without a cloud up in the sky
but her love will hold everything together
don’t let it hurt when you say goodbye
when you say goodbye
you always sail in stormy weather
without a cloud up in the sky
but her love will hold everything together
don’t let it hurt when you say goodbye
when you say goodbye

all the words that you said
some were good and some were bad
but seasons change
and we rearrange
for a new day just ahead
every moment you threw away
was a pearl from yesterday
and now you’re here
and it all disappeared
with nothing left to say
and there’s nothing left to say

you always sail in stormy weather
without a cloud up in the sky
but her love will hold everything together
don’t let it hurt when you say goodbye
when you say goodbye
Track Name: A Simple Life
if you could live inside a perfect place
would you be happy if you could live at a slower pace
or would you find a way to show that attitude
always stressing out because you think you have to

and i know that you are serious
it's in your eyes you are delirious
you believe it's too mysterious
for you to simply live a simple life

you balance the world while making homemade bread
you can walk a tightrope while making sure that all is fed
you can entertain guests and help the homeless too
everyone is wondering if there is more that you can do

if i were you i think i'd have a heart attack
i can see the pressure of your world is now heavy on your back
i had a dream of a sunny place that made us warm
but you set sail searching for a complicated raging storm

and i know that you are serious
it's in your eyes you are delirious
you believe it's too mysterious
for you to simply live a simple life

you've got the green light but you don't know where to go
dry land surrounds you but you're somehow stranded in the snow
the mind of a genius but you don't know what you know
know what you know

love
it's only love
there's no need to be so serious

if i could give you a perfect day
would you hold it close or would you throw it away
is it too much to ask for you to settle down
is it too less of a life to get your feet back on the ground
i gave you simple words that never won your heart
you gave me god and guilt that tore my simple life apart
and as you pray to the man who lives up in your sky
i humbly bow out of this fight to you both i say goodbye

and i know that you are serious
it's in your eyes you are delirious
you believe it's too mysterious
for you to simply live a simple life

you've got the green light but you don't know where to go
dry land surrounds you but you're somehow stranded in the snow
the mind of a genius but you don't know what you know
know what you know

love
it's only love
there's no need to be so serious
and i know that you are serious
it's in your eyes you are delirious
you believe it's too mysterious
for you to simply live a simple life

Track Name: I'll Be Fine
i’ll be fine
you know i will
when i knew you were pretending
it made me real
you waste my time
on wasted tears
all the nights that we were spending
those wasted years

in my dreams you said we were true
i believed my bed was made for you
but i don’t know why i believed in your lies

i’ll be fine
i told you that
now i see the place i’m going
and where i’m at
you changed your mind
it changed my plans
you knew what you were doing
when you held my hand

in my dreams you said we were true
i believed my bed was made for you
but i don’t know why i believed in your lies
i was the one you could rely on
but not the one you could decide on
your love was always such a bad sign
i will be...i will be fine

i will be...i will be fine
i’ll be fine

i'll be fine
i said that twice
now it’s time to say goodbye
to your paradise
you can’t rewind
you can’t defend
no more can you deny
that this is the end

in my dreams you said we were true
i believed my bed was made for you
but i don’t know why i believed in your lies

in my dreams you said we were true
i will be, i will be fine
i believed my bed was made for you
i will be, i will be fine
but i don’t know why i believed in your lies

in my dreams you said we were true
i will be, i will be fine
i believed my bed was made for you
i will be, i will be fine
but i don’t know why i believed in your lies
Track Name: You Remind Me
images i see in a world of imagination
dreams they always comfort me
take me from this misery
wrap me in your arms
and always hold me near
this world that was so kind
was not the one i left behind
it’s true it’s what i see
in you

you remind me of someone i knew
she was so kind to me

big blue lights and merry go rounds
everybody's moving up and down
faces twisting shadows shifting
whispers for me to stay
losing grip and slipping away as others walk on by
drowning slowly
when they know me
even though i cry

in my house were memories
sunny skies and growing trees
pictures fading now I'm waiting
the storm knows when to show
stories come and stories go but nightmares still remain
reaching deeply when you don't need me i still call out your name
it’s true it’s what i see
in you

you remind me of someone i knew
she was so kind to me
in you
you remind me of someone i knew
she was so kind to me

in my prayer
i could smell your hair
i need to close my eyes
just to see you there
i'll mark my sin
just to breathe you in
fall from the skies
just to feel your skin

you
you remind me of someone i knew
she was so kind to me
