Track Name: Modern Times
Modern Times

The man we were after was killed in his bed
He tried to sell fear and paint the streets red
I remember the day that he ended up dead
It was like any other day

We stared in the mirror but we couldn’t smile
Our sadness was heavy, it weighed a whole mile
It lasted forever, we waited a while
We wanted a miracle

I want to fly far away, up
Where diamonds hang in the air
I want to take some light from the sun
And bring it back to share
Place it high up on a hill
Yeah to light up the dark
I want to learn love
Want to break my own heart

I walked past the old church and the ghost of a hymn
Came out to greet me inviting me in
I said “nice to meet you, but where have you been
We already know everything”

And a well dressed up man with a well versed up tongue
He told us to trust ourselves to overcome
I told him I didn’t come here to have fun
His answers were meaningless

These days are noisy
And the shadows are long
The temperature’s rising
And something is wrong
I want to try trust
Placed in a whisper of wind
I heard God speak
When the quiet settled in

Oh modern times, I think of a man
Who puts plastic gloves over his hands
Sets about trying to love the best he can
While keeping his fingers clean

And while we were driving, turned left instead of right
Got out of the car to change all the signs
Made us feel better for a little while
But I knew we were still lost

Direction is uphill
Description is war
But this is our future
That we’re fighting for
So if it gets worse
Before it improves
Darling don’t lay down
We’re gonna find a way through

I want to learn love
Track Name: In My Blood
In My Blood

Intimate as a whisper
You played the loudest bell
I tasted salvation
When your defenses fell

I saw you in a new light
The past was rinsed away
A flower opens so slowly
So the fragrance it can stay
So thick that I can swim
So deep you take me in

Let your water cover me in a flood
Oh I want your blood in my blood
Let your water cover me in a flood
How I want your blood in my blood

At first your bones were shattered
You were blood covered and stained
Darling I could see you broken
And your beauty it still remained
So come in close to me
As close as two can be

Let your water cover me in a flood
Oh I want your blood in my blood
Let your water cover me in a flood
How I want your blood in my blood

I want you to come close
Do not be alarmed
This river to bring healing
It's never to harm

Let your water cover me in a flood
I want us to be closer than we ever knew we could
Your water will cover me in a flood
How I want your blood in my blood
Track Name: The Action Is Rising
The Action Is Rising

Let go of the pen I hold
Let go of everything I’ve known
Let go of a broken past
I’m done with looking back
Let go of the pen I hold

At last I let my own plot go
At last I let my own plot go

Look back on the pages torn
All the creases and corners worn
Stories of a tell-tale heart
In need of a brand new start
Look back on the pages torn

At last I let my own plot go
At last I let my own plot go
Hey, this is not over, just you wait
Hey, the action is rising

Rewrite the story
Letting you in
Take what has ended
And let it begin

Let go of the pen I hold
Let go of everything I’ve known
At last I let my own plot go
At last I let my own plot go
At last I let my own plot twist into your hands
The storyline saved just in time

Hey, this is not over, just you wait
Hey, the action is rising
Hey, this is not over
Hey, the action is rising
Track Name: Arlington
Arlington

Just across the river there’s a place I’ve often been
Where lay rest the warriors and brave young men
I’ve heard gorgeous stories about times long past
Preserved in memories more fragile than glass

On and on
Here I go to my rest
That long repose
That never ending bed

Arlington, I tried and I tried
But the more that I seek you
The more that you hide
Arlington, and it scares you to death
You act like love and suffering
Are two strangers who’ve just met

Just across the river there’s a hillside covered in white stone
I’m fighting a world war with myself to win a love of my own
Just then she walks away and I know just where she goes
She’s gone to Arlington to dig another one of them damned holes

Arlington, I tried and I tried
Just to reach you love
But I heard no reply
Arlington, your face set like stone
With a spine of flesh
And a heart that’s made of bone

It’s a shame
Arlington, I’ll be back here again
I go where you go
‘Cause I’ve been where you’ve been
It’s a desperate place
Arlington
Track Name: Walk In The Dark
Walk In The Dark

Oh darling I see you
With eyes that have changed
In a glass house
I can see where you lay
You suffer in love
So heavy the weight
I know, I’ve been here before

Don’t be afraid
You were built on a stone
When the wind starts to scream
And you’re standing alone
There’s a hand that is guiding
It’s guiding you home
I know, I’ve been here before

Sometimes life is a walk in the dark
Sometimes love is a blade in your heart

So when they cut into you
And the poison does flow
I will follow you down
To wherever you go
You can lean on my heart
When the lights are down low
I know, I’ve been here before

Sometimes life is a walk in the dark
Sometimes love is a blade in your heart

You are the reason
And now is the season for walking blind
But one day you’ll leave it all behind

Sometimes life is a walk in the dark
Sometimes love is a blade in your heart
But one day you’ll leave it all behind
On a path that you’re cutting
Travelling through the night
On that day you will reach out
Touch that beacon light
Alright
Track Name: Tumbleweeds
Tumbleweeds

Rough and tumble
Tumbleweeds
Weeds growing in my yard
Like they’re growing in my heart
And taking over
I tried to cut a path to you
So that you were not alone
But these obstacles to love
Had taken root and overgrown

Patience dear, I’m coming soon
Trip and fall, I felll for you
‘Cause you lead me home

Push and pull
A tug of war
A war that’s in my heart
Want to love you as you do deserve
I still have yet to start
I don’t understand your understanding
Don’t know how you wait
But the sadness I saw in your eyes
It magnified your grace

Patience dear, I’m coming soon
I’ll make my life a gift for you
‘Cause you lead me home

I will find my way to you
‘Cause your love it binds the breaks and wounds
From dislocation
To salvation
‘Cause you lead me home
Track Name: Road Map
Road Map

Highway lines spread out before my eyes
Black and white for miles and miles and miles
I’m following the signs but still I roam
Wandering is the slowest way home

Show me a road map
‘Cause I don’t know where I’m going
Show me direction
For the river I am rowing

I’ve reached the end of yet another road
I’m carrying the weight of one more load
Well hope is still a fire, I feel it burn
Faith is still a wire on which I turn

Show me a road map
‘Cause I don’t know where I’m going
Show me direction
For the river I am rowing
I went to the ocean
And the tide was going out
I stood on the shore there
I was waiting through my doubt
For the sea to come to me

All of my life I have been searching for you
I’m just a poor man in need of good news
Even in the black the cracks can let light through
Let light through
To show me a road map
I will follow where you lead
In your direction
For now I’m where I’m meant to be
I went to the ocean
This time my tide was coming in
It swallowed my footprints
The darkness I was living in
And the sea it came to me
At the edge of a road map
You showed me a road map
Showed me a way
Track Name: White Flag Flies
White Flag Flies

It takes patience
Waiting his turn
No guarantees now
His stomach can burn
His dreams cost more
Than he even owns
Shorter on grace now
The heaviest bones

But when the white flag flies
That’s when the anguish dies
That’s when the battle cries
Are fading away
And when there’s peace at night
That’s when your house gets quiet
That’s when your heart can sigh
And be filled again
When the white flag flies

The road curves up
Around the bend
Another turn now
It’s never the end
We’re always travelling
But what is the goal
And it’s nighttime
Inside his soul

But when the white flag flies
That’s when the anguish dies
That’s when the battle cries
Are fading away
And when there’s peace at night
That’s when your house gets quiet
That’s when your heart can sigh
And be filled again
When the white flag flies

Well sometimes it’s clean
And sometimes it’s dust
Sometimes your heart
Is covered in rust
His arms reach up
He’s asking for more
A little closer
Each time he’s born

It’s takes a soldier
To live with the strife
It takes a hero
To lay down his life
It looks like a graveyard
But darling it’s ripe
So let’s change the world now
We’ll set it on fire

‘Cause when the white flag flies
That’s when the anguish dies
That’s when the battle cries
Are fading away
And when there’s peace at night
That’s when your house gets quiet
That’s when your heart can sigh
And be filled again
When the white flag flies
Track Name: Song For A King
Song For A King

Can a king survive on a peasant’s wage
With the majesty of a humble slave?
Did you really think I could walk away?
I’ve been up and down
Dry and drowned
Stripped and crowned
So where’s your heart live
Where’s your heart live now?

Can a kingdom rise and a kingdom fall?
I’ve been having dreams
The writing’s on the wall
I paint it black to forget it all
I’ve been up and down
Dry and drowned
Stripped and crowned
So where’s your heart live
Where’s your heart live now?

You are a mystery
So open your secrets to me
As long as my arms have the strength
To keep holding on
I will be holding on to you

Darling come to me
I am thirsty now
Will you celebrate when your lost is found?
Does your love remain
Even just an ounce?
I’ve been up and down
Dry and drowned
Stripped and crowned
So where’s your heart live
Where’s your heart live now?
Track Name: Dreams
Dreams

I never was alive
Until I lost the light
Until the fall of night
Until my last defense was gone
I had lost my voice
In the static noise
I was naked and wandering
There was no one around

In the dead of the night
Love came to my side
I opened wide my chest
Her words became my light
I don't remember much more
Wondering why do I forget my dreams?

Our town had a street
Where sometimes you'd meet
A man with two faces
One of them good
And on the other side
There was no more light
We were younger then
We believed in a cure

In the dead of the night
Love came to my side
I opened wide my chest
Her words became my light
I don't remember much more
Wondering why do I forget my dreams?
My dreams

There is nothing more
That I could endure
Had you not been there
Caught in my wounded stare
I called my brother up on the telephone
He knows something that no one else knows

He said, "In the dead of the night
Love comes to your side
She lifts you when you've fallen down
She gives you back your eyes
So just say yes again no matter where you've been
The resolution closer than it seems"

I pray we not forget our dreams
Track Name: Go
Go

Dear you have been talking
Talking in your sleep
Dream you’re on a sailboat
Casting off into the deep
Can you hear my voice, love
When I whisper in your ear?
It’s time for you to set sail
Oh so tell me what you fear

Go, go
Everything you need is who you are
Go, go
While the wind is blowing in your heart

You can’t steer a sailboat
When it’s standing still
You can’t change your tack
If your sails are not filled
You hear the ocean calling
But you are afraid
What is your direction?
The many choices to be made

Go, go
Everything you need is who you are
Go, go
While the wind is blowing in your heart

You will see a light before you
Angels by your sides
You will hear a voice behind saying,
“This is the way
This is the way
This is the way”

Oh it’s time
Oh it’s time to begin
Many miles you will sail on the wind
In my heart
And coursing underneath my skin
You will stay

Go, go
Everything you need is who you are
Go, go
While the wind is blowing in your heart
While the wind is blowing in your heart
