Track Name: Stone's Throw
Cast a stone for every mile
Thought about but never made
Gathered the stones and built a pile
Left the pile in it's place

Walked away with no regrets
Or second thoughts about the past
Just unmade memories left behind
And a chance to try again

But if it sinks in
Before I cast out
It's bound to weigh me down
Like a ton of bricks
It's sinking in
I can feel it now

But I'm willing
To learn from this
If that's what it takes
I'll give it
All I got to give
Until my spirit breaks

Cast a stone for everytime
I thought to change but never did
Gathered the stones and built a shrine
Until the shrine became to big

Then I left it all to rot
Forgot about all my mistakes
I started gathering again
Until a new shrine takes its place

But if I give in
While I wait it out
It's bound to bring me down
Like an anchor
I'm sinking down
And even faster now

But I'm willing
To let go of this
If I can find the strength
Then I'll be
Weightless
And I'll surface again

Cast a stone for ever hour
I let the seconds slip away
One by one they built a tower
Turned the minutes into days

But if I could get these seconds back
Would they still go to waste
Could I have what I never had
If I never let these seconds fade

Time spreads thin
Like a virus
Squeezes out the life
Creates a state
Of emptiness
Grows like a vine

So let me bleed out
Like I'm dying
Put my bones to rest
I'm weak now
But I'm fighting
Ain't got much left
Track Name: A Wanderer's Song
I watched as days
Turned into nights
I watched the moon fade
And the sun rise

I've been in love
And I've been alone
And I've got to rise above
Just to feel at home

I've seen the young
Become the old
I've seen nothing at all
Turn into gold

So then when I'm gone
I won't be coming back now
Wherever I roam
Whether or not I belong
I'll make a home
But I know it won't last long
No it won't last long
Know it won't last long

Down and out but not forgot
Just holding on for something new
A piece of what I never had
Just to taste something true

So I will wander for a while
On a road that never ends
Searching for a lost smile
Hoping that I find some friends

Cause I'm aware the truth at hand
There's nothing sacred here for me
Just a road that never ends
And a dream of being free

So then when I'm gone
I won't be coming back now
Wherever I roam
Whether or not I belong
I'll make a home
But I know it won't last long
No it won't last long
Know it won't last long
Track Name: Bitter Cold
I was a mile south of Virginia
On a greyhound headed home
What was waiting for me when I made it there
Only my devils know
It was just the first day of winter
And the air was bitter cold
I somehow always find myself here
Every time it snows

It's not to far for me now
I can see the end of the line
It's a golden light with a silver lining
Revealed in good time
Taking it slow and steady
One god damn day at a time
I know now I'm ready
And I ain't afraid to die

And I know
I'll find my way
Through the maze
Cause the sun
Is fail safe
It'll light the way

Now the days go by
So fucking slow I
Can't seem to tell if
They even move at all
But I don't mind the standing still
As much as the not going anywhere
It's what leads me to a place
That's neither here or there

Yea I know
It's not what's best for me
But I don't know
How to love
Without the pain and misery
Keeping me company
Keeping me grounded keeping me free
These are the things I claim to be
Ever evolving eternally

And I know
I'll find my way
Through the maze
Cause the sun
Is fail safe
It'll light the way
Track Name: Crash and Burn
Sunlight's gone away,
So what's left for me?
Nothing but the darkest days,
Or so it seems.

Better watch out for me
I'm bound to be
Cast into the depths of hell
Or so it seems to me
To me it seems to be
It's empty

I couldn't slow down
Even if I knew how
So I rode until I broke down instead.

I let the wheels turn
Until I felt the rubber burn
And then, I turned them some more.

Distance is the only thing
That keeps me here
It's sad or true or both it seems
To me it seems to be
To me it seems to be
It's empty

I slid and crashed
Till' I felt the road rash.
Then, I smiled and laughed.

I can't slow down
Now that I know how
The stillness would kill me for sure.
Track Name: Nowhere New
Coming back around again
But I feel I've been here all along
Singing all the same old songs

Only now the words have changed
And I'm struggling to find the key
And I lost the melody

But I don't think it matters much
Just hoping that at least it feels the same
But even the name has changed

So where do go from here
Do we start from scratch and pretend it's something new
Or do we keep playing through

There's a line
Missing from the verse
And I can't recall
What I heard

It sounded like
Dying mans words
But were they spoke
Or gently whispered

Now I'm back where I began
Singing all the same old songs I sang before
I can't write new ones no more

I'll just change the words a bit
Switch around the chords and move the key
But I'll keep the melody

Don't think it'll matter much
Don't think that anyone would ever know
If they did they wouldn't let it show

So what's the point if I
Write something new or recreate something old
I don't think I'll ever know

There's a line
Missing from the verse
And I can't recall
What I heard

It sounded like
Dying mans words
But were they spoke
Or gently whispered

I could have swore I left this place
But now I'm not sure I even moved
Now I'm scared to learn the truth

So now I'm trying to
Hold onto youth to keep from growing old
Now where's there left to go
Track Name: Travel Well
I'll always choose
The road less chose
And never lose
Sight of the path I roam

This choice I'll make
Will lead me home
And set the stage
To see what the future holds

Our lives have changed
For better or worse it's all the same
Cause one day they'll change again
But until then
Travel on
And travel well my friend

Along the coast
The sun's setting
We're chasing ghosts
With hopes to cure the dead

But on the ride in
I watched the shore shift
I watched the light bend
It changed the way I think

Our lives have changed
For better or worse it's all the same
Cause one day they'll change again
But until then
Travel on
And travel well my friend
Track Name: Where The Spirit Grows
I stand in a river
Watch the stream as it goes.
The water rushes by me
But the moment moves slow.

As I stand in this river
Soaked to the bone
Life passes by me
Like a river to a stone.

But there's hope I know,
I've seen it here before.
I know where it grows,
I've seen it choose it's form.

Therein lies,
The secrets to life,
And they'll never hide anymore.

The air is crisp like the winter,
Watch the snow as it falls.
The wind blows right by me,
I barely notice at all.

I'll be lost here forever
Watching snow as it falls.
And life passes by me
I couldn't care at all.

But there's hope I know,
I've seen it here before.
I know where it grows,
I've seen it choose it's form.

Therein lies,
The secrets to life,
And they'll never hide anymore.

And I will live this
Forevermore
Until I choose
Choose this no more.

As the spirit grows
Will I have chose
Float with the river
Or sink like a stone

Where will we go
From here
Where will I go
Track Name: Stronghold
I'm drunk again
From sipping on my sins
But I like to let
This feeling sink in
Cause in desperate times
And times of need
I like to let
These feelings feed on me

Long after I'm gone
Will you still keep
The words to my songs
Long after I'm gone
Will you still be
Holding strong

The things I want
All this shit that I need
The things I am
All my god damn beliefs
Don't matter now
Won't matter then
Because some how
We'll make it through the end

Long after I'm gone
Will you still keep
The words to my songs
Long after I'm gone
Will you still be
Holding strong
Track Name: Long Way Down
I know I let it go to hell
But there's still a part of me that keeps looking back
Hoping there's still something there
Hoping there's still life sifting through the ashes

But I'm almost sure there's nothing left
Not even bits and pieces of the wreckage
But I can barely look away
Now I can't bare to look away
I can't bare to look away

Cause It's a long way down
But I'll enjoy the ride
And after I come crashing to the ground
I'll enjoy the climb

I still believe in what we had
Whether it was real or not doesn't seem to matter
As long as the memory remains
Then it's enough to keep me from collapsing
Underneath the pressure and the strain
And the constant thoughts that I caused this disaster
But I know I'm only half the blame
I can only take half of the blame
I'll only take half of the blame

Cause It's a long way down
But I'll enjoy the ride
And after I come crashing to the ground
I'll enjoy the climb

Can't pass the time when you're
Holding out for something that you can't have
It's only right to let it go
So let it go
Don't let it hold you back no more
Track Name: Devils In Flight
Somewhere I lost
All sense of myself
Like a faceless ghost
Between Heaven and hell

Guided by the wings
of devils in flight
Misled by the words
of angels who died

Now I
I don't need
And I
I don't believe
In anything
Anymore
In anything
Anymore

I'm slowly washing away
Like coast lines fade
The tide eats me
And I'm lost at sea

As I begin to drift
I forget what I was
My memory slips
And I'm lost in the flood

Now I
I don't need
And I
I don't believe
In anything
Anymore
In anything
Anymore
