Track Name: Where We Live
We tried to skip town
But you'll still find us hanging around
I don't think that we'll make it out
Cause this place keeps holding us down

This is where we live
(it's not where we wanna be)

Please give me a map
I've got to find my way out of this trap
I only meant to stay a year or two
Fifteen later, and I am a fool

I want to be free
But these clouds are hanging over me
Something's telling me I better sit tight
Cause this place is gonna put up a fight

This is where we live
(it's not where we wanna be)
Track Name: Ready To Run
My bones feel like they're ready for war
My feet like they're ready to run
And my lungs feel like they're ready to breathe in the air
Under a different sun

So I won't change my pace

'Cause this is where I belong
And I'm not ready to turn home
I'll do whatever I can
To find us a road that's leading us to no end

If you look a little deeper into what you feel
It might just make itself clear
If you seek whatever is calling your name
You may find the source to all of your fear

But once you go
There's no turning around

'Cause this is where I belong
And I'm not ready to turn home
I'll do whatever I can
To find us a road that's leading us to no end

Look to the sky
Don't you look past the night
You know in time you will find
That your soul may arrive

'Cause this is where I belong
And I'm not ready to turn home
I'll do whatever I can
To find us a road that's leading us to no end
Track Name: Done Me Wrong
I had something to say
But you didn't hear me
You never listened anyway

I gave up so much of my time
Just trying to stay on your good side

You done me wrong
All along
You done me wrong
And Now I can't even hear your name
Without the blood boiling in my veins

Congratulations

It takes some kind of man
To point his finger at me
While he's stealing from my hands

I hoped and I prayed that that's not who you were
But the longer I'm away from you the more I'm sure

You done me wrong
All along
You done me wrong
And now I can't even here your name
Without the blood boiling in my veins

Without the blood boiling in my veins

All along
You done me wrong
All along

You will never know
The harm
That you've done to my soul
I guess I'll let it go
You'll never own up
oh no
oh no
Track Name: Mornin' Light
Oh, morning light
Morning light shine in
Take the devil's darkness far away from me
Oh, morning light
Don't you leave me now.
I'm not strong enough to face this night alone.
Oh, morning light wont you lead me home?

By the day you are yourself
But by the night you are someone else
You are not proud of this disease
But you are longing to come clean

Get out of your bed
Open up the door

Oh, morning light
Morning light shine in
Take the devils darkness far away from me
Oh, morning light
Don't you leave me now.
I'm not strong enough to face this night alone.
Oh, morning light wont you lead me home?

The light of the body is the eye
If that's the truth you can gouge out mine
I'll try to be a better man
But I am shameful for who I am

Oh, morning light
Morning light shine in
Take the devil's darkness far away from me
Oh, morning light
Don't you leave me now.
I'm not strong enough to face this night alone.
Oh, morning light wont you lead me home?

Oh, morning light, morning light shine in.
Track Name: Strangers
When thoughts run through my head at night
There's always one that stays awhile
And I still clearly remember
The night you looked into my eyes
An image burned forever
In my mind and I've never seemed to let it go

And all along it's given me hope
you've given me hope
Can we go back
One last time
Just one more time

We were strangers on the road
When I met you far from home
I didn't know what I had found when I found you
But you went your way I went mine
I was a fool for losing you
And I've never seemed to let it go

And all along it's given me hope
you've given me hope
Can we go back
One last time
Just one more time
Track Name: I Was Made
Is this the long way down
Or am I on my way back up again
It's getting hard to tell
While I'm trying to find my place
Between heaven and hell

I'm not waiting for another day
While all my dreams fade away
I won't turn into another man
I was made to float across the ocean
I was made for you

Does it trouble your heart
To think about the future
While your past pulls you apart
Time keeps moving on, and on and on
The more you try to slow it down
The sooner you'll be gone

I'm not waiting for another day
While all my dreams fade away
I won't turn into another man
I was made to float across the ocean
I was made for you

I was made for you
I was made for you
I was made for you
I was made for you

I'm not waiting for another day
While all my dreams fade away
I won't turn into another man
I was made to float across the ocean
I was made for you
I was made for you
Track Name: Soul Searching
I am soul searching
You can find me another day
I am soul searching
There's something out there calling my name

I'm not workin' the lines
And you won't find me inside
Trapped and alone, I need to be free
From this wearisome routine

I don't mean to be distant
And I'll be back in time
There's a weight on my mind, I need to be free
So don't try to reach me

I am soul searching
You can find me another day
I am soul searching
There's something out there calling my name

Now they're testing my patience
They can't win this fight
Cuz I can sever the ties, I'll set myself free
So don't try to stop me

They fooled me again
I should've seen it coming
But I starved and I slaved now I'm broke full of shame
I should've followed my instincts

I am soul searching
You can find me another day
I am soul searching
There's something out there calling my name
Track Name: A Cheating Heart
I know I know I know
I left you there
And I can't I can't move on
Without you dear

I left you stranded and all alone
You were defenseless and without hope
You came out stronger and more prepared
You don't need this man and his cheating heart
You don't need this man and his cheating heart

I know I know I know
I left you there
And I can't I can't move on
Without you dear

I left you stranded and all alone
You were defenseless and without hope
You came out stronger and more prepared
You don't need this man and his cheating heart
You don't need this man and his cheating heart
Track Name: One of Your Sons
I've been down the loneliest road
Was I looking for truth, or just making my own?
I don't know

I want to be blessing, I end up a curse
I hate to admit that I'm getting worse
I'd take any step just to know who you are
but here in the dark, I can't find your heart

But I've seen too much to just let go

I'd give anything to know who you are
How I hope that there's room for me in your heart
Cuz I might as well be no one
If I can't be one of your sons

I've got so many questions, it's hard to believe
That out of your pain would come my relief
Is it enough to be sorry for what I couldn't be?
When you gave up your soul and became it for me

And I know you don't let go

You've done everything to show me who you are
You still love me though I've broken your heart
I might as well be no one
If I can't be one of your sons
Track Name: In Your Mind
Paint a little picture now
Of where you're from
Of what you've seen
And what you've done

Paint a little picture now
Of who you love
And how you feel
When they are close

Go there in your mind
Just go there in your mind
Go there in your mind
While you can, While you can

Paint a little picture now
Of a place
You long to go
But don't know how

Stay a couple minutes there
Take it in
Breathe in the air
That feels so real

Go there in your mind
Just go there in your mind
Go there in your mind
While you can, While you can

Go there in your mind
Just tell me how it feels and what you find
Go there in your mind
While you can, while you can
