Track Name: Soul Catcher
It was an ominous awakening built
into a dream with the back of heads in view not a
single sight foreseen. Chest beating through a paralytic state. I’m conscious but seemingly not awake
to a world I can’t possibly want to be hereafter.
My soul’s keeper, the flesh that binds, paralyzed,
barred in time to dwell in your ploys. Death, your
sword is made of the ashes of what once was.
The bread I consume prepares me for battle.Faith
is confidence in what we hope for and assurance
in what we do not see. As my soul rescinds to it’s
keeper,I’ll find hope in the place that we grieve. Faith is confidence in what we
hope for (I will remain awakening) and assurance in what we do not see. Human
law requires that I stay.I’m saving my escape for the heavens one day
Track Name: Lifespeak
Will I ever have your attention?
Remember when I was young.
You told me I could be whoever I wanted to be
Now you’re looking at the wrong things.
Paying mind to the irrelevant past.

I can’t let you rip my innocence from the very foundation that you built.
Every song is proof that you didn’t raise no fool.
Remember when I was young
when you told me I could be anything?

Here I am, singing to you.
There you are, deaf to my words.
The world sees what you can’t.
Giving in to doubt is your best hand.
I’ll fight for you too, in the depth of your disregard.

Here I Am.

I can’t waste this spiritual gift.
It’s not mine to waste.
Here I am, singing to you.
There you are, deaf to my words.
I can’t let you rip my innocence from the very foundation that you built
Track Name: Warrior Of Light
This scene takes place at the fall apart when I gave up my gift, pouring out my heart.

Lay down my life.
Reinvent who I am.
In confidence I spoke,
In retrospect I know,
that what I did and what I said was the beginning to my end.

I can feel you shifting the weight of my burdens
Undeserving to no end
Yet thankful for this journey.
I don’t know why but you let me in to a world where dreams are not only in my head.

Lay down my life.
Reinvent who I am.
Instill the truth right into these hands.
I can’t fall apart now, as I’m whole and home.
Track Name: In The Hollow (ft. Garrison Lee)
Awaken inside of me
a spirit that sets me free
Not tied to the things of this earth,
but alive where life moves beyond me.

I woke up from this coma,
an american dream,
to live with all the happiness of frivolous things.

The fear has color carved a signature inside of me.

Break away to a life of actual substance.
The world is under my feet.
I’m marching to the call of my father.

We are not dead in our transgressions
but filled with the spirit, the only thing that really makes us alive.

We wear different faces just to stay awake.
Breathing bodies dead to the thought of escape.
Falling victim to circumstance.

I’m passing by like driftwood.
Broken into pieces, I washed away.
Finding the only truth was a river that flowed to you.

We are not lost.
There is a way.
It has been paved by an unrelenting love.

For I know the one who breathes into my lungs.
I now know the one that speaks my soul to life
Track Name: Tunnel Vision
Without your hand upon my wildest dreams,
no bloom will ever flourish.
But with your hand upon everything,
no thing,
no dream could ever die.

Never wanting to arrive,
while always striving for eternity.
Let the train keep a track.
I’ll seldomly look behind thankful for relentless grace
upon this never ending wind.

The enemy whispers quit dreaming.
Flood my ears with your song.
Drowned out the tauntings of not good enough.
Only in your presence can my wildest dreams come alive.
Track Name: Vessel
I’m your vessel of light
Transparent overflow.
I’m your vessel of light transcending luminescence.
Up and out into the light I grow from shadow, dirt, brick, and stone. Among the many alike, our roots move alone
Reaching for the hands of the weak.
To solace we walk, no hand forlorn.
Rewriting the rules of this world.
To live like we do, to reap what we sow.
My favorite love song is the one you sing to me.
You’re forever changing me to who I’m meant to be.
When they see me, I hope they see you.
When they see me, do they see you too?
When this world tells them no, will they run to you?
My favorite love song is the one they now sing to you.
I’m your vessel of light, transcending luminescence
Track Name: Pages
You read me, you’ve read me.
Page after page.
Beginning to infinite end.

Looking at a second story starry sky, captivating design.
Reveal yourself to me.
I want to know you’re there. I saw the proof in the stars that night. So far behind but still moving forward.

Time wasted away on selfish dreams, drowned in doubt.
Call after to call, I got your message.
2 a.m. shoreline walks, the ocean waved as grace gave way.
Seeking where life was, I surrendered to your call.
A calm fell.
Moonlight danced as my soul rejoiced.
Track Name: Materia Spiritus
From worldly minded to kingdom guided.
From worldly guided to kingdom minded.

Pitch black in a well lit room.
Hyperventilating.
I’m right beside myself, if I could just break out.
You hold the key.
Glaring at my core is a keyhole silhouette, my only escape.
You hold the key.
No magic elixir, no shrink ever shrunk this colorless pit I was spiraling into.

I was spiraling into a colorless dimension.
Spirit of heaviness, I will reign over you.
I will reign over you.
Spirit of heaviness, I will get this victory over you.
I now wear the armor.
The armor of God.
From worldly minded to kingdom guided.
From worldly guided to kingdom minded.
I hold the key.
Track Name: Stormwolf
You were just here howling at the moon.
Why did you have to leave so soon?
The wolves harmonize in awe of you tonight.

There is always a calm after the storm.
There is no peace this time, just mourn.

Whether you can hear her or not, she misses you.

She kisses the sky on this lonely night.
This world is a beautiful disaster.

You were just here.

When your soul left,
Part of our hearts turned forever blue.
We try to understand
But the peace of God surpasses all understanding.
Blessed are those who mourn.

She kisses the sky on this lonely night.
This world is a beautiful disaster.

Blessed are those who mourn
For they will be comforted,
Never alone.

You were just here howling at the moon.
Why did you have to leave so soon?
The wolves harmonize in awe of you tonight.
Track Name: Silver Tongue
We made it this far but so far in between
It’s just you, it’s just you and me to see the light,
se-rene.
A motion so fluent.
Only the one divine.
Resonating winds calm my soul’s intent to harm
As I’m reminded as the birds flock in unison against an ever changing current.
One day I will fly with you.

You created us to have and to hold each other,
but it seems the love we have is so hard to uncover.
Revolving in tongues with no resolve.
The beat horse is still alive.
Words will cut but not revive.
You want me to walk, act out your lies.

They say talk is cheap so pay it forward.
Get on your feet and live your words.
As your body gets closer I can see the part where your actions start to precede your heart.
Revolving in tongues with no resolve.

We made it this far but so far in between It’s just you,
it’s just you and me to see the light.
