Track Name: Glory
Oh Lord, I rest my faith in You.
Track Name: Alleluia
Alleluia
Track Name: Going Home
I'm going home
She's going home
We're going home

Going home, when we die
Going home, in the sky
Going home, by and by
Going home, to live with Christ

Alleluia

Amen
Track Name: Ending
Children run around
Looking for the sound
Buried underground
Some are lost and found
Waiting for the crown of the King
All over the world

And now I'm caught by heavily sought thoughts
Which are spoken and then whispered
Then released with a shout
Now people shout and they scream
Just to let it all out
They're breaking bricks and bending bars
With their liberated mouths
Un-muted, undiluted, potent poets uprooted
Pierce the heart for a start and then the bones
Feelings unnamed that are put forth in groans
Because every mans a man without a home
My soul will never settle long as the sun is shown
As long as seeds are planted in the heart
And then are grown
Broken wings and all y'all this bird has flown
Through the darkest woods
Now I'm gone to the dawn of a new day
I say, today, that I'm tired
Of acting, and practicing, practical applications
Applied to improve my monetary station in life
Cold blooded strangers telling me what wrong is right
But that's not right
If that were right then I would take what wrong
Now I'm on the green path and singing simple songs
To the son shine, My life's no longer mine
I'm water changed to wine
I'm pardoned for the crimes that I committed
Forgiven, forget it
I'm sick of my old skin so I shed it
I've got dragons dragging on my ankles
As I try to walk, run, flee
Towards the light that woke me up
It leads me towards eternity
So I've got to let it be
Incredibly, edibly, mentally ahead of me
A medley, don't let it be the enemy
There sending me to set it free, you see
The galaxy is readily steadily not dreading me,
Not dreading us,
But Him
Because He came to set it off.

Children run around
Looking for the sound
Buried underground
Some are lost and found
Waiting for the crown of the King
All over the world
Track Name: Sleeper
Wake up O sleeper and raise your head
Lord's gonna raise you from the dead
Shine on, shine on

Dead folks walk around left and right
Lord's gonna heal them with His Light
Shine on, shine on

Crucified King come from that grave
Tell me now brother do you want to get saved
Shine on, shine on

Christ my Savior and my King
He's gonna take care of everything
Shine on, shine on
Track Name: Restless Ones
Restless soul, turning leaf
Tomorrows unknown mysteries
I'm leaving here, I end up where
Into the unknown we fly
We said there's no time to waste
So hand in hand we run this race
Let's end it well
Escape them fires of hell
Wander all out lives
Till we're gone
Pick up sticks and pack your bags let's go
Where things grow, in the hills in summer time
Under trees and over streams we walk and we talk
All our days, into the night
Into the unknown we fly

And our hearts are beating
And our feet they've got a long long way to go
And our souls want to shine
Can't you feel it from your head to your toes

Touching down we're breaking through
To a land that seems brand new to you and me
And God makes three
Lost and now we're found again
This place playin' it's tricks on me
Help me down from a strangers tree
There's beauty here, but I miss it there
Trace my path in wind and snow
Thunderstruck I've got a place in mind
All our time in the world, is gonna pass
Grab your hand we've got some plans to know
Open roads, we're together at long last
Wander all our lives, till we're gone

And our hearts are beating
And our feet they've got a long long way to go
And our souls want to shine
Can't you feel it from your head to your toes

And I thank the Lord, for everything He's done
And I thank my Father, for sending us His son
And I thank that Spirit, for helping us be one
Helping us be one, out there on the run
Track Name: The Walk
Hard lonesome nights
Wake to morning lights
Every man tries to walk a thousand miles alone
Just to show he's grown in the end
Every woman tries to have just a little love
Looking up above in the end

I hope everything's gonna be ok
I hope everything's gonna be ok

Hold on now, chance can't tear us down
Caught on love, storm front's shaking the ground

I'll meet you there
Miles away from here
Every man tries to walk a thousand miles alone
Just to show he's grown in the end
Every woman tries to have just a little love
Looking up above in the end

I hope everything's gonna be ok
I say everything's gonna be ok
Track Name: Answered
I am poured out like water
And my bones are out of joint
My heart likes wax
My strength is dried up now
My tongue clings to my jaws
You have brought me to the dust of death
For the dogs surround me
Wicked men enclose me
They pierced my hands and my feet
They divide all of my clothes

But you, O Lord, do not be far from me
O my strength, O my strength
Hasten now to help me
Deliver me, Deliver me, Deliver me
From the sword
My precious life, O my life
From the power of the dog
Save me, from the lions mouth
And from the horns of wild ox

You answered me
You answered me
Track Name: Community Song
In the end you'll find
Yourself among knee length grasses
Shoulders out, chest out, sky in

Hair rootless and unsettled
Your hair rootless and unsettled

Forming serpent shadows
Longing for some place to call your home
Your home
Track Name: Travel the Land
As I travel the land
I don't care where I am
If the son's shining down on me
And I step out my door
And give thanks to the Lord
For the fact that He saved me
As I travel the land
I don't care where I am
If the son's shining down on me
And I step on my board
And give thanks to the Lord
For the life that He gave me

Hey son, one two timer
Rhymer and describer
Feeling this in every fiber
Because it liver
My recital is unbridled
Never had an idol because that suicidal
And I'm crashing down
Like a tribal, tidal sound wave
Few and the brave
Breaking the shackles of the sound slaves
And then I misbehave
I turn an ordinary line upside down to concave
Cause I'm save from an early grave
That my god gave His competition
Miraculously He maintains pole position
Sticks and stones are breaking bones
And making friction
But this story here is way stranger than fiction
And superstition
It's up in your section
I'll show that affection
With a verbal jab to your midsection

As I travel the land
I don't care where I am
If the son's shining down on me
And I step out my door
And give thanks to the Lord
For the fact that He saved me
As I travel the land
I don't care where I am
If the son's shining down on me
And I step on my board
And give thanks to the Lord
For the life that He gave me

Everybody's born into sing
Including me
And I begin like Animal Chin
cause I'm a Finn from South Bend
My origin is Michigan type kin
I know where I have an haven't been
My engine is running off adrenalin
Through thick and thin
Imagine like Lennon
The feminine and masculine
Coming together could be a mortal sin
The devil ran so fast that he left his snake skin
The coward
He's gettin' overpowered by the hour
Rain showers on this savage garden
My heart was hardened
I beg your pardon
If I'm offensive
And never apprehensive
With the comprehensive
Skills

As I travel the land
I don't care where I am
If the son's shining down on me
And I step out my door
And give thanks to the Lord
For the fact that He saved me
As I travel the land
I don't care where I am
If the son's shining down on me
And I step on my board
And give thanks to the Lord
For the life that He gave me
