    "Anger"

    "Anger"


    Like wildfire
    It starts in my chest
    The silence grows louder
    Ringing out in my head

    I feel the Earth shaking under my feet
    I feel the pressure building until I can't breathe
    And it takes everything
    And it all spills out
    Reckless but honest words leave my mouth
    Like kerosene on a flame of doubt
    I couldn't make it right

    Alarms will sound
    But it's too late for holy water now
    Sooner or later the fire dies down
    I'll open up my eyes

    And I'll try and find the image of God
    In mountains made of ash and clouds of smoke
    It's fight or flight
    Buried in my mind
    It's fight or flight
    It keeps my mind cold

    But I feel it break
    With just one misstep down a fire escape
    And suddenly I'm someone that prays
    A last minute man of faith
    But I'll leave behind miles and miles of jagged lines
    Upon the surface of the Divine
    I wish I could set them straight

    Till it all spills out
    Reckless but honest words leave my mouth
    Like kerosene on a flame of doubt
    I just couldn't make it right

    Alarms will sound
    But it's too late for holy water now
    Sooner or later the fire dies down
    And I'll open my eyes again

    "Aperture"

    "Aperture"


    Happiness is somewhere I have been before-
    A blurry photograph that I have since ignored.
    I'll carefully adjust the aperture once more,
    Until I set the record straight.

    I'll brush aside the dim, make room for the bright.
    I'll be an editor, no, a curator of light.
    I'll let my better angels always set me right,
    Until I even out the score.
    Until I even out the score.

    God, it has been quite a year-
    I've lived a little bit and I've died a little more.
    I know that I've asked it before,
    But please let the scale tip here in my favor.

    What was once the sweetest melody I've heard
    Is now a memory reduced to little words.
    I'll tune the orchestra and play the overture,
    Until I pinpoint every note.

    Give me the heart of an archeologist,
    That I may dig until I prove that I exist.
    A subterranean cathedral in my midst,
    Where echos come to rest.
    Where echos come to rest.
    Is this where echos come to rest?

    God, it has been quite a year-
    I've lived a little bit and I've died a little more.
    I know that I've asked it before,
    But please let the scale tip here in my favor.

    Until I set the record straight,
    Until I set the record straight,
    Until I can set the record straight.

    "April"

    "April"


    I close my eyes trusting you
    With every desire to balance now

    The air is perfect, tonight

    The rain, like tears, falls upon my hands
    Carry me
    The rain, like tears, falls upon my hands

    I close my eyes trusting you
    With every desire to balance now

    If I could take away the sorrows
    Etched in you
    I would, I would

    The rain, like tears, falls upon my hands
    Carry me
    The rain, like tears, falls upon my hands

    "As Long As You Love Me"
    (originally by Backstreet Boys)

    "As Long As You Love Me"
    (originally by Backstreet Boys)


    Loneliness has always been a friend of mine
    I'm leavin' my life in your hands
    People say I'm crazy and that I am blind
    Risking it all in a glance
    And how you got me blind is still a mystery
    I can't get you out of my head
    I don't care what is written in your history
    As long as you're here with me

    I don't care who you are
    Where you're from
    What you did
    As long as you love me
    Who you are
    Where you're from
    What you did
    As long as you love me

    Every little thing that you've said and done
    Feels like it's deep within me
    Doesn't really matter if you're on the run
    It seems like we're meant to be
    I don't care who you are
    Where you're from
    What you did
    As long as you love me
    Who you are
    Where you're from
    What you did
    As long as you love me

    I've tried to hide it so that no one knows
    But I guess it shows
    When you look into my eyes
    What you did and where you're coming from
    Well I don't care, as long as you love me
    As long as you love me

    I don't care who you are
    Where you're from
    What you did
    As long as you love me
    Who you are
    Where you're from
    What you did
    As long as you love me

    As long as you love me

    As long as you love me

    "Bad Blood"

    "Bad Blood"


    You fixed your eyes on us,
    Your flesh and blood,
    A sculpture of water
    And unsettled dust.

    When there was bad blood in us,
    We learned our lesson:
    Genesis to the last generation.

    So we wrestle with it all-
    The concept of grace
    And the faithful concrete
    As it breaks our fall.

    Our questions are all the same.
    Identical words; how they feel brand new against different time frames.
    Identical words against different time frames.

    We know it all by heart-
    The whole is greater
    Than the sum of it's parts.

    We've heard it all before-
    In beauty there echoes a speck of our source.
    In beauty there echoes a speck of our source.

    Like firewood,
    Burning bright
    In the dead of winter,
    By only a flicker
    We cling to this life.

    So we huddle over maps;
    Is it faith or prediction,
    Will or tradition
    Until we collapse?
    We argue our bearings
    Until we collapse.

    We study our story arcs-
    Inherently good,
    Or were we broken right from the start?

    Our hesitant fingerprints
    Trace every mountain,
    Lace every valley
    Until we're convinced...

    That we know it all by heart-
    Every blade of grass
    Bears our mark.

    In the name of being brave,
    Though it's just another word for being afraid.

    We know it all by heart-
    The whole is so much greater
    Than the sum of these parts.
    We've heard the truth before,
    For in beauty there echoes a speck of our source.
    In beauty there echoes a speck of our source.
    In beauty there echoes a speck of our source.

    "Birdcage Religion"

    "Birdcage Religion"


    So slowly I'm losing
    who I've sworn to be.
    a promise in pencil
    that years have made so hard to read.
    I've spent my life building walls
    brick by brick and bruise by bruise...
    a birdcage religion that whispered me to sleep.

    but time is spinning silk
    that coils ruthlessly;
    with the devil's patience,
    it binds my hands so quietly
    that soon it becomes a part of me.

    so soften these edges and straighten out my tie.
    and help me remember
    the hope that I have compromised.

    please be a broken record for me.

    "Birthright"
    (feat. Jon Foreman)

    "Birthright"
    (feat. Jon Foreman)



    She was raised by wolves,
    In the warmth of their fur.
    Surrounded by fangs,
    She knew that she was secure.

    Language barriers
    Made no difference at all.
    When you're truly cared for,
    There's no purpose for walls.

    His fences stood tall
    As the shoulders of old.
    But he dreamt that one day
    Maybe he'd break the mold.

    But time shyly stands still
    When you watch it unfold.
    From these ivory towers
    Freedom is only a ghost.

    Right or wrong,
    Tension makes us stronger
    By making us weak
    When we needed to be.

    Privilege and pain
    When compared look the same.
    Comprehension begins
    When we pull back the lens.

    They made her their queen
    On the day she was born.
    They placed on her a crown
    She wasn't ready for.

    But all impossible odds
    Foreshadow our means,
    Like paving a road
    To kingdoms we've never seen.

    He woke up one day,
    Written out of the will.
    They swore he'd be okay,
    With lesser shoes to fill.

    "What doesn't kill us
    Makes us stronger, " they say.
    Our only birthright in this life
    Is the breath that we take.

    Right or wrong,
    Tension makes us stronger
    By making us weak
    When we needed to be.

    Privilege and pain
    When compared look the same.
    Comprehension begins
    When we pull back the lens.

    Our fables tell our truths.

    "Bright & Early"

    "Bright & Early"


    Bright and early,
    Through the curtains,
    The sun comes pouring in.
    Filling glasses up with diamonds,
    Stirring where I've been

    But it's all trigger and effect.
    Dominoes at their best.

    In the end I'm told
    It taught me everything I know.
    That the wreckage left behind,
    Will somehow make me grow.

    But why couldn't I have been safe from the start?
    Soundly asleep.

    The warmth of blankets
    Makes me nervous.
    I'd rather catch a cold.

    Like sparks in matches,
    Blink, you'll miss it,
    The future's up in smoke.

    Though dust has settled,
    I still smell the ashes
    Buried in my clothes.

    It's all trigger and effect, I know…
    Dominoes at their best.

    In the end I'm told
    It taught me everything I know.
    But when the fire took our home,
    I lost part of my soul.

    From the ground up
    I'll keep building
    Houses into homes.

    'cause if trust is ribbon,
    Then patience ties it
    In a perfect bow.

    "Brightly"

    "Brightly"


    So close,
    yet barely breathing,
    My responses are weak.

    Though my eyes are shut tightly.
    May I see you brightly.

    Handshakes and fake smiles
    Always make me nervous...
    Close the door,
    Please, close the door.

    We rise and fall
    From you.
    Climb, climb, climb...
    We fall.

    may w learn from
    The signals of our past,
    The sharpest words we cast
    And begin again.

    I can hear their voices
    Through the walls of this place...
    This cold, cold place
    We rise and fall from you,
    We rise and fall far from you.

    So close, Yet barely breathing,
    My responses are weak.

    Trace these fingerprints, closely now
    And they will form what you're looking for.
    We'll make new prints once more.

    "Capture"

    "Capture"


    Your words are the blanket
    That keeps me warm
    When the night is cold enough to break me

    It is then that I can trust
    In celebration of the air we breathe
    We place all regrets aside

    To capture this moment
    Is to let go of the last
    Love takes hold
    How beautiful heaven must be

    The sand beneath my feet
    Is an echo of your grace
    It is then that I can trust in you
    To see beyond beauty, skin deep

    Trust in love

    Love takes hold
    How beautiful heaven must be
