Track Name: The Deadly Rapture of Space
Verse 1
In the darkness I am all alone
Yet there is no place I’d rather be
I look down at the world from my new life
My new life in this wondrous galaxy

Pre-Chorus
Now I know
Now I know

Chorus
It’s the deadly (deadly) deadly (deadly)
Rapture of space x2
I begin to fall
Space (take me) space (take me)
Space (take me) space (take me)
HOME

Verse 2
Never found much use for gravity
Since my youth it’s you that I defy
Stuck inside this protecting atmosphere
Now’s my chance to live above the sky

Verse 3
Can’t you see this is where I belong
I don’t need your human company
Emotions have no weight at all up here
And silence is my only loyalty

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge
I’m beginning to see
What this silence has done to me
I am longing to see
This darkness lifted from me

Chorus x2
Track Name: Existance
Verse1
It’s not the sun that shines
Or the night that hides
That proves, your existence

Verse2
It’s not the waves that turn
Or the fire that burns
That’s proves, your existence

Pre-Chorus
I can’t touch it
I can’t see it
I can’t hear it
But it’s taking control


Chorus
You grow in my mind
You only exist in my mind
I’ve made you a home in my mind
I allow you to rule in my mind

Verse1
Verse2
Pre-Chorus
Chorus

Bridge
I see the world open right before
I feel the warmth I see all I could be
I’m looking now I see in the future
Taking control and now you can’t stop me

Chorus
Track Name: When I Give You Control
Verse1
It sounds just like poetry
It sooths my mind like symmetry
When I give you control
When I give you control

Verse2
So small but it guides me to the rocks
So true you are the key to all my locks
When I give you control
When I give you control

Verse3
My words come so naturally
All I say destroys my symmetry
When I give you control
When I give you control

Chorus
I’ve seen all your ways and you can’t stop me now
I know all your ways and you can’t stop me now
Track Name: My Condign
Verse 1
The choices I've made, I never thought the wind would ever change
I just drift along and watch the world unfold
To destruct myself, is the right of my very own
I just give and take to my hearts content

Verse 2
I don't need a lullaby, no dream could ever make me cry
I sleep without a care of what comes in the night
No prayer do I pray, I don't need help to make my way
I will except the end but I will live for today

Chorus
I fight, I ride, by no rules do I abide
I mold, my world, in my hands

Verse 3
Do I regret what I've done, all the ones I've hurt along the way
They are quick to sentence but I am quick to defend
But I can't fight my condign, the punishment fits my crime
Now I sit and wait for my bars to swing wide

Chorus

Bridge
For my crimes I must hang high
To the willow is were my sins have lead me
But on my way to the willow, I saw that another had hung for me
But I am so unworthy, for I was then set free

Chorus 2
I fight, I ride, by no rules did I abide
I mold, my world, in your hands
Track Name: Drive'm
Verse 1
The sun beats down on this long and lonesome trail
Sweat and blood, and our bones are frail
But we never stop, no we keep moving right along
Drive them cattle drive them cattle, never let them stop

Heeyaah!

Verse 2
The storms they come and the storms they go
But we keep pushing that beef right along
Our families anxiously wait for our return
Drive them cattle drive them cattle, never let them stop

Heeyaah!

Verse 3
I know my gal she anxiously waits for my return
Drive them cattle drive them cattle, never let them stop

Heeyaah!

Bridge
Flood waters rise
And night time falls
Flood waters rise
Drive them cattle drive them cattle, never let them stop

Heeyaah!
Track Name: Solomon
Verse 1
The sweat roles down and burns my eyes
My muscles ache but there's fire inside
Give me peace give me rest, from all I know

Verse 2
Fill my mind like Solomon the wise
Mold my heart to flee from lies
Give me peace give me rest, from all I know

Pre-Chorus
I try so hard to control my mind
I talk too much 'cause my heart can't lie
What goes in comes out

Verse 3
The road is rough across the great divide
The weather comes to destroy my pride
Give me peace give me rest, from all I know

Verse 4
The water flows free on the other side
Freedom reigns and breaks my ties
Give me peace give me rest, from all I know

Pre-Chorus

Chorus
Everything is falling, everything I built is falling
Castle on the sand, oceans come to swallow
Take it all from me

Verse 5
Silence gives the wisdom to the fool
hope is lost for a heart so cruel
Give me peace give me rest, from all I know

Pre-Chorus

Chorus
Track Name: The Oncoming Storm
Verse 1
The mountains fall into the sea, at the will of my tongue
The skies they fall down to the earth, at the might of my hand
The Oncoming Storm

Verse 2
Time does fade and space just crawls away, at the will of my hand
And leaders fall with just six words, from the oncoming storm
The Oncoming Storm

Fear the Oncoming Storm

Bridge
Your time will come, your time will come
Your city lies in ruin, at the bottom of the sea
Your time will come, your time will come
Your body lies in ruin, at the bottom of the sea

Your time will come, your time will come
Your city lies in ruin, at the bottom of my feet
Your time will come, your time will come
Your body lies in ruin, at the bottom of my feet
Track Name: Justice
Verse 1
Lying on a train track
Tied up from head to toe
Wondering how I got here
But I know very well I chose the valleys in which I roam

Verse 2
Falling in the saddle
My shadow fills the light of moon
My gun is freed of it's burden
And the consequence burns deep in my side

Chorus
Oh the sun still shines but I don't burn
The wind still blows but here I stand
My debt was paid long ago
From my evil ways I know I must turn
I must turn

Verse 3
My teeth where clenched in my head
As our eyes met in the middle of the street
My gun feels the sweat of my palm
And the thunder follows the shame of my lead

Chorus
