Track Name: Without the Sun
How quick we walk into the fire
A light so bright I can't see myself
We watch as the world ignites around us
The sun goes out and this world turns to dust

I can't feel what's come before
A distant past left far away
A light so bright the colors bleed through
I turn away but still I see it

But do you see me?

A shadow scrapes the sky
But I can't see it
A moment lost in time
A time to be free
To change and be changed
A wave on the sand
To find my own light
To live this lfe as mine

I see it hanging in the sky
So close to touch but so far away
A distant star that's calling me back home
Without the sun when will the morning come?

Where were you when the lights went out?
Were you scared?
Will you ever be the same?

I see it hanging in the sky
So close to touch but so far away
A distant star that's calling me back home
Without the sun when will the morning come?

Across all time
I thought I could see
Dawn of a new day
Written in the sky
The sun is gone
And it's far too dark now
My eyes are open
But I can't see the light

I can't feel what's come before
I see it hanging in the sky
A distant past left so far away
So close to touch but so far away
The light so bright the colors bleed through
A distant star that's calling me back home
I turn away but I can't see it
Without the sun when will the morning come?
Track Name: Jericho
I've seen the things outside, they're still coming
and I've seen the things outside, this won't end well my friend.

And I've seen the things inside that started this conflict
and I've seen the things inside, they're still eating at you
and I've seen the war outside, your war outside.

Our hate bred hate and now we wallow in this place and wait.
Outside our heroes and our walls are falling down.

And I've seen the ones inside who spread distrust and fear.
And I've seen you sit there laughing, eat and drink your lies.
Just outside, the screams of hunger, want and war still sound.
And I've seen, you sit there as all reason drowns.

Our hate bred hate and now we wallow in this place and wait.
Outside our heroes and our walls are falling down.
Our hate bred hate and now we make our wars and await our fate
Inside our arrogance and wealth will drag us down.

I hope it's not too late
I pray it's not too late

I can hear them just outside
they've come for what's been denied to them.
I can feel this peace subside.
This won't end well. This won't end well my friend.
Track Name: The River
The water hides a tide
A force so strong it pulls me in
Dragged down to the depths
Eroded lives are left behind

The river guides the flow
A calm belies the storm ahead
The waters open up
The current washes me away

Water wears the stone
The rock begins to crack.
Can it make a mountain move?
The river guides the flow

One stone is cast
One life is cast away
From the deepest of depths
The waters remain

Drowning and healing
Let the waters flow over me
Flow with the current
The river guides the flow
Wash away my past
Leave me with what once has been
Rebirth comes in waves
The crack becomes a break

The river runs so deep
It cuts through what we are

Behind each ripple a lifetime
With those tides we live and die

Rain falls down
And washes me away
Leaves another man
To face these floods
Without my past
The river pulls me down
To the bed below
Where I am free
To rise again
Bathed in my blood
I open my eyes
And alone I stand

Waters flow to the mountain
To taste the cold of the rock inside
Eroding its center down

Slowly breaking its will
The tide ebbs and wanes
The water forgives all
Washes away our sins
The river guides the flow
Track Name: Hubris
Sitting here, waiting in the silence,
listening to rain fall on my hope.
In your eyes a light defies the violence.
Take my hand, I'll show you
all I know.

I believe that there will be
a new day, the door stays closed you
haven't come... but this just can't be?!
I believe that you, with me, will
renew the world with fire.
I can see we'll set you free
but still the door stays

closed

the fire still throws the shadows
off the naked walls.
I know our trust will grow
before the venom takes control.
The sickness still grows outside and soon
we'll all be consumed.
Climb into my mind,
take my hand and we'll set you free.

We'll watch the world renew itself
in flame...

until there's no one left to blame.
