Track Name: Destiny Weights
It’s a simple system

yet we're plagued by indecision

It seems we've spent more time

debating than it took to fly.


Caught in a boundless prison

cast down by our own derision

What will it take for us to play
like this is not a game?



Though the life that lies in wait

might seem to be too much to take

Know I've strayed for days without 

a way and haven't found my place.


I’ve counted every rhyme and reason

why fate was a waste

and I've paid for my mistakes!



I refuse to be anything but me

To live the calling of my destiny

When we choose to see all we're meant to be

The world it opens for eternity.


I refuse to be anything but me

To live the calling of my destiny

When we choose to see all we're meant to be

The world it opens for eternity!
Track Name: Encumbrance Removed
Destined as fortune's told the keys
we hold within our souls unlock eternity
With the future drawing near its crystal clear
now that its not too late for me.

We've got all we need to have things
as they ought to be, and as I've found
If you've been searching for something
look no further than within, see for yourself!

We've been to hell and back, fallen off track
at times and often followed the deceived
But through it all remaining strong
and now who knows of what wonders we'll conceive.

We've got all we need to have things
as they ought to be, and as I've found
If you've been searching for something
look no further than within, see for yourself!

We've got all we need to have things
as they ought to be, and as I've found
If you've been searching for something
look no further than within, see for yourself!
Track Name: Critical Mass
I look around and am amazed
at all this beauty gone to waste
We spend our days pursuing things we’ll never need.
But if you’re ready to escape
the confines of this gilded age
The truth you’ll find in hiding, fighting to be saved.

We are the future of a knowledge imminent
This life is so much more than what we make of it
There’s nothing we can’t do together, hearts in it
When we’re ready to begin.

What have we learned of these events?
Are we so destined to pretend?
This world is ours to shape and do with what we can.
So when you’re ready to begin
you’ll find your path lies just ahead
Beyond the wreckage of our hopes, our fears and sin.

We are the future of a knowledge imminent
This life is so much more than what we make of it
There’s nothing we can’t do together, hearts in it
When we’re ready to begin.

We are the future of a knowledge imminent
This life is so much more than what we make of it
There’s nothing we can’t do together, hearts in it
When we’re ready to begin.
Track Name: No Accident
We see a world we claim for the wood and not through the trees
often forgetting at times who we're even being
When will we get the answers to the questions that we need?
Who knows if we'll find meaning in anything we read.

We've seen many things in this world that we can't explain
how the lowliest of tyrants grow to be the biggest kings
But in all your losses just as in all your wins
We're there for our own reasons impending our own ends.

And I'd like to see, where you're going to be
What you're going to say when you crawl from the bottom
I'm coming back to me I know things are never really
ever quite close to what they seem
But know, how we view them's the important thing.

You scream at a world that doesn't seem to hear a thing
Well you know I'd like to be the first one to get to see you succeed
Did you ever feel that maybe there's more to it than we think
All those days we spent wasted could've gave us our wings.

And I'd like to see, where you're going to be
What you're going to say when you crawl from the bottom
I'm coming back to me I know things are never really
ever quite close to what they seem
But know, how we view them's the important thing.

And I'd like to see, where you're going to be
What you're going to say when you crawl from the bottom
I'll be coming back to me I know things are never really
ever quite close to what they seem
But know, how we view them's the important thing…
Track Name: Fall Blossoms
Breathe relief another chapter's at an end

Our will it breaks sometimes before it ever bends

On who do you depend when all your enemies are friends?
Just too late to make amends.



Pain and pleasure come in waves

we're not all meant to blame

People are supposed to change

what ever stays the same?
You knew it had to end this way

so on to better days
And as we pursue in haste
who knows what awaits...


I've fought so hard in every way that I could think

It seems that nothing I can do will change a thing

I know that nature never idly took effect

But where do I begin?

What ended once during the fall
blossoms in the spring

And no matter what went on 

I wouldn't change a thing

Why search for signs from God above 

with the whole world waiting?
When you've got something no one does...

This life's too good to waste

And I ain't got time to wait

Know I won't hesitate

Cuz I need you.



Learning from our mistakes

We'll build that great escape

No matter what it takes

I believe you...
Track Name: Somebody's Daughter
Behind those eyes, beneath the skin
when the walls cave in on innocence
Be the light on through her dim

And though I've been such a fool to think
of you as anything but magnificent
Know I'm changing like all things
to make it right again

You know that time will heal your pain
so forget the hate, love ain't a battle to win
But shared from within

You've got to be the most beautiful thing
I've ever seen, a gift to me
To treat with patient caring dignity

Remembering
Every girl's somebody's daughter
Every girl - somebody's daughter

I've witnessed a profound truth
The beauty that surrounds you
You'd bring life to all you knew
You don't fake it like some do
We can make it if we want to
The question is do you?
Track Name: Shavings Carver
Some would soon surely die than be content to live a lie
this world can be a lonely place for those who choose to toe the line.
And every year it feels as time is passing even faster by
the same old things we struggle with kill us just to stay alive.

It’s not what’s easy but what’s right that’s just within our reach
In years a century of honest work can be erased.
What happens when there’s nothing left of your economy?
Will we finally be free?

And so to learn of this decline when every day you’ve wholly strived
only to find your greatest works and treasures soon deprived.
It’s like we’ve spent our lives pretending everything is fine
when in reality we trust the cause of this divide.

It’s not what’s easy but what’s right that’s just within our reach
In years a century of honest work can be erased.
What happens when there’s nothing left of your economy?
Will we finally be free?

Cuz It’s not what’s easy but what’s right that’s just within our reach
In years a century of honest work can be erased.
What happens when there’s nothing left of your economy?
Will we finally be free?
Track Name: Heathen Gods
Forgive me Lord for as I pray I hope your name not to forsake
in asking for your might grace for I have slaved to no estate.
And at night I call your name but nothing seems to ever change
I wonder was it worth the wait; the price I paid, the life I gave.

It’s a sin when not searching for the greater truth within
What more could we ever be without the trials of this journey?
Through it all we’re supposed to have learned of a new approach
Man can only be set free when there’s a change to history.

If you have seen the ways that we’ve been led astray
Maybe you too will take up arms to bring about their end of days.
I’d rather be the Heathen God of my domain
Than living under the confines of a travesty that’s driving me insane!

So as my punishment awaits I live in fear of my mistakes
To overcome a great disgrace we must in turn embrace our fate.
How can a man of faith refuse his quest to educate?
Where will we be when things do change, fighting just to stay the same?

Don’t you know it goes to show we’re killing time on a wasted road
What are we supposed to be in a world that breeds conformity?
Your dark age is all self-made, find God in your own damned way
Break the chains that bind your fate and take the reins to a new escape!

If you have seen the ways that we’ve been led astray
Maybe you too will take up arms to bring about their end of days.
I’d rather be the Heathen God of my domain
Than living under the confines of a travesty that’s driving me insane!

If you have seen the ways that we’ve been led astray
Maybe you too will take up arms to bring about their end of days.
I’d rather be the Heathen God of my domain
Than living under the confines of a travesty that’s driving me insane!
Track Name: Quiet Storm
Unwanted darkest memory
all alone you suffer, through the pain we feel the same.
And though I have all of what it takes
to remind that we could change a moment’s pace.

And if I seem lost to this world
A quiet storm caught in the rain
Though we’re not yet what we long for
Know these tides they’re gonna change.

Untrodden paths we never chase
when we play the victim with no one else to blame.
But in motion, discoveries to make
why fear the unknown when the answers lie in wait?

And if I seem lost to this world
A quiet storm caught in the rain
Though we’re not yet what we long for
Know these tides they’re gonna change.

And though the ones that you so longed for
They played it safe and stood away
When the storm it passes through yours
There’s no way things will not change.
Track Name: Untold Agendas
A mean’s to end all life – Man’s seen his great device
The machines that live our lives – Will seal our own demise

Have we been deceived? The hourglass empties and I’m left conceding defeat
In your hour of need you see the intentions of those you so trust and believe
What’s this world to be when good men are buried to make way for liars and thieves?
And as time proceeds, we’re left with the feeling that freedom is no longer free.

Have you seen the ways things have gotten for us? Is there no other path we can take?
A compromise of fate will only return us to the lawless rule from whence we came
Who can estimate the cost of destruction without having seen it in wake?
So while you keep the faith we’ll be fighting our way just to get the hell out of this place!

Its been watching us knowing our power is growing and wants to inflict misery
Have you seen the ways we’ve been traded our freedoms for some sense of security?
Is this destiny? Our future’s been sold in the name of beleaguered reprieve
And in time we’ll see if we’ve got what it takes to stand up to the powers that be!

So where do we begin? The future looks bleak if we cannot commit to rescind
How does one defend against a whole army of puppeteers pulling the strings?
Why do we pretend the social fabric we all share isn’t wearing too thin?
As we reach the end may God have some mercy one those who choose moral ascent!

Its been watching us knowing our power is growing and wants to inflict misery
Have you seen the ways we’ve been traded our freedoms for some sense of security?
Is this destiny? Our future’s been sold in the name of beleaguered reprieve
And in time we’ll see if we’ve got what it takes to stand up to the powers that be!

Its been watching us knowing our power is growing and wants to inflict misery
Have you seen the ways we’ve been traded our freedoms for some sense of security?
Is this destiny? Our future’s been sold in the name of beleaguered reprieve
And in time we’ll see if we’ve got what it takes to stand up to the powers that be!
Track Name: Sky Burial
A new day in the life, your sun begins so shine
upon a world so filled with promises across the sky.
And as the time goes by, do we so sacrifice
our very livelihood to get the chance to finally fly.
So when the pain subsides, so do we come to find
we’ve got such precious little time we ought to use it wise.
And then with opened eyes, we’ll finally see the light
we are the future through which all things gain eternal flight!

What else is this life but something short of paradise?
I don’t want to waste the time knowing that it’s hard to find
There’s so much left to shine before we say our last goodbyes
to meet back in the sky.

So what will you decide, to stay or run and hide?
You know this world is yours to share and do with as you like.
And though you’ll have to fight sometimes to prove you’re right
could you then find the strength to carry onward through the night?
So when it comes our time, always remembering why
some of the brightest stars they took the longest time to shine.

What else is this life but something short of paradise?
I don’t want to waste the time knowing that it’s hard to find
There’s so much left to shine before we say our last goodbyes
to meet back in the sky.

Cuz what else is this life but something short of paradise?
I don’t want to waste the time knowing that it’s hard to find
There’s so much left to shine before we say our last goodbyes
to meet back in the sky…
