Track Name: Freedom In Death
Not near a God
He was old
Alone with greying hair
Gave not his name
He just spoke
He had something to share
Every day I found him
I listened to his words
And just from the tone in his voice
I could tell he had been through the worst

There is one thing he always told me
Keep your head to the sky
There is something on the horizon

His kindness, his passion
Overruled his past transgression
His light shone through the cracks
The darkness never phased him
He let his scars change him
‘Cause now he knows who is the better man

So I listened to this soul
Who had and lost it all
Wondering how he survived

He said he raged against those
Who stood in his way
He fought for the second try
He said he never went quiet
Into the night
Not until he made it right

Keep your head to the sky!

Blue skies on the...
Horizon!

I only ever asked one question
Why does war divide us?
He said,
If death is our freedom,
Our solace is silence
Track Name: Together
Claims of the weak
Outweighed by the rotten
They will lose no sleep
Whilst we freeze in the cold
We take what we need
Even though what we wanted
Was a place that we could call home

A place that we could call home

Reduced to dirt
Dust in the air
Rise and fall
We met your stare
Raise the flag
Sing together as one
I’ll meet you there at the rising of the sun!

Together we run
To meet the rising sun
Where we will find
Hope...

The huddled masses
Heed the call
If we don’t fight
We get nothing at all!
We don’t move
We stand very still
The silence in the air is enough to kill

Enough to kill

You watched us break
You watched us bleed
You took away what it meant to be free
We won’t forgive
And we will not forget
We were the ones who were oppressed!
Together we run
To meet the rising sun
Where we will find
Hope...

Everyone
Everyone stand up..

Stand up...

Together we run
To meet the rising sun
Where we will find
Hope!

Together!
Track Name: Ocean
The darkest nights have come to pass
These past few months believed to be my last
The thought I held onto with both hands
Were images of the golden sands
How the shore opened to the ocean
Revealing the sun that never sets
The blood red lights bleed into the water
Flowing down a river of no regrets

And the storm will bring the clouds
But don’t think that I will back down

I have come too far to fall back down
And it's way too late to turn back now
I’m soaring
The light that I had within my eyes
Will light again in good health and time
I’m calling
And when the sun lights up the sky
I will sit back, smile and remember why
It's dawning
There could be no light without the dark
I could not appreciate these feelings in my heart
When I was falling
Falling

I cast my rod out into the ocean
Waiting for a fish that will feed me
The day is long and the ocean is deep
It will take time to find a catch to keep
The hope that rests within my smile
Thinking that the wait will be worth the while
But the rain will fall and it always will
And the wind just solidifies the chill

I have come too far to fall back down
And it's way too late to turn back now
I’m soaring
The light that I had within my eyes
Will light again in good health and time
I’m calling
And when the sun lights up the sky
I will sit back, smile and remember why
It's dawning
There could be no light without the dark
I could not appreciate these feelings in my heart
When I was falling
Falling

And the storm gets stronger still
Breaking off pieces and chipping at my will
But the sun will rise again
This night soon will end

I have come too far to fall back down
And it's way too late to turn back now
I’m soaring!
There could be no light without the dark
I could not appreciate these feelings in my heart
When I was...
Falling!

I have come too far to fall back down
And it's way too late to turn back now
I’m soaring!
The light that I had within my eyes
Will light again in good health and time
I’m calling!
And when the sun lights up the sky
I will sit back, smile and remember why
It's dawning!
There could be no light without the dark
I could not appreciate these feelings in my heart
When I was falling
Track Name: Countless Forgotten
Running through the dark
Trying to find the parts left of me
I set off the spark
That tore apart everything
Pulling away debris
Trying to hold onto little things

But I caused this
My mind is out of control
It keeps on screaming these words
It keeps on singing this song!

I am the sickness
I am the problem
I am the downfall
Of countless forgotten

And they fall
Like drops of pouring rain
Never to be seen again
Silence follows the storm
And we can’t
We can’t remember those we’ve lost
Can’t remember those we’ve trusted
They have joined the countless forgotten

The winter came
And blew away my warmth and care
The ashes fell
Down from grace unto my hair
And in the ruins
Below the dirt
I heard you screaming and calling out

I am the sickness
I am the problem
I am the downfall
Of countless forgotten

And they fall
Like drops of pouring rain
Never to be seen again
Silence follows the storm
And we can’t
We can’t remember those we’ve lost
Can’t remember those we’ve trusted
They have joined the countless forgotten
The countless forgotten

And they fall
Like drops of pouring rain
Never to be seen again
Silence follows the storm
And we can’t
We can’t remember those we’ve lost
Can’t remember those we’ve trusted
They have joined the countless forgotten!

And they’re gone
Sickness!
Gone
Problem!
Gone
Downfall!
Gone
Forgotten!
Track Name: Solace In Silence
I watched him fight
For the last time
Hoping he’d pull through
I saw him shake
Cold as ice
I think he always knew

I tried to pull him from the darkness
Hoping he’d follow the drums
But as it got colder
The darkness grew closer
Nothing more could be done

And with his last breath
Looking to someone that wasn’t there he said

Please love, don’t cry
I can make it alright
Look at me one more time
Show me please that beautiful smile
Hush now, it’s fine
Everyone has their time
I’ll meet you where
The ocean ends
And there is nothing but
Blue skies

Merely a man who slipped into the night
Because today is the day he made it right
And I will remember, remember, remember
I will remember, remember, remember!

If death is our freedom
Our solace is silence
So please take me higher
Into the sky
I want to be with him
And some day I will find
Where the sun met your eyes
Upon the horizon
