Track Name: Truly Know
Got a new year heading my way
I'm gonna fill it up with what I want to say
Until I truly know

I got better days that I'm hoping on
I've been warn out lately, but still I sing this song
Until I truly know

Until I know why I try
Until I see past these eyes
Until I stop the chatter in my mind
Oh that's when, I'll truly know

I just got back from a long trip
I don't have what it takes to make that final dip
Until I truly know

I'm driving down to see the one I love
She's a gift sent down to me from above
Oh that, I truly know
But others I am not so sure

Until I know why I try
Until I see past these eyes
Until I stop the chatter in my mind
Oh that's when, I'll truly know
Track Name: Callie
Callie, please dry your eyes
Because it's getting late
And I hate to see you cry
Callie, don't mistake the truth
Because we're far away
And I can't be with you
You know love can be a strange thing
Can make you want to forget everything
But Callie, please remember me

Callie, I got the pictures you sent
I took them out of the box
And put them in a frame
I love the one of us in black and white
You know your smile reminds me of the night
When we waited for the sun
But it didn't want to shine

Callie, I know I hurt you
And when I saw you him
Well it hurt me too
We were so young back then (we always talked as friends)
We said we wouldn't let this be the end
But I only pray
We can still be friends (that I'll see you again)
Track Name: Southbound
Well I'm sailing down this lonely road
And I don't know just where I'm gonna go
Because I've been here talking to you
And I've been messed up, this time through and through
I feel this gravel break down under my feet
And as I travel I don't know who I'm gonna meet
And I don't know just where I'm gonna go
I thought I had that figured out a long time ago

Because you'll throw me this ball
And I'll take it all the way
And I will run down you
But I don't know what to say
Because it's southbound heading
Heading my way
And I've seen this road
I've seen this road gone astray
Gone astray
Track Name: Undivided
I seem to be easily pulled away
Thoughts of my own never seem to stay
And my words fall like tumbling rocks
Scattered and dispersed
Never doing what I want is to be undivided
Undivided

Time is laughing at me, I hear it in my head
How are my deeds determined but yet free?
And so I watch this person play a fool
Impulsive and obscene
I react to everything never being undivided
Undivided

And I know, I know that I do it
But I'm so, I'm so clueless
Yes I know, I know that I do it
Yet I'm so, I'm so clueless

Why can't I be
I know I should be
Undivided
Undivided
Track Name: The Gun
Lost in the desert on a coal moon night
And these hands are getting cold
I'm looking for a lady who passed this way
Or so I am told

I took refuge in a storm made cave
That wasn't my own
These stars gaze back at me reminding
That I am too far from home
Too far from home

Tried to run when I saw that gun pointed at my face
These eyes don't wanna see anymore
Tried to hear heartbeat when that music started to play
But my ears were running out the door

I've been tangled in a carpenter's web
I cut my hair to get free
I bought a book from a traveling man
“Don't read it” he said to me

Tear myself inside out
Looking for the holes
So the light may shine onto it
And brighten up this soul

Tried to run when I saw that gun pointed at my face
These eyes don't wanna see anymore
Tried to hear heartbeat when that music started to play
But my ears were running out the door

But my ears are always running out the door
Track Name: Mountain of Grace
How many times have I waited for you
but you never appear
Well maybe my brain is just same as everyone else
and I can never get near

To what I don't know what I'm trying to save
I'm like a stone chipped away from the mountain of grace
But I don't need no sympathy
Because you won't recognize my face
I'm like a stone chipped away from the mountain of grace

Well my luck has run out but I don't mind
I never used it anyway
My time grows thin but that's how it is
In a world where time always stays the same

Close to what I don't know that I'm trying to save
I'm like a stone stripped away from the mountain of grace
But I don't need no sympathy
Because you won't recognize my face
I'm like a stone chipped away from the mountain of grace

But I don't need no sympathy
Because you won't recognize my face
I'm just a stone chipped away from the mountain of grace
I'm just a stone chipped away from the mountain of grace
Track Name: Stick
I wanna leave all of my things out on the road
Because where I'm going I don't need them anymore
I wanna shake the hand of the one who takes it all away
Look him straight in the face and have nothing I need to say

Why do I seem to stick to everything
Except the things part of the light that I used to see?
Why do I hold them so close to me
When I know damn well that it's just a fantasy?

I wanna stand straight up against the wind
And plant my roots deep down within
I wanna break off these chains so I can be free
They've been on so long I've forgot they weren't a part of me

Why do I seem to stick to everything
Except the things part of the that light I used to see?
Why do I hold them so close to me
When I know damn well that it's just a fantasy?

I wanna know without a doubt that you are there
Because if I do, nothing else would compare
I would smile wide and leave it all behind
Because after that, there would be nothing left to find

Why do I seem to stick to everything
Except the things part of the light that I used to see?
Why do I hold them so close to me
When I know damn well that it's just a fantasy?
Track Name: Awake
So we're all supposed to be close
But why are my words so remote
They spill out and then it's too late
I automate myself to become fake

If only I could stay awake
If only I could stay awake
If only I could stay awake

I laugh at this speak repeatedly
We use so many words but don't say a thing
Gotta find the truth that's behind the veil
Gotta keep away this me that is so stale

If only I could stay awake
If only I could stay awake
If only I could stay awake

But sometimes I need to dream
But still I want to see
These reactions I have are not me
Just mirror images of my sleep

Yes sometimes I need to dream
But still I want to see
These reactions I have are not me
Just mirror images of my sleep

If only I could stay awake
If only I could stay awake
If only I could stay awake
Track Name: My Blood
You have been there
All the time for everything
From when I first began
You were there for me

I'm sorry when we fight
Sometimes I'm too proud to cry
But you know me best
I don't need to run
I don't need to hide
We feel the same inside
My life just wouldn't be the same
I hope you know that everyday

Thank you, thank you, thank you my blood
I love you, I love you, I love you my blood

Remember when we were young
How I followed everything you'd done
Now I'm older and I lose my way
But you're always there if I go astray

I'm sorry when we fight
Sometimes I'm too proud to cry
But you know me best
I don't need to run
I don't need to hide
We feel the same inside
My life just wouldn't be the same
I hope you know that everyday

Thank you, thank you, thank you my blood
I love you, I love you, I love you my blood
Track Name: Just One Thing
Take my eyes from me
I don't need them to see
Take my ears from me
Because silence is all I need

The less I lose, the less I gain
More I can't ignore the pain
Take away everything until I am left with
Just one thing

Here's my pride
I give it to you
I don't wanna have it
When I go through

Here's my cane
Take it now
You don't need one
To walk up to the house

The less I lose, the less I gain
More I can't ignore the pain
Take away everything until I am left with
Just one thing

Just one thing
Just one thing
Just one thing
Just one thing

All I see and want to be
All I see and want to be
All I see and want to be
All I see and want to be
Is just one thing

The less I lose, the less I gain
More I can't ignore the pain
Take away everything until I am left with
Just one thing
Track Name: All This Time
I don't have much to give
Just a couple lines like photographs
Which are captured in time

But I'll give it all to you
Just plant the seed and we'll watch it grow
If you say you want me to

Because you've grabbed a hold of me
And all this time I could not see
I've been holding you so close

Like holding on for life
I'm drawn to you I can't explain
Just how I feel inside

If you're crying awake at night
I hope this song helps you through
Because you know that if you fall, well I'll fall too
But we'll never hit the ground
We'll never hit the ground

And when I look at you
No I don't see the girl you see
There's certain light that shines

And it melts this heart I hold
In my hand to give to you
If you say you want me too

If you're crying awake at night
I hope this song helps you through
Because you know that if you fall, well I'll fall too
But we'll never hit the ground
We'll never hit the ground
Track Name: Words
I can only laugh
I can only smile
When you come around I know
You've been troubling me a while

I can never speak
Because if I do
My words play a game with me
They never do what I tell them too

We all do it, am I the only one who sees?
Words fly around but don't mean a thing
And they sting because you are afraid
You think they're something you need

We seldom bloom
Always stay the same
If I'm where I'm supposed to be
I shouldn't complain

I look around
And all I see
People that are never listening
Just like me

We all do it, am I the only one who sees?
Words fly around but don't mean a thing
And they sting because you are afraid
You think they're something you need

But I have become one of them
Never who I thought I am
I have become one of them
Never who I thought I am
I have become one of them
Never who I thought I am

We all do it, am I the only one who sees?
Words fly around but don't mean a thing
And they sting because you are afraid
You think they're something you need
You think there's something you need
There is nothing you need
