Track Name: More Than One Way
hail to the darkness, hail to the night
hail to the stars above that are out of sight
hail to the travelers on a lonely road
hail to the grateful for the love that they’ve been shown
hail to the beaten who’ve been down before
hail to the ones above who are not keeping score
hail to the skeptics who are filled with doubt
hail to the unknown, and to those who seek it out

cause there is more than one way
more than just one way
there is more than one way to get where you’re going

a broken home, that is bound to fall
but some would rather have that broken home
than have no home at all
cause i’ve seen the darkness
but now i see the light
and now i see the one’s above
who are shaking in their fright

cause there is more than one way
more than just one way
there is more than one way to get where you’re going
more than one way
more than just one way
there is more than one way to get through the day
Track Name: How Far
If I don’t see her tonight, well that’s alright
But it’s not that I don’t like having her within my sights
Because pain, it comes and goes, but sometimes it likes to stay
So why can’t I be the one to drive all her fears and loneliness away?

Well, the last thing I wanna hear
Is the sound of my own voice
So I called and told her it was her choice
She said the only thing I fear
Is that I’ll go and lose my touch
Even though I wasn’t really expecting much

The wind’s been blowing hard, and lately it’s been awfully cold
And this life of standing still, it sure as hell is getting old
So I’ll say that I’m leaving town just to get a little fresh air
But I know that you’ll change my mind
From the very moment that I get there

I stayed up through the night
As I saw the morning light
Cause I knew that next time might not be for a little while
My heart was racing fast
I wasn’t thinking about the past
Except for how far I came, that made me smile

Except for how far I came, that made me smile
Track Name: Moving On
instrumental
Track Name: Moving Along
I don’t know what is becoming of me
but it’s up on display for the whole world to see
I spend my nights wondering just where I went wrong
and wake up each morning just trying to keep
trying to keep myself
moving along, long, long
along, long, long

yes, I know I’m forgetful but I sure haven’t forgot
the wars that I’ve waged and the battles that I fought
I may say that I’m alright, I may say that I’m fine
but the truth is you’ve taken what is rightfully mine
and it’s not alright, and I won’t let this slide
It’s not alright and I will not let this slide
I will not let this slide
and it’s not alright, and I won’t let this slide

It’s not alright and I will not let this slide
I will not let this slide
Track Name: When The Rain Comes
The season changed, and it shot across the the sky
Like I hadn’t already known
My mind ran off, my eyes are going blind
My legs have long turned to stone
The city breathes, I can feel it in the air
As it comes to me in the night
I didn’t think this would happen all so fast
But I always knew that it might

So when the rain comes
I will welcome it with open arms
What else am I supposed to do?
When the rain comes
I’ll be clean and you’ll be on my mind
Know I’ll be on my way soon

Looking back, this has happened all before
To myself and many people more
I’ve been lost so many times, I’ve crossed a few too many lines
But I’ve always known how to find
My way to what is true
But what is true?

So when the rain comes
I will welcome it with open arms
What else am I supposed to do?
When the rain comes
I’ll be clean and you’ll be on my mind
Know I’ll be on my way soon

Because every sky, and every passing pair of eyes
Will know exactly what I mean
I’ve yet to find the thing that’s keeping us alive
But I do know, there is no in between

So when the rain comes
I will welcome it with open arms
What else am I supposed to do?
When the rain comes
I’ll be clean and you’ll be on my mind
Know I’ll be on my way soon
Know I’ll be on my way soon
Track Name: In The City
I’ve been searching far and wide
For a place my heart could reside
The cars outside are speeding by
But my well is running dry

I swear I saw it once before
But as I did, I walked straight out your door
Into a city so strange to me
The only place that you ever wanted to be

Something wasn’t feeling right
But I still put up a fight
In a city so far from home
I walked the streets alone

By then I knew I lost myself
By then I knew you were too high on the shelf
In the city where I was freed
But I couldn’t make you see
Track Name: Where We Fell
I’ve been floating in a boat, on a river to the sea
you won’t catch up with me, you won’t catch up with me
Well i didn’t pack my bags and I didn’t say goodbye
from now on just hellos, it’s nice to have you at my side
it’s nice to have you here at my side

The intentions that I have, and the company I keep
you say they don’t reflect on me well
When you’re too scared to move
and i’m drifting in and out of sleep
we’re still lying on the ground where we fell

So i’ll start moving in the only direction that I know
I think that there’s a plan, I hope that someday it will show
Everything I have, and everything I’ve seen
they are no longer mine, so you can take them as you please
you can take them as you please

The intentions that I have, and the company I keep
you say they don’t reflect on me well
When you’re too scared to move
and i’m drifting in and out of sleep
we’re still lying on the ground where we fell
lying on the ground where we fell

The things that I know now took their time to get to me
just like everyone in chains must wait their turn to be set free
And the things that I have found weren’t the easiest to see
and they’ll keep you lying on the ground, lying on the ground
lying on the ground
Track Name: I'll Walk
I’ll tell you the truth
I disconnected long before you knew
But I’ve got a plan
To redirect how this one lands

But I’ll walk every day of my life
So I can one day learn to settle down

You believe everything that you hear
And every single word 
Is slowly turning in to your worst fear
You can scream and you can shout
Or you can take it from me
If you want someone to change
All you have to leave them to be

‘Cause I’ll walk every day of my life
Until I am certain that I should settle down
Oh, you can laugh in my face
Or you can lend me your grace
‘Cause there’s a reason
For all this roaming around

I’ve got a plan
To redirect how this one lands
I’ve got a plan
To redirect how this one lands
I wouldn’t be so sure
That you got what you came for
I wouldn’t be so sure
That you got what you came for
I’ve got a plan
I’ve got a plan
I’ve got a plan
Track Name: Like You Mean It
There are worse things than being alone
But you have shattered all my insides
And rattled all my bones
When I looked for what I used to feel
All I found was a song
All else had disappeared
And it sang-

Haunt me like you mean it
And tell me like you’ve seen it
With your own eyes

So I dragged on, it must have been a week
Before I said a single word to acknowledge my defeats
The ground was cold, and my skin was bare
I was told I shouldn’t dig if I already knew what was there
But the voices all got changed, as they said-

Haunt me like you mean it
And tell me like you’ve seen it
With your own eyes
Your own eyes

The room cleared out as you came to me
You were finally the stranger that you had longed to be
You leaned in like you wanted to
And when you did, I think I finally felt your blues
As you said-

Haunt me like you mean it
And tell me like you’ve seen it
With your own eyes
Your own eyes
Your own eyes
Track Name: All That I've Got
Cover me up with whatever you’ve got
It’s more than enough, cause I don’t need a lot
Open your arms, and let your guard down
When you’ve got nothing, to nothing you’re bound

But we all have our ghosts, some more than most
From pillar to post, they stand waiting
Deep in the night, with their grip holding tight
The answers you had are now fading

We came here with nothing, but that’s not how we’ll go
It’s not what you have, it’s what you’ve been shown
So cover me up, I know that it won’t take long
Because all of the right will soon outweigh the wrong

The tears that you’ll cry, at how hard you tried
No idea what this will bring
Deep in the night, when all hope’s out of sight
But you’re hoping that it’s not for nothing

There are a few things I hope that you take to heart
Never speak quickly
And know that I’m never far
And if all that you trusted isn’t all that you thought
I will cover you up with all that I’ve got
I will cover you up with all that I’ve got

All that I’ve got
All that I’ve got
All that I’ve got
All that I’ve got
