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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
10.
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
