Track Name: Pardon Me
I fell into a puddle
Laced with grass
Not through with causing trouble
Why would you ask?
I held the shovel
Swim out into a field
To fill a grave
Under the covers I will
Sleep with the snake
We danced in shady lanes

Oh can you pardon me
All the fires I lit are burning in the sea
Oh can you set me free
To save myself and honor this belief

Been feeling suicidal
Ain't that a shame
It's everybody's bible
We right the page
And dim the lights for
A selfish meditation
It's all the same
The fruit of being patient
Is being lame
I don't know nothing

Oh can you pardon me
All the fires I lit are burning in the sea
Oh can you set me free
To save myself and honor this belief

Feeling like a dead man walking
Talking when I shouldn't be talking
Waiting on the world to punish me
Look into you like my lover
When I got no other brothers
Hoping that your grin will pardon me

I stumbled to the crossroads
I held the stake
Went with the partner I know
We looked the same
I did not know his name
Put fires on the wheels
And burning fast
Stop talking hold the treasure
It never lasts
Till you're a goner

Oh can you pardon me
All the fires I lit are burning in the sea
Oh can you set me free
To save myself and honor this belief

Feeling like a dead man walking
Talking when I shouldn't be talking
Waiting on the world to punish me
Look into you like my lover
When I got no other brothers
Hoping that your grin will pardon me

I don't know nothing
Track Name: Lo and Behold
(I'm God, you God, we God, you know...)
(I'm glad you know)

Lo and behold...

I met God
Just the other day
On a desert plane
Waiting for the mass
Sat right next to me
In his white sox
And purple sash
He said "Son, don't you rag on me
When you're yearning to be free
Leave your baggage
On the floor behind you."

And then he looked into the sky
"Don't you know the reason why
Everybody's blue for a minute, yeah?
Even when it seems unfair to be
Violent to believe
In the challenge you will learn
To feel alive."

Sing it out now
Set me free, set me free
Let me be what I was born to come to be
Set me free, set me free
Let me be what I would want to come to be

In the race to the Golden Gate
To the Golden Gate

Lo and behold
I was shown in due time
Lo and behold
Now I know the source of all my light

Good sir matter fact
It occurred to me
Wrote a bedtime prayer
For my destiny see
Sometimes lately seems
I been losing my faith
I look back to the path
Hope for some direction
Peace with the past
But I'm tired from testing
When will I be free from all this pain

He said "It's right in the night
For you to question
Work hard to see
Then you learn the lesson
All the dark energy
Will fade in your light.
It's an inside job
That's right your journey
Flow with the low
And you will be learning
Sift through all the smoke
And the mirrors of your mind
People try to look for me
But it is the self that they are seeking
Even God himself
Was once just a man in the race
To the golden gate

Don't make me wait
In the race to the Golden Gate

Lo and behold
I was shown in due time
Lo and behold
Now I know the source of all my light

To find my light
Track Name: I Need You
You’re fine like a wine
But by no design
Your spirit’s divine
When it’s pouring over me
I tell you one time
Love of mine
You are at the center of my life
And it shows
I just want to let you know
How much I need you

By humming a tune
I got straight from you
Singing of the sunshine of your soul
That has shed so much light on me
Through the darkest age
The hallways of my mind
You were there to hold me
When my body was too tired
Too weak to stand on my own feet
Wishing you could help me
I need you

What can I do
What can I say to you
To let you know that
My whole life has changed
Because I know your name

You're fine like a wine
I tell you one time
You are at the center of my life and it shows
I just want to let you know
Track Name: Stay Here With Me
(LYRICS)

Hang on
Hold on me
Stay strong
Please don't leave

Blood in your eye
Demon disguised in wait
I couldn't fight
If I would run away

In the dark corners of your mind
In the dark of the midnight
Stay here with me

Hang on
Hold on to me
Stay strong
Please don't leave

Sweat on your brow
Angels surrounding me
Here with you now
Stray from the sound of sleep

In the dark corners of your mind
In the dark of the midnight
Stay here with me

Stay here with me ...

Holding you down
Hoping aloud to pray
Dew on your lips
Dawning the light of day

In the dark corners of your mind
In the dark of the midnight
In the dark tunnel I'm the light
In the dark the end is near in sight
If you stay here with me

Stay here with me
Stay ...
Track Name: Glory
Passing ships in the night
Flying far from the fight
They don't know
What they're missing

Glory come and find me
I'll be patiently waiting

Paradise is a lie, it's alive
Floating beyond the sky
You won't know
If you seek it

Glory come and find me
I'll be patiently waiting
Glory come ignite me
I'll be patiently waiting
Patiently waiting
Pacing
Waiting here

Ceasing daily the wise
Sailing inward to die
We have sought
Our beginning

Glory come and find me
I'll be patiently waiting
Glory come ignite me
I'll be patiently waiting
Patiently waiting
Pacing
Waiting here
Track Name: Bayou
Way down in the bayou
Where I got my name
Way down in the bayou
Where I got my name

I been a lost, lost man
In the forgotten sand of time
And the good lord gone come
And take me home

Way down in the muck and the dirt
Way down in the bayou
Where I got my name
Said I got my main, main name

I been a lost, lost man
In the forgotten sands of time
And the good lord gone come
And take me home

'Gon take me home
To the land of snow
With the clouds below

He take me to the promised land
Cause I been waiting so long
Take me to the promised land
Cause I been waiting so long

In the bayou where I'm growing old
Good lord gone come and take me home

All my past regrets
Demons sent
From the darker side
And they're with me
When I ride
All the angels sent
From heaven's pen
Would lay me down
By the riverside
Knowing that

I been a lost, lost man
In the forgotten sand of time
And the good lord gone come
And take me home

'Gon take me home
To the land of snow
With the clouds below

He take me to the promised land
Cause I been waiting so long
He take me to the promised land
Cause I been waiting so long

In the bayou where I'm growing old
Good lord gone come and take me home

Way down
Way down
Down, down, down
Where I got my name
Track Name: Care
(LYRICS)
How I wanted to protect you
In truth I never had the right
How I wanted to respect you
But fell into a web of lies
I pretend that you are mine

But I didn’t need you, I didn’t need you, I didn’t care
I wanted to feel it, wanted to see it, so I could be there
But I didn’t need you, I didn’t need you, I didn’t care
I didn’t care, I didn’t care …

How I tried my best to love you
But shadows don’t become the light
Burning holes inside your mind

Cause I didn’t need you, I didn’t need you, I didn’t care
I wanted to feel it, wanted to see it, so I could be there
But I didn’t need you, I didn’t need you, I didn’t care
I didn’t care, I didn’t care …

Care…

I didn’t need you, I didn’t need you, I didn’t care
I wanted to feel it, wanted to see it, so I could be there
But I didn’t need you, I didn’t need you, I didn’t care
I didn’t care, I didn’t care …
Track Name: Heaven Don't Deny It
What if my fight was wrong
What if I saw the sun
And I was blinded

What is the will to be strong
Where was the time
To move on
When I was so
Simple minded

I don't know where this road gonna go
But I like it
Everyone wants to lighten their load
So they try it
And heaven don't deny it

What if my sight was long
What if I saw the cliff
And went and jumped it
What if it's in my mind
What if I could decide

I don't know where this road gonna go
But I like it
Everyone wants to lighten their load
So they try it
And heaven don't deny it
Track Name: Tides
Watch the tides roll in
Feel the summer wind
Every morning when I wake up tired
I could be yawning
There’s a feeling welling up inside
Calling me to jump in

Got me singing ahh…

Watch the clouds roll in
Know the sun’s above them
And every afternoon I sit outside
It could be raining
There’s a tear welling in my eye
Telling me it’s sacred

Got me singing ahh…

The tides...

Why must it be so hard
Just to stay alive
Just to be alive
Why must I try so hard
Just to survive
Is this really life’s meaning?

Watch the stars begin
See the darkness dim
Every evening when I’m cold and tired
I’m getting older
But the journeys in me have retired
This weight upon my shoulders

Got me singing ahh...

Why must it be so hard
Just to stay alive
Just to be alive
Why must I try so hard
Just to survive
Is this really life’s meaning?

The tides...
Track Name: Fallen Leaves
Oh I know
Where I should not go
But I try to fight
Freedom's race
At a fatal pace
So I run
From the starting gun

All my friends
All my family
Left behind
In due time
It's hard to see
Where my fate will lead
To my death
My last breath

Fallen leaves
Won't let them bother me
While I'm alive
I was born to be
A bit of everything
Before I die
Throw the fallen leaves aside

Death's sweet call
Like a waterfall
But where does it end
And who am I then?
A memory
A forgotten tree
Before the fall
And I hear the wind a calling

Fallen leaves
Won't let them bother me
While I'm alive
I was born to be
A bit of everything
Before I die
Throw the fallen leaves aside

An old back yard
Overgrown and hard
This is my grave
I have been saved
The man that was
Is no longer cause
I'm not the same
I have been changed

Fallen leaves
Won't let them bother me
While I'm alive
I was born to be
A bit of everything
Before I die
Throw the fallen leaves aside

Gotta straighten my roots
Live in the truth
Or I will lose
Gotta open my eyes
Don't hold on too tight
Track Name: Spring Is Here (bonus track)
Leaves and flowers blossoming
Time again is here for spring
And I feel it in the air
Sun is peaking out her grin
And I'm gonna soak it in
Gonna get back to the light

Spring is here again...

Letting out the hate and pain
Pent up in my heart and brain
All the months amongst the gray
Setting up a new intent
Becoming everything I've meant
Gonna truly manifest
And if I do desire to
I could walk another mile in these shoes
I could change my path
Make a break from my dark past
If I want to

Spring is here again...

Why did I not see the way out
Of the prison that I build
Around myself
My mind is too hard
Too cold to be mine
Can I just let it go?

Spring is here again...
