Track Name: Can't You See?
I see I see / The story of you and me / In the dark sea / Between the poor and oh so wealthy / I know I know / We come from different places oh though / We know we know / There's more to a blizzard than lots of snow / [Chorus] Can't you see / What you mean to me / Incomplete, without truth / Is my life without you / Look at me, / I could never try to leave / You could make it outta here / Come on take me with you dear / I need I need / The grace you effortlessly carry / And the world needs / Your words of wisdom that we should heed / I know I know / We come from different sides of the globe / Oh though we know / Behind every good story there is woe. / [Chorus] / [Bridge] Hey you, sweetheart / Common turn me right around / Hey you, sweetheart / Lift my feet right off the ground / Hey you sweetheart / Turned my world upside down / Hey you sweetheart / This is what I have to say dear, / [Chorus] / [Chorus and Bridge mix]
Track Name: Wasted In My Eyes
I can hear him crying / Crying out to me / I can hear him saying / Please oh please / Oh lord, why now? why me? / Three more days, he'd be back cross the sea, to me / Oh lord, why now? Why me? / Where is your endless mercy to be? / When he's far, when he's far across the sea? / I can hear her crying / Crying over him / Like his heart’s not beating / Breath so still / Oh lord why now? why me? / Three more days and he'd be happy to see her and me / Oh lord is this what you call justice? / To have a family gathering with one not there / Oh yes, oh yes it's not fair / You saw me crying / Paralyzed by fear / But you just left me / It's cold out here / Oh lord why now? Why me? / Why's my son come home from tour without a papa to see? / Oh lord they've cried and they've cried / But their tears will not bring me alive / But their tears fall wasted in my eyes
Track Name: Alright
I see you listening / I see you're here for me / What you're up to dear is / No secret to me / I hear your silent pleas / Asking me not to leave / What you cannot see is / Its not up to me / And when I think / About what we did / Oh it makes me think / Oh it makes me think / About where we / Should be right now / And how happy we / Could've been by now / Oh its okay / Oh its alright / Because I left to / Fight the good fight / [Chorus] Now I know all you want to be is all- / Now I know all you ever wanted to be was alright / Alright All- / Now I know all you want to be is all- / Now I know all you ever wanted to be was alright / Alright Alright / I find it upsetting / For you to talk to me / You have to get hyped up / On pills for ADD / Your life is in the trash / I almost followed you / Into your self dug pit / That is full of glue / Please don't resent me ‘cause / I couldn't fix you / You will be alright / And I'll be alright too / [Chorus] / I see you listening / I see you're here for me / What you're up to dear is / No secret to me / I hear your silent pleas / Asking me not to leave / What you cannot see is / Its not up to me

Track Name: Dawn
Like a bird with a broken wing / I am grounded in a teal colored sling / Ruffled feathers and the smell of spring / Trapped in a cage without a song to sing / [Chorus] The sun comes up / The mornin's met / But I am not strong enough yet / The sun comes up / The mornin's met / But I am not strong enough yet / Fell from the nest, when I was just young / Learned to grow up without a mother's hug / Learned to bear my teeth and hunt all on my own / It's hard to look back and see how much I've grown / [Chorus] / My back is burned / The color red / But I will still get out of bed / My hands are sore / My knuckles rough / But I will still put on my gloves / [Chorus] / The sun comes up / The mornin’s met / But I am not strong enough yet / The night is here / The day is gone / I know I'm not the only one.
Track Name: Without A Plan
Look down / What's at your feet? / Is it a path? / Someone elses? / Look up / Now is your chance / Start your own life / Tread your own path / [Chorus Pt 1] Dance until the night is done / Sing until your song is sung / Write until your novel ends / Take on life without a plan / Look down / What's on your feet? / Are those your shoes? / Or your fathers? / Look up / Life's a shoe store / There's a sale / First pair's free / [Chorus Pt 1] / [Chorus Pt 2] We can't predict the future / But the present is in our hands / We can't predict the future / But lets see how our story ends / [Bridge] Oh how it ends, is up to you. / Take the first step, the rest will follow suit. / Oh how it ends, is not set in stone / Take the first step, make your new home / [Chorus Pt 1] / [Chorus Pt 1 and Bridge Mix] / [Chorus Pt 2] / Look down / What's at your feet? / Is it a path? / Someone elses?

After thought that's what my life is made of / After shave just playin' the consumer game / Afternoon is when I get out of bed / After all of this I realize that I am / [Chorus] Sitting alone, no place to call my own / Sitting alone oh / Sitting alone, no place to call my own / Sitting alone oh / I sit around and watch t.v. all day / I have no friends or any games to play / I have no one tell me that my life is goin’ to shit / I realize that I am / [Chorus] / I'm here alone ‘cause I have no one / To play with me.

Life takes an unfamiliar road, from tread path to fresh snow / I'm stuck in my own tracks in my own ruts / Life breaks all the rules from sidewalk to kept grass / Life says lets go for a walk, but the sign says keep off / [Chorus] May you, shelter me / From my misery / May you, shelter me / From my misery / I don't care who you are we all need help / This isn't a cry to god or a farewell / It doesn't matter who you are, you'll need someone to see you through / It doesn't matter who we pick as long as they'll be there / It doesn't matter who you are you'll need someone to see you through / It doesn't matter who we pick as long as they'll be there / [Chorus]
