Track Name: God of USA
Midnight heart stops, feel the beat of a chopping block
Two days, solstice passed and the beast was alive at last
It's got deaf ears, plight blind, all that matters is the bottom line
It's a creature from the isle left Jekyll now in denial

I'm the guy who writes all the rules
I'm the guy who makes you into fools
I'm the guy who's gonna win, put the congregation in my hand
Till they all say I'm God of the U.S.A

Kept secret passed fast, told us trouble was a thing of the past
Got rich on a lie, spat into liberty's eye
We're here, most blind to the deeds done over time
It's all a scam, they broke trust bailed out bankers put the burden on us

I'm the guy who writes all the rules
I'm the guy who makes you into fools
I'm the guy who's gonna win, put the congregation in my hand
Till they all say I'm God of the U.S.A

If you're feeling they're likely to arrest
Free thinking is something they detest
They right the rules to oppress
Got congress in their hand
They all say "Bow to the God of U.S.A"
Track Name: This Life
Time never stops, moments pass, chances fade away
If you stand on the sideline
With your head in your hand you're bound to miss the game
Take a risk and make mistakes
It's the only path to finding your own way
Wake, open your eyes
Breath in and let go of fear
Wait, it'll be alright
Don't run away, do what you want to do
It's dog eat dog and alpha's don't pity fools
They'll take what they want and leave none for you

Cause in this life living's for today
Cause in this life you've got to seize the day

Fight, don't you flight
Take a risk, rise above adversity
Tread the trough the dead of night
Courage is a beacon that sets us free
Take a risk and make mistakes
It's the only path to finding your own way

Cause in this life living's for today
(Won't fear it, Believe it, I'll live for today)
Cause in this life you've got to seize the day
(Won't fear it, believe it, I'll seize the day)
Track Name: Open Doors
I will be your rock, I'll keep you safe through the storm
Ticking of the clock brings us closer to the shore
When you search inside your heart, you'll find the strength to battle more

Wander through the dark, guiding hand of reason lights the way
Perils haven't stopped, fires protect till dawn of day
If lost in fear you've fought of breaching waters past the bay

Don't fear, keep your mind clear
Take the helm, it's time you steer

Maybe I want this now, maybe things didn't go the way quite how I planned
It's like we're being held back, all these hurdles getting taller now
The space between, eternity

I will be your rock, I'll keep you safe through the storm
Climb higher to the top, rising tide engulfs but don't mourn
For the dreams that we have lost will rise again with open doors

There are objects to get crossed, courage, strength, wisdom keep you sound
Gravity tugs to stop, don't let the burdens drag you down
If you find you just can't walk, then I will pick you up off that ground

Don't fear, keep your mind clear
Take the helm, it's time you steer

Maybe I want this now, maybe things didn't go the way quite how I planned
It's like we're being held back, all these hurdles getting taller now
The space between, eternity

I'll be true to you
Track Name: How We Came to Be
Suddenly noticed everything
The play of light and mood they bring
could have sworn I've been here before

Space/time bent all around
now my memories without a ground
a place so strange but familiar within

No I can't fight this feeling
Swept up in tides
I'm dealing with a strange sense
of drifting through destiny

It was something from my dream
I remember every scene
The never ending melody of intertwining harmony
It was beauty it was light
All my memories back in sight
It's the never ending story of how we came to be

Now I can't even believe my eyes
Coded messages in disguise
directing actions to place me where I need to be

And I arrive in this moment in time
it's placed my body, uprooted my mind
I'm standing right where I need to be

It was something from my dream
I remember every scene
The never ending melody of intertwining harmony
It was beauty it was light
All my memories back in sight
It's the never ending story of how we came to be
Track Name: Don't Fade Away
Sunday lost at the wake for love
Torn apart from foolish mistakes
What memories, lies, words you spoken

What do you think when you're all alone
Still carry me in the background
Don't let me be a fleeting thought
Just another mistake for a story to tell
If your heart still lingers with passion we share

Don't Fade Away

I've been blind to the tears I make
For the lies I've spoken and the pills I take
I fake sincerity, just a mask I wear
And these promises are make without a care
Unaware to the damage I've really done
Chasing after all girls in all good fun
But suprise, open my eyes
The best thing for me was by my side
Loving me from the very start
Never waivering in her uncondional heart
So here I stand a broken man
Asking "let me back into your life again"
Don't let those feelings fade
Don't bury the past we've made
I'm trying to tell you I'm not the same

Don't Fade Away

And I would stand here even if takes forever
I've been waiting for this moment to come
I feel safe here
In this emotion of warmth and of passion
Taking me over

Don't Fade Away
