Track Name: Morning Skies
MORNING SKIES

It's creeping in the morning light
A time to meditate
To tinker with a ticking clock
Before it gets too late

Morning skies make it clear and real
Morning skies feel alive

Been knocking on an open door
And waiting to come in
And you'd been waiting patiently
To let the love begin

Morning skies make it clear and real
Morning skies feel alive

Lift me up and stretch me out
Clean me up and pray
Sing to me your sweetest song
Oh won't you come and play

Morning skies make it clear and real
Morning skies taught me how to feel
Morning skies feel alive
Track Name: Come Tear Me Apart
Way out at sea
Rocking in the creases of the ride
Held true, by you
Drifting to the place where I now lie

Come tear me apart
Come tear me apart
Come tear me apart dear
Come and take and gently break my heart

Unsure, unclear
Prey to all the savages and lies
Made new, by you
Bathing in this unforeseen suppose

Come tear me apart
Come tear me apart
Come tear me apart dear
Come and take and gently break my heart
Come and take and gently break my heart
Track Name: Put Them in a Box
Lines of men of minds and dreams
Are lost between the poppy seeds
Paint a picture pink and gold
Of all those stories left untold

Break up all those dreams
We'll put them in a box for us to hold
Been picking at the seams
And sewing many stitches to turn pictures of our wishes into gold
As the thunder breaks and the rain is close behind
You are always on my mind

Paper skin so soft and still
Let me give my world to you
Let me kiss your salty cheeks and hold you up when you are weak

Break up all those dreams
We'll put them in a box for us to hold
Been picking at the seams
And sewing many stitches to turn pictures of our wishes into gold
As the thunder breaks and the rain is close behind
You are always on my mind
You are always on my mind
Track Name: See it when you look away
How many mothers have to lose their baby child
How many others have been cast into the wild I hope we see it
See it when we look away

How many men will throw themselves out into wars
How many people will be washed upon those shores
I hope we see it
See it when we look away

In desperate times
To see these lives expire
To the darkest falls
The darkest of all hours
We'll see it now
We'll see it, when we come and let the dark in, yes we'll see it now.

How many precious harmless spirits been erased
How many peaceful people lost to hates disease
I hope we see it
See it when we look away

In desperate times
To see these lives expire
To the darkest falls
The darkest of all hour
We'll see it now
We'll see it, when we come and let the dark in, yes we'll see it now.
Track Name: Healing Now
It took me a while to carefully look
Examine the pages of this unfolding book
But I didn't see it
The trees for the wood
The earth for the landscape
The bad for the good
I'm healing now
I'm healing now
I'm healing now my friend

And though I've been scared
To see what's inside
I start to surrender to the strength of the tide
The truth that suspends me
The truth that resides
The love that will heal me
While the con-artists hide
I'm healing now
I'm healing now
I'm healing now my friend

So come and find me
I'm up on my hill
A love fool for tender
A teacup to fill
I'm healing now
I'm healing now
I'm healing now my friend
Track Name: The Stones You Throw
In sorrow I'll sing a song for you
In sorrow survey the things you do
Cos you've been displaying your facade
In sorrow for your own lonely heart

Cos you can't see past the stones you throw.
Cos in this world you walk alone
Cos you can't see past the stones you throw
Cos in this world you walk alone

Emotion, you cruise around the street
Unsettled it's tripping on your feet
And angry at all you've had to bare
Unable to think that they might care

Cos you can't see past the stones you throw.
Cos in this world you walk alone
Cos you can't see past the stones you throw
Cos in this world you walk alone
Cos in this world you walk alone
Cos in this world you walk alone
Track Name: Naked on My Own
NAKED ON MY OWN

As my eyelids open up
As the notion brings it home
I've been fighting with my fears
I've been brawling on my own
Waging wars to reignite all that love has overthrown
And we all fall down

So come grab my open hand
Drag me through the darkest rain
Through this harsh and brutal land
Through this unforgiving pain
Take my tired and thinning bones
And pull me from my chains
And we all fall down

Cause if be naked on my own
In my crown
I'd be naked on my own
All alone, I'm naked when I know you're not around

So come pull me from this ditch
From this bloodied broken pool
Break me up and flick the switch
Come and ride this stubborn mule
Draw a line to make things right,
Without writing out a rule

Cause if be naked on my own
In my crown
I'd be naked on my own
All alone, I'm naked when I know you're not around
Track Name: Magic Strings
Play it on your magic strings for me
Open up the colours, let the loving flutter out like summer
Played upon the greatest of all trees
Singing to the sky without a breath or reason why
Until the earth begins to cry beneath you

Play it on your magic strings for me
Awakened from your heart,
Like every beat was made for dancing freely
Fading in the layers of memories
Drawing out a line that link the greatest fears and joys together

Hammering out the softest melody
Bending all the pain until its beauty that remains to treasure
Signed and sealed to keep forever
Play it on your magic strings for me
Singing to the sky without a breath or reason why
Until the earth begins to cry beneath you
Track Name: Love On Your Side
I saw you today, with your band of brothers
All twitches and brawn and eager to fight
But you’re not the same
No you’re not like those others
Go fly with love on your side

As night meets the dawn
Like warm melting butter
A welcoming yawn to open the sky
It’s true what they say
You look like your mother
Go fly with love on your side

I’m sorry to say I should have better
I’m sorry to say I could have done more
But you’ll be ok
The worlds yours to discover
Go fly with love on your side
Track Name: Drop Away
So Drop Away
Where you are mine
So Lift me up into this cold and blackened sky
So fall in deep Into the tides
To love me more than I could ever even try

This glowing lamp
This open room
It heals me gently
Breaking through

So drop away
Till all is quiet
Until the dust and foolish lust at last expired
Don’t borrow grief, ill show you how
Don’t chase the beasts or feaful thoughts in darker hours

This glowing lamp, this open room
It heals me gently breaking through
