Track Name: Welcome Home
Faith in yourself,
Through time you will find,
The thought that you are more than words,
the sound you can make,
the very place in time

the very creation of you means more than
anything could define

hope to move your day forward
when all seems lost
believe in yourself
to do more than you ever knew
trust in your heart
listen for wisdom that you hold

you are beauty
you are simply that
you are
life
Track Name: Beneath The Open Sky
I sit alone and find you
a star so bright that you
you bring warmth to all life
the sun you are

your rise and fall paints the land into beauty
you are beautiful and you
the sun you are

It's indescribable how the simple things you do
make me live
my sun you are

I lay in awe at you
it is you that comforts every breath I take
my sun you are

the sun you are
my star you are

the sun you are
my star you are

my love you are
my sun and stars

the sun you are
my star you are

the sun you are
my star you are

the sun you are
my star you are

my star you are
my star you are
my star you are
my star you are
Track Name: Constants
not even years can separate us
the things we create still bring us together
we are true friends
speaking our lives through sound
not even years can pull us apart
we are friends
true love is here
the things we do
find us

never too far
never absent
never a time

never too far
never absent
never a time

not even years can pull us apart
speak our lives through our sound

never too far
never absent
never a time
Track Name: Stand Up Taller
the sunrise in my eyes and the past yeah it seems gone
whether it's a day of sun or clouds yeah i don't mind
the past days have led me through years to this point

now i will define my days
not by my failures but by the way
this world has shown me a great piece of myself and now i'll live for everyday

with all of my scars i have learned to fight
for every hit i simply learned to stand up taller
to stand up taller

now i will define my day not by my failures but by the way
this world has shown me a great piece of myself and now i'll live for everyday

we find ourselves in the places we never thought we would
we find true meaning, it's here we shall grow
we never thought we would
we are the definition of our futures

now i will define my day not by my failures but by the way
this world has shown me a great piece of myself and now i'll live for everyday.
Track Name: Flight
flight shall never be a thing that we fear
we feel wind beneath wings
as we soar
Track Name: Circles
we exist in circles
here and hear
we exist in circles
between us
time spent
so drop your hands
and raise your eyes

we will see through this
we will find our way
Track Name: Discovery
there comes times where we question:
what is the purpose of this all?
Is there meaning through the stars?
Surely, there must be?

if we choose to accept that nothing else exists
we choose to defeat a piece of ourselves a part that makes us so beautiful

when we journey to the unknown
we learn so much about ourselves
always discovering things that never once seemed possible

if we choose to accept that nothing else exists
we choose to defeat a piece of ourselves a part that makes us so beautiful

no, there must be more to this
we are meant to know
we will never give up
we will never lose hope
we will live our days old
we will find ourselves!
Track Name: Sound Your Name
life stands still trying to view the things i've done
and where they've placed.

i'll close my eyes and sound for you
i'll close my eyes and sound for you
...sound for you

I stand here attempting to define
the path life's given, where i might decline
but I won't!

I'll close my eyes and sound for you
i'll close my eyes and sound for you
....sound for you

the life i've been given
the time i've had
the days ahead
my life ahead

Our days are too short,
so take what you are
find your day
live your day!
Track Name: The Morning
so we turned to notice
and our hearts were filled with love, with elation
and there we stood in the sight of something so beautiful

to watch growth before,
before it was before our eyes,
yeah

it was the morning
and we cast our thoughts upon the rays over the hills
light pierced everything and we found something here
not sure of what it was...

but it was the morning
the beginning of something so new...
and nothing else mattered.

it was the morning
Track Name: Freedom Summer
you’ve chained your mind to what others say
so why not change you view?

you’ve traded your life for one they’ve paved
you need to become you!

these are your days
use them to become
to become you

not so far away is the time you will feel no weight
not so far away is the place you will find yourself
and that’s all that matters

the things you need you will find in your heart
and they will bring you
to the places you are free
it is here you will see

not so far away is the time you will feel no weight
not so far away is the place you will find yourself
and that’s all that matters

you tried to change the things you couldn’t
now it’s time to find the things that matter
it’s time to find out who you truly are
now its time to unchain your mind and grow

not so far away is the place you will feel no weight
not so far away is the place you will find yourself
and that’s all that matters

you tried to change the things you couldn’t
now it’s time to find the things that matter
it’s time to find out who you truly are
now it’s time to unchain your mind and grow!
Track Name: Together We Can Grow
you and I drift onwards
together and further
we can grow
we will see
tearing through time
moving into something

At times we see the causes but not the effects
we hurt, but we do harm

we believe yes we have our faults
though we are flawed
together we can grow

together we can grow....
Track Name: Evolve
faith in yourself,
my sun you are
never absent
we are the definition
we feel wind
we will find our way
discovering things
so take what you are

and so we took all our ways
it was the choice we had to make
to live our days
and so we looked at all the things
not that we lost
but at what we might gain

before our eyes
unchain your mind
together we can grow

and so it is that all our days
will be remembered by the growth that we made.
