Track Name: Oh, Lord Of Ages (Part II)
Its a long way down
To the bottom of the darkest holes
Where I can see the things that I've done
With clarity I can't ignore
The sound of consequence and ignorance
Can be so soft
Or silent if you let it

Oh, Lord of ages
My head is a mess
Give me strength to learn this lesson
Grant me the sleep that I long to get
And when I'm at the bottom
How I pray that I will mend
Maybe then I'll stop to see you
There is no growth if there's no rest

Its a long way up
To the point where I can finally breathe
Where I can see t he things that I will become
When I live like life's suppose to be

If I could only get out of my own way.

Oh, Lord of ages
My head is a mess
Give me strength to learn this lesson
Grant me the sleep that I long to get
And when I'm at the bottom
How I pray that I will mend
Maybe then I'll stop to see you
There is no growth if there's no rest

All I ever wanted was a good night's rest

And now I've found
That I'm here for a reason
All of these things I've begun
One day I will complete them

Oh, Lord of ages
My head is a mess
Give me strength to learn this lesson
Grant me the sleep that I long to get
And when I'm at the bottom
How I pray that I will mend
Maybe then I'll stop to see you
There is no growth if there's no rest
Track Name: The Right Reward
I've heard all that you have to say
So stop pretending
And let's let the truth be told
I'm sure you'd put your foot over my neck and press
For the right reward

Does anyone here even appreciate commitment anymore?

I've been used
And you're a mess
And I'd rather resist all your benefits
Then prove I'm a man of pure intent
But you're a beautiful trophy
Nothing more, nothing less

Does anyone here even appreciate commitment anymore?

So cut me open
And hang me out to dry
I've come to find, you're reckless
And I'm bound without forgiveness
Or come and save me
Prove that your life isn't a lie
Maybe I should take my own medicine
And learn to live without your consequence
But either way its too late
We're too late
Either way its too late
But either way its too late
We're too late
Either way its too late
Track Name: The Worth Of Water
I'm surprised at what you give
I expected honesty
But its out of my control
As you could never show all the things you hid away from me
One day we'll find how
To live with things we'd die without.

Because we'll never know
Yeah we will never know
We will never know the worth of water
Till the well runs

This is all on the tip of my tongue
But I'll lay silently
Knowing that one man's wisdom
Is another man's, insincerity
One day we'll find out
The things we've learned about ourselves

Because we'll never know
Yeah we will never know
We will never know the worth of water
Till the well runs dry.

Because we'll never know
Yeah we' will never know
We will never know the worth of water
Till the well runs dry.
Oh God, if we never find the things that we can't live without
How will we ever find ourselves?
Is ignorance still bliss
Is ignorance still bliss or will we run it dry?
Track Name: Bury Your Friends
How can a man so full of love be empty?
And why can't I practice what I preach?
I've come to realize that the things I will accept
I turn around to teach
And that's where the problem lies

I've found the devil in all my friends
And I'm accepted

Here's the simple truth
No one knows you like me
And lately I've been thinking
I've felt all that I've come to believe in
And that's where the problem lies
In my history's extent
Those conversations that we've shared
Mirror my intent
And that's where I've been

That's where I've been
That's where I've been
Lost in my own intent

If we are only as good as the company we keep
Than maybe my honesty leads me to sleep alone
But that's the way I choose to live
Read like a book that's been left wide open
That's the way I choose to live
Transparent and without regret

I've found the devil in all my friends
And I'm accepted
Track Name: In One Ear And Out The Other
Just put me to bed
Cause that's where I always wind up
When I've lost my head
Wondering if I'll help myself
Don't talk too soon
But I'm a problem solver and I'd rather ease your doubts
When you say you need room
Why don't the softest landings help the hardest truths come out?

Who am I
Who am I to have such high demands?
Cause its been useless to expect
For you to give me the things that you don't have

If I'm always the potter, darling
You know you've got to score yourself like clay
I'm not opposed to molding you
But in ways don't you think that we both should change?

Who am I
Who am I to have such high demands?
Cause its been useless to expect
For you to give me the things that you don't have

My human nature hopes that you're burning in hell
While grace speaks my mind that this finds you well
Failure always goes
In one ear and out the other

Who am I
Who am I to have such high demands?
Cause its been useless to expect
For you to give me the things that you don't have
Things that you don't, have
Things that you don't, have
Things that you don't, have
