Track Name: The Moment Lost
Cry for whats been lost
cry for whats been broken
cry for all of the lesser things
that a human heart puts their hope in
Don't lose sight of the present
cause the presents what you're holding
and the present is the future in a gift you haven't opened

And the time is now
there's no time like now to seize the moment
cause every moment thats passing
is a moment gone and going
So tell the ones you truly love
you truly love them fast
while the moment lasts before the moments past

Peace be still Peace be still
Track Name: Who Are You Listening To
Who, who, who, who,
who, who, who who
are you listening to
to, to, to, to, to, to, to (x2)

Will they love you like you know I love you
(like you know I love you like I do)
Will they love you even when it hurts to
(even when it hurts to I'll love you)
Will they love you like you know I"ll love you
(like you know I love you like I do)
I'm dying to let you know

Who, who, who, who,
who, who, who who
are you listening to
to, to, to, to, to, to, to (x2)

They will hate you like they hated me love
(if they hated me they will hate you)
Others will receive you in my name
(Name above all names before all names)
The world will hate you like they hated me love
(if they hated me they will hate you)
I died so you could go
Track Name: What Is Truth
Truth, the quality or state of being
Is than just an opinion of what is or isn't true for you
Relativism is the schism of the current culture
blind eye to the knife at truths throat and the circling vultures
Knowledge isn't dependent on just the context given
To say theres absolutely no absolutes is a contradiction
Can truth be known? The skeptics say we'll make mistakes
But to be mistaken means that theres a truth in the first place

In order to make you aware
(so you will know, you will know, you will know)
The greatest truth of all is the love from high made low
(from high made low) x2

Irrationallity is accepted as rational
The sickness with us for ages but recent outbreaks spreading national
Proclaiming equality and freedom for humanity
while believing that a baby is a quantity not an entity
Crying out for justice no foundation for appeal
how can you cry for what is wrong when you deny there's anything real
Freedom is lost not only when taken from you
but when subjected to continuous devastating abuse

In order to make you aware
(so you will know, you will know, you will know)
The greatest truth of all is the love from high made low
(from high made low) x2

Oh sleeper rise up from the dead
A light has dawned to free you from your broken head
(walk in the light, in the light
walk in the light while the light makes visible)
Track Name: Every Day Is A Better Day
You overslept this morning honey thats okay
You can help me make my coffee then we’ll cook pancakes
The sun is shining through the window lighting up your face
I think we’re ready running out the door its time to play

Everyday is a better day if its a day I get to spend with you
Seeing things in a better way I love to learn the beautiful in you

It seems like yesterday I held you as a baby in my arms
so many yesterdays and precious times of beauty now are gone
But darling don’t worry don’t you fret and don’t you fear
We’ve got tomorrow and the present day is already here

Everyday is a better day if its a day I get to spend with you
Seeing things in a better way I love to learn the beautiful in you
Track Name: Sons of Thunder
Sons of thunder, you wrote the wonder
you met the Author, you watched them plunder
Oh you called Him master, He called you brothers
oh the wonder, sons of thunder

Ooooooo - ooooooo.
Ooooooo - ooooooo.

Sons of thunder, saw Him raise the daughter
know no honor, and walk on water
Oh you called Him master, He called you brothers
oh the wonder, sons of thunder

Ooooooo - ooooooo.
Ooooooo - ooooooo.
Track Name: Permission to Feel
You've got permission to feel
what you're feeling isn't wrong
When you've been shown otherwise
it's easier to just hold on

But sometimes what you hold
tightly in your heart
Is made for letting go

Even when you know
that you have been wronged
Wounds that have been made
can still linger on

And what you think you know you know
what you're holding on as real
Is waiting on hold for permission to feel

It doesn't feel easy being easy
being open to show
someone what you're feeling
letting them know (x2)
