Track Name: It Was Something Great
Well I know you’ve waited for a long time
But don’t you try to hide it
Because I see the look in your eyes
Are you surprised that it’s now all over and done with
And it can not come with you where you’re going

Oh, won't you to let it go
We are the ones awake who will find home
Never too late for finding hope
We are the ones awake who will find home

What color is the sky when you look back one last time
Just let the dust settle in its place
If you erase this from your mind
You’ll survive because you’re free

Oh, won't you to let it go
We are the ones awake who will find home
Never too late for finding hope
We are the ones awake who will find home

This road is long
I will find my way back home
This pain is bitter sweet
But my feet keep walking on this road that’s long
I will find my way back home
This pain is bitter sweet
But my feet keep moving on

Oh, won't you to let it go
(This is who we are)
We are the ones awake who will find home
Never too late for finding hope
(This is who we are)
We are the ones awake who will find home
Track Name: Pick Up The Pieces
We've got this interesting case
Where neither one of us wants to
Take our hands off the other
But I knew better

So pick up the pieces
When we come crashing down
From this lofty dream that we’ve created
You'll rip me down from your touch

You said you had this okay
Well everything that you wanted
Takes me back to the beginning
Because we knew better
What if things don’t align
Well it’s not yours and it’s not mine

So pick up the pieces
When we come crashing down
From this lofty dream that we’ve created
You’ll rip me down from your touch

So pick up the pieces
When we come crashing down
From this lofty dream that we’ve created
You'll hold me down and I’ll say no every time

Is this really what you wanted
I said it is not right
But I will hold on till we’ve fallen
The promise was I'd stay here
(Every time, I say no, Every time, Let me go)
Is this really what you wanted
I said I am not new here
Everything is as I’ve called it
The promise was to stay clear
Track Name: The Seafarer
In the wake of a minor setback
Holding on for a major comeback
Rolling thunder
Thoughts of going under

Everything held close to me
The current tries to rip away
What more can it do
Nothing’s left here to take
Fumbling with your words
Am I stuck here to stay
Guide me out of this dangerous place

And if you hear me now
I’m calling for you
Please don’t let me drown

I’m not shipwrecked
But these waves are crashing
We’re losing the vessel
All hands on deck
(Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!)
Was this ever mine
I’ve got to ask it
The question still remains
Where’s my catharsis

Keeping my head above the waterline
I feel her turn, turn below
Movement reminds me that the ocean’s hungry
I take a breath and keep on fighting

So come at us now with the tensions rising
We will claw our way out
Because this rain is blinding
But it’s never enough to take us all the way down
(No, it’s never enough!)

I’m not shipwrecked
But these waves are crashing
We’re losing the vessel
All hands on deck
(Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!)
Was this ever mine
I’ve got to ask it
The question still remains
Where’s my catharsis

It’s plain to see I’ve been feeling the weight
I’ve been a little resistant
Even within is defiant
Charge forward then
Find the storm cloud’s end
(Find the end)

I’m not shipwrecked
But these waves are crashing
We’re losing the vessel
All hands on deck
(Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!)
Was this ever mine
I’ve got to ask it
The question still remains
Where’s my catharsis

Charge for it
(I’m for it, I’m for it, I’m holding on)
