Track Name: So Far
i had a dream i was fightin
and ungodly white haired beast
clothed like a peasant so humble
he said come with me try to believe
but dont blame me for strugglin
shouldnt i think in different ways now?

Everything darks for certain
ageing and bound to fall
careless you find yourself sleeping
while your sermon is preached in the hall
forgive me for strugglin
but shouldnt i feel so very different now?

i dont know

wait
wait for the messenger over the hill
hes riding through sunshine
if they wont tell ya i will
hes older than hell
hes not far behind
start a revolt if youve got the time

wait
wait for the messenger over the hill
hes riding through sunshine
if they wont tell ya i will
hes older than hell
hes not far behind
Track Name: This Love
its broken in some kind
these words arent yours to try
no no
and the kings rule
and the followers speak
the same talk and walk around in circles

this love
this love
its not yours
this love
this love
its not yours to find
try and remember the light

the radios curse and the art its all plain
its beautiful but in the back of your brain
its alright
harder to live by the book so it seems
you cant sew your faith like a patch
on your favourite jean jacket

this love
this love
its not yours to find
its not yours to find
now try and remember
try an remember
try to remember the light
lord lord
Track Name: For What It's Worth
mama always told me
use what you got for good
or hes going to cut you down
like johnny said he would

dont listen what they tell you
you got time to spare
sing all those hymns you like
who seems to care?

quit playin nights and sleepin
in all day
quit tryin to buy that kind of love
thats what the beatles say

no thats for real
thats for keeps
for real
no thats for real
thats for keeps
for real

for what its worth
id give it all away
to be with you
to be with you
for what its worth
id give it all away
to be with you
someday

someday
Track Name: All Your Words Are Lies
oh my god
what have you done?
youve passed it all along to the wicked

all your words are lies
are lies
what have you done?

be careful what you dream up
before you go to rest
you might wake up pretending
that youre living in the past

oh my god
just look at what youve done for us
its green and blue
oh and the colour of her eyes

-PIANO-

how come all of you guys
seem to make yourselves invisible
and if i had a word
i dont know what id say at all
Track Name: Every Stone
every stone i found was turned before
every jewel i kept was plastic
every thought i had wasnt mine at all
to own
every working spider loom
how i wish that i could too
a most beautiful noose

i cant tell by the look on your face
it seems like weve been here before
all of these words sound the same
now we stand at the shore that you built
are you sure that you gave it to me?
i cant sing with the lights off
your words don’t sound the same

sometimes it almost seems
youre playing with the wicked
you cant get on than go
but i believe
but i believe
too low sometimes to see
too low sometimes to see
but i believe
too low sometimes to see
Track Name: Old Rooms New Light
old rooms
new light
im so unworthy to drink the wine
but im blessed to be here in this place
3000 miles for a glance of the face
of The Father
The Son
The Holy Ghost

handsome foe
im still here
i may not be standing
but learning to kneel

handsome foe
im still here
i may not be standing
hell teach me to kneel

handsome foe
im still here
i may not be standing
learning to kneel

handsome foe
im still here
i may not be standing
hell teach me to kneel

hell teach me to kneel
