Track Name: The Middle of Might
THE MIDDLE OF MIGHT

You are the only one in a cold-hearted war
Stood for the lonely ones only desperate for more

The days of waiting won't pass you by
No one can ever say that you didn't try

The ones you won't let go take a rapturous stance

They know you give your all but they watch in romance

You'll take god notice but you'll never let go
Yours is a holy war and theirs is a dance


The other side is watching you

They wanna see what you think you're gonna do


The troops are building up,
it's one two three four

You never thought that next to you there'd be more

You saw them coming late in the day
Looks like the fight is on,
 you may get your way
 


And
 when 
you
 told
 em 
you 
had 
a
 plan
 (Let’s 
take
 a 
stand)

No 
one
 believed,
 you 
had 
to
 explain

 (Take
 my 
breath 
away)

But 
the
 enemy 
won’t
 wait

Not 
for 
a 
day
So
 you 
say


Just 
come 
with 
me

I’ll 
make 
you 
see

Can’t
 wait
 and
 See


~
VIOLIN
 SOLO

This 
is 
a 
battle 
held 
in 
your 
mind

Instead
 of 
running,
 you’ll 
come
 from
 behind

This 
is 
a 
battle 
held 
in 
your 
mind

You 
keep 
on 
running, 
but 
you 
come 
from 
behind

Track Name: Saddle Up Stories
Saddle up Stories
And let them know your name
Saddle up Stories
And know it takes the cake

You know it wasn’t all a shame
The forces will prolong the game
Jump out, know how to do this
What sort of moment will it change?

Saddle Up Stories

What other secrets I’ve undone
This starts from normal fade away
This time try to run away
Your feeling is gon’ to change

Saddle Up Stories
Track Name: Unbelievable
UNBELIEVABLE

It's unbelievable the things you say to yourself
It's unbelievable the things you cry in the night
It's unbelievable the reasons why I sigh and I lie
That's right I find it unbelievable...

It's unbelievable the reasons why I try
To touch you in the middle of the night
Through your hell
It's unbelievable the things you'll try and try
But why, why don't you want to fly yourself?
Because you don't believe that you are worth all your dreams
It's because what's inside's corrupted by these old memes
It's unbelievable the ways in which we keep ourselves from trying
We could be flying
But here we are, we're dying

It's unbelievable
Track Name: Life Afloat
LIFE AFLOAT

Can you see a plan?
Is your timing hand in hand with mine?
This is where we stand
Nothing like the sea to make you feel
That solid ground’s
Only one type of reality
So take your time
Look out and feel it
This is just the beginning

What’s this holy land?
It makes us [empty] promises then fades away...
Tryin’ to understand
Only in this truth are we set free:
That what came before
Was information for that reality
But then we learn
It’s always changing
And we take it from the beginning

(Bridge)
And when we put in our time and all our love
Maybe we’ll realize
That we are gods and there’s nothing else above
Yeah maybe this time we’ll be fine
With the mundane divine
And then we’ll find
That the sky is so
Open wide...

{Did we take a stand?}
Was the plan to take things by and by?
Truth is in our hands
Nothing like this feeling here to see
This solid ground’s only right now our reality
And now we’ve learned
Now we can measure...

Again and again it’s the beginning!
Track Name: Struggle Inside
STRUGGLE INSIDE

Giving up is all that I know
It's all I ever wanted after the world became a No
Giving up is all that I see
No more future for you, for me
No more glory
No more for me
No more patience....

Giving up is what I've started to do
Don't take it hard, it's not to do with you
It's what's inside of me, a long cold hard stare
That's a part of me, and it won't go anywhere

It won't go away
Not even today
(Not even for Love)
It won't go away...

(It won't go away)
We've started something and that something's more than I can take
(Won't go away)
We've started something and it feels like I'm gonna break
(Won't go away)
We've started something that I've waited for for far too long
(Won't go away)
It's not what I asked for
It's not what you asked for

Making up is all we ever do
Kinda gets useless if I can't get used to you
But I'm burning up in a way I've never known
I gotta keep trying for you
It's why I keep crying for you

Can I feel another way?
(Open your eyes, you say)
Lord, I wish your words would say it!
(But it is not your way)
Must I always read between the lines?
(I'm not gonna change today)
Do we really need to change today?

(Don't go away)
We've started something and that something's more than I can take
(Won't go away)
We've started something and it feels like I'm gonna break
(Won't go away)
We've started something that I've waited for for fare too long
(Won't go away)
It's not what you've asked for
It's not what I asked for

I've got this feelin, dealin with the urge to run away
It's been so hard just to imagine us another day
But we've started something
That I waited for for far to long
It's what I asked for
It's really what I asked for
Track Name: Mudslide
MUDSLIDE

Take a ride
On the other side of this rainbow
Mudslide
That's what's on the other side

Imagine if you died
What would you see on the other side?
Imagine if you died
What would you see on the other side?

So I say
Slide....

I caught the look
On her face
She told me I was a big disgrace
Well what do you know?
That was so
So so long ago


Imagine if you died
What would you see on the other side?
Imagine if you died
What would you see on the other side?

So I say
Slide.......

Imagine if you died
What would you see on the other side?
Imagine if you died
What would you see on the other side?
Well she's here
And
She's got no fear
Cause I saw
Her die
Now she's on the other side
Track Name: Never Again
NEVER AGAIN

Take me in your arms
And never let me go
Not now, not ever
No
We know
We've seen
We've seen the other
We won't let another
moment
Get between us
Not now, not ever
Not now, not ever
No

Take me in your arms
Your loving arms
Where I feel your
Heart beat
And it's real
So real
Not like a hallmark card
Or some fake place I envision
Myself in
But with you
With the real thing
With the real thing
My love

My Love

My Life

My Life
Track Name: No Time Soon
NO TIME SOON

Fleeting memories – catch a glimpse of the past
Relive the moment – to try and make it last
All of the voices – remembering the ride
The looks that you gave to me – you are innocent, you are wise

I am a lover I am a friend
I give and give until the end
It makes it worth it, it makes it right
My heart is on the mend so thank you and goodnight

Endeavor to stand still – take a moment to suspend
To be static, remain light – just to see where the story ends

I am a love, I am a friend
I give and give until the end
It makes it worth it, it makes it right
My heart is on the mend so thank you and goodnight

One Day
(you’ll) Open doors
(with) the courage to stand alone
The courage to be alone
(to) be One with yourself
And nobody else
Your faith in stride
You won’t hide
Without assumptions
Without answers
We’ll let it ride...
