Track Name: Shoreline
Act one, scene one
All in their places
Lights low, hands go
Awkward and graceless
Head games, charades
Hundreds of stages
Actors, faceless
Dancers in cages

I don't forget I just find other ways
Over your shoulder
Closer every day

I have held it with my hands
I've seen it with my own eyes
Made to walk against the tide
Awake at the shoreline

A promise made with
Honest intentions
Is saved for hearts with
Stronger convictions
We'll shake this cage
Till shame makes you listen
Built my empire
on solid foundations

Awake at the shoreline
You'd better believe we're coming for you
Track Name: Mega Man
Looks like you've got an object right in front of you
I've got a um, something unusual
And I was wanting to know if you all happen to know of anything going on up there.
I had a couple of aircraft reported something 300 to 400 foot long
cylindrical in shape, with a strobe
Oh?
At 30,000 feet
We don't have anything going on that I know of
Yeah, this guy definitely saw it run all the way down the side of the aircraft

Ignition sequence start
6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, zero
All engine running
Liftoff, we have a liftoff, 32 minutes past the hour, tower cleared!
Now we got a roll program
Ok, Houston we've had a problem here
OK, standby, Thirteen, we're looking at it.

Because of what you have done
The heavens have become a part of man's world
We're now in the approach phase, everything looking good
Together
Because of what you have done
The heavens have become a part of man's world
This is an accomplishment that cannot be denied
And out of it good things could happen

I believe that this nation should commit itself
To achieving the goal, before this decade is out
Of landing a man on the moon, and returning him safely to the earth
I believe
I believe, this nation
I'm gonna step off the LM now

That's one small step for man
One giant leap for mankind
Track Name: Salt The Earth
After all the life is gone it's too late for sorry
Held it off for long enough but now it starts to break

Follow me and I'll make you great
Recover my heart from at your feet

While under the microscope, the bigger picture fades
Trading memories for hope, defining what's insane

Follow me and I'll make you great
Recover my heart from at your feet
Only a fool would make you wait, huh?

It takes patience, but never mind
You'd rather salt the earth
Time has covered eyes
You'd rather salt the earth
Weak and compromised
You'd rather salt the earth
Time has covered eyes
You'd rather salt the earth

After all the life is gone, in solitude I'll say
Hope is just a beggar and she feeds on stolen days

Get up, get up, get up
Pull your fucking head up
Get up, get up,
We're so fucking fed up

Hands down,
It takes patience, but never mind
You'd rather salt the earth
Time has covered eyes
You'd rather salt the earth
Track Name: Banner
Raise a flag overhead, give us some hope
We've been gone for so long the sun won't come up
There is always room for more in this hole
I am fine far away, I never came home

Don't forget to savor it before I go
A hollow man will start again, this I know
Old regrets worth harboring will not let go
In time all the crazier I've become

Raise a flag overhead, give us some hope
We've been gone for so long the sun won't come up
There is always room for more in this hole
I am fine far away, I never came home
Track Name: I Feel Life
The sun will rise in hours
This is all the sleep I'll get
With all the things I thought would break me
I haven't broken yet
At dawn we chase our visions
Down long and lonely roads
How can I be so far gone
Yet still feel so at home

Maybe, maybe this is all that there is
Maybe we should surrender

But I feel life coming back again
And all our roads lead away
I feel like what is happening
is all our fault, in a way

The sun will rise tomorrow
Despite our darkest day
All the roads I've gone down have been
With me all the way
In comfort and in sorrow
With friends at either side
I won't have to borrow the story of my life

Maybe, maybe this is all that there is
Maybe we should surrender

But I feel life coming back again
And all our roads lead away
I feel like what is happening
Is all our faults in our way

Encircling us all
Track Name: Saturday
Half of it is knowing where you stand
The half that's left involves some sleight of hand
The danger isn't close to what you think

Even now, as all of our roads feel longer
I'll find a way to make sure you feel this one
Hopeless, heartless, hollow whore, bitch
Fear is weight on my heart

Half of me is all that you can take
The half that's left will learn from my mistakes
I wish that I had never had to say

Even now, as all of our roads feel longer
I'll find a way to make sure you feel this one
Hopeless, heartless, hollow whore, bitch
Fear is weight on my heart

Like the weeds caught under feet
Tipharet ascend in me
Redirect my energy
Track Name: Covered In Notes
Some days I'm coming in sideways
Hands covered in notes
Covered in hope
I may only meet halfway
Hands covered in notes
Carve it in stone
One day I'll put this behind me
Hands covered in notes
Covered in ropes
The good days all vanished so quickly
Hands covered in notes
Discovering ghosts
Instead I pulled heaven from my mind
When I couldn't buy you
And wouldn't be home
Now sad eyes pointed at the skyline
That's where I find you
You'll always be home
Some days I'm coming in sideways
Hands covered in notes
Covered in hope
And I'll wait, and save room beside me
Hands covered in notes
I followed them home.
Track Name: To: Me
You might leave here single
You might leave here holding on to me
You might be the signal
That I need to hold on to me

Like a Sunday service
Like a secret tale
Part of me's a circus
Part of me's for sale
Had I known the ending
I would have done the same
Set a course to cross any open sea
And hope the winds sustain

You might leave here single
You might leave here holding on to me
You might be the signal
That I need to hold on to me

When I have all the pieces
I will sew this armor on my sleeve
For I know the battle
Won't be won by waiting in the wings

You might leave here single
You might leave here holding on to me
You might be the signal
That I need to hold on to me

You might lead to trouble
You might be the hopelessness I need
This is where I struggle
Each time
To hold on to me

You might leave here single
You might leave here, hold on to me
This is where I struggle
Each time
To hold on to me
