Track Name: Distance
i am so quick to roam
a dozen places to call home but i can’t abide
you’ve been my north and south
my east and west but i still feel the distance

Chorus:
when i have nothing but cold down to my bones you stay with me
until the trembling subsides and I can dream
a watchman waiting through a storming sea

yeah, nothin goes the way that i had planned
can’t tell you what i want but i can count what i don’t have
and how i do
like pulling nails from all that we’ve been through

bridge
when i am alone, anxious and unknown
and every sound on the wind is a song I wish I wrote
poor and empty handed, no where left to stand
you tell me who i am, you call me back to land
Track Name: Unhaunted
Will you haunt me when you die?
Will you still haunt me when you die?
Will you still invade my very demeanor?
The weight of your words still bend me low?

I would never make you cry
You know I would never make you cry
I whispered a cloud for your protection
I whispered a sound your ears will never know

Chorus:
All these dreams echo in
Empty halls forgotten
All these tears a vapor
You are unhaunted

I could never make you cry
I know I could never make you cry
Your face unchanged, my words unheard
Arrows shattered against a stone wall

Bridge
What a waste that I still listen
What a waste of precious time
I can hear the words you spoke
As if you were the maker of my mind
Did you keep what you took from me?
Can anyone keep what you took from me?
It’s the dust that falls beneath your feet
Track Name: Seasons
In mid November we walk through the narrows
to burn the color of fire into our minds
A last embrace to fuel our hearts through the long winter's night

Where do the seasons go
I know that nothing lasts the whole year through
With the way the leaves change
It’s a good thing there’s me and you

Spring wrecks the low, brown land and we are green and white again
More white than green each year
I watch our daughter with her jeans above the ankle
another year has disappeared

Where do the seasons go
I know that nothing lasts the whole year through
With the way the leaves change
It’s a good thing there’s me and you

No one can take from me the lines upon my face
You got to earn em
Breathing in and out for at least ten thousand days
The world keeps turning
The distance blurring
I touch your hand and hear you say
I wouldn’t have it any other way
Track Name: Inside My Prison (Acedia's Song)
the advantage to being sad is that
you think you understand everyone
around you
if you shine a light on me
i'll squint my eyes and curse the beam
that stopped my view of shadows
and dark dreams

Bring me flowers with no thorns
String white lights along the bars
It's so much better
It's so much better
inside my prison
inside my prison

In a city on a hill or in the valley of despair,
Well, Jesus, I live in the suburbs and I don't often see you there
But I have all I need
Where I am safe and I am free
I may have life and have it mediocrely

bridge:
It's just the daylight
I still sleep just fine
I can fill my mind, I can fill my mind
Just fill the daylight
Keep me occupied
So I won't mind, so I won't mind

the savior in my plan
will pull the plow up from my hand
He wants to please me
And on my misery
I will spend all my energy
And I will blame him when there is no need for me

Chorus:
Bring me flowers with no thorns
String white lights along the bars
It's so much better
It's so much better
inside my prison
inside my prison
Track Name: He Loves You
I don’t have the power to right all your wrongs
I don’t have the power to undo what you’ve done
(It’s just been two hours)
I don’t have the strength to love you on my own
As soon as I started I got angry again
Start to curse you and then
In the very same breath

He loves you
He loves you

I don’t have the words to speak my mind
As you hide underground
I lost my voice cryin' out for justice
And I can’t hear a sound
I could dig up the dirt
And muddy my hands just to realize
I can’t find the cure for an empty heart waiting’
For a justice that’s died
I try to let go
Can’t deny what I know

He loves you

I’ll bury this one more time
Cause I can’t take back what’s mine
