Track Name: No One Knows
No one knows I'm alone
No one cares if I'm lost or on my own
They say a man should act grown
But what's a man with no foundation to lead him home?

No one knows what you don't know
No one knows that you're a man who don't know where he goes

They a say a man succeeds alone
But what's a man with no foundation to lead his home
Turn out the lights and say no
To every sign that you're loosing control
You're loosing control
I know how it goes
I know how it goes

There was a man who believed in ghosts
He tried to claim that one was holy and that it called him home
He's been gone since those notes
Sometimes I wish I was with him and not alone

They a say a man succeeds alone
But what's a man with no foundation to lead his home
Turn out the lights and say no
To every sign that you're loosing control
You're loosing control
I know how it goes
I know how it goes
Track Name: All I Have
Back to my humble abode under that abandon bridge
I found a spot by the river to clear my head
But as the fog thickens my veins are filled with lead
I hope you're really something like she said

I never asked for any help, but now I'm screaming for new life.
Please put my mind to rest and my heart aside.

Taking away your blessings ruined me
Almost would have rather never felt love
I wasn't happy but I wasn't like this
I went having nothing to being nothingness

I never asked for any help, but now I'm screaming for new life.
Please put my mind to rest and my heart aside.

But when that moment came you said you weren't sad
I gave some thought to the feeling and never went back
I hope you're really something like she said
I'm giving in completely your all I have
Track Name: Promises
Broken promises, promises, promises
Leading astray through the night in the dark
You say things, just one thing, everything
But you never learned from what you always taught

Angels we have heard on high again
Have shown us that we will never be alone
There always is someone there bright and clear
You just have to see like the God we all know

Somewhere down deep-side the soul
Someone’s knocking at my window
Someone I don’t even know
Promised that one day it’ll show

Everything, everyone, everywhere
Can’t see enough to know they’re not alone
But the truth is everyone, everywhere
Has God’s angels surrounding their homes

Somewhere down deep-side the soul
Someone’s knocking at my window
Someone I don’t even know
Promised that one day it’ll show

Broken promises, promises, promises (x4)
Track Name: Blue Ridge 2
He's the one that's seen it all
From ground of sand, to mountains so tall.
And when we rise, we rise to fall
But he'll be there, to watch us all.
To wash us all clean, to wash us all.
To wash us all clean.
Track Name: If I
If I was old enough to look on what I did
I would be screaming inside my own head

You need to follow
All of my failures in the end
Lead me to the father, and back again

If I was wise enough to stop all that I did
And think about the options laid before my hands
Pick and choose between which ones make most sense
But you can't determine sensible in the end.

All kids have a father
One holy reminder how we all got here
He's the living water, fresh breath of air
Who are you to say how we got here?

If you could look enough to see the differences
Between the common functions and the thoughts within
You'd clearly realize that all the work you did
Would be worth nothing but dirt in the end,
What's dirt in the end?
What's dirt in the end?

All kids have a father
One holy reminder how we all got here
He's the living water,
He's the living water
Track Name: Legacy
Take your hand put it in the grass
and build me something that’s built to last
the foundations you set will never pass

Take your hand make it out of coal
and set our futures into gold
you learned us all, you learned us young and old

With gifts of love and peace
You changed the way I thought of me
What I can do now I see
You changed the ways inside of me

Your blessings are enough for any season
You give me more than I Thought I’d never have
If any man says what he's done is from him then I’ll say
everything comes from the Lords hands

With gifts of love and peace
You changed the way I thought of me
What I can do now I see
You changed the ways inside of me

And even though you never had a son you treated the rest of us like we were the only ones

Even though now you are gone through the ones you touched your legacy will live on

And though outside of the gates you stand I pray to God that you make it safely in

And I’ve some regrets and I’ve have some harsh truths but the worst of all, I was so far away from you

With gifts of love and peace
You changed the way I thought of me
What I can do now I see
You changed the ways inside of me
Track Name: Hope Like A Light
I lay alone at night
Until the shadows disappear
And watch the darkening sky
Reignite hatred and fear

I wish that I could go back
But my path is frozen
Please give me insight
So I know this life was chosen to live


Shallow hope from a shallow grave
I know there’s nothing on my body that was meant to be saved,
Please give me hope like a light
So I may shine on for you in the darkest of times


I watch the river, the flow of life
As I think Money is so bland
We’re all just birds in the sky
Flying over an ocean so grand

Why do we toil? For all it’s worth
What’s the Importance?
Please give me insight so I know
how this all sorts in the end

We all got no where to land


Shallow hope from a shallow grave
I know there’s nothing on my body that was meant to be saved,
Please give me hope like a light
So I may shine on for you in the darkest of times
In the darkest of times


I’m no longer alone tonight
The street lights fade as I walk toward the sunrise
Oh how your hope will ignite
A soul that once was lost but now basks in your light
