Track Name: Promised Land
I followed the preacher to the mourning son
He said "although I don't care, I see something's wrong"
He told me to "find some heart in the Promised Land"
Me... I just want to be the best man that I can

Even my lover wants me to let this go
She sees empty in the fullest things I know
I find solace and comfort in every song
And it keeps me close to bliss

Time has never been a friend but it has served me well
And I have had some trials with personal hells
still I throw my two sided icon up in the air
But I always seem to bottom out

Sometime I get lost in this lonely town
And hollow people try to fill my heart with doubt
Still I find solace and comfort in every song
And it keeps to bliss

Oh, we'll build a fire


Lyrics by Chris Ryder.
Track Name: Back West
I wrote you a letter
Just in case you are lost
And I told you of stories
Before we grew apart
And I never let on
to my burdenous silence
But I guess you knew better anyway

Because now you're heading back west
To find yourself you said

In this city of egos
I'm back from the dead
And this burdenous silence drifts away

Because now you're heading back west
you'll find yourself I guess...


Lyrics by Chris Ryder.
Track Name: If Only You Knew
I'm guilty without crime
I've been tearing myself apart within
I guess I could keep writing these lines
But feeling never felt like sin

I'll never shed a lie I swear
By giving me hope you leave me unprepared
If only you knew...

Words are hard to hear sometimes
Give yourself some time to heal
Shedding a tear won't help you now my dear
Love has gone to far this time

I guess after all these years
I've become my own worst fear
All this promises we made
If only you knew


Lyrics by Chris Ryder.
Track Name: Bridges
You said you'd save the world
Oh, how we dream
In our suffering
In this madness
We all know

Like the leaders of the dead
We are bored with petty theft
And our fear is never ending
And we may die alone in here

It's how we love
It's how we hate
It's the way we faint our lives away

When our bridges have become
riverbeds and we're all gone
Will we have the answers?

We are forever changing
in need of change
Oh how you were
Oh how we were...


Lyrics by Chris Ryder.
Track Name: The Silence In Between
We are awake
Cloaked in fear
Running amok
Feeding desire

We're moving in cycles
These circles
We breath
We are still craving the silence in between

For years we have moved
Further from ourselves
Changing, feeding insatiable desire

We're moving, we're needing the silence in between
We're needing and craving the silence in between


Lyrics by Chris Ryder.
Track Name: Favourite Colour Green
Like the moon you have your moments
Like your promises, become enemies
You came and stole the night sky
and you drew me in...
Yes you drew me in

You wear your heart on sleeve
to watch the others bleed

You came in between my lovers
and with a kiss you took my breath away
I have no doubt you're like the others
But my memories are stained with images of you

You wear your heart on sleeve
to watch the others bleed
But there's more that lies between
your favourite colour green

You know you had a way of,
of showing me I wasn't so imperfect

Lyrics by Chris Ryder.
Track Name: Angels & Devils
All your devils are fading away
And light is now filling you day
Listless and hopeless in all you want to be
You're free, free, free

But on your new day!

You found now deep within you
There are no angels
Listless and hopeless in all you want to be
You're free, free, free

But now comes your new day
And I warned you
I warned you
I warn you
But you never change


Lyrics by Chris Ryder.
Track Name: These City Lights
Am I broken?
Am I falling apart?
This may sound crazy
But I fall in love with everyone I meet

These City Lights
Have blurred my vision
Now I can't see the world for what it is
or so it seems...

These cities have no walls
They cannot keep you in

I maybe crazy
I maybe falling apart
I look around these isolated streets
and all I see are animals and thieves

These cities have no walls
They cannot keep you in

So take my hand
We leave tonight
We'll find our place beneath vanilla skies
We'll spent our nights by candlelight
and under stars we'll forget time
Track Name: Ghosts
Whilst my love is softly sleeping
My heart is quietly weeping
It seems all I've left forgotten
Still haunts me through the night

I wish I had a lullaby
To sooth the woes within
Instead my heart just races
Seems I'm plagued with troubles deep

Oh the weight of soul

When I lay awake I fear
One day I'll disappear
Leaving only ghosts behind
As i fall into the sky
