Track Name: Your Heart
And if we want to be discouraged,
And if we want to block the light,
then we can all just keep on living
a life that's never satisfied.

Because all of the things that we have done break us off from what is real.
And when it's all said and done,
there is only room for one.

So now just look inside our hearts
and hang your head with disappointment.
Cause we all have nothing to give to this world, we are sick.
Unless we choose the one who gives us
the choice to break out from our skin.
Come out from our darkness and into His sight,
be His child.

Because all of the things that we have done break us off from what is real.
And when it's all said and
when its all said and done.

There's only room for one.
There's only room...
There's only room for one.
There's only room...
only room for one.
Track Name: Take This In
Your father's stuck.
Your mother's sick.
And you don't know how to deal with this.

So you walk across the street where
you've heard maybe someone cares.

My God he loves like no one else,
but that's so hard to grasp when all you've seen is hell.
You are so young and it is not fair, but he can take away this weight that hurts your head.

So if you can, then just believe it.
And if you can, then let him in.

All I know is what He's done for me and I can say that He is good.

So what should we even expect
from a child who's hearts a mess?
Every time life comes around,
it never last so he lashed out.
Here we are lets take him in,
a crowd of people standing still.
So I'll move forward and reach out.

All I know is what He's done for me and I can say that He is good.
Track Name: The Rest Is In Silence
And I thought about
a tree falling down
to crush my head against the earth we walk around.
A sense of relief,
then of disbelief...
How could I wish something so bad upon myself?

You cannot see what I need but come on and get over here.
We can just sit and I'll talk about my lack of self and all I need to throw away.
So stand up and slide down from everything that hurts your head and makes you want to walk away.
I'm alright with it,
I'm alright with it.

It came back again,
the thought of caving in
my head, but nothing came from it.
I know my sins.
Was this meant to be?
Hurt settled in and comfy.
This will not end until we break the neck and bones.

You cannot see what I need but come on and get over here.
We can just sit and I'll talk about my lack of self and all I need to throw away.
So stand up and slide down from everything that hurts your head and makes you want to walk away.
I'm alright with it,
I'm alright with it.

Cause I have to be alright with it.
Track Name: Shut Out
Open the door
that was shut once before.
There's someone who can relate to
the way you feel,
want to die.
Worry steals
what is waiting for you outside.

Open the door.
