Track Name: Today
Today, I’ve decided that I’m going to stay
Today, I’ve decided things will go my way
And then you say, "if you don’t like today I’ll just wait another day. I’ll just wait another day." And you’re still waiting. You’re still waiting, you’re waiting.

Today, I’ve got a feeling I’ll be okay
Today, I’m going to play
And then you say, "if you don’t like today I’ll just, wait another day. I’ll just wait another day." And you’re still waiting. You’re still waiting, you’re waiting.

What will you do today? What will you think today? What will you do today? Today…

Today, I’ve decided I won’t be swayed
Today, I excited for a brand new day
And then you say, "if you don’t like today I’ll just, wait another day. I’ll just wait another day." And you’re still waiting. You’re still waiting, you’re waiting.
Track Name: Let This Go
These thoughts, they ruminate. I need to let this go.
Again and again, rewind. Again and again. I need to let this go.

Open my eyes, to challenge what I think I know. I’ve found it’s one way to grow.

Perceived injustice fuels this fire. I need to let this go.
Five alarm blaze, it’s found within. I need to let this go.

Open my mind, to challenge, what I think I know. I’ve found it’s one way to grow.
I need to let this go. I need to let this go. I need to let this go. I need to let this go.

Open my eyes, to challenge what I think I know. I’ve found it’s one way to grow. Open my mind, to challenge what I know. I’ve found its one way to grow.
I need to let this go. I need to let this go. I need to let this go.
Track Name: One Step
When I look at the world, I want to see it from another perspective.
So I can understand, what I don’t see, see, see.
When I look in your eyes, I want to know what you’re thinking.
So I can understand what you see, see, see.

And we’ll take this one step at a time.
We’ll leave the past, behind this line.
One foot in front of the other.

Take a step back, to get an objective view. I’ll try to understand and I’ll feel a bit free, free, free. And I’ll try to comprehend the other’s perspective. And now we feel, we understand, and we both see, see, see.

And we’ll take this one step at a time.
We’ll leave the past, behind this line.
One foot in front of the other.

We all want to be heard. We all want to be heard. We all want to be heard. And it starts with being able to listen.

And we’ll take this one step at a time.
We’ll leave the past, behind this line.
One foot in front of the other.
And we’ll take this one step at a time.
We’ll leave the past, behind this line.
One foot in front of the other.
Track Name: Like Hell
You may not believe me.
You may not agree with me.
Like hell, I’m giving up.
Like hell, I’m giving up.

Work too hard to pull away.
Why do something halfway?
Like hell, I’m giving up.
Like hell, I’m giving up.

There’s no turning back.
There’s no turning back.
Like hell, I’m giving up.
Like hell, I’m giving up.

Candle burning at both ends.
Seeing less of good friends.
Like hell, I’m giving up.
Like hell, I’m giving up.
Like hell, I’m giving up.
Like hell, I’m giving up.
Track Name: Halfway
We left it, with you walking away.
Turning around only to say, hurtful, angry, un-thought out noise.
I’m breaking free of all your ploys.

These are perceptions within your mind.
How can you expect me to find the right words say,
when you won’t even meet me halfway

I am so sorry to say "This won’t affect me the way you intended from the start. You won’t see me fall apart."

These are perceptions within your mind.
How can you expect me to find the right words say,
when you won’t even meet me halfway.

These are perceptions within your mind.
How can you expect me to find the right words say,
when you won’t even meet me halfway.

These are perceptions within your mind.
How can you expect me to find the right words say,
when you won’t even meet me halfway.
Track Name: Work To Mend
You thought for years, if you let go.
You wouldn’t know who you were anymore.
You thought, “This is all that I know. Change is much too scary, because of the unknown”.

Let’s raise a glass, and toast to your goal.
Here’s to experiencing control.
We’re going to push, push to the end.
We’ll get through this together, and work to mend.

It’ll be, alright if your attitude is.
It was never about the planned outcome.
Or the goals, you set for yourself today.
It’s about what you learned along the way.

Let’s raise a glass, and toast to your goal.
Here’s to experiencing control.
We’re going to push, push to the end.
We’ll get through this together, and work to mend.

Let’s raise a glass, and toast to your goal.
Here’s to experiencing control.
We’re going to push, push to the end.
We’ll get through this together, and work to mend.
We’ll get through this together, and work to mend.
We’ll get through this together, and work to mend.
Track Name: Find My Way
“I guess we’ll see what this one’s really made of” he said.
As I venture into uncertainty.

But I’ll, I’ll find my way down here.
I’ll find my way down here.
I’ll find my way.
I’ll find my way, to you.

I want to learn from everyone I meet.
Set free, these ingrained beliefs.

But I’ll, I’ll find my way down here.
I’ll find my way down here.
I’ll find my way.
I’ll find my way, to you.

Doubt and question the limits.
I’ll doubt and question the limits.
I’ll doubt and question the limits.

But I’ll, I’ll find my way down here.
I’ll find my way down here.
I’ll find my way.
I’ll find my way, to you.
Track Name: Conversations About Life
A woman stopped to talk with a man.
He looked as if he were late for his plans.
She asked him what he wanted in life.
He said “I’d like:

Understanding to integrate.
Respect to appreciate.
I want pride to radiate.
I want truth to mediate.”

I was walking and I saw a man.
He shook a jar and held out his hand.
I asked him what he wanted in life.
He said “I’d like:

The strength to pursue,
And the courage to continue.
I’d like patience to cope;
To inspire hope.”

Sitting outside, I’m enjoying the sun.
A man approaches, out of breath from a run.
He turns at me, and asks “What do you want in life?”

“Open-mindedness to see.
To make time for afternoon tea.
Intuition to foresee;
To let go freely.
Understanding to integrate.
Respect to appreciate.
I want pride to radiate.
I want truth to mediate.
The strength to pursue,
And the courage to continue.
I’d like patience to cope;
To inspire hope.
Open-mindedness to see.
To make time for afternoon tea.
Intuition to foresee;
To let go freely.”
Track Name: Sleep At Night
It’s been awhile now, but I’ve been meaning to ask you.
I say this without judgment; I really feel I need to know.
How you sleep at night? How you sleep at night?

This drive I feel to be accountable. Do you ever feel the same?
Because we can justify anything to ourselves. It’s intriguing to me, to hear.
How you sleep at night. How you sleep at night.

How do you sleep at night? How do sleep at night?
