Track Name: A Safe Place
Somewhere between the lines of harmony
Is discord and dissonance
I always find myself in the in between
And you’re right there in front of me

Guiding the way
Guiding me to safety
Away from the worst harm that could befall me

You are always there
You always care for me
I’m safe in your arms
I’m safe in your arms

Somewhere you’ve seen
Deep inside of me
Something worth saving
Something worth protecting
In your eyes I’m not a failure
In your eyes I’m not a freak
In front of you I’m free to be anything I want to be

Guiding the way
Guiding me to safety
Away from the worst harm that could befall me

You are always there
You always care for me
I’m safe in your arms
I’m safe in your arms

I’m safe here

Guiding the way
Guiding me to safety
Away from the worst harm that could befall me

You are always there
You always care for me
I’m safe in your arms
I’m safe in your arms
The shelter I cannot see
I can only feel
With a love I thought could not be
You made this haven real
Track Name: Jesus (Brand New cover)
Jesus Christ, that's a pretty face
The kind you'd find on someone I could save
If they don't put me away
Well, it'll be a miracle
Do you believe you're missin' out?
That everything good is happening somewhere else?
But with nobody in your bed
The night's hard to get through

And I will die all alone
And when I arrive I won't know anyone

Well, Jesus Christ, I'm alone again
So what did you do those three days you were dead?
'Cause this problem's gonna last more than the weekend
Well, Jesus Christ, I'm not scared to die,
I'm a little bit scared of what comes after
Do I get the gold chariot?
Do I float through the ceiling?

Do I divide and fall apart?
'cause my bright is too slight to hold back all my dark
And the ship went down in sight of land
And at the gates, does Thomas ask to see my hands?

I know you're coming in the night like a thief
But I've had some time alone to hone my lying technique
I know you think that I'm someone you can trust
But I'm scared I'll get scared and I swear I'll try to nail you back up
So do you think that we could work out a sign
So I'll know it's you and that it's over so I won't even try
I know you're coming for the people like me
We all got wood and nails
And tongue-tied at hate factories
We all got wood and nails
And tongue-tied at hate factories
We all got wood and nails
And we sleep inside of this machine
Track Name: Many Rooms
I know there’s something wrong
I am not a pure man
I am a sinner like the rest of us
And this house can’t hold me in
I am expanding quickly
At the speed of light
If just for tonight

There are many rooms in this house
But not all of them hold the hope you have
You’re my saviour, my captain

In just a few short days the pain will wash away
And I am trying to hold back the fears that threaten to drown me
I am just a man
I’m human like the rest of us
Even if I’m doomed to fail
I will pick myself up again

There are many rooms in this house
But not all of them hold the hope you have
You’re my saviour, my captain
Track Name: Dancers
I watch your fingers trace across the sky
Beautiful motions bring tears to my eyes
I could watch you all day
Spend my time with you if I could find a way
But our fates are not meant to be intertwined
Oh how I wish it didn’t have to be

Because there’s something so beautiful
About how you move
The way you sway

I could watch you forever
I want to watch you dance
Because of the way that you move
You’ve got me in a trance

The seasons change you
But you’re still the same to me
A beautiful painting
An unending movie
I wouldn’t have it any other way
I’ll enjoy each frame each passing day

Because there’s something so beautiful
About how you move
The way you sway

I could watch you forever
I want to watch you dance
Because of the way that you move
You’ve got me in a trance

Dance for me
Please one more time
I know you’re tired
But don’t let this be goodnight
I want to watch you dance again
Dance for me please
Don’t say this is the end
Track Name: Silhouette
Am I dreaming again?
I think I might need a hand
Cause as I recover it’s slowly getting underneath my skin
There’s a face I see
It makes me hope, it makes me believe
That I’ve not reached the end
Life is beginning again

I’ve returned from the dead
And what is in my head?
The dreams of what could be
Could I finally be set free?

I have found a hope deep within my heart
I forgot it existed as I fell apart
But as I’ve rebuilt I’ve discovered a way
To keep the past behind me, to focus on today

The faces in my dreams
What could they mean?
They give me hope for the future
Of a better life for me
Because now I have found hope
And no one can take that from me

I’ve returned from the dead
And what is in my head?
The dreams of what could be
Could I finally be set free?

I have found a hope deep within my heart
I forgot it existed as I fell apart
But as I’ve rebuilt I’ve discovered a way
To keep the past behind me, to focus on today
Track Name: She Is The Air
There’s something I can see in my head
I’m falling in love with a dream
I hope will come true before I’m dead
A vision of beauty, a hope for my heart
Something to save me before I fall apart
I’m falling in love with a dream
And I love what it seems to be

If I had one wish
It would be for this dream to come true
I love all the words she says to me
I love that they’re all the truth
No worrying about lies
She speaks true, she speaks fair
I know it’s alright
She is the air

There’s something I can see in my head
I’m falling in love with a dream
I hope will come true before I’m dead
A vision of beauty, a hope for my heart
Something to save me before I fall apart
I’m falling in love with a dream
And I love what it seems to be

I pray to God
Please let this dream come true
Heal me, and hold me
Don’t let this be just a dream I knew

There’s something I can see in my head
I’m falling in love with a dream
I hope will come true before I’m dead
A vision of beauty, a hope for my heart
Something to save me before I fall apart
I’m falling in love with a dream
And I love what it seems to be

She is the air
The hope I breathe
The hope that she is real
The hope that she doesn’t leave
I will find her
I will make her my bride
She is the air
The air of my life
Track Name: Whispers Of Light
Whispers of light fading, fading
All sense of time fading, fading
There’s a space between our minds
A sense of love, a sense of time
And it goes on and on
On and on

We hold the chaos within our hands
Life in the balance on the ground where we stand
There’s a space between our minds
A sense of love, a sense of time
And it goes on and on
On and on

We’re breathing, finding space to grow
We’re more than actions, more than mere animals

Staying up to watch the stars
Closing distance between our hearts
There’s no space between our minds
We grow together in due time
We go on and on
On and on

We’re breathing, finding space to grow
We’re more than actions, more than mere animals

We hold the chaos within our hands
Life in the balance on the ground where we stand
There’s a space between our minds
A sense of love, a sense of time
And it goes on and on
On and on

Whispers of light fading, fading
All sense of time fading, fading
There’s a space between our minds
A sense of love, a sense of time
And it goes on and on
We go on and on
Track Name: Wise Hands (The Safety Fire cover)
That face never aged
Escaped the tragedy of time
This once real light caught in time

You were looking into nothing

Ink resolves into a specter
A one way mirror
Cast a dark shadow across
Kiss its formless skin
These old wise hands
Now the picture as dead as he
Pose betrays the mind

Every word said a fiction
Presence the only truth
In a world of chance
We shared the horizon

You were looking into nothing

Ink resolves into a specter
A one way mirror
Cast a dark shadow across
Kiss its formless skin
These old wise hands
Now the picture as dead as he
Pose betrays the mind
Track Name: Sprain (Anniversary cover)
The wind blew us a million miles away
Through the dust the comfort in your voice walked away
Someone please help me
Awake but numb collapsing into her doctors arms
We got the news and learned all our dreams - they got lost at sea

I can’t stand on my feet, dizzy from the pain
Am I alone? Am I alone? No
So I’ll crawl on my knees cursing everything
It’s not a break, it’s not a break. No
I’m just sprained

I was caught off guard like a glass of water on the floor
The world around me turned upside-down. Will we make it out?
There’s a will, there’s a way, we will find it
Whether weak, whether strong; we are binded
Hard to walk into darkness, I know, but you won’t

I can’t stand on my feet, dizzy from the pain
Am I alone? Am I alone? No
So I’ll crawl on my knees cursing everything
It’s not a break, it’s not a break. No
I’m just sprained

There’s a will, there’s a way, we will find it
Whether weak, whether strong; we are binded
Hard to walk into darkness, I know, but you won’t

I can’t stand on my feet, dizzy from the pain
Am I alone? Am I alone? No
So I’ll crawl on my knees cursing everything
It’s not a break, it’s not a break. No
I’m just sprained
Track Name: Alive
When we reach the end of the line
The most we can hope for is that we used our time
To the best of our abilities
And that we found a way to grow love
This and above
Let’s be everything we could’ve ever dreamed

This finite time is not on our side
But we found a way
This life of mine is as fluid as the tide
But we found a way
To make it out alive

Pray for love
It’s the only way we’ll learn to breathe again
Pray to the God above or whatever you believe in
Because we can’t live without love
In the end all we have is each other
And we’ll rise and fall together

This finite time is not on our side
But we found a way
This life of mine is as fluid as the tide
But we found a way
To make it out alive

This finite time is not on our side
But we found a way
This life of mine is as fluid as the tide
But we found a way
This finite time is not on our side
But we found a way
This life of mine is as fluid as the tide
But we found a way
To make it out alive
