The Falling ^

walk down that road again
no surprise you fall again
I don't I don't I don't know know I do it
get up get up get up or forget it

just as well
such a gracious God you know
standing there and waiting
to catch you when you fall

time it goes on and on
lesions learnt soon forgot
I can't I can't I can't get over this
give me give me give me another chance

The Outcast ^

it's like, I don't belong here, anymore
it hurts, to see you all
this anger, isn't misplaced
but I beg, it could be replaced

And I don't understand
To heal this broken land
What must happen
Are we moving too fast
Or are we moving at last
Or are we mistaken

I can't follow those words, from your mouth
But I can't turn my back on this
I can't see the way forward
Show me, the path

And I don't understand
To heal this broken land
What must happen
Are we moving too fast
Or are we moving at last
Or are we mistaken

Would you rescue me
Please rescue me

Signs Of Your Confusion ^

you never got it, never got, but then again
you'd never want it, want some, some common sense
not of God, not of God, but then again
I'm not ordained, a priest as such, but then again
to some degree, i do agree, but not a lot
I am saved, i hear the voice, but not there
i made a choice, i stick to it, it burns my heart
to see you all suffer for this

Empty your and bury your signs of your confusion
to need of not, a sorry lot follow signs to nowhere
i still believe you'll have your time, but what a price to pay
you'll have your way, but who's price do you pay

Sick Of This ^

dont want to bring you into this
dont want to bring you into this
man takes anothers life
caught cheating on your wife
dont want to bring you into this

I'm sick of this my darling
i'm tired of worlds distortion
another faceless corporation
I'm sick of this, I'm sick of this

All that feeds your desire is money
Searching for the land of milk and honey
every breath your take away
Itching for an early death
I'm sick of this, I'm sick of this

I'm sick of this my darling
i'm tired of worlds distortion
another faceless corporation
I'm sick of this, I'm sick of this

change this world
bring your kingdom
clear out this sickness
ofrapesexismhatredracismwar
leaveyourchildtodie
perversionprostitutioncrime
while you lie cheat and steal

I'm sick of this my darling
i'm tired of worlds distortion
another faceless corporation
I'm sick of this, I'm sick of this

Get Up / Give Up ^

what would I sing if no ones listening
what would I say if only you asked
but I cant live without your constant help
but I cant breathe without your say so

Get up or give up

waiting for your golden word
to save me from myself
lead me in the right direction
feed me from within

Get up or give up

I can't believe it happened
so quickly as it fell apart
in our hearts were we misled
but I know I chose the right path

Get up or give up

Wait ^

Wait here now
don't make a sound
We'll explain things later
Darkness spawns another child
Wait I believe but not in here

I'm growing too tired
I'm starting to fade
But you know me I'll

Wait while you think
Wait while you fool around
Right by the brink
Lord but it never comes down

Stop too fast
it's going wrong
Where did it start like this?
So many years turn around
But seriously friends
where have they gone

I'm growing too tired
I'm starting to fade
But you know me I'll

Wait while you think
Wait while you fool around
Right by the brink
Lord but it never comes

And I see
I see your eyes
down here
But when I see,
I see your eyes down here

White is the hope
that you're still here
in this

Not Job Here ^

Don't take him away
surely we're not done here
Please let him stay
I can't move without him
Hide him from me
it upsets me to see him this way
Time steals away
what we have left

Help me I'm not Job here

Time gone to hide
this business carries me
through the tide
Be gentle with me
I feel like giving up
on everything
to start a brighter day
the way things were

Help me I'm not Job here

I'm not fooling anybody here
it takes its toll on me
broken inside
I cling to faith I can find
it's so easy to believe when its not happening to you
but others still have faith
and I'm holding on to that

Help me I'm not Job here

Worn Down ^

how can this be, you would sell us all for some money
how can this be, you would kill in the name of God
corruption and hypocrisy surrounds me
nothing makes sense anymore

worn down by the world now

I've seen the face of those ravaged by war
I've seen those left cripped for life
I've seen times that they change
or is this just the same as before.
How can you let this happen
human choice in it all
If I were king, would I change anything, would I make the difference
weak willed weak skinned as everyone

worn down by the world now
Leave the human race, I don't belong here
I've had enough of this, I can't live in fear
worn down by the world now

Reaching For You ^

what if I've noticed you looking at me, looking to you
what if I breathe out of time when your around
I notice the way your hair flows when touched by the wind
I've seen the way your lips curl round your teeth

I look and I see pieces of me reaching for you
how do I hide from myself and all that I feel

you've raided my dreams and all of my thoughts
how can I feel this while I wear my mask of constraint

I look and I see pieces of me reaching for you
how do I hide from myself and all that I feel
how can this be you've covered me with thoughts of you
reaching for you

Just As Well ^

He still notices how crippled you are you know
I still look
To notice your pain
even when its no there

Watch them all go by
hand grasping hand
As if we're all held together by this

Time can't wash away
the tracks you leave
Burn them in as I fall

What he failed to show
Love never fully goes
What he fails to say
Still keeps them away
Just as well

Taste came to me
While we're moving to
past that should have been left there

What he failed to show
Love never fully goes
What he fails to say
Still keeps them away Just as well

Foothold ^

No matter what is paid
yes the prise remains the same
I'm loosing my foothold in you
I'd like to see you here
in the good and in the clear
Yes my heart still bleeds for you

And I'd like to be here
When you come around
I'd like to be here
When I see you falling

In the weight of it all
another burden of my guilt
Avoiding a cost a price my loss
Wait is that all another word another truth
Don't leave me hanging on to this

And when the time comes
will I be ready
And when the time comes
will I see your glory

Feeding myself hurts no more
I have lost my sweet adore
Trusting myself hurts some more
I have lost myself recall

And I fall
I try to catch myself
But I must turn to you

While love is all I need
Your love is all I need
