Track Name: Falling
Falling like snow
Outside your window
Every little trace melts into
Something different something new

Gathered for years
They fall down like tears
Only little signs remain
Playing hide and seek with the rain

And the glass it breaks
Every time you shake
But it's not too late
For this dream

Gone with the breeze
And whispered through leaves
There's a pattern in the past
Growing hesitant blurring fast

Spreading like flames
No rules to these games
Just a feeling in the air
Is the only proof we were there

And the world goes on
It's not right or wrong
Every thought belongs to this
Move through this dream

Breaking like waves
These names that we gave
All the reasons not to do
And the voices that we use

Far out to sea
The sirens call me
There is menace in their cries
Nothing different that way lies

And the glass it breaks
Every time you shake
But its not too late for this
Move through this dream

Falling like snow outside your window
Every little trace melts into
Something different something new
Track Name: Home
We are s'posed to be strong
You might not feel it today
Still we all carry on
Where there's a will there's a way

We all want to belong
And yet leave our own trace
Never put a foot wrong
And get lost in the race

We all learn to be proud
And yet want to fit in
Standing out from the crowd
Never letting them in

Here side by side I am ready to fight
Stronger with each day that comes
Knowing it's right I hold onto it tight till the end
'Cos I don't want to run
I see in your eyes you've heard many lies
But each word I say is the truth
Years they have passed but I've got here at last and I know
This is home

We are s'posed to want more
Not accept second best
All beliefs that we've stored
Are now laid with the rest

We all try to forget
Things that keep us awake
All the problems we've met
And every little mistake

Here side by side I am ready to fight
Stronger with each day that comes
Knowing it's right I hold onto it tight till the end
'Cos I don't want to run
I see in your eyes you've heard many lies
But each word I say is the truth
Years they have passed but I've got here at last and I know
I've tried many ways wasted many days
Eyes open wide till it's light
Got lost on the way but now I'm here to stay and I know
This is home

We are s'posed to be strong
You might not feel it today
Track Name: One By One
One by one we walk
Never looking up
Believed someone
That was all we got
But deep inside
We felt the need to fight
No longer blind
Stepped out into the light

Please wake up
Please wake up
Please wake up life is happening
All around you

Please wake up
Please wake up
Please wake up and stop letting it
Happen without you

One by one we hide
Shut out all the noise
We're lost inside
Searching for a voice
We stare ahead
And bury things unsaid
Far too afraid
We sleep until we're dead

Please wake up
Please wake up
Please wake up life is happening
All around you

Please wake up
Please wake up
Please wake up and stop letting it
Happen without you
Track Name: Weight of the World
Marching on
We are torn
Between all the things we own
And letting go

Heading out
There's every single doubt
But what we know

I'll share the weight with you
I won't let it break in two

Through the noise
Hear a voice
And struggle to make it home before it's gone
Every day
There's always another way to carry on

I'll share the weight with you
I won't let it break in two

From another time
Looking back it's fine
Thoughts that filled our mind disappear

Every word we said
Every step we made
Left a little trace
We were here

FIghting sleep
Buried deep
Under a heavy load of what we know
What we keep
Seems to be just the thing we should let go

I'll share the weight with you
I won't let it break in two

From another time
Looking back it's fine
Thoughts that filled our mind disappear

Every word we said
Every step we made
Left a little trace
We were here

And I'll share the weight with you
I won't let it break in two
Track Name: This Isn't Easy
It's nearly the end
And I knew we'd be friends
RIght from the start
But let's not pretend
This isn't easy

It's nearly the time
And I know we'll be fine
Here in the end
But the fear's not all mine
This isn't easy

We can find our own path
And just as long as we laugh
Each time we fall
Then I know we can last
But this isn't easy

Will we fight with each breath?
Until there's nothing left
But what we know
Will we doubt every step?
This isn't easy

We're trying to climb but it's suddenly far too steep
We're forced to wake up and torn from an easy sleep
We want to move on but we can't seem to find our feet
And when everything's done will we finally feel complete?

It's nearly the start
Growing closer apart and letting go
And if we learn to be smart
It can be easy
It can be easy
It can be easy
Track Name: Great Escape
Big open sky
How do you slow down time?
Wide open space
This is a different place
Far from the crowd
We all can think out loud
Big open day
This is our great escape

Wide open eyes
Breathe deep and say goodbye
Choose your own theme
And who you want to be
Just like the clouds
We're drifting in and out
Big open space
This is our great escape

Shut down
Drown out
Everything that's not here and now
Shut down
Drown out
Everything that's not here and now

We are fragments of our moments
Little pieces of a whole
We break our gaze look up and see

Big open sky
You make me long to fly
Over this space
To find an empty place
There's light and sound
My feet can touch the ground
We may not stay
But it's our Great Escape
Track Name: Sound of Silence
The sound of silence
It fills the air
It's taken my whole life and still I care

The sound of silence
My enemy
It leaves me with my thoughts and they terrify me

The sound of silence
We learn to fear
It rings out through this space when there's nobody here

The sound of silence
We fill with noise
It leaves us all alone haunted by our own voice

There's no need to speak
Words can make you weak
There are many years and they'll still be here

The sound of silence
It's deafening
It makes you doubt your mind with its questioning

The sound of silence
We need to know
But in this crazy world it has nowhere to go

There's no need to speak
Words can make you weak
There are many years and they'll still be here
