Track Name: Strength Finder
I’ve got this vision in my head; I can’t seem to put down on paper
If there was only some way I could make it clearer

If there was some way you could see
Just how much all this means to me
Then I will finally be the man I want to be

Sometimes I wish I was stronger than this
Overcoming obstacles I’ve created
Sometimes I wish I was stronger than this

Pushing through these strongholds, I’ll make my stand
I don’t need your approval to be happy with who I am
And I will fight for my chances
To be one of the few who brings a message
I will never let you bring me down

I won’t tear this all apart

Pushing through these strongholds, I’ll make my stand
I don’t need your approval to be happy with who I am
And I will fight for my chances
To be one of the few who brings a message
I will never let you bring me down

I know now that I am stronger than you
Track Name: Lost and Broken
Once again this is taking its toll
The longer I wait reality turns fake
And this is not where I belong
I never thought I could be this strong
I look back and wonder where have these last years gone?

I’m captivated, on how I stayed motivated through all this time

But it’s because of you, the hurting, the lost, the broken
But it’s because of you, everyone that’s lost and broken

To people out there trying to find their way in life just like me

If just one word from one line
Could bring you back to life
Or take away your strife
Or show you love bother greater than you, and I

If just one word from one line
Could bring you back to life
To show you a love both greater than you, and I

Oh Lord please give me the words to say

Oh Lord please give me the words to say
Make me a vessel of hope to bring glory to Your name

If just one word from one line
Could bring you back to life
Or take away your strife
Or show you a love bother greater than you, and I

For he is here to bring life
And life more abundantly
For he is here to bring life
And so are we
Track Name: Homeward
This destination my motivation to find my way
As I come close, what I fear most
Is misery waiting at my door step
But I’ve done all I can, and if there's one thing I know
There's always someone who loves you that’s not far from home

But where there’s love there’s also hate
How can there be joy where sadness rains?
I'll push harder, I'll move farther until I’m far enough away
But in the end I'll know I’m wrong, and every second I am gone
I’ll know where I belong

I'll know where I belong

But I’m searching for that place; An existence of complacency
These thoughts cloud my mind; Darkness overcasts my light
I’ll break this hold you have on me is what we all say

It's what we all say

We try so hard to escape
But instead what if we embrace this place
That’s made us who we are

And some are afraid to call it home
But I have made this place my own
It’s not where we are
But who we are, and how we got there is “home”

But when I watch the sunrise over that mountain top
I remember who I am, and what that place has made me
I must find my way back
Thoughts of negativity, and insecurity depart from me

Depart from me

We try so hard to escape
But instead what if we embrace this place
That’s made us who we are

And some are afraid to call it home
But I have made this place my own
It’s not where we are
But who we are and how we got there is “home”

And I know misery is not far from home
But I regret every second I am gone
Track Name: Falsifier (feat. Steve Jackson of Open Fire!)
Growing older I've been growing colder
To everyone that should make me be growing bolder

I am almost ashamed, not for the message for the name
I am almost ashamed, not for the message, but for the name

What was once held so highly to me
With such respect and honor
What was once held so highly to me
Used with such selfish intent

God is not a catalyst, a title, or just a thank you
He is a means of life, love, and true happiness

I can’t stand the sight
Of seeing what I want to be
Destroyed right in front of me

And I’m not saying I’m perfect
But I have not lost sight of my reasons for doing this

With every song I sing and every word I say
I will make sure I don’t end up like you
Watching your heroes die again and again can take its toll

But once again
I will prove myself to be stronger then you
We all have our faults
But I will prove myself to be stronger then you
