Track Name: Moto
It's been five years since I stopped caring what they thought of me
I'm a messenger at heart, with a blatant personality
So you can say I'm strange or stay out of my way
Or maybe you'll listen to what I've got to say
I can't hide the things he's done for me
What is the benefit of subtlety?
If I believe a savior is the only thing they need
And I hid it between the metaphors what kind of person would I be?
Is it that important that the crowd thinks we're the best
What is the benefit in the end?
I'm just trying to show them all that there's a better way
How can I do that if i veil what I say?
No one will ever silence me!
Track Name: Here I Am
Life is more uncertain now
And I'm searching for tomorrow but I know My life is in your hands
Had my future laid out
The next few years all played out in my head
But I am just a man
Here I stand with no plans before me
So here I am, submitting full control
I can't stand not knowing what's before me
So here I am, playing my role
I'm not used to giving up control
Feeling I'm not living up to your standards
But I just want to obey
I can plan out day and night
Look at darkness or bathe in light, but what matters
Is that I walk in faith
Track Name: Liar
I have always been so proud of my honest heart
So naturally the truth flows from my mouth
Of course I have lied my share of times in my life
But it's pulling the teeth they pass to even spit them out
So it's so hard to find that I've been lying to myself all this time

I say I know you but it's time I realized
This life I lead is far from glorifying
Redundancy is plaguing me, it happens all the time (happens all the time)
Because I just keep trying

And it's so dark in here And I need you near
To ease my growing fear

So now I know the truth that I've been missing all along
Or maybe just didn't want to hear
And I confess I'm a lifetime liar of the truest kind
But I'm no longer blind

And it's so dark in here And I need you near
To ease my growing fear
It's so hard to find that I've been lying to myself all this time
Track Name: Crying Wolf
So I'll say it again, for what must be the thousandth time
I know I've sinned against you and that's not another line
You're the only one who knows what's inside my feeble heart
I repent for it once again, once again a brand new start

I try and I try and I try, but I can't do it without you
I try and I try and I try, but I can't do it without you anymore

I know what's right, and it's the only thing I want
But the only thing I want is the one I never do
I hate this sin inside me, but I give in almost every time
I do the very thing I hate as I push you aside

I try and I try and I try, but I can't do it without you
I try and I try and I try, but I can't do it without you anymore

Do my words even reach you, oh lover of my soul?
Or have I cried wolf one too many times?
Please hear me and the words I'll probably say again
I'm sorry, please change my heart and mind

So I'll say it again, for what must be the thousandth time
I know I've sinned against you and that's not another line
I hate this sin inside me, but I give in almost every time
Please teach me to rely on your power,
through my weakness I know that I'm strong
You're right beside me and your grace makes me strong
But I'm so helpless on my own


And yet I try and I try and I try, but I can't do it without you
I try and I try and I try, but I can't do it without you anymore
Track Name: Someday Not Soon
What happens when it all comes to an end
Gone from the one
your closest friend
There is no doubt your love is something real
Goodbyes are hard, the pain will heal

I wish I had some scholarly advice
Something that could make it all go away
But I will always be there when you call
And offer a shoulder when you need to cry

'Cause I'm always here, I'll always care
I'm praying for you I want you to be aware
Someday not soon the memories of pain will fade away
But a contented love will always remain

I've been through this myself a couple times before
I wish I could say it wouldn't be so bad (won't be so bad)
Second song to you is not more cheery than the last
I wish it didn't have to be so sad

'Cause I'm always here, I'll always care
I'm praying for you I want you to be aware
Someday not soon the memories of pain will fade away
But a contented love will always remain
your contented love will always remain

There is no doubt your love is something real
Goodbyes are hard, the pain will heal
Track Name: Here All Along
Suddenly my defenses are down
Blindsided by my own curiosity
Now the enemy is attacking all around
My heart is pounding through my chest
And there's no way that I can get my rest tonight
God save me! Give me your truth so I can stand up once again
Keep me prepared so I can have a peace within
I look out on this battlefield, the one I call my life
I can see that you're my strongest ally in this fight
Yeah, I'm praying on the armor, Lord
And already I feel strong
Yeah, my fear has begun its drifting
Because you've been here all along
