Moto 02:23
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!

Here I Am 02:27
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
3.
Liar 03:03
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

Crying Wolf 03:35
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

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
6.
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
