Track Name: Twenty-Something Years
You lay all out these reasons why you're staying in bed
You say "it's all in my head", oh yeah it's all in your head
You can't remember a time you did a word that was said
You feel as if you were dead, you feel as if you were dead

And these hours fade away
As you sleep in falling rain
And these hours fade away

Your twenty-something summers seem to pass in a blaze
You walk around in a daze, what do you do with your days?
Your sentimental wanderings leave a hole in your brain
But a lantern in fog still moves ahead
Yeah these alarm vibrations you can feel in your teeth
As a familiar song runs through your head
Yeah these alarm vibrations you can feel in your teeth
As all these songs just wander through your head

And these hours fade away
As you sleep in falling rain
And these hours fade away

You lay out all these reasons why you're staying in bed
You say, "it's all in my head," oh yeah its all in your head
It's time for you to listen to the word that was said
It's time to get out of bed, it's time to get out of bed
Yeah these alarm vibrations you can feel in your teeth
As a familiar song runs through your head
Yeah these alarm vibrations you can feel in your teeth
As all these songs just wander through your head
Track Name: Twisted Conversation
What do you do with broken memories?
They parade by on display
It hurts your fingers as you try to pick the shattered pieces up
It gets harder everyday

And as you try to sing your love songs
The words stick in your throat
I say, "God alone will love you"
You say, "I wish he'd leave me alone"

I say, "tell me what's got you feeling sunk"
You say you'd rather stay home and just get drunk
These thoughts about the world just drag you down

Yeah, I hate you, you're the death under my skin
Yeah, I hate you, you're the lies that lie within
You know these twisted conversations I've been having with myself
Everyday

You ask why I'm so optimistic
About a life thats filled with pain
You say it's naive that I say that there's love inside all of your brokenness
If God's around why won't he say?

I say, "your mind's been corrupted by anger and fear"
You say my mind's just been sleeping these twenty-some years
A breath of perspective and get some sleep at night

Yeah, I hate you, you're the death under my skin
Yeah, I hate you, you're the lies that lie within
You know these twisted conversations I've been having with myself
Everyday, everyday

You say that I'm foolish, you say that I'm desperate and full of fear
But I know exactly who I am
You say that you're reason, but reason is twisted like everything else
I know exactly who I am
Track Name: Splinter
Bring me that day my anger will be forgotten like the rain
It comes down and falls apart and blows away
Reconciliation in my heart and in my chest

All you wanted from me were these twelve strange words
"I trust you, I'll keep you, no matter what they say"
It's hard to do that
All I wanted from you was a glimmer of truth,
Not deception and conflict and pain you cause my friends

A swollen head, a broken heart, a swollen head

Maybe it's all I need, and I should come over and out of this darkness
But I've been deceived, to think I could be ever so candid around you
And I lost my head in confusion, its all this illusion
With a broken heart

Bring me that day your folly will be forgotten like the waves
The crash and break and flow the other way
Sincere motivation in your heart and in your chest

A swollen head, a broken heart, a swollen head

Maybe it's all I need, and I should come over and out of this darkness
But I've been deceived, to think I could be ever so candid around you
And I lost my head in confusion, its all this illusion
With a broken heart
Track Name: Peace On Earth
Alone in my skin again, feeling my feet hit the floor
I waste away wondering why people say there's nothing more
Than the mass of flesh and bone that makes the beating of our hearts
And the swirling around of chemicals that makes the longing start in our minds

These aren't just thoughts, yeah they are lies
These aren't just thoughts, yeah they are lies

Alone in my head again, I think the things this sickness has brought
They said one hundred thirty dead and more are bleeding out, when will this stop?
These violent acts of men just match the violence in our chests
These lies upon our lips just match the lies that are found buried in my chest

These aren't just thoughts, yeah they are lies
These aren't just thoughts, yeah they are lies

God, we need your peace on earth, come rolling like a flood
Into the desert of our hearts, into the cancer of our minds
Bring restoration to our broken homes, our violence-stricken streets
We need you

These aren't just thoughts, yeah they are lies
These aren't just thoughts, yeah they are lies
Track Name: Stay
I would tell you to stay
These fears that haunt you can be broken down by faith
Don't let the demons in your mind carry you away
Amidst the shadows he still holds on

Yeah, stay
This beating heart that weighs down your soul will fade
All of the things you always think but never say
Are like vapors in the wind

Stay with me
Don't let the anxiousness that sweeps your mind
Keep you alone
Don't hide with your fears in the dark

Yeah you can't sleep
And I can't see how it's going to end
But i'm here 'cause you were always there with me in the dark

Yeah, stay
Grace and peace alone will keep your frost at bay
Believe the things you never think but they always say
Amidst your creeping doubts just hold on

Yeah, stay
Though your head it spins your God he still remains
And his goodness endures despite your fear and pain
Amidst your broken doubts just hold on

Stay with me
Don't let the loneliness that wanders in
Keep you alone
Don't hide with your fears in the dark

Yeah you can't sleep
And I can't see how it's going to end
But i'm here 'cause you were always there with me in the dark
Track Name: I Need You (Reprise)
These days have been going over my head
These days have been going over my head
Time is a stranger I just cannot read
A drop in the ocean, a lost soul at sea

I'm barely hanging on

The only thing I could say, is I need you
The only thing I could say, is I need you
The only thing I could say, is I need you
The only thing I could say, is I need you

These days I've been feeling so insecure
These days I've been feeling so insecure
My head is a monster I just cannot tame
A wandering man who forgets his real name

But you can calm my storm

The only thing I could say, is I need you
The only thing I could say, is I need you
The only thing I could say, is I need you
The only thing I could say, is I need you

I'm barely hanging on
I'm barely hanging on

The only thing I could say, is I need you
(I need you here)
The only thing I could say, is I need you
(I need you here)
The only thing I could say, is I need you
(I need you here)
The only thing I could say, is I need you

You can calm my storm
