Track Name: More To Life
What will we see,
We're going out tonight
The stories believed
Are they out of their minds?

Taken straight
Where we were warned about
The others will leave
And we'll be left behind.

The light is fading
The sun parts company
Will there be answers
Of any kind

Holding position
We are one with the night now
Full of suspicion
As to what we'll find

Then I was staring into a light
No matter what i'd do
It kept in sight

I saw it all with my own eyes
So what I'm saying to you
May surprise

They were right!
I changed my mind
Once it was proven there's so much more,
More To Life!

Into the trees
Hope is holding out tonight
Though people believe
The chances will decline

It's so hard to see
It's really coming down now
Washing away
The odds of any sign

They're feeling deceived
The trail went silent now
They're starting to grieve
There's nothing there to find

Well I was staring into the night
No matter where I'd move
It didn't feel right.

Then I saw it with my own eyes
So what I'm saying to you
May Surprise

Try as they might!
To change my mind
It's been proven there's so much more
More To Life!
Track Name: Potential
You never sought out influence
As something to be achieved
Just sharing all your common sense
Pointing out we are aggrieved

Acting on your dissonance
Quickly labelled naive
But in your so called ignorance
You planted as seed.

You made them believe
You made them believe
In all they could be
Much more, potentially.

So focused on all that I lack
Never one to agree
I could bring the meaning back
To everything I can see

Always one for instant fix
I'd take all I could receive
And acting on my tenderness
It's when I want to leave

I'd start to believe
In all I could be
Potentially free
My humble plea
You've dropped down a key
I'm going beneath
To fight to set free
From all
That shackles me.
Track Name: Flowers
Recall where you had been
Another broken scene
The last placed you'd choose
It held the most to lose

Let your defences fall
Worn down by standing tall
Waking up from the dream
Things aren't quite as they seem

They laughed and played along
Making a slave of the strong
In all the wrong they'd done
Search for the smoking gun

And while I tried to care
So little you would share
I never meant you harm
Just slow to raise the alarm

Thrown to the wolves below
Now they will never know
The flowers we could find
Deep in the back of your mind.
