Track Name: Dead Mans Bones
The sun will rise and the sun will fall
On these dead mans bones
Search this earth as a common man
Trying to build up stones

Plant some seeds far across this land
Walk an old dirt road
Spend youths time on the fighting lines
Where its rough and slow

You can tug on good and evil with old ragged rope
Be the saint or sinner, our time is unknown

And we all know a stranger
Running down dark halls
Riding on a black horse
Reaper in the cloth

And we all know the danger
Lurking down dark halls
Riding on a black horse
Coming for your soul
Track Name: Ebb & Flow
Down the rows the gardener goes
Pulling weeds away from cold tombstones
Sees a grave that has his name
Smells the wind and knows his fate

A rambling man with weathered hands
Hiding out, now waiting on the dead
A soul adrift, no wife or kids
Tiptoes 'round never to be missed

In the ebb and flow
Waves will take you were you go
In the ebb and flow
Wave will guide you with rhythm
Through currents that you don't know

Once a Prince in a foreign land
Born to rule, had a ring upon his hand
And a bride to be, she had eyes in green
Love was in her heart, as water is the sea

Now He digs the holes
For the bodies with no soul
The caption reads "rest in peace"
Almost out of time, the years gone by
Asks the Lord for grace and mercy
Lord please

In the eb and flow
Waves will take you were you go
In the eb and flow
Wave will guide you with rhythm
Through currents that you don't know

There's a man behind the scenes
Who forgot how to dream
Track Name: Let the Great World Spin
So cold
Autumn winds they blow
Calloused hearts
Sink like stones

Shed these clothes
Burn in the fire
Babylon fell with desire

I will let this great world spin
Walk its tight rope from end to end
Found forgiveness is hard to give
So I will let this great world spin

Hollowed words can bring you down
Where you lie holding hands with the ground

I will let this great world spin
Walk its tight rope from end to end
Found forgiveness is hard to give
So I will let this great world spin
Track Name: Born Into the Light
On this road I've been burned
At the crux of my hearts turns
Set down to die
In the sorrow of my lovers eyes

Man has faults just like me
Weighs us down like a guilty plea
Put on trail for this world to see
Love is the verdict that we've reached

I was born into the night
Lived by faith, yeah and not by sight
Soon these troubles will disappear
And symphonies of beauty play in my ear
Living in the shadow lands is where I've gone
Never realized they were caused by the sun
Imaginary darkness is who I believed
Envisions of the past enslaved me

Rain fall down upon my face
Wash this filthy grit away
Turn back the clock when I used to chase
The beauty of a dream and its glory days

I was born into the night
Lived by faith, yeah and not by sight
Soon these troubles will disappear
And symphonies of beauty play in my ear
Living in the shadow lands is where I've gone
Never realized they were caused by the sun
Imaginary darkness is who I believed
Envisions of the past enslaved me

And for what its worth
I've found new life in the sounds and sights
And for what its worth
I've found new life in the sounds and sights of love

And for what its worth
I am found
And for what its worth
We are found
