1 – Get Out
Be still and close your eyes. They’ll come for you when you’re weak. Be still and close your eyes. Don’t listen when they speak.
I will not be a slave to this body. Get out. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. Get out. I don’t want it.
Light it up and let it burn to the ground. Get out. I can feel it. I’ll rise above the ashes. Get out. I don’t want it.
Light it up and let it burn to the ground. Get out. I don’t need it. I’m sick of giving in. So let the walls come down.
Flesh and bones will return to dust. But your love holds me, forever. I am sick, sad, weak, tired and broken.
I say “I’m fine”. But nothing’s fine. All the lies, the lust, the tongue like a razor. I say “I’m fine”. But nothing’s fine, so let the walls come crashing down. Get out. I don’t want it. Light it up and let it burn to the ground. Get out. I can feel it. I’ll rise above the ashes

2 – Speak (Feat. Christian Lindskog)
There is something deep inside. A seed of faith that keeps me questioning. If I could see like you do, where would I be?
Who would I be? Sometimes it isn’t enough. But if I linger here for a while, you will only hear me speak. If I could hear you.
Speak into our hearts, a song to shake the earth. Love will light the way that leads us home. There is something buried underneath this concrete floor. From a seed, fragile sprouts are pushing upwards. If I could see like you do, but I can’t so I won’t pretend. But I feel it. One day those sprouts are going to break through the surface.
There’s a question that connects us all. Is there more than life and death? And even though we all take different roads, it burns within our chests. I don’t need the signs and wonders, no scientific proof. Speak to me. Speak into my heart, a song to shake the earth. Will I live forever? Or will I disappear? My mind is searching for answers. My heart saying it’s never been so clear.
Speak into our hearts, a song to shake my perfect world. Love will light the way that leads us home.

Lyrics: Shane Ochsner / Christian Lindskog

3 – Poison
Falling deep into the sound. One more hit should numb the pain, when I hit the ground. I’d give anything to rest in your arms tonight. Tear the needle from my skin. Hide me somewhere safe before the drugs kick in. I’d give anything to rest in your arms tonight. How long will I live like I’m already dead. I can feel my heartbeat slowing. How much will it take before I’m seeing red.
This isn’t who I am. This isn’t what I had planned. Free me from myself. How long will I live like I’m already dead.
I can feel my heartbeat slowing. How much will it take before I’m seeing red. I can’t feel anything. I’m begging you for a chance to start over. There’s a light within all of this darkness. As the poison runs through my veins, Oh God. I would give anything, just to rest in your arms.

Lyrics: Shane Ochsner

4 – Most Days
I made a promise I would never do this again. But here I am. Getting caught was not enough to bring this to an end. I guess I’ll never learn. Feeding this addiction, keeps me well. At least most days. Stacking lies to keep everyone from finding out.
Because if they only knew who I’d become. A fake, a hypocrite, I’m on the run. I can’t do this on my own. Let the hell that follows me, be gone. Bury everything that I’ve become. I just keep running, but there’s nowhere left to hide. So here I am. Here I am I’m letting go of this tonight. I can’t do this on my own. Only you can save me.

Lyrics: Shane Ochsner

5 – You Are
I’m a song that only you can sing. Nobody knows me better. I’m a light, that only you alone can see. Through this stormy weather.
And in the darkest times I’ve ever known. You waited, patient beside me. You are. I’m a spark in burning fire. Still you can see a purpose. And after all the times I’ve walked away. You have kept your promise. You are. Beautiful you are. I’m a song that only you could sing. Let my words be more than nothing. Beautiful, you are.

Lyrics: Shane Ochsner

6 – Numbers
I’m lost, and I’m out. I walked away from you and never turned around. This life, and this place. The numbers don’t add up I think I’ll go my own way. But you’re still here. My heart and my soul. They used to be so strong until I let my faith go. My song, silenced. The numbers can’t be right, they never make sense. But you’re still here. Carry us home. The numbers don’t add up, I think I’ll go now. Carry us home.

Lyrics: Shane Ochsner

7 – The Fool
Take a look into my eyes and tell me what you see. Nothing hurts anymore, I’m just bitter and empty.
Don’t try to save me, I’ll be just fine. You don’t know where I have been. This is more than a cold, cheap conversation.
So don’t be surprised, if I say “You can keep your words. You can keep your kingdom. Keep your hands to yourself, I’ll bet you’ve never met a sinner like me.” I sit alone, with a demon hanging on my back. Finger resting on the trigger, I was weak and hopeless. Everyone talks, but nobody listens. You don’t know where I have been. This is more than a cold, cheap conversation.
So don’t be surprised, if I say “You can keep your words. You can keep your kingdom. Keep your hands to yourself, I’ll bet you’ve never met a sinner like me. And even though you claim his name, it’s not enough to kill the pain. So keep your hands to yourself, I’ll bet you’ve never met a sinner like me.” I’ll be just fine. There’s no rest in the bed that I have made. A fool I am, I’ll hold my pride above the things that keep me suffering. “Can you feel these words? I will never leave you. Lay your burdens to the ground, walk away and I will set you free. And I have always known your name. It kills me son to hear you say ‘keep your hands to yourself I’ll bet you’ve never met a sinner like me.’ I’ve always know your name.”

8 – Come Down
I may never come down from this state of mind. Like I’m standing in an ocean, bailing the water out with my bare hands.
I know, I wasn’t made for this. To be able to understand you, and where it all began. I’ll never. After all that’s been said, I should know by now. That life’s a whisper. The answers may not be found. I am the one who doubts. Like a wave of the sea, that is driven and tossed by the wind. Is this all just in my head? Am I growing closer, when it feels like failing? I have never heard your voice. But have I really listened? Have I really tried? I may never come down. After all that’s been said, I should know by now.
That life’s a whisper. The answers may not be found.

Lyrics: Shane Ochsner

9 – Remember No More
I got caught up in the moment, I fell hard and cursed your name. But the door was always open, and you loved me still the same.
Remember no more. I will remember no more. I’ve been hiding in the shadows, so no one else could see my face.
I’ve been drowning my convictions, in a sea of selfish waves. I’ve tried so many times to let this go, but it flows within my veins.
How can it be? That you could keep me so close, when I’m so far away. Come closer and break the silence. I am reaching out for you. I will remember no more. How can it be? When you say I will remember no more. The door was always open. The door was open and you loved me still the same. What does this mean to me? How long will I stay lying down? It’s like I’m stuck in a dream, free falling to the burning ground.

Lyrics: Shane Ochsner

10 – Proxima (Feat. Holly Ann)
Oh, hold my soul. If I should come undone, hold my soul. Hold my soul. When everything I know, goes away. If I should come undone, hold my soul. Rushing waves. Streaming creek. Will your love hold in my defeat? Take me now. Pull my pride apart.
Put in me a cleaner heart. Hold my soul. Hold my soul in the wake of the storm, if I should come undone. Oh, hold my soul. If I should come undone, hold my soul. Hold my soul. When everything I know, goes away. If I should come undone, hold my soul.

Lyrics: Shane Ochsner / Holly Ann
