Track Name: Eve
born in a garden before there were tears
a world that was given to you and i my dear
but we left our father, it's been so many years
i'm lonelier now than before you were here

i remember a girl with a smile on her face
but i haven't seen her ever since that day
mother of all living watch your babies play
at night you cry in my arms, they will die someday

she cries and she cries what have i done
the forbidden fruit when we were young
the choices we made brought the death of our son
can anyone stop what we've begun?

i remember a god with a smile on his face
but i haven't seen him ever since that day
i haven't seen him ever since that day

can anyone stop what we've begun?

there's a god in the garden and tears run down his face
father of all living watched his children stray
he cries and cries no justice is done
the choices we made brought the death of his son
but he raised him up, on the clouds he will come
and only he can stop what we've begun
only he can stop what we've begun
he will remake what we've undone
Track Name: Childhood
can't forget all the summer nights we spent catchin' fireflies
i remember so clearly now, we would find the shapes in the clouds
i can see it so clearly do you see what i'm seein?
what i'd give to go back again

oh what i'd give to go back again
we should've never grown up
we should've never grown up
cuz this gap grew between us

can't forget all the rainy days we went out on the porch and play
'til night came to claim her throne we'd make every tree our home

oh what i'd give to go back again
i should've never grown up
i should've never grown up cuz this gap grew between us
and i feel so far away from you tonight
i feel so far away but i hear you say

look me in the eyes, i will find you with a million miles in between you and i
look me in the eyes, i will find you with a million miles in between you and i
look me in the eyes and become a child again

i will look you in the eyes and listen to your word
i will follow you and become a child again

i will look you in the eyes and listen to your word
i will follow you and become a child again
Track Name: Tempted
i danced with the devil underneath the pale moonlight
i was hungry and thirsty, he offered me bread and wine
told me all the kingdoms of the world could be mine
i thought about what he said, then the sky turned red

i don't need to be told that the devil is a liar but i didn't run away 'til the sky was on fire

i was alone when he found me underneath the desert sky
i swear there was only a half moon out that night
the wolves surround me, around me on every side
i thought i was dead 'til the sky turned red
'til the sky turned red

i don't need to be told to run when the sky is on fire
i don't need to be told to run away

the devil is a liar and i don't need to be told that the devil is a liar
but i didn't run away 'til the sky was on fire
Track Name: Whirlwind
when the whirlwind came we went underground
at the siren sound some went to chase it down

weather's changin' and we'll all run in some direction
weather's changin' and we'll all run in some direction

rain falls on everyone, windows close and the flowers open
and i know i'm not the only one, we all run in some direction

it was a little ways off, i had my ear to the ground
every body runnin' around
and i know the storm cellar won't save this town

weather's changin' and we'll all run in some direction
weather's changin' and we'll all run in some direction

rain falls on everyone, windows close and the flowers open
and i know i'm not the only one, we all run in some direction

i'll be runnin' into the storm when it's comin' down

i would rather die bein' strike by light than go the rest of my days scared to live my life
if it's my last glimpse, what a pretty sight, a moment of day in the dead of night

rain falls on everyone, windows close and the flowers open
and i know i'm not the only one, we all run in some direction
rain falls on everyone, windows close and the flowers open
and i know i'm not the only one, we all run in some direction

i'll run in your direction
i'll run in your direction
Track Name: Disease
she sells her body, red lights on the street
i sell my castle and become a priest
she feeds her baby and cries herself to sleep
if i hate my brother, i'm a murderer, the bible tells me so

and if i hate the wicked man what makes me different than him?
he stops at her door to pay, i'll just keep her in my head today

he preaches jesus under stained-glass windows
then beats his children when he gets home
she drinks the bottle and her hatred grows
the neighbors pretend they don't hear screamin' in the house next door

but if i hate the wicked man what makes me different than him?
if i stay silent what makes me different than him?

it's a virus, everywhere i look is violence
it's a virus it's a disease

everybody's lyin ' through their teeth
(everywhere i look is violence)
everybody's lyin' through their teeth
(everywhere i look is silence)

it's a virus, it's a disease
it's a virus, it's a disease
it's a virus, it's a disease
it's a virus, it's a disease

deliver us from evil
deliver us

it's a disease
Track Name: Betrothed
love is in the air tonight
true love is a song only god could write
love is in the air tonight
and i hope we grow old together side by side
maybe we'll be forgotten
maybe we'll be remembered
either way i promise you and i will be together
love is in the air tonight

we'll spend our whole life learnin'
for richer or for poorer
in sickness and in health, we'll fight

we'll spend our whole life learnin'
a song only god could write
love is in the air tonight
Track Name: Betrayed
i can't forget you, did you forget me?
you said forever me only
how could this be?
i can't forget you my love
how could you forget me?
you said forever me only but his arms are around you

let her go and depart from you
and know what she will do
and love her love her still
love her love her still

whatever happened to for better or worse?
whatever happened to you bein' by my side?
when we were alone all the promises you made
then you ran off and threw my love away
you told me you really loved me
you told me you really loved me
but my sorrow cannot be healed
my sorrow cannot be healed

let her go and depart from you
and know what she will do
and love her love her still
love her love her still
you said forever

i'll take you back if you would only return to me
cuz i said forever

return to me and i will return to you

cuz i said forever
i cannot forget you my love
Track Name: Anchor
life was harder than you thought it'd be
love was harder
the road was longer than you thought it'd be
and you thought you'd be farther

pain was stronger than i thought it'd be
i thought i'd be stronger
i think about the way it used to be
i thought we'd be together longer

when everything you want is lost or taken from you
when everything you knew for sure
you don't know anymore

whatever you do, don't let go, don't let go
whatever you do

whatever you do hold on, hold on
Track Name: Servant
i see you, you're perfect
you should not be seen with me
i'm guilty, you're innocent
but you come and cover up my shame
what is your name?

what is your love more than any other?
what is your love?

i'm servant, you're master
but you tell me you must wash my feet
how could this be?

what is your love more than any other?
what is your love

i hated you and ran away
but you waited
this manner of love has prevailed me

what is your love more than any other?
what is your love

there's no greater love than to lay down your life
for me

my jesus, my jesus
Track Name: Fearless
restless, fearful, you can't fall asleep tonight
you're scared even with me here
it's in your eyes
you realize we won't always have each other

i don't want to be afraid of the dark
i don't want to be afraid
i don't want to be afraid of the dark
but i'm scared of us bein' apart

restless, fearful, you can't fall asleep tonight
you're scared even with me here
it's in your eyes
you realize we won't always have each other

i'll show you a world
where you don't have to be afraid of the dark
you don't have to be afraid
you don't have to be afraid of the dark
you don't have to be scared of us bein' apart

you don't have to be afraid
Track Name: Brilliance
when i was a child i thought the joy would never end
i was alive and was sure i'd always live
then my heart died, i fell asleep

but your voice woke me up with music in my ears
you looked me in the eyes and drove away my fears

i love the way you wanna' hold my hand
we'll watch the trees burn down and grow up again
and if i fall asleep wake me up with music in my ears
look me in the eyes and drive away my fears

you are so beautiful i cannot look away
you are so beautiful you take my breath away
every eye in heaven is locked on you
and everyone on earth will adore you
Track Name: Pure
every eye in heaven is locked on you
and everyone on earth will adore you

there is no death here, no, there is no death here
everything is alive

everything is alive
