Track Name: Shallow Graves
It flows like the wind
Soon we’ll be away from here
And we float like the leaves
Soon we’ll lie on the ground

But in the meantime I wish,
That the emptiness in your eyes
Was filled with love
And regrets for what you’ve done

We live like old kings
Hungry for feasts and wars
And we’re fools for believing
That yet one day, we’ll dwell in the stars

But in the meantime we can hope,
That the shallow graves we build won’t be in vain
And have faith in love,
Though I can’t see none, from what you’ve shown

Soon will come changes around
You can hide but you’ll be found
So can you hear, oh can you hear
Won’t you hear the sound of change ?

But I dream of a garden
The wind blowin’ on my face
And the trees over my head
The leaves singin’ in my ears
Track Name: Days Gone By
I’ve seen the days goin’ by
Into these darkened times
Oh I’ve seen the days Goin’ by

How can a mind resist
Such hollowness is desease
How can we not feel all the pain
We cause to each other

I don’t see how
I can’t see why

Walking the streets withdrawned and dazed
Watching the sun from the fewest of rays
How can a man see wilderness
From such a mess

I don’t see how
I can’t see why

This is the time
A choice is to be made
Cos’ we are riding a wave
That will never hit the sand
And I want to feel
The warmth of the sand
On my skin

So you’ve seen the days goin’ by
Into these heavy hearted and darkened times
How can we let the devil prevail?

The garden has turned to stones
And hearts are filled with rusts
Let’s not let this world become
Thorns with no rose
Track Name: Should Know Better
I should have seen better
When I first got here
The time I’d spend A-moaning

I should have seen clearer
When I first laid eyes
It took me by surprise

Too much is too much
I’m getting tired of it
Getting Rough...

They took the highway down
Down to promised land
They messed with it all around

They buy your souls
And the drugstores
They drill the earth
And tare the forests down

The earth‘s in danger
And they keep up the pressure
They play with fear

For what a man
If he gains the whole World
But loses his own soul
What can a man
Give in exchange for his soul

I should have known better
When I first got here
The time I’d Spend A-Moaning

I should have seen clearer
When I first laid eyes
It took me by surprise
Track Name: Spirit Within
Lover, would you help
Make it through the year
My mind is such a hollow place
I don’t wanna be in

Through the fire
And rain I have lived
But now it’s time to see
What God planned for me

To enter the sunlight
Breathin’ down its warmth
Cos’ even in the night
There will be a guiding light

The only thing you need Is letting away the greed
That takes down the soul
And I believe you’ll feel some kind of testing real
Though whispers in your ears
Will try and drown you right in your fears

Throw way away
The devil’s entertainments
The spirit within is captive and hurts

The only thing you need Is letting away the greed
That takes down the soul
And I believe you’ll feel some kind of tasting real
Though whispers in your ears
Will try and drown you in your fears
It’s time for you to see
What God planned for thee...
Track Name: Green Gold
I am just a simple man,
This is only who I am,
And I don't feel no different from a falling leave.

And if you care to know
The only difference in between
They breath our breath, we breath theirs
So don’t be afraid to care

You don't seem to get,
The value of this green gold
Why'd you cut off its heads

(There) was a time I felt different,
Like a bird in the woods
Flyin’ on from tree to tree
But now it's time to run

I want to see
The eyes of those
Who triumphantly destroy the whole family

We’re building walls
There should be bridges
Oh won't you show mercy
For the child who sees all
