1. Loopholes
2. Alone

You claim to be righteous, you claim to be just
How do you explain it’s crumbling to dust
Through the darkness within, they give the lies another spin
In the words we cannot hear, lives and breathes our biggest fear
Our biggest fear …..

Who is in charge, who’s in control
It won’t take long to find another loophole
The system’s weak, the system’s flawed
Oh , how it pays to be an outlaw

You do what you need to, you do what you must
How do you explain our lives start to rust
In ignorance we dwell, contained in a little cell
Drowning in beliefs…How do we get the hell from here
Out of here ….

It never ceases to amaze how we struggle through the days….

For everyone, for every goal…..there’s always another loophole


Staring at the screen….
Isn’t this a film I’ve probably seen?
Zakkie’s coming round , bringing a bottle of red
He’s dimming all the lights, overload’s coming to an end

I’m layin’ down my bones to rest
It’s healin’ time, alone at last

Solitude my friend…not a word is being said
This peace of mind has never felt unkind
Some peace and quiet never caused a threat
You find the answers you don’t want to hear
You hear the words that’ll make you bleed

I’m layin’ down my bones to rest
It’s healin’ time, alone at last

Sleep tight….. the fight’s ending tonight

3. The Bigger Picture
4. Colors on the Ceiling

You say: “the apathy has grown inside of me”
That’s something I didn’t foresee
Waiting for the tide to turn, need some oxygen to burn
Feed the cleansing fire, resurrect desire

If everything has gone and everyone has gone away
I want to see the bigger picture
Part of me was wrong, that part of me was lead astray
I couldn’t see the bigger picture

I don’t ….. Don’t want to be the reason for doubt
Don’t want to be the one who disappears in a crowd
I’m trying to remember to be the best I can
I’m trying to become , to be a better man

Without the dark we can’t see light,
Without the wrong we’re always right
Without mistakes, we need no correction
Without love, there’s no perfection


My earliest memory, the first I could ever see
Nothing was ever dull, everything was magical

Yearning for a time, nostalgia
In the good ol’ days, we let the music play

Colors on the ceiling… connected with a feeling
there’s nothing more appealing than the colors on the ceiling

The tune of the A-Team, the definition of the 80s
Only the Hoff in his car would raise the bar
It affected my vision. Hey, I was a kid on a mission ….
That world of distraction had an addictive attraction

Colors on the ceiling… connected with a feeling
There’s nothing more appealing than the colors on the ceiling

Let’s never be afraid and just let the music play….
5. Redemption Waves
6. My Blood

We try to keep everyone calm
While you were waking up a storm
You put your principles aside
And you set the world on fire
Don’t understand the way you always force your hand….

Ridin’ on ridin’ on … redemption
Ridin’ on ridin’ on … redemption
Ridin’ on ridin’ on … redemption waves

You came too close when you took that lethal dose
But you survived the guilt that almost got you killed
You must have known when you chose the path
There would be a chance you’d end up dead

CHORUS

Reverie…. Forever young
Reality….. Forever gone

Glorified thoughts, you think that all will change
In reality a virus that’s burning up your veins

You’ve defeated your depression
So glad to see progression
Contained and confined… you left it all behind

CHORUS


Come in, come in …follow the light
Don’t be afraid, we’re here to hold you tight
Welcome my friend , let the ride begin….

My blood, my soul, my love…my goal

Hello there, little one….your journey’s just begun
Start to breath and love to live …
Soon you will learn how to forgive
There are a thousand ways to cross this maze,
This labyrinth of lust and sin…

A home that is the cornerstone
This is a place where you’ll never be alone
A listening ear, a shoulder to cry on
This is the place …. free of fear

There will be obstacles, but also pinnacles
Disappointment, but also miracles
Euphoria and all-time lows
Something withers……………. the other grows

7. Descending
8. From the Moment

My inner voice is calling out
It’s asking me to face the crowd
The outer world feels very strange
It’s asking me to make a change

What is it I have to say….What is the hand I’m forced to play?

Descending, descending…from the air you walk upon
Descending, descending…from your self-proclaimed throne
Appearances can be deceptive
So are words, not worthy to forgive

So it’s been said, don’t cut the only thread
Or you’ll be lying on the floor….
Thinking… what am I doing it for
Pride before the fall, here is your wake-up call
Get your feet back on the ground
And take a good look around.
It might feel kinda strange,
but it’s time to make that change….
There’s no one left to blame…
It’s you who needs to change
You flicked the switch, you made the click
The welcome light consumes the shade
No more living on the edge of the blade
You made the click, it’s time to shift….

Descending, descending…from the air you walk upon
Descending, descending…from your self-proclaimed throne
Appearances can be deceptive
So are words, not worthy to forgive
No more roaming in the shade
No more living on the edge of the blade
You made the click, time to shift….


From the moment you won’t let it go
There’s this feeling that starts to grow
In the name of desperation
You lead a life in isolation
It’s feeding off your needs , once it burns the next you bleed
It’s draining all your energy, destroying all that’s meant to be

Hanging on…. on the promises in the songs of yesterday
Can’t be the one responsible for what happened in those days

From the moment you won’t let it go
You’re in your world, all alone
Stuck inside your private hell
Waiting for the day you will get well
You should be breaking out of this cocoon
Don’t wait too long, cuz we’re leaving soon

CHORUS

Lick your wounds, heal yourself
Reset your goals, save yourself

Step by step, day by day …. You try to find your way
You’re closer now then you’ve been before
You’ve crawled back from the floor
Step by step, day by day …everything will be OK

CHORUS

Lick your wounds, heal yourself
Reset your goals, save yourself

9. Looking Back
10. Morning Sun

The end of Fall, the days are getting shorter
It’s nearly dark and I just woke up
Please bring me light and bring me warmth
Should I get up and find the real
Or turn away and lay my bones to heal

Lookin’ back, stuck in what you need to forget
Lookin’ back ,to drown in your own regret

So thrilling… Should be the start of a new beginning
But who’s winning when you wallow in your own complaining
A tiring song ‘bout a painful soul, without her I can never be whole
It’s a broken record…. Over and over again

Chorus

It’s the time of year when resolutions bring out the fear
Promises you cannot keep, depriving you of sleep
It’s the time of year, lookin’ ahead to something new
You’d better take a chance and join the happy few

Lookin’ back, stuck in what you need to forget
Lookin’ back ,to drown in your own regret


Wake up and smell the roses
Clear blue sky, our families nearby
Utopian dream under our noses
Still wondering why I almost start to cry
Weak in the flesh, weak in the bones
Hard to resist, hard to condone
Don’t blame the things you hold dear
A new day’s begun, a battle of one
Everything’s looking clearer…
In the morning sun, in the morning sun

Bed time, here comes trouble
Close your eyes, let the struggles begin
Ponder, reflect and react
Let’s all hope our dreams stay intact
Weak are the words, when(they’re) totally absurd
An impossible plan, hard to understand

A storm within is breaking out of your skin
An aching wound’s leaving us marooned…

I believe in a world without fear, where people are free and God leaves us be
Freedom of choice, the sound of your own voice…we’re all waiting for the morning sun
