Track Name: The Protector
They ran, they ran, they ran, they ran through the water, through the puddles in their minds

And then they thought, they thought of all the things they found within each other


One blind to all his faults, he will ruin, he will ruin this forever

Protector of the shelter is no longer what they call him
If they search a little harder they might find that it is better just to let, him, go

So, she ran she ran to a place in the arms of another,
Where she hid her face and hoped to be freed from the keeper of her freedom

Too blind to see what all, was ruined, for the end of destruction


The protector of the shelter is no longer what they call him

If they search a little harder they might find that it is better just to let, him, go

The protector of the shelter is no longer what they call him

If they search a little harder they might find that it is better just to let, him, go
Track Name: The Voyage: Part I
She wanted to get away
Kept a worried eye on the animal
She wanted to sail away
Snuck on to the ship called the Black Ball

The dingy sails, the weathered wood
Made her feel like maybe she
Shouldn't get caught on board, and dumped on deck
Girl must watch out for the ship wreck

She saw the crew wasn't swimming
The keepsakes float all around her
She heard only wind and the rumbling
Cling to shore before the shiver

The dingy sails, the weathered wood
Made her feel like maybe she
Shouldn't get caught on board, and dumped on deck
Girl must watch out for the ship wreck

Sail away my dear,
Into the black sea trapped under the seaweed
Float away my dear,
I will not forget you but I will not, come near
Track Name: The Voyage: Part II
Here is a girl, stuck on an island
Imprisoned by waves, enduring this journey
The cries have all gone
With the sun

She will run through the trees, run through the vines
They can’t bring her down she’s one of a kind
Hunger was her constant companion
All through the day she was climbing, climbing
You may not be prepared for what life has to throw
Bu with sea water in your eyes you’ll learn quickly, you know

So here is a girl, stuck on an island
Imprisoned by waves, enduring this journey
You haven’t lost hope until your hands are cupped, begging on your knees
Fueled by desire for her survival
Yearning for the date of their arrival
Never giving in to the fears of the island

She will run through the trees run through vines
At the bottom of a hill you can only get higher
Holding onto ensure she’d see the next day
If you can press on, you’ll only get stronger
Back on your feet, pressing forward
A glimpse in the distance, your heart feels restored

But if you’re like the rest, there won’t be a boat
You must give it your best, and choose your end
Track Name: Where Is Your Smile
I was thinking one day, about all the people who lost their way
Can you tell me, can you tell me, where is your smile?

You will find the right way
You will find the right day
And I will, be here
And I will, be here

I was thinking about you
And I was hoping you were too
Can you help me, can you help me find my smile?
Track Name: Hey You
Why don`t you tell me more stories 'bout that past of yours im listening
Rural lives, exciting times I don`t know where this is going
Like my elementary years your guidance is to me ever lasting

Hey you listen here
I’ve been listening this whole time
Hey you sit down here
Let me tell bout how you’ve changed mine

The seasons keep rollin by and I can’t tell if you see we’ve been changing
The weathered faces look at us and I know we’ve been switching places
But even when you’re old and grey I’ll cherish every word you say

Hey you listen here
I’ve been listening this whole time
Hey you sit down here
Let me tell bout how you’ve changed mine

Moving up
Times are changing now
Listen up
I want to show you how

Hey you listen here
I’ve been listening this whole time
Hey you sit down here
Let me tell bout how you’ve changed mine
Track Name: Mother
Oh I went back home
Not a thing has changed
I could never live back in that place

Not a day goes by
That I forget
The things he’s done, and the things he’s said

Mother, you were so strong
Mother, when everything was wrong
Mother, you held your tongue
For far too long

And I wish you the best
And I can’t thank you enough
For putting up with my shit while I grew up

And you deserve love
To be treated with respect
I know one day you’ll have it, you just gotta wait up

Mother, you were so strong
Mother, when everything was wrong
Mother, you held your tongue
Mother, you were so strong
Mother, when everything was wrong
Mother, you held your tongue
Track Name: Not My Home
This house is not my home you must understand
I can't treat it like my own, oh please understand
The light will not turn on when I walk down the stairs
What could be inside the closet, lions.. tigers.. bears

There's something in the way
There's something holding me back
No betray, just bring me to my home
Home...

The joy in the backyard does not come any more
If I run and fall down will you be there to kiss my sores
And if they take you away to far away place my dear
I am coming to find you, please oh please have no fear

There's something in the way
There's something holding me back
No betray, just bring me to my home
Home...

And if I go, go, go back in time, time, time will I
See the faces I used to know
And if I go, go, go, chase my mind, mind, mind will I
See the you I used to know

There's something in the way
There's something holding me back
No betray, just bring me to my home
Home
