Track Name: My Mountain
My Mountain

My mountain, it’s always been there
Maybe you can’t see it, Lord knows I can
My mountain is a world outside
I locked my door and mourned a love that had died

But the spirit grows when the winds of change blow in
I might fall, but I’ll get up again

My mountain, the wind begins to moan
I’m battered and broken, there’s still a ways to go
When the night is bearing down on my soul
I call on a friend to help me lift this heavy load

‘Cause the spirit grows when the winds of change blow in
I might fall, but I’ll get up again

My mountain, the story of our age
There’s always something standing in our way
Gonna climb my mountain, it’s about time
Just sit back and watch me walk this crooked line

Going up my mountain
Going up my mountain
My mountain

I’ll get up again
I’ll get up again
I’ll get up again
Track Name: Down To The Ocean
Down to the Ocean

So much for the leaving, so much for good timing
Surely this is not the way
Bound for open highways, broken headlights and dirt trails
And these towns look all the same

When I make it down to the ocean
I’ll toss the overcoat behind me and jump on in
Hear the hum of the tides in motion
Let the waves wash away my failure
To come back new again

In silent sorrow, comprehending nature
Angel of mercy watches over me
The dreams I cling to, just far enough out of reach
That’s the beauty of a dream

When I make it down to the ocean
I’ll toss the overcoat behind me and jump on in
Hear the hum of the tides in motion
Let the waves wash away my failure
To come back new again

When I make it down to the ocean
I’ll toss the overcoat behind me and jump on in
Hear the hum of the tides in motion
And the waves wash away my failure
To come back new again
Track Name: Dreams
Dreams

Dreams come in the morning
Dreams come at night
Dreaming ‘bout you honey and that’s alright

We’re given second chances
I finally see the light
The best things come from a higher place
You no longer have to fight

Don’t listen to that devil trying to tear us all apart
Listen to the song in your heart
All you gotta do is do it
Though, they say it’s all been done
But you ain’t done…yet
Tell them to go to hell when you ring your bell

Dreams come in the morning
Dreams come at night
Dreaming ‘bout you honey and that’s alright

Dreams come in the morning
Dreams come at night
Dreaming ‘bout you honey, and that’s alright
Track Name: Survive
Survive

I am here, just as I am
I ain’t got nothing to hide
And I’ll do everything I can
I’ll give you my life

Right or wrong
Your gonna do what’s best for you and no one else
I’ll be by your side
Survive
Take the time to heal yourself
You’ll always be a light

Even the best of men go down the road to nowhere
Every day, I begin again
And pray the lord my soul to bare

Right or wrong
Your gonna do what’s best for you and no one else
I’ll be by your side
Survive
Take the time to heal yourself
You’ll always be a light

Maybe this is all I get
Turning back, it could mean death
I gonna give all I’ve been given
And be the man that you know best

Right or wrong
Your gonna do what’s best for you and no one else
I’ll be by your side
Survive
Take the time to heal yourself
You’ll always be a light
Track Name: The Great Mystery
The Great Mystery

It’s too late to wait and see
The wind whispers low
Taking time for the time that’s passing
Look how much you’ve grown

Every breathe that you are breathing is a river to the sea
You wait behind the garden wall for the revealing of great mystery
The great mystery

High on a hill out on the edge of town
You sit down on a rock
Looking out for miles into the beyond
Thanking God for what you’ve got
And the good fight you have fought

Every breath that you are breathing is a river to the sea
Out from behind the garden wall is a revealing of great mystery
The great mystery

Every breath that you are breathing is a river to the sea
Out from behind the garden wall is a revealing of great mystery
The great mystery
Track Name: Only Love
Only Love

You are here and you are gone
We are born and we grow
On this road to heaven, we stay together
Some roads we walk alone

Looking for each other through the flowers
It’s the only love we know

When we meet, It’ll be so fine
You come out of the dark and into the light
Until then, when that day comes
You’ll keep on moving with the sun

Looking for each other through the flowers
It’s the only love we know

Lying awake at night praying in the dark
I see that star

Looking for each other through the flowers
It’s the only love
The only love we know
Track Name: Brave
Brave

It was then he started moving, a shadow he did cast
While the one who loved the most poured a toast to the old ghosts that have passed
What is and what is not are always playing in your mind
Hard-wired hearts leave a mark down the broken bloodline

There’s another way, I just know it

‘Cause tomorrow will move on from yesterday
I know that through the fear I will remain
Brave

Pushed and pulled, taking sides
The price is high for mending wounded pride
When times got tight, you learned to fight
They say that without dark you can see no light

Now your brothers and your sisters seen you hit the wall
Then they send you something to break your fall
Like a friendly conversation from hello to au reviore
Mercy and grace in this world ain’t ever too far

There’s another way, I just know it
‘Cause tomorrow will move on from yesterday
I know that through my fear I will remain
Brave
Brave
Track Name: Heroes
Heroes

Endless information in the palm of your hand
Gonna need an education to start a rock and roll band
Wild imagination, a keen eye on the scene
And one hell of a good luck charm
That ain’t all your gonna need

All of your heroes have already paved your path
Your bound to find yourself following their tracks
‘Cause nothing else makes you feel like that

It’s a big ol’ world out there, a man needs to see it all
Find out what he’s made of, should he answer that call
Truth will find us in time, no matter how far you run
Some days we are together, some days you’re the only one

All of your heroes have already paved your path
Your bound to find yourself following their tracks
‘Cause nothing else makes you feel like that

All of your heroes have already paved your path
Your bound to find yourself following their tracks
All of your heroes have already paved your path
‘Cause nothing else makes you feel like that
Track Name: New Frontier
New Frontier

Wild things roam, some never come back again
You open your eyes and hear the morning train
Some things I remember to the finest of detail
Now the dust has settled, unfamiliar tracks on the trail

Something always told you
No mercy is found here
You left and started over
In the new frontier

We stand on distant pastures
You’re gonna have to answer for what you did
The police on the scanner, it’s best you keep hid
If the road you travel leads you to the farthest shore
I hope you come unraveled from self-doubt and scorn

Somethings always told you
No mercy is found here
And then you started over
In the new frontier

Something always told you
No mercy is found here
And then you started over
In the new frontier

In the new frontier
Track Name: Calling All Cars
Calling All Cars

Searching for the unseen
Living in the in-between
I try and find the words for what I’ve had to learn

Calling all cars
Out from behind the bars
One by one, we keep going

Between shadow and light
A fire burning inside
I walk on my own, through a world I used to know

Calling all cars
Out from behind the bars
One by one, we keep going

It’s brand new day
Nothing and everything has changed
I look to the sky for the answers I can’t seem to find

Calling all cars
Out from behind the bars
One by one, we keep going
Track Name: Tell Me What Else You Got
Tell Me What Else You Got

I guarantee you haven’t seen what I’ve seen
I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy
The face of death staring back at me
Tell me what else you got

I walked through fire, never got burned
There was danger around every turn
For a time, my language never left the tongue
Tell me what else you got

The gods were watching
The angels walked beside me
I’ve got nothing to fear
You never know where you’ll find me

Everyday, I wake and live with your loss
Staring out the window, hear the tick of the clock
They say that life, it don’t ever stop
Tell me what else you got

The gods were watching
The angels walked beside me
I’ve got nothing to fear
You never know where you’ll find me

I ran with the bulls and left them in the dust
Went up Mount Everest, but it wasn’t enough
Going from the grave, straight to the top
Tell me what else you got

I stayed a week at the American Trade Hotel
Saw the Islands of San Blas and the Panama Canal
In Casco Viejo, I’m alive right now
Tell me what else you got

Tell me what else you got
Tell me what else you got
