Track Name: Story
out of the blue I find my song
out of the cold I know
see outside my window sill
more is never enough for them or you

all this time is passing by me
through a hole in the sky
out of touch your mind is numb
let youself die
move on and overcome

it feels so good to move and shake the ground
when the voices go la la la la la
this is story goes on and on and on
i don’t know when the end will come

out of sight it’s gone
out of sight it’s gone
out of sight it’s gone
and the story goes on
out of sight it’s gone
but the story goes on
on and on and on
and the story goes on
out of sight it’s gone
but the story goes on
on and on and on
the story goes on

it feels so good to move and shake the ground
when the voices go la la la la la
this is story goes on and on and on
i know the end will come (yes the end will come)
Track Name: Halo
i see the halo on your head
how do you think they feel
when you’re around

let it go
let it go
let it go
it’s gone
let it go
let if go
let it go
it’s gone

face the facts the strawmen are dead
it’s useless how you try
for you the truth is far

let it go
let it go
let it go
it’s gone
let it go
let if go
let it go
it’s…
gone
just like it never was
it’s gone
just like it never was
it’s gone
oh oh oh oh oh

tally the kills
until all is dead
oh
for every curse
there’s a halo on a strawman
oh
let it go

oh oh oh oh
let it go
Track Name: Bridge
say it isn’t true and I’ll believe you
yes I’ll believe you
it isn’t a question of if it was meant to
if it was meant to be
I want to make you happy
so happy and so free, so free
oh
I want to make you happy
so happy and so free
free to be in love with me you’ll see

we’ll fly back up to bainbridge island
to relive our history grabbing all those moments
we were in heaven changing our perception
of the gloom that now resides in our bodies

but can we really do that
no I don’t think so
instead we’ll just kneel here and pray today

we’ll fly back up to bainbridge island
to relive our history grabbing all those moments
we were in heaven changing our perception
of the gloom that now resides in our bodies

but can we really do that
no I don’t think so
instead we’ll just kneel here and pray today

say it isn’t true and I’ll believe you
yes I’ll believe you
it isn’t a question of if I need you
cause I do need you
I want to make you happy
so happy and so free, so free
oh
I want to make you happy
happy and so free
free to be in love with me

I want to make you happy
so happy and so free
Track Name: Arise
get up off of your mountain
and follow your bliss
death cannot conquer your soul

this is a call to love
a call to love
dry bones come alive

arise
my brothers don’t be afraid
arise
my sisters

this is a call to love
a call to love
dry bones come alive
come alive
dry bones come alive

come alive
come alive
come alive
come alive

come alive
