Track Name: Proclaim
Out standing in a field with nothing to bring
No special song for me to sing
Then this oil was poured on my head
I was chosen to be king instead
I was called to Proclaim

You’ve got to Stand
Stand and shout it
Stop thinking about it
And proclaim
You’ve got to Stand
Stand and shout it
Sing your loudest
And proclaim

On this mission, oh what a beautiful day
I was knocked off my horse along the way
There’s no sight in my eyes
Until I finally realized
I was called to Proclaim
Track Name: Reach
Reach out
Touch the marks in his hands
Tell him your plans
Tears and screams and demands

Stand at the edge of your soul
Your restless and feeling cold
Question everything that you know
That you’ve been told

Reach, reach out to him
The last verse is not where the story ends

Climb to the top to reach so high
It’s not enough to get by
Let go and close your eyes

Reach when you remember why
Reach when your eyes cry
Reach with your heart
Reach

Reach, reach out to him
The last verse is not where the story ends
Reach, reach out to him
The final verse is where we dive further in
Track Name: You Took Me Back
As I lay down with rain on my head
And all the pillars I had counted on were dead
The rain blew down and I was ashamed
My heart remembered love no this tired game

Storms come down and leave me bear
Cold overwhelms I’ve reached my end
Were these storms, storms at all
Or were they clouds in my head

Could I go back back?
Could I go back back?
When I was to blame
Could I go back back?
Could I go back back?
Would I be the same

As I finally stood and looked down the road
Mercy grabbed me and grace overflowed
The path seemed so far, but I’d find a way
Soon I was running, but you met me half way

Oh, were these storms, storms at all
Or were they clouds, clouds in my head
The storm has passed and now here I stand
The skies are now empty, you reached out your hand

You took me back
You took me back
When I was to blame
You took me back
You took me back
And I’m not the same

I’m not the same
You took my shame
Track Name: Lately
Once upon a time I held my breath
And listened until there was no air left
But the sound swells from deep inside
Nothing left but to move aside

Your words, your words
A beautiful sound

Lately my ears have found a way to be open
Lately my eyes have found a way to be open

I hold the candle steady
But It burns my skin
And my ears as I’m listening
Newly opened eyes begin to sting
As the light first begins to pour in
Track Name: Draw Me A Picture
Saw a picture of a rose on a dusty hill
Hold it to the light until
The subtle tones so consistently
A picture of a rose so simply

Draw me a picture of a perfect scene
And the colors in between

Colors in my eyes and I behold
Confusion everything turns gold
A rose on a hill for all to see
Verse and the chorus and everything in-between

Draw me a picture of a perfect scene
And the colors in-between
Draw me a picture of a perfect scene
And the colors in-between
Track Name: Apple & A Tree
Surely it’s a tower that you seek
The tallest mountain and the tallest peak
I need a ladder just to see
Over these words that speak

How could be you found me in this place
I came to see that it was grace

An apple and a tree
That where you found me

Everything that you said
Put an apple on my head
Candy coated caramel red
Something fell and hit my head

Of the fruit from which I’ve fed
Left with empty hands instead
Track Name: Plastic Crown
When I was a king, you were impressed
You were impressed by the way that I dressed
I dreamed of a kingdom shiny in scene
But the shininess was all in my dreams

My fake plastic crowns comes to end when it hits the ground
My fake plastic crown makes no sound
My fake plastic crown kingdom, come to an end
Don’t drag me down

Smoke blew up and it mystified
Smoke blew up and it burned my eyes
Escape through the secret door
Shuts behind, it was no more

You see, you see in me
This thing that I cannot see
But I know, you look inside
And you will heal my selfish pride
Track Name: Even If I Knew Before
Look down at the map in my hand
Every street I could imagine in my little head
Compare this to where I stand
Every direction, every turn has
Lead me to where I am

But I know who I am

Even if I knew the score
I would walk through the same door
Even if I knew the end
Even if I knew before what was in store
I would do it all again

I look down in the rain
Ink is spilling and
My drawings and lists go down the drain
I can’t explain
No feeling of missing
Just feelings of comfort
I can’t explain

I could imagine
I could imagine

But I know who I am

Even if I knew the score
I would walk through the same door
Even if I knew the end
Even if I knew before somewhere there was something more
I would do it all again
Track Name: Next Time
Next time, I’ll be stronger
Next time, I’m greater
Next time I’ll know
I’ll know just what to say
Next time I’ll learn from my mistakes

Next time, I’ll be taller
Next time, I’ll hold on longer
I’ll be rock planted in the ground
I’ll be a place where virtue can be found

Make next time, this time and don’t wait for tomorrow
Make next time, this time and the rest will follow

Next time, I’ll be a leader
Next time…
I’ll be rock a place for you to build
Waiver not, hold on until

Next time I’ll know just what to say
Next time that’ll be my day

I want you to know
I’m not letting go
So, please save me
Track Name: Steal Me Away
I woke up today, full of sorrow
I woke up, my own way
All my plans, my ambitions
I want and choose my own way

Steal me away to Your Mercy
Steal me away to Your Mercy

Your Mercy is like drops of rain
It melts away my frozen heart
It keeps me on the straight and narrow
And it brings me back when I’ve been astray

Steal me away to Your Mercy
Steal me away to Your Mercy

And I know it’s hard to let it go
But I know that I will be yours forever more
