Track Name: Waiting for the Light
The depths of the sky with the stars so bright, radiating light
Come be my guide in the chaos of the night
Dancing in the wilderness with the shadows of my ghosts
In this solitary time they don’t waste getting close

I’ve been waiting for the light to come
Pushing back the tales that lead on and on to numb
I've been waiting
I've been waiting for the light

I’m calling for strength to forge ahead, weathering the storms
Composed by dissonance meant to transform
Holding the complexities as part of the design
Each day I bend a little just tryin’ to feel alive

I’ve been waiting for the light to come
Pushing back the tales that lead on and on to numb
I've been waiting
I've been waiting for the light

Hurling all the stones to the river hoping one; one might float
Spinning through the whispers weaving their web, web of lies
Collapse into the willow as it shelters me holding the choke in the pit of my throat
Hoping the currents might inspire a release strong enough to carry me

I will wait for the light
I will wait for the light to come
Push back the tales that lead on and on to numb
I’m waitin’ for the light
Track Name: Echoing Your Prayers
When there’s clouds, you’ll be here
Carrying me through the storm
When this darkness surrounds me
You’ll send just enough light to remind me you’re near

Dance, soaring through the heavens
Feel the peace, the peace we all deserve
When holding hands with the angels as though they’re your sisters
Smile knowing the suns rays are echoing your prayers

When alone is all I feel
Missing you through and through
I find strength to fall and kneel
I start singing with you through my prayers

Dance, soaring through the heavens
Feel the peace, the peace we all deserve
When holding hands with the angels as though they’re your sisters
Smile knowing the suns rays are echoing your prayers

When times come and gone and your voice seems far
I’m gonna sing this song until I feel you sing along
Won’t be caught off guard thinking hope’s not ours
Your light’s still livin’ within as we press on and on

Dance, soaring through the heavens
Feel the peace, the peace we all deserve
When holding hands with the angels as though they’re your sisters
Smile knowing the suns rays are echoing your prayers
Track Name: Invisible
How does it feel to be a child forced to kill your own man?
Forced to flee your home in search of safety then stolen away and handed a gun
Ordered not to cry to preserve your own life, Beaten into the bush and told, march on

Child of War
Child of War
When we meet you your light follows us into the world
But you’re Still, Still Invisible

How did it feel the night you escaped the L.R.A. only to find your families long passed
Faith sustains you day to day as you’re terrorized by crimson dreams through the night
Starvation and AIDS try to send you to the grave. Who knows if you’re dead or alive

Child of War
Child of War
When we meet you, your light follows us into the world
But you’re Still, Still Invisible

Under African Skies we hear symphonies of laughter
Coming from war-torn souls
Under African Skies we hear the marches of dancing
Dancing on your bare soles

Child of War
Child of War
When we meet you, your light follows us into the world
No More, No More Invisible
Track Name: Modern Day Castaway
He strolls the city streets at dusk
Camouflaged in the alleys
Searching for refuge and a shoulder to trust
Glued to his father’s patterns
He screams I’m dying to bury these thorns

Come Rescue
My belief that this is fate
Come Rescue
I’m a Modern day castaway

Her clothes are worn and streaked with waste
Withering away slowly
Losing her temple to another stark man
Floating in toxic relief
She screams I’ll collide with heaven tonight

Come Rescue
My belief that this is fate
Come Rescue
I’m a Modern day castaway

Live to Love then seek to save only to fade
Live to Love then seek to save only to fade
We’re all dying for change

Come Rescue
My Belief That is fate
Come Rescue
I’m a Modern day castaway

They stroll the city street at dusk
Track Name: It Goes
Lost, I wait to be found
Found from the crowd, the crowd of voices in my head
Drown, Swallow this sound
‘Till I can find one voice, the voice that’s been underground

Scream await the release
Yearn to be close, yeah close to living again
Fade all that’s restrained
So I can start to feel, to feel the tides of the rise n’ fall

Well this cycle it goes
Wake n stand, thirst n fall
Well this cycle it goes
Repeating yeah, repeating
Yeah, This cycle it goes


Breathe and wake to the fire
Count all that’s lost and start the choir where it left off
I Lift, n’ Anchor my eyes
‘Till I can see through smoke, the smoke that’s clouded this song

Well this cycle it goes
Wake n stand, thirst n fall
Well this cycle it goes
Repeating yeah, repeating
Repeating yeah, repeating
Yeah, This cycle it goes
