- Track Name: Atrophy
V 1: Time lapse photograph. From your birth to your heart attack.
Small child. Big eye smile. Trusting. Loving. Twenty years have passed.
Chorus: There's a crack inside his head he's sitting closer to the edge than he really ought to sit. Everybody stands around no one even makes one sound, it's every man alone tonight.
V 2: Another broken home. A lover for beauty alone. Ten years have passed
Chorus: Now the wheels are coming off. Poor and broken mind is lost, off the edge and on the rocks. This stuff happens every day, but for grace we go that way, but for grace we never change.
- Track Name: St Augustine
V 1: If the crucible has come and gone, if everything seems fine. The pendulum will swing here and though your heart will break dear...
Chorus: I'll move like the wind when you're out there looking for a friend and I'll meet you in St. Augustine.
V 2: If love is like the rain in May then loss is August drought. And though you're feeling pain now, just you keep hanging 'round.
Chorus: I'll move like the wind while you're out there looking for a friend and I'll meet you in St Augustine.
- Track Name: Keep Holding On
V 1: Sometimes it don't matter how you play your cards. 'Cause some days a diamond always beats a heart. I'm trying to gain some altitude to ease my troubled mind.
Waiting and praying. I'm not gonna quit on you though weary of this fight.
V 2: They say you just can't keep a good man down. But I say it's just as hard to keep one around. I'm trying some altitude to ease my worried heart.
Keep holding on...
- Track Name: Je Suis Ici
V 1: I've had a chance to think about choices that I've made. About the life that might have been had you not agreed to stay.
Chorus: It's not as if I had no choice inside our desperate love, in the space before promises you leave when you've had enough. Encore je suis ici...
V 2: Without regret or second guess I intend to stand unfolded in the happiness of a family man.
Chorus: It's not as if I had no choice inside our desperate love, in the space before promises you leave when you've had enough, encore mon petit cheri je suis ici...
I am here...
- Track Name: Nuclear Winter
V1: All the wars were fought, the people smiled and settled down. They never had a chance, they never knew themselves, they went to court, they fought at home.
V2: Then someone decided an emperor to be. He marshaled girls and boys and promised victory, they marched and killed, they marched and killed...
Chorus: Fight to beat your vengeance. Fight to know forgiveness. Fight to beat the fight inside your soul. Reach out for redemption captive in the mercy, a very different kind of letting go
