Lost (Live)


I’ve been traveling this road many a long day’s night

Wandering further and further away from this life

I’ve been drifting slowly down a river of lies, searching for some shred of truth to heal my withering heart

If you care to know my destination, then simply follow after

For I know not where I’m going, only where I’ve been

Pushed off the edge, down into the bottom

Where I lie, bruised and broken for my sin

How long this vessel will hold, is a question without answer

For life at the bottom is nothing short of cancer

Slow to destroy, but quick to progress

In this endless cycle of pain, I wonder…

When shall I rest?

Inspiration (Live)


It comes and goes like the wind

Breathing into the flames of hearts, sparking wildfires to consume the soul

Sometimes it is gentle, soft in coercion

Other times it is violent, giving birth to madness

A friend to many

A foe to few

It is the foundation of beginnings

The creator of ends

Wishes of the Hopeless Dreamer (Live)

Wishes of the Hopeless Dreamer

Tell me a story filled with romance

Give me a tragedy steeped in history

Bind me a book soaked in lies, show me a prince covered with thorns

Tell me the world is full of mysteries; give me the edge of a star

Send me on a journey to the moon

Bring me the sun and break the sky

Write me an ocean filled with words, and drown me with love beneath the waves
