Track Name: Rest Assured
what is it about the night
that all our fears and burdens of life
seem so much more apparent
seem to find their merit
what is it that I can do
to calm the worst inside of you
restoring you to a place
a place of peace and truth

come what my my dear
I will be here to calm your fears
when daylight is obscured
with these words of mine
comes my presence for all time
you can rest assured

I will be by your side
despite the rising of the ocean tide
supplying you sturdy mooring
keeping you safe 'til morning
and in the midst of unyielding doubt
with unseen dangers all about
I will be around
to lift you to higher ground

come what may my dear
I will be here to calm your fears
when daylight is obscured
with these words of mine
comes my presence for all time
you can rest assured

what is this
the darkness is giving way to the dawn
we clasp our hands and breath with it's nearing
these nights they last so long
as this black is passing
our voices join in song
as we tremble at the feeling
of this the blessed morn

come what may my dear
I will be here to calm your fears
when daylight is obscured
with these words of mine
comes my presence for all time
you can rest assured
come what may my dear I'll remain
to calm your fears when daylight is obscured
with these words of mine by your side
darling you can rest assured
rest assured
Track Name: The Sanity, The Ground
Your voice, so still so small unable to be heard
in this noise I've conjured up to drown out every word
I refuse to face up to my mistakes even though they eat at me
like some mad race between myself and grace
it's me that I'm defeating

You are, the sanity, the ground
in this asylum in the clouds
no more embellishing the sound
Your voice, the only truth that I've found

despite our earthen plight we have hope renewed
for this life when sacrificed offers great produce
it seems so strange and yet so plain to progress we must remain
within Your will abiding still forsaking that which cannot be sustained

You are, the sanity, the ground
in this asylum in the clouds
no more embellishing the sound
Your voice, the only truth that I've found

You are the truth revealed
You are our hope that's sealed
You are our sure foundation
You are above our station

You are, the sanity, the ground
in this asylum in the clouds
no more embellishing the sound
Your voice, the only truth that I've found

Your voice, so still so small unable to be heard
in this noise I've conjured up to drown out every word
Track Name: Confessions
I'm sorry for the ways I've allowed myself to be overcome
I'm sorry I've been playing games in the mouth of the lion's den
I'm sorry I refuse the escape You are providing me
I'm sorry I am always testing Your capacities

I find that I've been filled with a hunger for these scraps and crumbs
when there's a lavish meal prepared for me by the hands of love
what is to become of these pearls that have been gifted me
taken from their place of prominence and lost at sea

Your revelation so soon will end this
with time this fallen world will realize

it's Your grace, something I taste and see
it's Your love, measured out consistently
it's Your hope, that keeps driving me
it's a shame, how much I need Your mercy

there's a quiver in my mouth chock full with words that are poisoned darts
there's a sliver in my eye so large it could break this life apart
there's a self-inflicted wound in my side I won't allow to heal
there's a version of myself I hide for what it may reveal

Your revelation so soon will end this
with time this fallen world will realize

it's Your grace, something I taste and see
it's Your love, measured out consistently
it's Your hope, that keeps driving me
it's a shame, how much I need Your mercy

where do I begin to regain that which I've given up
how can I undo the damage caused by my own lusts
these hands are searching this heart is yearning
You're the only one my God in whom I place my trust

it's Your grace, something I taste and see
it's Your love, measured out consistently
it's Your hope, that keeps driving me
it's a shame, how much I need Your mercy
it's Your grace...
it's Your love...
it's Your hope...
It's a shame how much I need Your mercy
Track Name: Words Unsaid
this time I won't, no I won't run away
yeah I've been locked away and I could us the sunshine
no need, no need to follow suit
my bags stay packed 'cause I can't bear to be without them
far away, I'm not, I won't be far away
give me enough time, I could change all the locks
there's a lot to do, no I'm not dropping any clues
the damage done could last me for a lifetime

and all the voices in my head
tend to leave all the hopeful words unsaid

we're all lost and we're not getting any better
no we're not getting any younger
children cry, we all laugh
the past convicts but we seem to know how to relax
wipe the tears from your eyes
there's nothing more than glycerin for dry eyes
I can't trust you 'cause I can't trust myself
you said a lot of things I know I could not do without

and the voices in my head
tend to leave all the hopeful words unsaid
and all the thoughts inside my head
convince me silence is better left unsaid

well I'll try, yeah I'll try
God-willing this won't be the end
so much is left unsaid
silence and all this dread
well I'll try, yeah I'll try
God-willing I might live instead
with all of this left unsaid
silence is left for dead
well I'll try, yeah I'll try
God-willing

this time I won't, no I won't run away
yeah, I've been locked away...
