the fool

When people let you down, that’s when you learn to stand up.”

— Unknown

find tomorrow

Uncertainty is the refuge of hope.”

— Henri Frederic Amiel

Please don’t ever let me down  
I can see in your eyes you won’t always be around  
These days i wonder what I’ve got to do  
I’ve laid out all my cards and now you’ve got to choose  

Now I sit here the fool 
Taking stock of a life that only works for you  
As my dreams fade away 
Is this a mistake  
Can you tell me if your words are true  
Or I am your fool 
I am the fool  

Will your hand lift or pull down 
I’ve lost all of my control and my dreams may run aground  
Is it you and me that I’ve got to please  
I’ve built my own cage and handed you the keys  

Now I sit here the fool 
Taking stock of a life that only works for you  
As my dreams fade away 
Is this a mistake  
Can you tell me if your words are true  
Or I am your fool 
I am the fool  

Yeah we know things aren’t right  
Are you here by my side  
Is the past a reason to proceed and collide  
Can our two worlds be fused  
What should I hang on to  
What you need and I need will never align  

Now I sit here the fool 
Taking stock of a life that only works for you  
As my dreams fade away 
Is this a mistake  
Can you tell me if your words are true

Next sunrise  
That’s not yet seen 
Will it lead us from today  
Will it help us find our way 

Where are the roads not taken 
Where are dreams forsaken 
Feel them near and far 
Like a shadow in the dark 

On steady steps  
Thoughts race ahead 
To find tomorrow 

Be the light I see 
Find the place I seek 
Will you help me find tomorrow 

Roads not taken 
Dreams forsaken 
Feel them near and far 
Like a shadow in the dark 

Lay down my fear 
We’re so unsure 
How to find tomorrow  
Be the light I see 
Find the place I seek 
Will you help me find tomorrow 

Fall upon my knees  
Never to be free 
Will you help me find tomorrow  

Where are the roads not taken 
And where are the dreams forsaken 

Be the light I see 
Find the place I seek 
Will you help me find tomorrow 

Fall upon my knees  
Never to be free 
Will you help me find tomorrow

change

The more things change, the more they remain the same.”

— Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr

Children growing 
The whole worlds going 
Too fast for people to care 

To fill in pieces 
Some look to Jesus 
To keep their spirits aliv

But amidst all the change 
Much it stays the same 

Woo Woo Woo 
Woo Woo Woo 
Woo Woo Woo 
Much it stays the same 

The house you lived in 
The time were given 
Memories left behind 

The mountains give me 
A sense of sanity 
As they reach for the sky 

But amidst all the change 
Much it stays the same 

Woo Woo Woo 
Woo Woo Woo 
Woo Woo Woo 
Much it stays the same

You can succeed if nobody else believes in it, but you will never succeed if you don’t believe it yourself.”

— William J H Boetcker

Chasing a dream and you’re just trying to find your way
No one believes but you’re still gonna take your place
When everybody sounds the same
Does anybody out there know your name

Leaving your home ‘cause you know that you just can’t stay
Taking the road less travelled is the price you pay
You’ve always been misunderstood
You’ve always done the best you could

You’ll never stop trying
Keep your eye on the prize 

Chasing a break, Soon you’ll find your way
Searching to find your voice and have something to say
Now it’s time to take your place
We’ll shout it out loud ‘til they know your name
Destiny’s Rising

rise

The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.”

— Molière

Can you tell me your hero? 
Would I know their name? 
Can you tell me an answer that I need you to say? 
I have to find my own way 

Lessons I’ve learned to embrace 
So uncertain, what we will face 
Nothings easy, Hold on tight 
Sort the pieces of my life 
See the rising, in the sky 
Frame that picture, in my mind 

As I imagine all the moments of my life 

Wins Beneath my feet 
Lift that we all need   
And we will rise 
Rise 
Chaos brought to rein 
Success though all the pain 
And we will rise 
We will RISE 

Silent screams, as I build my frustration 
As my dreams are lost, they’re lost in translation

angels

Adults don’t make babies. Babies make adults.”

— Unknown

I breath, and they’re there 
I take, every moment for real 
I like, my reason for this 
I’d die, at the thought of life without them

I have no doubt for the first time in my life. 
Things are clearer than ever before 
I live each moment as my last 
I live my life for the angels 

Angels, Give me reason to live 
Angels 
A gift until the end 

I live, every step that they take 
And I know, they make my life complete 
I am, here for what they need 
And I will be there 
There when they call to me 

I have no doubt for the first time in my life. 
Things are clearer than ever before 
I live each moment as my last 
I live my life for the angels 

Angels, Give me reason to live

reaching

I’m on the hunt for who I’ve not yet become.”

— Unknown

Reaching for a place that’s real for you to feel secure, a life anew 
We crave a new beginning, work to stop the same old ending.

Reduce the volume of noise that you don’t need 
Take down the portrait of a life that cannot be 

Feeling envy, for something worthy 
Reaching to achieve 
Reaching to believe 

Pieces come together in a maze of choice, a reasoned voice 
Now we pay the price to make things right, I choose my path, the die is cast 

Reduce the volume of noise that you don’t need 
Take down the portrait of a life that cannot be 

Feeling envy, for something worthy 
Reaching to achieve 
Reaching to believe

where we started from

Sometimes going back to the beginning is the only way to move forward.”

— Unknown

I got burnt flying close to the sun 
One big mistake and the damage is done 
Can you empathize 
Tales of truth and stories of lies 
Hard to trust when you’re broken inside 
And now I testify 

Ah Ah Sometimes there’s no reason 
Ah ah give me something to believe in 
Ah ah you're the air that im breathing 

Theres a hundred million billion stars in the sky 
Coulda, shoulda, woulda, waste of a life 
Eyes in the front to see what will come 
Back to the place where we started from 

Take a step don’t be afraid 
Live in shadows of mistakes we made It will be alright 

Destined for a fate you deserve 
Hide your eyes, don’t expose where it hurts Can you realize? 

Ah Ah Sometimes there’s no reason 
Ah ah give me something to believe in 
Ah ah you're the air that im breathing 

Theres a hundred million billion stars in the sky 
Coulda, shoulda, woulda, waste of a life 
Eyes in the front to see what will come 
Back to the place where we started from

truth

Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.”

— Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Faith in disbelieving the things you cannot see 
Place of known delusion, a truth you cannot keep 
Foundation cannot be built on lies, a task you can’t complete 
Testified, you obfuscate the answers that you seek 

Take this apart, 
I know you're feeling nothing but scars 
You will be taking 
All of the parts building a story of shooting stars 
Feeling 
Nothing can change the sequence of your misleading 
Why don’t you start telling us the truth 

It's in your eyes that you behold, the time is drawing near 
Your will be done, the war is on, suppress your darkest fear 
Wrestle with your inner fate, the home that you have felt 
Blackened soul, it will unfold, I can’t unwring the bell 

Take this apart, 
I know you're feeling nothing but scars 
You will be taking 
All of the parts building a story of shooting stars 
Feeling 
Nothing can change the sequence of your misleading 
Why don’t you start telling us the truth

drinking alone

It is a queer thing, but imaginary troubles are harder to bear than actual ones.”

— Dorothy Dix

Drinking Alone

Never one to take big chances 
Living life within the lines 
Another good heart has been broken 
Leave the past without goodbyes 

And it don’t mean much, closed off you remain 
Once your soul I touch, you’ll never be the same 

I’ve been drinking alone with you tonight 
Passing stars as we dream across the sky, Alright 
Sorting photos of a nonexistent life 
And I’ve been drinking alone with you, tonight 

Take my hand I’ll show you 
Thoughts you have are untrue 
Theres more to me than meets the eye 

Friends long gone how time flew 
Ends that come way too soon 
Leave the past without goodbye 

And it don’t mean much, closed off you remain 
Once your soul I touch,you’ll never be the same 

I’ve been drinking alone with you tonight 
Passing stars as we dream across the sky 
Sorting photos of a nonexistent life 
And I’ve been drinking alone with you tonight

circle depends

The balance of power is the scale of peace.”

— Thomas Paine

As movement continues to burn in our time 
A tower we build over the course of our lives 
The min I can take is the max you can give 
We should never pretend that your life is ours to live 

The roles that we choose, define legacy 
The mistakes that we make can fulfill destiny 
I know that there can’t be a simple way out 
The road that we paved is just so filled with doubt 

Can you hear the side, that you’re not on? 
Can you take a life, can you say you’re wrong? 

The circle depends on our reason 
The circle depends on our dreaming 
Its not what you say, it’s all what you do 
The circle depends on you 

The answers we seek will guide our design 
Wisdom eludes us as we watch for the sign 
In spite of the grays, we live black and white 
Why do we do things we know are not right? 

The power to save but the will to destroy 
A leader decides and armies deploy 
I think that we’re lost and fallen off course 
The circle depends on a balance of force 

Can you hear the side, that you’re not on? 
Can you take a life, can you say you’re wrong? 

The circle depends on our reason 
The circle depends on our dreaming 
Its not what you say, it’s all what you do 
The circle depends on you 

How many lies will it take til we learn 
That the tower is built from the life that we earned 
While the truth can create but someday it will end 
God don’t build in straight lines and the circle depends 

Can you hear the side, that you’re not on? 
Can you take a life, can you say you’re wrong? 

The circle depends on our reason 
The circle depends on our dreaming 
Its not what you say, it’s all what you do.
The circle depends on you

There is no greater power and support you can give someone than to look them in the eye and with sincerity and conviction say: I believe in you”

— Ken Poirot

Hollowed ground we tread upon 
I seek something greater than this 
I need something from you yeah 
I hope you can give.

Come on and take me right now

Hear me speak Is it truth to you 
If you believe in me I’ll believe in you

Somehow you already know 
A piece of hope mistaken 
You may never own

I hear the choice you’re making

Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes”

— Mahatma Ghandi

Time, what’s on your mind 
Take the abstracts of your grand design 

Drive, where you can thrive 
Take the roads that no one seems to find. 

Hold the ground that you achieved 
Be the one you need to be 

I’m Free, to take my chance 
Tear down the fence 
I want to be 
Free, to build my faith 
To take my place 
I want to be 

Lead, say what you mean 
Fear takes hold absent is belief 

Dream, take what you need 
No ones going to give you anything 

Hold the ground that you achieved 
Be the one you need to be 

I’m Free, to take my chance 
Tear down the fence 
I want to be 
Free, to build my faith 
To take my place 
I want to be

epic

The best way to predict your future is to create it.”

— Abraham Lincoln

I’ve been wrong, I’ve been right 
Tried my best, in my eyes 
We can learn, I can hear 
Things you say, words that sear 

At a time to remember and a moment to savor 
At a place to remember you’ll never be the same 

Truth, sounds just like a lie 
Something gravity, pulls you from the sky 
It was an epic day, lived in an epic way 

Take my past, paid my dues 
Express myself, start anew 
Running low, flying high 
Find my place, in this life 

At a time to remember and a moment to savor 
At a place to remember you’ll never be the same 

Truth sounds just like a lie 
Something gravity, pulls you from the sky 
It was an epic day, lived in an epic way 

Solo 

I look back, wonder why 
Carried fear, all my life 
Take my chance, seize the day 
Time is lost, find my way 

At a time to remember and a moment to savor 
At a place to remember you’ll never be the same 

Sometimes truth, sounds like a lie 
Something gravity, pulls you from the sky 
It was an epic day, lived in an epic way
