Patience (iTunes Bonus Track)
. . .


You're throwing everything you have at me.
Cheap shots, low blows, will you ever let it go.
You're so pathetic, give it a rest.
You're not gonna win, you're never gonna.

You love the sound of your own voice.
And the crown of death upon your head, come on.
You and all your royalty, on the edge of infamy.
You're going to taste my fist.

You're so good at stretching the truth
into a sugar coated lie.
Everyone takes a bite.
I have been dining with the enemy.
It was a wolf in sheep's clothing, now it's so clear to me.

I've had enough of your games.
If your not trembling you'd better be.
Cause we're gonna be the end of you.
I've had enough of your games.
I'm gonna show them who you really are.
I can tell you right now, it wont be pretty.

I can't convince anyone, anything.
Provoking the anger of, a jealous god.
Still you spin a web of lies, fear, lust, pride, greed and shame.
You said no one, oh, you said no one escapes the pain.

I've had enough of your games.
If your not trembling you'd better be.
Cause we're gonna be the end of you.
I've had enough of your games.
I'm gonna show them who you really are.
I can tell you right now, it wont be pretty.

I'm a coward not a fighter, disguised as a lover.
In disguise, in disguise.
For so long now, you held me down.
You held me, you held me down.
You held me down.
You held me down for so long.
But its not gonna last.
Cause I can see right through your beautiful eyes.

I've had enough of your games.
If your not trembling you'd better be.
Cause we're gonna be the end of you.
I've had enough of your games.
I'm gonna show them who you really are.
I can tell you right now, it wont be pretty.

You're throwing everything you have at me.
Cheap shots, low blows, will you ever let it go.
You're so pathetic, give it a rest.
You're not gonna win, you're never gonna.

My world is falling apart
What a fool, I never saw it coming
Oh no no
And my life
Is like a card house
a delicate construction
With no regard for the wind

Everybody's changing
Oh everybody's changing
And I don't know
No no no no
How much more I can take

I thought I had
Everything under control
I couldn't've been more wrong
I thought I have
My world in my hand
(can't understand)
Until I woke from this foolish dream

I put so much of myself
In everything else
Yea, in everything else
It was a dream
The scene
Torn at the seams
Revealing a nightmare

I thought I had
Everything under control
I couldn't've been more wrong
I thought I held
My world in my hand
(can't understand)
I'm woke from this foolish dream

I thought I had
Everything under control
I couldn't've been more wrong
I thought I held
My world in my hand
until you broke my heart
In everything I'd love had changed

Coffee and cigarettes
can't save me now
It's the hope and catching all the hope in the world
World and I'm hoping for
I'm hoping for

I thought I had
Everything under control
I couldn't've been more wrong
I thought I held
My world in my hand
(can't understand)
I'm woke from this foolish dream

I thought
I had
Everything under control
I couldn't be more wrong
I thought
I have
My world in my hand

Every single lover's story

. . .


Puts on a pretty dress and wears it all over town
All over town
Says "I can give what you want
Escape from the pain
My bed's already made"

Well, I was searching for something but didn't know what
And I found a whore on the corner of the street
She wrapped her arms around me and she kissed me on the mouth
She said "there's more where that came from
Whoa baby, there's more"

Like a lamb to the slaughter I followed her home
Into bed with a stranger
No one has to know
No one has to know

Puts on a pretty dress and wears it all over town,
All over town
Says "I can give what you want
Escape from the pain
And nobody has to know"
Stay away, stay away
She wants your soul
She'll take your life
Stay away, stay away
It's all secret love
And the fastest way to loneliness

I can't get enough
But my soul is rotting
What have I become?
I can hear their screams so clearly now

With a shake of my face I awoke and saw my fate
All alone in the darkness
Chained to the devil's gate

Puts on a pretty dress and wears it all over town,
All over town
Says "I can give what you want
Escape from the pain
And nobody has to know"
Stay away, stay away
She wants your soul
She'll take your life
Stay away, stay away
It's all secret love
And the fastest way to loneliness

I hear the beautiful voice of wisdom
Joined by the angels, she sings
Well her words are sweet like honey
And sour to my stomach
She says, "Get on your feet
Come dine with me in heavenly places
Where you can hear the angels sing"

Puts on a pretty dress and wears it all over town
All over town
Says "I can give what you want
Escape from the pain
And nobody has to know"
Stay away, stay away
She wants your soul
She'll take your life
Stay away, stay away
It's all secret love
And a slippery road to hell

. . .


I've been jumping from the tops of buildings
For the thrill of the fall ignoring sound advice
And any thought of consequence
My bones have shattered
My pride is shattered
And in the midst of this self inflicted pain
I can see my beautiful rescue

I'm falling more in love with every single word I withhold
I'm falling more in love with every single word you say
I'm falling head over heels for you

I've been dancing on the tops of buildings
At the top of my lungs I'm singing you a song
"Don't you leave me alone"
My bones were shattered
My pride lay shattered
Well I'll trample my pride
and tell the whole world dance with me

I'm falling more in love with every single word I'll withhold
I'm falling more in love with every single word you say
I'm falling head over heels for you

Again well I'm crying out,
"wash my hands, these bloody hands, oh open my mouth and I'll sing"

I'm falling more in love with every single word I'll withhold
I'm falling more in love with every single word you say
I'm falling head over heels for you

I've been dancing on the tops of buildings,
With you.

. . .


I can hear their song from miles away.
It's carried in the wind.
Its melody is sung to me in miracles.
The sun rises over the sea.

When I hear their love song.
I don't understand.
From out beyond the shadows.
I can hear it calling me.

Honestly, if I'm honest with myself.
I've cried myself to sleep.
Crying out, 'Oh God, where are you?
Can you hear my scream way up there.
Through the clouds, in heaven?
Do you even care?'
And honestly if I'm honest with myself.
I hate the song they sing.
It's like salt on an open wound.
But I can't get it out of my head.

This melody kills me.
It's out of key and foolish.
But I think I might just like it.
If I could just get past my pride.
I turn my head and look away.
'Cause you know it hurts to see the light of day.

When I hear their love song.
I don't understand.
From out beyond the shadows.
I can hear it calling me.

Honestly, if I'm honest with myself.
I've cried myself to sleep.
Crying out, 'Oh God, where are you?
Can you hear my scream way up there.
Through the clouds, in heaven?
Do you even care?'
And honestly if I'm honest with myself.
I hate the song they sing.
It's like salt on an open wound.
But I can't get it out of my head.

The whole world hates you.
The whole world hates your song.
Oh God I'm a sinner and I think I wanna sing along.
The whole world hates you.
The whole world hates your song.
And I wanna sing.
I wanna sing along.

Heaven's not so far away.
I can hear its melody from here in the waiting room of hell.
Well heaven's not so far away.
I can hear its melody calling me.
Calling me home.

Honestly, if I'm honest with myself.
I've cried myself to sleep.
Crying out, 'Oh God, where are you?
Can you hear my scream way up there.
Through the clouds, in heaven?
Do you even care?'
And honestly if I'm honest with myself.
I hate the song they sing.
It's like salt on an open wound.
But I can't get it out of my head.

And honestly, if I'm honest with myself.
I've cried myself to sleep.
Crying out, 'Oh God, I need you.
Can you hear my prayer way up there.
Through the clouds, in heaven?
Do you even care?'

And honestly, I've never really been honest with myself.
Well this melody heals my wounds.
And I can't get it out of my head.

. . .


Baby I'm afraid.
Oh God I'm afraid.
What will people say?
What will they say?
Well some days I couldn't care less.
And others I'm scared half to death.
Don't wanna work so hard just to have a heart attack.

Throw my hands in the air.
As if it really matters what they say.
Can I just be myself?
Well I won't forfeit my soul for a pretty penny.
Are you listening?
Do I make myself clear?

We'll drive so far.
From one town to the next.
We got something to say.
Is anybody listening?
Does anybody care?
Yeah we got something to say.
Well some days I couldn't care less.
And others I could use some rest.
Don't wanna drive so hard just to get it off my chest.

Throw my hands in the air.
As if it really matters what they say.
Can I just be myself?
Well I won't forfeit my soul for a pretty penny.
Are you listening?
Do I make myself clear?

No I won't play the fool for you.
No I can't play the fool.
I've just got too much to say.

Throw my hands in the air.
As if it really matters what they say.
Can I just be myself?
Well I won't forfeit my soul for a pretty penny.
Are you listening?
Do I make myself clear?

. . .


Hey, hey I could run away.
Run away from everything I know.
I know I shouldn't feel this way.
Because really, I gotta get away from me.

Is there any hope for a boy like me?
Is there any, any hope for me?

There's gotta be.

And yeah, well I can hear you say,
"Anything is possible."
But my life is such a mess.
And we've already been through this.
And though we've been here before.
Anything is possible.
So many years all alone in the dark.
Well it's time to get out.
It's time to get out.

Hey, hey I danced away.
Countless nights with demons out of sight.
And I took to their foolish games.
But really, I gotta get myself out of this scene.

Is there any hope for a boy like me?
Is there any hope for me?

There's gotta be.

I'm so ready to be free.
And yeah, well I can hear you say,
"Anything is possible."
But my life is such a mess.
And we've already been through this.
And though we've been here before.
Anything is possible.
So many years all alone in the dark.
Well it's time to get out.
It's time to get out.

I'm hoping on an overwhelming grace.
I'm praying for this dream to come true.

And yeah, well I can hear you say,
"Anything is possible."
Even cleaning up a mess like me.
Well it's time to get out.
It's time to get out.

And yeah, well I can hear you say,
"Anything is possible."
But my life is such a mess.
And we've already been through this.
And though we've been here before.
Anything is possible.

And yes, I'm a mess.
I'm lonely and dirty.
But it's time to get out.
It's time to get out.

. . .


There's a man on the side of the road,
Left for dead people passing by, turn their head
There's a man on the side of the road to Jericho - needs a friend.
Oh we all could use a little more loving, couldn't we?
So come on love and give your love away with me

Hold nothing back like you've nothing to lose
Love is all you have but you don't have a clue what it's costing you

There's a man on his way to a church,
Avoids the eyes of a dying soul, turns his head
There's a child on the side of the road to Jericho - needs a friend
Oh we all could do a little more loving, wouldn't you agree?
So come on love and give your love away with me

Hold nothing back like you've nothing to lose
Love is all you have but you don't have a clue what it's costing you

If loving were easy it wouldn't be love
If loving were easy it wouldn't be love
If loving were easy it wouldn't be love
Oh will you give your love away?

If loving were easy it wouldn't be love
If loving were easy it wouldn't be love
If loving were easy it wouldn't be love

Oh love with all you have (I'm gonna give away love)
Hold nothing back
Oh love with all you have (I'm gonna give away love)
Will give your love away? (I'm gonna give away love)
Will you give your love away?

. . .


Who would I be?
Where would I be going if I didn't have you to shake my face?
Why do you care?
Why do you care so much?
Your love's such a stretch for my faith.

You don't let go easily.
No, you hold onto me tight.
And it's just what I need.
To get me through the storm tonight.

Whoa, I don't have to be afraid of the wind.
And that's good to know.
'Cause I've heard it all before.
But I'm walking on water now.
In the midst of a storm.

My life fell apart and you were right there.
The fire turned my whims into smoke.
I choke on your words that somehow make sense.
And I dance with a joy only found in the pain.

You don't let go easily.
No, you hold onto me tight.
And it's just what I need.
To get me through the storm tonight.

Whoa, I don't have to be afraid of the wind.
And that's good to know.
'Cause I've heard it all before.
But I'm walking on water now.

Whoa, I don't have to be afraid of this sinking ship.
And that's good to know.
'Cause I've heard it all before.
But I'm walking on water now.

Take me away to a heavenly place.
Rescue me my love, my saving grace.

Whoa, I don't have to be afraid of the wind.
And that's good to know.
'Cause I've heard it all before.
But I'm walking on water now.

Whoa, I'm singing in the rain.
Well that's a joy I've never known.
'Cause I've heard it all before.
But I'm walking on water now.

. . .


I find myself so tangled up.
In all of our ideas.
We could run away, get a job.
In a small town on the beach.

We can dream but I can't stay.
It's a small world.
But I'll still sail much too far away.
Could it be, it was destiny?
You and me, an ocean between?

I find myself a bit of a mess.
Life just isn't fair, is it?
I miss the years when we were young,
Innocent and so naïve.

We can dream but I can't stay.
It's a small world.
But I'll still sail much too far away.
Could it be, it was destiny?
You and me, an ocean between?

Pride burns like wildfire.
Smell the smoke rising.
It's the anthem of hell.

In your eyes I saw a hope.
Where you wrote us off as Pharisees.
You were so relieved.
Don't listen to anything these demons have to say.
We're older now and it's time to grow up.

Breathe in, breathe out.
Throw yourself in the sea.
(It's so much bigger than us.)

We can dream but I can't stay.
It's a small world.
But I'll still sail much too far away.
Could it be, it was destiny?
You and me, an ocean between?

Don't listen to anything they have to say.
We're older now and it's time to grow up.

In the heat of another busy day he said,
"What on earth am I doing here anyway?
I've spent all my attention on the world and its distractions.
I've no time for reflection.
No, I just go, go, go.
It's just go, go, go."

In the heat of a conversation it was said,
"I've got all these good intentions.
I just don't have the time."
We all wish for more.
And more hours in a day.
But I think it's safe to say.
We just need to breathe and slow down.

Slow down, slow down.
Slow down and ask yourself right now.
Slow down, you're falling asleep in traffic.
Slow down, you're losing your soul.
Slow down, where are you taking yourself now?

I just wanna be happy.
But I can't quench my thirst.
I'm always missing something.
Maybe I just need more.
Or maybe I should just breathe and slow down.

Slow down, slow down.
Slow down and ask yourself right now.
Slow down, you're falling asleep in traffic.
Slow down, you're losing your soul.
Slow down, where are you taking yourself now?

When I fall asleep I dream of happiness.
In numbers and dollar signs.
And when I awake, it's only one prize away.
I've never known anything else.

Slow down, slow down.
Slow down, where are you taking yourself now?

. . .


I know, I know,
I know the secret to your happiness.
Oh I know, I know.
Take a deep breath, there's only one way.
Give all you have away.

Well you've wasted.
You've wasted so much time.
Trying to buy what you can't buy.
(You can't buy happiness)
And if you really wanna live.
I'm gonna have to let it go.
I'm gonna have to give it all.

Oh God it hurts.
But when I count the cost.
It all seems worth it all.
God, it's a fight and I just might.
I might just let it all go.

The only thing that I've been feeding.
Is my American dream.
But it's never satisfied.

We're all overweight and comfortable.
But I saw a need on my big screen TV.
It shook me and questioned my integrity.
And it called me to be more than I'd ever dreamed.

It called me to give my whole life.
Well that's what I'm gonna do.

. . .


It's time we get out of here
We've been dancing down a seemingly beautiful road to trouble
Well everything feels so right
Though we know it's downright wrong
Though we know it's downright wrong

Oh, you're so beautiful but I can't take what's left

And on that day we'll say,
"Hey, baby we've made it, we're on top of the world."
On that day we'll become everything we've dreamed of for so long to be
On that day, baby.

Lets shine like the stars in a dark and dirty sky
Side by side we'll watch the perfect sunrise
We've been waiting through a seemingly endless night
Well when the sun comes up I'll be all yours and you'll be all mine

And on that day we'll say,
"Hey, baby we've made it, we're on top of the world."
On that day we'll become everything we've dreamed of for so long to be
On that day, baby.

And your name sounds so good when said with mine
Maybe we can run away and leave this troubled world behind
Well, well that's a stupid, stupid, stupid thing to say
Cause we're so young but we're not foolish, honey
Surely we can wait

On that day we'll say,
"Baby, we've made it. We're on top of the world"
And on that day we'll become everything we've dreamed and longed for so long to be
On that say, baby
