Track Name: The Power of One
I saw you awake, hit the ground running,
being around you, got a share of your shining.
I learnt to see, to care, to strive,
watching you fearless I come alive.

So much I learn from mistakes that I won’t make,
I saw you took chances, now I will take.
I owe you everything I get
and I owe you even though we still haven’t met.
So much I learn from the fool I could be,
could fuck it up but it will never be me.
I owe you everything I get
and I owe you even though we still haven’t met.

You fell down, you dropped off the radar,
you came back harder, climbing the ladder.
Like all the odds I had to face,
made me the man to run my own race.

So much I learn from mistakes that I won’t make,
I saw you took chances, now I will take.
I owe you everything I get
and I owe you even though we still haven’t met.
So much I learn from the fool I could be,
could fuck it up but it will never be me.
I owe you everything I get
and I owe you even though we still haven’t met.

The power of one!

You got by and got things done,
so my own race I run .
You got by and got things done
and my own race I run.

The power of one!
Track Name: Not of This World
Ideas scorned, transmission blocked,
but this very dream is all that I got.
My only risk is being mocked
by those who’re too scared to give it a shot.

Give up on waiting, don‘t put life on hold.
Be in this world, but not of this world.
Give up on waiting, don‘t put life on hold.
Be in this world, but not of this world.

Holding the grudge, living in past,
to fool my pride, could make the dead last.
A second spent living someone else’s dream
I could live my own... and I won’t give in.

Give up on waiting, don‘t put life on hold.
Be in this world, but not of this world.
Give up on waiting, don‘t put life on hold.
Be in this world, but not of this world.

To clear the path, you’ve got to walk it.

Ten years from now will you really care
about the petty words, the laughs and the stares?
Will it really count for anything at all?
Or will you miss this dream you let so easily fall?

Now your turn.
Clear the path.
Track Name: High On Faith
A failure is a test that allows me to grow,
a doorway to my life, I know I have to give it a go,
A road less traveled, I go through the dust storm.
I know I’m alive when I transform.

Do you live or just stay alive?
Survive or thrive, survive or thrive.
Do you live or just stay alive?
Survive or thrive, survive or thrive.

When more emptiness and lack of hope I see,
I’m high on faith, much stronger bonds I build.
The sicker and uglier this world turns to be,
the more I believe that it can be healed.

Do you live or just stay alive?
Survive or thrive, survive or thrive.
Do you live or just stay alive?
Survive or thrive, survive or thrive.

I can always find an excuse
to stay in a box that feels so secure,
not to get my ambition bruised,
and spent a life like it was just a blur.
Track Name: Sense The Shift
Thousand of thoughts enter the mind, I need to keep my guard up.
They can be worse than a dreadful disease, in cage of sorrow and hatred I can be trapped.
Too many words, so little said... I need the pause my life relies on.
If I don't know where I'm at right now, how can I ever notice when I hit home.

More and more I absorb,
it makes my mind work worse.
My soul so disturbed.
I turn off this noise.

I turned off this noise made by my judgmental cries,
so rigidly bound to convention, that now I love to deny.
I need no foes to make me go on, I want to see more lives saved.
I don't seek to be better than any of‘em, I feel superior to my former self.

More and more I absorb,
it makes my mind work worse.
My soul so disturbed.
I turn off this noise.

Silence soothes me.
I can hear you.

Silence soothed me, much clearer vision grew.
I can hear you, I sense the shift in you.
“Where there was once one, there are now two.“
