Track Name: Paul and Silas
I'm gonna write a song and have not but a word down can you feel it, can you feel it?
And youre gonna sing along and not know but a word, can you feel it, can you feel it?

Hearts they move and silence proves you don't know what to say.
Intentions fade, but grace it stays, its all washed away.

Feel the air around you. Breathe and feel your lungs move.
Its a miracle you're here, its a miracle you're here.
And time it moves so quickly. The clock it keeps on ticking.
So whats your purpose here, oh whats your purpose here?

Its all about you.
Scream at the top of your lungs.
You're free, you're free.

Hearts they move and silence proves you don't know what to say.
Intentions fade, but grace it stays, its all washed away.

You see your soul is really leaving.
You were made for more than just existing.
So whats your purpose here, oh whats your purpose here?
And time it moves so quickly. The clock it keeps on ticking.
So whats your purpose here, oh whats your purpose here?



Paul and Silas were praying, they were singing, prisoners listened as the prayed and sang.
Paul and Silas were praying, they were singing, prisoners listen as they pray and sing.
Paul and Silas are praying, they are singing, children listened as they prayed and sang.
Paul and Silas were praying, they are singing, children listen as they pray and sing.
Paul and Silas were praying, they are singing, children listen as they pray and sing.
Track Name: Infection
I have done a crappy job at doing a simple thing, like saying I'm thankful for all the time you spend pouring into me
.

And if grace and redemption mean that I am truly free, then Jesus take my broken hands from putting my chains back on me.


I have done crappy job at doing a simple thing, like saying I love you instead I let my walls close in on me.


And if grace and redemption mean that I am truly free, then Jesus take my broken hands from putting my chains back on me.

(chorus)
I'm so sorry
I cant be all that I said that I would be.

I wish I could close my lips.
Instead I let the poison drip.
I wish I was so much less defensive.
In Christ in me I'm free to not be so anxious
In Christ in me I'm free to not be so anxious
In Christ in me I'm free to not be so anxious.

And if grace and redemption mean that I am truly free, then Jesus take my broken hands from putting my chains back on me.

Its Grace that fills my lungs, its bloody hands around my broken chains as he hold be face and says," youre not the same, I love you, I love you."

(chorus)
I'm so sorry
I cant be all that I said that I would be.
Track Name: Black Keys
I can write a song with the black keys too, let your heart sing. (x2)

Its 4pm you're getting out of bed. Its another day done and said.
Its another day its a losing battle, its a battle that's already been won.
You're living your life completely as an addict.
Addicted to everything that's not addicting.
You're frustrated and its contradicting.
You're living your life but you're not alive.

I can write a song with the black keys too, let your heart sing. (x2)

Woe is, Woe is, Woe is me (x2)

We want, we want, we want more and where are you God, why don't You care?(x2)
Well Summer days bring smiles, and winter nights bring warmth, fall brings colors, colors and spring brings life and more. (x2)
Yet still we're always asking, "God why don't You care?" To the sparrow he brings shelter, so much does he bring you. (x2)

I can write a song with the black keys too, let your heart sing.
Track Name: Rest
I'm finding out my rest is not in what I thought and all of the walls I've built are never coming down. They're coming down. (x3)

And My people, have committed two evils. They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living streams.
And they hewed out, broken cisterns for themselves. Broken cisterns that can hold no water, hold no water


Oh God I pray, oh God I pray would you lead me, direct me, to more to more of You.
Oh God I pray, oh God I pray would you lead us, direct us, to more to more of You.


And My people, have committed two evils. They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living streams.
And they hewed out, broken cisterns for themselves. Broken cisterns that can hold no water, hold no water.


I wanna drown but not in pills, and my college education may not pay the bills. And even if it did, would it be worth it?(x2)
For our hearts and souls they bleed, and they long to be set free but our broken cisterns only leak black streams. (x2)

And My people, have committed two evils. They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living streams.
And they hewed out, broken cisterns for themselves. Broken cisterns that can hold no water, hold no water.
Track Name: You Chose Me
I don't understand, what You have planned, but I know its good, know its good.

And I know you are good, and Your word is more than enough.
And I know you see me, through my lying heart of greed, and I know
You chose me, You chose me.

Time starts to slowly fade, and I still look back on those dark summer days.
Were You there? Were You there?

And I know you are good, and Your word is more than enough.
And I know you see me, through my lying heart of greed, and I know
You chose me, You chose me.

Oh God, oh God what have I done?
I murdered Your one and only Son.
And truth be told, I sort of despise this heart made of stone and these eyes of lies.

And I know you are good, and Your word is more than enough.
And I know you see me, through my lying heart of greed, and I know
You chose me, You chose me.




Oh Child I formed your lips and your hands, I know your mistakes and I know all your plans (x2)

And I still chose you.
And I still chose you.
And I still chose you.
Track Name: Church
Find me, here in this place. And save me again.
I am finding it hard to believe that I am truly forgiven.
My sins so deep, my lies so thick, oh fill me Your presence.

Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord our God Almighty.
The elders sing, the creatures chant, Your Holiness it never ends.
And we're all so acceptant. Of this idea but never grasp it.
Flashes of lightening and rolls of thunder so here we stand
in awe and wonder.

And when our God comes, He will not be silent.
A fire burns, right in front of Him.
A powerful storm surrounds Him, a powerful storm surrounds Him.

And heaven it flows, the grass and the snow.
The fish in the sea, the air that we breathe, creation is screams.
But still we sing......

Prove yourself to me oh God, who are You?
You created all the galaxies, who are You?
You know the stars by name oh God, who are You?
Reveal Yourself to me oh God, who are You? (x2)


Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord our God Almighty.
The elders sing, the creatures chant, Your Holiness it never ends.
And we're all so acceptant. Of this idea but never grasp it.
Flashes of lightening and rolls of thunder so here we stand
in awe and wonder.
Track Name: Dance With Me
Dance with me and take my hand, I will fill you up again and again.
And I know, you cant see your next step. I'll lead you, towards that place of no regret.

I'm at your feet begging you to see Me.
Even in your darkest place, I'm screaming light into your veins.

In circles, in circles, you're running so fast.
You mind is a canvas but your paint it wont last.

Youre waking up empty, you're canvas is empty (x4)
You're waking up empty, while I sing.

I'm at your feet begging you to see Me.
Even in your darkest place, I'm screaming light into your veins.


Hear Me scream so softly, you're worth it, you're worth it.
Feel your tired heart beat, Ill make it new, Ill sing to you. (x)

I'm at your feet begging you to see Me.
Even in your darkest place, I'm screaming light into your veins.
Track Name: Romans
No in all things we are more than conquerors through Him (x4)
Through Him who loved us.

For I'm convinced that
Life nor death, nor angels nor demons, nor past nor present, nor any powers.
Nor Height nor depth, nor anything else in all of creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God, in Christ our Lord, our Lord.

Rip it apart and tear it out, this beautiful cancer inside my cells, its inside my minds, that's where it hides.
Or maybe its just another episode, a beautiful weakness that enables me to show that I'm convinced...

That life nor death, nor angels nor demons, nor past nor present, nor any powers.
Nor Height nor depth, nor anything else in all of creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God, in Christ our Lord, our Lord.


"Holy," the angels scream from mountains high and valley's low.
"Run away!" The demons scream, "Jesus has the victory."
Track Name: War
Over hills and mountain tops they're fighting
Over seas and oceans deep they're dying.
So you turn on CNN and your mind tells you its just pretend
And you look at your facebook screen, its simply a false reality
That people are dying.
