Track Name: Throughout
tear in my shirt
a favourite of mine
faded and frayed
muddied and patched
yet I wear it like an ornament
with confidence and pride

tear in my heart
aches all the time
trembling and tense
crimson and raw
yet it beats on with tenacity
and capacity for love

tear in my thoughts
terrified mind
shaking and scared
swirling and dark
yet I reason through adversity
to distant chimes of hope

tear in my soul
pretending i'm fine
battered and bound
strung up and scarred
yet I grasp the reigns of hopefulness
with fervor and with faith
Track Name: Not the Sparrows
not the sparrows, but the vultures get their way
not the children, but adults show naivete
not the beggar, but the passerby can thrive
not the hopeless, but the fortunate survive

if I could soar like the eagles and make it right
I would I would
if I could sing like the robin with peace in mind
I would I would I would

not the suffering, but the flourishing get aid
not the outcast but the tyrant can tirade
not the exiled but the neighbour is received
not the honest but the liar is believed

but the gentle mind, with the purest thoughts can sing
or the poets with the honest lines they bring
or a painter, in the beauty that they see
these bring us hope, pull us from calamity
Track Name: Wither
all my work is withering
planting crops to watch them fail
in spite of these two blistered hands
all my work is withering

i'd rather drift than face the day
my wretched limbs they seem so frail
like sisyphus repeats his chore
i'd rather drift than face the day

solace just beyond my reach
solace just beyond my reach

when i'm sleeping in my tomb
all my fragile thoughts made pale
my epitaph will still remain
when i'm sleeping in my tomb
Track Name: Amazing Grace
amazing grace, how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me
i once was lost but now am found
was blind but now i see
