LYRICS

Freedom 

It's been feelin' like a battle 
more and more when I go outside 
People bound and shackled down 
to a track we're callin' life 
I'm wanting free 
Freedom 

I escape to my imagination now 
just to get me by 
But gettin' by just to fall in line 
not quite what I had in mind 
Oh, I'm wanting free
Freedom 

Til the constant learns to change 
I'm gonna get away 

(Chorus) 
I'm going wild 
for me
I'm going wild 
completely 

When that sun comes up I'm taking off 
Gonna make the train jump its track 
No more fighting for survival 
No more taking another's path 
Oh, I'm wanting free 
Freedom 

Til that constant learns to change 
I'm gonna get away 

(Repeat Chorus) 

In life there ain't no second chance 
no time to do it again 
So take your risks and take your chance 
And break far from that plan 
and run free 

Til that constant learns to change 
I'm gonna get away 

(Repeat Chorus) 

I'm going wild 
For me

--------------------

In the Middle 

I've got this feelin' 
I'm not the only one no more 
who is out to settle every score 
who is demanding be fair 

To the us that 
were maybe given less than chance 
or the we that privilege can't advance 
I'm coming for theirs 

(Chorus) 
From the ones who rule with an upper hand
and those who are giving it all to chance 
til that world keeps spinnin' 
I can't keep letting them win 

You've got this way with your words 
I swear you're tauntin' me 
maybe you're just wanting me to be crazy 
and out of control 
So you can disassociate yourself 
put it all on someone else 
then blame when it's wrong 

(Repeat Chorus) 

I think you're underestimating this overtaking 
baby, hesitating won't be making 
any of us ever come clean 

So before you're off to declare war 
divide ourselves up even more 
stand in the middle and rise 

(Repeat Chorus)

Until that whole world shifts 
In the middle is where I stand 

--------------------

Paradox 

Returning exhausted from a path I 
traveled through 
A journey I called life and I 
shared with you 

Love was leading us no matter how 
young and blind 
When we got lost we left our 
ever-after behind 

(Chorus) 
All that I need to know 
is were you ever even really there 
All that I need to know 
is were you ever even really there 

All that I need 
Is truth really just for those 
who believe
Is honest only for those you don't know 
to deceive 
Is a promise kept if you don't know 
when it breaks 
Do we give forever knowing 
it's a time we cannot make 

(Repeat Chorus) 

(Bridge) 

Is a love that won't hurt 
A love that won't shame me for who I am 
A love that won't laugh 
and leave me for better because they can 

So coping to lessons that life isn't 
as it seems 
and love may be only for fairytales 
and those who dream 
And trusting is entering a battle 
unarmed and alone 
and real isn't real 
it's a paradox that we'll 
never know 

(Repeat Chorus) 

(Bridge)

Is a love that won't hurt 
A love that won't laugh 
A love that won't shame me for who I am 

--------------------

On My Own 

Let's begin, where we start 
is on that line between 
your passion and tryin' to be something you're not 
meant to be 

As you move on slowly 
your clock ticks on 
there's no time to stall 
and no way to turn it all around 
if you're wrong 

(Chorus) 
But I can't deny it 
for too long 
you know I'm trapped in it now 
What I give 
is a lifetime and then some 

As you sway side-to-side now 
you're balancing over 
only dreams 
and wondering just how bold and brave 
crazy can be 

(Chorus) 

Still I'm hopin' it all 
won't fall down it won't crumble 
I'm regretting now 
everything I gave and what I'm paying for 
when I said 
I can make it on my own 

The choice is yours 
but be cautioned 
if you choose wrong 
and bet it all 
you might just learn how naive 
all that hope can be 

(Repeat Chorus) 

Still I'm hopin' it all  
won't fall down it won't crumble  
I'm regretting now  
everything I gave and what I'm paying for  
when I said  
I can make it on my own 

--------------------

Thy Will Be Done 

Forgiving rain 
falling gently on my skin 
are you washing 
are you washing me clean 

Cuz I've been sick 
and need to be redeemed now 
so wash me 
wash me clean I pray 

All I've found 
another victim to the ground 
from this disease 
this disease driving us all mad 
Voices cryin' out 
Oh God, save me 
but silence 
silence is all we hear 

Thy will be done 

(Chorus) 
Silence 
I can't take no more 
No heavens 
No heavens are calling us home 
Violence 
I can see around me 
It's coming 
It's coming for me right now 

Sing softly to me 
Amazing Grace 
I can know I'll be found 
Lie your hands upon me 
Blessed are they pure of heart 
For they will come to know God 

Thy will be done 

(Repeat Chorus) 

So, my will be done 

--------------------

Cry 

Try 
is all I can do 
In times 
when fairness won't come through 

I saw my world collapse 
as I became 
the victim of consequence 
consumed with blame 

I confessed 
a secret I should not have shown 
My truth 
was more diseased 
than I could have ever known 
I watched it spread and infect 
all those I loved 
til I was forced to face 
life alone 

(Chorus) 
Oh, I've been there before 
pounding that door screaming 
let me in 
but no one ever came 
so all I'm saying is sometimes 
all you can do is cry 

Losing yourself 
to the curse of worthlessness 
Disguising all you can 
trying just to fit in 

Leaves a wound that swells 
when you recognize 
the only place you're safe 
is where you hide 

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
