MARCH (2011)

LYRICS


March

Light and dark a blur
Prey to some cruel saboteur and you march
Some wars can’t be won
Somehow you knew it all along but you march
You don’t lay your weapons down
Your feet numb to the ground


March
To your own drummer
March
Beautiful brother
Wherever you are
The beat of your heart will
March


Meaning distilled
To simple truths and will and you march
Lost is any choice
But lost is not your voice and you march
What’s broken can’t disguise
A tireless brilliant mind


March
To your own drummer
March
Beautiful brother
Wherever you are
The beat of your heart will
March


March with the pain and regret far behind
March with the rhythm of love on your mind
Let peace be the place that you find


March
To your own drummer
March
Beautiful brother
Beautiful brother
Wherever you are
The beat of your heart will
March




All Too Human

Standing on a pillar
Righteous and so proud
My own voice says who are you kidding
And knocks me right on down


Who do you think you are
Playing by twisted rules
Judgement underneath your breath
Is judgement no less cruel
Hold up the mirror fool


Miles and miles to go wandering the road
Days I manage only tiny steps
Aimless nothing but a hypocrite
I am out to find that horizon line
Envy falls away and all that’s left
Peace and meaning at an intersect
The corner of surrender and accept


Let me do it justice
Walk with honesty
Give so much more than I take
With pure humility
Slay the selfish me


Miles and miles to go wandering the road
Days I manage only tiny steps
Aimless nothing but a hypocrite
I am out to find that horizon line
Envy falls away and all that’s left
Peace and meaning at an intersect
The corner of surrender and accept


All too human am I
I swear I’m going to rise above, rise above me


Miles and miles to go wandering the road
Days I manage only tiny steps
Aimless nothing but a hypocrite
I am out to find that horizon line
Envy falls away and all that’s left
Peace and meaning at an intersect
The corner of surrender and accept




Shelter Be Damned

We wanna to be good
We wanna to be better
We wanna stand
Like one only can
With a whole lot of time
And a whole lot of weather


Hard rains fall
Cold winds blow
Nothing is concealed
Bright sun shine
On cracks and lines
The true shape of things is revealed
When out in the open we stand
Shelter be damned


Life’s richest patina
Is born to us by the lessons
Etched by the seasons
The mystery the reasons the endless desire to
Keep asking questions


Hard rains fall
Cold winds blow
Nothing is concealed
Bright sun shine
On cracks and lines
And the true shape of things revealed
Out in the open we stand
Shelter be damned


Defying the urge to search for protection
Exposing the truth in the beauty of lifes imperfections


Hard rains fall
Bitter winds blow
Nothing is concealed
Bright sun shine
On cracks and lines
And the true shape of things revealed
Out in the open we stand
Shelter, shelter be damned




The Bullet

A shot in the dark just whistled on by
I stare at the celing ask myself why


A hair’s breadth from it all taken away
I see it in my minds eye night and day
What to believe


Justice or goodness
Or just not quite time yet
Who knows what it could be
Did I dodge the bullet or did the bullet dodge me


Gravity, physics, the wind or dumb luck
Or a band of angels watching over us


Do I drop straight down onto my knees
Humbled in the presence of a blessed reprieve
What proof do i need


Fate’s good intention
Divine intervention
Lord knows just what it means
Did I dodge the bullet or did the bullet dodge me


Cause there’s ever some finger, ever some trigger
A round locked and loaded somewhere in a chamber
What can we do but give thanks and do right
What can we do but do good and sleep tight


Waitin’ and wonderin’
Leaves me only questions
We’re not be privy to what it was
Do we dodge the bullets or do the bullets dodge us


Walking this world with everything to be grateful for
Walking this world and who could ask for anything more




Gratitude

I can race through a day
I can live in the rush
And what can you do, what can you do


I can lie in the dark
Say life isn’t fair
And what do you do, what do you do
But teach me everything and…


The only thing the only thing
In every brilliant day
The only thing the only thing
When all is stripped away
Gratitude


I can give you my money
I can lend you hand
And what do you do, what do you do


I can give you kiss
I can give you a song
And what do you do, what do you do
But give me miracles yeah and…


The only thing the only thing
In every brilliant day
The only thing the only thing
When all is stripped way
Gratitude
Gratitude


A promise do right
A whisper goodbye
Carry me with you


The only thing the only thing
In every brilliant day
The only truth the only truth
When all is stripped away
Gratitude
Gratitude
Gratitude
