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
