Track Name: Ice Walker
Fall down,
Fall down they say
Crawl down,
To your place
Fall down,
Fall down they say
Low down, down
Just slip away
Track Name: Soldier
The changing time, can get you down
when you try to call her, will she be around?
the land is flat, it's not like home
the stereo crackles when it gets 4 below

CHORUS:
soldier, soldier
you've been there so long, yeah, you gotta be strong

the rocking horse, the gleaming sand
the thirsty bird that only drinks the colour black
the harvest's here, we fight the land
will you see her again, with the money in your hand?

CHORUS

Bridge
On better things, your heart is hung
On better things, your heart is hung
On better things

CHORUS
Track Name: Healers
This one
Is written for my people, we’re still hurting
Divided by the many lines of faith
Broken down and scattered ‘round
This nation
Want us to blend in to one face
Still trying to recruit the dominant race
But we’re not backing down

Chorus
We stand strong in our homeland
We be fighting for our freedom for the
Language of our children so they
Can walk with their heads high today
Can’t keep a red man down from
Helping his next man we stand
Strong on our frontline, defend
Our hearts and children

This one
Is written for my people to remind us
The hand can never hold us down as one
Growing strong, we look beyond
This nation
To place ourselves among the rest
The world is ours to do our best
But we’re not backing down

Chorus
We stand strong in our homeland
We be fighting for our freedom for the
Language of our children so they
Can walk with their heads high today
Can’t keep a red man down from
Helping his next man we stand
Strong on our frontline, defend
Our hearts and children
Track Name: The Storm
The Storms coming down on the day
Broken limbs and tears are swept away
Alone in thought I’m left to find my way
The storms been pounding down on me again

Chorus
La la la la dah day

The storms closing in on the day
Bursts of wind keep blowing the smiles away
I hide my eyes so I can’t feel the pain
The storms been pounding down on me again

Chorus
Track Name: Will I See
It haunts me like a memory
I just can’t shake from my mind
Young hearts belong to somebody
They didn’t take off and hide
Footsteps trace their path to be
So they walked alone, blind
No one knows what their eyes have seen
Or if they were traded in kind

When will I see you again, my friend
I don’t know where you are
When will I see you again, my friend
You seem so very far
When will I see you again, my friend
I don’t know where to start
When will I see you again?
…will I see you again?

I can’t shake all they’re telling me
We’re leaving one at a time
Broken from our unity
Unsure of who’s left behind
Voices fill the space in me
No chance to say our goodbye
Slipping through your memory
To dance alone in the skies

When will I see you again, my friend
I don’t know where you are
When will I see you again, my friend
When will I see you again?
…will I see you again?
Track Name: Disturbed
Just because you hold your hand
To shade the sun
Doesn’t mean that it’s not there
Why is it every time
I think of you
I’m pulling out my hair

And it’s got me disturbed, Man I feel so disturbed
Cuz your reality’s blurred

You have this way of taking everything I say
And twisting it around
My skies are blue
Then along came you
You seem to always bring me down

And it’s got me disturbed, Man I feel so disturbed
And it’s got me disturbed, Man I feel so disturbed
Blurred (you reality’s blurred)

Sometimes I sit and think to myself why
Just get out of my life
I’m so wrapped up in you
Even though I’m thru
I can’t find the fight

And it’s got me disturbed, Man I feel so disturbed
Cuz your reality’s blurred
Blurred (your realty’s blurred)
Track Name: Nobody Knows
Lay me down now
Lay me to the ground
Lay me down now
Lay me down in the shade

I wont be afraid
No I won’t
I won’t be afraid
No I won’t
I won’t be afraid
Lay me down in the shade

And nobody knows, nobody knows
Where we’ve been, or where we go
Nobody knows, nobody knows
Where we’ve been or where we go
Nobody knows

I won’t let you look away anymore
I won’t let you look away anymore
I won’t let you look away anymore
Track Name: Sometimes ft. Keolya
Sometimes it’s easier
To walk away
Like we’ve never known, known struggle when we stay
Sometimes it’s easier
Living day by day
Moving on and on we go… so far away

(Sometimes)
No day goes by where I don’t fear the fight
(It’s easier)
Seeking in you I lost part of my life
(To walk away)
I can’t go on with you out of my sight
(Easier)
To weak to leave the comfort of the night

My friend, we’ve realized
there’s just no room for compromise
I can’t justify the over and over
Can’t say we never tried…

Now we go so far away
No more tears may fall today
Now we go so far away
No more need for us to stay

My friend, we’ve realized
there’s just no room for compromise
I can’t justify the over and over
Can’t say we never tried…

Now we go so far away
No more tears may fall today
Now we go so far away
No more need for us to stay
Track Name: Say It Sweet
Stand back
Wait
Tick tock it’s too bad your broken mind had you hesitate
Fall down
Escape
The soft hand you reach for snaps harder then a rattle snake

It has you running from your life
It has you flushing out your memories
Until your truth creeps out tonight
Kicks back again, takes out your knees and
Has you running for your life
Has you swimming through your soaked disease until
Your heart cries out tonight
I hear you say
I hear you whisper

Say it softly, say it sweet
Say that you love me for me
Say it softly, say it sweet
Say that you’ll be there for me

Times up
Too late
The thirst that you long for, sweet sentiment drips down your face
Stand up
Disgrace
Now no one watches you trickle down your last elate

It has you running from your life
Has you flushing out your memories
Until your truth creeps out tonight
Kicks back again, takes out your knees and
Has you running for your life
Has you swimming through your soaked disease until
Your heart cries out tonight

I hear you say
I hear you whisper
Say it softly, say it sweet
Say that you love me for me
Say it softly, say it sweet
Say that you’ll be there for me
