Track Name: Stay
An avalanche of tears,
A room filled full of fears,
Pressed between a wall of withered shears. A moment takes its shape,
A night without escape,
Colors of ones fate turn to hate.
CHORUS
So stay a little longer
Reach out for your thoughts, Let me in
Oh stay a little stronger
Let me feel the pain deep within
Cries of far away
In a tunnel dark and grey
Remnant of our day now astray.
An adolescent game,
spoken words of shame,
A lovers' quarrel's blame has no name.
CHORUS
Track Name: Carrie
Carrie loves her flowers in the spring
She holds them in her hand while on a swing Carrie wears her bonnet every spring
Woven from the finest April string
She walks to church on Sundays, about a mile Greeting people with a friendly smile
CHORUS
She lives her life, she loves out loud She stands young and proud
She is morning sunshine in a crowd She gives her best, all is good
It is understood, when the Good Lord calls, She'll say goodbye world
Carrie heeds the sunset in the park After she kneels down, prays 'til dark Carrie hears the sound of golden larks She knows that it is time for her to part
She sees an angel shining in the light Takes her last breath in the warmth of night
CHORUS
She lived her life, she loved out loud She stood young and proud
She was morning sunshine in a crowd She gave her best, all is good
It is understood, when the Good Lord called, She said goodbye world
CHORUS
Carrie loved her flowers in the spring Now they grow right next to her old swing Carrie wore her bonnet every spring
I can still hear Carrie when she sings
Track Name: Mother Earth
She falls into the water Deepened sea of blue Shuffled by the current Feathered in subdue
Walls of raging thunder Collapse before her eyes Gravel keeps on burning
Beneath there lay a fire CHORUS
She cries out wills of rescue Before we self-destruct
She reaches out and touches Brings home sweet harmony
Swallowed by a serpent Evil-gotten gains
Pools of bloody venom Mother what we made
CHORUS
CHORUS
She falls into the water Deepened sea of blue
Track Name: Second Chance
Streets are calm, shots ring out A baby dies in its Mother's arms She falls and cries tears of grief Another child gone without sin
CHORUS
If they had a second chance To battle poverty and pain
If they had a second chance To run away from all the hate If they had a second chance To battle poverty and pain
If they had a second chance To run away from all the hate
Sirens shriek through the air People watch in despair
Cries of fear fill empty streets The hardest hit are right at home
CHORUS
A child is lost, a departed soul Leaves this world unknown Future generations looking on Without peace our dream is gone
CHORUS
