Track Name: New World
All my friends say I'm gone again

But I found gold in a new world
On the other side of the sea
But I won't be long for the world spins on
I'll be back home in a year
Track Name: Ring the Bells
Lovers go and hit the road
That they've paved with your heart
Like thieves they come in the night
Taking all you have

With knees curled up against your chest
You'll pray that you've got something left
But you can be made beautiful again

Ring the bells and free the doves
My dear your dress awaits
Lift your eyes, don't walk with pride
Your shame has washed away

Your innocence went to the wind
Now your shame takes hold
You broke your vows, this holy love
Has been jaded gray

With knees curled up against your chest
You'll pray that you've got something left
But you can be made beautiful again

Ring the bells and free the doves
My dear your dress awaits
Lift your eyes, don't walk with pride
Your shame has washed away
Track Name: Keep Calm and Carry On
We were told that war would never show
Its dirty face around here
But then in the night flew bombs like fireflies
Lighting up the dark summer sky

When they drop the bombs
Keep calm and carry on, my friends
For the war will end, the land will mend
And lovers will dance once again

Late into the night we held each other tight
Wondering when the peace would end
When everything we built
Would shatter on the ground
As stones to mark our graves

When they drop the bombs
Keep calm and carry on, my friends
For the war will end, the land will mend
And lovers will dance once again

Oh, the bombs, they light the sky
Oh, the bombs, they light up the sky
Oh, the bombs ignite in your eyes
Oh, the bombs ignite in your eyes

When they drop the bombs
Keep calm and carry on, my friends
For the war will end, the land will mend
And lovers will dance once again
Track Name: A Map for Whomever
Here's where the path will split
Two unlit sides
You go left and I'll go right
And I'll see you on the other side
Of the storm my friend
Until then

Don't get lost in the dark
Don't lose sight of the light
Don't get lost in the dark
You'll be alright

I'm learning just to walk again
On my own
Without holding someone's hand
Or having someone warm to hold
On moonless nights
Stars don't shine

Don't get lost in the dark
Don't lose sight of the light
Don't get lost in the dark
You'll be alright

I have seen the light
I know there's relief
I can see the end of this tunnel
The safety of retreat

Don't get lost in the dark
Don't lose sight of the light
Don't get lost in the dark
You'll be alright
Track Name: Shift Colors
Take your hat and grab your coat
Raise the sails and leave your home
We've seen these fields for far too long
The seas will hold the drink to quench your thirst

Our home has grown so cold
These seas have called
The wanderlust that lies inside us all

Work the fields from day to day
With naught to gain but wheat and grain
How long will you pretend you're free
Drop your chains
The world, your eyes must see

Our home has grown so cold
These seas have called
The wanderlust that lies inside us all

But when you're out on the sea
And home is all you need
Your heart will long to go back
But all the maps have washed away
And all the stars grow faint
Where will you return
Track Name: Black Bag
I bear this burden no one should take
A black bag of all the mistakes I have made
I wear the chains of my former days
I need someone to take that away

I've got a closet full of bones
Left from many years ago
But they just won't go
So I locked them all inside
And I swallowed up the key
And prayed the world would never see

But they'll say no, no no, no, no, no
You'll get what you deserve

Mr. Hangman get your rope
For the jury's cast their vote
Since they've seen what's underneath
And with a noose around my neck
I will slowly bow my head and cry
Please forgive me

But they'll say no, no no, no, no, no
You'll get what you deserve

I bear this burden no one should take
A black bag of all the mistakes I have made
I wear the chains of my former days
I need someone to take that away

But they'll say no, no no, no, no, no
You'll get what you deserve
Track Name: Keep Heart, Dear Captain
You said that we would make it
And I was naive enough to believe
That nothing would sink us
Until the storm proved me wrong

But I'll stay like the captain
Who sinks with the ship
That he loves too dearly
To ever let go
And I'll say that I'm sorry
For nothing I did
And I'll say that I'm sorry
As you get swept away

But I'll stay strong
And keep holding on
To the depths below
I'll never let go
In a hundred years
You still, you'll still
Be engrained in my bones

But I'll stay like the captain
Who sinks with the ship
That he loves too dearly
To ever let go
And I'll say that I'm sorry
For nothing I did
And I'll say that I'm sorry
As you get swept away

But I'll stay like the captain
Who sinks with the ship
That he loves too dearly
To ever let go
So play on musicians
And carry me down to my home
Track Name: Warmer Days Await
Sleep now, darling don't you cry
Someday soon the sun will kiss your eyes
I know the world feels cold
But summer's love soon will unfold

Hold your head high above the clouds
The world looks gray when you just look down
Lift your eyes to the sky
And see the sun shining bright

There will come a rose
Unfolding, oh so slow
I know you've been hurt by the thorns
But don't be scared to try again
Don't let it hold you back

All we are is just what's left
From wounds we felt long ago
Don't be scared to try again
Just give it time to mend
Give it time to mend
Track Name: Where Will You Go
Awake, my dear
The time draws near
Your lamp must not grow cold
Arise, don't fear
We all end here
But through the door
The good will go

I will die in the middle of the night
So I know that no one will see me letting go
I will die in the middle of the night
So I'll see the darkness turn to light

Where will you go
Where nobody know
And where will you go
When the end draws near (x3)

I will die in the middle of the night
So I know that no one will see me letting go
I will die in the middle of the night
So I'll see the darkness turn to light (x2)
