Track Name: The Circle Must Be Broken

Well I've gotta find out & I gotta know now what you're gonna want me to do
Well I've gotta find out & I gotta know now what you're gonna want me to do
Well I've gotta find out & I gotta know now what you're gonna want me to do
Yes I've got a little problem and it's rubbing off on you

see I'm constantly buzzing and moving all around
I've got so much insecurity I can't let myself slow down
but the circle must be broken yes the wheel it must be jammed
because I'm not who I'm meant to be and I gotta find to who I am


Well I've gotta find out & I gotta know now what you're gonna want me to do
Well I've gotta find out & I gotta know now what you're gonna want me to do
Well I've gotta find out & I gotta know now what you're gonna want me to do
Yes I've got a little problem and it's rubbing off on you

see I've tried to prove my value and that's a stupid as it sounds
I thought if I could just work hard enough my dreams they would be found
but the circle must be broken and the wheel it must be jammed
because I'm not who I'm meant to be and I've gotta find who I am


Well I've gotta find out & I gotta know now what you're gonna want me to do
Well I've gotta find out & I gotta know now what you're gonna want me to do
Well I've gotta find out & I gotta know now what you're gonna want me to do
Yes I've got a little problem and it's rubbing off on you

but in the end it's inconclusive if I've accomplished everything
by pressing through to all my goals with false realities
but the circle must be broken and the wheel it must be jammed
because I'm not who I'm meant to be & I've gotta find who I am
Track Name: Blood on the Banjo
Chorus: New Years Day and there's blood on the banjo
there's blood on the banjo and blood on the tracks

Well I'm feeling disconnected and I've probably just neglected too many things to ever fully know

Chorus: New Years Day and there's blood on the banjo
there's blood on the banjo and blood on the tracks

See for six months we’ve been living on the road
and I know I didn’t call you even though I am addicted to my phone

Chorus: New Years Day and there's blood on the banjo
there's blood on the banjo and blood on the tracks

so now it's time for awkward conversations for seeing friends I never get to see
and now it's time for awkward situations I wish you knew how much you mean to me

Chorus: New Years Day and there's blood on the banjo
there's blood on the banjo and blood on the tracks
Track Name: Borthwick & Failing
Chorus: Is there anybody out there? Is there anybody there?
Is there anybody listening to me? Does anybody care?

Now I'm sitting on the corner of Borthwick and Failing Street
Singing in a room all alone, but not alone in this world


Well I fought through this depression and I am on the other side
feeling just a little stir-crazy like I wanna go outside
but first I need to clean my bedroom like when I was in third grade
funny how now that I am grown up, my bed is still not made


now my baby's on the telephone talking to her momma in PA
sometimes I wish I was there now, yes I'd like to run away
but I need to take the trash out from the middle of the floor
cause when the trash is taken out it won't smell no more


sometimes it's all the small things that I forget to do
it’s easy to dream of many things when there’s homework left to do

Track Name: Sunday Afternoon
Chorus: A Bible and a side of whiskey on the side of a Sunday afternoon
I wish it was just summer time and summer time’s coming soon

Well I grew up always hearing that this alcohol was wrong
but I’m so thankful you’re listening and you’re singing right-a-long
and some days I’m still not comfortable down at the local bar
and I knowing where I’ve come from that still seems pretty far


if sin is to be defined by who we are and what we drink
then maybe we should wipe off the slate and take a little time to think
see Jesus drank more alcohol than I will ever know
yes he turned that water into wine oh the bible tells me so


still I don’t like the taste of alcohol or cigarettes
and as I’m getting older that’s no longer a regret
but I do want to know you and consider you a friend
and if that means staying up too late well you can count me in

Track Name: Fruit Punch & Alcohol
Chorus: fruit punch and alcohol they've got nothing to say
jesus came and washed all my sins away – woa oh oh oa
when I see a cop I go the other way
jesus came and washed all my sins away – woa oh oh oa

Truth is I'm questioning my future and that I struggle with my past
Truth is I'm questioning my future and seeking after things that last


Truth is that I'm afraid to tell you the things I've buried in my heart
Truth is that I'm afraid to tell you fearful that things will fall apart


truth is that I'm afraid to tell you that I was raised in sunday school
and that my sunday morning demons have kept me silent as a fool

Track Name: I Wanna Let You Out of the Box
Since I was in 7th grade I've wondered what the people say whenever I walk away
Since I was in 4th grade I've wondered how to spell afraid and that sounds like a summary to me
Since I was past 22 I wondered what they did to you and if my words they cut you like a knife

Chorus: I wanna let you of the box (x3) but I'm scared

Hellfire is coming soon & I'm sleeping in past noon not worrying about the climate or the times
we've got to escape some way so I planned out a holiday to throw away my worries like a child
then in the middle of my spring break I stumbled upon my mistakes and now I've gotta see where I went wrong


Christian school can leave a mark and I'm praying for a brand new start from the scars it left that only I can see
so if truth lies in the consequence and grace is more that evidence then how can I apply what I've learned

because I'm getting older and I can't just walk away
until I've put my demons in the ground (x 2)


hope and resolution found I'm gonna build on the solid ground and forgive those friends who let me down
Track Name: Math, I Will Defeat You
Math, I will defeat you but it will have to wait until morning
till I go down to the tutoring center, where I'll probably find a few of my classmates
all trying to do what they can to pass the midterm

Well I'll ask about questions 5 & 6 and I'll try to pick up some answers quick
and I'll do what I can to pass the midterm

Math, I will defeat you but it will have to wait until morning
till I go down to the tutoring center, where I'll probably find a few of my classmates
all trying to do what they can to pass the midterm
Track Name: Land of Oppertunity
Sense and sensibility well it never meant that much to me in fact I've never seen it on tv
land of opportunity well I'm pretty glad were kinda free because truth is we could be a lot worse off

chorus: please tell me what you're gonna do if you're not gonna play this on the radio

to maximize the rock n' roll yes were taking back some control but we seek to not avoid responsibilities Like where do go when the money's spent? Yes I'm married and I pay the rent and that's a life I'm committed to
see I could go back with mom and dad see growing up wasn't that bad but that's not really what we wanna do


So we will do things on our terms applying the lessons we have learned
and trying our best to steward what we have
so if it means I gotta get an extra job eat more ramen like my Uncle Bob
then maybe we will see these dreams come true

Track Name: Small Town
Chorus: Grew up on the west coast close to the western sea
met a girl from the east coast, can't believe how lucky I can be

grew up in a small town my dad and grampa both worked in the mill
spent my time in saw mills can't say that I miss it any still


Grew up playing baseball and truth it consumed most of my time
threw out my arm in high school had to find a new way to unwind


got caught on punk rock and Green Day changed my life in 94
many years later, I still like dancing circles on the floor
Track Name: Gasoline
Chorus: I had a job pumping gasoline funnest job that I've ever seen

I had myself a paper route, ride my bike throw the paper out


Across the road there was a record store, don't sell records there no more


Summer we'd go to the river, sunburn alley no forgiver


But those days are far and gone and this is a reflecting song
Track Name: Coffee
I said that it's too cold you told me I'm too old The sun it came out to play

I said that I'm sorry you said that you're leaving I hope you will be ok

I said that I'm tired you said drink some coffee I don't like my coffee black

You said just get over it I said I don't want to I don't like my coffee black
Track Name: It's A Beautiful Thing
No work in the morning - gonna sleep in see all my friends on this fine weekend
but first gotta sweep the floor clean the house hope all the kids are a quiet as a mouse

chorus: It's a beautiful thing, it's a beautiful thing, it's a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful thing

Gonna go for a walk - maybe stop and talk hopefully see a new band that actually rocks
see a basement show cause don't you know some things in life are worth a go


I met a girl and she blew my mind I get to sit next to her at dinner time
her smile brightens my day and when I've gone astray she finds me deep in my selfish ways


the sun came out and I stayed inside, put on some coffee then I went for a ride
to that place you know that we all seem to go dreaming with some friends of going to Mexico


if you're here to scoff maybe you're better off finding a friend and going for a walk
but if you're here today and lost your way lets try to find that loving feeling
yes if you find yourself a reeling let's try to find that loving feeling!
Track Name: Put Your Head on My Shoulder
Chorus: So put your head on my shoulder and we'll both wake up one day older just you and I, just you and I

Hey kid what do you know you went to a rock n' roll show and you met a guy, now it's you and I

Many years have passed since then you went to a lover from my best friend and I cried, when you almost died

Track Name: Shaken To My Feet
My identity is secure in Christ and Christ alone
I am made whole and made complete
I'm gonna shake that dust off of my feet
I'm gonna shake that dust off and be made complete

Is that you speaking Lord? What is this season for?
Is that you talking as I'm walking out the door? as I'm walking out the door!


Well I'm lacking confidence! Nothings making any sense?
Yes I'm looking forward as my dreams fall through the floor! As my dreams fall through the floor


If my identity's secure, then why am I'm feeling insecure?
If my identity's complete then why am I shaken in my feet?
So maybe, maybe I should stop and take some time,
to look inside me and see what has broken down see what has broken down


so I'm setting fire to ever learning how to Seek my identity
in how people make me feel, how people make me feel

Track Name: Shoes and Socks
My life was spinning round and round never minutes to slow down
then God he put his finger down & everything is upside down

chorus: I'm putting my anchor down, walking around this town.
I'm putting my feet in my shoes and my socks and walking around these neighborhood blocks

As minutes slowly turned to weeks, and every thing felt oh so bleak
There's kindness in the words you speak, but on these days I'm feeling meek


My life was spinning round & round & like a boy with out a frown
I'm happy with this freedom I have found! I'm happy with this freedom I have found!
