I can't walk across the water, I don't have the midas touch I can't promise I won't falter, So please don't expect too much I can't heal the sick and dying, I can't calm the stormin sea Yes I promise I'll keep trying, Just don't expect too much of me I can show you other miracles, Little marvels just for you I can do a little magic, Just to cast a spell on you Can't give the light back to a blind man, I can't turn water into wine I don't know we're of one kind and, So don't expect us to be fine But I can show you other miracles, Little marvels just for you And I can do a little magic, Just to cast a spell on you So will you follow my religion, And sing the gospel of our love And will you love me just a smidgen, Do you know what I'm talkin about I can't walk across the water, I don't have the midas touch I can't promise I won't falter, So please don't expect too much But I can show you other miracles, Little marvels just for you And I can do a little magic, Just to cast a spell on you So will you follow my religion, And sing the gospel of our love And will you love me just a smidgen, Do you know what I'm talkin about So will you follow my religion, And sing the gospel of our love And will you love me just a smidgen, Do you know what I'm talkin about

It's Not Me 04:03
You print light upon my pages, Take away the load of ages You make this emptiness a home, Breathe flesh to my wasted bone I turn the leaf, I turn the dial, Turn away from the denial Listen closely for the sound, As you lift me off the ground Winds that carry me on farther, Things that I would have done rather Lines delivered emptily, I play the part but it's not me Oh I play the part, And though I know the words by heart by now I just fail somehow, To convince myself You make sense of all my failures, Endure the oddest of behaviors You give me guidance when I err, Help me see when my eyes blur Yes you made me realize that, It's not the number or the size that determines what you have achieved, It's what you do, what you believe You're the wind that takes me farther, You're the life that I'd live rather Than lines delivered emptily, I played the part it ain't me Oh I play the part, And though I know the words by heart by now I just fail somehow, To convince myself

It's much too late to be afraid You've come too far to turn around And leave behind the gate Go on and push open the leaf You've come too far to close your eyes On what you did believe Summon your strength and take the step You've come too far to waver now And long for what you had You have to finally decide Are you in for the whole ride, You have to finally decide Or will you stay and live a lie You're much too old to be afraid You've lived for far too long to go And leave it all to hate Go on and open up your heart You've come too far to close your ears, And just not do your part Power your will and take the lead You've come too far to give up now And live life to their creed You have to finally decide Are you in for the whole ride You have to finally decide Or will you stay and live a lie Come and let me take you for a ride All you have to do is to decide You've got the ticket now make up your mind Or will you stay and live a lie You have to finally decide Are you in for the whole ride You have to finally decide Or will you stay and live a lie

I'm going under your radar Unnoticed, you're not aware I'm out of reach of your sonar It's as if I wasn't there I haven't triggered your alarms You haven't wrapped me in your arms And never will I didn't trip your live wire Unseen I slip from your mind I didn't spark your light's fire I'm lost but you'll never find I haven't triggered your alarms You haven't wrapped me in your arms And never will You won't receive an early warning In fact you'll never even know I'm like your average early morning Too grey to notice me at all And you never will I don't provoke a reaction Unheard my argument fades I clearly don't cause attraction One of my lesser loved traits I haven't triggered your alarms You haven't wrapped me in your arms And never will You won't receive an early warning In fact you'll never even know I'm like your average early morning Too grey to notice me at all And you never will

Black Thaw 04:05
Darkness fell like frozen ink Blocking out the light you'd think Darkness fell like frozen night Crushing love I swear it might What once was open hastened shut The deep dark cold it froze my blood What once was open hastened shut Darkness rose like seething mist Clenching life in its cold fist Darkness rose like naked fear Creeping slowly from the rear Who once was blithe now burdened down As greedy cold crept from the ground Who once was blithe now burdened down My mind is flooded by black thaw Washing away the good I saw A cold cold weight pushes me down A ring of ice, the devil's crown My mind is flooded by black thaw Washing away the good I saw A cold cold weight pushes me down And with the light went all the warmth Into which I had been born Once its reassuring hands Held my life but now it ends This little land I call my soul Its boundaries shaken to the fall This little land once stood so tall My mind is flooded by black thaw Washing away the good I saw A cold cold weight pushes me down A ring of ice, the devil's crown My mind is flooded by black thaw Washing away the good I saw A cold cold weight pushes me down My mind is flooded by black thaw Washing away the good I saw A cold cold weight pushes me down A ring of ice, the devil's crown My mind is flooded by black thaw Washing away the good I saw A cold cold weight pushes me down This little land I call my soul Its boundaries shaken to the fall

What if you discovered That the promises I made Are but a dream And what if you discovered That the diamond on your finger Lost its gleam What if you discovered That our lives have turned out less Than what they seem Yes what if you discovered That our hopes were slowly Blown to smithereens Will you still love, love me still Will you hold my hand, my hand hold still Will you be the one Will you still be the one Will you be the one What if you discovered That the stories that I told Were all but true And what if you discovered That I gave a gumball Diamond ring to you What if you discovered Aspirations need the strength To follow through Yes what if you discovered It's your hopes that are The only thing that grew Will you still love, love me still Will you hold my hand, my hand hold still Will you be the one Will you still be the one Will you be the one Will you be the one who doesn't care Despite a plastic diamond you're still there Will you be the one to stick around Despite the disappointment stood your ground Will you still love, love me still Will you hold my hand, my hand hold still Will you be the one Will you still be the one Will you be the one

It's the lightness that crushes me It's the weight of a thought It's the false truth that shushes me It's the importance of naught It's the speed of a lie As it charges ahead It's the loss of possessions That I've never had This ain't my rhythm And this ain't my rhyme This is ain't the kind of thing I want filling my time This ain't my world And this ain't my thing This ain't the kind of song That I'd like to sing It's the fully clad nakedness It's what everyone sees It's an unfair advantage Employed with difficult ease It's a life full of moments That are minuscule deaths It's a heart beating hard As it runs out of breath This ain't my rhythm And this ain't my rhyme This is ain't the kind of thing I want filling my time I know that it's not I know that it ain't I know what I don't want I know you don't want the same
