Track Name: The Ignition
Look up, look up
See the velvet color of the moon
Pray child, pray now
Demons render useless what was good
Listen closely - trumpets soon will rattle silent nights
Justice tears us - oh, it’s gonna make it - it makes it right
Follow the writing

I got my mind made up
Everyone I ever loved is revelation - we're not forsaken
Point it towards the sky - everyone who sees it true is the ignition - to push the mission
Launch us towards the night - everyone is revelation
Oh, revelation!

Danger, danger
See the cliff is closer than it seems
Clear now, clear now
Everything that's sacred loses sheen
Listen closely, hear the silence suffocate the night
Forgive you father? You can never make it - can't make it right
Follow the writing

I got my mind made up
Everyone I ever loved is revelation - we're not forsaken
Point it towards the sky - everyone who sees it true is the ignition - to push the mission
Launch us towards the night - everyone is revelation
Oh, revelation!

Distant father
Further than the sinking gulf
Digging bunkers
Settled to absorb the loss
Sleep now, sleep child
Dreams are where the lion calls
Embrace me father - find in me the "ever lost"

I got my mind made up
Everyone I ever loved is revelation - we're not forsaken
Point it towards the sky - everyone who sees it true is the ignition - to push the mission
Launch us towards the night - everyone is revelation
Oh, revelation!
Track Name: Stand
Stand

Sit up straight listen to my talkin’
We’re devoured by the heart of nations
All we have, and all we knew
Started breaking down
Oh, oh

Cross your arms and lean into me
We were struck by electric heavens
All we did and all we see
Started breaking down
Oh, oh

I’ve got just one question
Will you leave us here with nothing?
I’ve got just one question
Can we make this into something?

When’s it gonna break, when’s it gonna break?
(We break the aging gears)
Who you gonna see, who you gonna see? I see, I see, I see
What you gonna dream, what you gonna dream?
(In dreams we face the fear)
Here we stand

Gather up all of your tragedy
Send it off to the jagged shoreline
All we had and all we did
Wasn’t right, right, right
Oh, oh

I’ve got just one question
Will you leave us here with nothing?
I’ve got just one question
Can we make this into something?
When’s it gonna break, when’s it gonna break?
(We break the aging gears)
Who you gonna see, who you gonna see? I see, I see, I see
What you gonna dream, what you gonna dream?
(In dreams we face the fear)
Here we stand

Ground is tremblin’ - shake, shake,
Storms are rumblin’ - wait, wait
Ground is tremblin’ - shake, shake,
Storms are rumblin’ - wait, wake
I’ve got just one question
Can we make this into something?!!! (yell)

When’s it gonna break, when’s it gonna break?
(We break the aging gears)
Who you gonna see, who you gonna see? I see, I see, I see
What you gonna dream, what you gonna dream?
(In dreams we face the fear)
Here we stand
Track Name: A Measure of Us
I was in the backyard reaching for the branch that was low.
You were watching TV easy laying low.
The sun dipped in the ocean, colors were expanding above.
I’ll wait for you (2x).

Why did I pull the curtain back at all?
The crowds keep growing, and I feel small.
Is this a measure?
It’s a measure, it’s a measure, it’s a measure of God.
Do you feel the pressure?
It’s the pressure, it’s the pressure, it’s the pressure of us.
I’m still waiting.

I was in the backseat, wind was racing me down the road.
You were in the front seat scanning radio
The birds that line the forest burst into the air all at once
I’ll wait for you (2x).

Why did I pull the curtain back at all?
The crowds keep growing, and I feel small.
Is this a measure?
It’s a measure, it’s a measure, it’s a measure of God.
Do you feel the pressure?
It’s the pressure, it’s the pressure, it’s the pressure of us.
I’m still waiting.

Come into the backyard (3x).
See the beauty we are.
Listen to the wind blow (3x).
Hear the song that we are (3x).
I’m still waiting.

Why did I pull the curtain back at all?
The crowds keep growing, and I feel small.
Is this a measure?
It’s a measure, it’s a measure, it’s a measure of God.
Do you feel the pressure?
It’s the pressure, it’s the pressure, it’s the pressure of us.
I’m still waiting.
Track Name: Mason Jars
Could it be us? What have we done?
Orbits adjust pulling us on.

Take me down till the water penetrates my lungs.
As pressure builds, scattered voices focus whispers into one.
Oh, I have hid my heart inside this movie script we wrote.
Now, I see it fading into beige and out of gold.

Mason jars are spread across the yard.
Glow, midnight lights are falling down tonight .
They’re fallin’ down tonight.
“It’s always right,” but it’s a lie...it’s a lie.

Could it be us? What have we done?
Orbits adjust pulling us on.
Forsaken not, we still clamor for the ones we love.
A focused lens magnifies till we see it all as one.
Oh, I have hid my hope beneath the floorboards of this home.
Now, I see it faded into beige and out of gold.

Mason jars are spread across the yard.
Glow, midnight lights are falling down tonight.
They’re fallin’ down tonight.
“It’s always right,” but it’s a lie...it’s a lie

Oh my lovely is coming back for me (4x)

Mason jars are spread across the yard.
Glow, midnight lights are falling down tonight
They’re fallin’ down tonight (2x)

Glow,
We’re fallin’ down tonight (4x).
“It’s always right,” but it’s a lie...but it’s a lie.
