Track Name: Earth...
Flickering lights and fading colors. Ambushed by fear, I always got cornered.

I'm standing my ground because I can't retreat further, these eyes looking down became eyes filled with wonder.

I saw galaxies in between, and heard a voice call like thunder.
My God, I see you! Now I no longer wander.

The stars will all beam, and some weep and some fall, but they all continue burning, even when the flame is gone.

Their light pierces the darkness without any notice, it never mattered how small, all that mattered was motive.

So God take all my stars, and fill up my sky, light up my night, and help me understand why.

Why a planet like me can give off such a light, when I'm filled with dark sins, and I'm clouded by fright.

Cause even planets can shine when they're distant enough, and once the world is removed, all that's left is Your love.

cause your love is the sun, it's the brightest of all, it's the focal point on this canvas you draw.

I'm no longer hunting, this little bear has grown strong, I have overcome hades, now my soul sings a new song.

God, help us.
Track Name: Orion (The Hunter)
I'm hunting for love in all the wrong places. It's all false, it means nothing at all.

I'm searching for pleasure in all the wrong places. Doesn't help a thing, it just destroys me.

I sin before I serve and I hate myself for falling short. If I can't love myself, then I can't love at all. So tell me what's it all worth?

Your love was given on a cross. It covered me since day one. I've wiped it off too many times, so overflow and flood my life.

Enough is enough, I may be weak, but my God You're stronger, so much stronger than me.

All I can ask, is that You know I'm trying my best, to be the man You've called me to be. feels like I'm lost at sea, I'm hunting for love, and I'm searching for pleasure, if I don't open the map how can I find You as my treasure?

Cause I sin before I serve and I hate myself for falling short. If I can't love myself, then I can't love at all. So tell me, what's it all worth?

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. I may be weak but my God You're so much stronger.
Track Name: Hercules (The Kneeler)
God, here I am on my knees, kneeling at Your feet. I was once a prideful man, well You made a kneeler out of me.

I weep for wings. Falling head first in this struggle. I know this is not my place.
I weep for wings. The pleasures have gotten me so weak. I give in way too easy.

I don't belong here. This shame needs to leave. If home is where the heart is, this is no home for me.

Everyday my heart breaks down, and I fall into these traps. I am a sick man, I cannot go on like this. I cannot win this war. I am so tired of fighting. I give up, I am done.

God, here I am kneeling at your feet. I was a prideful man, well You made a kneeler of me.

(They say the chains of this world can't be broken.)

I was a prideful man, yet You've made a kneeler of me. Lord you know I need a healer, could You be that for me? I'm laying it all down, I surrender everything. I'm laying it all down, I'm laying it at Your feet.
Track Name: Ursa Minor (The Little Bear)
My faith, is small as a mustard seed. If I lift these hands to You, will You lift this weight from me?

I am a wretch. I am a dirty man. I would lift my hands to You, but they're too busy trying to lift the weight of this world off of my shoulders.
God, why does this world hate me so much? God, why do I always end up the smallest? God, just let me die. Let me die. God, why do I always end up the smallest?

I am an ant to this world, but my faith is larger than all these mountains. I may be like a blade of grass to these giants, but my hands could behead them.

It's not about living my life by my terms. You wrote a book about living, and I have to die to live. Die to live.
God let me die, let me die.

My love for You could break mountains, but this mountain will not break Me. My love for you can break all of these mountains and I will not let this mountain break me. This mountain cannot break me. I will break this mountain.

(Patience is the giant in this, it looks at me like I'm the little bear. God just let me die. God, just let me die)

So I can live in You.

With every grain of sand falling through the cracks in my hands, I never saw how much they needed each other to build up from the water to create new land. This castle, so small, not good enough, water boarded walls. I'm afraid they'll come tumbling down and fall. But even when they do, the Creator's hands pull the pieces together, stronger walls, stronger hearts, larger moats to break the waves apart. Built by the Father, with craftsmanship so clever, every tiny grain pressed down and molded together, love became the glue that held us forever. No storm could overtake us, we stood boldly amidst the violent weather. You made me important, You formed me with greater worth, You knew me from the start, and You saw greatness before we saw birth.

My faith, as small as a mustard seed. If I lift these hands to You, would You lift this weight from me?

Flickering lights and fading colors. Ambushed by fear, I always got cornered.

Standing my ground cause I can't go back further, these eyes looking down became eyes filled with wonder.
