Track Name: Without A Poet - Can't Be Won
Can’t Be Won



Wondering why this town calls my name at night.

Another high, trying not to spill my drink on my pressed tie.

I’m a fun loving guy, ‘til I put back a few then I’m ready to fight.

I’m all right, but ask me again and I will tell you a lie.



Going home to my family, knowing I’ll find them hiding away from me.



Why am I so weak?

I’ve tried to get free so many times, but I’m caught by the pleasures of life

‘til all my excuses deplete and I find myself wandering the street for comfort.









Shifting moods, it seems that we handled our joy way too soon.

I lick my wounds when I find there’s no baby inside of her womb.

What to do, I feel like I’m telling her lies to get through

Where were you? I know that you’re no longer held to a tomb



Knowing now I need you here with me,

Need my sight to clear up, ‘cause I can’t see



Why am I so weak?

I’ve tried to get free so many times I’m caught by the pressures of life

‘til all my excuses deplete and I find myself wandering the streets for comfort.



Am I doomed to walk alone or are You with me?

Is there life left in this man and who should I be?

Cause I am tired of falling down, I trip on my feet

Is there time left in your plan and can you save me?
Track Name: Without A Poet - Product
Product



When winds of pain blow the pages of your life,

I'll share my thoughts, though they're laced with hungry knives.

You need life, but it seems none can be found

My words are death, but you love the way they sound.



I think I'm friendly but there's war inside my heart.

I'll try to help you but I'll tear you all apart.



What I wanna do I cannot do at all,

A sort of product of the fall,

And so to justify everything I’ll say

"This is the product of us all..."



Lord, I know this is the product of our evil

As we have all wandered farther from Your will.

When my heart seems to thirst for more destruction

God I ask that you'll show Your goodness still
Track Name: Without A Poet - Aston's Blindness
Aston’s Blindness



I can’t define who you should be,

Just take a look at me, I’m no one to compare.

My life is lead by thoughts of greed,

What I can do for me, there’s nothing left to spare.



Hold on, there’s something I have missed.

Dawn breaks and with it I can see a glimpse of

Daylight, is not a state of mind,

‘Cause we’ve tried to see when we are blind.



I know what I can do and say,

But you’ll still have your way, ‘cause I’ve been there before.

You’ll try to plan your own escape,

You’ll kick against your fate, but you have no control
Track Name: The Voyage
The Voyage



What’s got you thinking and trying to stay busy,

Still living each day of your past?

You dodge conversation and try to find shelter,

You’re wincing at each blade of grass.

The comfort that’s found here, but still you feel naked

Ashamed of the specter you are.

Everything’s piercing, it seems overwhelming

Afraid that the mountain’s to far…



Away from never ending grey,

From all we used to say,

Afraid that times will change;

And change will bring you pain.









What is my problem? I’m drawn to this Heaven

That seems to be nothing but hurt.

I’m fighting my senses; those that are in conflict

Grown used to a world made of dirt.

Watching my brothers fighting this sickness

From which none of us can be cured

Along comes the teacher, easing my traveling

Giving me freely the cure (Showing me what it means).

And takes it …



I struggle through questions of faith and of reasons I thought I could do well without;

A life after pleasure and swearing by things of which I knew nothing about.

But now at the end I have lost everything, in which I had room left to boast,

‘cause here in the light of Your glorious day, I see now that I’m but a ghost
Track Name: Underground, Understand, I Understate
Underground, Understand, I Understate



I watched us come up through a crack set in the floor.

It seems familiar, though I’ve not been here before.



Play the martyr,

Say “It’s harder than you think

Wait till the water’s right,

Step out and you will sink.”



But it feels like there’s something missing here.

The light’s right, but I’m still full of fear.

It feels like I’m a stranger in your land

I will never understand…



Being plagued with my fear of falling leaves

My whole being’s crying, “Please, let me out!”

Now I’m longing for the ride to take me home.

But you say I’ll never be alone when I’m with You.



It comes, it comes to wipe the dawn away.

Awaken all you sleepers.

See time shot dead by light’s gold arrows,

Still I cannot understand
Track Name: Saved My Life
Saved My Life (Psalms 42)



As a deer longs for water, so my soul thirsts for You,

For the One I call Father, You’re the only God of truth.



How can I come before You? Lord, my tears have been my food

And I hear those around me say, “Behold this lonely fool.”



Why are you downcast, oh my soul?

Why so disturbed within me now?



I will put my hope in Jesus; I will find my peace in His sacrifice

I will put my trust in His Words, knowing He’s the one that saved my life



Now to all who are weary come to Him who gives you rest.

And to all who will seek Him, You will be forever blessed.



Deep calls to deep; Your voice like waterfalls, it thunders and it breaks down the highest walls
Track Name: All Because Of You
All Because of You



God of might, of love’s pure light

All sing holy, I’ll sing holy

Marvelous, Our God with us

Hallelujah, won’t You sing over us?



I’m clearing out to let you in

And giving up what won’t give in

It’s all because of You, It’s all because of You!



Take my nights, consume with light

God of Mercy and God of Might.



Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Track Name: Created By Design
Created by Design



Looking past the in between,

I know, these transitions wear on you and me.

I don’t feel like I’m the brother I should be,

Cause time apart, brings perspective where it needs to be.

Although you know I want you here with me.



Speaking out what’s down inside,

The Fear of being lonely hides behind your pride.

I’ve seen all those things you tried so hard to hide.

I take fault for the brokenness in you I find,

Although, no one else would say the blame is mine.



Seeing more now than I need,

At times, for the healing, wounds just need to bleed.

I’ve got more to say if you’ll just hear me plead

You think seeing more will make a better me,

You’ll try, but there’s so much more for you to see.



There is so much greater than the object of your eye,

Some greater meaning than this unfulfilling lie.

Something deep inside says you’re created by design,

All for a reason though you can’t imagine why.



Cause it’s all grace anyway, this life is not our own,

And this will all fade away, cause brother, we are known
