Am I just a chord unresolved A room but no home Am I an echo alone With nowhere to go Will I be on my own Will my story be told Will the charts prove me wrong How does this end How does this end Am I just a ghost that is born To a host with no soul A sight and no sound No weight and no ground What message is sent Who cares what we meant? So how does this end How does this end How does this end How does this end How does this end You promised the world I didn't get what you sent So what happens next What happens next A chord unresolved

Standing on the edge of the waters Where sight can't see the deep And time is so violently cruel Crashing what we want as real They say that love will tear you apart So all I've got is this prayer to start I'll hold you close I'll hold you close I'll hold you close to my heart We sink ‘cause we jumped right in Justice doesn't take our side We're lost 'cause we keep resisting Can't live 'cause we don't want to die What holds together all these stars? Will it keep me from falling apart? Please hold me close Please hold me close Please hold me close to your heart

Overcome 04:42
I heard a voice Say unto me On New Year's day When these words shouldn't be You shall overcome You shall overcome I heard a voice Say unto me On New Year's day When these words shouldn't be You shall overcome You shall overcome Deep in my heart I still believed And that's all I could do When there was nothing there to see And when I went from cliff to valley I had nothing left for me And nothing made me weak but that's when I could see And I saw the time of thieves Who crawled upon our thrones Would find their time would end And not from what I know And not from who I am But because the light will shines upon the time And Time will the Truth And Time will not be kind And Time will not be theirs For this is not their time For this is not their time For this is not their time But ours I heard a voice Preaching unto me When freedom could not get free You shall overcome You shall overcome And I felt I would stand Even though I was lying in the sand That somehow my fears My fear of man, and the power of my plans The child would soon come forth To stop me from my crying And call me out to stand And I was jealous for worldly things Like a beggar with no father Starving with no mother And I forgot my easy teachings And my love for love of seeking and my heart was lost in sinking when I counted on all my rings How can I overcome On New Year's day Eden came to me A future of a female Sun Shining, shining out How can I overcome How can I overcome You shall overcome You shall overcome

Delight 05:29
Who create what? When collides with why If I bring you close Will I crush you at my side? I have yet to see you with my eyes But all I know is that you are my delight So much mystery in how you've entered my life Baptize me my love In ever flowing light Let fire come through my foolishness Til nothing false is left Let the waters pour upon me As I follow you to your rest What do you see? What will you hear in me? Is my life lost for you? Or will you find it inside of me? I haven't met you yet But I love you more and more each day (You are my delight) How much more can I love you? (You are my delight) How much more can I love you?

Anthem 04:22
You think of angels You think of speaking in new tongues Do you have love? You think of running You think of sacrificing to flames And throw it away You want to go out You want to hear them Call your name Call your name You think I’m crazy You think that maybe they were right Am I crazy? If I jump, is it suicide? There’s my father Unafraid to touch the flames There’s my mother Unafraid for her child Are we crazy? Are we crazy? Am I crazy? Well, I’m going to jump and not come down

about

If you ever go through a metanoia yourself, may the path be gracious and kind. This is the soundtrack to the past two years that was such an upheaval in so many ways.
