Track Name: False
This is the last of it
Stirred up and splattered all over the walls
Who forgives whom?
Forgiveness knows
This is the moment when
I learn to fight
Learn to stand and walk straight to the end
Who forgives whom?
Forgiveness knows

We weren't who started it, we weren't the culprits
We couldn't have been
Who forgives whom? Forgiveness
Then how did the timbers fall?
How did we lose it all if we were resting
inside of the smoke?
Who forgives you,
When you're left alone?

You're not indebted to me
Only I am to blame for this tragedy
Who forgives whom?
Forgiveness knows

We were somewhere else
Beside ourselves
You are ever false
And I, ever foolish
Track Name: Rain
Tell me a story so I can fall back asleep
I'm scared of the storm clouds I see rolling in
Tell me the one where that man was afraid
Though people stood by him when he made mistakes

Were they wrong about him?
Should they've turned away?
Were they wrong about him?
Should they've turned away?

Tell me how one time, he lied through his teeth
And later, before God, he fell to his knees

Was I wrong about him?
Should I've turned away?

Hush now, hush now, honey
Listen to the rain

Tell me another, if I stay awake
I'm tired of dreaming of things I can't keep
Track Name: Elijah
Come out and stand before me on the mountain
And soon you'll understand
Come out and stand before me on the mountain
And soon you'll understand

Then the sound of a whisper
Shook the ground he stood upon
What are you doing here, Elijah?
Then the sound of a whisper
Shook the ground he stood upon
What are you doing here?

If the earth should move into the water
Still you'd stand alone, in the quiet
If the wind should blow these boulders down
Still, my son, you'd stand in the silence

Where are you now?
Where am I supposed to go?
I'm doing all I can to listen
I've never a silence so deafening

Won't you speak to me, Lord?
Won't you speak to me, Lord?
Won't you speak to me, Lord, with your still, small voice?
Track Name: Old
Miles of stone, the sound of the toll, the stain of the window
Seems to grow old with me
Lost, but I'm known, a search of the soul
The hum of cathedrals
Seems to grow old with me
It seems to grow old

"We were built up from the ground
We were stone and space and sound
We were built up from the ground
We were young once, too"

Today I am tired, and pride hold my hand, makes me a liar
Seems to grow old with me
The weight of-
These walls tell me I'm small
The hum of cathedrals
Seems to grow old with me
Seems to grow old

And do I look older, do I look stronger, or do I look sad?
Do I look braver, do I look surer?
Do you know yet?

It seems to grow old with me
It seems to grow old
Track Name: Promises Shown
I waited for you on a hill
I tried to be the ground breaking
I tried to be the wind billowing
I tried to be so loud you had to hear me

Then you took my hand in yours
With the other, carved the words
We were known by, in the wood
Promises shown

I was buried in doubt by your eyes
I tried the pedestal, so high
I tried to be the stars giving light
I tried to be so out of reach you'd need me

And I've never stood so still
And you've ruined all my will to leave
Now I'm rooted like a tree
One that's crippled by disease

And all of the lines we were carving, in good faith, would fade
And your name and mine would mean nothing as time rearranged us
Near me and falling and coming alive, now you're leaving
I cannot lie, to me, you were what I was believing
