Track Name: Can it Be? (2013)
Oh Hallelujah, Can it be?
My past is now my history
The future is in front of me
With you is where I want to be.
Track Name: Men, Like Dead Leaves (2012)
Men, like dead leaves, drifting with the wind;
soaked in the seas, life is near its end.
The dried up earth is filling up with mirth;
life it whispers, the winds they disperse.

Let the Sunlight wipe your withered eyes;
feel the warmth as the wet leaves start to dry,
and radiation flows as we blossom and we grow
back to life, as Daisies white as the snow.

Hear our cries, we're the shadows of the night
In the darkness, we're desperate for the Light,
and for hope of the dawn to come alive,
with our eyes wide open, looking to the skies

Our hands are joined as one, as we sing out to the Sun...

Let the Sunlight wipe your withered eyes;
feel the warmth as the wet leaves start to dry,
and radiation flows as we blossom and we grow
back to life, as Daisies white as the snow
Track Name: I See This Blood Flowing Now (2013)
If you’re hurt, sick, in pain,
Hear then now your own refrain;
If you strain and seek for truth,
There is an everlasting youth:

If you’re hanging on a tree,
Or if you’ve fallen to the ground,
Our wounds will bring us unity;
I see this blood flowing now!

Be you of heaven or the depths;
He who has right to his own breaths,
Then be it subtle, or a scream,
Lift your voice, and let it ring:

For every wrong done unto you;
For the injustice in your town;
This is a song for pastures new;
I see this blood flowing now!

If you, in battle, do prevail,
Or if your strivings come to fail,
We, hand in hand, conform as one;
We join together in this song:

Whether of roses or of thorns,
If on your head there lies a crown,
Then sound the trumpets, blast the horns;
I see this blood flowing now!
Track Name: Lions of the Night (2014)
Album lyrics:

I see life, I see happy
Youth and love, they entrap me,
And welcome me in to sing their song
I see color at a party
I feel alive but I’m embarking
On a universal requiem

I see the world
I see the lightning
Light up the evening sky
I see the world
I see the lightning
Wake up the lions of the night

I see pain, fractured creation
I see shame, humiliation
The schism that divided us from you
I see hurt, I see violence
As sinners prayers turn into silence
This prison has divided us from you

I see the world
I see the lightning
Light up the evening sky
I see the world
I see the lightning
Wake up the lions of the night
I see the world
I see the lightning
Light up the evening sky
Long lay the world in error pining
I'm searching and I can't seem to find
where I belong

God, the world was brighter with you by my side
The world was better with you by my side
The world was worth it with you by my side
The world was perfect with you by my side
