Track Name: Good Man, Bad Man
Riding along, thought I was on my way
I ran for the sunset, then reached for each new day
Proclaiming all my love so very loud and clear
Now I mumble to no one near, "my old ways finally found me here"

A good man is what I want to be
A bad man still lives inside of me
And how can my depravity
Give me what I need to be free?

Then I thought myself further down into the darkness
Finally realized I'm capable of being heartless
I just want to wake up clean,
Follow Jesus the Nazarene, and start doing what I mean

A good man is what I want to be
A bad man still lives inside of me
And how can my depravity
Give me what I need to be free?

The ones in the clean white coats say, "live it up, this is all she wrote"
The ones in the tall black hats say, "we've got the money to get behind that"
The ones in the rose sunglasses say, "yeah man, it all just passes"
I guess I'm left here holding this bag, the only one who's got sin to drag

A good man is what I want to be
A bad man still lives inside of me
And how can my depravity
Give me what I need to be free?
Track Name: Meeting The World Outside
I took off running to clear my head
All out of breath, stop thinking that I'm dead
Out of the rocking chair, not far from home
It's time to wander again, it's time to roam

Sometimes I'd open the door, then sit and stare
Trapped by depression, "man, it sure looks nice out there"
But now I'm walking, catching my breath
Ready to run again, 'til I've got nothing left

This is not how it's going to end
Here we are and here we go, my friend
This is not how it's going to end
This is not how it's going to end

I want to let go and feel those Lasting Arms
Pulling me closer, away from all alarms
I keep on stumbling, watching the clock
Forgetting all about the door that opens when I knock

Thankful I'm off the hook, safe to confide
No longer just to look, but ready for the ride
Now back to letting go, now to stop wasting time
No longer forced to live like the one whose done the crime

This is not how it's going to end
Here we are and here we go, my friend
This is not how it's going to end
This is not how it's going to end
Track Name: High Wires And Wild Fires
I saw a ghost look back from the mirror
Then I looked away, tapped by the whispers of a lonely night
I heard the steps of death grow nearer
No longer finding rest in any place I thought I might

I don't know if I can go back home any more
I don't know if my heart, my mind, my soul knows home anymore

Living like I did not walk this high wire
Thought I could depend on those who had all the confidence
But now that I look down I see wildfire
So many call my name, but so few make any sense

I don't know if I can go back home any more
I don't know if my heart, my mind, my soul knows home anymore

Leaning on the everlasting arms, no alarms with The Everlasting
Leaning on the everlasting arms, no alarms with The Everlasting
Leaning on the everlasting arms, no alarms with The Everlasting
Leaning on the everlasting arms, no alarms with The Everlasting

I don't know if I can go back home any more
I don't know if my heart, my mind, my soul knows home anymore
