Track Name: White Fire
This winter isn't what I expected, no
Cold and surprising, and a little un-inspiring
But as the heat comes
I breathe and reach my hands out
Change the season
Take my mind, and set me off

Ride this light into the storm, headstrong
I wanna live long and burn bright and wild
A white fire, to cleanse all
Ride this light, my heart is pounding, lungs collapse
Keep my head down, and forward fast
Like white fire to cleanse all

This night has been a fine one
And honestly I think I should tell someone
But what's the point
When it will go
I can't stop this here, this moment's bigger so now I fear
I may never get it back, I must get it back

Ride this light into the storm, headstrong
I wanna live long and burn bright and wild
A white fire, to cleanse all
Ride this light, my heart is pounding, lungs collapse
Keep my head down, and forward fast
Like white fire to cleanse all
Track Name: In The Morning
When the sun rises
When the sun opens up it's eyes
I feel the warmth of
I feel the light come
Like another chance, like a moon
In the start of my night

Inspiration shines when I know that I'm still alive

When the stars are out
When the kiss is strong
When the music plays
When I feel the need to dance all night long

Inspiration shines when I can still feel I'm alive

I feel it now
I feel it now
I feel it now
I feel it coming on

When I feel, I'm alive
Track Name: Where To Go
When your guard is up
And you're acting too tough to understand the obvious
And you know this chapter
Doesn't seem like it was planned
But you'll write it anyway, cause you know that it must be

But what I need to know
Is where to go, from here
Holding on for the answers
To see, to find it's clear that you must
Do what is honest, what's true, what you believe
At least that somehow, yes that makes sense to me

Because...
We are not, so much different than our younger ones
Just, going on, trying to make the best of this
And I'm hoping that this story will incite some consequence
And will relieve this turbulence

But what I need to know is where to go from here
Holding on for my brothers, to smash, to break this trend of fear
And do what is honest, what's true, what you believe
At least that somehow, yes that makes sense to me

What I need to know
Is where to go, from here
Holding on for the answers
To see, to find it's clear that you must
Do what is honest, what's true, what you believe
At least that somehow, yes that makes sense to me
