Track Name: When It Comes
Endless night, can't stand the knocking pain
I lost my sight, I only hear the thundering rain
Visions of ghosts, circle around my head
The guts I've lost, I fear I won't regain

And when it comes
The sun once gold
Burns down to dust
And now it's cold

I feel the wind, blown gently down my nape
I stay in bed, inside my comfort cape
For a moment I forget
And I let go, until regret

And when it comes
The sun once gold
Burns down to dust
And now it's cold

And when it strikes
A heart once gold
Burns down to dust
And now it's gone
Track Name: My Tractor
My tractor's cold, it's made of steel
My tractor's wet, it cannot feel
The wind that blows, the sun that heats
The gentle tease of summer breeze

My tractor's strong, it's made of steel
My tractor's stiff, it cannot feel
The grass it stomps, the dirt it pounds
The trail it leaves of disbelief
It just forgets with no regrets

My tractor's tough, it's made of steel
It doesn't care where it was built
It hasn't met the worker's sweat
It hasn't seen the unpaid debt
My tractor's rough, it's made of steel
It doesn't care what time, what year
It never set, it never ate
Never said grace, never been late
In silence waits, inanimate

And now it's gone
Blown far by the storm
Track Name: Faith
I scraped my hands for you until they bled and bone showed through
I tore my eyes for you to let you know I'm always true
Got up and left ahead before you needed to remind
I ran right back to you because again you changed your mind

And you brought me down
Yeah you crushed me down
Never thought the blade's so deep
Never thought my guts would reap

And you brought me down
Yeah you crushed me down
I took my last vow
I lost my faith now

I wore the cross for thee and waited for the devil's fee
Got down on both my knees and prayed that you will set us free
Without a blink or sound I laid my son for you to rest
Without words of protest, just so I could pass your test

And you brought me down
Yeah you crushed me down
Never thought my eyes could see
Never thought you'd let me be

And you brought me down
Yeah you crushed me down
I took my last vow
I lost my faith now
Track Name: Who Are You? (Reprise)
Desperate hours and a grasping hand
The moon lights up what the sun darkened
I stare straight at my one true friend

Stuffing myself with expressions, slogans
I project outside, escape my head
Take the devil's hand and continue this dance

First you plead me to go
Now you've convinced me to stay
Who are you today?

I chew your every thought
Chase you like a prey
Who are you today?

Another word, another sentence
Take a metal bar a break out the fence
Anyway tomorrow it becomes nonsense

Spin around and wind a string
Pierce your mouth and wear a ring
Face the fact you'll never be king

First you plead me to go
Now you've convinced me to stay
Who are you today?

I chew your every thought
Chase you like a prey
Who are you today?
Track Name: Come Heaven Down
Papa was a chief
Mama's like the wind
But where does that leave me?
Needy like a fiend

How will I touch the sky
If I'll never dare to try?
I'd rather stay here be
Sitting comfortably

Come heaven down on me
It's not my life to give
It's not for you to see
Come heaven down on me

Trouble I'll never find
When I've got some help from behind
A friendly hand that frees
When I'm sunk to my knees

How will I learn my size
When I always get the prize
They said they'll take my key
But that would never be

Come heaven down on me
It's not my life to give
It's not for you to see
Come heaven down on me

If I'll dive I'll never know
The little fish that lives ashore
It's getting late, it's time to go
But I'm afraid I'll miss the show
Track Name: Diamond
Smell the fresh drops of the morning dew
See the sky turn from dark black to blue
Now I'm ready to take up my cue
Now you're gone without leaving a clue

Another day, another sun rebirth
Still walking upon this soaked up earth
Again the sun, a day reborn
Dazzling light, you should have warned

And I see my diamond down
Sleeping broken on a muddy piece of ground
I still remember your sound
Before you started burning bridges down
I had to lock the shatters tight
In a little black box inside

With some company I circle town
In my head I still vision your evening gown
On my way I meet another clown
All he does is paint me a bigger frown

And I see my diamond down
Sleeping broken on a muddy piece of ground
I still remember your sound
Before you started burning bridges down
I had to lock the shatters tight
In a little black box inside
