Track Name: Death Do You Part
Love is better
When kept forever
But I’m busy lookin' over
both of my shoulders
at the times I’ve squandered
Oh I’ve got enough problems for us both
But love is a loan, Love is a loan
That we’ve all gotten tryin’ pay back

Till death do us part
Till the stopping of my heart
To the pluckin' of these strings
To the songs that I sing
Love is a loan, Love is a loan
That we’ve all gotten tryin’ pay back now
Love is a loan

Love is a loan
In one another
We hold on to our equity
Love is a loan
That if paid back
Will out last eternity
Love is a loan
Giving of our hearts
And giving of our time
Love is a loan
That we must find someone
To help us co sign

I default to the tasting of your lips
To the movement of your hips
Perfume at the slightest whiff
Buckles my knees oh at your kiss

The beautiful of your allure
Is only matched by my rate of foreclosure.
We are greater then the parts of our sums.
Oh darlin'! Let's step back
And look at what we’ve become.
Track Name: The Garden
I fail to see you pouring your heart out, In light of my ignorant slumber party.
I was anything but comforting in Gethsemane, as you showed your humanity.
It is here on this dark hillside, fear and sweat mixes till it bleeds.
By this sacrifice, no man gets to the father but by me.

Well I’m a living dead man who visits his own wake, who wakes the dead.
With ear pressing to his chest, gonna go where the father's lead.
It’s taken this terrible turn of fate for me to understand now,
Just how it is sons will do anything to make their fathers proud.

Pulling my heart up by the ventricles and the veins
It’s hard to see your face in the blood, but I can see where it stains
The curtain cracks thundering in your resonance
For you no longer need a shroud to hide us from your presence
But romance is based on, romance is based of
Some water mixed with love and grace mixed with blood

Sense my birth there’s been a plan, no mere happenstance
This dying will be a pain which spares me no expense
How is this? I’ve gone from a son in whom you’re well pleased
To a thief left for dead, asking why have you forsaken me?

I have to play this game but first I must anti up
It is the people I’ve loved that will hold me to drink this cup
This is the price of what separates us to be abolished.
And with my dying final breath I'm gonna cry “It is finished”

But I'm still just pulling my heart up by the ventricles and the veins
It’s hard to see your face in the blood, but I can see where it stains
The curtain cracks thundering in your resonance
For you no longer need a shroud to hide us from your presence
But romance is based on, romance is based of
Some water mixed with blood and grace mixed with love
Track Name: Oh Death
Well what is this that eyes can't see
With ice cold hands takin' hold of me
Well I am death, none can excel
I'm gonna open that door between heaven or hell
Oh, death some men would pray
Could you please call on me another day
But the children prayed and the preacher preached
And all time and mercy are simply out of your reach
I'll fix your feet so you cant walk
I'll lock your jaw til you can't talk
I'm gonna close them eyes so you can see
That this very air is comin' and goin' with me
Well I'm death I come to take your soul
Leave the body and I'm gonna leave it cold
Draw up the flesh right off the frame
Even the dirt and worms have thier claim

O, Death
O, Death
Won't you spare me over til another year

Well my mother came to my bed
Placin' a cold towel upon my head
Well my head is warm and my feet they're cold
Oh death is a-movin upon my soul
Oh, death how you're treatin' me
You've close my eyes so that eyes can't see
Well you're hurtin' my body
and leavin' me cold
You runnin' the life straight outta my soul
Oh death please consider my age
Please don't take me at this stage
For all my wealth is at your command
If you'd but move that there icy hand
Oh the young and the rich and the poor
They're all hungerin' like me you know
But sadly no wealth, no ruin, no silver no gold
Nothing's gonna satisfy me but your soul
Track Name: Love Song
This song starts out with a question, that of:
What if I couldn’t love?
If I couldn’t love,
I could speak every earthy and heavenly tongue,
but I’m just a noisy cymbal, just a clashing gong.
And if I had the gift of prophetic psalm,
I’d understand where all God’s secrets are coming from.
Havin' the faith to say mountains to the seas be flung,
Knowing how the very stars in the skies themselves are hung,
but if I couldn’t love, I’d rather return to the very dust I was formed from.

Well you may ask, what is love?
Love is patient and kind and easily renewed.
Not known for being boastfully jealous or being proudly rude.
Love does not demand its own way.
It is not irritable, or keeping record of my time spent astray.
It does not rejoice in injustice
but rejoices when truth is seen through some righteousness.

Love never gives up, Love never gives up,
never loses it’s faith, hope or it’s trust.
Love has strength and endurance
to bare us through our stress and circumstance.

Words of knowledge and speaking through our spirits
and the words of prophets will fade if they're left incoherent.
But this love business, it’s the greatest, it'll last forever and ever!
As a child, I spoke, thought and reasoned like kids do.
But I'm an adult now, I put away those things I out grew.

We see things now imperfectly as through a dirty mirror,
but one day we gonna see everything so much clearer.
I only know now partially and incompletely,
but one day I will know everything concretely,
just as my Father knows my heart and my mind, He knows them intimately.

But three things will last forever and ever and ever:
Faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these
is one this song is based off of.
