Track Name: Hurricane Love
More time, less war
Look upon the fountain
Raised sight but a low rapport
Beat against the mountain
One life, one score
Running for the prize with my eyes on the heavenly host
My soul beats hard and the sun beats on

This path draws blood
breaks a man in two mends a heart then pushes him on
Drink deep sweat love
Following the man born again with a hurricane love

And I know this is my ticket for a fool to become the divine
when you are mine and I am yours
and it ain’t brought like a bread train
take it from the fruit that the vine’s what he says
but if you drink now then the wine is yours

Gale winds, still voice
reading like a palm every word of the heavenly joy
dig deep, press on
you take the kind of man that I am and you give him it all

And I know this is yours
hanging from the tree in the eye of the storm
but if you die now then I am whole
And life pours out from a great pain
so let Lazarus rise for your glory and fame
But if you drink now then the wine is yours

Shake me, break me,
I need you to be my anchor in the calm,
Cause I stray far when the pressure’s off.

And I know this is my ticket for a fool to become the divine
when you are mine and I am yours
life pours out from a great pain
so let Lazarus rise for your glory and fame
but if you drink now then the wine is yours
Track Name: Raisin' A Boy
I realize we aint living in the freedom
Buyin’ the lie we need more blood to pay it off
I’m walking on this troubled shore
Finding the line between your pardon and my hands

I want my resurrection please
So I’m letting go of all that I’ve seen
Don’t give me milk God I want meat

Cause I’ve been raising a boy
But I aint him anymore

Pile em’ high I need fuel to fan the season
Corner the lie this ignorance I can’t afford

I want my grace empowered peace
So I’m letting go of all that I need
So give me more God I want thee

Cause I’ve been raising a boy
Yes I’ve been raisin’ a boy
Well I got no excuse I aint just a man
I’m a Spirit son I’ve got heart and hands
Yes I’ve been raisin’ a boy
But I ain’t him anymore

I’ve been raisin’ a boy
I’ve been raisin’ a boy
Now I aint raisin’ a boy
No I ain’t raisin’ a boy
Track Name: Help Me Believe
Whisper in my ear
That I am not asleep
Tell me a story that I recognize
Would you touch my face
And help me believe
That the stories that I know for myself
Are not lies

Cause I have seen
Heavens doors open to me
I have shook to the bones
And I have seen your face as I lay on the floor
And I have cried
And I have sought
Like a beggar in my soul
Like a beggar in the world just to find you Lord

Cause Lord I believe help me believe
Lord I can see but I still can’t see clearly
Lord I believe would you help me believe
Cause I want it so bad
Track Name: Out of Exile
Did you know that love seeks it seeks your heart
And it reaches out as the world breaks, it breaks apart

But some don’t want love
Some don’t want peace
Some don’t want rest for you
Some just want tears
And some just breathe hate
Some just put pressure on the wound to see pain

Did you know that heaven cries it cries for you
And when you ran it kept watch, it watched for you

But some don’t want love
Some don’t want peace
Some don’t want rest for you
Some just want tears
And some just breathe hate
Some just put pressure on the wound to see pain
Some don’t want love
Some don’t want peace
Some don’t want rest for you
And the lies that they tell
And their dryness of heart
Won’t quench the weary soul

But I need you to know
That there is love in me

I’m calling to you
Come back from the woods
Come out of exile.
Track Name: Call Me
Call me, call me out from where I’ve been
Speak to me in poems cause I love it so much more when you speak

Hold me, hold me out in front with your hands
There in your arms my heart is safe, is safe again

You have called me friend
my soul is warm again when I’m with you

Pour me, pour me out upon your plans
make me a river, make me a river bending soft through your hands.

You have called me friend
my soul is warm again when I’m with you

And oh, your love takes me high
Oh, your love takes me.
Track Name: Hello Heaven
Hello, hello heaven
I hear you whisper to come near
but with all this vain ambition
well it clouds the mind and dulls the ears

All this revelation falls like oil down Aarons beard
and in this age of information
you’re the only one that I find real
You’re the only one that I find real

Hello, hello heaven,
I know you’re calling me to come,
But with all these visitations
I am getting more lost in your love

All this revelation falls like oil down Aarons beard
and in this age of information
you’re the only one that I find real
You’re the only one that I find real

Hold me I can’t take it anymore
I am sinking oh I am sinking
The current of your love leads me to the shore
Now I’m believing, now I’m believing
That you love to call me son

Hello
Here I come
I’m falling into your arms
Track Name: Need You
The shadows I hide are the shadows that bind me
These dark corners becoming the walls that define me
And with this weight on my heart I don’t know what to do
But I know that I need you

Well I recently lost love and grief wrapped around me
And I rely on the tears that your Spirit provides me
Still I fail to give like you gave before me
But I know that I need you
Yes I know I need you

The prayers that I pray are the ones that you teach me
So why is my mind in a million pieces?
Oh for the contrite heart is what is your desire and choose
And I know that I need you
Yes I know I need you
Track Name: Satisfied
Break me out and loose my feet
Be the mist that clears to show me that it’s spring
Unbelievable peace release me
I was born and now I see
You’re like honey on the lips of those who seek
You healed my leprosy now I’m alive
Still you’re no bandage you’re serene,

Oh Lord, your love it satisfies me.

Only you could taste this sweet
My mind gets lost in your grace like a real dream
So don’t wake me from this sleep cause I feel alive
Someone weigh me I feel lighter than the clouds
And I aint coming down somehow
You’re my whispering breeze,

Oh Lord, your love it satisfies me.

I’m caught and free
Unchained by peace
This taste wont leave

Oh Lord, your love it satisfies me
Track Name: Wilderness
Out in the desert there is a call
Prepare me a table and invite all the poor
I saw two hands bleeding
And a head hanging low
He said prepare me a way son

To the wilderness go.
To the wilderness go
To the wilderness go spread your hands out in love
To the wilderness go

Make your words gentle
Keep your hands soft
Go fill in the graves that,
You bought for your sons
Oh, I saw a mountain burning with love
And I saw a flame come down from on high
Full of passionate tongues

To the wilderness go
To the wilderness go find the low in heart
To the wilderness go
To the wilderness go I am here by your side
To the wilderness go
