Track Name: Noah's Sons
We are Noah's sons by our father's faithfulness the curse has been undone
As the waters rise it's no surprise that we are wet but we do not fret and we will not forget

In our father's boat sea and serpent gun for us but we have stayed afloat
Although others have fled we look ahead towards the land through the rocks and past the sand where he will take our hand

Bleeding and distraught has the Lord forsaken him no surely he would not
But here is where he is it seems that this is what he meant when he spoke of the event that would call us to repent

What else can we say? Heaven's voice has called to us for forty nights and days
Ears and eyes we've had to know the path that he has made is the path that we forbade but his mercy still remains

And the floods won't take us down 
And the floods won't overwhelm us
Track Name: Snowed Inside
Snow covers all the earth and I sit inside
Why do I choose this life when I've read your mind

Your word is like soft cotton on my weathered eyes
Like cold lemonade on a Georgia July
Like that sweet breeze up on the mountainside 
Like those autumn leaves out on New Hampshire drive
And I won't forget, I will not forget again. 

Come and take my hand sweet darlin' we'll build a man up from the snow that's lying here we'll build him tall

Oh and we don't know my darlin' how long before the Lord will send him back to dust, but that's true for us all

And I won't forget, I will not forget again.

Your word is like soft cotton on my weathered eyes
Like cold lemonade on a Georgia July
Like that sweet breeze up on the mountainside 
Like those autumn leaves out on New Hampshire drive
And I won't forget, I will not forget again. 
Track Name: The Dragon
Princess locked away
Spends days dreaming
Her father stole the key
She's always singing

Who will come to slay all that's wrong 
The dragon breathes in my lungs

Robin, merry men
Spend days stealing
Robbing all the rich he's always singing

Who will come to slay all that's wrong
The dragon breathes in my lungs

He has come to slay all that's wrong
The dragon breathes in my lungs
Track Name: By You
If five years of vows fulfilled could fit inside a box
I'd see more life than most that's how close you brought me in
Fearing God more than men
Repent, repent and you did my darling so well
Kept me from the hell of this earth

High school was such a strange and unforgiving place
But that's right where we met I can't forget that first slow dance
Fearing God more than men
Forgive, forgive and you did my darling so well 
Kept me from the hell of this earth

By you, by you I'd know the love
By you, by you I'd know that God is love
He is love, he is love

College was really hard 
And freshman year we split
And I cried more than once over the hunch that we were through
Leaving God before men
Repent, repent but I did not darling as well
As you first had from the start
You played your part

By you, by you I'd know the love
By you, by you I'd know that God is love
He is love, he is love

If I'd never read
If I'd never prayed
Christ in you was such a sight that I would see his day

By you, by you I'd know the love
By you, by you I'd know that God is love
He is love, he is love

Wedding bells did chime
On our blessed day
Bride of Christ, bride of mine forever I will stay by you
Track Name: Admiration
We admire your patience through the false allegations
You sit and you give time to the poorest of men 
We admire your laughter and the future you're after 
We trust all that you've done is for all that you've promised to do
Our Father, we admire you

We admire your kindness and the way you unwind us
From the mess that we make and have made for ourselves
We admire your promise and your loving accomplice we hope in all you've said and in all that we're called to pursue our Father we admire you

We admire your wisdom and the mercy that is from a heart that still sings from the purest love song
We admire your closeness and the glory that Moses could see and still live and the sorrows you saw them all through our Father we admire you

We are touched by your weeping and the word you are keeping Lord
We are moved by your passion and the peace that you fashion Lord

We admire you, more than man more than man
Track Name: Death is the Door
Death is the door to heaven, glory and more in Christ.
Through all the pain and though we are slain our dying is gain for us
Death is the door to new life, heaven's galore on earth
Families redeemed and children esteemed, Jerusalem freed for good

Do you hear what I hear when I hear the voice of God?
Do you see what I see when I see the Word of God?

Death is the door that Jesus fought through to give us life
Beaten and hung his prophecy sung he swallowed his tongue for us

Do you hear what I hear when I hear the voice of God?
Do you see what I see when I see the Word of God?

The unsearchable riches of Christ
The approachable Father of lights is there
Track Name: Cincinnati
We packed our bags and caught a cab just outside parliament and Heathrow came and Heathrow went before we said goodbye
Like cats and yarn the years had gone and all we hoped to do we traded in to start a life back in America

There's a fear, a doubt of what is right when things start goin' wrong and all your friends are outta sight, your family said so long
Like whispers in a haunted room you hear the cries and howls but trust the Lord and all his ways and learn to doubt your doubts

Cincinnati will you have me tonight?

The van it came up 75 at quarter past seven, the autumn winds swept across and finally let us in and there it was the cityscape, the river and the reds
The glory of a world gone by and a world that we'd begin

Cincinnati will you have me tonight?

There's a church, a city on a hill with the kindest, smartest folks. They've opened up their families to love me and my wife
Like sheep out on the interstate this flock has saved us whole, and we will ne'er forget the Lord for us in Ohio

Cincinnati will you have me tonight?

Will you call when I call? 
Track Name: Wake Up
Wake up we are not in the dark ages we don't put people in cages doesn’t matter what their age is or their race is
Step up, become who you want to be show the world there's still love in deed and even corporations can bleed

Every child in need is a tragedy but love love sees things differently
But we we've seen an economy out of the suffering, and the hurt and the broken
"Mommy when will daddy be home?" I don't know son

Doesn't matter what side of the ocean we sleep on, we're gonna keep on keep on calling out for Christ's sake
Doesn't matter what side of the ocean we sleep on, we're gonna keep on keep on calling out for His sake

Pennies and calculations, everyone has a destination, except for those who can't move
But we need more statistics to prove that the world is hurting, and bleeding, and broken
"Mommy when will daddy be home?" I don't know son, we don't know son

Doesn't matter what side of the ocean we sleep on, we're gonna keep on keep on calling out for Christ's sake
Doesn't matter what side of the ocean we sleep on, we're gonna keep on keep on calling out for His sake

Wake up wally world, wake up Mickey's girl
Wake up and make up for the time that we've lost
Wake up CEOs, wake up NGOs 
Wake up and make up for the time that we've cost
Wake up middle class, wake up lazy lass
Wake up and make up for the time that we've lost

Wake up we are not in the dark ages we don't put people in cages doesn’t matter what their age is or their race is
Step up, become who you want to be show the world there's still love in deed and even corporations can bleed

Doesn't matter what side of the ocean we sleep on, we're gonna keep on keep on calling out for Christ's sake
Doesn't matter what side of the ocean we sleep on, we're gonna keep on keep on calling out for His sake
Track Name: One Heart
Something is wrong across this land
Too many ghosts too many hands working alone
Something's not right inside our heads
Too many thoughts leading to death living alone

He will give us one heart and one way
He will give us one heart and one way
He will give us one heart

Too many thoughts leading to death living alone

He will give us one heart and one way
He will give us one heart and one way
He will give us one heart and we will love him fore'er
We will love him fore'er 
Forevermore 

We may not turn from him for he is the one who has loved
We may not turn from him for he is the one who has loved us
