Kingdom 04:24
are we only half alive embers drifting in the night looking, wandering all the time we seek a kingdom this is not my home this skin and bone the daylight will reconcile the dead and the gone let the kingdom come long have we been on the road but we don't face these hills alone rising from these broken stones we seek a kingdom this is not my home this skin and bone the daylight will reconcile the dead and the gone let the kingdom come I can see it on your face brother, you've been bearing the weight sister, you are more than they say there are whispers of a river flowing in our veins the hope of the after a reckoning day this is not my home these aching bones the fallen, the crucified arise with the dawn let the kingdom come this is not my home this skin and bone the daylight will raise to life the dead and the gone let the kingdom come

oh, when I was young before the war was won I haunted the metal, the hollow machine oh, the mighty guns over the battle lines I heard the rumor rise I held to the iron with smoke in my lungs oh, the raging tide oh, and I could feel the pull down to the sleep below 'cause there ain't no rest in the fight or the silence oh, the crushing blow even so, did hope find a way in the fear and pulled me through the very heart of the deep and freedom's song, sweet upon the waves a hallelujah reaching us where we break
3.
I saw every shattered pane and every shadow in the waiting and every fear without a name I saw every crimson tail light flame and every step beyond the walls and truth lay in the street forgotten but I will not leave you lost can you see, I've loved you all along I will find you I don't fear the night I've stared the darkness in the face and I know the heavy rain and every sweeping scarlet blade but they will never close these blazing eyes I will find you I don't fear the night I'm burning through I won't sleep tonight did you know I saw you fall but did you hear the prayer down the hallway or see those headlights shining late drawing closer, sure as the coming day I will find you I don't fear the night I'm burning through I won't sleep tonight I will find you I won't sleep tonight

Light Song 05:13
keep on holding keep on holding keep on holding holding out hope for me I'm looking to the morning for though I sit in darkness He will shine a light on me though I'm weak, I'm strong though I may have fallen I will rise again and what was sown in weakness will be raised again in power will be raised up in the light so I'm holding I am holding I am holding holding out hope for you

The Train 04:18
come on boys, we'll see where this road gives up blacktop and gasoline, it won't be enough but I keep shifting into neutral while the river's racing by yea I'm sitting in the chamber, locked and loaded, let me fly you won't forget the quakes, they get in your bones and I have seen the flames taking cities whole and all my kings and queens and aces now discarded to the fire every dollar, every boardwalk, every ticket on the line take all these tokens, I don't need them now lay every trophy down in the ground now I have heard a sound in my waking dreams someone's father was calling out, "here come 819" was it the hammer through the floorboards or the rumble of the train or the thunder of the engine through the silence of a name and all these horses, they're rolling on tell all the broken, we're going home was it the hammer through the floorboards or the rumble of the train or the thunder of the engine through the silence of a name I hear the buzzing of cicadas as the evening starts to fade the crumbling concrete of empires, they won't even last the day and every long forgotten story finds the breath of life again all the hymns below the churchyard find again the tongues of men and every tear and every stain, every sin be washed away every grave will be abandoned, even death will pass away
