Kat Jones Rheanna is one of the greatest songwriters that I have ever met. She's an unbelievably powerful guitar player, performer, and one of my best friends. I wholeheartedly believe that the later comment does not bias me, however. Favorite track: Steel Boat Astray.

Track Name: Raise My Hands
Well I loose my plans, I let go again.
I know there is no way apart from Him
Where I've planned my steps, direct my path
And I come today to surrender at last

I raise my hands, my hands, my hands
I raise them high and I let go again
I raise my hands, my hands, my hands
Well I will walk the length and stand
I will stand again

To taste this love and to hold it near,
I can't count the ways that it would persevere
And the grandest eyes that I could look through
You gave vision clear to unveiled truth

So I raise my hands, my hands, my hands…

When my heart is stone instead of flesh
When I see no good and I have nothin left
I will raise my hands to give that which has no name
And you will make it real, so I can feel again

So I raise my hands, my hands, my hands...
Track Name: Walls of Snow
You must try to bypass disillusion, it's keeping them down; it makes them confused.
Even though the trouble is within, there's always someone to blame
The dark cloud in the tin covered box that their heart's in.

You must stop questioning yourself, always worried about effecting somebody else.
And you can't help bringing truth to the surface,
People swimmin around in a picture they're producing.
It's always too slow for them to grow.

Cause here we know there's always some way out.
Building walls of snow in the middle of a drought.
Does it make it better now?

There is one piece of lost information, they say too many words may make a display.
So they buy the listeners a big birthday present, there is nothing inside
But it sounds awfully pleasant.
Keep you sick, Don't know what you missed.

Cause here we know there's always some way out.
Building walls of snow in the middle of a drought.
Does it make it better now?

And I know better now.
Swallowing rainbow covered clouds.
And it's all I can run from to the truth.
I know where I come from, do you?
When the day arrives too late,
You'll lye awake, starring straight
Cause you know, you've been building walls of snow
Ya, you know, you been building walls of snow.
Track Name: Pull the Moon
Winter's racing up and down my veins again.
I have not believed the things of You for them.
But you're on my side
The weight that correlates is carefully aligned.

How many hallelujia's break the page
Before my heart can truly know their weight.
Some things are too reverent.
I have not nearly reached them yet.

We fall asleep in the sunlight only to pull the moon in place
The world will move us to follow and lose our views within it's race.

The calm never stays too long.
Soon enough so tangled, don't even know it's gone
Till it's much too late
The frozen stare of my reflection casted off the frame.
Track Name: By the Hand
In the shade of this dream I will follow you.
Cause I believe nothin else will do.
All that washes me is in your hands.

Oh but I got so much time to kill.
Boredom will haunt me, I need a thrill.

Won't you take me by the hand,
Take me far away, I'm starving for another land.
All your glory and your perfect, perfect plan.

I'm barely a grip, holding to your ties.
If I should slip, hold me to your side.
So many ropes leading to demise.

I've tried to choose so carefully
All of these sorrows won't let me be

Won't you take me by the hand
Take me far away, I'm starving for another land
All your glory and your perfect, perfect plan...
Track Name: 6:00
Six o'clock in the morning, alright… alright.
I feel my head startin to spin.
Way too early for sunshine, my body thinks it's sleeping in.

So I sing
nananana…
Alright, alright

The day was long the night was short.
And now I'm wishing for some more… sleep.
But this I can not afford, so I will hold on.
I will hold on, singing

Nananana…
alright, alright.

The morning is so unforgiving
And coffee's the only thing that takes.
Tell me is this the cost for living, when all I wanna do is stay up late
Singing

nananana….
alright, alright….
Track Name: I Want
I raise questions of my fate here, but I know
I know He will follow through.
These days are like mountains caving in,
But I know, I am not hollow.

And each hour shades my youthful
full heart.

When I want
To be free
And I want
To see
Just for once
I believe
But I want
And You know what I need.

These tired, lonely heartaches for the world
They can not be silenced.
And I am a piece of work myself
But I know heaven can fix this

Would I cry myself to sleep at night
Over this?

When I want
To be free
And I want
To see
Just for once
I believe
But I want
And you know what I need...
Track Name: You Are Not the First One
Give me a chance, without all the hangup's
You're questions are just deflections of trust.
And I can answer into the evening,
But would you believe things you don't understand?

You are not the first one to think that you have got a
Better explanation than the death of my son.
And I am never forceful, some will come and some will go
But I am not changing, just taste what I've done.

The seasons of life will always amaze you.
Your weaknesses may show you a need.
They say I'm a crutch, pawn me off as religion
It's too hard to trust things you just can not see.

But you are not the first one…

When moments are over what is the question
If there's nothing left to hide behind?
Philosophies, traditions, even good manners,
What's left is the truth and you just can not hide.

Cause you are not the first one...
Track Name: Alright With Me
I am opening up a door to let the whole world in.
Man no longer has to work or wage to pay for his own sin.
Now you can listen or talk over the sound, but I am always knocking.
I never tire of the door in the way, it's just the front screen locking me out and..

Is this safety enough for you?
You say, "It's alright with me."
I don't want to change the real you
Because you're alright with me.
I just got so much better to offer
"you know it's alright with me"
I'll keep one hand in my pocket till you unlock it
Cause it's alright with me to stand here and try.

The seasons come and the seasons go
I feel the whole world staring to change.
You are no longer young, you feel your body start to age.
And now the questions in your heart are wondering what it is to be alive or dying
And I am just sitting here, trying to educate you, dear
And what in the world are you finding?

Is this safety enough for you….
Track Name: Again
Wake me out of a desert, I climb.
Freedom is wherever I find Him.

Again.

Can I be alone with you my love,
I need water from above.
Track Name: Water
He holds me like serenity, poetry
Skillfully driving me, infringe upon privacy.
Everything dear to me, all of my anamoly
The things that you don't usually see.

And I take form of the infantile hold-
The seed that grows, the melodies that mold me,
The free and everlasting glimpse…

Everything that's near to me
Everything that's dear to me.

He's like the water that runs over me
Too easy to lose my grip
Feels as if my soul is washed out to sea
Don't want to lose what He made me to be
I don't want to lose what He made me to be.
Track Name: It Will Find You
After the wars that we have weathered it all, I see the light reflection of Your victory.
I am the peddler, the far away land I seek.
Pieces of gold I've sold, abundance of all the treasures I bring.

So off with it all, I beg you to offer it all
And don't let it bend you

Cause no matter where you are, It will find you
No matter where you are, it will blind you.

Oceans may manifest across a dry land, and yet so unbelieving with all of the evidence.
In a stolen city, I am walking a golden road.
Narrow, it may be fitting for those unwilling to sell their souls.

So off with it all, I beg you to offer it all
And don't let it bend you

Cause no matter where you are, it will find you.
No matter where you are, it will blind you.
Track Name: We Will Never Be Bored
I'm always dreaming of the summertime in winter,
And I'm running through a field aflame with nothing but your name.
I'm always speaking through a tired and limited version
Of what I wanted you to see.

And I'm sorry

But there will be a brand new body
I get excited all the time
There will be perfect evening with always something
To fill the sky
And we will never be bored
We will never be bored
Or bound by time.

I am awaiting an arrival of perfection
Though I know I am short, to be sure.
And being prey to time is something that should not apply
But to learn the lessons that we must endure

And I'm sorry

But there will be a brand new body
I get excited all the time
There will be perfect evenings with always something
To fill the sky

And we will never be bored
We will never be bored
Or bound by time.
Track Name: Steel Boat Astray
Waking in a steel boat astray
Fever of the midnight to play.
And I am not afraid now,
The sky has turned to grey

And the color's green all around
The leaves are frozen and my mind crowds
I am not the same now
How could I ignore?
