Here's a brand new song from what will be the follow-up to 'With a Breath & a Hope'. We're hoping to create something awesome in early 2014, but until then, think of this song as a gift from us to you. Be yourself!


Is this the way I recover long after the fight?
Is it the reason I endure?
Every window presents the way I'll discover which version is right
I guess I'm beating out of time

I'll take myself away
Where I feel more
A hunger
Worth fighting for

I miss the 'hey are you game let's adventure tonight'
When did the motivation blur
Driven by dreaming and seeking
Naive but alight
In the same way I'd like to own today

I could be right there beside all the uninspired and bored
I'd rather live with a love and desire
Call me self righteous (oooohhhh)

What's left to say
You live like it's a shame
We're not the same
Why say so

We've gone wrong (ooooo)
The only way we're going to make it right
Is moving backwards from the lies
And healing a part that we hide
I doubt I could ever doOOOO
Enough to sustain life
It's alright I'm only in this for
Making the moments from me to you
