1. Singing Hymns
Come on
First they tell me that I'm living by the devil's way
Then they tell me that God loves me just the same
So what's it going to be? Am I rising up or going down in flames?
Singing hymns to whom it may concern
Living right or doing wrong it just depends on the time
Growing old or dying young either way I don't mind
Just as long as this life I live is mine
Singing hymns to whom it may concern
Take it day by day
All these games that we play
What is wrong and what is right
That ain't for me to decide
So I live to fight another day
Good Lord show me the way

2. Better To Fly

Seven hours east from the place where I lost my mind
Scar tissue's tearing within passages of time
My body's losing sweat and blood from every pore
You can call me crazy but there's nothing I want more
'Cause it's a hell of a ride
until you come crashing down
But it's better to fly
Than never leave the ground
Years flying by so fast they turn into a blur
This search for reason making everything unsure
Now at both ends I sit and watch my candle burn
I ought to slow down but I guess I'll never learn
'Cause it's a hell of a ride
Until you come crashing down
But it's better to fly
than never leave the ground
I know my days are numbered
Someday I'm gonna die
All I know right now is
I'm still alive
Cause it's a hell of a ride
One hell of a ride
Aw Yeah

3. Forward Together

Yesterday morning we were fine
Hours away in the warm sunshine
Now it's cold and its grey
It kinda suits the way I hate this place
But we can't go back to yesterday
Forward together's the only way out
There was a time when I felt brave
You used to love me in the kindest way
Now we're both scared and we're both getting mean
On the verge of losing everything
But we can't go back to yesterday
Forward together's the only way out
Now baby please stand by me
Don't give up on me just yet
I'd die without your loving
And I swear there's better days ahead
I feel like I've been drowning
Clinging so hard I'm pulling you in
But baby we could fly now
And make things better than they've ever been
Yeah I've been thinking
And baby it's no mistake
Working together
Don't you know girl we can escape
So no more waiting
So little time to burn
Let's take a chance at living life on our own terms
Don't want to go back to yesterday
Forward together let's find our way out

4. Go On, Move On


They tore down that old barn to widen the road
Now everyone drives by so fast
How will they ever know it was even there?
And people come and they go
Yeah death awaits us all
But everyone's living so fast
How will they ever know we were here at all?
And we go on
Life moves on
We go on
Life moves on
So who will plant in those fields
Harvest in the fall
Trade convenience for freedom man
That just don't seem like much of a life at all
So let us sing all those songs
Of the ones who are gone
Let all our memories become their legacy
And they'll live on a while
And we go on
Life moves on
We go on
Life moves on
But I don't understand who stays and who goes
I guess that's just something I've
Got to learn to let go
No I don't understand who stays and who goes
Lord I guess that's just something I've got to learn to let go
Go on move on
Go on move on

5. Ten Room Coffin

Read aloud from the gospel of plastic
The patron saint of consumers everywhere
Let retail heal all your pain
And make a purchase from your armchair
But there's no ten room coffin to be buried in
You think you own but you only rent
You can't take it with you
Why would you try?
You don't need it now
You won't need it when you die
Now don't create be afraid of discomfort
Keep your eyes on what you're told you need
Feed that monster within and above you
Just get yours its the land of the fee
But there's no ten room coffin to be buried in
You think you own but you only rent
You can't take it with you
Why would you try?
You don't need it now
You won't need it when you die
So build yourself a ten room home
Fill it full of all your pride
In the end it won't mean a thing
It's all just a waste of time
There's no ten room coffin to be buried in
You think you own but you only rent
You can't take it with you
Why would you try?
You don't need it now
You won't need it when you die

6. Who You Are


Take it from me you'll see things you never thought you'd see
Probably do some things you'll wish you had never done
But don't be afraid our lives lie in the chances we take
And we never know just what's to come
Within your soul there's a river that will always flow
The current will take you where you need to be
So don't hold on
Let it flow even when it's rough
Just be who you are
That'll be enough
And this life is hard but you won't have to travel alone
We'll be here with you even after we're gone
'Cause death's not the end unless you never bother to live
Our souls last forever once we set them free
So find your own way let your heart lead you down the road
When that time comes just let go
And don't hold on
Let it flow even when it's rough
Just be who you are
That'll be enough
I'll give you all that I can as long as I am here
Our lives are way too short to give in to all of our fears
So jump in the river that flows with the rhythm of your heart
And never let anything keep you from being just who you are
Being just who you are
Let the waves carry you on and on
The wind blows the current that'll carry you home
Carry you home
