trackonrepeat I know I'm super late to this party but this is really such a cozy album, feels like listening to two of your close friends put on an acoustic performance in your home. Favorite track: Apathy At Its Best (I Got Soul).

A house is not a home when you're left all alone I've got too much fight, but not enough plight I'm runnin' all around , tryin' to hold my ground Comin' up for air, tryin' to prove I'm not scared A man should make his mark, not run from the dark I've got too much bark, and not enough bite Wastin' all my time, running through all the lines I don't know how, but one day I'll find I got soul I see how things go down, they give you the run around These unfortunate truths, fall to the ground Which'll drown us first, the debt or the pride? Apathy at its best, how long can we hide? You've captured my mind But not my heart Don't call me unkind I'm just doing my part You have my head I've still got heart By my count That sets me apart

Oh she’s got a way with words It’s like lightning and fire and everything in between True feelings are seen not heard An innate desire, far from routine And if you ask me for truth That’s why I’m singin’ this song, so just follow along Life can bring the best of us down Your destination means nothing if you cannot follow through It’s the simple things that are hardest to learn Whenever you’re feelin’ blue I will carry the pain; bare that burden for you ‘Cause everything that you do Is part of learning who you are And I’m, learning to be Now I’m, learning to be And I’m, finding out That I, I barely know me

In My Heart 04:07
I’ve got a little bluebird in my heart That wants to sing, wants to get out But I’m too tough for him There are songs that I would sing If my memory let me write them out But I’m too tired for that And buried deep inside Of everyone I know There is something that implies That we are not alone And this bird that’s in my heart Wants to get out, would love to be heard But I'm too clever for my own good That bird cannot be free Until the day that I accept That we are not what we have been In my pocket I keep these words, Written and said by better men In the hopes that when I’m feeling down I will read them to myself and remember What they mean to me

Two birds hang around the top of my tower Whistling and flapping and flying away Don’t try and tell me that I’m like the birds 'Cause I’m in a cage and I’ve got no wings Darling I would change my name to be near you We’ll side with love instead of contempt Tell me oh enemy, would you set this bird free And fly through the rain to the eye of the storm When our bodies lay melting into one I felt my shackles fall off Love is a trust fall from a high balcony Please say you’ll be there to catch me Dawn awoke and the sun crashed around us Sparkled and shone on the smooth of our skin Chaos in whispers and passion in secret Kept out of sight, but not out of mind Sometimes I wonder, why you and me Was it meant to be sweeter because of the strife But all that I know is all that I feel That I would give my world for you

Hidden Away 04:17
When the birds sing do they think of the notes and the progressions? When a bell rings does it worry that its tone is too aggressive? If for 100 heartbeats we could sing like the birds Boasting and laughing and proud of our words Oh the sound that could pour from my soul If only I could let it go When the waves crash in their chaos the disorder will not obey us When the wind blows does it notice the voices below it? If for 100 miles that wind could carry our song Would our hearts go with it, singing along? There's a rhythm that runs through our veins Hidden away 'cause we're just too afraid To show anyone what we're made of That our courage will just end in shame

There was a boy And like every story there was a girl too Quite simply she said no Where was he to go? He said, “maybe if I do better, Things will work out for me, advantageously” Set off to gather an army He hired the best mercenaries Set off and set up camp Set down laws and set around fires and stated his desires Head east and conquer coast to coast Leaving trails of fire and taking prisoner most What he found After conquering all around Is that the grass is not greener In any offset town Then the stars came down Saw the error of his ways But much to his dismay This nine year old boy had already taken over Most of northern Europe But with a chocolate factory constructed in every conquered town He quickly established world peace

Well it's summer time and the goin's fine Gonna head on south down the red line Ridin' this train wherever it'll go Gonna see if we can get ourselves down to Mexico It’s been three long weeks hoppin’ trains Followed the Mississippi round to New Orleans Fishin’ for some supper haven’t eaten all day Can’t buy a proper meal with nothin’ to pay Hey hey, throw off your fears, be rid of your tears Leave behind your pain as this train rolls on Texas heat; New Mexico sky Watching all them states as they fly by It’s been a wild ride, I wouldn’t change a thing Border’s comin’ up, c’mon let’s sing Why, why, why? Why are we here? It’s that same old question everywhere we go Oh woah oh the only difference is we’re South of the Border You can change where you go but it doesn’t change who you are

about

Soul is a collection of songs that we feel relate to the subject of the album. Heart warming and hopeful, we recorded these specific songs to help others find that despite the world being at times cold and heartless, we all still have soul.
