Lyrics from "All The Wisdom:"

** - co-written by Brant Satala

"All the Wisdom" *

You can't walk into the same river twice,

you may lose more than your life.

Gotta ditch the baggage of too much advice,

'cause you're not the rock of ages.

Don't claim a check that's not a toll.

Don't claim a thought not thought up on your own.

When you don't pin your life down,

and don't try to cling,

it will flow like water, goes away, and comes back again.

I'm still afraid of the dark,

no matter what I learn, all the wisdom I impart.

Still afraid of the fall, from the weight of it all,

Always hoping for, a new start

Don't blow your earnings, cut the plastic into shreds,

you'll end up like me, working 'til the end.

Treasure your health, watch your back and protect yourself

and don't give it all away to anybody else.

Try to take it all in, but not to fast your head will spin,

sample your vices in moderation

Enjoy life, find a wife and hold her tight,

and share the view of every star-shone night.

"Close the Door"

Would I have to ask if I were crazy, to the old man sitting on the porch?

I asked him "why" and he told me "maybe"

I get the feeling I've been here before.

I start to walk down the ghost street.

Carrying candles for those in my past.

There's a fire where the old church used to be.

Ignoring questions of things that don't last.

Visions flash, hopes are dashed.

You were a wonder as once before.

Still haunting, but not believing.

Behind my face, I'll close the door.

How many nights must I lie awake,

praying for time's hands to fold.

My last tie to you is now at stake,

and her eyes look away when your story's told.

I stand alone, on the edge of the hill

Sensing what you must feel.

Like you once before, I will

choose what is mine and what is real.

I had a dream you were still alive, I know the place where you've chosen to hide.

With arms all around me, I'm shaking inside.

"Would I have to ask if I were crazy?" Said the old man sitting on the porch.

He asked me "why" and I told him "maybe"

I get this feeling ...

"Higher You Fly"

You used to be, a little more than the size of my hands.

Then you grew to be, so much more than you'll ever understand.

A gift from above, a soaring dove.

You will guide me through, so many storms.

You make it hard to watch you grow.

Higher and higher you fly, away from here

Sooner or later you'll find your way through the years

I never knew true beauty, until I saw your face

I never knew purity, it is your way

A cheerful laugh, a calming smile

to bring me back to where I started

You make it hard to let you go.

Higher and higher you fly, away from here

Sooner or later you'll find your way through the years.

Higher and higher you fly, away from here.

Sooner or later you'll find you can overcome your fears.

Young and new, proud and bright

You came to me in the daylight

Full of life, you bring me hope

and take me where I need to go.

So innocent and full of life

in time you will, begin your flight.

In my heart, you'll forever stay

starting now on this special day.


After all is said and done,

we count our losses to see who's won.

it's after all these years that you say, "I'm free."

And the darkness seems to bury me,

it's getting darker by the day.

Although I know where I need to be, I cannot be free

I can't believe how it's all fallen on me,

I can't hide this war inside.

I'm glad that you're free, but I'm still inside "me."

Changing my days, and hiding my face,

There's a new division here, I just can't trace.

I'm sorry to say, it ended this way.

After I held you in times of grief,

while I sat waiting.

I still stand here in disbelief,

still dreaming and wanting.

Now you admit, you've found peace.

And I try to find what it all meant.

I'll finally find my way through this,

I'll become content.

"The Letting Go" **

You gave it away, from the moment you surrendered

and were led astray, to a reality tender

For the first time, it's the mark of a change

for the last time, innocence deranged.

An invitation, withdrawn without reason

My confusion, a good friend's act of treason

I was one of some forgotten "loose ends,"

and he a coward, betrayed me in one weekend.

The strength is in the letting go, a voice inside releasing

You can't hold onto what is lost, just keep it in the heart beating.

You were the chosen one, for one hundred weeks

I was, at the time, all I thought I wanted to be.

Left alone, in the end, eventually

Scratching my head, in a room full of debris

You can have the best of me, if it's what you believe

I gave you all a man can give, but you chose to deceive

It's time to rise, a time for compromise

between the fearful and the wise ...

"Your Name"

Waiting for a sunset that doesn't end, seeing my reflection on grains of sand

Writing these letters I will never send, wondering if I'll ever be free.

Free to walk along this beach, free to tast the salt-laced wind

Free to admit she's out of reach, free to leave these things behind.

And when I can stand, I'll write your name in the sand

Knowing you won’t understand..

Of all I made up in my little mind, and of all that ended up being true.

You used to tell me all the time, that God owes me nothing, and neither do you.

Now I run from the hourglass, and race with the thoughts in my head.

And I go on without you, with you locked inside my head.

When I can stand, I'll write your name in the sand,

knowing you may never understand.

And on this land, I stake my claim in your name,

until the tide takes it away.

and as I stare at the horizon,

and hide from the glare of the sun

and lie on unformed glass

I burn the letters sent from the past

"The Wind, The Water and the Woman"

She's staring at the stars tonight, but she's the brightest one herself.

And I stand here speechless, unaware of anything else

And when she looks into my eyes, she says she sees right through me

Part of this island's beauty, the water, the wind and the trees.

What would be more perfect, than beginning everyday with you?

Promise me when we reach dry land, everyday will be brand new.

So many months went by, when I could only hope and dream.

Knowing my life is better, it's really as good as it seems.

I hope it's me she sees, I hope it's me she needs.

I've been taken to a higher place, I hope it's me she believes in.

Now on a floating pedestal she stands, with every move I'm held in her arms.

I hold my head in my hands, unaware of where we are.

When she looks into my eyes, she says she sees right through me

With all of life's beauty, she's now a part of me.


They started with the best of intentions,

and the wisdom of naive hearts.

While the sediment of corruption

would slowly tear them apart.

She became more and more beautiful

while he wove his web of lies.

Which blinded him from her heart,

a lust for power in his eyes.

One love, once strong

one love divided.

One right, one wrong.

Two lives, misguided.

He wanted others to fear him,

while she secretly carried their child.

She only wanted to be near him,

and he only wanted to stray from the light.

One love, one truely tragic ending - to be told once again.

One man, one woman and one entire universe -

to feel their pain.

In the end, he was left all alone

Her heart broken, she was left to die

He took his place far from his home

and abandoned his once-charmed life.

"A New Song" (bonus track)

It's raining on the window, it's late at night and I can't sleep

I marvel at how fast thoughts flow, to some places hidden deep.

I travel the world until the sun returns, where painted children shout in the streets

When will our leaders ever learn? When can we all stand on our feet?

A new world we can't escape. Something wrong, we must erase

Another day, a new chance awaits, for us all

Today we sing a new song, in the name of peace, with voices heavenly

Tomorrow belongs to you and me, across all lands, and over the seas

The insane crashed our planes, and burnt a whole in a favorite place

Are we destined to outlive these stories, or to repeat our mistakes?

A new world we can't escape. Something wrong, we must erase

Another day, a new chance awaits, for us all

Today we sing a new song, in the name of peace, with voices heavenly

Tomorrow belongs to you and me, across all lands, and over the seas
