Track Name: Thrice - Open Water
Ten thousand men sleep down with Davy Jones
With stolen treasure they tithe
The open water chills me to my bones
But it's the only place that I feel alive

The ocean floor begins to disappear
I sense that terrible depth
The open water is my only fear
But I'll sail as long as I still have breath in me

I'm starting to believe the ocean's much like you
'Cause it gives and it takes away

Between the devil and the deep blue sea
I stare into the abyss
The open water is an awful thing
But I'm anxious till the anchor is aweigh

I'm starting to believe the ocean's much like you
'Cause it gives and it takes away

I'm starting to believe the ocean's much like you
'Cause it gives and it takes away
Track Name: Future of Forestry - Closer to Me
I wish I could feel all the strength of Your peace
Inside me building love endlessly
I wish I could fall in a sea of Your light
While the brilliance around me, watch it chase away night

Closer to me
Oh, I want You to be even closer to me

I wish I could feel just the warmth of Your breath
Around me as I lie on my bed
I wish I could taste of Your sweet ruby wine
As You lift me to heaven, to the place where we shine

Closer to me
Oh, I want You to be just closer to me

For the day I await 'cause my heart knows I found You
And I'm still looking for You

And the day I await for my heart knows I found You
Yet I'm still looking for You
Track Name: Alex Hwang - Goodnight Moon
My mother wears rosy glasses,
Goes to church and prays to Jesus till she passes out
By the road of our house is my dad,
in his heart lives a poet and sad-faced
Clowns never made my brother smile,
he's a devil dog, running strong never tire.

I am my brother's brother, redundant wonder,
misunderstanding how we're all standing under
The same old sun yet we love no one but ourselves
even that just goes to hell...

"Well, well," said the sun to the moon by the stars.
"How far will they run till it all falls apart..."
"I don't know... I am just your reflection.
But I know they will hope they will dream
when they see me lighting up the night,
I'm fighting with the tide, I'm waving them goodnight."

They'll soon wake up to your sunlight,
checking that the time's right time's right on your...
Heal these holes that fill this road with Holy Ghosts and broken notes.

I just want to shout out loud, your name in this crowd,
And if you hear somehow won't you turn around

Cause in your eyes, I see my soul,
yes I see my soul, my God, my soul

"Don't be so set in your ways," said the moon back to the sun.
"They will learn, they will change, they are only human.
Don't you know they are just our reflection.
And I know they will hope, they will dream
when they see me lighting up the night,
I'm fighting with the tide, I'm waving them goodnight."

Goodnight Moon, Morning Sun,
Evening Stars and Little Ones.
Learn to hope, sleep to dream
find love in everything

Cause in my mom and my dad and my brother too,
I love for them and I sing for you.
Track Name: Jon Foreman - The Moon is a Magnet
The moon is a magnet
Everyone's at it
Everyone's had it
Love is a sadness
Love is a madness
We are the addicts

What are we if we're not in love?
What are we if we're not in love?
These are the cages
A kiss is contagious
It will betray us all
A kiss will betray us all

Somebody told me
That everyone's phony
'Til somebody's lonely
I hope that you're lonely
I hope that you're only
Waiting to phone me

What are we if we're not alone?
What are we if we're not alone?
These are the cages
A kiss is contagious
It will betray us all
A kiss will betray us all

The moon is a magnet
Everyone's at it
Everyone's had it
Track Name: Switchfoot - Awakening
Face down with the LA curbside endings
With the ones and zeros.
Downtown was the perfect place to hide.
The first star that I saw last night was a headlight
Of a man-made sky, but man- made never made our dreams collide,
Collide.

Here we are now with the falling sky and the rain,
We're awakening
Here we are now with our desperate youth and the pain,
We're awakening
Maybe it's called ambition, you've been talking in your sleep
About a dream, we're awakening

Last week found me living for nothing but deadlines,
With my dead beat sky but, this town doesn't look the same tonight
These dreams started singing to me out of nowhere
And in all my life I don't know that I ever felt so alive,
Alive
