The Journey Into - from "The Journey Into" 

i. THE BARRIER FALLS

For a moment, touch the sky
for a moment, you can fly
if sunlight will fall today
for a moment, who am I
for a moment, for a try
as the barrier falls today

All too soon, what am I
all too soon, you and I
fly to the end of time
all too soon, I'm falling fast
all too soon, a fading past
is gone with no reason or rhyme

ii. RECKLESSNESS

Spending life so helpless
my world has fallen apart
spending life so friendless
I'm praying for one new start

Taking on the challenges
that I'm faced with everyday
facing all the differences
so things will change someday

I'm not ready for this
how could I be ready for this?
I need to find another way
to hold on for one more day

It's deliverance that I need
with no warnings left to heed
as I rise above the restlessness
I find a sense of carelessness
a sense of loss, a sense of life
a pretense of my recklessness

Trying to wait patiently
for things that carry weight
a greater hope of faithfulness
is hope I can't create

Looking for the solution
or an answer from the sky
things will start to fall in place
when I live outside the lie

Do you hear the thunder
as the clouds prepare
for somber rain?
Do you ever wonder
why life is strange
and full of pain?

It's deliverance that I need
with no warnings left to heed
as I rise above the restlessness
I find a sense of carelessness
a sense of loss, a sense of life
a pretense of my recklessness

iii. THE ROAD DOWN

In the dark I close my eyes
there's an image of you deep inside
and every day that passes by
part of me is gone with the tide

My thoughts reflect too far
as I wonder where you are
this fear has found a home
and lies deep within the bone

On a clear and distant night
with no heat from summer light
I begin to see the end
in the wake of fate's new trend

I have no way to clear my sight
I have no sense of wrong or right
as I force my will to go
a direction no map can show

And as I find a way
down the wandering road
I feel a sense of sadness
I steal a sense of hope

I have what's in my mind
what I need is what I can find
on this road that leads me down
while my head spins 'round and 'round

iv. WHERE I STAND IN THE LIGHT

Now the storm, the storm is raging
and I feel it inside tonight
and since the norm is always changing
I can't find where I stand in the light

All the lack of care I've shown
has left me lost without a home
I'm playing roles not meant for me
I'm making goals not meant to be

For a moment what would I give
to see the day end this night
all too soon I'm forced to live
with no dawn in my sight

Where do I stand
can't someone tell me?
I've been searching
searching all this time
it's not what I planned
but something tells me
I've been waiting too long for a sign

What I feel I've had to steal
what I've got is all that's real
what I've got I've had to steal
what I feel is all that's real

Now the storm, the storm is raging
and I feel it inside tonight
and since the norm is always changing
I can't find where I stand in the light

And the storm is raging on

The answers I'm seeking
are on the horizon
all questions are fleeting
in the storm that's raging on
the storm that is raging
is where I walk into the light

v. THE RAGING STORM (instrumental)

vi. DELIVERANCE

In my search I found the path
now my mind is freed at last
all thoughts that plague me
are stripped away
as I find the meaning
in the dawn of day

In the forefront of my mind
is what I left behind
in this long journey's end
I'm taken to a new light
what I had from the start
is the thing that was right
if only I had seen
deliverance was in me

And the storm, the storm was raging
I could feel it inside that night
and since I was set on changing
I have found what to stand for
and what is right

It's deliverance that I've found
with no warnings left to sound
'cause I rose above the restlessness
to find a sense of carelessness
a sense of loss, a sense of life
deliverance from my recklessness
