Track Name: Stubborn Creatures
Look at all of our faces
Slobbering, greedy beings
Hoping we all will be saved
From the world and its new beginnings

Want to be entertained?
Nothing learned and nothing gained

Oh we truly are stubborn creatures…

Using our imaginations
We know it all…seems so fitting
Ignoring all the instructions
We know it all…who are we kidding?

Want to be entertained?
Nothing learned and nothing gained

Oh we truly are stubborn creatures…
Oh we truly are stubborn creatures…

God cant open up to everyone if all that we do
Is dissolve in our problems that we got ourselves into
Can’t open up the heart if the mind is of neglect
The walls intertwine and the paths intersect

Oh we truly are stubborn creatures…
Oh we truly are stubborn creatures…
Oh we truly are stubborn creatures…
Oh we truly are… - See more at: http://www.thefinitebeings.com/listen/#sthash.7IUBoyay.dpuf
Track Name: Utterances
Let’s unleash the utterances
Utterances…Utterances
Let’s unleash the utterances
Utterances…Utterances

Feeling alone…
As if an emptiness haunts you
With each passing breath you grow a weakness inside
You’ve been compromised and you don’t even realize
Oh, I’ve been there…

Now is the time to rise
And break through these chains that bring you down to size
There’s a truth to be found

Feeling hollow…
As if your skin and bones reflect who you are
More than your mind and your soul
You are paralyzed…No remorse in your eyes
Oh, I’ve been there…

Now is the time to rise
And break through these chains that bring you down to size
There’s a truth to be found

(utterances)
Feeling alone as if an emptiness haunts you
(utterances)
With each passing breath you grow a weakness inside
(utterances)
You’ve been compromised
You’ve been compromised
You’ve been compromised. - See more at: http://www.thefinitebeings.com/listen/#sthash.7IUBoyay.dpuf
Track Name: Grasp of its Hold
One of these days all will be known
Beyond what I’ve seen, beyond what I’ve shown
One of these days I’ll see myself clear
They’ll be no misunderstand, miscommunicating, blindness for the seeking
In here…

I try to grow
I try to show that the weakness in me is like a pest running ragged through the world
And in due time I’ll take what’s mine, leave my agenda behind
Because I’m choking on the grasp of its hold

One of these days my possessions will decay
I gain more and more just to watch them fall away
One of these days I hope to grow wise
Break me out of my shell
As I look up to the sky
From down here…

I try to grow
I try to show that the weakness in me is like a pest running ragged through the world
And in due time I’ll take what’s mine, leave my agenda behind
Because I’m choking on the grasp of its hold

And so this story goes
I can wonder but who really knows
If the door I’m trying to get to is open or closed

This worldly fixation throughout the population
We need a destination over here
This worldly fixation throughout the population
We need a realization down here.. - See more at: http://www.thefinitebeings.com/listen/#sthash.7IUBoyay.dpuf
Track Name: Awaken the Night
What’s there to do?
What’s there to say?
If I can’t love you the night is my day

I wake in the evening
Have breakfast at night
Dreaming when the sun comes out
Afraid of the light

Does anyone know how to heal the pain?
Is there anyway to start again?

I’m so tired and I’m so wired
Well I’m so tired and I’m so wired

Nothing can change me
There’s no where to go
Is there an answer? (yes)
What don’t I know?

The moonlight is shining
It helps me forget
All of my sorrows
And things I regret

I’ll never know how to heal the pain
There is nothing you can say to start again

I’m so tired and I’m so wired
Well I’m so tired but I’m so wired…

Let’s awaken the night!

And so the nights drag on
As my mind drifts further away
Drifts away…Each passing day (repeats)

Track Name: The Weeping
Want some music?

How many of us go with life?
How many of us grow with life?
How many of us go with life?
How many of us grow with life?

What will be said at the end of our days?
When we give an account how we were set in our ways
The gnashing of teeth, the weeping…

I’m driving around listening to music and the world outside is in chaos
I’m feeling the sound that we call music and the world outside is in chaos

How many of us pride in ourselves?
How many of us humble ourselves?
How many of us pride in ourselves?
How many of us humble ourselves?

What will become of the lost and unsaved?
Will they be redeemed or are they forever enslaved?
The gnashing of teeth, the weeping…

I’m driving around listening to music and the world outside is in chaos
I’m feeling the sound that we call music and the world outside is in chaos

Safe to say were all diseased
Wash our hands clean
Safe to say were all to blame
Rid us of our pride
Safe to say it’s from within
Use this suffering
To build us up from the inside. - See more at: http://www.thefinitebeings.com/listen/#sthash.7IUBoyay.dpuf
Track Name: Black Hole in the Sky
There’s a man at your door
He asks you if you want more
More of what you do not know
So you tell him to go

There’s a beggar on your street
He says “Would you like something to eat?”
But you don’t know what to say
So you get up and walk away

Why do they know that you are alone?
Everyone you see knows what you did to me

There’s a black hole in the sky
Do you ever wonder why no one else can see but you?
You know what you have to do

Try to love yourself
You won’t love anyone else
Because I know you can’t
It’s the only way to live another day
Will you follow through?
My last advice to you

No matter how hard you try
There’s a hole in your sky.

Track Name: In the Shadows
Late one night I thought of all of my deeds
What worth was I to the world?
Never would follow and with no one to lead
I dissolved in the shadows
Do I ever know my reasons?
Do I ever know my cause?

To keep safe from the ravages of the savages
To numb the pain from the thorns in my side
To keep safe from the ravages of the savages
To have a place to hide…until it subsides

Deep inside I felt this hold over me
The battle over my soul
Both sides determined and striving to succeed
I dissolved in the shadows
What on earth am I here for?
Do I even know the rules?

To keep safe from the ravages of the savages
To numb the pain from the thorns in my side
To keep safe from the ravages of the savages
To have a place to hide…until it subsides

The problem with hiding in the shadows
Is that when the light comes I don’t know where to go
I’m so used to the darkness I forgot what it is to see
This beautiful creation and all it offers me
This is for all of us
This is for all of us

Track Name: Paths of Negativity
Open mind for a new days teaching
Wounded soul for the rebel in me
Walking down the paths of negativity
Hard to stop when its ruins are unseen

I see it paints the picture so very well
I think I’m free but my actions put me into a cell
Lead me out of this place that claims me
Just don’t unlock the door till I see myself clearly

These paths of negativity inspire another melody
To captivate my sanity which has been known to go astray
These paths of negativity bring out my creativity
To captivate my sanity which has been known to go astray

All in all I’m just a lost soul drifting
Off my path into the unknown
Any sense and I would turn around and start again
But my “wants” take me further than I want to go

I know that selflessness is hard to possess
And letting go is a tough thing to digest
Save me from myself and all that rots within me
Take my hardened heart and rejuvenate the feeling

These paths of negativity inspire another melody
To captivate my sanity which has been known to go astray
These paths of negativity bring out my creativity
To captivate my sanity which has been known to go astray

Oh its time to self reflect
Piece together and dissect
The choices I make and the people they effect

These paths of negativity inspire another melody
To captivate me sanity which has been known to go astray
Its moments like these that show us who we are
In this I find a need to reconnect what falls apart
To reconnect what falls apart - See more at: http://www.thefinitebeings.com/listen/#sthash.7IUBoyay.dpuf
Track Name: The Adversary
The world is a devil in the evil that it hides
And the god of this world is the devil in disguise

Eating and sleeping and dreaming and scheming
Repeating…repeating…repeating…repeating
The meaning is breathing behind what were seeing
And many are leaving their faith and belief far behind
It’s a new way of thinking
that leaves a tear in our Creator’s eye

You see He knows the choices we’ve made
And the paths were going to take
Our times are in Your Hand
Please help us to understand

Picking and choosing our lives we are losing
To everything lifeless that we enjoy doing
The faithless are growing
Society’s molding
Humanity pushes and shoves the Hand trying to clean
It’s a new way of thinking
that leads us to believe we don’t have a need

You see He knows the choices we’ve made
And the paths were going to take
Our times are in Your Hand
Please help us to understand

We like to do what we want
Every single day is ours to take
Devil lets us do what we want
It’s too hard to follow Your ways
(Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh) (Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh)
(Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh) (Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh)

(Just let me be)
(Just let me be)
Please let me see…

You see He knows the choices we’ve made
And the paths were going to take
Our times are in Your Hand
Please help us to understand (repeats)

Track Name: Selfish
Is it selfish to want to make it and pay all of our bills?
To be successful…
Is it selfish to want the attention, to need the affection of the listener?
To want the credit so you know that we said it?
So we said it.

I’m that passionate cry of a human that’s tried
Time and time again while I’m fallen inside
Would you pray for me?
Would you plea for me?

What are you trying to teach me?
Why is there so much hurt and pain?
What is left to gain?
How long will I have to wait?

Is it prideful to have expectations that I really don’t deserve?
I am sinful, shameful.
I am hopeful that He paid for it
All of my debt…It was selfless
And I’ve been fed it so I thought that I’d share it
Hope your feeling it…

This passionate cry of a human that’s tried
Stumbling in his steps while he’s fallen inside
Would you pray for me?
Would you plea for me?
Would you pray for me?
Would you plea for me?
Would you help me be the man I want to be?
Would you help me see that there’s so much more than me?

Track Name: The Way
Our world may be fallen but it will be renewed
The path is very narrow and very few make it through
Too many of us stumble or walk the other way
I’ve thought about this many times
Let’s make a change today

I wonder why so many of us profess to be wise yet they are fools inside

We need The Way, The Truth, and The Life
Cause we are finite, finite, finite
We need The Way, The Truth, and The Life
Cause we are finite, finite, finite

The process is a struggle that shapes our character
The pain gets our attention; the truth is shown soon after
Too many of us are blinded following the lost
Whichever way you run to leads you back to the cross

I wonder why so many of us profess to be wise yet they are fools inside

We need The Way, The Truth, and The Life
Cause we are finite, finite, finite
We need The Way, The Truth, and The Life
Cause we are finite, finite, finite

We need The Way, The Truth, and The Life
Cause we are finite, finite, finite

It’s because we are who we are
It’s because we are who we are
Who are we to question?
Who are we to judge?
Who are we? Who are we? - See more at: http://www.thefinitebeings.com/listen/#sthash.7IUBoyay.dpuf
