Lyrics

Years

Written By: Zach Wiley

"Years"

Years ago my friends, you made a way for me to go freely
When you knew I'd only hurt you again.
This hollow mind is filled with off-beat time
And the way which I go is upward again.

"Give you place to roam, knowing I've called you home.
And it's gifts from the Palace Green abide over everything"

Once alone, my friend, you made a way for me to breathe in barren and dry lands.
This hollow heart is filled with much charm and the way which I go, pushed by your hand.

And you said...

"Give you place to roam, knowing I've called you home.
And it's gifts from the Palace Green abide over everything"

Wreck The Scene

Written By: Zach Wiley

"Wreck The Scene"

One day you'll find me.
Laying low. No sympathy.
Everything is dying.
Come help me wreck the scene.

All I know, man is I'm gonna wreck the,
All I know, man is I'm gonna wreck the scene.
All I know, man is I'm gonna wreck the,
All I know, man is I'm gonna wreck the scene.

Smoke and fire. Crying.
To pave the corner of Tongue and Cheek?
Little boy, just stop your crying.
Come help me wreck the scene.

All I know, man is I'm gonna wreck the,
All I know, man is I'm gonna wreck the scene.
All I know, man is I'm gonna wreck the,
All I know, man is I'm gonna wreck the scene.

I'm Not Waiting

Written By: Mitch McClure/Zach Wiley

"I'm Not Waiting"

Apathy sinks in as time grows thin.
Days turn into weeks and years.
Falling far in sin; where to begin.
Days turn into weeks and years.

Someday I'll be the man I want to be.
I'm not waiting.

Urgency's not dear to me.
What's clear is this fear of me; of me.
Falling far in sin; where to begin.
Days turn into weeks and years.

Someday I'll be the man I want to be.
I'm not waiting.

Time's Not Slow (Picture Frame)

Written By: Zach Wiley

"Picture Frame"

She was everything on the day she had to go.
From 100 degrees till the ground's caked high in snow.
I'd still give anything to go back, but time ain't slow.
There's a picture frame; A light of the day,
But you're in the way. You're all I know.
I've been seeing things in the dark. Objects glow.
And I can't help but think that my mind puts on a show;
A color display when you're walking through that door.
There's a color display, this mind in decay,
But you're in the way.
You're all I know, but time ain't slow.
You're all I know, but time ain't slow.
Where does it go?

Another Light

Written By: Zach Wiley

Another Light

One ticket, fifteen hours to where I go.
I'm thinking.
On this sandy road, the heat makes me mellow.
I'm riding all alone, the stars are bright on this night,
And I know where I'll fit in.
Blue Ridge in spring time does me in.

Now I don't have the power to turn the way the leaves change but gladly I know who does.
Who is, will be, and once was.
I'm riding all alone. The stars are bright on this night,
And I know where I'll fit in. Blue Ridge in summer.

Where you can see me in another light.
Where all my cares seem alright.
Come and claim this night where you can see me.
