Track Name: "Fight No More"
I used to fight at my expense
I used to struggle, no matter the consequence
I used to stand in my defense
Now I often lounge in my own indifference

I've seen a change in my demeanor
I often choose the path that's easier
I've learned the grass is never greener
My supply of angst is far leaner

It's not an act of treason
It's not an act of war
I don't seem to want to fight anymore

I seem to speak a little slower
I voice my opinion a little slower
My temper burns a little colder
I lost that chip I kept on my shoulder

It's not an act of treason
It's not an act of war
I don't seem to want to fight anymore
Track Name: "Amazes Me" (2003 Remix)
I can't comprehend
I don't seem to understand
Your love amazes me
And I don't seem to grasp
The meaning of it all
Your love amazes me

Your love, it reaches out to me
It knows no boundaries
A never-ending source of peace
Consuming all that's been
It reaches deep within
Your love, it amazes me

How far can you reach
Tell me how far can your run
Your love amazes me
Thought guilty I now stand
So unworthy of your love
Your love amazes me

Your love, it reaches out to me
It knows no boundaries
A never-ending source of peace
Consuming all that's been
It reaches deep within
Your love, it amazes me
Track Name: "Amnesty"
I seek my freedom, I seek release
Yet my only crime are the words that I speak
I seek compassion, I seek reprieve
But I won't ask permission for the things I believe

I search for acquittal, I long for grace
There's no absolution, but my convictions remain
I search for pardon, I ask for remission
But I won't yield my tenets or my peaceful expression

Give me amnesty, give me life
Give me freedom, it's my human right
Give liberty, keep your death
I'm still breathing, and I'm not finished yet
Give me amnesty

Give me amnesty, give me life
Give me freedom, it's my human right
Give liberty, keep your death
I'm still breathing, and I'm not finished yet
Give me amnesty
Track Name: "Flood"
Burned beyond recognition in my moment of glory
I've been scarred beyond repair as I relayed my story
I've tasted my own sweat mixed with my blood
Sensed my death in the air as I drown in a flood

Endured the blows of the faithful as I attended to their needs
Felt the spear pierce my side when I harkened to their pleas
Taste the kiss of a traitor as I endeavored to hide
Felt the blows of the hammer as I lay me down to die

Flood, washing over me
Flood, filling my mind
Flood, takes control of me
Flood leaving me behind

I taste the fruit of my good deeds only to choke on the rind
Found relief in my steady progress as I slowly fell behind
Found peace in my contentment as a battle raged within
Immersed my self in grace as I died for my sins

Flood, washing over me
Flood, filling my mind
Flood, takes control of me
Flood leaving me behind
Track Name: "Peace Tonight"
Peace tonight, let there be peace tonight
We will fight no more, we will fight no more

Throw down your arms
And come out not fighting
Throw up your hands
And battle no more
Raise the white flag
No red badge of courage
All's fair in love
And none's fair in war

Peace tonight, let there be peace tonight
We will fight no more, we will fight no more

State your demands
Prepare every grievance
Speak your mind
Let's meet halfway
Prepare to concede
Prepare to listen
Some compromise
Will go a long way

Peace tonight, let there be peace tonight
We will fight no more, we will fight no more
