I face this horizon with the sun coming up turn the sky into rust I’m still in this mine pushing numbers and lines but I work cuz I must history yields to a conscious that one sacrifice is enough The blood on this page serves me right cuz I’ve saved up too much emptiness And everything in Nature has it Everything in nature has it’s own will Like my love for what’s real In these times I’m alone with a heart too feel and a mind to know And what’s left here to chance If our fates never wrong Meant to rise up against or go along So what if I turned towards the place in the heart that we all fear the most Where nothing is sacred kills the sinners and saints haunts the past like a ghost And what can they ask of you if you’re still tied to the pain from below Where all of your life can be lost to the past in the end you will know And everything in Nature has it Everything in nature has it’s own will Like my love for what’s real In these times I’m alone with a heart too feel and a mind to know And what’s left here to chance If our fates never wrong Meant to rise up against or go along

Here am I not equal to, the will I might of had Had I not had seen in you, the place where I began As helpless as the day you were born, like soul in the schoolyard Where everything that's to become has happened once before And some will say that time is like a wheel Turning around and around Tomorrow it's all surreal But time is a straight line against your will Never again to be found, never again to feel And you build your life on the graves of the forgotten And you're justified by the things that they might have done And a thousand years will pass by like one moment and turn this wood to stone And everything that ever was has happened once before And some will say that time is like a wheel Turning around and around Tomorrow it's all surreal But time is a straight line against your will Never again to be found, never again to feel The soul, It lives through the body To live on tomorrow, it lives on today Here am I not equal to, the will I might of had Had I not had seen in you the place where I began

The dreams that will come to you when you’re wide open To let them into your mind happens more often times Not while you’re waiting no not while you’re waiting for anything And we’ve all got a story of some happy ending Like the man who lived next to the man who lost everything And outside these games we play does loosing or winning mean anything The sun shines today And God is in the garden As I lie awake And dream of another life Back in 1718 I lost all my hope then I was drowned in this river and brought back to life again For all I know now I will die on the day I find hope again Because the devil here worships just one man’s religion with a shadow cast over the light that may reach him you show me an angel and I’ll show you a devil that follows him The sun shines today And God is in the garden As I lie awake And dream of another life And above the door I found keys that were left behind To hold back the fear that I lock myself in behind And outside this room I will find some new fear I can hide behind And if we all started over with just one new decision That was made for the sake of or in spite of my living here And for all I know now I will question the truth From the meaning I’ve found for all that I can do When the sun shines today And God is in the garden As I lie awake To dream of another life

When you’re out there where that highway ends When the meaning’s gone and the truth begins You can learn some things from the messages From the ones that came before you You can close your eyes while you’re listening You can hear the sky while the birds sing And you can lose yourself in your memories From the way it was before So I’m leaving, my station For a chance to be happy, because here I’m fading You can numb yourself when your hearts afraid And you can wear the pain like a masquerade And you can learn some things from the face you save Well I guess they’ll never know you And you can lose the taste for your own success Or you can smell the roses that compliment Or you can learn to trust in your own sixth sense Well I guess you’ve always known it So I’m leaving, my station For a chance to be happy, because here I’m fading Into the distance You can close your eyes while you’re listening You can hear the sky while the birds sing Or you can lose yourself in your memories From the way it was before So I’m leaving, my station For a chance to be happy, because here I’m fading Into the distance

Well I guess I was mistaken that you were someone that I wanted to know but you were just a stepping stone, but I let you make that decision and it’s the very thing that pissed me off, Cuz I want to be the one who’s in control And habits die hard otherwise; you’d be alone the rest of your life and find the bottom of this meaningless heart And I swear I’m not going to meet anyone and by the time I’ve been around the world I would have learned a little more, and then I feel this strange affinity that puts me back in love again like I’ve never been before And habits die hard otherwise; you’d be alone the rest of your life and find the bottom of this meaningless heart And someone else has taken your place and you have taken someone else’s and you are not the only one And someone else has taken my place and I have taken someone else’s and I have only just begun And in this world of dying roses there’s a fear to finally be alone until you learn to start again, and you believe your own deception and it haunts you with the things you’ve done cuz you may never love again And habits die hard otherwise; you’d be alone the rest of your life and find the bottom of this meaningless heart And someone else has taken your place and you have taken someone else’s and you are not the only one And someone else has taken my place and I have taken someone else’s and I have only just begun And higher and higher and now I see Looking down on everyone and me And all this soul and I learn to start again When all I want is to fill this emptiness

I can’t wait until now So long ago decided It’s deafening yet so loud One but still divided And if part of your soul knew the reason for this And if I was just like you As your spirit holds on to the things that you miss Would you still tell me what I should do And you’re forever alone to forever resist And the strangest things are true And some things you just know A lonely audience Waiting for this film to end Through this awkward silence The meaning’s surly spoken And if part of your soul knew the reason for this And if I was just like you As your spirit holds on to the things that you miss Would you still tell me what I should do And you’re forever alone to forever resist And the strangest things are true And some things you just know

There’s a person you will meet With a message from your past And this lesson you can keep That one day will be your last In this world of give and take You must never take too much And the time that seals your fate Is the time that brings you love And there’s a girl who’s bitter sweet In her tower made of stone And the hero’s fast asleep And you wish you might have known That the time it takes to laugh Is the time it takes to cry For the things you might have had For the ones who’ve said goodbye And If you listen hard enough You can hear the devil weep From the times that you’ve found love And the promises you keep In this world of give and talk You must never take too much And the time that seals your fate Is the time that brings you love

When you know it’s untrue but you won’t speak up When you’ve got one more chance but you just gave up When you hold back the fear and it’s warning you Would you believe a sign if it came to you Gotta be a man of faith Gotta be a man of love Gotta be a man that’s great You gotta be a man boy When you rattle your brain for a decent thought When you know you should change but your minds made up When you follow the rules of a chosen few Will you still go along when they turn on you Gotta be a man of faith Gotta be a man of love Gotta be a man that’s great You gotta be a man boy Gotta be a man of war Gotta be a man they’ll hate You gotta be a man boy Tell me what will you say when you finally know Try to push it away but you can’t let go Would you take it all back if you thought you could Would you still want a war when it’s your own blood? Gotta be a man of faith Gotta be a man of love Gotta be a man that’s great You gotta be a man boy Gotta be a man of war Gotta be a man they’ll hate You gotta be a man boy

There’s always a reason to go out now Everything’s new in the world somehow I have awoken a brand new man Into the world I begin again Hey mama can you hear me now All that you told me came true some how Love only dances to certain songs Your heart only knows when you’re right from wrong I know that your story was told too soon To become the rain and the sun and the moon Hey Mama And all your life by the ocean sun Where’s the time when you’ve just begun When all of my rainbows and fallen stars Have lead to this place where you are

Who am I to say That without your illusion the world is a better place That without your integrity politics never change In a perfect world there's no one Who am I to know That within your intention a desire you can't let go It’s the manipulation of everything we know In a perfect world there's no one And it's not my fault When there's always someone else to blame So why are our lives torn apart When all of our Gods are the same And your ignorance is blinded by arrogance From the lines you have drawn that have made you this way And you swear that your intention is blind to an agenda Though your ego wouldn’t have it any other way Are you justified, in this perfect world But it’s not your fault When there’s always someone else to blame So you lie but that’s not who you are And still all of our lives are the same Don’t you wish this life could change It's inevitable; we never will want to change And it’s all our fault And there is no one else here to blame And this world, that we have torn apart Is the world that we love just the same Is there no time left to change Some will say that time is like a wheel

“The word “hype” lives up to its definition so much; it’s nice when an
artist can too. To that end, there are the Broken Poets, or more specifically, singer/songwriter Tim McDonald. Largely unknown outside the Southwest, McDonald belongs to a select company of eloquent souls who can paint a mesmerizing picture out of the simplest words. Couple that with a striking, yet understated backing band, and you have a collective that, while not on the ears of a worldwide audience, awes the ones it does come in contact with.”
