Daylight To Break

I've seen the darkest things
Crawling inside of me
I've seen the monsters come alive

I've seen the enemy
The nightmare follows me
Searching the darkness for a light

Waiting for daylight to break up this room
Waiting for daylight to break
I've been alone, in the dark I've been dreaming
And waking up without you, I've been waking up without you
For too long

Back in the tragedy
I've made a mess of me
My bitter means, my bitter ends

I see the irony
It gets the best of me
Dying to be made new again
Again

Waiting for daylight to break up this room
Waiting for daylight to break
I've been alone, in the dark I've been dreaming
The day, when dreamers are awake

The sun hits my eyes and everything is right
I've been waking up without you,
I've been waking up without you...

I've been warring alarms
'Til you are in my arms
I've been waking up without you,
I've been waking up without you
For too long

Waiting for daylight to break up the room
Waiting, waiting
I've been alone, in the dark I've been dreaming
The day, when dreamers are awake

The sun hits my eyes and everything is right
I've been waking up without you,
I've been waking up without you...

I've been warring alarms
'Til you are in my arms
I've been waking up without you,
I've been waking up without you
For too long

C'mon C'mon

You've been living life like it's a sequel
And your already bored with the plot
As if the cast and the score
Are more money than before
But the script and the backdrops are stock

We've got the rest of our lives to regret
All the words that were said here tonight
But I bet that the morning, in the morning
Will find us in bloom

So C'mon C'mon C'mon
Let's not be our parents
Oh C'mon C'mon C'mon
Let's follow this through
Oh C'mon C'mon C'mon
Everything's waiting

We will rise with the wings of the dawn
When everything's new
When everything's new

Ever size up with summer sun?
Let these songs awaken the dawn
Let us breathe every breath
Like a gift to be kept
Let us breathe it all in 'til it's gone

We've got the rest of our lives to live out
All these dreams we stay up tonight talking about
In the morning, to start hoping, would not be too soon

So C'mon C'mon C'mon
Let's abandon this darkness
Oh C'mon C'mon C'mon
Let's follow this through
Yeah so C'mon C'mon C'mon
Everything's waiting

We'll be lit up like fire and gold
When everything's new
When everything's new

When everything's new
When everything's new


Connect With The Spine

Take her like a photograph, like any autograph
She'll find a way to go down,
Watch her like a movie screen, like any drama queen
She'll find a way to go down

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Play it like a cameo, and watch her overflow
She'll find a way to go down
Run like a candidate, like any minute made
You'll find a way to go down

I'm sick of the faces, the scene and the light
We'll be fine when the faces connect with the spine

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah



Out Of Control

From The Album: Hawaii Five-O: Original Songs From The Television Series
Out Of Control

Written by Jonathan M. Foreman

You were the sure thing
You were my diamond ring
I was your surgery
Your emergency

I was your outlaw
I was your fatal flaw
You were my iodine
I was your valentine

I'm not sure why you're here tonight,
Feels like you're looking for a fight
Today a lifetime has passed before my eyes

I thought I knew you
What have we come to
What came of you and me
And the distance in between
You were the one who always opened up my soul
Now here we go out of control

Well we can overthrow the world that we all knew
Wasn't I the rock upon which you were building something new
I felt like royalty
Do you question loyalty?
'Till I deny that I had ever known your authority

How could a kiss become a fight?
How could the darkness kill the light?
How could everything I trusted in be crucified

I thought I knew you
What have we come to
What came of you and me
And the distance in between
You were the one who always opened up my soul
Now here we go out of control

And I still don't understand
Any part of your dying plan
You were so hell-bent
To get to hell and back again

I thought I knew you
What have we come to
Caught in the in between
Stuck in the darkest dream
You were the one who always opened up my soul
Now here we go out of control

Out of control
Out of control
(x4)

We Are Bound

A slip of a tongue and fist
A slight of a hand like this
Touch of the fingertips
Goes through the note we skipped

(Chorus)
We are bound
We are falling through you
We are bound
We are falling through

A moment of bitter bliss
Licking your Judas lips
Throwing a timeless fit
With tongues of a fire we lit

(Chorus)

We follow sons amiss
The sons of the counterfeits
The devil has called me from inside

We are bound
We are falling through

Counterfeit sons, counterfeit sons, counterfeit sons...

Stitches

I'm not the only one who sees them
I'm not the only one they keep up at night
I'm not the only one not sleeping
I'm not the only one who's dreaming out loud
Dreaming out

(Chorus)
In stitches here tonight
We are ripping the seams out
I'm pushing hard to tear it loose
In stitches here tonight
We are ripping the seams
There's something missing
Children of the in between

Overthrow

All our pretty roads, fairy tales and crowns
Broken on the floor
All our little words, love and peace and love
Spoken with a sword
We say overthrow the government
Put a new one up instead

If you can overthrow, then overthrow,
If you can overthrow your soul
If you can overthrow, then overthrow,
If you can overthrow your soul

Tell me how it goes, the one about the war
The war that killed the king
Our hearts are still the same
Stone and ice and steal
Lifeless hollow things
You say overthrow the government
Who will save us from yourself?

If you can overthrow, then overthrow,
If you can overthrow your soul
If you can overthrow, then overthrow,
If you can overthrow yourself, yourself, yourself

Take me down and lock me up,
You can't change my head,
You can't change my heart

When this old life is done,
Will we still be the stubborn souls we always were?
Today is our last chance to turn around
To turn around
Yourself, yourself, yourself

If you can overthrow, then overthrow,
If you can overthrow your soul
If you can overthrow, then overthrow,
If you can overthrow your soul


Dirty Second Hands (EHFWS Edition)

Written by Jonathan Foreman and Todd Cooper © 2006

Please don't be so naive
You know you're not fooling anyone
You're not as tough as you think
With the dirty second hands,
The dirty second hands

Can't get nothing for free
It becomes so predictable
You start fighting to breathe
The dirty second hands,
The dirty second hands

(Chorus)
Here's the face of everything that breaks you down
Now you face the face of everything that breaks you down

With an army of me
We invent our own enemies
Man verses machine
And the dirty second hands
The dirty second hands

In the land of the free
And the home of the remedy
The old clock is a thief
With dirty second hands
With dirty second hands

(Chorus)

Now you face the face of everything that breaks you down


This Is Home

Written by Jon Foreman, Andy Dodd, and Adam Watts

I've got my memories
Always inside of me
But I can't go back
Back to how it was

I believe You now
I've come too far
No, I can't go back
Back to how it was

Created for a place I've never known

(Chorus)
This is home
Now I'm finally where I belong
Where I belong
Yeah, this is home
I've been searching for a place of my own
Now I've found it
Maybe this is home
Yeah, this is home

Belief over misery
I've seen the enemy
And I won't go back
Back to how it was

And I got my heart set on what happens next
I got my eyes wide
It's not over yet
We are miracles
And we're not alone

(Chorus)

And now, after all my searching
After all my questions
I'm going to call it home

I got a brand new mindset
I can finally see the sunset
I'm going to call it home

(Chorus)

Now I know
Yeah, this is home

I've come too far
And I won't go back
Yeah, this is home


The Sound In My Mouth

I am the crook who robs me
I am my own adversary
I am my enemy
I am my enemy
And my mouth is an army

And when the night falls on me
I become anything but free
I get so sick of this
It gets ridiculous
My mouth says an army

(Chorus)
The sound in my mouth
It gets so loud
It gets so loud
Little words can slip out
Words like sorry
And I'm so sorry
Yeah

I am the tyrant of discourse
I am the beater of the dead horse
I am the irritant
I am the irritant
And my mouth is a brute force

Here we are in another night
Gearin' up for a social accident
When we pick part, I pick sides, I pick fights
My mouth is an army

(Chorus)

Where will you find yourself
Without love?
Give love to someone else
Is that enough?
If love is to find yourself
Are you finding love?
Or are you picking sides?

The sound in my mouth
It gets so loud (x7)

(Chorus)


Spirit

Written by Jonathan Foreman
© 1999 Meadowgreen Music Company / Sugar Peter Songs / ASCAP / Admin. By EMI Christian Music Publishing

I've been thinking a lot about renewal. I guess I'm more aware than ever of my need for a fresh outpouring of God's Spirit. The best times in my life seem to be those seasons when I'm thirsting for a real encounter with the living God.

"Spirit" was born out of that kind of deep thirsting. It expresses my longing for God and for a truer God-centeredness in my own life. I want to be obedient, but I know that obedience isn't even possible apart from God's Spirit. I want to seek God, to wait for Him, and to place myself right underneath the waterfall of what He's doing around me. If revival is knowing God on a deeper level, then revival is what I want.

As you listen to "Spirit" you might recognize the melodic refrain from the old hymn that says, "Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me." It was that hymn that inspired this song, and I wanted to weave it in somehow. The music itself I tried to keep pure and uncluttered so that it could create a peaceful stillness from which a heart could call out to God.

- Jonathan Foreman, Switchfoot


Spirit, fall fresh on me
Spirit, fall fresh on me
Hear my cry, fill my life
I won't need anything but You

I found all that I want, all that I long for in You (x2)

Wasted time, is when I'm far from Your truth
I've found all that I want, all that I long for in You

Spirit, come be my joy
Spirit, come be my joy
Be my song, fill my lungs
I wont need anything but You

I found all that I want, all that I long for in You (x2)

Wasted time, is when I'm far from Your truth
I've found all that I want, all that I long for in You

I've found all that I want, all that I long for in You (x2)

Wasted time is when I'm far from Your truth

I've found all that I want, and all that I long for in You
All that I want, all that I long for in You
Yeah, I've found all that I want, all that I long for in You (2x)
I've found all that I want, all that I long for is You
Yes, You're all that I want, all that I long for is You

Evergreen

Written by Jonathan Foreman

Me and the trees, losing our leaves
Falling like blood on the ground
I want to be evergreen

Everything dies, I know last night
Part of me wasn't around
I want to be evergreen
Yeah, evergreen...

Waiting, and listening
Hoping and missing all of our time left alone
I'm the one cutting the rope

Frostbite in winter, cuts like a splinter
You come and follow me down
I'm the one cutting the rope
Yeah...

(Chorus)
Holiday end, I'm here once again
And I'm left alone on the bus with my
Head on the ground
In hopes that I'm found by you this time around

The sun will rise soon and tackle the moon
Chasing it still in the sky
All that I've got is tonight

Excuses and reasons
And now 'tis the season
For all that I never got right
All that I've got is tonight
Yeah...

(Chorus)

Night is a crow, saying come hold me
All that I know is I've been so lonely for thee

All that I knew, and all that I'll know
Found itself under your rain
I want to be evergreen
I want to be evergreen!

(Chorus)

I want to be evergreen, I want to live all year round

Oh! Gravity (acoustic)

Written by Jonathan Foreman and Tim Foreman © 2006

There's a fracture in the color bar
In the backseat of a parked car
By the liquor store where the streetlight
Keep you company 'til the next night

In the same town, there's the same scar
In the same glow of the liquor store
By the freeway, where the headlight
Keep her company 'til the next night

Oh! Gravity.
Why can't we seem to keep it together?
Sons of my enemies,
Why can't we seem to keep it together?

In the back room of the Pentagon
There's a thin man with a line drawn
With a red jaw and a red bite
Watch the headline on the next night

Oh! Gravity.
Why can't we seem to keep it together?
Sons of my enemies,
Why can't we seem to pull it together?

Why this tragedy?
Why can't we seem to keep it together?
Oh gravity, why can't we seem to keep it together now?

In the fallout, the fallout
We found out the hype won't get you through
We're connected, connected
I meant it, the hype won't get you through
Through

Oh! Gravity.
Why can't we seem to keep it together?
Sons of my enemies,
Why can't we seem to pull it together?

Why this tragedy?
Why can't we seem to pull it together?
Oh gravity, why can't we seem to keep it together now?

La la la la la la la la la
Let's pull it together
