Road To Zion 03:47
Road to Zion by Ezra Vancil Like a church you’re a maze dark halls draw lines on your face You’re a child in a race with your future fallen grace Ya You're blind but you see the man you'll never be Just a clown, try in vain, to where your paint in the rain So just go your way we don't want this kinda faith That’s ok if you shine, burnin down the road to zion Draw a crowd on a street so they magnify your weeping Crown - it’s a pound, of your hate you love to - venerate Your mind like a phone calling god’s holy angels home It’s a loss to be found when you think your glory bound So just go your way we don't want this kinda faith That’s ok if you shine, burnin down the road to zion And it’s love and its grace not a war of hate politic debate So just go your way we don't want this kinda faith That’s ok if you shine, burnin down the road to zion So just go your way we don't want this kinda faith That’s ok if you shine, burnin down the road to zion

Patience 04:07
Patience by Ezra Vancil Patience like a wave in the ocean where’d it come with a notion the shore would be the end Patience like a father's devotion and a motherly potion now we’re starting to began Patience god colored a rainbow we can practice in slow mo while we learn to love again Patience loving you is like plants grow vines tangled the leaf show when we’re starting to begin And when the morning comes there’s the sun rise Just for our eyes You and I and when the night is full there’s the blue skies moon light your eyes you and i Patience like a wave in the ocean where’d it come with a notion the shore would be the end Patience god colored a rainbow we can practice in slow mo while we learn to love again And when the morning comes there’s the sun rise Just for our eyes You and I and when the night is full there’s the blue skies moon light your eyes you and i

Paper Sky 04:08
Paper Sky by Ezra Vancil Paper sky plastic moon built my world and nothing true except regret even rain ain’t wet years will change, poverty, fame but rescue me love when it all looks the same to you calling angels across invisible telephone line Pushing tables Like i'm a ghost that I want you to find And shine your love glitter stars, Styrofoam toy cars we’re driving home with open doors see the sawdust shores all that shines is cold and dark rescue me love with your beating heart I’m through calling angels across invisible telephone line Pushing tables Like i’m a ghost that I want you to find And shine your love Paper sky, Plastic moon Built a world I thought would keep you close to me But you lost the key Life is long tell me I’m wrong but rescue me love before I am gone see me

Valentines Day Song by Ezra Vancil Well Everybody got a little box that they hold a diamond in the rough in the corner folded, underneath the valentine that remains for a girl or a guy that never found that holiday now it seems so far away and you’ll never find a place for traces of that kind of love cause it’s buried deep beneath the years of blood and gold and searching for the truth just to find it sold to a taller man and a bombshell girl who is thin and cheap with natural curls and I want that holiday and I promise I’ll be brave walk to the box with roses painted in the snow fold it up and let it go everybody got a little shrug in the shoulder thinking of a love that left them cold or wandering the street steeping a beat of a heart oh it makes you feel so grey and I want that holiday when lovers celebrate snow on an open road and chocolates sold and making love now it’s buried deep beneath the hopes of broken souls and meeting in the truth that love grows cold for a waters deep in a man’s deceit and a women's hum drum mystery and I want that holiday and I’ll promise I’ll be brave draw me a picture of our hotten fall in a row fold it up and let it go and I want that holiday and I’ll promise I’ll be brave walk to the box with the roses painted in the snow fold it up and let it go signed your valentine to my love divine and I want that holiday and I’ll promise I’ll be brave walk to the box with the roses painted in the snow fold it up and let it go and I want that holiday and I feel so far away draw me a picture of our hotten fall in a row

Halli Says 03:44
Halli Says by Ezra Vancil Halli says were gonna shine like the sun in bloom before it’s decline But I say what about this hunger in me and what about these feelings and what about these troubles I’ve built in my mind But Halli says it’s all in time All the dreams float off just so we may climb But I say what about my failings and what about this emptiness what about this spirit I no longer find But halli says that I’ve been found that she could picture me before the world was round but I say what i just ruin it all and what If I just build us a wall and what if this man’s history and future is bound And fear just let me go some things no one should know dark places we hide songs sung alone in the night But Halli says she’s gonna try to travel farther than the answer to why and I say, maybe I’m no good for you and maybe you’ll be through with me and maybe all loves poetry was written with wine But halli says we’re gonna shine.
