Track Name: Slay The Hunter
She’s melting in your arms tonight
You’ve come oh so far just to be where you are
So hold her close with all your strength
You’ve said it all tonight

Please trust more than me
It’s just too much weight to bear
Find your peace in God above tonight
And rid yourself of all your fears
Don’t think that I’ll just disappear

Slay the hunter in your heart’s heart
Track Name: Winter
Winter is better
Winter’s so much warmer when I’m with you
I don’t even notice
I don’t even care if we’ve been spoonin’

This vision went further
This vision lasted longer ‘cause we fought for it

if you trust in Me
I will honor you
but we’re not even supposed to be here

Son, here is my daughter
daughter here’s my son, so don’t be stupid
you’ve grown to hate each other
but once you hated Me, and we’ve recovered
but Father, we’ve broken
Father, we’ve been battered by the tempest
Track Name: The Answer
Once you found her
Did it not destroy you?
The thought you let through
Did it not at least free you?

So look beyond it
See who walks alongside
It’s Thee who made them
Gave His life so you can love her right

They came in droves and cluttered your mind
And told you, “here is what you’ll find
An answer, she’s the answer.”
But you placed her where she never belonged
As a slave to right out all your wrongs
The answer
Is she the answer?

What made you callous bid so well with your desires
So you embraced her
But you turned away when she loved you back
Track Name: She Hates You
Do you see her there with a smile in place?
Forever it should stay
But it seems like wine by the fireplace
Might just have to wait

Sooner or later You’re gonna have to tell her
You are the shelter, we’re entertainment
If You could allow it, then You could take it back
She loves You, and she hates You at the same

Try to love her and you know you can
You think you know yourself
But unless you die to your selfish man
It’s back where you began

So you set yourself a reason
For no conclusion or closion
But don’t be so sure that
You’ll never deny what means the most
If you were to lose it all
