Track Name: The things we dare not tell
Words: Henry Lawson (1867-1922)

The fields are fair in autumn yet,
and the sun's still shining there,
But we bow our heads and we brood and fret,
'cause of the masks we wear;
Or we nod and smile the social while,
and we say we're doing well,
But we break our hearts, oh, we break our hearts
for the things we must not tell.

There's the old love wronged ere the new was won,
there's the light of long ago;
There's the cruel lie that we suffer for,
and the public must not know.
So we go through life with a ghastly mask,
and we're doing fairly well,
While they break our hearts, oh, they kill our hearts
do the things we must not tell.

We see but pride in a selfish breast,
while a heart is breaking there;
Oh, the world would be such a kindly world
if all men's hearts lay bare!
We live and share the living lie,
we are doing very well,
While they eat our hearts as the years go by,
do the things we dare not tell.

We bow us down to a dusty shrine,
or a temple in the East,
Or we stand and drink to the world-old creed,
with the coffins at the feast;
We fight it down, and we live it down,
or we bear it bravely well,
But the best men die of a broken heart
for the things they cannot tell.
Track Name: Consume
All of my pride
I build up inside
All that I won't let go
All of my pain
And scars that remain
When never enough tears can flow

The walls I construct
The doors that I shut
All that I try to hide
The burdens that crush
It all gets too much
The sin that erodes my inside

Chorus 1:
You take it all away
You take it all away
You take it all away
You take it all

The deceit of my heart
That breaks me apart
The thoughts of my mind conspire
But greater is Him
Than the sin that’s within
My God is a consuming fire

Chorus 2:
You burn it all away
You burn it all away
You burn it all away
You burn it all
