Track Name: Standing on the Edge
Waiting for the dawn to break
Waiting for the sun
Standing on the water's edge
With his only son

Don't know which is worse
Whether to stay or if to go
Leaving behind the only life that they know


(They're) standing on the edge
Eyes staring outwards
Standing on the edge
No turning back

Fear and dread and heartache
Of what's ahead and what's behind
Knowing what's behind them
Not knowing what they'll find

Bullet holes and lost souls
The cold and wild sea
Clinging on to the last hope
To live with dignity

Track Name: We're Going Down
The sound of distant thunder
Staring out in wonder
The howling of the wind
I think we're going under

We're going down

The waves are getting stronger
We can't hold on much longer
The pounding of the wind
There's no time to ponder

We're going down

Only together
Can we keep the water out
No one alone
Can keep the water out

Were going down

Everyone together
To keep the water out
Leave your throne
or We're all going down

We're going down
Track Name: The Otherside (Standing on the Edge Part II)
Waiting for the sunrise
Waiting for the sun
Standing on the shoreline
With his only son


My lifes not over yet
That I'm feeling this way
I will never forget
Until my dying day

Tears of joy he's weeping
So happy to be alive
Can't believe he's made it
To the other side

Feeling of elation,
Has changed to feeling numb
Knowing that his journey
Has only just begun
