about

This album is about a man who can't give up. He holds on to things that are close to him, even when things get rough. The story begins when God asks him what he would do if he had two weeks left to live. While at first he brushes this off, he soon believes that it might be real. He decides to make some life changes. However, throughout time, he grows cold. His heart gets hardened, and he wonders why he should open up to new people. This comes with a price, when he loses someone close, and his hard heart fails to cry. He questions his choices, and wonders what is wrong. He questions God, and God only says to trust. He accepts and lets God soften his broken heart. Time passes, and God asks him what he would do if he lost someone else. He barters with God while accepting whatever comes. He is reminded to what God told him after he lost the first one. The man remembers what people told him as a child. People said he would make a great salesman. The man decides that no matter what happens, God knows best.

Track Name: You Know Best
I know that you know best
I know that you know better than I do
But all I ask for
is one day more
Track Name: Two Weeks Notice
When did this all begin?
It is vivid in my mind x2

You gave me two weeks
and I tried to make the most of it
you gave me two weeks
and you gave me a shove in the right direction
You have given me
Two weeks notice
You have given me
Time

You pulled the ground out from under me
There was no one to turn to x2

You have given me a chance to do
All that I have not

You gave a warning sign
You punched me in the gut
You gave me a wakeup call
You softened
My heart
Of stone
Track Name: Gut Punch
Why Didn't I Listen The First TIme?
Track Name: I Ask Why
You shattered my life
My knowledge
My everything

All my words
Have turned to shit
You showed me a horrid sight

Something that
I can't un-see
You showed me a horrid sight
And all you say is
"Trust me"

I lay on my back
I stare upwards to the sky
I ask you why
I ask you why

I lay on my back
While trying hard to cry
I ask you why
I ask you why
And all you say is
"Trust me"
Track Name: You Broke My Heart Of Stone
You broke my heart of stone
Track Name: Barter When You Have Nothing To Give But Yourself
Don't take him
Take me
Don't take me now
Take me tomorrow

I asked you for one day
and I'll ask for another
another another another

I won't stop asking
I'll be asking when you say no
And when that day comes
I’ll keep asking, I think you know

Don't take him
Take me
Track Name: What Was It?
Was it all a test?
Was it all to see what I would do?
Was it a wakeup call?
Now I hear you loud and clear
Track Name: The Salesman
I am the salesman
I take it step by step by step
time after time after time after time
Pushing it the deal further

I ask you for one thing
And then for another
time after time after time after time
asking for more

I am the salesman
I ask you for one thing more
That you give me
just one day more

I'll ask you for a day more
And I'll do the same tomorrow
I ask you for to stay your hand a day
and I'll do the same tomorrow

I am the salesman
I'll be content for today
I won't fear what tomorrow brings
Track Name: I Know, You Know
I know that you know best
I know that you know better than I do
But all I ask for
is one day

I am the salesman
I pitch the products
I say the words

I am the salesman
I know the ins and the outs

I am the salesman
So now I ask you
Consider this
