"Tranquil" as written by Paul Burnette, John Henry, Kristopher Norris, Ryan Parrish and Michael Schleibaum....
this decaying flesh is coming back to
life reanimate me give me a chance and
i'll be right here when the sun hits the
sea watching these waves wash the pain
away and it will radiate so brilliantly that
we can keep pushing on and get on with
life cause we deserve it now i know that
the worst part is behind us now onward
and upward we take flight on bruised
and battered wings we soar above our
clouded thoughts never looking back
we can regain a sense of balance that's
been gone so long give me a chance to
reason with the odds to pick myself
back up again regain a balance gone so long

    General CommentThis song-the entire album-is a total work of art. Basically, it's like John Henry says, this album is about making life worth living, and deals with all these different emotions in the process. Tranquil is just bringing it to a close, the rebirth...it's stated in the first line 'this decaying flesh is coming back to life,' who he was has died, and he is now a new person.

    The long instrumental outro of the the song is absolutely brilliant, as is the entire song itself. I love that the song brings the album to a close perfectly, and how it fades out in the same manner that "With a Thousand Words to Say But One" faded in.
    The entire album is structured perfectly, and there's so much emotion (without being whiny cut-your-wrists sort of thing) that it's like someone punched you in the chest at some points throughout this album. The emotion in some of the songs hits me so hard it's not even fair.
    Favorite album of all time, I'm not kidding.
    I love John Henry
    (I can say that totally guilt free and honestly, because my boyfriend has the same name :D)

    General CommentThis song is about a turning point in the singer's life where he all of the sudden starts living totally different. All the bad things are behind him and he's finally happy. "These fevered times" and "paradise" lead up to this point. in " Tranquil" he has finally reached the point in his life where he can start living and stop going through all the pain that is elaborated on in the rest of the album. Sickkkk song, sick album.
