"Acts of Man" as written by Eric Pulido, Paul Alexander, Eric Nichelson, Tim Smith and Mckenzie Smith....
If all that grows starts to fade, starts to falter
Oh, let me inside, let me inside, not to wait
Let all that run through the fields through the quiet,
Go on with their, own with their own hidden ways

When all newness of gold travels far from
Where it had once been,
Born like the earth over years
And when the acts of man
'Cause the ground to break open
Oh, let me inside, let me inside, not to wait

Great are the sounds of all that live
And all that man can hold

If all that grows starts to fade, starts to falter
Oh, let me inside, let me inside, not to wait
Great are the sounds of all that live
And all that man can hold

Great are the sounds of all that live
That live

    General Commentthis is a song about wanting to return to something simpler. more specifically, yearning for simpler times, for less hustle and bustle.

    more subtly, it's about the dignity of man on his own. it's a reminder not to be afraid, and to be more easy-going and less worried about the future.

    General CommentYeah, I'm surprised there're not more comments. This song seems to be the one of the strongest tracks off this album. The Courage of Others Album release seemed come and go with only a few people noticing. What other tracks are highlights? Fortune and The Courage of Others are the other tracks I think are Memorable.

    General CommentMan, YOU didn't even comment (or at least interpret the lyrics:). It may be a strong track, but what the heck does it mean?!
