"The Secret" as written by Ryan Donald Zimmerman, Brandon Hackenson, Brian Champ, Dallas Smith and Joshua Applebach....
Autumn, laughing, cruelly stirred the ashes
brandishing black debris
Sickened us with memories gone rancid
under time's fallen leaves

This secret's
exposed us
for what we most despise
And we just can't
get back to
the lives we recognize
If there's no
forgiveness
for all we've compromised
then please just
look at me
and tell me that we'll try.

Winter, sighing, drew us into slavery
searching through empty rooms
Outside in the callous wind we're shaking
numbing our open wounds.

Sunrise, stumbling, forced us onto our feet
into another day
Cast light on the roots still lying beneath
laid bare for all to see

This secret's
exposed us
for what we most despise
And we just can't
get back to
the lives we recognize
If there's no
forgiveness
for all we've compromised
then please just
look at me
and tell me that we'll try

All these hurts, these lies
Please just let them die

All these hurts, these lies
Please just let them die
