about

Theatres in the Round Raleigh, North Carolina

Theatres in the Round was formed in January 2005. From there it was only a matter of months until their debut CD, "Why Should We Wait Any Longer?", was released. Soon after its release, Dennis did not hesitate to begin working on the follow-up. While "Why Should We Wait" focused on his softer side, Dennis really wanted to let out his harder edge. Less than 1 year later "Satiate" was released. ... more

Track Name: Distorted Memories
Instrumental
Track Name: Chasing Shadows
Verse 1
We sit down and we start to speak
Still I can’t help but feel so weak
You look at me and, I can tell
That your presence can dispel
All my troubles and, all my pain
All my rages are, made so tame

Pre-chorus
Sill I can’t help but think
Is there a leak, will we sink

Chorus
Chasing shadows all day, through the night
In the darkness with all our might
Chasing shadows is all we do
As long as I’m chasing after you

Verse 2
Over valleys and under lakes
Whichever way you will chose to take
I will always be close behind
Forever flowing, intertwined
Though elusive I still must say
You’re the hunter and I’m the prey
The path that you lead me down
You’re the treasure that I have found

Pre-chorus
There’s no doubt in my mind
What was once scattered is now aligned

Chorus:

Solo

Pre-chorus

Chorus (2x)
Track Name: The Big Question
Verse 1
Mystery, so long I’ve wondered will it be
Misery, alone I couldn’t see the end
Bitterly, I sat in jealousy until

Pre-Chorus
You set me Free
A perfect lock and a perfect key

Chorus
Now the question remains
Our intentions still under way
And who am I to place the blame

Verse 2
Irony, that you would see through me
Wearily, are all your words are just pretend
Finally, someone who understands

Pre-Chorus
Now I can Breathe
Your hand relieving my unease

Chorus
Now the question remains
Our intentions still under way
And who is left to take the reigns
Still the question remains
Honesty, neglect and pain
Will this end up, just the same
If this lasts, who’s to say
And who am I to place the blame
Track Name: Scars
Verse 1
On the road, of no return
On the road, with no way home
Holding tight, falling slow
Holding you, I know- I know

Verse 2
I look deep, inside myself
You will be, with someone else
I look back, I look away
You turn to me slow, I know

Chorus
But regrets are best left in the past
Buried from the light of day
Never spoken, never asked
Who remembers anyway

Verse 3
Those things don’t matter anymore
I have closed and locked that door
The ghosts that haunted though still close
They remain in tow- I know

Chorus

Solo

Chorus 2
Though regrets remain in our past
They are strong in their say
Moments caught in our minds cast
Reap rewards, forgo pay
Those things that our scars show- I know
Track Name: Believe in Us
Verse 1
I never knew how much, I was missing
Until the day you walked into my life
Now I see how, I was slipping
Now I see how I finally got it right

Chorus
Oh believe in us, I swear I’ll never leave
Oh believe in us, I swear I’ll never leave
‘Cos there’s no way out
‘Cos there’s no way out now

Verse 2
Months went by with, us believing
That we would never miss out on life
Months turned into weeks of skimping
Holding back that love that never knew denial

Chorus

Verse 3
I saw you leaving, out our front door
I saw you walk out, out for all time
Track Name: Would It Take Time
Verse 1
It’s been years, but maybe that’s just me
Waiting for you, hoping in belief
That you will feel the same
Your heart prepared and I can
See…
See…

Verse 2
A quiet word, a quiet stare
Across the world and I know you care
The way the light breaks on your face
The way your smile says I
See…
See…

Chorus
Would we know it from the start
Would it take time? Would it take time?
I have been waiting for you
Patiently, silently
On my knees…
Would it take time? Would it take time?

Chorus 2

Chorus
Would we know it from the start
Would it take time? Would it take time?
I have been waiting for you
Patiently, silently, earnestly
On my knees…
Would it take time? Would it take time?
Track Name: In Your Arms
Verse 1
Waiting never felt so long before
Just counting seconds until you walk back through my door
And when I see your smiling face
All of those seconds, no, not one of them feels a waste

Chorus
And in your arms I feel alive, I feel so free
And in your arms I feel alive, I can finally be me

Verse 2
Waiting never felt this long before
I thought I knew loneliness but I cannot ignore
The times that you are by my side
When you are close and I feel your heartbeat next to mine

Chorus 2
And in your arms I feel alive, I feel so free
And in your arms I feel alive, I feel so complete

Verse 3
Thinking down the line years from now
Looking back on a life with troubles and without
I will always look back and smile
Looking at a path that stretches on for miles and miles

Chorus 3
And in your arms the only place I feel alive
There I am content, there right by your side
Track Name: Before I Saw Your Face
Verse 1
I drove a thousand miles before
I ever saw your face
And I would do it again because
I know with you I’ve found my

Chorus
Place, and now I see
That you could be made for me
Though there are trials ahead
I hold tight to what has been said

Verse 2
You stood there all by yourself when I
Thought can you believe in me
Though time has kept us apart I don’t
Mind It brought us to this

Chorus

Verse 3
I saw you walk through that door
Now and forevermore there is a

Chorus 2:
Place, and now I see
That you could be made for me
Grace that together we
Have the strength to hold the key
Though there are trials ahead
I hold tight and follow where lead
Track Name: Marianne
Verse 1
A different time and place
Or maybe a year of grace
Would have a different taste
We’ll never know, in our minstrel show
I called and you ran
I reached for your hand
Oh my Marianne
Will you not see, not hear my plea
Ignore my song, not sing along

Chorus 1
Oh Marianne
Was this your master plan
To take this broken man
Break him all down, till nothing is found

Verse 2
Your long golden hair
Your beautiful green eyed stare
Your arms when bare
Are all that I need, nothing can supersede
The soft touch of your hand
Your toes curled in the sand
Why can’t you understand
Now that you've gone away, no words can allay
This pain that has grown, if only you’d known

Chorus 2
Oh Marianne
Was this your master plan
To take this broken man
Break him all down, till nothing is found
Oh Marianne
I know this cannot be
The feelings you had for me
Are on the wayside when you said good bye
Track Name: It's Nothing Personal (Take it or Leave it)
Instrumental
Track Name: Beauty in the Face of a Stranger
Verse 1
In time, you’ll see
No matter where you go you cannot run to flee
In time, you’ll know
Your face is the face I cannot overthrow
In time, you’ll be
Aware of all the good that you have given me

Chorus
And still I look up
Trying hard to understand what I don’t know
And a guide has shown up
In the face of strangers beauty that will grow

Verse 2
So blind, and weak
Left on my own I began to sink
So filled, with doubt
That time alone would never bring about
New life, new soul
A new trial meant to take its toll

Chorus 2
And still I look up
Trying hard to understand what I don’t know
And a guide has shown up
In the face of strangers beauty that will grow
Track Name: Distorted Memories (Reprise)
Verse 1
I know I’m not the kind of guy who
Tends to make large, sweeping gestures
But I hope that you won’t mind
Because I know I don’t have, all the answers
In a world with fears, disasters
Those who kill, those who hate
There is hope, a quiet shelter
Simply waiting for you to take


Verse 2
I know that you’re the kind of guy who
Tends to make large, sweeping gestures
Passion revealed, overflowing
No reserve, no restrain
You tried and tried, knocking on my door
But I refuse entrance inside
I tried to live in separation
With my distance, with my pride

Chorus

Verse 3
I have created a façade to block, hide
Whoever wish to come inside
A wall that tall, a moat that is wide
Afraid to cross the great divide

Chorus 2
Now I see, the end is coming
Now I hear the call
A figure grows in my mind’s eye
Come to crush this wall
Track Name: All Around Me (Jehovah Shalom)
Verse 1
All the secrets I held in deeply, held within me
Wouldn't let them go
All this time I never knew I could be, something bigger than me
Wouldn't let it show
I know that I could never own it, I had never known it
Never claim as mine

Verse 2
And to think that I never saw you, even though you
Were all around
The pain that I kept bottled tightly, made unsightly
Wrapped and bound
I know that I could never own it, I had never known it
Never claim as mine

Verse 3
You saw through all my weakness, spiritual regress
A theatre in the round
I know that I could never own it, I had never known it
Never claim as mine
Track Name: Brokeness in Me (Jehovah El-Roi)
Verse 1
In times of darkness, when times are hard
I look around, and see the stars
I see the moon lighting up the sky
All feelings leave me and even though I try
I can’t go back, I can’t go through
Fall to my knees and beg to you

Chorus
Lord I want to know how can you love me
Lord I want to see your will walked out in me
Lord I want to know how can you love me
Lord open my eyes, help me see
The brokenness in me

Verse 2:
I fall so often, I’m stained and marred
Sometimes I fight it, but make new scars
This world’s distractions all try to vie
For my attention and I give them eye
They bribe and yell try to pursue
But now I’m open to your coup

Chorus (2x)
Track Name: Kyrie (Jehovah El-Rachum)
Verse 1
I fell again, scraped my knees
Falling down and watch it bleed
When I cry out to see your face
Will you turn away, leave in haste

Verse 2
I don’t know why you see through me
I close my eyes and it’s everything
I don’t know how I thought I could
Folly and fault rage against what is good

Chorus
Kyrie (3x)

Verse 3
I fell again, surprising that
When I stood You took me back
In all truth I’ll fall again
I can’t fight, rather I can’t win
Your mercy heals, Your mercy saves
Your mercy redeems, Your mercy is grace

Chorus
Track Name: Days (Jehovah Gaal)
Verse 1
Days of waiting, days of trials abound
Have you been lost, silence echoing sound
Days of heartache, days of love never found
Where are you? Where have you gone?
Where are you? Am I not called upon?

Verse 2
Days of pressure, with truth marching on
Can I see you, can you be looked upon
Days of waiting, days of shades being drawn
Who are you? Are you a man or a pawn?
Who are you? Are you the great living one?

Verse 3
Days of conviction, where my guilt is my flaw
Days of conviction, where your judgment will fall
Days of conviction, with a sacrificial shawl
What are you? What is it you've done?
What are you? My propitiation!
Track Name: The Weight of Grace (Jehovah El-Olam)
Verse 1
Ever present, ever faithful
Ever watching, never alone

Chorus 1
Answered prayer and your will
Always to be done
Answered questions that I have never known

Verse 2
Always with me, in your Holy place
And now I carry the weight of your grace

Chorus 2
Answered prayer and your will
Always to be done
Answered questions that I have never known
You see the past, the future
See what I will be
See my flaws see my sins
The full weight you carried
You hold my hand through the storm
Assure that it’s ok
All that doubt that I had
Now washed away
Track Name: In My Hour of Darkness (Jehovah El-Chanun)
Verse 1
In my hour of darkness
I call your name
Listen for your voice
When I’m to blame
Fall and fail so often
Wonder if you hear
Sometimes it feels
Like pain I hold most dear

Chorus
We cry and beg for you
We cry and beg (4x)

Verse 2
You there are times
I walk away
Look to myself
Ignore what you say
At those times
I see the waves abound
Then I feel your hand
Your silent sound

Chorus

Verse 3
When stubborn heart
Finally yields
You still take me back
Renew your seal

Chorus (3x)
Track Name: Never the Same (Jehovah Rapha)
Verse 1
Hidden and eternal, pure and true
I call and you answer, you come through
I fall, hurt myself, cry out to you
You move heaven and earth, you pursue

Pre-chorus 1
No distance is too great, no shore is too far
No actions can abate who you are

Verse 2
And when I was lost, stranded in fog
Bleeding, broken, and alone, achen and throb
Unable to call for help, unable to see
I felt you lift me up, to my knees

Pre-chorus 2
And then I saw your face for the first time I could see
I felt safe in your arms when you said truly

Chorus
No more shall you worry, no more shall you fear
I can ease your hurt when you draw near
No more shall you labor under the weight of your pain
Tears dry, wounds will heal, you’ll never be the same
Track Name: Senses Fail (Jehovah Rohi)
Verse 1
Upside down and inside out
I’m gone all night and then you shout to me
I hide my face and hear your call
‘gan and ‘gan you stop it all to see
Good times come when bad times go
And I’m unsure of which this time will be

Chorus
How can I say what I don’t know, what is true
How can I hear what you’re calling me to do
How do I see past the fog of all I've been through
Senses fail and now I’m alone with you

Verse 2
Day by day I need your touch
I shoot myself I hold onto the key
The chains I've made they weigh me down
And in my mind I still believe I’m free
I taste the salt of bitter tears
And it’s enough to drive me to my knees
Track Name: Let It Burn (Jehovah Tsur)
Verse 1
When all I’ve tried in this life
Has gone up and died through all my strife
Don’t know how to hold on anymore
To a ledge that’s all gone

Verse 2
All I believe lets me down
And I can’t see ahead of me now
I hold onto the hope that I had found
walking with you

Verse 3
I cannot say what’s on my mind
or how to ignore what’s behind
know that I just leave it there
buried and past

Verse 4
Now I can see the path is unclear
And my feet may tremble with fear
As I fight for all that is dear
To be with you
To be with you

Chorus
Let them try and stop me
They won’t get very far
I know the strength that’s inside
Is all I need
Let them try and stop me
They won’t get very far
I know the strength inside me
Will carry on

Verse 6
I can feel fire burning surround me
Making me stronger than before
Watching the flames grow higher and higher
Just let it burn

Verse 7
Clearing away all my pain
Clearing away til I’m not the same
Clearing away all my shame
Stronger for you
Stronger for you

Chorus
So now they try to stop me
I’m willing to hold on
I know the fire that burns around me
Made me that strong
So now they try to stop me
They didn’t get very far
I know they’ll never get beside me
I’m holding on
I’m holding on
Track Name: Under Your Wing (Jehovah Ori)
Verse 1
When I close, when I close my eyes
All I hear is resounding cries
Enemies, gather round my tent
If not for you, they never would relent

Chorus
You are my shelter, my flame and shield
Against such power who should I fear
You are my sword, my bow and sling
Protected in Your wing

Verse 2
When You said, will you seek my face
I closed my eyes asking was it safe
In doubt, to my fear I turned
So great a love was never truly earned

Bridge
Enemies gather to do harm, turn me from my path
They never had the power of the One who holds me in His lap
Track Name: Greater Than Anything (Your Love) (Jehovah Shamma)
Verse 1
I should have known that you
Held my hand as I walked
Afraid of the night and you wouldn’t let me go
But still that doubt it creeped in
I don’t know where it came from
Still you loved me and never would, never let me go

Verse 2
On that day
When I was broken beaten and down
Still you say, that you were always there and around

Chorus
Your love is greater than anything I have ever known
Your love is wiser and now I see how long it has grown

Verse 3
Now I know that I never have to let you go
I don’t know where to begin, to praise you, don’t know how to show
Show all you’ve done for me
And I know that I never can repay, and you wouldn’t ask it of me
Wouldn’t ask it of me

Chorus
Track Name: Silhouettes (Jehovah Yeshua)
Verse 1
I stumbled onto the stage
No direction and no place to call my own
On the edge it appears
Over horizons of doubt I persevere

Verse 2
I rattle the doors of my cage
I look back at memories of faces that have shown
I scream aloud to the wind
Hung up on memories of places that I’ve been

Chorus
What do I know, what have I done
I cannot show what I have not begun

Verse 3
Have I destroyed or assuaged?
Have I spoke ill in unsympathetic tone?
My life is becoming innate
Piled under problems I can’t enumerate

Chorus
What do I know, what have I done
I’m all alone now, no battles have I won
And how can I hope to, the lead is in my feet
Can’t lift my face until I am complete
What piece is missing what object fills this hole
The dark silhouette places shadows in my soul
