Track Name: Lover Thine
He says I keep the faith in the only thing
It gives me grief it gives me pain
It’s heaven and hell in one
He believes the best has come and gone

He hides it in a special place
His lover his life mate
He says I do the best to keep you in my arms
My money you’re the only one

Down in the corner he sits on his hands
Laughs in glee and delight at his plans
To beg steal and borrow every penny that he can
Fuck his dear mother if it gained him a grand

He’s a well-respected man of means
With a touch of slime in between
His lips as words he weaves
This wide-eyed fool already believes

Down in the corner he sits on his hands
Laughs in glee does a happy little dance
Track Name: Hole Solution
Did you stop to think
Is it making you question
All of that you took for granted
All of those on whom you counted
Are you finally aware you shit head
It’s the wake-up call you needed
I see you’re finally moving on
I doubt you would be long

You need a hole in your head
I want to see it come oozing out
All your pride and your scheming
All your lies and deceiving
You need a hole in your head

You though I’d quit and run
My tail tucked neatly away
I guess you failed to notice
Unlike your other prey
I’ve got a head I like to use
I’m not dazzled by your ruse
You’d better head on south
Put a muzzle on that mouth
Track Name: Dragonfly
Between us
Screaming, pleading
Have mercy God
No relief this strain tried true now
I give up

Flutter as a dragonfly
Try and see through my eyes

Fly high there you go
How low can you go

Don’t you have an honest bone
Dragging down this stepping stone, I fall
Darkened little alleyway
Gutter slime this trying day, I call

Hear me as I tell you now
This is the way and this is how
I’ve tried

Fly high there you go
How low can you go

Between us strange caress
Sister brother I confess I never knew
Tried my hand in many things
Fade away now what remains I’ve been a fool

You were never good enough
Learned my lesson I can laugh honestly
Track Name: Wicked Days
Hey, come away
What see my eyes
Ill thoughts on my mind
These bitter days

We move undercover
As crowds deliver
The crown to the foul and the dumb

Day, come again
Pray save my son
From the trench and the gun
These wicked days

The masses are cradled and fed
They’ve long lost the use of their heads
We are fading fast
Our numbers are failing at last
So let’s kill a king once again

Speak, not again
Know you my heart
As we stand worlds apart
These troubled days
Track Name: The Body
This body belongs to me
To fuck to hurt to kill
And if I choose to give it all up
It’s my deal in the end
Do you understand

You think you have the right
Because you fucked me a couple of times
To tell me what to do
With this damned body of mine
You just don’t understand

You say you know it all
Trust or take the fall
And feed me all this shit about
What’s good for me and all
You just don’t understand

Get it
I said it
Heed it
This time I've got to get you off my back

This body belongs to me
To take it where I will
And if I choose to be unkind
Decision’s mine to make
Do you understand

This body belongs to me
To fuck to hurt to kill
And if I choose to give it all up
It’s my deal in the end
Do you understand

You think you have the right
Because you fucked me a couple of times
To tell me what to do
With this damned body of mine
You just don’t understand

You say you know it all
(I can see the colors changing)
Trust or take the fall
Paths beaten dead, you’d have me tread
Stained, I’ve already been bled

You say you know it all
(I can see the colors changing)
Trust or take the fall
And feed me all this shit about
What’s good for me and all
You just don’t understand
Track Name: Leah
Leah
Moving faster
Come out of the water
Race for the divider
Track Name: Sense of it All
Sometimes I feel
It’s hard to go on
Even to get out of bed
Search through my head
Focus my eyes
Can’t take another step

I don’t feel right
But say I am fine
If you should happen to ask
I don’t know why
My chest feels tight
Breath coming in ragged gasps

I’ve got to run
I don’t know where
Away from this troubled mess
Can’t take anymore
The simplest thing
Has me breaking into a sweat

I don’t like these
Shaking fits
My body’s about to drop
I cry and scream
And then complain
To make some sense of it all

I fall to the floor I crawl I seek I implore
(I know she'll come again)

I’ve traveled far
But the silent ones
Have caught up and come to call
Their quiet screams
And patience unbound
Demand I bare it all
(you know)
Track Name: Fell the Empty Mask
You’ve set the stage
For a revolution
Surrounded by those
Who share your persuasion

I know the likes of you
I’d know it any place
This mask of a holy man
That you wear to hide your face

Something inside
Is slipping by
This thing inside is slipping by

You say you’d protect me
But you have to change the rules
And I should just understand
Do you think me such a fool

I know your every move
I’ve caught on to your little game
Still I see you hanging on
Go hide your head in Shame

We’ll watch you fall
Track Name: Memory Game
In the beginning
There was only you
I’m trying to remember
Words still ringing true

Just like the last time
You sought to undermine
You sought control
And meant gains for you alone

But it’s another day
And you’re a different man
Seems my memory has stalled
Words mean nothing at all

So I say let it stay however it may
I don’t see reasonably how I could be
Here for another day
Track Name: Unrecognize
Some have stood still
Some have fallen down
Some are crawling by
Some have come and gone
Some have lost all memory
Some wish to forget
Some have changed their course
But I am still standing

Hidden from the crowds
Beneath these old sheets
Tearing us apart
Anytime we meet
Is this who I am
How have I become
A stranger to my eyes
Here standing
Track Name: Leave it Behind
I don’t want to talk at all
Leave this once for me
It’s not how I want it to be
You are not who you were
You say that you have healed
It’s not how I want it to be

We covered a lot of ground
Spent so many years
All that effort just to bring us here
We faltered on our words
Resisted all the signs
Do we just leave it all behind

How did it come to this
This bitterness so real
Another swallowed appeal
Now it’s time I end this game
My hands are tied with fear
My conscience not quite clear

We covered a lot of ground
Spent so many years
All that effort just to bring us here
We faltered on our words
Resisted all the signs
Do we just leave it all behind

Can you see the fire dying
Can you see this and end this denying
Time is just moving on making what it will of us
Some of us still carry on sift and scavenge through dust
