Track Name: Better Days
When you get away.
Will you get your way?
Here now I’m gone.
Time whittled fine,
stab it in my spine

Making moments last
Through ancient graphs
On paper graves
You make me laugh
We had a blast
That won’t last

I see Better Days,
The truths in the myst now,
I heard you’ll stay
for better days.
I heard you say.
The futures a myth now
for better days.

When you get away,
will you get your way?
Here now you’re gone
Time whittled fine,
stab it in my eye
Track Name: Jerk With A Smirk (feat. Andy)
I know I’ve seen this man before
And he's looking through my door
And if I turn on the light
There was no one in sight
I know I’ve seen this face before
When I’m looking through my door
And if I turn the other way
It vanishes like the day

So lock your doors
It’s not safe anymore
There’s a Jerk With a Smirk
And he’s truly yours
Don’t you dread
He’s been fed
Many spines and heads
Theres a Jerk With a Smirk
And he’s in your bed

I know I’ve seen this place before
When I’m looking at the floor
And if i turn on the light
Oh, oh what a sight.
I know I’ve seen that face before
It was looking pale and pure
Another day, another dream
Another life, another scream

So lock your doors
It’s not safe anymore
There’s a Jerk With a Smirk
And well I’m, I’m truly yours
Don’t you dread
I've been fed
Many spines and heads
Theres a Jerk With a Smirk
And now I’m in your head
Track Name: All The Time
I knew a guy with a heart of gold
A simple man and a simple soul
Got shanked, got robbed
kicked in the head
Now he lays in a hospital bed

Bad things happen to
good people All The Time
I can’t tell you why,
that’s how things go by
Justice served, wouldn’t you say?

I knew a guy who shot a man
Face down in the sand
Got paid, got laid
Now he’s got a wife
and he leads a happy life

Good things happen to
bad people All The Time
I can’t tell you why,
that’s how things go by
Justice served, wouldn’t you say?
Track Name: Bitter Slow
Turn your eyes away from the sun.
The light it gives,
only gives help to some.
For those like you and me
theres the moon and the sea
For those like you and me
there’s time and eternity

Below these dark skies
reigns a bitter taste undone.
The stench of broken dreams,
and shattered wants of love
For those lost souls
sulking in those streets
For those lost souls
my demise is bittersweet.

And this now you shall know
In this life it can be Bitter Slow
Take a lesson and you’ll grow
In this life you can be quickly
unknown

Turn your face away from the crowd.
With their judging eyes
and their empty vows
For those like you and me
there’s the truth and belief
For those like you and me
there’s a life incomplete.
Track Name: High Tide
And all the time you spent there
waiting at home.
You could be here with me
so alone, but
it could be you, it could be me.
What can I say?
One thing that I know for sure
is you’re gonna pay.

I’ll be the one waiting here,
in High Tide
You’ll be the one hanging there,
hanging dry.
I’ll be the one waiting here,
in Hight Tide
It could be you, it could be me
but I can’t decide.

And if you find me somewhere,
waiting alone,
You could be here with me,
so unknown, but
it could be you, it could be me.
What can I say?
One thing that I know for sure
is you’re gonna pay.

Here inside the water
where you’re fine again.
In your way,
we’re the same again.
Track Name: Naked
They say chivalry is dead.
So I brought hime back to life
Then he found himself a wife,
but then she cheated on him twice.

They say clothes make the man
Well what man made your clothes?
And does he know all the woe
woven in those folds?

I’m Naked, and you’re achin’
I’m achin’, and you’re Naked
I’m Naked, and you’re achin’
I’m achin’, don’t get so sore
Track Name: Ms. Anything
Hello doctor, hello nurse
I feel it in my head, I think it’s a curse
It’s building up, it’s getting larger.
It’s in my head and it’s here again
I’ve come too far to end.

Is it a fever? Is it the chills?
I feel it in my head, I think I need a pill.
It’s building up, I’m coming down
The voices come and it’s here again
Don’t let them drag me down

Erase my mind
just this one time.
It won’t hurt one bit
A peace of mind, please be kind
I won’t miss a thing,
I won’t miss Ms. Anything.

Listen doctor to these words
I’ll do anything to break this curse.
It’s building up, you know I’m down
The voices come and they’re here again
Don’t let me go I’ll drown.
Track Name: Let It Go
Like the apple that cuts your mouth
So sweet, so deep.
The taste on your poison lips
reminds me to live.

So listen here, listen close.
Don’t say you will, ‘cause you won’t
When it all happens in a row
Let It Go

Over and over again it’s unchanged
the aim, was shame.
You got a look that kills,
why don’t you tempt me?
You know the drill

But when you let it go,
make sure you know what’s gone
‘Cause when you turn back
and you look once again
You’ll be so disappointed,
wishing that you had pointed
that finger, back at yourself
Track Name: Whistle Blower
Live your lovely life.
You got a hungry eye.
You’ll give it up,
You’ll eat it up
You’ll eat it up

He wove a tapestry of tragedy
Got a ticket down to hell
Whistle Blower Whistle Blower
In a cell.

Live your lovely life.
You got a hungry eye.
You’ll eat it up
You’ll eat it up
You read enough

You lead lovely life.
You got a hungry eye.
You’ll beat him up,
He bleeds enough
You’ll eat it up
Track Name: Ms. Ann Thrope
The words said it all,
I can’t stop our fall
but still I’m looking up.
I never look around,
'cause I don’t see the point
but show me
where you’re headed

You hate this life, I do too
That’s why I’ll say to you

I don’t trust anybody,
but I might for you.
Not just anybody,
in this life will do
I looked away, you did too
Ms. Ann Thrope,
I love you
even if you don’t.

The words said it all,
I can’t stop our fall
but still I’m looking up.
I never look around,
‘cause I found that I’m lost
but show me
where we’re headed.

You hate this life, I do too
That’s why I’ll say to you

She hates the world,
but that’s my girl x2
I got no chance
for sweet romance,
but that’s my girl.
Track Name: Medicine
It’s all deep inside
You got nothing to hide
We got a little time
Well no no no no no
Let’s go
I know
My dose x2

On again, on your medicine.
Hear again, all your sentences
I’m on again
Medicine
Track Name: Asteroid
Many miles away,
comes a rock headed our way.
And the sky, turns to dust.
And the water tastes like rust

Here comes the Asteroid
It’s come to fill your void
Better make it good,
better make it last
cause it’s coming
fast

In the shallow confidence,
lies the truth waiting immense.
And the sky turns to dust.
And the water just combusts
Track Name: Build A Burgh
Slave to a substance, employed to a toy.
Loyal to the royal, the end of all.
Leaders are not readers
They make a lot of noise.
The makers are the takers, the end of all

Joy
Now laugh it off.
Why don’t you laugh it off?
Have you had enough?

There’s a dye in our sky,
and a potion in our ocean
Words are so thin,
yet so often spoken.
There’s a gun for a guy,
and a bomb for a boy.
It’s the end of all, end of all

Slave to a substance, employed to a toy.
Loyal to the royal, the end of all.
Leaders are not readers
They make a lot of noise.
I swear the makers are the takers, the end of all

Joy
Why don’t you have enough?
Why don’t you have enough?
"I think you’ve had enough"
