Track Name: Naked
Naked to the world like a fragile bird as it spreads its wings and chirps its first words.
Let the world forgive me for I have sinned,
But when the demons come I’ll let them in.

Just give me one second to breathe,
Just give me one second to think,
I’m hiding in a secluded place to breathe.

He was soon clothed and bathed as we is forced ready for a new wave,
As it sets closer – this creeping in closure.

Naked to the world like a fragile bird as it spreads its wings and chirps its first words.

His emotions grow stronger as his will sets weaker,
He’s hiding knee deep in a secluded place to breathe.
Track Name: Home Sweet Home
You’re just a blind bird that’s too afraid to sing,
take everything you own and leave your dignity,
Go and find love in a world where you plead
“I’m too late – but now I can see”.

Don’t tell me where you slept tonight.

So old man tell me are you cured tonight?
How a warm “welcome home” can change your life?
Is an empty life worth a paradise price?
Just keep running, running, running for a better life.
It’s a time ago now but I’ve lost some sleep,
From the screaming all night like we’re kissing your feet.
That home aint what I once called a safe place.

Let me bloom without your rays,
Cause the suns always down when you’ve found the place
Escaping the screaming - the threats for your life.
Track Name: Voices
These voices in my head. They tell me to run.

Locked in my head – these voices can’t escape.
A keyless lock holds them in. I’ve lost capacity to dream.
Nightmares settle in.

Life goes by day after day, existence blurs and fades away.
When life feels like I’m trapped in a cage – lock me in, throw me away.

Take my hand and look in my eyes – tell me what you see.
Take my hand and look in my eyes – tell me what you see.
Push it down – push aside your pride. Can you feel it destroying our hollow dreams?

Chained wrists, tied up – I’m imprisoned in cuffs.
My body’s locked up and I’ve had enough,
Im out of my mind – I feel I’m following blind,
When all you hear is fighting screams how do you know what’s right?
Track Name: Faceless
I am faceless – but I can open my eyes.
I can taste this – but I don’t desire.
It’s contagious – it’s my hearts disguise.
The world is blind it’s their ultimate prize.

The words are resting at the tip of your tongue,
You can see it, you can feel it, yet you live undone.
I’m persisting to open my eyes,
Yet I can taste all my hate like my world is on fire.

All of these signs showing me my blind eyes,
For all of the times I’ve committed my crimes.
Blindfold me – show me what I can be.
Show me the ropes – then test me.

I’ve created a labyrinth – but there’s light I can seek.
You listen to the voices but it’s not what I seek.
I’ve created a labyrinth.
Track Name: Stigma
Say it.
Say it to yourself.
Keep filling your head with thoughts of mindless thrills.
Welcome to a magic city where everyone fucks,
There’s no love, no trust, just teenage lust.

And now you’re shit outta luck,
your dreams are cut and your prides all you’ve got.
Do you think you’re tough?
Learn respect, save your breath and make it up to the women you fucked.

Do you feel better now that you got your dick sucked from a dumb drunk slut cause you’re too drunk to fuck?

And I hate to sing for this but I can’t wait and watch the blind world grow.
Track Name: Tell My Story
Unless I’m writing pages I’ll never express my way.
This is the only time I can say what I have to say.

I’ll write in my notebook, anything to clear my brain.
I just need this space and I’ve got myself to blame.
I don’t want to tell the world my story face to face,
That’s why I’m right here – cause I’m scared of every day.

Is it of myself? Or what the world has in store for me?
I’m so confused and I’m only just starting to think
Unless I’m writing pages I’ll never express my way.
This is the only time I can say what I have to say.

I have given up on this. You keep screaming the words and not fucking listening.
These words are meaningless when the mindless forget.

I’ll admit to myself I’m scared – but this is how I can face myself.
I’ll admit to the world I’m scared – but this is how I can face myself.
