Track Name: Opiate
Don't wet your lips, it won't cover your lisp
just bite your tongue
don't let it slip
there's enough of words
better left unheard

“Humility
is the crown of thorn we all must wear”

Mark my words
tougher mysteries have been solved
and better stories have been told

Cavity creeps always hide in your teeth
the rot works its way
like the things you say
until it reaches the pulp and then it's there to stay

“Humility
is the crown of thorn we all must wear”

Mark my words
tougher mysteries have been solved
and better stories have been told
Track Name: Blinded by His Eyes
Track my tears
Back to his grave
“There's something beyond the mountain”
But it seems ever so distant
so far away

A single look
is all it takes
you lose yourself in excuses
and you can never go back
to that place

Blind so blind
I lost my sight the day you said we would be fine
Fine always fine
Don’t wanna get by on what we’re offered

A single look
A single look
A single look is all it takes
A single look
and tears well up

Blind so blind
I lost my sight the day you said we would be fine
Fine always fine
Don’t wanna get by on what we’re offered

Blind so blind
I lost my sight the day you said we would be fine
Fine always fine
We'll get our knives and slash your tires
Track Name: Like Father, Like Son, and so On...
When you grew up
not that long ago
your teacher split your lip for talking
it was no place for learning

To institute shame
in distant sections of the populace
using language as a mean of control
the making of a nation

What’s in a name?

A school bell rings
in a northern town
a spectre haunts the hallways
this is no place for learning

A silken tongue
softens the blow
so you decide to keep quiet
this is no place for learning

What’s in a name?

The first time smoke filled your lungs
You were eight and full of hate

What’s in a name?
Track Name: You Sweat It Out
You sweat it out
in time alliances will fall
and no one
will be pardoned

You pull your weight
with crooked hands and aching back
and news
are never good now

Open ‘til two
let sorrow sing and marrow freeze
so we forget
our degradation

What unveils
may never be reversed again
it’s public
humiliation

The joke’s on us again and again
The joke’s on us again and again
Always on our part
always at our expense
Track Name: A Flash of Light
A flash of light in the dead of night
A flash of light and hope was lit
every life was made for this
couldn’t read what should be read
couldn’t hear what had been said
we share a common name, we have a chance

What no scale what no scale can measure
the relief we felt when we escaped from all the pressure

A flash of light in the dead of night
A flash of light and the tension was gone
some mumbled phrases as we hurried along
speed is of the essence here
can’t rest they’re always near
we chose our exit then we disappeared

What no scale what no scale can measure
the relief we felt when we escaped from all the pressure
Track Name: In Defence of Lost Causes
Brittle bones
break easily in winter time
and living isn’t easy
with a knife in your back

Let the child
speak its mind
In defense of lost causes

What was built
crumbles into ashes now
and labour stirs in its sleep
and objects to all past dreams

Let the child
speak its mind
In defense of lost causes

Any idea is better than the wasteland we’ve become
Track Name: Wolfman 2
