Track Name: Recoil
RECOIL

Here we go
I evoke another night for absorbing the blow
Separating me from the temporal lobe
And I float
Leave my body to run the show
Watch it curtsey in vein
Endure and entertain
Without confronting the shame

All my life I’ve sensed the grave
As time beats away
My distractions enterprise
And leave me none the wise

Recall the call to fade
You wanted to censor it all
Mind consenting to recoil
So if I ever look back and reminisce, it won’t seem as sad
But the clock is slow
The same now as ten years ago

All my life I’ve sensed the grave
As time beats away
Never really here and now
And I’ll stand by, knowing full well
That my actions are all futile, all while—
My distractions enterprise
And leave me none the wise

But the clock is slow
The same now as ten years ago

All my life I’ve sensed the grave
As time beats away
Never really here and now
Every night I force the state
But it’s never quite enough
Observe it separately above
And I’ll stand by, knowing full well
That my actions are all futile, all while—
My distractions enterprise
And leave me none the wise

And leave me none the…
Track Name: Alpha
ALPHA

Piece by piece
I sell off bits of my patience, anxiously
the consequently expressed-unspent
will find it hard to keep censored
the depraved and bitter veil
Distressed at best

Lessons learning,
When promises are interpreted as fact
And all of these so-called favours inflames the
Antagonistical flavours I don’t dare to counteract.
No worth
Then you say

When I see you out in the spotlight
You embody elation
‘cause honey, you’re the rare find
The rare find
In your element
In your element

Finally, an exciting
Reminder of a younger unburdened soul
But overwhelming exhaustion, it cautions
Wouldn’t it be so easy just to fold, and let this go?
No worth
Then you say

When I see you out in the spotlight
You embody elation
‘cause honey, you’re the rare find
The rare find
In your element
When I see you out in the spotlight
You embody elation
‘cause honey, you’re the—
Honey, you’re the rare find

Ohhh ohh ohh
Ohhh ohh ohh

You'd never dream to compromise
Living life romanticised
Only you could quantify
Just how it feels reaching those highs
Oh what I wouldn't give to live like..
Oh what I wouldn’t give to be you

No worth / Till you say / No worth
Track Name: Tied Around
TIED AROUND

A sleepless night
Cycling inside a REM-less spire
Keeping various suppressions
Somewhat organised

The compression of life
Weight suppresses sight
Suddenly you’re so overwhelmed
Yet you’ll solo on
Just like you’ve always done

Well I relayed the information in play
Although the outcome was vague
I still engaged a confident game
To fail all the same

Sit back, admire
The hypocritically catalysed fire
You were doomed to ignite
The moment your wills applied

Well the warning was bright
You’ll be crucified from either side
Despite my intention good or otherwise
It’s all a waste of time

Well I relayed the information in play
Although the outcome was vague
I still engaged a confident game
On I'd fight, if not for this tight tug of war rope
Tied around my throat

We live in retrogressive views
Forces of nature in forms of the uninformed enforcers
I never meant to falter you
Left to your own devices I know you’d see it though
In your own way.

I relayed information in play
Although the outcome was vague
I still engaged a confident game
I would fight, if not for this tight tug of war rope
Tied around my throat
Track Name: Point Of Doubt
POINT OF DOUBT

I tossed about the point of doubt foretold
And got sold
Told the older model to relinquish all control
And uphold

‘cause there’s nothing really sadder than a man who’s past his prime
All according to this paper counting time

That’s all I’ve come to know
To religiously adopt their old cliche
And impose their predetermined resume

Reminisce the lectures from the old
A lesser mould
Never did you lobby to embody what they told you to want

‘cause there’s nothing more pathetic than a man who can’t let go
As if beauty lines are worth more than the soul

That’s all I’ve come to know
To religiously adopt their old cliche
And impose their predetermined resume

Well I’m sure that there’s more
I’m sure
Well I’m sure that there’s more
I’m sure

When I see you I’m all for the cause
You gotta try
But when you say in order to comply
We must hide within the whitest of all lies

Well there’s got to be a little more
Than precisely reimprinting every footstep from the one who walked before

That’s all I’ve come to know
To religiously adopt their old cliche
And impose their predetermined resume
To religiously adopt their old cliche
In their way..
And impose their predetermined resume
Track Name: Crying Door
CRYING DOOR

Blood runs thicker than rain
Shouldn’t bend to the whims of a blame
Unfortunately circumstance
Unveils the natural inclination
I never thought to expect from you

If there was ever a friend I could defend
I’d go the extra mile
Never devalue the love and history at all
But after all of the years
My greatest fears were realised
Redefined every memory
Retextured by the real you

Bonds may break from time to time
But my heart never picked up a single sign, no
It happened so quick, like the flick of a switch
And disregarded a myriad of good faith
Now I guess there’s nothing left to say

If there was ever a friend I could defend
I’d go the extra mile
Never devalue the love and history at all
But after all of the years
My greatest fears were realised
Redefined every memory
Retextured by the real you
