Track Name: Karma Swords
Karma Swords

Well I'll use words like weapons
I'll verbally slay with
Destructive intentions
I'll blow you away with
Descriptive expletives
I'll use to diffuse
The warheads aimed at me
Which I'll in turn use and it's

Not a pretty picture
That I paint you see
Politically correct
Or analytically
It's just my position
Like ripping down road signs

I get a cut from

Karma swords
It didn't quite feel right
She hit me like gallons of
Alcohol
Like ice in the whiskey
I'll float like a Frisbee through
Closing doors
And I'll drown all the troubles
In millions of bubbles
Of liquid thought
With one crack of my hindsight
I'll switch off the limelight

With thoughts like pens
No ink in the well
I know that you know things
I know things as well
Thought I knew what to do
But I didn't know and I
Thought I'd stay and I'd play but
I got to go

Well it's not a new year
It's just a new day
I'm just a new person
With old things to say
Like smashing shop windows

I get a cut from

Karma swords
It didn't quite feel right
She hit me like gallons of
Alcohol
Like ice in the whiskey
I'll float like a Frisbee through
Closing doors
And I'll drown all the troubles
In billions of bubbles
Of liquid thought
With one crack of my hindsight
I'll switch off the limelight
A jutting intrusion
Will cause mass confusion
You can nuke the whole area
But first get me out of there

Get me out of here

He who is forged in the fire
Desires a flame
Real consequences of shifting the blame
Don't waste the time of your life
And don't wreck the road signs

Track Name: Hero Of War
Hero of war

He said son
Have you seen the world
What would you say
If I said that you could
Just carry this gun
You'll even get paid
I said well that sounds pretty good

Black leather boots
Spit shine so bright
They cut off my hair
But it looks alright
We marched and we sang
And we all became friends
As we learned how to fight

A hero of war
Yeah that's what I'll be
And when I come home
They'll be damn proud of me
I'll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
It's a flag that I love
And a flag that I trust

I kicked open the door
I yelled my commands
The children they cried
But I got my man
They took him away
With a bag over his face
From his family and friends

They took off his clothes
They twisted his hands
I told them to stop
Then I joined in
And we beat beat him with guns
And batons not just once
But again and again

'Cause I'm a hero of war
That's what I'll be
And when I come home
They'll be damn proud of me
I'll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
It's a flag that I love
It's a flag that I trust

She walked
Through smoke and through haze
I asked her to stop
I begged her to stay
But she pressed on
So I lifted my gun
And fired away

All the shells
They jumped through the smoke
And into the ground
Where the blood had now soaked
And she collapsed
With a flag in her hand
A flag as white as snow

Now I'm a hero of war
Is that what they see
Just medals and scars
So damn proud of me
I brought home that flag
Now it gathers dust
But it's a flag that I love
It's the only flag I trust

He said son
Have you seen the world
What would you say
If I said that you could...

Track Name: Goodbye My Old Friend
Goodbye My Old Friend

Listen to me
'Cause yes it is true
You came and you went
And I sure will miss you

Sight colour and sound
Sight colour and taste
If my mind will allow
Then my mind won't erase

So goodbye my old friend
I hope you do well
You helped redefine
All the laws of my world
So goodbye my old friend
Isn't it true
If I'd question why
Then you'd know what to do

Now good times were had
But all good times must end
At least I had the chance
To call you my best friend

Next time around
Or around the next time
Well I'll see you again
In the same frame of mind

So goodbye my old friend
I hope you do well
You helped redefine
All the laws of my world
So goodbye my old friend
Isn't it true
If I'd question why
Then you'd know what to do

I know that you had to go
But you never left me alone
'Cause the light in your eyes
Made the world feel like more of a home
We were the forebearers of ever and ever
Made the weight of the world that I felt
Lighter than air

So goodbye my old friend
I hope you do well
You helped redesign
All the flaws in my world

Track Name: Cinnamon & Cyanide
Cinnamon & Cyanide

Sound awake
Let's drive it right through the night
And it's fair to say
That I miss you

Let's hide away
Let's barricade ourselves up tight
And sleep all day

A dog eared page
I see it clearer when the veil clouds
Eyes wide like anime
And miss you

Fear not my fair weathered friend
Here comes the hand I can lend
I can't lend

What better way out
Cinnamon in cyanide out
What better way

All these actions keep following me
Developing into catastrophe
Culminate in the form of a dream
'Till I'm so damn messed up
I don't know who to be

All these actions keep following you
Did I stutter they'll run you right through
Conversations that you can't sit through
Now you're so damn messed up
You don't know what to do

Let us lay
Forget about the world and let it slide
When there's nothing left to say

Say something
Please say something
Why won't you wait for me
Please wait for me

What better way out
Cinnamon in cyanide out
What better way

All these actions keep following me
Developing into catastrophe
Culminate in the form of a dream
'Till I'm so damn messed up
I don't know who to be

All these actions keep following you
Did I stutter they'll run you right through
Conversations that you can't sit through
Now you're so damn messed up
You don't know what to do

All these actions keep following me
Wind water fire electricity
Elements that eventually
Will just swallow me up
Like the sand in the sea

Track Name: Lady Luck
Lady Luck

Home let it go
I was drifting persistent
Resistance in audio clouds
When I
That's when I found
A small rift in the system
That favours rich boys and cute girls
Exclusively

So I thought maybe I won't imitate myself
'Cause lady luck won't shine on someone else
Well I need to lower all the limitations on myself
So lady luck can shine

Then one day I learned to breathe
In and out
I was drifting persistent
Resistance in these audio clouds
When I
That's when I found
A small test manifesting
All the best parts of me in my world
Exclusively

So I thought maybe I won't imitate myself
'Cause lady luck won't shine on someone else
I need to lower all the limitations on myself
So lady luck can shine

When it's all said and done then I'll know
That I was directing my very own show
The cast and the crew they all took a bow
As the audience cheered I knew that somehow
We'd be fine

If we'd just let the light in

Let's sing and let's dance
There no time to hesitate

Let's sing and let's dance
There's so much to celebrate
It's your map to navigate
