Track Name: Free Rein
I know there's something strange
how you're given such free rein
while I am so contained

In a box that was designed
with a particle in mind

I graduated from
the point of no return
to make a living as a fine arts
bachelor

Now I'm thinking about you
when I'm talking to myself
responding as you would
not that you would ever help

I know there's something strange

In a box that was designed
with a particle in mind
In a box that was designed
with a particle in mind

I know there's something strange
how you're given such free rein
while I am so contained
Track Name: Clarify
Lord, it's too heavy
your law is too thick
your word is too sacred
to trust me with

What if I'm not ready?
then everyone will see
all the excuses I stand behind
logic would beat

But you neglected ...to clarify

What I should do
with my night
in case you don't
have time

What of the road never taken?
the permanent possible past
each night afraid that the morning
won't come if I ask

Cause you neglected ... to clarify

What I should do
with my life
in case you don't
have time
Track Name: Why Do U Offer??
How far do I care to go?
what really am I looking for?
do I want these kinds of thoughts?
that I can never revise
in and out
of characters
you bring me back to life
I rise!

Stick up, jump ship
tell me how it is
why do you offer?
what you never had to give

How much do I have left to say?
everyone's so on guard
nobody will touché
everyone's so on guard
nobody will touché!

Stick up, jump ship
tell me how it is
why do you offer
what you never had to give
Track Name: Flies With Honey
say goodbye to your last hope
your ride just fell through
your fire will burn out soon

catching flies with honey?
remember to be patient
i catch more flies with honey
than your righteous indignation

what happened to the day?
did i waste it?
take something sacred
and selfishly make it

a monument to sleeping in
a testament to self illusion

anyway, i’m not moving at all
just writing every thought down
to throw against the wall

in retrospect, i could have waited
instead of taking the long way
i cut and pasted
the time i knew it would take
to turn to hatred

bullshit, i don’t buy it at all
keep savouring your last few breaths
it’s inevitable

say goodbye to your last hope
your ride just fell through
your fire will burn out soon
