Binary 02:56
Lost in a crowd Of ones and zeroes Obsessed with numbers That don't add up to anything Fixated on the spotlight A dead channel Drawn like moth to flames Scratching and clawing Climbing over one another For adoration And recognition Words spoken As if they carried no weight As if they weren't bound By gravity Or consequence Scratching and clawing Climbing over one another For adoration And recognition No winners Only participants Reading between lines That aren't even there.

Sober Driver 02:41
I'm so sick I'm so sick I'm so sick of this I'm so sick Something's wrong With these streets We used to leave Only footprints Now we expel waste Lining the pavement With glass And vomit A showcase of man At its lowest point Succumbed to a thirst That can't be quenched Nor fulfilled A culture born from overindulgence What am I missing Why can't I comprehend This grotesque picture An endless binge And in its wake And in its wake A scene of shame Aimless bodies Bound to the bottle Consumed by the promise Of temporary comfort Craving the release The bottom may hold Only to find themselves There instead I am the sober driver.

Dwelling on the past A film on repeat Clouding my thoughts With what could have been Internalised fears Failures of old Missed chances Swallowing me whole Ingrained in my head That age is a measure Of what is tangible The wants and the needs And I want them And I need them But I don't even know why No matter how much I try Growing discontent Continues to thrive Sowing envy And resentment I become ripe With insecurities That continue to fester And bloom Time moves ever forward And I'm standing still Dwelling on the past A film on repeat Clouding my thoughts With what could have been Internalised fears Failures of old Missed chances Swallowing me whole Ingrained in my head Is a memorandum An apparition Forever haunting me.

Auto-motive 02:57
These passing lights They bathe the surface Draping it in shadow I become lost In its unending veil Glimpses of radiance Catch these tired eyes And draw me away From the road ahead And leads me to That unanswered question What awaits me there On the other side On the other side Falling into the clutches of fatigue A shapeless figure Hidden in the silence Its limbs outstretched Ready to embrace This body is just a passenger Helpless to what awaits ahead Impaired by exhaustion My mind wanders on Thoughts dwell on flowers Beside me in a hospital bed Musing over funerals And what could be said If release control And let my hands slip away If I close my eyes Would they ever open again?

Swell 03:21
We've been conditioned To hide how we feel Adopted masks of stone Just brittle facades Constructed from Ego and pride Too proud to speak We hold our tongues And let the water swell Because we'd rather drown Clinging to our shields To feel is to be human And we're human all the same To feel is to be human And we're human all the same To feel is to be human And we're human all the same To feel is to be human And we're human all the same To feel is to be human And we're human all the same To feel is to be human And we're human all the same To feel is to be human And we're human all the same To feel is to be human And we're human all the same Human all the same We've been conditioned To hide how we feel Adopted masks of stone Just brittle facades Constructed from Ego and pride Too proud to speak We hold our tongues And let the water swell Because we'd rather drown Clinging to our shields.
