Track Name: Dirt Under The Bare Clause
Born of empires or of malice
Their guilt is oft disguised under avarice
They think that they can chain me with indifference
I’d rather let them drain me with their interest

Live and learn

Knee deep in gut reactions, I think I need a rest
While some even say the job’s the simplest
We raise the bar degrees, or equivalents
All that we ask is your reverence

The hourglass has emptied, it’s getting tedious
I pour my heart and soul, but something is amiss
Justice has escaped, there’s only remnants
Extinguishing my embers for being frivolous
Track Name: Second Guess
Was I wrong?

I sure have taken a long long time
to get here, I'd beg for forgiveness
I should trust my instinct, but I don't know

Why am I part of the machine
I'm just not connected to the Earth
Would I make the same mistakes if immortal

Should have said something else
If only I hadn't missed that appointment
If only I'd talked to that girl
I should eat healthier, travel more, confess love, play more guitar
Track Name: Fruits of Labour
