Track Name: Hell
This is my hell
Watch as it melts
Walking on love with no taste and no smell
Give me your hand
Your mouth in the sand
Layers of white that I don't understand

I don't want to be your inferior identical twin

No brother have I
Please don't force me to lie
Your blue expectations when I can't see the sky
Make our way up
And make our way down
We will be naked when we come out

I don't want to be your inferior identical twin

Breathe in the smoke
Make sure that you choke
Overpowering sweetness, a humourless joke
I don't yet know myself
But this is my hell
Walking through love with no taste and no smell

I'm not gonna be your inferior identical twin

But you pull me back
And you make me fight
I can't turn my back
And I can't win but you'll always lose...
Track Name: Let Your Bones Dissolve
And so this is it
It knows every corner
No exit this time
I'll accept my fate

Curl up in a ball -
Easier to swallow
Gently, down I fall
Soon my memories will follow

Only a sensation
My bones have not dissolved
A choice is on the table
They're waiting for my call

The question seemed so easy -
Desire to survive
But when everything is resting on me
I must count down from five... four... three...
Track Name: Shipwrecked (The Same Predicament)
Here I am on this island again
The ship teased the shoreline and turned round again
I'm so tired of swimming, I never reach anywhere

Saltwater worsens my thirst
The promise of tasting a bubbles that bursts
In the clear grey skies of anywhere

Searching inside for reassurance
Voices empty as night
Running out of the will to endure this
Alone

Here I am in this tunnel again
With no light to guide me, no sign of a friend
And every step feels like the last as it echoes right through

Heart weighing down as I call
For some sure arms to stop my exhaustion and fall
To a place that is warm and where peace lives and echoes right through

Searching inside for reassurance
Voices empty as night
Running out of the will to endure this
Alone

And all these words are just flowers at my tombstone
And all these thoughts are just weak
And every memory grey as I walk past
Another blank face in the street
And this game doesn't need another player
And this picture could use some more pink
Want to grab myself the Mona Lisa and say:
This is done, now I don't need to think anymore.
Track Name: Me or Them? (Looking For The Curls)
The kids threw stones across the river
Where the spray paint does not face the trees
Hurling their parents' neglect and their unfed desires and their poverty

Into the air
Into the air
Into the air
And into the water

Overcoming the challenge of distance
And none of them seemed like they cared
That their friends were their targets, their angers all knew that the rush of the game

Made this war
Made this war
Made this war
Made it right

The kids threw stones as I walked past
In the middle of that jealous road
And they were not aiming at me, they just did not understand that my rage

Was equally true
Was equally true
Was equally true
Their eyes were all blue

Now the kids still throw stones at each other
But I have re-found all those pretty red curls
The eyes of my father turn upwards and gaze eternally

Into the air
Into the air
Into the air
And into the water
Into the water
Track Name: The Killer (Fire On Your Hands)
Hey, comedian
Would you assassinate these Christians for me?
Hey, comedian
If I gave you this gun
Would you do it - one, two, three?

Watch for those security guards
They'll pop up and then you will have
Fire on your hands
Fire, bloody fire, on your hands

Hey, what have you done?
Now I'm stuck inside this crowd of vulnerables
Out, against the glass,
I see a piece of paper
Push itself right flat

Watch for those security guards
They'll pop up and then you will have
Fire on your hands
Fire, bloody fire, on your hands

Look at this old man
He can barely run from those who chase him
I help him up the escalator
And now we're on the roof
With all the victims' names laid out
But now he's crying - truly
And deep inside, I know
He never wanted anything to be this way

Watch for those security guards
They'll pop up and then you will have
Fire on your hands
Fire, bloody fire, on your hands
