Track Name: Mercy Killing
Strung Up by old Habits
Native to better ways & better days
Further and faster to the healing stage
Hidden from the charm Hidden in the shade


You Can Take the head off
Don't mean the body won't
Run and run and Run
Til my feet give in
I will Avoid my Mercy Killing


What i failed to keep
exhausting all the possibilities , from heavy sleep
The loudest Bark has the weakest bite
Left to thirst left to Sigh


You Can Take the head off
Don't mean the body won't
Run and run and Run
Til my feet give in
I will Avoid my Mercy Killing
Track Name: Strange Way
So many bitter People
carry cruses on their lips
and every empty word that
passes them , set sail
a sinking ship
but your not like the others
your a sure fire bet to quit

All your soldiers you deserted
with the honest intent
and of the recently converted
love is pushing a wheel chair
not writing in wet cement

What a strange way to show you care
Took everything you could

The building burned down
as you stood in plain sight
and if you muddy the water around
you won't have to dive so deep
to hide

What a strange way to show you care
Took everything you could

But your not like the others
your a sure fire bet to quit
Track Name: Dirty Mirrors
The river flows full of empties,
throwaway them bones
Some will reach the sea while others settle in the stone
The sun hurts my eyes and the moon makes my shadow longer
We rely on beads and bottles to occupy our fingers
We deny the needs we have until the doubts no longer linger
The sun hurts my eyes and the moon makes my shadow longer
Need something to believe in and a reason to belong here

Kaleidoscope with a dirty mirror
so when i look for Symmetry all i see is blur
i take a second glance because
i have to know for sure

The cracks amongst the paving are trying to join as one
And all that is worth saving you abandoned on the run
The sun hurts my eyes and the moon makes my shadow longer
Need something to believe in and a reason to belong here

Kaleidoscope with a dirty mirror
so when i look for Symmetry all i see is blur
i take a second glance because
i have to know for sure
Track Name: Antlers
Trouble it lives inside me, Trouble leads my way
an honest day, an honest days working
all debts left unpaid
by the time you kiss the coward
before you miss your hour

Will my Antlers Grow back stronger
on the day they fall?
Would it make you happy to hang them
on your wall?

No skin, no skin off my teeth
so it goes to blame
bad news moves faster than good
Prying eyes to the grave
Married Fast Married too young
Doors left open for Cheap Fun

Will my Antlers Grow back stronger
on the day they fall?
Would it make you happy to hang them
on your wall?
