Track Name: Sword
Broke man with bitter pockets
take a life just for a wallet.
And boy racers with little dicks
take a life just for quick kicks.
One second, bad decision.
Life goes faster than its given.
and I’m not ready for it.

The sword that dangles above
Throne or bed, it hangs by a thread
The sword that dangles above

Theres courage to die by the mountain’s side.
Can’t comprend decisions.
In ticking: ‘do not resuscitate’, theres some peace in that,
but please break my breastplate trying.
Cause theres nothing I fear more, than fear of dying.

The sword that dangles above
Throne or bed, it hangs by a thread
The sword that dangles above
Its time to become good, for the sword dangles above.
Track Name: Tradition
“You’ll understand when your older, tradition is a lovely thing."

The way we knock on doors, before filling halls?
How blood speaks every annum,
and we watch same speech again?
Formal attire, pairing rules,
codes upon customs, oh for what shoes?

Ceremonies, proceedings, recollection,
Engagement, birth and graduation.
I care not.

What bird to lay upon silver plate,
between two companies of secret hate?
Somber gloom on days of rest?
Tears of joy on new nest?
Congratulations on no sleep and crying?

Ceremonies, proceedings, recollection.
Endless work, death and single vocation.
I care not.

No picture of me above mantle.
No twisted flower to remember battle.
No shame for unmarried couple.
No need to keep contact with cousins.

Ceremonies, proceedings, recollection
Expectations, too hard to live with/by
I care not.
Track Name: Nightmares
Oh can it be, another idol’s death? This president elect?
Close the boarders, suspect your neighbours!
Did you shred all your bank papers?
Could you consume more newspapers?

When you lay awake in the night
are these the thoughts that grip you tight?

Put yourself in safe space, for parents sake.
Pray you’ll make 50k, then everything will be okay.
Maintain online presence ban all weapons!
Don’t reach out, just keep on yelling.

When you lay awake in the night
are these the thoughts that grip you tight?
