Track Name: Untitled 1
Another twenty-something young man
who yearns so desperately for fame
reaches for the pen and paper
but finds he has nothing to say

so he looks for inspiration
turns to an unbroken heart
and it hums a catchy melody
as he searches rhymes for love

and I know you mean no harm
but something doesn't sit right
like seeing a rich man in poor man's clothes
but you're going places
well groomed and words so remiss

and maybe it's jealousy
for the lens through which you see
and the light that once had graced me
but left for better company

so in the dark I lay
bitching and moaning
but I'd rather that than be
anything like you

and I know you mean no harm
but something doesn't sit right
like seeing a rich man in poor man's clothes
but you're going places
well groomed and words so remiss
Track Name: Black & White
exhausted parents have come home
far too tired to teach their young
cartoon films instead
to do the job half done

and the lesson to be learned
good and evil are easy to discern
no need to think or wonder
how on earth we got here

they speak of love and happiness for all
then condemn you should you ever fall
sleeping soundly thanks to all the good they've done
what a hero, an outstanding citizen

well why don't you want to see
the final act of this comedy
perhaps you'll like the next one
because there's always another to watch

once wise words used
to justify such ignorance
twisted and mangled for selfish purpose
and feel good intolerance

they speak of love and happiness for all
then condemn you should you ever fall
sleeping soundly thanks to all the good they've done
what a hero, an outstanding citizen
Track Name: My Key
boarded up
wait for the flood
to wash it away
just for a day

and the irony of
how we feel alive
fumble and fall
tear at the inside

which way to go
where will you take me
elated or dolorous?
ragged and weary

trading bliss for solace
in good company
what do they see?
a freak show
in you and me

imparting wisdom
in this time of need
to "stay based", you say
"we're crooked souls,
on the same boat"

which way to go
where will you take me
elated or dolorous?
ragged and weary
Track Name: Re: Cig Song
oh friend
it started raining
just like you said
but not the kind that you'd expect because

I feel nothing
but time slipping by
a shallow smile and
an empty heart

at least I've got my smokes
and though I feel my body dying
I can't bear to quit
they remind me of
they taste of a much
better time

oh friend
i've been sober for
almost a month now
it's the longest that I've been
in a long while

I thought that it'd help
but I'm more depressed now
I hope at least
you're doing well my friend

at least I've got my smokes
and though I feel my body dying
I can't bear to quit
they remind me of
they taste of a much
better time

it doesn't snow here
the days are long
and I can't see the moon
because
of the smog
