Track Name: Titanic
You are the reason,
My treason,
The sleepless nights,
Why I can't tell wrong from right.
Because you know,
What you are.
I've got my sights set on you,
Going straight for the heart.
They say a captain always goes down with his ship,
Fuck this I'm bailing anyway, fuck this I'm bailing anyway!
Track Name: Un-entitled
Today I saw a man
Who couldn't make ends meet.
His face down in a gutter,
With no shoes on his feet.
He had a job once,
Kids and a wife.
But you politicians persist
With your picture-perfect lives.

And I hope you bankers can't
Sleep at night.
I hope your demons confront you,
And eat you alive.
I hope you wake wide eyed,
In a cold sweat.
I wish I wasn't wasting my breath.

We live in a country of snakes and crooks.
You're stealing our future and money from us.
Keep your Mercedes and your house in Spain.
There's people without homes and you're all to blame.

Everybody in this city had a heart of gold.
You took out freedom and you sold our souls.
I'll do something about it now in a minute,
Or maybe nothing just like everyone else.

I put my fingers in my mouth.

Everybody in this city had a heart of gold.
You took out freedom and you sold our souls.
I'll do something about it now in a minute,
Or maybe nothing just like everyone else.
Track Name: Blood is About as Thick as a Cuckoo's Neck
Do you lie awake in bed at night?
Do you wonder where I am?
Do you hope that I've turned out all right?
Do you wonder if your boy has become a man?

Are you guilty?
Are you glad?
Are you alive?
I'm hoping that you're coping with living a lie.

Let me paint a picture, it'll make things clearer.

I want to keep a steady head and suppress it cause,
That's what works best.
I want to wash my hands off this mess, and try to forget that there's
an anchor, that is dragging me down to the depths.
I clutch at straws like a drowning man, I want to live again.

I could dig until I couldn't dig any deeper.
Cause a life spent searching is a life well spent,
That's what I think.

I built this on my own,
With my blood, sweat, flesh and bones.
You left me here for dead.
But i can keep my head above the water.

Sleep sound,
I've found my way (back home)
You're wrong,
I'll be something more than you.

I look up to you for the choice you made,
I look up to you for giving me away.
