Track Name: Skin Cell
Curse this body
That I was thrown into
It doesn't match doesn't fit
Any of my moods
It's cracked it's crass
It's falling apart
Scraping the barrel
For the live in my heart

Can you help me I feel ill
Trapped in the skin that I'm in
Can you help me I feel sick
Trapped in the skin that I'm in

Let's abandon
All the structures
That kept you closed off
For all of your life
For all of your life
I can't wait to meet all of you
I can't wait to meet all of you

I am cracked
I am crass
I am falling apart.
Track Name: The Self Is A River
The self is a river that runs to the sea, and at the mouth you loose sight of me, there's a lot of transparency out here, and fish to eat had you a spear,
but violence was never inside you, so you starved and you drowned too, the sheer size of life scared you to death, ashamed of the small puddle you left,

Over time, You were watered down
I can barely make you out now
Salty lips dry throat scarred skin
Only you know how see through you've been.

My mistakes
Are not yours
To define.
Track Name: I Hear Voices
I have voice in my head
It screams at me to fall in line
And anything that is different
Is a pathetic sort of life,
But I've heard voices
There is some that warm my heart
So many different people
Ready to tear the world apart,

One day
They're going to drown you out
one day, politely get out of the way,

I have a voice in my head
Tells me I'm not good enough
For this earth or a life or any form of love,
I wanna hear your voice
Cuz I can't see a thing,
It's time to sit and listen
Take notes let's start learning,

One day
They're going to drown you out
one day, politely get out of the way,

Infinite voices
Much more varied than our own,
They need the Stage, it's our time to dance to their songs.
Track Name: Gentro Punx Ruined This Town
They are wolves in wolf costumes
Gentrifying everything,
No safe place / no alternative
A vanilla flavoured monopoly
You can find me, Stuck between
constant fear, & empathy
Not for you, But for the victims you turn blind eyes on.

These men they hunt in packs
Then say 'it's not so bad!'
Repackage this heart-
Rebrand, time right, sell well

There is sword in every stone
Will you choose to destroy or rebuild?
You're violence personified with added free will...
There is a dagger in every boulder will you choose to build or break ?
Track Name: And Then We Washed Away
Blessed are the happy go lucky
Girls and boys,
With their meds and navigation systems to stay clear of the void,
But I know that it's so much darker just one layer down,
Be careful where you dig, flood the street and then we start to drown,

Time is a snake that survives eating its own tail,
Repeated performance improves our chance to fail,
But tell me how can you measure something that you can't see,
You start melt, start to crack
The body becomes a stream,

And then we wash away!
