Track Name: Dangerously Deluded, Party Of One
you think that you lock them out of your room
but you lock yourself in
you've invented a war to fight, and you'll never win
you'd be surprised how little people think
about what you stand for
I'll never dance for you, cause you've nailed my feet to the floor
what's it like to live where you do?
I hope I'm around when the world fucks you
Track Name: Kramer Vs. Hamer
I string up my guitar
it's going good so far
I clip the E-wire, it arcs and cuts a hairline
in my left hand, on the righthand side
blood ekes out, red on the silver
it speaks with the voice of a river
I bleed through my guitar
my greatest mouthpiece in life so far
blurred line between soapbox and speaker
without the audio, the words somehow weaken
where is the focus, mouth or the music?
and which would I rather have fall under scrutiny?
I love my guitar. I hate my guitar.
Track Name: A Season In Stasis
wandering through sweat-soaked days
I'm impotent (not in that way)
to change the ocean of routine that's tireless, yet tiring
I can no more change this life than I can change my name
it's hard to hit your mark when you refuse to aim
I roam from place to place, and they all look the same
I'm rocketing through stasis, I'm drowning in the rain
if this season never ends, if I should miss my train
then bring with you this souvenir that proves
that I was here today
