Track Name: Rainbow Riffs
As people we must remain kinetic as to avoid the shadows of our past
(I want to grow wool over my eyes to keep out the biting cold)
I will attempt to grow until my bones no longer fit my skin
Because I have learnt the hard way that nostalgia is death
(Blackened clouds taint grey hearts and suffocate open lungs)


So I'll kiss your toes.
Because I don't deserve to look at your face
Sex is the last thing on my mind
but that doesn't mean I’m not using you

So I'll kiss your toes.
Because I don't deserve to look at your face
I am nothing compared to cheeks and a forehead
Not worth of my lips
(Blindfolds are just as bad as empty sockets)

I push out all this misplaced affection
because I’m scared of appreciating myself
I’ll fight off my insecurities with eccentric romance

You are just an idea in my headfilling up a hole that my past has left
(Transparency breeds loneliness)
Track Name: 8
You don't know how good it feels
To see you still alive

I'm sorry I wasn't there
The fact you forgive me hurts the most.

The flowers I present you
Are that of a wilted bouquet
Track Name: SOUM
Social situations have been crafted, so that a law bound relationship is held up by society, yet same sexes will be held down

Double standard, double standard.

Blatant conservative ideas born out of fear
Clinging to words from an old book you read when it suits.
Centophobic bastard
Surely the church has bigger issues to deal with

sSop hiding your naivety in persecution. You are weak, you are scared and you are wrong.


I’d like to see you survive in your loveless marriage when you have weight of thousands of angry opposers on your back.

(Now tell me it's wrong and you're not just ignorant. Double standard.)
Love is love. Deal with it
