Track Name: More Than You Ought To Know
i may know that themes are harsh, but the words i say, they so mean more, id rather take a punch in the face, then have this microphone taken away from me, what i say, its from inside, it means so much to me, id rather take a punch right to the face, you leave me on this island taking this away from me, but what you don’t know is this island is driving me insane, to tell you the truth it takes my heart away, slowly but surely eating my words, the more i wait, the worse it gets i hope you can just go away, i close my eyes but you remain, ill never stop, you wil not get me to, choke on my words, i am my own entire person, you will not get me to take this back, i know exactly what it is, i know that you try to protect to shield the eyes of the children, but now i need to say my piece, so i can just say the words, that explain just how i feel and where i truly stand, im not a fool, im not a tool, i am just my own man, you leave me on this island, taking this away from me, but what you don’t know is this island, is driving me insane
Track Name: Sgt. Beatdown
now i feel it setting in, over thinking all the time, all these thoughts through my head, now I just need some time to unwind, thoughts going back and forth, getting nervous all the time, not sure just what to do, now I just need some time to unwind, paranoia, its setting in, its setting in, paranoia, its killing me, its killing me, paranoia, its setting in, its setting in, paranoia, its killing me, its killing me, killing me, killing me, making up these stories, beginning to believe them, starting to get worried, need time to forget them, my mind just brings them back, to haunt me in my sleep, all I want is to forget, go back to counting sheep, paranoia, its setting in, its setting in, paranoia, its killing me, its killing me, paranoia, its setting in, its setting in, paranoia, its killing me, its killing me, guess i just need some time to think over things rationally, just clear my head go right to bed and finally get to, finally get to sleep
Track Name: For What Its Worth
as i look into your eyes, i see the reflection, of the fluorescent sunset and wonder, what is this for? is there a purpose? what is this for? i cant find a purpose, so as i approach this crossroad, neither left nor right will i go, pulling straight ahead never looking back, creating a path of my own, i wont follow you at the crossroad, this is for myself and not for you, these are the choices that ive made, and i will learn to live with them, so many questions that cant be answered, why are we here? what am i to do? and if i follow my heart it wont prove me wrong, but if i listen to the voices, ill string my own noose, in this world its just me myself and i, im alone to make these choices, contemplating your demise, just me myself and i, and i know that i will stay true to myself, thats all right its all that matters, so as i approach this crossroad, neither left nor right will i go, pulling straight ahead never looking back, creating a path of my own, i wont follow you at the crossroad, this is for myself and not for you, these are the choices that ive made, and i will learn to live with them, in this world its just me myself and i, im alone to make these choices, and i know that i will stay true to myself, thats all right its all that matters
