Track Name: Paradise Hell
I can't take these ghosts in my head
They linger around and make a mess
Fading memories, open infected sores
Alienated by ones I should love
The blisters that formed are now calloused tough
In disbelief, now anger is my pain
Too many promises turned into lies
I believed every one and defended your pride
The stain remaining and never dissipates
My heart lead to a broken dreams
Now I ain’t got time to be wasting away
Twisting my actions into maleficent ways
Alienated by ones I should love
The blisters that formed are now calloused rough
In disbelief, now anger is my pain
Worn out repeatedly
Calloused rough routinely
It should be no surprize
Under a Seaside Sky
Track Name: Damaged Goods
Could it be that I do not care
about much, if anything at all
Losing a battle will not stand
That’s not acceptable
Damaged Goods (3x)
So many things get stranded and
Lost, Forgotten with time
They become the building blocks
of a ruined mind
Damaged Goods
Ramshackled memories
Brainwashed, and no ones at fault
Maze of thoughts with no direction
Not acceptable
Falling apart is never smart
There is some time, Answers to find
Lost in the Maladies
Damaged Goods
Track Name: Rot & Ruin
I may not be the most romantic
Bearer of flowers I’m not
Tossed in the trash
trampled and forgotten
back to the dirt where they rot
and rot….
I wish that I had some more time to talk
Over some beers and a shot
So many questions that never get answered
Don't understand why I won’t
I’ll never know the truth
behind all the lies
Maybe it’s me who is wrong (2x)
am I Ruined...
Track Name: Slave
I am just a slave
Who complains, complains
Working day and night
So my bills get paid
Work in the Nighttime
Work in the Daytime
Working Anytime
Corporate profits
Earning record gains
While my steady wage
remains unchanged
Work in the Nighttime
Workin the Daytime
Working Anytime
A company makes millions
While I sweat until I die
Some call it security
While I call it a lie
I am just a slave to a steady wage
Track Name: Frustrate on Repeat
It’s the same old story
Over and over
I don’t need cheap tales, stories or lines
Most of which I’ve heard now for most of my life
I just want a straight answer
Don’t over complicate it
Wonder why it turned out this way?
You share in the blame
There’s no escape
Frustrate on Repeat
Numbing routine
Never surprised by
The things you deny
Your insecurities
Towing the line
If you want it to stay this way
Keep adding to the strain
And nothing will change
Frustrate on Repeat
A numbing routine
The same old stories
Over and and over
Seems a bit tragic
Broken like a record
Frustrate on Repeat
A numbing routine
Frustrate on Repeat
Broken and incomplete
There is no escape
