Track Name: Shapeless
There is a timeless ache
Constantly shifting shape
Like trying to barricade the sea
The permanent crack
Of a descended path
Falling into a river of serpents
Too shallow to drown
Too deep to breathe
Suffering, here is your crown
Wear it proud
Track Name: Become
I used to scream in my sleep
Now I'm reduced to snowy mountain peaks
In dreams, I walk with no-one
Aimless, hovering above
Thousands of milligrams
To try to defeat
The human condition within me
I will not become
The empty shell wished upon
Track Name: Factory Suicide Nets
Today I untied the almighty gordian knot
Quietly routing my escape plot
Always on watch, always a guard
Running will only get so far
During dinner I sound the alarm
"Goodbye you fascists!!!" screaming down the hall
Adrenaline coating my insides
As I fall, I smile, until I reach concrete
(I was a lucky one before the nets)
Track Name: The Joy Virus
Secure in my solitude
Watching others wear the cuffs
Joy is a virus remedied with age
Crippling anything that blossoms
Children raising children
In fear of isolation
Of leaving nothing behind
No impact in absence
