I Spy 03:18
I spy with my little eye a greedy man sneaking through the back door he waits then eats all the cake gobbling it up until there isn't anymore I spy with my little eye desolate people working till they're dry energy spent no time to relent nibble on the bones of the ninety-nine percent Gobble them, grind them gobble them, gobble and grind them gobble them, grind them poor souls cooking in the oven. I spy with my little eye rubbish bins fuller than the children who are lining the streets with no cake to eat begging for a slice of some generosity Yeah I spy with my little eye ambiguous digits impaling life so much pain for so little gain you're lucky if you're born in the right domain coz we... Gobble them, grind them gobble them, gobble and grind them gobble them, grind them poor souls cooking in the oven.

Soldier, lay down your weapons I've seen your scars how they shine. Why are you flinching? I will not injure you. Give me your trust, let me stitch your troubled mind. Only patches of you were bruised my needle and thread can gently mend you. Soldier, guarded defender with every battle your stitching comes undone. Just like a rag dolls off-cut material violent surrender was out of your control. Only patches of you were bruised my needle and thread can gently mend you.

Thoughts 04:16
I'm scared of these thoughts that are creeping on me in the back of my mind where no one can see. Is this a dream? When will I wake? I turn to the crow of an old rooster cry watch for the truth when you open your eyes. There's no disguise, I tell no lies. Let not your heart be afraid of the unknown. Embrace this occasion of madness with sorrow. Switch off the light and dance and in the darkness. Erase these intrusions of thought not as weakness. Oh please just shhhhh Try as I may I just can't get back in the door shut behind me and left me to sing. Where are the boundaries? Will they protect me? A bird in the breeze gifts me wings to take flight and I fly up above like a plane in the night. I won't deny, I touch the sky. Well let not your heart be afraid of the unknown. Embrace this occasion of madness with sorrow. Switch off the light and dance and in the darkness. Erase these intrusions of thought not as weakness. Oh please just shhhhh and ease you're troubled mind.

Try, did you try, would you try to be loyal or were you caught in the mood Sly, were you sly, did you slide under cover and chase the dark side of the moon Wait, did you wait, would you wait for my loving or was it too long to bare Think, did you think, oh would you think that betrayal would have me fall into despair Oh cruel Charlie, cruel Charlie did you forget me Charlie Was I a figment of imagination- tell me Charlie Cruel Charlie, cruel Charlie- don't twist the story Charlie it's never easy to appease a heart you've broken Charlie Charlie, Charlie. Blue, was it blue, were you blue in the morning after you woke up alone Drip, did it drip, drip, drip from the faucet when you realized that I was gone Send, did you send, would you send me a message comprised of dissonant grief Hope, did you hope, oh was there hope that my forgiveness would bring you some kind of relief Oh no well cruel Charlie, cruel Charlie did you forget me Charlie Was I a figment of imagination- tell me Charlie Cruel Charlie, cruel Charlie- don't twist the story Charlie, it's never easy to appease a heart you've broken Charlie Charlie, Charlie. Oh trickery Charlie is never gonna help you, Charlie. No Oh trickery Charlie stop plucking on my hear strings Charlie. Yeah Oh Charlie, Charlie why wont' you appease me Charlie Oh... Cruel Charlie, cruel Charlie did you forget me Charlie Was I a figment of imagination- tell me Charlie! Cruel Charlie, cruel Charlie- don't twist the story Charlie, it's never easy to appease a heart you've broken Charlie. (x2)

I'm a child of culture clash. One whole two halves. I crack the world and spin it all around. Breaking egg shells. How I wound up down on the ground sweeping love and dust into mounds. Father made me cautious of dreams but mother gave me time to believe. I'm a child of culture clash. One whole two halves. I crack the world and spin it all around. Breaking egg shells. Woman and man divided my kin had a momentary peak of instinct. I was born in their renegade storm that keeps on shaking the ground I stand on. I'm a child of culture clash. One whole two halves. I crack the world and spin it all around. Breaking egg shells. I am a child of culture clash I am a child of culture clash, culture clash yeah. I'm a child of culture clash. One whole two halves. I crack the world and spin it all around. Breaking egg shells.

Pity 05:20
Picture this, he was so very young. His eyes were full of confidence cascading like a sun on everyone. Proud and loud, but he's a youth that never speaks. Behind his lazy countenance was a fear that ran so deep. We all know, we've seen it before countless times, deceiving smiles. Moons and stars all stuck behind bars between the lines, are we blind? Pity, pity. Pity, pity. Her skin was smooth, ripened like sweet fruit. She had a patient temperament but she felt she could not fit inside her shoes. Marching on, she'd hum a wistful song badedebababa badabmmm why do I feel alone? Well- We all know, we've seen it before countless times, deceiving smiles. Moons and stars all stuck behind bars between the lines, are we blind? Pity, pity. Pity, pity. Who's to blame, who's to blame, who's to blame crosses on their name, hidden in the shade oh Who's to blame, who's to blame, who's to blame crosses on their name, hidden in the shade oh So hard to see a troubled energy. Prescriptions written for affliction won't be a remedy no. Walls they fall, and crumble around us all but in the end who'll be friend to open up their door?
