Track Name: Locked In
Keep watching, refreshing, doing nothing. Keep buying shit to replace what meant something. Stalking old friends hoping they found a way out. I’m not fooled, we’re all sad actors. Images of war knowingly scrubbed clean. Other people’s children, other people’s skin. Knowledge your birthright apathy your sin. Blood and sweat forgotten & foreign. When we step out, into the sun, legs shaking we’ll be free. Holding out hope. Please take it and drag me back to a real world.
Track Name: Suspicion Police
They have it covered. Armed to the teeth. Nails bit off in anticipation of the end. You’re surrounded by suspicion police. They filled the sky with eyes and our phones with ears. You must report all that you hear. You’re surrounded, ask for seconds. You’re surrounded, get fat on fear.
Track Name: Button Up
What were you like before you had it? When did you give in? All at once, or piece by piece? Breathe easy because you’re see through. Not an ideal stain in sight. Or do you still wake up sick? I scream, oh no! I can’t believe my eyes. We’re all still sick inside. You’re a young man. Life in front of you. Take it off. You’re a young man.
Track Name: Brain Dead
I’m brain dead, dazed, glued for hours, can’t get up. Eyes wide, you’re the living dead. Afraid of everything. A life full of allergy. It’s just a matter of time until it goes away. Accept everything and get nothing. How much is all hope?
