Track Name: Thunder Swamp
LYRICS: i think i'm sinking down, will i drown in this mire, do you feel the thunder coursing thru this place, it's getting so dark out here, i think we've gone and lost our way, creatures scurry past me but fear is not an option, i'm stuck here in this swamp but i don't care to get out cause i can feel the thunder coursing thru my veins.
Track Name: I Know
LYRICS: when i was little i got beat up and picked on all the time, but there were never ever marks to prove the pain, just a scared heart and just a scared ego, you got to look deep to see this pain. i know, im not... i'm not stupid. i have this piece that's been missing all my life, it's a piece in the shape of a heart and it leaves this black hole for everyone one to see thru, but they still don't see me. i know, blah blah blah... iknowwhatloveis. i know somethings but i can't seem to figure out the rest, so i'll just sit, stare into space, growing older, growing dumber, losing purpose and going numb. i'm losing purpose and going numb. i know you, but you know nothing.
Track Name: Waiting
LYRICS: i feel sometimes like i'm waiting so long for my chance to jump, hoping to find myself, my place, but i'm afraid that i'm just waiting, just to jump off the edge of it all. will you hear me whisper or whistle.
Track Name: Bad Men Have Beards
LYRICS: bad men have beards, just look at me, i've lost my way. or so you tought. bad men have beards, sad men shed tears, for the women who hide what lies within.
Track Name: Knives
LYRICS: my loneliness begs please come back to me, my hurt screams just get the fuck away. i don't want to hear that you're hurting too cause you couldn't hurt enough to satisfy me. got to the point i don't see the point, so i hate myself, but do it just for me. i don't know what this is but i see it's sick and so far away cause of blame and shame. got a knife in my gut, but there's another in my back, what happen to me, what happen to me. don't know what to say or what to do, i lost my way, may we do this again. got to the point, don't see the point, so hate yourself, but do it just for me, me, me. got a knife in my gut and there's another in my back. what happen to me, what happen to me. my loneliness begs please come back to me, my hurt screams just get the fuck away. i don't want to hear that you're hurting too cause you couldn't hurt enough to satisfy me.
