Track Name: Storms
Hearts'll be a ruined
Impaled through the chest
A sturdy steed, a legion!
Yonder, below the crest.
A smoldering storms a brewin'
Souls they acquiesce!!

A cave in my chest
Abandoned with only
That faint rhythm
of your sternum
Track Name: Implicated
Implicated and worn with ambition
But the premise is revolting
You gotta have a hostage
To negotiate
I said, "Patience is a virtue"
You said, "Patience is a vulture"

Cherish the moment you have

Implicated and worn with failure
Wear it auspiciously!
Your face is worn like a
Failed state
Destroyed but free
but too... Free! Free!
Track Name: Cocaine
They say you gotta do cocaine
To be cool
But I can't afford that
Just a broke fool
With my head down
Thinkin' with my heart
Plottin' empires
To set us apart

Nose to the grind stone
Wracking our brains
Head on the choppin' block
You know it feels the same

Guillotines are cruel
Shinin' pristine
Underneath the full moon
I love you baby
I know we got nothin'
You're gonna have to trust me
now ain't that something?!

You're suspicious
Of my God
You gotta understand
It's all I've got.
I love you baby
I know we got nothin'
Your gonna have to trust me
Now ain't that something?!

Keep moving
Keep your head down!
Ya never know
Whose around
Ya never know!
