Track Name: Pacific Displacement
Another day in my life
I see a man
Filled with strife
The man comes to me
Asks how I get through the day
I look at him and say
I look at the man and this is what I say
Put your hands together and pray
Nothing will answer but it gets you through the day
Looking though the lens
Capturing natural mise en scene
Destitute wasteland
with no hope
Substance used to cope
Another tale of this town
Another man sleeping on the ground
Too expensive to make it by
We have tents that multiple
Another tenet city has been built
Landlords feel no guilt
Change would have made a change
But now the person is too deranged
Raised off the feeling of despair
Rents go up and no one cares
Generations forced out their homes
Foreclosing on those with loans
Another day in this town
Another needle on the ground
20 bucks for a escape
Tents decorate the land scape
Decaying and dying
People all crying
War torn and burned
No lessons ever fucking learned
Don’t wast death
with your last breath
Innocence deceased
A bullet offers release
Track Name: SSRI
Life keeps kicking me while I’m down
My so-called friends aren’t around
Do everything to make ends meet
But I Can’t get on my feet
Theirs a devil on my shoulder
Wants to watch me smolder
Wants to see me burn
Watches me and this is what he learns
I’m falling and dying and can’t stand
Too proud to ask for a helping hand
The Devil in my head
Says I’m better off dead
Past keeps calling out
Too loud can’t here you shout
Who was I yesterday
Wouldn’t do it a different way
Lashing out for the high
Forgiveness comes when I die
Cursed is the man no one cries for
That fate
Is standing at my door
Hell is in my head
Paradise comes when I’m dead
Cursed is the man no one cries for
Absent tears never hit the floor
I feel a knife in my back
I know I’m still on track
It’s darkest before the light
I might not make it through the night
Death is calling me
Pain is in my veins
Hatred for myself
Unstable mental health
Devil in my head
Says I’m better off dead
Match and a spark
I’m still in the dark
Death sounds beautiful
I know I’m being a fool
My eyes start to dilate
Pain turns into hate
Two faced and bringing me down
Everyone wants to wear the crown
It’s darkest before the light
I might not make it through the night
Track Name: Ten 2 Twelve
I’m never fucking talking
I never fucking. Will
My lips stay shut
Locked and sealed
Too many friends serving time
Because some dropped a dime
Someone chose to speak
Now their echo shrieks
So easy not to talk
But now your jaw is broken from the padlock
Sick of people saying names
Flap your lips that’s your claim to fame
Misery and torment
Bound in a cage
Same fucking story on another mans
Someone chose to speak
A echo and shriek
Too many friends serving time
Because someone dropped a dime
A decade lost because you’re weak
Those actions weren’t yours to speak
Wrong and right a line so thin
Who are you to say what’s a sin
How could you turn on a friend
Now I’m bound to you by hate
Your open mouth
Sealed your fate
