Track Name: Breaks Metal
Just an orphan a forgotten son
there's a void where my heart was
fuck the sidelines, i'm going in coach
all out
all in
all you doubters on your couches keep searchin'
keep searchin'

You don't recognize how hard it is to lie all the time
i'm not saying it's right
but even pipes burst when there's ice
in the lines and pressure is applied
it breaks metal breaks spines
breaks metal breaks spines
Track Name: What You Remember
Suddenly it seems we're traveling uphill
scattered out by the waves
the ocean is pulling us in
spread out like the land like a mass
everyday transparent fades

leaves just what you did
or what you remember of it

It seems you will do what you want with me
arrive on time
a simple show of respect

leaves just what you did
or what you remember of it
Track Name: Fed in the End
I sing this song for friends who're gone
so long so long
with arms outstretched
you will be fed in the end
