Track Name: Round Two
I’ve learned a lesson or two
No intent to teach ‘em to you
I think I’m a better man
Than when I first began
Track Name: Incomplete
He’s had a dream for a long time
But doesn’t know where to begin
She’s been writing for years now
But hasn’t showed a single friend
These things are so important
Passion burns like a hundred suns
You’ve stripped him down and beat him up
You’ve stolen a piece of her self confidence
There something missing deep inside
This is not all there is in life
Track Name: Opposite of Antithesis
She sits upon the ground watching as ants crawl ‘round
Then looks up at the sky full of birds flying high
She can hear the noise songs of praise songs of joy
The sun is shining bright sharing rays and giving life
She sits upon the ground leaning o'er a ceramic crown
Then looks up to the lights incandescent not real bright
She can hear the noise voices tell her to destroy
The sun cannot come in with windows shut and walls of tin
She once had hope for life now it’s gone there’s just a knife
Track Name: Sew Me Back Together
Where did you go? Where are you going now?
Your feet are off the path and now you’re slowly sinking down
Look at him he’s got it figured out
You’ll never get there sinking in self doubt
Think it out
Self doubt
Gather all the pieces of your pathetic life
Get up on your feet and demand him to fight
Sew me back together again
Track Name: Gen X
What makes you so sure that you’re the one who’s right
What if you’re the one who’s wrong and is living a lie
This is not a rebuke
This is not hate speech
I’m not calling you a liar I’m not saying you can’t be right
All I’m saying is that just maybe the other guy’s got it air tight
