Track Name: Skin Suit
You're part of my skin suit
I'm part of your skin suit

Partly brave and partly good
Fought what I partly understood

That's part of the problem

Partial to the party line
Went with the tide, I partly lied

And yes, I took what wasn't mine
To make room of my own

That's part of the problem
Track Name: Soft Spine
Windows to other cubicles
So we don't feel so contained
Water cooler gossip
Pressure valve for stockholm syndrome

I know my place but soft spines disgust me
Fit through tight spots rodent like, they stand for nothing
So I stubbornly retain a taste for truth and common sense
Spiralling downward mobility

I will sink your fucking ship
Track Name: Moth Possessed
The white hot burn empowered me
Lit a path through darkness
Cheeks red with life
Blood hot, eyes wild

Salt the earth behind
Nothing grows but my pride
Trapped with my truth
Dropped in time like an anchor

The white hot burn altered me
Sedated myself but through the fog it came
Do bridges burn clean healing smoke
Or will I choke thick air on a lost island?

Anger is
An instinctual aversion
To the sharp side
Of injustice
Constant anger is the state
Of those unable to escape
Without it they have nothing

The white hot burn is a curse
Eyes eclipsed, retinas burned
Moth possessed by fear of lack of heat and light
I need the white hot burn
I deserve the white hot burn
