Track Name: Tangled Tongues
Jittered
Jagged
Jaded
Thoughts I can't control
With a
Racing
Ripping
Rabid rage
Packed in a rabbit's hole
Scratching
Scraping
Screaming
Dark and dampened shouts
I can see the light
But I can't squeeze my way out

Lay in the shadows with my doubts

To think
How I waved good bye
The things keeping me alive
As I hopped inside

I guess I never realized
The younger me had seen the end of his brighter days
Tell him that I'm alright
Tell him that we're the same in so many different ways

The one way out is through my mouth
Where tangled tongues can't be without
When ears of smoke make blackened rooms
Then all of your thoughts start choking too
I wonder ways and wish them through
Your better days are up to you
It's up to you

It's alright
I'm alright

The long lengthy leads that last
Take fast tracks back to our past
With a wilting wonder of
What one will overcome
When one's younger days are done
Track Name: Rusting on your Laurels
I've rusted through to the bottom
Corroded and smug
Try to shake the
Bugs from their rugs
A dark and dusty task

If I could squeeze a little between the ears
Because I could a little alleviation
When it comes to self-preservation
Can't I?

Ambition equally stubborn
The trophies I've won
Are weighing on me
Keep pushing on
Or be buried in the past

I just need a little ink on the gears
Because I could use a little sleep deprivation
When it comes to self motivation
Can't I?

I know I can
I trust my hands
I know I can

I know I can
I know that complacency
I know I can
Is a vast echoed vacancy

I
know
I
can
