Track Name: Spark feat. Ron Oxley
A spark hit the night shade as he was chasing his dreams
Calm and unafraid he cast his fears to the sun
Breaking up the heat that was pouring down rain
Skeletons bow at his feet giving power to his reign
Searching for treasure beneath the soil
Not finding any reward for his unwavering toil
He turns to sleep and uncontrolled gluttony
Forgetting his past life of peace and tranquility
A shadow cast as the perfect sight dilates to the darkest of night
We lose the details of the slave as his master goes to the conclave
Facial features will disappear as the beast grows older in years
And as the proud grow in their fame the humble men start to fade away
Begging for a pardon for the cage he built around himself
Breaking the grip of his chain he finds freedom from the sane
He wears his name confidently on his chest proclaiming to everyone his cleanliness
Unashamed of who he is and what he’s done but too ashamed to be intimidating to anyone
Track Name: Erik feat. Paul Shaffer
This town’s scene portrays a bad memory like a cheap horror movie
This isn’t Family
This Isn’t Community
We play our songs for a crowd that cares more about their phones than the music we have to share
Two faced lying pieces of work
That like to critique our hard work
Come on chew us up and spit us on the floor
You’ll find our taste to be unsaturated and quite a bore
Dictate every song we sing
Every note every melody
You eat the rarest of meat only for its popularity
We’re all fakes if you look at it this way
I can say that without my ego getting in the way
