Track Name: Sweet Remains
Between the two of us there's lots of common ground
Littered with broken trust, though other things were found
Between the two of us are ugly words and tears
Between the two of us we've got a lot of years

I think I loved you once, but everything has changed
Though as the anger dies, something sweet remains

Between the two of us we've suffered growing pains
We pointed fingers, we'd resort to blame
Between the two of us we had some wild times
We'd read the riot act, we'd read eachothers' minds

I think I loved you once, I think you felt the same
And as the anger dies, something sweet remains

Between the two of us we've drawn a lot of space
I take out photos to recall your face
Between the two of us there's still so much to say
I wonder if there'll ever come a day

I think I loved you once and some things never change
So as the anger dies, something sweet remains
Track Name: Big Bang
Shifting zones, switching phones, I'm a twitching drone
a voice without a body
Sixteen lines of modern times, are you satisfied?
Am I a big bang for the money?

Impressions made a picture frame could not contain
this voice without a body
But there was a time when I spoke in rhyme
while bathed in light and everybody saw me

Punch the clock, a rich man's stock goes up a notch
and I am doing right
I will learn how not to burn
I won't discern the darkness from the light
Mama says girl bow your head, the time for dreams
has long since come and gone
But there was a time when I sang in rhyme while bathed in light
and people sang along

fire can burn, but the cold just stops me, breaks me down
leaves me tired, leaves me shattered, leaves me empty

Eight to five, I must survive, times five times five
and I am doing right
lessons in suppression, i"m your soldier
and you will teach me not to fight
Uncle says 'girl, bow your head, dreams are things we sell that you can slave to buy'
but there was a time I spoke in rhyme while bathed in light
the thought now makes me cry

fire can burn, but the cold just stops me, breaks me down
leaves me tired, leaves me shattered, leaves me empty
Track Name: Baby Inside
We don’t have enough tears to satisfy your hunger
Our down ain’t far enough, to make you feel we’re under you
We don’t have enough fear to tremble at your thunder
And we’ve been around long enough to see right through you

You wear you anger like a precious hide
You're full of hatred, you're full of pride
You get your way by wielding guns and knives
But we all know you’re just a baby inside

You take your little ducks, you line them in a row
Then you shoot ‘em down again before you let their beauty grow
Cause mystery is meaningless, you’re all about control
Child watch me fly away, child watch your little birdie go

You wear you anger like a precious hide
You're full of hatred, you're full of pride
You get your way by wielding guns and knives
But we all know you’re just a baby inside

You can keep your spoils of war
You can wear your crown behind bolted doors
You can be the master of your game,
and you can play alone again and again and again

You wear you anger like a precious hide
You're full of hatred, you're full of pride
You get your way by wielding guns and knives
But we all know you’re just a baby inside

Heaven knows that you could fall
The more you scream the less you know
As a child you had a vision clear but the walls came up over the years
And darkly now you see, and darkly now you speak
