Track Name: I.A.T.L
Barely alive and left for dead, she ground her bones until they bled

Guilt of your words just too hard to swallow
Choked on everything but your way out
You cannot pretend to play the victim
Build me up to break me down

Train of your thought just too hard to follow
You broke down everything but your own walls
You cannot pretend to pull your punches
Pull me in to knock me out

So with a last cigarette and a blindfold
She bid fake friends a fair-weathered farewell
Slipped further away to the grey hell
Once more, in to the breach again
The faint threat of death just a whisper
But god knows that I'd kill just to kiss her
So when the truth all comes out with the dirt in your mouth
I see you've buried yourself alive

So burn down,
Burn down the house where I stand
Another matchstick from your mouth baby
Now light up the next man

It's not a noble lie to try and save my life
When there's no room left for less than perfect sympathy tonight.

Give or take her lives at stake
Wandering blind and built to break
Eye for an eye the whole world dies
Hung out to dry and bastardized
Eye for an eye the whole world dies
Give or take her lives at stake
Wandering blind and built to break
Give or take her lives at stake
Wandering blind and built to break

The curtains starting to close
On the bones that she called home
The curtains starting to close
On the bones that she called home

So with a last cigarette and a blindfold
She bid fake friends a fair-weathered farewell
Slipped further away to the grey hell
Once more, in to the breach again
The faint threat of death just a whisper
But god knows that I'd kill just to kiss her
When the truth all comes out with the dirt in her mouth
I see she's buried herself alive

She turned down,
Turned down the fire first hand
Another testament to her ignorance
She's hanging a dead man

It's not a noble lie to try and save her life
When there's no room left for less than perfect sympathy tonight

Give or take her lives at stake
Wandering blind and built to break
Eye for an eye the whole world dies
Hung out to dry and bastardized
Eye for an eye the whole world lies
Give or take her lives at stake
Wandering blind and built to break
Give or take her lives at stake
Wandering blind and built to break

The curtains starting to close
On the bones that she called home
The curtains starting to close
On the bones that she called home
Track Name: Who The Fuck Is Nigel Spice
You'll never know that there's more than meets the eye
I'm so inviting, approachable
Crooked teeth in the mouth of a hollywood smile
Just an essence, Illusory
A gift tainted and bittersweet
Misanthropically beautiful
Justification is what I need
To utilise what lies underneath

But all of the proud men, were never saints
And all of the great men, showed no restraint

So I am a liar, I am a thief
But I'll always land straight on my feet
And I'm no messiah, branded a cheat
But I'll always land straight on my feet

the gloves are off

I'll do what it takes to get what I want, when I need it
I'll do what I feel, to feel good, when I feel it
I'll take what I please, to please myself, when I please it
I'll make the best I can, from what I've got, what I've got

Quietly masterful
Undetected, glazed eyes
Cold blood
A new mask,
A new disguise
Take it back

Do all of the proud men, accept their fate?
Do all of the great men, shoulder the blame?

So I'll play a liar, I'll play a thief
And I'll always land straight on my feet
There'll be messiahs, and there'll be cheats
But I'll always land straight on my feet.

And I'll be a liar, I'll be a thief
Until I no longer land straight on my feet.

Die Hard or try harder
Remain blank or get smarter
Sit back or get started
Live a life; die a martyr

You never needed a sign
You just needed to find a pulse anywhere you could
A point to resonate deep in my blood my love

You never gave it a thought
Never thought to improve or make moves
Progress not make do, impress and pull through
To get you where you want

As we walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I take a look at your life and realise it's fucking bereft
Fear no evil put pride in your stride
You'll be a self made man where lesser men died
And keep your mind on your money your money on your mind
Keep your head held high or you get held behind
As you wake up feeling another year older
You've got to find better ways to keep yourselves golden

And oh my god
What have we learned?
You're still too late
This world has turned

And oh my god
No time to sleep
There's promises
I have to keep

You never needed to lie
You just needed the strength to push past all your bad luck
Break through with all the force you could my love

You never needed a chance
A chance to prove yourself right to prove you can fight
To spark then ignite, burn brighter than you ever burned before

As we walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I take a look at your life and realise it's fucking bereft
Fear no evil put pride in your stride
You'll be a self made man where lesser men died
And keep your mind on your money your money on your mind
Keep your head held high or you get held behind
As you wake up feeling another year older
You'd better find better ways to keep yourselves golden

And oh my god
What have we learned?
You're not too late
This world has turned

And oh my god
No time to sleep
There's promises
I have to keep

Die hard or try harder
Remain blank or get smarter
Sit back or get started
Live a life; die a martyr
