Track Name: The Stand-Off
This won't be the last stand
The stand-off began when I was 10, I didn't understand
No matter where you are, despite everything
No matter where you are, despite everything
It changed her life and I'm not sure for the best
But what does that mean and
at what expense do we hold onto ignorance?
What does that mean if the price is that we never risk?
Our lives are so wound up in our own minds
The meaning which we must find is
not found easily by keeping in life
We must find a way to break away, to stop out of line
It changed her life and I'm not sure for the best
But what does that mean and
at what expense do we hold onto ignorance?
It changed my life and I know for the best
Shattered complacency is something I lost
and I don't regret it
Track Name: Alone
A wise person once told me that we are always alone
even when there are people around...
You only have yourself
Change is something we all try to hide from
but eventually it always comes
Lack of or borrowed identity, fear of isolation...
You only have yourself
Maybe we have been thrown the book
Maybe we need to look at what really matters
Maybe we like being blind
Maybe we can't decide to fight for our minds
You ignore a muttering old lady
you see trodding down a dirty grey street
And maybe your feel a sick sensation
that she is someone you will someday be...
We only have oursleves
Track Name: To Kill A Penguin
Lord of the land, keeper of the gate
small time extorsionists and thugs from the state
Lord of the land, keeper of the gate
greedy motherfuckers with a grin on their face
Meet the new boss, same as the old
Meet the new god... a fucking piece of paper
Selfish motherfuckers, their need never denied
never went hungry a day in their lives
They understand the plight of the people
but in the eyes of the dollar not all are equal
Meet the new boss, same as the old
Meet the new god... a fucking piece of paper
Track Name: Purgatory
Asked a few questions
but couldn't accept the answers
of roles pre-defined, of choices to be made
I found out there are always consequences
for those who choose to live in vain
And now I find myself in purgatory
this world is a scary place
Made a few decisions
that could be deemed insane
Death awaits if you don't fall in line
The pieces of the puzzle never seem to fit
with thos chaos in my mind
What is truth?
What is freedom?
And now I find myself in purgatory
