Track Name: Misoneist
Trying to be someone you're not
Won't fill the need to belong
Believe me I know
It's messed up how people will judge
Those who don't slot neatly
Into their idea of normality
It's messed up how people will judge
A person for how they look
What they like and who they love

Trying to be someone you're not
Won't fill the need to belong
Believe me I know

We all feel, think and breathe
Shared traits some choose not to see
An irrational fear of change

Feel, think, breathe

Humans evolved to work together
We only choose to break each other apart
I can't change the world or the people in it
But i can try to give all the love i can
I can't change the world or the people in it
But I can try to live with an open mind
Track Name: Sentience
Life didn't come as advertised
Anti depressant prescriptions
And substance addictions
To numb the affliction
Of an empty modern day existence

Faced with the meaningless of our own sentience
And the realization that life
Is innately bereft of purpose
It's understandable
What some would turn to
Religion, wealth, drugs and power
Key distractions from reality

Most minds reject the finite span of mortality
Seeking validation through other means
Track Name: Smoke
It took years to see through a mans deceit
Every day faced with falsification
I was blinded by a will for acceptance
I never meant for my life to be filled
With dishonesty

To be in demand was a means of validation

In a moment of clarity
It was clear for me to see
You take and you take and I wait to receive
I understand now, I'm not what you need

The pursuit of understanding my own existence
Has led me to a sense of delusion
Displays of greed and hypocrisy
Plague me
In an unforeseen and unassuming lifestyle

I'm a victim of my own misjudgement

In a moment of clarity
It was clear for me to see
You take and you take and i wait to receive
I understand now, I'm not what you need

In a moment of clarity
It was clear for me to see
Who was there for the sake of them
Who was there for the sake of me

Knowing now that i can focus on what
Matters the most to me
Show them the person I want them to see
Show them that person I want to be
