Track Name: BEHOLDEN
Held down, heavy weight
Profound in great debate
Look around with minds enslaved
Some shrill sound, deprived and depraved

I was confused, but now I'm older
Learned from some symposium
Head down, and chip on my shoulder
Dreamt my way, my way out of boredom
Become The Man you want more of

Woah I'm beholden
I am beholden
Woah I'm beholden

Benediction, always
Looking bright and better days
Got to be broke, to be fixin'
Running wild, without restriction
And I was confused, but now I'm older
Learning from some, some symposium
Head down, chip on my shoulder
Dreamt my way out of boredom
Became The Man you want more of

Dreamt my way
My way out of boredom
Became a man
The man you want more of x2
Buildings built on buildings.
Pavement built on on pain
The wind sang some sweet song
Lament in the refrain

There's no flavour in the facts
we get our kicks from fiction
Some belaboured sense of tact
Some hierarchy of diction

Alleyways backlanes sidewalks
Can't seem to find my way home
Can't seem to find the right block
Under the sirens and the horns

Got a whole lot of love
Whole lot of love
Freedom ain't enough
Use me up
Use me up

Curb cuts. Health care too
Golden means. Gold Truths
Modern love. Some sick ruse.
Rottened up. Ain't hot enough for you.

We're living through simple
Metaphysical rituals
The animal the soul goes wild
Together we heal
The better we feel
To celebrate real and smile
Track Name: LION CITY
Paid for the paper
Hand me a pen
I'll be writing home now
Heaven sent
Whoa someone found me
And I need not repent
Arise with the tide
See the see like I meant

Grew up in lion city
Grew old under your wing
Biting the hand that fed me
Tracing scars
I'm on the brink

Oh pains of youth and grains of truth
Fortune, forfeits, it's all for you
Through force of hand I understand
And as a man I comprehend
Yeah as a man I comprehend
Yet somehow never took a stand
I just followed like a sheep
But damn these waters run so deep
In the kitchen, cut and cook
On a mission, deeper looks
At the piano, sweeter hooks
Ain't no such thing as half way crooks
Track Name: ALL FOR YOU
We were a good thing
Maybe subtle underused
I wanted the real thing
I was not confused
Ready and willing
To forgo the truce
Able and giving
If you became my muse

To tell you the truth
I got used to feeling used
To make you feel brand new

Thunder fervent
Blundered service
Don't get it misconstrued
Trauma and drama
Bottomless saga
Heavy on throttle
A power abused

Strength grace and wit
Order from within
More warm than cold
Some young old souls
In a world thats getting small
Humbled, still, adorned
In my mind i was reborn
In your eyes i saw the scorn
