Track Name: Mowgli
One more year til they take your youth
They’ll put you in a cage and feed you lies
Then they’ll bring you out to face the wolves
Into your head they’ll tell of an unobtainable prize

Slowly the serpent slithers in,
He tells you stories of the world
Tries to weave into your skin
But all you want is the girl

Mowgli, Mowgli, come to the woods
You’re not ready for the world
Mowgli, Mowgli, come to the woods
You’re not ready for that girl

Run to the woods to find the bear
Even though you ran he never ceased to care
Amazed at the overflowing grace
With happiness stamped on your face

Love seeps through your bones
Like a fire through my heart of stone
You’re more than just bones and skin
You’re a spark to my helpless soul within
Track Name: Lost In Thought
Forgive me when my head explodes
And all my thoughts are exposed
Would all my friends just turn away
If they saw the things I kept at bay?

How would it feel if they didn’t tie me down
If I was able to remove this burdened crown
Would I be free like the birds in the sky?
Damnit I love you and I don’t know why

Your face is burnt into my mind
Forever is a very long time
To be the one left behind
Forever is a very long time

I wish this shadow would leave me be
I’ll forever cast my thoughts to the sea
If only my brain wasn’t always churning
Rest and know that the world will keep turning

The voices come when the lights fade
I am lost in these thoughts I’ve made
I’m the artist of all my fears
My imagination tears me apart like a spear

Your face is burnt into my mind
Forever is a very long time
To be the one left behind
Forever is a very long time
Track Name: Weakness
My weaknesses began to show,
Your grip on me started to grow
You went unnoticed, started slow
Coated with honey, couldn’t say no

I break my promises again and again,
When I search your eyes all I see is pain
I’m the only one to blame
Can’t seem to rid myself of these stains

I’m fighting off my demons,
But I can’t let them go
I’m fighting off my demons,
But I won’t let you go

I became what I despised to be
I search for what is left of me
I find it down on its knees
I’m haunted by this rising sea

Despair is all I find in your eyes
Reach out and they just let me die
Try to stand but I’m paralysed
With the serpent I compromise
