Untitled (Possible Title: Heart of Men)

Verse 1
Unscrambled thoughts
Consuming beliefs
Get down on your knees
Obey your master
Get your reward when you transition
Go forth and spread the message across the land
Advisement certainly comes at a cost
Funds collected will aid in your righteousness
Your body, a temple worthy of care
Your body, a vessel for truth or despair

Verse 2
Underestimation of intelligence
Wanting to learn new things
Analyzing traditional methods
Shaking foundations
They say that youth is wasted on the young
Intoxicated by rhetoric
Elevation of words
Robotic mindset, militant stance
Unwavering appeal
Why don't you see the world like we do?

Verse 3
In public spaces, people are afraid of originality
They criticize what they don't understand
Differences are rejected
Insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly
And expecting different results
Have your judgements
They are contingent on modern attitudes
Social movements gain popularity with the passage of time
Which side of history do you want to be on?

Chorus
Stories we've come to know
Since time began
So grand, so legendary
Many take a stand
Free-form thinking clashes with preservationism
Ongoing research and intense debate
Reveal the desires and drives of men

Untitled (Possible Title: Unbearable)

Verse 1
You don't know what I want
You don't know what I need
You think you do
You don't know how I feel
You don't know how I live
You think you do
You don't know what my goals are
You don't know what I aspire to be
You think you do
You don't know what I think
You don't know what's important to me
You think you do

Verse 2
Erasing you from my mind is what I'd like to do
Sometimes forgetfulness is good
The damage you have caused
Has affected me to the core
I'm not as whole as I'd like to be
Mental progression has slowed itself down
But I'm determined to have a new state of mind

Bridge
Confusion collides with hate
Psychological pain is all that remains
Efforts to correct the situation
Could take upwards of a lifetime
We all twist and turn
Many become unable to learn from their circumstances
They say "The past is the past"
Even though it molds our future

Chorus
It's unfortunate to be the object of your attention
There's a sickness in you
Even if you disagree with that
Bombs go off wherever you are
I don't want to be a casualty of your emotionalism
Life is difficult to navigate
With you in it, it's unbearable

Little Barrie

Verse 1
You're growing a bit bigger
But not big enough
To cause me to rush into your domain
I see where you're at
But I don't know for sure
If that's the place where I want to be
Soon enough I'll have to decide
On what I want my future to be
I can't let indecisiveness get the best of me
I know that there are no guarantees
And that's the way it's supposed to be
Leaps of faith can change one's life for the better
I shouldn't discount the power of timing

Verse 2
Sometimes I feel like I am drowning
And when I try to come up for air
I sink a little deeper into my mind
Where thoughts run rampant
And chaos is the norm
It's perpetually in a mental storm
But with your help, I may have a chance
To finally breakaway free
And become the person I've longed to be
For many years it was just a dream
Now it's a possibility

Bridge
Miles of land separate us
A common goal could unite us
If I were made of bricks
I'd stand firm on my own
But I'm just a man looking for a place to call home

Chorus 1
Little Barrie
With your minimal strength
And your small size
In the centre of confusion
What can you do for me
That I can't do on my own?
Where will you take me
That I haven't been before?
I've heard some things about you
That I'm not quite sure are true
You could be what I need
So I'll take a chance on you

Chorus 2
Little Barrie
With your minimal strength
And your small size
In the centre of confusion
I've heard some things about you
That I'm not quite sure are true
You could be what I need
So I'll take a chance on you
And if I become very attached
I could fall in love with you

This Is Love, This Is Murderous

Verse 1
This is love, this is murderous
The best thing that could ever happen
At the worst possible time
This is pure and genuine
Conquering anything, forsaking others
While regret begins to grow
Hearts and souls uniting
In a world divided by hate

Verse 2
This is love, this is murderous
Sweet sensations colliding with the bitter aftermath
All involved will sustain injuries
This is a blessing from on high
This is a curse from way down below
Good versus evil takes centre stage
Minds and spirits uniting
In a world divided by fear

Bridge
Trading in every possession
For a lifetime filled with happiness
Is worth far more than silver and gold
This is whole and never-ending
Patching up all the broken pieces
Only to have them scattered around

Chorus 1
This is love, this is murderous
Unpredictability
Sunshine and blue skies
On a perfect summer day
This is love, this is murderous
Volatility
Riding on highs and sinking on lows
On a horrible winter day
Reality overpowers fantasy
This is love, this is murderous

Chorus 2
This is love, this is murderous
Unpredictability
This is love, this murderous
Volatility
This is love, this is murderous
Set me free, lock me up
This is love, this is murderous

I Will Bear Witness

Verse 1
If I'm despondent
Then I will know
That I should become involved in my life
Staring blankly into space
Will not get me to a better place
Action is stronger than will
When I'm indifferent to my well-being
Self-love will be my number one priority
Not wanting to wake up
Each time I go to sleep
Will only make me become moodier
Negativity is destructive

Verse 2
If anger is building up inside of me
I will let it out creatively
Rage is a counter-productive force
Eventually it leads to remorse

Bridge
Affirmation is part of honesty
Bravery is confronting scarcity
Detachment yearns for a bond
Understanding eliminates confusion
Revelation seizes attention
Maturity equates to growth

Chorus 1
I was born with sight
But was blind to the essence of me
I will bear witness
To all things which form my identity

Chorus 2
I was born with sight
But was blind to reality around me
I will bear witness
To all things which form my identity

Chorus 3
Born with sight is being fortunate
A lack of vision leads to blindness
I will bear witness
To all things which form my identity

A Thousand Benjamins

Verse 1
For the first time, I love someone
I never thought it was possible
That person does not love me back
But I'm just fine with that
The only thing that bothers me
Is that he's with somebody else
I'm no longer the centre of his attention
I have become his former lover
I desperately want to be with him
Be close to him in every sense of the word

Verse 2
I deeply care about the man
Whom I fell for
I love him more than I love myself
He became my world, my home
The only part of him which I have are memories
Every little detail embedded within my heart, my mind

Bridge
Mmmmm, ooohhh, mmmmmm
Shy bordering on anti-social
Longing for conversation
Independent bordering on selfishness
Wanting a friend or two
Unrealistic views bordering on insanity
Needing to change my luck
Inaction bordering on indifference
Refusing to harm myself
Mmmmm, mmmmm

Chorus 1
Ecstatically happy, then depressingly sad
Joyful and disappointed
Delightfully surprised, then stunningly upset
Amazed and angry

Chorus 2
Genuinely optimistic, then distressingly apprehensive
Proud and confused
Wonderfully interested, then violently annoyed
Caring and insensitive
Optimistic, apprehensive - a thousand Benjamins, a thousand Benjamins
Interested, annoyed - a thousand Benjamins, a thousand Benjamins
Happy, sad - a thousand Benjamins, a thousand Benjamins
Amazed, angry - a thousand Benjamins, a thousand Benjamins

Brown

Verse 1
Brown is the colour of my skin
Soft and smooth from head to toe
Brown is rich and creamy
Full of life in its essence
It comes in a multitude of shades
Ranging from light to dark
No other colour comes close
To eclipsing its power
There's a hidden curiosity
It's frequently unspoken
But when discussion begins
Raised eyebrows and open mouths soon follow
Brown's lure is insatiable
It'll bring you to the point of no return

Verse 2
Brown are the colour of my eyes
Deep and mysterious
Brown is rich and golden
At the centre of attention
There's an ancient affirmation
It's appearance is youthful looking
Brown's lure is insatiable
You'll want to have every part of it
Once you gain experience
Things will never be the same

Chorus 1
Brown's capabilities are far-reaching and long lasting
Its richness is undeniable
Complex to the core
Brown's vibrancy shines right through
Its richness is captivating
Sensual to the core
Brown's vibrancy shines right through
I love brown, I love myself

Chorus 2
Brown's capabilities are far-reaching and long lasting
Its richness is undeniable
Complex to the core
Brown's vibrancy shines right through
Its richness is captivating
Sensual to the core
Brown's vibrancy shines right through
I love brown, I love myself
It encompasses pure beauty
I love brown more than anything else
Oh what a feeling

Many Thousands Gone

Verse 1
Her bluest eye is darker than tar
Once captivating, now sullen and cold
Long, golden hair is frizzled and burnt
Lips are cracked, body is dry and rough
She is dangerously shy
Coming back to herself will be no small feat
Lost doesn't even begin to describe her state of mind
Fixing what's broken seems to be impossible

Verse 2
His heart is colder than ice
Once full of warmth, now weak and shallow
Confidence morphed into arrogance
Disdain for others grows with each passing day
Their sentience no longer remains
It's the difference between living and being alive
These new times are nothing more than a shill for death
Years will seem to pass within seconds

Chorus 1
Identities are like hurricanes
When emotional roller coasters hit shore
They can be swept away
Truth is like a tornado
Sometimes unexpected but powerful
Many survive
Unfortunately, many thousands gone

Chorus 2
Life is like a glass of water
With complexities ranging from being half full
To being half empty
Truth is like a tornado
Sometimes unexpected but powerful
Many survive
Unfortunately, many thousands gone

Drowning Cupid

Verse 1
I don't need love
No no no no no
I do not need love
What it gave to me was deep sadness
I don't want kisses
No no no no no
I do not want kisses
It will lead to falling for someone
Just leave me to myself
Yes yes yes yes yes
Being alone is nothing new to me
They'll be no confessions of hearts skipping beats
And no places for lovers to meet
What I do won't be found out by anyone

Verse 2
I don't need love
No no no no no
I do not want to experience emotional turmoil again
I don't want sweet nothings
No no no no no
I do not want sweet nothings to be whispered into my ears
To each his own
Yes yes yes yes yes
That is what I believe
I refuse to live by any other standard
Souls uniting are just fantasies
Hoping that it'll happen makes you naive
I made a promise not to let myself down

Verse 3
My sense of self was manipulated
Who I tried to be
Was weaker than who I was
My self-respect shrivelled up like burning paper
Slowly I regained strength
I knew that battling forces beyond my control
Would be arduous and time consuming
Reclaiming what's left of me begins with drowning cupid
This will be my sweet victory

Chorus
I'm drowning cupid
He won't fly
He will no longer shout his harts at me
I'm drowning cupid
He'll be gone
Then I will have peace of mind
Drowning cupid is the only way for me to live

I Like Me!

Verse 1
I may not be perfect
I've made a few mistakes
I do have some regrets
But my life hasn't been a waste
Being as inquisitive as I am
Has been a good thing
Other times it's been bad
I'm a picky person
when it's time to make my mind up
I become indecisive

Verse 2
I'm not always nice
Not always honest
I don't have any friends
But I do have acquaintances
I'm a stutterer, a former nail-bitter
I'm a sinner, a former church attendant
I have aspirations but I procrastinate
Even though I've had crushes
Never been on a date

Verse 3
Sometimes I'm ungrateful
Other times I'm selfish
I focus more on what I want
Instead of appreciating what I have
When I'm angry, I can resort to revenge
I've thought of killing myself
But I chose to live my life

Chorus 1
With all my faults - I like me!
I'm the only person I want to be
With all my good qualities - I like me!
I won't change for anyone
Because I like me! I like me!

Chorus 2
With all my faults - I like me!
I'm the only person I want to be
With all my good qualities - I like me!
I won't change for anyone
Who I am is who I'll be
Because I like me! I like me!
