Track Name: War
Verse 1
I won’t be a number, even if it’s one
I won’t lead your horde of whores into the sun.

I’m no machine,
You’ll never get consent from me
To rape my love, rape my love.

Pre-chorus
And all you want is more and more
But your freedom is my War

Chorus
You would end it all
Give us up to the enemy
Obliterate our everything
War!
You would end it all
What you’re offering, my suffering
Obliterate me.

Verse 2
Traded for trash,
For so little, little happy harlot.
Weep for me, when my love is lost to you.
Cause I will escape, I will escape.
PRE-CHORUS
CHORUS

Bridge
And you
Love is not a cage to keep me in,
Love is not the monster you’ve become.
Love is not a cage to keep me in,
Love is not the monster you’ve become.

CHORUS
Obliterate me x 4
Track Name: Kharma
Verse1
Unaware, you sit in,
This sphere that you can’t escape,
This place reflecting your fate,
In what is in your hand.
Wrapped in you, in your head,
Thought for your thoughtlessness,
Thought for my innocence,
This mirror mirrors your soul.

Chorus
Kharma can see,
The knife in your hand,
Kharma knows you,
Everything that‘s in your head.
Kharma can see,
The knife in your hand,
Kharma knows you hold,
The knife in my back.

Verse 2
Unaware, who to blame,
For burning what I possessed,
Burning your promises,
Will bend back what you bled from me.
Meet my avenger.

CHORUS

Bridge
I cry, my pity for you.
And I, I see you slide, by, falling further, falling, inside.

Outro
Kharma sees you,
Kharma watches you,
Everywhere,
And everything you do.
Kharma sees you,
Kharma watches you,
Share with me,
The scars that I bare, now too.
The scars that I bare,
Share with me, now too.
Track Name: Suicidal Butterfly
Verse 1
Picket fences hold no glory,
No history pages,
Oblivious to a gentle stranger,
Punish me tyranny.

And I’m waiting,
To asphyxiate my heart,
No escaping,
From my self-sabotage.


Pre-chous
Fly, Into wonderland,
Take me high,
Ruby rivered carpet ride.

Chorus
Suicidal Butterfly
Suffocate, Suffocating,
Suicidal Butterfly
Suffocate, Suffocating.

Verse 2
Deadly dreams confined in limbo,
Ideals that swallow me,
And I’m frightened,
To hand this noose to you,
Uninvited, will you hold me tight?

Pre-chorus 2
And I’ll fly, over wonderland,
So high,
Ruby Rivered carpet ride.

CHORUS

Delicate, butterfly
Asphyxiating.
Ruby rivered butterfly.
Track Name: Anti-Valentine
(Squeeze the trigger)

Verse1
Your anger breeds itself again, and again,
Again, again, again.
I’m just a disposable domino,
So shoot me down.
Squeeze the trigger honey,
Tighter, tight, tight, bang.
Release.

CHORUS
I’m already dead to you,
You keep killing me, bleeding me more,
Already dead to you,
Be my, Anti-Valentine.

Verse 2
Dig me a grave I can’t escape,
Dig deeper, deep, deep, deeper.
Fill me with your bullets, of apathy,
Every time you shoot me down!

CHORUS

Bridge
Forgive, too easily,
I forgive, you too much.
I forget your selfishness,
Again, again, again and again.
I forget your selfishness,
Again, again, again,
I let you forget, I let you forget!

Anti-Valentine I’ll be yours always,
As long as you keep me in my grave,
Anti-Valentine I’ll be yours always,
As long as you keep me alive,
But I want to die!

Squeeze the trigger,
Squeeze the trigger honey,
Squeeze the trigger,
Squeeze the trigger honey,
Squeeze the trigger,
Squeeze the trigger honey,
Squeeze the trigger,
Tighter, tight, tight,
Squeeze the trigger!

Chorus
Kharma can see,
The knife in your hand,
Kharma knows you,
Everything that‘s in your head.
Kharma can see,
The knife in your hand,
Kharma knows you hold,
The knife in my back.

Verse 2

Kharma sees you,
Kharma watches you,

The scars that I bare, now too.
The scars that I bare,
Share with me, now too.
