Track Name: Past Mistakes
Past mistakes
VERSE I
Hold your breath over the bridge
Lift your feet over the tracks, make a wish were never coming back
We walk the line we define
Or take the path laid out before us
That’s the way the cookie crumbles
Cut your way through the weeds
The bamboo cuts and cutting bleeds
Don't let it bleed you dry
With my back against the wall

CHORUS
From cradle to the grave these are the words we say
Don't forget their names
From cradle to the grave we all want to saved
No one wants to be forgotten

VERSE II
Hold your breath over the bridge
Lift your feet over the tracks, make a wish were never coming back
Hide the knives for the sake of all our lives
Manmade machines That’s the way the cookie crumbles
Manufactured dreams things are never what they seem
With my back against the wall

OUTRO
Our depression becomes depressive
When our possessions become possessive
Our needs become excessive
When possession becomes obsession
Our depression becomes depressive
When our possessions become possessive
Our needs become excessive
Burn it to the ground

Keep your head up high
They can't keep you down for long
Fire walk with me forever
March through the night and stay strong
Fire walk with me forever
Losing the battle winning the war
Losing the battle winning the war
Track Name: 1969
1969

VERSE I
Courage skips a generation
I am the void
Reaching clawing wishing
Hoping that I was more

CHORUS I
Destroy destroyer
Sow the seeds of horror
Destroy destroyer
Agent Orange foliage napalm fire

VERSE II
33 years of chasing a dream
In seconds you were gone
Left with a heavy heart
And no one to turn

CHORUS II
1969 such turbulent times
As a boy becomes a man
Combat boots and gun in hand

OUTRO
We sold our souls we sold ourselves short
The cost of living a price we can’t afford
Freedom is never innocent
When there is nothing left to say
But were so far removed from it
It was the price we had to pay
Track Name: Choke(a.k.a. Bully For You)
Choke aka bully for you

VERSE I
You shouldn't have to hide
Who you are is not a crime
I gave two shits today
One short of a fuck I gave away

PRE-CHORUS
Beat me down and call me a faggot
Because, just because I'm different
Beat me down and call me worthless
Cause you don't get it
CHORUS
It's not ok and it won't just go away
Your wrong if you don't think anything is wrong

VERSE II
Tears and remorse cut short
She lifted the veil
Feeling hopeless lost and lonely
It helps to know you are not the only one

PRE-CHORUS
Beat me down and call me a faggot
Because, just because I'm different
Beat me down and call me worthless
Cause you don't get it
CHORUS
It's not ok and it won't just go away
Your wrong if you don't think anything is wrong
