Track Name: What Must Come of Us
It goes without saying the human race is evolving
But many still live by old books that forbid us
From same rights as people we're told are not equal
We can evolve but the system keeps evil

You've got your morals and you've got your rites, you’ve also
Got your failed attempts cos, man, I've seen the light
Some limit themselves with their own parallels, that's fine, but
Many don't stop there and you can't tell me that's fair

Was it something I said?
Maybe we can pretend
Was it something I said?

The thoughts and consequence of damaging hooks
Somehow they end in the places avoided by books
And I'm not saying that we were meant to be angels
But now I find myself here asking:
What must come of us?

How far can we come yet to still be controlled oh by the
By the fear of a god; the great fear of unknown
They've probably cut me down if they had the chance
But by the power vested in me
They've got no likely chance

Was it something I said?
Maybe we can pretend
Was it something I said?

The thoughts and consequence of damaging hooks
Somehow they end in the places avoided by books
And I'm not saying that we were meant to be angels
But now I find myself here asking:
What must come of us?
Track Name: Set For LIfe
Got a feeling
Shouldn’t be swinging off the ceiling
But it’s hard when you know the freedom of open spaces and non-policed places
Wanna take a trip
Right around this island and deep in the sticks
Take a few lures and go for a flick
People are freaks and I admit, I’m just another hypocrite

Don’t wanna wait till the sails go by
But maybe sit till the sun sets for life
From off the coast line down off the bay
To Loyalty Beach, man, I’ll be set for life
Don’t wanna wait till the sails go by
But maybe sit till the sun sets for life
From off the coast line down off the bay
To Loyalty Beach, man, I’ll be set for life

Catch my breath
I’ll keep this view with me until my death
Like finger prints they’re part of me I can’t forget
I need to find more as much as I can get
And I’ll be set
So I sit on my chair
And wonder what time has changed up there
And wonder what stories have gone unheard
Got a few of my own and some more to come
Some reasons why I quit rum

Don’t wanna wait till the sails go by
But maybe sit till the sun sets for life
From off the coast line down off the bay
To Loyalty Beach, man, I’ll be set for life

Don’t wanna wait till the sails go by
But maybe sit till the sun sets for life
From off the coast line down off the bay
To Loyalty Beach, man, I’ll be set for life
Track Name: Chemical Haze
In this chemical haze
We walk in separate ways
I can see what's peeling
They're bleeding

Take a walk in a dirty bar
Don't know where we are
It's alright, it's alright
I can feel my fingers tonight

Mindless wonders
Intensity thunders
Hey, hey
This is my papier mâché

Sitting under the stars
Forgetting how simple we are
And the price we pay is
Too much of the same

Feels like this forever
Pull my strings and take all of my silver
Feels like this forever

She turns like a soul-burning liar
And fires like a finger I fire
But it works the wheels
It works the wheels

Feels like this forever
Pull my strings and take all of my silver
Feels like this forever

Hey, hey
This is my papier mâché
Track Name: Small Disguise
I like days where the nights don't end
Old pubs and one night stands
And those days, we never had no plan
It all seemed much happier then

Don't close your eyes
You might miss this small disguise
Don't close your eyes
This night needs alibis

She comes, and then she goes
And I smile but she don't know
Two sides to every story
But mine’s better 'cos a lie don't bore me

Don't close your eyes
You might miss this small disguise
Don't close your eyes
This night needs alibis
Those days were in disguise
These days have realised
Had more than meets the eye
Backroads of paradise
How quick did all those times turn one old night to one good ride?
Hade more than meets the eye
Another small disguise

These days, the nights do end
Old pubs are still my friends
Looking at those days gone by
Count your stars if you haven't died

Don't close your eyes
You might miss this small disguise
Don't close your eyes
This night needs alibis

Those days were in disguise
These days have realised
Had more than meets the eye
Backroads of paradise
How quick did all those times turn one old night to one good ride?
Hade more than meets the eye
Another small disguise
Track Name: Villain Side
They say your dark side
Has got quite a smile
When you're a lesson,
Why hide your style?

Heyyyey, what you need you've got for free
Heyyyey, it’s no tragedy
Let me see your villain side
Pace is gone but your face is real
Coloured eyes for a clearer feel
Help me build my civil side
Let me see your villain side

Let me see your villain side

I'm catching glimpses, of your shady wishes
You've left your imprint, on your victim’s business
Heyyyey, what you need you've got for free
Heyyyey, God save the Queen

Let me see your villain side
Pace is gone but your face is real
Coloured eyes for a clearer feel
Help me build my civil side
Let me see your villain side
Let me see your villain side
