Track Name: A Worker's Perspective
You were a laborer,
Hardworking, undeterred.
And I respected you.
But you were manipulated,
and your traits you used to something out of nothing
were replaced with ideas
of breaking what was already broken.

Then there was that hill:
A demanding climb to the top.
But from that point,
the valley lit up perfectly when the sun went down.
So you climbed,
and the sun got the best of you.
You had to find,
what is really worth living for.
Track Name: I Was Found
I saw your face on a milk carton this morning,
and I knew exactly where you were.
You were a hideaway when I needed a place to escape.

When you were lost, I was found.
Track Name: Companion
we were meant for better days,
like the glue sticking the back of the book to the page.
Tear it off and see what's behind it.
A whole new story waiting to be found.
Maybe being lost serves purpose
in finding ourselves.

Sift past the hay,
Breathe in the dust,
Exhale to pray.

Now think in multiples of three,
scaling walls and sailing oceans
just for the second,
just for one second.

A place so abandoned,
yet enough for our vault.
Those hidden secrets
locked behind those eyes
that we see, but only dream.
Track Name: Nostalgia
This introspective was not at all planned.
But neither was your news
that brought back the old times.
Those days were filled with questions,
which led to new definitions.
Who knew I was a hypochondriac
with a failing kidney?

My nerves were an electric fence,
and you couldn't stay away.
I never realized I invited you.
