The timid voice shrill and breathless

hesitant, unless to wake the beasts that hide in

the dark corners

Mother saviour, don’t forsake

Intro - 4 bars

Verse *Artefacts - Teeth, hair and nails

Locked away in a lovers box of secrets

To build a dam

To wall in the tides, of languid and wallowing sorrow.

Inst.

Pre chorus* A mask of fragments

Held by spittle, blood and denial

A greater memory to shine through

And obscure the truth of the hate

All, once knew.

Chorus* And bound in wax

Craven image was formed

All that befell, is ignored

Denied,

Hidden beneath

a crooked smile

of broken teeth, hair and nails


Verse 2 *Mucus smeared, to stave off the smell

Hollow eyes frame a broken smile

Memory, artificial lines to hide the tale

A crooked smile, a secret vale.

Inst.

Pre chorus* A mask of fragments

Held by spittle, blood and denial

A greater, memory to shine through

And obscure the truth of the hate

All, once knew.

Chorus* And bound in wax

Craven image was formed

All that befell is ignored

Denied,

Hidden beneath

a crooked smile

of broken teeth, hair and nails

Breakdown- Outro (no vox)
Track Name: Solace
Solace
Disaffect, cut the ties
Verse 1. Broken bonds, would bind hands tight,
to innate tasks, bend to your labours.
Blood bonds, dilute - dilute!
Depress post natal instinct - renounce this burden.
Chorus a. Cognitively in-debt progeny by callous, resentment
Oh callow youth, how a shadow of misconception has,
cast upon the child, cast upon the child.
Verse 2. Broke the bonds. To trust, in open arms.
Expectant eyes, demand warmth, Oh wouldst thou be the saviour!
(stabs) Lost to a sea, uncertainty haunts development
Definition lacks direction, without example.
Chorus (main) Intimacy, substitute, for comfort. Come together in the waves at dawn.
Beat Down. Identify - experimentation in lifestyle.
Chorus.
Bridge. Promiscuity defines not, left unfulfilled X2.
Left unfulfilled X4

Track Name: Companionship At A Cost
Companionship at a cost.

Verse 1 Repression, subjectivity, dictates which side of the line, decency lies.
Most precious gift, sanctity, part of the self.
HELD BACK, HELD BACK, wither the flower, desecrate.

Chorus. With certainty, have not, the stomach nor the mind, to condone this choice.
Profession - disassociate and compromise, self respect.

Verse 2 A bleak path, unhappy circumstance, the hardest of times.
LEADS INTO, unsavoury circles.
Compliance, of youth, an easy target.
Stripped of, innocence - the vultures gilded tongue.

Break - Full of promise, FULL OF HOPE.

Chorus 2. (as 1st)

Bridge. - She’s just a child! X4

Beat Down. Disassociate and compromise, YOUR SELF RESPECT.

Chorus 3 With certainty, have not, the stomach nor the mind, to condone this choice.
Profession X 3

Disassociate and compromise, Disassociate and compromise,
and compromise X3
