Track Name: Two-Way Mirror
I've underrated the irreversible
I was prolonging the inevitable

I wish I could
Take comfort in
The irony

If only I
Could defy the laws
Of gravity

Save me from the water in my lungs
Save me from the fire in my gut

I’m the sole-creator
Of every path that I have ever taken
I’m peering through the two-way mirror
I’m switching off the lights
I’ve opened the door of abomination

There is no escape, just a simulation
How could I refuse such a proposition?

A vagabond
Invites me
To call a truce
My attention drifts
To CCTV
In a cell-like room

I’m the sole-creator
Of every path that I have ever taken
Pressed against the two-way mirror
I’m switching off the lights
I’ve opened the door of abomination

Save me from the water in my lungs
Save me from the fire in my gut
Track Name: Fish Bowl
I've mostly watched these years go by through a windshield
But everyone drives a little closer to the curb around here

I'm a mistake, an 'affair baby'
I match my surroundings
Always searching for foreign bodies
But I only find sin

There's no dirt under our nails
From a distance we look the same

Except nothing chains me
I can't stay here

I've boldly walked beside the road to recovery
But everyone claims to hate this town, no-one ever leaves

With cowards and hypocrites
This world's overcrowded
And I've grown like a lonely goldfish
I match my surroundings

There's no answers in the braille
In the darkness we look the same

Except nothing chains me
I can’t stay here
Nothing chains me
You chose to stay here
In this fish bowl
