Track Name: Staying High
When did I travel down a road with twists and heavy bends
To be living in a box with not so many friends
Chirping like a bird with a broken neck
Haven't gone anywhere since I fell from the nest

I guess I'll take my exit for a while
Head first swimming in denial
My best is not my best
This is not a lie,
I'm staying high

There's no convincing me,
I know where I'll be staying

They say, if they speak they say sit, settle down
A healthy imagination doesn't need to question why
How those fortune tellers tend to lie

That's what happens when you try and change
Ideas go unnoticed and quickly contained
Track Name: Jekyll and Hyde
I was your whole world
Half the time
If there was a moment
You could find

Bottle of elixir on the floor
Please sit down,
You're not yourself anymore
Soon you'll find
Jekyll and Hyde

And I've seen the devil
Straight through your door
He comes in many forms
He came in yours

Bottlle of elixir on the floor
These are things you try
But don't ignore
Shit, at least you tried
Jekyll and Hyde
