Track Name: Holes
Mother face him down
How old would he be now?
Mom will we all go?
Get him out that hole

Not today

Old man, he suggests
they all live in my chest
but Ma he don't know
I saw where they go

Far away...... dirt.
Track Name: Prodigal Son
Back to my mother
Back to my father
They said they don't mind

Been chewed and spit out there
Stepped on and stuck under

behind teeth of denial

Call my name Innocence
you're not dead
it's just me

Say what needs to be said

An open line
can either breed or disturb
a shady town
It's selfish need to own Earth

Let him finish saying what he believes in
then wait
Nothing's worse than contradicting
whatever he says

He has his right
Remember he has a turn
A life turned down
He speaks of what he has learned
Track Name: Time To Confess
Heavy guilty conscience
you think you can hide it
it can be your secret
but you are not alone

Hiding it is nonsense
you'll become a regret
Sinful weak and lonely
a villain to your bones

Well I have news
I'm breaking shell
I want the world
to know something else
I think you see
I want to mend
the past and breathe in peace
if I..
