Track Name: Bloodlines
Bloodlines on your face
Bloodlines and race

Wrinkles on your forehead
Down on the ground
Zero tolerance

Through your skin

Crawling like a baby
Crying for love

Blood lines
The streets

Get under the sheets

A crowd of death shrouds

Modesty, mortality
Cover me, call it modesty
The modesty of body bags

Don't give me a face
Don't give me a name
Don't put me in place
And call us the same

Bloodlines on your face
We'll lose our own faith
Bloodlines and race
And take all the blame

Bloodlines on your face
Don't give me a face
Bloodlines and race
Don't give me a name

Take all the blame

The modesty of body bags
The modesty of body bags

Don't give me a face
Don't give me a name
Don't put me in place
And call us the same
We'll lose our own faith
And take all the blame

Bloodlines on your face
Bloodlines and race
Track Name: LKK (Log Kya Kahenge)
Kabhi dil khol ke socha
Kabhi apne ankhon se dekha
Kabhi dil kisi se laga kar tho dekho
Log kya kahenge?

It's a family affair
A bloody tryst
It's entirely unfair
A slash on the wrist

Out of reach
Out of love
Forgotten speech
Push came to shove

Kabhi dil khol ke socha
Kabhi apne ankhon se dekha
Kabhi dil kisi se laga kar tho dekho
Log kya kahenge?

A slash on the wrist
Out of love
Out of reach
Forgotten speech
Push came to shove

It's a family affair
It's entirely unfair

...everything is fine
You've got your toxins
And I've got mine....
Track Name: Blurry Space
Come back to your hiding place
There's no way they'll find you
You can find yourself
There's no time
There's no place

Space

Leave it on the ground
On the ground
On the ground floor
You will ascend
This life transcend
Into the ether
Into the other side
People will love you
Like you've died
They'll love you like you've died

Come back to your hiding place
There's no way they'll find you
They'll love you like you've died
You can find yourself
There's no time
There's no place
They'll love you like you've died

Space
Track Name: Dive (Texarkanada)
I am trying to
Find my way back
To you
Waiting for inspiration
Dedication
To you

I'm standing here
Waiting for you
I can't find myself
In and around you

Will you believe me
Will you deceive me
Do you know your name?
Will you believe me
Will you deceive me
Do you know your name?
I didn't say it
I don't remember what to call you
I don't remember what to call you
Who are you?

Who are you?
Who are you?

I can't remember your name
Don't know what to say
Can't take the blame
It's all a shame
Can't remember your name
I don't know what you said
I was in your bed
and your father's dead
and your father's dead
Your father's dead
But he's still in your head
He's still in your head
What is your name
How do you say it
What do you call yourself

Do you know who you are?
Do you know who you are?
Do you know who you are....?
