Us and Them Album

Welcome friends to seconds lost and starts that want to begin
To twisted eyes that see inside rules that always bend
A simple task a see through mask that questions where and why
We shed our skin to occupy and keep our peace of mind

Bring only what you need to survive

They burned an image from lines on my face
They stole it from the pages that kept my place
I stand on the outside and die to get in
I’ll crawl inside just to begin again

So unfair this broken smile that keeps us all aware
Of wishful thoughts and scenes we lost
And times we’ll never share
I ask you now to show me how to fill the circle in
What tells us all there is no fall and the story never ends

(The Struggle)
