- LyricsSo, lowly criminal,
please tell me, how do you plead?
Now, honorable judges, ladies, gentlemen of the jury, please allow me to present my case...
Ha! What case can you possibly present
to rip a man from his family, faith, and friends? Defense?
- LyricsKeep out the intruders! Put the drawbridge up!
The enemy ransacked what we had just rebuilt!
Now the garden lies in serene symmetry
And severe color theory.
Roots slowly poisoining
- LyricsDoes history guide you, or do you set out to change it?
Breach not broken. X2
Skinned-alive designer wear,
Fashion shades and salon hair.
- LyricsIntentional dreaming reveals a deceit less obvious
It's the liars who are punished but the liars speak the truth
I will never know your intention but I'll make clear my own
You are guilty by association and I'm taking your sentence on
To forget is the greatest (ardor)
- LyricsMemory is fiction, so the past is your invention
Catch yourself, self-dissect, how youth outlives age
How beauty shames skill
Prayer is for dependents and wish is for the will
A struggle for independence, a harmless stage
