Track Name: Repression
Repression of thoughts and all the rest
Can't say my mind, can't speak it
One's much too close, the other was insane
There's no goldylocks for me and there never will be

One day it will be clear
When all the worries disappear

I refuse to stand beside
Those endorsing the lies
They leach away much more than you think
Taking food from children's mouths;
No longer north to south
Track Name: Victim
All my life
Pursuing victimless crimes
All of my design, what a mess I've made
I balance on a knife
And fall into the sea of self-doubt.

And his face
For all the world to see
Is staring back at me, with a toothy white smile
He is in my place,
Performs my ministry and I don't blame him
