Track Name: Energy
I've got this aching hole in my chest that lets me know you're the best.
Concrete filling, I am a building.
An apartment complex for you, dear.
As long as you are near I'll always be here.
I can't wait forever,
I will erode in time.

So here's my chance
Just give me a glance
Just lower your defense
It's always been this way since...

Please let me in.
Don't keep me out.
Track Name: Brotel Rwanda
I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I haven't slept for weeks.
I won't sleep for weeks.

A day not tasted is a day gone wasted.
Once quick on the feet,
now too tired to leave his seat.

The prolonging of days has swallowed me.
No one can sleep,
The suns always at its peak.

A collapsing east side is collapsing here.
Nothings the way it should,
I don't think it ever could.
Track Name: Ded
Today is the day I will make myself
Tomorrow I'm sure I will break myself
We build ourselves up to the fall
'till we have nothing at all.

Everyday I feel my grip tightening
And I know yours is lightening
And I know there's nothing I can do.
There's nothing I can do without you.
Track Name: Defined
I don't need you to tell me how I need to be.
You don't know anything about me.

Maybe I want to be awkward;
Maybe I want to be me;
Maybe I want to be different;
Maybe I don't want to be defined.
Maybe I can see you don't care.
