Track Name: Runaway
I am not your runaway
I am not your runaway
Just a vagrant of this fate
But I am not your runaway
I have fallen in a peace I never wanted
I have chosen to burn the weight of systemic shame

Just to be undermined
And you wanna know if it’s right
Clear as snow in July
And you wanna know if it’s right

(I see clearly)
(The words are misty)
To bear the weightless, the shameless, the blameless, the names
I rest my case; no abusive ways

Just to be undermined
And you wanna know if it’s right
Clear as snow in July
Still you claim to show that you’ve tried
Track Name: Occhiolism
When did my voice get annoying?
Unnecessary apologizing may be exploiting
All the progress I have made
Turning off my crowded brain

Purifying, glorifying strangers
This occhiolism, I admit,
Is my recurring tick
A defense for thinning skin
And expressing permanence
For my fleeting relevance
And my aging patience
In my sexual nervousness
And in my feigned consciousness
COndemnations pouring in

If you leave her, then you leave me
I’ll forgive you when you forget me
‘Cause what’s the point?
Track Name: Strawberry
Nothing can be simple for once
How long did we wait for the want?
Caused another problem instead
Never said you were not human

But you don’t make sense, my love
You’ve enough to blame, then some
Can you get my wine?

Break another bone off your spine
Judge another misspoken line
Caused another problem again
Never claimed to be so human

But you don’t make sense, my love
You’ve enough to blame, then some
I can tell you’re quite undone
You don’t make sense, my love

I want, I came to be
My own body led me right
You’re a strawberry
I’m a strong lady
I want nothing more
I’m a strawberry
I’m a strong lady
I want nothing but....
Lay me down
Track Name: A Leap Too Tall
Bewildered, I stand small
A universe hurt by a leap too tall

The end nears, it disappears, it reappears
It chases the full stop
We run and run and run,
Too blind to see we were already caught

The fire burns
but your hands stay on the flame
The preacher yearns
His eyes clouded by haze

Tainted glass on the sidewalk
A bridge and a path, both in lonesome
Jaded, I see the grim past
Faded I fear, the aftermath

So could you leave a page or two in my name
List all the faults for which I was to blame

There's tainted glass on my wooden floor and my seldom seen heart
A bridge and a path, both to lonesome
Jaded, I see, the grim past
Faded, I breathe

It will remain untold
The honest will have no home
We are lying through our teeth
It's what the bearded man taught me

The matter is not two fold
My stories will grow old
The children will laugh in glee
It’s where the earnest man sent me
Track Name: Joshua
You are a ghost inside
An attic I left behind
Poison that tastes like wine
I made up my mind

You were a bad disguise
Of something I tried to hide
Battle wound of a time
That I made up my mind
Track Name: Unfound
Vaade tod diye // promises were broken
Hum bojh ban gaye // I became a burden
Sapne cheen liye // dreams were stolen
Hum bojh reh gaye // I remained a burden

Waiting at the bus stop
Plagued by absent speech
A matter of semantics
Haunting me
Always in exile
To all the subtleties
I voiced a feeling too strong for me

You were my abandoned
I let you down
I was your exception for waiting around
We were too present in worlds that were unfound
We were too profound

Holding to a memory
Of a form of me who never did
Leave you wanting more and more each time

You were my abandoned
I let you down
I was your exception for waiting around
You were too present
I couldn’t make a sound
Your heart was too loud
And I was too unsound
Track Name: The Pining
Safe and waiting for the dawn
Late and pining for a way out
My body was yours to keep
My body was yours to leave behind
You
Falling, falling down
Wanting to be sound
Falling, falling down
Wanting to be with you
