Track Name: Under Your Breath
Everything you see
Pick apart every flaw in me
I refuse to put up any fight
Shut the noise out kiss the world goodnight

'cause I'm all wrapped up having been so lost
I've been torn apart I've been double crossed
Again and again and again

And I'm out of touch and I'm out of luck
And I'm out of friends who have given up
Again and again and again

And I heard you whisper

And I swear I heard you say under your breath
I hope it never comes to this again

My reaction
I will not give into satisfaction
I will not give in
I'll kick your little head in

Worn out and tired and I feel alone
I've been trapped inside the four walls of my own home

It's a turmoil within and I'm grey and thin
And I'm running out of ways to cope with him
I know I know I know I know yet again
Track Name: Algernon
Don't know where I started from
Don't know where it all begun
Flashbacks and I'm turning round
Flashbacks Charlie hits the ground

Through the city in a sleepy haze
The walls around me are a shifting maze
False flattery turns me on
Through a maze running Algernon

Too much thinking
Trying to ride the tide
You are sinking
You don't even know why

I remember I ran away
Think I left for the thrill of the chase
Blind panic I turn and run
Threw the flowers for Algernon

I don't wanna start again but I don't really have a choice right now
Track Name: Target No.9
Drop to the floor
I don't wanna know
Don't do it for the action it's for a thrill
A number's a lot easier to kill

My personal vendetta won't hold me down
My age old obsession with the hunting grounds
The chains of my profession won't pull me back

Don't do it for the action it's for a thrill
A number's a lot easier to kill
Drop your hook with a smile
I waited for you baby and it took a long time
