Track Name: Black Wolves
in my sight there's a forest
no light but an eerie of chorus
of howls from the demons that surround me in the darkness

my guard was down all along
I brought this on myself
and now I'm left here all alone

to face this pack of shadows
through the trees I see their eyes
and gnashing teeth
they are waiting x2
for me to grow weak

these demons I created
these demons I created
these demons I created

I'll take it all
I'll take more from you then you could ever steal from me
all you did was stoke my inner battle
This end game I foresaw isn't going down like this
because this is my fucking mind

I know what you are
A shadow from my past

I know how to kill you
Cause self awareness was all that I lacked

these demons I've created
I am not turning back

these demons I've created
I'm taking my soul back
Track Name: Composite King
there is nothing to achieve for a composite king

we're eager to be defined
the end of the journey always in sight
we think we know the design
and elevate ourselves to premature heights

we gotta look inside
pick up the pieces and arrange them by size
no better time to start
the whole of the sum is always equal to it's parts

there is nothing to achieve for a composite king
we are all equal to our parts
ever forward and down doomed to slump with the weight
of his crown
Track Name: Hollow Pursuits
one by one in financial rows

futures unclear living in a shadow
no way forwardon this leash,
made of debt and formed in regret

you are free to dream but who does it belong to?
if you can't follow through cause of your hollow pursuits

fuck the banks

I won't be debts slave

one by one like a chess piece
they will yank on your debts leash

no way forward,
on this leash made of debt and formed on regret

if I knew back then, what I know now
would I take it all back the dreams and debt

if you knew back then, what you know now
would you take it all back

I'm better than this
I'll fill my hollow life
with intelligence and confidence
Track Name: Growth
growing up with something more than I had before
resolving to grow ever stronger held back by an unknown force
I've been this way for too many days and it's starting to show

I can't work any longer or focus on my goals
I'm sick of wasting time
I'm wasting away

I know it can be hard climbing out of a rut
but I'm sick of suffering
I'm sick of being stuck

I'm sick of wasting time
I'm looking for some growth

weither it's slow or quick
weither one or multiple projects

if I learned my lesson through it
it was well worth it

I'll grow like a tree rooted in stone
I'll fly like a bird migrating home
