Track Name: This Side of Paradise

hands that feel, teeth that cut
boots with heels, go and strut
feels right, have a taste
throw it up, such a waste
boiled blood, drives you mad
blow it off, just a fad
in the back, smoke it up
take a swig, down the cup
tear it up, burn it down
feeling hurt, lie around
hair a mess, nails chipped
stained dress, world flipped
coming down, about to choke
take some more, now you're broke
cause that’s just the price
on this side of paradise

Its not there anymore
I left it behind
you can’t touch it
you can’t feel it
Its not on this side
its not here with us
i don’t want it here
I don’t want it

At the door, back again
kick em’ out, not your friend
pack it tight, make it fit
close your eyes, feel it hit
trying hard, give your most
show it off, go and boast
don't be shy, take a peek
sanctified, what a freak
rotted thoughts, in your head
wants it quick, hit the bed
takes it hard, bleeding heart
grabs the mud, not so smart
talk it out, make a deal
spit it back, makes you reel
never feels quite right
on this side of paradise
Track Name: Mercy

Close the curtains
We’re in this world now
It’s darker here
I can see you crystal clear
you already know
I changed the flow
Never shown any care
I was some sorta fucked up dare

My soul is in your hands
I can not stand
I will not breath
Have mercy on me

I’m not one to play games
Just go ahead and say it
Take it all with you
Last part of the two
So many days to go and lose
Yet so hard to refuse
All that's come to pass
I know it won’t be the last
