Track Name: Razor Burn
Walking around with my head pointed down looking for something to do
Party's just started and yet I've forgotten the reason for talking to you
I walk away and you think I'm afraid. It's just some distance i need
Small talk and chatter hey they don't matter so here's what I'm saying to you

The burn that you feel goes away when you heal
The scars that remain they don't feel any pain
Oh and did i mention that here it's my intention for letting just know how i feel
Use the razor you need but beware you don't bleed

Taking advice but taking it twice will only set yourself back
You wanna take without seeming fake the story that will help you out
Ready the hand that you want them to see. Play everything close to your vest
Prepare the day but don't give it away. Forget about all of the rest
Track Name: Comrade
I always thought that you were someone else
But you can't trust your allies much less yourself

War makes for strange fellows in bed
Little do you know she sleeps with a pistol by her head

Spellbound with your cities in dust
Surviving hot for a blood lust

These shocking feelings keep you feeling off guard
I found myself in a strange house, strange land, strange hands
Track Name: Hey Rozzie
Went to the playground for the time of my life
That's when you saw me there
Rolled down to the village a while
But i thought it was square
Felt so cold when you left me alone
Never thought you'd say
That I'm in you and you're in me
But we're not the same

I took a ride down the Suicide
That how i got my kicks
Met old man George for a pickup game
That's when we'd hit the bricks
Well that side yours and this side mine
Seemed to go all right
Then came a day that i moved on
And it caused a fight

Hey Rozzie hey Rozzie
Whatever happened to you
Hey Rozzie hey Rozzie
What's a guy to do?
