Track Name: Lament
And just as my eyes start seeing
After all the pain
The twist in my life starts healing
Just to twist again
In stillness, in sorrow
Returns that softly sighing lament

And just as the smile's returning
After all the pain
The fire inside stops burning
Just to burn again
In moments of madness
Returns that softly sighing lament
Track Name: To The Core
This is my first
This is my birth
This is a gift
It’s not a curse

Reaching through your core
Reaching through your core
Reaching through your core
To be born

The light is bright
The air is cold
The world is rough
But I’m coming home
The light is bright
The air is cold
The world is rough
But I’m coming home

This is my choice
This is my voice
This is the plan
Woman or man

Reaching through your core
Reaching through your core
Reaching through your core
To be born

The light is bright
The air is cold
The world is rough
But I’m coming home
The light is bright
The air is cold
The world is rough
But I’m coming home

Reaching through your core
Reaching through your core
Reaching through your core
To be born

The light is bright
The air is cold
The world is rough
But I’m coming home
The light is bright
The air is cold
The world is rough
But I’m coming home

Reaching through your core
Reaching through your core
Reaching through your core
To be born
Track Name: Retro Hex
This Retro Hex
Never be next
A peculiar sex
Beneath the text
A backwards dance
Red right hand
A fighters stance
Games of chance

Ghost and rhyme
The devil’s time
Fall behind
Stars decline
Turned in its seam
Indelicate scheme
A night-horse dream
Voiceless scream

An animal tongue
The world hath stung
When pictures hung
Deeds undone
Time is a curse
Normal’s perverse
Hidden reverse
Might be worse

Tipped on its axis
This is madness
This is madness
This is madness
This ... delight
Or in a palace
This is madness
This is madness
This is madness
This ... delight
Retro Hex, this Retro Hex this ...this
