Track Name: Districts
Back to the first place
Where I met you
You were okay
I was fine, just fine

When I saw your face
I'm addicted to your smile
Colour my life - make it worthwhile

Our song goes
On and on

Under the street lamps
I was shaking as I passed out
Thinking of you, helpless without a clue

What's this I'm feeling?
As I'm floating through the districts of my life
I'm wondering

And I walk
On and on

On and on
Track Name: Purple
I never asked you to be mine
That would happen in a different time

I never asked if you were free
Never wanted you as a part of me

Always
Always

I never wanted to be told
The people I love were to be stoned

I never sought to be unique
But I was made or learned to be your freak

Always
Always

The purple on her feet
The neon on the streets
Stars over my head
The nights I spent in foreign beds

The people that I’ve loved
Different but they still bleed
The comfort from the lights
Illuminate our plight

Always
(turn around, turn around today)
Always
(turn around, turn around)
The neon on the streets
Lead me to where she weeps

Always
(turn around, turn around today)
Always
(turn around, turn around)
The stars up in the sky
Are our only alibi
Track Name: Elephants
I watch the tears roll down your face
(But I have to leave you behind)
I sorely miss your warm embrace
(But I have to leave you behind)
Your trunk is wrapped around my face
(turn away while you have the time)
Please let me go, from your caress
(turn away you’re no longer mine)

And all I know
(she loves me, she loves me)
And all I need
(Is to set her free)
And all I see
(little children making her angry)
And all I want
(uncage the elephant)

I watch her legs under give way
(everything’s gonna be just fine)
I have to stop her in this rage
(everything’s gonna be just fine)
My gun is pointed at your face
Ill set you free, from this place

And all I know
(she loves me, she loves me)
And all I need
(Is to set her free)
And all I see
(little children making her angry)
And all I want
(uncage the elephant)

You have to go
You have to

And all I know
(she loves me, she loves me)
And all I need
(Is to set her free)
And all I see
(little children making her angry)
And all I want
(uncage the elephant)
Track Name: Settle Kettle
So here we go again
Another day knee deep in grains
Earning just a fifth of what you pay
Not as if life let me have a say

Didn’t get a chance to educate
But I forged on for my children’s sake
Sent to school to earn above my rate
But they spent my sweat on bags instead

Just settle down somewhere
Put the kettle to boil and stare
At the paint peel off the walls
Why couldn’t we love what we had

And look at all these smiles
They bought with hunger, can’t walk a mile
In shoes I wore until they broke
Just sell my soul, the TV spoke

Didn’t get a chance to teach them well
Bent over my life was hell
Friends I knew saved up for age
I threw my life, in the cage

Just settle down somewhere
Put the kettle to boil and stare
At the paint peel off the walls
Why couldn’t we love what we had

As I write my memoirs
Forgiven but not forgotten
All of us at the table
Watch me make my life stable
Track Name: Cotton Candy Conspiracy
The cotton candy vendors
Tryna sell me something sweet
Pink fluff on a stick
What could this possibly be

This is no conspiracy
(no time for consequences)
This is just diabetes
(no time left for us)

And I just can’t get enough
Of that sickly sugar fluff
One more can’t hurt me
I am perfectly healthy

This is no conspiracy
(no time for consequences)
This is just diabetes
(no time left, woo!)

This is no conspiracy
(no time for consequences)
This is just diabetes
(no time left for us)

This stomachache reminds me
Of a less melancholic time
When I didn’t need my sweets
The CCC is real

This is no conspiracy
(no time for consequences)
This is just diabetes
(no time left for us)
Track Name: Rome
Sons and daughters gather round
It's time to say goodbye
He'll find a path
And never look behind

But when your back is turned
All is ablaze
Have you forgotten
What it's like to be raised

I might be lost
But don't expect me to see me fall
All roads lead to Rome
Expect to see me

Roots, shoots, and baby flowers
Concrete soil with cement towers
Hate what you see
But this made me

Yeah when you lose your sight
Don't be afraid it's just night
Breathe the air that we did
And you will not lose road

I might be lost
But don't expect to see me to fall
All roads lead to Rome
Expect to see me home
