Track Name: Character Studies
Lightening is striking,
I'm warm in a cold bed,
I breath in and the screen on the T.V
Is staring back at me,
I can't look away,
The actress is dying so I start crying.
The lights cold when you go,
When I'm here on my own,
The pillow is freezing,
There's blood when I'm sneezing,
I breath in and the actress.
Track Name: Esther Greenwood
If I was king and you were queen,
I'd wrap myself in polythene,
And swim across the arctic seas,
In search of cures and remedies,
To rid you of your thought disease,
To find the cure that sets you free.

And when the flowers finally found,
I'll jump back in and turn around.
Take you to the only road,
You've ever walked when your alone.
But if you die before I'm home,
Don't cut the skin,
Release the bone.
