about

Our first official single.

lyrics

I'm getting rich a second time
Free from righteous cities
Free from egos that curse you
With no sense of pity
Overcome
All the cloudy thoughts I've had
As I roll up all the smoke
Of what's been said

Now
I'm getting rich a second time
From a burning fire.
I roll my smokes from burnt up ashes.
My one desire (x2)

I've wasted
So many years to the life
Of dreaming
The trash of the night
You call this a life
But that shits so ripe
True pain
True disregard for everything
The trash of the night
You call that the life
With everything that you
Do to survive

Where is the line between
Fitting in and fading out
(What you'll do to survive)
It's so hard to think
When my heart is racing


I'll be the hostage today
With nothing to prove
I'll be the hostage

Now shots are fired
Now I've got to hit the floor.
Keep fucking moving to the door in the room
Pick up distance
Cover tracks behind
And drop the match in time

I've regained the gift of my sight.
I've regained life (2x)

The trench is greener from the other side
With a piece of mind
Not burning bridges they're broken
With a shallow tide

Where is the line between
Fitting in and fading out
(What you'll do to survive)
It's so hard to think
when my heart is racing

I'll be the hostage today
With nothing to prove
I'll be the hostage

Don't expect
For life to go and to
Bring you there.
The trash of the night
You call that the life
Well that shits so ripe
Those who've said
You know you got to
Craw before you walk
Have clearly never been
In a hostage situation

The trench is greener from the other side
With a piece of mind
Not burning bridges they're broken
With a shallow tide (2x)

I'm getting rich a second time
Free from righteous cities
Free from egos that curse you
With no sense of pity
Overcome
All the cloudy thoughts I've had
As I roll up all the smoke
Of what's been said

I'm getting rich a second time
From a burning fire (x4)
