Track Name: Great White Shark
I feel like a great white shark
I keep circling round
In the shadows near the hull of a boat
From a deep abyss,
I'm approaching the cage.

I feel like a great white shark
My victim is so far out of view,
I'll let his confidence grow for a while
Till I feel his racing pulse.
I'm approaching the cage

And I can taste it by the bait in my mouth,
You were waiting for me all along
In a place where I usually hunt
There comes a deep abyss,
I'm approaching the cage.
Track Name: Callous Words
There’s nothing less honest than these words
There’s nothing more callous than when you hide
You could have done something different than conceal the truth

There’s nothing more crooked than your signs
Diverting your signals every time
I thought we were on the same page
Lost and hard to find

Deliver the scent of your motions
Her potent clues were a warning
I should have done something different
Then you’d still be near

And If I could decipher you
Your cryptic language leaves me bruised
If I could only crack your codes
Interpret all days gone cold

There’s nothing more true than what you said
But I wasted my time trying to warm a cold bed
I could’ve done something different
But then you’d still be here.
