Track Name: Sticks and Stones
Sticks and Stones

Actions spoke louder than words
The things you said – so absurd
You exposed your intentions
When you showed the other side of heaven

Sticks and stones – may break my bones
But then your words – they always hurt me
Sticks and stones – may break my bones
But then your words – they almost killed me

Dreams revoked from my mind
The ones you stole – they used to be mine
‘A penny for my thoughts’ you say
A fortune more than I was ever willing to pay

Sticks and stones – may break my bones
But then your words – they always hurt me
Sticks and stones – may break my bones
But then your words – they almost killed me
Track Name: Visual Poetry
Visual Poetry

Mesmerizing, hypnotizing
I fell into her trance, I’m captivated
By her beauty, right before my eyes
Overwhelmed by passion, my heart won’t lie

She’s visual poetry
Perfected symmetry
She’s visual poetry
Beautiful artistry

Some say her essence, could never be captured
Just one touch from her, and my soul was raptured
Words will never describe her angelic heavenly feelin’
Touching her makes me high, sends my senses reelin’

She’s visual poetry
Perfected symmetry
She’s visual poetry
Beautiful artistry
Track Name: Suffocate
Suffocate

Your touch suffocates our love – suffocate

My breath escapes
Every time I see your face
My soul you take
And I’m a victim of your twisted games

I’m drowning – fighting
For every breath I cannot take
Screaming – grasping
For whatever is left in this breathless state
Your touch suffocates our love – suffocate

You came with an iron fist
How could we know it would lead to this?
Your tired charades
Backwards and forwards – it’s all the same

I’m drowning – fighting
For every breath I cannot take
Screaming – grasping
For whatever is left in this breathless state
Your touch suffocates our love – suffocate
Track Name: Otherside of Me
Music by Ayo . Lyrics by Troy Guerrero. Mastered by Lucas LeCompte.
Track Name: Borrowed Time
Everything that has happened in the dark and in the light
It just can’t mean that much to you
Why does your love always end with death from above?
And your push comes to shove

So cross the center line
I’m only working on borrowed time

Make it a point to burn these bridges, to turn and walk away
You’ll only miss it when it’s gone
Take the time to make it known that this is the end
You know that I don’t mind

So cross the center line
Give yourself a better view
And you never change your mind
I’m only working on borrowed time
