Track Name: Dangerous Drift
You threw me out with the garbage.
Now I'm drifting at sea with no apparent direction.
And the stars are all I can see.
There's so much left of what I can be.
If I wash ashore, rescue me...
Track Name: Run Freddie Run
Blood on my hands.
Last night I killed a man.
There's mud on the sole of my shoes.
I buried his body in a deep dark hole.
Now there's a stain in my book of life.
But I'd do it again to make things right...
Track Name: A Contagious Spring
You bring me up before I dwindle down.
You're a contagious spring.
Keep on comin' around.
Cause I wanna grow into you.
Soon as I get real cold, you bring me back in bloom...
Track Name: The Light You Bend To
Just listen...
Track Name: Desensitize
I care too much.
I melt in your touch.
In your lips and your eyes.
If only I could desensitize...
Track Name: Robber's Dilemma
I'm laying awake thinking of ways to get paid, to make my way.
Money's thin, having devilish thoughts of taking a bank just one day.
Snapping out, hurt from hunger pains.
Bring me back, I hate this daze.
Niggaz is broke unfocused jokes working for minimum wage.
While these crackers paid....
Track Name: These Things
I made you play with me like you played with those other kids.
I made you play with me against your will.
Live with these things...
