Track Name: Should I?
Sitting in the club
With a crooked tongue
Music like his brain
Nothing he can say

How the bodies sway
Time calls out his name
Feels his should turn grey
Would be a lie to disobey

If this the answer, what will I become?
I’ve tried to be human - was not enough
My soul turns grey with human love.

Should I?
Should I?
Should I?

Sitting in the park
Sitting in the dark
Sees them come and go
Waits for one alone

The fox he has no same
The sky calls out his name
Now he hears her on her way
Would be a lie to disobey

If this is the answer, what have I become?
I’ve tried to be human, was not enough.
My soul turns grey with human love.

Should I?
Should I?
Should I?
Track Name: How A Man Should Be
The night is deep like the tide
Worked up boys, production lines
Your lipstick stains will all turn stale
Your love is like a beggar’s wail

I hope you find some peace
But that life is not for me
I’ll show you how to be.

Open arms make peaceful hearts
That is how a man should be
Peaceful hearts point to stars
That is how a man should be
That is how a man should be

But I’ve no love inside these bones
It’s buried far beneath the snow
Amongst the trees that grow so deep
I wait for warmth, my truth to leak

I feel so incomplete
There’s a missing part of me
Won’t you show me how to be?

Open arms make peaceful hearts
That is how a man should be
Peaceful hearts point to stars
That is how a man should be
That is how a man should be

That is how a man should be
That is how a man should be

Open arms make peaceful hearts
That is how a man should be
Peaceful hearts point to stars
That is how a man should be
