Track Name: I Do What I Hate And I Hate What I Do
Who can break apart this chain,
All of the sins in my own name?
Why do I cling to what is bad,
When I’ve got blood on my own hands?
I’m giving up on all I have,
I want to run away
But just don’t know where to,
Because I do what I hate,
And I hate what I do.

You’ll see my name atop the list,
With all the murderers and thieves
And all of the hypocrites.
But I’m the worst among them all,
Because every time I rise
I find another way to fall.
I have to cling to what is good,
I got to throw away the old and start off new,
Because I do what I hate,
and I hate what I do.

So here I am, I’m just a man,
And on this earth I made a mess
And I’ve done everything I can
To clean it up, but had no luck,
‘Cause every price I try to pay
Just never seems to be enough.
Now I start to realize everything
That Man once said, it might be true,
Because I do what I hate,
And I hate what I do.
Track Name: Find Myself (Another Good Girl)
No, I ain’t feeling sorry for you no more
(You stubborn heart)
You got all you asked for
(You stubborn heart)
Don’t take away my smile
(You stubborn heart)
I threw you in the compost pile
(You stubborn heart)

And all that’s left is in my mind
And it keeps saying that I’ve got time
All of the time in the world
To find myself another good girl

So stop telling me your lies
(You broken heart)
All the blood and sweat, it’s gonna dry
(You broken heart)
I know all you ever did is try
(You broken heart)
But it’s for me to say goodbye
(You broken heart)

And all that’s left is in my mind
And it keeps saying that I’ve got time
All of the time in the world
To find myself another good girl

So now you’re gone for sure
(Forgotten heart)
So don’t come back no more
(Forgotten heart)
Cause I’m on top of the world
(Forgotten heart)
Looking down at another good girl

And all that’s left is in my mind
And it keeps saying that I’ve got time
All of the time in the world
To find myself another good girl
Track Name: I See This Blood Flowing Now
If you’re hurt, sick, in pain,
Hear then now your own refrain;
If you strain and seek for truth,
There is an everlasting youth:

If you’re hanging on a tree,
Or if you’ve fallen to the ground,
Our wounds will bring us unity;
I see this blood flowing now!

Be you of heaven or the depths;
He who has right to his own breaths,
Then be it subtle, or a scream,
Lift your voice, and let it ring:

For every wrong done unto you;
For the injustice in your town;
This is a song for pastures new;
I see this blood flowing now!

If you, in battle, do prevail,
Or if your strivings come to fail,
We, hand in hand, conform as one;
And join together in this song:

Whether of roses or of thorns,
If on your head there lies a crown,
Then sound the trumpets, blast the horns;
I see this blood flowing now!
