Track Name: Life is Not a Waiting Room
I saw you standing in line, you asked if I had the time
You oughtta learn somehow, the only time is now

Life is not a waiting room, 'til you find out you're at the end of the line
Time is on your side, 'til you realize that love has gone by
You're at the right place at the wrong time
You're in the rat race on the wrong side
It hurts just to open your eyes
And you're still standing at the end of the line
Life is not a waiting room, 'til you find out you're at the end of the line

They made you wait for so long, love rang but you were not home
While you were waiting in line, love went and left you behind

Track Name: I Fell in Love with a Dead Boy
I found you with red tears in your eyes
I asked you what is your name, you offered no reply
Should I call a doctor? For I fear you might be dead
But I just lay down beside you, and held your hand...
I fell in love with you, now you are my only one
'Cause all my life I been so blue, but in that moment you fulfilled me
I fell in love with a dead boy
Now I will tell all my friends, and I'll tell my family
Oh such a beautiful boy
Now I write letters to Australia
Now I throw bottles out to sea
No one's gonna take you away from me
Oh such a beautiful boy
I fell in love with a dead boy...
Are you a boy? Are you a girl?
Oh such a beautiful boy!
Track Name: Scarcity
I just wrote a love letter, to the person that I might have been
If there'd been no disruption, free from all the corruption
Scarcity has fucked with me, it's a mentality
How different life would be, if not for scarcity
It offers no protection, even with the rejection
It's not reality, I don't need charity
Oh oh oh, no....
I threw out that toxic shit that I clung to all of these years
It's finally come to pass, you've gone out with the trash
Scarcity had made me see, you as some rarity
I let you stay with me, it fuckin' blinded me
I lived off of the scraps, kept myself under wraps
Now I've got clarity, there is no scarcity
Oh oh oh, no...
