Album
Name of Song: Material

Early on
Still not far gone,
Into the abyss
of material. 

Tricked and tricked
and tricked and tricked,
Until convinced 
of material. 

Never meant 
to lend ourselves
to something like
material. 

But we did, 
It took so long
to change us 
to material. 


Chorus
We were bored,
It seems that way,
No going back 
to earlier days. 
Material
has taken charge,
Or so we think
made it too large.

Early on
Still not far gone,
Then into the abyss
of material. 

Tricked and tricked
and tricked and tricked,
Until convinced 
of material. 

Never meant 
to lend ourselves
to something like
material. 

But we did, 
It took so long
to change us 
to material. 


Chorus
We were bored,
It seems that way,
No going back 
to earlier days. 
Material
has taken charge,
Or so we think
made it too large.

We were bored,

No going back

Material

Or so we think
made it too large.

Bridge
Material,
We made in charge,
Negated self
to make it large. 
So here we stand 
Abandoned home,
Now the game
making material our own.

Material,
We made in charge,
Negated self
to make it large. 

We still negate
our own true self,
It’s normal now
when you’re not yourself.


Chorus
We were bored,
It seems that way,
No going back 
to earlier days. 
Material
has taken charge,
Or so we think
made it too large.

I’m not myself,
It’s true I’m not,
But I’m still trying
to resolve the plot.

So here I am,
I’m what is left,
Of who I was
before the theft.

Stealing life
is what they do,
And who are they?,
Definitely not YOU.
