Track Name: To The Matador
Dear Matador,
I should have written this letter so many years before.
But time passes quickly,
And what I would have said matters not anymore.

Dear Matador,
You've fought every battle harder than you get credit for,
And when the pain starts to settle in,
I am not afraid for my friend anymore.

Dare I say,
There is darkness you have defeated to be here today.
And though the future is uncertain,
You have strength and I am sure it'll be okay.

And you held on when I gave up,
And Matador, what can I say but thank you?

Dear Matador,
At least someone is good, someone is listening,
Something is definitely worth doing,
Though all of this I think you know.

Dear Matador,
Each word is a beacon of reassurance,
That this world is still spinning,
And the speed is mathematically constant.

Dear Matador,
I have not enough talent for the reference,
Of all your beautiful poetics,
But when the muse is right, I must accomplish.

And you held on when I gave up,
And Matador, what can I say but thank you?

Dear Matador,
This Halloween I will find a proper present,
Something you would enjoy,
Because once again, you've taken life by the horns.
Track Name: False Truths
If I told you the world had a shortage of truth,
Would you trust me not to lie?
Or would you blink away all the words from my mouth,
Think "there's no point to even try".

I'm just ordinary,
Lift up this veil,
And you'll see my human eyes.

I just want you to see that I exist,
I just want you to believe that I am here.
I am here.

Passed over, look away, I'm just a face,
And all I do is disappoint.
Not the child you wanted but the one you have,
I'm sorry to report.

I can't be my brother, can't be my cousin,
You'll have to settle for less.
I just want to be higher once.

Can you look at me, and just accept what I have to show?
Can you look into your own son's soul?

Cause I just want you to see, that I exist,
I just want you to believe that I am here.
I am here.

At this point I'd just take a "good job."
Hell, lie if you feel you can't say it.
Pretend and make me feel special,
Criticism in every lesson.
And you wonder why I can't do anything,
Prophetic words are the ones that crumble me.
What the hell do I do now?
Please just look at me.

I just want you to see, that I exist,
I just want you to believe,
That I am here. I am here.
