Track Name: gone (with bijou)
it comes in waves
these great mistakes have left him searching for more
and unsure of where to turn
bullets sink deep and then they burn
she's gone,a minor piece
that's left him war, a body weak
dark nights, locked away
he's just a ghost, focused on the past
thinking of what he lacks compared to what he has
a man that writes his loneliness in poems
a man with a story to tell
