Track Name: The Slow Fall (prod. Empty)
Lewis Galaga's Verse:
I saw the best minds of my 'generation tryin to get it right.
Bright beacons fadin in the silence of the night
Sailin blind without the guidance of a light.
divided
Swept away beneath the violence of the tides.
A life awry, deprived of the lighter side of life,
A minor slight, decrying the finer types of might.
It's Dynamite, when you finally find you're in line with either side. To light a fire inside you like a radioactive spider bite.
But might and power are seductive like the dark side of the force, and then of course you can't escape from in it's jaws. Sometimes you need a bigger boat to make the shore. Sometimes to be sure, is to settle for your flaws.

But I'm a goblin, I see more I want it. My greed's like a mob hit, can't seem to stop it.
' body dropping. These bystanders watching. But they ain't saying nothing like they don't see a problem.

Chorus:
It's in a state, far away
It doesn't take a lot to stray there
It's an escape, you medicate, to meditate on how you'll stay there.

Empty's Verse:
Life isn’t a simple situation at all
sometimes the only control is over how slow you fall
I know i had moments when I was high and saw the signs
but now the hi is gone and life has found it time to close the door

so now I’m sitting and waiting up on my neighbours porch
and now I’m drinking and hating (bitching) and getting faded more cause
I’m no longer paving the way to make a name performing
saying not today while i’m praying for some escape from torture

make no mistake though i complain i know the pain’s important
so I pretend that everything’s is just ok and all my
friends and family want me to smile and so I fake it for them
keep on working sleeping saving til I can pay the doorman

I blame the culture, I pay it forward
cause changing the way I play the game has become way too forceful
at my age it’s normal to see other’s gain acclaim
on stages that were made for more than fame and fortune

Chorus:
It's in a state, far away
It doesn't take a lot to stray there
It's an escape, you medicate, to meditate on how you'll stay there.
Track Name: Like Dying Every Second (prod. Richard Beats S.A)
Empty:
I know I’m sentimental
But I have been through heaven
So I remember living
Like dying every second
I try hard forgetting
Though I am just pretending
I was part of something
And that something ended
And I love the memories
So why not extend them
Who am I offending
Just throwing my two cents in
So I like the habit
I’m just a minor addict
It’s not like I can’t manage
And no-one but Brian has it

My whole life’s a pattern
Killing time with rapping
It’s why I write about it
So why lie about it?
I keep running letters
Cause I have nothing better
Maybe I had it once
But then I made some major errors
They may stay imbedded
In my brain forever
Until I’m old and messed up
You could call it just a
Way to fall and get up
And ignore those better
I like to think it’s more a method
To make more of lesser

Chorus:
Goodbye, goodbye
Living it too long, let’s escape
goodbye, goodbye
Blink and then it’s gone, and so we say

Lewis Galaga:
Fare thee well, lost love,
you're hard to shake,
Like past mistakes. Like eve trustin snakes.
I Keep on puttin fear away.
But always seem to keep it handy anyway. Just in case.
And I don't trust a racist
But I ain't bustin faces,
hate corrupts, I've tasted love and love is greatest.
And I gave up the race to make it, Fuck a paycheck
I'd rather be a freak of nature than a family favourite.
So you can take a piece of me. I'll give it gladly. I got some baggage I need to be rid of badly.
lizard skin I'm shedding madly, while boney fingers try to grab me
but they trippin if they think they ever had me,
So while I'm saying syonara you can fight and argue, or try to bargain
I find the crying parts the hardest
cause I don’t hate you,
and this ain’t the goodbye I’m after
if life’s a question then acceptance is the final answer

Chorus:
Goodbye, goodbye
Living it too long, let’s escape
goodbye, goodbye
Blink and then it’s gone, and so we say
