Track Name: Memento Mori
Put me in a cage and I will sing like the canary
Promise I won't say a single word that I don't mean
Dug a deeper hole to find myself trapped and the walls are too high to get out
but any hand that came to help would only buckle at the weight

If you were better of dead, you wouldn't be here in the first place.

Found myself alone in a room full of people (I don't know)
Makes me awful scared to feel that way all the time
Heavy was the weight of the albatross about my neck was hung
But it's okay, cause' it's apart of me and there's nothing wrong with that

If you were better of dead, you wouldn't be here in the first place.

Memento Mori
We all will die someday
So keep your head above the ground, if just for now

Memento Mori
We all will die someday
So tell the ones that you care for you love them cause'
They might not love you back, someday.
Track Name: Merrily, Merrily, Merrily.
We were boats full of sin
On the same troubled waters, we sailed
With our backs to the wind
Always pressing onward

Am I awake, am I alive and am I whole?
We find such comfort in the stories we've been told
But if ignorance is bliss, well bliss I've never known

But you say I am not the only one who doesn't feel alive sometimes
But if life is just a dream, then I'm so lucky to have dreamt it
With you.

Take these words you wrote that read "I love you back"
They're day old memories
Of a time when that's all that I dreamt of hearing
And as our aging bones continues to decay
and our minds collapse
Maybe then will our love relapse

But you say that I am not the only one who doesn't feel alive sometimes
But if life is just a dream, then i'm so lucky to have dreamt it

And Merrily merrily we will all move along
And merrily merrily we will continue on (the same).
