"Daughters" as written by and Dylan Alexander Stark Andre Faivre....
Race, rabbit heart race
red wine coursed through vindictive veins
red river, run
help me forget what I have done
and what I’ve yet to do,
everyone I’ll hurt when I’ve seen this through
if I can’t cater to the likes of you
who’re you to dispute armour of valid truth
Seven doors, curtain call
half way around the world I’ve lost it all
each inhibition, all prohibition
thrown to the wind as a nation listens
with their ears to the ground
coveting the forfeit of a crown
that doesn’t exist
with their ears to the ground
if you speak of a demon now,
it appears.

All I’ve ever wanted was to believe
before my family’s eyes are torn from me
I’m finding it hard to believe
in the things I cannot see
(like I used to) [2x]
like I did

Most days I’m tracking back in torment
when I remember when
our innocence quelled ignorance
a peripheral indifference
now it’s ‘fuck that, you made your bed’
you think I don’t regret what I did to them?
I can’t take it back and I won’t pretend
but I’m man enough to have dropped her hands
like I’d said.

All I’ve ever wanted was to believe
before my family’s eyes are torn from me
I’m finding it hard to believe
in the things I cannot see
(like I used to)x3 , like I

I know I fucked up but I was only a kid,
I was too short sighted to see what I did
I destroyed what was left of the little you had
and now nothing can bring it back
