Track Name: Introspection
To friends at school and those then I met and hurt in so many ways,
When tensions run low, it’s easier done, but no matter I do it anyway
Pride makes sometimes words so hard to find when I have to acknowledge my mistakes
But I hope and I pray that it’s not too late ’cause blame the others is what I’ve done best

WHAT DO I SEE?
I look in myself, what do I see?
Anger, conceit, greed and hypocrisy
WHAT DO I SEE?
How can I humbly make myself forgive and forget
Other than dedicating these few words to my friends? MY FRIENDS!

To those I won’t see to make apologies and tell them how much I regret
Now’s the time for me to take responsibility for my actions and my sayings
Envy, the disease inside of me, opened the way for blasphemy
Will humility ever manifest in me? My pride’s too sad to see

WHAT DO I SEE?
I look in myself, what do I see?
Anger, conceit, greed and hypocrisy
WHAT DO I SEE?
How can I humbly make myself forgive and forget
Other than dedicating these few words to my friends? MY FRIENDS!

I’ve lost the wealth I wanted to possess (x2)
I did it… I did it… I did it… I did it!

For all these things I did and that have caused me pain,
No one to blame except myself
How I feel disappointed, how I feel confused,
When I think of these dudes, maybe they feel the same
I had no mirror to see what they could have seen
I lost my mind, it misdirected me
I was wrong, surely, it hurts to look right at myself
So try to forgive me for believing I was better than… you
Track Name: I vs I
It all started out with both you and me,
Playing each other’s role so innocently
Till I realize I was out of control,
Time has come to take my life by the balls
It seems around me everything’s the same,
But as I look again, I see all has changed
You’ve just brought confusion in my mind,
But mind control has changed my life
’Cause I couldn’t stand me in you, I killed you in me,
The many masks I put have given me your identity,
I don’t give a fuck about what you feel,
That’s just the bastard in me!
Just see my bad side put to death,
How it happened, I really don’t care
I have no regrets, I found myself today,
At last I feel connected with myself
I’m living to die, I’m dying to live,
No disguise in what I’m saying,
Telling myself, am I insane?
I know I didn’t make that change in vain
Today’s taking me where I’m meant to be,
It started with you and me, but it will end with me
I was your servant till I fall,
I won’t waste myself on you no more!
Track Name: Tinman
RAISED IN A FAMILY WHERE THE FIGURE OF AUTHORITY
ALWAYS USED TO COME DOWN ON ME,
I’VE BEEN A PRISONER OF MY ANGER, TRAPPED BY MY FEARS,
I THOUGHT I’D NEVER SEE FREEDOM FOR YEARS
NEVER AGAIN! (x3)
FOR IT DOES NO LONGER WORK FOR ME…

Raised in a family where the figure of authority
Always used to come down on me,
I’ve been a prisoner of my anger, trapped by my fears,
I thought I’d never see freedom for years

I’m the tinman, look like the tinman, live like the tinman – TINMAN!
I’m the tinman, act like the tinman, feel like the tinman

As I was shown, I used violence to express myself
And when I knew I had nothing to say
Now I’m trying to get my pride up off the ground,
My self-value’s gone, my confidence cannot be found

I’m the tinman, look like the tinman, live like the tinman
I’m the tinman, act like the tinman, feel like the tinman

Okay, guys, you know what time it is?
It is said that our thoughts lead to our actions, our actions create our habits,
Which create our character and our character creates our destiny.
So it’s time for me to get a new insight, ’cause it doesn’t work for me anymore!

I’ve opened up the part of me that I wanted to hide away
Instead of crying at what you did to me – WHAT YOU DID TO ME!
I’ve found myself a path I can easily follow,
There’s not even myself to stop me now – OH NO!

I was the tinman, I looked like the tinman, I lived like the tinman
I was the tinman, I felt like the tinman, what happened to the tinman?

I do remember clearly when you used to say
“Life is hard, things will always be this way” – IT WON’T BE MY WAY!
I realize I was some kind of enemy to myself,
As now I know I’m my best friend – OH YEAH!

I was the tinman, I looked like the tinman, I lived like the tinman
I was the tinman, I felt like the tinman, I know I’ll never be the same!

Welcome to my new life!
Never again!
