Track Name: I Benefited From Apartheid
Lyrics:

I have been trying to write a song about Abahlali baseMjondolo
and a 17 year old girl that got shot by police
...but it feels so fake. It feels so false
to be sitting writing words that I know nothing about.

... and In Durban and Cape Town there have been forced removals
in informal settlements.
Apartheid like measures captured on iPhones
Wounded protesters murdered in their hospital beds...

and does anybody care...

...Maybe It's too far from home.
Track Name: Life As A Multicellular Organism
I became another attempt at your self medication
another habit you thought you needed but wanted to quit
and though it's hard sometimes
and everyday I sigh
at least we stopped before we became those things we hate

she sees a world so pretty she could explode
she sees a world so gritty and awful

and I guess that's the way it is
and it wreaks havoc inside her brain
and I guess that's the way it is
life is pretty insane
and I guess that's the way it is
god damn the moss growing on the rocks
Track Name: These Lows
Wasn't there light
An overhang for these streets
Now shadows are obstructing all I'm struggling to see
I feel in black and white
Reason does not agree
An irrational mind closes in on this throat pulls me to my knees.
Wasn't there a light
An overhang for these streets

These lows hit the ground so hard
Shock waves distort, winds shatter and scar
