Track Name: Lion
She said that lions, were meant for a cage
She's dulling my claws, and cutting my mane
Says my teeth are too sharp, it would not be safe
For me to be out there, roaming the plains

All I am is a lion, with a brave heart and a body with some scars
All I am is a lion, with a brave heart and a body with some scars

She said that lions, were meant for a cage
Because of our anger and all of our rage
But she mistakes this pain for angst
She says that lions, are all the same

All I am is a lion, who will try and be strong enough
All I am is a lion, whose heart is full of love
She mistakes this pain for angst, that is growing deep inside
She mistakes this pain for rage, that is growing in my eyes

All I am is a lion, whose heart is full of love
Track Name: August
And outside I'm sayin' I don't need you
But inside I'm screamin' I do
But it's to late cuz I'm losing you
And everyone knows it too

And I'm askin' for you to leave
Please get out of my head
Cuz I can't stand these feelings

August reminds me of you
Cuz your name and your birthday too
Seasons change and so do you
Find a reason something to hold on to

Can't you see it's killing me inside
To see you with him tonight
I hope you aren't deaf like you are blind
Maybe now you'll realize

Take it off of me, all of the flaws that you see.
Take it off of you, all of the doubt that you grew.

Don't forget my love
Don't say it's not enough, enough for you
Track Name: Howl
They howl at the moon
I howl for you

We ran through forests like wolves
Over grassy plains, rocky brooks

Thorns tremble beneath our toes
Vines begin to pull us close

But you are just a ghost
A distant memory at most
