Track Name: Pangea
Glory to all still in need
Those who must stop to bleed, else exceed

Bring me a drop of the sun
Smold'ring in a cup, then on my tongue

I was the one who broke Pangea
Continent, shift, and ocean be a
fill of my glass, drinkable mass
This is the last call of a dying king

Reborn in an instance of doubt
Self-inflicted the clout, and found out

The jeweled crown was bent to
form around the head of another
in the line, so take my anodyne

I thought me the only one
The naivety, the smoking gun
So bring me a drop of the sun
Shimm'ring in a cup, then on my tongue

I was the one who broke Pangea
Continent, shift, and ocean be a
fill of my glass, drinkable mass
This is the last call of a dying king
Track Name: The Actress' Kiss
The actress' kiss staged upon my lips
Our love's tragedy, just a display placed in a play

But I hide my heart deep behind the art
though I feel as I do there on the page, here on the stage

Truth, truth is just a line memorized
Sweat awaits my eyes as her lips close on mine
Truth, truth is just a thing we enact
How should I react, when it's all just an act?

Every night I'm forced to love you again
Dramatize the honest feeling and then
Take a bow for what they think is pretend
Every night I get to watch as it ends

But who can complain when who you love is
a role planned and feigned? Please understand that
I kiss you in hopes that you can see through
my act, through the theater, and the disbelief
