Track Name: "In A State Of Wonder"
I owe my blood loss to the shards of glass
From the broken lights that hide my way
Wandering aimlessly for twenty years
Is how I came to be this way

Don’t you ever dare look into my eyes
For you will never look away
You will go mad with love, you’re hypnotized
You will forever be enslaved

In a state of
