about

Vices was the second single released by Cryptic Jim and it is a mainstay in their setlist.

lyrics

What say we turn, run and hide?
What say we fall deep into the night?
Run away, run from pain
That only bottoms of bottles can face.
What say we leave our woes behind?
Instead of standing here waiting to die
Fall out of lines, time after time
Where we've been subject to the lies.

Our emptiness is a mindset that we fill with vices we'll regret.
Temptation closes in until we're incapacitated, yeah.

Freedom is but a stone's throw away
Regrets are nothing when I'm not feeling a God damn thing
I'm alive; I walk on air, I leave no trail to find
Take to the streets, back to my feet
This is the ground and horizon of my living being
Man, my beliefs are one of a kind
What say we turn and leave no trail to find?

We're subject to substance, make me a slave
Washing my dispossessions away
Another day, another trip
Never to detoxify this shit.
When I'm awake, man I'm in pain
But I come alive when my body breaks
Put me to shame, I live in memories on highs I'll never regain.

Our emptiness is a mindset that we fill with vices we'll regret.
Temptation closes in until we're incapacitated, yeah.

Freedom is but a stone's throw away
Regrets are nothing when I'm not feeling a God damn thing
I'm alive; I walk on air, I leave no trail to find
Take to the streets, back to my feet
This is the ground and horizon of my living being
Man, my beliefs are one of a kind
What say we turn and leave no trail to find?

No trail to find.
