Track Name: For the Greater Good
When I was a lad, my sister was attacked
Muggles ruined my life in its beginning
My father in jail, my sister so frail
but so dangerous without her knowing
I tried to escape, overcome my own name
But eventually fate came knocking

So now here I stay, reduced to a caretaker
and accolades are now forgotten
My mother is gone, my brother is lost
My sister a shell, my life's a waste

For the greater good, perhaps wizards should
Prevent violence by empowerment
For the greater good...

Trapped & abased
My life such a waste
Track Name: Charm and Hubris
Complex & winsome, attractive and then some, first sight
Both merry and wild, ideals without guile, this soul,
Here in Godric's Hollow
Together we could change, the world a better place.

Such good intentions, expelled but a means to an end
To end secrecy, benevolent leaders we'd be
And oh, how that smile shines.
Together we could change and me, I could escape.
Together we could change, don't let these hopes evaporate.
Track Name: Duel and Aftermath
When I held your lifeless body, cold against my warm.
My mind a storm of guilt and fear and hurt and shame
I had a peculiar thought, that violence is something we create
by calling someone “other”

By focusing thoughts inward, I blind myself and cut off any ties and how I need to be connected
Other people may have been through this before
Other people may have been through so much more
As all of this grief becomes deep regret I can't help but hope to find some amends

Perhaps our choices show just what we are more than our abilities
Perhaps our choices show more what we are than our abilities

Open minded empathy is what you practice not just preach
The former meaning everything.
