Crit for crit, favours for favours.

These are lyrics to a song.

Instead of escape,
we tread paths unsignposted.
The habits you've embraced
are key to your components.

The better of you will get the better of you,
so you'll always find the time.
All you will have is all you can lose and
the truth has nothing to do with you.

If she's a king and he's a queen
then who am I to say
I'm a lonely man with a simple mind
that wants his own space.

When its my turn to die then I will stand by
the aimlessness that I've lived by.
Why should you try when its easy to lie and
eat other men to stay alive?
You take my place in the showdown, I observe with a pitiful eye. I'll humbly ask you forgiveness, a request well beyond you and I.
The lyrics are pretty decent, but I wonder what the genre is... I would like to hear the finished product.
