Track Name: Disappear
I should have seen this from the start
I should have always been on my own
Now it’s perfectly clearI never should have stayed here
I should have just disappeared
The time that we have spent apart
Has made me realize I am torn
Between the person I was
Who I wanted to be
And the one I mourn
Now I sit here in the dark
In a city that is not my own
There’s a roof over me
And four walls to keep me away from me cold
The disappointment in myself
Is more than you’ll ever know
And more than I show
And It’s perfectly clear
I shouldn’t be here
I should just disappear
Take me
And bury me up to my neck and walk away
I deserve what’s coming to me
I just wanted to feel love
To be loved
I should have seen this from the start
I should have always been on my own
You’ve made it perfectly clear
I never shouldn’t be here
Now I’ll just disappear
Track Name: Be Good
In time the fever that has kept you weak
Will have full on taken it’s toll
It’s taken away and it’s taken it’s shape
In the illusion that you still hold
Nothing is ok
Nothing has changed and it’s all too familiar
So we curl up and hide from all that’s outside
Closed shades and locked up doors
It’s true
It’s loud
It’s hard
And it’s all I know
I can’t take anymore
I just want out right now
I had assumed I would have been gone by now
But the ship has weathered the storm
And the feeling of defeat
That lies underneath is still alive and on it’s course
I’m destroyed
I have nothing but I speak of the truth as I see fit
I have nothing to lose I have nothing to gain
I’m at the whim of what I’ve retained
Be good
Be loud
Hands up to the sky and shout
At the top of your lungs until the floor falls out
Track Name: You Will Die
Stay in the dark waiting
Don’t risk anymore
When the point of no return is just steps down the road
Just in case you got tripped up along the way
Wasting our daylight
We should be ashamed
The problems we face are all one in the same
And we take for granted all that we waste
But that constant remains
We die either way
Stay in the dark
Sit and wait
Abandon the risk
Accept it’s the same
And complain you lost yourself along the way
Stop wasting daylight
Don’t be ashamed
Take back what’s left
And erase what’s engrained
And make the best of what’s there today
One thing stays the same
We die either way
Invite in the warmth if it follows you home
Take no love for granted
Grab it and hold it today
It’s staring you right in the face
But one constant remains
We’ll die either way
Track Name: No Love
Drag me down
Take me out
Drag me
Back down and around and around
You don’t take blame even though it’s all your fault
Now I’ve risen up
Now I’ve given up
Dragged down
Don’t think I’m unaware of why all of this has faded away
Don’t think I’m so naive I would try to pass off blame
I never tried to
Yeah I wash my hands of you tonight
There is nothing I can say that’s ever going to make it right
Dragged down
Track Name: Take Me Away
Give me distance
Give me patience
Give me time
Or I’ll never return from this place
I’ll never find
What I lost
What I left
While I was blind
I’m trying to look for redemption and look for a sign
But I’m broken
Out of line
Asking for more than I give
The bottom line is being alone
I deserve what I’ve done to myself
Not afraid of what’s coming to me I’m already in Hell
And it’s all over now
And I’ll never see how
I can come back to myself and start again
I’m down on the floor
Please take me away
Somebody show me the way
Somebody save me today
Take me away
Tell me you’re on your way
Tell me you’re coming today
Hold me and tell me it’s all ok
Track Name: Tear Me Apart
Start tearing me apart
Stop holding it all in
Run red and let the anger roll through your veins
Start tearing me apart
It’s what you wanted
I deserve everything that’s on it’s way
Take the fact that you’re sweating in a fire
And you’re glowing red
Don’t stop until you’re done and everything in your path is dead
Start tearing me apart
Stop holding it all in
This is your chance
Take it while I’m fully restrained
Start cutting me up
It’s what you wanted
And erase any good that’s ever come from me
Track Name: Trash It
We’re all running out of time
We’re running on empty
Now we’re shaking loose change in the palm of our hands
I want to leave I want to be clean
I want to give it up
And I want to make clear that I have taken what I have and I’ve thrown it all away
I’m not making an excuse
I’m not trying to downplay
I’m not here to try and justify the things I’ve said
My last chance to change what you see
I’ve got a letter that you’re never going to read
And I am preparing to be what
I am now capable to see
I’ve prepared to release myself
Track Name: Let It All
I’m unimpressed
I’m not ashamed
I made the change and I’ve come to a place today
I am all my own
I walked down a path that was overgrown
But I cleared it out and carried away
All of the things that I wanted to keep me safe
I put the rest on hold
It’s all just noise
It all got old
Run away and never look back
Let it fade in
Let it all go black
I’m not stressed
I’m not phased
I took control of the hell that’s taken space
Inside for far too long
Pulling my strings
Singing my songs
Keeping me sick
Keeping me drained
Taking away any good that’s there for me
And I missed somehow
We’re living in a world that will crumble and fall
Run away never look back
Don’t be afraid it’s not an attack
Track Name: Severe Errand
I can’t afford
To be understated
I can’t ignore I’m under appreciated
I can’t restore
What cannot be recreated
And there is nothing more that can be done to save this
I’d like to believe
I can get my feet on the ground
Until it’s clear
I’ll stop coming around
I’ll pick it up off the ground
And take it with me
I’ll stop coming around
Track Name: Locking Eyes
Tell the truth or tell a lie
Say anything to justify all you
Have held inside all of your life
For fear of what woulds come
If you follow through
You’ve walked away a thousand times
I always wound up locking eyes on you
It’s finally settles in this time
The feeling of knowing I lost you
Tell the truth or tell a lie
Say anything to nullify all you
Had promised you would rectify
And make good while you watch it all fall through
I know it’s all my fault
I know I deserve it all
I lost you
If there was a chance
If there was a time
If I didn’t blink
If I didn’t lie
You never changed
Neither did I
I lost you
Track Name: Death
