Track Name: Bones
<Bones>

Why do I feel so lost?
Running in circles over and over again
And my time is going slow

Wake up, there is no escape
The person that you betrayed is the man you were yesterday
Wake up, in this flood we are slowly sinking
I am my own worst enemy

Can you feel me?
Inside the walls they built, we are condemned to lose
Can you hear me?
The wall is paper thin, but I’m still lost within

Like a parasite, crawling underneath my skin
Every day and night, it’s forever in me
Repeating, deceiving, we are doing everything wrong to make it right
Like a parasite, forever in my bones

We all pride ourselves on being different
We struggle for nothing until the end
That’s why we feel so lost
Round and around
Again and again

Can you feel me?
Inside the walls they built, we are condemned to lose
Can you hear me?
The wall is paper thin, but I’m still lost within

Like a parasite, crawling underneath my skin
Every day and night, it’s forever in me
Repeating, deceiving, we are doing everything wrong to make it right
Like a parasite, forever in my bones

There’s a storm raging inside of me
In hopes of something could set me free
Speak of my mind, Dream with my eyes
Never alone with you by my side

Repeating, deceiving, we are doing everything wrong to make it right
Like a parasite, forever in my bones
Track Name: Waves
<Waves>

I won’t give this away,the life that I chose
Though it weighs more than i can hold on to
One chance I have on the path I led
Every step I took is one less left

Your voice is scratching at the back of my head
All hope is hanging by a threat

I was running but my bridge is burning down
I keep lying to save me from myself

Pulling me under
I can’t pretend and I’m almost giving in
Pulling me under
It won’t relent and it never breaks me

I swear i will never give this away

Roaming through a desolation with blinded eyes
Feeding ego and selfishness with courage and pride

Take me out of my misery
I can’t escape, I can’t escape
Misery
My mind is a cage

Pulling me under
I can’t pretend and I’m almost giving in
Pulling me under
It won’t relent and it never breaks me

Ignorance is Bliss
Track Name: In Descent
In Descent

I’m still believing

This is for the broken, fallen, of the uninviting moments
Secretly hiding, awaiting, and sickened

There is a world in front of you
There is a world in from of me

I’m not afraid to reinvent
I’m only afraid of losing again

Will you risk everything for the unknown, will you sail away all along
Feels like the harder I try, the deeper I fall
Find a reason to believe

A world of apathy, dividing you and me

I’m still a dreamer, it’s in my veins
I’ve learned compassion, you’ll find in my pain
The hardest part is to move on and give your all in one last song

Will you risk everything for the unknown, will you sail away all along
Feels like the harder I try, the deeper I fall
Find a reason to believe

In every word I speak and every heart i reach

Destructed, deluded, the selves we created
The difference between you and us
Is that i still give a fuck

Will you risk everything for the unknown, will you sail away all along
Feels like the harder I try, the deeper I fall
Find a reason to believe
Track Name: Worst Intentions
<Worst Intentions>

Over and over again
We are afflicted by a bitter plague within
Fight against the difference
so we can live by another season

Define love, Define Peace, Define every useless thing we need
Deny truth and our disease, then make believe

If we could turn things around and just wait to be found
Would you come back here and rescue me
If we could go back in time with nobody else
Would there be honesty left in me

Pieces by pieces, day by day
We drove ourselves into separate ways
There’s no room in our hearts for a savior
Where there is light there’s a shadow reflecting me.

Over and over again
The ground i stand is the grave i strand
Does it make me less of man
Giving up the dreams i never met

Define love, Define Peace, Define every useless thing we need
Deny truth and our disease, the curtain calls for a dying breed

I’m so sick of living and breathing for my worst intentions and everything i hated the most
I’m so done with pleading and preaching to drown this obsession and wander like a fucking ghost

Pieces by pieces, day by day.
We drove ourselves into separate ways
There’s no room in our hearts for a savior
Where there is light there’s a shadow reflecting me.

These demons rob me of my serenity
I can’t see and i can’t reach to anyone
They lay so heavy on my chest

I’m just feeling sick
I am feeling sick.

Pieces by pieces, day by day
We drove ourselves into separate ways
There’s no room in our hearts for a savior
Where there is light there’s a shadow reflecting me
Track Name: Rust
<Rust>

Do you remember when you said that this ain’t love?
We are just two vacant souls dying for someone’s touch

An empty heart, under a thin crust
But this heart is yours to rust

Tell me what does it take to earn your trust
When all i offered you was never enough

An empty heart, under a thin crust
But this heart is yours to rust

And I always knew that you’d be back for more
Tearing me apart and break me to the core
And I wish that there is someone to take my breathe away
But I can’t escape
This Heart is Yours To Rust

Rust
Track Name: You
<You>

If feels like I have been in this place before
A ghost of all my dreams is knocking on my door
And I don’t remember anything but the sadness in your eyes
If only I could dream again, I would dream of you

It was you who picked me up. It was you who broke me down.

Cause I’m fading away and I can’t see myself
Until I decay, cause it’s more than I can take
Bury me with a hollow crown before that I can hear a sound
You took a part of me I know it won’t be found

If feels like I have been through it all before
You whisper like a dagger, cutting deeper on my sore
And I’m just tired of you being tired of me and everything you ignored
If I could only dream again, will I dream of you?

It was you who picked me up. It was you who broke me down.

Cause I’m fading away and I can’t see myself
Until I decay, cause it’s more than I can take
Bury me with a hollow crown before that I can hear a sound
You took a part of me I know it won’t be found

It was you who picked me up. It was you who broke me down.
It was you who picked me up. It was you. It was you.
Track Name: Empty
Empty

When there’s nothing left, I’m all alone with my debt
Waiting for someone who will never come back
For all the devils in me, i’ll bleed them all out to see my aching innocence and honesty

I’m still here. I will always be.

There is no hope in these memories
Only my convictions
There is no sign to show you the way
I’m not content with this emptiness

Lost in the track of time
We never get by what we’ve built and what we’ve sacrificed
We are blind and we seek
Guided by lust and greed
Fulfilling our lives with no meaning

Here we go again
We bleed, we suffer then we forget
Here we go again
We are kind, we are loving, yet we ignore the rest

I’m still here. I will always be.

There is no hope in these memories
Only my convictions
There is no sign to show you the way
I’m not content with this emptiness

I bit my tongue and closed my eyes
I refused to let you in
In an ocean of regrets I am drowning
I’d rather have nothing at all

I feel this bitterness
taking over me like a noose around my neck
When will you ever learn to cherish the life that you have
Don’t live in your past
When will you every try to confront the darkness before your eyes
And let the light seep in
Track Name: Withered
Withered

Breathing in, breathing out, as I’m falling down
Can’t retain the moments lost
Can’t do this alone

If I could start it all again would you take my wounded hands
Like an anchor sinking in, and it pulls you under

Pulls you under

The season changes, another chance I crave
I’ve become too jaded to ask for your faith
When every second turns to misery, I only wish that I was someone else
So wither me away

As above, so below
As within, so without
With a blink of an eye, nothing here was mine
From life to death, it’s a journey of rush
We are floating in the universe
Ashes and dusts

Death is fate. Death is fate.

The season changes, another chance I crave
I’ve become too jaded to ask for your faith
When every second turns to misery, I only wish that I was someone else
So wither me away

Through sickness and health, your heart is my house
Throw my bones into the ocean before i melt down
Will i find relief there ?
Can’t fight over the fears
Your the only i loved, the only thing i still care

Death is fate. Death is fate.
Death is fate. Wither me away.
Track Name: The Reckoning
The Reckoning

We are all products of an endless cycle
Held captive in the palm of their hands
Lost in the resonance, no sign of discontent
I hope your blindness was heaven sent

Repeat, Repeat
You beg for an answer
But it won’t set you free

Deceive, Deceive
Praise for the vultures
Here comes your reckoning

No one here will leave unflustered

Spare me from your sympathy
Your heart is getting colder
It’s getting colder
Your pain is your only remedy to keep you restless

Burning down everything you love with the fire inside of you
You are just another dust in the wind
There’s no way to cut you loose

Repeat, Repeat
You beg for an answer
But it won’t set you free

Deceive, Deceive
Praise for the vultures
Here comes your reckoning

This is your living hell

Burning down with the fire inside of you
Your lies will never cut you loose

Spare me from your sympathy
Your heart is getting colder
It’s getting colder
Your pain is your only remedy to keep you restless
Track Name: South of The White Stone Bridge
[Instrumental]
Track Name: A Beautiful Disaster
A Beautiful Disaster

Take a look around, this is not the end, we are gonna make things worse
Take a look around, this is not the end, we fucking hate each other

Blessed with this chaos we are living in
An age of ignorance and false compliment
Arranged in numbers, painted in colors
What a beautiful disaster

How am I going to feel receptive in a place of only acceptance?
And it tastes like poison
How am I going to feel alive if the pain was never mine?
And it tastes like poison

Have I lost my faith and lost my mind?
A broken vessel carries through the night
Have I lost my strength and all my desires?
A blackened heart fulfilled with resentment

How am I going to feel receptive in a place of only acceptance?
And it tastes like poison
How am I going to feel alive if the pain was never mine?
And it tastes like poison

We’ll take comfort in the mess we made, shattered and hollow
To destruction, this road we paved will save me from this prison

Take a look around, this is not the end, we fucking hate each other

We’ll take comfort in the mess we made, shattered and hollow
To destruction, this road we paved will save me from this prison
