Track Name: Track 1
Losing you
has left me with nothing to hold on too.
all the support, the gratification, I feel like I missed the chance to say thank you.

I can only say, its just gotten harder.
I haven't healed with the days becoming farther away
I can only say
I've come to realize
I find it hard to accept
all the things that we're supposed to expect.
I've come to terms
with the simple fact
That I won't ever feel completely intact.

I've been here
wanting more.

I accepted the silence
I trusted your defiance
should I have called?
should I have called?

I waited for hours
feeling no power.
was it my fault?
was it my fault?

My heart felt so heavy
and that didn't tell me.
It's been so long
It's been so long.

The guilt is inside me
but I remember trying.
It's been so long.

I've been here.
Wanting more.
On monday I was stuck in bed.
With all these thoughts running through my head.
By friday, I wished I was dead.
Just to bring you back here instead.
But I'll remember all the great things you said.
and so will the people you touched, that I never met.
Track Name: Track 2
With these dead eyes, embedded in my face
I stare towards the grey
slowly finding solace in what is just okay.
Unable to cope with constant dismay
I've learned to let it pass on after every single day.
Because the things we say
and the games we play
No longer matter when time shows us the way.

I've dreamed and I've dreamed and I've dreamed
but most importantly I've screamed.

I've fought the thoughts that surge through me like electricity to a machine.
Some said evolve, some said give up, and others tell me "good luck"
but I don't give a fuck because I know the search well just not where to find it.

and heaven's just far enough to ignore, like before
broken down, defeated, I cant see whats in store, like before.
and when I try to sleep at night its a war, like before
imaginary battles, I cant settle the score, like before
Track Name: Track 3
Wake me up. It never ends.
There's no direction in the time we spend.
Inhuman addiction to submission, and it never ends.
And your heart hits the floor, you lie awake. Is this your fate?

Reaching out to the things that you love
Thinking it's all wrong
Running through life unable to see
another one

Confronted
I'll decide
to take what I love
and run and hide.
Wake me up. It never ends.
No direction in the time we spend.

Calling out to the stars, I hope you hear it too.
Looking down from the top, I see the things you do.
Unable to make it stop, I'll let you move on too.
Calling out to the stars, I hope you hear it too.

I'll stay here.
They'll disappear
All of my fears
Remaining clear
Keep moving on.
and everyones gone.
Communication drawn
All of my hope gone.
Track Name: Track 4
I can the scars on your face
only giving me a taste
of who you used to be, who you try to flee.
You're looking for an escape
from a fate defined, supported by, so much hate.

Lay down your angry soul
the pain doesn't have to make you whole.
and I know its building inside you
and I know you're just trying to find you
but you're not gonna win if you cannot even survive you

I want to tell you.
that it will be okay.
but my life has become so mundane
but I'd never hope for yours to be the same.
You're looking for an escape
from a fate defined and supported by, so much hate.

Remember, my concern.
Remember, I was there.

Lay down your angry soul
the pain doesn't have to make you whole.
and I know its building inside you
and I know you're just trying to find you
but you're not gonna win if you cannot even survive you
Why are we so good at hiding our hearts, without willing to build a bridge?
Track Name: Track 5
Everything will always hurt
when you have no self worth
so quick to give the shirt, off your back
you won't need it, cause you're not gonna last
Looking back thinking time goes fast
and if thats the case then why even take on the task,
of building hope
when it's all just been a downward slope.

I've imagined the grave
It comes together, and I feel so safe.
(I hope you'll stay)
and I hope you know there's no blame.
I'm holding out for, the words you didn't say.

I'm isolated here, all alone
I've never felt so at home.

Always fighting this inner struggle.
If I could have give this to someone you loved, I loved, I would have.
Guilt builds inside of me.
I didn't ask for this second chance.
I'm still here.
