Track Name: Unraveling
Yeah
The pressure builds beneath
I'm letting this out to stay afloat
To stay afloat
Without a doubt in my mind
im letting this go
Letting this go
It's been killing me for some time now Unaware of what's happening
Around me, I don't feel real
I am fiction
This just might be a devastation
Devastation
Around me, I don't feel real
I am fiction
the walls fall
The ground shakes beneath my feet
this is no mistake
No mistake
Suffocating me
It bursts through so clean
Clarity
Well what would you say
If you threw that all away and fell to your knees No clarity
this time
I've seen enough
This is something you just can't
Sew shut
Just can't sow shut
This just might be a devastation
Devastation
Around me, I don't feel real
I am fiction
It's been killing me for some time now Unaware of what's happening
Around me, I don't feel real
I am fiction
And I won't let it go again
I am stronger than I've been
I'll be back I know it
There's some way I'll be whole again
I've come to far to let it go
Yes it's it's hard but I know
It's worth it in the end
All the pain it ends the same
It's nothing I can really change
I'll see you in the end
Track Name: Desperate Me
Wasted time behind these eyes
You can't see the misery unless I let you in
It's too bad I'm already here
In this disguise I feel a fire raging within
Tell me I'm broken
Mix the salt right into the wound
Make sure I know you own me
This twisted mind seems to speak too soon Breathless I keep falling down
So many voices
I can't stop
I must remember who I was to become who I am Desperation
Can you hear the sound
They're calling I can't stop
Judging the lost within the found
It's too late now
It's too late now
Now I know it's gonna be a long long road
And I know that it's going to be hard
Sometimes there's a sickness within our hearts We were broken from the very start
From the very start
I've seen the fountain
I drank the water and they let me in
I should've ran I should've known it was too late I fear I've failed myself
This wasn't what I wanted it to be
I've fallen so graciously
I need to feel it bleed
I need an angel
Take me out of this misery
Now I know it's gonna be a long long road
And I know that it's going to be hard
Sometimes there's a sickness within our hearts We were broken from the very start
From the very start
I fear I've failed myself
Breathless I keep falling down
So many voices I can stop
Track Name: The Other Side
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Take me Home
What is this place Inside
That's all I hear All I say
I'm coming home To your touch
(Own page)
your eyes
I'm going back
But is it real
I can't deal with this
The fact remains
I can't see you
I could cut this tension with a knife
I could cut the skin
Unafraid
I'm Unafraid
To admit
That this is it
This is where it ends :
All the truths in life
They seem to point to the endless cycle
Yeah oh
But it matters not
I can see the spotty clouded thoughts that you suppress No
Don't let it take you over
Don't let it break you down
What's meant to be will surely come pass
it's in your hands What is this place Inside
That's all I hear All I say
I'm coming home To your touch Your eyes
I'm going back But is it real
I can't deal with this
I can't see you
I could cut this tension with a knife I could cut the skin
I could cut the skin
Track Name: Choices
I spent a million lifetimes trying to understand This pain inside
I just want it to end feeding on my insides
I feel it burn
Burn
Into this abyss I've made for myself Choices
Choices got me here
Where am I
At the bottom of a hollow tip
I'll never know
This is my choice
This is my salvation
I'm falling faster than ever before
I see the bottom now
These choices I've made
They suffocate me
These choices I'm making Suffocate me
I fall upon sleepless nights
All in the wake of regret
To see the end I fade away again
I fall upon sleepless nights
All in the wake of regret
To see the end I fade away again Where am I
At the bottom of a hollow tip
This is my choice
My salvation
I'm falling faster than ever before
I see the bottom now
It's defeating me
(Welcoming me)
I fall upon sleepless nights
All in the wake of regret
To see the end I fade away again

Track Name: Compassion
lets take it back a little bit
before i was unloving and cold
before my mind set sail into the night
if i could find a way out of this mess
i would be the very best
never taking this for granted again lines that seem to cut through my being inside my head
i watched myself fall away
and a new form take its place
but i won’t hold onto this any longer born again i am brand new
and i am stronger
fear me not
i mean no harm
I’m just drifting in the shadows
I need you to hear me
Save my pitied soul
From the gallows
Track Name: Finding Solace
truth
what lies behind the eyes of your deceived mind
blank
the thoughts you send remain blind
degenerate
hate
it’s useless you deform your yourself through negativity change
before it’s too late
gravitate yourself
the fire insides burning bright
i know i know
it might seem hard at times
but you will see the light
and I’m finding solace here
inside of my mind
so drop your worries dear
leave it all behind
This birds eye view seems to clear away the shades of grey and bring me into the light, unplagued but I've seen better days, cleansed but not sanitary. Inhaling speech to exhale and set sail onward into my mind. Complacent thoughts rearrange my way of thinking how could I have been so blind.
Opening up, I feel at peace but I'm withering
I need strength
I am not forsaken
I have walked alone
My path beaten
My feet as hard as stone
Never again will I be alone
gravitate yourself
the fire insides burning bright
i know i know
it might seem hard at times
but you will see the light
and I’m finding solace here
inside of my mind
so drop your worries dear
Track Name: 10,000 Pieces
im so sorry about everything i thought i knew help me pick the pieces back up
(Own Page)
get out of my head
you let me fall apart
you watched me fade away
i’ve been running in circles my whole life
someone let me out of this cage
Lost!
I carry all the weight and pain.
This Journey, stretches, till I see the end
Alone all my days in this crowded room, I fear the end is coming soon
i’ve nothing left to loose
this masquerade is thickening,
behind these old eyes
i have been pulled apart
the pieces lie in waste
i can’t seem to think of anything but i can damn sure feel it what have i done, what have you done
my soul I’m concealing
in the eyes of the whole trust my words this will go unnoticed ha i did it all for fun
Pull me out!
Take my hand I keep slipping away,
Sanity, Consumption,
This could be the death of me!
what does it take to kill the monster living inside
god i’m mortified
yet i feel so alive
behind these old eyes
this price it was all wrong
i have been forsaken
washed away, my soul is faking
dragging me along
down this haunted path
where did i go wrong
the fight is following me
but i can’t fucking breath anymore
hidden from my own
state of mind
i can’t believe it i’m completely blind
taming destiny i reclaim my fate
there is no fear ill fucking stand up today
i hope that you can lay beside the words that you say
i’ve made my peace
the bed nails i lay in
Pull me out!
Take my hand I keep slipping away,
Sanity, Consumption,
This could be the death of me!
what does it take to kill the monster living inside god i’m mortified
yet i feel so alive
behind these old eyes
Track Name: The Death Of Me
Run for your life
The walls are closing in
The air is getting thin
I feel my life slipping away
This will be the death of me
What does it take to kill the monster living inside
Evil eyes in their disguise
Swatting away the careless names
You've been left with only black or white
All this time you were away
I've been growing within
I've decided that it stands to say
I've been fucking changing
I did it I opened up
You told me it would be ok
You were so fucking wrong
You were wrong
Fire
All I feel is empty
Nothing left within me
I've been torn apart
So many faces
So many places
Tell me what I need
To tame the beast within me
Take me back
To the start
Where is my sanity
I'll rip you apart
Well what would you say
If you gave it all away and fell to your knees
Ahh fuck you
The clairvoyant view of a man I once knew has left traces of you, and the birth of another
I fear
Is the start of illusion
I've been waiting
You were warned
I'll have your head
I've been watching, waiting
For you to come inside
I've got a special place
Right here for you
Kill them all
Fire
