Track Name: Vacant Home
Her old man is always doing the best he can. Provides for the family he loves endlessly but still they don't seem to connect. His oldest born girl is now a mother to her own but he's raising the children because she can't commit. She shuts out the world with no goodbyes to the kids.
And when you scream her name she hears nothing. The emptiness inside is growing. She can't hide from the feeling when it's written in her eyes. She's fading but she'll tell you that she's fine. He's a good man. Sure he made a few mistakes but he doesn't deserve this. No he doesn't deserve this. In his eyes she's still pretty but to the world she looks empty. It's hard for him to face the fact that "home ain't where home used to be"
You're not coming home because home ain't where home used to be.
And when you scream her name she hears nothing. The emptiness inside is growing. She can't hide from the feeling when it's written in her eyes. She's fading but she'll tell you that she's fine. When she tells you that she's fine don't believe it.
Track Name: Trapped
"Trapped" Lyrics
We said "all for one" and all but one remain. You're trapped inside an image that isn't your own. Just take a second to look back. You force your mind through a mental hell but stay stuck in the same tracks. You'll find your own sense of sanity, go on and live your own "destiny" but your ego is crippling the life that you're dying to lead. Be who you will. Take what you need but don't come to me to set you straight. Think back to a time in the past where it counted the most to you. When you think back did you ever think that you could come this far on your own. Take it back. You gotta earn what you want because it'll never be handed to you. And when you're trapped just remember that it's all for one and all for one it stays. Keep tuning in to the voices you hear. We all know you're not thinking clear and your heads all ways in the clouds from sun up to sun down. You may think you're the man now but you can't run from your own self doubt. Who you are isn't just an impression and this life is no competition. Be who you will. Take what you need but don't come to me. I can't save you from yourself. You'll get what you deserve and we won't reap the consequence for your imperfections. You gotta earn what you want because it'll never be handed to you. Think back to a time in the past where it mattered the most to us. When you think back did you ever think that you would come this far. Take it back. You gotta give to get or it will never be open to you and now you're trapped so just remember that it's all for one and all for one it stays
Track Name: Hands Of The Clock
I was selfish, had no desire, unfaithful, and uninspired
I hated myself and I grew tired of covering the truth with a smile to make it better. I needed you to help me but all I wanted was just some piece of company. I was desperate to feel something and if I did anything to hurt you I'm sorry.
I know I'm not a perfect man. I'll fix mistakes in any place I can but if I could choose to turn the hands of the clock and go back to the start of it, I wouldn't change shit.
I'm just a sorry man. I know I'm not a perfect man. I know I'm not a perfect friend. I know I'm not a perfect son. I'm just a sorry man. Dear ma, was I an honest kid? Did I ever thank you enough for all the things that you did? I know I haven't been a perfect son but if I ever seem to disappoint you I'm sorry. I'm just a sorry man.
Track Name: 21
I'm far too young to feel like I'm locked inside your holding cell. I'm too torn to heal and there's no more running from myself. Dress the wounds and let them heal. Remind yourself that you're still here. Be free from it all. Strong on your own. You'll find a way out but you need to let me go. You're in over your head but you're better than this. The pain will grow stronger if you just bare with me because I can't promise to feel the same and I know how selfish I can be to you. I can't keep pretending that love survives here when it's just killing you and me. I can't see the wrong from the right. I faced myself in the mirror and lost the fight. We've been to hell and back a few times. Somedays I wonder how I'm still alive but I survived. Don't let me fall asleep because when I sleep I dream and in my dreams I can't control the things I see. That are induced by the mark and the scar you left in me. True pain was the only thing that you could offer me but I can't see why I'm still questioning "Is this the end"
The pain you won't forget, it rings in your head like a deafening storm. If you just bare with me, I can't promise to feel the same and I know how selfish I can be to you. I can't keep pretending that love survives here when it's just killing you and me. Bare with me. I can't promise to feel the same if you just bare with me. I promise you there'll be no perfect ending if you just bare with me.
Track Name: Alone In Life
She said "Just don't forget me. Keep me locked up in your memories because the times that we shared meant the most to me". The times are changing. We're getting older and it's not the same. "If you'll be leaving, might as well forget me". Life is destroying us and time will soon erase all that we've created. I'm terrified as I watch it all fade away. I won't lie, I can't live and die here in this city. Alone in life as I watch it all fade from me. "We'll live our separate lives but please just don't forget about me". Just rest your soul. "And so now you're leaving. Things are never gonna be the same, once you shut that door that's the end. No more sleeping alone!" She hates it. "Just come home and fix this". I can't be the one to make you wait. Maybe you'll be better off without me. I'd rather throw my body to sea and let the waves crash over me. Erase my face from your memory so you don't have to forget me. I'm terrified as I watch it
Track Name: Block Out The Sun & Sleep
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Skin Deep
I may never have a chance to find a civil way to clarify how it felt seeing through a fathers eyes as he's leaving all he loves behind with no plans to come back. Where did you go? No one seems to know but was it better out there for you? Where did you go? Did you think about going home, or did time seem to forget you with no love to hold? I'm just trying to let this go. Don't be sorry for your past mistakes. I'm doing fine so don't hang your head in shame. You're no enemy just a man who couldn't be the hero that his family needs. I tried to forget your name but it never seems to fade. Where did you go? No one seems to know but was it better out there for you? Where did you go? Were you happier alone or did you wish that you could go home? The scars were sealed but in the end it's bound to break the skin. It's bound to wash away my resentments. It's still hard to let you in. Our relationship was destined to fall apart. It's bound to break the skin. The scars were sealed but in the end I still bleed your family name.
Track Name: Through My Eyes
Consider me the one you walked out on, the one you denied, the one that
you pushed to the side. Remember me the burden, the failure, or the kid.
I'm the one who will take back the time that you wasted. I put myself on the line but to you "that don't mean shit" I took your blows with a smile but you'll never be happy until you feel like you've won somehow. You don't think that I'm worth it but "I'll make damn sure I earn this". If I'm going down, I'm going down swinging and I'm taking you with me. You don't know me. I'm not the silent boy I used to be. You don't know me. I pray for the day we meet again. I, the one you looked down on, the one you despise will no longer run from the fight. Remember me a martyr, a coward, a kid. I'm the one who will take back the youth that you've stollen. Are you happy now? I hope it stings and it makes you proud. Are you happy now? I guess we'll see when you come around. I took your blows with a smile but to you "that don't mean shit". If I'm going down, I'm going down swinging and I'm taking you with me. You don't know me. I'm not the silent boy I used to be. You don't know me and I pray for the day we meet again.
Track Name: Iron Rain
I know I can't change your mind so don't think about corrupting mine. Every word you speak brings no salvation to me. You're preaching love not knowing what it means. I choose to grit my teeth and not say a damn thing because you and I will never share the same beliefs. If you won't compromise, try your best to understand that no matter what it is love is love. I don't care about your "truths". My only care is leaving you to be alone with your old twisted views. Don't act like we are the ones confused. I've been quiet all this time. Left it dwelling in my mind but your bitterness made me resort to this and I'll tell you, if I felt wrong then these are consequences that I'm willing to accept so save your breath. You and I won't see eye to eye. You claim "truth is truth" but I'm not buying. If you don't feel the same way then what's the point of trying. Now's your time, resign. You have the choice in life to reform your own mind, to live and love. Open up your mind, or resign. I don't care about your "truths". My only care is leaving you to be alone with your own solitude to find a heart somewhere inside. Your prying eyes don't dare to see difference when this modern life is no longer resistant. A single mind, so vague but still vain. Don't hate what you fear because true love is all the same. (At least to me)

Track Name: Growing Numb
Open your mouth and speak. I see you hide your face in the crowd. Holding your guard up and your head down. No trust for the people around because when you speak no one hears you. Your life's been nothing but a winding road and you have nothing to hold on to. But when it all comes down crashing you'll wish that you just would have spoke. You choked. "I just wish someone could understand that it's hard to speak when it seems that no one gives a fuck about me. No more pride, numb me from the pain inside. No more lies, save me from the flaws in my life that I can't seem to hide". And everyday is a different defeat. Every mile you have failed to reach. Every smile had its own rightful meaning but now it means nothing to you. "I just wish someone could understand that it's hard to speak when it seems that no one gives a fuck about me". You're growing numb. Still suffering. Still choking on the words that you could never say. Silence is your enemy. "No more pride, numb me from the pain inside. No more lies, save me from the flaws in my life that I can't seem to hide". Still suffering. Still choking on the words that you could never say. Silence is your enemy.
