Track Name: Balance
Everyday we see so many suffering. We watch old friends end up right in the arms of misery's company. We watch those we love get ripped from our hands before we had a chance to set them free. It's a constant struggle to remain standing, jaded, restless, but im still standing on my own feet.
Track Name: With Warning
Fuck this. I'm sick of waiting, wondering where you've been. I'm sick of hoping that things work out when i knew they never would. I'm sick of opening my eyes and watching you destroy your life. I'm sick of sifting through the lies and being mad about the shit you did in the past. I should've known that you're not coming home.You're too weak to stand up. Too ashamed to show your face. You can hide away but the burden remains. You made a choice you'll forever regret. You made a promise but you seem to forget. How can you look yourself in the eyes when you know the thought is killing you inside? It kills you inside. Here i am, falling for the things i stood agiainst but every time i walk away you haunt my every memory. Every line you ever crossed, every friendship that you lost, did i ever up and leave without warning? I wont forget what you said to me "I can't do this alone. I need you now more than ever before" and i trusted you. But no longer will i fall for it. I dont need you because i can do this alone. I dont need you. You made a choice you'll forever regret. You made a promise but you seem to forget. How can you look yourself in the eyes when you know it kills you inside?
Track Name: Halfhearted
Given a chance to make it end, you fail to make a stand and you are never content. I lost track of all the time i've spent and the time i've wasted. Never content. So sick of feeling suffocated. Never content but you make no attempt to make a change. Never content. Until then you'll be angry. So do something. If you stay trapped in your own shell, you'll never be content with yourself. Apathy is a downfall but I, I'm not standing here for nothing at all. No, I'm not standing here for nothing at all. You have the chance to make it end but you fail to make a stand. Once again, you are never content. I lost track of all the time i've spent and the time i've wasted. Never content. So sick of feeling suffocated. Never content but you make no attempt to make a change. Never content. Until then you'll keep searching for peace. Stay trapped in your own shell, you'll never be content with yourself. Apathy is your downfall. You're standing here for nothing at all. Stay trapped in your own shell, you'll never be content with yourself. Figure it out. Apathy is a downfall but i'm not standing here for nothing at all.
Track Name: Hollow
I know you never had the strength to reveal a life that wasn't broken. And I understand the strength it takes to rebuild and try to mend the pieces together. You've seen more shit and more pain then many men. And when no one cared for you, I let you in. I watched you bury your head in your hands and I'm here to let you know I understand. I understand what it takes to move on and put the past away. So put the past away. Our lives were so much the same. The only differences now are the hopes and opportunities. But if you try your strength will regain. You have to pull this one through for you and your family because you could turn it around. Turn this around.I know you never had the strength to reveal a love that was promised. And I understand the strength it takes to rebuild or burn it down and start all over. (At least know I understand) I've been let down by many friends and I was hoping you weren't them. These days I know where my trust is. But aside from this I understand. At least know I understand. I know there's hope inside you man. I know there's hope you just need to find it.
Track Name: New Note
It's all in your mind. So show your fear on your own time and keep it out of my sight. I'll tell you now that there is no compromise. Just like the sun we will rise. Don't spend your time investing all you have into another life. It's something you can't afford. So flip your lock and open, ambition's at your door. I spent most of my twenty years afraid of moving on. And with passion and my mothers help, i chose to follow a dream, and made a man of myself. You, you only take what you're handed because you can't think straight on your own. You take things for granted and act like you never knew. Maybe you'll never know. So fucking open your eyes. Just like the sun we will rise. It's in my mind. I toss and turn in my bed thinking of everything. I'll keep my eyes straight ahead holding the flame tight. You told me that you'd give anything up. You told me that it's the one thing you've always dreamed of. In time there's no compromise. So fucking open your eyes. You, you're the one to take everything for granted. How's it coming along? Please tell me. What's on your mind? I'll tell you mine, no compromise.
Track Name: Collapse
He's given up on everything. He'd rather throw it away then feel the pain that life dealt him. And it hurts to see so many less fortunate, and you choose to leave. Greed fuels the anger within me. Selfishness won't be forgiven. And in your heart loneliness will not be forgotten. You chose the fate of this family and left a blood line of hatred. How could you let this be? Your family. What were you thinking? In this life we lose enough. So the fact that i'm still waking up is what i'm thankful of. I would never give it up like you. I'm not letting go, I will withstand it. And if only love could truly cure the pain then maybe he would've stayed and things would be different. Helpless. You left them all helpless. But you couldn't see that what goes around, it comes back around at me. And it comes fierce. I'm helpless. We will remember you as a selfish man or we won't remember you. And it will not be forgiven.
Track Name: Counterfeit
I saw something more that no one else can see. I found peace in sure tragedy. And when others said "Its not your place. You don't belong". I bit my tongue, bottled it up and swallowed. My mistake for believing. I blame myself for this mess I made. In time i've seen enough to know that your words, they hold no truth. There's nothing left to hold on to. I should've seen it from the start but i fucked up and i went all in for nothing. I didn't know that there was no sense of stability. I put my faith in only to be sadly mistaken. i can't believe you're so far from what you claim to be. Each time you'll see, you'll watch reality fold. And all the lies that you told, you'll pay the price for it all because this shit is getting old. I felt something more that no one else could feel. I had hopes for something real. And i can take this time to justify, or leave the pieces on the floor still scattered and broken. I had hopes for something real. I hoped for something real. My mistake for believing. I blame myself for the mess i made. In time i've seen enough to know. In time i've seen enough but I'd still wait for you. How can i put my faith in anything? It's hard to trust any one anymore. It's all a fucking lie and i'm sadly mistaken. I should've known, I can't believe i fell for it. Never again will i let you in.
Track Name: Truth & Consequence
With every choice you make you'll pay the consequence. One simple mistake could make this path come to an end. Everything I ever loved slowly slips away. I'm trying not to lose my grip but the weight is overwhelming. Confusion has me by my throat clenching tighter everyday. What's left to sacrifice for me to be free? Everyday i think about this choice I've made, and if it's right for me. I might never know because it's tough to say. But these opportunities may only come up once within this lifetime. This is a part of me, my story's ending, and it reigns over all. You feel deprived when you sit on the sidelines or watch the ones you love slip away as the days go by. When all you wanted was a place to call your own. But how can you settle when your looking for it all alone. You take a step and think to yourself "Why am I falling in the tracks behind everyone else?" You look in the mirror, all satisfaction is gone, and all you want is to feel content but what went wrong? Guilt's sinking in. When you leave there's always something you'll be missing. I can't pretend that everything works out the way you want it. But I'll make believe that there's a light ahead of this darkness. Every choice has a consequence. I've heard it over and over again but nothing is changing. I have nothing left to sacrifice so could you tell me what went wrong?
Track Name: Downpour
Say goodbye. I'm giving up because I get lost from all the tension in this room that's building up. I've been sitting in one place for far too long. Don't get me wrong I love my home but it's grey and miserable. This state of mind is all i've ever known. An empty face in every place I go. Every where i go all I see is constant downpour. Everything that I once loved "Its never giving up" I lost it in this place. It holds true pain and it's scarred within my skin so take me away. I lost my faith right in this place. It's all i've ever known. I lost my faith in here it holds true pain and these skies they cloud my mind. All I see is constant downpour. I can't find peace no matter where i go. This fucking downpour is never giving up.
Track Name: Solitary
Conscious, clear, and gaining ground. Find your path and walk it out. If this road is sinking under me i won't fold my hands or break to my knees. Which path to go? What to believe? It never mattered because i know there's something here for me. I wake up everyday disappointed because it's always the same. Same weary head, same empty bed. Nothing is changing. I lost control between the past i had and this path i chose to lead. But If the road ahead is "Solitary" I'm not afraid to walk alone.
