Track Name: 3 Feet From Peace
I’ve gone to hell and back searching for answers that do not exist.
I tore everything apart, needing a reason for feeling like this.
It left me with nothing but this hole in my chest, so I looked inside to see what I’d find… the true journey begins.
Don’t hide the truth inside of you from anyone.
I just can’t be what they want me to be. Can anyone?

I made a promise to myself that I intend to keep.
I made a promise that I will no longer live 3 feet from peace.
Track Name: The Sun, The Moon, The Truth: "Penance of Self"
You’ve heard it all before. “This time won’t be the same. You can trust me.” But you know my fucking game. Say what I have to, to get what I need. Now the evil delivered, swings back at me. Weak attempts at change carry me backward. Too little too late. Now live with the hurt. For everything I have an excuse: “but some things are not long hidden: the sun the moon the truth”. Now I live with the hurt. Live with the hurt. This is what I deserve. Break me down, the only way I’ll learn. The guilt is overwhelming. Take me out, the pain of me returns. My sins fucking destroy me. I am forced to face the fire I create and watch as it annihilates everything. Hold me back while I watch it burn. The price I pay. The suffering returns. Now the hands of fate are here to collect. Nothing here is safe until I reflect. I run from myself. No end in sight. Numb on the inside from living a lie. Now I watch as it burns. Watch as it burns. This is what I deserve. Break me down, the only way I’ll learn. The guilt is overwhelming. Take me out, the pain of me returns. My sins fucking destroy me. You can shelter yourself from the sun and you can hide from the moon. But there is nothing you can do when the truth strikes it's light on you. Now I must live with the hurt. The pain of me returns. Now I must live with the hurt.
Track Name: Married To The Noise
I found a place to belong so I went all in. I walked right in the mouth of it and never looked back again. The only thing that remains through the loss and the pain. As for me there was no other choice. I’m married to the noise. We’ve been pushed to the side while the fake walk the line. I've seen it all my life. You praise what is weak and keep carrying on. You cannot kill my will to belong. What's inside me still pushes on. I don’t care if you can’t see what I see. I’m still here. No, I don't care. I never needed a reason. Yeah, I'm still here. Through and through this has always been my truth and it can’t be killed, so I won’t let you crush what we built. Lost on you. Somewhere along the line you forgot what this meant to all of us. And I’ve had enough. I don’t care if you can’t see what I see. I’m still here. No, I don't care. I never needed a reason. Yeah, I'm still here. So keep rolling your eyes. I’d rather be dead than settle with your way of life. So I don't care what you think about me. Yeah, I'm still here. Through the loss and the pain, the only thing that remains. And I was finally heard through the pain of my voice, as for me there was no other choice. I don’t care if you can’t see what I see. I’m still here. No, I don't care. I never needed a reason. Yeah, I'm still here. So keep rolling your eyes. I’d rather be dead than settle with your way of life. So I don't care what you think about me. Yeah, I'm still here. The only thing that remains through the loss and the pain. As for me there was no other choice. I’m married to the noise.
Track Name: Delinelle
I left scars on your heart like the cracks in the concrete.
You know I feel them too.
Since the day that I left I punish myself
hoping to find some truth,
but you have to believe I just didn’t know what else to do.
And now the life that I left is leaving me too.

Set free.
You stood by me when no when else would.
Set free.
Trusted my vision when I didn’t think that I could.
Set free.

You tried desperately to keep my head above water for the sake of us.
But somewhere along the line I lost track of who I was.
I just got so tired of pulling you under, under with me.
And now that I lost you, I lost everything.
Set free.
You stood by me when no when else would.
Set free.
Trusted my vision when I didn’t think that I could.
Set free.
Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you.
Set free.
How can I live with myself and what I put you through?
This is not an apology or an admission of guilt.
This is a realization of how I destroyed all the things we’ve built.

Set free.
You stood by me when no when else would.
Set free.
Trusted my vision when I didn’t think that I could.
Set free.
Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you.
Set free.
How can I live with myself and what I put you through?
Set free.
Track Name: Cave Canem
When opening the gates of hell still isn’t enough, what else will it take?
Will we not stop until all is destroyed? Is losing everything the only way this will change?
And I ask myself is this the final warning?

And when it all opens up and starts devouring us,
I hope we see the truth, that it was me and you.
And when it all falls apart I hope we see who we are.
We can’t hide in the wake of this so you better beware.
You may have your reasons but that doesn’t make them right.
The state of humanity faces a truth with no cure in sight.
One hand out stretched desperately reaching to pull us from death.
And the other gripping the trigger, a bullet aimed right at it's head.
And still I ask myself is this the final warning?

And when it all opens up and starts devouring us,
I hope we see the truth, that it was me and you.
And when it all falls apart I hope we see who we are.
We can’t hide in wake this so you better beware.

This is the last and final warning. It’s fucking tearing us down.
This is the last and final warning. I hope you hear us now: Cave Canem.
Track Name: 56
Stay and keep me up,
and I’ll try not to drift away.
But it’s on the days I don’t pick up
that I can’t find the words or answers that you need to hear from me.
I knew we’d sink but I still jumped in.
So if you’re going me under don’t let me go.
Let’s just drown inside the things we love the most.
And you can say what you want and that's okay,
but we found the reasons that we needed to walk away.
And we knew even if it killed us we just let it pull us in.
We carried more than we could take
hoping somewhere along the line that it would all fall into place.
In the end you can’t stop the wind.
So if you’re going me under don’t let me go.
Let’s just drown inside the things we love the most.
And you can say what you want and that's okay
but we found the reasons that we needed to walk away.
I knew we’d sink but for some reason I still jumped in.
Because in the end after everything we did you can’t stop the wind.
So if you’re going me under don’t let me go.
Let’s just drown inside the things we love the most.
And you can say what you want and that's okay
but we found the reasons that we needed to walk away.
Even if we found a way it would never be the same
Track Name: The Inner Authority: "Realization of Self"
I pass the time with tediousness watching my life pass hour by hour.
These destructive patterns of life set my mind spiraling downward.
Will I allow what is expected of me to dull the sharp edge of my life?
Or will I take into my hands the use of my time?

This is not what was meant for me.
A weak existence of shallow priority.
This is not what was meant for me.
So I quiet my mind to hear the inner authority.

No more resistance.
Destroy the dominant power of fear.
Control my existence.
When I’m listening the answers are clear.
I am what I seek.
I now understand.
So from here on out
I will not seek what I am.

I will not seek what I am.
Track Name: You Are Free
Destroy the voices that cripple me.
I realize I’m in everything.
Can't change the past but what I hold in my hands is the light of myself. I finally
understand.
Death to oppression on every level.
For my life I will never settle.
Far too long I sabotaged myself,
to believe that what sets me free is up to someone else.
You yourself have to decide
will you consume or block out the light?
Your mind, the anchor or the way which you see... you just have to believe.
You are free.
No matter what they do or what they say
believe.... you are free.
The true power of you can’t be taken away
believe... you are free.
Inward and out.
You are free.
Destroy the doubt.
You are free.
No matter what they say the true power of you can’t be taken away.
Never forget: what is doesn’t have to be.
No matter what they do or what they say
believe.... you are free.
The true power of you can’t be taken away
believe... you are free.
Inward and out.
You are free.
Destroy the doubt.
You are free.
No matter what they say the true power of you can’t be taken away.
You have to decide
Track Name: Doomed By You
I’ve lost so much sleep
mistaking your voice in my ear for the voice in my head.
Your guilt stacked against me,
convinced that I’d bend.
I just rolled over and prayed for the end.
What chance do I have when you expect me to fail before I even begin?
Your exceptions can't take me out.
I'm done betting against myself.
I won’t be doomed by you.
I won't be doomed.
You had caught in a tide of self doubt
swimming against your current but I won’t fucking drown.
I can see you for what you’ve become
so don’t wonder why you’re left with no one.
What chance do I have when you expect me to fail before I even begin?
Your narrow predictions won't take me down.
I'm done betting against myself.
I won’t be doomed by you.
I won't be doomed.
You made me believe that this was about me
when the truth is, you fucking coward, you don’t have what it takes.
Track Name: Owed Nothing
I am an accident in a game of chance
so I’ll use my numbered days any way I can.
I realize I was never meant to be.
I am owed nothing.
I have spent too much time feeling sorry for myself, playing victim, thinking of nobody
else.
Giving nothing but expecting something in return, always running from the lessons I’m
supposed to learn.
I learned the hard way.
It’s just here for a second then it all goes back.
I'm missing something.
The hope that we carry is all we have.
I won’t live in fear that at any moment it can all just disappear.
I learned the hard way.
We’re just here for a second then we all go back.
I am owed nothing.
Every second of our lives is on borrowed time
so use it now cause you won’t get a second try.
Everything you’ve ever loved won’t last
and anything that we use is paid back.
I learned the hard way.
It’s just here for a second then it all goes back.
I'm missing something.
The hope that we carry is all we have.
I won’t live in fear that at any moment it can all just disappear.
I learned the hard way.
We’re just here for a second then we all go back.
In the end what we refuse to let go all becomes nothing.
What we refuse to let go all becomes nothing.
Its time we realized we were never meant to be.
We are owed nothing.
I learned the hard way.
It’s just here for a second then it all goes back.
I'm missing something.
The hope that we carry is all we have.
I won’t live in fear that at any moment it can all just disappear
Track Name: Through The Chain Link
I didn’t ask for any of this but that doesn’t mean that the sins of my father and what he passed down do not belong to me. A foundation of shit upon which we salute, blinded by greed. But the higher it builds, worse gets the view. Have we learned nothing? Nothing at all. Can not the prisoner dream to one day be free? Can not the child plagued with disease hope to end their suffering? Can not the mother who buries her son wish to see him again? It echoed in me when you said “There is no point, this is the world we live in.
Track Name: The Reach For Me: "Forgiveness of Self"
I know the things I’ve done, and most I’m proud but some I’m not.
And it's those that speak the loudest, that replay and keep me up.
Broken and alone to face this on my own.
And if I can’t learn from what I’ve done, the pain I’ve felt has been for nothing. All for nothing.
And if I can’t forgive myself for the pain I’ve caused it will always haunt me. Oh I’m so sorry. I'm so sorry.

I don’t want a second chance. I just want to understand
what led me down this path and how I can lead myself back.

I'll face this on my own

And if I can’t learn from what I’ve done, the pain I’ve felt has been for nothing. All for nothing.
And if I can’t forgive myself for the pain I’ve caused it will always haunt me. Oh I’m so sorry. I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry.

And if I can’t learn from what I’ve done, the pain I’ve felt has been for nothing. All for nothing.
And if I can’t forgive myself for the pain I’ve caused it will always haunt me.

I'm so sorry.
