Track Name: Culprit
I am alone, the catalyst of my own isolation and it’s controlling every, aspect of me. Dismal is my past and present. I come with a handful of regret. Awaiting my demise, searching for an outlet to embrace this feeling, the transient to disaster. Douse me in the waves of oil, created by the impact of my mistakes. Misfortune seems to come and go, but my lack of willpower is all i know. I’m powerless to stop you, this incarnate doubt inside me. Incinerate all I know, ascend to nothing. Light the match. Bliss behind oblivion, I sought nothing but became everything. Eroded, roots revealed left withering in the sun like an exposed wound. Wading in and out of consciousness left wondering, awaiting My Demise, searching for an outlet to embrace this feeling. I”ll take pride in my failures, they’ve already shaped me, forever changed me. I can’t live up to your standards. There’s only solace in nothingness and I’ll pursue it forever. I can continue on like and although this path looks bleak I have found all I need. I’ve embraced reality. There are no solutions, tried and true until expiration. Searching for an outlet To embrace this feeling. I'll take pride in my failures, they’ve already shaped me, forever changed me. I am alone, the catalyst of my own isolation and it’s controlling every aspect of me. Dismal is my past and present, I come with a handful of regret. If contrast defines me then I’m blurred like mud.
Track Name: Victim
A life misguided and torn between failures and expectations. How can I succeed in a place devoid of empathy and lost in greed. Always held to standards I could never achieve. This place reaps its own bounty, a system of debt. Sign off on your own death. They want to suck you dry. Leeches in disguise. Convinced of what is right. Asked to pick a side. It’s your own life. Self resentment seemed to wash over me. But it’s so clear now I was never the real me. Things will never come easily, but at least I know I can stand on my own feet. Can we recognize the problem and erase the lines that divide . It’s so easy to turn a blind eye, to the things we know need to change. Our lives misguided and torn between failures and expectations Surrounded by purposelessness bodies filled with disdain and neglect Clawing at the walls we constructed, the barrier between what's real and what we’ve assumed. They want to suck you dry they're leeches in disguise but it’s your own life.
Track Name: Declined Spirits
A Foundation built on sinking ground Cannot stand against these waves of doubt, It’s Shaking the wind. The storm picks up as glass starts to break, Shingles fly into a dark sky, the air is thick as I start to cave in. Declined Spirits ran through my head. If loss is all i’ve got I’ll make do and mend another shattered mind left to exist and then end. Take this day by day attempt to brave the storm make the choice to leave this all behind. I can keep up for so long,
Until, a spark ignites my chest, I found myself Left with Regret. Is life supposed to go like this? I can’t conceive a better way. Declined Spirits ran through my head. If loss is all i’ve got I’ll make do and mend Another shattered mind left to exist and then end. A single moment left to wonder, was there any purpose in you don’t look at the sky don’t deny the truth, You’re alone, Stop running from a noose. If words were daggers then they’ve ripped the seams Left bleeding out
I watched my blood turn blue the earth turns slowly, existence means nothing Life continues on whether or not you want it to.
Track Name: The Stained Glass
Stuck to this anchor, chained to our wrists. Sinking further from love and why we exist. Deluded morals grabbing hold of the truth leaving us Disbanded From all we knew, fear you brothers and sisters, for they are not like you. (Not like the truth) All you fucking want is complacency. It’s easier to accept things as they are Will you sit and watch this world fall apart?
Objectified, told what you want hear sit comfortably as you disappear. There needs to be
there needs to be a voice of change so long as you can hear this I’ll stand up for you. There is no coming back after this, so make your voices count. Life stops for no one it’s time to transcend what you fear. Am I altruistic or falling apart. It’s true where crabs in a bucket, and opportunists at heart. Defined by habit, weighed down by the ones we love. All the things we seem to need are what's tearing us apart. (Tearing us apart) Bound to this anchor, the truth we held has slipped away. Complacency has taken hold we’re all just fading into grey. Fear your brothers and sisters for the are not like you (Not like the truth) Deluded morals have grabbed a hold, we’ve been left disbanded from all we knew.
Track Name: Sacred Forever
A garden made for lust and growing greed,Consumer's paradise
where nothing is green Like gangrene on skin, we’re the plague on this place rotting from within.
(Ignore) What you say you are it’s always easier to lie (Become) What you despise, divert the blame as the world dies. Was this all a lie, consume Aimlessly until we can’t survive Balance, Love they’ve passed us by. Shadows dancing on machines that sucked the earth dry. Have we gone to far to recognize damnation, Things held sacred forever lost in translation. (ignore)What you say you are it’s easier to lie (Become) What you despise, divert the blame as the world dies Is the truth Ringing in your head, the doubt in the back of your mind Comes out when the facade subsides We can’t see the solution, when we claw at each other's eyes. This is not the solution, Becoming what we despise (ignore) What you say you are it’s easier to lie (Become) What you despise, divert the blame as the world dies Is the truth Ringing in your head, the doubt in the back of your mind Comes out when the facade subsides. We claim to be the kings, but we’re the plague on this place rotting from within.

Of Nature Beyond Compare
Reality comes coursing through me
Infecting my thoughts and shaping my world.
Track Name: Disdain
We should have learned by now that we all make our own choices.The mistakes we make will have a lasting effect for days to come, But we all know, the toughest part of life Is taking your own advice. So stop making all the excuses under the sun and get yourself together. We can't just sit here and waste our lives without progressing. Every single day you live you need to push your boundaries, test your comfort zone and grow. Too many times I've let others bring me down, Well no more. No more second chances your words cannot change your actions. How can you expect this from anyone, no more second chances I'm surprised how long this lasted. For me to be fooled and never catch it. The cataclysm in our minds has been slipping away, Integrity is lost, let them rot. It's time to move on And Drop dead weight. You need to realize you've wasted your time It's time to move on And Drop dead weight. Cut the chord Remove the burden It will get better from here on out. Many things have made me doubt But the best things I've done Is leave behind what never put me ahead and do what's best for me Best for me Let them rot, Drop dead weight.
Track Name: Cancer In The Room
Rationalized greed masked as empathy. Your smile was so promising, a thief dressed like a king. Lies begin to grow their own teeth and nails. A mannequin in human form, a plastic soul in a plastic world. It’s hard to keep up with the times, when I don’t want to open my eyes. Take the world for granted, that’s all you can do. Consumption with no end or intent. This is getting to the climax, the inevitable end. (When there’s nothing Left) Does it feel good to live for yourself? Denial has such sweet taste. We can ignore the cancer in the room But it’s seeping into you. We can keep hiding from virtue But time will take us. It’s hard to keep up with the times When I don't want to open my eyes. It’s hard to keep up with the times When I don't want to. You’re a tumor on this earth, you left everyone behind. Traded love for all you’ve gained and left with no spine It’s hard to accept this world i’ve come to know, But I take solace in knowing that you are hollow. It’s hard to keep up with the times when I don't want to open my eyes. It’s hard to keep up with the times when I don't want to. We can ignore the cancer in the room But it’s seeping into you. We can keep hiding from virtue but time will take us.
Track Name: Persist
Constantly sewing together your own foundation just prolonging the inevitable. This is the part where I find a new low and even with all of these changes I made I still feel worse than I did before So what did I really change? The uncertainty makes me want to feel nothing at all nothing at all, but I know but I know I can get through this. The storm will pass and i will rebuild what was taken from me. All that was taken from me Brick by brick Stone by stone I will rebuild what was stolen I will rebuild what was taken from me All that I once had I will be stronger than ever before Unstoppable A force to be reckoned with Unstoppable A force to be reckoned with I would rather find distraction Than engulf myself in pain The fire is rising It's building and climbing Engulf myself in flames This is the part where I find a new low And even with all of these changes I made I still feel worse than I did before So what did I really change? Learn to live with this bearing weight and cloud above my head Because this, this is the way it stands to be and what I must deal with and deal with alone And at last I've come to terms with what lies ahead but I refuse to let it be There may be things out of my control but they will not run my life Everyday is just a struggle to feel anything but pain When will it end Will this darkness descend And what from this will I gain Learn to live with this bearing weight and cloud above my head
Because this, this is the way it stands to be and what I must deal with and deal with alone.
Track Name: Drifting
Jaded, left responsible for all the things that, I cannot control. I’m Drifting, Will I ever find a home. It seems like I’m forgetting all I know And breaking out from all the things that have held me down (Held me Down). For every day that I’ve lived with doubt even though it seems that things will never change I can be the catalyst, I can bear this pain. I tried to be my own voice of reason but doubt is here, it’s alive and breathing Endurance wanes in time We’re all consumed by our minds. jaded, left responsible for all the things that, I cannot control I’m Drifting, Will I ever find a home. It seems like I’m forgetting all I know. (Forgetting all I know) Forgive me, for attempting to find some type of connection And losing what I already had.
I’m drifting into indifference, I’ve embraced the process and watched time collapse. Forget. Drifting, Will I ever find a home.
