Track Name: Silence
My windows have been boarded - darkness settles in
Of all these things inside, nothing new begins
Patience is running out now, mothers hide your kids
This storm will ensue regardless of your sins

Let hate rain down
Crush my will to breathe
Bury me under concrete - waste away as I fade
Escape this dungeon - hammer down the walls that keep me in

Nothing is spoken, still deafening ensues
Despite my preparation, water's leaking though
The stake laid in that board instead nailed through me
A broken soul ensures it stays hammered in deep

Let hate rain down
Crush my will to breathe
Bury me under concrete - waste away as I fade
Escape this dungeon - hammer down the walls that keep me in

They gave me everything I could not give myself
Didn't even have to show them respect
I'll live life my way - never grow up
Drowning both tigers

Let hate rain down
Crush my will to breathe
Bury me under concrete - waste away as I fade
Escape this dungeon - hammer down the walls that keep me in
Track Name: The End
If whisky makes you reminisce and responsibility keeps you awake
How much more do you think you could continue to take?
Keep pushing yourself till you see the end
I have nothing more that I could lend

A shadow's drawn in front of me, keeps me from seeing the light
Not sure which way it's headed, I'll have to duck into the night

The end feels near
I must embrace that fear
I am free

The flame is dwindling now and this is starting to make sense
Uncertainty lies ahead but I know I must hurdle this trench

The end feels near
I must embrace that fear
I am free
Track Name: Restricting Angels
The angels and the vixens of the west
Fill me with the hope that I'll be happy like the rest
But even if I know it's false, I'll stand with no intent to crawl
And break the barrier of my sentiment

(Never look back) Reminiscing leads nowhere
(Give up your past) There's more for you out there
Live to the fullest, see things I never thought would take me home

You left to shine your light somewhere else
Angels shouldn't be restricted to monsters like myself
But even if you fall apart, I'll stand by you through light and dark
I wish I could reciprocate your gift

(Never look back) Reminiscing leads nowhere
(Give up your past) There's more for you out there
Live to the fullest, see things I never thought would take me home

My dream spoke to me
Fear and prosperity
Do I accept this truth?
Or keep living this lie?

(Never look back) Reminiscing leads nowhere
(Give up your past) There's more for you out there
Live to the fullest, see things I never thought would take me home
Track Name: Fall Apart
For all the wrong I've done in my life
I've seen so little consequence
One day knowing that I'll what I deserve
Lose everything and fall apart
I couldn't be the person I wanted to be
Had the choice but ended up acting so devilishly
Now I'm sitting here analyzing my faults
I know how to change but I'm avoiding those results

Fall Apart

A monster, a devil, a piece - call me what you will
My heart is so cold, I've never felt the chill
Surrounded by people knowing I'll soon be alone
When the only interests I have are to serve my own
And I had the chance to give what I have
Still my back is turned and arms are crossed
Far beneath the better angels that I know
My self-opinion has never been so low

Fall Apart
Track Name: Kerosene
Burning up in the heat of night and then crumbled down by day
This life has never shown him any other way
Bound to the construct of letting others down
He can't trust anyone - much less himself

Clutching tight to his pain - he's never letting go
Still can't find a single reason to let his face show

She looked down on the dirty ruins of the innocent boy that she once knew
He couldn't care less if this life kills him, for without it he'd have nothing left

Amidst the chaos that's settled in his mind
Up to nothing here - he's just killing time
Too many unfinished thoughts and regrets all the same
Looking back on the life he had - all he feels is shame

Clutching tight to his pain - he's never letting go
Still can't find a single reason to let his face show
He's really let himself go - intellectually
Somewhere between young and old - shy and bold - dying endlessly

The man made of kerosene
Has invisible scars nobody can see
His anger and depression force him to hide
And he can't have anyone by his side

Clutching tight to his pain - he's never letting go
Still can't find a single reason to let his face show
He's really let himself go - intellectually
Somewhere between young and old - shy and bold - dying endlessly

She looked down on the dirty ruins of the innocent boy that she once knew
He couldn't care less if this life kills him, for without it he'd have nothing left
Track Name: When the Music Dies
When the music dies and the passion fades
When the wheels quit rolling and you're stuck at home another day
You've gone further than you thought you ever could
And the thrill ended ages ago

You run - only to slip and fall
You're lost - but you're not letting go
You've seen - something here before
Inspiration - the one thing that keeps you whole

Hear that old song - as I look up to the sky
Talk to my friends - that never left my side
Look back at all - the obstacles that I have passed
Know deep inside - that these words will not be my last

What once made you happy and fulfilled
Is slowly becoming just a memory
And I don't want to ever forget this
When memories are all I'll ever have

You run - only to slip and fall
You're lost - but you're not letting go
You've seen - something here before
Inspiration - the one thing that keeps you whole

Hear that old song - as I look up to the sky
Talk to my friends - that never left my side
Look back at all - the obstacles that I have passed
Know deep inside - that these words will not be my last
Track Name: Paths
Failure - it cuts me down to the bone
Control - I'm losing it by the day
Looking back at what I gave up and held onto
Now with these years having passed by

I've narrowed myself down to this
And now I can't find expression

I gathered up all the eggs that I could find
Then I lost the only basket that I had
All I picked up along the way were some vices
Going all in only to be called out

I've narrowed myself down to this
And now I can't find expression

The conflict in my head
Between something I said
And what I really meant
Do you still feel the same?
Greener grass and ennui
Are all that I see
Only uncertainty prevails

Mama, I'm afraid I'm dying
And you know I'm not yet 27
My paths in life were unconventional
And now I'm scared that I've strayed too far to find my way back home

I've narrowed myself down to this
Track Name: Break Out
Get me out of this place, I can't take this anymore
I've been trapped so long, I'm getting sick, I need some air
Though it's shown me comfort, I need to break out and spread my shadow elsewhere
Give me some release, reveal the face, intoxicate myself with the new scent

Stand
Walk
Grow
Show me that you can let go

Since I've been so lost I almost forgot what I held closely to my
Heart: providing truth that I will use to shine the light across my
Path, I've never strayed nor looked away I never alternated my
Chance to give it all and not to fall but stand strong amongst myself

Stand
Walk
Grow
Show me that you can let go
Track Name: The Bottom
If I'm broken, how can I function in a place where everyone is operational?
Nobody holds on to the broken, they get discarded into the streets
Painted blue and no one else has a clue how cold the bottom really is
To be down and looked down upon is so melancholy

Nothing seems more arduous than the years that lie in front of you
How will I ever overcome such great heights and terrain?
This seems so impossible standing at the base, at the foot of it all
How will I overcome what's still in front of me?

Too many hours, my fingers are callused from the six strings
I have been home for long enough to put my thoughts into order
And I know that this will break me, but I'm certain my lonesome will save me
I need this time to be by myself

And I don't want to leave my home for fear of being trampled on or left behind
Why can you not see how much I fucking need this?
