Track Name: Waiting To Exhale
I have this urge I can't suppress

Always a life of lies,

Adrenaline brings the chills again

Running down my spine.

I have to keep this hidden deep down inside.



Deep down inside.

Is where I hide these demons

From ourselves,

Back of my mind hiding darkness from you.
Track Name: Decisions, Incisions (Ft. Ryan Kirby of Fit For A King)
From the start,
Things can be different
Though we've been down this
Road before.

Nothing is set in stone
Feel free to stray away
Don't let your fragile bones
Keep you down
Now I know
I don't need you now.

You will see the reasons this will,
All seem so familiar
Don't let them get the best of you
Their words sharpened

(Ryan Kirby)
Don't take in what they say
Or you will never be more than the accusations
They made
Life is too short to dwell on the words that meant
Nothing
Throw down in to the dirt
Pick yourself up
Show them who they really are.

You will see the reasons this will,
All seem so familiar
Don't let them get the best of you

Their words
Sharpened,
Just to cut you down
And tear your ambitions apart.

They left me feeling like nothing
mislead and broken down
I refuse to let you overcome.

Pry their eyes wide
Show them who you really are
Never able to define.
(x2)
Track Name: Soulless
You don't know crazy
Don't dig deeper you won't like what you find
There is no way through these closed doors
Open them up
Commence the wars.

Pick yourself up
Look in my eyes
I know you're in there some where
I'll keep searching for the reassuring light.

Come find me in reality
Be the man that you wanted to be
Leave your legacy
Stop deteriorating chemically
Crawl out the hole you're in
Revive this hollow soul of sin,
The street lights go out and the moon slowly fades
But darkness is all that remains.

Wake the fuck up.
Look what you've done
Load up your gun
You can hide but you can not run from reality.
Stop living in this lucid dream.

Stop living in this lucid dream.

Now you're drowning
Mind consuming
Everyone's always fucking assuming you're gone.
It's sad to say we're confined in our own ways.
But here is where you must stay
But here is where you will stay.

Come find me in reality
Be the man that you wanted to be
Leave your legacy
Stop deteriorating chemically
Crawl out the hole you're in

Revive this hollow soul of sin,
You are outnumbered,

In this lucid dream
Now I'm done.
Track Name: Tranquilize
Give me my memories
Now's when they're needed the most
There's no place to go when every avenue's closed
These decaying bones
Will never make it home
Carry me in to the unknown.
Make me recollect and reconnect
To resurrect my sanity.

Could you make the world just stop testing me
Infecting me
Step the fuck back and let me be.

I have aligned your sin
I feel alive again
When I'm bearing a fist
This shit's meant for someone else.

There is no tomorrow there is no today.
The hour glass of life is being taken away from me.

I don't need anyone
To get my back

I don't need anyone to keep my life on track
I need my soul in tact
You're falling through the cracks
Love is what I lack
Love is what I lack.

Your lies, tranquilize me
Killing the boy you knew
Always coming through for you.

I know that I sound crazy
I know this is insane
But you'd be fucked up if you saw the shit that runs through these veins.

Hands begin quivering
With each step closer to fate
No more leaving the light on
No more opening the gate.

This angel on my shoulder says I'm already fucked
She says to give it all up, your best is never enough.
Take me back to when I held so near.
Take me back,
Take me back.
Take me back to when, I held so near.
Everything is now so fucking clear.
