Track Name: Broken Lines
Help me
I'm falling further
Save me
I'm going under
Help me
I'm falling further
Save me
I'm falling fast into the ground

I won't succumb to you
Pedal to the metal when you can't fucking settle
My abilty to inhale is way above your level
The days running wild, blinded, sitting with a smile
Left me caught in this cycle, ain't been right for a while
Paranoid can't sleep I've been up for a while
Reminiscing on life, wish I never ran wild

I need to know
What it's like to be alive
My aching bones
I need to survive
What is this meaning behind these broken lines?
If I was to make it out, would you still be by my side?

I don't know what to do
when everything around me is swallowing me
Eating me alive
But where can I go?
I need to know

What can I do to survive?
I just need to see, the man that I will be

I need to know
What it's like to be alive
My aching bones, I need to survive
What is this meaning behind these broken lines?
If I was to make it out, would you still be by my side?

Hold on
There's so much more in life
Just listen to your heart
And you will find your way
Just trust me
Track Name: Shining
This dreaming feels too good to be true
Wake me up, your face turns black and blue
Straight to the heart, from me to you
Wonder if anyone else is lost too

Keep up the speed, Keep up the pace
Do whatever it takes to keep me awake
Everything here is so fucking fake
Let's just see, what it's going to take

I'm lost so stay away
Go and live like any other day
Ill be fine here on my own
Broken down by this rundown home

Can't tell a dream from reality
I've lost my mind, where can it be?
Locked in a chest, find me the key
Blood on the hands that leave it be

Keep up the speed, Keep up the pace
Do whatever it takes to keep me awake
Everything here is so fucking fake
Lets just see what its gunna take

I never ever thought, that my mind was fucking wild
till I threw you on the ground and rolled around with totodile
on the tiles my reflection shattered broken little smile
and the blood is on the fire if I don't fill up for miles

The people that you kick when you're down
Just for them, a thorn filled crown
Upon their heads
Fucking dead

It's time to see
Which road you are going to take?
Down the path and towards the lake
To drown yourself towards heaven's gates

I'm lost so stay away
Go and live like any other day
Ill be fine here on my own
Broken down by this rundown home
I've lost it all, minds locked away
Ill still live to see another day
Once I lose my mind its gone for good
But hear me now I'll be okay
Track Name: Discoloured
Where do you go
When the world is against you?
Feeling left out while they hand it to you
Dont even think, when you think of leaving
Just open your mind up and see what you're missing

I can't keep playing
These games we play, they're so demeaning
But that's the point of you
You put others down so that you can feel happy

I'll lift my head
There's nothing but violence and damage from you
And so you say
That all that comes from you will always help me through

Ill break you
You are nothing to me

I wont stand for this
This is my life, and there's nothing you can do to take it from me

I'll lift my head
There's nothing but violence and damage from you
And so you say
That all that comes from you will always help me

Don't you say?
You won't achieve anything
I won't fade
I'm here to stay!

I feel on decline
Needing space to clear my mind
But that doesn't mean I'm leaving
It's us against the world until I stop breathing

Even on the coldest nights
The hate I feel inside
Makes me feel like leaving
But I'm here once again
back to back we're never fading

I'm here to stay
I hope that you will find your way
Just when you're free
Leave space for me

I'll lift my head
Theres nothing but violence and damage from you
And so you say
That all that comes from you will always help me
Track Name: Paragon
Where is my head?
I'm failing myself again
I've got to get out of this rotting place
So far out
To reach my salvation
What is this life?
What has it become?

So far out
To reach my salvation
To go on forever
What is this life?
What has it become?

What have I become?
I'm always defining
The things that shape my life
Hear me when I say
I will move forward
And carry forth my song

I will find it!
At the edge of the road
Bleh!

Deeper and deeper into this hole
I try to crawl out but there's too much above me
Oh god I can't get out!
Oh god please help me!
I can't breathe!

What have I become?
I'm always defining
The things that shape my life
Hear me when I say
I will move forward
And carry forth my song

So carry on this name
And never hide in shame
I will not be afraid

I will sing loud
For the ears of the generations
Listen close
And find your song of heart

You've got to listen to your heart!
And live up your life!
Track Name: Seconds Apart
All I need is a reason
All I need is a reason to stay here
I'm not accustomed to strangers
But I feel like I've known you a lifetime

I need to know that you are still with me
I just need you to see that I'm hurting
A thousand times you play in my mind
I think you need to see how I'm living

I don't think I can take this anymore
The thoughts in my head, they come and go
But one thing's the same
My mind can't take this anymore
Back and forth, running wild
We're out of time, let's rewind

All I need is a reason
All I need is a reason to stay here
I'm not accustomed to strangers
But I feel like I've known you a lifetime

All I need is a reason
To stay here with you
With all these thoughts you're a stranger
I just see your face

Wide awake
They are feeding on my thoughts again
At this rate
I will always let them in

All I need is a reason
All I need is a reason to stay here
I'm not accustomed to strangers
But I feel like I've known you a lifetime

So far in motion
I need you to hear me
Such deep emotion
Why can't you just hear me?

We're out of time
Turn back the clock, rewind

Here we find that we're out of time
I need you to hear me
Now it's right take back our lives
I need you to hear me

Along this path I walk
Nothing compares to you
The stars will all align
In hope that you become mine

The darkness around me
It blinds my way
I can no longer see
But I can see that you will stay

Through thick and thin
The darkness will come in
Surrounding the night
Hiding us from the true light
Track Name: Don't Sabotage My Boat
Wiped from your life
Wiped from the earth
I was the one who gave you the world
Left out at sea
Abandoned to be
Nothing but a wreckage
A hazard to me
Sometimes I lied
Sometimes I broke
Down to the gutter which held up all my hopes

As soon as I could
Find my way home
You'd be there to push me right back down to the dirt

This silence (nothing left)
Is killing me to try (killing me)
You just (always)
Sit there and (idly sit by)

What is above
What is below
Only in time will the answer be told
Where will I go?
Which road to travel?
Destruction and my path will only unravel

Forget me
As I drown out at sea
Don't look back because you might find me

This silence (nothing left)
Is killing me to try (killing me)
You just (always)
Sit there and (idly sit by)

Reaping from me
This heart has held a lot of pain
But I gotta keep trying
Taken from me
Never gunna look back
Now it's time for a little payback

My mind thinks one
But my gut says another
This is the real
Heaven and hell
One choice blocked by another
Sin and corruption clash together

This is the real
Heaven and hell

Someday I hope to see the bright side of things
A never ending darkness that is your being

I will never come to know your name!
