Track Name: Breathe
Lies, starting where you left behind
Steady moves that make you unafraid
Lies, separate and intertwined
A bigger hell awaiting your mistake
Memories are all but left to fade
Torn apart and taking a new shape
Release all your tension
To focus concentrate
Your tourniquet
This fire
You breathe in
Change for your tourniquet
What makes it form from nothing
Breathe in when it's coming down
But together, we'll never fall
Breathe in now
Wasn't forever long enough?
Well I'll say, "So long.."
Silence crossed your lips and now you're gone
I'm covered in the shit you have undone
If you think you're unobtainable
You better start to run
Tomorrow will never...
Come in
She said...come in like everyone else
Come in....relax
Come in....lay down
Face to face
Lies and no mistakes;
You feel
Track Name: Serves You Right
Anything but hopelessness
And everything that goes with it
Couldn't take another fall from where we are
Don't deny the evidence
The phony look of innocence
And when you're persecuted for your blatant disregard
Lately I feel sinister
Undisciplined and immature
And I blame society for failure and a broken home
Now it serves you right
The standards that we're living by
There's a difference when we collide
Will you shake my hand and then turn your back to break the tide?
Serves you right
SUCKS me dry
DAMN this endless guilt
All I feel is tangled at the heels
And I'm searching for an opening to let you in
And as we turn
Cautious so that no one's hurt
You run ahead, steal our edge
So I'll take the blame
Patience is my only step
And you're wondering why you've been left
But behind these walls is the way step falls
For the offering
Forgive me
It's been a long time
Forgive me
Can you tell yourself
The end is near
(Serves your right)(Can you tell yourself)
Track Name: Secret You
Forgive the things I've never said to you...
I'm sorry
I tried to hold on, you were gone (goodbye)
The day has passed the sun has set
I'm broken standing all alone
Fill it up all the space in my heart (sleep sound)
Rest in your fables a nightmare...
Hide away you push it down so deep inside in fear
That these secrets you
Lock up tight then close your eyes
Will it compromise and take you over
Come quick the world's collapsing in on me
Under my feet
Only you can hold me cornerstone
An opening that's closed again
I'm stretching standards lowering
A consequence that's on the edge of breaking me down
Rest in your fables, a nightmare...
Heaven won't save us from falling...
The hours passed the sun has set
And slowly I watch it all drain into one
In a succession of irreversible time
My words become incoherent babble
A subtle hue of apathy mixed with the overtone of regret
Bloodshot eyes accompanied by the ritual signs of grief
I feel no pulse of life....
Everything I fear
I'm telling you angels couldn't hear
You're screaming at the top of your lungs
Get it out
All the words that fail
Filled and finally
Rest assure all these lies
Taken in, and they compromise
And you
And I couldn't say anything
