Track Name: Deadweight
Take away all of this aggravation, stuck to the trail of regret.
Re birthed to the wild, an empty image of you.
Lessons of happenstance learned from an era of error.
Binging away on an excess of pleasure.
One day you'll learn that you reap what you sow, and pay for all you've harmed.
A broken son of a broken world, left to fix this wreck before me.
The weight of the world in my throat as my heart bleeds for you.
So sick and tired of picking up slack on a deadweight rope.
So toss this anchor out to sea, and tie the rope to your fucking feet.
The only death fit for this king, This is the end.
Just like Rome, we all must fall.
Rise from the ashes and fly away.
Follow these smoke trails to the edge of the earth until this all feels right.
And we find a place to lay our head.
One day you'll learn that you reap what you sow, and pay for all you've harmed.
But I can't sit by and watch you learn, my idle hands grow tired.
So this is the end, this is the end.
So toss this anchor out to sea, and tie the rope to your fucking feet.
The only death fit for this king, fit for this king.
Just like Rome, we all must fall.
Rise from the ashes and fly away.
Just like Rome, we all must fall.
We all must fall.
The sun will break, as it has for one thousand years.
And it will for one thousand more, this I know for sure.
Track Name: Ambiguity
As the dust has settled, covered all of its molds.
Holding you, holding you in.
A concrete shell of life suffocating on each breath.
Just let this be and have this rain wash away the past.
Looking back is breathing life to the dead, it's eating you alive.
A world of empty eyes that keep their words to themselves.
They never wanted, they never wanted this.
Don't give up anything.
Just let this be and have this rain wash away the past.
Looking back is breathing life to the dead, it's eating you alive.
Carve a truth from this stone, let it tear you limb from limb.
Let this be your funeral bell, let this be your dying hymn.
Just let this be and have this rain wash away the past.
Looking back is breathing life to the dead, it's eating you alive.
Eating you alive
Looking back is breathing life to the dead, it's eating you, eating you alive.
This has to end now, before you lose yourself.
All these memories you've repressed, coming out to a flurry of madness.
I'm snow blind and lost, trying to pull you back to life.
This ends now.
Track Name: Four Ninety-Five
So hit the brakes, but you won't slow down in time.
The wheels are spinning, and burning to the core and trying to stop what's already begun will be the hardest thing you'll do.
I am the deer caught in your headlights in the road with no expression on my face.
I've never been so calm to be this scared, with my head in my hands and my feet in the air.
Seconds from the ground, my eyes are blinded from the light at the end of this whirlwind tunnel.
I've never been so calm to be this scared.
My eyes see they through yours as your head hits the dash, and this wave of destruction slips past in my arms,
in my legs, in my heart, in my mind all I know is that I wanted this.
All I know is that I wanted this.
To be two as one, for as long as I exist, and to live with the knowledge you know I persist to be the one on your mind when everything hits,
and to be the pieces that you pick up when I can't stand alone.
You hid in these pines for as far as I recall, but the night that I saw the light was the best I've had.
You came through my life like a breath of fresh air, or a flash in the sky. I'll hit the ground, and hope I'm still running.
My eyes see they through yours as your head hits the dash, and this wave of destruction slips past in my arms, in my legs, in my heart, in my mind.
So hit the brakes, but you won't slow down in time.
The wheels are spinning, and burning to the core.
Track Name: Mean What You Say
What am I supposed to say when you leave no words left?
How am I gonna make things right if I can't even breathe.
Reading between all these lines of this transcribed loneliness, pushing all of this weight onto my shoulders.
I'm not alone with these melodies, filling my body with reckless thoughts.
These currents are electric, causing convulsions of openness.
Don't you pretend that you don't know who I am, and don't pretend that you don't know what we signed in blood.
This is my voice all written out on paper. My reclusive mind is free to roam.
I'm not alone with these melodies, filling my body with reckless thoughts.
These currents are electric, causing convulsions of openness.
All I have to give you is that I just need time to think, to let this settle in.
You said that this, this wouldn't work, well I'm not one for giving in.
I'll scream this till I'm fucking blue in the face, I won't be the one to walk away.
You better learn to mean what you say, and say what you mean, to me.
Don't pretend that you don't know who I am, and don't pretend that you don't know what we signed in blood.
This is my voice all written out on paper.
My reclusive mind is free. free with this family of ghosts, intertwined with a chorus I know.
Where we've learned exactly how get our fucking point across.
Track Name: Say What You Mean
Breaking my fucking back for an ounce of happiness never seemed so bad.
But you need to learn to say what you've got to my face.
These grapevines tell your lies.
You're just a fake.
You'll always be what you hated.
You'll always be what you hate.
Feeling crowded in an empty room, out of air and out of space, I've never felt so far away from home.
Feet heavy with cement, the waters rising up I know there's no chance for me.
Respect isn't a choice, and I'll make sure you fucking learn that.
I'll put this knife in your back like you've done to everyone you knew.
You're better off dead you stupid, indecisive bitch.
You're better off dead.
walk away, just turn your back on this mess.
Say what you mean.
Mean what you say to me.
You're better of dead, you stupid indecisive bitch.
You're better off dead
Track Name: Confidant
Lighting fires all along the path trying to guide you in.
There's no safety left in these trees.
This valley once lush with life is taking heed to the creeping death.
That nagging feeling on the back of my neck.
I swear to god, you'll catch your death out there, lying with the sheep in the shepards fields.
I'm finding solace in the wolves clothing, carving a path all my own.
I swear to god, you'll catch your death out there, lying with the sheep in the shepards fields.
I'm finding solace in the wolves clothing, I'm finding.
I've been running for so long I don't know what to look back on.
I've left an empty trail in my wake, and I'm sorry to bring you down like me.
but I don't know where to begin or where to end.
This is a weight that I'll forever hold. I'm taking a life of my own.
This is a constant struggle of will, bringing us both to our knees.
I let this door slam shut and now I'm clawing at the seams, trying to push back in.
These ghosts, these ghosts, these ghosts have risen up and they won't stop until I'm one of them.
I swear to god, you'll catch your death out there, lying with the sheep in the shepards fields.
I'm finding solace in the wolves clothing, carving a path all my own.
I swear to god, you'll catch your death out there, lying with the sheep in the shepards fields.
I'm finding solace in the wolves clothing, I'm finding
Track Name: BDK
You've been long gone, a distant memory.
A distinct air, stale and black as death.
Buried long ago, in the depths of this mind.
Broken down inside, particles in the wind.
I thought you'd been long dead, buried by the riverbed.
I should've known.
I thought I saw your ghost today, an eerie likeness to the way you moved.
I thought I saw your ghost tonight, crossing over from some other side.
thought you'd been long dead, buried by the riverbed. I should've known, you've always been the better swimmer.
Track Name: Fair Weather Friend
You come and go with the passing of the wind.
I never hear your voice until the thunders passed.
It's been years since your eyes have seen a shadow of my doubt, or since you've shivered through the cold.
I'm so bad with my words without a pen in my hand that you can't understand what this means, unless you feel this to the bone.
There's a piece missing from deep within, that I can't find without your eyes to see, this lock is shut without a key.
This winter will be the a death of me.
This cold will cleanse us from who you've become.
A stranger in familiar skin.
You come and go with the passing of the wind.
I never hear your voice until the thunders passed.
It's been years since your eyes have seen a shadow of my doubt, or since you've shivered through the cold.
Rusting away from the inside out. Shedding my skin.
Showing my face in this place I never thought I'd be.
It's been years since you're eyes have seen a shadow of my doubt.
You come and go with the passing of the wind.
I never hear your voice until the thunders passed.
It's been years since your eyes have seen a shadow of my doubt, or since you've shivered through the cold.
Do you remember that this winter will be the death of me.
Track Name: Soul Contract
I need to find some solidarity.
This silence is fucking killing me.
I can't stand another moment of this tidal flow, I'm drained, I'm drowned, I'm slipping away.
Although my minds been racing, my heart lay still, and with these sober thoughts I can say that I've found.
I've found the things that I've been searching for alive within this abandoned body.
Leave the sea, to the sea, and let us float along.
Wait your whole life for your heaven, something to forgive your wrongs, but I, I've seen what lies ahead.
It's nothing better or worse than what I've imagined.
I hate to be the one to say We've got nowhere to go.
Sleep will be my only haven.
My saving grace through this living grave.
I've built this casket for you, but I'll be the one entombed.
I can not breathe, I can not speak,
I can't.
I can not breathe, I can not speak, I can not breathe.
I'm torn in two.
Track Name: Petrichor
Open your mind to this world, like a drowning mouth to the sea.
Let the light shine in, wipe away the blood.
Rise up and stand on your own two feet.
This hunger burns inside us all.
To feel the world in your hand.
To be the one in control.
We made these choices for the better, and took these lessons to heart.
In the ruin of the past we've salvaged happiness.
So speak these words with me, and scream it out cause in the end it'll only happen again.
A constant cycle of emptiness as tragedy, unless you stop it here with me dead in its tracks.
We made these choices for the better and took these lessons to heart, and in the ruin of the past we've salvaged happiness.
Inadequacies cease to be as I become the beacon to my soul.
I put my hands in my friends and I know I'm home.
For we who wander are not lost, we're going home.
I will build a better world than those who came before me, And we will raise the bar for those who follow.
Inadequacies cease to be as I stumble along this path.
I put my hand in my friends' and I know I'm home.
A house is made of wood and stone, but it's love that makes this house a home.
A house is made of wood and stone, but it's love.....
