Track Name: The Return
I feel I can move with the water, come down like a wave Flow smooth and move like a river, fall hard like the rain Coming clean and I'm boiling over, my heart swells in extremes Climb down and I hand it over, there must be something to gain I feel I can burn like a fire, rise high like a flame Ignite and spark like a lighter, explode with a bang High rises and I'm hanging over, feel nothing but pain Climb down and I hand it over, there must be something to gain Sing these words until my return Erupt from the Earth like a fountain, move land like it's air Turn flat ground into mountain, sky into sand Don't want your money don't need your poison, don't have much in the way of restraint Don't need this headache, don't need a reason, don't have much but I'm coming clean Sing these words until my return I don't want your money, I don't need this poison, I don't have much in the way of restrain I don't need this headache and I don't need a reason, I don't have much but I'm coming clean Staking my claim Pain
Track Name: Worth The Fight
It's hard to see sometimes What the fuck I'm fighting for But if it feels like I haven't won this war I'll keep coming back for more Until I know the truth Until I see it myself Then I'll be the proof that says you can fight through hell It gets dark and it gets lonely, this I know, but it's worth the fight Through it all there's something that keeps me strong, keeps me fighting on I've seen the city, I've seen the lights, I've seen enough to know the worst beatings worth the fight It gets dark and it gets lonely, this I know, but it's worth the fight Through it all there's something that keeps me strong, keeps me fighting on Is this a blessing is this a curse? Is it worth the pain is it worth the hurt?
Track Name: B.T.C.
She's going out tonight She's got a cigarette and black fishnet tights She had another bad day And she's trying to stay alive, but she's failing So she's gonna seize the night You can't worry about tomorrow Everything is so fucking dirty in the daylight But there's beauty in the night He's waking up again He's got another bad hangover (Yea, but fuck it) And it's here, it's 6 AM And this struggle is far from over (So it goes) He's gonna face the day Tomorrow's coming and there will be no escape So it goes, my friends There will be hell to pay
Track Name: Built To Fall
I surround myself with walls of steel block out the world so I can never feel anything that brings me down With this I'll never fly, never shine, never die Swinging to the rhythm of a wrecking ball, destroying all I've built I'm crashing through the halls Though I saw it coming, can't escape it's wrath until these walls come crumbling, fall and collapse Now I can see beyond the walls that hid me from the things I love and things I fear, and I tore them down, and it all rushed in and washed me out, but I'll never drown Swinging to the rhythm of a wrecking ball, destroying all I've built I'm crashing through the halls Though I saw it coming, can't escape it's wrath until these walls come crumbling, fall and collapse My own death Staring me down Waiting for me to Follow it's sound Through the deepest And darkest of depths Destroying these walls Until there's nothing left
Track Name: Dark Paths
Allen cared like a brother He paved the way Made it look like a fucking art As he blends with the shadows And the light escapes the room Will his face seem to disappear? It's hard to lead a man through this darkness When the end seems out of sight But at the end of this dark path I swear there is a light My old friend, follow this, this dark path, follow it, to the end.
Track Name: Brodie's Song
I came home late last night and all my shit was on the lawn I've been on the wrong side of this fight for way too long I said she never loved me, yea she played me for a pawn But even worse, she said she hates my dog You know worst of all she said she hates my dog But me and this here mutt, we've been running all around And ever since the day I met that girl, she's the only one that sticks around She was here way before you bitch and she'll here when you're long gone You can say what you want, don't trash my dog You can say what you want about me, don't trash my dog I came home late last night and she'd been drinking once again I got home at 3 in the morning, she started at 10 AM Belligerent and wasted, that girl she pulled a gun I said, "take what you want, but let the doggy run." You can kill me if you want, but let the doggy run
Track Name: Collision
I spilled my blood in vain Turned my back and walked away But I found myself again Coming around for one more chance I've been gone from here for years Coming back around again On impact in ten Collision There's nowhere left to go It's another nowhere road I've been through hell and back I still got my soul
Track Name: Tonight
A fire burns inside your head, kick-start your soul, now let it rev We're going out tonight We'll be down there if you want to go, it's the dirty places that you never go We're going out tonight We'll pour the drinks and let them flow, we'll loosen up and lose control We're going out tonight Line it up and burn it down until fire and ash burns the ground We're going out tonight Because night time is the right time For a lost soul like me And tonight just feels right For now I'm free You're prying open your bloodshot eyes, now come awake and come alive We're going out tonight We'll bounce around in these dirty clubs until the liquor boils down in the blood We're going out tonight You'll have no time for broken luck, no time to stumble kid, gotta get up We're going out tonight Push the meters straight in the red, you can sleep girl when you're dead We're going out tonight
Because night time is the right time For a lost soul like me And tonight just feels right For now I'm free
Track Name: Born In Vain
Dampen the sound replace it with all of the things that let us down, and led us on to believe that Down the road there's a place where we belong but now it's all gone away We were born in vain Live our lives this way we'll die the same So forget our names we were born in vain Will I ever bury the past, leave it behind with hopes to forget Will I always live with regret, always be burdened and never forget Look down the road, you'll see the things we were supposed to be but now they've all gone away We were born in vain, live our lives this way we'll die the same So forget our names we were born in vain Never live this down, always die this way Never live this down, always live this way Never live this down, always die this way We'll always die in vain
Track Name: Morphine
It's going out, it's coming in Through everything you've seen I just never thought you'd be A blank face holding hollow stares No one ever seems to fucking care They don't ask how, why, or where They're just taking what they've been given It's old fashion morphine It's old fashion morphine It's old fashion morphine baby, is it good enough for you? Feel the venom, it's in your veins From the arm to the blood, now it's in your brain We used to question what we became Until big brother took it all I wasn't left behind astray With a bigger vision, a brighter day What you've been fed is a lie, but through these eyes I see that now It's old fashion morphine It's old fashion morphine It's old fashion morphine baby, is it good for you? It was good enough for your grandfathers It was good enough for your fathers too It was good enough for them baby, so is it good enough for you? And now you stand at the bottom Hands reached out for help You'll look to skies for the answers as they scream "no" It's old fashion morphine It's old fashion morphine It's old fashion morphine baby, is it good for you? NO
Track Name: Severed
I will sever myself from all this but it's now or never Cut myself off from these lifeless ventures, drift into this state of mind for ever It's here I'll find that I'm my savior I will be back some day, changed forever never the same Carrying on this way, continuous motion never in place In my absence I will ascend Higher and higher, again and again Forward but finding no end Continuing on without intent With or without anyone I will grow My will is all I need In spite of what I once believed It keeps me firm in place As everything around me fades There are things inside my soul Eating alive flesh to bone There's a heart inside my mind Beating away bringing thoughts to life With or without anyone I will grow My will is all I need In spite of what I once believed It keeps me firm in place As everything around me fades Miles away from here Separate from the world I will disappear severed and unheard My will is all I need In spite of what I once believed It keeps me firm in place as everything around me fades My will will keep me firm in place As everything around me fades
Track Name: Sick and Vicious
We are the wretched Condemned and hopeless These words are twisted Sick, and vicious Leave me for dead Let my bones rot and wither away Feel no regret Let me learn from my own mistakes This is my death wish To die young and reckless Never forgotten Faded to ashes Leave me for dead Let my bones rot and wither away Feel no regret Let me learn from my own mistakes Every step we take Damns us all to hell Never once sat back Let the world roll by, let it choose my track As I move forward on this path I see it all pass by and it seems like I let it all slip away I let my dreams fade And on the day That I die Will my wishful Thoughts reside or Find away to seep inside the hearts and souls of our restless minds We are the wretched Condemned, and hopeless Never forgotten Faded to ashes Leave me for dead Let my bones rot and wither away Feel no regret Let me learn from my own mistakes Every step we take Damns us all to hell
Track Name: Last Words
If I had the chance To speak one last time, I'd be sure to let you know My voice would never die I won't ask, I won't give any apologies In my most desperate hour On my most desperate day I will see things out Until desperation fades If I had the choice To share one last thought, I would choose to let you know This thought would never end I won't ask, I won't give any apologies And in my dying breath I will at last be heard Nothing is permanent These will be my last words So take this as you will Let these words sit or spill Share them or hoard them Let them drift or hold them still In my most desperate hour, On my most desperate day I will see things out Until desperation fades. And in my dying breath I will at last be heard Nothing is permanent These will be my last words.
