Track Name: Silver
Better ways, you could have had better days if you could change,
Would you have it all undone?
When yesterday, you decided to take all your lies and give them life,
So now you're just another one.
Track Name: Fade to Grey
Pull me out, before I lose myself
In a life that calls me back again.
I still hear you screaming, screaming frequent lies, just to tear me down and leave me all alone.

This apathy, is it over?
Letting it go straight to my head, discrepancies are growing closer, leaving me in my head.

If you don't want to hear me out,
I know that I'm always hard to be around,
So I'll take my dreams and I'll put them in the ground.
I can't wait another day until I can finally be ok
Everything around me will slowly fade to grey.

And all I tell myself
"You'll get through this somehow, one day it all comes back around"
But still, I'm a low life.
Lower than the dirt dug from the furthest point, I'm stuck here on my own.

This apathy, is it over?
Letting it go straight to my head, discrepancies are growing closer, leaving me in my head.

If you don't want to hear me out,
I know that I'm always hard to be around,
So I'll take my dreams and I'll put them in the ground.
I can't wait another day until I can finally be ok
Everything around me will slowly fade to grey, slowly fade to grey.

And I've been sinking, I just can't put my mind at ease.
Oh god, it's happening, right now it's happening to me.
I just don't know how this lifestyle kills me everyday, and I want it better until I slowly fade away.
Track Name: Safe Haven
I wanna be anywhere except reality,
But I'm stuck, trapped in everything I've broken up like my mind,
Like the ones who've lost it, but I think it's the end,
Where I'm alone, alone.

Directionless, stuck inside my head, paralyzed, and praying I can face the consequence.
And I can't comprehend my reality.
Lie awake at night and think of a life I lead.

I wanna be anywhere except reality,
But I'm stuck, trapped in everything I've broken up like my mind,
Like the ones who've lost it, but I think it's the end,
Where I'm alone, alone.

I'm scared of what is to come,
I'm broken and I'm beaten down,
I'm dreaming I could run away from everything that occupies my time.
It's over now, it's all been said, there's nowhere left to hide again
Track Name: For Heaven's Sake
, I've been running for a year now, acting like I'm never hurt, avoiding every single thing I want to change
I, I think it's time to face my fears now, cause something's gonna have to work
But still I wanna just get away

I'm sick of fighting off my demons as I justify all that I've done wrong
Keep your head up, don't be shy, give me all the reasons why I can't go on, go on

For heaven's sake, why can't I change to everything I ever thought I stood for?
But in my head, I'm so mislead by my resolute hope
But fate owes me a chance, oh please

I'm sick of fighting off my demons as I justify all that I've done wrong
Keep your head up, don't be shy, give me all the reasons why I can't go on, go on

These feelings won't seem to go away, till we're all worn out, till we're digging our graves
It's not the end of the book, just the start of the page I ripped out and can't seem to throw away
These feelings won't seem to go away, till we're all worn out, till we're digging our graves
It's not the end of the book, just the start of the page I ripped out and can't seem to throw away
Track Name: Bleeding Out
Clear your head, it's all you need.
Remember how it feels to breathe.
Tired eyes reflect my lies,
I hide behind this masked disguise.

You can't seem to find the words you left in me,
They won't leave, they never felt like anything.

I've been starting wars inside my head, and I always thought that I would have to change.
But now, I feel my body breaking down.
Am I bleeding out or will I finally stay away?

Waste away your horrid days,
Release the tension, all the pain.
Tell the truth, please help me through,
The failing light I've lost in you.

You can't seem to find the words you left in me,
They won't leave, they never felt like anything.
You can't seem to find the words you left in me,
They won't leave, they never felt like anything.
(I've been doing worse than I ever have, I just can't seem to make this go away).

I've been starting wars inside my head, and I always thought that I would have to change.
But now, I feel my body breaking down.
Am I bleeding out or will I finally stay away?
Track Name: Rushlight
For someday soon, when this disappears.
For someday when, I will still be here.
It's been so long since I've felt part of something.
With stone cold eyes, I've numbed all parts of life.

But on that day, it will resonate,
Why I took lies, confused them all for fate.
The dreamed up wars will soon be all but over.
A frame designed for a final strife.

Stuck in this empty rut, try to pull me out alive.
But I'll never take the time to let you know it's possible.
And please don't let me feel this way, desolated in empty space.
You'll just have to take the time to let me know it's possible.
