Track Name: Belonging
My eyes mirror a certain disdain for company
A hatred for who you are and what I've become
Where I lost myself in cement blocks, human hearts, and the evil in you
I could never find myself

Removed from my own mind
Walking the streets like i'm one of your kind
Under pressure pushed to conform
Louder than lies and I won't be ignored
Even when put down I will not be shut out
My mind will not be contained

I will never feel true unity
I will never believe
i will never feel true unity
I will never believe
I will never believe
There's a place for me
There's no place for me
Track Name: Harder to Speak
Ouuuu
It gets harder to speak as I
Choke on my words
Bite my tongue
Realize these words mean nothing at all
Or they just mean everything to you
Realize what your actions do
The world doesn't revolve around you
So why do you lie?

These words that encase your heart
These words that encase your heart
They only play a part
They only play a part
These words that fill your mind
These words that fill you mind
They only play a part
They only play a part

My hearts beating out of my fucking chest
Can you silence these voices in my fucking head

I've split myself in two
What I say
What I do
I've split myself in two
What I say
What I fucking do
Track Name: Poundmaker
I am nothing to myself
As I live in the dark
This fleeting feeling of hope retreats from my mind
I am forever empty
I am forever corrupt
I am not in control
And I see no hope

I tear away at myself
Looking for what I fucking need
Fading into nothing
What am I worth
I will destroy myself
Parting at my fucking seams
Refusal
I will not look outward

Into the dark of this world
Where they told me dreams were held
My journeys brought me nothing
Just misconceptions of myself
A misguided presence searching for reality
In a land where nothing is real
How can I find myself

I tear away at myself
Looking for what I fucking need
Fading into nothing
What am I worth
I will destroy myself
Parting at my fucking seams
Refusal
I will not look outward

I am ignorance
I am your greatest sin
I am the end of the line
I am what you've always been
Track Name: Staring Down the Barrel
When i'm staring down the barrel
Finger on the trigger and I can't stand it
I cant take my own life
But I can't help but slip into depression
Bedridden my flesh is rotting
And I see no escape
My mind is my lord
My body it's slave
And my life is their's to take.

As I spill these words onto silence
Am I broken or how broken am I?

And I see no escape
No salvation
My life is forfeit
And I see no escape
No salvation
My life is forfeit

Finger on the trigger
My head in the noose
Blade to my neck
Why don't you choose
Track Name: Worst
Do you remember who you were when we first met
Can you believe how far we've gone

But I never wanted to feel this way again
I've strayed so far from what I knew
You were always there
You kept me safe
Been there when I needed you
How did we come so far?

I have wandered and been defeated
But I have never quit
I have never given up
I have wandered and been defeated
But I have never quit
I have never given up

I see the happiness draining from your eyes
Your soul
My soul
Intertwined in time
I could never understand how I took this road
When all I followed was lies

I could never be happy without you
I could never feel alive again
Defeated
Consumed by my vices
Surrounded by temptation

But I wont be redeemed
I've betrayed, mistreated and abused
I've betrayed, mistreated and abused

Break!

Fuck it all!
All I ever wanted was to be redeemed
All I ever wanted was to be redeemed
