  • 05:10 Lyrics Something Gone

    VERSE

    It's beginning to test my patience
    It's beginning to pull me under
    I'm not giving in to these limits
    Break this set, then slaved to another

    I'm not going to waste my time on
    Waiting for you to show compassion
    All this time I've wasted holding on
    Just a victim to your reactions

    PRE-CHORUS

    You're on your own with holding on to
    something gone

    CHORUS

    I wish that I could tell you I believe
    That all the words you say mean anything
    I've given up with finding a release
    Inside this open cell

    VERSE

    Here's an answer to all your judgements
    Here's the reward for your indifference
    Never listened to one word I said
    Always bowing to your insistence

    BRIDGE

    Having trouble holding on

  • 04:47 Lyrics Confusion

    VERSE

    It’s not fate or a calling, falling for your grace
    Then forgotten, lost or just replaced
    Ask a question, mention something else
    The solution useless in it’s help

    CHORUS

    Confusion in my head
    You are all that’s left
    Paint a truth pretend

    VERSE

    It’s the same sad relenting, bend until it breaks
    Indecision, give into the game
    By the clock the flock all move the same
    Asking questions answers won’t betray

  • 05:56 Lyrics Apart at the Seams

    CHORUS

    Take me apart again at the seams
    And break me down cut me till it bleeds
    'Cause I can't hear you calling me
    The walls are closing in again and I can't breathe

    VERSE

    It's pitiful it's pitiful the way you look at me
    Making me grow cynical and broken down
    It's pitiful it's pitiful to keep me in this cage
    It's holding me I'm under key 

    PRE-CHORUS

    Can you save me?

    BRIDGE

    You break my mind down once again 
    But I'm sure the pain is soon to end
    Awake to silence I'll be gone  
    As you come to find that you're alone

    VERSE

    This feeding me and bleeding me is wearing me too thin
    Giving into your demands to pacify
    Breaking chains but still the same - no such thing as free
    No release I'm under key

  • 04:24 Lyrics Betray

    VERSE

    I’m beaten to my knees. My insecurities have got the best of me.
    I’m digging my way out, my dignity in doubt. Who’s keeping my cage now?

    CHORUS

    All these fears force me down and keep a hold on me
    A quiet suffering
    Such a shame, struck down reeling at the thought of change
    But everything just stays the same 

    VERSE

    Give what you want to see, admission of my greed. Sycophant in my need.
    There goes what’s left of me, the rest just withering. Don’t put your faith in me.

  • 03:52 Lyrics Sorrow

    VERSE

    I’m just waiting for the sun to shine, waiting for the rain to break
    With sorrow’s voice left whispering in my mind as I’m left withering
    And forced to leave all of my dreams behind, accepting thoughts of hate
    As all the memories from a former life slowly fade away

    CHORUS

    And I’m sick and tired of always giving in
    As you stand aside to watch me fail again
    Persuaded to a life of decadence
    And I’m losing time and patience

    VERSE

    Too often beat down, broken, losing stride with no one left to blame
    Ans as I question reason for this life I hesitate
    There is no meaning behind false hope cries but to feed the pain
    So as the memories leave their tracks behind I slowly dissipate

  • 03:27 Lyrics Disconnect

    VERSE

    I see the way it has to be; my role in this, another casualty.
    It stays the same. You always seem to take joy from another’s suffering

    CHORUS

    So dissonant and far away, you never hear a word I say
    So disconnect and fall away, tell me I’m better off this way

    VERSE
        
    Pretend for me, another dream – shattered, coming apart at the seams
    So plead to me, just out of reach. The feeding from another’s empathy

  • 03:57 Lyrics My Creation

    VERSE

    Where am I to go now, when there’s no where left to turn
    I’m reeling but I’ve found I’m under your concern
    I’ve been turning inward to find some peace of mind
    You never even heard a reason to the rhyme

    CHORUS

    But in my creation I’m not so incomplete
    In this isolation I’m safe and out of reach
    There’s no consolation, no place to find some peace
    But in my creation

    VERSE

    This role I am cast in, a pawn under control
    Is hollow and wanting a sense of where to go
    I’m hiding behind words and in between the lines
    You’ve never been concerned with feelings left behind


    BRIDGE

    Hold me now, don’t let go
    Free my heart, release my soul
    Hold me now, don’t let go
    Free my heart, release my soul

  • 04:27 Lyrics Blinders

    VERSE

    All these circles we run in
    Never ending the begin
    If this film loop doesn’t stop

    PRE-CHORUS I

    Then please let me off
    Please let me off

    CHORUS

    Everthing’s the same it’s always been
    Comes around then goes around again
    Substitute or replace, in the end
    It comes around to hold you down instead

    VERSE

    Why is it we live this way?
    Letting blinders guide our fate
    If this masquerade’s the cost

    PRE-CHORUS II

    Then I’d rather not
    I’d rather not

  • 04:45 Lyrics Suffocating

    VERSE

    I’m out of reach, all you teach fake to me
    I disagree, listlessly changing me

    PRE-CHORUS
     
    I’m here to change your thinking
    Right here, but you don’t see me
    Brainwashed and so convicted
    Bleed then to prove you mean it

    CHORUS

    Suffocating, I’m indebted to you
    So self assured with your head in a noose

    VERSE

    You look so sick, innocent, ignorant
    I feel so cold, bought and sold, in control

    VERSE

    Keep me this way, safe and caged, nothing’s changed
    I hesitate, fall and break. Stay away.

    BRIDGE
      
    You’re turning blue, smiling at me
    So sure of my dependency
    Using your boasting against you
    One word too many, breath too few

  • 05:34 Lyrics The Lepers

    VERSE

    It’s not getting better, it won’t let me be
    Torn apart together, take what’s left of me
    Hold on for the comfort that I thought it gave
    Bleeding for another but you bleed the same

    PRE-CHORUS

    This cutting me, is my release
    And out of reach, you won’t see me

    CHORUS

    Falling, to my knees. I’m
    Withdrawing, withering. What you
    Want that I can’t be. I can’t
    Quiet voices screaming in my head

    VERSE

    I cannot forget her purging memory
    Telling me “forever” as I watch you leave
    Hold each other for the comfort that it gives
    Bleeding for each other in our sacrilege

    BRIDGE

    Ready to throw myself, give myself to all of the words you said. I believed you.
    All of the things I try end up the same. End with me wearing the cost of your game.

  • 03:20 Lyrics Mired Down

    VERSE
     
    Look at what you’ve done, look what you’ve become
    Now you’re just someone living in a shell of you
    No use in lying, no use in trying
    You’re paralyzed and by a lie you bought as true

    CHORUS

    I am reaching out to you and
    Trying to keep hope alive for you but
    I can’t stand here and idly watch you
    Dying, mired down by your own abuse

    VERSE

    See where it’s heading, see what you’re getting
    Keep on forgetting everything you knew before
    You’ve got excuses, every one useless
    A bad solution to a problem you ignore
