Track Name: The Divide
The Divide

In a crowded place, I'm looking back
Look through those eyes, that don't even hold a mark
Look at these wings, couldn't hold flight
Have them burned down while the morning lights rise

And now I walk to face the end
So let me breathe my own air

One last time before the blade
Restlessly comes settling in

Let the wind blow let the rain fall
Hear the executioner call
Watch the traitors' head roll
As the shadow takes his soul

Is there anything left
In this world worth saving
Oh my values now lost
They were the ones under the blade

And the day they died
Was the first day of my life
Track Name: Forgive and Forget
I've decided to keep a journal, To have it all on record
So when I no longer have a use in this world, I'll still have something good
To leave behind, a god damned beginner's guide
On how not to fuck up, With examples offered
I feel a pain of conscience, enslaved to the substance
I am to take on the blame, all the bruises and the shame
I'll forget everything I wanted to say
All the good that I thought I could convey
No way to fix what's broken
I've been raised for frailty and haze
Yet things won't stay
Forever safe anyway
I keep repeating mistakes
I can't remember the steps
It's like a pattern for failing against the stakes
A stained fantasy coming alive
Makeshift paradise, we've sold our souls and fantasized
Too late to bargain now
All the breaks have weathered out

Too many decisions that were not my own
Too many opinions that I could not control
Too many lessons that I didn't learn
Too thousand reasons to just let it go
All alone - Forgive and forget
Without a home - Forgive and forget
Abandoned and cold - I'm sober, but my soul is drunk
All the faces that I once known
Broken and torn I can't let Go

I'm drowning in the waters of my own conscience
Please someone wake me up
Please give me peace of heart

Don't let this sinking conscience
Freeze me up
Track Name: Heavy Eyes
My eyes deny me the privilege
Of getting some shut-eye
Can't reason with this wreckage
And I'm up all night
No matter how much I try
In the morning I can't hide
My red eyes betraying
I’m not alright
So I keep like I always do
All these things locked up inside me
Don't tempt me
I’m the worst bet you could have made
I’ll take my turn and be the first to
Walk out that door
I’m trying hard to keep my self from
going down that road
Cause once I’m out
There’s no going back
Hey, no, don't throw
Everything away
We’ve come to far to let it all go
Down the fucking drain
The scent of alcohol is buried
Deep inside these walls
And nothing you could ever say
Will wash it away
Hey don't worry
You won't hear much from me
If you can't steer this ship to safety
I'll keep outta your way
There's not a presence, just your absence here
Looming in the dark
You know I've always had a weak voice
To match my weary heart
I always thought that I could speak out
And come to bear my heart
But there was no one I could reach out to
No one to hear me out
The one I tried so hard to reach
Was nowhere to be found
Just these empty eyes reflecting
The emptiness around
Despite your desperate reassuring
That everything’s alright
I saw this picture perfect coating
Of a fruit that’s rotting out
I was too petrified to do it
So I just kept on giving up
Instead of facing all my fears
I’d let the days go by
And as they passed, they took apart
Almost all that I had
Your broken will, my broken heart - have wasted half of my life
And I'm afraid to realize
I wasted all of my life
Track Name: Scavengers
Scavengers of the aftermath
When the worst will pass we'll be the ones to last
To remember, the first time, the last time
That we spent hours dreaming, believing
That something will come to save us from our wreckage
The thought of losing everything
Has often crossed my mind
My demons in front of me
Gotten out of hand
But i don't have the patience
To see everyone around
Selling me their false intentions
They don't know how
Their side of brightness, is so FAR
The shallowness behind its beauty - haunting
Decisions made on good intentions
But with no regards
Repercussions (falling like a)
House of cards
We had everything. Now gone
Beggers and thieves
We go together like eachothers worst enemies
The water will spill, it will come to wash awy without will
No matter how hard we try,
The nights will go by, and days will betray,
But feelings won't fade won't shed and won't die,
Let reasons unfold, I've told you, we're
Beggars and thieves
We go together like each-others' worst enemies
The water will spill - it will come to wash awy without will
So dry your eyes,
The taste of happiness,
Is just a glimpse of things to come
We've seen the weather change
Witnessed the clouds turn grey
We've cured the cancer,
Set other monsters free
I'll leave no uncertainty regarding who will set you free
You can rest assured, it will be it will be me
Beggars and thieves
We go together like each-others' worst enemies
The water will spill - it will come to wash awy without will
Track Name: Shutter
At the edge of space lies a ship,
It's unmanned, floating idly away for quite some time
Its crew has been long dead
In a weightless atmosphere
Where the sun never shines
Only the smoke condenses fear
Clear above the ruins of the men that were here
And at the side of that ship stands written
Friendship, love, and commitment
This is the captain
With one last log...
I killed everyone
Despite everything
The emptiness settled in
No wrong or right - no end in sight
Exasperation grew
So I refuse to count my blessings
Aa I refuse to live the long and prosperous life
Cause when I climbed aboard I knew I won't regret the time
I have dreams that crawl their way deep under my skin
Echoes that last too long inside the back of my head
This is a not cry for help
This the scream of a dying man,
The last one alive,
Sane enough to realize
The uselessness of everything
I see just how lost I am
So with a dying breath
I leave a legacy behind
For no one to find

There isn't anything out here, nothing above or below
Just vanity and mad men... never accepted their own
And all our theories have taught us, surrender thought over blood
It's all just politics and the fall of us is the loss of love
Wither in doubt we're all running out
We went again to far
With or without an answer we're all
Rounding towards the fall
We left the silk beneath these streaks
To be the secret the silence keeps
But if we're so afraid of the dark
How come we're here, falling apart

Before our bodies will wither
Before we turn into dust
We'll take the few missing pieces
Leave nothing untouched
Cause all incentives on reason
Are vacancies between seats
Our tombs are made out of questions
Nobody cares what they read
