Track Name: Withered
As a flower grows towards the sky my essence arose from the soil, as my petals fell from the once vibrant stems.
Track Name: Discretion
My life has, withered away. Feeding the darkness inside my body, it's tearing it's way through my skin. I feel the rumbling of my suffered past, as I slowly fall apart. Chilled beneath the surface, merging flesh and bone, anguish is all I've ever known. I wanna give in I wanna give in. I tried to find my way into your heart but I failed, looked for warmth in their eyes and it wasn't there. I'm sick of blaming the world screaming "this isn't fair how could this happen to me?" All my dreams presented before me by everyone other than myself. I'm losing grip to who I was but I still hold tightly. I have grieved what's wrong and right I'm not defined by the idea of life. I am beyond the scars and mental wounds. I wanna give in I wanna give in. I tried to find my way into your heart but I failed, I looked for warmth in their eyes but it wasn't there. I'm sick of blaming the world screaming "this isn't fair how could this happen to me?" Face first in the waste of all my life's past mistakes. Giving into the guilty tensions breaking down just for attention. A broken home can't stand with hope alone. (X3) A broken a broken home can't stand. I feel so hollow hearted. I tried to find my way into your heart but I failed, looked for warmth in their eyes but it wasn't there. I'm sick of blaming the world screaming "this isn't fair how could this happen to me?" Release the burdens from deep within me, my throat is calloused from the nights spent screaming. Knuckles white tearing at all edges. Ive spent my life blaming but I've come to terms with each and every one of my demons.
Track Name: Villains and Victims
Wither over time erasing traces of damaged pasts eliminating everything. Carving deeper, stretched to the brim of splintered openings, exposed thoughts spill onto the canvas. Painting a blur with blood stained ink pouring out of my veins I feel enlightened to feel pain. In my heart I feel off time beats patterns unfamiliar to me, subconsciously aware but not alarmed or frightened. Inviting sounds escape my chest as my wonder grows greater the air gets thicker. I can't help but think that the warmth I'm feeling is my soul depleting. I see now as I burst back into reality, my blood splattered across the room covering every inch of space in thick shades of abstract red. My visions blurred my tongue is numb the whites of my eyes now block out my sight. I'm panicked, panting exhausted from the fight. I'm dying, losing the battle for my life, as I fade back into my trance I see the silhouette of the one held responsible. (The one held responsible.) In my heart I feel off time beats patterns unfamiliar to me, subconsciously aware but not alarmed or frightened, inviting sounds escape my chest as my wonder grows greater the air gets thicker. I can't help but think that the warmth I'm feeling is my soul depleting. I may be down facing my nightmares I won't rest till my body is broken. I won't quit till I'm dead I won't I won't I won't quit. All I can see Is a reflection of me.
Track Name: Ghost Pains
I am a negative mess, I'm always angry or depressed. My motives are selfish my pride is broken. Don't count on me when you need someone to be there. (Be there) I'm stuck in my ways I can't change so easily. How is anyone supposed to love me when I don't even love myself? We are raised to fear what we don't understand and so we'll stand petrified to the unknown. I don't need saving. What's within your heart? You've been gone from the start. Can you see what I have done? See what I've become. I can't stand the sight of You, always had me believe that I was nothing to anyone I was just a mistake to you a burden that ruined your life. So fuck you and what you believe this is my life and I will be who I choose to be. Youth lost despite my efforts, forced to age so easily. Go to school get a job pay your bills and die. There's no way that this is all there is to life. No way that this is all there is. How is anyone supposed to love me when I don't even love myself? We are raised to fear what we don't understand and so we stand petrified to the unknown. I don't need saving. What's within your heart? You've been gone from the start. Can you see what I have done? See what I've become.
Like a bird that tries to fly higher than its wings will allow it to soar, I too search for a sense of something more. Way up in the sky I won't fall again, fall again. (X4) What's within your heart? You've been gone from the start. Can you see what I have done? See what I've become. (I have finally found my way.)
Track Name: Bewildered
Lost in my mind no time to find the answers I came searching for. Here I will mourn where the sun meets the earth just past the horizon's reach. Bare this storm on your own. The release of Death never sounded sweeter. Let insomnia do It's worst, I will not succumb to this loneliness. I have Suffered (suffered) through out time (throughout time) I am the chilling breeze that lingers in silence. I swore I'd never fall apart, I know I warned you from the start. I swore I'd never fall apart, I know I warned you from the start. I knew just how this would end, I knew deep down in my heart. I want to crumble apart I've lost all remaining hope. Let your tears fall as the rain to earth from the blackened clouds. So eager to please all of these blank faces. Locked away by the never ending noises as I weep. Kept awake at night by the monsters inside of me. A thick haze coats my eyes and my throat swollen heart (hearted) with ashen grey. I swore I'd never fall apart, I know I warned you from the start. Cause I swore I'd never fall apart, I know I warned you from the start. I knew just how this would end, I knew deep down in my heart. I want to crumble apart I've lost all remaining hope. We are the few remaining hopefuls of this bewilderment. Bare this bewilderment.
Track Name: Hope(less)
I drift by like the passing of time. Sat back and watched them decay. saw a mother and father fight for life, as their child said goodbye. This world is so corrupt and there is nothing I can do. As a single thread in the loom I can only hold so much. Shut me out just like I've done you, we never strive for change only to wash away. No longer will I wither, no longer will I wither away. Far from utopia lost between rage and grace, all the sons and the daughters the fathers and martyrs we've poisoned our homes. All our streets are diseased the forests stripped of their trees. Maybe now we can see all of our atrocities. We have spent all this time behind closed doors. Shut me out just like I've done you, we never strive for change only to wash away. No longer will I wither, no longer will I wither away. We are tarnished the very moment that we're born. Singled out we will fail but maybe conjoined as one we can finally build a world worth fighting for. Finally build a world worth fighting for. We have so much potential to grow beyond what we are all known for we're all worth more! Shut me out just like I've done you, we never strive for change only to wash away. No longer will I wither, no longer will I wither away. No longer will I wither, no longer will I wither.
