Track Name: Pros and Cons
We are sick to the back teeth, of all this shit
Draw the line, (Surrender it)
Force fed lie after lie until we just can't stomach this
Shed the weight of this self loathing, we come out fighting coz we're better than that
Time will tell but you won't tell us, we'll see for ourselves coz enough is enough

And if there is one thing that life has shown (It's that no one ever knows)
You're not in control

The truth is that no one ever knows
ONLY YOURSELF x2

The truth is we the truth is we
Know what we live for x2
Track Name: Adrift
Abandoned from an early age, to be born into a broken home
A threat was made upon my life before I ever could have known
Overcome everything, through the worst of times
Their pride forever fuels my life, the true power of the mind

Born into, the world alone.
Cast aside, to the unknown.
Shown the way, and raised with love.
I'll forever be the son you lost.

THE SON YOU LOST.

LOST!

My father never spoke a, single word to me
But then again he left me, before I came to be
My mother always raised me, to be true of heart
Forever blessed by a man, who owed me nothing from the start

I've been adrift for far too long, but now it's time to come back home. Again

But now I'm home again!
Track Name: Blind Ignorance
With eyes too blind to see your ignorance, (has taken its toll)
With ears too deaf to hear, all sense too numb to feel
You risk the love that you have and you just can't seem to understand
You're just wasting away, we're all fading away

You don't have to confine yourself to these walls

I'll be your eyes, when light begins to fade
And bring new life, to your shade

I'll bring new life
To your shade

With eyes too blind to see your ignorance, (has taken it's toll)
With ears too deaf to hear, all sense too numb to feel
You risk the love that you have, and you just can't seem to understand
You're just wasting away, we're all fading away

Just because you exist (x2)
Doesn't mean you're alive (Alive)

With eyes too blind to see your ig-nor-ance
With ears too deaf to hear, all sense too numb to feel
You risk the love that you have
You're just wasting away, we're all fading away

Away
You risk the love that you have, that you have

I'll be your eyes, when light.
BEGINS TO FADE
Track Name: Denounced
I can't stand to hear another word, It's changing me
Why should I sit here and be denounced, In such a way
Defense to attack in the blink of an eye. No moment of respite
You fail to see what's right and wrong in this world. As if the borders collapsing

Change, it changes me
It changes me (It changes me)
If you lived like this yourself. You'd see

You just don't understand
And you never will
And now when I look at you

I don't know what to think, I don't know how to make you see who you are
I DONT KNOW WHAT TO FUCKING SAY
Anymore!

Within my mind is a battle of change (you can't win)
Bearing arms loaded with.

HATE!

Have you any ground to walk on. On your horse that stands so tall
We wave our banners for our own reasons. You can't burn them all x2

You can't burn them all

A Battle with no end. You call arms and never cease to persist
And you'll never reach the horizon. When you're stranded on the shore.
Track Name: Broken Nation
We are the victims of our own demise,

You can’t sustain a system built on lies,

PAIN. You pushed it aside and let,

Greed consume all of your pride.

Greed. Consumed your pride.


(Don’t think twice) we’re living in a broken nation,


(Time to realise) we have to face our own creation.


Where will we go we have no home?

What once was peace has now all gone.


Why should we live in this life of torment (we are one)

Shoulder to shoulder, WE ARE ONE


The air I breathe and all I see, Will soon be buried under my feet x2

Why should we live in this life of torment, WE ARE ONE


The air I breathe and all I see, Will soon be buried under our feet.


We are the victims. x3


We will stand and unite.


WE WILL UNITE


Shoulder to shoulder, We will unite.


Shoulder to shoulder, we must unite



WE. MUST. UNITE.
Track Name: Apart
The current never stops
Forever sweeping me beneath my feet
The wind it never fades
This constant gale i thought i couldn’t face
The fire always burns
There is a message hidden in these flames
The earth it still rotates
As long as there is land to break our fall, how can we be so.

How can we be so…

Apart from life,
From what’s on our minds.
But also from what’s right in front of our eyes.

We try so hard to submerge ourselves
In something we’re uncertain or afraid of.
But all it takes is this moment, to stop and open up.

Because you might realise the light you worked so hard to fight
Might not be so unbearably bright.
[Pause]
And just like that, you know these walls.
All it took was something or someone [to break the fall]

The current never stops
The wind it never fades
The fire always burns
The earth it still rotates
Track Name: Don't Sweat The Small
Because the voices in my head (NEVER SLEEP)
Neither do I
Hour after hour, again and again
How do I drown the voices in my head

Too proud to ask for the help I probably need.
But I find this burden entwines, With the stubborn in me
On top of borderline addiction, it's so hard to keep control
So I'll follow the rabbit hole down to the devils door

I knock on the devils door, and pray to god that he answers me x2

I seek the strength to end this torment

The minutes are hours the hours are days
There's not much more that I can take before I just cave
My past is calling me, towards my future

Lack of understanding, My vision is impaired
I've just about had, all that I can bare

For better or worse, in health and in sickness
I am the true portrayal of insanity

Because the voices in my head never sleep
Neither do I
Hour after hour, again and again
How do I drown the voices, IN MY HEAD

On top of borderline addiction, it's so hard to keep control
So I'll follow the rabbit hole down to the devils door
