Track Name: It's Not Like Hell Could Be Worse Than This
Now comes a time
of unexpected change
Cycles shift, tables turn
No need to place the blame

And how could it be
that it all fell apart?
I’ve been cursed with a void
deep inside this heart

There comes a time along the line
Where our wills are tested
Our faith defined

There comes a time in all our lives
Where we carry sorrow
but we must move on

I held you close
I called you home
You took it all
You walked away
I’ll cast the stone
I’ll turn the page
Take back the pieces and let them complete me

And I felt the pain
Of losing everything
I had never felt so empty
But all of those moments
Are long-gone to me
I was so blind
But now I see

All your true colors
Are peaking for all to see
So let live
the rest of my life
Without you here by my side

I held you close
I called you home
You took it all
You walked away
I’ll cast the stone
I’ll turn the page
Take back the pieces and let them complete me

I held you close
I called you home
You walked away
I held you close
I called you home
I'll turn the page
Track Name: 12.6.06.
My future shines so bright
This light brings so much life
If only I could show you
Oh, if you could see
All of it’s beauty
No, it’s missing you

I felt time
Stop beneath my feet
At the sound of a crack
It sent shivers up my spine
At least I made it out alive

I feel you burn
And I want to let you in
The time in here
Flows beneath my skin
I’ve felt you like an echo
You keep drawing me closer
The time in here’s
Been spent in silence

Speak to me
Oh, love, speak to me
You must speak to me
Oh, love, speak to me

You must see right through me
If you keep crying
You must not feel me here
If you’re so silent

Why won’t you just
Why can’t you just
Why don’t you just
Fucking acknowledge me?
What will it take
To make you see
That it’s my face
Inside your dreams
I keep on trying to make contact
Hoping that you see that I made it back
I’m right here with
You don’t you feel
My love?

Please don’t go
I don’t want to lose you
I don’t want to be all alone
If I don’t go
I don’t think I can stay
I need to go
To keep life this way

How could you die
Without saying goodbye?
How can we move on
If we can’t find closure?
Please come back
I need you here
Please come back
It’s just not fair

Your final breath
Was filled with summer air

I feel you burn
I pull you in
You feel me like an echo
And begin to see
The time in here
Will no longer be silent
If you speak to me
My love
You just did
Track Name: My Reflection(s)
These thoughts obscure my vision
Oh these thoughts, they blur the lines
Illuminate my darkest moments
In my head, what it all confines
What is the sense if I've already tried?
The pain’s too immense for these thoughts to subside

Ambition depleting

It’s what I’m running from
I’m not the person I thought I’d become
Another day, a different me
Please reflect the good inside

They mirror me in dissonant complacency
They reflect me in mundane immediacy
Put the coins over my eyes
For now my demons can comprise
A compilation of figurative follies
Dead bones and shattered dreams

It’s what I’m running from
I’m not the person I thought I’d become
Another day, a different me
Please reflect the good inside
Cause I want them to see all of the good in me
It just gets so hard
When you don’t know who you really are

I’m not afraid of the dark
There’s no monsters under my bed
But there are voices
there are voices in my head

In my reflection
I don’t see my face
Oh, my reflections
they don’t feel a thing

It’s what I’m running from
I’m not the person I thought I’d become
Another day, a different me
Please reflect the good inside
I want them to see the good in me
It just gets so hard
When you don’t know who you really are

Heal me, complete me, destroy me, dispose of me
Track Name: Red October
I will defy
Every word you speak

To my avail, I see the light
Darkness, my plight but not my divine
To my amazement, the world I seeked
Swallowed me whole and became my dream

Oh, what a wonder
I am awake
I fail to see the death in me
Oh, what a wonder
I am awake
I fail to see
The death in me

For too long
I failed to see the beauty
In the pain
Now I sustain
Carry the weight
I held for too long
For I am free

Pour out every ounce of me
See all of the words I bleed
Breath in every ounce of peace
I just want to change my life

I misheard
I thought I could
Take the time to listen
I misheard
I thought I would
Have a chance to speak
I’ve found this voice
Now It’s time to be heard

For too long
I failed to see the beauty
In the pain
Now I sustain
Carry the weight
I held for too long
For I am free
All of the words
I chose to swallow
Now leave this vessel

Now it’s my turn

It’s my turn to speak
And yours to listen

Let me speak

I failed to see the beauty
You failed to listen to me
