Track Name: Grasping At Straws
It feels I'm grasping at straws
These wounds are much too raw
Thoughts make my skin start to crawl
I am prepared for the fall

How did I not see the signs
They were in front of my eyes
I feel inspired to die
There is no light in my life
Track Name: Weight Of The World
We're all stranded together
We're all moving parts
In their bigger picture
But it's all falling apart

Nostrils burning
With the stench of betrayal
Can't get the taste
Of deceite out my mouth

The maze that we race
Day after day
Would you still feel the same
If you knew you were part of their game

The dust may have settled
But oppresion takes hold
Don't be crushed by the pressure
The weight of the world
Track Name: Erase
My life's uphill
Like trying to fit square blocks
In a round hole
Where is my place of comfort
Where is my home

I've been walking barefoot on glass for miles
Trying to erase history clean
No redemption given
No shelter no peace

No redemption given
No shelter no peace

No shelter no peace
Track Name: Plummet (FT: Joey Southside)
Facing the reaper
Biting the bullet
Choosing to plummet
Into the nothing

Stuck in a doldrum
With no wind in my black sails
No will to move forward
Nihilistic burden

Facing the reaper
Biting the bullet
Choosing to plummet

I choose to plummet
To fall short
To watch it all burn

This addiction to failure
Is getting old
Track Name: Shinigami
Sunrise sunset
Repeat til death

I learned the hard way
The ones that you love may not be there tomorrow
I learned the hard way
You have to say I love you when you say goodbye

I learned the hard way
Everything I love will eventually die
I learned the hard way
To be born is just to die

I learned the hard way
Too many times

Childhood's over
The moment you know one day
You're gonna die

Sunrise sunset
Repeat til death

Curse tomorrow
I hope it never comes
I've grown tired
Of counting setting suns

Childhood's over
The moment you know one day
You're gonna die

Childhood's over
I learned the hard way
Track Name: The Circle
Slow down
Stay Young
And try to survive

Grow up
Get old
Get ready to die

The Circle
This is what I call The Circle
This life's just a circle
Everything's just a circle
Track Name: Oubliette PT:II
Another non sequitur
A ruse, a cover
You're lying through your nicotine stained teeth
They are yellow just like your intentions

Left In the oubliette
Out of sight out of mind
Till the end of time
My bones turn to dust

Out of sight, Out of mind
In the oubliette,
my bones turn to dust

Discarded, displaced, Disposed of, Disgraced
forgotten In the oubliette with my vanity and shame

Left In the oubliette
Out of sight out of mind
Till the end of time
My bones turn to dust

Out of sight, Out of mind
In the oubliette,
my bones turn to dust

Like Sisyphus I am bound to this hell
Rolling boulders up and down this hill
Right back up, then right back down
Waiting in the rain hoping to drown

Yeah you mother fuckers

This is the hell to which I am bound
Track Name: High Friends/Low Places (FT: Scot Moriarty)
High friends
Low Places
Six feet deep
My life's in pieces

Another down
I hope I'm next
I've grown tired
Of this constant death

I've evolved from the spineless creature I was
I have risen from the dust, dirt and mud
I will cast away this vile drug
That has taken away everything I love

Walking upright after crawling for life
Wasted time leaves me empty inside
How many graves must be filled with our friends
Before this all comes to an end

(You're deified through tragedy)
Track Name: Haunted
I feel filthy
Used, unwanted
My past returns
In my dreams I'm haunted

The blame lays on me
I've burned my bridges
With flames of jealousy
And a lack of trust

Green with envy
I was caught red handed
And lied til I was blue in the face
Now my soul is black
Everything fades to gray
Save the heartbreak and cliches

Haunted by the eyes
That lied so many times
Torn apart our lives
Like wings from a fly
These ghosts won't let me rest

Save the heartbreak and chiches
I am haunted in my dreams
I wish I can go in my sleep
So my nightmares stretch on forever

I wish I can go in my sleep
So my nightmares stretch on forever
