Track Name: Void Ambition
To dust

If passion had a motive
it would be to tear me apart
I am truly its captive
Surrendered to it’s hold

I can’t sleep anymore

Wide awake
Wide awake, I am a slave to myself
Wide awake, I set fire to myself

Sadness is etched in your face
I can see it under your eyes
I can see it in the cracks in your skin
You can see it even when you sleep

I would never trade my life
trade my life for yours
Sold your soul to the lie you live

I will let this break me
I will let this break me
Let this burn me out

Reduced to ash
By what burns in me
I will live unburdened
Reduced to ash
By what burns in me
I will live unburdened by the
Overwhelming feeling
That I through it all away
I will let this break me
I will let this burn me out
I will be ripped apart

Fate unlived, path unwalked
This could never be

FORGIVEN
Track Name: Good For Nothing
Do you even stand for what you preach?
Or is it just for validation?
You make it your purpose just to teach, but it comes across like a contradiction
I’ve made it this far without you and I’ll make it further yet
So spare me your fake words of praise


Does it matter what I do ‘cause I’m good for nothing?
My hard work falls on deaf ears
Your view on equality smells like hypocrisy
I’m sorry did I offend you?


Please stop, trying so fucking hard
Your intentions are good but they are being forced
There’s nothing wrong with your compliments as long as they are genuine
Just please don’t patronise me
I’ve made it this far without you and I’ll make it further yet
So spare me your fake words of praise


Does it matter what I do ‘cause I’m good for nothing?
My hard work falls on deaf ears
Your view on equality smells like hypocrisy
I’m sorry did I offend you?


Stop trying

Good, good for nothing
That is what I am judged by your standards
Good, good for nothing
That is what I am- cause you’re not listening to a word that I am - saying
Track Name: Platform 89
I passed you today
You don’t hold yourself
The same way you used to
Back when you, you still had a smile

It’s cold outside
And that train is not taking you home

Condemned to live on the threshold

There is no love for you
Stripped from your birth right, birth right is death
Where were they when you needed them
Unwanted children of this lonely world

Misery loves company
Chained to misery

Keep your head high however you can
Topping up so you don’t hollow out

To replace where your heart used to be

Keep your head high however you can
Topping up so you don’t hollow out

Sick with jealously of all with love in their lives
Guarded backs

On the threshold of the warmth of your world
And the bleakness outside

Just for a glimpse of your world
I’d do fucking anything

Stuck in purgatory
Trapped in death’s waiting room

That train came in the end
Fade into the night
Track Name: Lethargy
Please move on, turn away, don’t look back

You laugh as long as you can to fill the void
Unreplenished emptiness, so empty yet there’s only room for one
Perhaps it was your own fault, but you’ll never admit it
Your heart seems to have disappeared and left a hole
I feel sick, i feel dread
Please don’t stay
I beg and i plead, please don’t stay

Why do you keep going back
Your memories are fading
I can’t understand your apathy for life
See you in 10 years time

The same person
Nothing has changed
And never will
Bound to your ignorance

The same person
Nothing has changed
The same person
And never will

A ghost haunting your own life
Track Name: I Spend My Days (Wishing Them Away)
When I look to the future it’s no good because it’s out of focus
Taking comfort from the past, is what I do when I’m feeling helpless
I’m all for staying positive but there’s something standing in the way
Repetition of the dullest form, I can feel my life eroding

Tunnel vision
This sick paranoia
I spend my days wishing them away
Strangest feeling, my life has turned to grey
I spend my days wishing them away

When I sleep I don’t really sleep
I just lay there staring at my eye lids
I don't know what I want to do today or for the rest of my life

Tunnel vision
This sick paranoia
I spend my days wishing them away
Strangest feeling my life has turned to grey
I spend my days wishing them away
Today
Today is just a reflection
Of yesterday

Mirrored Reflection
Track Name: Never Falls Far
I was born to the world
but no one willing to receive
in the blossom of my generations spring
flowers blind, withering

Observe and then repeat,
this mistreatment done to me
I am the living effigy
of each depressing memory

If time has proved one thing,
If you kick the cage you must suffer the bite

My arms bent backwards
Legs twisted out of shape
Disgusting mess of a human
Limbs form a cell I can’t escape

Self medication, the path I’ have been led
a fear of all things lucid

When I try to stand the
ground falls away from my feet

Free falling in this hell
you have made your home
Your safety nets in place
No one will catch me

I’m just a victim of my surroundings
Born with a blade to my throat

Shout at the sky
Scream into the void
Track Name: The Warmth Of A Dying Sun
When I was born
I was promised the world
to keep dragging through
with out complaining

i want contentment
But All I have is scorn

In - the - back of my mind
I - know that I’m in -
the - warmth - of
a - dying sun

I found solace in
anything that I could
distract my mind From
this impending failure

You brought me to this earth
but you can’t
expect me to follow you

I will not be forced
to be miserable
even if happiness
is temporary

I accept my fate
and I’ll smile through the worst

The world is losing light
and there’s nothing left to borrow
I was promised so much
but all that is left
are these bones and false gold
bones and false gold

I found something sacred

Walk this
path paved with silver and gold
To find it goes nowhere

I walk on in the warmth of a dying sun
Track Name: Church Of Mirrors
Gaze into the glass
See your loyal audience

You’re a God, they worship you, kneel before your feet

You feel the need to display your shallow life
When you see the recognition, you feel divine

Archiving nothingness
To show to the ones blessed
Enraptured by your beauty

Seeking constant approval
From absolute strangers
Is a danger to your ego

You are Narcissus
Look into the water
Fall in love with the person staring back at you

You are a narcissist
Vanity consumed you whole, fixated with yourself

I’ll be your nemesis
Fall in love with yourself and lose the will to live

You built a world
That revolves around you
Until tossed aside
Like a faded pearl
And all that’s left
Frozen memories
Buried in a pixelated world
You worship in a church of mirrors
Track Name: Half Life
Never realised how much I took my life for granted
BITTER
This shadow won’t shift
Rain clouds that never burst
HINDSIGHT

Nothing grows in the shade
Fragments of my life just burn away

Hollow, jaded, a heart with no hope
Part of me is missing, can’t you see?
Half life

Don’t you dismiss the way I feel
I CAN’T run away from my thoughts
I wish the ground would swallow me
Curse the clouds that have followed me


Desperate for normality
a shred of consistency
Everyday is worse than the last
every time I reach forward my hands rot away
Revealing delicate nerves where skin used to be
please let me live again

I’ve been searching in the dark
for the other half of me

Composed with a stiff upper lip
and yet dying on the inside

Nothing grows in the shade
Fragments of my life just burn away


Hollow, jaded, a heart with no hope
Searching for the other half of me
Track Name: Apple Tree
Every time I look in the mirror
I see your ghost in the bones of my face
I am your legacy but what that means I fail to see
If It’s not good enough for you
What makes it good enough for me
This passed down strain that won’t be defeated
The things we share makes the cross I bear
