Searching for the truth, for the truth shall set me free I'm running to the finish line but I'm out of breath and I'm going blind Blinded by the blur of this nauseating velocity Blinded by my own idea of what is good for me Blinded There is no shame admitting that you are lost There is no shame, we are one in the same There is no time to worship yesterday From now on I'll place my trust in this eternal forward motion You think you’ve figured it out, but if life's living you that's the wrong way round Why live in the past? All these people craving after years gone by makes me fear what lies ahead Trapped in, take eternity a day at a time Trapped in by standards set by someone else Eternal forward motion There is no time to worship yesterday From now on I'll place my trust in this eternal forward motion

Run your mouth, see how far you get Tall tales won’t carry you All the grief you're sending my way I just simply close the door Life's too short to blink an eye, At the words bleeding dry my respect for you Life's too short to understand the thoughts within your head I don't think I want to We don't see eye to eye Doesn't matter just live your own life We don't see eye to eye, Doesn't matter just live your life Every smile, I know there's something lurking Every word I know there's something Beneath It All Serpents Head Beneath It All You've made your bed New day, new scapegoat The fingers pointed right at me Time and time again you bang your head against the wall You'll never break through Doesn't matter what you do, results they stay the same, never change your attitude Doesn't matter what you do Results they stay the same, a weak mind will never win Beneath It All Serpents Head Beneath It All You've made your bed Sleepless nights filled with apathy Your dagger in my back will affect you more than it affects me When something affects the body, you cut out That's why I'll cut you out of my life Cut off the serpents head There's something lurking... So run your fucking mouth Beneath it all
3.
I'm paralysed with fear that the thrill of life has left my body, just like an empty shell waiting to turn to dust The years bloom with optimism and turn to black This happens over and over and over and over and over and over again Constant dull ache behind my eyes I want to crush those rose tinted glasses beneath my feet and let the glass bleed new life into me I once had youth on my side ’till it sold me out for the next one in line, and turned its back on me and said your on your own, on your fucking own A life of hard work doesn’t always pay in full Doesn’t always pay in full Constant dull ache behind my eyes

Harsh Truth 04:17
Well I'm not going to draw my curtains today No I'm not going to force a grin today There's a world outside that's full of shit but not guts inside to admit it No I'm not going to look outside today There's harsh truth in plain view A room of egg shells that we walk through There's harsh truth in plain view but we just stand and watch it as it all falls down Not going to draw my curtains Not going to force a grin today Because… There's harsh truth in plain view A room of egg shells that we walk through There's harsh truth in plain view but we just stand and stare There's harsh truth in plain view A room of egg shells that we walk through There's harsh truth in plain view, but we'll just stand and watch it as it all falls down

Force Fed 03:32
Force Fed Can’t believe what you say, you say it week after week No one asked you for your opinion I am so fucking bored of banging my head against the wall Just hand me the scissors I’ll cut off my ears Can’t you hear yourself? Maybe you did the same Force fed your views And your words don’t mean much to me The shower of shit that comes from your mouth And the words that I speak, just don’t get a chance to leave my mouth, before you cut me out Your personality comes crashing down on me I need to try and block that sink hole in your face Just hand me the hammer, and I’ll nail your mouth shut Silence is golden Force fed your views And your words don’t mean much to me The shower of shit that comes from your mouth And your voice is just white noise I’m tuning you out, I’ve had enough of you I’ll nail your mouth shut Just hand me the scissors I’ll cut off my ears Just hand me the scissors I’ll cut off my ears And your words don’t mean much to me The shower of shit that comes from your mouth I’ve heard your views force fed it
7.
The cracks are starting to reopen They were hidden and forgotten, but they were always there waiting to reopen A lump that can’t be swallowed Blood ties look at the mess we made Pushed to the back of our heads and locked away Looked down on ignored, Insignificant, your worth is more than you’ll ever know I remember the night you first told me You wanted to leave us The despair set in Blinded selfish We forgot you I kept the letters safe, covered up the mirrors Scared of your own reflection Vicious voices Piercing eyes We forgot you The problem that cannot be mentioned, It has a name
8.
The black seeps out of my eyes Shrouding the light Nothing will ever feel good again Nothing will feel right again Suspended in time Destroy me I can’t feel anymore The blackness is suffocating Caging my lungs Squeezing the last breath of air out of my lungs, until there’s Nothing left Broken and miss lead, wallowing in sorrow I am suspended in emptiness
9.
I’m selling a lie Appearances are everything In my mind I’m a far cry behind, but I’ll keep portraying this false identity Things aren’t always as they seem, when they are seen through the filter This picture perfect life, free of all imperfections Everyone is selling themselves Everyone is selling themselves short I judge myself by others success I rate my life second to yours Nothing seems to be good enough Nothing fills the hole Always concerned on what I am lacking Forever failing to live in this moment Existence spent Wallowing as life passes me by I struggle to keep my feet flat on the ground My head space is defying the earths gravity Reality filter A life time spent failing to live in this moment

Owed Zero 04:07
This skin is thick All the shots you fire ricochet No time for the naysayers, because I won’t wait for mediocrity to be my saving grace So why settle for anything less than what I really want? I won’t be a part of a generation content with a sold out dream No want for tomorrow, bored of living You’re owed zero Owed nothing, take everything And I’ve seen it happen to the best of us Sometimes you forget that your hearts beating If you listen carefully you can hear it screaming You’re owed zero What’s the point in waiting? Don’t be laid to rest without a legacy to leave behind Owed nothing, take everything Your life is a temporary bandage on a permanent wound Keep on paving the way on the dull life you lead to find a mirror with a grim reflection, staring back with its black teeth and hollow eyes that try to tell you something you should have noticed years ago, the world owes you zero Zero I will build my own path, that’s my birth right
11.
Skeleton contorted by wind that shapes me Skin hardened by the bitter kiss of winter Light shines through the bare bones of yesterday and I know there’s hope for tomorrow Lights are on, cold caress of a new day in my lungs Trees stand like bones across the blue sky This is all I ever wanted, as it turns out this is all I’ll ever need I ache, pins and needles Won’t stop, days slip by But the promise of tomorrow keeps me breathless Trudging through my clouded mind Worthless to the thoughts in my head Ice filled lashes Cold burned faces Pale wrists I know there’s beauty in this, but I can’t see it in the dark These nights are too long Dry skin breaks as I clench my fists The trees are baron, just like the days going by The shadows shrink as the light grows stronger Those lonely nights staring into the abyss Something keeps me from slipping, three words in my head… Open your eyes
