Track Name: Live Without
Life is a total let down, brace
brace yourself for the disappointment to come
tried your best
too bad it wasn’t good enough for the rest
fuck them
learn to live - with out
learn to live - with out
Learn to live without any of your dreams
no one ever told me
life is a total let down
Track Name: Watching Films To Forget I Exist
I would try and climb these walls
but I am scared
that there is barbed wire waiting at the top
I keep coming to these conclusions, that this is how to live
but it doesn’t help all the confusion
17 and no dreams break a leg, break a leg
eyes on you
make a move
like the rest
just as they do
they all make it look so easy, but it really isn’t
now climb into your grave
let’s hope you dug it deep, and not shallow
like our expectations for you
your just one more name on the list
nothing new, nothing special
raise your hand feel the blade
fix a drink reminisce to when you could tolerate life
till all hope bled, from your outlook
to the ones with the sun in their eyes
good for you, your way of life I refrain
nothing to you
eyes on you
make a move
eyes on you
see it through
there’s no motivation to be perfect
there’s no motivation to be… like you
severed from
my life
nothing to prove
nothing to lose but it all
severed from my life
nothing to prove
lose it all
I’ve got to, pretend that life isn’t really happening
lost it all
I need to, convince myself that I don’t exist
I could start dreaming, but how do I dream when I cannot sleep?
I could start wishing, but what do I wish for when I don’t know what I want?
Track Name: Greyer Than You Remember
I locked all the doors, just to keep me safe
but my demons are here with me, and they won’t let me rest
I must be a sinner, for this is surely hell?
No one else is here with me
just ghosts from my past

Let me know if I’m still alive
let me read between these withered lines
I’ve been here before but don’t remember your name
I forget more of myself each day I still manage to breathe

They always whisper to me, they whisper all day long
please don’t sigh
I thought I told you before
can you hear them to?
am I the only one?
I won’t sigh
anymore

Now just keep your promise, don’t bother me anymore
I’ll smile through the sadness, as wolves scratch at the door
I stand here alone, amongst these faceless and nameless people
who shout my name

Been left alone, to expire in this place
but in their eyes, I died years ago
endless
I am the one, that time forgot
mercy, she loves me not
I am the one, that time forgot
misery stole my heart
and it will tear it apart

you became a burden, made me ache
you became a strain

I locked you, locked you away
let the sun set on this eternal day
I’m unwanted.
Track Name: Threads
I would trade my dreams for you, would you do the same?
please amplify your thoughts
but I know if I don’t tie you up, with my thread you’ll try and run
run away again, again

each day you drift, further
please don’t go, don’t go

I cannot sleep tonight, I would like to cling to your frame
like the clothes on your skin
I want to be the particles in the air you breathe
I want to be, the light in everything you see

I walk no path, no one made on for me

what is this love, what is this curse?
I’ve been living a lie, never again

I would trade it all for you
sometimes its just best to accept the way things are

I would trade my life
if I had one to give
nothing.
Track Name: No One's Perfect, This Includes You
Nothing stays the same apart from you
you’ve been stuck in the same place growing weaker
you’ve let your life overwhelm you
you struggle to swim in this sea of regret

regret, consumes you
the tide propels you in -
the wrong direction
treading water for safety
regret, becomes you

It’s flowing through your veins
I’ll try and heal all your wounds
but your regret, will rip them open again
I’ve never seen you succeed
you’ll succeed at not trying and failing again
your words of wisdom have never been given
I’ll throw myself in the deep end and…

Caught in the riptide of regret
will you learn how to swim, or will you sink?
try and hold your breathe
Caught in the riptide of regret
you’re going to drown
like all the …

How much time do you need to correct a lifetime of mistakes?
20 years and nothing’s changed
20 years you’re still the same
stop and look at what you’ve become
sink or swim?
stop and look at what you’ve become
you can’t hold your breathe forever

you can’t hold your breathe forever
you will have to open your lungs
and breathe in the life you’ve never had
never seen, never lived.
Track Name: Bones To Break
These bones were never meant to be old, lasting
they grow weak, weaker and weaker
each year

rest assured, this is not about you
I am withered with every year
I am withered with every winter

Each one gets colder
season gets longer
I’ll graciously bow out of this endless cycle

We’re wasting away
everyone feels it too

Everyone is the same
everyone has the tendency to break
everyone is the same
these bones, these bones were made to break

Everyone is the same
these bones were made to break

Bones to break
Track Name: Tower Mouth
Let it all bleed
but don’t waste a drop
the crowd are staring at you
needless to say they don’t care, quit it

I feel forced
please can you help me?
I can’t think for myself
just try and help you
you’re living life with the lights off
but with my guidance I’ll save you
I’ll make it through
good thing I figured it out

Mark my words, I was right this whole time
I’m just leaving to preach
I am the worst

Don’t give in, don’t give in
think it through, don’t pretend
don’t give in, don’t give in
I promise you’ll regret this

Don’t respond to their ransom
don’t respond to their threats
Don’t respond to their ransom
you’ll follow and regret

There’s no time to surrender
don’t give in, don’t give in
there’s no time to remember
don’t repent, don’t repent

you fell from your high horse and shattered all of your bones
above no one, above nothing you’re just the same
Track Name: Beg For Rain
We bury our feelings and prey they don’t come back
life comes down like the rain
my home is with you

The locusts are feeding, our future is bleeding
this lust is running through my veins

Beg for rain

Dark days this is surreal
my eyes are green, there is everything to lose
but we always want more
to death we fight with ourselves
just plead your heart won’t escape

We take, we take
we never learn from our mistakes
the only difference is time
so open your eyes
or this will always haunt you

I beg for rain
now this is haunting me
I beg for rain
Track Name: Bury Yourself (Deep)
You are not alone
but you are turning numb
addiction to sadness is eclipsing the sun

Bury yourself deep

Worship your sadness drown in your misery

You live to hate yourself

Worship your sadness drown in your misery, now

Sabotage your chance of happiness
just for a shred, shred of recognition

No one is listening
and no one, cares about your lies
try somewhere else
we’ve wised up to the shit you sell
no one’s convinced

I’ve been counting the days
until this dies
you’ll fade like the others, into the abyss
still counting the days
you’ll never learn
why am I waiting?

Your views have been led astray
this skin, these bones
won’t last forever

Worn out excuses, fantasised hardships
will crush my will to live
why reach for the light?
when you flourish in darkness?
I’ve never been more disgusted
You’ve never tried harder
your efforts are pointless, you’re fooling no one

Your eyes will always be closed
you mind will stay closed
never to be remembered, you’re just a failure

Failing life.
Track Name: As Cold As The Rest
Let’s forget about 200,000 years of evolution
and just stop existing
let the air be clean, the river run clear and the roots reclaim the roads
turn a blind eye to anything and everything positive humanity has offered
every emotion, connection and heart-stopping moment
let us see only humanities flaws and dwell on every mistake man has made
rather than seeing all of the problems we have overcome, and everything we’ve achieved from nothing…

Or we could learn from our mistakes, and better ourselves as humans
rather than making the divide between you and me wider
don’t be cold, don’t be heartless
remember, no one has the answers.

We were given hands to feed
but some use them to bleed
all you humanity from our lives

In a world a full as ours
14,000 born every hour
I have never felt so alone




Seeking pain in the world validates your life
outspoken above all, you’re as bad as the one’s you…
seeking pain in the world validates your life
outspoken above all, you’re as bad as the one’s you hate

There’s truth in the words you speak, but that doesn’t mean that you know it all

Cold as the rest

You think I should leave
but this world created me

This world created me.
