Track Name: Winter
And when night hits we summon the dead.
Reunited with a shrouded love in this broken bed.
The love we shared starts to fray.
A heart hanging from a thread.
When will I find my way?

The hands I use to hold onto became the rope around my fucking neck.
So tell me what the fuck is left inside this caving chest?
An empty shell of the man I was lacking anything but regret.

We took a vow that night amongst the light of a winter moon.
Staring at stars as we whittled our names into the woods.
You left me lurking in silence, searching for a life amidst the dead.
An empty shell of the man I was, lacking anything but regret.

I will not fall for this winter plague.
My legs grow numb and these grow vague.
I will not fade away.

Like roses in the night we wilt upon the shadow we form.
Forever bathed moonlight, bleeding from our own thorns.

Like roses in the night we wilt upon the shadow we form.
Forever bathed moonlight.

You speak with silver though your words remain in rust.
Captured in your eyes.
You are my high.
You are a must.
I must confess I cannot stand where I am left.
The dream we once wove withers with emptiness.
Track Name: Shit Talker
Yeah, raise your hands in the air with me if you've ever been told that you could never be anything, anyone, you're only pathetic.
Don't let them get to you, don't you fucking let it.

I've lived my life.
I've learnt my name, no regrets.
Though can you say the same?

We'll stand strong, we'll stand brave.
We'll stand by each other through the darkest of days.
They can say what they want.
They can say what they feel.
We don't hear a word they say.

Yeah, raise your hands in the air with me if you've ever been told that you could never be anything, anyone, you're only pathetic.
Don't let them get to you, don't you fucking let it.

You're just a fucking mess dressed in regret from the success that you never met.
You can't keep up with the rest.
That's what you get when you fuck with the best.

You'll be strangled by the smoke and wrapped beneath the water.
Shit talker, I'm calling you out.
Shit talker.

We'll stand strong, we'll stand brave.
We'll stand by each other through the darkest of days.
They can say what they want.
They can say what they feel.
We don't hear a word they say.
Track Name: Contempt & Defeat
I've spent years tending these absent arteries.
Eroding by your side has never felt so hard for me.
Contempt & defeat, the fuel that my body seems to seep and bleed.

I'm caught in this void I created on my own.
I can't stand another second living this routine.
Bearing this weight has left me bare to the bone and I can promise you that this is killing me.

I am still breathing.
I'm stronger than I was the day before.
All of these demons, I've picked them up threw them out the door.
And I'll move forward.
Tomorrow is another day to live.
I'll never forget this.
It's time to move on, it's time to forgive.

And I know that you knew that it was killing me, I could not change the view.
I sat for years in soil waiting for you to bloom.
I only seemed to share these nights with the moon.
It was you.

Don't you forget I was there for you, standing under the weight slowly shading blue.
I wish that I could undo everything to do with you.

What my eyes seemed to avoid was the flame singeing a void.
Pouring smoke into your lungs.
You are the song I wish I never fucking sung.

I am still breathing.
I'm stronger than I was the day before.
All of these demons, I've picked them up threw them out the door.
And I'll move forward.
Tomorrow is another day to live.
I'll never forget this.
It's time to move on, it's time to forgive.
Track Name: Mayhem
Come forth and rid me of this fucking anger, it drives deep inside tearing at my god damn mind.
My morals are left a blur.
The only hope that I have is that you get what you deserve.
I can see you shaking in your skin, scared to face the demon you let in.

I've been waiting forever to see your face, from dusk till dawn I wait.

Every day is a constant reminder of what you've become and every night is the same, a new breath to feel numb.
Every day is a constant reminder of what you've become and every night is the same, a new breath to feel numb.

You spineless fucking pig I hope you burn for what you did.
You spineless fucking pig I hope you burn for what you did.

You have no fucking backbone, an antagonist of sticks and stones.
I hope you burn, burn, burn for what you did to her.
Burn, burn, burn for what you did to her.

Every day is a constant reminder of what you've become and every night is the same, a new breath to feel numb.
Every day is a constant reminder of what you've become and every night is the same, a new breath to feel numb.

And when the day finally comes that I can speak my mind I hope you realise that you're out of time.
The day you're gone is the day I live.
I'll keep this hatred close and never forgive.
Never forgive.

It's a certain shade of black crawling through my veins.
A venom that I can't seem to shake.
Never forgive.

Never forgive.
Track Name: Broken Home
Give me life for a new day.
I don't want to stay buried in this fucking grave.
Will I remain slave to this body dissipating in grey?
I've got insects crawling through my veins and I can't find a way to escape.

I've lost my compass, I've lost my way.
I sit and stare at the flowers on my fucking grave.

I carve my name into headstones to remind the world I died years ago.

You are haunted by the son you never wanted.
I was born dead.

Home the overlapping cracks in the road sown to the flowers and stones.
I cannot stand these colors or tones, so lead me where I don't need to roam.

You may have gave me life but you took it away the day strayed and left me consumed grey.
You may have gave me life but you took it away the day strayed and left me.
I was nothing.

Please father, put your needle down.
Stay with me, help raise me off the ground.
Please mother, don't be angry now.
All I've ever done was try to make you proud.
