Track Name: The Fine Print
There lies no future here.

What happened to the futures we were promised? Bright lights we ran towards?

I’ve made mistakes, but never the progress.

I am lost.
Track Name: Smoke & Mirrors
Another night spent turning to rust. Another year spent wasting away. Wondering ‘How did times get so desperate?’. Walking the line between dead & awake.

What will it take for our eyes to stay open? And appreciate this life for what is truly important.

This is all a fierce mimicry of lives not lived.
This is all a fierce mimicry of lives I promised I would never live.

Where did we go wrong?
Where did we go wrong?

Your downfall began so long ago. Wasting time as hypocrites, As washed up fragments of who we used to be.

This is all a fierce mimicry of lives not lived.
This is all a fierce mimicry of lives I promised I would never live.

I promised myself I wont become like you.
I promised myself I wont become like you.

Where did we go wrong?
We’ve lived these lies for far too long.
Where will you be when you realize that this is all a fierce mimicry of life?
Track Name: For What It's Worth
How can you stand on your own two feet
with your ankles bruised and broken?
Collapsing under the weight of the world on your shoulders.

I can’t believe it’s come to this. Inches, so close to giving in.
The grip in which we found our solace now begins to slip.

I wont pretend to know how things got this bad or how we ended up here.

But I will see this through.

I’ve been so close to giving up so many times. So you can know this to be true:

I’m not giving up on you.

When this all collapses, and when this all falls through who will be there to:

Break my fall when I’ve got nothing left to lose?
I would be nothing without you.When this all goes wrong & when this all falls through.Who will be there to catch me?

I would be nothing without you.

Everything you've built & everything you’ve earned, Doesn't come close to all the things that you deserve.

When this all goes wrong & when this all falls through.Who will be there to catch me?

I would be nothing without.
Track Name: Wearing Thin
We don’t live, We just survive. Dead still while time eats us alive.Dust will settle, smoke will clear. You can’t outrun what you fear.

I cant waste another year chasing a dream that will never see the light.
I gave up the chance to rebuild my life, For empty rooms and endless drives.This is all I have. This is it. My everything.I‘d never expect you to understand, But this means more to me than you could comprehend.

I sometimes think this is all that remains for me.
Not depths. Not heights. Just constant in betweens.

At times, this practice seems so pointless. But there’s a reason. There’s always a purpose.
I’m always hoping for things to improve. But how many days can I afford to waste?The pressure is mounting. I don’t know how much more I can take. I cant face the truth if the truth’s a life without you.

I cant face the truth if the truth’s a life without you.

This is all I have.
Track Name: Doubt
It’s just the same old thing again. Making promises I’ll never keep
I need a change now more than ever.
Days don't change, they just repeat.

I swear the world is against me, But what I failed to recognize is I’m my own worst enemy. The reason I’d been left behind.

Struggling to cope. Yet, I clung to the belief : No matter how much I suffered this would not defeat me.

Its been days since I’ve looked at myself. I just cant face the failure I’d became.

I wish I could see things from a different perspective.
Where ‘Doubt is worse than failure‘was something I believed in.

Is there such a thing as hope? & does it dwell within me?
(dwell within me?)

If I knew there was a way out, I would crawl on my hands & knees.
(hands & knees)

Take a step back & reminisce. I’ve never felt less like myself, But I know I’m worth so much more than this.

I’m worth so much more than this.

What it boils down to is: Happiness in life is what you make it.
Track Name: Tooth & Nail feat. Mitch Whaley
Just give up on me because I refuse to accept what you call happiness. This faulse reality.
There’s a comfort in knowing there’s no way back from here.
That I’m a lost cause.

I want to live for days like these. The nights I’ll never regret.
It doesn’t matter what happens next, because it’s living in the present people tend to forget.

The here & now or do you live in the past? Trying hard to make those memories last.Gritted teeth. A dead end road. Never quite know how to let go. That’s just the ebb & flow.

We built this city on broken bones.

Tooth & Nail.
Tooth & Nail.

The fear of change is not haunting me. Steal yourself, resist & stand against this morbid dream.

The fear of change is not haunting me.
The fear of change is not haunting me.

Despite what you believe, I’m not as hopeless as you think.
Despite what you believe, I’m not as hopeless as you think.

Losing sight of what it means to truly feel alive.I know my life is a mess but it’s all that makes sense.I know my life is a mess, But this mess makes so much sense.

I’m just doing what seems right to me.I truly hope you’re proud of the person I’ve grown to be.
