Track Name: Take My Body Away
There's nothing left to fear, but the iron roots
growing inside of me.
My body is heavy.
I'll become one with soil.
Take my body away, please take my body away.
This is not a war.
Acceptance; I accept this.
Track Name: Heaven
I won't succumb to the cold.
I will withhold.
Ready me.
Ready me for the feelings to come.
Underneath the snow and the dirt.
Heaven.
I feel nothing.
Track Name: Always Losing
Awaken me, to the smell of animosity.
It wreaks of separation between torn limbs.
I chose this.
Always fucking losing.
Never feeling.
Track Name: Never Feeling
Violation.
The words alone drown the sound of distortion.
Mutilation.
If only I could take a step back.
Dissipation.
Ridding myself of all there is to know.
Revenge on the tip of my tongue, I have no regret.
As the sun sets, the leeches begin to crawl.
You have never looked so beautiful before.
Dead weight, the rope pulls deeper.
To say goodbye, or to welcome death.
I'll never know.
The feeling is mutual.
Track Name: Widower
How many times will the siren sound before you understand?
I can't escape the thought of you anywhere but here.
I am alone.
I can't ever be hurt.
I can no longer balance on my own feet.
I can't escape the thought of you anywhere but here.
I am alone.
I will never be hurt.
I can no longer balance on my own feet.
False love, false hope, false lives.
Death couldn't have been more of a blessing, to find out I was only lied to from the start.
I won't leave.
I will never leave.
Is this it again?
Don't say anything to me.
There he is again, but everyone is going to be the one to control you.
Track Name: Swan Song
To be missed is to be loved, and I haven't felt such a thing in a while,
but it's times like these that I've lost all hope.
This is not the way it played out in my dreams.
Pay attention when I say it's not worth it.
Importance will save the hearts of many,
as I will mend the lives of those who don't have much.
I won't let you out, and I say.
This is not the way it played out in my dreams.
Pay attention when I say it's not worth it.
This is not the way I would love, live or die.
False love.
This is not the way.
There's nothing left for me.
Track Name: In Shambles
Time tearing away at your skin,
I've come to find nothing more,
but hollow bones.
A hollow heart.
A bastardizing drone.
Exercise your self worth, if it will make you feel more of a human being.
There are no roots here strong enough to hold in the soil.
You will fall.
You will fail.
A cracked door slowly opens,
to find my own life in shambles.
Track Name: Endless Sleep
Lead astray from usual endeavors,
in search of something I would like to call my own.
Transient happiness, always cursed.
I roam alone.
Transient blindness, always lost.
An empty room.
Veins at my disposal, I fall into an endless sleep.
Remember me.
Just look harder, as my intentions grow a little darker.
Nothing ever seems to go my way.
Deserted, secluded to these four walls.
The months will pass, I will never forget.
I am cursed and alone.
Veins at my disposal, I fall into an endless sleep.
The lies pour from the severed ends,
as you drown in your own shame.
Track Name: Die Young
When I look up, all I see is the empty sky
and I know there is nothing.
There is no one.
No one to lift the weight of existence off of my shoulders.
The only life worth living is the darkness beneath my eyes.
The dream doesn't exist anymore.
It never has.
It never will.
Am I the only one that can feel this pain in my heart?
The pain is so pure, it blinds me.
Don’t make the mistake.
Die young, while you still have the chance.
Track Name: Faithless
To the ground, they led me.
Just another tasteless mistake.
Lost in my own body, lost in my own head.
Never at peace.
Motivate me to breathe.
I'm sure we'll all feel useless in the end.
Promises are worthless.
Here's to the depression.
Those haunting, dead eyes
seem to see into the infinite.
Somehow this dead air is peaceful.
Where is God throughout this?
He's gone.
Leave me here.
It's sick, but I need this.
To suffer brings a pleasure
unknown to me before.
I've fallen in love with this.
I'm no longer afraid.
Where is God throughout this?
Track Name: Promises Of Forever
Take my hand and I'll lead you into the void.
The older we get, the colder our hands become.
The older we get, the colder our hands become.
Beware what you waste, time goes only one way.
The older we get, the colder our hands become.
I've sold it off, I've dropped the ball.
The older we get, the colder our hands become.
Don't talk the talk when you only crawl.
The older we get, the colder our hands become.
About your bad day, there's more on the way.
Beware what you waste, time goes only one way,
and I can't recall good things at all.
Beware what you waste, time goes only one way.
There's just what's left, nothing before.
The older we get, no one quite like me to destroy everything.
With a jaw split wide open,
the lies seep through the broken teeth.
Track Name: Leave Me
Feed from another source.
Leave me to suffer.
Leave me to drown.
In my own blood and tears.
I will rot with the dirt.
I can feel myself slipping away.
Slipping away from everything.
Disconnected.
