Track Name: This Means War
Enjoy your arrogance, In a world full of ignorance
We chose to step aside, Become a part of the new divide
A rare breed, Bred from damaged seeds
While fists kept erupting
Holding out hands of giving

If words are our bond
You're too easily broken
If words are our bond
You're too easily broken

Watch as you fade away, Slowly falling into the wake
Of your mistakes
Your life crumbles to ruins, Hidden in the masquerade
You're two faced

Fly so high, Exalt yourself
Till wings ignite, too close to the sun
Fallen from the angel, Into the devil
You've become

Engulfed in self-pity, From every path you've chosen
Deep down we both knew, You could be better than this

Let go of the past you've held so close
I've felt you're pain stricken heart
I know your shame
Allow it to feed the flame

Watch as you fade away, Slowly falling into the wake
Of your mistakes
Your life crumbles to ruins, Hidden in the masquerade
You're two faced (X2)

A battle cry screamed before, Been beaten and scorned
Welcome to the front lines, This means war

Gluttony and greed
A world where we feast
We're all just serpents
Feeding off the fruit of the tree (X2)
Track Name: Pyro
Like lightning crashing through the ground
So quick to judge and your words ring
Like lightning crashing through the ground
So quick to judge and your words ring

Like thunder pounding in my ears
Your words collapse, you have no control
Like thunder pounding through my ears
Your words collapse, you have no control

And with this hate
Pointed at our heads
Like a loaded gun
Left with no options

Exhale the anger and breakthrough
I wont deny my past
Bring forth the future
Nothing to lose, nothing to prove

Exhale the anger
Bring forth the truth
Exhale the anger
Bring forth this truth

We'll stand, we'll breathe
Ill hold on to what's left of me
We'll stand, we'll breathe
Ill hold on to what's left of me

And with is hate
Pointed at our heads
Like a loaded gun
Left with no options

No options left for us now
Track Name: 100-Proof
You know I write, in hopes these words will make it stop
Make everything feel alright
Every minute is a new verse, a new countdown
To find my end game is a hearse
I cant stop it poetry and noting, jotting down rhythm and rhyme
Knowing I march to a beat of a drum, one that is beating out of time
Doing my own thing, with a future based on uncertainty

But I'm scared of dying effortless
Terrified of a death that's meaningless
This is all that makes sense
My mind's a wreck, the foundation is crumbling

Ill stay starving
I'll gladly bleed
Expecting the world in our palms
I'd rather die fighting for what I believe

Ice flows through my veins
Trying to fathom emotions that I struggle to contain
Am I so insane?
The truth made it hurt
Forced myself to believe To what another's lies conceived
Let the ice freeze the pain inside of me
Allow it to alleviate and exterminate
This hurt, this pain
The malice, the shame

The sores and blisters
Hands worn thin
These sores and blisters
Arouse calloused

I''ll stay starving
I'll gladly bleed
Expecting the world in our palms
I'd rather die fighting for what I believe

And everything will fall into place
The American dream says work hard

Pursuit of happiness
Left with no promises
Pursuit of happiness
Left with no promises
Track Name: Dear Brethren
If only you were around for one last drink
It worked for you, why won't it work for me
But I can't pass, I can't let
The world forget, you will live through me
To strip a world from what you taught
How selfish can I be, how selfish could I seem
Halo over my disguise
Left with the anguish of your demise

For all those lessons I learned
From loved ones whose time was too short
You live on for reason
Breathe of life to live on for you

My dear brethren that lie in the sky
Six feet under I still hear your voices (They're haunting)
My dear brethren that lie in the sky
Six feet under I still hear your voices (I'm calling for answers)

You were always supposed to be there
My brother, dear brother
When I try to talk I feel a lump in my throat
My brother, dear brother
Everyday I awake to a tear inside, hiding my emotions
Everyone says time heals all wounds, but it can't heal this
Its just given me more time to cope

My dear brethren that lie in the sky
Six feet under I still hear your voices (They're haunting)
My dear brethren that lie in the sky
Six feet under I still hear your voices (I'm calling for answers)

The only ones who believed in me, and all I could ever become
Who had faith in the nothing, I feel I'm becoming
I could be bleeding, but my pulse keeps beating
For a heart that believes in you, as you believed in me
Playing a game of roulette, spinning the barrel
Hoping I won't fail, thanks to you I refuse
I'm driven by a dead man's fuse, because I'm looking into a world
That has next to nothing left, that it can take from me

One day I'll see you soon

As I look into the night sky
Begging for your advice
The answer comes loud and clear
I feel a presence I know you're near

I know you're right here
I feel you're presence near

I know you're right here
I feel you're existence as you fade
Track Name: Bloodlines
I never thought I'd find a place where I belong
A place to call home, I always felt trapped
Inside of walls, for so long I felt worthless
Till I found my purpose
I always felt I couldn't feel like fit in
To find safety, a sense of serenity
My mind ran around the clock
But when the music come on, time just up and stops

This families all I've got,
The blood I've been given is not
This is all that I have
Just try and take it away

Sometimes life drags you down, till you cant hear the sound
Of your salvation
Sometimes life drags you down, chews you up and spits you out
Chews you up and spits you out

Sometimes I've felt the demon in me
Lost in my mind, I feel it slowly slipping
Away I catch myself, trying to hide
What's left inside

You called me the animal, who's the one stuck living in a cage
Just ask yourself who's really the shame
When you look into a mirror of your own graves

Look inside of us, there's a fire you cant control
Wild and full of a fury, you cannot
Chain us any longer, put a stake through my heart
Holy water couldn't tame me
With a pride of a lion, this heart on our sleeve
The lies we've been fed for so long
We fight the hand that feeds
And make it on our own, no longer we stand alone

Sometimes life drags you down, till you cant hear the sound
Of your salvation
Sometimes life drags you down, chews you up and spits you out
Chews you up and spits you out

This is my bloodline
Track Name: Karma
My jaded eyes became clear
As sober lies fed into fear
But I as the fool, let them seep into
A castles walls
The fortress that protected me
For so long, struck me down

Its almost been a year
But a lifetime since I felt anything like this
Its obvious to me now
That ignorance was bliss

Deny me, despise me
Desolation, annihilation
Deny me, despise me
Desolation of what was left

Like the tides undertow
Slowly dragged me in
For the waves to crash unto me
Right through me

I see you standing alone within the crowd

I feel the commotion as the world surrounds
Me and you when everything used to stop
Now only the pain subsides when I look into your eyes
I see nothing but the cold hard truth
And there's nothing banding me to you

Like the tides undertow
Slowly dragged me in
For the waves to crash unto me
Right through me

Karma, Welcome to the dark
Karma, That you never knew
Karma, Welcome to the dark
Karma, What lies in my heart
Karma, Welcome to the dark
Karma, Judge me for what you think I am
Karma, Welcome to the dark
Karma, You'll never see what I'll become
Track Name: Relics
Tomorrow is waiting, to become yesterday
Its hard for me to move, I cannot speak
Nothing left to say, feeling the weight of a world
On my shoulders
Nothing left to say, weighing down on me

We wont allow our past, to control our outcome
The future is in our hands, we design our own plans
We are the architects, to pull ourselves from this mess
We can be the architects, to build something more than this

I'm leaving these bridges behind me
Unsure moving forward blindly
Finally I can see
This isn't who I wanted to be

Enjoy your city of plunder, no longer will I will be dragged under
The shackles that chained me, I will leave behind
Just keep holding on, patience is a virtue
That I have lost
That time has come, that time is now

We are the broken, we are the damned
Using your judgement, to pave our own road

I will follow spirits blindly, through the ashes may they guide me
The grass may not be greener at the other side(x2)
But if nothing else it time I tried

This is my goodbye, at least its time I tried
This is my goodbye, if nothing else it's time I tried
This is my goodbye, at least its time I tried

I'm leaving these bridges behind me
Unsure moving forward blindly
Finally I can see
This isn't who I wanted to be
