Track Name: Appendix
We can settle all ties
Increase disruption necessary
For friends all need sacrifice
or spare my life from endless violence
Crucify or get off the cross
Save yourself and walk away
'cause I have a way with me
Get away from me
Get away from me
Big man I beg you please...
Welcome to the war that is my head
It serves you right
It was brought upon me
I base and build my walls out of fact
so I have a house to sit down
I believe what I believe in
Love was walked away from
Come on end this fools game
of endless empty promises
Voice your innocence as the cure
Pass the blame and spill empty
Promises
I have faith and virtue
I don't want to hurt you
but I can get inside of you and kill you.
Track Name: So Full of Lies
I can't believe all the damage is done
The first one was fun but now I'm growing older
I've been locked in the sound of your beating heart
getting a sense that this is falling apart
Down on my knees holding my head
wanting to change all the things you said
all the things you said
I'm so full of lies I need to tell myself
Just to wake up because I buried my health
Open my eyes in pain to see
In pain I've become to escape what is me
I've wasted away trying to hide
a place in my head you couldn't find
Can't believe all the damage is done
The first one was fun but now I'm growing older I've been locked in the
sound of your beating heart
getting a sense that this is falling apart
Down on my knees holding my head
wanting to change all the things you said
all the things you said
This time...
Is the last time you'll break
This time...
Is the last time you'll stay
I can't unless stay
I've learned from your wisdom your last mistake
Every time I've stayed away it breaks you and blinds you
You'll find your place
This Is the last time.
Track Name: Lost In Simplicity
What is this holy crow across the sky?
Bury it down like a landslide
toe to toe
Fight the fight
I am a liar
I want your soul
and bury it down to the depths of the bottom
I need control to feed on lust and the birth of your sorrow
In an abandoned sea
Shed your skin and the veil of your vanity
I bite my tongue
'cause blood in my mouth is like a bomb underground
What am I now?
I found myself lost in simplicity
I washed ashore
The tide has changed and now I'm alone
Cry's in sleep holding close to the beating heart of my enemy
You washed ashore
The tide has changed and now you're alone
Cry's in sleep holding close to the beating heart of my enemy
Track Name: Never Let You Down
Who will save you and never let you down?
Close your eyes let the night stay
Let me hold you near
Poison in your ear
Drowning out the sound
I know that you're loved and I need you around
Like falling fault lines
the truth revealed
Come closer
Crowning another emotion today makes my heart strain
But it's true you are my favorite
It's true
you are my favorite
you...
Our edges near
Like a ghost in the mirror
Fading and buried here in the seas of boredom
(I'm lost without you)
Like rubble crumbling down beneath my weathered fear
(I'm lost without you)
Days fall like fault lines but I've grown calm
I'm terrified of losing
I'm choosing love
Come closer
Swallowing arms holding tight
I won't let go at all tonight
Hold your breath and know I'm holding tight
I won't let go of you tonight
Track Name: Molting Skin
I must redefine my own place to hide
I'm honing my way
My way survive
With what you've left of me
My new sense of ability
You can see with such clarity
My inabilities I'm guilty of...
Always!
Like withering skin and living inside as you took me in
I will lie if you let me sleep
Feeling so hollow
Breathing as long as you'll hurt
To do as I do
I will strike you with venom as long as my rattle shakes
hold this against you as long as this battle takes.
Alive inside you as you are with my mistakes
Molting and stretching, and living as love dictates
I'll embrace you and smother it's my way to mother You .
or make you and feed you is my way to father too.
My skin is shedding, and itching, and beautiful
I 'm peeling and stretching and growing until I am full
Drying and folding if molting is growing.
going to
This animal shakes while You're loving fades
and my hunger pangs are starving me
and you will see
as I use this ability
Factor in this gravity and there's bound to be
the rest of the way
You'll see
Like Withering skin and living inside as you took me in
I will lie if you let me sleep
Your jaws are stretching, feeding and willing teething and
Sinking and bleeding as I feed you.
My renewed sense of responsibility
I'm redefining my own place to hide here.
I'm honing my only way to survive,
with what you have left of me. my own sense of ability
I thrive on debilitating insincerity
You can see with such clarity my own inability of which I am guilty
If only I was once what you took from me
Track Name: Turned Around
I'm gonna turn this one around
and make something out of nothing
I'm gonna ask you a question and I deserve your attention
Because I've tried so hard
put so much aside
to one day turn around and find that you hide
Indiscretion's abound and your fear of regret
is killing you.
But when all is calm
and no reason to be scared
you find yourself alone
because all along you cared
for the ones you chose
and the ones who chose you
are simply at your side asking to be kind.
When winter has escaped by the fleeting falling snow
your fighting to remember what you have on your own.
So listen when I tell you that warmth is all around
and when nothing worth replacing has fallen to the ground.
Take this Rose
(you gave me)
All this love is turning black
There's nothing worse than fading away
I can't forgive and now it's your pain
I reach out my hand
Something to hold
From weeping eyes to weather the storm
(Take this Rose )
There's nothing worse than fading away
I can't forgive and now it's your pain
Keep shedding your light
To show me the way
Keep pressing on suffice it to say.
There's nothing worse than fading away
I can't forgive and now it's your pain.
I'm gonna turn this one around and make something out of nothing
I'm gonna ask you again one question to a friend
I need to know the answer from beginning to the end
With nothing left to say nothing but goodbye
was everything worth losing no matter how we tried
to keep it all together or kill it on the vine
Adding up to nothing or dividing up our time
Love is what I lost here and nothing's what you'll find
Take this Rose
(you gave me)
All this love turning black
There's nothing worse than fading away
I can't forgive and now it's your pain
I reach out my hand
Something to hold
From weeping eyes to weather the storm
(Take this Rose )
There's nothing worse than fading away
I can't forgive and now it's your pain
Keep shedding your light
To show me the way
Keep pressing on suffice it to say.
There's nothing worse than fading away
I can't forgive and now it's your pain.
Track Name: Kingdom Come
I Found Myself
But I don't care
There's no Love and no one is Here
Behind You eyes,
Endure the Pain
No one's safe
You can't escape,
So Don't come inside here
Kingdom Come thy will be done
I am the one
I Gave myself
Take From Me
Taking your vow you part
Kingdom come thy will be done
I am your lion
Patiently I'm haunting your head
And Haunting your Heart
I'm Slipping away again
If I could only reach your hand
Another day in descent
I wish I could make a mends with you
It's filling my head again
If only I could make this end
If I had an ear to bend
I wish I could make amends with you
You've come to carry me home
Darkness fades to lonely
The shards are tender
I might but don't make me
The sound of your whispering is surrounding
flood my senses
I'm drowning in the wake of your precious presence
Your fortresses essence
The weight of your lessons
You breathe and scatter me in
the turmoil of your wind
You win
and I
never can
You've come to carry me home
Track Name: Rootstock
Holy Christ you're a pretty mess
My pretty little lamb be calm and listen to yourself
Never mind what you need to hear
listen to sound of the ringing in your ear
I know that your sick of it
I know what your going to do with it
I know When your lying
I know what your trying to do here
With your little sympathetic mind now
What do you do with the hate
Taking over
Peeling more than skin
breaking open
Taking more than you give
Love stings so enough already
holding nothing
but emotions through the day
Signed Sealed
and delivering hope
I hope you pay.
The strengths I'm not surprised
I'm living with the nerves to see
I know what your thinking
I already know what you'll say
And yes it's true
You always make it about you
