Track Name: Intro/Losses
Did what I had to just to survive
Numbed my brain and reddened my eyes
Abandoned hope, devoid of faith
FIlled my mind with self hate

What I learned was what I knew
I was never good enough for you
What I realised was the truth
I never fucking needed you

What we once had we don't have no more
Left those feelings with the person I was before
You keep your distance
We aren't the same
I gave you love but you chose pain

I gave you love
You chose your pain
We'll never be the same

But no longer do I live that lie
And through the pain I see that I
Have grown stronger through these trials
Learned to forget the way you smiled

So consider this my goodbye
Grateful that for the first time
I can see without being blinded
Look to the future with my past behind me

Well I survived the storm
Collected my things and then moved on
And through it all
You just severed your ties and built your walls
Track Name: A Memory
I'm livin' with a thorn in my side
And we always talk as if it's just fine
I take comfort in what is mine
And try to look past these darker times

We all hurt, all make mistakes
Some just can't stand the time it takes
To heal old wounds that cut so deep
I think it's best that we don't speak

Because my words get wasted on the weak
And I took my time, I watched you leave
Look at you now, how much you've changed
I wouldn't know you if not for your name


But those years aren't dead to me
I just blocked them from my memory
I'll let them back eventually
When I know that you remember me

Those years aren't dead to me
Just blocked from my memory
I'll let them back eventually
When I know you remember me

And how things used to be
I woulda called you family

But you turned your cheek so easily
And how quick you were to forget me

When did you decide you were better than us
And when did you decide enough was enough



And my best was never good enough
Track Name: The Struggle
Choked out by the hands of time
Worn down and numb from the daily grind
Feelings are merely an inconvenience
To the men who decide how free your freedom is

Clock in
Clock out
There is no way out
I made mine
I spent more
Drink until we hit the floor

Locked in to the 9 to 5
Forget what it means to be alive
Save to the system no difference made
Kept in line, always behave

I'm sinking into the deep end
Forgot what it means to be a real friend
Lost touch with everyone i know
In this place that I call my home

Unleash the shackles of society
I just want to be free

I'm all alone inside my head
I'm writing in these songs
Dreaming I was dead
Scared of uncertainty
And business based on misery

Locked in to the 9 to 5
Forget what it means to be alive
Save to the system no difference made
Kept in line, always behave

I'm sinking into the deep end
Forgot what it means to be a real friend
Lost touch with everyone i know
In this place that i call my home

There is only one thing that I know for sure

I need you more than each day needs it sun
I need you more than each night needs its moon
And just like the break of dawn or the fall of night
These moments of love are all over too soon
Track Name: No Faith/No God
I'm so tired of soul searching
Blackened tongues and lies have set this
Mind ablaze with inner grief
With weary eyes, i never sleep
I live in chaos, always searching for peace
And watch these tears fall at my feet

Where is your god when you are
On your knees
Torn into pieces by reality
I just can't believe in your divinity

Searched high and low for a key
Trying to find some clarity
But still struggle with my own mortality

Born to live, love, and then die
There's no more time to be found in the skies

Born from pain
As a part of the lie
Conditioned to hate, hurt, and cry

I see how much you have changed
I let a piece of myself fade away
You brought me only misery
Never forget, still etched in my memory
