Track Name: See The Truth
I can see what you've become
Shadows of lies, broken promises
You've made the wrong choice
...regretting times spent with you

All I have left are my thoughts
You walked out as fast as you came
Leaving emptiness that cant be filled
Bringing me to bitterness and envy

Alone I've become
Alone I will stay
Track Name: Strip the Chains
You tell me to look towards the stars
Well I don't see shit
I'm just as lost as you, but i'm not living living a lie
I've tried to understand, but I just never could

You're a man of your faith
But you live blind day to day
You're false hope...no longer safe
All I see are empty skies

Living blind in your fictional lives
20 centuries and its all the same
I see no love, no hope for humanity
Crippling our progression

You speak but don't know why
Pressing forward without sight
The old way isn't always the right way
Strip the chains...they've become your own cross

I wont live blind like you
Track Name: Wasted Time
I've said my goodbyes
I've tried to make peace
You're nothing more than a memory
And sometimes...that's too much for me
We've all wasted our time on something we just regretted in the end
And that's just what's happened here

I am perfectly fine with closing my eyes
...with cutting all ties
The truth came out in the end
It was really nothing than my own wasted time

Days are better when I pretend you don't exist
I finally feel the tie break from my wrist

Days are better when I pretend that you don't exist
I don't want to take a razor to my fucking wrist
Track Name: Force It Down
Forcing it down never letting go...built up inside
No emotions, can't let anyone see the truth
Blank face, racing thoughts, emotionally drained
Losing hope of what became of myself

Not proud of what I've become
Breaking point was passed a long time ago

Tried to change, can't break what I've become
Holding grudges, can't let go of the past
Keep myself away from everything
Closed minded with a closed heart
I'll shut out the world

Stuck in this private hell I made for myself
No one can release me but myself

Force it down
Track Name: Shadow Self
Feathered body
I travel with the birds
On a moonless night

Search for my human host
Let me possess you
I need a body
Let me possess you

You’ll look in the mirror
You won’t recognize who you see
Our hair: long and gray
Our skin: worn thin

And in the rain we chanted…
I will kill again
Track Name: In the End
Dead end, dead dreams
Lost time, lost friends
Broken heart, broken trust
Missed opportunities, missed love

Chance taken, chance lost
Failed everyone, failed myself,
Nothing here, nothing left
No future, no hope

Accepting truth, accepting blame
Past goals, past failures
Empty thoughts, empty soul
Free of pain, free of hurt

Its better off in the end
