Track Name: Shut Me Off
Here dreams come to die.
You are one with the emptiness that's stuck in their eyes.
You couldn't see from so high,
How we were running in circles while time kept passing by.

It all looked so bright.
Strike a match in the darkness just to see the light.
But what will happen when the matches end?
Maybe I'm far to gone to understand,
Let's just play pretend

Let's feed the sickness and keep our heads down.

Don't waste your time on me,
I'm staring death in the eye and I can't feel a thing.
So don't waste your time on me,
Tired of living a lie but I keep wasting away.

I can't justify anything I've done but I'm not trying to hide.
I've been caught dead to rights,
Light the last of my matches as I try to ignite.

Burn, burn this sickness I will never look down,
Let me stand in my own way as I let my problems drown.

Don't waste your time on me,
I'm staring death in the eye and I can't feel a thing.
So Don't waste your time on me,
Tired of living a lie but I keep wasting away.

From all the drops in the water to the smoke in my conscience,
I've been dosing on happiness to shut myself off
I need to shut myself off.

I'm not here but I don't think I'll ever wanna be.
Did we lose our minds or did we just lose grip on reality?

Don't waste your time on me,
I'm staring death in the eye and I can't feel a thing.
So don't waste your time on me,
Tired of living a lie so I'm starting to break away.
Track Name: Begging For More
Begging For More:

The sign on the wall,
It's me against them all,
And all my hopes you tread on once again.
This is when the tears start dripping,
And the more we're sinking in we face no one else but ourselves.

Can't you see were blind and were weak,
Everyone choose to speak their minds,
Carving our way through with violence.
On the way down singing (whoa)
On the way down singing (whoa)

We're still raged inside,
As words left unspoken.
Trapped in our minds,
As we start giving in.
Doubt sunk itself in me.
I keep my eyes shut just to see
Its getting closer, its getting closer...

(Can't you see were) blind and were weak,
Everyone chose to speak their minds,
Carving our way through with violence.
On the way down singing (whoa)
On the way down singing (whoa)

Its on the wall,
And I've said it before.
We know its gone too far for the rest to ignore.
Ive seen it all, and I can't breathe anymore.
I'll be the first one in line to keep begging for more.

Blind and were weak,
Everyone chose to speak their minds,
Carving our way through with violence.
On the way down singing (whoa)
On the way down singing (whoa)
Track Name: Guilty
Guilty:

We used to believe that everything happens for a reason,
But we also believe the news.
Each and every day leads us farther astray
From the promise we had to be normal.

Sometimes I look down on your creation,
A god forsaken nation.
Tell me how did we get to this?

Everyone's guilty
When nobody takes the blame.
Nobody steps to reclaim notorious fame.
While heroes die in hope for better days,
They sit on the side and waste our hopes away.

Last chance to define who we are,
A simple accusation that got shaped on our scars.
We get hit and we fall,
We get sick of it all,
But we're still breathing the same air.

My god am I going insane?
I just opened my eyes and I'm already to blame
For the crimes of the ones that sent their kids with a gun
To throw their life away.

We dare to dream of our freedom,
In the end we're just the victims.
The cycle of menace is spinning
Until nobody's left to hear you.

Everyone's guilty
When nobody takes the blame.
Nobody steps to reclaim notorious fame.
While heroes die in hope for better days,
They sit on the side and waste our hopes away.

How many more can we take
When everything around us breaks?

I'm still building a stand,
And yet rebuilding again,
It's been years that I sat on the fence, I sat waiting
For a justified act to repair all the hate,
I sat there hating for the fate we create contemplating
If a day comes to pass when we find resolution,
It would take more than words to ignite this illusion.
I just want to feel safe somewhere deep in my head,
Still I figured, safety only comes to those who are dead.

Everyone's guilty
For all the acts we take.
Nobody wants to make the same mistake.
While heroes die in hope for better days,
They sit on the side and waste our hopes away.
Track Name: Mrs. Grim
Mrs. Grim:

I walked out with my hands and knees
Covered in, covered in blood.
The cops that surrounded me said "keep your hands above your head punk!"
And I can't remember what really did occur
Last night but right now she was out of mind and out of sight.

"Close your eyes, relax, and let me show you the world"
These words ring in my head while you sell me for gold.

You left me here to play the victim dear.
The blank space in my head
Leads to where you disappeared.
But as you all know by now things aren't always what they seem.
So I'll pick up the pieces to find Mrs. Grim.

You didn't plan this out, they released me due to lack of evidence.
With a monitor on my wrist on this house arrest from the circumstance.
And I retraced my steps to where I saw you last,
So I took my chances, ran away, hoping not too many days have passed.

To the cabin where you sold me out for gold.

You left me here to play the victim dear.
The blank space in my head
Leads to where you disappeared.
But as you all know by now things aren't always what they seem.
So I'll pick up the pieces to find Mrs. Grim.

How could she do such a thing without batting an eye?
I breach the door while hearing all the sirens closing nearby.

I close the door and head for the stairs,
My heart's beating fast, I know that she's there.
I enter the room and out of the blur,
Her body is lifeless, she's not moving a hair!

How could my mind play such tricks on me?
My hands are shaking as I fall to my knees,
She's not breathing!

The memories return as I'm touching her skin.
The cops rush inside to take me in.
You promised forever, so we'll be together when the morning comes.
If you wait for me, I will set you free.
We'll be together when the morning comes.

I should have seen this coming..
Track Name: Never Look Down
Never Look Down:

I stood there speechless in mourning,
The pieces laid right before me,
The mass gathered here to grieve on all our loss.
The past beats inside them like a second heart,
And they can't bare to see it falls apart.
We all bow our heads in apathy, no one dares to look up now.

They said you're standing in your own way,
You better know your place,
You were born in the wreckage and you can't win the race.
But I've faced all my lows,
I said my goodbyes and never looked down below.

In my dreams I'm sane,
As I reach for the throne.
The light wavers off into the unknown
As I lose my ways to the hardest mistakes
I can't shake off the need to find a home.

And then I set sail again
To show them there is always another way.
We are the products of our past they say,
But were all prisoners in chains if we choose to stay.

They said you're standing in your own way,
You better know your place,
You were born in the wreckage and you can't win the race.
But I've faced all my lows,
I said my goodbyes and never looked down below.

In my dreams I'm sane
As I reach for the throne,
The light wavers off into the unknown.
As I lose my ways to the hardest mistakes
I can't shake off the need to find my home.

"You're better off dead", "it's all in you're head"
These words shiver my soul.
You're hanging by threads on this life you have led.
Now it's time for me to take control.

You're the only one that can decide how long you'll have to walk in hell.

They said you're standing in your own way,
You better know your place,
You were born in the wreckage and you can't win the race.
But I've faced all my lows,
I said my goodbyes and never looked down..

I said my goodbyes and never looked down below
(I said my goodbyes and never looked down below)
