Track Name: XIII
I'm so sick of disappointing everyone
Track Name: Floating Away
I feel so comfortable with a noose around my neck
You're never there, you're never there, and it makes me sick
Now I've held on, for way too long
For a shed of hope, please help me find my home.

How will I know
The place that I long to be will truly set me free?
And is that what I really want, have I been home all along?
And I guess you can say that I got so used to just floating away
You're floating away.

Forget everything that they ever said
Some think, some think they're better off, better off dead
But listen close, don't bottle it up
Cause I've put my all in being enough

How will I know
The place that I long to be will truly set me free?
And is that what I really want, have I been home all along?
And I guess you can say that I got so used to just floating away
You're floating away.

We'll float away
Will you help me float away?

How will I know
The place that I long to be will truly set me free?
And is that what I really want, have I been home all along?
And I guess you could say that I got so used to just floating away
Track Name: Conquer
I burn every bridge I make
With every step I take
So I would never see your face.

Do you cut to feel something?
Do you feel pain when no ones there?
When you're lying at night
When the battle with the knife is the final fight
Do you look for something more,
When you conquer the weight of the world?

I burn every bridge I make
With every step I take
So I would never see your face

To replace that feeling, doesn't always mean you'll move on
I need a sense of direction, to say I was right all along

I burn every bridge I make
With every step I take
So I would never see your face
It was never easy to hold onto
Everything has lost it's taste.

I lost my heart
I lost my life
I lost at everything I ever tried.

Will you remember me when I am gone?
Will you remember I was there all along?
Track Name: Lost (feat. Nathan Zorn)
The pressure of this bottle is so heavy
And I can't find a place where I don't feel empty
Can you drink until this ends?

Can you put a time frame on broken clocks?
You can't shut it out when it's all you've got
Where do you draw the line between fire and desire?
Cause I'm tired of telling myself
"This will never be the same"
This time things must change.

Why can't I understand,
What goes on inside your head?
When you say we are all waste in the end

The weight of the world means nothing,
when you learn to stand for something.

Can you put a time frame on broken clocks?
You can't shut it out when it's all you've got
Where do you draw the line between fire and desire?
Cause I'm tired of telling myself
"This will never be the same"
This time things must change.

When the world turns on you, keep pushing on
When I lose all motivation, tell me where I went wrong.
Track Name: I Never Said Goodnight
It's just too hard to speak
You can't leave, I will be weak
I've followed my dreams
and swallowed my pride
Faced my fears and the rising tide
They tell me, you would be proud of me
But without you, I will never fall asleep
I can't let go,
I won't let go.
I will never fall asleep,

Will I live forever?
Do I have to stay alone at sea?
Can I join you where you are?
You'll never see what I can be
Will I die alone?
Can you please save me?
Father, I wish i could tell you one thing
You help me believe

They say the good die young
But I'd rather die at the end of a loaded gun
I can't let go,
I can't let you go
We will lose those we love
We will die not thinking of, those we leave behind
I'll keep you alive

Stay with me
Please don't leave
I'm dying here, without you
Now you're gone, guide me through
Stay with me
Please don't leave
me with these messes I have made,
You make me believe

Will I live forever?
Do I have to stay alone at sea?
Can I join you where you are?
You'll never see what I can be
Will I die alone?
Can you please save me?
Father, I wish i could tell you one thing
You help me believe

I wish you could see, the man I've grown to be
and everything I have accomplished
All the troubles I've overcome
A reflection of yourself
I've been walking between heaven and hell, pushing through
I've been walking, on my own two feet
And I want you to know,
This is for you

I never said goodnight
This is my final cry
They say, it'll be alright

I'm sorry dad, I never said goodnight
I'm sorry
I never said goodnight
Don't let go of me.

Will I live forever?
Do I have to stay alone at sea?
Can I join you where you are?
You'll never see what I can be
Will I die alone?
Can you please save me?
Father I wish I could tell you one thing

I miss you.
I love you.
I'm sorry.
Track Name: Ruins
you treat your body like a temple,
made out of shatter dreams and rubble
begging friends for your next fix,
thank god for the hell of it
i know you can't live without this

i've helped you all i fucking can
how can you call yourself a man?
you preach on those lower than you,
you don't realize what you fucking put me through

it's not like you can save us all
just worry about yourself
we can see straight through your lies
you're crying out for help
the way you keep us close, and push us away
you'll see soon enough,
at the end of the day you lost at your own game

i can see all the bullshit in your lies,
so tell me when you lay down and die,
while at your funeral who do you want by your side?
by your fucking side.

it's not like you can save us all
just worry about yourself
we can see straight through your lies
you're crying out for help
the way you keep us close, and push us away
you'll see soon enough,
at the end of the day you lost at your own game

This is a wake up call
if you need help it's here,
pick yourself back up
better days are near

this is my life,
why i fight,
this is my haven.
