Track Name: Again and Again...
It never fucking ends
The wreckage surrounds him
His loved ones turned away
His duties neglected
This cycle eats at him
It ends just to begin
Five days spent fighting through
A war he cannot win

He said this would never be him
How did this go so fucking wrong?

They said they’d claim each day as their own
Times they’ll remember
Gonna stay young ‘til they die
Only young once, so they’ll do it right
Now he’s looking back, but hell no, he’s not laughing

But no time for regrets
For this too shall pass
But an eye of the storm
This respite will not last
It’ll start over again
A battle from within
Sunday comes to an end
And Monday must begin

What have I done?

Blown off course by the stinging winds
What will it take to get back on track?
Can’t believe it’s come to this

What have I done?
Track Name: Wounded Healer
Spent my life
Seeking reasons
For the pain
Give it meaning
Stained with scars
Imperfections
Self-hatred
Self-dejection

Though we’re injured
Our fate’s not sealed
Hidden strength lies
In each of us
Need not be cured
To find healing
Wounded healer
In each of us

He’s walled off
The world outside
Eyes set hard
But he can’t hide
Damage done
Betrayed and reeling
I reach out
In hopes of healing

Though we’re injured
Our fate’s not sealed
Aroused strength lives
In each of us
Need not be cured
To heal others
Wounded healer
In each of us

So fucking sick
Of feeling empty
Of feeling like this is my destiny
Reopened scars
Back to haunt me
Back to beat me down once more and taunt me
I’m taking it back
My dignity
This cycle won’t live beyond me
I claim it all
My ability
The wounded healer I have fought to be
Track Name: Can't Keep Up
Scrambling through the night
The world spins fast beneath my feet
Invisible demons nip
At my heels, forcing my hand
Vigilant I must be
For above fallen angels swoop
Scavengers waiting for
The chance to tear at my flesh

I can’t keep this up

Chest heaving, labored breath
Pounding heart, screaming for release
Legs burning, cramping up
Exhaustion, screaming at me
The trap sprung, closing in
I’m caught again…

I can’t keep this up

Eyes dart from side to side
Seeking a place of refuge
Somewhere to catch my breath
To still my pounding heart
All I ask is for somewhere
To close my eyes
To give myself to sleep at last

I’m falling…
Track Name: To the Gallows
Ghost of yesteryear
Sneering through a saw tooth grin
Lurking through the streets
Littered with the charred remains
Of naiveté
Sizzling and smoldering
Sending caustic smoke
To its death cloaked in contempt

Faces turned away
Ashamed by the reminder
Of all that once was
And all they once thought could be

But all is a ruse
This ghost, but a prisoner
Of its own device
Unknowingly led to die
Subtly prodded
Along a dead end pathway
To a bitter end
At the hands of the hangman

Onward to the gallows
Sentenced to a bitter end
At the hands of the hangman
Track Name: Reason to Live
Cast out
Thrown to the wolves
Wouldn’t be what we were told to be
Cursed and spat upon
For rejecting their power and greed
We walked alone
Trudging through remains, death, despair
Found a reason to live
Refuge from the storm raging beyond

This is my release
This has kept me sane
We must keep this strong
For the youth of another day

Explosion of sound
Resurrects our souls, new life begins
Restraints shredded
Unleashing the beasts that dwell within
Final note lingers
Fighting against its own mortality
Silence overtakes
But the spirit remains for eternity

This is my release
This has kept me sane
We must keep this strong
For the youth of another day
Track Name: Manifest
Steely clouds do a dead man’s float
Across a bruised and blackened sky
Masking the face of a snarling moon
The stars’ faint glow denied
Choppy waves slap against the hull
Upon this sea of broken hope
The bridge abandoned, the ship afloat
The crew slumbers below

I cannot sleep

Winds filled with the cries of loss
Those put to sleep in the ocean deep
Their dreams shattered,
Flames snuffed out
In a burial at sea
Those cries haunt me
In this dead of night
Harbingers of all that could be
Though my eyes grow heavy,
Rage flames bright
Burning eternally

I cannot sleep

Am I the only one without slumber?
The only one disgusted
By this selfish display?
The only one willing
To set this ship ablaze
To bring some light to this night?
Light up this night

How do they sleep?

Am I the only one without slumber?
The only one disgusted
By this selfish display?
The only one willing
To set this ship ablaze
To bring some light to this night?
Light up this night
