Track Name: Mirrors
This is my cry for help, my plea for humanity. When the world comes crashing down no one will hear me now. Mirrors reflect the image, the truth we cannot hide. This world is so deceiving, with fake smiles we're crying inside.
Track Name: Self Destruct
I've dug myself in a hole I can't get out of. I've let my anger consume my ways. Full of rage my hate has sucked me dry. I've let these demons control my mind. With clenched fists and a bitter heart, I've looked past this growing beast that's inside of me. Is this the image You made me in, or is this the image that I've made for myself? My mind is like a loaded gun, I'm seconds from pulling the trigger and losing everything that I love. I'm slowly fading into the abyss. I've let myself get sucked in. Caught in the undertow and washed away, I'm slowly fading into the abyss. I'm caught between wrong and right, not knowing which is which. Why is this life so hard to leave behind? My eyes have been open to the man that I've become, to all the wrong I have done and to the truth I've so long tried to outrun. My finger's on the trigger, I'm losing everything that ever meant a thing to me, that ever meant anything. Is this the image You made me in, or is this the image that I've made for myself?
Track Name: Time Is A Thief
A few short years you were in my life, time passed in the blink of an eye. Time that meant everything to me, time that will remain a memory. Things are different now, now that you're gone. And I never pictured my life without you standing next to me. But time's a thief as we all grow older. We were so young, just so naive, not knowing how hard life could be. God give me strength to carry on, cause this pain I feel inside is making it hard to breathe. Not a second passes without you crossing my mind, and as the seasons change my anger continues to remain. Am i selfish for feeling like this? Wishing you weren't ever taken from me. Life can be so cruel when it takes everything. The dark side of truth is always cold to see, I never knew that this is how it would be. Cold as ice are the memories, they never cease to give chills to me. Time is a thief as we all grow older. Through this pain and through this strife, I will strive hoping at the end of the tunnel I will see the light. Through this pain and through this strife, I will strive hoping to see the light. God give me strength to carry on, cause this pain I feel inside is making it hard to breathe.
Track Name: Half Blood
Forgotten, left behind abandoned forgotten about, I meant nothing to you.
You left me to fend on my own, to grow as the man of this home, without your presence I learned every lesson all alone.
Blinded by the absence of a father who was never there, searching for an approval I know that I'll never find.
I never knew you, I didn't even know your name, the only thing you taught me was how to be the man I never wanted to be.
You taught how to become the man I don't want be.
For so long I longed for your love, wanted your hands to guide me along, but you were never a father, you were just another stranger.
I won't let your absence burn hole in my heart, a child always looks up to his father, but I'll just keep on looking up ahead.
For years I thought I had missed out, but you missed out on the man that I've become. You missed out on the man that I've become.
Track Name: Truth Seeker
I'll seek the truth til' the day that I die. I've got this fire and it's burning alive in me. You can't extinguish this flame that burns so bright.
Track Name: Beaten Path
I've been torn in two, ripped from the inside out. Hanging on by a thread with this noose around my neck. I can't break free from these chains that are binding me. As I walk down this path I hear the sweet song of the serpent's song. I'm at the end of my rope with my feet hanging off the edge. She whispers in my ear the same song that the devil sings me to sleep. It's getting hard to carry on with this anchor dragging me down. Iv'e grown weak and weary as the storm rages on, I feel my life slipping away from me. I feel my life slipping away. Everyday is a constant struggle, a raging battle against myself. This addiction grows stronger and stronger taking damage on my health. I can't continue on this way standing inches from my grave. I've seen the damage I've done and I can't walk away. I can't walk away from this pain. Her sweet voice draws me back. This hunger is eating me alive. This has become suicide. I've been in denial living life with an apathetic smile. I'll never make it home with the path that I walk, for so long I've lived in my own ways. As I look at myself, I now realize this is not who I'm supposed to be. No addiction is worth the cost of my life.
Track Name: Condemned
Chivalry is dead, this generation killed it. Innocence is lost, this generation abandoned it. I've seen the mountains crumble, I've seen the end of the world. I've walked the ways of this world only to hate myself. We worship the ground that fools walk upon. I know what's left for humanity and we can't save ourselves.
Track Name: Counterfeit
Searching for something true, something real something tangible
Yet we fill this void in our lives with material objects.
Happiness isn't sold and all that glitters isn't always gold.
We think that what we possess will bring us happiness, but in the end it's valueless.
Forced to believe that the more we obtain will truly suffice, thinking the more we gain is the key to a happy life,
But it's not true.
Wealth will bring you peace,
But it's not true.
We need the next big thing,
But it's not true.
Success is wallet deep,
But it's not true.
I will continue to scream,
But it's not true.
It's just a counterfeit truth, just a lie that's been glamorized.
This American dream has become our nightmare.
I won't stand back and watch our past mistakes create a future wasteland. Searching for something true, something real something tangible.
Yet we fill this void in our lives with material objects.
Track Name: Pharisee
Outside these walls is a war that we've created. We're becoming everything that we swore we hated. When did our hearts become so arrogant, when did our minds become so ignorant? Claiming to be something different but we're just like the rest, casting out the ones who are just trying to find themselves. We say we speak the truth but it's just another lie. We've built up our egos with some sort of religious pride. I hate everything that you are because it's everything that I am. Who are we to judge, who are we to judge, in a world so black and white we've grown grey and dim? Who are we to judge? Spreading lies to justify what were doing is right. We're fighting fire with fire, in the end we'll all get burned. We say we speak the truth but it's just another lie. We've built our egos up with some sort of religious pride. I hate everything that we are. Who are we to judge, who are we to judge, in a world so black and white we've grown grey and dim? Who are we to judge?
Track Name: Lost At Sea
My luck has run out, my patience grown paper thin. This world has taken it's toll, left me out in the cold. My memory slowly fading away. I'm losing sight of who I am. I feel like I'm lost at sea, I feel like i'm lost at sea. I'm trying not to sink, but it's so hard to swim in an ocean of my sin. You say don't look down I'll be alright, but it's so hard when the when the water is rising so high. I'm drowning, I'm sinking, coming closer to the end. I'm done, done trying. I can't do this anymore. I'm slowly realizing now that I can't live this life on my own. The struggle's too great, I can't handle it. God come take control. The cold hands of this lifeless earth squeeze tighter around my throat, I can't breathe. God pull me out of this. Pull me out of this hell, pull me out of myself. My luck has run out, my patience grown paper thin. This world has taken it's toll, left me out in the cold. Pull me out of this hell, pull me out of myself.
Track Name: Through The Looking Glass
Wandering, searching through the darkness, with no light to guide us home. A generation forever lost, swimming through this cesspool we call our lives. We've grown so numb to the filth of this world, let this garbage invade our minds through our idiot boxes. A generation forever lost, swimming through this cesspool we call our lives. I will rise up against these ideas set from our forefathers. Sworn to improve my life has only made it worse. Life, love and liberty were just a lie. I won't stand for this injustice, this spreading disease. This world speaks with cancer that's killing us slowly. We're dying off from not turning away, we can't see these lies that we're told everyday. I see through these lies. I know the truth and I won't keep silent. You can't box me in, you can't shut me up. I won't keep silent. This is not the end, not where I call it quits, I will rise up an army. We will stand for truth. We will stand for truth. We will stand for truth, stand for truth.
