Track Name: The Durrty Durrty Tales of The Heartless are Here To Stay
I cant comprehend all my past mistakes
But I swear to god I'll set this straight
No matter the outcome my hearts engraved with the memories

I know that times against me but I won't fear what lies ahead
Through the thick and the thin
Through the pain and the sins
I swear I have it within me to be all I can
I can't subdue my intentions
When it's all said and done our hearts they beat as one

Our hearts beat as one
With a steady pulse we can overcome these feelings inside we share
Till the day we die
Until the day we fucking die
Track Name: Spirit Bomb
Take a stand and see this through another night
The light from the fire shares the same fate as I
Burning out but full of warmth and memories
I'm lost in time

I had the world in my hands
As I watched it stop spinning
I brought a smile to your face
As I watched you fade away

These hands could have saved the world but instead they've given wounds to angels that will never heal
These words could have spoken peace but instead they keep these damn fires burning

Why should I wait for my own time
When I want you by my side
And I know if I stay here then the clocks will only slow
To the beat of your rested heart
I'm growing tired, this time apart
Its picking away at me

I stand alone
But I pray to god there's something more to the story
I'm counting down the days
If I took this leap of faith only to find out there is no one here with me

I'm counting down the days

If there is ever a day where your world falls apart
I'll take your burdens for my own

I stand alone
But I pray to god there's something more to the story
I'm counting down the days
If I took this leap of faith only to find out there is no one here with me


Heaven help me(screams and crying)

I can't carry on knowing that you lay there without a breathe in your lungs
But you will always be my everything
Track Name: SucklePuff
This book has been read before
Blank pages scattered on the floor
Once full and worthy, of a loving journey
But now so frail and cold it’s lifeless
Somebody claim these seems
I tried to steer you back but I guess your time has come

Take a minute and look around you
This life has been set in stone
Embrace what’s left in these pictures that show us how much we’ve grown
I’m slipping off this beaten path but I won’t let go
When the light shines down from heaven I’ll scream no

Take what you can but I’m going nowhere
My choice is my own and I’m going nowhere

These lines in the road separate me from where I want to go
Old routes (roots) with withered branches
Splintered lungs from second chances

Contradicting an already laid out path, I can make it on my own
Desperation called upon you to doubt the very giver of life

I don’t need to leave my mistakes in the open
But if it reminds me of where I need to go then so be it
I’ll make it on my own

Now I know as my passion for survival continues to grow
I’m making this harder on you
Despite this pain I keep my head held high
I made a mistake but now my eyes are clear as day
Track Name: MONSTRO
We didn't choose to be born
But I'll choose how I die
I'd like to properly introduce myself
I am your downfall

I represent so many before me
And so many to come
All this pain and suffering must end
Let's come together and make our amends
I never said I was perfect
And who is to say they are
In a world surrounded by the consequence of man
Somebody help me understand

I'll face my past with open arms
And scars on my back
I don't know the meaning of failure
Track Name: Who Rules? Hyrule!
Mark my words

All I want is what I had back then
My mind is made up and I'm not giving in

Enclosed in the comfort of this home
I feel the presence of hope
It’s all I have that keeps me pushing towards my goals
Without this fail-safe where else could I feel at home?
It’s all we have that keeps us pushing towards our goals
Without this fail-safe where else could we feel at home?

The shades are drawn but the light can’t seem to work its way in
I’ve been searching through my heart trying to find you within
But you’ve been there from the start
Nothing with tear us apart
No matter where I go you’ll never be too far

I’ll never take this for granted
Help me get a hold of myself
Teach me from the lessons along the way

I’ve been flowing in and out of time
Frantically searching in a shattered mind
I’ve been waiting for a rainy day
Where the sun shines down and I can feel its rays

The shades are drawn but the light can’t seem to work its way in
I’ve been searching through my heart trying to find you within
But you’ve been there from the start
Nothing with tear us apart
No matter where I go you’ll never be too far

Since day one we’ve been living to prove only to ourselves
That we’re here for a reason
We won’t back down
Since day one I’ve been living to prove only to myself
That I’m here for a reason
I won't back down

With the presence of doubt lurking every corner
I can't help but be mindfull
No, I won't back down
Track Name: Mudblood
Yeah
Now I'm treading water and I can't turn back
I’m reaching for a new destination
I'll leave that phase behind me and won't turn back

I can feel the world changing around me
I can feel the wind shaking me to my bones
I remember when we stood for something
But now that something has been washed away

We're all hoping for that new and better
But nobody wants to dive right in
You need to have the will to swim and find your way
I'll find my fucking way

For all the times I counted on you but ran out of numbers
Don’t look back x2
I’m looking for closure in open wounds, familiar faces in empty rooms
Don’t look back x2

I’m not saying I’m the worst this world has ever seen
I don't claim to be
I’m just saying when my arm is down humanity's throat
My heart is on my sleeve

Powering through the current’s flow
Is anyone out there like me?
I don’t know
I don't know where to go from here

For all the times I counted on you but ran out of numbers
Don’t look back x2
I’m looking for closure in open wounds, familiar faces in empty rooms
Don’t look back x2

God damn, never again
You’re stuck in open water
God damn, never again

Your words, your moves
Persuasion will never alter my mind again
Never again
Track Name: Chestah Coppah Paht
Why me?
What did I do to deserve such grief
Why me?
Right on the tip of my tongue all the words I want to scream

This pain in my chest
This lump in my throat
I'll withstand this till I can find a reason to doubt what I hold within me
You've been at this from the start
I just wanna go, where do I turn from here?
When all I wanted was a place to call my own

Look into my eyes
Have heart enough my dear to tell me straight

I was never the type to just let things go
When the walls fall down around me I need to learn to let it go

God won't be with you on the day you fall to your knees and scream out my name
While your counting sheep at night I'm finding ways to take back what's mine
Eager to reach the end of the map I've been running in circles

As I stand before you with so much to say
I bite my tongue, suck up my pride and walk away x2

But when the days done and I've been drowning in my weary thoughts
What could i have possibly said to make you think that what we had was lost?
Time after time after time I'm getting overwhelmed
Picking away at every question that has yet to be answered
Give me closure

I have become a ghost
I'm running out the clocks
Letting them bleed dry
Why can't I just open my eyes
Somebody set me free
I need to breathe
Like a message in a bottle I'm drifting out to sea
Somebody rescue me
Track Name: New England Palm Trees
This fire burning is the only thing to calm my nerves
Just the sound of your voice will make me choke upon my words

Our time is up
Our worlds been falling at the speed of life
But I'll take you away
To the top of the world so we can watch it burn

I only hope these last remaining hours
Will be all that I need to show you what I've known
From the start I've been waiting for a reason to tell you
And that reason is now

I'll go to hell and back
Just to call you my own
No matter where we go
I want the world to know

This fire burning is the only thing to calm my nerves
Just the sound of your voice will make me choke upon my words
But I want to see your face
And every single step that we've made

I'll pull the strings of my heart
To guild me back to you
Ill topple mountains, sway the masses, face perfection I've been lacking
Just to guild me back to you

This is yours and yours alone
The seasons they change
The hours to days

I'll follow through with this I swear
I'll follow through for you
I'll follow through with this
There's no time to spare

(When this world comes crashing down
And all of what once was turns to ash
I'll find you in the chaos
These words in the back of my head
Are all I have left to say
So join me at the top of the world
As we share our last remaining day)

When this world starts burning
And I find you alone
I'll take what little time I have
And make these feelings known
Cause at the very least I told you whats been eating away
In the back of my head
I was waiting for the chance and it's today

This fire burning is the only thing to calm my nerves
Just the sound of your voice will make me choke upon my words
But I want to see your face
And every single step that we've made
Track Name: Kid Can't Crow
I can feel the waves crash into my bed
I'm slowly drifting away where no one can find me
How can I fall asleep with all this screaming
It's always in my head telling me to close my eyes
And making me say goodnight

This is where I stand
This is where I come from
I poured my heart out to the world
Now take it in

We all have a story to tell
But if we stand together we can face the doubt
Who knows what tomorrow brings
But for now I say goodbye
This is my destiny
