Track Name: Keep Your Distance
Everything falls apart eventually,
just a matter of how, why or when.
I guess you saw what was lacking inside of me.

If I could shake this ghost,
maybe I wouldn't feel so alone.
It’s like a broken mirror every day I walk this earth.
All things come to an end.

I know it doesn't hurt to dream,
but I wish I never slept in.
Are you the ghost or is it me,
weighing so heavy on my mind?

Distance grows we fade away,
bury me in your memories.
If only words could move a mountain,
I wish it wasn’t like this.

If I could shake this ghost,
maybe I wouldn’t feel so alone.
It’s like a broken mirror every day I walk this earth.
All things come to an end.

I've heard we only have ourselves,
but even I don't want me.

Laid to rest like so many of my hopes a dreams;
always searching out for love only finding apathy.
All I find is apathy.

Distance grows we fade away,
bury me in your memories.
If only words could move a mountain.
I wish it wasn't like this.
Track Name: Thief
Can you see what can't be see,
do you believe there's good left in me?
I never found silver linings.
(I never found silver linings.)

And could it be that all I need is in front of me,
my grey skies are clearing.
And could it be that all I need is in front of me,
I'll take a swing at life.
Or is it getting worse?
Am I finding a crutch and calling it love?
I never found silver linings.

I ruin everything I touch,
so please turn and run.
(So please turn and run.)

Can you see what can't be seen,
is there any good left in me?
Can you see what can't be seen,
do you believe there's good left in me?

And could it be that all I need is in front of me,
my grey skies are clearing.
And could it be that all I need is in front of me,
I'll take a swing at life...
Track Name: Introspection
Buried my head in my hands,
seeking truths I've yet to see.
Born to a world without meaning,
force fed another's dream.

I'd burn like a candle to find my way,
nothing works this easily.
Maybe life's meant to eat through me,
separate from what I am, and hope to be.

Found myself chasing dead ends,
I've wished away every 11:11.
I'll just hang my head instead.
(Found myself chasing dead ends.)

Now I question myself like everyone else,
what works for some doesn't work for me.
I'm becoming a fucking monster.
Now I question myself like everyone else,
what works for some doesn't work for me.
I'm becoming a fucking monster.

A kiss of Judas from my own lips,
self deprecating 'til I meet my end.
Alluding judgement from my own hands,
I never had a fighting chance.

Now I question myself like everyone else,
what works for some doesn't work for me.
I'm becoming a fucking monster.
Now I question myself like everyone else,
what works for some doesn't work for me.
I'm becoming a fucking monster.
Track Name: Monophobia
I threw 3 years away and became your biggest mistake,
I can't say sorry enough so I'll take it to my grave.
I'm starting to believe it all comes back to me,
I could have better days if I let them be.
I'm starting to believe it all comes back to me,
but in your darkest times I hope you run to me.

But now I'm wearing thin,
finding ways to tear a ghost from skin.
Protect me from myself,
in my minds eye I have no one else.
(I have no one else)

I'm sick of playing sad songs to get me by,
I don't want to relate to another fucked up line.

I'm starting to believe it all comes back to me,
I could have better days if I let them be.
I'm starting to believe it all comes back to me,
but in your darkest times I hope you run to me.

You're not that interested,
I'm not that interesting.
I'll just get what I deserve.
You're not that interested,
I'm not that interesting.
I'll just get what I deserve.
Track Name: Partition
I came here alone,
leaving here alone.
Never getting what I give the world.

I’ll never satisfy in my lifetime,
good intentions aren’t enough it seems.
I’ve got it out for a world that’s out for me,
my walls are building up but are they strong enough?

The walls I built up didn’t do shit,
slipped up and let the wrong ones in.
What am I waiting for,
what am I searching for? (2x)

There’s more to me than I’ve come to believe,
I may be bent but I’m still one piece.
If I never fell short,
maybe I never even tried at all.
Nothing’s perfect the first time around.

Is it selfish if my only wish is to fix my shit?
As far as I can tell,
it’s up to I, myself, and only me.
I’m trying to believe.

What have I done,
what you think you become.
I think I’m not meant to connect with anyone,
and all I loved, I loved alone.

I know why storms have human names,
we take and take wrecking everything.

There’s more to me than I’ve come to believe,
I may be bent but I’m still one piece.
If I never fell short,
maybe I never even tried at all.
Nothing’s perfect the first time around
Track Name: Swallow You Voice
No one should feel this way,
always searching taking breaths to stay.
No one should feel this pain.

I'm 10 deep won't you sing me to sleep,
I'm overwhelmed with the hand that's been dealt to me.
Who am I to hope and dream
when the world not just meant for me?

Quick to hear but never listen,
if there's a point I've surely missed it.
I'll pick myself apart,
a vulture in my mind.

If only the outside reflects what's behind my eyes.
I've heard time heals all wounds
but it won't bring me back.

They say hope helps too,
but I've lost all of that.
(But I've lost all of that.)
I'll pick myself apart.

Who am I to hope and dream
when the worlds not just meant for me?
Maybe there's...
There's no point at all.

If only the outside reflects what's behind my eyes.
I've heard time heals all wounds
but it won't bring me back.

No one should feel this way,
no one should feel this pain.
Track Name: Small Talk
I'm sick of being someone's project,
listen close you won't fix me.
That's not what I need,
you're not what I need.

You've missed it entirely.

You are a pool and I am summer heat,
I always dive in and try to breathe.
I may not know right now what's good for me,
I'm trying...

(I'm trying...)

To the lovers who shared my bed,
I apologize for letting you in.
I'm just a daydreamer lost inside my head.

Even if you dug real deep,
and planted flowers inside of me.
(You won't fix me.)
A part of me would wilt the leaves,
and for all of that I'm sorry.
(You won't fix me.)

I'd rather forget than miss,
not looking for temporary bliss.
You won't change a thing.

Even if you dug real deep,
and planted flowers inside of me.
(You won't fix me.)
A part of me would wilt the leaves,
and for all of that I'm sorry.
(You won't fix me.)
Track Name: Samsara (Birth / Death / Rebirth)
What if I'm left wanting more,
stuck walking in circles until I can breathe again.
Will this cycle ever end,
I swear it feels like years spent sleeping.

Moments I wish to slow down go by too quickly.

I'll keep my head to the clouds,
my times been wasting and running out.
Will I be left wanting more,
spending my life searching for a crown.

Stuck in a prison my mind created,
can't live fearing what the future holds. (2x)

I'll keep my head to the clouds,
my times been wasting and running out.
Will I be left wanting more,
spending my life searching for a crown.

I'll reinvent myself until I'm content,
it's been a long time coming but I'm not found yet.
I'll reinvent myself.
Track Name: Death Rattle
I guess I figured you'd be back as quickly as you left,
and you’d make sense of the mess in my head.
But nothing's changed and I miss you just as bad,
if you could, would you come back?

Dream sweetly my dearest friend
not even death could tear you from my head.

And now you rest a few feet deep,
one of earth's most precious seeds.
Be at ease, you meant so much to me.

I wonder if you knew you were loved when you left?
At least you weren't alone in death,
I'll see you in the next.
I sit and stare where you laid across my bed;
You brought me comfort when there was no one left,
and now there's even less.

If you could, would you come back?

(I wonder if you knew you were loved when you left?
At least you weren't alone in death,
I'll see you in the next.) (x4)

I'll see you in the next.

Dream sweetly my dearest friend
not even death could tear you from my head.
And now you rest a few feet deep,
one of earth's most precious seeds.
Be at ease, you meant so much to me.

Dream sweetly,
be at ease.
Not even death could tear you from my head. (x2)

I wonder if you knew you were loved when you left?
At least you weren't alone in death,
I'll see you in the next. (x4)

If you could, would you come back?

Dream sweetly my dearest friend
not even death could tear you from my head.
And now you rest a few feet deep,
one of earth's most precious seeds.
Be at ease, you meant so much to me.
Track Name: Balancing Act (Feat. Kevin Arrieta of Carried Weight)
I wish you'd listen to what I didn't say,
it's often where I hide everything.
You don't know what I'm thinking,
I don't know how to feel.

I am a broken record,
going nowhere and gaining nothing

I'm difficult to say the least,
if only I could take my own advice.
Apologies are all that's left of me,
how do you fix what isn't broken?

How do you fix what isn't broken,
apologies are all that's left of me.
Maybe I'm changing too little too late,
a chip on my shoulder and a lot on my plate.

I wish you'd listen to what I didn't say,
it's often where I hide everything.
Maybe somewhere, somewhere tucked away,
is the root of what ruined me.

What kills me is I've never been a answer,
just another part of my problems.
If I let down what I built up,
maybe someone else could solve 'em.

Losing balance.

I need a distraction not a prescription,
or someone saying "think better thoughts."
If I could flip a switch and be content,
why wouldn't I have done it yet?

I wish you'd listen to what I didn't say,
it's often where I hide everything.
Maybe somewhere, somewhere tucked away,
is the root of what ruined me.
