Track Name: Sonder (Intro)
Tried to put my finger on my problems,
it took my whole arm; still haven't solved them.
Take me overboard,
I'll walk the plank.
This life isn't meant for me.

Tried to put my finger on my problems,
it took my whole arm; I still haven't solved them.
Take me overboard,
I'll walk the plank.

This life was never meant for me.
Never meant for me.
But I'll keep on trying,
I'll get it right just watch me.
The world keeps spinning in the darkest of times.
Track Name: Roadblocks
I've hit a roadblock,
I'm a wreck and its all my fault.

I'm at a loss for words;
everything's coming up short.
Never had a chance to live the dream,
so many years passed where I couldn't sleep.

Let me close my eyes and drift away,
my minds a fucking mess;
I'm gonna set things straight.(2x)

I need to come to terms,
with how things needs to be.
I'll learn to hope again,
I'll find the light in me.
I'll find the point to me.

This will not define me,
I refuse to live with my eyes closed.(2x)

I won't just be a waste of space,
forever searching for better days.

I am not my mistakes,
I'll keep in mind I'm only human.
I am not my mistakes,
I'm not a failure unless I accept it.

You are not your mistakes,
keep in mind you're only human.
You are not your mistakes,
not a failure unless you accept it.

Not your mistakes. (2x)

I'll leave a mark somehow,
I'll make it work somehow.
A whisper at the start,
but a bang when I go out.

I'll leave a mark somehow,
I'll make it work somehow.
The only thing that's stopping me is my self doubt.
The only thing stopping me. (2x)
Track Name: Soliloquy
Once again I've woken up with you in my head,
I guess it's fine 'cause you never really left.
I'm sorry for being the way I am,
I'm just a work in progress.
A fucking work in progress.
I lose myself in the pictures of me and you,
maybe in another life...
Maybe in another light...
Maybe in another life...
I'll be what you need.
I can't bear to be a memory.
Seasons changed and so did we. (3x)
Please come back.
Track Name: Gone, But Never Forgotten
Gone before my eyes,
but not forgotten;
you still have a friend in me.
I can't believe that you're gone now,
it all seemed to go so quickly.

Where are you now,
you were the light that never went out.
Where are you now,
are you looking down on and smiling?

Please don't go where I can't follow,
its selfish I know but come back home.
Please don't go where I cant follow,
I'll see you soon at the crossroads.
See you soon at the crossroads. (2x)

This world has taken so much away,
with no intention to give it back. (2x)

I'll be seeing you soon,
shine your light on me.(2x)

Everyone that I'll ever know
will follow the reaper home.
I'll be doomed to be six feet deep and cold.
Six feet deep and cold.
Track Name: And History Repeats
All the skeletons I try to hide,
pick my brain at the worst of times.
Like rainy days when I'm tired of gray,
this buzzing never meets an end.

I swear its not just in my head.
And so I guess it's fine,
dealing with the downside.
Even though my sighs have sighed,
I'm still trying to make it right.

I can't apologize for all the times,
I didn't do what was right.
I got so caught up in smaller things
the bigger picture passed me by.

Some say my broken thoughts can't be fixed,
and they're a bit more cracked than when I last checked.

I swear its not just in my head.
And so I guess it's fine,
dealing with the downside.
Even though my sighs have sighed,
I'm still trying to make it right.

But "that's life",
"Oh that thats life".
I find myself in disbelief of all that I'm told. (2x)

I guess it's fine,
dealing with the downside.
Even though my sighs have sighed,
I'm still trying to make it right.

Like rainy days when you're tired of gray,
this buzzing never end,
It never ends.

Should I give up,
should I give in?
Am I a waste of life,
am I a waste of skin? (2x)
Track Name: Departure
To die is to live,
and I'm not too sure what I've done.
I'm choking on the words stuck on the back of my tongue.

Mind over matter,
I don't mind that I don't matter.
Mind over matter,
I don't mind that I'm losing my head.

I'll try anything,
and never get a result.
How can I feel so alone?
I thought that things could only go up from here,
I can't see anything.

I see no hope in me,
day after day I dwell on past mistakes.
(Past mistakes.)

I see no hope in me,
night after night I toss and turn in bed.
(In my bed.)

This really isn't me,
its not how I should be.
I can't see anything.

The light has gone out of my life forever,
I'm blinded by the lies that I've been told my whole fucking life.
(My whole life)

It's not that I want to die,
I'm just tired of being here.
Instead of waking up,
I'd rather lose myself on my own terms.
(My own terms.)
Track Name: Turning A New Leaf (feat Leland Miller of Genocide District)
These hands haven't made their last mistakes,
I'll either make it or lose it all someday.
And there's nowhere to turn to,
when your thoughts have it out for you.

I can't move forward if I always step back,
I can't burn brighter if I'm scared of a match.
How can I change the outcome if I never try?

I can't bear to take another day for granted,
I know my next breath could be my last.
I'm only one man doing the best I can.
The world won't break me,
I won't fall to my knees.

I will break the world,
before the world breaks me.
Despite everything stacked against me,
I'm not giving up, I'm not giving in.

For a beginning to start,
an end must begin.(2x)

Turning a new leaf has done nothing for me,
so now I'm uprooting trees.
Turning a new leaf has done nothing for me,
all in hopes to fix me.
