Track Name: Taking Chances
What is love, I will never know.
Every living thing dies alone. (x2)
My self worth sinks like a stone,
(I'll take the low road,
I'll choose a broken home.) (x2)

It's getting harder to turn the page,
and everyday seems to fade to gray.
I'm nothing more than a ghost of me,
stuck between second best and reality.

This sinking feeling won't get the best of me,
I won't let this break me again.
We become what we feel or dream,
and I feel like a worthless being.

What is love, I will never know.
Every living thing dies alone.
My self worth sinks like a stone.
(I am alone,
and I dug this hole.) (x3)

Grind my teeth to my gums,
take a swing at life.
These days will pass me by,
I just need to try.

I'll take a swing at life,
and not just for myself this time.
These days will pass me by.
These days will pass me by.

I'll take a swing at life,
and rest assured I'm landing it.
My friends and family all agree
I won't amount to shit.

I'll take those odds.
Track Name: Dias Malos ft Aaron Garcia (Seditionist)
I have lost all certainty in everything,
and my mistakes will be the death of me.
I can't tell what's good for me anymore,
if life is for the living what am I still here for?

What is my purpose,
I'm sure to die searching for it.
When will I give up the ghost,
I'm over all of this.

So long I've wanted to get my life on track,
screwed by the world like a whore on her back.
Life is a game that no one can win,
where do I forfeit bring me my end.

(I beg the day comes that I can sleep forever.) (2x)

There's nothing like wishing life would just pass you by.
Here one day, gone the next in the blink of an eye.
No one can understand the things I feel inside my head.
I'm over all of this,
I'm done with all of this.

I have so much to give,
but even more to lose.
And if anything I've ever learned is close to true,
life moves on, (life moves on)
with or without you.

I have nothing in common with anyone,
and all I love is dead and gone.
I'm not too sure where I'm headed in life,
I'm too far left to ever be right.

(I walk a path of self destruction,
I won't preserve myself may I fade away.) 2x
(Out of sight out of mind,
Some thing never change how hard I try.) (2x)

No matter what life gives,
it always seems to take so much more.
Never lost, never found.
Always stuck in between.
Track Name: Losing Motivation ft Justin Houle (Keepsake)
I've woken up on the wrong side of the bed,
everyday for the past few years.
I try and tell myself things will get better,
but there's no gold when your life's lost its meaning.

Everyday I run out of things to say,
stuck finding reasons to hide my face
I swear to god I'd take my own life,
if it would make things a little alright.

I am so sick of the place I'm in,
I am so tired and so hopeless.

They say that every dog has its day,
I'm still waiting for mine;
something must change.
They say that every dog has his day,
I'm still waiting for mine, it hasn't came.

I'm still waiting for mine, it hasn't came.

Would you still look at me the same if I said that I,
have no will to push forward and would just gladly die.
I am so sick of just scraping by,
I am so sick of these bloodshot eyes.

It seems I'm headed straight for failure,
no matter how hard I try.

If bedroom walls could talk,
mine would scream that I have lost my mind.
I try to pacify the demons I have inside.
I've lost what it takes to be me,
I've lost myself and everything.
It seems I'm headed straight for failure,
no matter how hard I try.
Track Name: Same Old Story ft Sabir Alili (Beneath The Veil) & Josh Williams (Legends Shall Fall)
Sometimes it's far too easy to give up,
and when things get tough the weak start folding.
I've tried to hide my mistakes but it's never enough,
I can't have a future if I'm stuck in the past.

Every day's just another day playing life's little games,
every day's just another day trying to find your way.
Every day's just another day hoping things won't be the same,
and I'm afraid that things haven't changed that much.

I swear I'm trying to not let this beat me up,
there's just a little too much coming at me all at once.
But what if I wrong in the end about all of this,
and there's no hope for me or anyone else.

But what if I'm not the one who is corrupt,
and everyone I let in doesn't give a fuck?
I'm content without ever finding love.
I'm content without ever trusting anyone.

Burn every bridge I have ever crossed.
It's not my loss, everyone can fade away.
Burn every bridge I have ever crossed.
It's not my loss, everyone can fade away.

Never let anyone in,
they all find a way to fuck your head. (2x)
Never let anyone in,
they'll just stab you in the back.
Never let anyone in,
be content with what you already have.

Never let anyone in.

(I'm left with strangers who used to be friends.)
(I'm all alone but I'd rather be dead.)
Track Name: Beacon
I can't be the one to fix the world,
I'm not too sure what is broken in me.
I may be young but I'll die of an old heart,
this constant stressing can't be healthy.

This is what rock bottom looks like.

I'll be the beacon you'll see in the distance,
an example of what not to be.
I'll be the bastard you'll steer clear of,
and hope your children don't turn out like me.

I feel so much room for improvement,
my life's a stain that will not come clean.
For far too long I've been building my walls up,
at the end of the day I am still nothing.

I am still nothing. (2x)

(Heavy heart you're caving my chest in,
I'm content with just giving up.) (x2)

I can't be the one to fix the world,
I'm not too sure what is broken in me.
I may be young but I'll die of an old heart,
this constant stressing can't be healthy.

I'm getting tired of trying to play catch up,
with a world of fakes that never cared that much.
(Turn your back on me let me rest my eyes,
Real eyes, realize, real fucking lies.) (x2)
