Track Name: Sound Awake
Time and time again
it slips away and loses us within
the hands keep turning but it all feels the same
without you i've lost the meaning to my name
I've seen too much in my short time
and seen through time itself
so I wait for time to take me away

I can't promise you forever
because I'm not here to stay
just hold on to these precious moments
until time takes me away
they say nothing lasts forever
it's a god damn shame
when I leave this all behind
just don't forget my name

I'm only young
but I'm filled with time
a broken life starts with a broken mind
there's never a chance to fall asleep
once you've awakened yourself for good
I've given up on myself
I've given up on everything

Now I'm feeling these feelings
it's just like I'm dreaming
still I can't seem to find any sleep
it's all the lights at night that always keep me upright
all through the sleepless nights I stay sound awake
staying to take the time just to make sure you hear everything i've been aching to say
This all won't go away until I'm completely erased
until then I'll stay sound awake

I can't find any sleep
so i lay here sound awake

I can't promise you forever
because I'm not here to stay
just hold on to these precious moments
until time takes me away
they say nothing lasts forever
it's a god damn shame
when I leave this all behind
just don't forget my name
Track Name: Essence
Now you will feel my fire
Every word you've ever said
just built me up to tear you down
I guess we'll see what you're made of now
I'll shatter your dreams
rip you at the seams
I'll make you see that I'm better than you will ever be

Now you'll feel my fire
fuelled by the darkness that you inspire
you can run, you can't hide
I'll leave you wishing you had been the one who had swallowed their pride
you won't forget my fucking name, bitch

You think you stand so high above us all
but from up here, all the way down there
to me, you look pretty mother fucking small
you can try and follow in our footsteps
but you'll never keep up
how does it feel knowing you weren't good enough
unlike the rest of us

you said I could never do this
you said i shouldn't even try
now I'm making it happen
I'm chasing my dreams all the way to the sky
this is all I've ever wanted
and all you've done is wonder why
well this is more than just getting by
this is how I feel alive

this is how i feel alive
this is what my fire burns for
this is more than just making sound
criticism is all you live for
so build me up
I'll fucking tear you down.
Track Name: Deceptions
Come with me
and we'll turn this make believe into reality
just so you can see
forget the past
hold on to make this last
there's not a thing that we can't do
let's show the world what we could've been
tear off her mask and bring to light what she really is
once again it was all for you
just as it always is
I won't fight for you if you won't fight for me
this is what we've built up together
now I'm trying every day just to fucking forget her
she means nothing to me
and I never want to see her fucking face again
you make me god damn sick
carry on
with your deceptions
and expect you'll be just fine
just say the words
this can all be over soon
just shut your eyes
hold back the tears you cry
one last time
I'm running out of options girl
I'm gonna lose my mind
you've got me
you've got me
you've got me right where you want me to be
under your finger, at your command
at your disposal just as you planned
well this won't play out the way you think it will be
today I'm taking a stand
just say the words
cut all the ties
hold back the tears and shut your eyes
you could never find the right words to say
so listen up to mine and all I've kept away
take your broken promises, problems and lies
your intentions are clear from a revealed disguise
I gave everything to have a heartbreak returned
and after all I've done, still you're not concerned

you've slipped away from me
and still I miss every little thing

this was supposed to last forever
just you and me
I should've never trusted you
it's plain to see
Track Name: In Sight
Run
run away from the world in front of your eyes
and leave the bullshit behind
run from the monsters in your head
and continue in blissfulness instead
just get away

Run away from the world that break your back
and the predetermined goals and ambitions
"success" today is measured in means of riches, estate and authority
you're all slaves
slaves to faith in bills
sold freedom as easily as just being told
nothing means a single thing in the end

things are only as good as you believe they are
things are only as good as you believe they are

everything i have, everything i love
they say will always stay above
they bring me happiness today, but will be my pain tomorrow

So i've stopped hanging on
and realized the truth
nothing lasts forever
nothing stays the same
fuck this all
this world is nothing but a fucking shame

I've come before my time to be trapped in this disgusting world
generations too distracted by the pursuit of substances
passing the answers to find,
you don't know anything

You don't know anything
no not a single thing about this life and what it's for
you don't know fucking anything
run from the monsters in your head
and continue in blissfulness instead
Track Name: Lost At Sea
I will keep you under an ocean that lives inside the sky
to see the endless tides wash a seamless horizon
I will keep you under an ocean that lives inside the sky
to see the endless tides

I need to find some solid ground
the more I sail these waters
the more I wish they'd pull me down
foggy dreams of a lighthouse
foggy dreams of a place that I called home

lost at sea
I'll find my way back to the shores where I should've stayed
lost at sea
I'll find my way back to the shores where I should've stayed
do you know what it's like to forget how stability feels?
what it's like to have ground under your feet?
don't come to me and act as if you know my story
my scars will prove my privation and show you what I've been through
to become me
who I am
is who I will always be
a person I can change
for all of those who I used to know
I wish you could see me
now
I am who I am
who I've become
and no one knows me better than myself

my lungs are full of water
and I can't make a sound
if I'm the captain
my ship will never pull me down
my past makes these rough waters
look like glass
I won't let this breath be my last

the sea keeps pulling me away
away from where I should be
one day I will make these waters mine
so I can't go down with the ship this time
I am captain of the ship I sail
If these waters make it happen
I would have only lived to see myself fail
there is nothing left to be said
Track Name: Moving Forward
I'm afraid for the things I love to disappear and change
and watch me as I slowly do the same
do I keep holding on
or do I stop moving forward

I would never admit to this all
but the way it makes me feel makes a challenge out of every day
breath after breath
nothing ever feels the same
nothing will ever bring them back
I'm afraid for all the things I love to disappear and change
and watch as I slowly do the same
the way I look at things now
is changing more and more with every single passing day

I would never admit to this
but the way I am now makes me fight more than live my life
do I keep holding on
or do I stop moving forward
Where did my mind go?
and why was it me that this happened to
where did my life go?
and what do I have to show

for the wasted time spent in this blissfulness
I would never admit to this

I'm afraid it's already looking like it's too late for me
there's not a single minute of my time that I'm not wishing i could get it all back

CHORUS

Screams:

Stop for a second
breathe in the night
look into my empty life
keep holding tight
we're running to the end of the line so let's make these moments last
I would hate to see another precious life destroyed
so as long as you have mine
I will have your back forever and we can make each other feel home again

Cleans:

Stop for a second and breathe in the night
we're running to the end of the line
look into my empty eyes
keep holding tight
just make me feel alive tonight
and as long as you have mine
I'll have your back forever

Teach me how to make the most of each moment
and to make these feelings last
I swear I can't keep living this way
held up and brought down so far with an unforgettable past
I've been losing my mind to myself since the day that this has all been changed
there's just one question
that just never leaves my mind
do I keep holding on?
or do I stop moving forward?
