Track Name: Ghost
THERE IS SO MUCH LEFT UNKNOWN AND INCOMPLETE.
THE TRUTH, UNHEARD, IS BURIED UNDERNEATH.
A LIFE? A GAME? I NEVER KNEW YOUR NAME.
YOUR LIES ARE DYING WITH YOUR MEMORY YOU’RE JUST A GHOST CLOAKED IN DECEIT.
YOU SET THE PREMISE FOR SECRETS.
TRY TO MANIPULATE, YOU CAN’T CHARM A SNAKE.
FOREVER LOOKING TO FIND THE DARKER THINGS THAT YOU HIDE BEHIND THE SECRETS THAT LIE IN YOUR EYES.
YOU’VE MADE YOUR BED, NOW DROWN IN IT.
Track Name: Void
WHEN THE WINDS SHAKE AND STRIP THE TREES, AND LEAVES TURN GRAY; I DON’T WANT TO REMAIN TO SEE THE GOOD DECAY.
AND I WON’T STAY TO SAY GOODBYE, WHEN YOU KNOW NOT WHAT YOU DO TO ME.
YOU’RE ONLY HUMAN HOW CAN YOU SEE?
THE SORROW YOU INSTILL IN ME YOU CANNOT KNOW.
ANCHOR KEEPS ON DRAGGING ME DOWN, EVEN DEEPER TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAIN.
I SCREAM SO LOUD, BUT I CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHY YOU DON’T HEAR A WORD THAT I SAY.
ANCHOR KEEPS ON DRAGGING ME DOWN, I KEEP KICKING BUT I CAN'T GET AWAY.
ALONE WITH MY SINS, I’M IMPRISONED WITHIN MY OWN HEAD, AND I SEE NO ESCAPE.
I WILL DROWN MYSELF IN THIS SEA TO KILL THIS PAIN WHEN THE STINGS OF EXISTENCE SEE NO REMEDY.
I’LL LEAVE THIS PLACE—THE PURGATORY WITHIN ME—AND FILL THE VOID WITH THESE THIEVES OF SLEEP, TO OVERCOME THE SOLITUDE OF LETTING GO.
I STAND AND I SUFFER, BUT I CAN’T RECOVER.
I’M CUT TOO DEEP.
THE DARKEST PARTS OF ME ARE BURIED UNDERNEATH NOW, AND THAT’S WHERE THEY’LL REMAIN.
TEMPTATION, TAKE ME AND MAKE ME FORGET.
REFLECTION REPLACED WITH SHAME AND REGRET.
I WILL LEAVE THIS PLACE.
Track Name: Severed
YOU SPIT IN THE FACE OF GENEROSITY.
YOU’RE LOSING YOUR MIND WITH EACH PASSING DAY.
DELUSIONAL, BELIEVING EVERY LIE THAT YOU TELL.
YOU ARE YOUR OWN WORST ENEMY, YOU’LL BURY YOURSELF.
WE WON’T FORGIVE, JUST FORGET.
TOO SAD TO SMILE, TOO PROUD TO BEG.
TOO MAD TO SLEEP, STAY AWAKE INSTEAD.
IT WON’T FIX WHAT’S IN YOUR HEAD BECAUSE THE PERSON YOU USED TO BE IS DEAD.
SO DON’T CRY TO US ABOUT HOW YOU’RE AFFLICTED, THE ONLY MISERY YOU FEEL IS SELF-INFLICTED.
IT’S LIKE YOU’VE GOT A DISEASE AND YOU’RE NOT GETTING BETTER, BUT THERE’S NO ONE TO BLAME BUT YOURSELF.
WHEN THEY SEE WHAT I SEE, THE RELATIONSHIP’S SEVERED.
AND YOU FIGHT ALL YOUR FRIENDS UNTIL NOTHING REMAINS BUT ENEMIES.
YOU POINT THE FINGER AT ME, TAKE A LOOK IN THE MIRROR.
THE BRIDGE IS BURNED, AND YOU LIT THE MATCH.
NOW YOU SUFFER IN YOUR OWN PRIVATE HELL.
YOU’RE FORGOTTEN.
Track Name: Cages
RIPPING THROUGH THE SINEW, WE BLEED TO SURVIVE.
SCAR TISSUE FORMS ON CALLOUSED HANDS TO KEEP THE FLESH BENEATH ALIVE.
EVERY DAY MY TIME IS WASTED AWAY, AND I CAN FEEL IT SLIPPING RIGHT THROUGH MY HANDS.
FROM THIS CAGE I WATCH IT FADE AS MY LIFE DRIFTS AWAY.
YEARNING FOR DISTRACTION, WE’RE DISCONTENT WITH OUR LIVES. FOR PLEASURE WE PRAY, THEY TAKE IT AWAY.
THEY’LL TAKE TIL THEY’VE GOT WHAT THEY WANT FROM YOU NOW.
I FEEL IT CRUSHING MY SOUL.
