Track Name: One Last Time
You left me when I kept believing in you (I believed in you)
Why does everything always seem to fall apart?
I did what I could. I did what I could.
The problem may all be in my head while the heartbreak spreads.
I harbour these hard feelings only to be left empty.
One last time.
Now nothing can be changed. I promised that I'd never beg.
But the truth is here when I say I only wanted the best for you.
I only wanted the best, the best, the best for you.
How can you look at me with those eyes?
(With those eyes)
I see the person that you have come to be. I get it, we grew apart.
I'm just having a hard time adjusting to the fact
That you're not the person I thought I knew.
You threw it all away.
Now nothing can be changed. I promised that I'd never beg.
But the truth is here when I say I only wanted the best for you,
I only wanted the best, the best, the best for you.
Track Name: Stones & Sorrow
Given the chance would you go back to warmer memories dug up from this cold mind?
This daze that I am left in has me weary. The thoughts of forever.
I have thought about you everyday since the day I have met you.
A freeze frame in my mind. Please stay here by my side.
A love with a mind of its own carried us to softer stages of fear.
So why is this still unclear?
A day at my worst you're testing my will.
I cant go back, I can't go back. Will this change?
I'm sick of this hate and all of this pain.
All of this hate and hate pain pushing me back from, hate, pain, pushing me back from you.
I have thought about you everyday since the day I have met you.
A freeze frame in my mind. Please stay here by my side.
A love with a mind of its own carried us to softer stages of fear.
So why is this still unclear?
Despite. Despite. These changes.
Despite all these changes surrounding us my heart cant remember to forget you.
The pages keep turning and your hand is no longer in mine, in mine, in mine.
I have thought about you everyday since the day I have met you.
A freeze frame in my mind. Please stay here by my side.
A love with a mind of its own carried us to softer stages of fear.
So why is this still unclear?
Track Name: Ancestors
This hasn't passed when you said nothing was quite as it seemed to be.
Nothing was quite as it was to me. Subject to ill will.
Take this change and now realize where we now stand.
We have become a subject, a subject to ill will.
The first step to accepting change is allowing yourself to surrender, surrender.
Now you must understand that your harmony begins from within.
Can't you see its this fallacy, this weight that we create
Pushing us to the brink of this world that we made.
They hope that we see what once was.
The compassion is not in our eyes.
Our fate is in one place.

how does it feel to feel for the first time?
For the first time.
How does it feel to feel for the first time?

Things just can't change but we can't just forget buried under this emotionless taste.
Nothing will change if we cant just see our mistakes.
What have we lost? What have we gained?
What have we lost? What have we fucking gained?
The compassion.

how does it feel to feel for the first time?
For the first time.
How does it feel to feel for the first time?
Track Name: Crossing Over
When you start to abandon your old beliefs you start to forget
What really matters, really matters in the end.
Finding comfort in other misfortunes is so weak.
You did what you did and now you are where you are.
Step by step we will get there.
And now the winds are scattered in me pulling me away.

Always right where I'm supposed to be.
What's meant to be will always find its place in me.
I've been waiting so long and time was never on my side.
This all makes sense, somehow the stars all aligned.

So take this for what it is worth, the tables have turned.
This path you are on has no promise for change.
And a hollow heart with a steady mind has you left with no more control.
We are set free. We are set free.

Always right where I'm supposed to be.
What's meant to be will always find its place in me.
Now let this be a lesson learned that forgiveness is for the strong
and the values that you never known have you feeling all alone.
Your past is planning to spoil your future so don't settle in your broken ways.
Your past(highs) is planning to spoil your future so don't settle in your broken ways
Track Name: Grave Blankets
Feeling the past pick me apart.
Memories flood my head.
Straining and suffering.
Sometimes letting go isn't the hard part,
It's wanting to stay away. Stay away.
I've lost touch with myself.
And I hope you never have this problem
Because I'm finding it hard to get myself back.
Is this how you want things to be?
Cause I can't seem to find the sleep?
Is this how you want things to be?
Cause I can't seem to find the sleep?
It seems pointless to try to escape
Because I'm constantly dragged back down the path of despair.
Dragged back down. Dragged back down.
Paralyzed from the neck up.
Powerless thoughts. Powerless thoughts.
Because I built this home for you in my heart
And I can see the walls falling down.
Windows shattered. Smoke in the air. Left here alone.
Is this how you want things to be?
Cause I can't seem to find the sleep?
Is this how you want things to be?
Cause I can't seem to find the sleep?
I'm now at ease with where I lay.
I'm now at ease. These grave blankets.
Track Name: Choke Hold
Let this fucking end
Hate fills my veins.
Punishing starts now.
Don't say a word.
Now this is what you made.
Look at what you did.
And all this tension here won't kill me.

Don't listen to a word they say.
The hardest part of giving up is giving in.
Don't listen to a word they say.
The hardest part is giving in.

Watch what you say.
Take back what you said.
We have have silenced you.

Don't listen to a word they say.
The hardest part of giving up is giving in.
Don't listen to a word they say
The hardest part is giving in,
giving in, giving in, giving in,
giving in, giving in, giving in.
Is this what you wanted? [x2]
Track Name: Subsister
I'll gain hope in this misery that's held me down for far too long.
Wasted days spent in neglect haunting my ever move.
These demons wont go away. I tried to believe and forget,
I tried to believe but I live with too much regret. Regret.

Oh. In a time like this, in such time like this
What will I amount to if I admit defeat?
In a time like this, in such a time like this
What will I amount to if I admit defeat?

That's it enough is enough. Stop looking down on yourself.
It's time to pick yourself up.
And we'll learn that the fear inside is just no reason to hide.
It just a test of strength.

I'll find my way like I have before my pain was forced back down.
Suffering doesn't stay. Suffering goes away.

Oh. In a time like this, in such time like this
What will I amount to if I admit defeat?
In a time like this, in such a time like this
What will I amount to if I admit defeat?

I am trying my best to right my wrongs.
I am trying my best to right my wrongs.
I am trying. I am trying my best to right my wrongs.
I am trying my best to right my wrongs
Track Name: Survivors Guilt
I don't know what I will turn into.
But the panic seems to always settle in.
Thinking has been torture.
I just want to be safe.
Track Name: Chapter XII
We had hopes of making a difference.
Will the verses carry? Will they carry?
The time and effort invested may be the light that reflected.
Reflected. That reflected. A bond held through.
This will keep us coming back for you.
We will never end. Expecting the worst.
Although these trials ahead will have to pass us first.
Pass us first. Never feeling complete.
You may never understand. This means everything to us.
And the nights I spent with these thoughts made me feel at peace.
I'm apprehensive at best. Give me peace, love, empathy.
Peace, love, empathy. Peace, love, empathy. Give me peace.
And we made this promise a promise to keep.
A bond held through. This will keep us coming back for you.
We will never end. Expecting the worst.
Although these trials ahead will have to pass us first.
Pass us first.
