Track Name: Glass bones
I resent my first breath,

On a scale of 1 to 10 how alive did you feel back then?
Leave no trail because there is no way back
The world you seek will bring everything the old one lacked
My fingers are numb, I yell the tar out my lungs
With skin made of paper and bones made of glass
I do believe this too shall pass

Your dreams are made of shattered nightmares
When all is said and done, who's to say we'll fight fair?
I come undone at the crossroads,
realizing I am made of glass bones

On a scale of 1 to 10 how alive did you feel back then?
Leave no trail because there is no way back

Your dreams are made of shattered nightmares
When all is said and done, who's to say we'll fight fair?
I come undone at the crossroads,
realizing I am made of glass bones

Your dreams are made of shattered nightmares
And when all is well, who is to say we'll fight fair?
I come undone at the crossroads,
realizing I am made out of glass bones

I could never run away from any other place I call this one my own (5x)
Track Name: Flatliner
Sitting on the edge of your seat, savor blood while you taste defeat
I am a martyr like those before me, so show respect when you stand before me
Sitting on the edge of your seat, savor blood while you taste defeat
I am a martyr like those before me, so show respect when you stand before me
To be realistic in a world of fantasy is blessing,
We are the saviors of a world that's ending
There is no god to cure the sins in me,
No prayer calms the beast in me

I carry these chains on my own,
I don't need a light to guide me home,
I don't belong here so why try?
'Cause in the end I'll always be alone

Flatliner I am, denying like I am
These soulless eyes that die, Flatliner I am

Light the match, motherfucker!

Sitting on the edge of your seat, savor blood while you taste defeat
I am a martyr like those before me, so show respect when you stand before me
Sitting on the edge of your seat, savor blood while you taste defeat
I am a martyr like those before me, so show respect when you stand before me
To be realistic in a world of fantasy is blessing,
We are the saviors of a world that's ending
There is no god to cure the sins in me,
No prayer calms the beast in me
Track Name: Currents
What is my position? Do I stand here and await collision?
Wounded and battered, my aspirations lie scattered
What is my position? Do I stand here and await collision?

I moved on and walked away, but reality chased me anyway
My home is broken down, so I walk between the alleys of my town
Where am I headed? Where is my better tomorrow embedded?
Where am I headed? Where am I headed?
Where are we headed? And where are headed?

We walk without destination, living life without motivation
Knee deep I drown here, a king without coronation
Knee deep I drown here, a king without coronation

To live we die today, live and fight on this day
We live to die today, live and fight on this day

LEAVE ME THE FUCK ALONE

I fight to live today, we fight to live today
Track Name: Transitions
Transitions

Do you know who you are?
Do you know where you are?
Do I have to explain to you where you are?
Give me a fucking clue so I can start
I'd rip your fucking chest open just to show you there is nothing inside,
You're out here swimming with the sharks no regard for human life,
I'm speaking in different tones, ones you will never understand
Setting fire to our home, implanting this impending fear

Twisting my words like a speech impediment, we find ourselves in this predicament
Somewhere somehow a trace of you is embedded into me

Sink into me, rewire the system
Sink into me, and watch me listen
Sink into me,
Sink into me

Divided by this equation, I've never such deprivation
For the love of your god, release me from this segregation
Because the pupils in your eyes are focusing,
On whats not important

Divided into pieces I don't quite understand, I still wait on your hand

Because the gravity of our situation is far from your reality,
The divinity we seek lies only in our affinity,
your affinity, and in our affinity, your affinity
Track Name: Foundations
I've thrown myself away in this bed waiting for a new day to start
And while they walk around in circles I'm too busy thinking myself superior to them
I know at heart I'm not the person I wished to be at the start

I changed along with the times, submitted to the spaces between these lines
Just a fill to the cracks on the sidewalk, a grain of sand in an hourglass
I've given up so many times, giving up seems like something I have to give up on

And until I stop being a walking paradox,
I'm afraid I'll never cease to be oh so lost

I've thrown myself away in this bed waiting for a new day to start
And while they walk around in circles I'm too busy thinking myself superior to them

I know at heart I'm not the person I wished to be at the start

I changed along with the times, submitted to the spaces between these lines
Just a fill to the cracks on the sidewalk, a grain of sand in an hourglass
I've given up so many times, giving up seems like something I have to give up on

And until I stop being a walking paradox,
I'm afraid I'll never cease to be oh so lost

Oh so lost,
I'm afraid I'll never cease to be oh so lost

I'm afraid I'll never cease to be oh so lost
