Track Name: untitled
Believers say everything happens for a reason. believers say we're all a part of a bigger plan. i've felt more in my life like everything was fleeting, like i'm more than alone, and i'm less than a man. come and go they leave with ease, i've seen it all before, and with every empty day my pain has flourished. carved from stone i've chipped away there's nothing left of me, i watch them all as they walk away left defeated. i watch them all walk away. indifference, i know i've got nothing left. indignant, we're all alone i hang my head. i used to search for something a reason to be great but i realize now i've wasted ink. i've wasted ink i've wasted ink on dead man's poetry. anxiousness and emptiness the tightness that's in my chest, based on years and years of empty dreams and broken promises.
Track Name: man to man
he didn't have the time to be a man for his family, too busy puttin' in his time at the bottom of a stiff drink. showed his twisted love with the back of his hand, he didn't deserve her love he didn't deserve any of us man. i hate to admit it but you had an effect on my life, i'll never admit it how the fuck do you sleep at night. you've gotta live with your self how the fuck do you sleep at night. beyond my indifference for the meaning of my last name, thanks to my father's addictions at 23 it's the closest that we've ever been. and now i realize i can't even recall your face. a man now so filled with resentment, live in a haze no identity. the common ground that we walk on i never knew you and you'll never know me. feels like i never knew the good days, feels like sometimes all i feel is hate. he's too young to be so ugly bitter or trapped by anxiety. he's to young to be so fucking bitter. we're too young we're far too young. that's just way of the world that we live in her strength's the start and the end of me, that's just the weight of the world that we live in, her strength's the start and the end.
Track Name: fear
fear no one lives or dies, fear never look you in the eyes. we all live with fear, mine's taken hold of me, failure in my mind i can't sleep i can't dream. paralyzed shut my mouth to loud to breath, silence in my life's become a monster, ruined me. don't speak of it don't let the darkness overwhelm, don't buy a suit don't sow my eyes i'll wander through these streets of hell. our days are numbered eternity does not exist, and thanks to you forever i will live with this fear, in my reflection and in my sould, fear, of always sleeping on my own. have i gone mad will happiness return to me? i'd rather live with all these fears than be the me that you see. reality the day to fucking day, cut your hair and sing the blues conditioned to die conditioned to lose. nothing left to fear but fear its self, nothing left to fear but i fear myself.
Track Name: dead in the water
dead in the water. neither heaven or hell has a place for me forever treading water in these cold dark seas. with panic in my eyes and fear in my heart making peace with loneliness is a good place to start, i'm dead in the water. panic in my eyes, fear in my heart, the panic in my eyes is met with fear in my heart. neither heaven or hell has a place for me forever treading water. panic in my eyes and fear in my heart making peace with loneliness, dead in the water. i feel i'm slipping away into darker days, i wanna be alone i just wanna go home. i feel im slippining away remember me i just wanna go home. i feel im slipping away into darker days, i wanna be alone, i just wanna go home.
