Track Name: Alive in Your Grave
Something’s feeding off of my imagination
It’s in my chest, throughout my bones
There’s something about being alive in your grave that makes me feel at home
My dreams have questions, I have no answers, my mind is kept on hold.
We can’t explain this, I can’t face this.

What am I to do?
What am I to you?
We’re finding darkness in all the wrong corners
Head low & eyes closed

We blame the seasons that make us feel anxious
The warmth is setting as we remain cold
It’s not a medicine, it’s not a mindset
Our feelings can’t be controlled

We let our eyes roll back and let our tongues fall down our throats
It was a message, softly ringing
“One light, no savior” is what we were told.

What am I to do?
What am I to you?
We’re finding darkness in all the wrong corners
Head low & eyes closed
Track Name: Current State
Mindʼs been growing darker each and every day
Itʼs as if the only light I ever knew has been stripped and stowed away
Still Iʼm grasping for a reason to break of this old routine
I dug this hole myself; I will crawl my way out

Another evening spent staring at the ceiling
Millions of memories distorted in thickening haze
I awake, another night, to the same cold and distant eyes
that follow me, follow me down

No longer can control this utter lack of feeing
Became a shadow of myself, a shadow of myself

Say it will take as long as it will take
Still every inch of me hopes this sad soulʼs here to stay

Another evening spent staring at the ceiling
Millions of memories distorted in thickening haze
I awake, another night, to the same cold and distant eyes
that follow me, follow me down

Hurts to breathe, walls coming forth to consume me
Iʼve never felt less sorry

A shadow of myself.
Track Name: Give & Take
World is looking awfully grey
Fading more by the hour
Blindly staring the other way
So empowered and yet still we lack the guts to say
“no one’s listening anyway”

Give and take away
and forget about the hell you’ve made
Give and take it all away

Acting innocent, playing kind
Pushing dancing demons underneath
In the time it takes us to realize
We have long since forgotten why we bleed

Give and take away
and forget about the hell you’ve made
Give and take it all away

Progress gone wrong
The will of all is one
Progress gone wrong
The ills of all are one
Track Name: Pathway
Who said that taking the long was was the wrong direction?
Lies & despair
This road has its flaws, but tonight it’s paved perfection
Lies & despair
Lets promise one day we will get back there

Our hidden keys and our locked doors
Keep us oblivious
All your thoughts are diseased but use your mind as you please
Lies & despair

Guide the unwanted
Darken their path
Bruised beliefs aching for difference

Awake me before we fall
At least act like you care
Even if the road splits
Lets promise one day we will get back there

Our hidden keys and our locked doors
Keep us oblivious
All your thoughts are diseased but use your mind as you please
Lies & despair
