Track Name: Liars
Why burden myself, when there's innocent blood to be had

I've just gotten real good at washing these hands

When the sink fills with blood, my guilt washes away

You'll already be dead when I find something to say

I know it's wrong,

But my thirst for your blood seems right

And no matter what I try,

I can't seem to shake my sights.

I always knew it was my fault

But I still blamed you

I never lied to myself

But I could always lie to you

One day you'll see me as a liar

One day you'll see my soul

One day I'll forget myself

And return what I stole
Track Name: Alone
I've painted everything white

Trying to create light

But when your fires gone

It's dark as it's ever been

I'm alone as I'll ever be

If I'm never alone

Where are you right now

If you're everywhere

Where are you now

I’m alone

As I’ll ever be
Track Name: Rock Bottom
I guess its true what they say

About rock bottom

I haven’t been there yet

Sometimes I dream I have

But I wish I was

Then I still wake up

I guess I still have

I life left to take

What is this?

IF not endless striving

What do I need?

If not exactly what I have

What is hell?

If not endless striving

What is heaven?

If not, exactly what I have

When will I be

Who I was meant to be

And when I see

That I have all I need
Track Name: Blade, Detached
All I’ve forgotten

All I’ve retained

All the continuities

All that’s changes

I’m not my father’s failures

Not my mother’s broken promises

I still don’t know who I am

I’m not the container

I’m contained

I haven’t lived an honest life

I don’t lead an honest life

God, what is an honest life

You are the blade

Detached from the handle

You are the blade

And I’m your handle

You are the blade

Detached

Raw, real, able to feel

I’m none of those things

So I rob and I steal

From those who speak
Track Name: Fading Flame
I fell to my knees

You fed my fading flame

In this grave again

All I am is dust

I’ve forgot my frame

In this grave again

I've been everything to myself

I've been nothing to you

I'm sorry

I fell to my knees

You fed my fading flame

I'm whole again

I've been everything to myself

I've been nothing to you

Forgive me

I swallowed an ocean

My bright life once dimmed

I choked down every salty memory

I broke down and fell to my knees

You fed my fading flame

I'm whole again

I laid down in the pit that was left

The damp grave I'd made

It wasn't a choice I wanted to make

Yours wasn't the life I meant to take

Everything has changed

But it's all the same

All my life

All of my life

Passing me by

I stand by the wayside

All of my stones

Stacked on the sand

What was it worth

My efforts exist

Only for an instant

What is life?

What am I living for?

What is death?

what's worth dying for?

All my life

All of my life

Passing me by.
Track Name: No Man
Guess I forgot,

I guess I never knew

What makes a man

What makes a man

I’m scared, scarred and drowning

In every serious thought X4

That’s no man

I guess I forgot

I might have just died

I’m starting to realize

That Ill never be a man

And I never was one X2

I guess I forgot

I guess I never knew

What makes a man

What makes a man
