Track Name: Bury Me
I am alive in my dreams,
Erased from reality,
My life's a plague,
You need to bury me.
I am alive in my dreams,
Erased from reality,
So listen up as I plea,
For you to bury me please.

Within the shadows,
I'll confine myself.
With hope to escape,
The darkest of days.
I have become everything that I hate.
Realisation, I'm the undeserving man.
Myself to blame, (and I can only blame myself),
Now I'm staring at (The reflection of what I am).
I can not believe what I am seeing.
My eyes must be closed, Am I still dreaming?
No. It's not a dream.

(Chorus)
Cut out my eyes and off my ears,
I don't want to see, I choose not to hear.
It seems there are too many things that are lost before they're found,
I've been caught up in the stars with my mind buried in the clouds.

Put in perspective I am nothing,
with nothing left.
Becoming a menace I've become a mess.
(My life's a fucking mess)
They always say, life's not easy.
And I sure as hell am not, taking the easy path.

(Chorus)
Cut out my eyes and off my ears,
I don't want to see, I choose not to hear.
It seems there are too many things that are lost before they're found,
I've been caught up in the stars with my mind buried in the clouds.
Lost, can I be found?

I am begging on my hands and on my knees.

Free myself, free me from everybody else,
Free myself, from everybody else.

The weight takes its toll but I will never admit defeat,
You'll never bury me,
You'll never bury me,
You'll never bury me.

It seems there are too many things that are lost before they're found,
I've been caught up in the stars with my mind buried in the clouds.
Track Name: This Apathy
Can't you see that,
This apathy,
Growing inside of me,
Far worse then my anxiety,
Now overbearing, my bodies tearing apart.

From the inside out,
I'm overfilled with doubt,
My minds the enemy I want to cut it out.
Instead I drown myself,
At my free will,
Won't someone please either end me or save me from this apathy?

Save me from this apathy.
It's hard to face life alone.
One day I'll find you,
Just hold tight my love.

I can't take it, take it, no I can't take it.
This is a part of me that brings me down,
So low, how far will I fall, how far?

I was never prepared for this,
A personal hell with my own therapist.
I know that my heart is my weakness,
As long as it's beating it's what keeps me seeking.

I'm searching for you, spitting out lies but you deserve the truth.
Now fear is haunting every move, consuming, consuming.

(Chorus)
I can't take it, take it, no I can't take it,
This is a part of me that brings me down.
So low, how far will I fall, how far will I fall?
As I keep searching, for the person,
I feel my sanity just slipping away.
I'm losing my mind, a matter of time,
Before I take the fall and leap from the edge.

Don't sympathise,
I'll pay for all my lies.
Don't let me fall.
I'll right my wrongs,
I swear I'll try.
Don't sympathise,
I'll pay for all my lies.
Don't let me fall.
Don't let me fall.

I swear I'll change.
If it's what I must do, or walk away again just like I always do.
Forgetting everything, the broken promises, should I just take this step?

(Chorus)
I can't take it, take it, no I can't take it,
This is a part of me that brings me down.
So low, how far will I fall, how far will I fall?
As I keep searching, for the person,
I feel my sanity just slipping away.
I'm losing my mind, a matter of time,
Before I take the fall and leap from the edge.
Track Name: Victim
Sometimes, oh sometimes I just wish that I was dead,
To kill the thoughts, to kill these thoughts inside my head.
I can stare at my reflection, despising what I see, but what is it that I see?

(Chorus)
Misconception,
My inability to see,
Inability to see that I am a nobody.
Play the victim,
No ones watching me,
There's no one watching over me, no one to hear my story.

Is there, (ha ha ha) is there hope for me?
Sometimes in life you have to lose, in order to gain.
Sometimes in life before love, comes pain.
So I'm sorry, I'm sorry, but not for all that I've done.
I'm sorry, I'm sorry but take a look how,

I've been wasting away.
I can feel my vitals erasing with me.
And I know these feelings of anxiety,
Is the form of my mind just torturing me.

Self inflicting pain has built a wall that can not remain.
You're gonna watch me break it down, right now.
Right now.
(Yeah, yeah).
No longer do I want to hate myself.
No longer will I let you hold me back.

(Chorus)
Misconception,
My inability to see,
Inability to see that I am a nobody.
Play the victim,
No ones watching me,
There's no one watching over me, no one to hear my story.

So is there hope for me?
Reassure or lie to me,
Provide me certainty,
Don't tell me it's the end.
So is there hope for me?
Reassure or lie to me,
Provide me certainty,
Don't tell me it's the end.

No, don't tell me it's the end.

Free, Me, From, the thoughts in my head.
Please release me.
Track Name: Hurt
(Chorus)
As much to my dismay,
I am still alive today.
And ever wonder what it will take,
To fall asleep and never wake.

A crippling affliction of my nervous system.
Mediocre, overcomer.

I sit and speak the truth,
To a stranger I don't even know.
Provide me guidance, about my problems,
When I know the problem was you.
I'm scared to face this truth,
To break comfort, break away from you.
Hearts will heal, memories will fade,
Prescribe me meds to numb this pain.

(Chorus)
As much to my dismay,
(To my dismay)
I am still alive today.
(Alive today)
An ever wonder what it will take,
(What will it take)
To fall asleep and never wake.

I'm learning, that hurting is better than suffering.
The addict in me, Is now letting go.
Let me go.
I won't hurt you no more.
I can't hurt you no more.
We've both hurt enough.

We can never take back all the things that we've said,
or the things that we've done.
So please move on.

I needed help.
So I sought it, I found it.
I needed space.
So I left you, for solitude.
Passing through hell.
To find clarity, past suffering,
I know this hurts, I guess that's life.
Sometimes you have to hurt to find yourself.

So please move on.
Track Name: Picking Up The Pieces
I, I just want to feel whole.
But the sad truth is,
I don't even know what whole is anymore.
Now I feel like I have nothing left,
But I know that I'm worth so much more than this (So much more than this).
I've spent a lifetime listening to people questioning, the choices I make, the path I take.
Suffocating my will to live.
But I won't break.

(Chorus)
I don't want to lose control.
I've struggled my entire life,
To let it all just go.
And I'm not perfect,
But I am not worthless,
I'm just trying to piece myself, back together again,
Back together again.

Find the pieces,
Connect the loss,
Erase the people,
Or prove them wrong.
(I'll prove you wrong, I'll prove you all wrong).

(Chorus)
I don't want to lose control.
I've struggled my entire life,
To let it all just go.
And I'm not perfect,
But I am not worthless,
I'm just trying to piece myself, back together again,
Back together again.

This heart burns,
For comfort.
This heart burns,
For purpose.

My steady hands begin to shake,
My nerves react unpleasant ways,
I toss and turn, I'm twitching.
Addiction is sinking.
There's no more pain as I blackout,
Consuming substance to free myself.
Rescue me, save me from myself.
Time only heals so much.
