Track Name: Say Goodbye
All of a sudden, you were reaching out for me to come home, but I wasn't ready to be set free. My eyes begin to hold the weight of the world and then I had thought how I brought myself to this place. My eyes begin to hold the weight of the world and all I could do was think to myself... When I am gone, I'm not coming back, so say your goodbyes and try to relax. As much as I'd like to stay, I couldn't if I tried so I'll just lay and say a prayer and close my eyes... Then I woke up staring into the light. It was the same one I had fallen towards before. I was by myself like I'd always been but now I'm here so now it's time to begin...
Track Name: Mirror
Hey you. Who, me? Yeah, how am I doing? You should know most of all. Can you even recognize the face of the man staring you into the mirror? It's been so long. Are you even there anymore? I'm starting to forget myself. Where has the time been passing all along now that I am so old and alone?... I've seen you with your head down now. It's been that way for way too long. Don't you let it take your life. I'll pray to God you're still alive... Don't you know? We have been waiting so long. We've been trapped in all of our thoughts, waiting for the day they'd come back to us and we're wasting away. It's been so long. Everything we thought was right felt wrong and time passed in front of our eyes so we will wait and listen and debate why we believed in all of the lies...
Track Name: Let Down
Don't let the world tear your heart out. Don't let them tear it from your chest. Life isn't meant to be a let down, but you'll struggle like the rest... And I've seen it all before, in me. You're always wanting more... Coming from one introvert speaking to another, don't take these words with a grain of salt. I've found all the ways to fall but nothing is worse than never getting back on your feet at all... And I've seen this all before in me. You're always wanting more... Don't let the world tear your heart out. Don't let them tear it from your chest. Life isn't meant to be a let down, but you'll struggle like the rest... I may not be able to make you understand, but I'll try the best I can. I can feel you slipping through my hands like the the grains of sand in a broken hourglass...
Track Name: In My Sleep
I came to and you were gone. I thought you would come back for more. Maybe I'm just dreaming. Don't know how the thought crossed my mind. I hope one day I will not wake up wrong. I feel I've been waiting, waiting way too long for something that never was, that never was in the first place. And I believe that in my sleep, your ghosts are haunting me when I needed you the most... But now you're gone and I'm left here alone picking up the pieces where we left as our hearts are mourning on... I hope this is just a dream. If so, please don't wake me up...
Track Name: Black Cloud
I have this cloud, hovers above and it's filled with lonely love. It rains on me now, yet somehow, none of it ever hits the ground, only my head. It's soaking wet and I just can't ever forget what you have done, hid in the sun, now you mourn for everyone. But you messed it up all on your own, truest colors you have shown and now that I've learned. You get what you earn but you gave no love in return...
Track Name: Ghost Face
I see her face staring directly at me. Oh she screams in waves of deafening frequencies and all I know, she always gets her way... And I can't be scared of anything she says. I already know that she's already there... In all my dreams, she gets away (I see her face) when I see her face (She screams in waves)... Don't fade away again. Don't fade away again. I see her face staring directly at me. She screams in waves of deafening frequencies
Track Name: Letting Go
I could walk into a crowded room and never have felt so alone and I need you, I always do when I am letting go, so I say goodbye every night and pray I don't wake up 'cause I hate my life when it feels like its never enough... And when they ask if everything's ok, I'll look them in the eyes and then I'll say... This is not your burden to bear, I'll just keep it all in. I will leave you all unaware of all of the trouble I've been in. I'll bury it down deep underground, underneath the surface. I won't make a sound if I come around. No one on earth deserves this pain... So this is love, a love I hate, so don't make a mistake. It's the only way for me to stay away from my grave. The music I write will never suffice for every night I've hurt and losing my sleep. For years I would keep on letting this get worse...
Track Name: Sea Of Noise
How can I feel so alone in a room with everyone I know? I feel like I'm drowning in a sea of noise and I've never learned how to swim, struggling to keep my head above the water pulling me under the explosions of overturning waves. There is no saving me, just let me tread the sea... How can I feel so alone in a room with everyone I know? I just feel so displaced. Sea of noise and people with no face... You have no idea how it feels to be trapped in a shell of yourself. Never underestimate all of these words you have heard. Don't you ever give into them. Stay afloat, keep your hope. Don't end up like me... How can I feel so alone in a room with everyone I know? I just feel so displaced. Sea of noise and people with no face... When the water floods over your head, you'll remember every word I've ever said... How can I feel so alone in a room with everyone I know?
Track Name: Eclipsed
See the light shine on me and the life I try to leave behind. And I've felt the sun burning on my back, it felt like a thousand knives cutting me at once, until you covered up all of the scars I own. Time will always heal every single wound and I am wanting to come see you soon. I'll see you soon, but how will everyone feel when I am finally gone?... See the light shine on me and the life I try to leave behind... Now I've seen the moon covering the sun. It's hiding all our light and I thought that soon, I thought that it'd be done taking over our skies. Time will always heal every single wound and I am wanting to come see you soon. I'll see you soon, but how will everyone feel when I am finally gone?... See the light shine on me and the life I try to leave behind. If you only knew everything that I've been through, then you'd understand, my whole world is inside your hands...
