Track Name: Bloodline
Verse:
Don't you try to stop me from dying,
It's all I look forward to.
So please, please don't let me believe,
That I could get more out of you.
This mountain of dirt, where we laid down our claim,
Turned a poor boy into a king.
Ruler of a grave where we're bound to lay,
This bloodline is running thin

Chorus:
Save me if you need some kind of faith,
You can scream out my name
Save me if you need some kind of faith,
Pray away all this pain
Blame me if you need something to hate

Verse:
Wish it were easy to open your eyes,
And see what you pretended to be.
It's hard, it's hard to throw down your arms,
And give into your enemy.
Rattle your cage, in this prison of war,
Scream into their deafened ears,
The blood, the blood that twisted your tongue,
Sends you far away from here

Chorus:
Save me if you need some kind of faith,
You can scream out my name.
Save me if you need some kind of faith,
Pray away all this pain.
Blame me if you need something to hate

Don't you try to stop me from dying,
It's all I look forward to.
Track Name: Bring Me Down ft. Roxy Mercier
It's a given you're not gonna ease my pain,
This burden is yours to keep.
Is it wrong to say that I can't relate,
Is it memory or is it just a dream.

Let me leave or let me die

Chorus
I thought I told you, I thought I told you,
I'm still crying while my love grows colder,
So don't you bring me down again.

You've done your time, but you'll never find,
How to make the world a part of you.
But it's not your heart, if it's not a part,
Of anything that remains of you.

Let me leave or let me die

Chorus
I thought I told you, I thought I told you,
I'm still dying while my heart grows older,
So don't you bring me down again.
Track Name: Never Ending Nights
It’s the start of a never-ending night
Forever never lasts if you’ve done something right
Your fears grow fonder with the years
Faceless as you stare a hole through a thousand broken mirrors

The thought of a new you is to speak some old lie
Choke until you realize you’ll be perfect when you die
Borrow a body to go searching for a soul
Can’t take back the things you’ve asked from everyone you know

Chorus
The stars in your eyes in the days before you die
When you start to fade away
From the harm that comes from the arms
Of someone you once knew

The moon is a light bulb sure to break
Stolen by tomorrow’s sun to die another day
The sky waits for a chance to fall
But you can’t be scarred by these falling shards
When you feel so small

It’s the start of a never ending night
Forever only lasts if you’ve done nothing right
Your fears grow darker with the years
And you crush everything you touch
And all who hold you dear
Track Name: Looking Glass
Yesterday, it's all the same, just reflections of today
Just another sight that's borrowed, from tomorrow's looking glass
Wash away, all the days, watch the colors turn to grey
Looking down a pit with no bottom, falling in the bottle is close enough

Chorus
Every little thing you try to be, only ever seems to be for nothing
The door was always there open but you cannot break away

Save yourself, from this Hell, you've got a soul that's meant to sell
Sell it to the devil for a dollar, trade it for a heaven that is half yours
Legacy, twisted branch in this family tree, gone when it finally falls with me
Chopped down, to make some firewood, the only good you'll ever do

Chorus
Every little thing you try to be, only ever seems to be for nothing
The door was always there open but you cannot break away
Track Name: Only Ghost
You’re the only ghost in this town
The only queen without a crown
Trying so hard not to drown
And I saw you chasing your dreams away

A victim of your only crime
A witness who only wants to lie
A jury that can’t ever decide
And I saw you chasing your dreams away

Chorus
If this fading light
Cuts you like a knife
This broken house won’t make a home
But you’ll stay there anyway

You try so hard to hide the truth
Swallow the lie surrounding you
It was nothing that you couldn’t do
And I saw you chasing your dreams away

Another day that has come and passed
You’ve done nothing strong enough to last
Begging for it to hold you back
And I saw you chasing your dreams away

Chorus
If this fading light
Cuts you like a knife
This poison prophet won’t guide you home
But you’ll follow anyway

Chorus
If this fading light
Cuts you like a knife
This crown of thorns won’t make you king
But you’ll wear it anyway
Track Name: Streetlight
He took a walk out on the war path,
Scared little man power tripping to nowhere,
One look from those eyes,
Gets you tongue tied,
His verbal noose wraps around your neck,
So cavalier, he'll never see the fear
In these pretty words that keep you here

Chorus
Red and blue beacon in the night,
Ignoring the warning
Till you're through, burned out like a streetlight
Ignoring the warning

Follow the line down this dead end,
Turn you back on those who think they know
Tugging at the bottle with your heartstrings
Your heart of glass can't be broken again
Trailing on your foot steps, down the avenue
Did you ever think you could break away

Red and blue beacon in the night,
Ignoring the warning
Till you're through, burned out like a streetlight
Ignoring the warning

White lines cross a stick man, beneath a streetlight
And I don't know why
