Track Name: Imperfectionist
Imperfect youth, together we fall
Behind this hate is a life worth living for
Everyone has a secret and some will never be told,
Every imperfection carved in my mind will be left behind

My eyes lay closed at night and believe me I am fine
What the hell is wrong with me?
Someone tell me wrong from right

Underneath what our eyes see is beauty from beneath
I'm still on my knees praying for a new me
I'll close my eyes and when I wake up,
Will I be okay? Will this pain just go away?

My eyes lay closed at night and believe me I am fine
What the hell is wrong with me?
Someone tell me wrong from right

Carved in my mind I'm going blind,
'Til the day where this becomes a distant memory
Where I will seek no more,
And I will beat my worst enemy

Imperfections won't be the death of me

If only they knew what this felt like,
Or knew my other side,
Would you run and hide?

We will find a way out of here and never look back,
Let go and free all of our fear,
Forget all that we had
Track Name: For What It's Worth
Misguided leaches, you only care about yourself,
I don't want your fucking help,
Disguise the foolish, disguise the foolish hands we're dealt,
Unveil this place called hell

Here we are, blinded by

Here we are, we're blinded by the lies that we find,
Tearing us apart and leaving us behind,
We can't live this way under feelings of hate
Save yourself, save today

This doesn't mean the end, we're trying to hold on
Don't leave here alone down this wretched path
Get up, don't believe everything you've been shown
Close your eyes and pretend you don't know

Here we are, blinded by

Here we are, we're blinded by the lies that we find,
Tearing us apart and leaving us behind,
We can't live this way under feelings of hate
Save yourself, save today

The blind will never lead us down this wretched path,
We will never be brought down by anyone

Don't fucking push me

We will never be controlled, 'til the days where we grow old,
I will bring these walls down

This is a war that you're not ready for, 'til our ends meet
We will never find peace

How times have changed and we've come to what we know,
Your guidance is mislead by lips that are better of sewn
Track Name: Like The Tide
It's like for once in my life everything feels alright,
I promise to never forget you, you keep my heart beating

It's like for once in my life everything feels right,
And so I watch the tide surround us, that will never leave
And like the tide, I hope you'll never leave my side

Set away and abandon hope, we'll leave this place and we'll rest ashore,
And leave behind these wars we once fought
You're always on my mind so let's make tonight,
I hope you never leave my side, never leave my side

You're so far away it kills me, and every single day you take my breath away
You're so far away it kills me, and every single day you take my breath away

And so I lost myself and tried to drown the feeling,
But no one would believe me or understand my meaning
No matter how hard I try, I'll never lose sight,
And like the tide, I'll never leave your side

Set away and abandon hope, we'll leave this place and we'll rest ashore,
And leave behind these wars we once fought
You're always on my mind so let's make tonight,
I hope you never leave my side, never leave my side

We're chasing lost days but they'll never come back,
Right now is all we need and I'm okay with that

Stay with me, I won't forget you,
I will get past this
I'll never lose sight of what is mine,
And like the tide I'll never leave your side
Track Name: Far From Home
Violence is all that is shown,
And hatred is all that is known,
I have no hope, I'm surrounded clones
I'm so far from home

What if I could have my time back?
What if I could erase what I have done?

What if I never had these nightmares?
What if I never spent these nights scared?
Why does it feel like home is so far away?

This is a war I'd rather not fight today,
Take me back to when I wasn't afraid

What if I could have my time back?
What if I could erase what I have done?

This is not my home,
This is not my home,
Have we lost all hope?

What if I never had these nightmares?
What if I never spent these nights scared?
Why does it feel like home is so far away?
What if I never had these nightmares?
What if I never spent these nights scared?
Why does it feel like home is so far away?

I only have myself to blame,
This game will never change
And I can't stay the same, can't stay this way
I've never felt so afraid,
I've never felt so much pain
And I can't stay the same, I'm not okay
Track Name: Victim
Victim
Hearts were made for breaking,
Yours is mine for the taking
Calculate every moment in your life and see what appears

You said you had it all, but look at you now,
You're washed up and forgotten,
Look around, no one gives a fuck

You'll never change your ways,
You're so blind to all that surrounds you, you never tried,
Realise you're all the same, and believe me when I say you'll never change

Your words mean nothing to me, they make me fucking sick,
This world that surrounds me is burning away like the thinnest wick,
Burning away like the thinnest wick amidst of all your shit you stupid fucking bitch

You'll never change your ways,
You're so blind to all that surrounds you, you never tried,
Realise you're all the same, and believe me when I say you'll never change

Wasted beyond repair,
You'll never cross my mind, you will never waste my time,
I'll put this all behind myself

You're a victim of your own game
Play the victim, you'll never change
Track Name: Lifeless
We are lifeless, we are standing still,
We're standing still in a world that doesn't care how we feel,
In a world that will not listen to the word's we speak,
And it just takes from me

These are feelings I'm yet to understand,
And never was I given a chance,
I can't control these feelings,
And they will fucking kill me, they'll be the end of me,
This is the life I lead

I lost myself so long ago,
But I'm moving forward and now I know that I'll pick myself up,
I'll pick myself back up again

I feel so lifeless, as everything around me gets laid to rest beneath my feet
I'm sick of lying, spent all this years fucking trying,
To stand up on my own two fucking feet,

I feel so lifeless

I'm used to being alone, no guidance from what I was told,
Show me which way to go, without you I will never know

I lost myself so long ago,
But I'm moving forward and now I know that I'll pick myself up,
I'll pick myself back up again
Track Name: Reaching Out
Our minds are frozen in time, your eyes remain all I see at night,
You don't know what it's like to keep these feelings inside

So many stones left unturned, every day without you still hurts,
I hope I've made you proud, never gave in, never backed down

We've travelled this world alone, through times we have felt so cold,
Our minds frozen in time, you taught me this world is mine

These shadows overcome me, just know that I have tried,
And I'll be just fine, there's a hand reaching out for mine

So many stones left unturned, every day without you still hurts,
Through old times until now, never gave in, never backed down

We've travelled this world alone, through times we have felt so cold,
Our minds frozen in time, you taught me this world is mine

These days just pass me by, who will I leave behind?
So what's left of me? Who will set me free?

My soul is buried beneath your bones,
My purpose here is left unknown, I'm coming home

I can't wait forever, I'm coming home

It's been a struggle lately to keep my calm,
I've been alone and it's been years since I've seen your open arms
Take my hand, pull me away,
We'll rewind what this world's let in today

I'm coming home, my soul is buried beneath your bones,
My purpose here is left unknown
Through all my struggles you were always there for me,
But with all you taught me I am a better man
