Track Name: Green City
Years in prejudice & Years Ignorant.
The close-mind [disconnected] that goes on [from the world] in the streets.
I refuse to let their blindness be the last say so and I won't stand to hear their fabrications

You claimed a title that nobody ever gave you.

Realize this, you are no better than me.
We've all got struggles but I can see clearly.
I've set my path you just follow the common road instead of finding your own.

Is this who you planned to be? You're a self made vagabond.
Get out of your cycle, Get out of your decay.

The mud is thickening.

You and your band of degenerates.
[Why the fuck should I care]
Why can't you seek development?
I am not your advocate.

This is is the city that bares your roots, why can't you let them grow?

All you talk about is packing your bags, but you will never leave.
Track Name: Freeside
Rip the pseudo sacred heart
Son of man, you are fault

Sin fills your daily life, sin fills my failing eyes
End my life

End my life, take my shame, make sure they don't know my name

And what's most frightening is not knowing if I enjoy this state of mind

This won't be the end of this
Show real virtue and not be a slave

Gilded streets
Jaded soul
Track Name: Saudade
Insecurities plague most of us.
Its becoming hard to be okay.
Take off the mask, show me your soul.
Let me see you bleed. Be reborn tonight.
Ashes are the seed. There's no one by your side.

And I'm finally the man standing in that field, watching the stars fall around.

Nights grow cold. Forever wanting to feel your warmth.

Everyone I've ever loved has turned their backs around me. Six feet under has never felt like luxury. Hanging by a thread was never my intention. I've been trapped in my head for too long.
Track Name: Dreamkiller (ft. Thomas Helvenstine)
I've seen the barrel of a gun between by eyes.
Knees on the ground, I've been dying inside.
Slaughtered in doubt. Not knowing what to do
and when to do it. This will always be my enemy.
My enemy.

Bury my body where it can't be found.
Bury my body, Bury my body
Bury my body where it can't be found.
Bury my body.

I wield the mask of a coward. Never acting.
Always pondering. This is my flaw.

I've been looking, I've been searching
For a meaning to this life. Through the years
Through the pain. I've been bleeding.

There is a crucial moment in time where all hope is lost, and nothing could ever revive it. That final ember that clings to life in the furnace will never be whole again, and all is nothing but a dying dream.
I embrace tragedy with open arms, but I still
hold my defiance ever so dear.

I've been looking, I've been searching
For a meaning to this life. Through the years
Through the pain. I've been bleeding.

Through all the years, and through all this pain. I've been searching.
I've been looking, I've been searching for the meaning to this life.
Through the years and through the pain I've been bleeding for far too long.
Cauterize these wounds.
Track Name: Streetwalker
21st century fault, new disease, new trend.
Broadcast all, bastardize generation.

Vultures come in circles and leave the carcass bare.

I'll watch as you suffer in the blood that surrounds you.

Let go of your morals, sell it to the snake.
Give them off, discounts rates, charge it to the wolf.

Let Go

Cross the white line I'll watch you break
Track Name: Godspeed
There is no more waiting. There is no sand left.
Beat up blackened kids is all we’ll ever be.

There is no more grieving. There is no more heart.
Marching and shackled. We are the gallows

You know you can’t give in, even though we’ve lost it all.
Lead me from this darkness inside and take me away from here.

My eyes see

There is no more waiting. There is no sand left.
Beat up blackened kids is all we’ll ever be.

There is no more grieving. There is no more heart.
Marching and shackled. We are the gallows.

Turn my past into gold. Turn my future into dust.

You are my Queen of unrequited love, and I am the King of delusional hatred.
I am the red in a world filled with black and white.

I am not lost, I am found.

There is hope, There is faith. It is time to break free; you’re on your own.
Take this chance to live a better life, there’s no one else, only you decide who will you be?
Track Name: Cleansing
Take your gilded offering, Cast it to the side.
I'll no longer sway; I've been refined to stand.
You've pushed me for far too long.
I'm done with your manifestation.

Introspection for days;
Searching for something that was never there.
I lived with blinded faith. Vivo con mala suerte.

Out with your eyes. You are the venom within my veins.
Off with your head. Farewell to your poison.

Scour the threshold. Bask in glory's light.
I've always been the one to set you free
Go out and Define: Veracity
How could you be so foolish?
See it as it is, My perseverance is coming to an end.

Day in Day Out Day in Day Out
Faced no end, I saw no light.
I gave you everything you asked.
You took everything I had.
Take it back, you can take it back.

Fuck. Wholehearted offerings of my everything.
I never fulfilled your endless want.
I won't be another hollow shell that you can live through.
I'm the only thing you have.

Scour the threshold. Bask in glory's light.
I've always been the one to set you free
Go out and Define: Veracity
How could you be so foolish?
See it as it is, My perseverance is coming to an end.

My perseverance is coming to an end.

I've always been the one to set you free
Can't fight your vice.
I'm right here; Open arms
Can't fight your vice.
