Track Name: Kingmaker
Well, don't be afraid
No matter what the others say
Don't waste your time
You have the power
to make up your mind

Save your own soul
No matter what you're told
Don't breathe and stare

Tonight (tonight)
Tonight is the night
Tonight is the night
(Tonight)(Tonight)
To prove to yourself
That you'll be alright
(Alright)(Alright)
The time is now
Tell them inconsiderate bastards
that they must bow down
To the throne
(The throne)

The throne is something
You'll always own
Lies lies
Everyone dies
when everyone's feeding you
terrible lies
Do me a favor
and just crown yourself
And create your own power
And your own wealth

Break these fucking walls
society builds
Expand your surroundings
(Expand them all)
Use them to your advantage
(Use them to your advantage)
And discover (and discover)
the power of will

Well, don't be afraid
No matter what the others say
Don't waste your time
You have the power
to make up your mind

Goodbye to all my constant fears
Hello to all my life's years
I want you to
Kneel before me
(You are the king)
Goodbye to all your common sense
Hello to all my confidence
I want you to
Leave me be

The choice is yours
It's not a chore
It should take no effort all
Don't make it so difficult
I don't want to see you fall

I don't want to
see you
fall

Keep moving towards the throne
Your wishes won't be granted
You are on your own
This city is yours
This city
Is
Yours

Well don't be afraid
No matter what the others say
Don't waste your time
You have the power to make up your mind
Save your own soul
No matter what you're told
Don't breathe and stare
The opportunity is everywhere
Track Name: Hawkeye
All he ever ever wanted was her
He looked back as she waved
And that's when he boarded his plane
And this love Is strongest when
he never knows if she'll see him again
And her word on a page
would never leave his hands

Keep your eyes on the prize as you aim
Have the backs of the ones who remain
Its in your hands we trust
Don’t let your words gather dust

He wakes up in the sand of desperate hopes to keep composure
When he looks around he sees that the enemy has swarmed all over
As he shot they would not back away
The days grew longer
He lost his mind
They stole his brain
They beat him senseless
in the desperate hopes for his pain

He didn’t know if he’d get away
They weakened his muscles
They strapped him to lead
They unleashed his chains and they
left him for dead

Keep your eyes
on the prize
as you aim

Keep your eyes on the prize as you aim
Have the backs of the ones who remain
Its in your hands we trust
Don’t let your words gather dust

She told me she loved me
And that I am the greatest man she knows
I can't wait to have our own home
We'll wake up in bed together
There's no storm we cannot weather

Instead of holding
the ones I love
I'm currently dodging
the bullets from above
As much as I want to run away
I came to this place just to save the day

Keep your eyes on the prize as you aim
Have the backs of the ones who remain
Its in your hands we trust
Don’t let your words gather dust

He picked himself up

He picked himself up from the ground
He picked himself up
From the ground
Track Name: Return The Slab
I saw my face in the lake
I chose the wrong path to take
How could I be so blind
to your words?
I let the greed get the best of me

The bodies have sunk to the bottom
And I thought they were gone

But I never checked my insides
I never looked in my eyes
I felt my heartbeat float to the top,
but I never realized
I held all their hearts
in the palm of my hand
It was the tell tale sign
I thought I'd understand

And as I sunk the boat
The lake, she spoke
The answers were inside of me,
They were right in my throat
Now it is the time to choke
on the blood of these sins
I drowned in the smoke

But they were right
They were right the whole time

They screamed to me, and told me
That I was to join them soon
They screamed to me, and they
clawed their fingers through every wound
At this point, I'm already screwed
At this point, I'm already fucking screwed

Return the Slab

Return the Slab
Or suffer my curse
Each hour it always gets worse
Return the Slab
Return the Slab

What's your offer?
Is this some kind of trick?
What's your offer?
I don't know what to pick
What's your offer?
Is there a prize?
What's your offer?
It's not my time to rise

What's your fucking offer?

I couldn't see myself in the mirror
However...
I saw my face in the lake
I saw my face in the lake

Lock your life up
an throw away the key
You weren't supposed to see this side of me
Lock your life up
And throw away the fucking key
This is the person I should never ever be

Return the Slab
Track Name: Burn Victim
I've seen you slip and fall
Buried inside these walls
I was always by your side
Every damn time you called
You still walk through fire
Taking the wrong turn
I guess I'll have to watch you burn

Well, look at that
Bitch you at it again
You telling lies to the sky
With a paper and pen
I never thought of truth you lack
Until you took me for granted
And stabbed me in the back
But it's okay, you don't know how it feels
To be the one who has to spin the wheel

Do you think it's fun
for me to see you fall?
Why would you think
that I never cared at all?

Burn
Now I'll watch you burn

I cannot stop you now
You clawed your skin with your nails
I gave you a chance
And you totally failed
And you totally
Failed

Damn,
I guess I never realized
You're a waste of my time
I was too hypnotized
I never met someone
So stuck up
Talking tough and
Acting like their so fucked up
I see you've set your own fire
Normally I would help but I'm too tired
Of this bullshit

Do you think it's fun for me to see you fall?
Why would you think
that I never cared at all?
(You spat in my face and turned)
Now I'll just watch you burn

As the fire burns
You start to fade away
You are the reason why there's
nothing else left to say

Running out of time
Running all out of time
Took it all for granted
And committed a crime
Better recognize and realize
I don't wanna look at you
with my own two eyes

Running out of time
Running all out of time
Took it all for granted
And committed a crime
Better recognize and realize
I don't wanna look at you
with my own two...
Eyes
Track Name: Sentinel
It never ends
It never ends for me
It's like my body's swinging on a tree
What a shame! I cannot see the sun
I thought this war was over
But it has just begun

The lights have turned off
And I can't see my face
Every single breath I take
Will now be erased
Look at me now
I did this to myself
Now is my time to
Escape from hell
Escape from hell

I think it's best if you just walk away

Is this the end?
Is this the end of me
And all the goals I may never reach
What a waste! I know this isn't right
Walk from the dark into the light

I will never let myself
Go down this path again
Things just aren't the same
As opposed to back then
But now I know
I know the fucking truth
And now it's something that I
have to prove
I have to prove

I think it's best if you just walk away

It's all for the best

I never asked for this shit in the first place
So why the fuck should I stick around?
I never asked for this self destruction
Gotta get that weight of my shoulders
It's a thousand pounds

It's not the end
It's not the end of me
I'll show the world
that I'm finally free

I think it's best if you just walk away
Track Name: Weakest Link
You thought you saved me
But you enslaved me
You were the one
That was holding me back
I had it all together
Created a path
that would last forever
But you're the one
That put the knife in my back
Because I put you first
Somehow this bridge would fucking burst
between us!! Between our souls

I don't wanna be
caught up in the moment
Caught up in all your trash
If I stay I will be nothing
I'll be nothing but your pile of ash
You were the push
to my success
But you sold your soul
Now it's all just one big
mess

After all the effort I've wasted
I should've let you go

I never felt so alive
Until I figured out
It was all a lie
I put you first
But you fucked it up
So why am I the one
that has to die?
I took it all. Took all the blame
It was the only way you could
ever be tamed
I took a bad turn
Now I'll never be the same

After all the effort I've wasted
I should've let you go

{I cannot sleep because I wonder
What it's like
to be afraid of it all
I wish I had your back}
But I just wish I knew
How to prevent the fall
{It was hell to see you suffer
To see you face
The cries for help that I saw
My heart is under attack}
I could've dragged you out
Out of these closing walls
But sometimes I just wish
You made a fucking call

I had it all figured out...
but you....
You had to go because...
You are my weakest link

Breaking
these chains
you gave
me from the first day
Ending
this bond
we have
I want to turn away
Track Name: Inertia
Your single sentence walks away
and runs without conviction
You're hoping time will turn back
every single coalition
How dare you love a life
that's endurably a life
you're made to be living
They look at you as if your sin is greater than their sinning

Don't run away
Stand against this trialled age
And everyday
Makes your passion fall away

Raise your glass everyone
you've made this boy ashamed of himself and all your wealth given to tithes
has made you weaker inside yourself

Don't run away
Stand against this trialled age
And everyday
Makes your passion fall away

Angels don't make mistakes,
Bitch

Dont walk ashamed
We're all ashamed

Find a day and repay all the sins
Make a list and remiss all the battles and
Grant a wish make it twice
we suffice to make
wine into water
Tell the others
I dont have dreams
I dream nightmares

Your single sentence walks away
and runs without conviction
You're hoping time will turn back
every single coalition
How dare you love a life
that's endurably a life you're
made to be living
They look at you as if your sin is greater than their sinning

Don't run away
Stand against this trialled age
And everyday
Makes your passion fall away

And take away those days
those lies you've heard
and learn to be whole again
Track Name: If You Can't Live Under It
The kiss of the devil
has stained my lips forever
a gun in your conscience
never shot, but got my silence
How could I see
when you made me feel
like I was worth it?

If you want lies
I'll make your bed instead
And sit you silent
inside your head

Twas my deceit
where the passion and desire meet
Your waking up to the
lies underneath your feet

I've prayed for a new beginning
I've stayed for I can't stand quitting
Do you know why I'm fighting here?
I've been praying for you my dear

So every lover thinks their clever
Now their heart is leather
Wear your sleeves so tightly
Hide the scars that shine so brightly
The war of words starts now
Don't back down
Don't back down

Twas my deceit
where the passion and desire meet
You're waking up to the
Lies underneath your feet

The lie of a back nine
going into overtime
love cries as lust buys
a one way ticket to paradise

I've prayed for a new beginning
I've stayed for I can't stand quitting
Do you know why I'm fighting here?
I've been praying for you my dear

Twas my deceit
where the passion and desire meet
You're waking up to the
lies underneath your feet
How does it feel to see the
damage you've done?
Fuck all your sympathy
This war has begun

If you can't live under it
you're gonna have to get over it

This was the love, the love that
brought my heart closer to yours
Was it really love or just the
love you showed behind closed doors?
I'm not the first, the first, and
I am clearly not your last
I hope you can look at yourself
without the fear of broken glass

Without the fear of broken glass
I hope you can look at yourself

I've prayed for (a new beginning)
Track Name: Between The Lines
Traitors liars cowards towers
Tell me what I can't do and what I can't find in my own life
be a serpent in the
roses and get
caught in thorns
before your cozy money makes you frozen
If you make music I'm the president
Smells of plants in your cloudy residence You can look elsewhere
You have lost our money

Counteract counteract
Make it count
Turn the base around
Actions safe and sound
We gotta turn on our headlights
To realize where we are going
Is it worth it?
Are these gifts worth showing?
Counteract counteract
Make it count
Turn the base around
Actions safe and sound

Turn the base around

It's like you to wish for fallacy when our dreams tell us leave we
wake up to hypocrisy
And everyday we search for the truth
and realize we'd never
find that in you
Our arms have closed all the ties
Flying away, waving goodbye

Our eyes
Fixed on the sky
Not giving up
Saving our lives
Our eyes
Fixed on the sky
Not giving up
Saving our fucking lives

Counteract counteract
Make it count
Turn the base around
Actions safe and sound
We gotta turn on the headlights
To realize where we are going
Is it worth it?
Are these gifts worth showing?
Track Name: Reflections
This space
in between my chest
is growing because I've known the best
I've ran away
I've taken lives
I've closed the space
between my eyes
I've known the things that make us whole
But separate I have seen us fall

I've seen the scars
That lay upon your arm
They scream to me
with so much harm
They remind me of
the things I've done
Like the times
I refused to see the sun
You're not awake
You're in a dream
Like the one I had
when I couldn't redeem
myself
And now you're next in line

Fight for me
I've seen it all before (I've seen it all before)
You're making sense of memories
that I locked away behind closed doors
I can't breathe
I can't sleep
Your actions are killing me
Open your fucking mind
So you can see what I see

You (yeah, you)
Yeah, you looked up to me
(You looked up to me)
when I haven't done any good at all
But just remember one thing
Know that you are loved

You're becoming a man
With the prospect of promised land
With new eyes that face the day
Let reflections fade away

Let's go

Just be your own individual
As opposed to a coward. Very typical
You can't say
you're okay
If you have followed my footsteps
I think it's time to make your path

One day you will see
The proud man I could be
Side by side, just you and me
We'll seize the day. We will see
One day you will see
The proud man I will be
Side by side, just you and me
We'll conquer this journey

You're becoming a man
With the prospect of promised land
With new eyes that face the day
Let reflections fade away

Get up

Killing everything
that involves my insecurities
Starting off fresh
with a heart full of purity
Stretching out, broadening
all my capabilities
Dumping out the past
if I utilize mobility

You should do
the same for yourself
You should do
The same
Track Name: Stimulant
My body's losing its touch

Channeling energy
Through the air
Is this pleasant atmosphere
Or something
that will make me scared?
I feel like I'm the gods from above
I know everything
I breathe, speak, hate and love

I think it's just a game
(It is. So why are you surprised?)
There is a price to pay
(But there's no tears running from my eyes)
Is your life worth the trade?
(You just don't know what it's like)

You and me have so much to discuss

It took away my hunger
But not my hunger for power
It took away my smile
But it took me many miles
It made me
an intellectual human being
It's fucked up
but are you seeing what I'm seeing?

I think it's just a game
(It is. So why are you surprised?)
There is a price to pay
(But there's no
tears running from my eyes)
Is your life worth the trade?
(You just don't know what it's like)

You and me have so much to discuss

No no no. No

You have no authority
Of the unnatural chemicals inside of me
It's making everything so easy
It makes me invincible

But wait
When will I ever get home?
When will I get my body back?
Why won't you set me free?

Goodbye to me

Cornered in a dark blue room
Contemplating if I should
give in soon
Cornered in a dark blue room
Contemplating if I should
give in to this trap

But if I'm gonna be real
I have to clear up

Shake my fucking hand
It's a deal

I think it's just a game
(It is. So why are you surprised?)
There is a price to pay
(But there's no
tears running from my eyes)
Is your life worth the trade?
(You just don't know what it's like)

Open the door and strive for victory
I have the key
Track Name: Justify
So as the tide fills our eyes
We've wasted time, we've wasted time
And as our hearts intertwine
We lose our minds, we lose our minds

It's
not as easy as it seems
and it's
It's ripping my heart out from the seams

So as you tell me
I wrap the words around me
And as you listen
I find new life
You listen

So as the waves crash the sand
We lose our hands
we lose our hands

And now our words are washed away
Our hearts to pay, our hearts to pay
It's not our fault and now we part
How did this start?
How did this start?

It's
not as easy as it seems
and it's
It's ripping my heart out from the seams

So as you tell me
I wrap the words around me
And as you listen
I find new life
You listen

Killing everything that ever
meant a thing to me
Tryna find the time so
I can get down on my knees
When the ground's too hard,
I'm afraid I'll suffer
I only need love once I
find a different lover
Art is a gift I wanna
give to the best of me
I'm gonna stop with this stupid shit
And stop with this adultery, please
Track Name: Oubliette
I had this memory
Of when we used to run around
Carelessly
These fucking memories
Tamper with my heart because you're
Not with me
(You're not with me)
You're not with me
Anymore

You’re a masterpiece
in a closed museum
You’re a shining star
through a blacklit lens
I'd move mountains
to see your face
Gone at the wrong time,
you’re in the wrong place

You’re a masterpiece
in a closed museum
You’re my shining star
I'd move mountains
To see your face
(I miss you. I miss you)

(Please come back)

We've been to hell and back
Because we fought together
How am I supposed to see the sun
under this stormy weather?
I cannot force myself to not feel this pain
It's eating me alive
I think I'm going insane

I know you can't come home
(I know you can't come home)
But you're still with me
No matter where I go
(No matter where I go)
Stay by my side
I will conquer everything
To point at which
the heavens will start caroling
for the push you always gave to me
From the beginning
Even though I lost you
We are still fucking winning

You’re a masterpiece
in a closed museum
You’re a shining star
through a blacklit lens
I'd move mountains
to see your face
Gone at the wrong time,
you’re in the wrong place

This candle's lit with a flame
Although things won't ever
be the same
We'll meet again one day
And finish everything
To start all over

I have these memories...
