Track Name: A Promise
I'll find the strength inside to live on.

You said I wouldn't make it on my own.
But I'm better off now than I ever was.
and I've come to realize that I’m alone
But I'll find strength in my heart.

I will rise.
This is a promise.
I will rise.

Put my hand against my heart and know that (I'm alive).
and It's beat will guide me on as I pass you by.

Your words, won't be, a weight on me. I'll become the man you will never be.

You will take your place on the back burner,
Where your fire will burn in vain.(Burn in vain)
Until now, your words have held me back,
But now I see you hide behind your hate.

You hide behind your hate.

(Put my hand against my heart and know that (I'm alive).
and It's beat will guide me on as I pass you by.)
Until the day I die, I will stand and fight
Every word you say is just wasted breath to me.

Until the day I die, I will stand and fight
Every word you say won't mean a thing to me.

Without struggle there is no progression
This has made all the difference.
My time has come and I will survive this storm.
You will be swallowed by the tide.
You will be left behind.
No saving grace, nothing left to say
for you.
This is where you end and I begin.

Put my hand against my heart and know that (I'm alive).
and It's beat will guide me on as I pass you by.)
Until the day I die, I will stand and fight
I'll find the strength inside to live on.

Live on.
Track Name: 21 Grams
I watched you take everything for granted
I watched you waste away.
What's become of me? I'm walking in your footsteps.
And I've lost my own.

Everything is now in black and white.
There is a war raging on inside.
Everything is now in black and white.
I am the catalyst of my demise

I'm destroying everything around me. Come clarity.
I'm destroying everything around me. It not me.

This is not who I am. I'm on the outside looking in.

Time and time again
I isolate myself from everything I once loved, I once lived for.
And now I'm losing sight of what it all meant to me. I'm on my own.

Everything is now in black and white.
There is a war raging on inside.
Everything is now in black and white.
It's not me. It's not.

This is not who I am. I'm on the outside looking in.

I can see clearly who I need to be. The me that I was will become the causality.

I know my place in this world and no boundaries
will ever separate me from what I've done.

(This is not who I am.)
Track Name: Raison D'etre (Reason to Be)
I will honor life by living.
Whatever's next, I'll embrace with open arms.
Never worried about what's to come, I'll continue going nowhere with everyone!

I won't be held back, I won't succumb, The future's something I will never hide from.

Together we will watch the sun die.

Consequences are meaningless now,
I'll be grateful for every mistake.
And I'd rather lose everything I have then do nothing at all.

I won't look back on what could have been. I will only live for moments.

We all die but we don't all live.
I'm tired of wasting time on fear and hatred.

My friends and I will always live our lives, day by day without regrets or shame!

Numb with pain and full of fear, We have forgotten what its like...
Numb with pain and full of fear, We have forgotten what its like to be alive.

Together we will watch the sun die.
We will dream on through the dark night.

My friends and I will always live our lives, day by day without regrets or shame!

So when I'm buried and my final breath is gone,
I'll have known of joy and pain,
Of love and hate,
I will have lived and died.
Track Name: Burden/Belief
What happened to my dreams?
Did I wake up? (Are they gone?)
Or did they fall asleep?
The world just doesn't seem as important as it used to be.
Things that were never important now mean the world to me.

When did life become a race?
Did they pull ahead or did I lose pace?
If I could just keep up, I know I could change it all,
but when Its when I push myself, that I start to fall.
And its when I try to stand that I'm forced to crawl.

What happened to my beliefs?
Did I lose faith or did faith lose me?
Even as I call out, I know my calls will not reach,
but I keep on calling in hope of relief. (I keep on calling)
My beliefs should carry me, but I carry my beliefs.
I will walk alone and wait for them to walk beside me.

When did I lose what made me me?
Did I tear it out or did it retreat?
I know I could find it if I just search deep,
but I'm afraid to look, for I fear what I'll see.

As long as I know what I see is only me,
I can dig deep enough to find what I seek.
Track Name: Martyr
The world around me is wearing thin.
Where will I turn when it all caves in?
I'll reject this place of helplessness.
I'll reject this plague of helplessness
It seems so easy to just let go.
But I'll take the road the no one knows.

Again, I find myself praying to something I can't believe in.
I now see the truth was in front of me for all these years.

I will never adhere to faith fueled by so much fear.
Am I someone I can save?

Can I find my own way through the darkest depths of tragedy?
Can I deliver myself when I'm surrounded by hatred?
A hate that bound me my whole life.
My whole life, I have been kept in the dark.

I'm only looking for an answer.
I'm only looking for myself.

The world around me has changed,
and I can no longer look at it the same,
No longer accept this fate.
It seems so easy to just follow.
Can I find the road that no one knows?


When I have no where left to turn,
I pray to a god that knows I don't believe.

I've learned that no one will carry me against the waves and currents.
I can either stop and sink, or I can learn how to swim.

Alone I'll face these demons dwelling inside of me.
Am I someone I can save?

I'll find my own way home.
The only light that guides me is my own.
I may never find the answers,
but at least I found myself.

I know the masses won't approve but this is who I am.
and I know of right and wrong and all struggles come to their end.

I'll find my own way,
I'll leave my mark.
I'll find my own grace

I will not surrender who I am.
