Track Name: Haven
I believe it is human nature to destroy and rebuild.
But when one becomes self destructive that is our souls telling us we must change who we are to be where we belong...

The world I built around you has completely crumbled
and now I have no where left to go.
I've never felt so alone.
I've become a wandering soul.
Holding onto anything in reach.
If only you could see the pain that's buried beneath.
A constant struggle to find solace in where I am.
But where does happiness begin?
Countless hours spent staring at the walls I've built around me.
Countless years I have been staring at nothing.
Starving for the end. I will never let anyone in.
This is my hell.
Living is my only fear and I know that I will let go.

You were my haven, you were my home.
Track Name: Darker Than Black
::
The brightest days keep us going but behind these eyes
the world is darker than black.

Lost in my mind.
A reality hidden by twisted visions.
Lost in my mind.
A living nightmare that goes on and on and on.

If its all in my head why does it seem so real?
(Torn from a life its purpose, my haunted soul.)

Everything seems to be something it's not.

The brightest days keep us going but behind these eyes
the world is darker than black.

Dedication is just a way to waste time.
I hold onto nothing.

Inside I'm just
an empty frame
from broken promises.
I'm empty.

My heart is weighed down for the doubt
dragging me closer to hell.
If it's all in my head,
Why does it seem so real?
Torn from a life its purpose, my haunted soul.

These scars are here to remind me of what I've lost.
Why do I continue to sabotage myself?

I can only hope that one day this nights sky gets swallowed by the sun.
Because tomorrow never comes.

It never comes (Darker than black)
It never comes (Darker than black)
Track Name: Stranded
Will the circle ever break? I'm beyond hopeless, nothing left to say. There's nothing worse than feeling empty and worthless.
This is the curse of living without a purpose.

The future haunts me , I can barely sleep.
Where do I go from here?
I know I'm not the only one. x3
But I can't help feeling stranded.

Stuck here in this deserted mind. I've left myself behind.
Deserted, I am weak
but our bond holds on to me.
Abandoned in these memories.
I have to let it go.

(Nothing) I am weak.
(No one) I am broken down.
(Could ever) help me now.
I will dig myself out.

There's no hope left for me.
I'm stranded for eternity.
I'm stranded in these memories.

The future haunts me I can barely sleep.
Where do I go from here?
I know I'm not the only one. x2

Can you hear it?
This is the sound of an empty heart.
This is the way it will always be.
This is the sound of an empty heart (Can you see it?)
A hollow space in me.

(Nothing) I am weak.
(No one) I am broken down.
(Could ever) help me now.
I will dig myself out.
I'll find a way to fill this hollow space in me.

(Nothing) I am weak.
(No one) I am broken down.
(Could ever) help me now.

This is my confession:

I have nothing. No one. No guidance. No morals. I can't leave the past behind. Without you I can barely breathe. I'm stranded in these memories
Track Name: Immortal
What do you do when you lost your way?
What do you do when you can't find any reason to go on?
I can't run from this forever.
But running is all I've ever known. (All I've ever known)
I can't run from this life.

All I ever think about is wanting to die, but I can't find a single reason why. (I cant find a reason why!)

Lifeless, my weary hands cling desperately to the edge of my existence.
Jaded, my mind plagued by hatred, Soulless, a broken promise to find peace.
Will I make it?

Lifeless, my weary hands cling desperately to the edge of my existence.
Barely breathing, I'm just scared I may never see what my future could be.

Constantly putting myself down, fueling my misery. I lost my reason for this emptiness. I know not what I'm capable of now. I was just being selfish searching for the easy way out.

So weak. So tortured. I was ready to let go. I wasn't living. I was just breathing. I thought I saw the worst.

Through these trials, my life will not go to waste. Every problem I face will never push me away again. Ill never take a step back.

But this is just the beginning of an endless cycle.
There is no end. We just start again
Existance, just a sinous path to the soil beneath.
Track Name: Sinkhole
All this time I spent searching for what made me weak. But now I know you were the poison slowly killing me.

The cause of my despondency. You lied, you lied straight through your teeth. (You Lied)

Your absence in my life has been a blessing in disguise.

I finally found the strength to lift my feet and walk away. (To escape, to escape)

I'm ready to face today. I've found a brighter side that'll you'll never see. (That'll you'll never see)
This is the first time that I won't let suffering ruin my life. (won't let it ruin me)

It gets hard to keep my head above this water, this sinking feeling.
I let you drag me down here, into these dark depths. This time I'll let you sink below.

I won't allow myself to be swallowed by the sinkhole you left in my heart.
I won't allow myself to be the product of all the mistakes that you've made.

This pain, it is a part of me. In this acceptance, I am finally set free.

It gets hard to keep my head above this water, this sinking feeling.
I let you drag me down here, into these dark depths. This time I'll let you sink below.

This time I'll let you sink below.
This time I will not be swallowed.
This time I'll let you sink below.
Drown in your sorrow

I want to thank you for all you put me through.
All the tears, all the sorrow, all the lies you fed
All the nights tormented in my own head
Because of you, I finally see the truth.
