Track Name: Revival
I can’t change the road I walk
Cause this is where I’m meant to be
External acceptance
Is something I could never seek
I won’t surrender what I’ve worked so hard to achieve
One day I’ll be nothing, but words inside an obituary
I’d be lying if I told you
This was a perfect path to take
But I know, that sacrifice will be worth the price
I can’t promise financial success
But I’ll promise no regrets
When my frail lungs take in the air of my dying breath
How is it frowned upon?
Pursuing my aspirations
You are fucking dead
Long before your heart beat stops
I can’t change the road I walk
Cause this is where I’m meant to be
External acceptance
Is something I could never seek
I won’t surrender what I’ve worked so hard to achieve
One day I’ll be nothing, but words inside an obituary
There’s something special in the air
When graced by the note of song
It sits and lingers, it feels like hope
Without it I’d be hanging from a rope
Dig the barrel into my fucking skull
I swear I’d feel nothing
How is it frowned upon?
Pursuing my aspirations
You are fucking dead
Long before your heart beat stops
I’m running out of time and it’s all or nothing
Closed minds will never understand
Track Name: Realist
I pretend that the words aren’t trapped within my thoughts
But to be truthful, they’re slowly ripping me apart
Been told I’m depressed, called fucking hopeless, and all the rest
I say I’m not a pessimist, but a realist
But that’s a lie I tell myself, when I drown in negligence
To briefly become a person that I don’t resent
Letting every dawn just burn away
I’m seeing weeks as numbers
Instead of opportunities to change
This didn’t happen overnight
Yet you expect me to change in a day
Like it’s so easy to part from your ways
This isn’t a conscious decision
It’s something that’s hard to fight
Until you walk in my shoes you won’t understand
Don’t say a word until through my eyes you see
The pain, the stress, the difficulty
The strain my own thoughts put on me
I’ve accepted that I am the only one to blame
I’m done with excuses, I’m done with the bullshit
I’m done with my own flawed reasoning
Constantly searching
For reasons to be miserable
Living in fear and trepidation
Waiting for my world to crumble
Tearing apart what I wish to achieve
Living like this, makes goals forever just stay dreams
I don’t want your sympathy
I just want some damn consistency
Track Name: Tunisia
Your indoctrination
Is fucking disgusting
Your religion preaches peace and well-being
And you defy your own god
Been brainwashed from day one
And you’re ingrained with one purpose
A distorted view of ancient beliefs
Inflicted on Innocents
A once tranquil beach
Now haunted with blood-stained sand
And the screams forever echo off the waves
38 people gone
Oh
No they aren’t just targets
They are people with loved ones and hopes and dreams
They’re not just numbers and casualties
They’re human beings
Your senseless barbarism killed mothers and fathers friends sons and daughters
Was it worth it to bring it to this?
Martyrdom for a god that doesn't even exist.
Track Name: Downpour
These years have only felt a few months long
Even through the painful dry spells
When I was just running in place
All progress has felt so foreign
And regression too familiar
Too prideful yet ashamed to learn from mistakes
I let the things I love slip right through the cracks
I shut my loved ones out, I tore my world down
If I lived these days again
Would I suffer from my faults?
Or by chance could I overcome
These stubborn fears
I still pray for the rain to pour, harder than ever before
Even though I know it washes the dirt from my weathered face, but not my past
Come clouds, come gray skies
Give me downpour, wash me away
I’m in a drought and I’d rather drown
I long for inundation
I’m trapped in an absence of substance
They tell me “think about the future”
But I’m just digging my own grave
Have you ever felt so fucking helpless
I know I cannot change
They tell me “think about the future”
But I’m just digging my own grave
See at this point any effort is worthless
I can’t change
I’ve struggled to accept this realization
That I’ve spent my whole life reminiscing
On the brighter days, from which I used to run
But when I finally cherish the moments, they’re already gone
Track Name: Burdened
With every single minute
The distance between us grows
While we both put on an act
Every single difference shows
There is a canyon between us
Every time I cross, you bring a flood
Then blame me, cause I can’t overcome the current
Just leave me alone for once
You’re nothing but a burden, holding me back
You are tearing holes in the sails, when I need all the wind I can get
I promised I would stay the same
And to this day I think I’ve stayed true
But the question that eats away at me
Is what about all of you?
They may have strength in numbers
But they can’t stand up, for anything
Everything I believe in
Won’t be stricken down
Take my life
Before you take what I hold inside
I’d rather be dead
Than put their shit in my head
Just leave me alone for once
You’re nothing but a burden, holding me back
You are tearing holes in the sails, when I need all the wind I can get
I promised I would stay the same
And to this day I think I’ve stayed true
But the question that eats away at me
Is what about all of you?
Leave me be
I know who I am, and I’ll fight off the change
Til the light, of my very last day
If two years ago, you looked at yourself now
Would you be proud?
Look me in the eyes
Say it with conviction
