Track Name: Wilson
Every party you go, every sip that you take, you're getting further and further away
you're blending into the floor, walked on still you want more, I hope that you hear what I have to say

Every moment that you spend wasted is a moment you're wasting
you seize the trend and binge to fit in but look what your wasting

Every moment that you spend wasted is a moment you've wasted
there's a choice to stay true and be you, but you can never make it

It's not easy alone, and that's something you've known I don't blame for you for your past
but you can't let it go, you won't let shit go, instead you choose to get down with another glass

It's not easy alone, and that's something you've known, this life goes by so fast

but you can't live it up because you're slipping up, give it up and then you can get that chance

Every moment that you spend wasted is a moment you're wasting
you seize the trend and binge to fit in but look what your wasting

Every moment that you spend wasted is a moment you've wasted
there's a choice to stay true and be you, but you can never make it

Time spent is time we will never get back
life's tough, I'm glad I got that I've got my edge, and it will never fade, it will never break

When you blend in you really blend in
and the person I knew isn't easy to see
I've seen the same and pain
that a life spent with a bottle can bring

When you're drowning alone, and its dark and its cold, you can't see a ship in sight
you dimmed your light, pushed off to sea, and drifted further and further away from me
Track Name: No Comfort
My miracle
my every hope
the incredible
light you bring

I'm losing you

I know our time is short
and I won't watch you grow
Soon I'll fade away and I'll have to let you go

They'll call to you, and conceal their lust
they bred filth into what is intimate
their clever lies, may tug you heart
you see they deceive until you're torn apart

The weight I can't bear, thoughts of no one there
no rush to your call, no help through it all

My rage
my discontent
how can I keep my hope when I do not feel it

Where are the men who feel as I do
In a world of cowards who will protect you

What of our sisters our daughters our mothers
what kind of men are we to leave amidst their troubles

Where is my comfort to leave the ones I love
my anger brews knowing she can't walk alone

You Feel it too

When cries for violence come fight for those you love
in distain we unify, it will be enough

I won't always be there to shield you from their jeers
The beauty you become, I wish that I could be there
take rest in knowing that I don't stand alone,
I would be there for you wherever you would go
Track Name: Apart
Your eyes give more
Than my words could express
Your voice is
Spoken gentleness
Although we grew as one
My eyes still search for a rising sun

You teach
When my patience is weak
You speak
Evade my disbelief
But with every step that I take
I continue to make other mistakes

You teach
When my patience is weak
You speak
Evade my disbelief
And for every step you take
I hope there's always a light to guide your way

I know
Some days are harder
Know that
That I'm still there for you
Although for now we are who we are
We are apart

And for the hurt you feel you will be filled
All the weight you wear wont always be there
With loss there's more to gain
You'll feel joy once you've know pain

Even if the day comes when I turn back to dust
If one doesn't give you the respect you deserve
My soul this soul would turn
Heavens I would fall
For you eternity can wait and everything can wait
The clouds would separate if you called my name
Track Name: Glass
I lift my eyes to see
beauty engulfed me in its sea
I listen for its song
I've heard hate and pain for too long

Sing of our rage, but not enough to seek change
content enough to go without resistance
like glass it stabs leaving me without my sight
shards of ugliness tear at my mind

It would be easier to leave than to deal with it

to be swallowed into seas of our ignorance
I grow weary of the ways that we treat each other
the ugliness breeds when we cut our brothers down

Faith and faithless
need to change it
we all beg
for a place to rest our heads
we just beg for a place to rest

I want nothing more than to hear that song
resounding with comfort comfort from the storm
until then towards the ocean I lean
and wait for currents to take me in
Track Name: Keeping Pace
Troubled times may come again
they couldn't make us quit back then
and lies may paralyze but I have found the chance to move

Like trees of leaves on autumn days I manifest a different fate
eyes from here and far away won't watch me drown in seas of hate

Words that lack weight can't hold me down
when storms come I still stick around
disregard what is in our way
as others stall I keep the pace
don't lose your way
but if you fall
I will rise with you


Away from hate I could create
troubled times don't break my conscious state
steeper paths lie ahead an yet there's worth in every step of the way
as others stall I keep the pace

But I'm still moving on and no weight you place can slow me down
no lies or disguise could replicate the friends I've found
And we move on and no weight you place can slow us down
no lies or disguise could replicate the friends that we've found

Despite the trend don't lose your light
thieves would drag you off into the night
traps are set to make you quit press ahead don't fall for it

Keep that mindset until the end
stick close but don't depend
walls will fall but I'll stand through it all
and I would lay down for my friends
I keep my pace with you
Track Name: Ipkiss
Hollow man
Its a shame how easily you fold
match descriptions, and fit inside their mold
can you be content bent, and forget
knowing that you were meant to grow

These masks
cover how you feel
behind violence you hide
allowing the fake to become real

Hide too long and you may forget

that there is life beating in your chest
born to build yet so quick you tear
how did thinking for yourself
become so rare
time to start thinking for yourself think for yourself
we can replace
our fathers mistakes
don't let history repeat itself

So I'll rise and arise on my own, you won't see me till I reach that horizon
Each step I take, every choice I make, reminds me that we decide our fate
weight of the world, will push us down,
we invite it and thrive under the pressure
invite it and thrive under the pressure
we are thriving under the pressure
Track Name: Turning Point
Wait, hold on, compose yourself
They're hoping we slip, they'd love to see us
Choke up, fold up with fear
World before us, our time is here

They sold us lies and emphasized
The bitterness within this chest
A cold machine
yet hope remains in me

Hard fronts crack when weights applied
Closed fists can't seize what's in this life
Greed will rob you of your worth

This flesh was meant for more than earth
the earth
closed minds won't ever lear

We will bring a different way
and we'll sing a different way
Dissatisfied, with compromise
We'll reign a different way

If you're here you're the ones that I defend
This place attracts the discontent

They can't take what matters most
I will remain, forever a ghost
In those eyes they try to pry
Our ideals will never die
they'll never die
