Track Name: The Albatross
You're just a broken record
Echoes in my head
Preventing my sleep these days
So sick of the bullshit, it's deafening
Lying through your teeth and
Cutting your tongue 'till you bleed
Paints a pattern of red
A face I won't forget

I'm just not listening
Nothing can change my ways
This future's set in stone
And you're just dead weight

I saw your silhouette a mile away
Slowly becoming my new enemy
I'll take the life I lead with me to my grave
So bury me with your opinions
Let them rot in my wake

Torment me with this mess
I'll leave you out in the cold
For reasons that I'm only supposed to know
It's such a desolate path
With hopes that substance
Could save your sanity
I won't follow in these footsteps

I'm just not listening
Nothing can change my ways
This future's set in stone
And you're just dead weight
You're just dead weight
That's brought in by the waves

I saw your silhouette a mile away
Slowly becoming my new enemy
I'll take the life I lead with me to my grave
So bury me with your opinions
Let them rot in my wake

How could you get caught up
In this twisted faith
And find a skeleton to replace
What died in me that day
These wolves won't tear at my flesh
I'll make sure of it
The grass looks greener beneath my headstone
So why should I waste my life living like you

I saw your silhouette a mile away
Slowly becoming my new enemy
I'll take the life I lead with me to my grave
So bury me with your opinions
Track Name: Bedridden
I sincerely apologize
For wasting the past four years of your life
It's a fucked up way to say
My stability is crumbling
I was never good at saying goodbye 
Or swaying your mind to believe we're alright 
Maybe it's just the price
Our demons have to pay

I've been spending everyday
Bedridden, no plan of escape
Impressions of your face on my sheets
Are why I find it so hard to leave 
Night drives don't bear a meaning
Like they did before, I can't help feeling weak
And shadows, that crawl across my floor
Reminds me you're not here anymore 

Most nights I fall asleep
To silence and a shudder 
That you were the reason behind
These bloodshot eyes 
It's eating my insides 

I can't help but question it
Every word you spoke 
Wasted opinions 
It's time to grow and shed myself 
Of the skin that you made for me
That day I went and ran away
I reveled in hypocrisy 
Every single promise I broke
Felt like digging my own grave

Most nights I fall asleep
To silence and a shudder 
That you were the reason behind
These bloodshot eyes 
It's eating my insides

Most nights I fall asleep
To silence and a shudder 
That you were the reason behind 
These bloodshot eyes 

A shade of the moment 
You left crept in yesterday 
I swore I blocked out the windows 
To escape my mind and it's hell 
I hid my regrets in a box that read
There's nothing left
Slowing erasing all the lines I know 
I should have kept  

Most nights I fall asleep
To silence and a shudder 
That you were the reason behind 
These bloodshot eyes

Clinging so desperately 
To hoping I'd be wrong 
That you were the reason behind 
These bloodshot eyes
Now I'm dead inside
Track Name: Hollow
Show me a reason
For the hollowness that fills your heart
You swallowed your inocennce 
Excuse for this world to rip you apart 
For every line and whisper 
You break the ones who've needed saving
Why lead a life so selfishly
Soon enough, you'll cave in

You're caving in
Watch your step, mind your tongue 
You're just so incapable 
Of feeling anything at all
Of feeling anything 

We all breathe the same air
So why is there conflict in morals
That break down our barriers 
Let's shed light on the truth
Of people like you, a martyr 
With no wise words left to use

Your perceptions got an ugly face 
Thinking in crooked lies and outdated faiths
It's just the same damn story 
Passed on each generation 
Shallow defines the man you are 
Etched deep into your scars 

Maybe I have too much to say
But in time you'll learn, this world isn't a perfect place 

We all breathe the same air
So why is there conflict in morals
That break down our barriers 
Let's shed light on the truth
Of people like you, a martyr 
With no wise words left to use

You've wasted away
Wasted away, a deteriorated frame
Housing the hate that you've kept under your name
My god, you're all the same 
 
Why can't I just see straight? 
Hands on our throat, it's what you crave
Why can't I just believe? 
I'm bleeding out, but not suffering
Track Name: Erase Your Name
I've lost track of every road
Breathe in hope then separation
A test to see if a fragile mind could take this
And my better judgments been killed 
By sin and intoxication 
But it's all the company I have
So I might as well embrace it 

Slowly tearing out my eyes
So that I can't sleep
When the thought of seeing you
Is the only thing haunting my dreams
Left alone to stare at the ceiling
Silently questioning the lose grip on my sanity and the walls that kept me from breaking 

I've found safety and comfort in hospital beds 
It may be the hum of fluorescent lights
And lingering sense of death  

Brought down like an anchor in your sea
Help me see daylight, just to choke on the reality of it all
I've wasted time, never good enough

There's an absence closing in, you used to easily fill
A crack in my coarse lips where my words to you were once spilled
Vacant nights are new to me
While I'm searching for clarity
A shred of hope left
Maybe I never had a home in the first place

I've found safety and comfort in hospital beds 
It may be the hum of fluorescent lights
And lingering sense of death 

Brought down like an anchor in your sea
Help me see daylight just to choke on the reality of it all
I've wasted time, never good enough 

You think I don't see how you look at him
When you're still wrapped up in my sheets
Always so calm and collected
Lips taste of cigarettes and late night drinks 
And after all I've said and you've done
Shatter the mirror erase your name
I'll spill the ink over this page
And let these words fill my empty grave
And let these words fill my empty grave
