Track Name: Sentiment
I've always been alone but
Suddenly I've grown sick of this place
I've got this fucked up notion
Thinking I'm not the man I'm meant to be
I reiterate the motions 
And catch myself burning bridges most days 

I'm slowly fading
Nothing seems like it should 
Maybe I left too much unsaid the first and last time we met 
I think I found you
Your shadow was sewn 
Into the fabric that covers the twisted floor of this empty room

I'm fighting a feeling that I've lost control
You kept the fever that I dropped last month
I'm fighting a feeling that I won't be alone 

I'm slowly fading
Nothing seems like it should be
Maybe I left too much unsaid the first and last time we met 
I think I found you
Your shadow, sewn 
Into the fabric that covers the twisted floor

Killing myself in a crowded room
An exhibition for the voyeurs to consume 
Killing myself in an empty room
I buried my faith along with you
Track Name: Just Another Ghost
I caught you leaving 
You said you'd be right back 
Spit excuses from your teeth
I watch as they crack
And it aches just to know 
That this home you left won't miss you at all 
Just another ghost to hide behind these walls

I still count the hours slowly ticking down
Come to terms with the fact, my faith is nowhere to be found 

I've been chasing the pain since the night that you first left (Ignorant and restless)
Anxiety has carved a home inside my hollow chest

I fought your reflection
Blood stained the broken glass
The color drained from your eyes
As you turned your withered back 

I still struggle to taste the bitter truth of a broken promise 
If I say that I hate you just know I'm being honest 

I've been chasing the pain since the night that you first left (Ignorant and restless)
Anxiety has carved a home in my hollow chest
I've been chasing the pain since the night that you first left (Ignorant and restless)
Anxiety has carved a home in my hollow chest

Gasping for the dissolution that once filled my lungs, and the hope I abandoned 
Smoke and decay stole it's place or maybe I'm was the one who sold it
