Track Name: Fairweather Friends
You wrap yourself in these empty shades of grey
You can't lose yourself inside of anything
Honey I know, this isn't what you expected
-But this is what you were given.
So make the best of it while you can.
We are but sinners, we're no saints
While we're taking another fall from grace
So put another on your list- we're burnouts and ignorant
Cause it's not easy to walk away from everything
You know you should do, while you're following the dream chosen for you.
Is it so difficult? You're trying not to watch your back
Wondering what everyone thinks when you can't tell from the way they act
Stuck inside my own head
While I'm trying to open and honest with everyone
But I know that it's hopeless
Cause I keep hearing voices; whispers of things they've said
Who knows why we're alive, cause we're just fighting to get by
There's gotta be more to this life then fighting this night after night.
We are but sinners, we're no saints
While we're taking another fall from grace
So put another on your list- we're burnouts and ignorant
Cause it's not easy to walk away from everything
You know you should do, while you're following the dream chosen for you.
Is it so difficult? You're trying to watch your back
Wondering what everyone thinks when you can't tell from the way they act.
Track Name: A Final Letter (Feat. Kurt Travis)
It's empty in these hallways, it's overwhelming me
To find myself in this place, where I don't wanna be-
If I could find the courage to pack my bags, and just get the fuck out
I'd have done it by now but I'm too terrified of how things will work out
"It never ends, is this the way it is? Why do I find myself so complacent?
When I know that I hate all of this, I just wanna feel alright again"
So take a breath now, I need to step out
I've fought so long to get out of this mess now
Even if I put myself here, I've gotta get out. Get out.
All that's dark it surrounds me here, when I'm out and alone with my own thoughts
Where have my brothers and sisters been? Cause I fear that I'm losing them
and I'm losing it, with every fading second
Every single mistake I wish I could correct it
But I keep quiet, but I don't keep calm in all of this
I'm at the end of my rope trying to hold my grip
(Kurt Travis):
Everything is beautiful, so nothing else hurts
Everything is beautiful, so nothing can hurt.
I never know who I should trust
I never know who I should trust.
Track Name: Last Of Lions
I'm not home...
I'm in this state again, I'm in another place where I don't wanna be
The world keeps on spinning, I'll try to make the difference and make you listen-
But it won't seem to end. I need to get control over these things.
My mind, it's hard to get it straight when all I do is overthink everything
You get under my skin and enter into my veins
and I let myself get carried away-
Any words that could make you feel safe.

I'm not home.

You throw away everything that hasn't died yet
Have you managed to go and maintain your pride yet?
Do you feel better about yourself? Now that you have these stories to tell now?
I know one day, I'll burn away. Deep inside my brain I'll still feel these awful things
Cause all these emotions swell and swell, like water it crashes over me, I'm overwhelmed.
I was born in a world with these anxieties that push and pull, everyone away from me
It won't stop! It won't stop!
What can I do just to put it all away?
Put it all in the past, force your face from my head
I've felt the burden of holding to whatever's left
For years and years I've let this go! But I'll let you die..I'll say goodbye.

I wanna see the oceans
I wanna sail every sea
I wanna move the mountains
The one's that tower over me.
I wanna be there to hold you
When you're cold and alone
I wanna be there with you
Until we both get home...

But I'm not home.
Track Name: Faith (Produced at the Wolves Den)
If you still knew how to dream, I don't believe you would.
You've lost your chance to believe, I think you've lost your faith
and walking down paths like these, you can lose your way-
So you can't be blamed for everything!
But you can be afraid.
Set it off, let it go- because you know what you've become.
So the vision's set, so let it go.
It's all been done before, it's all been done before.
So the vision's set, so let it go.
You've lost your Faith, you've lost your way
So take it all back, and throw your troubles away
You've lost your faith, you've lost your way!
So take it all back, take it all back, take it all back from me.
So the vision's set, so let it go.
It's all been done before, it's all been done before.
So the vision's set, so let it go.
