Track Name: Blind
I never wanted more than to be the man I saw in the mirror, but that reflection was never my own. As transparent as a ghost, forced to find my own way. Blurring the lines between giving in and giving up. I never wanted more than to be the man I saw in the mirror, but that reflection was never my own. And I don't know where I stand or what I stand for anymore. Have we forgotten what holds us together? Have we forgotten the blood in our veins? They say that blood is thicker than water. Well then we all drown the same.
Track Name: Hindsight
"How long have I struggled with this? Searching for that spark. Searching for meaning in anything. Show me what it's like to feel alive. I'll never feel alive. Breathe life into my veins. I feel so stagnant. Fill my grave with every empty promise I've ever made and bury me under the weight. How long have I struggled with this? Searching for that spark. Searching for meaning in anything. Show me what it's like to feel alive. I'll never feel alive. Emptiness is all I know. Self inflicted misery is more a part of me than my own heartbeat. I will never be free of this."
Track Name: Mirrors
How could one look mean so much to me? How could you leave me without a chance to breath?
Is it fair that to you I am no one, when you are my everything?
I'm fucking sick of looking in the mirror and hating all that stares back at me.
I've hated my life, and myself, for so long that I know this is all I'll ever amount to be.
I'm tired of being a failure, I'm so fucking tired of everything.
Cause life's holding me down, despite my best efforts, it seems that I'm destined to sink.
I know you can't hear me; but at least it gives me peace.
Try give me one more reason why not to die in my sleep.

Here lies the end of my road, and I hope it marks the end of my struggles.
The one thought that keeps plaguing my mind; will I still hold your heart tomorrow?
I know isomer deserve a moment of your time, but just your smile alone makes me want to stay alive.
I'm letting go of these tainted mirrors, you've opened me to light.
Lifted me from the waters, filled my lungs with new life.
Walked me down and unmarked road, no longer yearning to die.
Track Name: Downpour
Has it been two years that I've felt this way? Two years of heartache, two years of constant pain.
When you feel empty time seems to stand still; your home and your family replaced for a pill.
A self conscious road, leading you away, from everywhere you swore you'd always be.
I never asked for all this wait, so please let this be parted from me.
I've grown used to disappointment, being a failure is all I know.
I'm used to being let down, I'm used to letting go.
Everything I loved has fell apart. All of our treasured memories inside of y heart.
And what if I can't sing loud enough?
What if my words don't hit their mark?
