Track Name: Discord
I’m more bitter now than I have ever been
Yet it means absolutely nothing at all
And with the loss of my last thread of innocence
I see that life isn’t what I thought it would be

I’m stuck here in a constant state of hating myself
Through these months and years
I’ve watched people around me deteriorate
Slowly falling apart

I’m losing my balance

I don’t have much faith
But I had faith in this
Track Name: Nothing Shows
I’ll wander alone under these unending streetlights
And dwell on the mistakes that I’ve made
And I’ll wonder about my future
Where I’m supposed to be and where I’ll end up
The weight of my thoughts, yeah they’d sink a weaker man

And I’ll force myself to feel just about anything
Because nothing’s felt real in a long time

Days and nights pass on, so devoid of meaning
As my sense of longing slowly starts to fade
I will wonder, here in this disturbing clarity
If I’m growing older or just more defeated

And I’ll force myself to feel just about anything
Because nothing’s felt real in a long time

Despite my fears I will stand right here and soak it all in
The past I’ve had, this life I’ve lived
Track Name: Still In Time
We just wade through consciousness in hopes that we can re-live a feeling
A sense of comfort that our lives aren’t just passing by under our feet

(Over time this life has grown pale)

Over time this life has grown pale and dull in front of me
And I’m fighting a daily battle that I know that I can’t win

We’re all just stuck here clinging to fleeting moments
And I know that mine are stuck in the past

I can hardly remember a time when my smile meant anything more than a social expectation
And I make every effort to keep my composure as numb as I’ve become

I’m stuck here longing in desperation for something, for anything
There used to be passion in this voice but now it barely resonates

We’re all just stuck here clinging to fleeting moments
And I know that mine are stuck in the past

And I’ll just waste my life trying to re-live something
That meant so much to me, that made me feel alive

I’ve grown content with feeling hollow, and I know I’m not alone
I’ve embraced this is who I am, and I’ll find solace in being honest
In being honest, honest with myself
Track Name: Hollows
Fan blades spin ceaselessly
Forming circles; patterns over me
As I lay beneath in silence
In this precious solitude
But I can’t rest my racing mind
With demons haunting my sleep
And it all looms down over me

I rest my mind
And fade away
As I escape into my head
And long to be a world away
A world away

Is this anything at all? I ponder in these quiet moments
When I’m longing for some kind of rest
And my bed grows more comfortable than I’ve come to believe
I’m drifting in and out hour after hour

I rest my mind
And fade away
As I escape into my head
And long to be a world away
A world away

It looms down over me
A burden that I alone will bear

This is where I’ll be when two worlds collide
This is where I’ll be, endlessly, endlessly

It’s hopeless for me when two worlds collide, for me, for me, for me
