Lyrics

1. YOU'LL BURN


I will gladly bite the hand that feeds
Without a compromise
You drew the line at what was yours
And what's not mine
A snake sucking at the heart of this
More guilty than you'd like to admit

Rotting on the inside
Dividing myself in two
I saw the devil with my own eyes
And he fit the shape of you
A fucking coward
With a tongue to tell a thousand lies
Cover your red hands
But you can't hide your poisoned mind

Say what you want
I've held these words for long
You're the bottom feeder
Someone that I'll never need here
Say what you want
Taken for granted all I've done
Infested by the thought
That you can never be wrong

I'll never trust anything
that you think that I might want
You are the scum and we're the hearts you dwell on

So sick so sick
Of trying to prove myself for worth
When you take what I deserve
So quick so quick
To point the blame then turn and run
You'll burn for all that you've done

Torn the hopes of everyone I love
and now it's your turn
You can get fucked

Say what you want
I've held these words for long
You're the bottom feeder
Someone that I'll never need here

I'll never trust anything
that you think that I might want
You are the scum and we're the hearts you dwell on

So sick so sick
Of trying to prove myself for worth
When you take what I deserve
So quick so quick
To point the blame then turn and run
You'll burn for all that you've done
With a tongue to tell a thousand lies

I will gladly bite the hand that feeds
when it doesn't feed enough
Cover your red
You're fucking guilty scum




2. A FEAST FOR CROWS


What doesn't kill me
Feels more like a noose around my neck
I've overcome the fear of death
Hung my hopes with the same rope
That will lead me to my end

Hollow now without a sense of regret
Forgive but never fucking forget
Choices that we make define our shallow graves
Is this life worth the sacrifices made along the way?

Cut ties with the ghosts I've left behind
Goodbye my empty silhouette
Cut ties with the ghosts I've left behind
Goodbye a past that I regret

Forgive but never forget
Cut ties with the ghosts I've left behind
Goodbye my empty silhouette
Forgive but never forget
Cut ties with the ghosts I've left behind
Goodbye a past that I regret

I've overcome the fear of death
Hung my hopes with the same rope
That will lead me to my grave
Hung my hopes with the same rope
The past doesn't deserve to be saved

What doesn't kill me starts to separate
Break me apart piece by piece
What doesn't kill me starts to separate
Everything that I'll ever need

Hollow now without a sense of regret
Forgive but never fucking forget
Choices that we make define our shallow graves
Is this life worth the sacrifices made along the way?

Forgive but never forget
Cut ties with the ghosts I've left behind
Goodbye my empty silhouette
Forgive but never forget
Cut ties with the ghosts I've left behind
Goodbye a past that I regret

Forgive but never fucking forget




3. THE COMMON MISCONCEPTION

Realized there's nothing left but apathy
Can't seem to manufacture feelings the way you do so easily
Tired from trudging through
The dark in hopes of brighter days
Sick of swallowing everything that I've wanted to say

It's hard to stomach the thought
of all the things you're told
When growing up means growing old
Becoming jaded from the life you lead
The common misconception that we're existing

Why do we cling to a voice that's always silent?
Too busy searching for the love we will never get
Why do we cling to a life that we'll never know?
Too busy searching for a better direction to go

Until it all fades away

Live and learn
As I move on that my heart gets colder
and the distant tides have turned
As I move forward the world gets colder

Live and Learn
As I go on that my heart gets colder
and the distant tides have turned
As I move forward the world gets colder
Until it all fades away

Bring this cold heart back to life

It's hard to stomach the thought
of all the things you're told
Can't fit the shape
Can't fit the mold
Becoming jaded from the life you lead
The common misconception that we're existing

Why do we cling to a hand that never reaches back for us?
Too busy searching for a meaning in what we've lost
Why do we cling to the life that we'll never know?
Too busy searching for a better direction to go

Until it all fades away

Live and learn
As I move on that my heart gets colder
and the distant tides have turned
As I move forward the world gets colder

Live and Learn
As I go on that my heart gets colder
and the distant tides have turned
As I move forward the world gets colder
Until it all fades away




4. I SOLEMNLY SWEAR


There is no truth in life
Only in death can you find that there is no peace
And what it means to be alive

There is no truth that will set you free
Swallow your tongue before you try to say what's best for me

You don't know
Never walked a day in my shoes
And I'll be damned if I turn out like you

Malicious the way you twist your words
This vicious cycle that I'm in feels more like a curse
When will enough be enough
The world's been dead to me for too long

So sing me a sad song
and tell me that I'll never belong
Maybe you're right
Maybe I'm all wrong
But the world's been dead to me for too long

Sad songs
You and me we'll never belong
Maybe you're right
Maybe I'm all wrong
But the world's been dead to me for too long

You don't really know what's best for me
Save it for someone else
So before you open your mouth
Know I don't need your help
What I really need is for you to go fuck yourself

So tell me
Does it give you that sour taste that you hate?
There'll be no peace between you and me
Does it give you that sour taste that you hate?
There'll be no peace

So sing me a sad song
and tell me that I'll never belong
Maybe you're right
Maybe I'm all wrong
But the world's been dead to me for too long

Sad songs
You and me we'll never belong
Maybe you're right
Maybe I'm all wrong
But the world's been dead to me for too long

Does it give you that sour taste that you hate?
To know I'll go my own way
Does it give you that sour taste that you hate?
So sing me a sad song




5. DEATHMARKS


Born too numb
Patience is wearing thin
Consumed by struggle
Overwhelmed with angst
Stuck in my bitter skin

Born too numb
When all is said and done
You have to learn to walk
Before you ever try to run

Fuck this life
That only
Take
Take
Takes from me
I will stand firm on my own two feet

Dead inside
Time only
Break
Break
Breaks me down
Don't know what more you could expect from me

Walking in the shadows of the night
A clearer conscience
Everyday becomes a different fight
Walking in the shadows of the night
Hard to see what's in front me
When everything's in black and white
Where do we draw the line?

An eye for an eye
Ends up making the whole world go blind
and the sins that we selfishly hide
Have left our pitiful lives in decline
Where do we draw the line?

An eye for an eye
Ends up making the whole world go blind
and the sins that we selfishly hide
Have left our pitiful lives in decline
Where do we draw the line?

Fuck this life
That only
Take
Take
Takes from me
I will stand firm on my own two feet

Dead inside
Time only
Break
Break
Breaks me down
Don't know what more you could expect from me

Walking in the shadows of the night
A clearer conscience
Everyday becomes a different fight
Walking in the shadows of the night
Hard to see what's in front me
When everything's in black and white
Where do we draw the line?

An eye for an eye
Ends up making the whole world go blind
and the sins that we selfishly hide
Have left our pitiful lives in decline
Where do we draw the line?

An eye for an eye
Ends up making the whole world go blind
and the sins that we selfishly hide
Have left our pitiful lives in decline
Where do we draw the line




6. THE BLACKOUT


You said this time would be the last
Around in circles we go again
Not holding back the way I used to
A death in me is a death in you

You said this time would be the last
Around in circles can't catch my breath
When will you see my point of view?
A death in me is a death in you

When we collide
You'll know what's on my mind
I hope this cuts you deep
And you lose sleep at night
I died inside
The day you took away what was mine.

Visions of a world without the sun
This is a blackout
Where all the ends come undone
We tried to follow paths you made
You said this time would be the last
It never changed

Visions of a world without love
This is a blackout
Where all the ends come undone
We tried to follow paths you made
Misled, you're now the enemy.

You said this time would be the last
Around in circles we go again
Not holding back the way I used to
A death in me is a death in you

You said this time would be the last
Around in circles can't catch my breath
When will you see my point of view?
A death in me is a death in you

A death in me is a death in you
A death in me is a death in you

Visions of a world without love
This is a blackout
Where all the ends come undone
We tried to follow paths you made
Misled, you're now the enemy.

You are everything I despise
Your life is such a fucking lie!

You said this time would be the last
Around in circles we go again
Not holding back the way I used to
A death in me is a death in you

You said this time would be the last
Around in circles can't catch my breath
When will you see my point of view?
A death in me is a death in you

Visions of a world without the sun (a death in me is a death in you)
This is a blackout where all the ends come undone (a death in me is a death in you)

Visions of a world without love
(A death in me is a death in you)
This is a blackout where all the ends come undone
(A death in me is a death in you)




7. IN DREAMS


Waste away another night
Can't leave this bed I've made
Given up on life

God only knows I've tried
To be better
There's nothing left inside

I got so lost along the way
Could never find the words to say
Waited for the dark to change in me
Watched as the seasons faded away

It's easier to just let go
Rather than dwell on all I used to know

Come wake me up
I've been asleep for too long
In a life that's not my own
Lost myself
So cold

Come wake me up
I've been asleep for too long
Never wanted to feel alone
Lost myself
Slow to love
So cold

Can't leave this bed I made
Given up on life

God only knows I've tried
To be better
There's nothing left inside

I got so lost along the way
Counted down all of the days
Waited for signs from a distant place
Watched as the seasons faded away

It's easier to just let go
Rather than dwell on all I used to know

Come wake me up
I've been asleep for too long
In a life that's not my own
Lost myself
So cold

Come wake me up
I've been asleep for too long
Never wanted to feel alone
Lost myself
Slow to love
So cold

Through each and every year
You destroy who you are
When you try to disappear
Take me back to the start
Mend all the pieces that fell apart

We watch the world turn
But never stop to think about
Who we are
Take me back to the start
Mend all the pieces that fell apart

I've been asleep for too long
In a life that's not my own
Never wanted to feel alone

Come wake me up
I've been asleep for too long
In a life that's not my own
Lost myself
So cold

Come wake me up
I've been asleep for too long
Never wanted to feel alone
Lost myself
Slow to love
So cold




8. INTO THE GROUND (FT. SHANE TOLD OF SILVERSTEIN)

Into the ground
Got used to watching every year go by
With thoughts diluted I stood at the end
While my days turned into nights

Reliving everything
Every fucking memory
Desperate to feel to get back the time that
I've been missing

Where do you go
When moments you embrace become hollow
What will it even be worth
When we sell our souls to live on this earth
Tried to sleep but found comfort in my lack of dreams
We hesitate to let go
Afraid of what we might see

Give me back what fills the void when my minds at the edge
Never thought it'd feel this way
Give me back what these moments all used to mean
Before life got the best of me

Theres still no sign of life here
My demons sing me to sleep in fear
That the dark has left me for dead
To die alone in the place I called my home

Too young to be this fucked up

So where do you go
When moments that you embrace become hollow
Find your way when you get lost
And there's no one there to guide you
Tried to sleep but found comfort in my lack of dreams
We hesitate to let go
Afraid of what we might see

Give me back what fills the void when my minds at the edge
Never thought it'd feel this way
Give me back what these moments all used to mean
Before life got the best of me

Got used to watching every year go by
With thoughts diluted I stood at the end
While my days turned into nights

Reliving everything
Every fucking memory
Desperate to feel to get back the time
That I've been missing

Give me back
Reliving everything
Give me back
Every fucking memory
Give me back
Desperate to fell to get back
Give me back
The things I know belong to me




9. SERPENT HERDERS


Eyes of hell
Slithering skin
Demons at my doorstep
Won't you let them in

Serpent herder
Wandering souls
Through the fields they dance
In the fires below

Won't you let them in




10. NOTHING BUT BLOOD


Nothing but blood
Can change what you have done
I've bled myself enough for you
The holy one

The dark swallowed the day
I watched the sun burn out
Heard the devil praise my name

Empty from the start
Head to the ground
Blackened my heart

There will never be a white light to save me
Despite the bullshit you force fed me to believe
No more sympathy
For the fucks that can't stand up for what they think

Close my eyes so i can feel alone
It helps to see the intent of a world I've outgrown

My lack of faith showed me that this place is no longer a sanctuary
The place you call out to the sky above
Sanctuary
The place you go to feel a false fucking love

Why do we fear
What we're meant to be now
The lies they sold us
Why do we hide
When we're meant to be free
Somehow we bought what they told us

We're the thorn in your side
Cast the shadow of doubt right out now
We're the thorn in your side
And that crown you wear is rusting out now

The dark swallowed the day
I watched every color fade
into a hue of grey
I heard the devil telling me not to let go
Begging for me to leave this sanctuary

The place you call out to the sky above
Sanctuary
The place you go to feel a false fucking love

Why do we fear
What we're meant to be now
The lies they sold us
Why do we hide
When we're meant to be free
Somehow we bought what they told us

We're the thorn in your side
Cast the shadow of doubt right out now
We're the thorn in your side
And that crown you wear is rusting out now

We're the thorn in your side
There's comfort in a darker sky
We're the thorn in your side
Not letting go until I know why you were sent to die
We're the thorn in your side

Nothing but blood
Can change what you have done
I've bled myself enough for you
The holy one




11. LORD OF BONES
 (FT. AHREN STRINGER OF THE AMITY AFFLICATION)

Buried my skeletons inside the darkest part of my thoughts
Cut out the bones and left a space for the light to shine on
Stitched up the seams when I felt overgrown
Cut out the bones that made it hard for me to stand on my own

I carry my mistakes and never let them define me
I will walk alone but I won't follow blindly

Do you dream our lives could be so different
From this hell we live in
Now it seems
This life has killed the dream that I've dreamed
I never meant to leave you all behind
But nothing good lasts forever
I never meant to leave you in the past
But nothing good will ever last

Skeletons became the only thing that I could trust
Cut out the bones and left a space for collecting dust
Stitched up the seems finally let go
Cut out the bones when I felt fucking alone

Remove whats left in my chest
In every good life there is an image of death

I carry my mistakes and never let them define me
I will walk alone but I won't follow blindly

Do you dream our lives could be so different
From this hell we live in
Now it seems
This life has killed the dream that I've dreamed
I never meant to leave you all behind
But nothing good lasts forever
I never meant to leave you in the past
But nothing good will ever last

Remove whats left in my chest
In every good life there is an image of death




12. MY OWN PERSONAL HELL

Detach myself
Through my eyes I see the world
My own personal hell
Is this all in my head?
These demons know me so well

How do you drown out the voices when you're all alone?
That pry at the walls you've built
Inside your mind so long ago
How do you drown out the voices when you're all alone?
They pry at the walls inside your mind and leave you nowhere to go

There is nothing worth saving
Marked for death
We all die alone when we breathe our last breath

There is nothing worth saving
Marked for death
Unchanged
There's no cure for the pain

I've fallen out of love with the world
We want what we don't need
We fear what we can't see
I've fallen out of love with the world
There's no cure for the pain
A heart that can't be changed

Detach myself
Through my eyes I see the world
My own personal hell
Is this all in my head?
These demons know me so well

How do you drown out the voices when you're all alone?
That pry at the walls you've built inside your mind so long ago
How do you drown out the voices when you're all alone?
They pry at the walls inside your mind and leave you nowhere to go

I've fallen out of love with the world
We want what we don't need
We fear what we can't see
I've fallen out of love with the world
There's no cure for the pain
A heart that can't be changed

There is nothing worth saving
Marked for death
