Track Name: Oblivion
Wasting away in a bed that isn't yours.
Waiting to be taken home by the man that made you.
Fear and anger course through your tired bones.
The faces of your loved ones blur.
Their voices echo through your head.

The hands have come to a halt on this broken clock face.
Reality sinks in, and time has sealed your fate.
No longer in bloom, the rose of life has withered.
Your pain will not remain, and your soul will be delivered.

The people we meet will all fade away.
This is just part of life.
The bonds that we have will not mean a thing.
Everything dies in time.
Track Name: Revival
This time I'm letting go.

Trust no one, for they will only bring you down.
Take control, don't fall astray to the words that they say.
This is the last time I'll falter.
I will pick myself up off the ground.
This is the last time that I will lose this battle.

Take a step back, you're coming in too fast.
Seize the moment, and learn to let go of your past.
Remember who you are, and find your way back home.

I've played the victim, it's time to be the victor.
Pushing forward, this time I'm letting go.
This is the last time I will falter.
I will pick myself up off the ground.

Watch them as they fall to the fire.
Watch them as they crumble and fall.
Reach out for what you desire.
Or face the destruction that you ignored.

Take a step back, you're coming in too fast.
Seize the moment, and learn to let go of your past.
Remember who you are, and find your way back home.

This is the last time I'll falter.
I will pick myself up off the ground.
This is the last time that I will lose this battle.
Track Name: Counterfeit
My only hope is that I'll find a way to blind myself, and block out everything.
And it will be impossible to see this world (to see this world) splitting at it's seams.

My untouched mind, holding onto it's faith like a foolish child.
Counterfeit, hopes and dreams.
I'm just a victim, held hostage by this insanity.

But now I see through you and your bullshit lies.
These eyes can see through you and your fucking disguise.

Behind your eyes, a deceitful mind aiming to indoctrinate and map out my life.
You've built these walls around us so we can't see outside this enclosure of what you've taught us.
What you've taught us to be.

I've wasted away my youth, fighting for something that I know deep down in my heart, that I don't stand for (that I don't stand for).
Held down, by these expectations that are placed upon my shoulders to live the perfect life (perfect life).
Track Name: Deconstruct
We broke our own game.
We've found a glitch and it's fucked up this system.
What happened to unity?
What happened to integrity?

You need to face the fact, that you are just like me.
You're not on top of the world, I will not bow at your feet.
You cut and paste, hoping for success in this competition for your fifteen seconds of fame.

I keep my mouth shut.
I know it comes to an end.
I keep my thoughts inside.
Because I know that you won't last in the end.

This hypocrisy, it's killing me.
Success rewarded for stale creativity.

They say when players change, the game remains the same.
I'm not sure it's even worth playing anymore.
All I see is hate and ignorance.
This place is not done yet, man up and fix it.

So take my hand, let's instigate changes to save this creative space before it's too late.
I'm not trying to dictate your actions, but I refuse to stand by and watch them destroy our home.

It's not too late to pick up the pieces.
It's not too late to save this town.
Track Name: Oathkeeper
(I see your reflection staring back at me.
A recollection of what's meant to be.
You are nothing but a ghost that resides in my dreams.
I broke this promise, an oath I swore I'd keep.)

I watched the life leave your eyes, motionless you lay.
I felt a sorrow inside, and you were taken away.
This is how it unfolds, each story comes to an end.
I must accept the fact that I will never see you again.

I should of kept by your side.
Then maybe you would be here with me tonight.
I will never forgive myself for the choices I've made.
There is no going back now, this path has been paved.

I see your reflection staring back at me.
A recollection of what's meant to be.
You are nothing but a ghost that resides in my dreams.
I broke this promise, an oath I swore I'd keep.

(Oh, how I know I've wasted this chance.
The truth is) I couldn't saved you.

The days, they passed and the nights, they grew colder.
I couldn't live with the fact that you would not grow older.
A shell of a life once burning with passion.
Now there in silence, so peaceful, so lifeless.

The image remains of your skin turning pale.
The air in the room, slowly becoming stale.
Regrets and empathy occupy my mind.
I'll never forget the day when your eyes rolled back, white.

I see your reflection staring back at me.
A recollection of what's meant to be.
You are nothing but a ghost that resides in my dreams.
I broke this promise, an oath I swore I'd keep.
