Verse1: I never told you you were all that got me through. The best part of any day. The light that shown my way. I wish I'd told you all the things I'd always meant to say. Maybe then I'd have the time that you just stole away. I miss the color of your eyes. The way they wrinkled when you smiled. I miss the way your hand fit over mine. I miss the way your simplest words could clear the stormy skies. All things I should've said before the day you died. Verse 2: While you sat there bleeding, letting life escape your veins, while you sat there dreaming of all your freedom from all this pain. You left your shadow here to kill all you left behind. You left your shadow here as a funeral for your lie.

V1: No one buys your stories. No one follows you around the bend. The selfish path you chose to take means you'll walk alone until the end. I lead you other ways. Put the answers in front of your face. Watched you run away in misery just to wallow in your mistakes. Release the monsters in your head. Repeat the message that he sends. Chorus: I'll justify your reasons why I'll back your story Turns out my blood is getting cold But your victim card is old. Just take your many reasons to cry and just keep on moving. Lay down in front of me to die and I'll kick your body cold. v2: No one can take your glory. Play the victim as long as you can Vanity can feed your attention greed, so spin your stories Believe I'm the one that's in control Leave me, the circle is getting old

v1: Alone in thought in choking dark afraid the light might make me look around. To see your face, an empty space was once the place where everything was found. chorus: I've been running far too long been pushed too many times. I've been battered, broken, lost in finding remnants of my life. But the dark won't hide you now. I'll stop and stand my ground. You're nothing, just try and kill me now. v2. The way you've been just torturing to make me scream I know now, I've realized that you don't get to win. Was a fool to let you think you'd met a weak willed pet. I'm broken but still standing you haven't killed me yet. br. You told me I couldn't fight it... so I did. You told me I'd lose this battle... so I decided to win. Now look what you've become An empty sign for all that's wrong. Now look what I've become the piece of you that never did belong.

I'll play inside this body the part of the person you want me to be Just suffocate who I want to be Just watch me wither, bleed and scream Just leave me alone. I'll die quietly. Just please be moving onto your next unsuspecting body. You mean nothing at all to me You forget that you'll get what you give I'll get you before you kill me I'll watch you wither, bleed and scream

v1: The torture in your smiling eyes You drag me through the mud, then you tell me that you love me Your sick desire for my blood, your fancy words that cut all because I "never tried". There's always fear in the way you look tonight There's beauty in the pointless tears you cry I know you live to scream the way you live to breathe so you can tear out all my life Chorus: An enemy would have let me die. Your love to hate keeps me alive. I'm way past the lies. If you can't see that I hate you, you must be blind. You walk on next to me hiding the man beneath that's tried to kill me all this time. I'm too tired to try You need to stand up and end me Just stand up and kill me and pick my bones dry v2: The clever way you lay the blame to make me feel your shame then you tell me you forgive me The only way you'll play is if you win the game and drive me insane There's always more in the words you choose to wield. The jagged slice through the scabs that never healed. And so I go to a darker place, find a cozy spot inside my cage. And swallow all my rage. br. I'll scream the way you think I should. I'll deal with all your trials. I'll be the selfless little doll. that you can use to hide. I'll force the laughter and the smile. Pretend that all is fine. I'll be the selfless little doll. So you can feel alive.

Thrive 02:55
v1: Such a filthy place meant to thrive to show us how easy it is to die such a clever little lie, that we might be alright such a clever little lie, deludes our selfish little minds Chorus: And yet we try to see the light in lies. And bide our time begging for meaning that we'll never, ever find. And yet we thrive and in the darkest places without our eyes. We stay alive. We've learned to see and yet we stay blind. v2: There's so much beauty here that was meant to die to show us that dark defines the light such a clever little lie, that goodness always dies such a clever little lie, we're born from dark and yet we try br. Though they are blind your eyes don't ever ignore the lies you see your way through, you try don't just drown in lies strong is never blind

Another Day 02:59
Hello reality, we were never friends and yet we meet again so you can take me to my end another fatality to lost amends to breaking promises to the strength that fled Another day inside my head trapped in this game I play to see if I can end up dead another day to lose my way in this labyrinth of a life where ever turn is a dead end chorus: I'll wash away all of this unending pain in selfish blood again But there's a way, a light, a path to take that ends in finding that forgotten strength to see another day v2: Endless reminders of what I've done I've lost my way a while burned bridges only to myself I've left behind those that tried to help to move into this vacant life so I can suffer to myself I never stopped to try. Just let my pain call the shots again Got in my own way, I'll never be ok. I thought I'd say goodbye, Never let you see me cry, and you'd miss me in the end. I'm not ok.
