Track Name: The Dreamer
I found myself lying flat on my back
Awaiting something to pull me up
To take me from this stagnant state
I’ve locked myself into
Complacency has drained all my motivation
And I am paralyzed by apprehension

But I must find it in me to lose everything
To sacrifice and change my life
I can’t continue to be this empty shell only seeking comfort
It’s not who I ever wanted to be

But it’s never been so difficult to dream
And it’s never been harder to imagine…
Myself in a position where I can be the man I want to be
If I could roll back the clock, I would have already realized my dreams

Time stands still for no one

I must begin to move forward
I must begin to move forward
I refuse to stand still here any longer

But this thought of failure consumes my everything
Leaving me winded
Choking on the fact that I would remain
So stagnant, complacent
Representing life I don’t…
Even believe in

Now I must risk everything

And on his last night in town, my brother grabbed me by the arm and he pulled me aside
He said with more conviction than I’d ever seen in his eyes

He said…

“Get the fuck out of this town
You don’t belong here
Escape from this place or it’ll become your tomb
You have more to offer than anyone here can give you
Don’t make do with this life you’ve been living these last two years
Chained up by doubt, consumed by your fears
You’re bigger than this. You’re bigger than this.”
Track Name: The Lover
I’ll drink myself to sleep one more night as I revel in memories of
An embrace I can no longer request with frequency or any sort of meaning
It seems that pride has swallowed you whole, but I can’t complain
‘Cause ambition has drove me away
And though you say “myths like love are dead chemicals,”
I’ll hopelessly breathe life to this fable
I won’t burry it

Breathing down her neck I said the word “forever” once
She shot me down and said,
“Words like forever, no! Not for us,”
But her warning has been…
Disregarded in a fashion one might call delusional
But it gives me the strength
To push through the greatest pain I’ve ever known
Known since we’ve learned…

Love is not patient
Love is not kind
But some things
They don’t fade in time
And if to love is to suffer
Then to let you go
Is the only way that I know
To suffer with honor
But I would set pride aside
Just to live in your eyes
And though you say these chemicals are dead
I know they still linger in me

I won’t burry this
No, these chemicals aren’t dead
I could never bury it

And the lurking though of putting my life on hold
Perches itself on my shoulder
Daring me to dismiss all my dreams
And find identity in yours
We both know we would never rest easy
Living as an accessory
But I can’t find peace in separation
Only regret in parting ways

Breathing down her neck I said the word “forever” once
She shot me down and said,
“Words like forever, no! Not for us,”

We grew listening behind closed doors
Just listening, as love died around us
And I’d done anything;
Cried with my mouth shut just to preserve us

Love is not patient
Love is not kind
But some things
They don’t fade in time
And if to love is to suffer
Then to let you go
Is the only way that I know
To suffer with honor
But I would set pride aside
Just to live in your eyes
And though you say these chemicals are dead
I know they still linger in me

I’m cluttered with memories of time that slipped from me
They don’t fade
They don’t dim
They just replay
And never spread thin
But this affliction sends me spiraling
Through a cluster of emotion
I can’t shake
I can’t break
I can barely take
So I’ll hold onto us tight
I won’t bury this.
Track Name: The Hate (featuring Justin Phasavath of Prestige)
You’d be a fool to believe that hatred only exists
In the hearts of the weak, and the wicked
And you’d be a fool to believe that there is anyone incapable of
A disdain so deep
The hate is real

They taught me to do my best to hide my anger
They said “you got some problems kid,”
A slave to depression

But they don’t understand why kids can’t breathe easily today
The loss, the scars, the pain we try to hide, but we can’t seem to shine that bright

And if feels so selfish when the whole world’s caving in
And it feels so selfish when we can’t rise above…

All the things in our lives that make our hearts heavy and cold
Abuse, neglect and abandonment and shame from every tear we’re taught to hide

Let it be your fuel, let it be your reason
To crave such a violent change
Let it be a reminder of everything you promised yourself you would never be

So don’t be ashamed when hate comes for you
Use it for change; hate is a tool

So hold on tight, and don’t let go until you’re satisfied

The hate is real
So hold on tight
Your hate is justified
