Track Name: Afterthoughts
All good things must come to an end but my voice resides in you, and only when you decide to let it die will I be released from within.

The voices must be louder in my heart than in my head if I am to commit. Can you not feel your body decay? It's giving up on me. I was born with this cancer, I know it's disaster for me. Swallow my anxiety to the pit of me. What's been so controlling? Does it go without knowing? Haven't you heard. Oh god I'm so forgetful, but you always remind me that this life's not about me.

Attachment to this life will only hold you back. My eyes are set forward, but I can never see what's in front of me. I've heard the next place will be everlasting. I'm there when I sleep. That's the place I want to be. Take my remaining breaths away from me. Give me a release from this broken body. You can take everything because you only get back what you give. So tell me, what have you given?

Devour my soul.
The ground devours what you'll never miss. Let the roots take hold. Let the wind carry my soul away.
Tell me what remains. Will my memories fade?
Tell me what remains. Will your memory fade?

The voices must be louder in my heart than in my head if I am to commit. Can you not feel your body decay? It's giving up on me. I was born this cancer, I know it's disaster for me.

Track Name: Let Loose (Feat. Matt of Secondhaven)
I've been trying to find transcendent contentment through these words that have always comforted me. In my effort to break the mold and set myself free I have found nothing. Don't hold still because our time is fleeting. Was there ever a true purpose to my endless breathing? Im searching for strength.

Don't pity the dead, pity the living. Weak willed with no voice to speak. It'll always sound familiar to me.

I'm still trying to set myself free but the world has been so overwhelming, yet I'm still breathing. My thoughts are only temporary. I'll keep on striving with everything that's left inside of me.
With everything that's left inside of me.

Let loose of everything. You can confide in me when the world doesn't leave a crutch to help you stand up.

It's so easy to drown in the negative but I'm positive that there's so much more in store for you. There's no time like the present to escape your mind and leave the stress behind. To let loose of everything that you've ever had.

I'm still trying to set myself free but the world has been so overwhelming, yet I'm still breathing. My thoughts are only temporary. I'll keep on striving with everything that's left inside of me.
With everything that's left inside of me.
Track Name: Chemical Imbalance
Only time will tell they say. How much longer I can endure the pain. This is who I've been the whole time.

Break free of the constant routine. Nothing is fine like you said it would be. If I was a better man would you help me understand the light? I want to find clarity. As I look to the sky I find nothing inside to satisfy. I never asked for you to set me free.

Searching for what made me sane. Years have past, I relapse every time I hear your name.
Pulseless, how could love survive? Bleed me out and let it die. This was never worth your time.

Cast away, cast away
I'll learn to love the pain
I've been missing out on rest lately
Cast away, Cast away
I’ll learn to love the pain
Stuck at the bottom where you left me

Cast away, cast away. I'll learn to love the pain. Back in the mess that I made. There was no one more deserving. Constantly, constantly running through my head. It seems these nights will never end. Where have you been?

No end to the misery. I'll let the tides carry me
You left me with nothing, mental purgatory

I swear I'll learn, I'll learn to love the pain

The highest highs bring the lowest of lows and this is the lowest that its ever been. Only time will tell they say, how much longer I can endure this pain. This is who I've been the whole time.

Cast away, cast away
I’ll learn to love the pain
Track Name: Dismantle
So here I am again. Blank paper to pen, but in the end I'll rip the pages out. Because lately I have found comfort in giving up. It feels like relief after being torn between two separate entities. There's no one left to stitch the seams of living dreams left inside of me. To the ones I told I would never break. I'm sorry, I broke.

[I broke] every promise that I ever made. So please don't look to me for strength. I can't even hold my own head up. And if these past years have taught us anything, it's that I'll be gone in the morning and just as the seasons fade, so will you.

I hear you calling my name. Still I push you away. Abandonment was always my favorite game.

The soil was always my home so bury me and walk away from everything you thought you knew. Those half smiles I could always see through. I'll never forget the statement you made true. That this was all temporary anyways.

The place you love to escape was witnessed on the back of your eyelids. So rest your eyes on the skies as the sun sets because when you wake I'll be gone.

Were these dreams ever my own? Maybe it's just like my father said, I'm just stuck in the wrong perspective. I've got to dismantle my pride and sever my ties from the demons that would always attempt to reside in my mind. You were always inside of my head.

I hear you calling my name

My return holds nothing but a shallow man waiting for someone's hand to pull me out of this pit. But I've tried my hardest to refuse the negative in every word that you say. Still the world, it was determined to consumed me.

The soil was always my home so bury me & walk away from everything you thought you knew and those half smiles I could always see through. I'll never forget the statement you made true. You reminded me of how naïve I can be.

The place you loved to escape was witnessed on the back of your eyelids. So rest your eyes on the skies as the sun sets.

{When you wake up I'll be gone}

I recall my youth, the kind that felt forever until it ended with never again. They called me the runaway kid, the kind that never owned a spine. Prioritizing backwards, I was caught up in the times and took everything for granted.

We are born alone and die alone. Isn't that what's said? Its all I'll ever know.

I never claimed to be an optimist. I never claimed to bring you happiness. I was lost in uncertainty, caught in the void of subconscious apathy.

So now can you see everything that I couldn't express?
Now can you feel everything that I couldn't express?
I was empty
Track Name: Recover
"I am now the most miserable man living. If what I feel were equally distributed to the whole human family, there would not be one cheerful face on the earth. Whether I shall ever be better I can not tell; I awfully forebode I shall not. [To remain as I am is impossible;] I must die or be better, it appears to me."

- A. Lincoln
