Track Name: I Want Out
broken down I've lost my way
violent times are washing over me
all in all we always disagree
and i've found the hell that's been used to pave my way
but all these clouds wash over me

rising up, and i'll find my way
losing all control but not integrity
as this rain washes away
this hell becomes my sanity

and i can't control the ground it quakes beneath my feet
starting to lose control, but not integrity
all of the garbage spilling out of your mouth
your force fed bullshit, and i want out
i want out!

you spin your fucking web and i
i want out.
Track Name: Breaking Free
breaking free of the grips that were holding me down
down beneath a river of shit
as i'm finding my strength to resist
resist the deceiving facades

those days i felt i was drowning
sinking... i'll pull myself
pull myself to the surface

on the edge of the earth i ain't holding my breath
never breaking, i am always straight edge
tighter than deaths grip, i stand tall
this is my ascension

standing tall on the edge
i am never... never giving in
stay true till death

i'm breaking free
i've found my strength
pulling myself to the top
above all the others
i'm breaking free.

i'm breaking free
staying true till the end
true till the...
Track Name: Paper Thin
i always felt like you were wearing thin
your skins like paper and its doing you in
now face your judgement, you lie through your teeth
i feel no sympathy, i smell your defeat
crushing...
down on you, you sold your life and now you're trying to drag me down
with that ship that you lead so long i think it's time for me to cut you loose

your time is tickin' away and all your friends have been led astray
your light is fading and no one can save you
you've left yourself all alone.

i always felt like you were wearing thin
your skins like paper and its doing you in
now face your judgement, you lie through your teeth
i feel no sympathy, i smell your defeat
creeping...
creeping up the walls that surround you as they start to close in
close in on you
losing breath, you choke on your words
your voice will echo through my head no more

your time is tickin' away and all your friends have been led astray
your light is fading and no one can save you
you've left yourself all alone.

you've left yourself alone
choke on your words
choke!

every word
that you say
crashing down
down in flames
and i... i will
walk away
every day you dig your grave there's nothing left to say.....to you!

the truth comes crashing down on you.
Track Name: The Error
detached from this world, always searching for substance
this constant reminder that i'm always alone
namelessly drifting, an unknown.
always standing alone, always standing alone!

passerby's glancing down at the feet
never wanting to get to know, who i am underneath
i'm just a vessel, meant to travel, this land all unknown
constantly feeling helpless and alone

we're detached from this world, always searching for substance
this constant reminder that i'm always alone
namelessly drifting, an unknown.
always standing alone, always standing alone!

back and forth
i pace these streets
yearning for the day
when they stand and scream my name

some day i'll correct my mistakes
and become one with the world.
they'll stand and scream my name
once just a shadow that always crossed their paths
now the face that they cannot forget
as they stand and scream my name

we're detached from this world, always searching for substance
this constant reminder that i'm always alone
namelessly drifting, an unknown.
always standing alone, always standing alone!

back and forth
i pace the streets
once just a shadow
now they stand and scream my name

i am the error

we're detached from this world, always searching for substance
this constant reminder that i'm always alone
namelessly drifting, an unknown.
and always standing alone
i'm always... and forever... standing alone!
Track Name: Rejected Memories
and can you push away from this?
can you feel yourself struggling through the days?
the constant tension of the pulling strings

we're here today, and gone today - nothing ever seems to stay
these streets, runnin' red - with all the lies you spread
yesterday, a memory... a fading memory

pulling me under, a weight that constantly seems to linger
dead weight around my neck and I cannot break free

we're here today, and gone today - nothing ever seems to stay
these streets, runnin' red - filling a cluttered head
yesterday, a memory... a faded memory

yesterday's a faded memory!

you gotta push away from this, and separate yourself from the memories
that haunt you each and every day

and find it within yourself to turn and walk away
rejecting the poisons
and i feel it closing in on me, a quick striking disease
i'll just push this away.
i gotta push, i gotta push... PUSH THIS AWAY!
