Track Name: The Not So Great Escape
Am I the last one standing?
But I feel so useless
I’ve got my hands to hold my head in
I’ve got my hands to tear your heart in two

What’s happened?
What’s happening?
I’m in this world that’s not familiar
It’s haunting
Oh so sickening
Is this what’s grown inside?

But if we pull together
We’ll make sure that we get past
With broken heartstrings
We strum the same chord
But in these ruins we will not last

You said you’d stay with me friend
But I’ve never felt more alone
I’ll take the knife out of my back
And hold it to your fucking throat

I’ve got a feeling I got it right
So listen to me one more time
You’re nothing special you’re on your own
This is where I draw the line

Now sing for me
Pushing hard against these walls
Now sing for me
Pushing hard against these walls

In this bullshit
Dishonest
Environment
This is a fucking war
Beyond comprehension
This was not my fucking intention

The future’s laid to waste
And what we have just will not last
We are carrying the weight
That’s been left to us
Burdens from our past
Track Name: Set In Stone
You live for tomorrow
Well I live for today
These broken promises
Will never change
You live for the answer
And I beg for the question
I suffer in silence
Again and again

And I will find a new way home
Even though the streetlight’s broken
My eyes adjust to the light
From a life that’s spent in darkness
We won’t be forgiven
And we won’t be forgotten
We live in sin, working for the broken

Karma is a bitch
With such a pretty fucking face

And I will find a new way home
These chains won’t slow me down
I’m buried in burden
Six feet underground

And I will not forget this
These words are set in stone
I will relieve this promise
Even if I do it on my own
I make the same mistakes
That I’ve always made
The curse that burns with time
Forsaken

You live for tomorrow
Well I live for today
These broken promises
Will never change
You live for the answer
And I beg for the question
I suffer in silence
Again and again

And I will find a new way home
These chains won’t slow me down
I’m buried in burden
Six feet underground

And in the moment
We’re face to face
And in this moment
We’re face to face

This is the answer to my prayers
And I will not forget this
These words are set in stone
Set in stone
Track Name: Illusions
She’d sooner stab you in the back
Than hold your head
I only hope you see sense
Before you feel regret
Sometimes I wonder why I never let you go
You were the one that held me back

The hardest thing I’ve ever done
Will lead to better things to come

You go your way
And I’ll go mine
I was always waiting
Being the last in line
There was no choice
No chance to resist
To deal with you again
I would rather not exist

When everything seemed bright
You were the one who turned the light off
Making me think of things
That I wouldn’t dream of
You wasn’t worth it
You were always good for nothing
I bite my tongue
Cause I know that I say too much

Where you’ve gone
Is where you’ll always stay alone
Where you’ve gone (Take back what you said, I won’t feel regret)
Is where you’ll always stay (Take back what you said)

One more problem
Another weight on my arms
One more problem
Another weight on my arms

Blood runs thicker than water
In the river where I saw you drown
Blood runs thicker than water
In the river where I saw you drown
Blood runs thicker than water
In the river where I saw you drown
Blood runs thicker than water
In the river where I saw you drown

Take back what you said
I won’t feel regret
Take back what you said
Track Name: Borderlines
We’re lost in the dark
Follow paths with fading outlines
Light falls on me
In the shape of a blood-stained dagger

So wrap your arms
Around this false protector
And hope that they
Might still have a chance

We’re waiting on the border

Don’t try and take this
Don’t try and take this from me

So wrap your arms around me
And all of this will end in time
So wrap your arms around me
And get me through these sleepless nights

We will not stray and help the living
We fight for the dead
Pray for fallen dreams
Tearing at the seams
Everything you love
Is everything I hate

You’re afraid
That I’ll be dancing
On your grave

So wrap your arms around me
And all of this will end in time
So wrap your arms around me
And get me through these sleepless nights

We’re waiting on the border
We follow paths you cannot see
We’re waiting on the border
Don’t try and take this from me

And she said
These lies are just words with less meaning
I keep getting wounded
While I’m still healing
