Track Name: Captive
Captive

Black masses were held for the slaves to desire
Fire and brimstone, they led us to the pyre
For feeling alone and devoid of all hope
ones set to protect us were the ones who cut our throat.

True leaders have fallen a thousand times before
This joke of a system can survive no more
We may be weary but we're not dead quite yet
The straw that broke the camels back will be the one to break your neck

The writings on the wall (you took away our trust)
No time to feel anymore (you took away what's ours)
You spread your lies and deceit (you took away our trust)
Now all we feel is defeat(you took away what's ours)
Ashes to ashes, for what does the dust cost
Torching the innocent and abandoning the lost
The skylines engulfed by the fires of greed
Is there a better way than letting our mother bleed

is there a better way
we may be weary but we're not dead quite yet we may be weary but we're not dead quite yet
the skylines engulfed by the fires of greed
is there a better way than letting our mother bleed
Track Name: Stepping Stones
Stepping Stones

Build on Failure
Close the door to the past
Forget the mistakes, don’t dwell on them
Use them as a stepping-stone

Don’t let them have
Any of
Your energy
Your energy

Don’t let them have any of
Your time and space

I have stumbled
From loss to loss
But never
Lost my will

My life has been
A circle of half tries
And I am ready
To tie them off

The past is everything
I failed to be
But from the gutter
I looked up and saw the sky

I fell down yesterday
But I stand today

I am myself
Because everyone else
Is already
Taken

I am myself
In a world
That tells me to be
Something else

And it’s my greatest
Accomplishment

Your words are just words
Until they are put to work
Your actions not words
Will change your world
Your life

Your words are just words
Until they are put to work
Your actions not words
Will change your world
Your life
Track Name: A Thousand Days
A Thousand Days

Over a thousand days
I got carried away
Further and further away.
I beat on this wall, to turn it to a door
But it's never changing
No not this time.
So I am left behind
To pick up the pieces.
I need my confusion cleared
To send me home to sleep.

I am plagued by my undying devotion,
To you
And it's going to stop, it has to stop.
After I came apart
All I saw was red
What I wouldn't give to see myself again.
(To start again)

Look
Look at me at last
And tell me the truth
Your spell is broken
Your spell is broken

Look
Look at me at last
And tell me the truth
Your spell is broken
Your spell is broken

I beat on this wall, to turn it to a door
But it's never changing
No not this time.
So I am left alone
To to cross these empty skies.
I need my confusion cleared
To wake me from this dream.

Your engines slowed
And then they stalled
So you put up a wall to high to climb.
And I'm left behind
And I don't want to see the red
In hopes it carries me forward
(This is not the end).

I will rage on
Rage on into the night
Even though I lost this fight in the end.
I was in this for the long haul
(The long haul)
I will find find myself again
(In the end).

I was in this for the long haul
(The long haul)
I will find find myself again
(In the end).
I will find find myself again
(In the end).
I will find find myself again
(In the end).
I will find find myself again
I will find find myself again
Track Name: Hopeless
Hopeless

I once lost myself
I once though I was
I thought I was Dead
Living in the pits of a
A blackened hell

Never to return
I wasted the better parts of my life
I passed on what was offered to me
I took advantage of what was given
To me

A broken feeling
Tearing me
Limb from limb

A broken feeling
Tearing me
Limb from limb

You have taken me to places
That I never thought I'd reach
I thought I was dead
But you brought me back
and made me appreciate

You made me appreciate

You made me appreciate
Life In a way I couldn't imagine

Is it over
Hope keeps this fire
From burning out

Is it over
Hope keeps this fire
From burning out

Is it over
Hope keeps this fire
From burning out
Track Name: Home
Home

Halfway down the path.
The point if no return.
No breathe to to back
My fate won't hold me back.

Halfway down the path.
The point if no return.
No breathe to go back
Move forward into the unknown.

A battle between heart and mind.
Seldom want the same thing.
Your life will be faced with two choices.
Love or hate.

I don't let the ignorant judge me.
They don't understand the path that I crossed.
My life was faced with two choices.
But my fate is guided by me.

Guided by me.

I don't let the ignorant judge me
It's a battle between heart and mind
Our lives are faced with two choices
Love or Hate

Halfway down the path.
The point if no return.
No. Breathe. To. Go. Back.
My fate won't hold me back.

Halfway down the path.
The point if no return.
No. Breathe. To. Go. Back.
Move forward into the unknown.

I've been waiting my whole life.
I've been waiting my whole life.
To find my worth.
(My Worth)
To find my worth
And come home.

I've been waiting my whole life.
I've been waiting my whole life.
To find my worth.
(My Worth)
To Find my worth
And come on home.

Just come on home
Just come on home
Just come on home
Just come on home
Track Name: Lost
Lost

Why can't I shake this pain
It follows with every step I take
There is no running away
At every corner it's there lurking behind me
it's like I'm stuck in a nightmare and I'm never going to wake

Every night I look the sky
Just for answers (just for answers)
But all the stars have fallen
And were buried
With every inch of hope

Now there's just darkness
Spreading through me
(And now I'm running blind)
Now there's just darkness
Spreading through me
(And now I'm running blind)

I need you more than ever
To give me guidance (to give me strength)
This pain has held me captive for so long
And I can't do this by my self

Break these chains from my neck
And set me free (and set me free)
Darkness is crushing me
Set me free (set me free)
Track Name: Lights
Lights

You were always the one that would bring light to any situation
There was never any darkness when you were around
You made us see so clearly
That's why it hurts so much to see you like this

There's no shame in being who you my brother there comes a point where enough is enough and you have to take back control of yourself
We are here for you and we are proud of who you are

You were always the one that would bring light to any situation
And then she came along and took the light straight from your eyes


Battered and bruised she took your space to breathe
You salivate at the thought of being alone
It doesn't have to be like that because we're here for you and we are proud of who you are
She's taken everything out on you and it's time to take a fucking stand

She's had her hand around your neck one to many times now
My brother stand up for who you are take back that light that was once in your eyes and stand tall
Stand tall my brother stand tall
Stand tall my brother stand tall
Stand tall my brother stand tall
Stand tall my brother stand tall
