Track Name: Cast It Off
Left alone was I left to write all my wrongs
I hate what I've become
Cast it off
Cast it off
And all my life I've become what I'm not, it's killing me
All my life these demons I had sought to bury me
I've come to think after all I was the culprit of my own defeat
And all my life I've become what I'm not, it's killing me
All my life I've wandered from what I was
All my life I've wondered what I'd become if I just jumped
And all my I've been here all along just couldn't see
Unbury me
Track Name: Girl In Blue
I can't remember, I can't break through
I'll fall forever, I'll fall forever
If it means I'll make it to her
My ghost in blue
So drown me with her
Drown me with her kiss
It was the proof that my heart was true
My life was new then, my life was new
Then I swam back to the surface
My senses tuned to the wanderers burden
To bear the truth
But then time revealed my weakness
It ran me through
I lost sight of heaven
I lost sight of you
My girl in blue
My girl in blue
Won't you rescue me
Won't you set me free
Mama wash me clean
Or else I'll never be what I was meant to be
Track Name: Apocalypse
I had a dream last night of the apocalypse
How did it come to this
My brother's eyes looked to mine to find some guidance
But he never found it
And even with the flash that drowned the heavens out
Still he had his doubts
And all I had was the chance to say my last farewell
My friend you've made your brother proud
In the end that was all I had to give him
Lately I've grown so tired
Of building all these bridges for the fire
At least they kept me warm a little while

I dreamt again last night of the apocalypse
How to a cave I fled
While safe inside I gazed my eyes upon the whole event
You should've seen it
I saw my world begin and end within an instant
I'm free I'm free at last
From all the things that kept me in my past
I just wish I knew where everyone was at

With nothing left I went to have my way with her
Virgin mother earth
Oh she wept as I spread my sins across her
Oh I was a monster
Instead of love I only came to rape and rob her
But I'm free I'm free at last
Don't look at me like that
You would've done the same as I given the chance

I never dreamt again of the apocalypse
That vision came and went
And all the fears and dreams I had all went up with it
Cause who needs an artist
When all that's left here is some garbage and some insects
No one to hear this lonesome boy
But I'm free I'm free at last
I just wish I knew where everyone was at
Track Name: Wait
Wait love don't
Wait love stay
I thought that I should change my name
Start over with a brand new face
At least just take the cowards way
But that gun just had this awful taste
I guess it's an acquired one
Wait Son this pain this love are the same drug
It's just gonna take some time
There's not much death can change
I know, it sucks
It's how you play the game when the chaos comes
Here it comes
Wait love don't
There's so much I had left to take
But you had the nerve to run away
And the self respect
I wish that I could do the same
But everywhere I'd run my demons came
They're my closest friends
Oh no
Wait Son this love this lust are the same drug
That's all it was
It's such an awful prank on us
I wish I'd never played and just kept on driving love
Track Name: All the Pieces
She's all the pieces she won't show
She'll hold your hand she'll let you go
Abandons wrong assumes the right
Keeps the home keeps you outside
It's the springtime of my life
Oh can't you feel it
The perfect storm the sacred calm
Scratches on chalkboard perfect song
Makeup warfare bare in sheets
Lusting ego loving me
It's so deafening to see it, the way I see it
She keeps me coming back for more
I'm keeping one eye on her one on the door
Cause that's what friends are for, alright?
And after all I start to blame
And wind up spinning in my place
Collapsing in expanding out
Losing hope collecting doubt
Burn down everything to feel it
The way I feel when
She keeps me farther than my heart
And brings me another day another start
I'm bleeding from every hole her gun had shot
I'll burn down all my gods
All but one
I am endless
If I end this
Then I'm sure that I'll be back to haunt my dreams
It's pathetic
How pathetic we can be
And lately I've become just what I thought I'd be
It's pathetic
How pathetic we can be
Cause lately all I want is her and me
Track Name: One More Minute
She shook me up said boy lets talk
I said please give me one more minute
Of the life I used to love
We can't just sit here on our hands
I asked why not she said just listen
I was yours but now our time has come
And gone again

Was it my selfishness
Was I protecting it too much
Was it pride or was it love
In the end it didn't matter much

Some nights I see her by my side
Her eyes reflect the pain I've hidden
It's a truth so obvious
I wake up calling after her
By then she's faded from my vision
In the same way I faded from her heart
She's gone again

Was it my selfishness
Was I protecting it too much
Was it pride or was it love
In the end it didn't matter much
In the end that song is sung

And we can't go back my love
And it seems so obvious
That the more we keep this up
The sudden stop
Might kill the both of us

I'm just the jealous type
A fact that I try to hide too much
I just wanted you by my side
But I was holding on too tight
My love I apologize
Just wanted you by my side
I'm hanging up now
I'll be fine
Track Name: Major Minor
I was a coward
Lied by the hour
Of every idea I feared the most
Was one when this offspring shot up his family
The blood on my hands still warm and rose

Oh mama what have I done
It seems someone got a hold of granddad's drugs
Or inherited all the pain you and daddy passed down the chain
Don't worry ma I'll be okay

I fled for the city
Found someone pretty (naive)
To think I could be her one
I guess I got lucky
She laid and she loved me
Ignoring my horns and smoking gun

Her eyes they had this soft green
They knew me before I had the chance to speak
But the pain that I saw in them reflected this troubled man
I hated that
So I shot her dead
Oh I shot her dead

Darling what have I done
I had love
I guess I'll never have enough
The devil asked me once
Say are you happy bruv?
I said can I be honest man?
The truth is I hate my guts
I'm tired of doing this
Can I just hear that sound
Of everything that I've done
Everything that I am
Just fade it out
Where did you wander off?
Why are you so alone?
That boy had a heart of love
That's something you don't outgrow
I'm ready to start again
I know what I have to do
There's people back there I love
I want them to know the truth

The truth is I was afraid
I blamed you for all my pain
I wanted to be a king
In a kingdom that wanted me
I wanted to be a god
But god was in everyone
I wanted to be your god
But god was in everyone

I love you I'm sorry
Please forgive me

This is the end
Track Name: Giant
Something I can't live with
I lost it at least that once or twice
I'd call to see if you would listen
But how after all the times I lied to your face?

I'd be the holiest of virtues
If fame would turn its ugly head and leave
I'd bow to the sacredness of feminine
And learn the thing that pride keeps from me

You dreamed you loved and you believed in me
But one day I just couldn't be
The thing I measured up in your mind
But I was a fake I was a hypocrite of the greatest design

I've given up on all religion
I hold myself up now with my own two legs
Too bad I could've missed it
After you had used yours to walk away
It's strange
It's as if it's designed to be that way

I lost all my love
I gave you up
I had so much
I had so much

I believe
The thing that I was missing
Was the love of everything I had around me
I guess I gets a little anxious
When I'm stuck with the mirror in front of me
