Track Name: Value
Ignite your passion
Let it burn you to the bone

If I don't value myself then who will
But I won't waste my life upon a pedestal
Open my eyes to the world around me
And see all of the things that set me free

A beating heart pumping in my chest
It keeps pushing and pushing, no time for rest
And if the beating stops before I ever reach my dreams
I want to know I was the best man that I could have been
Track Name: Solitude
And it all comes rushing back

The feelings I tried to forget
The ones I buried in my head
They scratch their way back towards the surface
What did I do to deserve this

This time
I'll try
To find the remedy
Before this consumes me

If I can't find the control
It'll leave me alone
Yeah I already know
The fire's in me

And I know I've been acting cold
But still this fire inside me grows
And everyone I love and everyone I know
Will surely get burned

And when the day finally comes
When I've left myself with no one
At least I'll know this solitude
Is something that I've earned

And if you take a step towards me
You'll start to feel the heat
Not born of love not fit to fucking breathe
A heat that burns you eternally

And it still comes rushing back

I clench my fists I grit my teeth
And feel it start to eat away at me
The kind of hatred you can see
The kind that haunts you while you sleep

If I
Can't find
The love I buried inside

I'll just shut my eyes
And let this fire die
And be left with ashes

And I know I've been acting cold
But still this fire inside me grows
And everyone I love and everyone I know
Will surely get burned

And when the day finally comes
When I've left myself with no one
At least I'll know this solitude
Is something that I've earned

Pry open these clenched fists
Fill them with calm and forgiveness
I'm losing the will to fight this
I'm burning out while this still persists

I don't want to be angry anymore
Track Name: Standstill
Looking forward at the path ahead of me
All I can see
Is a crooked trail
Carved out of my frailty

I stand at the crossroads where my
Self doubt and insecurity meet
And I'm left to chose
Which one I'll let ruin me

Breathe life into my dreams
Cause these days just feel like every
Hope I had is decaying

I'm running out of purpose
And the will to find a new one
Revive my aspirations
Before I sink too far to save

I'm sinking too far to save

Living life in standstill
Is a state I wish I'd never grown to see
I used to fight the current
Now I'm just drifting out to sea

I don't know where it all went wrong
I don't know where I lost myself
Emptiness
I'll see you in my sleep

Sometimes I feel like
I'm not meant to fullfill anything more
Than an early grave
Waiting for me
Patiently

Wait for me, wait for me
My early fucking grave
Wait for me, wait for me
I'll see you in my sleep

So I'll lie in wait
To be dragged out of this hole
And when I finally surface
At least then I'll know

There is a path that I can take
That doesn't lead me to my grave
But one that leads me to a
Beautiful eternity

My light has been fading
But I won't lose it all
I'll build a new life
From the ashes of this hell

I'll shut my eyes
And breathe life into my dreams
Aspiration
I'll see you in my sleep
Track Name: Break Through
Today I hit a wall
I ran my fingers along the brick
Glued together with your name
And it made me fucking sick

This house is not a home
As long as its burdened with your scent
It's just a place that I reside
As I try to make some sense

Of where I have been headed
Of what you really meant
I tried to break through these barriers
But I couldn't make a dent

And now I stand here surrounded
By steel and stone
Break through
This place feels cold and empty
And I refuse to ever call it home

How did we ever let it get this far
Without ever walking away
How did we ever let it get this far
With you standing in my way

I think I caught your sickness
I think I'm getting old
My eyes are growing tired
And my hearts been growing cold

I feel you in my bloodsteam
Soaking me to the bone
If you want to spend your life holding back
You can do it in your own

This disease
Engulfs me
It brings me
To my knees

This disease
Shares your name
But you don't haunt me
Anymore

How did we ever let it get this far
Without ever walking away
How did we ever let it get this far
With you standing in my way
Track Name: Namesake
Shut your eyes

And find solace in
A lack of conciousness
Forget your pain
Forget your days
Forget the cancer that's been
Seeping through your veins

Hold my heart I'll hold your name
Though I'll never wear it the same
Cause I am weak while you are brave
Brave from birth until the grave

In a hospital bed
I saw your empty shell
And there's nothing I could do
But sit and wish you well

I don't know if you're still in there
Or if there's nothing left
But I'll still stay awake at night
Until you find rest

I know your light is fading
But I just don't have the heart
To watch the sunset with you
To watch you lose your spark

I know that you've been suffering
Even if you're not aware
And I just want you to find comfort
Even when I can't be there

Promise me that even as your fire burns out
I'll always feel your warmth
And I promise to think of you on every hard night
And every roaring storm

I'll always hold a piece of you
Where my name and my blood meet
And if I can't see you every fucking day
Then I'll see you in my sleep

I wish that I was stronger
I wish that I could be like you
I wish that you'd stay longer
And watch your legacy bloom

And maybe I'm just selfish
To want to keep you from the earth
But I know I need to let you go
Even if it hurts

Goodbye
Sleep well you gentle soul
And know that I'll look up to you
Even when I'm grey and old

Just know that every word I ever sing
Is sung with you in mind
And that your memory won't fade away
No matter the passage of time
Track Name: No Kind Of Love
Everyone wants something
Something to believe in
Everyone wants something to blame

Everyone wants something
Well I have nothing
But at least I know
I am the only one to blame

Injecting ignorance into the minds of youth
Outdated stories that we disguise as truth
Cover up the entrance to any other path you could choose
There is no freedom here you're bound by hate-driven rules

If there is a god
Well why did he turn his back and leave
If there is a god
Well I know that he wouldn't believe in me

So what are you left with
At the end of the day
A divine absence and some faith
And someone to blame

Investing your life
Into what lies above
A lifetime of judgement
Well that's no kind of love

Stare into the sun
And tell me you're not blind
Choke on your force-fed uncertainty
And tell me you don't mind

I don't mind

So what are you left with
At the end of the day
A divine absence and some faith
And someone to blame

Investing your life
Into what lies above
A lifetime of judgement
Well that's no kind of love

Well I can count everything a god has ever done for me on clenched fists
Look me in the eyes I'll swear to you I never asked for this
If I have to bury myself six feet under the dirt to reach the sky
Well surely you can understand when I question why
Why I have to criticize a love that claims to be true
Yet doesn't accept those who see differently than you

And if immortality's a gift waiting for me when I die
Well you're too late
Throw my ashes to the wind don't let them lie in wait
Waiting for salvation that will never come
Waiting for a promise that has come undone

If there's anyone looking down on me from above
Stop spending your time judging me and calling it love
Don't call me a follower

Take my hand and lead me to false hope and drag me lower
Then explain to me why I should waste my life waiting for it to be over
While you continue to judge me for the misdeeds of another from an older time
I am my own saviour
Save your lies
For as long as I'm still breathing
This life will be mine

This life is mine
This life is mine
I am not blind
This life is mine

I don't need to search the clouds to find hope
I don't need to search the stars to find my place
I found everything I need
I found everything I want
I found that hope
I found my home

I don't need to put my faith in anyone
Cause I have faith that I will one day be at peace
I found everything I need,
I found everything I want
I found that hope
I found my home

I found my home
