Track Name: The Beaten Path
I finally came to, yesterday is such a blur.
I don't know how I got here and I know now I can't turn back.
Stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Breathe a sigh of relief and move on to the next town.
Where we will leave our mark.
I dreamt we'd given up but I know that just can't be.
This is who we are.
This is why we thrive.
This is our true love.
This is the option for which we signed.
The option to truly feel alive.
This is all that I have ever wanted in my life.
I won't give up.
I refuse to let this slip through my hands.
I can't give up.
Is it too late to try again?
Track Name: Who's Kidding Who
It's over.
I feel a calm wash over me as I lie here silently.
Imposters pay their respects while they deal with their regrets.
Forget this, it's too late.
Could they have done more to prevent this?
Should I have done less? I deserve better than this.
It isn't their fault. I never let them in.
Looking down upon me while I look down on all of you.
I gave you all I had. I had nothing left to give.
From ear to ear, show the world your fear.
Cover it up with a smile, it'll only hurt for a little while.
This was never about me, admit it.
Were we really that close?
I gave and I gave, I gave until there was nothing left.
I had nothing left for all of you.
Do not remember me this way. I deserve better than that.
I am now nothing more than a memory.
You won't notice I'm gone.
You won't remember my name.
This was never about me.
When my will is read aloud it will read that I gave my all.
Let that light in.
Let that light shine.
Let that light burn.
Let that light die.
Track Name: Hazards
I am running on empty.
The fumes have long since disappeared.
I am feeling bone dry.
The gauge reads empty and that's how I feel.
What more do I have left to give?
What good is my advice if I don't want to live?
What's done is done and I'm breaking down on the side of the road.
What's done is done and I've broken down and I have never felt more alone.
I can't seem to see what lies ahead.
These city lights are blinding.
I have to find my own way.
I don't want to be like this.
I wouldn't wish this on anyone.
I left because I didn't want you to see me like this.
I can only be myself when I am by myself.
What is left but to start all over?
I swear I'll make it right this time.
This town has nothing left for me.
I'm moving on to god know's what.
I have to believe that there is something better out there.
I have to believe that I can make it anywhere.
I swear upon this cast that I will not break myself again.
I have hurt for long enough.
I need air for these collapsed lungs.
I can barely stand but I will find the strength within to start again.
Will you take my hand?
A new city, a new night, will bring this corpse back to life
Track Name: Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right
Four years removed.
A seven year old child is unaware of the horror's of this world.
Do not believe your parents when they say "there is no such thing as monsters".
Only thirty six months in and this young girl is forced to see that purity
will be taken from you.
Hope has vanished into the night.
Tears once saved for a skinned knee are now shed for something far worse.
Steel bars can not contain the intentions that will remain.
The red light is on.
This assasination will be televised.
You have no say.
You have no right.
You are not a man.
My only compromise is that I look into your eyes so that you can see
what it looks like when innocense dies.
I know that two wrong's don't make a right but it will help her sleep tonight
Track Name: All Good Things Must Come To An End
A fresh start, bitter to it's core.
An ailing heart, to fix itself once more.
We set out to change this world but we could only change our minds.
This became about us that night.
You can only push a dead dream so far.
Lucky Four's, unlucky five.
Home is where Hendershot is so we'll survive.
We'll burn that midnight oil one last time.
Our lives may appear rich but we are just as broke.
We can't afford to do this shit anymore but I can't afford to let it go.
If all good thing's must come to an end than we were done before we ever started
and I don't know if I will ever feel as alive as I did with the four of you by my side
