Track Name: Wolves
So begins a loss of self.
God assigned fear for my health.
This isnt home, its barely real.
Raised by wolves, open hearts
Lies end where the pictures starts (where the picture starts)

Maybe its me
Can't be
I've given all my worth and they call it their own.

I regret to inform
Povich called on the phone.
The results are in.
Don't call this my family again.

Here we go
Calling every man our own
Did you think I'd adapt that well?
I can still tell
These are strangers in my house

Leave compassion at the door, promises left on the floor.
Cancer kiled the hope in me.
Hear the echoes in the clouds,
an angel's foot taps loudly now.
Don't forget whose bed you sleep in.

Maybe its me
Can't be
I've given all my worth and they call it their own.

I regret to inform
Povich called on the phone.
The results are in.
Don't call this my family again.

Here we go
Calling every man our own
Did you think I'd adapt that well?
I can still tell
These are strangers in my house

Don’t fret, it’s ok.
One soul mate never cuts it these days.

The dinner table’s not the same with an empty chair.
Closing my eyes and pretending she’s there.
Finding a replacement is always hard.
A drifter will never fill the void in my heart.

Consider these dead eyes proof.
I wasted her in my youth.
What do family pictures prove?
Maybe they’ll leave me too.

Pass the flask and take my heart, releasing every pressure.
Lost in every step I take, rid of every effort.
Pass the flask and take my heart, releasing every pressure.
Bow my head and ask the sky, "why did you take her"?

Maybe if I dig up her grave I’ll find myself.
I’m a native to nowhere.
Track Name: Beast Of Burden
We’re back here at square one.
Fighting this current over and over again.
Nobody knows, nobody listens.
My dreams are gold – until the curtain’s pulled.
My life’s complacent, tired, fragile, and seamlessly stuck to moments passed.
The future’s lost in broken homes, failures that I’ve never known.
Find me a place to sleep.

I heard the music got me here, the poison.
Why can’t I quit?

Beauty holds no match to your indifference. The artist lost again. (lost again)

Passion aboard the ghost ship. Passion made this van flip.

Forever young, forever fucked.
Track Name: Horologist
I remember the first time yesterday felt like it was worth all the world.
Tomorrow beckons at the call. I am a ticking time bomb.
This fury burns and I can’t breathe. Between false philosophies, I’m stuck and the clock’s power is ruining everything.

I watch my fortunes falling behind me.
Finding faith in memories that don’t exist.
There is no page to turn. Only ink to smear and come to cope with it.

They call this age. History spits in the face of every honest dream.
Empty and devoured at once, my mind races without me and I can’t find the story to tell.

It’s too late to try, the shame’s tattooed to my eyes.
My insides- a disguise. I hope they don’t seep through.
Father you raised me well, sorry no one can tell.
Your endeavors have reached about as far as mine.

I remember the first time yesterday felt like it was worth all the world.
Tomorrow beckons at the call. I am a ticking time bomb.
The world revolves around the end. The sunlight’s hope is gone again.
I’m stuck and my own constructions are ruining everything.

I had this dream that time stood still. The past gave up, and let go of us.
I had this dream that time stood still. Our hearts moved on and never looked back.
