Track Name: Always Know
Convincing fear
This bastards disease
Behind this wall of hate
I've learned there is no release
Go ahead and dig as deep as you want
I'll still contradict myself with each passing thought
I'll be shallow, I'll be deep
But always know that broken cant feel complete
Always know
Track Name: Purge of Help
All my words are disingenuous
Who do you turn to when you can't trust yourself?
In the end I never meant for this
Cursed by this purge
This purge of help
Track Name: Buried
The more we speak
The less words mean
So I keep it shut
Buried in me
Because who am I
To ever say a thing?
But make no mistake
I confide in the hate
Buried
Track Name: The Catacombs
Living above The Catacombs;
The Catacombs of What Could Have Been
To continue down this path we're on
The only choice I ever had
And at the mercy of circumstance
It gets hard to hold your head
High enough to look forward
But I have to get out of bed
I have to leave this house
I have to leave this home
Uprooted from the ground
There's nothing left to hold
I gave everything I had
Even what I stole
I can live with feeling sad
You just made feel more whole
You just made me feel more
Track Name: Own Self
I can see the evil in everyone
Something I just cant help
I could fall in love with anyone
Anyone but my own self
But we're just people
Dying in our conditions
We're just people
We need someone to listen
Listen
Track Name: Just to Feel
I need to be preoccupied
So stab me with a knife
Divert all this pain
That I feel on the inside
Or convince me this is temporary
Call it a phase in my life
But each day gets darker
And it gets harder to survive
These waves of plague
That never seem to go away
God knows the days I'd trade
Just to feel
Just to feel okay
Track Name: Afloat
There's a handful of conversations
Keeping me afloat
Can you feel the dirt in my words?
It's the rate at which we're falling
It's the slate of this slope
And I'm genuinely sorry
But I had to let go
I'm genuinely sorry
You can write in stone
Track Name: Ocean of Thought
As your words resonate across
This vast ocean of thought
As your cold touch or lack thereof
Seemingly reinforce
All of my weakness
Filled to the brim
All the insecurities
I cant fucking win
Track Name: Followed In
Let the chirping of the crickets keep you awake
Pick at the scabs so they wont go away
Do as you will but no mistake
The holes in your soul don't mean a thing
Until you follow them in and thats exactly what I did
I followed them in and they swallowed me whole
Track Name: Otherwise
Feel no contentment
But believe it exists
With gripping resentment
Just cant let go of this
And as I trudge the trenches
Its a battle everyday
And its the things we don't mention
That start to eat away
And you could never be what I needed you to be
Because you don't see the potential I see
Because I'm always thinking otherwise
Silly of me to think otherwise
I'm always thinking otherwise
Always thinking
