Track Name: No Direction
Always moving with no direction
I tried to fill these holes with good intensions
And I’m slipping and I’m still learning
And when your gone the world keeps on turning
I haven’t left an imprint I haven’t found my voice
These empty bottles don’t seem to block out the noise
I’ve begun to blame it on the weakness in my knees
I’ve begun to blame it on the weakness in my knees
Why can’t I ignore it, Why can’t I escape it
The mysteries of a closet, And all that lies inside it
Why can’t I escape it, Why won’t it let me out
I’m keeping it well fed, And its always around
I haven’t left an imprint I haven’t found my voice
These empty bottles don’t seem to block out the noise
I’ve begun to blame it on the weakness in my knees
I’ve begun to blame it on the weakness in my knees
Track Name: Capitalize Me
There’s something growing in my head Lately I feel like an animal so well fed By the duty imposed on me Now I feel I owe but i don’t owe you shit
I’m so sick of being told that I am sick
Getting tired of believing in false convictions
Underpaid over worked i’ve begun to ask what i am worth
Now that i’ve met a couple of people Now that i’ve seen a couple of things
I’ve come to understand that The enemy isn’t inside of me
Its in everything I touch its in everything I see
It’s talking too loudly, I can’t hear myself think I can’t hear myself breathe, Was I ever even alive? Was I ever even alive?
There’s always room at the top you are only valued by how much you’ve got well i’ve counted my bills and still I’m worth nothing How much is it to be free?
Am i wearing a noose or a tie, an empty shell being capitalize
The good die while disease is right in front of my eyes.
Track Name: Alone With It All
The nights are getting longer and your father is losing faith,
He was tired of falling down even more so of getting up
The sun wasn’t rising fast enough fast enough
As you walked home, As the ground shook.
The sun wasn’t rising fast enough fast enough
You tried to call because you hadn’t heard any news
Your brother’s voice whispered cancer
and the words shook right through you
You almost broke your hand on the wall
Everything was spiralling out of control
All I want to is just see that smile
If I close my eyes I can still see for awhile
And if I open them will i have to face it
That in the end we’re alone with it all.
All the mistakes all of the wasted time
All of the holes in the walls and in them what did we find
All of the regret all of the countless mistakes
I’ll take everything back, I’ll do whatever it takes.
Track Name: Bridges
Past the rusty swing set beneath our old tree
There’s something in the water and it’s always following me
Trying to out run and not get left behind
But it seems to follow me every time.
And just when I think the bridge will hold
Can it withstand the burden of growing old.
And just when I think it can handle the weight
It collapses taking everything
Leaving all of us behind, I only wish that I can rewind.
And its such a funny thing the laughs we’ve shared and the sorrow it brings I yell I scream, take me instead I think I paid my debt.
I know its selfish but I just don’t want to be left behind.
Track Name: Bottled Up
I made another promise to myself
One which I know I will never keep
My words are dripping with conviction
It’s too bad that I forget them every time I go to sleep
What is it that makes me believe that I won’t keep coming back for more.
I’m drowning, I’m drowning in a pool of my own guilt
I can swim but the water is just way too calming
Now I’m back the same old story surprised when I see the morning
who knows how long I can stay afloat there’s got to be a punch line to every joke
Can I have another sip of your scotch dad
But you know i’m just trying to do my time, I’ve lost track of how much i have left I guess this is why they say life’s a test
I can feel it testing me, I can feel it testing me
Too late to be clean, I’m already a mess
Track Name: Nepal
She wanted to taste life
Not watch it from afar
All she wanted to do
All she hadn’t done.
I swear theres nothing fair about burying your mom
So she made a wish blew out her candles
Packed her bag with all it could handle
Your father never cried and it was all for you
except when he said you do what you have to
Never looking back not now not ever
Did you finally figure out what it means
I want to know everything you discovered
Never looking back not now not ever,
Did you finally figure out what it means
I want to know everything you discovered
And now she’s leaving again normal life feels like a prison
because life is short but least it would be her decision
In search of something real, not just looking for time to kill.
Theres always ways to pick yourself up even though the winds are rough,
But the clouds got darker as the day went on
and its impossible to comprehend, how its just a spin of the wheel
There's no rhyme or reason, its not even avalanche season
There's no rhyme or reason
Now i don’t trust the ground below me and i don’t trust the mountains above.
And all the beauty, all the grey you coloured in will grow with everyone you loved.
Track Name: Fool's Gold
I saw a lady without a face,
Maybe she had one but just forgot to wear it that day,
I tried not to stare but i just couldn’t help my gaze,
She turned to me and said go on your merry way.
Right after she jumped in front of that train
Why does brightness always seem so tragic right before the rain
Only 42 years old, she didn’t leave a note
Her family didn’t understand when she said to value what isn’t sold
the rest she said is only fools gold
She never got married never had kids,
She left no legacy behind,
I want to know what it is
That creates this emptiness inside.
Maybe it’s not created but merely amplified over time
Lie by lie, every time you say those words
I’m doing just fine
Track Name: Fade
No more tracks to cover, nothing more to avoid
What did you bury when you were just boys
It trickled through your hands what did you lose
Did you wear your scars like a badge or was it another bruise
You try not to think about it every single day
Feeling selfish that you ask those memories to fade away
How you lost yourself How you lost faith
How you lost your colour
How you lost everything that you thought you’d never lose
How does death work how does it pick and choose.
Because lately its you that i see in the mirror
And I still think about, I think about what you whispered in my ear
How you lost yourself How you lost your faith
How you lost your colour How you lost your brother
How you lost everything that you thought you’d never lose
How does death work how does it pick and choose
