Track Name: Two Years
Two years we've been together

you're burning bridges you once built

Taught me so many lessons

I thought I could instill



Right here, with my friends (with my friends)

Right here, with my brothers.



But maybe all I need, is a taste of something new.

Maybe all I need, is a new beginning.

A taste of something new.



Two years we've been together

you're burning bridges you once built (you once built)

Taught me so many lessons

I thought I could instill



Right here, with my friends

Right here, with my brothers.



Don't wake me up, because tomorrow

is a new chapter.

Don't wake me up, because tomorrow

is a new beginning.
Track Name: Live Today
I've given up hope, on this endless dream

from now until the grave, it's not a part of me

I've given up hope, on this endless dream

from now until the grave, it's not a part of me



It's time to live alone from everyone, that i've ever known

I will, be okay

It's time to live alone from everyone, that i've ever known

I will, be okay



Live today, live today live for everyday

Live today, live today live for everyday

For all the kids, who always dream like me

Fuck your past, and lets get angry

To all the kids, who always dream like me

Fuck your past, and lets get angry



Live Today.



You have one chance, maybe one night

To make her count

You have once chance, maybe one night

To make her count, make her count

To make this count



I'm gathering, every last chance

We spent together, and i'll cherish it all

I'm gathering, every last time (Every last time)

We spent together, and i'll cherish it all (I'll cherish it all)
Track Name: Cry Out
This, is my cry out for a family

I never had one to call my own.

I was born into addiction

and now I'm forced to carry on.



Without your help, I'm only searching for (the memories, held in me)

For all those times, that you've failed me.



My mother's burden, my father's seed.

I'm moving on, moving away.

This is me, with no path to follow

and no place to go.



This, is my cry out for a family

I never had one to call my own.

I was born into addiction

and now I'm forced to carry on in this life

Alone.



Now I'm forced to carry on, alone.



Without your help, I'm only searching for (the memories, held in me)

For all those times, that you've failed me.
Track Name: Hollow
I'll never learn, to live with this

Hollowness, inside me

To exist without emotion

for anything, or anyone



My hollowness, inside me

This hollowness, inside of me

All this hate, I've learned

for myself



I can't feel anything

Nothing happy, all regret

This body is, disposable

I can't feel anything

No family, no shelter yet

This body is, disposable

disposable



Another day, all these feelings of regret

Another day, that I come up short



I need to get this off my chest

I want the world to know

That loneliness, is our everything

Loneliness is all we've got

In this deadened world

Loneliness is my everything
Track Name: My Written Path
(I am the saddest man alive, and I found out

that every single love you have in life, will leave you.)



I am the saddest man alive, and I found out

that every single love you have in life, will leave you.



Let it all, pass me by.

Because I truly don't want to be alive.

Time goes on without me feeling anything.

I would rather sleep this all away.

I give my life back, to change how this used to be.



Let it all, pass me by.

Because I truly don't want to be alive.



I won't stop, till I can feel something in my heart.

I won't stop, till I can feel something in my heart.

I am the saddest man alive

and I'm not afraid, to take this life.

I am the saddest man alive

and I'm not afraid, to take this life.



I've lost myself, I've lost my written path for this life.

There is nothing good and I know that there never will be.

I am not afraid to take my life.

I've lost my written path

and I've lost myself.



I can see my bitter future (my life)

come to an end.

I can see my bitter future

and it's coming to an end.
