Track Name: Apologies
I'm sorry
That Ive been so weak
Its safe to say that Ive become worst defeat
and at the end of this tragedy i will find my place
I will find my way
Track Name: One Summer
I admit
Im lost
Ive been wrong all this time
Bending over backwards to lead a life
That was never mine
Could you put your trust in me
Even though Ive gone off the deep end

This has lit a fire that’s inside of my heart
And it burns for you
It fucking burns for you
I see my future right ahead
But can you live on when you already feel so dead
I stay so lost in my head

The winds have changed and all I can see
Is the shadow of a man that im suppose to be
My mind is jaded but my heart stays pure
And your expectations keep asking for more

Just give me a sign that ive made progress
Im coping with the fear of losing what I have left
Your heart is only as gold as you make it to be
So can you
Have faith in me

So bury the kids that we used to be
no longer naïve never falling asleep
cause we see this all so clearly now
if only we could find direction
or motivation
we could have something to strive for
this is our moment its here for the taking
I have nothing but faith in you
Cause this is family

This is your moment its hear for the taking
I have nothing but faith in you
I put my trust in you

Just give me a sign that ive made progress
Im coping with the fear of losing what I have left
Your heart is only as gold as you make it to be
So can you
Have faith in me

This is your moment its hear for the taking
I have nothing but faith in you
I put my trust in you
Track Name: Too Awake Too Alive
Wake me up

Your sense of judgement makes me sick
(she told me)
Im more than through with your bullshit
and this is the last time im giving up
so now step down from your throne
you never meant a thing to anyone
just face the truth

Im sick of running and hiding
from the man I was born to be

Ill send the message
im doing just fine
so fuck those high opinions stuck in your head
im moving on

finally ive found the strength to stand my ground
but all you do is judge me and kick me while im down
from everything I want to everything I need
I don't know where you fall or where ill even be
or if you still
think of me

Ive walked this path for far to long
but what the fuck was i trying to prove
that i could gain the respect of a failure
with clouded ethic views
i know now that these times seem bleak
but you gave me (life)
perceptions misguided by a fading light
it makes me sick
i cant thank you enough for
being my reason to live

Ill send the message
im doing just fine
so fuck those high opinions stuck in your head
im moving on
too awake and too alive I found myself
in the darkest place ive ever been
its time I made amends for who I am and who ive been

too awake and too alive I found myself
in the darkest place ive ever been
its time I made amends for who I am and who ive been

perceptions misguided by a fading light
it makes me sick
i cant thank you enough for
being my reason to live
this is my everything all that i hold on to
i will break through
Track Name: Vultures
breaking the mask
I wore to get ahead
I am finally content with myself
but they will never let me rest

Things all fall apart
we stitched this with fabric
you burned from the start
a mindset obtained
to live for now
and question everything

you've broken me
all I know is defeat
but i will always try to prove myself
To a world that spit on my dreams
to a worls that wont question a fucking thing.

I have grown bitter
countless nights I've spent
trapped inside my head
you have to learned your place
I found solace keeping
friends with the ground


Things all fall apart
we stitched this with fabric
you burned from the start
a mindset obtained
to live for now
questioning
everything


open your fucking mind. Appreciate yourself
and other people for who they truly are
not what consumes them i fucking pray this gets through to you.

Don’t live a life you didn't choose.

Only you know the truth

Don't Live a lie you didn't choose

you've broken me
all I know is defeat
but i will always try to prove myself
To a world that will spit on my dreams
to a world that wont question a fucking thing.
So tell your vultures
that you're not dead yet
cause we never had to wait this long
why would you choose to wait too long

no stranger to frowns
im a slave to this town
crushed up these pills thinking
“just keep your head down”
I've tried so many times but I'm sick
take this life from me
I'm fed up from all this shit

Everyone has a story they leave
that fades into the past
why should you be who they want you to be?
If its no t going to last?

(Jaded and Weak)
The vultures will
tear out our throats
(don’t lose your voice)
Im sick of their judgement
for the only truth I've ever known
when will it end?
when will it end? When will it end?
My patience running thin
So don't think that i’ll play your games
my heart will stay true
to what it has fought to maintain.


you've broken me
all I know is defeat
but i will always try to prove myself
To a world that will spit on my dreams
to a world that wont question a fucking thing.
So tell your vultures
That you're not dead yet
we never had to wait this long
