Track Name: Keepsakes
We won’t go back to what we were
We won’t go back to where we were
We won’t go back to what we were
We won’t go back to where we were
Track Name: It’s Not My Cup of Tea, but I’ll Drink It
We won’t go back to thinking we’ll always be
The person we always see staring back in the mirror
Waiting for the day that our time will come
There’s no use in sitting still our time is now

Tonight’s the night we raise the stakes
There’s a hell of a mountain to climb but we’ll find a way
The world is waiting

The best things in life are always closer than they appear
We’ve spent this time reminded the outcomes in our hands
Over and over again (oh oh oh oh oh)
I’ll sing till my lungs collapse

Why don’t you spend your days thinking of better ways to break our composure?
Our lives won’t depend upon what others say we do this our way
As you plant your seed of doubt, we’ve already built a base to stand on
We’ll bend but never break with every fracture
We grow stronger

Tonight’s the night we raise the stakes
There’s a hell of a mountain to climb but we’ll find a way
The world is waiting

The best things in life are always closer than they appear
We’ve spent this time reminded the outcomes in our hands
Over and over again (oh oh oh oh oh)
I’ll sing till my lungs collapse
Track Name: The Genie Should Stay in the Bottle
You found the perfect place, the perfect place that you always dreamed of
This sunken place has no love lost on your life
Breathe in the air it’s your last bout of sanity
The comfort of home never felt so thin
This all feels so wrong, feels so wrong

The darkness never faded
Founded on hatred revived by weakness
The darkness never faded
Destroying everything you love

Hold your breath. The fears progressed again now it’s holding you hostage
She sees you falling apart at the seams
Everywhere you go becomes a blackout
There’s someone in the basement
You should’ve never settled on this old house
It holds demented secrets
Grabbing ahold of you
This hollow body built from a foundation of issues
The time has come the time is now, fight back or get out

The darkness never faded
Founded on hatred revived by weakness
The darkness never faded
Destroying everything you love

Just face it you were doomed from the start
A heavy burden was left here that’s not moving on
You have a chance to break this vicious cycle
There will be no grace if it ends this way
She sees you falling apart
She sees you falling apart
You see her face, she seals your fate, your soul belongs to her now A common cold running through your veins only it’s progressed to consume you
You lost control of all the things you hold dear
Time’s up what will you do

The darkness never has faded
Founded on hatred revived by weakness
The darkness never faded
Destroying everything you love

I know there’s more inside of you
I know there’s war inside of you
Track Name: The Truest Reflection
I can’t imagine
What would happen
If I never had you here all this time what my life would be like

I want to thank you for everything
Always giving me hope when I start to feel weak

I can’t imagine
What would happen
If I never had you here all this time what my life would be like

A loose limb, I start to fall
You are the ones, you are the only ones
I know can lift me up
Any ounce of good in me is a reflection of you

I can’t imagine
What would happen
If I never had you here all this time what my life would be like

I can’t imagine who I’d become if I never had you here from the beginning of my life
The whispers you thought I would never take to heart
Speak to me now
Taught me to grow

I can’t imagine
What would happen
If I never had you here all this time what my life would be like
What my life would be like

I can’t thank you enough for all that you’ve done
You’re my rock
You’re my hero
You’re my heart
And my sun, my sun
Track Name: A Kings Departure is Never Silent
Hard headed, cold blooded the perfect combination for a life-long train wreck
That ran full speed off the tracks
It takes the heart of a devil to speak his language oh so well
Promising everything when all you bring is hell
Try your approach from a different angle but you only end up just talking in circles

We won’t hold back what must be said anymore
Every breath, every breath you take is too much

Do you feel anything you hollow waste of a name
You build your castle, we’ll watch it burn
Your crown now lays at the feet of those you betrayed
You’ll never see us backing down

Try to get back, try to try to get back, to a place that never heard your bull shit
Cause we won’t take that, no we won’t we won’t take that no
Your time is better spent wasting away

We won’t hold back anymore
Every breath you take is too much
Do you feel anything?

We won’t hold back what must be said anymore
Every breath, every breath you take is too much

Do you feel anything you hollow waste of a name
You build your castle, we’ll watch it burn
Your crown now lays at the feet of those you betrayed
You’ll never see us backing down
Track Name: Modern Romantics
Chin up darling, I’m still here to remind you of all that we’ve been through
If you want to give up I’d understand, I’d understand
It doesn’t have to been like this
With our memories in hand we’ll make it through

This is how its always ended, a simple feeling we neglected
To let it go, won’t let it go when all the hope has left

A glare in your eyes makes me wonder
Should a tear be shed over what we’ve lost
Or a smile arise over the time we loved
Cause there’s still a means to this end one door closes a thousand more open

This is how its always ended, a simple feeling we neglected
To let it go, won’t let it go when all the hope has left

Another blank heart to fill with false emotion
Playing the part of a desperate lover
The horror we faced as the end crept closer
Making excuses when we both know our fates to end this now

This is how its always ended, a simple feeling we neglected
To let it go, won’t let it go when we should have left
This is when it always ends no one knows what comes next
It won’t seem right but you’ll be alright
Track Name: Malevolence vs. Karma
You’ve cast a dark shadow over everything that’s been close to you
The only place you’ll be useful in this world is buried in the ground

Grab that bottle tighter it won’t hide your secrets
You can drown your sorrows but that won’t kill your demons
He’s coming back

With our heads pressed to the pavement we’ll never make a sound
One day you’ll be gone and we’ll make it out (we’ll make it out)

We refuse to end up like you
Only a coward holds hostage all they should hold dear
You worthless, atrocious excuse for a man
Failing all you do is less of an embarrassment
What a thrill it must be for you to watch everyone suffer
In a cold room void of respect home of your sick agendas
We’ll be out the door matches in hand to burn down the roof that held us captive

We’ll press your head to the pavement so you’ll never make a sound again
And rid this world of filth
There’s no reason to hide anymore
The sun will shine brighter than ever before

We would bid you farewell but we won’t acknowledge we cared for you

Your legacy won’t pass on
Memories left burnt in the rubble
With a grin on our face and shovels in hand
We lay you down for good
We’ll bury you a mile deep with a grave marked unknown x5
Track Name: A Glass Half Empty is a Life Full of Regrets
I know you’re wrong with your expectations
But I hope that I’m just dreaming
Another mistake of your judgment pulls us further apart
Why should I make you a better offer to stay around
I had a feeling we were going nowhere but now I see it
Will this be remembered as the end of us or my great escape?

And then you left me here a shell of a man
I did all I could to keep you here
I’m not saying I’m done
But I see nothing here worth fighting for

Worth fighting for, no
Even after all the grief we’ve felt
This all ends with a smile
Let go
This is it this is where it all ends
It’s not a secret now I’ll do better than you

I know you have no time on your hands
Why does it matter if I’m worth it?

And then you left me here a shell of a man
I did all I could to keep you here
I’m not saying I’m done
I’m accepting this, lost believe in us
Just say you’ve had enough

Anything worth loving is worth fighting for
Worth fighting for
I know you’re wrong
Track Name: Ripley’s Nightmare
Seek to destroy all they’ve created
A world of lies and fabrication
It makes me sick to see you think you need to be just like them
Stealing innocence, breeding ignorance
Pin up dolls with plastic faces confusing love and admiration
For a distorted feeling of self-worth that rots away their namesake
The cameo appearance of a lifetime
An obsession that formed regression of a young mind

Don’t let their lies pull you away from yourself
You have all that you need don’t listen to anyone else

It’s sad to see everyone believe they’re entitled to everything
Your heart will tell you what is real
They only see your innocence as something they can steal

I don’t want to see you stuck in a day dream that leaves you drowning
Close your eyes and slip away to a dim lit room that’s colored in arrogance
Letting a faint voice guide you
As you wake the leeches have a hold
They thirst for your faults to fill their egos
Don’t let them control you
Only the blind can say they’ve seen true beauty
Not tainted by a world that’s lost its senses

Don’t let their lies pull you away from yourself
You have all that you need don’t listen to anyone else

It’s sad to see everyone believe they’re entitled to everything
Your heart will tell you what to feel
They only see your innocence as something they can steal

Don’t let their lies pull you away from yourself
Don’t listen to anyone else
Track Name: What’s Past is Prelude
You wash off the scars regardless of the outcome
Where were you when this all started?
Was it better not to take this chance?
Is not fighting for your dreams a concept you could live with?

All these days might haunt you for the rest of your lifetime
Don’t be afraid the wounds you gained are proof you lived through

Whether a heart or a hole they’re all just one in the same
If you don’t fill them with substance
You’ll suffer when they cave
Make a promise to yourself that you’ll always believe so you can look back
And tell the stories of how you lived your dreams
Live your dreams

All these days might haunt you for the rest of your lifetime
Don’t be afraid the wounds you gained are proof you lived through
We all need a way out sometimes but if you jump too much
You’ll run out of rope to climb

When you’re sick of it all just remember you’re meant for something
Make a promise to yourself that you’ll always want to believe
So you can look back and tell the stories of how you lived your dreams

All these days might haunt you for the rest of your lifetime
Don’t be afraid the wounds you gained are proof you lived through
Track Name: If Only I Could Learn to Swim
Do you remember that day back in the winter, young and afraid
When you took my hands and told me everything, everything would be okay

With every step you walk away
An ocean falls to take its place
And I am losing confidence
I am losing confidence

The tides are strong between us
Holding an ocean full of secrets
Keeping us apart is a fear of the depths
My heart could sink to
And all I know is a world by your side
And all I know is a world that’s gone

With every step you walk away
An ocean falls to take its place
And I am losing confidence
I am losing confidence
With every step you walk away
An ocean falls to take its place
And I am losing confidence
I am losing

There’s a weakening in my knees
A heart that feels every beat
As I look into your eyes for the very last time
You’re taking a part of me
There’s a weakening in my knees
A heart that feels A heart that feel s every beat
As I look into your eyes for the very last time
You’re taking a part of me
