Awake (free) 03:11
Is this all there is? There’s nothing to see A world that asks so much But leaves me worse than empty Is hope still alive In this endless parade? There must be something pure To fill the lonely void of this charade Wake up, Stop pretending This day’s beginning in ending No more blank illusions Your dark dream, Throw it away, A way for survival New day, Bright arrival Take back all that you gave up
2.
If I could start this again One more chance to keep myself from slipping From the beginning to the end Would I face the things that I’ve stopped feeling? Tearing at my mind Still can’t find release Fuck this sore inside my head Wishing I was dead So rip the bandage off And see what’s underneath Picking at the scab Giving me some relief Here lies heaven Here lies hell Both in me In between hope and reason Incomplete But I still can’t find relief So rip the bandage off And see what’s underneath Picking at the scab Giving me some relief

Parasite 02:55
So easy to believe You’re a person with a harmless need You say there’s nowhere to turn So I give to you what you want of me I am your new addiction I am your ultimate friend But now I’ve learned too late The more I give, the more you take Never enough, is it? It’s never enough Never enough, now is it? (Take it away, take it away) Never enough, is it? It’s never enough Never enough You’re feeding from me, you’re feeding from me Now that you’ve taken it all And still come back for more You’ll never realize that You’re nothing but a parasite Never enough, is it? It’s never enough Never enough, now is it? (Take it away, take it away) Never enough, is it? It’s never enough Never enough You’re feeding from me, you’re feeding from me Parasite (Never enough!) Parasite (Take it away!) Parasite (Never enough!) Parasite (Take it away!) Parasite (Never enough!) Parasite (Take it away!) Parasite (Never enough!) Parasite (Take it away!)

Watch the unfolding This growing grey inside Creeping slowly, Silent killer Of all the real things that I hide Such a perfect betrayal, The one within I’m shattered, scattered, And words don’t matter Without a fight I’ve given in Crush this denial, it’s all coming clear Crush this self-loathing that cages me here Crush all the holes that can never be filled Fuck self-destruction and fuck useless guilt Through the empty, Breathing steady, Shed my skin, I’m stripped away Flood my senses, Found my pieces, Give it all to stay this way Feel the silent killer wash away Didn’t know the possible To rebegin I spent so long waiting for an answer That was already there Didn’t know the actual Who I really am I looked so far, thought life was out there But I forgot how to live Through the empty, Breathing steady, Shed my skin, I’m stripped away Flood my sense, Found my pieces, Give it all to stay this way Feel the silent killer wash away Ripped out Stripped out Burned out Crushed out Feel the silent killer wash away

Drifting off to that place between The waking life and the endless dream A tapestry of haunted scenes The memories are calling me When filled with whispers stereo I’d give up everything to know Imagery Troubled dreams Poetry of smart machines, They’ll never know who I am Looking in, Somewhere deep beneath this skin As my world turns inside out, I’ll be here All alone I see more than 0’s and 1’s Can I be who I’ve become? Symphonies surrounding me Take the breath right out of me I’ll never rest Time is fleeting Imagery Troubled dreams Poetry of smart machines, They’ll never know who I am Trying earnestly, Failing miserably, Picking up the past, Learning brilliantly To be loved To be free
6.
Code red in my head Out of control ‘Cause nothing’s making sense I keep telling myself I keep telling myself I keep telling myself I’m just passing through Nothing’s known, What to feel, What to say, There’s no ground, Floating down, Falling fast Sinking in this haze I’ve got nothing to grip So hard to believe I won’t give up the thought That I’m just passing through Just passing through Just passing through Just passing Just passing I’m just passing through I want to feel the ground I wish I knew where it was I need to see something real And I want to know How do I get past ? How do I get past myself?
7.
Cannot speak Paralyzed The more I wait here, The more I die Cannot breathe Suffocate Wanting out because it feels like I am Trapped inside Back again, Closing in No escaping, because there’s no end in sight locked away wanting out because it feel like I am trapped trapped inside trapped inside Cannot speak Paralyzed Wanting out Because it feel like I am Trapped inside In my mind No way out Because it feel like I am Trapped inside I’m trapped inside I’m trapped
8.
Frozen, Two paths in time Waiting For the instant to decide Feel the whole world spinning Choices everywhere One life waiting for me Another over there Wish I knew the answers Thought it’d be so clear What I thought I’d wanted Suddenly right here Standing at the edge How much can I take before I drop into the empty space? The hours are closing in Too late to pull back Too far in between All I see is distance The unknown under me I’m so far I can’t take it anymore I’m not ready, I’m not ready, Keeps pushing me to where I am Standing at the edge How much can I take before I drop into the empty space? The hours are closing in Standing at the edge Nothing left but letting go and dropping into empty space Give up everything I know Standing at the edge How much can I take before I drop into the empty space? The hours are closing in Standing at the edge Nothing left but letting go and dropping into empty space Give up everything I know

Lies 04:23
Emotion, Devotion, Lies Complete me, Believe, But don’t look in my eyes I can’t deny, I can’t deny This lonely, So lonely heart wants more There’s no place for truth When there’s no room for change And empty motions Are all that remain It’s burning me up It’s taking its toll This life here with you That keeps me from being whole I don’t belong here anymore Contain me, Erase me, I’m all used up What can we do now? What can we be now? If we’re undone Don’t hold too tightly, ‘Cause the ending’s coming soon No future No present The past belongs to you There’s no place for truth When there’s no room for change And empty motions Are all that remain It’s burning me up It’s taking its toll This life here with you That keeps me from being whole I don’t belong here anymore Emotion, Devotion, Lies Complete me, Believe me, But don’t look in my eyes I can’t deny I can’t deny I can’t deny There’s no place for truth When there’s no room for change And empty motions Are all that remain It’s burning me up It’s taking its toll This life here with you That keeps me from being whole I don’t belong here anymore

Fading 04:19
So much to tell you With no words to say We live in fear Of losing your light on this day Feel you slipping so far away Watching the could’ve beens Bloom and decay What will break the spell? What will break the spell? Are you so far? Is it too late? Hanging onto the fragile threads of yesterday You are fading, And I can’t let go One last moment And time stands still One last ember of hope to kill Let go, let go, It keeps whispering, But I still can feel what’s left of you Still haunting me What will break the spell? What will break the spell? Are you so far? Is it too late? Hanging onto the fragile threads of yesterday You are fading, And I can’t let go
