Track Name: Stillborn
I've seen my family push me away
Was it the memories that kept me here
They say what doesn't kill you will make you a man
That sounds like a fool's prophecy
That you bought into wholeheartedly
And to my family, my dear family I've seen you push me away
I never thought about my past to determine my present course
Its amazing how much one can love something just to throw it away
At 23 you have no idea how far you can really fall
Or how disconnected you can become
But I taught myself fast
Because its only after we've lost everything you're free to do anything
I'll see you at the bottom of everything
Year after year we'll grow farther
After all I've done for you
Track Name: No Blood Loss
As I slip just a little bit further away. I want one more day.
I don't need a statue or reference to fame. Its not the same.
Dear family the pain that I have caused. Runs deep in your flaws.
No matter how long that you are gone, you're gone.
Friends and foes, because they're all the same on your deathbed
All alone I think you'll take the company
Son stay awake don't be afraid it wont be so long
Listen to your heart for when it stops beating
And I forgot how to sleep and I don't think I'll find morning
Who will watch you die
I will watch you die
I've never gone back that far, never been back that far, one day we'll waste away
I've never been back that far, she said that one day we'll all waste away
Track Name: Paper Cut Outs
This vacation is over now get your life together
You're a failure
Expectations are a means to judge your maturity
I expect nothing
No Control over spiralling addictions I hope you find happiness
At the end of your line
With every breath that you inhale a little more of your defeat
Do you think that ship has sailed some time ago
And you lost the ability to see reality
There is a difference between your optimism
And your ignorance with situations when
They don't always work out in your favor
And yet somehow you're always falling short
You're a failure
Where there is no one
Don't drag me down
I'm done believing that one day you will change
You've spend a long time praying to your god
So go ahead and pray to your god
