Track Name: Feast In Famine
We lost the fight before awakening
We're the children of a fear undying
We're made to be what you don't wanna see
We're the children
We're the children

The tempered teeth
On the horizon
Swallowed all that we slaved for
The taste of tin
The maw it widens
Who could ask for more

Feast in Famine
I knew that we needed war
All but barren
Can't give anymore

We lost the fight before awakening
We're the children of a fear undying
We're made to be what you don't wanna see
We're the children
We're the children

The blatant stare
How they confide in
That you get what you paid for
Nose in the air
We're trampled by them
Yet they ask for more

Can't give anymore

We lost the fight before awakening
We're the children of a fear undying
We're made to be what you don't wanna see
We're the children
We're the children

Feast in famine
All but barren

We lost the fight before awakening
We're the children of a fear undying
We're made to be what you don't wanna see
We're the children
We're the children
Feast in famine
We're the children of a fear undying
All but barren
We're the children
We're the children
Track Name: Our Hands
Carrying the weight of resentment
Marrying the idea we can be...
Saved from it

We built our walls inside
All our homes and our lives
But with our hands we can scale this wall
Bridge divides

Burying our minds in a chamber
Harmony can't be without each other

We built our walls inside
All our homes and our lives
But with our hands we can scale this wall
Bridge divides
We built our walls inside
All our homes and our lives
But with our hands we can scale this wall
Bridge divides

Scale this wall, bridge divides
Scale this wall, bridge divides

We built our walls inside
All our homes and our lives
But with our hands we can scale this wall
Bridge divides
We built our walls inside
All our homes and our lives
But with our hands we can scale this wall
Bridge divides
Track Name: Dissolve
The sand is seeping in
Your half an hour glass
You had to know you weren't meant to last
Your thread is spreading thin
It's fraying at the ends
You can only prolong, but never mend
Time is on your side
But its not our design
Like your life its meant to run out

Ignore the end you face
Though your time is small
In a moment
We all dissolve

The hands are ticking on
They're inching ever close
Tentatively wrapped around your throat
The arms you won't escape
Just when you think you know
The clock you watch will gladly watch you choke
Time is on your side
But its not our design
Like your life its meant to run out

Ignore the end you face
Though your time is small
In a moment
We all dissolve
We all dissolve
We all dissolve
We all dissolve


We all dissolve
We all dissolve
Your time is small
We all dissolve
In a moment
We all dissolve
Your time is small
We all dissolve
We all dissolve
Your time, your time is small
Track Name: Eyes Will Sink
Needles nick my naked veins
And you thought me sane for a time, girl
Holding onto smoke and flames
Leaving my body behind, girl
I just can't make the time for
A life or a plan or a love or a home
You'll be the death of me
But neither of us seem to mind girl

Overtake me
I'm sedated past the brink
If I never wake my mind will be at ease
Overtake me
In my head my eyes will sink
I'll be chasing highs till nothing's left to bleed

It just seems to numb my brain
If for but a moment in time girl
Sight is distant and delayed
I'm chasing a dream that has died girl

Overtake me
I'm sedated past the brink
If I never wake my mind will be at ease
Overtake me
In my head my eyes will sink
I'll be chasing highs till nothing's left to bleed
Lights fading out on me
I'm slipping in and out of ecstasy
If I never wake my mind will be at ease
Lights fading out on me
I'm slipping in and out of ecstasy
I'll be chasing highs till nothing's left to bleed

Girl, you might be wondering
Are you my cure
Or were you my personal hell?
I know you might be missing me
But girl...
I did this to my...

Overtake me
I'm sedated past the brink
If I never wake my mind will be at ease
Overtake me
In my head my eyes will sink
I'll be chasing highs till nothing's left to bleed
Lights fading out on me
I'm slipping in and out of ecstasy
If I never wake my mind will be at ease
Lights fading out on me
I'm slipping in and out of ecstasy
I'll be chasing highs till nothing's left to bleed
Track Name: Rest Assured
Back to familiar walls
They hold my head straight to view the outside world
The heroes thieves and fools
I prefer my piece of mind that all I know is known

We're always taught it's better still
To lie in bed with your ears ringing
Of glory days of holding still
While better men will die for meaning

Back by a window's warmth
Felt from my head turned on all the outside world
From deep inside a home
I divorced all risk and fear so I'd be safe alone

We're always taught it's better still
To lie in bed with your ears ringing
Of glory days of holding still
While better men will die for meaning

There's no prize for last year's honor

We're always taught it's better still
To lie in bed with your ears ringing
Of glory days of holding still
While better men will die for meaning
better men will die for meaning
better men will die for meaning
Track Name: Hypochondriac (Minding My)
Minding my ghosts makes for much more mediation
Better them than my friends
End up a disappearing act
Minding my ghosts makes for much more mediation
Better them than my friends
End up a disappearing act

Tempted to tame open flame
To burn what is left
Who said we're sane
Made a claim
For our escape

Crack the bruise in my head
Never meddled with my mouth
Much too loud in my mind
Voices never settle down
Hear the holes in my head
Serenading to the sound
Much too loud in my mind
Voices never settle down

Mending my mind makes for much more meditation
Better it than just me
Thinks me a hypochondriac
Mending my mind makes for much more meditation
Better it than just me
Thinks me a hypochondriac
A hypochondriac

Tempted to tame open flame
To burn what is left
Who said we're sane
Made a claim
For our escape

Crack the bruise in my head
Never meddled with my mouth
Much too loud in my mind
Voices never settle down
Hear the holes in my head
Serenading to the sound
Much too loud in my mind
Voices never settle down

All memories seem subject
Scrutinized to all degrees, but
Never mind the certainty
Sanity has less honesty

Crack the bruise in my head
Never meddled with my mouth
Much too loud in my mind
Voices never settle down
Hear the holes in my head
Serenading to the sound
Much too loud in my mind
Voices never settle down
Voices never settle down
Voices never settle down
Track Name: Branching In
Every clinging root
Kept all it's grip on ash and soot
Ignored for ages
Left to the pages
Grasping for breath and thirsting song
Of a familiar face long gone
The garden's image of a god
But holding out on
Better times to come
Deafened the wind and blocked the sun

But shining down on the sand
I couldn't be more glad
To feel the warmth of the sky
I know we had a peace that can't be but...

My limbs and feet
Are grounded beneath the clouded
But before we meet
We'll have shared the air and earth and though,
My limbs and feet
Are grounded beneath the clouded
But before we meet
We'll have shared the air and earth and though,

Every moment gone
Is but another branch that's lost
Swept by the ages
Birds from their cages
Carried on winds that cared for none but
Of a familiar face long gone
The garden's image of a god
But holding out on
Better times to come
Deafened the wind and blocked the sun

But shining down on the sand
I couldn't be more glad
To feel the warmth of the sky
I know we had a peace that can't be but...

My limbs and feet
Are grounded beneath the clouded
But before we meet
We'll have shared the air and earth and though,
My limbs and feet
Are grounded beneath the clouded
But before we meet
We'll have shared the air and earth and sea

My limbs and feet
Are grounded beneath the clouded
But before we meet
We'll have shared the air and earth and though,
My limbs and feet
Are grounded beneath the clouded
But before we meet
We'll have shared the air and earth and sea
Track Name: Samaritan
Chilling wind, choking cold, choking hold on him
Parka closed, buttoned up holding onto little heat
Little heat he needs
Shivering, freezing feet, fainted far from him
As she clings to the street she is faced with all she needs
His own willingness to freeze

If we could hold off forever
Then we would spend all our time
Guessing what happened to the...
Good nature of all our kind
If we could hold off forever
Then we would spend all our time
Guessing what happened to the...
Good nature of all our kind

Chilling wind, choking cold, choking hold on her
Little shirt, shallow lungs, she can only barely breathe
Little breath she needs
Shivering, freezing feet, fainted far from him
Hangs a coat on her frame, shivering, he happily
Makes his way to his own street

If we could hold off forever
Then we would spend all our time
Guessing what happened to the...
Good nature of all our kind
If we could hold off forever
Then we would spend all our time
Guessing what happened to the...
Good nature of all our kind
So I guess I'll start by making more of this life

Could hold off
Hold off forever
Could hold off
Hold off forever
Could hold off
Hold off forever
Could hold off
Hold off forever

If we could hold off forever
Then we would spend all our time
Guessing what happened to the...
Good nature of all our kind
If we could hold off forever
Then we would spend all our time
Guessing what happened to the...
Good nature of all our kind
So I guess I'll start by making more of this life
Track Name: Grief & Ties (ft. Garrett Garfield)
I try and let it all go

Can we pay for our mistakes
With scars and beatings
Can we leave behind my skin
Unwillingly
Pour me out and let me drain
My mind is stinging
Your nestled in my pain
From when

We were young and alive
But I left with a husk of grief and ties

I still feel you in my bones
A broken body with no soul

I understand you never knew
The stain you're leaving
Forever branded a mistake
Unwillingly
You're never gone and never fade
My mind is stinging
Why can't I just forget
That when

We were young and alive
But I left with a husk of grief and ties

I still feel you in my bones
A broken body with no soul
Give me back the life you stole
I try and let it all go
But you still control me
You still control me

Pay for our mistakes
Leave behind my skin

We were young and alive
But I left with a husk of grief and ties

I still feel you in my bones
A broken body with no soul
Give me back the life you stole
I try and let it all go
You won't control me
Track Name: Conscript
Don't breathe, don't misbelieve, don't misinterpret me
Their lives will leave behind a hole in our minds
Don't breathe, don't misbelieve, don't misinterpret me
We find that we can lie when we're all but blind
But I can see

That you're bleeding out on me
And you won't be here by the morning
And we're losing time to speak, but we can't stay here
I will shut your eyes as you leave

Don't leave, don't die on me, don't let the fear succeed
It's time, we are alive if with fading eyes
But I can see

That you're bleeding out on me
And you won't be here by the morning
And we're losing time to speak, but we can't stay here
I will shut your eyes as you leave

You're bleeding out on me
And you won't be here by the morning
And we're losing time to speak, but we can't stay here
I will shut your eyes as you leave
I will shut your eyes as you leave
