Track Name: Born Again
Take back my life, take back my life
this is how I take back my life

We scream these words
we are alive
even though my body's
burning red
I'll sell my soul
I will survive
I just need a place
to rest my head

live for now
brace yourself and make peace with the moment

right now I'm standing at the edge
one breath is all that it takes
one push from you and I'm falling
and I've been grabbing from the bottom of the barrel
of things that I hate
this apathy is my calling

breathing
fresh air is what I need
to find tranquility

dancing around my mind
are visions I can’t find a place for
some empty space in my head
and I will never know
how far this game will go, 'till I
can answer all the questions in my head
I know that you can see
the man that I could be,
but I have denied

This is how i take back my life
To take back my life like its nothing
(my life)
releasing (my life) control like its all new
(my life)
and how it doesn't exist
or was it something i missed
I just can't take this pressure anymore
I know that you don't understand
I know that this is the end

The end
and how it doesn't exist
and i'm perpetually pissed
this is the end
there must be something I missed
that you cannot comprehend
and it's a struggle in my hands
I'm not a martyr, just a man
and if you stall don't understand
I'll take you higher, show you who I am
take you inside
this is the way
that I move on

dancing around my mind
are visions I can’t find a place for
some empty space in my head
and I will never know
how far this game will go
cause I have denied
Track Name: Enter Retrospect
I wouldn't cross the ocean
to find the desert that's in your eyes
we're running away from emotion
and it's no surprise
so what did you want me to say
i saw the devil that's in your eyes
if that’s what you want me to be,
sail away
you're trouble in disguise
if that's what you wanted to see
you brought the battle and I oblige
and that's what had me running away
yesterday
and now I'm here to find
a way

and I would never be
the fucking enemy
I'm gonna make you believe
I'm not the man you one perceived

and i wouldn't cross the ocean
to find the devil that's in your eyes
we're running away from emotion
and it's no surprise

say
what you wanted from me
say
what you wanted from me
say
what you wanted, you wanted from me
say
what you wanted from me

I'll never know
just how it goes
who I wanna be
who I am and who I wanna be
is that what you wanted to see?
and I know that there is something wrong
the past belongs
behind you it's all in your mind
and i know that there is something wrong
the past is gone
it's over it's all in your mind
and I know
how it goes
who I wanna be
who I am and who I wanna be
is that what you wanted to see?

say
what you wanted from me
say
what you wanted, you wanted from me
say
what you wanted from me
say
Track Name: Spit
Roll my eyes
and block out the sound
if i'm back it's without a doubt
roll my eyes
i'm clenching my teeth as
you fucking spit in my face

i am the absolute
path of destruction
you are the obsolete
part of the plan
and through the fire
you are mistaken
i swear I'll never fall again
rise, up, and
never fall again
no luck left

at the end
you'll be running away from me
and i've noticed
you've seen me from the bottom of the bottle
I won't let you in
i won't fall for it again
i can't trust you
and that means too much to me

I let you in
you're drenched in sin
don't drag me down in the wake and
SPIT
pointless words
meant to hurt
won't kill my pride and I know that
I won't let you light my fire
you deserve to burn alone
filled with nothing but desire
you will never earn this home

at the end
you'll be running away from me
and i've noticed
you've seen me from the bottom of the bottle
I won't let you in
i won't fall for it again
i can't trust you
and that means too much to me

you'll understand

I won't let you in
I never wanna see your face again
still think you can win
i tried explaining but you don't understand
honor,
you have none

so keep running your mouth
I see the words are coming out
there's no escape
expectation
quit
Track Name: Mauve Avenger
bless me father for I have sinned
it's been too long since my last confession
preoccupied with questions of morality
I'm not asking forgiveness for what I've done
but for what I'm about to do

I've had enough nightmares where I
thought i Wasn't good enough for you
and all my family was compromised
condemned

my city
my city saves me
I might be insane
to wear a mask like a masquerade
i might be crazy but baby my city
my city saves me
and I'll save my city
cause my city saves me
it. saves. me.

break me down
I fought the king and i took his crown
knock me out now
I've had enough nightmares where I
thought i Wasn't good enough for you
I've had enough nightmares where I
thought i Wasn't good
father I'm a monster
the devil he lives inside
father I'm a monster
the devil he just won't stop

It's something in your mind
it's what you've kept from me
was lost but I'm not blind
this fire's all I see
It's something in your mind
it's what you've kept from me
was lost but I'm not blind
this fire's all I see
all that I see

father I'm a monster
the devil he lives inside
father. monster
devil. just won't stop

the way
the way that I
I will survive

Survive

the way
I will survive
the way
I survive
the way I survive
though you take my
life for granted
I will be okay
Track Name: Exit Wounds
you won't understand
that every struggle
makes us stronger
it's just another distraction
but it's something in the way
we're avoiding destruction
only barely
you won't bend or break
when every second
takes us farther
into a world of malfunction
but we do it anyway
wind us up watch us run
this world that you will break

lay awake
every minute every hour
all the time you waste
I can't wait to
get away
from a state of expectation
to a sweet escape
you will never
know me
i was built to seize the day
show me
nothing that could make me stay
there’s nothing left

I can't believe
all the time I've spent on these
worthless thoughts wishing
that I'd never found them

we'll fight the expectations
we're more
than simple minded patients
in your ward
when running to salvation
we may fall
to see there's nothing left
for us

with all the trees gone dry
there's nothing left but time
with all the trees gone dry
there's nothing left but time

we killed the world
can you see?
can you see?
with no regard
who are we?
who are we?

the same
let you down
won't comply
take your crown
the same
let you down
won't comply
now's the time for us
our day

never let me our cause
this debt will hold me down
a freedom lost in this paradox
it's a trap to make me drown
burn me live yeah
you might as well

you won't understand
that every struggle
makes us stronger
it's just another distraction
but it's something in the way
we're avoiding destruction
only barely
you won't bend or break
when every second
takes us farther
into a world of malfunction
but we do it anyway
wind us up watch us run
this world that you will break

and I will lay awake
with the choices I have made
and do we stand for change?
if we made
the buildings up so tall
than we can burn down
and rebuild it all

let the people
light the fire
we're all so sick of segregation
we'll have the chance to make
a better generation

with all the trees gone dry
there's nothing left but time
with all the trees gone dry
there's nothing left but time

the same
let you down
won't comply
take your crown
the same
let you down
won't comply
take your crown
now's the time for us
now's the the time for us
it's a moment in our lives
we can try
to be better
to be something new
something new

let the people
light the fire
with all the building coming down
and the king has lost his crown
what a pity
the death of a liar
let the people
light the fire
let them
rebuild
