Track Name: Norman S.D
Oh my fucking god
is my life even close to a failure
well I cant accept this

with everything i know
now you've opened up to me
my scratches heal under your scars

from the depths below
you've arisen the ocean that swallowed
your pure your existence

a struggle for that breath of life
with no reason to get up
just leave them all behind

and I thought I'd seen it all at 23
there'd be nothing new to me
just the same shit life gave me

you've opened every door Norman
just once we live this life
and I cant bear to just get by

How could I survive your fucken enemies
when it takes so much less to defeat me
you showed me life though your barely alive
how could I let this world consume me
the way it destroyed you

this is the end of bitterness
every wasted thought of emptiness
time wont wait for me to find my happiness
what we cannot bear removes us from this life

and I am nothing until I become Love
Track Name: Victim
If I could
I'd take your pain
and put it all on me

If I could
I'd lift the weight of life
and set you free
If I could put it all on me

to fear yourself
and all the beauty within your mould
then you'll find you heart when life stares you down
and you can stand tall on you own

But lean on me
while your lost in this palace
I'll fill the emptiness inside yourself
thats searching for some comfort
I will love you at your darkest

If I could
I'd take your pain
and put it all on me

If I could
I'd lift the weight of life
and set you free

Theres so much in this world
that you are just not meant to be
If only I could set you free

from the pain you feel inside
let it be
cause I need you here with me

Where is you heart?
sinking in this shallow mess
stuck inside the stranger you showed
to your fucken demons

Well your not alone
embrace me and I will take
everything that hurts inside
before you could ever
sever every helping hand

If I could
I'd take your pain
and put it all on me

If I could
I'd lift the weight of life
and set you free

Theres so much in this world
that you are just not meant to be
If only I could set you free

If I could see your face
tell me 'its all ok
im tired of this life im dreaming away'

then I will take your hand
we'll live alone instead
its better than the lie your living

dont let them take this life from you
Track Name: Baby Steps
Tell me
are you over being just empty?
cause theres so much here that you cant see
lifes not as hard as youd like it to be

broken hearts that never mend in this life
where do I begin on dreams that, that could never live
cause we're tied down to our mistakes

so what if this isn't everything we wanted
you'll still see the sun light up that fucken sky
and we can drink tonight until we're so fucken useless
we save ourselves

from ever watching life pass by
and slowly see time take all we have inside
everything we love we must never forget why
give me the chance to see just one more night

I never wanted more
than those I keep close to me
when did it get so serious
that we fall further behind

with all these thoughts
we carry with us
tiptoe on wounds
that will never heal
obsessed with all
that we cannot be
when we have everything we need
to keep us

from ever watching life pass by
and slowly see time take all we have inside
everything we love we must never forget why
give me the chance to see just one more night

so what if this isnt everything we wanted
you'll still see the sun light up that fucken sky
and we can drink tonight until we're so fucken useless
we save ourselves from ever watching life pass by
Track Name: We Lived
And I've tried so many times
to find the right way I should go
And I've seen so many lives
that never ever find their home

I've been searching for a reason
that keeps me on my feet
I've been searching for that feeling
that puts my mind at ease

I've been good and I've been bad
and I've been all that I can be
I've been nothing I've been no one
it never changes anything

I've had the ones I love stand by my side
and never stand by me
and love itself torn from my heart
but Ive broken many dreams

love itself torn from my heart
but ive broken many dreams

Ive cried so many tears
for those who never saw today
that I will never waste a second
in a million fucken years

I've been holding onto nothing
but some girls I left behind
everyday I cant remember
came from a night that changed my life

I love this fucken world
for giving every chance to me
because I opened my eyes
I've seen things you'll never see

I've been waking up on cold floors
in a place that I dont know
and when im almost 40
I'll have nothing that I own
but at least we lived
Track Name: Keep Walking
Suddenly theres nothing in this world
that matters much to me
than the ones who spend their days
standing next to me

cause I found out I'm exactly
where I want to be
passed out on your floor

I cant feel yesterday
but from the sky this beat tears through me
the girls from wall to wall
sing along with us
cause everythings alright

so dont bring me down
cause this world is all that I have
and all that I need
is to keep walking to take off the edge
just dont bring me

anything that sets a state of misery
just isolate the real world from the rest of me
cause I dont wanna feel
the real world let me down

her smile it brings me to my feet
but who are you?
we'll go one more round

so dont bring me down
cause this world is all that I have
and all that I need
is to keep walking to take off the edge
so come dance with me
and we'll forget this life
just dont bring me down

I've seen this heartbeat miss a thousand times
and I'm still feeling fine
and when this world gets cold
I think about the times I felt alive
the times we felt alive

I try so hard to wake up and see the sun


so dont bring me down
cause this world is all that I have
and all that I need
is to keep walking to take off the edge
so come dance with me
and we'll forget this life
just dont bring
Track Name: These Anchors
When did our dreams
become this fucken hard?
you feel the weight of it all
when its coming from the ones you would die for

sometimes it feels you beleive again
when you could only see the end
but with every smile that I once showed
came two tears I cant forget

we're pulling at the seems again
this should never feel like home
cause I used to have so much less back then
now I cant even look forward

I'm a beleiver we got lost in the bright lights
of all we ever wanted this to be
but its not me

and I cant be this self destruction

these anchors kept me grounded
now they just hold me down

but these boys were my heart for so many years
they gave me a life that was better than my own
fuck everything that tears us into
anything less we used to be

where is the love we once used to feel
how long can we see this through?
Track Name: Saints
Can I wake up before these days are gone?
the life i'm missing I feel so fucken hopeless
I cant keep pushing forward
when my minds two steps behind me
been staring at the ceiling
wating to slip away

save me save me
from all the days I crawl through on my knees
how can I be anything
when the ground underneath wont hold my feet

and I beg and I scream
to find clarity in all I see
these days become so distant
that real life feels dead to me

I've been bringing myself to break
for years I've been lying here
hoping you'll come and save
these fading days

But one day
i'll be better than before
Believe me
I'll be something they adore
Just one day
these times will be forgotten
I'll feel no pain
I wont be carrying this curse

when theres no one above
that you could ask for answers
who would you ever want to turn to

after all im the one that I trust in
to get me out of this hell that I'm living
im lead by desperation

stronger through no fear of failing
cause I want it so much more
just give me something to beleive in
cause I've gotta keep beleiving

that one day
i'll be better than before
Believe me
I'll be something they adore
Just one day
these times will be forgotten
I'll feel no pain
I wont be carrying this curse

give me strength cause I just wanna be free
from all that seperates me
it's all for the love of life
and your nothing but a killer in me

theres no saints where you belong
cause they're watching over me
Track Name: Flog A Dead Gifthorse
Can you tell that I'm searching for
the best things in me
living life seems like chasing a memory
could I be that
can i be that strong now

to regroup through the insecurity
understand I'm chasing my enemy
to forget that
dont forget its my turn now

but how can we start again
when we've already seen the end
the things that fail inside of me
because I wanted more

to beleive in the feet that are under me
to take me the places I want to be
Just remember that theres
nothing in this world worth doing alone

I cant pretend I dont care anymore

How can we start again
when we've already seen the end
the things that fail inside of me
because I wanted more
I want it all

I've been, I've been down before
but never again
why should we fight just to feel alive?
I've been, I've been down before
but never again, never again
will my soul desire to leave this world

fighting through the tears
we'll find the greener grass
under who we're supposed to be

its not enough to be someone
cause I'd give it all
to be me again
Track Name: Amends
You only notice things you love
when you've thrown them away
despite the lies you tell
life just aint fucken the same

everything that we've accomplished
every thought we've betrayed
turns our life around
when this world mentions your name

with every breath we take in stride
with every truth a thousand lies
with every day we walk outside
we're living gunshy

and all those others that meant nothing
but another wasted second
when we know that theres something if we like it or not

when all
i know
is gone

you and me were betrayed
betrayed by our own existence

you burn me to succeed
survive this lie we lead
cause one day everything
will be all we want it to ever be

so put life inside of me
make me the way I used to be

Whats inside me?
whats inside you?

the presence of absence
is taking the life out of me
we live in resignation
afraid we lack infinity

the time we've wasted
ignoring the call of reality
to be reminded of the times
we felt alive

whats inside me?
whats inside you?
Track Name: Fly Safe
Until we feel again
everything is lost
we've become nothing
but wasted fucken lives

erase me
and everything I am
thats breaking
all you have inside

she loved every little piece of you
a world as bright as hers never deserved this
how could I let my whole life let you down?

It kills every little piece of me
to let her go and leave behind the best of me

but i've broken her heart
to many fucken times before
give me patience cause its not in my soul
for years I promised you would never feel alone

but im becoming every tear
that fills those nights she never dreams
she's dying inside just to keep me close
but I cant watch her lose herself

but she's the closest I'll have to home

he could only bring the end of this
again and again and again
your just a fucken coward man,
you'll be begging for her skin again

and if she only wanted his last days
he should have been where she stood by him
you've given up on everything
she'll be the one that haunts you

but im becoming every tear
that fills those nights she never drams
she always has been every thought
that shines on me when I get lost
everything I'd give to keep her close
but I cant watch her lose herself
Track Name: June 19
And im so sorry
that everything was taken away from you
these short lives leave the saddest faces

so far removed
from all that made sense until yesterday
how quick this world can feel so empty

broken dreams
like the one in the corner of your eye everyday
I hope your never gonna think
that you failed on these kids

So many words
I could say
from the bottom of my heart
that can never dry an eye

but from his breaking heart
you hear his screams
'they've taken them from me
they've taken them from me'

and in one shattered day
you see his world empty into tears
empty into tears
with no warning

can only fill the days with mourning
in the arms of photo frames
we're all running from an empty grave
but you stand in the coldest place
and it takes all that you have
not to break


Im so sorry that these lives were taken away from you

If life can suffer heartache
then it gave it all to you
when both hearts stopped beating on the same day

If you hold onto everyone
whose still there by your side
you'll have everything to pull through this one day

You'll find nothing in heartache
but a wish for better days
when both hearts we're beating on the same day

If you can live through every tear
you'll find theres light in the darkest place
