Track Name: Toxic
I'm standing so close that it pulls me in
the world I love isn't all it used to be
so what the fuck
would it take to be free? I dunno
when every word we fight for we never wrote

and there are beasts out there that dont want you to dream
there are vampires that take your heart from everything
now you're a weight on the world that fears sympathy
I'm fucking scared man, that we are never going to grow

who would you call insane
a man with nothing, that knows the gift of today
or the man with everything, that hopes tomorrow will go his way

all I know is
a heavy heart will ground the biggest wings
what do we know of happiness
we're told to want it but never give

I've gotta bear it like I'm brave I'm
not all the years I built a burden on my soul
I will tear into my inside
and stitch the wound in me where I forgot to live

I'm standing so close that it pulls me in
the world I love isnt all it used to be
so what the fuck
would it take to be free? I dunno
when every word we fight for we never wrote

and there are beasts out there that dont want you to dream
there are vampires that take your heart from everything
dont let them turn the world without your own beliefs
you could be the heart that changes everything
Track Name: Conscious
I only wonder
everything that we could be
when all it takes to hold us back
is this god damn world

do you lie awake
faced with delusional decay?
or do you concede it all to fate?

to the conditionally blind
we're all basking in the light
'but we're just beasts in denial'
argues the animal inside

so as you lie awake
battle this wretched place
ask whose the holder of your faith

you couldn't tame it once you've had a taste
it's the savagery that outlives confine
an ego stapled to the mind, the misfortunate divide
another cripple, a product of our time

cause you're the owner of your mind
cause you're the owner of your time

theres no life where you can elude
the paralytic consume
that no ones controlling you
you're just a submissive fool

if we sharpen our teeth we'll survive till the sunrise
if we sharpen our teeth we'll be here for the sunrise
Track Name: Fodder
Little man with his open eyes
little man with his empty mind
taught to believe all that he's told

now a man with some tired eyes
now a man with a jaded mind
that's been broken, twisted, lied to, cheated
by every other little man

we're all burning under the same sun
well I'm done

hold your dreams they will burden the dark
(they will carry me)
loose your fears into giants arms
(they will carry me)

we're all burning under the same sun
well I'm done

oh little man,
there's a fear that I bleed
where a life that we've lived
is never loved by me
Track Name: Dark Wings, Dark Words
Cause I've been waiting I've been waiting on the world
to deliver me with every single turn
but when you're holding onto things for far to long
your letting go of everything you learned

well I was always I was always open armed
and blind to every demon that I met
but with this reflection that I unwind
I must find myself as tireless as time

we're all waiting the world to come crashing down
empty souls with lifeless dreams
but that's a side of this life that you dont need to see
hang your sorrows onto me
there's a numbness inside that's sinking in clarity
its all that I have to keep me from giving in

and I will be your brightest

its the heartache that waits for us in the dark
chasing lives that fell apart
its desire that waits for us to fall apart
clinging to igniting hearts

inside the sun?
I know I'm not the only one

and I will be your brightest

inside the sun?
I know I'm not the only one
Track Name: Climbers
Stuck in the ground in the undershadow of a tree
there was a seed with the rest of the world underneath
'why cant I see all the things up there you get to see?'
I'm Guilty

Although I'm tall I am nothing to the feathers
'if I stay here then I'll never see the weather
and I believe that the view up there can be for me
now I've seen you were once hidden like me'


I never saw my feet become the ground
thanks to the ones I kept around
our deadbeat minds cross border lines
chasing the good life

all the makeshift beds cradle thumping heads

this ain't fantasy
this is family
when the days get to heavy
they are the ones that carry me

this ain't fantasy
this is family
it's a love you couldn't sever
we stand together

when I carry a torch
deep down in memory lane
back to when life was fading away

I was a destructive kid
who heard tales of ambition
we weren't getting off that midnight street
where I prophecised freedom
I thought I'd wait for the end
'its just death, it will one day save me'

where would I stand now
if all your lives were gone
all I fear is the end

this ain't fantasy
this is my family
they are the ones that carry me

this ain't fantasy
this is my family
and we'll always be brothers
for the days you gave me
Track Name: Boneshaker
What can I fear?
I survived everything that tried to take me
every thought thrown my way that tried to miss shape me

Without
the ones in there that tried to break me
where's the will to set my mind higher than the sky?

what if
what if
what if I stay hungry
we'll make a man that wont look down

can we
can we
rebuild our frame of mind
we fear a heart that beats to loud

can I thank the things that did sink me
only from the bottom could I strive to be greater

can I
thank the ones that tried to save me
these feet are wings for chasing things that I've only seen in dreams

if I followed the footsteps you laid me
put my faith in a world of complacency
oh the best days are never behind me
cause I'll chase everything that I love

if I followed the footsteps you laid me
would we make a man that wont look down?
all the best days are never behind me
cause my heart is one that beats so loud

don't shed a tear for me
I'll find a life for every dream
and the greatest dream I've found
is standing alone in every crowd
Track Name: Dreamchaser
Let it all out
cause you've bottled up an empty self
with false reflections benefiting a stunted growth

let this life in
why breathe if you do not love
but I know inside, inside its cold
it's always so fucking cold

you're just a boy in this big wide world whose waiting
to crawl back to nothing

insanity without clarity
is just another day your head says no
a wasted youth left to dilute with the other aimless

you're just a boy in this big wide world whose waiting
to crawl back to nothing

you're just a boy in this big wide world whose waiting
to crawl back to nothing

oh greatness become me

so nows your chance
happiness is in letting go
directionless doesn't matter if you're still taking steps

so lift your head up
before your eyes is a chance to grow
you'll outlive life if you never fear yourself
just be

an open mind when the world says no
an open arm when the world says no
an open ear when the world says no
stop listening when the world says no

its alright to feel broken
you will see better days

still the world moves on
and it could slip through your fingers
if you wait for it to come

still the world moves on
and it could slip through your fingers
if your facing it alone
