Track Name: Out of Reach (Demo)
Back here where I started.
Rebuild all that I once had.
When I look around me,
They make things seem so easy.

As I try to get back up, no matter how many times, life
Pushes me back down.
And I know I try, but I reach for the stars, yet
They still leave me.

When life takes the ones that you love, and
Makes you insecure,
You never know what will come tomorrow.

Will they be by your side, or
Leave you all alone?
Just like everyone else did in the past.

People say pain makes you stronger,
But I feel weaker everyday.
My body is breaking, my mind never rests
Just to fulfill someone else's dream.

And I'm tired of caring when care never showed it's face to me.
Track Name: Rotting (Demo)
Verse 1
Life decays as I sit and I watch these
Walls crumble that guard my insecurities.
All the things that seem to make me stronger
Are the same things people use to bring me down.

Give and give my soul 'till it’s empty.
Never get a single thing in return.
I’m sick and tired of all these goddamn
Backwards, one-sided expectations.

I’m DONE clinging to all these
SHACKLES that drive me down.
If you didn’t wanna be around,
You should’ve never bothered talking to me in the first place.

Chorus:
You can lie. You can pry my soul away from me,
But when it’s time to give back, all you give me is shit.
I’ve only wanted to make you all happy,
But now there’s no one left to trust.
GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY LIFE!

Verse 2
ALL the lies that you hide behind your
“Friendship”, really just association.
I give everything that I am,
But then again, who ever asked me for anything?

It’s the end of the line for me and I think that its time to
END IT ALL.
There’s nothing left for me here but
SORROW, nightmares and fear.

Chorus
You can lie. You can pry my soul away from me,
But when it’s time to give back, all you give me is shit.
I’ve only wanted to make you all happy,
But now there’s no one left to trust.
GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY LIFE!

END
And now it’s time.
And now it’s TIME.
AND NOW IT’S TIME.

And now it’s time to fucking die.
All the idiots calling me, telling me I’m their friend.

It’s destined for me to be alone.
Watch the flesh peel away from my bones.

If you really ever cared, you have a shitty way of showing it.
BETRAYING ME, FUCKING ME, RAPING MY EMOTIONS.

I should have seen it right from the start:
You’re all the fucking same, you never cared about me.

All I ever wanted was to give and give,
Now I say goodbye to all emotion.

I leave behind an empty shell
To be forgotten and left for the flies.

DIE!
I FUCKING HATE YOU!
Track Name: Escape From Reality (Demo)
Verse 1:
Pain pulsing through my veins
As you hold the reigns.
Take me through this
The way you promised me.

Lies are spread and tears are shed
As we struggle through a world that's in your head.
We deny it, yet we build it.
Keep sitting there as we tear the walls down.

We decide whether
You live or die.
Devalued and stripped of honor,
Now is our time to rise.

Ever ringing
Echoes of shame.
One day we'll prove our worth,
With the struggle and the sweat you lack.

Chorus:
You won't enslave us
To your fantasy.
We have our own dreams.
I'll find my way through
WITH OR WITHOUT YOU.

Verse 2:
Face shrouded by the cloud,
Never knowing what
We're fighting against
Or how to be set free.

I'm sorry if I'm full of negativity,
But I only give what the world spits at me.
I will not be silenced.
See now what you created.

Desperate, hopeless,
Gasping for air.
Giving up our thought for sancture,
Just to ensure that we survive.

All those days
I'll never get back.
Youthfulness is forever wasted,
All so you can sit on your ass.

Chorus:
You won't enslave us
To your fantasy.
We have our own dreams.
I'll find my way through
WITH OR WITHOUT YOU.

Breakdown:
You can't take away our spirits!
You can't take away our souls!
We all have opinions
To which we will uphold.
Track Name: New Beginning (Demo)
Intro:
All these years I’ve been so blind.
Let the world slowly consume me.

We both fell apart,
Now let’s rebuild ourselves together.

I know the good outweighs the bad and
I won’t give these memr’ys up.

I’m waiting here for you
Just give me one more chance
Like I gave you.

Verse 1:
All these times, all these adventures that we’ve had
Hold a place in my heart that I can’t hide.
I know these things could be done with someone else,
But never would it feel the same.

We’ve grown with each other together,
Discovering new things and overcoming the battles.
Each doing things in our own way,
Fascination in the way the other thinks.

We let other things cloud our minds
That should have never affected the other.
I was lost, you were lost, we were drowning,
But neither of us knew that we needed to be saved.

Chorus:
Trust me that I can trust in you
And with this, I swear we’ll make it through
All the shit that life throws in our way.
We’ve both made mistakes we cannot change.

But when it seems the light begins to fade,
And there’s no hope for us to rise,
Just remember that I will always try
To make sure this love will never die.

Verse 2:
I’m ready to shed my skin,
Leave behind the defiling thoughts,
Start over fresh and never look back.
This time I know what to do.

I’m sure more now than I have ever been
Neither of us really want to let go.
Now let’s get out of this storm
With our heads held up high.

I just wanna be weird with you,
Enjoy all the little things in our lives.
Cause the only thing to me that matters
Is being crazy about you.

*Chorus*

End:
Forget destiny.
Forget alternate possibilities.
It’s you and me against the world.
That’s the only way that it should be.

I’ll be damned if I give up what I love most
So easily.
I’ll be strong for you if you promise
To Be Strong For Me.
Track Name: Silent Screams (Demo)
Lying in the dark
As I stare into the void.

Kept in this shell, I can never
Expel from this hell.

Time to let go, time to give in, both.
Don't let the anger or the sorrow
Find it's way through.

Can you hear the silent screams?
That bring me to my knees?

I'm tired of anger, I'm tired of sorrow,
Just throw it all away.

Don't forget to find and keep
The good things before you throw.

The ones that suffer the most
Are the ones that were given the most happiness.
It's a blessing and a curse.

I can heal up with time,
But I need some comfort right now.
Say there's none to offer right now,
I should have learned its too hard for you to try.

Can't be myself,
Mouth is sewn and arms are tied.

I'm a worm with no place to go
But down into the earth
Where quiet and peacefulness lie.

No happiness to cause me harm.
Track Name: Divulge
Verse 1:
Trapped in the middle of emotion,
Always got the feeling I’m dying inside
Every time that I remember
What your selfish lust had put me through.

All the lies that spread
IN MY HEAD
Took root inside my mind. All the failures over time
Almost turned me into a monster with no hope of return.

You had your use to me
Now get THE FUCK OUT OF MY HEAD.
You made me stronger. Find all the flaws that
Almost got the best of me.

Chorus:
Carry out your selfish intentions.
You’ll find out it won’t get you anywhere.
I’ll be there to watch you go up in flames.

Verse 2:
GHOSTS keep haunting me,
Faint presence, but always looming over.
Hidden behind your invisible walls,
You flaunt your presence without fear of an attack.

I know everything, you might say there wasn’t anything,
But it’s not in the actions, its only in the intent.
ALL WE HAVE IS OUR MINDS.
You tried to poison one with underhanded tricks and easy ploys.

Everything I have, everyone I know
I had to work hard to get until I bled.
But here you come, looking for an easy way in.
Only mistake, you tried to take what’s most precious to ME.

Chorus:
Carry out your selfish intentions.
You’ll find out it won’t get you anywhere.
I’ll be there to watch you go up in flames.

Interlude:
We all have our breaking point;
The times we feel the most in need.
Separate problems on both sides.
You interfered, now I hope you DIE.

End:
If I could, I’d bring the pain on you
That you had brought to me.
I’d watch you squirm in anguish
Just to see if you’d survive.

Everyday I ask myself:
How do I make a better self?
While all you do is try to take
Something that you’ll never understand.

I walked into the pits of hell
And came back out alive.
NOW GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY HEAD.
YOU’RE NOT WELCOME ANYMORE.
