Track Name: My Dying Life
I am the disgusted piece of dirt on the floor
that won't let you fall
won't let you fall down
You are the angel that holds me up
You scare me when you die
When you die

*This circle that we run
Is bending and breaking
This circle that we build
Is dying
This is my fate
This is my destiny
In this mud that I walk through
This is my life
This is my dying life

Save the feeling you have right now
It's going down
That color that bleeds
Bleeds right down your leg
I have just killed it all
There are times
When I want to
Spit it out
Bleed it out

*

This perfect circle you spin
Shiny and new
Cracked and torn
This circle you spin
This perfect circle you spin
This perfect circle you spin

*
Track Name: Designated Killer
It's the darkness that hurts the most
Maybe because I'm lost
Asleep on piles of leaves
The raspy voice of night
I've lost my need to fight

*I'm a designated killer
Knifer of my own dreams
Stabbing at my wounds
Bleeding on my knees
I'm a designated killer

Snow covers me like a quilt
Boxes of my shame sewn together
The fear I've always felt
But one day I'll struggle and be alive
Away from my deathly straps Breathing more than just lost fire
And using my last breath

*

Afraid to look on into the black-blue sky
I'm waiting for myself to die

It's the darkness that hurts the most

*
Track Name: The Taker
My hands are melting away
You have this power over me
I can never have the feeling
I will never see the sun rising
The way it did for you that day

I am the taker
You are what I bleed
In the fires
I find what I need

Just tell me the reason behind it all
You have the answers that I need
What I was supposed to be
You have this power over
over me

I am the taker
You are what I bleed
In the fires
I find what I need

This little dream in my hand
How the world was supposed to turn
How my eyes were supposed to see

I am the taker
You are what I bleed
In the fires
I find what I need
That was the beginning
And now this is the end
This is slowly crashing down on me
Crashing all around me
Track Name: Release Me
Release Me

If I can't remember your name
And I can't see your face
In darkness I feel
I can't remember
I can't describe this
This wholly lonely feeling
Don't leave me alone
Don't leave me alone

Breakin through and the river runs
Above the screams that I have become
Release me
Release me
Rip all and the color flows
End this life that I've ever known
Release me
Release me

To end this life that's been given to me
To start again and try to relive the past
Clean up and start again
Fill me up and start again

Breakin through and the river runs
Above the screams that I have become
Release me
Release me
Rip it all and the color flows
End this life that I've ever known
Release me
Release me

Don't leave me alone

*
Track Name: Drag You Down
Looking through these eyes of mine
The sun turns grey
No good, no evil
no night, no day


*Go away from me
run so far
don't let me drag you down

And these arms that
grab you tight
I try to hold on to life
It's all slipping away
slipping slowly away
Living just to breath

*
Track Name: Black Hole
We came from
This dark abyss
This rolling thunder
And this crying rain

In the darkness
In the shadows
In the light
BEneath the sunrise
The blood falls down

*The big black hole
Keep walking 2x

Whenever we stopped here
this giant wall
the ocean opened wide
lost in the silver tide
Crushing feelings
Beaten reasons
all trying

BEneath the sunrise
The blood falls down

*The big black hole
keep swimming 2x

Keep looking for the end of the story
The end of the beginning
the end of it all

Breathing slowly
And sleeping deeply
Track Name: Bleed
Blue skies remind me
Blue eyes crying sweet nothings
I have tasted the evil
In your blood
Echoes Remind me
It's time to...

*Red Paint drying on my wrists
In my eyes
These dying feelings I still deny
I'm bleeding
The thoughts that scare me at night
I'm bleeding
happiness that you provide
It's leaving me

Such pretty little wings
Flying in the red light
The sun bleeds out the sky
The sound of your body crashing
feel the heat
the sun bleeds out the sky

*

delusional
I've been waiting for this moment all these years

Run for the fires
Run for your life
Keep the secrets I hold
Keep the lies


Smells like dirt again
Dirt you carry in your soul
Track Name: You Will Believe
If this was the end of the universe
Big Blasts in the sky
Would I run to you
Would I say goodbye?
I just pray to die

* In this darkest of days
In the brightest of lies
You will believe all I say
In this darkest of days
In the brightest of lies
You will believe all I say

Look at my eyes
And listen to these words
I will protect you forever
I will keep you alive

* In the darkest of days
In the brightest of lies
You will believe all I say
In the darkest of days
In the brightest of lies
You will believe all I say

In the final hours
While I run to the sun
I will keep you alive
Tomorrow we die

*In this darkest of days
In the brightest of lies
You will believe all I say
In this darkest of days
In the brightest of lies
You will believe all I say
You will believe
You will believe
All I say
Track Name: Rain
Rain
by Jacinda Espinosa

In the red rain
My best meaning falling down, I know
it's what I need.
In the red rain
I can almost taste your blood, feel it on my skin

And she said
"The world is falling down like broken glass"
Our heads, upturned, will find the worst of it
before the night is done.
I'll take my chances out amongst the worst of them.
The king will have his crown, and I'll be shattered once again.

Hear the red rain
Trickling like waterfalls and forcing every breath
In the red rain
She's holding out her hands and I am singing once again.

These dreams are running down, down, down, down,
They're my last chance to give you
One more trick to remember me by.
I think you need me too and
I'll be holding my breath
These dreams of ours will crack and never be the same.
