Track Name: Facing The Truth
My conscience wields the knife in my back.
You left me fending for myself.
You took all I had.
Are you willing to give up what you hold most dear? Open your eyes.
It's time to face the truth.
I'm not running anymore.
Engulfed in darkness, there lies my soul.
What happened to the things that you said?
The false hopes? The promises?
I never wanted it to be like this.
But you took it too far.
It's time to face the truth.
I'm not running anymore.
Engulfed in darkness, there lies my soul.
When your lies hit the wall, will they paint out what used to be; an honest man?
It's time to face the truth.
I'm not running anymore.
Engulfed in darkness, there lies my soul.
Is this easy for you?
Because it's killing me.
Track Name: The Paradox
I'm ready to fight my battles in new ways,
I'm ready to say goodbye forever,
And though I'm gonna miss the old days,
I've never felt this good, Never!
We're horrible together and terrible apart,
A wonderful contradiction, Lying is your art,
So here's to you my fair weather friend,
We didn't see it coming, But this is how it ends,
I'm ready to fight my battles in new ways,
I'm ready to say goodbye forever,
And though I'm gonna miss the old days,
I've never felt this good, Never!
It's hard to say that I don't miss you,
It's hard to act like I don't care,
Broken promises, Torn up notes,
It's time for me to take a stand,
I'm ready to fight my battles in new ways,
I'm ready to say goodbye forever,
And though I'm gonna miss the old days,
I've never felt this good, Never!
I'm ready to fight my battles in new ways,
I'm ready to say goodbye forever,
And though I'm gonna miss the old days,
I've never felt this good, Never!
Track Name: Integrate In Solitude
I have felt my skin slice into the air.
They perceive only my beckoning.
Each figure that blinds my eyes;
Overwhelming.
Undetermined.
Undefined.
Memories are ending. I watch them all burn away. Plagued in all my senses. I will never be the same.
I tried to see life through a mirror but my reflection never looks back.
I am my worst enemy.
This is not me.
This is a war.
Memories are ending. I watch them all burn away. Plagued in all my senses. I will never be the same.
We breathe the same.
What good is it?
Memories are ending. I watch them all burn away. Plagued in all my senses. I will never be the same.

Track Name: How You Made Me
I'm losing my sight.
I'm not that strong.
You crucify me with your hypocrisy.
I can't see what you've done to me.
I will pray for mercy for how you've made out to be.
I walk down this road and nothing seemed to change.
But then I look back to see that nothing ever stays the same.
I will rise above your lies.
It's time to change.
It's do or die.
Will we learn to see this right?
I know we will.
Someday, somehow.
I'm not a machine.
I have secrets to keep.
I feel I'm being blinded by all these memories.
Can you not hear what you've come to be?
I thought you saw this clearly.
I will walk through this reality.
Passing through reflections I'll never be.
I walk down this road and nothing seemed to change.
But then I look back to see that nothing ever stays the same.
I will rise above your lies.
It's time to change.
It's do or die.
Will we learn to see this right?
I know we will.
Someday, somehow.
I've seen it all too many times before.
I can't believe what you say anymore.
I feel this love is forbidden.
I knew it from the start.
But I keep my faith.
Because it's written in my heart.
I will rise above your lies.
It's time to change.
It's do or die.
Will we learn to see this right?
I know we will.
Someday, somehow.
Track Name: The Paradox (Acoustic)
We're horrible together and terrible apart,
A wonderful contradiction, Lying is your art,
So here's to you my fair weather friend,
We didn't see it coming, But this is how it ends,

I'm ready to say goodbye forever,

I've never felt this good, Never!
It's hard to say that I don't miss you,
It's hard to act like I don't care,
Broken promises, Torn up notes,
It's time for me to take a stand,
I'm ready to fight my battles in new ways,
I'm ready to say goodbye forever,
And though I'm gonna miss the old days,
I've never felt this good...
I've never felt this good...
Never...
