Track Name: Failsafe
Lyrics:
It’s been a real long time, since I had my chance to speak.
So I’m using this one, to encourage those who think they’re weak.

Now we’re here, I didn’t think this day would come, all the morality I heard, yet I see none.
They told me my disillusion was cold obsession, always looking at the top from rock bottom.

Sever your ties to me, it’s something I can’t guarantee, living in this hole that’s somehow home to me.
My hands are shaking got to keep ahead of the game, got to consider the things that keep me sane.

I know, its bad news, but how can you blame me? For doing it again!
Victimless leaders who want to pursue our goals to get more, Let me tell you, we’re worth a lot more.
Victimless leaders who want to pursue our goals to get more, but let me tell you, we’re worth a lot more.
Never going to take this back to a whole new level, to keep your hands filthy with your hollow empty deals, they mean nothing to me.

I know that this could all collapse but I need to keep pace, I need to see what’s next.
We’re worth a lot more and at the end of the day, you won’t be the one who calls the score.
Hope. Seems a distance away but is it too far? For you to see?

Victimless leaders who want to pursue our goals to get more, let me tell you, we’re worth a lot more.
Because I have too many friends, left in regret.
This is a Failsafe, I know it through and through.
We will be known as the ones who act as they do.

At the end of the day, when you’re wasted away and you still have nothing to say?
Hope. Seems a distance away but is it too far? For you to see, if it’s really worth it?
Just go! Take my word, be at peace. Life’s too short, to be expecting grief. It sits in your bones, exposing mental wounds.
Track Name: The Binding
Lyrics:
Heart’s strapped with medals and threads of valour
Momentarily wishing, make peace with the present, cough up the last of the anguish.

You’re tangled in the roots, Streets paved with grey stone, the house you spent time alone.
Buying my time, taking my place in the system, if it’s what you want I’ll run the race.

One of these day’s I won’t wake up, clouded with the name I’ve made for myself
One of these day’s I won’t be left hanging in the balance.

Tangled and swinging the pressure sets in and I’m gone, it’s hard to see, with your eyes sewn shut.
If the grass was greener on the other side just know I would have been there all the time.

Get this jagged knife out of my side, it’s been twitching and tearing my life, to shreds.
The days go by wishing I had the time, I put everything on the fucking line.
Just for a breath of fresh air, just for someone to care.
But you were all too clueless to know what the world worked like.

Have we all been left behind? Take me back to this hell, I call home.
Have we all been left behind? Take me back to this hell, I call home.

Sell your soul! Give it up because you’re fucking out of luck.
Hold your own! What do you expect? When I’m here left in the ditch…
Say your piece! It gets me nowhere but I can write it down at least
Still hanging in the balance, still so weak…

There was no remorse in their eyes, Find your own purpose
See past all this... Someday!
I won’t be there to help you,
No I won’t be there to help you.
Track Name: Anti-Venom
Lyrics:
The hate that I feel, it’s real.
I see an empty soul staring back at me. A lack of sympathy for everyone around me.
I tried so hard to make things right, it’s an endless fight tearing me down.

I could never shed new light, I let it sink in just in spite, like venom running through your veins.

My mind’s been infected with grief, with misery. The pain’s inflicted me…

The hate that I feel, it’s real.
I see an empty soul staring back at me. A lack of sympathy for everyone around me.
I tried so hard to make things right, but I could never shed new light, I let it sink in just in spite.

Taking the same steps back to the source. Never knew how to change the sail’s, never knew how to change course.

You and me, how did I ever think it was going to be? What it did too me… I want you all to see!
That your life’s in the hands of another. I felt it coming for so long, but I never thought I’d be so wrong.
My discomposure it speaks… It shouts so loud. I’m sorry.

My mind’s been infected, with grief, with misery. The pain’s inflicted me, It sit’s with me.

You got it so wrong and now you’re sitting in the corner all alone. It’s your fault. (You knew it)
It was me all along? I know you just wanted me gone! That was always your song.

Know yourself, not your wealth, because everyone seems to see it, but me.

We let it slip away, and I’m filled with dismay today.
Track Name: The Benefit Of Doubt
Lyrics:
Set the scene.
Picture yourself walking away.
From those who gave you everything.
My mistakes, I seen them in you those days.
The one's I want to erase from myself today.

I swear
We won't forget, we won't regret but I will never forgive.
Not over the loyalty I received from those who were there,
All along, no not over pity, you were always wrong.

Stop living this fiction, it's too late.
Open your eyes your life has run away.

I'm ashamed to be the same as the one who left the stain on the blade. It was simple, you're the one to blame.
Now every day I wish away the memory of everything that led me to believe,
This was your personal struggle.
The anchor that held us under, and you think you can't say the same for me?
I tried and this is where it got me.
Still to this day.

Fly through me it's the only thing that I can see.
Hollow bodies empty, floating through the sea of misery.
I can see it in your face, you've been gone for days, away, so give it a break!
All for this personal struggle.
Still to this day.

You persist me.
Through all the years of my life, a shadow in the back of my mind. Plotting your every move, trying to cut me loose.

To embrace your own creation. It's turned its back on you.
You liar, you've left me soulless.

Don't stop. Keep draining the life from your body.
You’ve got to let this go.

There's no time anymore. Close the door.
I know you still have a key, but you keep it from me.
I see your body contorted, yet still wishing for more of what you consider your cure.
