Track Name: Middle Man
You're running out for the last time
No reason to put your life in rewind
Lack the courage to speak your mind again ...again

I will never choose a side
Don't expect me to cross your lines

The weight of the world is in your hands
To carry the message to connect the ends
And all in all, this will never be solved
It will follow you down and follow you around
It's never enough to be the middle man

All the drama you try to create
Pushes everyone you love away
Disconnected, you do your best to drag me down again

Leave me out of your 'tragedy'
Don't run to me for sympathy
Track Name: Pulling Back
Starting to feel enlightened the words they feel so frightening it was almost, almost
Heavy hearted bleeding, this conversation’s heating it’s almost, it’s almost the same

Now you’re pulling me back, pulling me back from everything you wanted
Pulling me back, pulling me back to start again
Pulling me back, keep pulling me back to finish what you started
The cycle never ends, it ends today

My mind begins regression, over this obsession, it was so close, it was so close
Idling in one place to rid myself of your face it was so close that it’s almost the same

Now you’re pulling me back, pulling me back from everything you wanted
Pulling me back, pulling me back to start again
Pulling me back, keep pulling me back to finish what you started
The cycle never ends, it ends today

Now you’re pulling me back, pulling me back from everything you wanted
Pulling me back, pulling me back to start again
Pulling me back, keep pulling me back to finish what you started
The cycle never ends, it never ends
Track Name: Withdrawn
You know what’s wrong
You know how to tell that it’s over
You know how to bring out the worst in me every time
I’ll step aside
I’ll make sure to win this time
Withdrawn from you, I’ll force you to give up on me

You watched me change
Pull away from the things the matter
When your back is turned all my lessons learned
Withdrawn from you

You leave your mark
On every life that you’ve ruined
You leave this trail of agony behind
It’s time to change
Throw your old ways in the gutter
No self esteem or anything can help you
Track Name: Fake
You can’t escape it one slip is all that it takes
Secrets stalk behind you waiting for your weakest moment
Your confession would unravel you
And the tales of all this treachery will come back to haunt you

But you can’t face it
But you can’t erase it

You’re running backwards, back to the start
Those broken mirrors show who you are

But you can’t face it
But you can’t erase it
You’ve blown all your chances so now you just fake it
Until it all comes crashing down, until it all comes crashing down around you
Track Name: Hollow
Selfish actions
Selfish words
Center of your own attention
Makes it seem absurd

It seems so
It screams you’re

Shallow and hollow
You really think you'll get that far
Shallow and hollow
Your empty words will tear you apart

Subtle hints
On your lying lips
Release their wrath
And wrecks every chance
You had to live
Track Name: Judgement
They rule the world with empty fragments
Of what justice used to be
Now every rumor's a death sentence
Their mercy's placed on misguided grace

The final breathe, consumes the pain
Let the lungs exhale the weight
Here you stand, a victim of the circumstance
Swaying in their hate

Another day brings another victim
Believe in evidence they cannot see
Any excuse to incite fear
Guilty until you prove your innocence
Track Name: Saving
Just let go and just give up
No-one can save me if I'm not falling
Whatever it takes to get a little sympathy

It just builds up, it's piled high
One mistake leads to another
Only a matter of time before it goes too far

You're saving my life one mistake at a time
It's difficult to see how
Saving my life one mistake at a time
Makes a difference to me now

Lock me up, to teach me lessons
That can't be learned if i don't hear them
These ears have been deaf from the moment I was made

I place the blame on your ideas
Rehabilitation's boring
Your good intentions just get spit back in your face
Track Name: Burn It Down
Who is the victim when the hand comes crashing down
The marks leave their impression not forgotten by anyone

So burn it down
Making ashes of the memories is the only way I've found
Burn it down
To rid myself of all things you did to me

Like father like son the reaction to the years of questioning why
We don’t end up all that different despite how much we hide
We try so hard to bury all the pain inside

How can I blame you when you suffered just like me
Knowing the reasons won’t change what I have done

So burn it down
Making ashes of the memories is the only way I've found
Burn it down
To rid myself of all things you did to me
Track Name: Don't Look Down
Run away from my every day (nightmare)
The hands that hold lose their grip on me (they say)
You need to save yourself
While they hold you down
Underwater, under pressure under all the mistakes I've made

But you can’t regret what hasn’t happened yet
But as the edge gets closer it is hard for me to not look down

The ground’s worn thin where I’ve always been
I dig this hold to bury my sins
Beneath all the lies I’ve told
They still hold me down
Underwater, under pressure under everything

But you can’t regret what hasn’t happened yet
But as the edge gets closer it is hard for me to not look down

So run away
Track Name: P.O.W.
Deception frames your empty face, confusion is read in mine
Now speak your mind what would you do with no one to answer to, no one to blame, no repercussions to make the exchange, your life seemed so precious but now insecure
your body’s held over the lightning endure these strong false emotions ending in shame, now ten times over with only yourself to blame

You tell me my life’s over, tie my hands behind my back

My hate, runs this day and surrounds you with the face of the endless gray
and it stays, you won’t take me or break me in anyway

So I wait, learning to take what I need to survive inside, bend their rules to mine, until they lose all control, I wake when they’re sleeping I fast til it hurts I defy them with silence to make sure I’m heard what happened to justice or what a man’s worth with morals in question my honor comes first, I wait for that moment, you trade souls with me, to feel yourself broken, pain cleanses everything

You tell me my life’s over, tie my hands behind my back

My hate, runs this day and surrounds you with the face of the endless gray
and it stays, you won’t take me or break me in anyway

You tell me my life’s over, tie my hands behind my back, each time my will grows stronger, can you take this from me you’re becoming a slave to my hate
Track Name: Stop Me
There's nothing to hold on to
Nothing to believe
The things you've worked so hard for
Are taken so easily

With every moment
And every breath
Every step it earns the respect of no one

These setbacks try to break our pride
A test of our spirit
But our resolve withstands it all
We’ve gone to far to quit

Through all the trials
And all the tears
All the pain it falls and the ears
Of no one

The more you strip away
The more you push me
Further and further
To what I wanted
It won't come easy
The sweet taste of satisfaction that proves you wrong
Track Name: Setting Sun
Inside, your memory’s here to stay
Who you were escapes into the ashes
Of all time that passes, etched in gray

We’re losing our way
In rays of your setting sun
We let your fading light live on

All these moments trapped in time
We’re all left behind without a purpose
Your presence the one wish on our minds

We’re losing our way
In rays of your setting sun
Now let your fading light live on

We’re losing our way in your setting sun
When the sun goes down on all of us
