Track Name: Delusions
It's when you're so surrounded that you feel most alone
Reaching for the comfort in a person that you'll never know
Your screams fall on deaf ears, You waste your breath
'Cause to them you are no-one, They wouldn't care if you were dead

Don't dare put your faith into the lies of the lost ones
Don't dare put your faith into the demise of the forgotten sons

Throw yourself into, a pit of delusion
Throw yourself away, become all you claim to hate

When you've lost your path again
Don't come running back
You'll always be lost
Always be searching for something that isn't there

Throw yourself away
Become all you claim to hate

You throw yourself away
Suffocate
You think you know disdain
But I'll show you real hate
Track Name: Collapse
Give up everything for false ideals and misinformation
We know you will
Yeah we know you will

Call to the refugees
Lost in Society
Your lives are forfeit to slavery
A monetary indulgence

I pay no subtleties to the words I feel
This world is crumbling and we're losing everything

Are you listening?
The children of underclass homes
One day you'll become
The void obeying the debtors throne

Put your hand to the sky
As the world relapses
Fuelled by the drug
Lie to yourself
As it all collapses

Give up everything for false ideals, misinformation
We know you will

Put your hand to the sky
As the world relapses
Fuelled by the drug
Lie to yourself
As it all collapses

Put your hand to the sky
As the world relapses
Fuelled by the drug
Lie to yourself
As it all collapses

Give up everything for false ideals and misinformation
We know you will
Yeah we know you will
Track Name: Heartburn
What do you know about truth,
When all you hear is lies?
You don't really know,
Anything that matters in this life.

You just walk and walk and walk,
To the sound of the drums.
When you give into everything you're running from.

What do you know about safety,
When the fire's let be?
Breathing in the smoke,
They say, "We are going to set you free"

But you don't really know,
You don't really see the powers that be,
Will crush your soul,
Your freedom is forfeit,
All hope is lost to the dormant.

It's getting harder,
To read these headlines,
As rage inside burns,
Across your eyes.

So pick up your feet,
And pick up your dreams,
'cause we won't let them be crushed,
By the men who hold us back.

What to do you know about silence?
Why do you lie and cheat and steal for the right to exist,
Think about it,
Is that all there really is?

Your freedom is forfeit,
All hope for more is lost to the fate of the dormant.

Your freedom is forfeit,
All hope for more is lost to the fate of the poor.

It's getting harder,
To read these headlines,
As rage inside burns,
Across your eyes.

So pick up your feet,
And pick up your dreams,
'cause we won't let them be crushed,
By the men who hold us back.

It's getting harder,
To read these headlines,
As rage inside burns,
Across your eyes.

So pick up your feet,
And pick up your dreams,
'cause we won't let them be crushed.

What do you know about truth,
When all you hear is lies?
You don't really know,
Anything that matters in this life.
Track Name: Ideologies
Standing there like a hole in the system
Resist the gravity of society
The endless production line
Of waste and lies and hate and I can’t
make my point any more clear
To resist is to run in fear
We are bound to cycles
Orbiting freedom in search of the right words

The words of a lost man

The words of the hollow man
Upholds the pillars of establishment
The words of the honest man
Will be lost unto history

Raise
Your hands
To be chained down where you stand

Raise
Your hands
To be chained down where you stand

Words entice
I can’t fight
I will fall
So the worms will feast on
Me

Lies spat from minds disconnected
From the world that they claim to know
You only feel malevolence
Contempt for all you know

Raise
Your hands
To be chained down where you stand

Raise
Your hands
To be chained down where you stand

They’d arm the world to the teeth
Put guns in hands of the children
Eye for an eye, Lie for a lie
The world will burn with the blood on their hands

They’d arm the world to the teeth
Put guns in hands of the children
Eye for an eye, Lie for a lie
The world will burn with the blood on their hands

Distortion of innocence from birth
Ideology contaminates the need for pity
You had a chance to save them
You had a chance to save them from the waves

Facedown in the sea

But you let them die
They suffer the hands of the tide
You couldn’t care less
There’s no money in live refugees

You let them die
They suffer the hands of the tide
You couldn’t care less
There’s no money in live refugees
Track Name: Castles
So I build it up, built it up on myself
When everything goes wrong I put my faith in the white noise
Distorted lines rise against my walls
And the pressure builds
Until I cannot hear at all
Until I cannot hear at all

So I just I just hide in the darkness of my room
Blocking out every moment
Every moment that comes too soon

I build it up like a castle, my fortress, my keep
To hold in every whimper and weep that I let slip
From the pride that I refuse to swallow
Is this a path that I am doomed to follow?

So I just I just hide in the darkness of my room
Blocking out every moment
Every moment that comes too soon

And I realise
I am better off
Alive on the inside
And with each waking breath
I lose hold of this rope around my neck
So I just lay here
With my head in my hands
Head in my hands

Silence the screams inside my head
(You're not good enough, you're not good enough)
Someone please, let me forget
(You're not good enough, you're not good enough)

Broken down into pieces of what it is
What you feel is emotion paralysis
Cold heart, cold skin on cold bones
The corpse of a dead soul
Trying to find home

But what is home to the mind in a mad life?
Hiding from the blackness of a black knife
Trying to take control the only way you know
Will let you forget and finally let go

And I realise
I am better off
Alive on the inside
And with each waking breath
I lose hold of this rope around my neck
So I just lay here
With my head in my hands
Head in my hands (Head in my hands)
