Track Name: Knee Deep
I've lost my mind, and it's not coming back now.
For what it's worth, I apologize for everything thatI put you through.
You know I would take it all back if I could.
I'll always be second best, knee deep in the end.
Rise above the rest, and prove it's worth more than said.
We can overcome this if we try.
"Retribute" a thought passed long ago, and forget what I said - it wasn't even worth it. Forgetting so much can ruin a soul, no one should live knee deep.
What we shared was not simple, yet treated as nothing.
We will never forget this.
Unforgettable, you're so unforgettable.
And at times like these, I wonder who I am.
Don't get this confused, I don't want it back now.
I'm better off, now that I'm track.
Don't get this confused, I don't want it back now.
I'm better off, now that I'm track, yeah.
But you resonate, but you resonate.
And it's hard, but I'll persevere.
I will not let this get the best of me.
Never again, will I succumb to this.
It's never true.
Yearning to destroy what's left, I defy this.
"Retribute" a thought passed long ago, and forget what I said - it wasn't even worth it. Forgetting so much can ruin a soul, no one should live knee deep.
Track Name: Bigger Hearts
I can never explain to anyone how I feel at this very moment.
It's such a haunting task, and it overwhelms my fucking mind.
Each and every day with such a pain in my chest, I struggle just to breathe.
Inhale good, and exhale all my pain.
So fuck you too, you're a waste of my time.
And now I see who's to blame, who's to blame.
Overcame what you put me through (pushing your dead-weight off my chest). Overcame what you said to me.
And I will never suck up to you, or anything, or anyone, anymore.
Though it's been a year; eternity. I still think about your mistakes.

Fuck you, I'm better than this. I'm not some insecurity you can use for your pain.
Track Name: Lion's Pride
What is this feeling?
Is it the loss, or is it just the time wasted?
Well hell if I know, I'm shit out of places to go.
Since the fracture, I haven't been myself.
And since you left me, I've come to realize that the lion's pride can't be broken even by full heart of the bear.
So if you hear this, know it's about you.
Vainglorious people only care for themselves.
I'm not who I used to be.
So fuck your pride, and your sense of ownership.
You hypocrite, you loved it when they grab your hips.
You cheated.
You lied.
"You killed our baby boy."
I'm not who I used to be, and that's fine by me.
What is this feeling? Is it the loss, or is it just all my fucking hatred?
You broke me down, and now I feel nothing.
I am not who I used to be.
Track Name: The Plague (ft. Ryan Swier)
This is the plague, infecting the weak.
Eyes glazed over with green, heads buried in the sands of materialism, forgetting what family means.
So if we are to coexist we must agree on one thing; the government is the plague, and we are the ones to be
Test subjects for their irrational theories.
No freedom of speech.
No hope for society.
Persecution of terrorists shows a reflection of ourselves.

Yet the pawns stay blind to it all,
Graciously waiting for their time to fall.
We're all so fucking blind.

Is this really how you want to live?
You're being torn apart brick by brick.
The weight of gluttony holds you down,
and your love of power will bring the end.
Fuck the american dream.
So I left my family to die,
And I became the one thing that I swore I would never become...
The plague.
This is the plague, infecting the weak.
Track Name: The Greater
It feels like I'm falling into a pit again.
Without a greater sense of purpose I'm lost.
I was torn apart and broken alone.
Without a greater sense of purpose I'm lost.
Pick up the pieces of my mind, won't let it play tricks on me anymore.
Keep him close, I won't care.
Back of the road, and end of the line, I was beaten like the rest.
But I'm not the only one who felt this in your presence, it's so dark.
I'm a fuck up, yeah. But, at least I can say I've got more integrity than you'll ever know.
Darker the times, darker the methods we will take to secure a greater sense of purpose.
The way it's been is just a fraction of what's to come,
Time will pass and we will grow together.
Forever greater my love will be for you.
Back of the road, and end of the line, I was beaten like the rest.
