Track Name: Folding Aces
Lyrics:

It's a vicious cycle, bound to lose control, every step in the wrong direction, takes me further away from home.  there's no sense in pretending, that this is where I belong, I will let the search continue, the cycle carries on.  when you think it's over (think it's over), forever marked by the blood of your mistakes, even when it's over (when it's over), you'll die by the weight of your mistakes.  it's another night, you know I'm losing sleep, there's no telling where I'm headed, there's no telling what's right for me. All I really know is, I need this answer now, so i can finally lay to rest, all this doubt inside my head. When you think it's over (think it's over), forever marked by the blood of your mistakes, even when it's over (when it's over), you'll die by the weight of your mistakes. You thought this ended with you, you thought I was too weak to break these ties, you can only push me so far, another lesson learned but at what cost. All the hate, all the struggle, fills my soul to the fucking brim, you're so disappointing, I've lost all hope to let you live. Just remember there will be no next time, too many chances gave all I could give. Just remember there will be no next time, too many chances gave all I could give. So many chances. Too many chances. You thought this ended with you.  
Track Name: The Longer You Wait
Lyrics:

The longer you wait, the more it takes over, you're losing yourself, losing your grip. Don't bother to hide, they will find you, they won't stop 'till they take it all. This will be the day you reclaim, everything that's been taken away, this will be the last time, this is starting over. You thought you were safe, thought this was your support, picking up what they destroyed, what's done is done. This will be the day you reclaim, everything that's been taken away, this will be the last time, this is starting over. You can still get out, everybody's watching, paying close attention, plotting on you. You can still get out, after all that they've done, there's no one that can save them, plan your next move. Don't give it time, don't give them the chance, don't give it time, end them now. It's taken so long to realize, this is what I have to do. It's taken so long to figure out, this is what I have to do. (For) no more lies. No more games. What I have to do, end this now.
Track Name: Survival
Lyrics:

Give me my time back, that's all I want, I would have never committed knowing the outcome. Heavy thoughts weigh on my mind, in search of anything to make this right. Days and weeks are passing, still in the same place, give me sanity, help me escape, from the choices you made. The choices you made. Follow you to the end, of this trail of lies, so i can disprove, what you've testified. All i asked for what a truthful word, instead my world was shaken, and now I fight to regain control, of a life that should have never been broken. Days and weeks are passing, still in the same place, give me sanity, help me escape, from the choices you made. It's a costly lesson, something i should have avoided, with my heart in the right place, how could i have known it. I've only loved once and it choked me to death, all this time spent wishing is better left unsaid, forced out those who turned their back, so I can start living for myself again. Broken and tortured, left hung out to dry, hollowed from the years spent trying to survive, I find myself twisted with the demons I've made, and broke myself out of these habit's I've made.
Track Name: No Pain Goes Unpunished
Lyrics:

It's a crushing realization, my best interest was never yours. I went with reason, I forced you out.  it couldn't go past this point. If all we have is our word, you had nothing at all, if all we have is our word, you had nothing at all. You can only hold yourself responsible, what do you tell yourself to make this right. We both know, we both know, we both know wrong is wrong, and some things can't be justified. Now all your lies are unfolding, I sit and watch as the pages burn, did you think this would last forever, did you think this would last forever. You hide behind false truth, no pain goes unpunished, fear is your maker and I am the night, claw harder to escape, claw harder to escape.  
Track Name: Vultures
Lyrics:

Every move is monitored, every word ignored. This isn't what you thought, this is all wrong. These are the days, the ones you feared were coming. where people don't act like they seem. It's just what you thought. You can't trust anyone now, not after this. They all are waiting. They all are planning. When they fall who's still standing? Just when you thought that you could trust everyone. When every time you get closer. They try to tear you at the seams. Leave it alone, let it unfold.
Track Name: Life Of Uncertainty
Lyrics:

I've known all along, this is where you'd be, forced in a life of uncertainty. Your actions have shown this is where you'll sink. Reaching for the surface, no helping hands. This is where you'll sink, a life of uncertainty.  It's time to take control, it's time to reclaim, it's time to get out of this rut. It's time to take control, it's time to reclaim. It's time to rise up. Rise up. It's time to take control again now. It's time to take control again now.  
Track Name: True Potential
Lyrics:

When you look at the big picture, tell me what you see. Are you making progress, taking steps to where you want to be? It would be a shame to waste such potential, are you waiting for that push in the right direction. Life can be cruel, but I know you have the ability to pull through. Stop taking everyone else's advice, do what's best for you. It's time for you to make a change, it's time to make them understand. This is your true passion, not a waste of time. Keep your intentions clear, and your focus direct. Make the best of the hand you were dealt, push back those who hold you down, you are your own saving grace, break these chains, make your escape.
Track Name: Condemned
Lyrics:

With no changes made why would I stay? You are consumed by what you believe to be the truth. I see right through you. You don't see that you are only looking out for yourself. How can this work when you are dragging everyone down? We are trying to better ourselves. How can this work? You are dragging everyone down. Something is changing in me. Now this is all I see deception, hate, greed. Look what I've turned into. I can't feel anything anymore. Locked in this prison I've tried to escape. With no changes made I am condemned.  
Track Name: Hourglass
Lyrics:

We've let the time pass for too long, ignored the warnings. Now it's all because the end is here, you run from your defeat.  I'll take it in stride. This is the end. You've brought us here. This is the end. We've let the time pass for too long, ignored the warnings, now it's all because the end is here, you run from your defeat. I'll take it in stride. The end is fucking here. I am letting this go, pulling myself back into life, your patience is tested, this isn't your fight. My moment of clarity has saved our lives.  
Track Name: Everything Has A Price
Lyrics:

All your words lead in the wrong direction, I'm surprised you know where you're coming from. Turn away from this place of solace. You've bled this dry for the last time. I should have never had to question your intentions, when the stakes were highest you were looking out for number one. I should have never had to question your intentions, when the stakes were highest you were looking out for number one. Days spent, lives spent, promises broken, everything has a price (has a price). Every night, every mile, every twisted smile, everything has a price (has a price). Blood spilled, tears shed, disconnected, to seek out what we've always wanted. Everything has a price whether you want it or not.  This is what you will find, when you take everything for granted you will always lose. You and your consequences collide, it's time for you to choose. Is this the kind of person you wanted to be, alone with no one to turn to. Never tying up your loose ends, and burning every bridge in the path you choose. You're forever alone (you've bled this dry for the last time), walking forever alone (whether you want it or not). You're forever alone (you've bled this dry for the last time), walking forever alone (whether you want it or not).  
Track Name: The Curse
Lyrics:

Our fate has been chosen. Can't break these ties that hold us to this place. No time for the tired, no time for the weak. Fall to your knees, this is the life you will lead. Try to deny no longer. Rip out these pages, we rewrite our lives. Lift this curse, we'll never fall in line. Rip out these pages, we rewrite our lives. Lift this curse, we'll never fall in line.
Track Name: Sincerely
Lyrics:

You're trapped in your own hell and you feed off the bottom, you are a liar, a leech, a commonality. You have nothing to fucking offer. I can't help but pity your insecurity. All things change, this will be no different. I'll help you uncover the buried and bring to the surface, what's inside you. You're addicted to sorrow, you will do anything to get a rise. Your thirst for attention, will never leave you satisfied. Do the right thing, change your ways, end the line, end the game. We all grow wiser as we go through the hardships, I won't let you ruin this for me. Show the world you're not as bad as you seem, do what you have to to make them see. It's something that you can help, prove them wrong.  You're addicted to sorrow, you will do anything to get a rise. Your thirst for attention, will never leave you satisfied. Don't allow this process to repeat. It's time for a new beginning. You only get one second chance, don't allow this to repeat. It's time for you to prove them wrong, It's time for a new beginning. You only get one second chance, don't allow this to repeat. It's time for you to prove them wrong, It's time for a new beginning.
