Track Name: In Case You Forgot
Lyrics:

Distant from myself. Finding my wounds are as good as gone. Buried alive. I am conscious and breathing. Buried alive. This is all I have ever dreamed of. It’s fallen right before my feet. I couldn’t ask for more. I swear my heart beats with hope. My eyes are set on the goal, and I have no misconceptions. I have awoken a giant within me. I gave this my heart, and here I am with my intentions at their best. The eyes of all are watching me as I bury this misery and I know I’m awake. Pressing forward. I have awoken a giant. I’m in a different state of mind. With my hands clenched at my sides. I gave this my heart, and here I am with my intentions at their best. The eyes of all are watching me as I bury this misery and I know I’m awake. I gave this my heart.
Track Name: These Voices
Lyrics:

I heard them scream. This is the last time these voices call. I heard them scream. Again and again, they cried out telling me how I should be. I’ve been told wrong too many times. Why must it come to this? Another piece has been broken. I’ve been told wrong too many times. Another piece has broken. And I’ll quote the voices. I will keep breathing. Shouting my name, shouting my name. But I will keep on breathing. Maybe I can drown out the voices all around me that want to send me down the same road. It seems that I’m living for someone else's purpose. If I give into this I’ll be a walking ghost. Shouting my name, shouting my name. How true could this be? I hear the sounds. I hear the sounds again.
Track Name: Breaking Benjamin's Neck
Lyrics:

We deserve to be hated. We deserve to be dead. We always said forever is what we meant. Take a look at yourself. This is what we get for wanting more than we deserve. “Have we become strangers in ourselves?” I spoke aloud. Because we never knew this would be our life. This was our life. This is our life. We deserve to be hated. We deserve to be dead. Because we never knew this would be our life. It’s like asking for a curse. Will you take the chance to see this is what we get? I never dreamed this would lead to my death. We are more than just a lie. Some day, with every single lie we ever told. We’ll never be the same. The selfishness we showed will only lead us apart from one another. You left me laying here, and I never dreamed this would lead to my death. Forever our time slows. We will shine again just to let you know. We will shine again.
Track Name: John Draggin' Force
Lyrics:

Speak up. I am watching ourselves become what we once were. Oh how familiar this is to me. These faces look exactly the same as the rest. This is a test of my regards. I will not be, we will not be swallowed alive. It’s safe to say I don’t know anything, but I just want to know your plan. I’m getting signs that we’re ignoring what’s supposed to be. These signs are haunting me. I’ll let this pass. An imitation of what we’re supposed to be. Keep your eyes focused. I’ll watch my every step. Branded in my flesh. Speak up you’re not alone. Not just an automation. So steady your pulse. So steady your pulse for me. We will not become machines for all to disassemble.
Track Name: Passion Is For Smashin
Lyrics:

I will show my face, and I will remember. Oh I will never forget. I can’t help but remember and regret. My veins are filled with desire. I’m leaving nothing behind. My head is held high. There’s some things I can’t let go. But they will make me grow. It’s these moments that will always sink in. I will surface to show the face that I’ve been hiding. (I’m the enemy, so bear with me.) I’m the enemy, so bear with me. (I am not to be left alone.) I’m the enemy, so bear with me. It’s hard to deal with the fact that I’m wrong. Mistakes have been made all along. Reduced to ash. Watch as they begin to fade away. There is a constant reminder that I have grown. My callous hands are shown. There is a constant reminder that I have grown. My scars will always hold me. Can I reach higher ground? I’ll analyze my decisions. I will decide. There is a constant reminder that I have grown. My callous hands are shown. There is a constant reminder that I have grown. My scars will always hold me. But there are some things that I cannot let go, but they will make me grow. Here are my callous hands to show. I’m leaving nothing
behind. Here are my callous hands to show. My scars will always hold me.
Track Name: A Steady Mind For Steady Breathing
[Instrumental]
Track Name: I Once Knew A Man
Lyrics:

Don’t close your eyes now you might miss me fall. I know your secret, it’s got you backed up against the wall. Don’t close your eyes now you might just miss me fall. I know what you don’t want me to know. You don’t want me to know. Someone must take me to the light where I can see. Because here I am controlled with no meaning. It’s setting in. It keeps reminding me I’m safe, and all I do is listen to its words again. This is where I betray myself and I have lost the truth. I’ve lost the truth. I’ve lost the truth now, so listen close. Is this exactly what you wanted? The grace of these thoughts. I see they are following me. They must be following me. The grace of these thoughts. Believe me it’s not what you think. It’s not what you think.
Track Name: Is This Heaven_ No This Is Iowa
Lyrics:

I saw the wind take them away. To a place where they only cared for themselves. Here is your news for the crowd. Is there no more ambition? Is there no more drive? I will find a way to overcome the fear they claim. Wide eyed and hoping to find this will touch the souls of those who have lost control. I saw the wind take us away. Let me hold my tongue, while we’re resting our heads for the dawn. What is this world comprised of? We are animals. I saw the wind take us away. Let me hold my tongue, while were resting our heads for the dawn. I fear we are the ones. Here I make a stand against the world. I am against the world. Here is your news for the crowd. This is a matter of hope. They sing in perfect harmony, but not to me. They are in perfect harmony. Singing to a crowd that is asleep. I’m not sleeping. Harmonizing. They are harmonizing. Is there no more ambition? Is there no more drive? I will find a way to overcome the fear they claim. Wide eyed and hoping to find this will touch the souls of those who have lost control. We are animals.
Track Name: One Day You Will Learn, One Day We Will Learn
Lyrics:

Empty your lungs. There’s not much you can say. You are the hopeless one. You’ll stand silenced behind the walls that we’ve created. No words can weigh us down. But we are nothing without you. I’ve seen more than you know, so watch the skies as our hopes fly. No words can weigh us down. I’ve seen more than you will ever know, so watch the skies as our hopes fly. No words can weigh us down. There is no bleeding only our devotion. You can’t stand between us. This is what we live for. A life of devotion and love. So watch the skies as our hopes fly. No words can weigh us down. There is no bleeding only our devotion. Just watch the skies because our hopes will fly. Maybe one day you will understand. One day you’ll understand love.
Track Name: Atlas
Lyrics:

Open up. With the weight of your past on your shoulders. May we break these chains and move on. When will you let this go? So open your heart so mine might breathe. I want you to help me fill the spaces in between. I’m trying my best to be real strong and I don’t want to be alone. Reconcile my thoughts. I hold this all in my chest. I was left with a simple thought. You’re strong enough. Singing of memories. We can’t sing of these memories for long, and I have been pacing myself to see you open the door. We’re burning every memory without a sound. Turn back the clock. A heart that’s bound by what once was. The sea is awaiting us. We live for something more than this. Searching for more. The sea is awaiting us. This is it until the end. But we can’t depart and find a new meaning. I can never give this up. We’re drifting into the sunset.
