Dissension 01:25
My father always swore to me, courage is fear that said its prayers But I’m terrified of our current state of affairs Is there no end to this? Can’t we peacefully coexist A holy American and faithless anarchist

Precariat 03:05
Standing at an impasse forged with broken hearts and shattered glass The death of our progress, destruction of the middle class This calamity knows no bounds and shows no shame It’s spit in our face and we gave hate a different name Terror It’s a corporate design They keep stacking bodies on the capital shrine Were you dazed by the flashing lights and dollar signs Did you feel your conscience shift into a steep decline Mind numb from what the suffocation has become We’re all born apart of the great divide Molded and shaped in the machine’s assembly line With oil in our blood and diamonds in our eyes We’ve been longing for relief not an empty compromise I’m so goddamn discouraged by the way we live our days out Destructively with our heads down Aspirations, ambitions stay bound It’s all routine Played out scenes over cells and magazines It’s the American dream Or todays big sales at shopping malls Built on grounds housing hell Mind numb from what the suffocation has become We’re all born apart of the great divide Molded and shaped in the machine’s assembly line With oil in our blood and diamonds in our eyes We’ve been longing for relief not an empty compromise

I’m on borrowed time for the days I’ve wasted So I chase them down with a glass of hatred Tried to taste the faith but I stuck with the spirits Ingest with haste but I’ll never fear it So come one and come all It’s the greatest attraction your eyes have ever seen We’re going to make a scene Together we’ll watch mankind fall Asleep at the wheel and drive this circus through a goddamn tree Step up and pick your poison there’s so many to choose Let’s gamble with addiction I’m all in I can’t lose I think you’ve got your demons mixed up again Fooled by the lifestyle and the slight of hand If nothing good ever lasts, let’s cheers to oblivion and pour another glass We live in a world of underachievers Content with being comfortable and indirect yet never sober An intellect suffering society’s hangover So step up and pick your poison there’s so many to choose Let’s gamble with addiction I’m all in I can’t lose I think you’ve got your demons mixed up again Fooled by the lifestyle and the slight of hand If nothing good ever lasts, let’s cheers to oblivion and poor another glass (Drink it down, smoke it up, hide yourself in clouded lungs, hazy eyes and empty cups) It’s a cycle of staying numb It’s out of my hands the person I’ve become These vices take a part before they take the whole Before they take it all Drink it down, smoke it up Hide yourself in clouded lungs Hazy eyes and empty cups But this addiction digs under my skin and every now and then I still let it in Just to revel in the afterglow of when we danced on graves of bad decisions It’s a cycle of staying numb It’s out of my hands the person I’ve become These vices take a part before they take the whole Before they take it all

Heartstrong 03:03
This darkness consumes the light Your faults and concerns, do they keep you up at night If this doesn’t haunt you I’ll draw inspiration from what talents you left behind Do you feel alive or dead inside Your ghost shades the glow that gave you life We follow suit and blindly chase the views they redefined An illusion of comfort, a scene that’s no greener on the other side (I promise it’s golden) Stay wide eyed beautiful Hold close to what matters most (And sun-dried like the hills on the central California coast) But Alive with hope I find myself in what’s been lost As pages fold over our youth becomes a fog Our goals was what defined their love Like hands in ticking clocks our time won’t let up Whats moving forward one day, all still ends up stuck (I promise it’s golden) Stay wide eyed beautiful Hold close to what matters most (And sun-dried like the hills on the central California cost) But alive with hope (I promise it’s golden) We follow suit and blindly chase the views they redefined (And sun-dried) An illusion of comfort, a scene that’s no greener on the other side

You belong in Austin It’s where your heart’s aways been You said I never paid attention but I was listening Every word still resonates Your sense of fear, your sins and faith And all you wish you could embrace Were we a step or an a escape Well maybe I was wrong But maybe you were too It’s just the self-destructive system that we both fell into Symbiotic in nature with nothingness to give Blind eyes see no perspective Left yourself in Portland Or what portions you had left So damaged and it’s obvious Destruction craves an audience And I swear that you need help but won’t accept it Though it kills to know I can’t give it I’ve done everything but admit that It’s just as much on me Maybe I was wrong But we both know you were too It’s the fucked up situations that you always pull me into Symbiotic in nature with nothingness to give Blind eyes see no perspective But that night you lit up my eyes like a field of fireflies And in that brief moment I could see that I was blinded by my inconsistencies I felt my chest decompress I laid the old me to rest And as he haunts my dreams I’m not obsessed I’m enlightened not blessed

You always swore to me you’d only admire the sky from afar (Rather than leave) With the clouds beyond the moon and stars Up there is such an empty place So open and vague and the fact that it gave you hope It showed on your face Now it’s so real to me Were you so lost in emptiness that hope became a foreign phrase Diluted and forgotten in the endless daze I never knew how much hate a heart could hold A constant obsession with death and depression marked you astray Took you away but I still feel your loneliness like everyday in the worst way I’m drowning in the thoughts and the memories I’m sinking in your absence, in your passing I found you in a room saying words I thought you never meant Quite the sight for sore eyes isn’t it Watching my stability fall apart Highlighting my imperfections as a work of art I just don’t think I can make things work like they did before This comatose state won’t be ignored I’m sorry you were so lost and empty that hope became a foreign phrase But I won’t forget you for the rest of my days I never knew how much hate a heart could hold A constant obsession with death and depression marked you astray Took you away but I still feel your loneliness like everyday in the worst way I’m drowning in the thoughts and the memories I’m sinking in your absence, in your passing On your death bed You left your final words and they read My world’s become an empty place Void of comfort I felt death’s embrace With open arms I fell back I want to see the black

Denouement 04:36
The world I thought I knew Dissolved and born again In the form of truth I was unprepared All of my indiscretions digested at the same time Crushing self-awareness without a warning sign There’s no warning sign For the past five years I’ve been a wreck if I could find my heart I’d apologize from the bottom of it Self-destruction is hard to admit Staring at the aftermath of an ego death I close my eyes and catch my breath I can’t believe I let myself get this far Consistently tearing myself apart Reconstruction so out of reach Redemption’s in the wreckage Just dig deep beneath I’ve been avoiding divine intervention I’ve had my head in the clouds but now I’m ready to come down I’m hell bound Devil on my shoulder hello my old friend Have you come to gamble with me again The stakes are raised I’ll put it all down on red Or let the black send me to my end For the past five years I’ve been a wreck if I could find my heart I’d apologize from the bottom of it Self-destruction is hard to admit Staring at the aftermath of an ego death I close my eyes and catch my breath I can’t believe I let myself get this far Consistently tearing myself apart Reconstruction so out of reach Redemption’s in the wreckage Just dig deep beneath Such destruction formed by untimely circumstance Reality misconception through a psychedelic trance The requiem played on Yet there was no one to dance All mankind caught in a loveless romance Are we so desensitized that we’ve forgotten what’s real Numbing life down to a complacent synthetic feel I will not bow down to this out of touch reality We live lifeless lives Glorify your mortality Hold on to every moment when you’re overwhelmed and brought to tears So out of touch and hardened Why is it that we can’t grasp these years Not the lost hope or sadness but burdens we’ve conquered in times of madness
