Track Name: Severance
I left you all behind, I just wanted time alone
I'm sorry that I'm not there anymore, but I don't wanna come home
It's so quiet here, and the time goes so slow
It's what I've always wanted, but now I just don't know

I always do this to myself
Can never blame anybody else
Distance and disconnection
Just to find my personal hell

I'm so far away, I guess I drifted from the pier
I can't see the shore, and not a single soul is near

I always do this to myself
Can never blame anybody else
Distance and disconnection
Just to find my personal hell

I pushed you all away, I thought that's what I needed
But now I'm so alone and I'm feeling defeated

Instant relief, eternal grief

I fixed a toothache by ripping off my own jaw
I stopped my headache by holding up shotgun
Cauterized the wound by starting an inferno
Track Name: Vacancy
breathe the smoke from your lungs into mine
Take me to every little corner of your mind
i want to hear the words that you think
the ones you are too afraid to speak
I’ve been knocking for months, hoping I’d see your face at the door
and let me in so that I can explore
show me the light, show me the dark
I promise I can handle it, I’ve been prepared from the start
you’ve been searching for ages, trying to find the medium
but all you find is broken shells of what was
the air inside bites as if I’m not welcome here
I know it’s vacancy that’s swallowed you over the years
now I can see the broken, and I can see the clean
if only there was a way I could bridge the in between
plant a seed, let it grow
no matter how unfit the soil, you will find a way to sow
it may take a few hard winters to reap the full reward
but I promise it’s worth it, and I’ll stay with you through the storm

the air inside bites as if I’m not welcome here
but I know it’s the vacancy that’s swallowed you over the years
now I can see the broken, and I can see the clean
so god oh please god, let me bridge the in between

you may not believe me now, but store it in your mind
and listen when I say, “you’re never set in stone, and wounds will always heal with time"
Track Name: Drive
In a crowded room I still feel alone. Inside my room I still don't feel at home. It's been a while since I last felt alive, and even longer since I took this drive

On the highway East, just like every other week
Before those times had come and gone. Before my time here had been stretched out for far too long

So I'll pretend I don't dream that the reaper will stand right in front of me

Make this trip one last time
To finally do something, something with my life.
When I close my eyes and drift away, then I'll know that today's the day.

I have felt myself slipping away.

There's nothing to look forward to without you at the end like before.

So I'll pretend I don't dream that the reaper will stand right in front of me

Make this trip one last time
To finally do something, something with my life.
When I close my eyes and drift away, then I'll know that today's the day.


Lost soul be free. I'm done trying to find my way
Track Name: Control
Who's that big man knocking at your door?
Someone to take all control? Someone to collect your soul?
Always had no problem saying no, but now Youre shaking cold

Worship of deity, a deity by man
What's there to be scared of?
He just wants to shake your hand
If i'd just open my door, i'd see he's not all bad
Hell, he looks just like me, but he's hanging his head

He's always hanging his head
He's always hanging his head
He's always hanging his head
I can't believe that Im dead


I can't find the gates,
Or the lake covered in flames

It's just so damn quiet, I wish I could try it all again
Maybe This time I won't be so scared
Maybe this time I won't be so unprepared

I'm always hanging my head
I'm always hanging my head
I'm always hanging my head
I guess that I'm really dead


Please let me try this again
