Track Name: A Path Less Traveled
All inside my mind is dead
Captivate, create a perfect world inside my head
Where i can see the black of the sun
And the light of the night
Back facing the world
Not a sould in sight
And thats fine
A void lies as far as eyes can see
This path I follow is so hollow that it swallows me
What does not exist
Does not destroy
You can'not break
What can't be broken
What does not exist
Does not destory
All that you know
Comtemplate the world you see now
Escape
Reshape
Design a sky that no light can penetrate

Everything I know is broken
And this is not the way that I wanted to be
The path I follow isn't always the best for me

All inside my mind is lost
Fabricate, negate in spite of the cost
Tell me what it's like to be outcast
Outlast everything that i've set free
Say goodbye to a world not meant for me
You need to let go of everything that you hold close
Release the fear from your mind state
Make me whole when i am
Broken
Awoken
Every word spoken
Pretense
No sense
Collapse
Condense
Prepare
Repair
Clear skies
Blue Air
Kill the world and throw it away
Hold your tongue now
Because i'm stranded
I'm abandoned
I need no one
And i'll never give a fuck

Everything I know is broken
And this is not the way that I wanted to be
The path I follow isn't always the best for me

I can no longer see
Who I wanted to be
I'm all alone
Isolation is all i know
Track Name: Blindfolded
We felt the light from your eyes
We’ve read the words of your book
We'll follow you down no matter what happens
But I believe in what I can feel with my own hands
Every day brings us closer to the end
But can we save ourselves
Well never know because
We’re living for nothing more than discrepancies
We’ve built this world ourselves
All we are is a plague to this stage
Just mere pawns with our heads in the ground
Will we reap what we've sewn
Even though your faith would say
This will not always be our home
Will we reap what we’ve seen
It doesn't matter what your faith would say
We’ll all be dead before we know
We exist just for
The task of burning our whole world to the ground
Living every day
Like some prophets gonna turn it all round
We will never know
If there is a meaning to our selfish lives
Because we will all be dead
Before we ever get a chance to see the light
There is no light
Track Name: Portals (Feat. JT Cavey)
Can you picture me
Drifting in the breeze
On these road lines
The California skyline helps me find my way home
Go
You've misplaced your hate
This place was all a lie
Sleepless nights till we said our goodbyes
I may be desolate but I am not alone

When I close my eyes, so wide
And I see you, to be true, I need you to myself
You were always a step away
The thought of you is all that I need
To take me, to break me, to save me from myself
You give me life, you are the air that I breathe

Wanderer
Just like the sea
I wave goodbye to the tides that are drowning me
As you concede
I can finally breathe
In the most solace state that my mind can conceive

:JT Cavey Feature:

When I close my eyes, so wide
And I see you, to be true, I need you to myself
You were always a step away
The thought of you is all that I need
To take me, to break me, to save me from myself
You give me life, you are the air that I breathe

Floating through time
I have walked a thousand miles
To hear your voice again
Take me, to the time I was fine
No one could break me down this hard
Save me, from myself,
I climb this stairway back to you.
When I close my eyes, so wide
And I see you, to be true, I need you to myself
You were always a step away
Track Name: Things With Feathers
You can view the world clearly
Through your own eyes
Open up to everything that there is to see
Your scars are nothing more than a telling of your past
Never let this memory become your last
Decadence took precedence
Live life malevolent
Rebuild yourself
Realize that you are relevant
Now
You can't put a price on your life
Despite the pain you've been fed
You're worth more than you know
This is all in your head (all in your head)

If you find yourself broken
Never let your feet leave the ground
If you feel you've lost it all know
There's more to live for

I know this life is not everything that it could be
Why are you running away
Take time
Find yourself you'll find your friends right beside you.
Make no mistake we'll never let you fall
Follow the light in your heart
Don't let your demons guide you
You will not be broken
By your own hand (by your own hand)

If you find yourself broken
Never let your feet leave the ground
If you feel you've lost it all know
There's more to live for

Your life is more than yours
Think of those you're not meant to leave behind
Pick it up pull it out of yourself
Find hope in the ones you're not meant to leave behind
Your legacy is bigger than you
We left behind something more than we knew
Get up

If you find yourself broken
Never let your feet leave the ground
If you feel you've lost it all know
There's more to live for
Track Name: To Forge A Fortune
We start with a canvas
A derivative of sincerity
A masterpiece in its own right
Look at the irony
Take me back home
I know that time won't stop
Clawing at my mind
These redundant attempts
To revitalized the things I held so dear
A future less promising
A past unfamiliar
Stuck in a never ending darkness
Yeah
Cast by the one before you
I've left you in the wake
You'll never be the same
Your world burned before my eyes
You don't notice a diamond in the black of shadow

But the days fly
And I'm still wasting my time
Building a bridge to nowhere (a bridge to nowhere)
And if I go
Would you ask me stay
Or would you follow me
Don't follow me down (don't follow me down)

Please save me
Please save me from myself
I'm lost looking for the love I once felt
I've spoke these words before
You're unfamiliar
You said you'd be the light of my life
But your eyes aren't as bright
As the ones I see in my dreams
I'll never fill this hole inside my soul
I have to let you go
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry

But the days fly
And I'm still wasting my time
Building a bridge to nowhere (a bridge to nowhere)
And if I go
Would you ask me stay
Or would you follow me
Don't follow me down (don't follow me down)

I’m falling by myself again
Running with my eyes wide open
I’m falling by myself again
Running with my eyes wide open
I’m falling by myself again
Running with my eyes wide open
I’m falling by myself again
Running with my eyes wide open

We start with a canvas
A derivative of sincerity
A masterpiece in its own right
Lost in its own glory
Take me back home
I know that time won't stop
Clawing at my mind
These redundant attempts
To revitalized the things I held so dear
A future less promising
A past familiar
Suck in a present never ending

But the days fly
And I'm still wasting my time
Building a bridge to nowhere (a bridge to nowhere)
And if I go
Would you ask me stay
Or would you follow me
Don't follow me down (don't follow me down)

But the days fly
And I'm still wasting my time
Building a bridge to nowhere (a bridge to nowhere)
And if I go
Would you ask me stay
Or would you follow me
Don't follow me down (don't follow me down)
Track Name: Fool's Gold
When the days were younger
I thought you'd never leave this place
When the days were younger
I thought you'd never leave this place
When the days were younger (when the days were younger)
I thought you'd never leave this place (never leave this place)
When the days were younger (when the days were younger)
I thought you'd always be here to stay (always here to stay)
And when the days were young i knew time heals all
Time heals all
And when the days were young i knew time heals all
Time heals all
I always looked at time as nothing more than just a number
And as your heart grew weak your voice still cracked like thunder
But as the days grew thin I knew i felt it in the air
I swore I would be there
And I failed
(And when the days were young i knew time heals all
Time heals all)
I was wrong
(And when the days were young i knew time heals all
Time heals all)
When the days were younger
I thought you'd never leave this place
When the days were younger
I thought you'd never leave this place
(Never leave this place)
Track Name: (in)Humanity
Tell me was it worth it
To silence all you fears
To break away from the unfamiliar
To put your faith in something blinding
As if our species wasn't so ugly
What makes you think that any life is less important than your own
When does it end
Let go of the fear
An innate subtle form of hate
That will not disappear
Let's make it clear
That the direction we steer
Must vere away from the tears
That were so dangerously near
Violence is endless affair
I do not speak your tongue
Promote the harm of the blind and unsung
We speak a voice for those without one (those without one)
We are
Endless
We are
Timeless
We are the light that guides the way
We are
Fearless
You will
Hear us
Remember every word we say
The color of a person's skin has no bearing on the heart they hold within

What will it take to break the
The person that you see
What are you running away from
You’re skin and bones like me
So tell me what's your reasoning
For leaving me dead
You can break me down
And put me in the ground
But we both bleed red

Maybe one day
We'll all be color blind
And love people for the hearts they hold within
When will we free our minds
When will we free our minds
Tell me why you think it's okay
To be the way you are
You put down anything that's different
How have you made it this far (made it this far)
We've all come this far
But your ideals are still stuck in the past

What will it take to break the
The person that you see
What are you running away from
You’re skin and bones like me
So tell me what's your reasoning
For leaving me dead
You can break me down
And put me in the ground
But we both bleed red

How is that we've made so much progress as humans
Yet we still base our opinions on others off of a color, a weight, or a size
When did the prevalance of difference divide us and why are we letting it
We are not different you and I
Why aren't we banding to help each other
Instead of diving ourselves due to asthetics

What will it take to break the
(Maybe one day)
The person that you see
(We'll all be color blind)
What are you running away from
(And love people for the hearts they hold within)
You’re skin and bones like me
(When will we free our minds)
So tell me what's your reasoning
(Maybe one day)
For leaving me dead
(We'll all be color blind)
You can break me down
(And love people for the hearts they hold within)
And put me in the ground
(When will we free our minds)
But we both bleed red

What will it take to break the
(Maybe one day)
The person that you see
(We'll all be color blind)
What are you running away from
(And love people for the hearts they hold within)
You’re skin and bones like me
(When will we free our minds)
So tell me what's your reasoning
(Maybe one day)
For leaving me dead
(We'll all be color blind)
You can break me down
(And love people for the hearts they hold within)
And put me in the ground
(When will we free our minds)
But we both bleed red
Maybe one day
