Track Name: Watching The World Burn
I watched the world burn
I watched it all melt away
I saw what was underneath the skin
And there was nothing for me

Collapse
Face in the dirt
I know this will
Be the last thing you do
You will
Regret
The things you said
You know that this is
Where they would lead

I watched the world burn
I watched it all melt away
I saw what was underneath the skin
And there was nothing for me

Walking
Moving
To a better place
I will not fuel your flames
Burning
Away
What I am
I will not be a shell
Today

I watched the world burn
I watched it all melt away
I saw what was underneath the skin
And there was nothing for me

I watched the world burn
I watched it all melt away
I saw what was underneath the skin
And there was nothing for me
Track Name: It's Not Your Fault But You're Easy To Blame
There was a time when I was whole
There was a time when I could feel
Anything
There was a time when I was happy
There was a time before you happened
To me

You are the only one I can blame
You are the one who made me who I am today
You are the only one I can blame
You took away everything
From me

I don't remember who I was before
Everything changed when I met you
The pieces fell away
Leaving a shell
Of what was

You are the only one I can blame
You are the one who made me who I am today
You are the only one I can blame
You took away everything
From me

You are the only one I can blame
You are the one who made me who I am today
You are the only one I can blame
You took away everything
From me
Track Name: Regret Your Past And You Reject Your Self
I can feel you inside of me
Un-stoic and unforgiving
You show who I was
So angry and detached

You are a poison
Coursing through me
Turning me against myself
You are a poison
So I tore you from my mind
I will not regret my past

I can feel you inside of me
Destructive and ruinous
You showed me who I am
And you tried to tear it away

You are a poison
Coursing through me
Turning me against myself
You are a poison
So I tore you from my mind
I will not regret my past
Track Name: There's No Time For Second Guessing Yourself
You're all talk but that's the problem
You never say anything
All it takes is one step but you don't move
You see her
She sees you
And you know what to do
But you keep freezing

All you get is once night to make this what you want it to be
There is no time for second guessing yourself
All you get is once night to make this what you want it to be
There will be no second chances

You're all talk but that's the problem
You never take the chance
What's the worst that could happen
Rejection
You've been the before
And it hurts less than you think
Regret is all that comes from inaction

All you get is once night to make this what you want it to be
There is no time for second guessing yourself
All you get is once night to make this what you want it to be
There will be no second chances
All you get is once night to make this what you want it to be
There is no time for second guessing yourself
All you get is once night to make this what you want it to be
There's no room for second chances
Track Name: Escape
I stare at the sky
And I can't imagine
What my place is
There's no room
For self-hatred
Self-pity

What is one more
Attempt at gratification
One more chance to fail
I am so trapped
By my self
I can't escape my own
Loathing

I cannot run
Anymore
I cannot hide from myself
Anymore
I have to change my mind
I have to change my
Life

I have to change my life

I have to change my

Life
