Track Name: Dream Demon(s)
I am living in constant fear
Every night when they re-appear
Get them out of my head
Dream demons consume me

They constrict my muscles
Paralyze my body
Let go of me
I can feel them ripping
Tearing at my soul
Let go of me

I am strong, when I’m not asleep
So ghosts come searching for me
In my dreams.
In my dreams.

Paralyze me
Only for a moment
You only find me in my sleep
You can only hurt me in my dreams

I am strong, when I’m not asleep
So ghosts come searching for me
In my dreams.
In my dreams.

I'm alive,
But I know
What happens
When I cross the threshold
It buries me, underneath my eyes
It buries me, I’m my own demise
My demons, control me

It buries me, underneath my eyes
It buries me, I’m my own demise
My demons, control me

I am strong, when I’m not asleep
So ghosts come searching for me
In my dreams.
In my dreams.
I am strong, when I’m not asleep
So ghosts come searching for me
In my dreams.
In my dreams.

I am living in constant fear
Every night when they re-appear
Get them out of my head
Dream demons consume me

I don't know what I'm fighting for
any more.

Every night I wake up and feel the life of you slipping away.
Every day I brush off my anxiety and wish it were yesterday.
Please, don't leave me now, I know I'm being selfish, but I can not help myself.
Please, don't leave me now , I need you to survive, I need you to fucking try.

I know we all age together.
This is the only race we run from the finish line.

We can not outrun the outcome,
Predetermined from the start, we can only continue to survive.
Until the sand in our hourglass runs dry.

We all run from,
We all run from,
We all run from,
We all run from death.

We all run from death.
We all run from inevitability.
We all run from death.
We all run from inevitability.

I don't want to miss you,
any more.

Every night I wake up and feel the life of you slipping away.
Every day I brush off my anxiety and wish it were yesterday.
Please, don't leave me now, I need you to survive, I need you to fucking try.
I need you to fucking try.
I need you to fucking try.
I need you to fucking try.
Track Name: Stay
Cast aside
Beaten and battered, for what?
How long until I feel the air inside my lungs?
Cast me aside

I felt love in my bones for the first time
For so long I tried to make you see
That I'd do anything
To close the gap between two bodies.

Has God drowned the fire amongst our being?
I've given all I have to give
Watching as my world comes crashing all around me
All I can do, all I can do is stare.

Fighting everyday to find the comfort of your arms inside a hopeless shelter
Fighting everyday to find the comfort of your arms inside of a hopeless shelter

Hopeless.

You've faded
You drifted away
Strangers with memories is what we've grown to be

I'll never forget you
Always gonna haunt you
Bring me back to my feet

I'll never forget you
Always gonna haunt you
Suck the life out of me

Release me
Release me from your grip
Spill forth your venom
Bring me back to my feet

I'll never forget you
Always gonna haunt you
Bring me back to my feet

I'll never forget you
Always gonna haunt you
Suck the life

Has God drowned the fire amongst our being?
I've given all I have to give
Watching as my world comes crashing all around me
All I can do, all I can do is stare.

Cast aside
Beaten and battered, for what?
How long until I feel the air inside my lungs?
Cast me aside
Track Name: Reconstruct
I’ve been running in circles
Day after day after day after day (day after day)
I can feel my mind slipping away

I try my best to be saved from, being afraid
I try my best to be saved from, being betrayed
I need to reconstruct my faith

I will try
I will try
I need to reconstruct my faith

I need to reconstruct my faith

I will try to stay perceptive and stay from the fallacies
I will use my vision to see, what others cannot see
I will try to stay perceptive and stay from the fallacies
I will use my vision to see, what others cannot see

I’ve been running in circles
Day after day after day after day (day after day)
I can feel my mind slipping away

Away

I try my best to be saved from, being afraid
I try my best to be saved from, being betrayed
I need to reconstruct my faith

I will try to stay perceptive and stay from the fallacies
I will use my vision to see, what others cannot see
I will try to stay perceptive and stay from the fallacies
I will use my vision to see, what others cannot see

Take control
Release
Track Name: Mother
Life and death, without these extremes
Where would we be?
Somewhere I belonged in the median of your being.
You watched my eyes open
And I watched yours close
But before you drifted away

Life made me a place.

Your lessons will stay with me
Your teachings will not recede
I promise that I'll make you proud
Make you proud of me
You didn't live your life in vain and I want you to know
Your love, your heart, lives on through me.

I will never forget, your smile, I will never let go, of your voice.
I will never forget, your patience, I will never let go, of your memory...

Mother, mother...
Let me sink into your arms again,
Once more (Just one more time)
Mother, mother...
Teach me to reach through the unseen
Reach out to me

Your lessons will stay with me
Your teachings not recede
I promise that I'll make you proud
Make you proud of me
Make you proud of me

Life and death, without these extremes
Where would we be?
Somewhere I belonged in the median of your being.

Mother, mother...
Let me sink into your arms again,
Once more (Just one more time)
Mother, mother...
Teach me to reach through the unseen
Reach out to me
