Track Name: Break
I need a fucking break.

I'm tired and I need a fucking break.
My head aches and I need a fucking break.
Heavy eyes and I need a fucking break.
There's scars on your arms and I'm filled with mistakes.

I sit alone at night and watch myself rot.
Track Name: Miles Apart
Yeah you said it best
Distance pulls at your feet till you're fucking numb
But how do I know what's out there if I don't run away?

Everything worth a damn dies in this fucking place. It tightens it's grip around your throat, until you can't see straight.

And I can't breathe again

I'm not pushing in the wrong direction
It's killing me one set back at a time.
But don't worry, I'll come running back.
Track Name: ...I Pollute
I'm sick of your opinions,
and it's not the lack of finer words.
Your idiocy leaves you licking at my feet.


How does it feel to be no one, or nothing?
How does it feel knowing someone like me is better than you?

And when you kneel down every night to beg for the forgiveness of your sins, just remember I am your fucking god.

I laid down with the virgins,
and I will never regret it.
I won't regret it, and I'll bathe in your misery.

When I'm gone,
Listen to me.
Righteous fucking apathy.

Let me in and I'll break your fears.
Track Name: Secret Of Birth - Don't We All...

As the night swallows us whole, bitter air chokes out life.
No horizon to be seen, no sun to be set.

How are we meant to go on,
when it's ourselves we despise?

We despise...
