Track Name: Hell Is Black
Where does the flame go
when it's finally burned out
there is no hope anymore
I only excel at failing
and publishing my insides
on my bedroom floor

I can't see anyone but me
Filled from wall to wall in this coffin
Bed of nails

I can't stop having dreams
where I'm the one in the casket

death's hand will guide us all home
we can't escape the great equalizer

where are your prayers now
there are no fucking survivors
where is your god now

bury me upside down
Track Name: Loss
I phoned God
And asked him to bring you back
But there was no answer on the other line
And that brought a smile to my face
You came as fast as you left
From the shot
I have nothing left
But these bite marks
And lost friendships

That's all I'll show for this

I was lost in the darkest night
And the lantern
Set me on fire

I came into this city as a saint
But I'll leave as the devil
When did I get so far away
I feel so trapped here
Like there's no way out
As the snow falls again
I remember
That I'm lost here

I lost health
When I lost you
I lost will

And when will I sleep again...
Track Name: The Carried Weight ft. Max Gouldner of Go Forth
You call yourself
A visionary of sorts
But all I see is a trail
Of mediocrity
That follows you home
Wherever you may roam
And I don't trust the words you speak

I don't want to go back to the place
Back to the day where i was rusted and cold
I don't want to go back to the place
Back to the days of old

You call yourself progressive
But i still see you standing in the same place

What am i supposed to do
But look at you
You've got me back on my heels

Pack your bags put your dream on the shelf
You're going straight to hell

But life goes on.

You call yourself progressive
But i still see you in the same place

This is my carried weight
Born to bear
Track Name: Closure
We came
We conquered
We took it all
Back from you
Because you lied
Lied to yourself again
We came from so far from here
To take back what's ours
We're back from the dead

We came, we conquered, we took it all
We're back from the dead

And I can see your face

(Chorus)
Hey this is closure
And it's knocking at my door
But I can't see straight
When my face hits the floor
Hey this is closure

We took it from you
I took back what's mine
I came back from the dead
I came so far from here
Let me see your flag of surrender
We're back from the dead

And you build these walls up
You sit in your room, wasting your life away
But you never found closure
You're wasted with thoughts of negativity
But you never found closure
Track Name: Bottomfeeder
What the fuck does this look like to you?
A fucking game?
You're wearing me on the wrong shoe

Because I wanna see what it looks like from here
When you got me back from the top
back from the top

Tell me one more lie
Was it ever even worth my time

It's over
Just give up, give up go home, you lost now
There's nothing left for you here

Incite a fucking riot
Watch their eyes bleed around you
Incite a fucking riot
You're wearing me on the wrong shoe

I want to watch you rot
Track Name: Pride
I was born with the fire in my eyes
made to take down every obstacle
that happened to cross my way
I made my way up the mountain
straight to the side of the peak
and everyone was watching me
setting me up to fail
watching me come undone

Watch the moment come and go
watching me come undone
you watched the moment come and go
watching me come undone

I need to swallow my pride
stick to the potential
I can't wake up dead anymore
you were all a part of me
and I threw that away
but I have this to say
I won't decay

and every morning I'd wake up
and I'd stare at the sunlight
peaking through my front window
and I looked in dismay
because the sky
would soon
fade to grey
and I've tried so hard
to live each day
like it was my last
but at the end of it all
I'll have this to say
I won't decay

my hope
is that we can stand here
and won't be taken away
by the northern misery
because we all fall down before
getting back up
And we won't be taken away
by the northern misery
Track Name: Pass On
My father always told me everything is temporary
That's one of the few things the old man was ever right about
And as I look through these photographs of the people I love
I love and hate
I came across one of you
I see your eyes burning blue, I see your eyes burning blue...

Here's to those we leave behind
Look through all of those forced smiles
Here's to those we leave behind
Burn through all of the photographs

Those that we leave behind
We leave shallow graves
We'll never let them go
We close the door
With our hearts left wide open
Icicles build on my eyes
From those that we leave behind

Trapped in the northern misery

Here's to those we leave behind
(Look through all of the faces that I love and hate)
Look at all of those forced smiles
(Here's to those we leave behind)
Here's to those we leave behind
(Here's to those, here's to those)

I see your eyes burning blue
And I don't need you anymore...
