Track Name: Promise
This is the greatest lie I've ever told,
I'm okay I'm just fine,
you meant everything, this meant everything.

I will get past this any way I can,
my thoughts sink to the floor.
I will get past this any way I can,
I begin to drown.

How could I let this go?
I turned around and I got a knife in my back.
Deceit it kills, despair envelopes.
I start to drown.

This is the greatest truth I've ever told.
I'm not okay, I'm not fine
You never meant anything,
this never meant anything.(x2)

I don't give a fuck about my life,
I'lll drown this into oblivion.
I don't give a fuck about my life,
I'll drown this into oblivion.

I'm drowning (x2)

This is the realization I've made,
I'm a fool I'm just fine
I was absorbed, but now I'm free.

This is the promise I've made to myself,
This will never happen again.
The empty bottles I once knew,
Are now long and gone and I'm free.

How could I live with this?
When it means nothing.
I've found my clarity and I will live my life.
Track Name: Groundbreaker
How, can I make myself more clear?
I don't give a fuck what you think.
How, can I make myself more clear?
I don't give a fuck what you say.

You all held me up, on the "wings of god"
I should've known. You were all fake.
I should've known. You'd let me fall.

Now, tell me the fucking truth.
I, I see right through your facade.
Did you think I wouldn't know?
Did you think I wouldn't find out?

You're paper thin! I see right through you
You're paper thin.
Your bullshit can't touch me.
I will rise up, you're so far below me.
Some friends you were,
you turned your backs on me.
Well look at me now (well look at me now)
I'm above this, I'm above this shit.

You mean nothing to me.
Track Name: Mirrors
My mistakes are a summary of my life!
But this won't be the last time.
I will, let you down.
This won't be the last time
That I fail.
I've asked you so many questions,
but you never answer them!
Are you really there are you real?
And now I know,
You are what holds me back.
Make no mistake!
You are what always helds me back.
You are what, holds me back.
You are what always held me back.
You are what, holds me back.
You are what always held me back.
What I, see in you
Is everything I hate all of my disdain
Is alive, in you.
How long does it take to be forgave?
When will I earn forgiveness?
When will I be forgave?
When will I earn forgiveness?
When will I be forgave?
I'll be here when you want me gone.
I'll be all that you need.
When you want me gone,
I'll be right where you stand.
Everything that you hate is alive in me.
But I'll be all that you need.
When you want me gone!
I'll be standing right here
But I won't fail you!
I won't, let you down!
These are my sins written down on page.
They have the best of me.
I will never earn,
Forgiveness.
I am unpure, unclean, unholy.
I will never reach the path for me.
I am a failure.
So leave the past, in the past.
It was all a lie.
I was looking right in the mirror.
I am what holds me back.
I am what always held me back.
These are my short comings.
I will always hate me.
And when you look in the mirror,
What do you see?
I see a monster.
But I won't fail you.
I won't, let you down.
I won't fail you.
I won't let you down.
I won't fail you.
I won't let you down.
But I've let you down.
Track Name: Today
I'm in everything that has gone wrong in my life!
In every wrong that I have done I've found!
I've found myself, I've found myself!
And this is where my heart calls home.

In every second you had control over me.
I wasn't living. But now!
I've found myself, I've found myself.
I'll never lose my path again.

OH.
This is where my heart calls home,
You can't take this from me.
This is where my heart, calls home.
This is where my heart calls home.

But now, I've left you in my past.
Theres nothing left for you here.
You've lost control and I've moved on.
Move on, just move on.

I pushed you out of my life, for being vile and vindictive
But still your venom finds my veins.
You've sunk your teeth in further,
Than I ever knew.
This is the venom in my veins
This is the venom in my, veins.

But I am so much bigger than this
and I have devestated everything in my path.
But this is so much different than before,
I haven't even had to second guess myself this time.
You had "the best of me"
I have the rest of me.

I'm in everything that has gone wrong in my life!
In every wrong that I have done I've found!
I've found myself, I've found myself!
And this is where my heart calls home.

What happened to your control?
I've broken these shackles, that weigh me down.
And now I'm free, now I'm free.
I have found my path.

This is where I find myself,
This is where I set things right.
There is so much under the surface,
You couldn't hope to comprehend.
There is so much more to me than you grasp!
I have so much more potential.
And I will overcome my past,
I will overcome my past.

It's the only thing standing in my way,
Who I am, who I was
And every memory I've left behind.
And I will burn in hell for my sins,
Theres nothing you can do to save me.
I will burn in hell.
I will burn in hell.

You are a fucking snake.
You've sunk your fangs into my veins.
You had me eat the apple,
When I was not the one who plucked it.
I will not stand for this,
I will not. Stand for this.
This is the venom in my veins,
I will not let you go.

This is the venom in my veins,
I won't let you go.(x4)
Track Name: The Adversity
You make me sick.
Your existence plagues my mind.
I don't know why you live.
You stand for nothing.
Why do you live?

Your false beliefs, fall on deaf ears.
Who gave you your crown?
So leave the preaching to the preachers,
and the lying to the liars.
We both know right where, you stand.

Your words instill hate.
In the hearts and minds of those.
Of those, who follow you.
This will be a fucking crusade.
Led by, your hand.
So kill the weak while you can,
your bloodstained hands won't save you,
Anymore.

Be careful what you wish for,
because you just might!
Be carefule what you wish for,
because you just might get it.

This world we live in,
Is full of malice, is full of hate.
We succumb, to lifes downfalls.
We're giving in slowly, we let go.
We're giving in slowly, we let go.

When life gets the best of us,
we let go.
When life gets the best of us,
we let go.

I will never let go!

I will never let go,
when life falls upon us.
And it breaks my back.
I will never let go.
When all hope has failed me.
And it takes my breath.
I will never let go.

I will never let go.

Your false beliefs fall on deaf ears.
I took your fucking crown.
We left the preaching to the preachers,
and you told all your lies.
We always knew right where you'd stand.

You make me sick.
Track Name: Hail Hydra
Do you know what it's like to be afraid of your shadow?
Afraid of yourself?
Look at me I am a fucking monster.
What is this I have become?
Pain and sorrow,
Follows my path.
You've all branded me this,
It wasn't my choice!
I'm not this.
Oh god, save my from this curse.
This is not who I am.
Torment, fills my heart and soul.
Save me!
Save me, from myself!
I don't know how to,
right all the wrongs I've done.
But I can't run from this,
I won't hide from this.
This is the way it ends.
Oh god, leave me with this curse!
This is just who I am.
Pleasure, fills my every move.
Leave me!
Take it, all.
All I am.
Is yours to take from me,
Leave nothing left.
I won't run. I can't run.
Hell will fear my presence,
I will stand my ground.
Hell will fear me.
Track Name: Chivalry Is Dead
You used to live, by higher standards.
Your words meant everything.
Your beliefs stood higher than mountains.
Overshadowing all of me.

This is what you wanted.
To reign alone.This is what you wanted.
To die along.

Is a man, measured by triumphs,
Or is it integrity?
Your beliefs stood higher than moutains,
Overshadowing all of me.

This is what you wanted,
To reign alone.
This is what you wanted.

How am I supposed to live with myself?

Chivalry is dead.
Off with his head.

You used to live, by higher standards.
Your words meant everything.
Your beliefs stood higher than mountains.
Overshadowing all I see.

This is what you wanted,
To reign alone.This is what you wanted,
To die alone.
