Track Name: HARDSHIPS
I've been thinking about your health for too long
And how it's rubbed off on me. Restless ghosts that
walked over you, have finally set themselves free.
No man above could restore your faith in you and no
good company could ever pull you through. The lack
of purity, has washed you away, just a face of guilt and sin.
Did you trust a world, that turned it's back on you? And all those
angels, that listened to your thoughts. And those pills you sank
cus you knew the songs you sang would sell yourself short.
I've asked myself the same fucking questions, and I've struggled to let them go.
These ghosts will come for you, they'll get you when you're lost and alone, they'll take
apart of me, they'll take everything. When you walk through hell, I'll walk right next to you.
Through hell.
Track Name: OCTOBER PRESENT
October present has come so fast, and I know inside this could be our last.
Something so quick yet bitter sweet has left my bones so sour and weak.
These self assured words don't get me by, just words of regret that leave my whole throat dry.
I've become a burden to the very few and a blessing to those who won't lead me through.
How can I sit there and wait for it to end? This life is cruel to those who can't comprehend.
How can I sit there and wait for it to end? These doubts in my head won't take my soul I won't pretend. This noose is getting tighter, but it is so restricting, I can feel hell below my feet, the clock is ticking and the pendulum's swinging. These days are getting shorter, but it is so misleading, it's a chance I can take, the world is spinning and my mind is slipping.
For the days I long to stay, for the days that sink in me. Take me away, to the days I long to stay.
Familiar faces that were so silent and stained. Take me away, to the days I long to stay. Familiar faces that were so silent and stained. Forgotten souls, that were once rebel hearts, my youth is wasted, on the fools that tore me apart. I was told that "death is more perfect than life" I guess I'm the one, who turned their backs and lost sight, of all the things I wish I'd done, and all those roads I roamed to chase that familiar sun.
