Track Name: Untraveled Roads
The streetlights reflect off this barren road, this winters colder than the last. A restless mind can make these nights to take a lifetime to pass. A lost cause in a stubborn kid, on my way to another dead end. But I'm watching the clouds come and go, there threatening for a long walk home. I'm pushing against a mold they've set. Down but not giving in. With each step I can't take back has lend me to where I am. And street by street it's harder to see exactly where I'm going. My mind wanders as my feet take the way, is this all I got left? For everything lost and everything gained an accumulation of me. I'm pushing against a mold they've set. Down but not giving in. I hear there whispers and my own self doubts in the back of my mind, it's clearer now. I'm torn between this untraveled road and a life chosen for me.
Track Name: Pieces of Myself
I don't want to look back and force myself to see those parts of my life that still haunt me. Because nothing will ever change those moments imprinted in the years. Time hasn't eroded my own mistakes, it's been a weight left on you. And I've hoped to erase those pieces of myself. And I know all the damage I've done. A second chance you never got, a closure I couldn't give. Now everything left unsaid and what we gave up on, overwhelms a place in me where this bitterness used to reside. And I've hoped to erase those pieces of myself. I've tried to bury the things that have fallen apart, the things that I've missed. I've uncovered what happened to us, amends I can't make.
Track Name: Cutting Our Ties
What's in you that's left to believe in when all the hope I had in you, has slowly faded away. Your selfish ways have dug this grave who I thought you were. An image I once refused to look past. I've held onto this, to the traces of your former self. But now I'm leaving this behind and cutting our ties. The truth was bound to be exposed behind the veil of mistrust, something ignored for far too long. From such a familiar smile, to now just a strangers face, things will never be the same. I've held onto this, to the traces of your former self. But now I'm leaving this behind and cutting our ties. Words spoken to deaf ears. Locked away for so many years. With each day that passes by, a silence echoes through a space, an empty shell of wasted memories. This neglected place, you've cast aside, is a home to a lost you.
Track Name: Sinking
You're not the only one who's looking for some kind of escape. Stuck in an endless routine of failed attempts to numb the pain. Now you're finally sinking. A future drowned in complacency. I've been there too at the bottom, a place so desperate for change. I've watched you turn away, so afraid of our own lives. The pressure has cracked the foundation laid. A pressure I won't let break me.
Track Name: A Reminder
How naive were we when we thought that those countless days would stay the same. So young and blinded, captivated in our youthful ways. And we remained hopeful that the tide couldn't break the promises made. But realization has it's way of opening our eyes to the coming waves. It's a reminder of what used to be. A price to pay for the lives we lead. Innocence got the best of us, now tangled in a life of uncertainty. Beaten and broken over the years, a will decayed with our age. Our dreams and ideals were shattered and what's left of the fragments is still a reflection of a past I could never escape. It's a reminder of what used to be. A price to pay for the lives we lead. We lost something that we can't get back. A piece of me, I won't forget.
