Track Name: It All Means Nothing
i needed to get in
needed to build myself a wall
before the war begins
every step i take
is tugging at the chains
but i never feel them break


i thought i could stand
i wanted to believe the truth
was somewhere in my hands
your many faces drive me mad
i need to know you're through with me
to know that i've been had

and it all means nothing to you
the maelstrom that surrounds me
the hell you put me through
and it all means nothing to you

your beauty is so marred
i used to love to look at you
but now it is too hard
i once had such faith
you have been my everything
and my greatest mistake

and it all means nothing to you
the maelstrom that surrounds me
the hell you put me through
and it all means nothing to you

and it all means nothing to you
the maelstrom that surrounds me
the hell you put me through
and it all means nothing to you
Track Name: Cold
It all falls like candy through the hands of those who never want
When you forget you're still the same fuck who had nothing
And all the things I desire that I will not ever have
And I hold my breath to feel you slipping

I cannot help it if I'm cold
How else would you have me to be
Here I am broken in my prime
And that is what you wanted to see

When you're in the mirror can you see the things that you've become
Living in the box this world has made you
The things you've built your faith upon will turn to dust
All of your faith is going to break you

I cannot help it if I'm cold
How else would you have me to be
Here I am broken in my prime
And that is what you wanted to see

Living the dream to sell your, to sell your
(It's so much easier to pretend)
Living the dream to sell your, to sell your
(To walk away than to defend)
Living the dream to sell your, to sell your
(So close your eyes, you hate to see)
Living the dream to sell your, to sell your
Name
You have your empty words to justify what I am not
You always thought you were that perfect
Tell me you know it well but you cannot show the scars
Pain isn't free you have to earn it

I cannot help it if I'm cold
How else would you have me to be
Here I am broken in my prime
And that is what you wanted to see
Track Name: What Does It Mean?
Who were you then
You were led
By a facade of a god that you thought was true
And what did you get
My tears and regret
Ignorance now in full view

In your grief
In your hour of freedom
Here where you stand on your own
In your need
To be someone you're not
Here where you are all alone
In your grief

Forget the loss
Pandora's box
Why did I open it up again
Tried to save you from slipping
But I've only made it much worse instead
If I made the choice, You
You you
Would love me in the way that I love you
But the damage is done
I hate to watch you fall again

In your grief
In your hour of freedom
Here where you stand on your own
In your need
To be someone you're not
Here where you are all alone
In your grief
In your hour of freedom
Here where you stand on your own
In your need

On your own
In the grief that you've sown
You're all alone
Track Name: Safe Distance
The way I move becomes a farce
And you feel you must let go
To save yourself from the whirlpool
Of that I must love you so

You see that I am blind
You see my shadows
You see my true self
You see me hollow
You see me lost
You see my fear
You see...
You see the things no one ever sees
You lose yourself because of me

Hey beautiful, don't cry
I love you more than anything or anyone could ever
Lost inside the mirrored house that is my pain
Hey beautiful, don't cry
I love you more than anything or anyone could ever
There is so much I lose and noone left to blame

The damage I have done becomes so real
And you feel you must relent
Leaving you to fend for me
Now all of you is spent

You see that I am blind
You see my shadows
You see my true self
You see me hollow
You see me lost
You see my fear
You see...
You see the things no one ever sees
You lose yourself because of me

Hey beautiful, don't cry
I love you more than anything or anyone could ever
Lost inside the mirrored house that is my pain
Hey beautiful, don't cry
I love you more than anything or anyone could ever
There is so much I lose and noone left to blame

I have the will too late
I fear that you will run away
I need to have you near me
But I cannot make you stay

You see that I am blind
You see my shadows
You see my true self
You see me hollow
You see me lost
You see my fear
You see...
You see the things no one ever sees
You lose yourself because of me
Track Name: Earthquake
I said chaos once, so naive
I had no idea we'd be a casualty
What a fool I was
To let you see me want

You, the same
It has never changed
It was nothing to you then
And it has never changed

I held to you once, so it seems
I should have known this would be easy for you to wipe clean
What a fool I was
To let you take control

You, the same
It has never changed
It was nothing to you then
And it has never changed
(Asleep but restless - vacant and safe)
Me, my pain
It has never changed
Something for you to gain
And it has never changed

(Faceless destruction - I've lost control)


And I am so fucking happy for you
You have what you wanted so
And in a moment of nonchalance
You told me what I did not want to know
Nothing of satellites, of rifts
How this would feel
This, my hell, this earthquake
Swallows all that I thought real


You, the same
It has never changed
It was nothing to you then
And it has never changed

Me, my pain
It has never changed
Something for you to gain
And it has never changed
Track Name: Futility
I see my eyes and they are closed
I feel your hands - they want more
I have seen what's in your "soul"

By your own admission, I was a pawn
I had what you wanted wrapped up and kept warm
How could I believe this long?

We are all for nothing
We are all for nothing

I got sucked in and you made me pay
I was your demon, your muse, your slave
Here I am beyond you, what do you have to say?

We are all for nothing
We are all for nothing

You told me I should not run
But the weapon was loaded, you brought me the gun

We are all for nothing
We are all for nothing
We are all for nothing
We are all for nothing
Track Name: Your Gravity
Eleven-thirty eyes on the road
I've got this bomb at my center and it's gonna explode
Good God tells me "hide the truth"
I should but that doesn't mean that I don't want to

Take you down
Breathe you in
Fearless lies
Don't make sin

I will be released
Learn to love the beast
That makes me never cease
To feel your gravity

Maybe someday I'll have faith
That I can fit myself into a box that I don't break
For now need melds with lust
Of all the metaphors, reality - which do I trust?

Will I

Take you down
Breathe you in
Fearless lies
Don't make sin

I will be released
Learn to love the beast
That makes me never cease
To feel your gravity

I will let it go for you
If that's what you want me to do
I will suppress everything
If that's what you want from me
I will lay it down for you
If that's what you want me to do
I will learn restraint for you
But I don't think
You want me to

I will be released
Learn to love the beast
That makes me never cease
To feel your gravity

I will be released
Heaven's back to me
It makes me never cease
To feel your gravity

To feel your gravity
Track Name: Stray Bullets
started packing at the age of seventeen
your mamma begging you to keep your nose clean
but you wanted a piece of everything
and who would wake themselves from such a dream

Oh a way to find your bleeding heart some rest
Oh A way to feel your head upon her chest
Oh Awakened to the sound of nevermore
Oh Suddenly there's nothing that is sure

the lilies wait for no one
and they do not compromise
they do not compromise
stray bullets wait for no one
and they do not compromise
they do not compromise

played the roulette with your daddy's big gun
Thought what it was to have a little fun
But a waste of life is what those games become
The only way to get out of feeling numb

Oh the feelings are a million miles away
Oh The things you always wanted her to say
Oh Awakened to the sound of nevermore
Oh Suddenly there's nothing that is sure

the lilies wait for no one
and they do not compromise
they do not compromise
stray bullets wait for no one
and they do not compromise
they do not compromise

Awash in light too bright to own
There it was - broken, alone
Glamour of solidarity
But that's the only way to be

Oh too many drinks, a room of empty haze
Oh Are these the things your father might have craved?
Oh Awakened to the sound of nevermore
Oh Suddenly there's nothing that is sure

the lilies wait for no one
and they do not compromise
they do not compromise
stray bullets wait for no one
Track Name: It's All Over
I would never tell you how to live
Your life has always been your own
Regardless of what you think I want
I just wanted to be home
For you I
Carried all these lofty burdens
Until my back was bound to break
Nailed to the soundness of my vision
I am the one who you forsake

It's all over now
Although I know that I meant well
Bury the hatchet with the best of my intentions
And I will learn to save myself

I wish I had some straws to grasp at
That would be more than thinning air
My breathing is becoming shallow
And you don't really seem to care
If I am
Falling on my own illusions
Of all the beauty in your words
Coming to the wrong conclusions
A blind belief in what I heard
It's all over now
Although I know that I meant well
Bury the hatchet with the best of my intentions
And I will learn to save myself
