Track Name: Living, Forever
As the world spins
And I stand still
All these empty days
That I can't fill
Your sorrow eyes and hollow mind
You were everything that I'd need
Now you only live in my mind
Please don't leave please don't leave
Still I hear the things
That you once said
Like the time you whispered
"I never want this to end"

As these days fade away
And I lay alone in bed
I feel empty all the time
Since you've been hanging by your thread
And I can't believe the sight
Of you closer to the edge
Just come back five steps
Cause I don't want this to end

But you're so lost
Inside your head
As you waste away
I think you're better off dead

But you won't hear me speak
Cause i'll be gone
You'll be fine without me
Cause life goes on
Track Name: Seasonal Depression
And I can't keep my mouth shut
I should have just stayed home
I'm a fucking piece of shit
I hope I die alone

Feel the autumn breeze
There's nothing here for me
Feel the autumn breeze
I'll die happily

I'm such a fucking mess
I know I don't belong
If I was nothing with out you
I was nothing all along
Track Name: Treading
It feels like I'm drowning all the time
I just struggle for air in hopes I get out alive
You just sit here and waste away
You just smoke till it hurts and wait for the day

The day that I need you again
To make me feel less lonely and anxious inside my head
Cause I feel like I'm dying all the time
I just pray and I pray and I pray that I'm doing alright

Cause you said you're drowning all the time
You just struggle and struggle and struggle in hopes you survive
As I just sit here and waste away
I just smoke till hurts and wait for the day

The day that you need me again
To make you feel less lonely and anxious inside your head
The day that you leave me again
But I know and You know and we know that you're already dead
Track Name: Carrying Weight
You lay there lying in the grass
All i heard was how much time has passed
Never thought that it would die this fast
But i guess you're right, our time has passed

You had to go
There was no time
You had to go

(And I wish it didn't make such mess)
Crashing my car
(Into the the trees that you used to live by)
So you could see, what you do to me

I gave my all,
I'm sorry I couldn't give you the sun
You'll stick around like the smoke in my lungs
So sick of carrying weight
So sick of carrying weight

Atleast I can say that I tried
I'll give you all that's mine
I'll break my self for you
I'll drive all night for you
I'll drive through inches of snow
Without nowhere to go
Annnnnnnnnnnd
You won't bring me back again


Actions speak louder then your cries
Actions speak louder then your lies
Track Name: Head Cold
Throw me away
I've seen much better days
You left me alone
But I cant feel this way

I lay in my bed
Contenplate why
Why is it I cant feel nothing for life

I try to help but the guilt kicks in
Wondering why it has to end this way
The earth still spins as people walk
Break me away
I've seen much better days

Maybe I'll give up
All my hope
I have invested in this
World I know
I strive for optimism but I can't hold on
I try to open my eyes
But it's already gone
Track Name: Windchill
I wrote you a letter
I don't think you'll see it
But I can't reach you
You're too far gone
Winter feels like forever
When you're just passing time
When you've lost all your meaning
You've lost your life

Your ghost, still haunt this home
Hoping to find you one day
Pale skin, and bright green eyes
Begging for you just to stay
Old songs, still in my head
Ring out until I can't hear
Nightmares coming to life
And you were my biggest fear

You're hollow
Just like these winter months
You're so empty
But you felt so alive to the touch
I heard your voice
You were right here where you belonged
Within my reach
But I woke up and you were gone

And I'm always living in false hope
That youll come back to me and say that you're sorry
And that I was right all along
I heard your voice again today
You softly spoke my name
You rested your head
But You were never there
Track Name: Lacuna
It hits like the wind on a cold bitter night
Just like the feeling consciously growing blind
To everything
That surrounds you
When you were like me
With nothing to lose

You said forever
I heard you promise
You said forever
You broke your promise

I hope that this song rips you apart
The same way that you did to me
And I hope when you're out there alone in the wind
The feeling reminds you of me
(And how that)

You said forever
I heard you promise
You said forever
You broke your promise
Track Name: Skin
My skin
The seven paper layers where I live
Lighter than a feather in the wind
With no consent on where I'm going
The only thing I know is floating

I guess I'm just not meant for this
I guess I wasn't born to win

You know I wrote this song for you
Why don't you just tell me the truth
Tell me why I'm so delicate
Why can't I live life in your skin

Your skin
Is the only thing that I'll call perfect
It's the only thing in life with purpose
The seven painted layers of canvas
Even after the pain you were handed

I guess I'm just not meant for this
I guess I wasn't born to win

You know I wrote this song for you
Why don't you just tell me the truth
Tell me why I'm so delicate
Why can't I just live in your skin

And I'm such a waist of skin
Track Name: Shame
Everything that you said to me
While laying in my bed with me
Did you mean it?
Forever is a promise that you can't break
You swept me off my feet
You kept me from all the pain
But has anyone told you
You can't force fate

How did these scars get so deep
You let me go and now I can't breath
I hate the way you treated us
I hate the way you treated me
I can't believe what you said
Everything, Everything's wrong
Now that it's all done
Now that you are gone

Like the house that you live inside
I feel empty and cold and in doubt
I've been falling apart from the inside out
And the smoke that you breathe in
Smoking your cigarettes
As you bath in the sunlight
And the smell of regret
Like days of this winter
Im here to remind you that
You will always feel empty
You will always feel sad

How did these scars get so deep
You let me go and now I can't breath
I hate the way you treated us
I hate the way you treated me
I can't believe what you said
Everything, Everything's wrong
Now that it's all done
Now that you are gone

Like the feeling of sinking
That's inevitable
Ill be pulling you down with me
I'm the reason you drown
