Track Name: No Heart
NO HEART

Your lies are like cancer.

You are like a disease to me.
Your face reminds me of yesterday.
Do you remember when we were friends way back then?
Well, times have changed.
Those days are gone.

The time has come to tell the truth.
Your lies are what holds us apart.
Decay.
The lies will eat straight through your heart.

Cold.
Your heart is bleeding through.
What have you got left to hold onto?
I've given up on you.
There’s nothing that I can do.
You lied to me, straight to my face.

The time has come to tell the truth.
Your lies are holding us apart.
Decay.
The lies will eat straight through your heart.
No heart.
Track Name: White Lies/ Black X
WHITE LIES / BLACK X

We stayed true while you strayed
Our life is positive
I think you fucking failed

Despite all you’ve done
I know that we’ll win

You sold out and you bought in
Everything you said: valuable as shit

Despite all you’ve done
I know that we’ll win
Every fucking word: they were all just white lies

Now that you’ve lost control
What have you really gained?
A bit of pleasure will give you a ton of pain
You say this ruined your life
You’re the only one I blame

Black X... Straight Edge
Track Name: Reflection
REFLECTION

You are holding on for your life...
but what about my life?
There’s no excuse and there’s no use.

You can't deny what it meant.
You can't remember where it went.

What's wrong with me?
Do I still believe?

I look in the mirror,
and question the years passed.
Things have changed, I've stayed the same.

You can't deny what it meant.
You can't remember where it went.

What's wrong with me?
Do I still believe?

I still believe.
Track Name: ...Is Dead
IS DEAD

17 years all I’d ever known
She went away and left us all alone
Fell off track and spiraled out of control
Always wanting to find something to hold

What is God really?
I know mine, she made me
Who is yours? I know mine.

Do you really love what you have never seen?
Mine isn't gone, she still influences me.
Offering me guidance through every day
Never once having to bow and pray.

Who is God really?
I know they created me.
Who is yours? I know mine (is dead)

By the time I finally found the right words to say
I said nothing because words get in the way

...but not gone.
Track Name: Hollow
HOLLOW

I will never forget. Ever.
We held these truths to our hands. Together.
Hold me down, forced to forget...
but what remains are no regrets.

You run, you hide, from what we believed.
I will never forget what those days meant to me.

You’re worthless. Complacent. You’re worthless.

I will never hold my breath for you because…
A friend, a man… you’re none of the above.
You’ve lost that spark,
that something that made you who you were.
I’ll never forgive you for your words.
Track Name: Sleeve
SLEEVE

Words cut like a blade,
and over time a friendship fades.
Now it breaks me in two,
every time that I see you.

My heart pulls my head.
Walk in my shoes and you'll see what I mean.

You don't know what friendship means.
You let the end justify the means.
I can't do this anymore.
It will never be like it was before.

My heart pulls my head.
Walk in my shoes and you'll see what I mean.

I wear my heart on my sleeve.
