Track Name: Full Skull
You've worn me down
For long enough
Bit my tongue until I tasted blood
I'll watch the hurt in the ones you've used
Tear you apart when it comes back to you
(Full skull)
I can't keep paying for this
In your debt, but I don't owe you shit
Sift through hell, or sit and suffer?
Guess it's time to decide...
To turn away, or let you pull me under..
You tried. failed.
It's so hard for you to see the truth
When you keep lying to yourself
And I'm searching, but can't find an ending
To this stupid game
Now I'm broken, calloused, drained
I burned the bridge, still the bridge remains
cause you can't... let go..
And my patience is wearing, and thinning
Why can't you see?
I lit the match so many times but you keep smothering the flame
Just burn
I won't go through this again
Don't look to me
I know you're drowning
I wouldn't reach out my hand for you anyway
The truth's
A heavy burden
There's no one left to blame
What goes around
Comes back around
And now you finally see
Full skull
Track Name: Bricks
featuring Daniel Rosen from Bitter End

Don’t think that I’ll hold my breath and wait for you to change
I let you in but kept you at arms length
Neglect the facts, turn your back, and let it slip away
Now you watch it fade
Nothing gained
Just bricks for brains
You know I couldn’t last knowing your agony was faked
You stole your words but used them anyway

I wish I could’ve seen the way it could’ve been
But if you’re so destructive then pull the fucking pin
You know I couldn’t last knowing your agony was faked
You swore you changed
Changed for the same
It won’t last…

Because the time you spend deceiving is never worth the time you waste
Trade away your sincerity for a 6 month face
Taking without reason
Push the rest away
Screaming for attention
Killing tradition
The guilty feel no shame
You’re on the edge
So now I’m edging you out
I’ve seen your two-faced grin
But who’s laughing now?

Watching the fall, I’ve seen it a thousand times
Another sucker bringing their own demise
Soul of nothing
Lying disgrace
False intentions, no direction, over the line
Strong front with terrified eyes
Out of chances, you’re choking on the lies
Times up, ran your own well dry
Falling over the edge, dead weight doesn’t fly
Track Name: Ill Intent / Cut The Rope
featuring Tyler Short from Another Mistake

You strung me up and bled me dry, like a wound that just won’t heal
I’m running out of sympathy for regret that I couldn’t kill
So I’m breaking the line, because wasting time was not my intention
It’s so selfish and sick, and there’s nothing to fix
So I sever resentment

If you remember; you relive
How many chances can you give?
Who’s to say what comes and goes, what stays and makes you crawl?
But I’m breaking the line, because wasting time was not my intention
It’s a goddamn waste counting my mistakes
And If I said it, I meant it

Swing the noose and see that it’s your neck it wrings…
Or cut the rope that keeps you hanging

But it’s grown into this constant hate, knowing time will never change
The dull pain like the ache of a broken knuckle every time I hear your name
I let myself feel nothing until it starts again
Turn you into nothing in the end
Track Name: Drag
I’ve been clawing for an exit
Been misdirected
Seconds pass like days
Cling to life and leave empty handed
The mirror shows a strangers face
And I’ve been burning at both ends
So far gone

Wound up, I feel the dead weight dragging on and on
But I never thought I’d hate myself
Past the point of saving
I can’t live for someone else
No one else

You held me down
I couldn’t take it
How was I supposed to react?
Make a dog feel trapped for long enough and it’ll bite you back

Never knew of the cross I’d bear once I crossed your mind
No restraints
My eyes are open wide this time
Still, I never thought I’d hate myself
Once past the point of saving
I won’t die for someone else

I’m at grips with how sick I’ve made myself
I’ll be the one to take the pain
Nobody else
And defy the hand I’m dealt
