Track Name: Before I Self-Destruct
Falling into complacency is such an easy path I refuse to embrace.

I always felt like there is more for us than this and I refuse to feel this weak.
We can’t run from who we are, can’t run from what we’re meant to be.
We can’t run from who we are, I can't escape from myself. It's time to break free.

The paths we took to get where we are, were not paved with gold but we had the best intentions.
We’ve all lost love in the name of lust it brought us here with empty eyes and the same old feeling that what we want is never what we need,
that what we need is always out of reach. It’s what we need but it's still so far to succeed.

We can’t run from who we are, can’t run from what we’re meant to be.
We can’t run from who we are, I can't escape from myself. It's time to break free.

From now on, my toughts and my will have to converge in the same direction,
because i’ve been swimming against the currents. I’ve held my head in my hands and I felt shame,
I’ve held my head in my hands. I’ve held my head in shame.

Run from who we are. Run from what we’re meant to be.
Track Name: Distance
I've finally come to terms
that I'll never be who I wanted to be, set me free.
I'm finally content with knowing where I stand,
wherever that may be.

I'm sick of staring at old pictures of better days
I've been running in circles my own head and I’m not even sure
what I was looking for from the start,
that's if I ever looked for anything at all.

The anger that some of us felt at such a young age is hard to define.
We were left bitter and bruised and all of us know that scars will remain.

Foudations have crumbled and left me hollow.
We were left behind,
never had a choice,
the product of a broken home.

Where I am, where I've been ?
I guess I'll never know.
cause' there are answers that I need to find
I can't seem to find them in here.

Where I am, where I've been
I guess I'll never know
cause' there are answers that I need to find
I can't find them within myself.
Track Name: Surrender
How much longer wil I have to keep runing ? Will it ever make sense to me ?
To be the one that's always standing, the one standing on the fault line.

Im always standing on the fault line.

Can you remember when everything was brighter and we were standing for something back then ?
Those days seem so far away since I watched all of my friends leave the bay.
Everybody moved on with their lives except me, I'm still stuck here wasting away.
It's killing me to see that time passing is me by, time is passing me by.

Lately I've been feeling so weak and I've let everything slip trough my hands
but if you look at it it this way, it took me everything I had to let go,
to let go of all the things I can't control.

How much longer wil I have to keep runing ? Will it ever make sense to me ?
To be the one that's always standing, the one standing on the fault line.

I'm still standing on the fault line.

All my demons wont take control of who I am.
I've been letting myself down for far too long.
I've let myself down.
Track Name: Bitter (ft. Michael from Feels Like Home)
Good god I think I did it again,
I traded my morals for false comfort

I've been high as the highest heights and saw the deepest low, sleepless nights and so it seems that all the things I thought would save me turned out to be the end of me

So what's the point or purpose of heading in this direction
Nothing makes sense to me anymore, nothing makes sense

I'm throught waiting on the world to change
because I know that things will always stay the same

I've lost everything just trying to separate myself from the things that were holding me back

I'll never hope for the best
I'll never pray for rain
You'll never see me on my knees
I'm just hoping that things work themselves out in the end
'Cause I just can't keep on living this way
I've let myself down for far too long
I take the blame for my own misery

I take the blame for my own misery
I tied the noose, I kicked my own chair
