Track Name: Forgive // Resurface
I will sink by my own accord,
delving deep with that cold grip on the back of my skull.
The moon sits watching and it's pale light pierces away,
leaving me calm and blinded.
From this blue state I will bloom,
constantly reminding myself to forgive and resurface;
to forget and remember to breathe.
Track Name: Deep Wells
I've lost my bearings in a familiar place,
caught here staring through the space of a past life.
It's all been said and done.
I've found myself, I find myself,
I'm finding out that I won't ever have it all figured out.
To be built up, to be destroyed, to progress colorfully.
My head swells and these lines pour out from me like dreams,
into my own deep wells. I'm delving deeper,
gathering the nerve to bite down and swallow my own shadow.
To become one with all the sadness and dark
that's made me hesitate til now.
The choice to drown is mine alone.
Track Name: Carve Away, I Still Remain
Cold coasts take me back to the days when I could just feel nothing.
I spent months burning books to keep me warm.
I spent months building walls out of hollowed thoughts.
Only to realize that the worst parts f myself are needed to be whole.
I refuse to die a captive of my own mind. I can't afford to stay here any longer.
Because no one will ever be who I think they are, and I will never be who you think I should be.
This life belongs to me, and the promises I've carried here have come too far to be buried with me.
I refuse to die a captive of my own mind.
I can't afford to stay here any longer.
Because the faith of others is what keeps me going
and faith is all I have left.
To all the misfortune ahead: CARVE AWAY, I STILL REMAIN.
Track Name: Runner's Blood
I've got runner's blood in me, a forefathers coagulant.
The will of others pass through, given the fact that I am still myself and no one else.
It doesn't take much to surface what's been passed down.
A couple of hardships here and there,
leading me to abandon this and everything.
I am my own enemy.
I am my own-- A father's impression;
fueled enough, reduced enough to almost nothing. (I live on..)
Years past; this man grew to be sound, put in front of the earth to withstand. (I've got runner's blood in me.)
Built my cavern sturdy. Dug my trenches deep enough.
I'm here to endure, nothing more.
Track Name: Pale // Light
Instrumental
Track Name: Grave Ones
How much of you will stay?
How much of you will flow away with the current?
As the days become recycled, as our time becomes more precious.
It's more apparent that even though I've grown fully rooted,
but I'm not fully realized.
I watch my youth race against the wind; open arms.
Reaching for those who have yet to find their place.
The seasons encircle me. One by one,
I trace what's brought me here.
It's night like these that I grip my choices by the throat.
I lay them out for a moment and understand that some ties are meant to be severed.
I have brought myself to this peak,
on it I proclaim that I still have a fighting spirit.
I hold onto these everlasting eyes and see it through till the end.
A vision granted by love, a dreamer too stubborn to heel over and die. Oh grave ones, oh grave ones, your crowns are meaningless.
Track Name: Growing Routine
All that's been will change.
In time our days will fade.
My young skin will turn to rust,
And our dreams will go with the wind.

I was born to lose
Those thoughts, I can't escape.
I fight this everyday,
but i will always lose.

Watch these eyes turn to cataracts,
These clouds will take my sight.
Look in the mirror, my hair grows gray.
Just as the color of life runs away.

All that's been will change.
In time our days will fade.
My young skin will turn to rust,
And our dreams will go with the wind.

As we age, we suffer through these growing pains.
Hold on to this feeling.
(As we age…)

All that's been will change.
In time our days will fade.
My young skin will turn to rust,
And our dreams will go with the wind.

All I think about
is the way things change.
And those nights evaporate,
Like all the colors that we made.
They get lost in air.
Track Name: Ma
If my thoughts could keep you alive, I'd never stop thinking of you.
If I could take on these injustices, I'd go through hell to save you.
If I could just say, "Goodbye, I love you."
I'd never stop thinking of you.
I remember a time when my face was full of vitality and my eyes full of innocence.
I remember when suppressing thoughts to feel comfort was just a null concept.
Back then, the world felt as if it was colored warm by rubies and emeralds.
This absence is real and it leaves me shattered.
Then her lungs failed, as she exhales grey and everything turns black and white on me.
Grandmother, my grand protector, my shield and sword was gone.
This is in honor of you.
This is in hopes that I will break the infinite silence that separates us.
This absence is real and it leaves me shattered.
Death is the great divider, but in memories true kindness still shines through.
And in nothingness we can still find meaning,
because in nothingness the lives we've loved will never be forgotten.
Every bond still means something now, as it will years from now.
