Track Name: Grievance
Grievance

Hands to the dirt, as we accept the pain....

It's gonna cut you down when you fade away
Trying to cover up shit with the shit you've been giving
Hopeless hearts feel nothing to your touch
You'll just burn like the rest of the fucking cowards

The cruel hand of karma will collapse around you
Waiting for your move in a room of broken glass
Hands to the dirt as we accept this ducking pain
Of digging our own graves in places that we stand

We are rotting, designing our own slow death
So let these violins ring a solemn prayer for the weakened ones

Cut open your hands
Hang you up high
Dig your own fucking grave, you rat

It's gonna cut you down when you fade away
Trying to cover up shit with the shit you've been giving
Hopeless hearts feel nothing to your touch
You'll just burn like the rest of the fucking cowards

Trapped like a rat

I hope life kicks you to the fucking dirt
So you can dig up all you have left

Trapped like a rat in a cage of your own misery
Hands to the dirt as we accept this pain of digging our own graves

It's gonna cut you down when you fade away
Trying to cover up shit with the shit you've been giving
Hopeless hearts feel nothing to your touch
You'll just burn like the rest of the fucking cowards
Track Name: What's Left....
What's left...

Silence on your tongue speaks a thousand words
As we hold our breath in fear of finding answers to stones we left unturned...
Closed minds bury shallow graves
So why do we choose to live that way

Point your finger in the mirror
And accept wearing this shame
We don't deserve the right
Yet we're the ones to blame

So let the water begin to rise...

Fate sealed shut when our minds went numb
And the water began to rise

We can't hold our breath long enough to find truth within the road
We just close off our minds
Hope didn't come on time
So we settled for our own demise

We closed our minds and begged for fucking answers
But we're to weak to see the torch
So let us drown in sorrow
We're too fucked to see tomorrow..
We can find the door...

We cut the throat of our youth...

Fate sealed shut when our minds went numb
And the water began to rise(x2)
Track Name: Morning Whiskey
Slipping further away
Can't catch your breath from the currents ahead
You know the worst is yet to come
But you just close your eyes

Are you blinded by pride
Or away for your dirty hands
As you hold your breath for me
Cause I can see, that you can't save yourself
And it's not enough to ask for your word when, these scars cut deeper
Then we could ever see
Cut this tension as you fall under the silence

So all that's left is memories
And they cut to fucking deep

Morning whiskey numbs the pain
(Morning whiskey numbs the pain)
Removing yourself as you stepped away
Bottom of the barrel bled the Tennessee river.......dry!

Morning whiskey!

Leaned your head back and slowly slipped away
Emotion lies in the wake of your dreams
Holding onto what's left me
You lost the will to live as the sun came up...

Now all that's left is memories
And the cut to fucking deep

Morning whiskey numbs the pain
Removing yourself as you stepped away
Bottom of the barrel bled the Tennessee river
Dry!

Bled it dry
Morning whiskey
Numb this pain....
Track Name: Magnanimity
You left me here feeling broken
Kicked me to the dirt and walked away
From your selfishness and unforgiving words, I had to pick up all pieces
So now I finally get up, and get back to the road I knew, watching the flames on this bridge you burned
Cause it lights the path you'll never tread and you'll be the one left with nothing in the end

I'll take these words and hope it leaves you with nothing
Ive found peace in my misery
I don't wanna feel this anger
I just wanna watch you burn
From the damage done and the line I walked
For you, on this burning tightrope
It cuts deeper then wounds you see

With no one here to save me
Take the eyes of this storm and leave you with nothing

Remain, sustain, consequences
You weren't there to see the life you left behind
You just fell up into selfish arms of another man
Home wrecker
Youre just a harlot in disguise

My eyes are hollow
And I can't grip this sorrow
Holding onto pain, and the fear I have instilled
It's whats kept me whole
Thriving in the shadows

With no one here to save me
Take the eyes of this storm
And leave you with nothing
Track Name: Demagogue
Rusted gates from the tears of crying masses
Nailing in the silence on a cross of broken bones
The words preached aren't for forgiveness
They're only hear to fill the void
And comfort the arms of a lonely God
Who turned his back on your world

There will be no comfort
Only separation
These words you stood behind
But refused to act in the way we live
Let it come full circle
As it stems across your crooked veins
Carry on,claim your forgiveness
It won't be enough to be saved
From gods cruel hands

Your God must be lonely looking down on the hate we provide
You preach love and warmth
But in return you gave us warfare and genocide...
I hope you reach those rusted gates
They collapse upon your backs
So you can look into your saviors eyes
As he sets your soul ablaze

It's not enough....

Inner peace is found within the soul
But we kill off each other in the name of love
Cause we were born to choke

We were born to fucking choke

There will be no comfort just separation
These words
You stood behind
Let it come, full circle.....
