Track Name: Remind
Remind
- A. Coulstring/R. Johnson

Like a punch in the face
Like a sucker played
In state of constant amaze... till replaced

Failure has brought me here
You don't have to remind me
Your position is crystal clear
You don't have to remind me
No longer see humor
My patience is screaming
To leave you behind me
Erased from my memory
You will never remind me again

Like a punishment
So intensely real
Conditioned cold
Ashamed to feel

Failure has brought me here
You don't have to remind me
Your position is crystal clear
You don't have to remind me
No longer see humor
My patience is screaming
To leave you behind me
Erased from my memory
You will never remind me again

Solo

I see you clearer now
Sniffing around
Leading me on
Hand on my heart
Knife in my back
Not wasted
It kills you to be
This hated

Failure has brought me here
You don't have to remind me
Your position is crystal clear
You don't have to remind me
No longer see humor
My patience is screaming
To leave you behind me
Erased from my memory
You will never remind me again

Track Name: Save Yourself
Save Yourself
- R. Johnson/A. Coulstring/T. Garagan

Hey,
So you think you can take me?
Wanna sit and debate me?
Well I ain't got the time
Stop trying to save me
Kneel down while you praise me
It's me that you envy
An this you can't deny

Hey!
Nothing left to say?
Covering?
A cowards way
How do you live with your shame

Hey!
Nothing left to say?
Covering?
A cowards way
Is this how you live with your shame

Ohhh
You're delusional and you should save yourself
It's true you know
You're delusional and you should save yourself

Quit praying for my soul
I've long ago let go
Paving the long road
To how I'll say goodbye
Unafraid
Of you God or of your hell
Judging life is a hard sell
To the other side

Hey!
Nothing left to say?
Covering?
A cowards way
How do you live with your shame
Hey!
Nothing left to say?
Covering?
A cowards way
Is this how you live with your shame

Ohhh
You're delusional and you should save yourself
It's true you know
You're delusional and you should save yourself

Solo

Ohhh
You're delusional and you should save yourself
It's true you know
You're delusional and you should save yourself
What do you know
You're delusional and you should save yourself
Nothing personal
You're delusional and you should save yourself

Track Name: Broken Dream
Broken Dream
- R. Johnson, A. Coulstring, C. Brown

So lonely inside
Is this your hide away
Look me in the eye
Is it better to die this way

There was a time
You lived a brighter day
What will help you forget
Why you’re scarred this way

Is this your way
To remember
Tell me now, cause
I can’t hear you, crying
Of your broken dream

This is your way
To remember
Tell me now, cause
I can’t hear you, crying
Of your broken dream

So painful inside
You poison your veins
You feel so numb but
Memories are the same

Get down on your knees
You pray for relief
I can help forget in
All that you ever believed

Track Name: Afterthought
Afterthought
- A. Coulstring, C. Brown, R. Johnson

You say that I never mattered at all
We’ll see who stands and who’s taking the fall
I feel you now knew from the start
You had your fill and you’ve blown it apart

Blown it apart
Left with only one
Take your ball and run
The way you always do

I’m your afterthought
Last on your list again
I’m no afterthought
I won’t be missed again

A stepping stone, means to an end
Off making plans I never fit in
You’re damaged goods can’t love you use
Cry foul as you spin the abuse

You spin the abuse
Left with only one
Hide from everyone
The way you always do

I’m your afterthought
Last on your list again
I’m no afterthought
I won’t be missed again
I’m your afterthought
Last on your list again
I’m no afterthought
I won’t be missed again
I won’t be missed again
Last on your list again
The hell with your list I win

Track Name: Silhouette
Silhouette
- R. Johnson/S. McKenzie/A. Coulstring

I saw you slither like a serpentine
Through the dark side of me
Caught when you said
Divide and conquer me
Please
Divide and conquer me
Please

Did you wanna make a bet
That this isn't over yet
Always ready always set
Your crazy just excites me
Wet
Burn me with your cigarette
And I suddenly forget to forget
I'm hung up on your silhouette

I caught a glimmer of light in your eye
The kind of sparkle even bad girls can't hide
Arrive and conquer me
Please
Arrive and conquer me
Please

Did you wanna make a bet
That this isn't over yet
Always ready always set
Your crazy just excites me
Wet
Burn me with your cigarette
And I suddenly forget to forget
I'm hung up on your silhouette

Let me catch my breath
I've been a bad bad boy
She's coming at me again
She wants more
You'll only get so far
Till you lower the bar
Surprisingly on par
You find you're mistaken
Taking you nowhere
Met with intense stare
Her system's got flare
Think I can take it?

Did you wanna make a bet
That this isn't over yet
Always ready always set
Your crazy just excites me
Wet
Burn me with your cigarette
And I suddenly forget to forget
I'm hung up on your silhouette

Track Name: So Long
So Long
- Rock Johnson, A. Coulstring

I know you've got your moments
But all they are is moments
And I want more
Let down and the torment
Passion dies here dormant
What's to stay here for

Don't mistake my ambition
For what you don't give
I will take this all on
I will take this all on
To be done with it

And I'm tired of waiting
Tired of begging
It's been so long
(And I don't hate you)
Time's been dragging
Tired of carrying you along
(I want to hate you)

You say it's just a long shot
You're happier with no shot
Than to try at all
Merge into your failure
A star that shines in nowhere
Another built to fall

Don't mistake my intentions
Or the way I live
I will take this all on
Take this all on
To be done with it

And I'm tired of waiting
Tired of begging
It's been so long
(And I don't hate you)
Time's been dragging
Tired of carrying you along
(I want to hate you)

You let me down
Let me down
Let me down
You let me down
Let me down
Let me down

Solo

And I'm tired of waiting
Tired of begging
It's been so long
(And I don't hate you)
Time's been dragging
Tired of carrying you along
(I want to hate you)
And I'm tired of waiting
Tired of begging
It's been so long
(And I don't hate you)
Time's been dragging
Tired of carrying you along
(I want to hate you)

I'll shine in this moment alone...

Track Name: Dead Inside
Dead Inside
- R. Johnson/C, Brown/A. Coulstring

Where Am I
This doesn’t feel real
All that I see
Is nothing I feel
Let loose a kill for the future
Replace one hate for another

I’m confused inside
I try, to escape my life

Would you take my hand
Hold me till the blackness ends
Find a way to feel alive
For now, I’m dead inside

This wasn’t the way
My life was mean to be
Try to pull it together
Failing, weak
This torture and raping
Of mind and of body
Stabbing the breath
From a tired third party
I want your life

Can I, be by your side
So I, can escape my life

Would you take my hand
Hold me till the blackness ends
Find a way to feel alive
But for now, I’m dead inside
Here comes the fear again
Held here captive defense

No way to feel alive
Matched now, I’m dead inside
Dead inside
Dead inside

Solo

I’m dead inside
I’m dead inside
I’m dead inside
I’m dead inside

Track Name: Rage
Rage
(A. Coulstring/C. Brown/R. Johnson

I tried to understand you
Turn your darkness into light
Though your hateful needs dug in me
Every single fight filled night

You don’t care what I’m feeling
Just consumed with your own greed
A mirrors poor reflection
Only show what you believe

Find myself slipping
When we lay down

Feels like when I touch you
Feels like I’m enslaved
Feels like when I hold you
All I feel inside.. is my rage

You said that I had it coming
On that you were so sure
Blind in your reflection
Killing everything that’s pure

And in this final chapter
At the end of our last day
I’ll not be sitting idle
While my time slips away

Find myself slipping
When we lay down

Feels like when I touch you
Feels like I’m enslaved
Feels like when I hold you
All I feel inside.. is my rage

Solo

Find myself slipping
When we lay down

Feels like when I touch you
Feels like I’m enslaved
Feels like when I hold you
All I feel inside.. is my rage
Is my rage
Is my rage

Track Name: Scarred
Scarred
(C. Brown/A. Coulstring/R. Johnson)

Looking ahead through the back of me
Watching mistakes on repeat
Severed these ties to free my mind
Yet shackled to what’s left behind

Do you ever wonder why?
Do you ever feel the scars

I’m scarred from the memories
(My smile deceiving)
This haunts me everyday
(Now changed)
Still scarred by your memory
(And how you deceived me)
Why won’t this fade away

Looking behind with only memories
Etching my mind, you made me weak
From the darkest sky comes light of day
Moment to rise if I could only erase

Do you ever wonder why?
Do you ever feel the scars

I’m scarred from the memories
(My smile deceiving)
This haunts me everyday
(Now changed)
Still scarred by your memory
(And how you deceived me)
Why won’t you fade away

Solo

I’m scarred from the memories
(My smile deceiving)
This haunts me everyday
(Now changed)
Still scarred by your memory
(And how you deceived me)
Why won’t you fade away

Track Name: Till Now
Till Now...
- A. Coulstring/R. Johnson

You'd unleash but you know
You're defined when you blow
But you're choking on this inaction
Need release to let go
To explode or implode
Time to see the world's reaction

Facing the consequence
I've nothing left to lose
This life will be taken and
I'll take yours too

Left me inflicted
With pain when you ripped it
Left you alone
With your delusions
Tricked into safety
But then again lately
I've had no reasons...
Till now

Fooled them all with a smile
Instant Jekyll to Hyde
Bet you never saw this shit coming
Fury fueled payback time
Paranoid wasted mind
Such a genius way to die

Facing the consequence
I've nothing left to lose
This life will be taken and
I'll take yours too

Left me inflicted
With pain when you ripped it
Left you alone
Tricked into safety
But then again lately
Left me inflicted
With pain when you ripped it
Left you alone
With your conclusions
Lured into safety
But then again lately
I've had no reasons...
Till now

Track Name: Hollow Heart
Hollow Heart
- A. Coulstring, C. Brown, R. Johnson

Hate the games you play
And I'm tired of you winning
Believed everything that you said
When you were always lying

Time to forget
The good times we had
I forget

Seems like
You need somebody
And I feel
So torn apart
When you
Need your love then
I'll offer you
My hollow heart

Break away from these chains
That keep me from leaving
Break each link at a time
To show how it’s feeling

Time to forget the good we had

Seems like
You need somebody
And feel
So torn apart
When you
Need my loving
I'll offer you
My hollow heart

You Break
You break
You break
You break

Seems like
You need somebody
And feel
So torn apart
When you
Need my loving
I'll offer you
My hollow heart
