I AM LORD OF EVERYTHING THAT I CREATED FIT TO RULE THE DEMONS THAT HAUNTED ME I’VE BEEN MOCKED BY MY OWN CREATIONS STRIPPED TO BONE IN THE FIRES THAT I BREATHED BECAUSE I AM TRULY MY OWN WORST ENEMY SELF-HATING SELF-INDULGING CRITICISING ENDLESSLY AND I CAN’T FIND MY WAY PAST MY OWN TWO FEET WE ARE NOT THE IMAGE THAT WE CLING TO WE ARE NOT THE PRODUCTS DESIRED WE ARE NOT THE FUTURE THAT YOU DREAMT OF WE ARE NOT WE ARE NOT ROADS LESS TRAVELLED ARE A HOLLOW DREAM LOADS CARRIED ON THE BACKS OF BROKEN THEMES THE FEARS I’VE DRIVEN THESE ARE THE FEARS I’VE GIVEN

WE ARE THE MAKERS OF OUR OWN FORTUNES WE ARE THE BEARERS OF OUR OWN MISTAKES IT’S DAYS LIKE THIS I JUST WISH I DIDN'T KNOW THE STORIES THAT I COULDN'T SHARE AND SECRETS THAT I BURIED DEEP AND ALL IT’S LEFT ME AFRAID TO BE SEEN AND ALL IT’S LEFT ME AFRAID TO BE ME I'VE SEEN THIS LOOK BEFORE EYES DRAINED FROM BLOOD AND IT’S IN THE DARKEST HOUR WHEN THE FLAME THAT BURNS INSIDE STARTS TO FLICKER THAT WE NEED TO CARRY HOPE I KNOW I KNOW IT ALL TOO WELL I'VE SEEN THE WAY YOU HURT I'VE FELT IT JUST THE SAME AND I COULDN'T STOP IT IF I TRIED AND I COULDN'T STOP IT EVEN IF I WANTED TO IT’S JUST A BURDEN WE ALL SUFFER THROUGH IT’S JUST A BURDEN WE WERE MEANT TO SHARE DAYS ARE CLOSING TIME IS FADING ARE YOU STILL HOLDING ON?

GROWING UP ALL ALONE EVERYDAY WAS SPENT IN SOLITUDE HIDDEN AWAY IN THE DEEPEST RECESS OF YOUR MIND YOU GREW UP SO ESTRANGED SO FAR FROM THE CLOSEST EVERY EFFORT TO BRIDGE THE GAP JUST FAILED TO PASS SO CAN YOU SEE HOW IT FAIRED WHEN YOU LAID IT OUT IN FRONT? THE WHISPERING AND THE BITING CASTED FROM THE SHADOW DEEP AND IN YOUR MIND YOU BURIED THE WORLD IN DARKNESS LOSING STRENGTH AND LOSING FAITH THE WORLD SURROUNDING YOU CAME CRASHING DOWN AND SO WHAT HAS REALLY CHANGED? TEN YEARS ON AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? STILL FINDING PEACE IN THE DISTANCE STILL JUST A MEMORY THAT YOU LIVE EVERYDAY SOMEHOW SO FAMILIAR LIKELY CLOSE TO HOME BECAUSE HE IS ME HE IS YOU HE IS EVERYONE WE KNEW AND WE’VE ALL FELT IT IN TIME LIKE WE’VE BEEN LEFT ALONE LIKE NO ONE IS THE SAME OR SHARES THE PAIN WE HAVE I CAN’T KEEP LIVING IN FEAR I CAN’T KEEP LIVING IN FEAR I WANT TO BREAK FREE I WANT TO FLY FREE LIKE NOTHING’S KEPT ME HERE
Track Name: Lies From the Past
IT’S FUNNY HOW TIME JUST SEEMS TO SLIP ON THROUGH THE CRACKS IN LIFE AND THE MEMORIES WE HOLD ONTO AND ONE BY ONE WHERE ONCE THEY SAT IN A PLACE THAT WAS FILLED WITH LIFE THEY SEEMED TO LINGER PEACEFULLY BUT GROWING DAYS SEEM TO STEAL THEM BACK AND FROM TIME TO TIME ONE JUST SEEMS TO SURFACE FROM NOWHERE NOT JUST A MEMORY BUT IT BRINGS THE FEELINGS THAT ONCE BELONGED THE GOOD WITH THE GOOD AND THE BAD SO OFTEN TOO IT SEEMS TO BE WHAT KEEPS ME GROUNDED THE THING THAT STEERS ME TOO MANY TIMES HAVE I PASSED THIS OFF AS JUST A FLEETING THOUGHT BUT AT WHAT POINT DO WE ACCEPT THIS AS A SIGN AS GUIDANCE THAT WE LACK SOMETHING HERE AND NOW? AND I’VE USED THIS ALL TO MY BEST AND I’VE KEPT THE THINGS THAT MEANT MOST CLOSE AT HAND IN NEW BEGINNINGS I’VE FOUND SO MUCH MORE THAN I THOUGHT DESERVING OF THAN I THOUGHT DESERVED
