Track Name: Oblivion
Somewhere deep down I know I deserve this

Half a million thoughts racing through my mind
Try as I might but I just can't find
some peace, any peace, just peace
to get me through the night

Spare me the rose
so I can rest my bones

Behold
true desperation

Look at the rhythm of my chest
it's just a rise, fall
Give me the safest passage
Total lack of recall

As I slip into oblivion

Look at the rhythm of my chest
it's just a rise, fall
Can't be sure if when I'm done
I'll find a way to stand tall
Give me the safest passage
Total lack of recall/free fall/end all
Track Name: Wander
It feels like for every one step forward
I've been taking ten steps back
It feels like for every one step forward
I've been taking ten steps back

My mistakes are holding me down
and so far I can't see the light
at the end of the tunnel
that I know is there

I can't find my way out
of this nightmare
so I'll wander
in anguish

I punish myself over and over
I punish myself again and again

Cause

Every single second that I waste is killing me
I just can't seem to let this go
It's like the weight of the world is crushing me
I didn't think I could get this low

So I

Erase myself, attempt to find peace
Erase myself and when I'm deceased

The end, at last
A way to erase my past
I'm haunted by my memories

And forgiveness is a strong word
underused and elusive
I keep it locked in the back of my mind
and forgiveness is a strong word
I just hope that it comes in time

Every single second that I waste is killing me
I just can't seem to let this go
It's like the weight of the world is crushing me
I didn't think I could get this low

So I

Erase myself, attempt to find peace
Erase myself and when I'm deceased

I'm deceased, I'm deceased
Erase myself and when I'm deceased
I'm deceased, I'm deceased
Erase myself and when I'm deceased
Track Name: Ghost
What do you take me for?
A boy, a man or something in between?
How do you decide my worth
when you are equivalent to me?

Lead me to the pearly gates, let me look inside
I can see you in, the back of my mind
It disgusts me, that you have
all of the means to
make it right

So what's the point of what I do
when it all ends the same?
A six foot hole, a wooden box
a stone with my name
carved in clear, a craftsman's touch
just a message beneath
telling everyone
another fucking lie
through my teeth

Lead me to the pearly gates, let me look inside
I can see you in, the back of my mind
It disgusts me, that you have
all of the means to
make it right, but just choose
to let the weak get
bullied by the rich and powerful
again, and again, and again
and it disgusts me, that you have
all of the means to
make it right

“Oh what a shame, he was so great.”
Let the weeping commence
and I'll be there, but just to listen
all the while I condense

Cause I'd rather be a ghost
than lie with a cross above my head

I am the seed that you plant with every corpse
I exist just to prove you wrong
I am the seed that you plant with every corpse
I exist just to prove you wrong

Well my blood is pure, and I don't need your wine
and you can call him a savior, but you're fucking blind
live your life by a book, bigotry and greed
if money is power, how much more do they need?
Well my blood is pure, and I don't need your wine
and you can call him a savior, but you're fucking blind

(Maybe it's because I didn't pay my way in
making each and every Sunday just a day full of sin
and you stand there at the altar just begging for change
but I've become the bad guy cause I'm begging for change
Maybe it's because I didn't pay my way in

And if cleanliness
is next to godliness
then I've got
Jesus beat

And I'd rather be a ghost
than lie with a cross above my head

Lead me to the pearly gates, let me look inside
I can see you in, the back of my mind
It disgusts me, that you have
all of the means to
make it right

again, and again, and again
and it disgusts me, that you have
all of the means to
make it right

Cause I'd rather be a ghost
than lie with a cross above my head
Cause I'd rather be a ghost
and leave that book unread
Track Name: Triumph/Tragedy
Take one step back for me, it seems there's not much time
Everyone has a story, but first I'll tell you mine
We've all had dreams like this, falling towards the Earth
You must have no idea, what you're really worth
I used to be like you, so lost and all alone
but I know someone's waiting, worried sick at home

I know what it's like to go through life with such a heavy heart
no one there to help you through and pick up all the broken parts
Keep it simple take it slow but sever all the toxic ties
You can do a whole lot better than the people living lies
Now find the thing you hold most dear
Just in case I'll make it clear
Keep it close and keep it safe
You are not a waste of space

I am not a saint, and I don't claim to be
I am just a man, have some faith in me
I don't have much at all, but I swear I'll try
everything in my power, I won't let you die

Triumph over tragedy
Soon you'll see
Triumph over tragedy
Alive's not bad to be

I see what you're thinking, like give up this life is too damn hard
I took all of my dark and I turned it into fucking art
No music might not be your one and only, greatest talent
but rest assured that I'd be dead and gone if I had been without it

Triumph over tragedy
Soon you'll see
Triumph over tragedy
Alive's not bad to be
Triumph over tragedy
Take my hand
Triumph over tragedy
Delay the end
Track Name: Overture
And suddenly, what seemed so real
simply fades from memory
A necessary step in
embracing reality

That first breath
the way it fills, my lungs
It serves to remind me
remind me I'm alive

How cruel, to take me from my home
and lead me back here
to what I can only call
my personal hell

(Iridescent, the light shines
my beacon, the reason
that I am not a ghost, any longer
I'm alive, I'm alive)

Do you see, what it's like to be
stuck like a prisoner trapped in their body?
It's okay, just the day-to-day
misery, mockery, ill-guided fate
Destiny, so specifically
picked me to scar up the family tree
and I must, for a lack of trust
do it before I'm reduced to dust

I only want
something to call my own
the kiss, of success
my, legacy

(But I digress)

Somewhere deep down, I know I deserve this
Every single second that I waste is killing me, I just can't seem to let this go
Cause I'd rather be a ghost, than lie with a cross above my head
I am not a saint, and I don't claim to be

I'm alive
