Track Name: Fathers
Since you left, things haven't been the same
All I have is this picture of your face
The one I used to see out in the crowd
And I could tell by the look in your eyes
I knew you were proud

Every moment we spent together
Lumps up inside my throat
I'll have your memory forever
And I'll never let it go

I'll have your memory forever
And I won't ever let it go
One day I'll be with you forever
And I will never let you go

I will be left with you in my mind
Trying to find what you left behind
Track Name: Wrong
I swear I know myself
Better than I sing about in my songs
But I was wrong
I swear I’m not afraid
To try and fail
But I was wrong

My whole life has been a vicious cycle
Of trying to convince myself I’m right
I will not run, I cannot run
From the failures that tell me otherwise

All I am and all I’ve done will go away in the end
Empty words and empty thoughts
Have become my only friends

Everything that I’ve ever done
Means nothing when I am gone
Why should I care? While I’m still here
With this pressure building up inside my lungs

When I die I hope that my life wasn’t just a trend
An empty tomb, an empty grave
Has become my greatest friend

I swear I know myself
Better than I sing about in my songs
But I was wrong
(I was wrong all along)
I swear I’m not afraid
To try and fail
But I was wrong
(I was wrong all along)
Track Name: Ghost
I’ve always known you’re there
But I just feel alone
I’ve never felt so cold
I’ve never been alone

This ghost haunts me below
While the weight of all my bones
Just grows
And time, it moves so slow
I’ve become what I know

I’m a stranger to myself
I never see myself getting out
Of this mess I’ve made
I’m never coming home
I’ve never felt at home
Track Name: Colorblind
I’ve lost my will to kill
The things that are holding me back
Now I just sit still
And don’t even try to fight back

Will I be left with the world?
Or will I be dead to myself?
Trapped inside of these four walls I have built
And I am to blame
They’re closing in on me
I am to blame

I don’t know if my initial intentions were pure
But I am sure that I never meant
For these colors to fade and forget my own name
While I push through the pain

I am afraid that I will never change
I am afraid that I can’t escape
I need you to take my place
Track Name: How Lonely Sits the City
I tried so hard to discover
The meaning behind my fragile life
Spent all my days and countless nights
Searching for things to bring me peace
My restless thoughts and shaking hands
Clinging to lies with a relentless grip
Been on my own since I was a young kid
Forced to press on despite all of this

I told myself there was no God
And I believed that they were wrong
I was so jaded, so filled with hatred
That I could not see the walls that I put up
I found the door, but had no key
I lost myself, I had nothing
I tried so hard to fill the void
But came up short, which brought me here

He said the older I get the harder that it is
For me to wrap my mind around a God that exists
I tried to win the race, was met with ignorance
That led me down this road marked by repentance
It’s all so clear now
(It’s all so clear)

I don’t care what you’ve done
I don’t care where you’ve been
I was there with you then
And I won’t leave you now
Track Name: Grown Tired
I believed you, I still believe you
Sometimes I don’t know what I’m doing here
I believed you, I still believe you
Sometimes it feels like I’m wasting my years

I believed you, I still believe you

Lower your weapons, I’ve got grace in my lungs
Though night has fallen I will not reap any consequences
I toss and turn from all these songs that I’ve sung
My eyes are growing heavy, help me make it to tomorrow

My eyes are now wide open
To the things that I can’t see
My ears are listening closely
To the words You spoke to me
My voice, it cries out loudly
And I can hardly breathe
My legs are growing tired
And my feet are failing me
