Track Name: Intro
With bloodshot eyes and broken arms
I'll shake the hand of a familiar man
Much like myself but stronger and
More self assured more dignified
His Intention is selflessly giving light to the world
Track Name: Terras Irradient
I'm floating down empty streets
Greeting any shadow that I might meet
Where every sign I pass points to repetition
Where all my secrets were made, mistakes are on parade

I don't know why but I'm always wanting more
And it's not like I've been forced
to look elsewhere and risk everything I

care about and hold dear
despite how hard I try, I still stray and lie
it's my only curse the filth and perverse
I can't turn it down these thoughts are too loud

I wrote a letter addressed to myself
This is how it read
You're not the man that I thought that I'd become
You're not the man that I thought that I'd become
Let them give light to the world
Let them give light to the world
Let them give light to the world
As long as i don't have to see myself like this.
Track Name: Albatross (live)
With more teeth than piano keys
You're spilling lies from the seems
The times I remember, black teeth and white lies
Were the things you taught me
The things you hid behind
The role model I missed
He left the longest list of problems inside me
Of problems inside me

I can't look in the mirror all I see if your face
It's staring back at me with judgement and disgrace
Frown for frown, wrinkle for wrinkle
I cant grow up to be so fickle
Pound for pound, drink for drink
In the bottle you sink sink

Sink into an endless sea
A sea within a glass
Ignoring those around you waiting for time to pass
Ignoring those around you waiting for time to pass

I can't look in the mirror all I see if your face
It's staring back at me with judgement and disgrace
Frown for frown, wrinkle for wrinkle
I cant grow up to be so fickle
Pound for pound, drink for drink
In the bottle you sink sink sink.
Track Name: Sleepless Fights (live)
I'm tired of chasing dreams now I know they'll never come to light
Lay me down on a bed of nails I'll rise to tell the tale of
The night I dreamt my life away thinking of what it could be
But that's a day that'll never come
1,2,3,4
Times I've looked back on my past
Seeing others come and go
Never saying goodbye, never feeling so low
It's changed the way I perceive
Everything that I see, everyone that I meet
I'll take the time to realise
I never made it past that last goodbye
Track Name: Hollow Bones (live)
And there's nothing left
A hatred's grown
Left in place of what I called home
And I always found
To be strong and proud
Concentrate and focus on

Positivity, and breathing properly
the freshest air your lungs have ever had in there
Digging up the thrown you'll find my hollow bones
the ones I spared to show how much I really care

A decision made
A new life plan
Improve the person that I am
Instead of lies
Try cutting ties
Concentrate and focus on

Positivity, and breathing properly
the freshest air your lungs have ever had in there
Digging up the thrown you'll find my hollow bones
the ones I spared to show how much I really care

Don't be put down
By only words
Of jealous minds
And vicious terms x2

I can't wait for my time to come
So I can shine brighter than before
Leave behind those hurt those hateful words
And be the brightest light you ever saw x2
Track Name: Glasgow Coma One (live)
I see you staring across
I see you looking at me
It was a Friday night
It was May 15th
That night meant something
(that night meant nothing)
I pulled you close, with my hands around your throat
For a minute of action
That I now regret
That night meant nothing
(that night meant something)
You tell her this
was just a mistake
Tears streaming down her face
As her heart breaks

You're left to deal with
All those hurt feelings
So stop believing
This was the start of something
