Track Name: The Dread
Here comes the dread, the sudden apprehension
I don’t know where it comes from and I’m not sure how to stress this
I’m looking for the truth, I search in desperation
I’ve watched my whole damn life just for a spark of inspiration

Why is it so hard to start a new tradition?
We’re watching generations die of life in contradiction
“Just do what I say, don’t do what I do”
It’s hard to watch them all grow old and still die in their youth

I’m not giving in, I’m not accepting this is the end
I’m going to burn out trying to save myself
And I just want you to know I understand I am alone
And if I’ve learned from what you’ve said, it’s that I am already dead

I’m tired of always fighting but I know that it can’t wait
I’m strong enough to cope with it but what a goddamn waste
I never thought my energy would burn on all this dirt
And now my time is claimed, claimed but never earned

I’m not giving in, I’m not accepting this is the end
I’m going to burn out trying to save myself
And I just want you to know I understand I am alone
And if I’ve learned from what you’ve said, it’s that I am already dead

It’s going to catch up and it’s going to get bad
We’re right at the point where there’s no turning back
And you better not scream that you’re only a victim
The world is to blame and it’s only tradition
We’re not giving up, we’re not mindless machines
Repeating the lines that we see on our screens
This life we’ve been given is always the hardest
We’re meant to adventure, explore, and be artists

I’m not giving in, I’m not accepting this is the end
I’m going to burn out trying to save myself
And I just want you to know I understand I am alone
And if I’ve learned from what you’ve said, it’s that I am already dead
Track Name: Dead, Tired, Broken
I have this obsession, romantic and deep
Of a hero who dies at the hands of the villain
Who used to have courage, who used to believe
But struggles to find the strength to get through this

I hate indiscretion, I hate that I’m weak
I hate that our greed got us too deep into this

We’re dead, we’re tired, we’re broken
We’re stuck in debt and we’re choking
We’re drowning in all of your lies
And all of us are trying
To live without denying
The part of us that’s still alive

We’re dead, we’re tired, we’re broken
We’re stuck in debt and we’re choking
We’re drowning in all of your lies
And all of us are trying
To live without denying
The part of us that’s still alive
Track Name: The End Of The World
It’s better to die brave than live a coward
Nobler to chase a dream and die penniless in the streets

Live bold and die old; motto of heroes
And now words and phrases are your ghosts
The world at the tip, the tip of my fingers
And slowly I fear, the end it draws near, and failure still lingers

And yet I sleep, a deep slumber I sleep
I see what I see, it all comes to be, because I sleep

And yet I sleep, a deep slumber I sleep
I see what I see, it all comes to be, because I sleep

At the end of the world our words can still save us
As long as we’re here, and breathe, and stand resolute in the streets
Track Name: Deepest Fears
Try goddamn it cause you’re losing your ground
Your thunderous beginning has turned into the sound
Of the one thing you never wanted to be
But you can’t break now you’re not meant to give up
The only thing they’ll see is that you’re not good enough
But one day you’re going to make them see

That you’ve never been afraid, always been alone
That you’re smarter than they think, better than they know
And the only thing you need is a chance and a chance and a chance
But all you ever hear is another no
And it’s harder every day just to let it go
And you’re running out of time to advance and advance and advance

I’ve been walking your way but I’m so tired
And I’m looking for a way out
But it’s always one more, and it’s always one last time
And it’s finally going to catch me

I’ve been running, I’ve been hiding, I’ve been waiting for the call
I’ve been watching every move and I’ve been ready all along
You better brace for impact, you better dig in while your strong
You better take that last breath, you’re going to want it when it’s gone

My deepest fear is that I’ll be a sad and angry man, bitter in the end
That I’m fighting all alone and I’m never meant to know if it’s worth it in the end

Don’t ever give up, we can’t let them win
Don’t ever give in to the fear they live in
We’re smarter, we’re stronger, we’re better

My deepest fear is that I’ll be a sad and angry man, bitter in the end
That I’m fighting all alone and I’m never meant to know if it’s worth it in the end
Track Name: The Burden
My life has been changing, I knew it wouldn’t last
My mistakes came back to haunt me, and to repeat my shitty past
And I can feel these walls are closing, they’re closing

Last night I had a dream, the world went down in flames
I was chased by superstition, I was cut by everything
And now I can’t stop bleeding

Life is getting lonely, but I know I’m not alone
I know I’m not alone
I just can’t help but think that this life is not my own
This life is not my own

Haunted by ghosts that should long have since passed
My life is consumed by this time that won’t last
And still I can’t stop bleeding

One day this world will beat you until you’re on the ground and broken
And the dirt that moves with stuttered breath will be a promise kept unspoken

That you have to get up, that you can’t let it break you
This is your burden and this is your life
This is your time now and this is your fight
Just move on

Life is getting lonely, but I know I’m not alone
I know I’m not alone
I just can’t help but think that this life is not my own
This life is not my own

Haunted by ghosts that should long have since passed
My life is consumed by this time that won’t last
And still I can’t stop bleeding
Track Name: Never Say Die
I have no trouble finding the best in someone else
But can only seem to focus on the worst within myself
And I don’t know where that comes from, and I don’t know how to change
I’m afraid I’ll spend my whole life, trying to figure out a way

I told myself that I would try until the end
I made myself a promise, I’ll die before I’m broken

Life is a funny thing when death seems all the better
When it feels like it's the end and it’s hard just to remember
When the wind felt just like love, and the world moved with the passion
That you had when you were young

I told myself that I would try until the end
I made myself a promise, I’ll die before I’m broken
I told myself that I would try until the end
I made myself a promise, I’ll die before I’m broken
I'll die before I'm broken
I'll die before I'm broken
I'll die before I'm...
