Track Name: Uprooted
Roses stay screaming
When ripped from their roots
I, I feel this clamping down
My lungs aren’t breathing

I’m tired of playing this game
These eyes are shut, and my hands are numb

Take me out back with a loaded gun
I’m just a sick dog
Waiting to see the sun
When guilt, (that gift)
That gift that keeps on giving
Gives way to all the pain, inside my chest

You say, oh you say
That you’d save me
But certain serpants surface
Well I say, I say
The fastest way to my heart
Is straight through my chest

Illusions leading me to my death
It’s hard to break away, (When you’ve become insane)
I seem to see a light but it fades
So, dig me out of this grave

Am I the devil yet?

(Fight), the pain that thrives in my (chest)
My lungs they bleed, help me (rest)
Too scared to say, I’m not (great)
Too scared to say
I don’t wanna
I don’t wanna
I don’t wanna
I don’t wanna
I don’t wanna be a disgrace
Track Name: Spectacle
The stars don't judge me like the sun does
So we make plans in the dark 
Just a lost soul circling his heart

Serves me right to suffer, Serves me right to be fucked.
It’s not who I was, It’s just the way that I acted
It’s not who I am, it’s just the way that I’m acting
How have I survived?

When chemicals, they fuel the fire just right
(They fuel the fire just right) 
And those shadows, they whisper in your ear
It’s clear I long for this
(It's clear that I long for this)

I dwell on it when the sun shines
What will I find?

I am sick and worried of all the thoughts
that live and bleed inside my head
I am sick and worried of all the thoughts
that live and bleed inside my head

I live with this in the morning
I live with this in the morning
When the sun shines through the blinds

When chemicals, they fuel the fire just right
(They fuel the fire just right)

I took my life away, and watched it waste away
I took my life away, and watched it waste away

I can't escape my own brain, will I fade?
Sometimes I just can't wait, I can't wait

Even snakes have to watch for other snakes,
I should know, I should know x2

Dead man, dead man’s a walking, a walking in (dead man) 
Dead man
Dead man, dead man, dead man's walking in
(I said)
Dead man, dead man’s a walking, a walking in (I said)
Dead man, dead man’s a walking, a walking in
Fuck
Sometimes I just can't wait, for that sun to go down
Sometimes I just can't wait
Dead man, dead man
Track Name: Nevermore
If only just for a moment
Make believe that our souls are golden
My tongue is bleeding and I just can’t hold
My tongue is bleeding and I just can’t…

Play to, that ocean’s breeze
Why are you running away?
The sound of, that old man’s song
Why are we running away?

Take a bow, Take a bow
We are the foolish ones
Let’s oversaturate ourselves
And watch as our pictures burn

Take a bow, Take a bow
We are the foolish ones
Have I lost all my faith
I am just so last on where to start

Play to, this ocean’s breeze
Why are you running away?
The sound of, that old man’s song
Why are we running away?

Earth will drown, death will speak.
Oh have I bled for my own?
The sun, the sun has lost it’s pity
Ran drops have withered the soil

Earth will drown, death will speak.
Black clouds hang over my home
That sound, oh that sound
Give me faith, or fucking take me away, now
Give me faith me faith, or fucking take me away, now
Give me fatih in humanity

Take me, (take me) take me away, or give me faith in humanity
Take me, (take me) take me away, or give me faith in humanity.

Play to, this ocean’s breeze
Why are you running away?
The sound of, that old man’s song
Why are we running away?

take me away, take me away, take me away, or give me faith
take me away, take me away, take me away, or give me faith, give me faith.
Track Name: 1969
Go ahead, sell your little fiction
They’ll all know soon enough
You’ve been snapping promises like bones.

The transparency is apparent
And if you can’t see that, you must be see-through too

Hey kid, where you going with that gun in your hand?
I hope that your mistakes
Drag you to hell and back again

I caught your, caught your noise
From so far, from so far away
I hope you rot
I caught your, caught your noise
I hope you, hope you rot
Just like me

Taper off, ‘cause I ain’t buying
With your back against the wall
You gonna fight or ya flying?
(You gonna fight or ya flying?)

You tried to play me
I tried to feel my face
Just take a look at us now
Just look at us now

Back off of me
All I wanted was some fucking room to breathe
The thought of this
I have to keep out from under my skin

I caught your, caught your noise
From so far, from so far away
I hope you rot
I caught your, caught your noise
I hope you, hope you rot
Just like me

Black sheep, I’m won’t shepherd you and your black sheep
Black sheep, I’m won’t shepherd you and your black sheep
Black sheep, I’m won’t shepherd you and your black sheep

‘Cause god knows it can all turn to blood
In the blink of an eye
‘Cause god knows it can all turn to blood
In the blink of an eye
I’ve buried myself before
but I’ve made it out alive
Buried myself before
But I’ve made it out alive
Made it out alive
Made it out alive
And I’ll be damned if I get buried in the dirt again

Last call, I’ve heard it all
You plead the fifth for your life
But you’re too far gone
Track Name: Endwell
You tried to make a grave
In the silence of my brain
You turned away your cheek
And hushed away, all my fucking pain

The sun won’t black out my eyes
Bring me hope, and progression
I quit this strife
This will not stand for my fate
All the love that I’ve lost
Will reciprocate

I am not, I am not
The lies you say, the lies you’ve made
This is my, this is my
Life I lead, without your flame

It’s funny how things change
Or was I blind?
From what’s right in front my face
The skies were dark and gray
So I broke away
From all that you enslaved
I can’t run, oh I can’t run
from your cascading seduction
But that’s okay, please don’t worry babe.
‘Cause now we can’t be saved

The sun won’t black out my eyes
Bring me hope, and progression
I quit this strife
This will not stand for my fate
All the love that I’ve lost
Will reciprocate

I am not, I am not
The lies you say, the lies you’ve made
This is my, this is my
life I lead, without your flame

Live will not define us
Death will not, control us
Live will not define us
Death will not, control us

Live will not define us
Death will not, control us
