Track Name: Dahlia
Dahlia

Fixing all the damage we've all caused
Giving all you've got to give
Trying to find a way to give back to you
You watched me grow up
I watched you grow old
And I hate to see you withering away

Dahlia, you're wilting away
Leaving only traces and marks you've made
You dug your roots into the hearts of others
You dug your roots and left your marks in our hearts
You left a mark in our hearts

With all the care in the world
Through all the hardships of life
All alone you raised a garden full of love
You're withering away to nothing
Yet you're everything
You gave us everything

Life takes so many things from you
It bleeds you dry until you're left with nothing
Live to the fullest until the detriment of your physical being and your memories will surpass your time
You'll be remembered

You'll be remembered for years to come
The roots you dug into our hearts have grown into beautiful flowers
You'll be remembered

With all the care in the world
Through all the hardships of life
All alone you raised a garden full of love
You're withering away to nothing
Yet you're everything
You gave us everything

Everything fades
And everything wilts away
The love that you gave us your marks still remain
The family you've raised lives on with your memory

You'll be remembered for years to come
You'll be remembered
You'll be remembered for years to come
You'll be remembered
Track Name: Suffocate
I'm backed into a corner
And angst is at the other end
I seek a place to finally lay to rest
Mend and forget

What's it like to be happy
Cause that's all I want to be
What's it like to not forcefully make it through the week?

I'm stuck inside a reoccurring nightmare
Wake me up
Please wake me up

I'm in a room full of people and everyone has made mistakes
But no one should be made of mistakes
and that's all I've grown to be
My mistakes have made me

I can't seem to figure out what's wrong with me but I've found a sense of comfort in seclusion
My thoughts always get the best of me
I've been to busy treading in the past
Reliving all of my mistakes
Running down an endless path

I feel as if the world is out to get me, suffocate me

I fucking hate what I've become
Plagued by my past but I will never succumb
To insecurities
My insecurities

If sanity means feeling everything then I'd rather not feel at all

I'm in a room full of people and everyone has made mistakes
But no one should be made of mistakes
and that's all I've grown to be
My mistakes have made me
Track Name: Fade
After all this time you'd think that maybe I'd end up fine
Two years has been and the truth is you never actually left my mind
Memories of us replay over and over again inside my head

Some say time heals a wound but the memories stay
instead I fade away I'm drifting into a void
Something I've never felt before
Tears shed countless thoughts of you and I lead to sleepless nights and when I finally lay my heavy mind

Your face haunts my dreams
A war inside my mind
A world where our love is still relevant
A romance like no other
Something so elegant

I often ask myself if it was me but I already know it wasn't
I know it wasn't
I cherish the times we spent
I remember the smile I wore
It burns like hell to know
I wasn't what you were searching for

Where have you gone?
You were everything I ever wanted
Everything I needed
You kept me sane
I'm not the same

You're in my thoughts
Inside my brain your voice drives me insane
You're forever gone
Forever gone but never forgotten
Track Name: Disdain
Father
Father to none
Everything you've said and done

Left and abandoned
Flesh and blood
You turned your back on your own son

Another hopeless man
Destroyed by addiction
Another broken boy
Deprived of joy

A burden cast aside
What am I?
What am I in your eyes?

Father, when you wanted in
What made you think it would be that simple?

I've seen it all
I know the truth
A lack of love
Like father like son

When I turned my back on you
I didn't feel a thing
Making the same mistakes forgetting the ones you ought to love

When you're dead and gone
Will you regret everything that you threw away

I bruised my knees praying for my fathers return

Left behind
You imbecile
You worthless fool
Looks like addictions got the best of you
No ones around
You're all alone now
I feel no sympathy
In the guilt
I hope you fucking drown
Flesh and blood

Like father like son
Track Name: Masquerade
Time and time again
I'm left abandoned shattered alone
I've lost all hope
I faked a smile
I faked my courage

I faked a sense of hope
Look at me for who I really am
Not for what you thought I'd be
I've grown too good at masking all my flaws
I never met your expectations and I never will

Look at me for who I really am

One by one I watched them leave
I watched them turn their backs on me

I was never worth it
I was never worth their fucking time
Leave me behind
Discard me like the waste I am

Leave me behind

I faked a sense of hope
Look at me for who I really am
Not for what you thought I'd be
I've grown too good at masking all my flaws
I never met your expectations and I never will
Look at me for who I really am

For years I've had everything I love slowly disappear
At times it gets the best of me
Why must everything I hold dearly leave me as if it were nothing?

I'm left to face the world alone
Everyone I've ever loved has failed me
I'm left to face the world alone
The ones who claimed to love me have faded away, like the hope that's left inside of me
I watched the faces disappear while I stay behind
I'd rather face this in my own
I'm broken but this is who I am
This is who I'll always be

This is who I'll always be
