Track Name: The Devil's Grip
"Devil's Grip"

Who am I
I hate when I ask myself
I feel like I should be alright, but I'm not
Gut wrenching nervousness overwhelms
What have I become?
This man in the glass his days are done, as you can see and tell I hate when I ask myself,
Do I live and stand for something?
I had a good heart once

I had a good heart once

Surrounded by a sea of faces
but cut off from human affection
Will I live this life alone
forever searching for a home?
Always denying what I needed,
It's never too late until your bleeding.
I should feel right, but I swear I don't

Well I must start again, this is not who I am
Take a deep breath and look within it's in the past
I can't change what's done yesterday's dead and gone
But I've got today and I will make the best of it

I MUST START AGAIN

Who am I?
Now that my armors been worn through
A dull blade and I'm losing sight, but Im not giving in to the lies that consume
These lies insult me
This man in the glass his days are done as you can see and tell I hate when I ask myself,
do I live and stand for something?
I had a good heart once

So much to do, where do I even start
I've become a soulless husk
A mindless drone from dawn to dusk,
I've lost sight of it all
So much to do, where do I even start
Please atone me for my crime
So filled with malice and hate
I'm stuck in this calloused state

Well who am I now that my life has been worn through
A dull blade and I'm losing sight but I'm not giving in to the lies

Well I must start again, this is not who I am
Take a deep breath and look within it's in the past
I can't change what's done yesterday's dead and gone
But I've got today and I will make the best of it

Who am I, now that my armors been worn through?
A dull blade and I'm losing sight but I'm not giving into the lies
Track Name: Home Insecurity
"Home insecurity"

We exist
We die
Our moment in time
A glimpse of eternity
The brevity of life
Something overlooked
Something ignored
Something spent fulfilling hollow goals
Wealth, Lust, Addictions
The American dream
Misguided ideas of success
Few truly find it Yet
In the blink of an eye
our lives will end
And like anything in this world
We fade away

Leaving behind only the ideas and legacies
The embodiment of our lives
Who we once were

You could live for so much more
Don't be content with emptiness
Tell me what you live for

I refuse to fade
To sell my life away for social gain
To let this world dictate my success
Becoming something so much more
we are specks in the eyes
Becoming something so much more we are specks in the eyes of humanity
An idea can defy the test of time
interlacing itself
An idea can defy the test of time interlacing itself into the fibers of history

So go
Make your own existence
Your own success
And become an idea worth living and dying for
Track Name: The Better Man
"The Better Man"
Blinding darkness
Frozen to the bone
I see the darkness taking what was once my own life
It seems that she's taking me underneath these vicious waves

She's taking me underneath these waves
Dragging me to the depths of the sea
There's no hope in the open water
with a vessel crippled from front to back

We sail these violent seas
but can we make it to the shore

We sail these violent seas
but can this ship withstand the waves
We sail these violent seas
through the waves
We search the skyline to find the light we're desperate for
We will make it
We will make it to the shore

Oh God, have we not seen these shipwrecks before?
Like anchors, dragging me away
Pulling me beneath the sea

Pulling me under, pulling me faster, pulling us deep
We are sinking

But in the dark, a glimmer of hope
Man your Stations, man your stations

This ship is sinking
(Pulling me under)
This ship will take me with it
(Pulling me faster)
This ship is sinking
(Pulling me under)
If I choose to give up on it
(Pulling me deeper)

We've been fighting this battle this entire time with wounded hearts and blinded eyes
This ship can't withstand another restless night
Sailing in the open waters with a fractured compass has left me feeling lifeless
I've questioned why I fight this
But I have hope, because I know your lighthouse is on the shore
so for the first time in a long time, I'm not afraid anymore

Hoisting up my hope
I sail through the sea
You are the light
This vessel will not sink!

The light is shining
Cutting through the darkness
We will make it
We will bring this vessel home
Track Name: Dr. Killinger
"Dr. Killinger"

I believe in a greater truth about me and you

I believe in a greater truth
about both me and you
I believe in a greater truth
about me and you
I'm sick of this world telling me what to do
I'll pitch a fit, rip through the crowd
I'll be the one to touch you
I'm sick of this world telling me what to do
I'll pitch a fit, rip through the crowd
I'll be the one to break through
I won't allow this hate to takeover my life
I will embrace this peace and Love because in my heart I know that it's right

My Identity is written in the stars

People say I'm crazy but they all live the same
Psychopaths are broken people who have all played the game
It's like oh well what can you expect
don't you know we're filthy sinners might as well embrace it
It's all I hear day after day
We can't change it, nothing matters, we were all born this way
Listen, hear this message that they all confess if you ask me it will only leave you feeling heartless.

I believe there's something greater than this world can comprehend
It's expressed through a loving mother
laying your life down for a friend
Our lives reflect the truth we need to learn to see it
It's not just something to believe in it comes from deep within
You are not your mistakes you are exactly what He says

I won't allow this hate to takeover my life
I will embrace this peace and Love because in my heart I know that it's right
I will embrace His peace and Love because in my heart I know that it's right

So open your ears so the veil removes from your eyes
Your story's written with the stars in the sky
Track Name: Return To Malice
"Return To Malice"

Take your hands off of me
Have you forgotten
I will be ruthless

Have you forgotten you are under my feet
I won't let you run me anymore
Your ways are pain and deceit
My demise
All that was before I had my faith
Take your hands off of me
I will not put up with this anymore
I will be ruthless with my words
In my pursuit
Walk away
I'll be ruthless
I can't change what have I done
All I know is I want out of here

The feeling going head to head and here we go
I'm coming back and I won't back down this time because your intimidations fading away
Try not to look in the mirror because I didn't recognize myself, myself

It's over, and I'm coming back and I won't back down this time no I won't
I'm coming back and I won't back down
I'm stronger so fear me now
I won't back down
I'm stronger now and I won't back down

At times Life gives us more than we can bear
as we become submerged gasping for air
We can give up and drift away in fear
or we can stand our ground and be free

Bow down
Make your face kiss the floor
Fear your reign is no more
Empowered by the one
whose kingdom answers to no one
Make your face kiss the floor
Fear your reign is no more
Empowered by the one
Make your face kiss the floor
Kiss the floor

Have you forgotten you are under my feet?
I won't let you run me anymore
Track Name: The Revenge Society
"The Revenge Society"

Give me courage to change my actions
To reflect what's right
To reflect
To disown this anger that fills my heart
Will take this time to make things right
To alter the course
and change the effects
of a past engulfed by selfish gain
and hollow words
I have to believe that my actions will determine who I am
Not just the words that come from my mouth
So give me courage to do what needs to be done
To become the man that I need to be
Show me what it means to truly be free
and shatter these chains that take a hold of me
On a one way road surrounded by so much pain
I have nowhere to go from here but forward
This is the day where I act
Where I take hold of a life I took for granted
And start living by the morals that embody
love, forgiveness, and patience
So give me the courage to do what needs to be done

On a one way road surrounded by disaster
I have nowhere to go from here but forward

I will stand with the strength of a fortress behind me
And If it's something I can believe
Then this is something I can achieve
This is something that I believe
I will believe
Track Name: Council of Thirteen
"Council Of Thirteen"

Day after day I've noticed things have gone wrong
Could people's opinions hurt me after all
I've started agreeing with these words now they're creeping in my head

What a mistake I am, what a screw up
I've been led astray and I must stand up
for what I know to be right because I'm just too far gone
These thoughts of mine, will this cycle ever end
where I'm always doing what I hate
You call yourself a man

Well I've got to wake up before it's too late I've been led astray

Well these words they weren't affecting me
until they became the words that I said

This touch is so seductive
It's sweeping me away
Why does what I know will destroy me seem to have the sweetest taste
This touch is so seductive
Why does it seem to have the sweetest taste

Who will wake me up from this hell

Before it's too late, I've got to wake up
I've been led astray and I must shake off
this numbness that I've accepted for so long
This is not what I wanted, this is not my song
I will live the best I can just show me your ways
These imaginations have seen their last days.

Well I've got to wake up before it's too late, I've been let astray
I've got to wake up

Well these words, they weren't affecting me
until they became the words that I said
All it took was agreeing with these words
now they're creeping in my head
I've got to wake up
