Track Name: Welcome to Hell
all my dreams they are gone fleeting like memories
all those kids that i knew back in school have forgotten me
blood it runs like a river from my eyelids i can't see
the sun setting on the horizon like an incandescent beam

its everything that you prayed for
hopeless like the son of man
every tear that ever hit the ground
just dries into the land
I'm still tired I've been planning
on sleeping in for weeks
but my thoughts are restless in the dark
I'm dying in this heat

but its my heartbeat that i carry in my chest
its the sequence of events that brought me to this consequence
I'm still trying to remember things i worried about when i was young
because not that I'm older my heart can't take the things that I've done

i wrote you three letters that never left my fucking desk
filled them with words and details of the time we spent
pouring over every emotion i think i ever felt
will i ever feel alive will i ever feel something else
Track Name: Nothing For You
growing out my hair these days
so i can be different for you
i'll cut it all off
just like you wanted
just like you wanted me too

growing out my beard these days
so i can hide my face from you
i'll cut it all off
just like you wanted
just like you wanted me too

hiding in my bedroom most nights
so i can stop calling
you know that i miss you
just like you wanted
just like you wanted me too

and i don't want to sleep tonight
because i only dream of you
your warm heart beats softly
just like i wanted
just like i wanted it too


growing out my hair these days
so i can be nothing for you
i'll cut it all off
just like you wanted
just like you wanted me too
Track Name: Black Masses
come hold your breath
and ill hold mine

let go all alone
are you afraid too...

i could hear your straining breath as the liquid filled your lungs
the car careened off the bridge to the dark water below
what was the memory flashing before your eyes
as you made your way towards the light

ghosts they haunt your new home
i'll be one soon

leaving was never an option
for you

and i could hear your crying through paper thin walls
i could feel your heartbeat as it slowly dropped
black masses at the graveyard cold as ice
the soul was missing from your body was true and it was tried
Track Name: Wreck
i sit here, watch you undress
so familiar except now i am such a fucking wreck
i just want to hold you in my arms once again
so familiar but now we are just so distant

when you kiss him is there still somewhat a hint of me?
i remember feeling except now i know there is nothing

maybe ill say a prayer i swear i'll only hope for the best
because you deserve to be happy instead you're just crying in bed
