Track Name: O.T.F
Stage is set.
Apprehension; All time high.
Eyes are glued for the next move.
It's my all or I'm nothing.
Contain
Exclude
Break Down
Overcome
Prove...
These gates will open.
(These gates will open for me)

Nobody can tell You what You pursue is impossible.
Deny all the limits, the boundaries, the hatred.
Resist.
(It's time to defy the odds)

OPEN.
Track Name: Glass House
Push me one more time!
It'll be Your last shove. It'll be Your last breath.

(Fed the fuck up. You never know when to quit do You?)

I'm throwing boulders at Your glass house.

(Take back the words, take back the tears, take back the fears, take back, take back)

Take back the words, take back the tears, take back the fears, take back, take back.

The fact that we share the same air (makes me not wanna breathe.)
The fact that we share the same air (makes me wanna stop breathing)
I'd kill myself to see You suffer.
I'd kill myself to see You killed.

Apologies: NO MORE
Compassion: NO MORE
Reconciliation: NO MORE
You are now: NO MORE!
Track Name: Linger
It kills You inside
It kills You inside

My gears are grinding.
Every word You speak, rips Me to shreds.
How can I think when you do that for Me?

I can't take it.
I can't take You.
Watching Me gain,
Turned it all to shit.
Why cant you just...
Just leave it be.
Just leave Me be.
(Eternally)
If there was no Me,
There'd be no You,
So put You first,
Like You always do.
Why can't You stop?
Why won't You stop?
Please make it stop.
Because I won't stop...

(Carny: Refuse to reconcile do ya'?! That's what friends are for! Ladies, Gentlemen, step right up and see me out-do You once again!)

It killed You inside.
It killed You inside.

Must the animosity linger?...
As I stand here empty-handed, I still have much more than You ever gave Me.
Must the animosity linger?

Is it because You will never be me?
Is it because You will never see?...
See how You won't ever break me.
Is it because You won't EVER see?...
Track Name: This Demise (Intro)
This is the LAST time.
For You.
For Me.
For everything We stand for.
Starting Tonight...

It's time to give me Your all.
So I can see the TRUE You.
Starting Tonight...
Track Name: This Demise
I can't get no sleep on this frightening night.
Different dream. Different fight.
My feet touch the cold, hard floor.
No will anymore...
And I care. I just wish You knew.
Disaster strikes. Where are You?

Here I go...
No one cares cause no one knows.
I despise this demise.
Can't You see this is happening to me?
I despise this demise.

And it's times like these when You can barely breathe.
It's times like these when You can't see.
There's so much more to life.
So much more.
Yet, so much for me.
And I cared. I just wish You knew.
Disaster struck. Where were You?

So, Here I go...
No one cares cause no one knows.
I despise this demise.
Can't You see this is happening to me?
I despise this demise.

Here I go...

There I go...
Track Name: Angel Eyes
Do you feel like a man, motherfucker!?

Are You who You say You are?
Her pride. Her Trust.
It's NO MORE.
She hits the dirt and your satisfied!?

I hope You'll get Yours one day.
Beaten, bruised, and You expect her to stay.
Heal the wounds. Expose the lies.
Have You ever seen an Angel's eyes?

Kick her while shes down.
You gutless hypocrite.
(The broken shall prevail)
THE BROKEN SHALL PREVAIL.
I swear You'll get yours.
And she'll get hers too.
But, she'll get what she deserves...
and its NOT You.

I hope You'll get Yours one day.
Beaten, bruised, and You expect her to stay.
Heal the wounds. Expose the lies.
Have You ever seen an Angel's eyes?

(Now two become one)

Now two are one.
The damage is done.
The madness is over.
Now two are one.
But, what has unfolded?
What will become?

Now two are one.
And it is most certain that no one is safe...
No one is safe from You.
Now two are one and look what he's done.
These eyes of an angel are bloodshot, bloodshot.
Track Name: Until We Are One
Was I just there to pacify?
(A lifetime wasted, it seems)
Losing ourselves before our eyes...
(A lifetime wasted, it seems)
To feel this emptiness.
So hollow.
Can't resist.
It's hurting.
It's burning.
Our world just stopped turning.
Why must this perish?
I'll try.
I will wait until we are one...

So, this we make our stand.
The sands of past slip through our hands.
Regret and distrust intertwine.
It just makes Me recall the time...
You saved me from myself.
Consider this a cry for help.
No one can desert You when You are a recluse.
The urge to move forward.
Its not there. Its not there.
Why must this perish?
I'll try.
I will wait until we are one...

Until then we'll push to stay alive.
Refuse to say a last goodbye.
And though we said that this was pure,
Pursue, indulge, and wait for fate to come...
Until we are one...
