Track Name: What You Wanted
Don't give up,
It's not getting easy but its what you wanted
Don't give up on the things that you swore you loved.

Mangled, diminished thoughts
Aspirations set as lost
What you have is all you'll know
if you choose to let this go.

Don't give up,
It's not getting easy but its what you wanted
Don't give up on the things that you swore you loved.

When the brush has invaded your path
Will you turn around and head for home?
Where the light meets your eyes, blinds your sight
You let your senses dull.

Don't give up,
It's not getting easy but its what you wanted
Don't give up on the things that you swore you loved.

It's not enough, I see at once, it's not enough
I can't believe that I've been hiding behind the storm
My chances seized, it won't be me, I can't believe
I can't believe that I won't find what I'm longing for

Don't give up,
It's not getting easy but its what you wanted
Don't give up on the things that you swore you loved.
Track Name: Shadow Vs. Light
Something in your smile
Or maybe in the way you hide from light
Transforming, shifting shapes
You don't belong here in this place

There is no victim here tonight
There is no need to sacrifice
You've been hiding in the shadows but I'm in the light
Calm your thirst for what is mine

Can't you see your own reflection?
Can't you see what you've become?
You don't belong here with the living
Without your heart you have no soul

There is no victim here tonight
There is no need to sacrifice
You've been hiding in the shadows but I'm in the light
Calm your thirst for what is mine

Don't give in, don't give him just what he wants
He'll pull you in, he'll take you down and leave you for a loss
Can't you see, he's in disguise. When will you realize
that you're the one who's in control?

There is no victim here tonight
There is no need to sacrifice
You've been hiding in the shadows but I'm in the light
Calm your thirst for what is mine
Track Name: Curb Stomp
Wish I had seen this back then
When you called yourself my friend
Hid your devil smile with an angel's grin
I thought I knew you then

You lost yourself in all of this mess
You hurt and you pry but you'll never win
And you sell your soul just to try and fit in
Drop another name, it'll never bring you...

Now I know that you're a deceiver
And I'm not the only one
This pain that you cause,
I swear you do it for fun
Learn to hold your fucking tongue for once

You lost yourself in all of this mess
You hurt and you pry but you'll never win
And you sell your soul just to try and fit in
Drop another name, it'll never bring you...

Everyone knows you're starved for attention
So pop another pill and summon your demons

You lost yourself in all of this mess
You hurt and you pry but you'll never win
And you sell your soul just to try and fit in
Drop another name, it'll never bring you...
Track Name: Geronimo
Follow all your friends into oblivion
Follow all your shameful rebellions

How can you feel no guilt?
How can you feel no shame?
How can you look me in the eye?
Well I guess I'll never know.

Blaming everybody but yourself
Faking, no sincerity until you're someone else

How can you feel no guilt?
How can you feel no shame?
How can you look me in the eye?
Well I guess I'll never know.

How can you live with all this guilt, never looking back on your sins?
Track Name: Prisoners
Wake up to find myself struck by monotony
Obey and do what they say or you'll never succeed

We are all prisoners, but we choose our chains
Unleash your burdens, be free again
We can't be held down at every turn
I won't be your prisoner.

Was a time when I believed that this life was limitless
But the bars clanged, they threw away the keys and now I can't escape

We are all prisoners, but we choose our chains
Unleash your burdens, be free again
We can't be held down at every turn
I won't be your prisoner.
