Track Name: No Hope, No Fear
Reject hope, reject fear
Keep pushing, remember what's real
No God, just love
No God, just love

Reject the burning sun
Resist the turning moons
Reject the liars who
Sell you fate and superstitions
Words creep out of their mouths like locusts
Drown them out with all the noise in infinity
And keep writhing, keep eating your tail
No hope, no fear
No hope, no fear

Taste your failures, embrace the pain
Inhale disappointment, exhale rage
Exhale rage
Track Name: Exhale Rage
I've grown so tired of being angry
So very weary of seeing dark clouds

All the time, trying to hold back the bile
From gushing through my teeth
When every word and every smile
Make me cringe and I've tried
To make a better man out of me
To become the best that I could be
With results varying from bad to worse
So I'll take my time
And I'll bite my tongue
And I'll tread that road once more
To hell with good intentions

You paint me a perfect picture
And I'll find you a flaw
You give me all you have
And I'll tear it apart
Track Name: Inherit The Circle
My cheeks are heavy, my eyelids worn
Lungs are shot and veins torn
Knees bent, blistered palms
Mind spent, failed plans
This modern life is a thresher
Nothing works out ever

So this is the life now
This is how it'll be from now on
So this is a life now?

What a fucking headache
A hangover to last me a decade
Traded friends for a career plan
Lose it, and it's Diazepam

I need a pill or a hundred
I need at least a dozen drinks
I need a lap to relapse into
I need somebody to hold my head
I'll let it be whoever

Day by day we wither away
When we inherit this circle
Track Name: Nails Dug Deep
Branches of silver
Woven like web
Crawl into the sun
To become one
They're set alight
Fractures against the sky

Come sunshine
Your body entwined with mine
Hearts combined
We tear down the sky
Pulsing to the same beat
Steely fingers rip through my back
I lose my breath
Blow life into you
You moan words of love and devotion
But I'm just not there

You used to be all I had
But as love gives way to resentment
You've become dead to me

It's claimed that lies hurt
The biggest lie that I've heard
It's not the false that breaks hearts
But the truth that tears us apart
Track Name: Skin Turner
Now that we're acquainted and you couldn't think less of me
Let me open up to deaf ears and refusing eyes
The worst thing anyone's ever said to me is
"You're the worst thing that's ever happened to me"
The worst thing I've ever said is
"I love you" when I didn't mean it

I keep saying we’ll be alright ‘cause I’m a liar
I keep holding your head as I think we’re dying
I keep saying we’ll be alright ‘cause I’m a liar
I keep holding your head as I think we’re dying
I think we’re dying ‘cause you’re pulling me down
You’re pulling me down

Our apartment is so quiet
Lying with our backs turned
Track Name: Hurt Like Hell
I had never felt better until I had never felt worse
I had never felt better until I had never felt worse
I had never felt better until I had never felt worse
I had never felt better until I had never felt worse
It'll be alright, I'm still young
I have time for wounds to heal
And for deeper ones to appear
And I blame you
And I blame you
Blame you for all you've done
Blame you for all you are
Track Name: Picking Scabs
I've spent forever and ever
Trying to fill this page
A white sheet of paper
A sign of surrender

Paralysing hatred and empty space
Nothing I say really takes
I'm all used up
I've become a mourner

Since you pulled away from me
Since we broke my spine cracked like a twig
I effectively lost my centre
And I'm decidedly on the decline

Been kicking these walls for too long
To realise what really went wrong
No wonder I'm all alone again
Empty eyes, I'm an empty space

I suppose it's high time to clear the air
And lay it all out there
Own up to the shit I've done
And the mistakes I've made

Being selfish, being an asshole
Being distant and drifting away
Not being there when you needed me
Because it's always all about me

I know I come across as bitter
But there's just so much sadness you can take
Before it rubs off on you
I need to be wanted, not needed

If you ever want anything
Best be prepared to lose it
Because everything expires
Everything eventually dies

And the process of healing
Becomes an endless campaign of getting even
It's not your fault but mine;
No one could ever hurt me like I could

No one could ever hurt me like I could
