Track Name: Gutter Love
This was the last time I let you
crawl back into my life.
The trail ends here
of the seemingly endless strife.
Each time ended the same way,
with me broke and stranded.
All my time put in,
left empty handed.
It’s my own fault for giving this another shot.
A sail in the doldrums is all that I got.
You can keep the memories.
You can keep your poison.
I just want my fucking time back.
I’ve spent far too long sitting under these city lights.
Struggling through the night with the same old fight.
So sick so fucking tired
of you dragging me through the dirt.
I’m done feeling like I'm not enough.
You live your life with a shallow heart.
A rotten soul thats been torn apart.
Threw me away with such disregard.
I realize now
that I need you
like I need a hole in my head.
I’lll burn my whole life down
just to get the smell of you
out my bed.
This was the last time i let you crawl back into my life.
The trail ends here of this seemingly endless strife
Track Name: The One Who Knocks w/ Andrew of Mastiff
Crucifixion surrenders syringes in me.
Don't blow the candle out...
Dig deep to set me free
I am my own death dealer.
I am the one who knocks.
I am my own damn killer.
I am the one who knocks.


Looking at my past with knives in my eyes.
A walk down memory lane.
Like a parade of ghosts,
the loved ones I've lost.
Past the turning point of problems I've caused.
I have seen;
the pain I've caused.
I have seen;
the death of gods.

Stress increases
the vice around my neck.
Internal war;
that I've been fighting embodiment of deceit.
Morals wrapped in hard concrete.
The days get longer;
in a room
with no windows, stranded...
I walk along the crevice of my shattered existence.
Track Name: Lost Potential
Creeping in from the shadow of doubt.
It's hard to breath when your 6 feet under ground.
Buried alive under broken bones and shattered dreams;
just another story of lost potential.

My mistake
My demise

Each step forward is two steps back.
I'm stuck in the mud and I cant react.
I guess its time to face the facts.
There's no going back

It's a pity when you see your future break before your eyes.
So I'll sink into the bed of my demise.

Feels like im walking in circles;
never to live up to any purpose.
No idea what to do next
I guess im just stuck in a rut.
Track Name: The Fine Line w/ Cameron of These Streets
Stuck in a spotlight of dagger eyes, so unaccepting.
Forever doomed to a terminal existence, of suffering.

I try to stand against;
but i feel my knees are buckling;
under the pressure of this world.
and for this ill....(carry out)


Ready for the lights to go out,
The switch in my hand the shape of a trigger;
Stop these problems from ever getting bigger...
I'm sinking and keep getting deeper.

It's a fine line I walk on the edge of insanity.
Nauseous from trials of humanity.
I don't care if i feel normal again.
My existence is the only mortal sin

Dark skies continue to grow.
My eyes set on oblivion.
Mistook my strength.
I'm losing this fight and my will to win!

Will i keep on?
Or will i crush under this heavy weight?
Track Name: Venom Spill
Bridges burned
and I've had enough;
The real ones know
that you ain't that tough.
The reasoning
of the venom you spill
I've never understood.
Theres nothing you could do;
To take the knife out my back.

(Mother fucker)

It's a long walk
down my last nerve.
I never expected
that you'd be the one to play
the game of a snake.

You got me caught in a web of lies
conflicting and victimized
Now I'm cutting ties.

Had enough of foot prints
on my back.
No coming back.
No coming back from this mistake

No rules in the game of a snake

Nothing you can do to take the knife out my back
Track Name: Days of The Phoenix (tribute to AFI)
I remember when I was told of story of crushed velvet,
candle wax, and dried up flowers
The figure on the bed all dressed up in roses, calling
Beckoning to sleep,
Offering a dream

words were as mystical as purring animals
The circle of rage
The ghosts on the stage appeared
The time was so tangible, I'll never let it go
Ghost stories handed down, reached secret tunnels below
No one could see me

I fell into yesterday
Our dreams seemed not far away
I want to, I want to, I want to stay
I fell into fantasy

The words were as mystical as purring animals
The circle of rage
The ghosts on the stage appeared
The time was so tangible, I'll never let it go
Ghost stories handed down, reached secret tunnels below
No one could see me

I fell into yesterday.
Our dreams seemed not far away
I want to, I want to, I want to stay.
I fell into fantasy

No one could see me

I fell into yesterday
Our dreams seemed not far away
I want to, I want to, I want to stay
I fell into fantasy

Our dreams seemed not far away
