Track Name: Walls & Anchors
See I refuse to be the breath of this routine
And I don’t wanna be the pulse inside this death machine
And while we slave away we slowly come undone
Because we just can’t stop what has already begun

Let’s walk these streets and don’t look back
Just live a life without regret
Your perfect world, it has a price
But you don’t seem to realize

And one fine day, I’ll pack my bags and run away
To seek my fortune somewhere else
Cause deep in my heart I know
There must be something more to this

We feed from every lie, we never question why
Just doing as we’re told until the very day we die
That’s how it always was and how it will always be
Everyone craves to be, oh so equal and free

Vanished is the innocence
We held once
This society always takes the best of us
It sucks us out till there’s nothing left
Nothing left
There’s nothing left but an empty hull
Just like you are

And one fine day, I’ll pack my bags and run away
To seek my fortune somewhere else
Cause deep in my heart I know
There must be something more to this

These walls and anchors won’t ever hold me back
These walls and anchors won’t ever hold me back
Track Name: Truth & Purpose
It’s been a year or so
And I have grown
Searching for something
I couldn’t find at home

I saw the beauty
Learned that silence is gold
My hands are shaking
From the winter’s cold

I know exactly where
Each step I make is taking me
But I’m not sure if this is really where I’m supposed to be

One last look back
At the life I’ve left behind
In exchange for everything I couldn’t find
One last deep breath
Before I take this leap of faith

A Restless soul
Chasing after dreams all alone
Won’t lay my life
In hands that aren’t my own

My heart is heavy
And I can’t see
How much longer will
These feet carry me?

At night I crawl
Into my shelter
All alone, on my own
Over mountains I stumble and fall

And while approaching my last breath I realized
That happiness means absolutely nothing
If it can’t be shared!


Stop talking of better times to come
The here and now is everything that counts
But when you grow out of your aimless
It’s hard to find any purpose or truth

Rather than fortune give me freedom,
Rather than fame give me love,
Rather than fear give me truth,
I know enough is never quite enough
Track Name: Vacant Eyes
These are the places where I can feel.
Our days are numbered, the fate’s been sealed
Still you hold your pride like it’s all you have left
Waiting alone, I cannot resist.
Feeling this emptiness I’ve never missed.
Please someone give me a reason to believe
in myself again

I am the desire that burns inside,
The spark of hope that you can’t fight
I am the glimpse of light that shines through under the door
Oh will you dare to open it once more?

When all is fair and nothing’s sacred
I can see through your disguise
When all is fair and nothing’s sacred
I’ll unmask your lies

We won’t give up this fight, we can’t just run and hide
We stare in vacant eyes, blinded by shallow lies
We won’t give up this fight, we can’t just run and hide
We stare in vacant eyes, blinded by shallow lies
Blinded by shallow lies

We’ve grown numb from all the pain
How can we ever make it up for what we’ve done
And when we fall it’s only memories that remain
So I’ll try my best to be a better man

We’ve grown numb from all the pain
How can we ever make it up for what we’ve done
And when we leave this world behind, then we'll be saying
At least we fuckin’ tried!
Track Name: Distant Memories
Late night and I can’t sleep
my busy mind keeps me awake
I watch the scenery outside my window
trying to recall these memories from long ago

And I force myself to admit my mistakes

For all the things we didn’t do
and all the dreams that didn’t come true
I guess now, it’s time to move on/
For every promise that I’ve ever broken
and all that words that remained unspoken
I know that, it’s time to let you go

All these distant memories
That echo through my mind
I wish that I could turn back time
But now it’s too late to rewind

When we were young and unafraid
we didn’t need reason, didn’t care for our fate
but the pictures once so bright and clear
they’ve begun to fade away now, anyway

It’s been 4 years now my old friend
I hope you're doing just alright
I’ve given up on wondering why
I know we’ll meet again in the end

If you can hear me, let these words echoe back to me
The heart discovers what the eyes just can't see
I’ll remember your name cause it's all I can do
I’ll let this melody carry the ghost of you
Track Name: Endless Roads
We stray through this world alone
and walk on endless roads unknown,
each and every step we take
brings us one day closer to death,

So I shed my skin to wash away the doubt that lives within

As I depart with great expectations in my heart,
I try to seize every day, grab every chance that comes my way,

I shed my skin, I shed my skin to wash away the doubt that lives within
These endless roads, that I call home, they never let me go

no second chances, no guarantees
no turning back and no boundaries

We tremble under the weight of regret
and the problems that hold us down
And when we're starting to collapse
There's no one else around


I won’t give up
As long as there’s something worth fighting for
But I can’t carry this burden alone
Would you say you’re by my side?
Need you to save me from myself
